Disconnect from time to time


Download an app called Wifi Analyzer (by farproc).
It shows the Wi-Fi channels around you and helps you to find a less crowded channel for your wireless router. If there are a number of users with channels near your one, simply switch (using your desktop or laptop) and find a less-crowded channel.

Your manual should show you how to do this. Normally you key in something like ... 192.168.1.1 in your browser bar.

Best of luck

Dynex DX-E102 PCI co/100Mb Network Adaptor provides really slow connection to my Dell Dimension 8200 PC. How can I speed it up?


speed is a function of line of sight distance so measure distance from wireless router for pc and then open that utililty on pc and see what relative speed is happening

if the signal is less than 3 bars, that is like a wireless tach

need at least 3 to 5 bars to get speed

also, your pc has a network adapter card no doubt might be that it's running a full tilt and needs an upgrade

let me know what you find

Restar


If by resetting you mean the wireless connection keeps dropping and reestablishing then you must likely have poor signal strength to the wireless router. The strength of the wireless signal can be greatly diminished by walls and other objects in the way of the wireless router. Best advice if your fairly close (less than 20 ft) from the router would be to invest in a wireless N router, you will get a much better signal.

Will Dell Inspiron laptops pick up 802.11 wireless network?


I'd get the N-wireless card. It makes your signal much stronger, you pick up more signals, and you have less interruption. You won't get to see the full benefits without an N wireless router, but you will still notice an increase with a G router. I have an N wireless USB adapter hooked up to my desktop right now and I get 1-2 extra bars than I do with my laptop in the same spot (which has a G wireless card).

Do i have to purchase a Wire-less Network Card in order to use a wire-less connection?


if you really want to create your own wireless network, first of all you need to make sure that you have a wireless Broad band router and for your computer to wirelessly you need a wireless adapter that will be the receiver of the wireless signal from your router....

Belkin Modem Router not connecting to desktop


The wireless security on your router might be enabled.

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type "192.168.2.1". Then press the "Enter" key.

2. It will prompt for a password to access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. By default the password is blank.

3. Go to Security, then Wireless.
- Check the wireless security settings, this should match the settings on your wireless computer.

4. On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Your laptop has the old password for your wireless router stored in it...it will depend on your version of windows as to how you can delete the old settings...usually you can right click on the wireless network icon on the bottom right of your task bar to view available wireless networks and go from there...if may be able to select "repair" there and enter the new password for the wireless router

No connection to desktop, but great connection to laptop???


Hi Lindsay,

The very first thing that you need to do is to personalize the wireless settings of your ultra range plus router. Since your laptop is wired directlty to the router and is working properly, you can access the router's GUI to personalize the wireless settings. Open internet explorer on the working computer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar, you will be prompted to enter a username and password, by default there is no username and the password is "admin" if you have setup a password using the setup cd then use that one.
Now your inside the setup page of your wireless router, look for the tab the say's Wireless and below you will find four sub menu namely; Basic Wireless Settings, Wireless Security, Wireless Mac Address and Advance Wireless Settings.
Under Basic wireless settings change the Wireless Network Name(SSID) to something you prefer(this is a must).
For the Radio Band, set to Wide 40Mhz. Wide Channel(9), Standard Channel(11) now click on "Save Settings".
Now got to Wireless Security and for the Mode choose(WPA Personal/PSK Personal) Enter a 8 or more digit password under passphrase and click "Save Settings".

Now your done setting up your wireless router it's now time to connect your desktop wirelessly.

If your using a linksys wireless usb network adapter more or less you have also installed the WLAN Uiltility but personally I use the built in WLAN of XP and Vista.

Using the linksys WLAN Utility for to the Profiles tab and highlight default.
Click Edit and it will provide a list of available network(SSID) that your computer detects.
Select the name(SSID) that you provided the router earlier and click connect.
It will not prompt you to enter the WPA Key also known as passphrase(remember the 8 or more digit password) then click Connect to the Network.

You should now have a valid internet connection wirelessly on your desktop.

Oh and for your 2nd question the answer is No, since you already purchased and installed a wireless usb network adapter for the desktop computer you don't need to purchase a long ethernet cable or move the desktop to where the route is.


Hope this will help you get connected.

Regards
