Ive had a similar problem and it was due to windows and the software for the router both trying to run the network and was causing problems.Perhaps check and see if there are two programs running.

Other than that perhaps you could return that router if you can and stick with linksys or netgear.

Question :
Does it cut out the same no matter how close you sit to the router ?

    That's what I meant by two programs running, perhaps you ran windows wireless network wizard, and installed the software that came with the router and is also trying to manage your wireless network.
    1. Try un-installing any software for your router and rebooting then reinstalling drivers only for the router no network management software.

Can i put a Internet dongle on my home PC and connect to the Internet i don't have a bt line.


If you have a wireless router then yes you can use a wifi dongle. The only reason BT users can is that BT comes with a free wireless router (bt homehub) Max

How to configure wireless internet connection in windows xp


You need to set up the router first and know the name of the router: Also called The SSID.

Example: FIXYA'S ROUTER is a name for a router written by the router's owner and not the manufacturer. NEVER leave the default name (example: lynksys, Netgear, etc) because then everyone would get into your private wirless connection.

Once you set up the secuirty and name (SSID), turn on your laptop.

1) open contol panel and open NETWORK CONNECTIONS
2) right click on the wireless network connection icon
3) using the drop down menu from right clicking, click on PROPERTIES

A window called WIRELSS NTWORK CONNECTION PROPBERTIES will come oup

4) On the top Tabs ( labeled "General, Wireless Networks, and Advance) click on WIRELESS NETWORKS.
5) CLICK on the big button called VIEW WIRELESS NETWORKS

A new window will come up called WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION

A list of other wireless routers should show up under the words CHOOSE A WIRELESS NETWORK

6) Rememeber the name you typed out for your router in the begining? LOOK AND CLICK ON the name you gave your router (eg: Fixya Router)

If you set a pasword or Wep key for connecting to your router type it in after you click and press ok. If you ddnt set a password or wep key, just click on the nam o router and click ok

You should then see if you could get on the web by opening your intenet explorer. If you followed the instructions well, you will be able to get on the internet.

PLEASE SAVE YOUR SSID (OR ROUTER NAME ) AND PASWORD OR WEP KEY IN A SAFE BUT OBTAINABLE PLACE.

Hope this helps :)

Toshiba equium A210-17i wireles problems


Hi,
It doesnt sound like a problem with you laptop, rather its most likely to be the router.
People can edit the settings so that only their IP adress can connect.
If you can connect with limited connectivity, again its the router, not connecting properly.
Can you connect to any router? i take it you're not connection to your own XD

Can't connect to internet thru wireless router


You need to have an Internet Service Provider. You connect the router to a modem from the cable Service Provider or through the phone line for BT. Then you can connect wired or wirelessly to internet through the router.

I am connected to the internet and on msn but when i try to go on a web page it says internet explorer cannot display the webpage.


This could be only one of two things:

1) Your internet is OK, but the page you are trying to access
is bad

2) Your internet is not connected, but Internet Explorer is loading
MSN from an old cache on your hard drive.

If a single page is bad but you Internet is connection is OK,
then you should be able to get most other pages.
Try:
www.google.com
www.wikipedia.org
www.yahoo.com
www.ebay.com
www.microsoft.com
etc...

If, on the other hand you get nothing but MSN,
you have no internet connection !

===============================

To test it out:

Go to the DOS(like) command prompt, by clicking:

START => All Programs => Accessories => Command Prompt.

At the command prompt type: ipconfig /all

Look at the report, find the network adapter you are using
(if you have more than one, e.g. LAN and wireless)

and look for the value of the "IP Address"

This should reflect the address assigned by your Internet
provider, or the address of you personal router if you have
one:

=============================================
A typical router address = 192.168.1.1, for example
A direct connection could be = 24. 153.14.1 or any other #

BUT

if the IP address is all zeros = 0.0.0.0

then you have no connection to the Internet.
=====================================
If you have no connection (0.0.0.0) then type:

ipconfig / release
ipconfig / renew
ip config / all

If this does not fix the problem, i.e. return a non-zero
IP address,

Run the network setup wizard from the control panel to
repair your network settings.

Also reset your external router (turn it on and off)
if you are using one, and check with your IP provider
to make sure that your account is still valid.
(They will disconnect you if you owe them money
or if they have made a clerical error)

====
If you do have a non-zero IP address, but your
WEB browser still does not connect,

type at the command prompt:

1) Ping www.google.com
2) Ping 72.14.205.104

Compare the results.

If the first PING does not work, but the second one does,
then your address for the DNS (domain name server)
is not setup correctly. You can reach Google directly,
but you have a problem resolving the GOOGLE name to
its binary address, which is what a DNS does, but you
are not reaching the DNS server.

At this point you may want to contact your IP service
provider (tech support line) and he will walk you through
repairing your Internet connection, or send out a tech
in the case of a hardware problem.

Hope this helps,
please rate my answers,
