Q: Solved: Enable to see WiFi access point

Hey guys,

There is a difficulty i am facing recently in my girlfriend's house only(in all other places it works fine).
I have recently established a WiFi connection for her to use on her phone. It worked great the first day. It continues to work perfect on her mobile. On my net book, though, i can not see WiFi access point in her house.

It appears randomly for several minutes, i try to connect, it does not want to and then the access point disappears for some uncertain period of time. From time to time it appears and works fine from than on but disappears again if computer goes to sleeping mode...

Do you have any ideas what could it be?

Val

I'm confused. Here's the scenario. It's small office with a wireless network. They just installed a computer downstairs with one of those giant printer, scanner copier things.

I want to connect the printer to the existing network. The computer has a wireless card but the printer doesn't have wireless capabilities and needs to be plugged in via an ethernet cable. They want to be able to print to that printer from upstairs.

Should I get a wireless router and plug the printer into that or should I get an access point? Can you plug the printer into the access point? OR, should I get a wireless print server and plug the printer into one of the ethernet ports?
Thanks,

Bernie

I was at a home today and connected to their private home network on a Surface Pro 4. This showed their network as Connected. However, the internet kept going to a local open BT network instead! I couldn't select this open network anywhere to exclude it. Thinking about it now, I should have disabled/reenabled Wifi first, and then tried a reboot after that. But otherwise, is there any hidden setting to ignore certain networks?

A:Using 'open' access Wifi point instead of connected private wifi.

Hello and welcome to the TenForums

If the home where you were had a BT hub then it most probably was offering both an open connection also known as BT Wifi or BT Fon and also a secured wifi connection which would have an SSID number with a BThub name with some random numbers and letters. It is possible that you connected to the open one and were then automatically directed to a BT broadband page on the internet to pay for use of the BT hotspot service that they provide via customers routers. See this article for more info: http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/d...fi-with-fon%3F

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

A simple question really, if i were to buy a wifi bridge, could i plug it into the internet port on a router to provide that router with internet access?

I have a media centre, connected to a router that does not have internet access, a nas server is also connected to this router. Howevere, connecting a usb wifi dongle to the media pc to acces another router in the house with internet access does not work because there are two connections and it only like 1.

If i connect an ethernet cable from router to router, it works, but i cant have a wire all around the house, so could i plug a bridge into it instead?

hi ya

I have a cheapo ADSL wireliess router (54mbps) in the front of my shop and I want to increase the wireless signal I recieve in the office in the back of the shop. The signal is strong but the connection speed drops as low as 20mbps, also I have a desktop with no wifi card in the same room which I need to connect to the network.
My aim is to get the very best connection speeds between the two rooms without cables. I was thinking that if I got a draft N router and access point then the shop front and office would have a very strong connection allowing me to connect multiple machines via ethernet cables in each room and at the same time increasing my wifi signal in the office. This way I wouldnt need to buy another wifi card and would get better signal for my laptop

I dont know if I am completly off track and would better off getting a good router a range booster and installing wifi cards when needed.

if anyone could give me some help with this and also what routers/access points you would reccomend would be great

many thanks

A:Increasing wifi signal using access point

N will give 300mbp (realtime is 240 to 270mbps) of data in / data out
Range is greater than G but just to let you know your range my vary due to interference in your shop.
2.4GHz cordless phones
Some lighting systems
Microwave devices
But the Draft-N clears up some but not much again depends on what's you have in the shop. Place the wireless router higher away from other electronic devices. Wireless access point can be use but if you want to go without wires then you need one that can do WDS. That WDS taps into the wireless signal that you presently is transmitting in your store.

Another issues you have one of those all-in-one modems that have wireless router feature. They tend to be slower than just using ADSL modem and a wireless router combination. Cable Modem from the Cable company is much faster, but you'll have to be able to get cable business customer plan. But in any case what you have reported is normal 54mbps can range from 24, 48, 54mbps. So for you N would do a better jobs.

I would like to know the step by step to :

1) set up a repeater using an another router.

2) set up an alternate access point (with out Ethernet connection to it if possible using the routerlogin.net)

What are the major advantages and disadvantages of both.

My router is a Netgear N750 Dual Band Gigabit Router and the router I would like to use to boost the signal is the same model.

