I have a guest house in the back. I access the net there through my Dell laptop using WiFi. I have a television there that needs to have its operating system upgraded through the internet. All it has is a LAN connector. How do I get my Laptop to convert the WiFi to LAN so all I need to do is connect a LAN cable between my laptop and the TV? Or do I need to buy something cheap to convert WiFi to LAN?
I have a cable internet.There is no other hardware that connects to the Cable.There is no modem or router.Just the RJ45 cable that I plug in to my laptop and go online.Now,I want to convert this to wifi.what router/modem will I require and possibly with the model number and something thats low in price.I will use only one laptop and no intention of multiple user.I dont intend to use printers either.I am using windows 7.The network adapters that are installed in my laptop are: Intel Centrino wireless N 1030.Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter and Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter #2,RealtekPCIe FE Family Controller?
I have a reliance netconnect + broadband connection (usb device) which I use to connect my laptop. Is there any device/ software which will convert this to WIFI so that I can use the same connection for my other WIFI enabled devices?
I have an equipment which has LAN port for wired connectivity to the computer. I can connect 10 such equipment thru LAN to the computer & display the data of all the equipments on computer screen. This LAN network I wanna convert to Wi-fi/wireless.
I have a wireless router that rests across the house next to the modem. The signal is too weak to reach to the other side of the house. Is there a way to boost the signal so I can get wifi from across the house or any other way to get an internet connection without several fifty foot wires going across the house?
I want to connect myself on my friend router by wifi but i cannot see the network what should i do ,what usb receiver anntena is the best or what i nedd to buy and is working 100 % maybe is 400 meter is the distance but sure is not 1 mile
i get a bunch of lag when i play counterstrike, etc. In game, my ping is always tripling other players'. I know it isnt my computer because it is basically amazing. Im pretty sure it is my wifi because i'm in the top floor of my house and my router is in the basement. I'm using a usb wireless card. What can i do to get a better signal.
My parents ditched their Comcast cable last year. Their house association has provided 'Wifi' for everyone in the neighborhood as part of the association fee. However, signal is very weak, even though they are one of the closest to the Wifi Antennas. They have a laptop, two desktops, and one Ipad. Their laptop seems fine. Both of the desktop, however, are very slow. It's slower than 56k. It's almost unbearable. They still have all their modems/router from Comcast. I am wondering a way to get the Wifi signal, and use the Comcast Router to create a Wifi in their house again so they can print wireless and use netflix and things like that. I don't know the exact definition for it. I'm just wondering if it can be done.
I just got a job at a School district that has an extremly old and basic network setup (No Firewall, only 2 accounts on the server Student and Teacher). They have two small buildings that have 1 wireless router on each floor about in the middle of the hallway. I am having a strange issue I haven't seen before with a windows 7 laptop that a few of the teachers in the district are having. They can see the wireless router on the network but everytime they try and connect it says "Windows Cannot Connect or is Denied Access". All the other laptops in the building connect fine.Heres what I have done so far.
-Power cycled the router, nothing. -ipconfig /release, and renew, nothing. -Getting closer to the router and connecting, nothing. (Also tried with a differant laptop in the room and it could connect no problem which confused me more) -Updating the network card.(says it has the latest updates) -Re-entering the network key, nothing
What I haven't tried is setting up manually a static IP. But do I need to do that? And if so how do I know which IP to give it is there a way I can generate a list of all the IP's on the network?
went to set up ps3 and see that the wifi signal is particularly bad (30%) for online.There is no possible way of getting the router near the ps3.I am think that a pair of tp-link powerlines may play a role here, but may be mistaken. What are peoples experiences. would something like that increase ps3 signal? would 200mbps or 500mbps be better (they do diffferent models). I understand that it would make the connection for the ps3 wired, but am I right in thinking the laptop would just operate over wifi as it does already?
I have a laptop with a Bigfoot 1103 n wifi card and up til now it has been working perfect for our location.cWe had to move our office down a few doors and now we get NO reception at all. My laptop will pick up the network momentarily then loose the signal. My question is : how to boost reception?I have no access to the modem or router either. Do they make a decent booster that I can plug in my usb that will work with my current wifi card?
I have computers scattered across our home, and in many areas it is not feasible to run ethernet cable. At one location (less than 30 feet away) but through multiple walls, I can barely connect to any POS (I have two). I added a stand alone antenna extension with long antennas on both the router and the WiFi card on the PC, however, this made zero improvement.What should I be looking to purchase to increase the signal strength? I've already tried different routers.
I recently built my gaming PC and everything works great. Except for when i try to use my wifi. Usually my wifi is really fast, but recently its been really slow or not even detecting my network. I tried disconnecting my modem and router but it still had no effect on the performance of my WiFi.
I need to get internet out to my shop computers.The shop is about 1/2 mile away form my house and there is a clear line of sight. I plan on using either a biquad or yagi antenna of some sort.
Can I use something like this?
http:[url]....(I think this would eliminate the need for a router? Also since this is all USB and comes with software designed around it, it should be fairly easy to setup.)Or Would I be better off getting a wrt54g flashed with dd-wrt to act as a repeater?
Laptop got a virus and I used system restore. When the computer came back up, it would not connect to the internet.It is a wireless signal and the computer recognizes the signal is there, but it won't connect. The connection box says "Connections are available". It also says "Not connected" and "Limited access"
I've expanded wireless internet using WDS: routers, but only with 1 boost.Is there a limit on how many times I can use WDS routers to boost a signal AND get ethernet connections out of the receiving side?
