Thank u for the clarification..if it says "low signal strength" then u will have to reduce the distance between the laptop and the wireless router..also please ensure there are no big objects,walls etc between the two..u can get better signal strength by doing these..also other nearby wireless networks and cordless phones can hamper with signal..hope it helps!regards!

    few questions:

    have u installed the software for the D link and followed the instructions of configuring the network?

    is your internet working otherwise without the wifi?

    are you able to view your wifi network name on your system or for that matter any other nearby network?

    when you type 192.168.1.1 in the internet browser what do you see?

    my solution was for the "low signal strength" and not for the new comment that you posted today..hence your rating is quite harsh..

    hi!check the wireless network settings..some things like MAC filtering will not allow you to connect to the network even if visible..

I have recently purchased the wire/wireless


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

Unable to connect my wifi laptop to my existing wireless b/band


Your wife's laptop is setup to connect to another wireless network. It must be set up now for the wireless network that you are trying to connect to. This means that your wife's laptop is trying to connect to the wireless network somewhere else. You need to let the laptop look for available wireless networks. It should be able to see your wireless network. It will then require you to enter the password that you have set in your Zyxel. If you don't know the password, call Zyxel.

  1. Check the wireless adapter of your laptop. To do that, go to control panel then go click on System then go to Device manager.
  2. On Device Manager window, look for Network adapter. Check all the Network adapters installed to your laptop.

  5. Make sure that the wi-fi button of your laptop is enabled.
Hope this helps!

Connection problem


don't shout at me, but many of the older compaq laptops did not come with a wireless nic installed, and the ones that did sometimes did not support G let alone N.

If able you need to check that the Wireless NIC if installed/avaliable supports your wireless router or most likly the otherway round.

firstly I would try removing any USB wireless adapters that you may have in use from one of your other computers and try it in the compaq, if sucessful you know that it is not your setup of your home network at fault.
