wireless connecting only if signal is excellent

Q: wireless connecting only if signal is excellent

i have a new toshiba laptop t-230
the wireless connection, does connect if the signal with the router is excellent or very good. if we count it with the signal green lines, it connects only wen the strength is 4-5 lines.
if is lower, even 3 (good signal) or 2 lines (fair signal) it wont connect. If i connect normally with excellent signal and move in another room with good signal, it still disconnects. my other 4 laptops and iphone in the house work fine.

1. i have uninstalled the drivers and put new ones.. same thing
2. i have formated the laptop but still no luck.
3. i have put a usb wireless card and it is working fine.

it seems that there is an issue with my atheros AR9285 card. can I ask from toshiba to replace the network card? is there anything else i havent tried?

thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: wireless connecting only if signal is excellent

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Well, I think you hit the drivers, and another NIC works, so I'd have them replace it, seems like we're running out of other possibilities.

Hi. I've recently replaced an antenna to my wirelss router/print server. While it shows a good speed and either very good or excellent connection, I keep getting 'Limited or No Connection' when trying to access my secure network from my laptop. I can access other's networks so I know it's not the laptop. Similary, I am online on a separate PC so I know it's not the cable modem. I recently moved and am wondering if I need to change the IPs, etc. I did not change any of my service providers so I was hoping for a smooth transition. I appreaciate any feedback. Oh yeah, I've already power cycled and no luck.

I have an intermittent problem with one of my PCs on my wireless home network. While I always have excellent signal strength, most of the time I can not connect to the internet. All the other computers on my wireless network work fine and I can always connect to my neighbors wireless network to get internet access with the problem PC(A dell latitude E6410 with windows 7). When I have no internet access on my network and I run some diagnostics it says that my default gateway is not available. Any suggestions on what might be the issue and how to resolve the issue?

My Winbook U100 will not connect to my wireless network even though I just returned from a trip where it connected to other networks with no extra effort on my part. When I left two weeks ago, it connect fine. The card is an 802.11bgn 1T2R Mini Card. I am running Windows XP Home and have 2GB ram and 160 GB hard drive. The card keeps trying to connect my network stating 54Mps and Excellent signal strength; however, the View Available Wireless Networks does not show any networks in range. The netbook is sitting within three feet of the modem and router. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this madding situation?

We have a Belkin router hooked up to our desktop and cable modem, and two laptops using that wireless connection. As of tonight, all our computers are failing to make this connection. I'm online now thanks to an unsecured connection I was able to hook into.

The icon in the lower right of the screen tells us, "Signal Strength: Excellent; Status: Connected." What could possibly be going wrong?

This isn't a problem with Wireless Zero Configuration, incidentally; my wife had that problem in the past, but that isn't it. Our three computers all insist we're connected just fine, yet no websites will come up on any of them.

Any theories? How could I even know where to begin?

Hello there,

I've been having this problem for awhile now, my wireless connection periodically goes and reads "No Internet Access", despite still be "connected" to my connection, with 5 bars "Excellent" signal. The only quick"fix" I've found helps is "renewing my IP"(ipconfig /renew), and when doing so I get the message (see attached picture).

Despite the "error message", this still fixes it, causing my connection symbol to turn into a refresh symbol, and ~5 sec later the is gone and my connection is "restored".

But how can I fix this for good, what is wrong? I can only assume that my GATEWAY is scrambling IPs, and every so often (about 30-45 minutes) it does this, and I have to "reset my IP", but im CLUELESS.

Please help!

Thank you SO much!

A:No connectivity despite excellent signal

Having both the Belkin Wireless Controller and Windows Wireless controller on at the same time could cause this. Try turning one of them off.

Not sure how to turn the Belkin off, but here is how to turn off the Windows controller.

Go into Control Panel, Administration Tools, Services.
Go to the bottom of the list to find the Windows Controller.
Wireless Zero Configuration for XP, WLAN Auto Configuration for Vista/7.
Double click on the controller name to pull up Properties Window.
On the General tab,
Next to Startup type, click the down arrow and select Disabled from the list.
At the bottom under Service status click the Stop button.
Click OK to apply the changes.

