Question about ASUS A6U Notebook

1 Answer

Wirelss networking is intermittent or unavailable

My Network:
2 wired desktops (Dell and HP)
1 wireless laptop (Asus PC)
1 wireless desktop (Apple iMac)
1 wireless nintendo wii

My router:
D-link DGL-4500

My wireless internet access is intermittent and unreliable. It will work sometimes for some computers, but it will never work for all computers at once. I am constantly having to change settings around to make my network work.

I live in an apartment complex and I know I'm dealing with interference issues from my neighbors, but I seem to be picking up a stronger signal from them than my own router.

I put my router to wireless channel 11 using the 802.11 2.4 Ghz band. Using these settings, my Asus receives wireless internet, but my iMac does not. Likewise, my router is a dual band and can broadcast on the 5Ghz channel, but my Asus cannot pick up this signal while my iMac can. I suppose that my Asus doesn't have the network adapter necessary for the 5Ghz band. I'm not sure.

Can anyone help me figure out a way to network my apartment so that all computers can use the internet without interruption simultaneously?

On the asus in the tool bar right click the wireless icon then choose view wireless a netwrok should appear then choose connect
if no networks appear on same page click to refresh network list once you have a network then click to connect.
I think the problem is diue to interference as you said you live in an apartment.
You can get a better router system or have someone come in and configure the one you have and make it a secure connection with password

Dell Optiplex 745 desktop will not connect to internet


Most desktops need to be connected with a wire to your network because most desktop computers do not come with a wireless NIC (network interface card). If you are not sure if yours has one you can get your service tag off of your computer and type it in the Dell website (link below) under drivers and downloads and look at the original configuration for your system. If you have a Wireless NIC card in your desktop it should connect just like your laptop computers did. If not you may have a defective wireless card.

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.

Slow Internet Connect


i have the same router. I recommend that you download a new driver of your lan card for your desktop pc, also if you have P2P and bittorrent applications, try to disable them first and see the difference, those programs slow down the your internet, because they hog your bandwidth and connects to multiple users.
