Installed dlink router but wireless connection keeps going offand keeps saying acquiring network address.


Hi there, this issue happens if your computer cannot acquired IP address from the router. please test your router first if other computers can connect to it. If Yes, then theres something wrong with your computer wireless adapter. in order to resolved this issue is try to reisntall the drivers of your wireless adapter. it is usually located at the driver disk that came with the system. If other computer cant connect also to the router then there is something wrong with your router. sometimes alll you need to do there is restore the router from original factory settings by pressing the reset key. if same issue happened after reset then you have to call your routers manufacturer for possible replacement. thanks!

One of our computers keeps saying it cant authenticate the certificate, what should i do?


I think you are trying to connect to the wireless network on a windows XP computer. The security on the wireless network must be WEP.

In this case you can remove the list of preferred networks on the computer.
Add the network manually.
If this is the only wireless computer then change the wireless settings of the router.

Ip addy changed cant connect to wireless


Turn the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) off.
Turn it on.

Turn off the router.
Turn it on.

Restart your computer.
After you do, your "wireless" connection should work.
If you have an Ethernet cable between the router and the computer,
then your "wired" connection also should work.

I did a firmware update and now i cant get a wifi


After the firmware upgrade, did you configure the wireless router settings again?
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Cant connect to router from laptop


You first should have the wireless security for your network, if you do not have it, you can just plug your computer to the router and access its setup page through http://192.168.1.1 (by default) the click on the "wireless" tab where you will be able to see the security that you need to have your computer connected.

Wireless connection problem


Hello There, are there any wireless computers that detects your router? If there is, most of the laptop computers has a built-in on/off (toggle) switch on the side to enable or disable the wireless card on your computer. Make sure it is "ON" then check if it will detect the wireless connection.

If it is a desktop, try to reboot the computer then check again. If none of the computers can detect your router, make sure that the wireless light on the router is lit up. You may also try changing the channel on the router.

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!

Loosing wireless connection


It sounds to me like your wi-fi client might be affected by some sort of timeout or overload type kick. Is it just the PC or both the PC and the Xbox?

By "timeout" this could be your "IP Lease" that is too short (look in your ADSL PPP/PPOE configuration)
Otherwise would you be using any P2P software? If so you might want to look in the settings for something called MTU. Set this to something like 1500 then if that doesn't do it reduce it to 1492.

The only other thing I can think of is that your pc might be having authentication problems. Degrade your wi-fi security (go from WPA to WEP) and test to see if that makes any improvements.
