You can buy a cheap USB wifi adapter and connect the desktop wirelessly just like your laptop, this should do the trick.
or you can buy an access point to extend the range of the wireless network, you should not be moving the router itself this way.

The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Something is blocking wireless signal, i live in flat so in one room there is wireless router and in other room signal is very poor sometimes it's not connecting. i tryed 3 diffrent routers the last one is...


There are several likely causes, if the building has plaster walls it may have metal lath behind it blocking the signal.(this is fairly likely the cause) If there are high-power microwave transmitters within 2 or 3 km, can cause spotty interfering. Neighbors with a wireless router close to your wall can as well.
If you can move the router to a position across from the door between the rooms, you can test by connecting (wireless) your laptop near the router, then walk it into the other room (stay where you can see the router). If the laptop stays connected move across the room to a point where you did not have a signal previously, if you are still connected leave the laptop there and move the router back to its original location and recheck the laptops connection, if it is gone, it is your wall...

Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting


Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:

1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.

2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.

NETGEAR wgr614 cable wireless router


Hello,
have you tried to follow the manual chapter 3, page 3-1 ?
If you lost your manual you can find one here:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/wgr614v6_ref_man_20Apr05.pdf

One of your computers can go online because its using a wired connection to the router, but the wireless clients cannot access the connection - is this right?

Then you only need to setup the wireless part in the router.

Well, any type of streaming video will need a good amount of bandwith to transfer without interuption. If you were, for instance, plugged directly into a cable or DSL modem and it worked fine, and now youve set up a wireless router and moved your computer across the house... it's possibl;e your computer is not getting a good connection. If multiple computers share the same connection through this router then they are all sharing the limited bandwith you get from your ISP. Try (if possible) moving the router (and or cable/dsl modem) closer to your PC and make sure other aren't online when you are.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
