    The problem did not have anything to do with the router as I had thought. A friend was able to reset the computer to a date before the problem occurred and this did the trick.Thanks for trying to help.

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

lower the signal strength on your sons router so that your computer cannot find it any longer. in addition ensure that you use different ssids for your wlans and configure only yours on your computer.

Not a problem, you have to consider maybe other devices and or networks competing/interferring with your network. If you know how to enter the Linksys router menu I would 1. change the frequency the router operates on 2. change the channel the router will use 3. change the default password to something else besides the default.

All of the settings for your router out of the box are at default, wonder how many other people are running the same thing in your neighborhood? I always change from the default, you may also be receiving interference from devices using the same freq/channel as your router. Changing these will eliminate those possibilities.

Don't forget to encrypt your network, that is most important.

SOURCE: d link dir 615. Weak signal, router is put on main

Try turning the router 90 degrees, and measure the strength.
Turn it another 90 degrees, and measure again.
Repeat.
Repeat.

Move to a house with wood cross-beams, instead of metal cross-beams inside the first-floor ceiling.

Rotate the upstairs computer 90 degrees, and measure again.

Buy a "Wireless N" router, for greater signal strength.

Check the orientation of the antenna. Try to rotate it, and see whether the signal strength varies. If the signal strength is too weak, digital channels will show many problems. Try a signal booster. Contact any service technician. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Rumor reflex signal fades and drops calls too often. Help?


Two possible problems: hardware or carrier. So a few questions:

- Does this happen everywhere, or only certain places?
- Does this happen when the phone is in a strong signal area, moderate strength signal area, or weak signal area?

It is possible that the radio simply isn't powerful or intelligent enough to hang on to a weak signal, or it is possible that you are in a very weak signal area. My first route would be to contact the carrier and ask for a signal check in the area where it happens most often. If the carrier confirms that the signal is good, you either have a defective handset, or a simply poor one.

My mother in law has a 3 mth old panasonic tv with built in freeview that keeps going off saying no signal check ariel. ariel has been checked, any ideas anyone please


access the signal strength in the menus and see how it looks. Too strong a signal can also produce the same problems as a weak signal. If it shows full strength but poor quality then it may be too strong a signal.

Robe again I FIXED ALL PREVIOUS CODES BUT POOR ACCELERATION AND BOGGING DOWN COULD IT BE MAF SENSOR ORCAMSHAFT SYNCRONIZER. OR A BETTER FIX GIVE IT UP TO THE JUNKYARD.


The MAF sensor could do this as well as low fuel pressure, make sure the fuel pressure is at least 42 PSI and goes to about 50 when when you race the engine up for a second, the pressure should never drop. If the MAF is at fault disconnect it, the engine power will return as the computer substitutes a signal for the lost MAF signal, this is called "failure mode strategy"

Valve lifters need resetting


If your engine is 1980 or above, virtually all lifters are hydraulic and are self adjusting. No manual adjustment can be performed. When they get too noisy and a high quality oil change or oil additive will not quiet them, time for a valve job and component replacement. Just a note: poor quality fuel, poor ignition components (worn as to produce weak plug firing) and improper/faulty emissions sensors/devices can cause lifter noise due to misfire, timing advance/decline, and imcomplete combustion. A thorough tune up is always recommended before assuming internal engine parts are bad. If you have a check engine light on, codes there may give a route to a solution as well.....MIke

TV comes on but will not recieve channel. It displays no signal & the code65535. The cable is working here so it is in the TV. It is a 37" dynex flat screen bought 2 yrs plus 4 months.


Hello
Try the resetting the TV. To do this unplug the power chord from power socket, and wait for atleast 45 minute. TV will reset itself. The try to get signals.
If your TV receive poor quality telivision signals, captioning may contain errors, or there might be no captioning at all. Some possible reasons for poor quality are automobile ignition noise, electic motor noise, weak signal reception or multiplex signal reception like ghosts etc.
If reset also didn't help you, the tuner inside your TV is defective, or weak. It should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

This is going to be a setting in your scanner program. The scanner does not have to load in your systray when your computer starts to work. This just makes it respond a couple of seconds quicker, but slows your computer down every time it starts. Never put things in your systray unless you use them constantly. Things by your clock are things that are always running. This slows your computer down.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.