Usually the install cd gives you the choice of just loading the drivers and using the Windows Controller, which is what I did with my Belkin USB adapter.

Hi, Im extremely frustrated with this problem.I am using a built in atheros
AR5005G network adaptor and cannot connect to my router at home. I have checked the DHCP to make sure its enabled and the router seems to be set up fine. All i get is a limited connection with excellent signal. It says acquiring IP address then hits limited connectivity. The laptop can connect to all other networks I have tried (relatives, friends) but wont connect at home. Other laptops in the house connect though. Any help would be appreciated. And the laptop that wont connect is a toshiba sattelite L25.


A:Limited Connection with Excellent signal

Go to Start/Run and type CMD and hit enter. In the Command Prompt type in Ipconfig /all the Default Gateway is the IP address of your router. Now ping the router. Now type Ping and the IP address of the Default Gateway. You should get a reply. If it times out, then restart the modem, router, and PC.

Alright TSGers, I need your help for this one.
I have 5 wireless PCs and a Linksys WRT160N router. 2 PCs are using Wireless-N Cards and the others are using Wireless-G. The problem is that they all connect to the router and have excellent signal strength but the speed is horrible. Even in the same room on wireless the speeds are horrible. However, when you connect directly to the router, speeds are out of this world. Any ideas? This is happening on multiple routers. (Netgear Wireless-N, Linksys WRT150N) What could the interference be?

A:Excellent signal strength but little to no internet connectivity

Copied this from a post by pedroguy.

Ok:This is what we know about that Atheros adapter.Boils down to two possibilities :
Encryption and or driver issue.
I think both of those are covered below.
Courtesy of ETAF and Terrynet on the Networking Forum:

Atheros AR5007EG & AR5007
We have recently been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters over the last few months, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and windows Vista.

The adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
--- Please post back here if that works or does not work.

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver." That apparently has worked for some posters.

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section, as some manufactures, appear to now have a working driver available.
Toshiba - update has worked for some PCs
HP The latest HP Atheros driver dated Sept 2010 has fixed the issue - so check the driver date, However, that does NOT apply to all HPs / Compaqs machines
- the poster did an online scan for driver updates on the HP website here HP Product Detection which resulted in a solution. Solved: Can't connect to internet wirelessly - Atheros AR5007 Wifi through Clear Comm - Tech Support Guy Forums

If you can post the Make and EXACT model of your PC here, along with the windows version you have and we will see if we can find the driver and will post a link as a reply here.

--- 3) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue

--- 4) A few posters here with the same issue have found that the driver from this site ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows resolved the issue

hi all, im having this weird problem for 5 days now, its really driving me crazy, so i have an alienware laptop, never had any problem before, this problem only happend about 5 days ago, everytime i start my laptop the network works fine, but after about 15 mins, the wifi automatically disconnects although the signal indicates excellent, i cannot browse internet or run anything that is connected to network, only by restarting my laptop can fix this; one thing funny about this is that if i open any sort of web page before this problem occurs, i can still browse that certain web page even after this problem occurs; ive tried to flush dns, reset net interface, obtain ip address manually, none of them worked, so here im hoping that somebody on this forum can help me out.

I would think about resetting the router if you haven't done so already. After resetting the router go through the wireless settings again, set your SSID, password and also use WPA2 security with AES encryption.

So I have a wireless network setup in our 4 bedroom apartment and I am connecting wirelessly on my desktop with a usb drive(hub is in another room). Half of the time I will have an excellent connection at 54Mbps, and then for whatever reason, will just plummet to 1Mbps but still says excellent signal strength. Right now its working perfectly fine, however an hour or so from now, will probably crash randomly. I have a feeling its my firewall because its disabled right now, but im not sure. Any other ideas?

A:Signal Strength = Excellent, Speed = 1 Mbps

Make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter.

