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.

    I searched every possible option on the administration web pages, then downloaded the manual and search it as well. There is no visible (or documented) way to change the "transmit power" for the access point. I also looked for anything the seemed like it could be related, with no luck.
    Any additional suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Computer keeps dropping signal and now doesnt recognize signal


how far is your computer to the DSL wireless router? If it is too far and signal becomes to weak you won't be able to connect. And also make sure that there is no metal, concrete wall in between, it will block signal too. Good luck Thanks

I have the DIR-655. Poor coverage/Signal strength


What kind of construction surrounds your router? Weak signal indicates walls reducing signal strength. Try a repeater in weak areas.

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) .
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

Weak signal problem can be fixed by firmware update however, if the client computer is too far from the router, it can't be helped. What you need is a wireless range expander. What it does is give you another 100% signal or atleast stronger signal to the spot or area where you have a weak or dead signal.
