My samsung r519 has stopped connecting to the internet


Does the Laptop say it is connected to your wireless router? If not, connect to your router. Maybe the laptop is continuously polling because you keyed the Wireless Network Key/Password in wrong. If it's wrong, it will never connect.

Try disabling the wireless connection, then enable it and see if it connects and lets you out to the internet.

Make sure you are using the same Authentication (None, WEP, WPA, WPA2) as the laptops that you say work.

Have cisco linkys E3000 and signal is poor from one room to another one. Is there any help to increase power etc. Rgds dodorp43do@yahoo.com


Hi, Some ways to improve signal are:
  1. Place the router in a central location
  2. Place the router on the same floor that it is mainly used
  3. Replace the antenna with a hi-gain version
  4. Replace the network card in your computer with a better model
  5. Change the channel of your router to use a less populated channel
  6. Reduce wireless interference by removing objects on the same band (e.g. most home wireless phone systems work on the same band as wireless routers)
  7. Update your firmware on your router
  8. Update the network driver on your computer
  9. Upgrade the router
  10. Make a parabolic reflector for your router:

I just bought a laptop computer and I already had a desktop. My internet provider is Hugesnet Satelite. I bought a Netgear N600 wireless dual band router thinking I could just hook it up to my desktop...


The HN9000 should have an ethernet port. You will require two ethernet cables to connect the desktop to the router.
1. Connect the ethernet cable from the Modem to the Ethernet Input port on the Router (It is generally placed away from the other ports on the back of the router.) 2. Connect another ethernet cord from one of the output ports on the router to the desktop computer. 3. On the laptop, turn on your wireless card. The process for this differs from computer to computer. If you were to provide the model of laptop, I could provide you specific instructions. 4. The network setup should be complete.
If you need more help, let me know by replying to this solution. Thank you for using FixYa!

Hello, I have a Linksys Router model No. WRT 160N and have problems with the wireless signal. Doesn't appear the wireless symbol ON and I have connected already the modem cable. The modem is OK cuz I can...


* NOTE: If you tried to set-up the WRT-160N Router previously, but failed, with the Router ON, press the "Reset" button on the back panel and hold it down for 10 seconds, then release. This will reset the Router to factory settings and erase all previous data.
Then do this
1. Hook up the Linksys WRT-160N Router to the modem(cable, DSL or satelitte)
2. Hook up the Linksys WRT-160N Router to your computer via a LAN cable with the LAN cable in Port #1 on the Linksys WRT-160N Router.
3. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your web browser.
4. Log-on to the Linksys WRT-160N Router with these log-on credentials:
Username: linksys (lower-case)
Password: admin (lower-case)
5. Click on the "Clone PC MAC Address" tab.
6. Click the "Clone PC MAC Address" button.
7. Click "Save", click "Continue".
8. Click the "Wireless Security" tab.
9. Choose "WPA2 Personal - TKIP/AES" for encrypted security.
10. Enter encryption password (passphrase).
11. Click "Save", click "Continue".
12. Exit the web browser.
13. Disconnect the LAN cable from the computer and Port #1 on the Linksys WRT-160N Router.
In about 5 seconds, your wireless connection should be up and running.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

I'm getting a weak signal from my PS3 on my wireless network. My laptop works great on the wireless network. Advice?


Hi Samax,

I have noticed that Routers sometimes give a better signal to my neighbors than it does me in the next room. Try opening your router config screen, and setting its output to a lower DB.

Actiontec Frequency


You can change the wireless frequency of the router, default is 9, check page 55 of your owner's manual (which is on your installation CD) Are you using the telephone portion of the router? There are NO settings in your wireless router or any consumer router to prevent what you are experiencing. BUT... Approximately 3 ticks a second equates to an 180hz signal. 180hz is a multiple of 60hz which is your powerline frequency. I'm suggesting that it is a noisy power feedback problem, since likely both the wireless router power transformer and the stereo power are on the same circuit. Touching the antenna changes the circuit output impedance which affects the signal. Your solution lies in one of the below, your choice: 1) Buy different speakers 2) Plug router into a different power outlet as far away from the stereo outlet as possible 3) Simply stretch the router as far away from the speakers as possible and live with the faint background ticking. 4) Buy a different router.