Could be the adapter or router beginning to fail. How to recover after the bandwidth plummets?

In an apartment building there are lots of opportunities for wireless interference, such as from 2.4Ghz cordless phones and other networks on the same or close channel.

Firewalls either block or not; I have never heard of them affecting speed as in your symptoms.

My computer is not connecting to the internet, despite the network I'm trying to connect to having "Excellent Signal Strength."
My computer is running Windows 7 64-bit, 6GB of RAM and 1TB HDD.
I can't figure out any logical reason why I shouldn't be able to connect to the internet.
Some info:
-The wireless router was replaced recently (brand new one)
-The new network and password are not the problem (as in I've connected to this network before).
-I tried troubleshooting (and to no surprise, Windows troubleshooting tools were no help at all).
-This is a wireless connection
I don't have any idea what could be causing this. Another computer in the same house, as well as cell phones can connect to the network fine.

This has only happened to me before when I've been too far away or obstructed from the router. I know the router is fine because this computer (a different one) works with it fine, but mine doesn't.

Any suggestions? I feel like I've tried everything.

Hi Sue. There are some more things we can try.

1. Do a System Restore to when the wireless worked.

2. Disable encryption on the router and connect via wireless. Assuming success, re-enable the router's encryption and reconnect the wireless computer.

3. Shut everything down. Then bring 'em up in order: modem, router, wireless computer, other computers.

4. Reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it. Repeat step 3 if needed.

Alienware X-51
Win 7 Home Premium SP1
Thompson TG585 v8 Modem /WPA2-PSK

Scope of Problem:
This is a Desktop LOADING based problem.
NOT a connection dropping, fading while in use problem.
Other Devices work fine.
Same problem with previous Modem.

Wireless icon shows spinning busy symbol.
If it connects fine, then it will Remain fine until the next Restart

If connect fails then yellow exclamation mark shows over TaskBar Icon.
Viewing connection it shows as Limited Access, but signal strength is 5 Bars
A Manual Disconnect, then reConnect will always establish a working connection (sometimes needs two attempts).

Signal Strength is ALWAYS Excellent, No other devices have issues with WiFi.

This is a persistent and long term problem which has "survived" improved Modem placement , ISP directed settings changes, and a new Modem.

[ Other threads all seem to be about No Connection OR Dropping/Fading/Poor Connection. This isn't ].

A:WiFi Limited Access, Signal Strength Excellent, works if I reconnect

Modem was the problem.

Recently the Thomson V8 was replaced with a telco provided Huawei HG630B.
The issue disappeared instantly, there is now just a little lag and then connection.

So problem solved.

This started right after i upgraded itunes on my laptop, which i never do because nothing good has ever happened from that. So after i tried to upgrade, which said it couldn't complete, i turn off my computer and when i turned it back on it took longer to load and a message came up saying "Error access violation at 0x22173148 (tried to read from 0x00000060) program terminated" i've never seen that before so obviously something's wrong, the internet doesn't connect and when i click on my wireless connection icon it says "another application is controlling wireless adapter". Intelproset wireless says its searching for a connection and sometimes finds the secure one i have but and will say "excellent signal quality" but a few seconds later says "error in connection". So i'm using another computer in my house, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I just installed 32-bit win7 ultimate on my laptop, and am (still) having a spot of bother getting my internets from a public router located near my girlfriend's place.

My problem is the following: I connect to the router fine and the signal quality is excellent, but there is no internet access at all.
The wireless connection icon in the taskbar shows a yellow warning triangle, and when hovering over it with my mouse pointer I read the following: "no internet access".

Last week when I still had xp on the laptop I had the exact same problem: excellent connection, no internet access.
Both with xp and win7 I had no problems at all connecting to my router at home.

I have been connecting to the troublesome router for months on my iphone, without any issues. Any random macbook also connects to it without any problems.

When I run diagnostics I am told the following: "wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration".

TCP/IPv4 is set to "obtain an IP address/DNS server automatically", and has been since the beginning, with DHCP enabled.

