After you hook up the router look in the wireless settings and select the option to clone the mac address. Some isp's block more than one mac address because they do not support home networks.

I bought Ainol Spark Yesterday, My Wifi is very Slow even though its just 2 meter away from my Broadband? Please find me some solution


So, If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless try with the following steps,
1.)Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.
Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from www.scanmyspeed.com before and after following these steps.

My router did not come with any software do i need it because i cannot get mine to work


Please reset the router by placing a pin in reset hole and push the pin sslightly, (remember you need to do this when the rrouter is in ON state)
Then connect your router to your computer using ethernet port (this is for configuration) and also connect the ADSL cable.

now open internet explorer and type in //192.168.1.1
Then it will prompt you for username and password
Username: admin
Passsword: password
this username and password is by default.

then configure your router as you need by changing display name, password authentication, MAC registration etc...

If you face problem with connecting internet even following the above steps, then you need to contact ISP(internet service provider) for settings.

Thanks,
Satheesh

Try a router reboot.

2. Shut down and restart the laptops, unplug the XBOX for 20 secondes even though its working.

If this doesnt work you can try resetting the router to the factory settings.

My internet keeps dro, i have installed filters ,


There is one case where everything is fine but still connection drops too often.---
This happens when the network type of your laptop is "public" as ublic networks are less secure, routers usually drop connections after sme time. Change the network type to "private". This should solve your problem. There is one more setting in your router where is says something like "automatically login when disconnected". Selecting this option allows automatically login to ISP when connection is dropped from ISP temporarily.

If network connectivity itself is the problem then you can debug followingly.

Step-1:
If ISP company says everything is fine from their side, then you need to check your router. To confirm this first connect the wall outlet of ISP to your laptop and check network connectivity. If there is problem, then ISP has to fix it.

Step-2:
If connection works fine then ISP is fine and you need to check your router settings. Now check network connectivity by connecting the laptop to the router through a ethernet wire. If the network does not work then your router hardware could be wrong and may need servicing or replacement. If this works fine then go to step-3.

Step-3:
Try resetting your router by using a paperclip. Usually the reset button can be found at the backside of your router. This will reset all the settings and there by making as good as a fresh one. Try to access internet from a place close to router where router signal is strong.
Change authentication and other network settings of your router to connect to ISP. Now network should work fine. Ensure that you set router password to avoid unauthorized access to your router by others.

I have a Dell XPS 1330 laptop and a DI-524 wireless router.


Unsure what your problem is exactly but here is something to try. Power off all computers, modem and router. Power up the modem first, and wait until it is completely up before proceeding. Next power up the router and wait until it is completely up, the only light that probably wont be lit is the LAN light. Then power up each computer, they can all be powered on at the same time, that part really doesnt matter. See if that fixes the problem.

Confuguration Issue


You seem to be following the correct procedure, so the only thing left to do is re-set the router. My best guess is that the router password was inadvertently changed at some point. Reset to default settings: The following reset procedure will completely restore the default settings on the router including your password. Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit. Step 2 With the router powered on, press and hold the Reset button. Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds. Step 4 Release the Reset button. Step 5 The device is now at factory defaults. The default username is admin and leave the password blank. You'll need to follow all the steps you performed initially to re-connect to your ISP.

Sympatico & DLink DI-704P


It usually is simple, and hopefully the answer is as well. If you haven?t already done so unplug the modem and the router. Wait for a few seconds and then plug the modem in followed by the router. Reboot your PC and try the Internet again. If it still doesn?t work then I would try doing a hard reset of your router and reconfigure using the setup process outlined by the manufacturer. If that still doesn?t work let us know and we?ll continue ?.
