Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610
I work from home and recently upgraded from my old D610 to a new D620 (Dell computer). The locaton of my modem and Motorola WR850G router in my home has not changed but I'm not getting the range that I got last week with my old computer. Our house is not large....and I've always been able to get a high signal strength when being downstairs from the router. But now, I get a low signal strength and sometimes my connectivity to the internet drops all together. I have rebooted my modem and router. My internet company has verified that there is no "packet loss" on my internet connection. (?) What can be done to get the high signal strength back?
Re: Router not working as well with D620 as with my older...
If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123

Since the Dell connects somewhere else, you know its wireless stuff is working. You may have signal issues at home, either low strength or interference. Try repositioning the router. Change its channel through the router setup page to see if that helps. Also be sure you have your security settings right in the laptop. This should get you going.
These are some reasons why your new Hp laptop can't connect through your Netgear Router is because your Router has a security that used a password to connect to your router or the ip address of your desktop and Dell laptop is already setup to the router to work with internet.
That means the older 2wire card was a B model adapter, which can only run at 11mbps. The other laptop most likely has built in wireless or some other adapter in it that runs on the G model, which is 54 mbps. There is no way to fix this issue, other then aquiring a new wireless adapter for your older laptop.
Dear ckclee, Just uninstall your new limewire and restart your computer. try to re-install the old version of your "work-fine-Limewire". If it doesn't work, the only way is go to start menu, browse the accessories, carefully choose "SYSTEM RESTORE". when it runnng.. pick the date which your computer work best, the restart it, remember... windows can only restore and set back time status not more than a week, according to my experience. Good Luck
The first thing u need to do connect ur router to the computer with a wired connect access the router page (firmware) ip address which need to enter to open the same on internet explorer is 192.168.0.1 enter the user id & password of router (default user id & password is admin or password)