I've tried anything and everything I found floating around on the internet (including disabling TCP/IPv6 as well as a whole slew of other settings), but to no avail.

Obviously, my wireless card (Intel wireless wifi link 4965AGN) works perfectly (works great on my home router), and so does the public router from which I'm trying to get internet access (works admirably on anything mac: iphone, macbooks).

My guess is the problem lies somewhere in my settings, and I have been going over all of the relevant settings I could find some twenty times. No love.

I really hope any of you can offer some advice, I'm getting super angry!

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I also updated the wireless card driver to the very latest, no worky

A:Signal is excellent and speed is 1 mbps to 8 mbps?

From a quick look at you post, I think you are not using the right driver for the USB adapter. Also, XP has to be up to date to work with wireless.Does the computer have an Ethernet card?Can you possibly get an Ethernet cable and run it directly from the tourer to you old XP computer? If you can do that, you will have to do the Internet Wizard again so that it includes the Ethernet card in the network.Older versions of XP that are not up to date only work with Ethernet. Unless you disable wireless security. Which is a bad idea. Windows XP has a hard time with wireless security.However, I am not sure that would fix lour problem. Sometimes you have to do the XP Network wizard three times before it comes out right.,146456.0.html

i'm not sure but this is what i would try:

Make sure wireless is turned on, on the laptop as some have a switch specifically for that.
Make sure that you do not have a third part wireless network connection program running.
From start, settings, click network connections. right click you're wireless connection and select properties, click the wireless networks tab, make sure the box is checked where it says "use windows to configure...". then below that click and remove all the preferred networks that are there. then click okay and attempt to reconnect to the network via searching for available networks and double clicking your desired network.

My Sprint HTC EVO phone is cheaper and faster than my AT&T broadband connection so I want to drop AT&T and use sprint.

The problem is I have a few devices such as a Blu-ray player, a Direct TV DVR and other items that need to be hard wired.

I want to use my phone as a WiFi hot spot then pick up the signal with a device and plug my Direct TV DVR into the device with an ethernet cable.

Sprint was unable to help and someone on another non-tech site suggested a Engenius Network ESR9850.

Hello, I am having problems with IE 8 on my desktop. I am connected to the interent wirelessly using a network adapter and using Windows Vista for my OS . I am connected at 4.8 m/bs and the connection status is excellent. For some reason IE andy other browser Goole Chrome will connect but it will take a very long time just to even load the home page or visit anoter site.

I have not had this problem before and was surfing the Internet very fast a few days ago with the same connection speed and status. I have already tried deleting cookies, history, temporary files. Ran a virus scan. Ran a disk clean up and reinstalled both of the browsers does anyone know a solution to this problem or has had the same problem on the past?

A:Internet Explorer running very slowly; wireless connection excellent

You could have a bad add-on.Try running IE in No Add-ons Mode. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) - If this fixes the issue, then go to Tools -> Manage Add-ons and enable the add-ons one by one to find which one was causing the problem.

You can also try resetting Internet Explorer's settings by going to Tools > Internet Options and then the "Advanced" tab, and click "Reset..."

Let me know if this solves your problem.

We have a nice signal from the router until about the same time each day. Only cable tv modem is available. Evidently the country neighbors do lots of internet during the afternoon.

Is there a way to boost the signal coming down the cable line ? The cable tv company has installed new cables from the pole into the house. We have installed all new cables in the house.

All of the boosters I've seen are for after the wireless signal gets to the cable modem.

Thanks !


A:wireless signal boost to help low signal from cable tv ?

This is a known issue with cable connections. When its not heavily used the signal, speeds can be good, but when it is used heavily things can deteriorate.

However, how do you know that the cable signal is changing? Unless someone from the cable company has measured the cable signal you don't know that is what is causing the problems. I don't think the signal level on the cable side will affect the wi-fi signal level on that side. They are two separate functions. If your wi-fi signal is deteriorating it has to be some other interference.

