Wireless routers can broadcast on several different channels, similar to the way radio stations use different channels. In the United States and Canada, these channels are 1, 6, and 11. Just like you'll sometimes hear interference on one radio station while another is perfectly clear, sometimes one wireless channel is clearer than others. Try changing your wireless router's channel through your router's configuration page to see if your signal strength improves. You don't need to change your computer's configuration, because it'll automatically detect the new channel

    you need to go into your router configuration and change the channel. That is your best bet and probably the easiest anyhow.

    I have to take a guess here but i would start by going into the control panel from the start menu then go into system then choose the hardware tab. From there right click on the router or any wireless that might be in there. You might want to call the mannufacturer and ask them if this does not work since they should know more about the unit than i do.

There are many reasons you could loose a connection from a laptop to a router, without giving any information on the model of your laptop, router, wireless setup (Password etc...) it is somewhat impossible to give you an answer.

When I use my wireless land line phone I lose my Internet connection with my laptop computer. I have a Dynex wireless G router and the number on the back is 7J29A. Is there anything I can do to fix this...

Your wireless router can be configured to use different "channels." Each channel is a range of frequencies (around 2.4GHz) which is also what your phone uses. By default most wireless routers are usually set to channel #8. Change it to channel 1 or channel 2. If that doesn't work you need a different wireless router or phone, so the frequencies won't match.

Connection problems

Reconnect the computers as you had setup originally when everything worked.

Unplug the modem and the router. Wait about 30 secs.

Plug the modem in. Wait about 30 secs.

Plug the router in.

See if you can gain access to the internet. If not, do Start|Run|Cmd

At the window, type ipconfig, and reply back what it says.

No wireless

Hello Chantalallie

Is the laptop able to connect to the Internet wirelessly over other networks? (say at a coffee shop or Internet cafe, etc.)

(We want to pin down whether or not the issue is w/ your laptop or w/ the router.)

If the laptop is not functioning wirelessly at all now, make sure that the wireless radio button on your laptop has not been inadvertently placed in the OFF position. Where that button is located varies w/ ea. laptop. If you're not familiar w/ where it is, look closely along the sides and front of your laptop and above the keyboard (below the monitor).

Still on the assumption that your laptop's wireless radio is not working:
(A) Click on START
You should see a connection called "Wireless" or something similar.
(C) Check to see if that connection is DISABLED.
(D) If it is, right click on it and choose ENABLE

OK, now we'll await your answers before proceeding as doing so now would necessitate making assumptions regarding your equipment, operating system, etc. that may not be correct.

Thank you,

Can't connect one laptop

Ok this is a simple, but difficult fix at times. I need to know if the other laptop is used in and or outside of your home? In addition I need to know if you have security like a WEP or WPA setup? Do you have a home network setup using this router/modem? I may have other questions, but these I need to know in order to give you an exact answer!
