    nice - cut's the troubleshooting

    if the computer's report "wireless connection" disconnection - not a browser error "cannot find page" , try upgrading / re-flashing the firmware.

    BT's kind enough to provide this here

My Belkin USB 10/100 Ethernet adapter is detecting as a buetooth device when I connect to my laptop... I am using Windows XP as an operating system. I guess WIDCOMM in windows is causing that...


Wireless Zero configuration is a utility that connects your computer to a wireless network.

If Wireless Zero configuration is not enabled, the following message will appear: "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection."

Note: If you have the Belkin utility installed, you'll need to change the Program Choice in the Options tab so the Windows XP Utility is selected.

If you don't see a wireless tab, then close it and click start then run and type service.msc and press ok. doublde-click the wireless zero configuration and set it to automatic then click start to start the service. then do the first few instructions until you see the wireless tab. Bullet-mark the "Let windows manage wireless network" then click apply or ok.

My wi-fi keeps randomly disconnecting but is not bc a weak signal


Your card is ok. There is interference between the router and your computer.

1. The router or the PC may be "hidden" behind a metal cabinet, refrigerator, etc.
2. Move router higher
3. Microwave ovens and some cordless phones (not cellphones) that use 2.4GHz will interfere with the 2.4GHz WiFi signal.
4. Point the router antennas in-line with the direction of the PC.
5. Move the router closer to the PC.

How to fix intermittent wireless signal with Dell Inspiron 1501


It's the Wireless Zero Configuration service that's doing it. Every 10 minutes or so, the WZC service goes out and tries to look for wireless networks. During this time, it can sometimes disconnect from your wireless network. Usually its brief, merely a few seconds, but long enough to kick you out of games, messaging clients, etc.

There is no easy way to resolve this other than stopping the WZC service after startup and successful connection to your wireless. Unfortunately, if you disable this service altogether, your computer will never connect to any wireless and when looking at the Wireless networks list, it'll mention the WZC service is disabled.

You will also need to re-enable this service everytime you take your PC to places where you'll be connecting to other wireless networks. To stop this service, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Start -> Run -> and type "services.msc" (without quotes)
  2. Scroll to the very bottom of the list
  3. Right click on the Wireless Zero Configuration and choose stop
Once it stops, continue working with your wireless network. If you no longer have disconnection problems every 10 minutes roughly, you've solved your problem. Repeat the above steps after every reboot as the service will be re-enabled after the computer restarts.

Actiontec GT704-WG wireless connection not working


Hi,
you say it suddenly stopped working, if you can connect to the router via ethernet cable then try to access the router's web utility page and make sure your router is in mixed or G-only. If you can't still connect to the router through wireless then try restarting the Wireless Zero Configuration from windows. This is how it's made: Go to control panel and double-click "administrative tools", then double-click "services". You will see a list, scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and click "stop", you'll see a progress bar. After that click "start", you'll see another progress bar. Now try connecting to your router via wireless connection. If you still can't connect then repair the connection by right-clicking the wireless icon at the bottom right corner. Keep repairing until you connect.
Hope this works!