Going back to the cable signal level, I had a change every day around 1PM and the cable modem would lose sync. It turned out to be a bad underground cable between the main cable distribution amp and an intermediate amp in our neighborhood (every thing is under ground). It took a special crew to find and fix this, the tech that came to the house knew "nothing". I had to keep calling everyday when it went bad and after the problem went "chronic" then they got the cable crew on it.

I have a newly purchased TP-LINK TL-WN951N wirelass pci adapter with bad packet loss and the peculiar problem of having near full signal untill i connect to the router, after which it quickly drops to one bar. A ping -t durin connection shows that immediately after connection the ping is reasonable and reliable, but after a few second, when the signal drops the ping suddenly starts timing out every 5 packets or so. I have installed the latest drivers from the website and no improvement. Other people using laptops in the same room have perfect signal and my usb wifi cards work fine untill they overheat. Note that the wifi card also has an antenna installed which is placed on top of my monitor. Any help would be much apreciated

I am using windows configure the device and even tried to have it repair the connection but it comes back claiming that it is unable to renew the IP address. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


A:Strong signal, no connection one pc but connecting on another


Usual cause is a faulty key or incorrect SSID, first thing to do is deactivate the security on the router and see if you can connect, if so the problem lies with either of the aforementioned.

If you cant connect the fault is with either the network card or the software, swap the cards around and try them in the other PC.

Logical progression will bring the answer.

If you are connecting to a Hot Spot at a store or some city that has it free, then we can try to assist you.

But if there is a unsecure WiFi network in your area that is NOT yours we can not help you at all.

Our stance is that it is considered stealing since it is not your internet connection you are trying to steal someone else's internet. We view ti as trying to hack someone else's computer. Since you technically have to connect to their router to due such a act.

From here on out this will be meet with stern and swift action.

Hello. We have connected a HP 8200 Elite to our Samsung TV with a displayport to hdmi converter 1 year ago, and it worked well. A week ago we bought a new TV table and after reconnecting the HP 8200 to our Samsung TV we get no signal to the TV.Yesterday I tested to connect a HP monitor with displayport to the HP 8200 with a displayport cable, and it did work.Today I was and switched the displayport to hdmi converter at the Kjell & CO reseller, BUT WE STILL GET NO SIGNAL TO THE SAMSUNG TV. I have connected a monitor with the RGB contact / cable, and have tested to change the display settings to make it work, BUT WITH NO SUCCESS. Could a straight displayport to hdmi cable solve the problem? Regards Roger

I randomly pick the above. It has 2 antenna. Is this card gives a better signal than a motherboard that has an embedded Wifi module?

because the situation I was at today is, these folks has a toshiba all in 1, which comes with an embedded wifi module in that All in 1. The wireless router/Cable modem is at the basement, and some times they lost signal.

So I'm thinking of something like Linksys WRT1900AC that has 4 antenna, and perhaps source out a signal booster. But if that does not work, it would be time to get a real PC that c/w PCI wireless card.

Do you guys think there is a sizeable gain on signal strength on these PCI wireless card vs. embedded Wifi module on motherboard?

A:Does PCI wireless card has better signal than embedded wireless module inside PC

I would try power over Ethernet. But if you must use wifi the all in one probably has its antenna around the screen. I would look at range entenders. They are getting cheap where they just act as an access point and will allow you to extend their coverage

I'm trying to use a router to establish a wireless connection with a machine running XP Home Edition, Service Pack 2. I've connected successfully in the past with other machines (including now, as I write this), so it doesn't seem to be the router or the modem that's the problem. What's more, it's not XP, since there's another machine that can connect fine.

So, I'm stumped. I've contacted both my ISP and the manufacturer of the router, but not much help there.

Any thoughts? The machine sees the wireless connection fine, will attempt to connect and will actually say that it was successful in connection -- but there's no access to the internet and the status is actually limited or no connectivity.

