What you have is the equivalent of a wireless modem and wifi hotspot combined. You still have to go thru a setup procedure with each device you want to connect to it. It should have come with a usb cable that will let you connect the wireless modem directly into the usb port of your computer. This way you can verify that the wireless modem is working and that you can use it to connect to the internet. Once you get it to connect thru your computer then the rest should be fairly simple. Follow the set up instructions that should have come with it to set up wifi connects between each device and the modem. Usually you will be required to use a password that comes with the modem as you do the setup for each device. If you still don't have any luck then try taking it back to the Cricket store and have then try to connect to it thru wifi from one of their cell phone. They should also be able to walk you thru the setup procedure.

SOURCE: my netgear rangemax does not emit a steady wifi

Intermittent wireless connection can be caused by different factors, such as:

1. Wireless interference within the network. For best results, place your router:
- near the center of the area in which your computers will operate.
- in an elevated location such as a high shelf where the wirelessly connected computers have line-of-sight access (even if through walls).
- away from sources of interference, such as microwaves, and 2.4 GHz cordless phones.
- away from large metal surfaces.

2. Wireless settings on the router are still set to default. This may cause conflict with other Netgear routers within your network range.
- change the router's SSID or wireless network name.
- change the router's channel.
- enable wireless security on the router.

3. If the wireless connection is still unstable after performing the steps above, it is possible that the firmware is corrupted. Upgrade the router's firmware.

I have just got in broadband but my xbox aint picking up my wireless signal upstairs,ive got the wireless adapter for the xbox,its picking up a few neighbours network connections,surely my xbox should be...


It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

Perhaps try another wireless connection network. (testing whether the phones wireless actually works) When you use the Internet on your iPhone does the 3G symbol show? Or the wireless symbol? And does the webpage load?

The apple appears on the screen and never goes away. 3GS


Turn the iphone off, hold the menu button, now plug in the usb cord that is connected to the computer. Keep holding the menu button until a dock connector appears on the screen. You're now in recovery mode and should be able to restore your iPhone. If that doesn't work you may have a broken logic board. Here is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPhone. Boards are easily available on Ebay2_bing.gif. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair

TV wont detect HDMI Devices except a pc.


Something is wrong whith the HDMI jack it's self, or the electronic switching is not sensing a signal is present. In either case the board that has the HDMI jack you are using needs to be replaced. Most all these boards are double printed, Multi-layered or both which prevents replacing the jack it's self. I do have a question though, do you only have on HDMI jack on the unit or do you have another one available.

Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps
