My DSL modem/wireless router wont broadcast the wifi signal i need to know if it is just defective or a setting that can be turned off, It was working just fine and just recently stopped broadcasting, it works just fine for a direct connection. (It is a regular windstream wireless modem/router.
im using microsoft network monitor to monitor all traffic in and out (public) and mirrored ports for local traffic, except wireless traffic as its connecting to the router. I want to use a wifi NIC on the server to broadcast, so wireless clients can connect via the server and obtain DNS and DHCP etc from there, therefor, monitoring all traffic.
My neighbour and i will share internet costs, we have visibility and about 200m distance. cantenna should be fine to connect us. i can connect to his WIFI with my laptop when close his house. the setup i would like,m but i'm not clear about:
a) i need an access point device to connect the cantenna to it first, then i would like to broadcast that signal via Ethernet to WIFI-N router to connect the 3 computers in my location.
b) what exact AP device should i purchase ? i already have Linksys E3200 wifi router but, so i'm not sure about the AP device or if that's what i really need to what i'm imagining.
I have a problem connecting wifi router(airlive wt-2000r) to my ADSL modem(webstar epc2203ed2.0) using utp patch cable. When my PC is connected straight to the ADSL modem everything works like charm. But when I connect modem with wan port on the router and router with my PC I get no internet access. The network shows as unidentified network and win7 troubleshooter says: Default gateway not available. Connecting them two devices seems pretty simple and I dont think I am doing anything wrong so what could be the problem?
Is it "possible to create a WiFi" or make my desktop using hardware connection, a hotspot? (Without buying a wireless router/modem/card) I mean, is there a tweak or program I can download to configure my desktop running on Windows 7 to create wi-fi? The reason why I'm interested in this it's because, for Bluetooth, it's possible. Just wondering if they have the same nature with WiFi (In terms of configuration and tweaks)^,
I bought myself a new Edimax Modem/router that generates a WiFi network. I installed it successfully but not all of my house is covered well by the network, I even have some 'blank spots', where there's no WiFi at all. What can I do to improve the coverage? I have no problem to buy additional equipment, as long as my entire house would be fully WiFi-covered.
I have been using broadband in my laptop using asus wireless router/modem DSL-N10E for last 2 months but with Ethernet cable plugged in. I have never used its wifi function. I tried today but was unable to connect after entering security passwordWhen look for troubleshoot it says "There might be problem with the drivers for the wireless network connection adapters"
I've got a Livebox router/modem that provides an ethernet connection for our desktop and wifi connections for our smartphones (all-in-one kind of thing) in a SOHO environment. what i'd like to do is access one from the other, that is move files between a smartphone and the desktop without additional wiring or hardware.
I am having netgear JNR 1010 wifi router and I use Cablenet. the wire which carries internet is directly connected to my Desktop pc's LAN port without modem.Is there any way to install this router without conecting to modem?
My mom wants to buy my dad a Kindle Fire for Christmas. Currently they have a desktop computer with a modem plugged into it and use Verizon dsl for their internet. The Kindle needs wi-fi and I don't want to disrupt the way their computer is set up now.Do I simply plug the router into the modem to get the wi-fi signal?
I am trying to get my parents Kindle Fire to work. They recently purchased a Motorola Modem/Router which is hooked into the desktop and works fine. I want to get their new kindle to work and can not seem to figure it out. Their operating system is Vista which I can upgrade to Windows 7 if that would make it easier. When I click on setup the WiFi part of the installation wizard cd that came with the Motorola it says there is not a network adapter. I know what that is however I do not know why I would need it when the desktop is hooked directly into modem/router and I just need the WiFi for Kindle.
I have an ARRIS Docsys3 modem from Comcast which has a built in WiFi router. I also have a DIR-655. The Modem is in my office and I have a 100' Ethernet cable running through my attic to my front room where the dir-655 is located.
I use the DIR for WiFi as well I have it connected to my TV and Xbox.I use the ARRIS Modem for WiFi as well I have it connected to another Xbox and a Desktop computer.I want to have everything on 1 network, Dir-655 uses IP address 192.168.0.1-100 and the ARRIS uses ranges 10.0.0.1-100. I want to be able to connect to the dir-655 and have the IP for that connection join up with the 10.0.0... network so that I will be able to transfer files freely throughout the network.
