SOURCE: router randomly stops sending out wireless signal

You may be getting interference from other routers in your area.
Check to see what channels the other routers are broadcasting in your area, change it to a channel that is not being used.
The location of the router could affect the signal strength, move the router away from concrete reinforced walls etc, and or move the router to a higher position in a clear space.

SOURCE: Hello, I have Edimax br-6204wlg router

You will need to connect to the router with a cable and access the router configuration and setup. Make sure it is set to broadcast SSID and that it is not using WEP or that you have the same WEP key and Network SSID configured in the laptop. Next you need to check that the channel it is using to broadcast SSID information is not channel 6 if you have an HP laptop. Change that to channel 10. Of course the first thing you need to double check is that your wirelss on the laptop is turned on and capable of connecting to the router. If the router is using 802.11B and your laptop is only capable of using 802.11G they will never see each other.

SOURCE: hi there, i got a

Sure, I can help. First off I need to know more information. Are you planning on connecting the printer, through USB, to your laptop then sharing the printer from there to other computers? If so, it is a matter of adding that printer, going into the printer properties, sharing tab, and sharing the printer. Or are you trying to share your printer wirelessly? If so you may need to buy a wireless print server. It acts as a base to share that printer and then allow you to wirelessly find it and connect. If the above doesn't help please tell me the make and model of your printer, laptop, and wireless router.

My router isnt sending signal to my printer


The router doesn't send signals to a printer. The Linksys transmits a radio signal recieved by the wireless adapters on other devices, if your printer has wireless compatibility it must be setup on the printer, in the wireless settings. I don't think it's a Linksys issue. It a computer software issue. If you post the Computer Make, Model, and your OS, the Printer Make, mode,l I will try to help you. Is this the first time using the Printer?

My d-link dir-651 does not have a good signal


Things That Affect Wireless Router Signals
1. Many wireless routers are using the same wireless channel. Many manufacturers choose channel 6 as the default. Change to another channel. 2. Analogue video senders used to send audio and video to other TVs in the home. 3. Microwave ovens emit interference in the 2.4GHz band. 4. Wireless speakers and console controllers can cause interference with the wireless router. 5. Bluetooth devices, newer Bluetooth devices can jump to different frequencies if there is a connection problem. 6. Power cables located near the wireless router can cause dropouts and speed reduction. 7. Fish tanks will cause massive Wi-Fi shadow on the other side of the tank from the wireless router. 8. Depending upon the location of large mirrors will reflect wireless signal away your computer. 9. Building materials will block wireless signals such as plasterboards with metal foil, reinforced concrete walls and floors. Also objects near the wireless router such as metal filing cabinets and other electrical appliances. 10. Blinking Christmas lights can reduce Wi-Fi performance by 25% when it is close to the wireless router.

After doing a reset and a 30-30-30, the router is not sending out a wireless signal.


Hi bamavincents,

If you reset the router the settings will return to its factory state so we need to check if the wireless settings is correct. Listed below are the steps on how to access the router and the settings that we need to change or check.

- Make sure the router is powered ON and operational.
- Check if the Wireless Router Radio is enabled. A wireless adapter can only connect to an AP or wireless router if the wireless feature of the router is enabled. .
- Open an Internet browser and login to your router's setup page. Type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net on your Internet browser. Then type admin as the username and password for your password. Password is case sensitive.
- Go to Advanced menu and click Wireless Settings.
- The Enable Wireless Router Radio box must be checked to enable wireless function on the router and Make sure the SSID is being broadcast and not hidden.
- Make sure that the wireless switch of your computer is ON before searching for your Access Point or SSID. If possible try another computer if it will detect the wireless signal. If after all steps and still not sending a signal there might be a problem with the router.

Thanks for usin Fixya.

If the wireless light is not ON,does that indicate that this router is not sending a wireless signal? and if so how this can be resolved?


Yes, it means that the router is not sending a wireless signal.. You will have to follow the instructions in the manual that came with your router to enable wireless transmission.

My router is not sending a wireless signal but my internet is on


Unless you have a meter that detects wireless signals, you cannot be sure that your router is not sending out a signal. If you access the configuration utility for the router using your web browser and the gateway IP address, you can nose around inside of the router and determine if wireless is on or off. If you see the SSID on your computer and it will not connect then it is most likely a problem with your computers' configuration. If you don't see the SSID it is either checked to not broadcast, wireless is turned off, or you router is defective.