The problem is that the signal is not strong enough sometimes to use my Galaxy S4 on the other side of the house away from the router. And sometimes the signal does loose strength to my desktop using an internal wireless adapter for WiFi .

The desktop is not so much the issue but the phone is.

So, I thought I would try to increase the range of the router to cover the areas of the house that are receiving a week signal from the router.

Thanks for all your help.

Hi,

I have got this new Lenovo Flex 2 Pro-15 computer a month ago, but I have never got internet on it in my room. My room is 7-8 meters from the access point, and the signal is very weak or not existing. My Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini have a strong signal, if it lays just next to the computer. The computer has fine signal, if it is only 3-4 meters from the access point.

I sent the computer for a repair, and they changed the WLan card, but it did not help. What to do? I think I have installed the correct driver.

Hi,

I think I know what I want, but I just wanted to check before I splashed the cash and made the wrong choice!

I have a Humax Freesat recorder and a Panasonic Blu-Ray player. Both of which have services that need internet access, but neither are WIFI enabled & are the wrong side of the room to be connected via cabled ethernet.

I believe that what I need is to wireless access point? I'd like one with a built in switch as well, as most seem to only come with only one port. The one I found has four, which would be useful as I could replace the poor wireless Xbox 360 dongle.

The one I was looking at was http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004JV42A0/sr=1-1/qid=1325091993/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&qid=1325091993&sr=1-1&seller=. This seems very cheap.

Can anyone tell me if this will do what I want & whether there is anything better without spending a fortune?

Many thanks in advance

Hello, I have a HP Pavillion x360 i3 2 in 1 laptop. I am having problems with the wifi staying connected, and when the laptop is connected to wifi the internet speeds are slow. The speeds are slow as in I cannot stream videos on youtube without constant pausing, and even downloading something as simple as google chrome takes much longer than it is supposed to. In my house there are plenty of other devices that are connected including my old laptop, which, has no problems downloading/streaming and iphones, and an ipad. All of the other devices except my new HP laptop has no problem streaming and downloading. The laptop is extremely new;less than a week old. I have tried updating the network driver, resetting the network driver, and disconnecting then reconnecting the wifi; yet the problem keeps occuring. I do have MacAfee so I guess that could pose a problem, but I am unsure. The adapter I use is a Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565, with internet provided by COMCAST. It could be an adapter problem, but because of the other devices working fine I do not think that the problem is from the adapter. Also, the OS is Windows 8.1

So, I live in my parents' basement, and I'm positioned at the very front of the house down here. The router (a Linksys WRT54GL, stock firmware) is down here with me right on my desk along with the cable modem and moving them is not an option. I need the simplest solution possible, perhaps something I can put upstairs on the main floor.

My parents have a gazebo out in the back as shown below and they like to take their laptop out there and even though it functions, they say that the signal is just barely strong enough and so it reduces the performance noticeably as compared to being in the house (roughly where that chimney is, but on the main floor). I can see that because I'm literally at the front of the house in the basement (as close to the front as you can get, right about in the center and I'm facing West and so the router is right up against the wall). So, the router is as far away from the gazebo as is possible, outside of putting it in the front yard or something.



So as you can see, it's not exactly close! So do they need a WiFi extender, an access point, or should I get a better router? What's the best option without costing too much money?

Additionally, I don't know what's good or bad on the market, and so I need your help with that as well. I'd like to get them the best unit possible whatever that may be (extender, access point, or router) so that it does an excellent job and can keep working for as many years to come as possibl...

Hi
I am having problems accessing the internet via a pay for service wifi connection (One Zone). I am located in an area with multiple encripted and unencripted networks. I can get to one free network, but cannot use my cellphone from there. I was able to log onto, sign up, and use the pay for service once. The next time after rebooting I could not. I called technical support for One Zone and was told to remove Internet Explorer from the list of applicaitons in my Mcafee firewall. This worked once, but then failed the next time I rebooted, and has not worked when I tried it again.

Next I tried the suggestion to use the commands:
For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog
Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

This worked once, and then not again.

I uninstalled the Mcafee firewall - but this did not help.

