Question about Compaq iPAQ Connection Point CP-2W (241274-001) 802.11b Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Weak/No signal My CP works fine as a router, but the wireless signal is intermitten. It's weak when it is recognized by my laptop, but usually drops off after a few minutes. During the time when the signal is weak, I still can't connect to it. I saw in a "Best Solution" that you would post the answer if the problem had not been resolved.

Re: Weak/No signal

Opening your browser. Looking in your manual there is an instruction telling you how to connect directly with your modem. Type that address in, enter the user name and password it tells you. Then look through several of the option tabs it will display. There will be one that controls the "transmit power" level. Once you find it, change it to 100% if it something less than that. That should fix your problem.

Wireless router has weak signal strength. Any way to boost it?

Sounds daft but put it as high as possible and a some cardboard covered in smooth tinfoil in the shape of a semi circle positioned on the far side away from where you want the wi fi to go!

We have a router so that we can have wireless connections in the upstairs of our house. The connection shuts off every 20 min or so. Do you know a solution?

Have you tried moving the computer upstairs to a different place to get the best signal ?
What is the signal strenth?
Have you tried moving the router to a different position?
If your signal strength is quite weak, you may need to get a more powerfull router, like this one
they are about twice as expensive.

Wireless router slow connection

To ensure that you are getting the most out of your product you should read the official manual. I would keep it away magnets and thick metal. Every wall that your wireless router must go through weakens the signal. Keep your wireless router in an open atmosphere and away from the ground, preferably.

If your signal is still weak you can take the intenna off and place it back on, but in a much tighter and closer fashion. Try unplugging your router, waiting a few moments and then plugging it back in.

Your router should then have a much stronger and much faster signal. If you still are having problems, feel free leave a comment.

Laptop drops signal but other doesnt

This issue generally occurs due to the outdated Wireless Driver.

Check for the Updated Wireless Driver for your Computer (in which signal is dropping) and install in the Computer to resolve the issue.

If the Updated Wireless Driver is not available then un-install the Wireless Driver and install it again to resolve the issue.

Good Luck!!!!!!!

Wireless signal keeps dropping/dissapearing

Check my tip
Using Router and Wlan adapter from different brand (Dynex + Belkin) is sometime calling for trouble: you must configure both to be sure to be on same standard (or change Both).
I'm using Netgear + Belkin and tune is not easy
On router config check radio power, reduce the used standard (B/G A/N) to the only one used by Belkin adapter (N).
Be sure you removed Windows zero wireless configuration (= use windows to manage my connection= OFF)
edit your belking wireless networking utility to automatic reconnect:

try downgrading to G standard from router side
Check your network connection plugging your laptop to router via lan cable.and check network params (DHCP DNS etc.).
Then check wlan connection near router, if you experience wlan drops only when far from router, find any possible interferences source (Microwave, cordless, remote) remove it or be ware you cannot have wlan when your wave is working.

No signal

Is the wireless switch of your pC on? if it is, then try to reboot your PC and the router. You should see one. Check also if the SSID broadcast of your router is enabled.
