I have a 2Mbs line and we have four laptops in the house. All of them connect but mine seems to get the best signal and the other 3 are having problems with connectivity. I set up the broadband in the house when the router arrived. Is there anything I can do to ensure that everyone has equal access to the broadband. I've been looking at the router settings but cannot seem to nake any headway there.
Thanking you in advance,

Re: Multiple Wireless computers
Make sure you are not using internet connection sharing on your laptop. it will cause problems with the router and will keep the other laptop from connecting because of a dhcp conflict. let me know if that doesnt help. also make sure the other laptops are not using ICS either.

The best way is to get a data cable and connect directly to the laptop. Your laptop should recognize the router and prompt you to make this your wireless device. Once through the setup you can unplug the cable and you should be set for wireless again. The one other thing to check is make sure the wireless button on the computer is on. Mine is on the front but I have seen them all over. Check the latter first.
All the laptops available in market have built in wireless 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth® wireless networking. It means that you can access the internet via Wi-Fi or through Wi-Fi hotspots. In wireless connectivity you do not require the wired connection to access the internet. In home you can connect the laptop via wireless connection using the home networking router available in market. The advantage of wireless connection is that you can use the internet in your home anywhere with in 100 meters of range with proper wireless signals.You will require to get the internet connection from the ISP(Internet Service Provider).

Yes you can have the setup in your workgroup in multiple ways.
Solution1:- The logic will be making your new wireless router to act as a wireless booster which will receive the signal from your old wireless Router and then retransmits the signal.But this needs some extra configuration on your new wireless router
1. You have to select the WDS ( wireless Distribution System) mode in the new wireless router. 2. Set the same SSID on the new wireless router. 3. In the new wireless router config page , search for the wireless signals and select your old router from that list.
The WDS mode tells the new wireless router to send/receive the wireless signal to the old wireless router.
Connect your old wireless router LAN interface to a network switch through a CAT5e UTP cable and the new wireless router to another port of the switch (use a cable which can be extended to the other room where you want the new wireless router to be placed).
Configure the same SSID you have set in the old wireless router.
If you have your router set-up with security enabled, you should try to re-set the router and then go back onto the routers "control panel" and re-setup the security. You can find out the correct way to reset the router and the correct address to enter into the browser to access the routers control panel by going to the router makers website and checking under Support
what you need is what is called a W.E.P.key.you should have this on the bottom of the wireless router.the thing what plugs into the phone line.it must be typed in exactly the same.
best of luck
if you have the wireless turned on move the computer closer to the signal sourse if there is one i am constantly moving mine around to see where the best signal is than i let the compouter recognise it and it will tell u what is in range
laptops have a wide range reciever built around the screen and tend to be far better than a normal usb dongle.
The fact that your pc is downstairs will be effected a lot because the signals from the router will be bouncing around in an area around the antenna and above, signals below will be effected by floors, doors and wall partitions.
Your best solution would be to place the router on a phone line downstairs and see if the signal is increased.