Finally, I updated the driver for the WIFI card, and for the ThinkVantage software used to access the network on the IBM Thinkpad T60.

Throughout this exercise I was able to acceess the free WIFI access point dLink.

When I try to access OneZone I am told that the signal strength is excellent and that I am connected. I am assigned an IP address. I can ping the IP address, but not the associated gateway address. When I look at the status I see IP addresses, indications that I am connected, a lot of packets going out, and no packets going in.

Hi all,
Pulling my hair out at the Inspiron 11 machine type 3137.  We've had it for about two years and it has never connected to our home router at a range greater than about ten feet from the access point.
The problem started when we first took it out of the box, then running Windows 8, later 8.1, now Windows 10.  All the OS upgrades have neither made the problem better nor worse.
Router is a Linksys E2500, in other words, name-brand stuff.  4 other machines in the house work all over the house and can connect to the router from anywhere in the house.
The driver is the latest version, and we have ruled out problems with firewall settings.  We can ping any network service, but no luck on HTTP, POP3/SMTP, etc. protocols.
For the past two years my wife has solved the problem by sitting within 10 feet from the access point, but that's not what we paid for and not what we expect from Dell.  Any ideas?  Anyone had a similar issue?
Thanks,
Kevin B

Ok, first off I would just like to say that this is my first thread post on this forum so sorry if I have done something wrong or am missing vital information. My problem is that I am trying to connect to my college campus's wireless internet. I will give more specific details in a bit. Basically, I was watching YouTube before going to class and shut down my PC before I left. I was connected to the internet then and it was working fine. When I got back is when I started getting problems. I booted up my computer as I usually do but instead of automatically connecting to my school's network, it didn't connect at all. When I go down to the wifi signal on the bottom right and choose the network and hit connect, it fails. This is what it reads: "Windows was unable to connect to (network name.)" I have tried going to Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network Connections and disabling and enabling everything and that did not work. I should also tell you that all the devices in this window have a red "X" next to them. I also tried all of Windows "troubleshooting problems." What I don't get is that my phone connects just fine, as well as everyone else on campus. I'm getting a bit frustrated because I am quite knowledgeable when it comes to computers and this sort of thing. I even custom built my own desktop at home. Here are the specs of the laptop I am having trouble with:

However in the Network Settings WLAN is set to "Off" and when I try to turn it on it always jumps right back to off. eg. I can't enable it.

HP is now help as they clearly state any laptop bought prior to specific date in 2013 will not get any driver updates from their side for windows 10. (Guys, never buy HP again please...). And updating through device manager only tells me it's the newest driver available.

I am running a CISCO Linksys E1000 as my primary router. I have a Netgear DI-524 that I would like to set up as a second access point on the far end of the house due to weak signal. My thinking is that I could run my entertainment center off the LAN ports and have "extended" range of my wireless network.

The routers are connected LAN to LAN and it seems to be working. I have read several posts about the need to run the second router with a static IP address and the DHCP needs to be disabled. I've also seen that I should not connect LAN to WAN which is why it is connected the way I have it. With the CISCO connected, I can't seem to access the DI router to make these changes; I just get a "connection was reset" error on my browser. Any suggestions?

I do not have the setup disk and had been using the router website to access it before I bought the CISCO.

Hey everybody

At my house, we currently have a wireless router setup, that 3 computers connect to for Internet usage.

We have a building out back that my mom uses as a place to make t-shirts and such, and she has a computer there that needs to connect up to the wireless network. The computer can't seem to work with wireless cards however.

What I wanted to do, was setup a wireless access point in the building, that would connect up to the wireless router that is in my room, and then connect an ethernet cord from the access point to the computer.

Is this possible to do, and easy to setup? I wasn't sure if the access point would see the router, and then connect up to it, and allow the computer to get Internet by ethernet cord into it.

Hi Guys,

I'm still Googling the net, but hoped that someone here might have a link to a "Fix" for my project.

A friend has purchased two Linksys WRT54G V8's. He has one installed at his house and it is working well as a Wireless Router. The other he has given to his neighbor, and run a LAN cable to the neighbor’s house. The neighbor wants to use the Wireless Router as an Access point. I'm pretty sure it can be done, but don't know the settings needed to use the WRT54G as an Access point.

The cable is presumed good as it was previously used to run a dedicated Access Point before the Access Point died.

Any links to the settings would be appreciated. (Settings for the Linksys WRT54G)

Hi everyone,

I'm using an access point via ethernet hosted on my laptop.
A programme required me to untick the sharing option in my ethernet connection's settings and now that I reactivated it, it doesn't work anymore. I basically just undid the previous change to the settings, allowing my virtual network to use the ethernet connection again, it won't let it though.

Can anyone help with this? Restarting Windows, recreating the hosted network, deactivating etc. did not help. I also don't know which IP address I have to assign to the virtual network in TCP/IP4, but that doesn't seem to be important, devices can connect to the laptop, just not to the internet.

Is there are way of completely resetting the hosted network?

I want to use two Belkin N1 wireless routers, one as the main gateway and the other as an Access Point to extend the network to cover all areas of a large house. Is it a simple case of making the AP a static IP that is outside the DHCP range of the gateway router? So if Gateway router is 192.168.2.1 and DHCP on that is 192.168.2.1 - 192.168.2.100, I just need to set the AP to 192.168.2.101? Do I also do this by connecting the AP to the gateway router via a Lan port on both routers?

The AP won't be hard wired on its WAN port at its intended location.

A:Solved: Wireless Access Point

There's an App for that. Well, really a procedure.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable.

I have 6 computers on a network at any given time and I just recently bought and setup my Dell Studio 1555 w/Vista Home Premium 32bit for my network via an access point. The problem is, I can't see any of the shared folders on the other computers on the network from the new laptop.

- The network name is the same
- All but the laptop are WinXP 32 w/ LLTD protocol
- Wireless Router has DHCP disabled w/personalized ip address
- All of the computers have correct firewall settings and shared content settings

Modem
|
Linksys Router - multiple computers
|
Wireless Linksys Router (acting as AP) - 2 wired computers + 1 wireless
I can see the computers in the Network Map via the LLTD protocol, but can not access individual folders or drives.

How do I access these shared files over my AP?

I need to replace my wireless access point with something a little faster. A friend of mine had a spare wireless router that he gave me for free. I don't really need another router as I have a custom gateway in place.

I was wondering if I set the router up and just plugged the rest of my network into one of the LAN ports if I could use it as a wireless access point? It should pass the wireless traffic across the LAN ports I think. Since I would have nothing plugged into the WAN side none of the firewall/routing/NAT functionality would available but that is basically what I want.

Am I missing some obvious reason why this would not work?

Hi Folks,

I have a simple situation to be corrected, but it is tricky to explain.

What I'm trying to do:

I have two WRT54G Wireless Routers w/Firmware V8.00. Wireless Router_1 is installed at House_1, connected to a Satellite Internet Service and to PC_1. PC_1 can access the Internet fine and other computers with wireless cards can pick up the Wireless signal and connect to the Internet as well.

Between House_1 and House_2 I have a Cat5 Cable.

At House_2 I have the second WRT54G Wireless Router installed. Wireless Router_2 is set up as an Access Point. (I think), and connected to PC_2.

What I'm trying to accomplish is to have Internet Access at both House_1 and House_2 as well as having Wireless available at both Houses as well.

I know this can be done as I've done it twice before with different Routers. The Houses are located on a Hill and get hit by Lightning several times per year. Every once in a while, we have to buy new equipment, run new Cat5 etc, and do it all again. Each time, I have to go back and read on exactly how I did it the last time. This time I can't get it to work.

I believe I have set up Router_2, the Access Point at House_2 properly. I have done the following:

- Set the IP Address to 192.162.1.2
- Disabled DCHP Server
- Changed from Gateway mode to Router
- Set Channel from 1 (default) to 6

I am able to see printers and print to printers from House_1 to Printers at House_2 as well as open files on PC_2 at House_2 from PC_1 a... Read more

I have a basic home network with two desktop PC's that are hard wired to a linksys wireless G router with 4 wired ports. Also have two notebooks that connect wirelessly to the network. I have a dsl modem that connects to the wireless router.

As the modem and router are located in my basement my wireless signal connectivity is less than perfect. I would like to be able to add a wireless access point on the main level of my house. I know enough to run a cat5 cable for the wireless access point (about 60 feet) and connect it to one of the available ports on the router.

