Changing router settings from 802.11G to mixed w/802.11B

Setting up my new Palm TX. I have a wireless router in my home so I thought for sure I could use the WiFi in the Palm TX in my home. Couldn't connect sucessfully, tried Palm Tech support. They informed me the router setting has to be either 802.11B or a 'mixed' setting where it has both B & G ???
Can I change the wireless router setting from my desktop?
if so, how? Will that change effect the other laptop users in my home that use this router?
thank you so much for your help!

    I have the same problem when trying to connect to Linksys from my phone. I wanted to try to chance my Network settings from G ONLY to MIXED.

    When I go to URL: 192.168.1.1 and try USERNAME admin PASWORD admin or USERNAME admin PASWORD [leaving it blank], the login pop-up just keeps coming back and I get a purple screen with the error message: "
    401 Unauthorized!
    Authorization required!"

    And ideas? I need help...

Hi,

Switching the wireless mode is easy, and, if you choose "mixed," the other computers in your home can continue to use the G mode unaffected. How you adjust the mode depends on the brand of router. Since Linksys is the most common, here is how it works on a Linksys router:

1) Open your web browser (IE, Mozilla, etc.)
2) Type the web address 192.168.1.1 (default for Linksys routers).
3) You should be asked for a username and password. The default for Linksys is username "admin" and password "admin" OR username "admin" and password [blank].
4) You should then see the Linksys setup screen. The tabs across the top include Setup, Wireless, Security, etc. Click on Wireless.
5) Pull down the menu next to "Wireless Network Mode" (which shold be set to "G -Only" and choose "Mixed." Then click "Save Settings."

This should allow your B-capacle Palm to use the network without a password while still allowing your encryption-capable computers to use the G mode.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

I have a belkin wireless G+ router work with a power link adapter?


Just use the unused one to create an access point.To do so you need to login on the web UI of the router and change to an access point instead of a infrastructure.

Remote keyboard is interfering with dlink


Hi,
By remote i suppose you mean your Wireless keyboard. if that is the case then simply log into your wireless router. All you need to do it to change your WiFi broadcasting channel. Go to WiFi or Wireless Lan setting and make sure that broadcasting is b/g/n mixed mode, then check what broadcasting channel is selected starting from 1 to 11/13, in case of extreme start or end make in middle like 6 or 7 and in case of any middle number like 6 to 8 make it either 10 or 3. By changing the broadcasting channel shall hopefully stop any interference with other frequencies.
Good Luck

The security setting changed to access my wireless


Hello there!

Well, there can me a lot of small little problems for you this time. I suggest you to firstly logon your router via his general ip adress. After you change wireless password entry settings (i suggest you to use wpa2 systems, I suppose you dont need bigger security if its home network) , you should then check your wireless reciever, restart it, refresh transmiter to search new connections, and when it founds your name connection, i.e. Dynex G, click on it and it should automaticly asks you for a password. Enter it and save it. Thats about it.

Sincerely
Aleksandar Adzic

Wireless will not connect to internet after installing XP Service Pack 3. Router is a Linksys WRT54G2, adapter is a Linksys WMP11. Router is set to "mixed".


Try upgrading the firmware for your routher and the linksys WMP11. Also try setting router to 802.11g instead of mixed to see if it connects.

I have a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network card on my Toshiba Satellite M50. One fine day, it was working fine on the network at home, and then suddenly got disconnected, and soon after stopped being...


I have the same card with Tecra A4. It was working fine with a D-Link 615 wireless router then for no reason it stop working I was able to detect my wirless network but no communication session started between my card and the router. I restrat the router and change the OS fro Linux to XP but still I have the same problem.

At the end I notice that in simple words my card cannot talk at all with the router. So I went to the router wirless settings and change the protocol from:
mixed 802.11 N, mixed 802.11 G, mixed 802.11 B
to only
802.11 G and 802.11B

Then it works fine onb both Linux and XP

Connection and signal strength depends upon the router. Just go through the settings on the wireless router, try changing the wireless channels.And also change the wireless mode on the router to 802.11g.This should be the compatible mode for your wireless adapter. to do this first connect the router with the help of an ethernet cable .Please follow the below steps:
1)Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based
Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “192.168.2.1” (you do
not need to type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then
press the “Enter” key.
2)
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The
home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any
changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the
“Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page
will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password
entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the
“Submit” button to log in.
3)
Clicking on the header of the “Wireless” tab will take you to the
“Wireless” header page. From this page, the Router’s wireless radio
can be enabled or disabled (the default setting is enabled). Under the
“Wireless” tab, there are links that allow you to make changes to the
wireless network settings.
4)
Your Router can operate in three different wireless modes:
“g and b”, “g only”, and “b only”.
5)
Change the wireless channel to 9 or 11
Click on save changes once you have done this
This should work,if it doesnt work let us know the exact problem in detail.

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.

Need to change Linkys 802.11G to a 'mixed' 802.11B


Thanks for choosing fixya.com

Changing to "mixed" mode should not cause any problems with your other system. It simply tells the router to transmit and receive using both B and G.

First you will need to log into the routers web interface. If you have the manual it will help greatly in doing this.

Otherwise it is usually default of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. Some routers use alternate ip's the exact model would let me look up more information.

By putting one of those ip's in the address bar of your web browser your should be taken to your routers web interface. From here you can change all the settings you'll need.

You will want to find and click the "Wireless" tab at the top of the page. In here it should have a drop down menu for B-Only, G-Only, Or "mixed".

Set it to "mixed" and press save.

Here is a link to a screenshot of what the page should look like

I hope this helps you.

Cannot connect to my wireless network


you may have another wireless connection other than your own set as automatic, or more than one connection in your settings of the same name, so right click on your network icon in your task bar or in network connections in device manager and select view all wireless connections, click on it and when all the connections show, highlght, delete all of them, then close the window.

 

Your notebook should now indicate that it found new wireless connections, click on the popup and select your connection name and click connect, at this point you will be asked to enter the passkey if you have security enabled.