I am in a location where I can pick up great wifi signal, but when I connect to this unsecured signal, my page won't load. I ran a diagnostics & Association failed. I would also like to mention that I am also configured to use a broadband usb through a cell phone carrier, but if I can get the wifi free, I certainly don't want to pay for the broadband.By the way, it's an XP operating system.
I've been having a problem with my wifi connection.I give my neighbor $15 a month to use his connection, so I have no control over the router.I'll be surfing along or just checking mail or whatever and out of the blue my connection stops. A little yellow triangle "warning" sign covers the signal strength meter in the lower right corner. If I click on the signal meter, up pops the list of wireless connections available to me and says that I'm connected, (but I'm not). So I go to the network and sharing center and sometimes this alone will restart the signal but usually I have to run the troubleshooter and the signal will come back with no explanation of what the problem is.While in the network and sharing center, my connection to the router looks clear and connected but shows a red X over the connection between the router and Internet.
i'm connecting to the internet using a desktop pc and a D-Link DSL-2560U (modem + wireless router). The wifi signal is very low on the other side of the house. I also have another wireless router - a Trendnet TEW-431BRP, and i want know if i can put it in the middle of the two areas of the house in order to boost the wifi signal in that area. How can i do it?
I received three things for Christmas: 1. Linksys WiFi E1200, 2. Pandigital Planet tablet, 3. Roku.My family room is on the same level as my Wifi router but about 70 feet apart, but I cannot get a wifi signal in the family room on the Pandigital tablet, however, the Roku seems to be receiving the wifi signal because the Roku works.Is my tablet not working correctly? Can and should my son increase the signal strength of the Linksys
Our Motel has a new CenturyLink DSL Wifi Modem at the office desk, and I'm trying to get wifi to all customers via (3) Linksys WRT110 wfi routers that are in the attic. How do you configure the routers so all put a wifi signal out with the same network name ? I keep getting limited connections & etc...
I bought TP-link wireless repeaters which i have failed trying to setup to an eircom zyxel dsl modem (ISP provided modem)i set it up as a universal repeater and had it auto latch on to the eircom modem but it just doesnt seem to boost the signal.i have turned all encryption and this doesnt work either. I have setup this situation using a netgear dsl modem and a netgear wireless router which if i remember i made a mac bridge, and it works great..am i wasting my time trying to get a TP-link talking to a cheap isp modem? i was reading an article somebody wrote that was doing the same thing yet the modem wasnt the same as mine, they said they got it working using WDS...and that the tp-link doesnt know about WDS and you need to use telnet to change settings on the tp-link looked a real hassle anyway.
I have a wireless router on the ground floor of my home which is wired to my PC on the 3rd floor. The wifi signal is of poor quality on the 3rd floor. I cannot move the router to a different floor since all of my connections are wired through the home into my networking room (on the ground floor where my router is). I wish to add a media receiver to a different room on the 3rd floor that is not wired already for networking. Streaming video files wirelessly to the media receiver from my router will not work because as stated previously the signal quality is poor on the 3rd floor. My mobo on my computer has ASUS wifi GO. Can I enable the wifi go on the mobo of my PC (located on 3rd floor) to connect to the media receiver (also on the 3rd floor) for streaming? The media receiver will also have an internet browser so will I be able to connect to the internet as well if it is networked to my PC and my PC is connected to my router on the ground floor?
I basically want to keep my PC connected to my main router for high DL speeds and also have my PC networked wirelessly to my media receiver using the on board wifi go. If possible I'd also like to be able to access the internet on the media receiver via the PC.
I bought a DIR-655 (F/W v. 2.00NA) about 6 months ago. It worked well until a couple of weeks ago. Then it started to stop broadcasting WIFI signal without apparent reason. When it did so, I could still connect to it and internet with wired connection, but the WIFI scan does not show my SSID. If I reboot it (either through the admin interface, or just disconnect and reconnect the power), I would be able to reconnect to WIFI, but then WIFI will stop working again in about 8-10 hours. I am rebooting this thing 2-3 times a days and it is very frustrating. Curiously, I borrowed a N300 router to try out
I've bought X3000 modem recently & the only issue is pops up for me is wifi signal is too low. I've got 2 routers with me. My old linksys router WAG200G has got no issues with wifi signal. I kept both routers at the same place & compared with same standard channel yet what astonishing me that WAG200G has got more stability than X3000 regardless inspite changing to wireless -N. Is there a way to solve it. Btw, I tried all the standard channels yet it doesn't make any difference.
Have two desk top pc's in metal building office they are operating by way of DSL modem my provider is Century Link. I purchased a WRT 54Gl linksys wireless router hoping I would be able to get a WIFI signal to my house. I have no live phone lines in my home just the one in my metal building , how can I get a signal through the metal building to my home in order to use wifi on my Ipod and Iphone . Keep in mind I am 200 ft from my home and have a wooden shop and another metal building to go through to get to my home.
Sending WiFi signal about 1/4 mile from my home to where my daughter lives so she can use her Samsung Galaxy2 Tablet on WiFi.There are homes, condos and trees in between us, so it is not a clear path.So far this is what I have done.I am using a modem and a Netgear WNR834B Wireless N Router.I connected a Hawkins Laptop Extender (HWREN Wireless 150N Mini Extender * single antenna outlet) into the router and connected a WiFi cable from the Hawkins to my tower outside above my roof and have attached a 10 dbi gain Trendnet antenna (omnidirectional) to the cable.But still the WiFi signal doesn't seem to be very strong at all when I test with my phone.And obviously, my daughters tablet does not see my router when she has her tablet search for WiFi.I also tried a 14dbi WIfi ASUS directional antenna and basically came up with the same outcome... she could not see the WiFi signal..My daughter lives in a condo and is not capable or allowed to install any outside antenna system whatsoever.