What I need to know is what would be a good wireless access point to purchase. Also, as I would be installing the access point very near my Dish Network PVR I would also like to add the PVR to my network. Is there a wireless access point with a wired port or ports so I could just patch the PVR to the access point. This would save me running yet another cable and also leave me one open port on the router for future.

Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Which wireless access point to purchase

Actually, you can use any standard wireless router and configure it as a WAP. The advantage here is that a wireless router is usually cheaper than a WAP, and it will serve the function just as well.
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures t... Read more

I've run into a bit of a wall setting up a wifi connection. What I want to set up is this:

cable modem >--(cable)--> primary computer >--(wireless)--> other computers and devices

So I need the primary computer (which is running on Vista) to act as a wireless access point. Here is how far we have got with this:

1. Bought and successfully installed drivers for a USB wireless adapter.
2. Successfully set up an adhoc network, and detected it using a second computer, a Nintendo Wii, and a Nintendo DS.
3. Changed IP address range on the router to 192.168.1.x
4. Completely and dramatically failed to share the primary computer's internet connection with the other connected devices.

The USB adapter came with some software, which we have installed (it says it is compatible with Vista), but when we try to run it it appears on the running processes list but there's no window for it, no icon in the system tray, and we can't work out how on earth we're supposed to use it without either of these.

The USB adapter is a Safecom SWMULZ-5400, and from all the information I can find about it it sounds like it is possible to use it as either a wireless access point or a receiver (and others seem to have successfully set it up as a wireless access point, though I noticed that somebody running WinXP SP2 was having the same issue with the software as us).
The software that came with this USB adapter is called ZDWLan.

Wireless security means encryption. Best is WPA2 or WPA-PSK with a passphrase of at least 20 letters, numbers and special characters mixed.

WEP with hex key(s) will suffice for most people in most situations.

Hello all,

I have tried to access the configuration screen for "Netgear WG602 Access Point" but all my attempts were unsuccessful. What I did is connecting the access point to my PC through ethernet cable then configuring my LAN as follows:

IP Address: 192.168.0.226
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.227
Preferred DNS Server: 192.168.0.227

The default access at the bottom of the access point device states it is "192.168.0.227" . When I ping the default gateway, I receive timeout message. I also disabled my firewall but nothing worked.

What am I missing?. Please advise

We currently have a network set-up with a cable modem, wireless router, and several switches. We have one main wireless SSID that is encrypted for our family to use. However, we recently purchased a Netgear access point that we want to configure for a guest network. Is there a way we can make an unencrypted wireless signal but at the same time keep the information on the rest of our computers safe? In other words, is there a way to block access to everything on our network except for the internet just on that one access point?

If you need any specific model numbers or that sort of thing for any of our devices please let me know.

Hi Folks,

I'm a little stuck on a network performance issue and was wondering if anyone out there could assist, please?

I'm connected at home to the internet via a cable router (VirginMedia). To get fast speeds between a NAS box connected to the router and my desktop machine upstairs, I've run a Cat 5e cable between the rooms. I get near gigabit speeds between the NAS and the desktop machine with this setup.

The location of the router in the house isn't ideal for wifi, so I decided to connect another cable router (Belkin N1) in access point mode, using the cable I had previously connected between the VirginMedia router and the desktop. The wifi connections to the access point work great, but my desktop machine, now connected to the access point via an additional short cat 5e cable, sees a tenfold decrease in network speed when connecting to the NAS.

Is there something I'm missing here? I don't understand the reason for the tenfold decrease. Both routers have gigabit ethernet ports. Should just routing through the access point have such a detremental impact on network speed?

Thanks,

Pete

I was connecting to the main router via the WAN port on the secondary, so that was obviously causing the issues. You'd have thought the secondary router would have been able to cope with that given it was in access point mode, but apparently not!

Hello.I'm adding an old Linksys WRT54G to my home network as an access point to get a stronger signal at the end of the house. I've read about 6 other posts on how to do this so still probs.

When I change the second router ip address to 10.0.0.254 (the primary router is set up with a DHCP range of 10.0.0.2 to 10.0.0.252 and its IP address is 10.0.0.1) I can't log back into it! I've reset the Linksys and started over a couple of times. It's default IP is 192.168.1.1 and I changed the settings to the 10.0.0.254.

I have a Comcast router (SMCD3GNV) and have it wired to my second router - the WRT54G. All the example posts use the example home network of 192.168.0.1. I want to keep the primary router network - which is using 10.0.0.1. So it is set up with the Linksys IP of 10.0.0.254 and the default gateway of 10.0.0.1.

My questions are:

1. What are the specific, exact settings supposed to be on my screenshot attached?
2. What do I use to logon directly to the 2ndary router (AP) after all changes?

I have seen the tutorial at this link as well as others:
http://m.wikihow.com/Convert-Linksys-WRT54G-to-Be-an-Access-Point

Under Static IP, should Internet IP address be: 10.0.0.254?
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0?
Gateway: 10.0.0.1?
Static DNS: 0.0.0.0 for all of them?

Thank You!

The primary router and its wireless network work great.

Okay, I'm not sure if this should go in here, but the whole reason I'm trying to get this to work is for my daughter's Nintendo DS, lol, so I'm putting it here first.

First of all, I have a dial-up connection.

I bought this:

and installed it. During the installation, a little balloon popped up from the system tray and said that there was a problem with the new hardware and that the device may not work. However, the device's installation wizard never said anything about a problem, and in fact told me that it was installed successfully.

Now, it's installed but my daughter's game is not picking this up.

There are two modes for it. One is the "station mode," and in this one, the game searches for a bit, then says that "there is no compatible access point within reach"and gives this error code: 50099. In the AP mode, it finds the access point, and we can bring up the set up for the connection, it finds the device, but when we tell it to conduct the test to make sure we can connect to use these settings, we get an error code of 52000 and says to check the DHCP settings (on the computer, I'm guessing??? I did and it's on automatic startup and is running) and a balloon pop-up from the device icon in the system tray that says something about the client being disassociated and gives this MAC number: 00-17-AB-95-60-F6

You are connected to the access point, but the internet cannot be found.

That right there is my problem. I bought a new computer yesterday at Best Buy to hook up to a preexisting network in my house. I then bought a Wireless-G PCI Adapter from Linksys modle number WMP54G. On the host computer in my house it is a Linksys modle WRT54G.

After I installed the adaptor and connected to the wireless network working through the security codes, ie. WEP and MAC codes, I was on the internet. It worked fine besides the fact that I get a weak signal in my room. Since then I have downloaded Zone Alarm (basic) and turned off Window's Firewall.

It worked fine for a while. I had just rearranged my room and such to better fit a computer, and It worked for about 20mineuts after everything was set up. Then all the sudden it stopped worked and when I checked my router I got the message:
"You are connected to the access point, but the internet cannot be found."

Hi everyone,

I am on a hunting trip out in a rural area. We are staying with family. They have a GT701WG setup with Qwest DSL. We have several people staying here in travel trailers that would like to use the wireless connection but the modem/gateway is out of range.

Here are some of the limitations that we have:

1. The modem is located inside a workshop that is a metal building.
2. The trailers that need access are about 150 feet from the modem and are blocked from direct line of sight to the modem by a house.
3. The modem cannot be moved from it's current location. There are telephone wiring issues on the property and the current connection is the only one that will work with the modem.
4. We are in a rural area that is difficult to find decent networking hardware quickly.
Here's what I have to work with:

1. A Linksys WRT310N
2. A DLink DGS-2205
3. We hardwired a CAT5 cable from the modem through the house to the room closest to the trailers. I can use that connection with my laptop to connect to the internet so I know at least that much is working.
4. The one store that is local is a Staples. They should have basic networking hardware but nothing too fancy.

Any ideas!??

Thanks!

Hi. This is really odd. I'm working at a high school which has pretty large grounds. The network is configured via one central router and a lot of access points. Recently, they shut down my access point for a moment after connecting it again. The access point works fine (after finding my problem we've tested a lot of computers and they all connect to it and the internet). My laptop and my desktop - the only computers connected to access point when it was rebooted - do not connect to this access point however!

