Question about Black Box Media Converter Transceiver

Bought the converter box for my tv ,... only get 2 plus channels

I bought a box for my TV.... It is about 15 years old... Box works great on channel 4. I looked around and realized I should probably have an antennas on my roof. I live in a valley between two hills. I can go to a store and buy the antenna -- but will that resolve my tv problems. ...and then who will put up an antenna?

    I don't understand your problem/question?



    If you’re saying you are getting bad reception? Then yes... getting a new antenna, and getting it as high as possible will help you greatly.



    What is "a box" and "the converter"? Is that a digital to analog converter for the digital conversion of all public TV stations? If so then you would tune your TV to one channel (channel 4 for you apparently) and then you would change the channel on "the box". Kind of like a VCR or A/V to RF modulator.



    I think the reason I'm confused as to what you want is because part of your question is in the heading and it got cut off.

Yes, make sure you get that antenna up as high as you can with masts. Some places will offer installation when you purchase the antenna set up (although it usually is pricey), I know RadioShack will. I might suggest instead of getting a professional installer, post an add on www.craigslist.com, college kids will do nearly anything for a 24 pack of beer or a few dollars for gas!! :-) Good luck!

Connectivity dropping and weak signals on all devices


Hi,
I understand that your router's signal is weak and other connections drop because of that.
To resolve this issue, I would suggest you to change the wireless channel to 1(one). Because, the frequency on Channel 1 will not interfere with other RF frequencies.

Thanks,

Laser writer select 360 to Mac OS X 10.4.11 via AsanteTalk


You should phone the Asante tech support people in San Jose, CA, who will talk you through the fix for free. I lost my printer-MacPro connection, the other day, and everything works fine now, thanks to their advice.

I'm running 10.5.x and no WiFi so the fix may not be the same, but it was just a matter of sort of re-booting the Asante box. Here was my fix, if that helps:
1. Delete that printer from your list of printers in System Preferences.
2. Make sure your computer, printer, and Asante box are all hooked up together and turned on.
3. Click + under the list of printers in System Preferences.
4. Click AppleTalk icon in top row of dialogue box that appears.
5. After a moment, click Bluetooth icon instead.
6. After a moment, unplug the power cord from your Asante box (but not from the electrical outlet).
7. After a moment, re-plug the power cord into your Asante box and, as soon as possible after the "TX" light comes on, click the AppleTalk icon again.
8. Within a few moments, your printer's name should appear. Highlight its name, then make sure all the information about it that appears is correct, then click "Add."
9. Everything should communicate beautifully. I had no further problems.

How do I make it work


It depends on the channels on the walkie talkies.

Can you supply the frz range of the TRC, and walkie talkies make and model and I will try and get the frez on the channels for you.

I can then tell if it will work or not.
