Question about Gateway M-6340u PC Notebook

1 Answer

I just received new gateway t-6340u notebook, the issue I'm having is when I start my notebook from a shutdown mode the wireless router is located and no problem. But when I command a re-start the wireless router is not found, the only way it finds it is if I turn the wireless switch off for about a minute then switch it back on. Within seconds I'm back on line. Talk to Gateway and we re-installed drivers, no help. Is this a come problem? Also will this cause more problems later. Thanks TC

What you are doing is OK. The problem is when you re-start the wireless card has lost it IP address and when you switch it off and on again the router issues the wireless a new IP address.
You can also get the router to issue a new IP address by right click on the wireless Icom on the Task Bar and left click on Repair.

I cannot connect to my belkin connect n150 router after enabling it as an access point. Green light shows up on router and wireless network shows up but no connection when clicked. I cant connect via


Pretty sure you have to have at least one router in gateway mode to connect to the internet. An AP allows wireless devices to connect to a wired segment. The same as a router in gateway mode. AP mode has the benefit of extending a networks wireless range. If this is your only device leave it in gateway mode.

check if the router is set to connection type as pppoe.
enter your usernaem and password and save the internet light will go on.

if the modem is not in bridge mode then try connecting you pc directly with the modem and check if the internet is working not not. if not contact your isp for settings.
if internet is working fine.
not connect your router to your modem and then your router to your computer.

After shutdown of gateway laptop blue power button stays lit.....


Hi this sounds like your computer is in hibernation mode as opposed to shut down mode. Could you check and see as if running Vista many people assume that clicking on the brown power type selection under start that they are shutting down where as this actually only hibernation mode and clicking on the little arrow to the right of this and selecting shutdown is the way to go.
I hope this helps

My Gateway m-6340u has interference coming through the speakers


The only way i know of would be to take the laptop apart and improve the ground from the motherboard to the chassis, since this is probably where the problem is coming from in the first place.

Start - run - cmd - ipconfig

once you get the default gateway(say for eg., 192.168.2.1)

type the DG in the web browser andcheck for the options!!

Connecting wireless


Based on the category you picked I need to ask if you want to connect a wireless adapter in a computer to the one wireless router you have or do you have such a large area that you need two wireless routers to cover the space. They are two very different issues. Please add a comment to this issue if you really have two routers -- it is a different problem than the one I will describe.

Assuming the picture of the device is right and it is another wireless adapter you need to connect to the router.-- the simple answer is basically the same as the ones before which is probably not helpful now. (Assuming the wireless adapter is installed and the drivers loaded.) Then if you have an secure network (where WEP or WPA was enabled) you probably will need to connect to the specific network using your adapters manufacturer's software or Windows Wireless Zero Configuration where you will probably need to supply a network name (SSID) and the passphrase that was configured inro the router. If you have an unsecured network your adapter may work without configuration. There is one other possible issue -- most routers dynamically assign ip address and other information to the adapters. If your router was not configured to supply all information including DNS addresses we may have some additional configuration to apply to the wireless adapter.

Please respond if these steps are two complex so I can provide additional information. Please provide the manufacturer and model of the wireless router and wireless adapter if that is the case so I can provide more detailed information specific to your hardware.
