    Our router has a secure network connection and is only 50 ft from the computer. There is an adapter card in the remote desktop. There are no other wireless devices in the house.

    I saw some info with people having this problem with home XP but ours' is XP Professional. The XP fix referred to disabling the IEEE 802.1X authentication. Their instructions don't match for XP Professional. I hope this info helps.

Hi ddmg46, thank you for using fixya.

here are some questions you may want to fill in so that we will be able to give specific answers:

1. is the wireless adapter in your computer built-in or you purchased and installed it separately.

2. are you using a wireless network utility (mostly used for installed adapters) or are you using the wireless zero config tool on XP ( this is usually the icon on the bottom left of your screen that looks like a computer with waves coming out.)

3. how far is the computer from the router? do you have wireless devices or other electronic devices in between?

generally, you may try to change the channel of your router wherein one of the 11 channels will be most compatible to how your network is setup. you may also try to apply wireless encryption in the network, assuring secure connection.

a common cause of intermittent wireless connection is another network that has the same name as that of your router (mostly happens on neighbors of the same brand) you may change your router's wireless network name or SSID to help resolve the issue.

Hope this helps, should you have other questions please do not hesitate to let us know.

Can't connect through microsoft mn-700 router when hooking up trough cable modem

From your very brief explanation, my first thought is that you may not have the wireless settings set up properly in the wireless router.
You will need to connect first with a lan cat5e or similar type cable to first connect with the router.
If you have already done this, then the problem may be with your network adapter in your computer.

unless I knew more specifics, your problem is to vague to help further.

Keep losing the Signal

This is a fairly simple thing to trouble shoot. If you are losing your wireless signal where your OS tells you that you have been disconnected from the wireless network then there is an issue with your wireless router. If your cable modem drops the data link to your ISP your wireless network will still work 100% fine, however websites will not load, but the router admin page should.

The end all be all way to prove it is not your wireless router is to simply use a network cable for a few days and see if you get the same issues. If it does turn out to be your wireless router there could be an issue with interference and I would recommend trying a different wireless channel.

Ms700 router

Your laptop must be plugged into port 4, correct? Try this (assuming Windows XP): Click Start, then Run. In the box type CMD and click OK. In the black window that comes up type (without the quotes) "IPCONFIG /RELEASE" . Wait for the prompt to come back up then type "IPCONFIG /RENEW". Wait a few seconds. Type "EXIT". Try your Internet again.

Hope this helps!

How to extend the range of my MN-700 Base Station

Hi Entry Level Extenders (or by their real technological name Repeaters) are chipset dependent and therefore guaranteed to work with Hardware of the same Brand. You can try to build your Own Extender. Buy two Access Points (AP) one of them has to be able to be configured as Client. Configure the client AP to communicate to the MN-700 and then plug the second AP to it and configure it as a regular AP. Put the concoction in the middle of the way between the MN-700 and the destination computer. Doing such an arrangement might cost a little more, and be a little bulky. On the other hand it would not cut the bandwidth into Half as Repeaters do. Otherwise may be this can Help. Extending Distance: Wireless Bridging: Wireless Segregation:
