I kept getting the message that my wireless connection needed to be turned on and finally found out how to do that. I went to my control panel and selected HP Wireless Assistant and turned it on. After doing that I saw a button on my laptop light up and discovered that also can turn it on and off.

So If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless router, try with the following steps.
1.)Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the WiFi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from ScanMySpeed.com before and after following these steps.

Help with wireless internet connection


More than likely there are two issues. Either there is a physical switch that is turned off; or the wireless chip has gone out. The chips are about $30 online.

I was connecting my siemens wireless router 6520 and i reset it after doing that the wireless light went off and would not work again anything i can do?


If you reset the router, you will likely need to go into the router's configuration through a wired connection and enable the wireless functionality of the router.

Please see the excerpt from the below website:

NOTE: The IP address in the example may differ than your actual IP

Please follow these steps to set up your a wireless network with your Siemens Speedstream 6520 Wireless Modem.

To create a wireless network you first need to enable the wireless functionality of the router. To do this you need to connect the router by an Ethernet cable to your computer. Once the wireless modem is plugged into your computer via Ethernet and turned on please follow these steps to enable the wireless functionality.

Open Internet Explorer or your preferred browser.
  1. In the address bar type 192.168.254.254 then press enter.
  2. This will bring up the main page for the Router.
  3. Once the start up page has loaded you will then need to login by clicking on the "Go" button in the top left of the window.
  4. This will bring up the Login page. Once the page has loaded please enter the username username and your password, then click "Log In".

Note: The default password is "admin", although this may have changed if you have changed the password.

Once this page has loaded click on "Home Network" and then click "Advanced".
Once the new page has loaded you will have a list of links, please click on the "Configure the Local Speedstream Gateway Wireless Network" link.
This will bring up a new page called "Wireless Summary".
Once this page has loaded place click on "Begin Wireless Wizard".
On the new page under where it says "Wireless Interface" please click "Enable".
Once you have changed the wireless interface to "Enable" please enter a name for your wireless network where it says SSID (e.g. "Home Office").
Then please click on the "Next" link.
On the new page, please change "Security Mode" to "WEP 64-bits" and click "Next".
This will bring up the "Wireless 64-Bit WEP Configuration" page.
On this page you will need to enter a passphrase to generate your WEP keys. We have used "icecream" but you can use anything. Once you have entered a phrase click "Generate Key".

This will generate four 64 Bit Key's. Please select any one of the four keys and click "Next".
Note: You will need the 64 Bit Key that you select in the future for devices to log on to the wireless network. Make sure you can remember your chose a passphrase that you will remember.
Once you have clicked "Next" a new page will load called "Wireless Filter Configuration". This is an advanced page for allowing access and denying access to certain computers or devices. We have set the "Wireless Filter" mode to "Disable".
Please click on the "Next" button to bring you to the "Wireless Options Configuration Page".
On this page pleas make sure that:
"Data Transfer Rate:" is set to "Auto"
"RTS/CTS Threshold:" is set to "2432"
"Fragmentation Threshold:" is set to "2346"
Once these setting are correct please click "Next" to bring up the "Wireless Wizard" page.
Once this page has loaded, you have finished enabling your wireless network so click "Finish".

This will bring up the "Wireless Summary" page again, but next to where it says "State" it should say "Enabled". Please ensure your settings are the same as the screen shot below ("SSID" and "Security Key Info" may be different").
If all these details are the same please click on the "Reboot" button to save the changes, and then once the new page loads click on "Reboot" to restart the router.
Once your modem has fully rebooted, please close your browser.
You are now able to unplug the Ethernet cable from the router and the computer.

How to connect other computers to your wireless network
On the computer you want to connect to the wireless network please follow these steps.
Once your browser is closed please click on the "Start" menu on the bottom of your screen, the click on "All Programs", hover over "Accessories", then hover over "Communications" and then click on "Network Connections".
Once "Network Connections" has opened under where it says "LAN or High-Speed Internet" please right click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then click "View Available Wireless Networks".
This should load the "Wireless Network Connection" window, and you should be able to see the wireless network you have set up.
Note: If there is nothing in your list you will need to click the "Refresh network list" button.

Once you see your network, make sure it is highlighted and then click "Connect".
Once you have clicked "Connect" it will ask you for your "Network Key". Please enter your 10 character key next to where it says "Network Key" and then retype the 10 character key where it says "Confirm Network Key".
Note: Your "Network Key" is the 64 Bit Key that you generated with a passphrase in step 16.
Once you have entered and confirmed your network key click on connect.

If everything is successful, the "Wireless Network Connections" window should say "Connected" next to your wireless network that you set up.
You should now be able to browse the internet.

I just switched to TimeWarnerCable/Internet. How do I connect two PC's to the Aris TM602G Modem? Then How do I connect my Laptop? Bob


You connect the Aris to a wireless router with say 4 LAN ports.
You connect the PCs with LAN cables to the LAN ports on the wireless router and install a wireless card in the laptop if it does not have one.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Comcast is providing my Internet through an Arris router. How do I wirelessly connect my laptop to the router?


Is it a wireless router? Do you have a wireless adapter on your laptop? If you don't have a wireless adapter on your laptop you need to install one. If you do have one you need to make sure it is turned on and enabled. You can do this by checking your device manager and making sure that your drivers are installed. Go into your network connections and make sure it is connecting. Also some of these wireless adapters need to be turned on in CMOS if it does not have a switch. About your router if it is not a wireless router, you'll need to get one to connect to it or talk to Comcast and see if they can switch out the one you have for a wireless one. Good Luck and let me know how it goes.

Internet on-off key: how to use it ? May it be


hi, rmoriconi
pay no attention to people that tells you that that switch turns your wireless on and off..you do not have a wireless modem

all it does is block your incoming and outgoing internet service, its a security feature and thats it

(your modem is not wireless, if it is, its the first wireless modem i have ever seen)...

I want the wireless light to be on. its the only light thats off


if all the lights on the modem are Green then it means there's no prob with the hardware. just make sure that you're going to use the right WEP key or wireless password. the network name is 2wirexxx, the X is the the last 3 numbers of the SN which can be found on the bottom of your 2wire modem.make sure that your wireless switch is also turned on of course. the wireless light on the modem will lit if it is connected
