Unable to get connected via wireless on AZTECH ADSL2+ WIRELESS

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:''Table Normal''; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:''''; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:''Times New Roman'';}Dear Support,

I would appreciate it if you could help me with a problem I have in getting online via the wireless feature of my broadband modem. Connectingusing Ethernet cable is not a problem, however.

My wife and I have a company laptops and we often work from home. Becauseof this problem we have to use cable connection every time to get online. We have connected via wireless on other less known wireless modem brands at relatives’houses, office lobby, airports and this leads me to believe that the wirelesssoftware on my company laptop is not the problem. I suspect it is to do withsome configuration that I might have missed (though I followed theinstructions in setting up wireless connectivity andtried to comb through the settings, but to no avail).

The strange thing is that since I bought this modem about a year ago I have managedto get connected about 3 times. However, reconnecting after a successful connectionis terminated has never worked. Most of the time it just refuses to connect.

I’ve tried to keep the wireless “open” without password toconnect, thinking that this would remove some arcane restriction, but it doesn’thelp. I gave up trying for a few months now sulkily resigned to cableconnection until my spouse recently pestered me to somehow resolve it or getanother modem.

Anyway, here is the typical sequence and when it fails.

  1. Preparing to connect
  2. Associating
  3. Preparing authentication info
  4. Authenticating (it is at this stage that it usually fails, though I remember it failing at step 2 sometimes).

Step 4 takes a while whichis normal before the it spits back a disappointing message

''Authentication failed - Unable to reach server to complete authenticationrequest.''

If you can please help me with this problem, I would be mostindebted and grateful as it would definitely increase my happiness, get my wifeoff my back and save a few bucks while at it.

If you need more info to troubleshoot, I would be glad tohunt it down in settings and provide.

Thanks & regards,
Daniel Yii

    It appears that the "Encryption" requirements between your Workplace and Home network are the issue.

    You did not state what type of wireless card you are using and what is the speed? 811a /b /g or /n? . These questions must be answered before any meaningful info can be supplied to you

SOURCE: wireless routers

Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out.
Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.

SOURCE: wireless not working

Check for the wireless security settings in your modem.. and check if your airport is connected properly, if it is connected properly, then you would get a valid ipaddress, try resetting the modem and reconfigure your wired and wireless settings, if possible , try to upgrade the latest firmware for your modem and then reconfig it..

SOURCE: settings saved do not match requirements on this computer

Go into network connections on the laptop and select the Wireless Network. Go into properties and find the TCP/IP settings and ensure that the IP address setting is set to Automatic and the DNS settings also. If you have wireless security set on the router you will have to set that up on the laptop as well.

I have a Fridgidaire stove FE369COSE. Ran self cleaning cycle but now oven door won't unlock. Oven is cool but an error code of f9 is flashing. Does anyone have a solution? jadimin

I've had this happen with my Frigidaire stove too. The "locked" light is on.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Open the oven door and locate the light switch. Hold it in - sometimes it makes a noise and resets it.

If that doesn't work, push the Clean button and the Cancel button simultaneously and hold for about 30 seconds. The “locked” light should disappear. If it is working, you’ll hear a mechanical hum as it resets.

Placing date/time on the photo

Oddly enough Canon thought that people would only want date stamps on "Postcards". The date stamp options is only allowed when you select the "Postcard" size (1600X1200) in the function menu.

I hope this helps!

Problem pairing wireless mouse to reciever

HI ALL, Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} I think you are facing pairing problem, solution is here, First of all please understand ‘what is pairing’ Pairing is the process of coordinating your mouse's transmitter with your mouse's receiver. It requires both parts to operate on the same frequencies, usually by using the same identification code. Pairing takes place to try to eliminate interference. Some devices automatically pair both devices at start up; others need to be manually paired. Step 1. Plug in RF DONGLE into USB port, Step 2. Put the batteries in mouse (in right direction, see batteries. Direction symbols in the battery compartment +/- signs) and place the batteries. Cover, Now you can see the red light glowing on the bottom of the mouse, now your mouse is ready to pairing There is two buttons for pairing the mouse BUTTON 1 – this on the RF DONGLE, top/up side BUTTON 2 - this is at the bottom of the wireless mouse, NOTE- after pressing button-1, one time, your RF DONGLE will be ON SERCH MODE for 7 seconds, Step 3, now press BUTTON 1, one time, and move the mouse, if mouse curser is not moving then press BUTTON 2 one time – now defiantly your mouse will work, If you need any other technical support for GMAX, products please contact