A:Connecting to Wireless Router keeps connecting and disconnecting

I hate to say it, but since you have done everything I would have done, its possible the wireless adapter is broken/not functioning correctly. Is the product still under warranty? Especially since you stated that other devices connect just fine.
So its probably not the router.
The only other thing I can think of to try would be to buy another wireless router and test it with that.
If you have no problems, something is amiss.
You could also set your router back to factory defaults and try again.

Got a wierd problem here.

Got a Zyxel wireless modem router. The wireless part works perfect but when I plug in a RJ-45 (ethernet cable) into on of the ports and then into the network card on a desktop computer - its gets no internet. I can login to the router from the desktop fine.

I thought this was the computer it-self.

So I got a laptop, and plugged the same cable into it - still no internet connection.
(The cable was replaced with another RJ-45 - so it is not the cable - this problem is baffling me)

Any ideas anyone?

Hi all!

I have a fujitsu notebook with a atheros wireless 5005g inegrated card. To make a long story short; when looking for wireless networks with the standard vista "wireless manager" I see full signal strength before connecting. After connecting it goes down to 2 (out of 6) levels. When using another computer connected to the same router, it receives full speed, both before and after connection. My wireless connection also disconnects alot, with a waiting periode of 30 seks or so before I`m able to reconnect.

I`ve seen similar problems (and solutions) for Linux users, but this does not help an average computer skilled guy like me.

My router is a Thomson Speedtouch 546i set up with wep security. (also tried Wpa etc)

appreciate all help I can get.


A:Low wireless signal with Atheros wireless 5005g

Hi Chrisdue,

To make a better analysis of your problem :
- does that other computer also run vista?
- which connection is lost ? to the router or to the internet?
- what is the driver you use for your wireless adapter? has it been signed ? did you look if any updates are available for the wireless card driver?

If internet connectivity is lost, I think upgrading the firmware of your router might be a good option.
If it's the connectivity to the router only we might need the information above to do a better troubleshooting.

Kind regards,

I want to expand my router's wireless signal in order to cover the whole house. I already have two modem/routers. Does it have anything to do with wireless bridge or something? Can I do it without using any kind of software? So note that I want to use the basic router which will have internet connection and use a second router to increase the wireless signal. It's crucial that I find a solution as soon as possible. Thanks in advance!

A:How do I use two wireless routers to expand wireless signal?

One router will supply DNS and DHCP (IP addresses), the other can be configured to be an access point. To achieve total coverage, run a CAT-5e cable from the main router to the access point (which will be located across the house), and have both use the same SSID.

I try to help them to re-initialize that RE by going thru the instruction totally no signal on a sunny day Now assuming it s a defective DOA unit is there some range extender that is high quality And has a nice and simple setup software just in case pushing the WPS button doesn t work And more importantly should we unplug the extender when you don t use it Or are you suppose to always leave it plug in If you unplug it would you lost all the setting on that extender nbsp

A:Connecting wireless router to wireless access point

Sounds like you want a Wireless Bridge (or AP Client). If you get a decent signal in the desired location and the WAP includes Wireless Bridge mode it should work fine. I use one (now discontinued, so I won't recommend it) myself for a camera whose integrated wireless no longer works.

I'm hoping this will also increase the wireless signal in the atticClick to expand...

That requires Repeater (or Range Extender) mode. If the WAP includes Wireless Bridge mode it will (I'm pretty sure) also include this mode. I understand that some units can do both jobs (wireless bridge and repeater) at the same time.

I didn't look at the specs or manuals for the units you mentioned; just indicating what you should be looking for.

Im a bit confused with what I need to do with my set up so any advice will be tried and will hopefully work.

I just had charter install a wireless cable modem into my house and it was put in my study. however, i would now like to get my xbox 360 running as well as the internet for my blue-ray player and tv. So i bought a wireless router.

The modem from charter is called: Ubee wireless cable modem (from charter)
The wireless router purchases is: Netgear N300 wireless router (wnr2000v3)

I am trying to connect them wirelessly. Like I said above, my modem is in the study and the router is about 30 feet away in the living room area. Is there any way to connect those?

