SOURCE: Laptops stopped connecting wireless

check if you’re computer is properly connected wirelessly to the Linksys router, you will need to perform six steps:

  1. Checking the IP Address of the PC
  2. Checking the Wireless Settings on a Linksys Router
  3. Disabling Computer's Firewall
  4. Disabling Proxy Settings
  5. Pinging the Router
  6. Pinging the Internet
Checking the IP Address of the PC
The IP address of the computer is another indication that the computer is properly connected to the router.

Checking the Wireless Settings on a Linksys Router
The router’s wireless settings should match the wireless settings of the wireless adapter in order for them to communicate.

Disabling Computer Firewall
Make sure that the computer firewall and any third party firewall installed in the computer is disabled. With a firewall enabled on your computer, you may get an invalid IP address. In such cases we have to disable any firewall installed on your PC.

Disabling Proxy Settings
If you have proxy settings, you need to disable these on your computer. If a computer is accompanied by a router, the gateway for the Internet connection, it no longer needs to get any proxy settings to gain access.

NOTE: If you are using Mac to disable the computer's proxy settings.

Pinging the Router
Ping test helps trace the communication between the computer and the router. The computer sends packets to the router and in return the router sends out replies to validate the connection.

Pinging the Internet
Ping test helps trace the communication between the computer, the router and the internet. To check the computer’s connection to the Internet you should get valid replies when you perform a ping test

A new Roku HD does not find any wireless sites but another Roku in the same place finds all sites. Putting the older Roku in the same place works fine and connects to my wireless network without...

No way to fix that sadly, contact Roku and have them replace it for you. If you could fix it, you'd have to open it up which would void most warranties.

Hype optical mouse model no. HY-7005-WMA 2.4GHz isn't working properly, wont connect to any device. How do I get the adapter signal to read on my laptop?

So you're saying you've tried connecting to other devices to no avail?
Might be worth reading the direction carefully. Sometimes there's a reset/rescan button(small) on the mouse that needs to be engaged after everything is plugged in.

Can't connect to internet since purchasing wrt100.

What is your laptop name, model#?
All "wireless" laptops have software that can "scan" for , and "repair" wireless connections. Bottom right corner, do you have a pix [picture] of a monitor ( with what looks like a 'radar' signal coming out ? ) right click mouse and you should see a menu, left mouse click " repair " and follow directions.
that you loose the signal after 3 ft. could suggest that your antenna is not connected right, that the coil ( that makes up the antenna ) is 'opened' or that you did not configure the wireless part of the router.

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network

Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Wireless connection keeps falling

It may be just a problem of the signal bouncing around and your laptop is struggling at times to find the signal. Some earlier laptops don't have a wireless booster built in the screen. Go to your laptops' web site and see if there are any updated drivers for your wireless card. If still unhappy with results purchase a USB wireless dongle and dissable wireless card, it may have a better reception area, or purchase a signal booster that works in conjunction with your wireless router.