Instead, they "choose" to connect to an access point farther away, so that my signal strength is extremely low (and hence, my internet connection is very poor).

How do I get my computers to connect to the previous access point with the strong signal?

The laptop runs Windows 7 32-bit and the desktop runs Windows 7 64-bit.

If they are not about the same a cable is bad, a connection is bad (loose, oxidized) or the ethernet switch part of the Linksys is failing. Of course, try different ports on the Linksys.

2. Run the following command from the mysql\bin directory:
mysql -u root --password=
3. A mysql> prompt should be displayed.
4. To create a remote user account with root privileges, run the following commands:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'USERNAME'@'IP' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';

'USERNAME' is the username to be created.
'IP' is the public IP address of the remote connection.
'PASSWORD' is the password to be assigned for this username.
(IP can be replaced with % to allow this user to logon from any host or IP)

mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
mysql> exit;

So it is. But I couldn't connect to that MySQL from another computer, both are Windows XP.

If you have any experience, I'd like to receive your help.

Thanks in advance.

I live in an association that provides WiFi (802.11b/g/n). It works fine upstairs, but my PS3 is in the basement, and doesn't get a good enough connection to stream netflix.

So I see two options, and I'm wondering which is better. It seems both would cost under $80.

Option 1:
Get a Wireless Range Extender that supports 802.11b/g/n, and put in upstairs.

Option 2:
Get a Wireless Access point and plug it into a wireless router (which I already have one lying around).

Which option is the best, and would give the best connection speed to my PS3 in the basement?

OS: Vista

I have a wired network using a modem, router and a switch.
I wanted to add a wireless access point to the network.
I plugged the WAP into the switch.
When I ran the setup cd, I got the following message.
The setup utility was unable to locate a wireless-g access point on the network.
All the connections are plugged in as the WAP shows all lights on.
I also tried connecting to the WAP's IP address through explorer but was unsuccessful.

Am I suppose to setup any configurations on the router to allow the WAP to work.
The router is not setup with a static ip address.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Solved: Unable to locate wireless-g access point in the network

The exact make/model of the WAP, router, and modem would be useful here.

You may have to connect the WAP directly to a computer for initial configuration, again without knowing specifically what unit you have, it's hard to say.

I have used for years a Link Sys wireless access point along with a Link Sys 4 port switch so my wife could access internet from upstairs. I have been given a Link non-wireless Broadband Router. Will they work together? I have been printing and reading the manuals, and even though I haven't looked yet, I think the Wireless access point and the non wireless router are both on the same IP address. Is there a way around this, or is it even a problem?
 

A:Solved: Will Wireless Access Point and Broadband Router Work Together?

Well yes if they have the same IP address that would be a problem as you cannot have two devices sharing the same IP address. But it is a simple matter to move one or other device to an alternative IP address (still in the same subnet).

As your existing router is likely also the DHCP-server then I'd change the IP address of the WAP; manually set it to some other IP address in the same subnet, preferably outside the issuing range of the router. e.g if the router had IP address 192.168.0.1, and issued IP address range 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.100, you could safely make the WAP 192.168.0.250.

Bought a box on a sale and it had a Linkssys Wirelss Access Point Router in it. My question is can I use this just as I would a linksys wireless G router to setup a home network. If so, what is the difference between a router and a access point router? This is a Linksys wireless access point router 2.4 GHz Data Rate 11 Mbps, so I guess my whole question is this.

Can I use this just as I would a wireless G Linksys router which I am used to setting up. and if so can I just use the same cd that comes with the wireless G router to set this one up, on the cd it gives you a chice of what router you using. this one hasn't got the cd with it. Maybe someone could explain the difference or point me to a site that will tell me in layman terms.

says it is a Instant wireless series, model NO, befw11s4 VER.2
Supports Universal plug and play , capable of up to 128-bit WEP encryption

Hi Guys

I cam accross this problem in a client's house a few days ago. It read "You are connected to the access point, but internet can not be found" After i re-installed the OS for her computer. I tried everything from winsock fix, Re-installing OS twice, Re-installing IE, Changing settings around a zillion times. I had repaired and ran several diagnostics and everything checked out . Her other two computers had been set up by her ISP and those worked. So after a few look her and there. I checked teh router settings and the settings were all ok, but it turned out that the router is in deed defective. I did not have to replace the router because teh router works but the DNS portion was the problem. IP address and DNS were set up for automatic. I changed DNS from auto to manual and punched in 4221 and 4222 at the buttom. (note that my router is netgear). I disconnected and re-connected and boom, i am now receiviong packets LOL. This took me 2 days to figure out for being soemthing so simple. I wanted to share because alot of people have been having this problem and there are severall fixes to it. Some people had to chnage it all to automatic and it fixed itself but mine was somewhat the oposite ..