I want everything on one network. Right now when I connect a laptop to the DIR-655, I can not access the printer that is connected to the Desktop on the ARRIS modem. I have to connect to the ARRIS modems WiFi to then use the printer on the desktop.Likewise, I want to use the media extender on the Xbox connected to the DIR-655 with the Desktop connected the the ARRIS modem, but I can not because of the to different networks.
I have broadband connection on a wired DSL Modem. Now I want to create a wireless networking environment at my home so to work with my laptop and WLAN enabled phone. I do not like to buy a new Wireless router.
Is is possible to deploy my existing modem/router with some extra equipments to build a wifi hotspot?
have received an Cisco Model DPC3925 modem/router from UPC (provider in the Netherlands) and they allow me to have 120Mbit connection, but with my own WIFI Adapter I only received between the 40Mbit/60Mbit speed. My question is the following; Wich WIFI adapter is the best adapter for my Cisco Model DPC3925 modem/router?The distance between the modem/router and my pc is not that much. And when I use an cable the connection is between the 90Mbit/110Mbit. The WIFI adapter that I now use is the: TP-Link TL-WN881ND. I was thinking to buy a Linksys AE1200, but I dont know if that adapter is much better then I already have.
how to properly configure 2 different hardware devices to extend the current wifi signal of my home network.I'm using a Motorola SBG6580 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem as my primary access point (AP) and a Netgear N300 DGN2200v1 ADSL2+ modem router which will function "behind" the SBG6580 in repeater mode. I previously had DSL for my internet connectivity but recently switched to broadband cable for faster speeds.Due to the layout of my home, I cannot physically connect the Netgear router to the Motorola modem via ethernet cable and need both devices to communicate wirelessly. I have already done extensive reading on this subject and best practices suggest that, whenever possible, both units should be the same brand/manufacturer. The Netgear appliance does have the capability of being configured as a repeater so if I don't have to buy a "network extender" that would be my preference.I understand that both units must be configured to have the same SSID, subnet, wireless channel and security encryption. In repeater mode the Netgear router can't be configured to use WPA2-PSK so I need to use WEP instead.
I'm trying to get a wireless N-router and a N-adapter for a room outside the range of a G router. But their are two laptops at the house. They both use g adapters. Can the N router broadcast both N and G signal at the same time? So all adapters in the house can connect to the router. Does broadcasting both signals degree the range of the N broadcast making the an additional N adapter useless?
My router has been having major problems lately [Well, for a while now]. Before, it would make all my machines [1 PC, 2 Laptops] disconnect from the internet briefly and reconnect. This doesn't impact browsing, video watching, etc. It wouldn't even say I was disconnected. However, I know it was disconnecting because programs like AIM, MSN, and multiple video games would say I lost connection. For example, MSN would disconnect and take me out of any conversations and reconnect a second later. Friends tell me that I keep going offline and then online.
I read somewhere I should change my channel, so I did and still got the same problem. Furthermore, my router/pc are literally right next to each other. Then I read elsewhere I should do a factory reset on my router by holding the reset button for a while. So I did and it reset. It started broadcasting as an unsecured network, so I was going to secure it.
1. Log in via http://192.168.0.1 (default "username: Admin and no pass")
2. Go to setup tab ----> internet ----> internet connection wizard2.1 CHANGE PASSWORD ! click next 2.2 chose time zone (you know where you are) 2.3 Configure your Internet Connection DHCP Connection (Dynamic IP Address)Choose this if your Internet connection automatically provides you with an IP Address. Most Cable Modems use this type of connection. 2.4. press "clone your computer's MAC address" ; hostname: 'your computer name in ubuntu' ( mine is "grobar" yours is ..... )
3. Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ----> Wireless Network Setup Wizard (after this we're gonna do manual settings)
3.1 give your network a name= SSID (e.g. 'grobar') 3.2.Automatically assign a network key (Recommended) and chose WAP or WAP2 3.3 Write down the network key!!! Or do printscr and save this page.
4. Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ---->Manual Wireless Network Setup 4.1 Wireless Network SettingsEnable Wireless : ALWAYS Wireless Network Name : (Also called the SSID) the name you gave in 3.1 802.11 Mode : chose "mixed 802.11n,g and b" Enable Auto Channel Scan : YES Wireless Channel : AUTO Transmission Rate : BEST (Mbit/s) Channel Width : AUTO 20/40 MHz Visibility Status : !!!Invisible!!! (so that no outsiders know your SSID except you) So after I finish the Internet Connection Wizard [Setting up Password etc], the http://192.168.0.1/ page asks me to click "Connect" so it can reboot the router with the settings. When I do so, the router turns off with the power icon being orange. After about 15 seconds or so, the broadcasting icon, power icon, and PC1 icon all turn green. However, there is a globe icon on it as well and that is ORANGE.
Regardless of power cycling, redoing the process, etc. it stays orange. None of my machines can connect to it. The only way I can connect again to the router is if I do a reset again (By holding the reset button). But then, I am unsecured and live in an apartment. I would like to add that the above process is the one I did previously and it worked fine. But then I had to reset the router and a similar problem occurred but I managed to fix it somehow and the first problem I talked about started happening (Reconnecting and disconnecting). Furthermore, when I go to "Connect to a Network" one of the old SSIDs I created for the router is still there regardless of the router status (Offline, Not connected, etc). I am typing this by connecting my PC directly to my modem. Router Information: D-Link DIR-615 300N
They currently have three Ambicon WL300N-ARs in their network. They are set up as AP and everything has been running fine till we tried to put a security DVR/camera behind each router. The first one worked without any issues but once we connected the second DVR to the network became unusable, very slow. Someone told the IT guy that it was probably a broadcast storm. I don't know anything about the ambicon routers, but if the wireless is setup as a AP would it forward broadcast? I was under the impression that routers did not forward broadcast. or by setting it up as a AP it no longer performs as a router? The three Ambicons are connected to a unmanaged fiber switch, I asked for a make and model but he didn't know. Also connected to the fiber switch is another unmanaged netgear switch.
I recently updated my firmware for a DIR-601 router and have internet while hardwired, but no wireless. I saved the configuration settings before updating, but this doesn't even matter because my wireless router doesn't even show up in the list of available wireless network connections. Why isn't my router showing up? I tried a few things like unplugging it and resetting it, but nothing seems to work.
I've had a WRT54GL ( for about a week now ) with no real issues. Today my wife mentioned that the net's been flaky ( wireless nto hard wired ). I originally noticed what seemed like minutes for my desktop of laptop to connect to any web pages. Loads were extremely slow. According to the computer I had a 1 mbps connection. I did the standard resetting of the modem and router.babble babble babble. Eventually, I ran a wifi analyzer from my phone to determine an ideal channel. However, while running the frequency scanner I also noticed that my broadcasting would continue to drop off the radar for a quick moment then return. This seemed to be true no matter what channel I set. What's interesting is that the signal would read as extremely strong for 45 sec - 1 minute, then completely drop the signal, then another strong broadcast. Other neighboring signals don't exhibit this behavior....well I would see the weaker signals coming in and off the radar from time to time. I'm guessing it's some type of interference? However if that's the case I can't explain why my signal seems so strong. I'm assuming I'd see a lot of fluctuation in my signal before dropping off ( instead of going from 100 to 0 in the blink of an eye ).
I think I've been carefully through every single screen and can't figure out how to disable the wireless broadcast on my new EA6500. I typically see this in the "wireless" settings but must be missing something.
I recently had trouble connection to my Linksys WRT54G router. However, in this process I had to create a couple of new profiles/networks/SSID or whatever they are called. I now have one functioning network, but my router is still broadcasting the other two networks. How can I get my router to only broadcast the one network, I am currently using? I erased them from Vista, so that my own computer does not automatically log on to the, but that is clearly not enough. Since one of the networks is not secured with a password (dont ask why), my concern is that my neighbours can access it. BTW, I am using Windows Vista on a Toshiba Satelite A200.
So you've got broadcast networks - Ethernet, PPP networks such as serial & T1/E1 and then youve got Non-broadcast multi-access links such as Frame relay and ATM. I understand the concepts of each. That's not the problem.My question is, is it possible create a broadcast network (Ethernet) but also connect a router to another router via a PPP connection? Say to a specific branch for example. Just curious if you can use multipule link types.
