I have the awus 1k awus036h wifi usb adaptor with the crappy stock 2db antenna. I was told by some randomer on a forum that getting a larger antenna doesn't increase the power output of the adaptor. IIRC this is directly against what I've read in the past but I forgot where so am unable to say one way or the other. I remember reading that the larger the antenna the more microwaves it radiates.Plus would it make it a health concern? Currently I have my adaptor in the other room maybe 2-3 metres from me separated by a plaster wall. enna I can if it is deemed safe or as much so as before pretty much since I have been using it for a while w/o probs. I was thinking of getting something in the range of 10db-14 db- maybe even going for an outdoor antenna but keeping it inside so long as it is affordable which they seem to be.
Is there a way to boost a wifi signal to a non detachable antenna pci wireless card?so i can get better signal of free access point,i don't want to go and buy another card with a detachable antenna,which i know i can do alot more to boost with these type of cards.
I have a network set up currently with a cable modem that goes into a router, the router then goes to a 16 port switch and the switch goes to computers, printers, and my server. I am trying to figure out how to make the modem plug into the switch instead of the router. I'm guessing my problem lies with the default gateway since that is the router. Any suggestions on this? Or how is the best way to set this up? I have 2 NICs on my server and the server has windows 2008 r2.
I wasn't smart enough to get a computer with wireless built in, so now I need to add a wireless card. I purchased one from walmart (yeah I know gotta get away from Wally world) url...Then I discover that the only Expansion Slots are;
I have a Belkin usb adapter to pick up my wireless internet. problem is when i choose my network to connect to it constantly says "acquring network address". But as soon as i plug in an ethernet cable from the router the wireless starts working and i just unplug the ethernet cble. So why does my wireelss card depend on my ethernet conenction?
I got a different tower to use ,and added my wireless card and external antenna to it , but need setting up the new PC tower to use the wireless card and antenna. How to set up the available connections so that I can use this in my garage too.
i have an old hp ipaq pocket pc (really old) but a long time ago i used to have it set up wirelesly to the internet via a D-link DCF-650 W cf card. But i can't get it to find and wireless connects. The card lights aren't flashing there just on they used to flash when I would send or receive data. I can hook to internet through my computer but i want it wireless. I found some drivers for card that i installed through win7 on computer, but how do i make it install to my pocket pc where the card is at?
I'm going to be moving into a place in the next couple months where I'll have to go wireless on my desktop (until now I've just done Ethernet so I don't even have a wifi card on my desktop). The router/modem aren't anywhere near my bedroom so my gear will be going wireless from now on All my devices are built-in wifi ready but not my desktop.
I would like recommendations as to a rock-solid, reliable, fast and well performing card as I can to make up for no hardwired connection. Especially with BF3 coming out I'm not all that thrilled with being forced into this situation but you gotta do what you gotta do. Anyhow, I'll be bringing my router (Netgear WNDR3700) so I'll have the range and speed from there about as good as I can get, so I'd like a card of equal merit.
One side note...probably not really feasible considering I want speed and performance as a priority, but I would love a card (if possible) without bullshit antennas sticking out of the case, or with external antennas you have to set up on your desk. I will go that route if I have to but man that is an aesthetic nightmare, IMO. The ones that stick out of the back of the case are the worst looking for me just as a caveat.
I'm planning to replace my flaky minipcie wifi and I need advice about the antenna.My laptop has two sets of antenna, one for 3G WWAN and the other is for normal wifiAccording to the labels, both is "Main" and "Aux". The card that I'm planning to get is an Intel 5300 which has 3 antennas.Since the normal wifi only has two antennas, can I use the 3G WWAN as a third antenna? If yes, should I plug in the "Main" or the "Aux"? If no, Should I buy those additonal antennas in Ebay for the 3rd one?
I have 1 house that is about 1/4 or 1/2 a mile away from the other house.I would like to setup an antenna that sends a wifi signal from one house to the house that does not have internet.I have a picture link that i drew up at the top. I'm not the best at drawing stuff so bare with me.Im going to type a path of the internet out to show you what I would like to get setup.[CODE]
Have just acquired new used HP desktop running Windows Vista. System has a Broadcom NeXtreme Gigabit Ethernet card installed, which gets me to the internet OK when using a LAN cable from wireless router. But I can't make wireless connection. Vista tells me that I need a wireless network adapter.Am I missing something? Is it possible to change some settings to get the Broadcom card to go wireless? If not, what sort of adapter is needed, and is such adapter external or will it have to be installed in the system box?
Should i get a wireless adapter Or a wireless repeater Which would be better for a better connection?My router is down stairs and my xbox is upstairs.I could get the wireless adapter upstairs then do an ethernet cable straight to my xbox.
I have an older PC with windows 98 running. I used to have it connected to a modem and a router to get internet access.I recently got a new modem as the old one died and have now Wi-Fi in my home. My newer PC takes advantage of the Wi-Fi but my old PC does not.The new modem does not have a connection for the blue cable (Marked USB in back of modem) that was connecting the old PC to the internet.After reading online I think I need a USB wireless adapter but I am not sure on what I need exactly as my online searches return too much stuff (I went on Ebay).
I would like to make a network for my house where my laptop connects to my home wifi and other computers can connect to my laptop and get internet, almost like ad-hoc but i would like it to work with infrastructural devices also i do have some spare routers available.
My question is how can i turn this adapter that i get internet from for my desktop INTO wifi so i can use my tablet?right now the desktop is the only computer with internet since it has an adapter.what do i need to make a WIFI signal from the computer? is there a usb stick or router i can buy?
I have a new technicolor TG582n modem and the wifi signal doesn't reach to all the house. It's a big house, lots of concrete walls. I also have a Linksys WRT54G router and I'm wondering if it's possible to put the Linksys in the other area of the house and capture the signal from the Tompson. Then connect to that signal with my laptop. Maybe this will work to give me wifi in all areas.
Canon T3i hooked up to a laptop running ExtraWebcam and Yawcam.Yawcam running an HTML and Stream output to the network/web.I would like people to be able to access that video from the [the internet + network or internet or network] (those are the options/possibilities and the order in which I'd prefer).I am able to get people to access it via the network, but not the net. I'm using my Samsung Galaxy SIII on Sprint to tether (obviously not tethering if I'm only going to the network). Unfortunately, not only can I not access the stream via the internet, I can't even ping the phone.I'm pretty sure I need to open up/forward some ports, but I understand that that's not possible seeing as it's Sprint's network and not mine.
I will also have access to a local wifi network if there's a way to 'piggyback' off of that for web access to the stream even if I don't have access to the router control panel. I'm not sure if I'll have a hard wire connection to a router or not. I can, however, change the ports that the stream is set to.(also, I can bring a separate wireless router to connect to my tethered computer to open up the internet enabled stream to the network?)Given a laptop with a wifi card, a phone that can tether, a wifi network, and, if necessary, an extra wireless router, how can I stream from Yawcam and make it available to the internet if I DON'T have access to the wifi network's port forwarding? Note that I CAN edit the ports in Yawcam.
make dlink dsl router 2640T to be working as repeater which will be able to receive wifi signals. I've seen one guy using the same dlink dsl-2640T as wifi signal repeater where he was successfully able to receive wifi signals[CODE]
