Hi! It's ok to disable the wireless broadcast of the router however, it wont stop the router from broadcasting the wireless frequency. It will only hide itself from the people who are trying to connect to a free signal that are available.

How to use router without using wifi in belkin n150


This model Belkin wireless router has 4 LAN ports so you can connect a LAN cable from this wireless router to your computer.
I suggest you disable the wireless in the router so no one can access your network and Internet. If you cannot disable the wireless then you can setup WPA2 encryption to secure your wireless network or just remove the aerial off the wireless router.

Can not install software???


I find the built in windows software normally works fine, But it was probably disabled when the software was installed.
You can either plug into your router with an Ethernet cable and download the new software or enable the windows wireless.

To enable the windows wireless configuration right click the WIFI connection and go to properties ,wireless networking tab and then check the top box saying use windows to configure my wireless network settings.

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Can't connect Toshiba laptop to Linksys Wireless Routher!!


If this is a new router then the wireless is turned off by default. You need to log on to it and enable it. Don't forget to turn on security such as wep or wpa. Your toshiba should be able to see the ssid or id that each wifi broadcasts. It will also or should be the strongest signal you see.

If the router is older and the wifi is enabled then make sure that the security setting match on the toshiba. ie wep/wpa key. If it is more than about year old then you can have a failure of the wifi section. That means replaceing the router ( I have a stack of different brands all about 1 year old with a dead wifi section).

Laptops stopped connecting wireless


how about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
Good luck!

3com Router and Panasonic BLC30 wireless camera


The solution I used was. I had a second router/ap that was wireless.
I then associated the #2 router/ap to the WPA main router,
And ran the Camera on wired mode thru the 2nd Router.

When you use an ext renal wireless AP that camera.

You get much better range. I had a che-po router.
And the range was 3x what it was using the cameras antenna.

Also Here's a back door to Panasonic FTP with all the camera related software they put out,