Yes, best and maybe only way is by ethernet cable--LAN to LAN port if you want everything on the same local network.

Does the router have a Wireless Bridge (or AP Client) mode? If not, if it has an AP mode there is a small chance you may still accomplish it.

Im trying to find out if a network combination is possible with the particular hardware I have at the moment.

I have looked thourgh other threads but could not find exactly this.

The hardware I have is : Hawking HWBA54g wireless bridge and a linksys WRT54G2 V1 router

I have the Hawking bridge setup picking up a wireless network from the hanger across from it, it picks this up fine and I can plug a wired connection and use the net.

What I want to do is plug the WRT54G Router into the Bridge to broadcast the connection wirelessly in that hanger.

Is this possible with the hardware I have?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou

A:Connecting a wireless Router to A wireless bridge

I don't see why not. You should be able to simply plug them together. If the remote wireless network has the same 192.168.1.x base address as your Linksys, you will have to configure the Linksys to a different base address, say You obviously also want the channel of the Linksys as far away from the bridge channel as possible to minimize crosstalk.

My room mate and I have a Linksys wireless router connected to our cable modem. He can access the Internet on his laptop through the router, but I'm having trouble connnecting on my desktop (windows XP). I have a TRENDnet TEW-424UB wireless USB adaptor, and it's fully installed, but I have no idea how to get it to connect through the router. The setup didn't walk me through anything beyond installing the USB adaptor, and I'm entirely new to using wireless connections. I don't even know where to start.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Connecting a wireless USB adaptor to a wireless router

Hi Lieskens, and welcome to TSG.

Did you get a printed User Guide with the adapter or a PDF file for the User Guideon a CD? If not, there is a download link for an Adobe Acrobat PDF file on the Trendnet web site:

The guide seems include the set-up procedure for establishing a connection. You will need to know the Wireless SSID of the router and any encryption key being used.

Hi Wondered if please! help Signal Wireless - anyone could help me identify a problem that I seem to be having I ve Wireless Signal - help please! had a wireless network set up for a good while using a Dlink DI- router with a MEG connection from Virgin Telewest using their standard modem Wireless Signal - help please! The router and modem connection point is upstairs directly above where I m trying to connect For the first few months this setup was spot on I was getting decent speeds and decent connection reliability but for the past month it seems to have got slightly shaky the speed has dropped considerably as an average sometimes fast sometimes slow slow most of the time but most frustrating is the reliability of the connection I ll be happliy surfing along and suddenly it ll fail to open a page sometimes I see the Wireless symbol in my intray looking for the connection a few seconds later sometimes it stays connected throughout But the laptop then finds the connection again after about seconds Is this a classic router signal strength problem or does it sound like a telewest internet speed problem or both I tried a speed test on toast net yesterday and apparently my connection is only just faster than dial-up which is slightly worrying Any help would be greatly appreciated as it s a slightly annoying dilemma nbsp

A:Wireless Signal - help please!

This a pretty good wf-router, have you release and renew the ip address from your ISP lately. How's the LAN is that stable? WAN is your problem then? If you stay close to the connection to router how it good fair or bad in signal strenght?

Also you have DSL or Cable modem? Sometimes the DSL modems act up plus have your ISP check your lines and DSL strength. But if you w-f router is dropping the connections you need to check the logs and you might have to reset the router to see if that clears it up. Firmware updates are good to do..

Here's the dlink link for you w-f router

I have two computers that use a wireless network. I have a linksys modem on one computer and a wireless usb adapter on the other. I have had this for a few years and just realized that it is possible that the linksys equipment could be my problem. The problem is that my internet connection goes in and out all the time. If I am on AIM I constantly loose my signal. It connects and reconnects every few minutes. If I get a new modem and wireless adapter would the same thing happen?

Hi,just decided to changed wired modem router to a wireless one.

First purchased a Netgear DG834PN ADSL2+ RangeMax MIMO-G Wireless Modem Router.

Worked ok,but range was poor furthest point from router.

