Question about Zyxel (91-004-361002) Wireless Router

1 Answer

Very low connection in a very large apartment

I've just moved to a large apartment and my office is maybe 50 yards from the router. I can't move the router as there's only one phone point. Is there any way to boost the signal or maybe strengthen the antenna on my computer? (I have an Acer desktop with an antenna sticking out of the hard disk via USB port. Also, I'm only semi-literate on computers.
Thanks for any advice. I have a ZyXel 660HW-Ti wireless router supplied by True in Bangkok.

Astel,

you could possibly try a wireless repeater, many access points can now act as repeaters and are not to expensive.

How do I get my Ace laptop to connect to my wifi? It shows that it's connected to the internet and it work in my office, but when I step out of the room it won't stay connected.


Hello,

When you are within a region of discoverable network, you would be able to connect to that network's internet access. But if that network is weak, there is a possibility that when you move out of range of the network, there would be a fluctuation or disconnection. So, if you must use the wireless in the office, check that the signal strenght is high. If it is not, aviod moving about.
You may not be able to access your office network when you are out of the office.

Hope that helped?

Internet responce is low and opening a file is low,.. like opening youtube is takes a seconds or minutes to open


You can do a few things:

Reset the router by pressing the small button in the back for 15 seconds. You will need to reconfigure the router with the CD provided by the manufacturer.

Move your computer closer to the router. If you have a large house or the signal is weak, moving the router and/or computer for a direct signal will increase the speed of the connection.

Run a scan on your computer using this free tool.

9 out of 10 times, it is malware and/or a virus on the computer that slows down the connection.

Moved WNR2000 from 1 room into another and now router only connects with wireless units not the desktop it sits next to. Any suggestions?


Are you sure the cord is good from the router to the computer? It's either that or maybe a bad plug. Try another cord, and if that doesn't work, it's probably going to be something like a bad plug, or maybe a slightly loose modem board, since you moved the computer. All I can think of for the situation, hope this helps.

Moved the router to a different room and now it wont work


check the physical connection to the router. Make sure that the modem and computer are connected properly and there is no loose connection.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

My wife rearranged furniture and in the process


The router is OK, do not reset or change any settings.

There is interference between the router and the Dell. Move the router higher and point the antennas in-line with the direction of the Dell.

Look for obtacles such as refrigerator, metal file cabinet, metal desk, many walls, large mirror on wall, etc. The signal reflects and does not pass through metal or metal coatings.

RV Park,50 sites everthing A Ok. My House 1000FT from Linksys WRT54GL Router Signal Weak Can'Tget on line.Have repeater on House roof some trees on the site dnd@tyler.net


Routers generally have a 1000 foot limit, at the edge of the limit, the pc can see the router but usually will not connect, anything under 40% signal strength is usually not a connection that will work. Try moving the repeater and also try adding an amplified antenna,they are about 50$.

Want to make a network connection between two office 800 meters.


Buy 2 DIR 130 VPN routers and connect the two office networks via LAN-LAN VPN tunnels.
If you have the time and skills you can build two IPCOP firewall routers and connect via VPN tunnels (http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/ipcop/wiki)

Internet connection keeps dropping


That may sound like a "roaming tendency" issue, with your laptop wireless card or settings, and/or general radio interference. try checking and tweaking the advanced settings of your wireless card, and maybe check for outside interference between your computer and router. Many cards have roam settings that dictate how often they roam between APs. I too live in an apartment complex, where other neighbors have their own WiFi router and there can be interference, and "intrusion issues" :? if your equipment is not properly set and secured.

Cant get good connection range .


Try placing the router higher up, for example on top of a bookshelf. You may need to move the router closer to the center of your house.
