Question about Computers & Internet

Wireless Internet stability

I have a desk top ASUS that is connected to a wireless network connection (2) with Belkin PCI wireless N adapter and I am having problems keeping a constant connection to the internet. Together we have a pc connected directly to the router and two wireless cpu's. My son helps me with this and he guesses that the IP# on my computer tries to copy his PC IP# which is connected directly to the router. Every once in a while, I do not get any wireless signal connection on just my computer and my son will do a DNS Flush and DNS Renew, it will work for a few days and then again cease to function. What is the real issue? and what i can i do to permanently fix the issue?

He is on the right tack only the command is ipconfig /release and renew. DNS flush is for domain name, and most homes only connect via IP.

    Tried that as well but its only a short term solution, What is the real issue and are there any permanent solutions?

    As you mentioned the issue is IP conflict. This is caused when a Dynamic IP get re-assigned after a node has been shut off or restarted. Setting a Static IP will resolve this, but entails manual config on all items connected. Try this. *On Belkin web admin check LAN Settings > Lease Time. Make sure it is set for "Forever". Best of luck.

Does your connection "drop" on other wireless networks?

Hello,

If wireless adapter on the laptop is fairly old, you may need to update the drivers for the wireless adapter. Some older wireless adapters are not capable of properly communicating with WPA devices. Typically a driver update of the laptop resolves the issue. If not, try another wifi adapter and verify it is not the OS or laptop itself.

Good Luck.

One additional thing to the above, in the Internet Options Dialogue box.

Press sequence Alt, T, O to open Internet Options.
On the "Connections" tab, press "LAN Settings" button there.

On the box that pops up, be shure the checkbox is checked beside, "Automatically Detect Settings"

Have you got two wireless icons down on the right by the clock. As it may be using the belkin wireless manager to control the device rather than the windows version.

Use the Ethernet cable to verify the router or modem is working and connects to the Internet. If so, then check your wireless adapter in the desk top through device manager - it should detect the Belkin. Also, verify you are entering the correct WEP keys to access the wireless connection to the router or modem - sometimes it gets typed in wrong.

My computer crashed and i restored it. I cannot access the internet. I have a Belkin 802.11g wireless PCI Adapter and the software for the adapter is on my computer but I can't adjust any of the settings...


Please go to command promplt and type ipconfig. You should be getting an ip address as 192.168.1.x and Default Gateway 192.168.1.1 .
Try to ping 192.168.1.1 from your command prompt
If you are getting responce means you are connected to the Belkin wireless Router.
If not then try power cycling the Belkin router once.
If that also not working then you may have to go for a driver update.

Dont have a wireless card on one of my desk tops can i get the net with a usb stick


You can install a PCI wireless card in the desktop computer or you can use an USB wireless device. Both of these devices can connect to your wireless router, but they need to be configured with the router's wireless settings.
If you do not have a wireless router, then you can get an USB wireless modem device that connects to the Internet that uses the 3G mobile network. The advantage of this, you can connect to the Internet anywhere you get mobile coverage with that Internet Service provider.

First make sure you have the correct drivers installed, go to the Belkin website to get the latest drivers for your device.

Next make sure that your router is set to broadcast, and that is in Wireless G mode. You can find that information at the router manufacturers website.

D-Link wireless router and Belkin Wireless G USB Network adapter


Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