Here is the situation:
I was asked by a coworker to setup a printer in his office that he could access with several laptops wirelessly. The printer does not have built-in wifi, but all of the laptops already have network adapter cards (we bought a netgear WGR614 wireless router to use as an access point {?} to accomplish this). Our office internet is primarily wireless, but there is one internet port in the wall in his office if needed. I am wanting to hook the printer up to the existing wireless network so that he can be on the internet and print at the same time. How can I accomplish this easily?

As for the existing network, here is how it is setup - It appears as though it is Verizon DSL. Connected to the wall is the modem, which is a regular small looking plastic modem that I've seen come with cheap residential plans. Connected to that appears to be some type of relay, or hub.

Ok, so I just installed one of these Cisco Aironet 1100 access points in a large office. The datasheet from Cisco says that I should be able to have a full 54Mbps signal at 90 ft. in an "Open Office Environment", and should be able to get an 11Mbps signal at 220 ft.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps4570/products_data_sheet09186a00800f9ea7.html

I tested the range of the access point by walking through the office with my laptop, putting several rooms/walls between us. I started to lose my signal around 30 feet away, straight line distance, and completely lost it at 50 ft. I have a schematic of the office for measuring this.

Now, I realize that walls and framing interfere with the signal, and 30 feet through walls, in my mind is a pretty good distance for this point to function.. but my questions are:

1) What is Cisco's definition of an "Open Office Environment"?
2) Should I be getting better performance out of this device than I am receiving?
3) What does everyone think about signal strength/distance in a "real office environment" through multiple rooms/walls?

Hi Ruben_Palacios , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
First to make sure that Airplane mode (page 6) is not enabled, there is a hotkey on top of the keyboard with an icon of a plane.  Check if that would enable your wifi . 
 
Else you can try to set the default of the BIOS ,
Access the BIOS by turning off the laptop and then use the Novo button (item2 page 9) on the left side next to power to turn it on. Novo menu would appear to offer BIOS set up , F9 to load defaults F10 to save and exit .
 
Load up windows and check if there is a wifi icon at the base of the screen.
Check also on device manager if there is any yellow mark or black down arrow  to indicate any need to reinstall drivers from the support website.

Provided you have a WiFi adapter installed in your notebook, you will need to turn on WiFi in your notebook then sign on to an available wireless network.  I suggest downloading your user manual and reading up on this subject for more information. If you do not see any wireless networks, you may need to purchase a Wireless Router from your internet service provider.  If you do not have a WiFi card in your computer you will need to contact Lenovo directly to purchase a compatible card for your specific notebook.
 
Also - make sure you have a good anti virus software suite installed before you go online.
 
Good luck.

Hello,

I thought I understood WiFi. My computers have always had built in WiFi capabilities, so all I had to do was throw a WiFi router into the mix and I was good to go.

I assumed that if a computer did not have WiFi capabilities, that one would have to purchase an access point. I've been researching access points as I am going to be adding an older, non-radio capable box to my network. Upon further reading, I've discovered that an access point is not necessarily what I thought it was - and not what I need? I'm reading that the access point is a central hub for all the computers?

Am I correct?

So what I need is to buy a wifi net card? What are these things called?

Thanks.

Is there an easy way to disable my wireless connection so that (a) it does not enable itself after a reboot, and (b) I don't need to implement the complete process to re-enable the wireless?

Under normal circumstances, the re-enable after a reboot is fine. I can disconnect WiFi from the system tray, and it reconnects after reboot.

But sometimes, I might want wireless to remain disabled after reboot. For example, if I'm doing a database restore, and the database starts synching after a reboot (such as Evernote), it could cause problems :-)
