Check your signal strength. You may not have enough bars. Also check and make sure your signal level on the router is set to the highest setting. If you don't know how to do this let me know.

We have connection but when we put more than one computer online it is as slow as dial up. We are using both PC and Apple laptops one desktop IMac and one laptop MacBook Pro and One PC HP G61-632NR.


This should not be. This router can handle over 151 computer simultaneously. There is a choke point. Turn off you encryption to test this. Make it an open shared network with no encryption authentication. Test it. If it fixes it, use WEP shared encryption Also change you signal channel fro auto to somewhere in the middle of the spectrum...like channel 6 or 7. Also, if there is a cordless phone at 2.4 gigs, near the router, move it somewhere else...this frequency will interfere with it. Mac should not have any problems with its' aircard, so I believe, if all this does not work, that your router is bad<- possible but doesn't happen too much. If you purchase another router and you get sold on the 5 gig spectrum, make sure that the new router is d-link or netgear, and make sure that is is a dual channel 2.4 gig and 5.4 gig. Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate this solution high...thanks.

I have recently purchased the wire/wireless


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

My router is shutting off my internet


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 walls and if possible move the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, 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, ard 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 and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

My wireless has been connecting to a neighbors!!! Help!!


First you'll need to change channel on your wireless router so you can boost more signal (use 1,9, or 11 on channel). Then on your Mac make sure you only have the name of your wireless network set there. Contact your router manufacturer to assist you on how to do that or Mac.

Can not coneect wireless router to ps3


If you received an error code, that's probably an incorrect wireless password. To verify the wireless password, open the router's admin page using IE and look for wireless security. If you are sure about your password, try to change the wireless channel of your router to channel 11 and power cycle your router by turning it off for 30 seconds then turn it back on.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........

There are several ways to boost the signal from your router. One, you could try moving it to a central location of the house..the more walls and obstacles, the worse the signal. Try moving any cordless phones away from due to the wireless phones transmitting on the same frequency causing interference. You could also purchase a repeater from an electronics store..I believe AirLink makes one. These devices intercept the original signal and act as a booster..you would try to center this device in your home as well. You could also purchase a better antenna for your router with a higher gain output. Just some suggestions.

Good Luck