Rang ebuyer from where i purchased product,recommended to get Netgear DGNB2100 Wireless-N Modem Router and USB Adapter Kit.

Had same problems as above,rang ebuyer tech support. He changed some settings on router(not sure what,think he changed channel and type of security)still poor range.

Now when i look on network symbol on taskbar,i have 2 wireless connections.

One is internal card on Dell vista laptop,other is USB device.On furthest point in house,Dell card shows one bar,USB shows two bars on signal strength. Dell shows local only connectivity,USB limited connectivity.

Also when pc is switched on it takes 4mins to connect to wireless!!!

Please help,my knowledge of above is very limited,just like my wireless connection!!

My neighbor just recently got wireless internet via router. I was wondering if there was a way that I could receive the signal from them to my desktop computer, i can pickup signal from there with my PSP but they live across the road from me, around 200 feet maybe, and i can only get it at about 40-50% when i go right to the road at around 100 feet away. I cant pick it up in my house at all, it could be because of a big green tree in front that messes the signal. I was wondering if there is some kind of super wifi picker uper that i could use to receive internet for use on my desktop for surfing.

A:Wireless signal is not going far

I believe that some hardware and firmware versions of the DI-624 have an Advanced performance settings screen that let you adjust the transmit power to less than 100%. You may want to make sure you are running at full power. If the antennas are detachable, make sure they are screwed on finger tight.

You might also try experimenting with different channel numbers in case a nearby neighbor is running a wireless router on the same or adjacent channel. If you want to be more scientific about it, you can use free WiFi scanning software, like inSSIDer, to see what other wireless access points can be picked up by your computer and what channels they are using.

I reinstalled my wireless adapter driver and now a different message is coming up. saying Make sure the computer is in range of the network and that the settings match the router.

Even though I AM in range as I'm right next to the router, and everyone else in my family can connect to it.

I have a E100 Linksys router and I am not getting any wireless signal on my phone. I got on the internet to get help but ended up getting a scam linksys company who said my firewall security expired and that I had a worm that was preventing the wireless signal from getting out.
Do you have any suggestions on where to start to resolve the no signal dilemma?

You can do that by:

Bringing the wireless devices (router and computer) closer to each other.
Installing gain (min 7 dB) directional antenna on the router and/or computer.
Moving computer around by few inches and monitoring the siganl level for the strongest.

Hey all, i tried to search this board but couldnt find an answer. I have an older Linksys wireless-B router (BEFW11S4). My wireless laptop which is 2 floors above the wireless router, has a really low signal and it makes it hard to use the internet. I remember there was a signal booster that linksys made a few years ago, but I cannot find it anymore. If I upgraded to a more current router, would my signal strength improve? Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks!

A:Really low signal for wireless??

If you buy a new router, with a wide range, it will help.
You are 2 floors above the router, and plus the router is old. This is why you are having connection problems. I'd would say buying a new router is your best option.

ok, I will be honest, I suck at internet stuff and now I have this problem...
I have a Belkin G Wireless Router connected to a free modem given by the internet company
Now, the connection is stable and smooth but the problem is that if I turn on my computer (wired connection), my laptop in the other room cannot access the internet wirelessly.

The connection at the other room just stops dead when I turn on my wired pc. Also, wireless connection is very sporadic, able to connect for a few minutes then its gone...

Any thoughts or suggestions to this problem? Thanks

A:No Wireless Signal... Help Please

would you post an ipconfig /all from the wireless machine when its working correct
And also an ipconfig /all from the cable computer when it disocnnects your other PC
it maybe an IP conflict
{ipconfig /all}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
-> Start
-> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all
-> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all

A black box will appear on the screen -
rightclick in the box
select all
control key + C key - to copy

then reply here and
control key + V to paste

I already had a topic I started about weak signal in a three story house - we'll probably just put a WAP upstairs.

However, even when I'm downstairs and have excellent signal strength, the wireless signal will sometimes just go away. You go to the list of available networks and its not on there, then a minute or so later, it is and it reconnects. What could be causing this? the router? Our cable itself?
