Make sure it's plugged into the right port in the back of the router. If you are runing a cable modem, try holding down on the reset button in the back of the router for a few seconds. See if that will work.

If you are using DSL, there may be some settings that your povider can give you to put into the connections settings on your router.

Poor signal with WiFi on my zeepad


Having a wireless Internet signal in your home allows multiple devices to use the same Internet connection without having to run lengths of Ethernet cable to each device. Given that the wireless network is transmitted over the air, the consistency of your Internet connection depends on the strength of the wireless signal. If wireless signal strength is not strong enough to give you a consistent Internet connection, there are a few simple steps for finding the problem and improving your signal strength.

Reset all devices. The majority of Internet issues, including poor wireless signal strength, are very often solved by a simple power cycle of all the devices in the network. Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and remove them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug the power to that device). Leave them unplugged for a full 30 seconds, plug them back in and restart your computer. When your computer fully reboots, check your wireless signal strength to see if it has improved. If it has not, further troubleshooting is required. Move your computer closer to your router, or your router closer to your computer. Wireless routers do not have unlimited range. One reason your computer may be getting a weak signal strength from your wireless network could be because your computer is simply outside of the router's range. Typically, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will install your modem in one specific location in the house and the modem will not work at other locations, so moving the modem or modem/router combination may not be a possibility. If this is the case, you may need to move the computer to a location that is within the range of the wireless router's broadcast. If you still get poor signal strength, your router may be experiencing a malfunction. Contact the technical support department of your router manufacturer. Router malfunctions often are not the result of a bad or broken router, but of something much simpler, such as the router's needing a firmware upgrade or an incorrect setting on the router's internal setup. If your router manufacturer is unable to improve your wireless signal strength, it may be time to purchase a new router. Purchase a new router. Wireless routers are priced in part based on how widely their wireless signal broadcasts (in other words, the more expensive the router you buy, the larger a wireless signal the router will broadcast). Included in the packaging of each wireless router is the approximated range, in square footage, of that router's wireless network. A good rule of thumb is to know the square footage of your house and buy a router that can accommodate that square footage. That way, as long as the router is functioning properly, you will have strong wireless signal strength throughout your entire home. Hope this helps.

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

How to set up the wireless internet connect on my laptop to this new SBG901 modem?


Short answer: YOU DO NOT.

The cable-modem just converts from the cable-company's signals to/from Ethernet signals.

You use an Ethernet cable to connect the output from the cable-modem to the 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on a router with wireless capabilities. Then, you configure the router to create your own wireless network, with:
* an SSID ("network name")
* encryption level (use: WPA)
* a password for your network

Then, your wireless device can cite the SSID/password to authenticate to the router.

It won't connect with laptop


Here are a few simple things to check:
If your PC is connected via wireless:
- Make sure you didn't go out of signal range
If your PC is connected via wired cable:
- Make sure the cable is secured into your router
If both check out:
- Check the cable between your router and internet modem.
If all connections are solid:
- Try using a different cable from the PC to the router, and from the router to your internet modem. Cables can go bad, and a new one could be an easy fix.
If all else fails, you may have experienced an intermitted connection issue:
- Try unplugging your internet modem and router for 30 seconds, then plug in your internet modem first and after 60 seconds plug in your router.
- Try restarting your PC

If none of those work, contact your Internet Service Provider.

DLink wireless router will not connect to internet we have a new modem, tried connecting through a cable, and wireless, tried new cables, rebooting, resetting and all standard procedures. Is there...


It's the modem, not the wireless router that is the problem.
The modem must have the proper account name & password for it to work.

Test:
Connect a computer directly into the modem (without router). The modem has an Ethernet connector. If you can't get Internet by connecting a computer directly to the modem, then you will never get the router to work.
Contact your ISP. They may not give you the account name / password, but instead do a service call to your location.

Wifi connection problems


Many internet provider only covers the installation of the cable modem. When you connect a router to the modem, the internet provider views the router as a new computer and not authorized since when they setup the modem, it was connecting directly to the computer, not the router. You need to contact your internet provider and let them know the situation, and usually they have a website to activate or add the router to their list under your account. If this is not done, usually it won't be able to get the internet. You are getting the signal from the router since it is broadcasting the signal, but no internet connection.

Need help with best connection type for college student in dorm


The enhaced version just give more range of signal over the normal dynex, regarding the internet provider it depends because sometimes you'll need a password and user to connect to the wireless signal. The dynex is used to connect from a cable signal (RJ-45)internet and then it will transfer the connection to wireless so it can be use from any laptop with wireless connection. So for example you DSL internet connection is a cable (RJ-45) then you connect that cable to the dynex router, then the router will automatically transmit the signal to wireless so any nearby pc can connect to it. If the laptop doesn't have wireless, then you'll have to buy a card to be able to connect to wireless signal or you could by also a (RJ-45 straight-through cable Cat 5e) to connect from one of the ports from the DYNEX to the laptop. Hope it helps.

How do i hook up a westell router to a moterola comcast modem?


Okay, well something is obviously wrong.
This is how it should be connected. Internet to modem, then with an Ethernet cable, connect the modem to the router (jack1) then with another Ethernet cable, connect the router (jack2) to the computer.
If you are still having problems, then contact your company to see if they could walk you through it, or if they needed to set things up.
Also, where are you connecting your laptop from? Is it very far from the router? Perhaps your router's signal strength isn't great enough? (This would mean getting a new, more powerful router.)
