Poor connection speed

TM-802G unit, new in retail box. Drivers load fine on Win2K, unit powers up & connects to AP. But no matter how strong the connection (B or G freq.) it never transmits above 1mbs. I've tried the unit at several sites & on several wireless APs w/ the same results. Tekram website has no info or updated drivers on their site. Thanks

Re: Poor connection speed

Check both the access point AND the wireless card to make sure you havn't limited the connection to 1Mbps. Other than that it may simply be a defective unit.

I have a 60LN5710 LG Smart TV. I want to connect to the internet. I plugged in an LG AN-WF100 dongle. At first I couldn't find my AP. A few days later I found it and connected to internet, however I...


Sometimes these types of issues are difficult to troubleshoot remotely (in this case, you've got 4 potential points to address: TV, dongle, router and ISP.)

If your TV and/or dongle utilize specific ports outside of the "norm," you may need to manually configure your router to allow for this.

Depending on the distance your AP/router is from the TV/dongle, the signal may not be strong enough. (Or, the signal coming from the AP may be present--you can confirm this with another wireless device--and maybe it's just the dongle itself has a poor range.)

Also, the dongle itself may be defective. Generally, there is some form of configuration that needs to be done, one way or the other, either on the computer, or on the TV itself (like a setup option).

Most likely, it's not an ISP-related issue.

Also, try to contact Sharp Technical support. They should be able to give you some recommendations that may prove helpful.

If all else fails, see if you can track down one of the dongles listed as being compatible in the TV manual, or find a dongle that's advertised as being compatible with your specific television, as that might be your best bet.

Good Luck!

How to setup up for repeater mode

This particular Hawking device must be configured after it is connected to your LAN and powered up.

Before you can do this, you will need the software from Hawking. If your devices Serial Number begins with HEMCHWREN1 use the link below"

If you have a Revision 1 device with a Serial Number begins with HEMCREN1R1 use this link:

Once you have the software, here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Connect the A/C power adapter to an
    electrical source, and then connect it to the
    'Power' socket of the Range Extender.
  2. Connect your Range Extender to a LAN
    port on the Router or AP that you would
    like to extend (repeat) the range on.
  3. Connect your PC to any of the LAN ports
    located on the back of your router/AP.
  4. Now run the appropriate program you obtained from the instructions in the beginning of the answer.

When the auto-load page appears, click the Setup Wizard option on the right and follow the Setup directions.

Scan for your Range Extender by clicking the 'Search' button. Once found, click the device to highlight it and click 'Next".

Choose a name for your Range Extender. You will use this name to identify and connect to your extended network. Optionally, you may change your login username and password. Click 'Next'.

At this point, the Setup Wizard should automatically obtain a new IP address for your Range Extender from the Router. Please wait for this IP to generate into the IP address field. Note the new IP address and click 'Next' to continue.

In the Search box, find the Wireless Network that you would like to extend. This Range Extender works best with other wireless-N networks, but also supports wireless-B and G networks as well. Select your preferred network and then click 'Next'.

For Security Settings, you must make sure that the Range Extender's security settings are identical to that of the Router/AP that is having the signal extended. If you do not know these settings please contact your network administrator.

At this point the Setup Summary displays all configured settings of the Range Extender. If the information displayed corresponds to your desired networks settings, you can go ahead and click 'SET' to apply the settings. The HWREN1 will automatically reboot. Please be patient.

More information can be obtained on the hawking site:

ORiNOCO® 802.11a/b/g/n USB adapter does not roam

Can you turn down the transmit power, or lock a certain data rate, on the client card? Doing either of those things should initiate a roam more quickly. Do you have any control of the infrastructure configuration? You can lock the datarates on the AP's to achieve the same effet, though it may have adverse effects on other client devices.

WG111: junk? Extremely slow speeds and getting dropped a lot

Make sure to set the wireless chanel on to a specific channel. As with Vista there are some issues with wireless connection when the router is broadcasting at AUTO mode. Try diffrent channels on the router and choose the one that works best.

Also, it is advisable to resintall the adapter using the latest adapter drivers from the link below:

Hope this helps.

Low connection speed

I understand that you are getting low wireless speed through the adapter. I would suggest you to upgrade the drivers for the adapter. If the issue persists, then please change the channel on the wireless router.

Hope this helps.

Sharing internet from dlink 510g to linksys wap54g AP

yes, the manufacturer doesn't really matter as long as they are 802.11g (usually backwards compatible with a and b) so as long as the router and the adapters are installed properly NO problem

I have bought a wireless broadband router thinking It would enable me to use my laptop in wireless mode what do I need?

To use a laptop computer wirelessly a few things are required.1) make sure that the router/Access Point (AP) has the proper connections (i.e. power, data access such as ADSL or or other broadband internet connection, and good placement of the AP so that the signal goes to the locations that you want to get connected wirelessly. 2) Make sure that you have a power option where you want to connect wirelessly (either a good strong battery or a place to plug in the power cord). 3) Make sure that all appropreate security concerns are addressed (such as proper signal encoding to guard against someone using your connection to do something illegal, or that the signal does not overlap with some one else's to where there is interferance for you or them).

For specific help with making the connections or the specific software settings please post more details (computer operating system, router make and model, and connection details). Good luck and welcome to the unwired.

WG111v2 plasters my screen with bits and pieces of the Netg menu.

Hi Mark, I don't think it was a virus, it may have just been that the router wasn't compatible with your old PC. It could have been a driver issue also. Whenever you disconnect something that makes your PC malfunction, and then the PC works fine, it's almost definitely the device that you disconnected at fault. Personally I think you should have called the people that connected it to begin with, and have them fix or replace it. That is what you paid for and that's what you should get.

Hi, assuming you are running WinXP, you might want to try: 1) right click on your wireless networking icon and click repair; or 2) double click on the same icon; click on properties, scroll down to/click TCP/IP to highlight, click on properties - Tick Obtain an IP address automatically if your access point is also acting as DHCP server; or 3) get IP add + others from your Network Admin and entered numbers given; or 4) self-assign IP numbers that are pretty near your Access Point (AP) IP #s, maybe something like where your AP is, subnet mask should be the same as your AP (normally but may be different) and your default gateway normally would be the IP Add of your AP ( or whatever the AP is using) DNS could be obtained from your ISP or tick obtain automatically. Caution here that the IP number you select should not be currently in use in your network. 5) Open IE, go to tools/internet option/connection, remove any dial-up if no longer needed and check never dial a connection (assuming you don’t use a modem and would connect normally via wireless. Go to/Click LAN settings, check auto detect settings, make sure Proxy server is uncheck. 6) Ping any website from your command prompt to see if you get a response If all else fail, pls post your AP hardware (brand/model), OS. It might also be a good idea to check if your AP is connected to an ISP with an active account and that your modem is working ok. Please let me know if this works out ok for you. Cheers.
