Question about Netopia 2247NWG-VGx Wireless Router (2247NWGVGX)

Multiple Wireless computers

Hi, 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, Ciaran

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.

No internet connection?

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.

Connection lost everytime phones on

The phone and the router are using the same wireless channel and/or wireless band. You can access the router console by inputting it's IP address, usually by default, in the address bar. Once there you can change the channel your wireless signal uses to be something different you phone uses.

Broadband router range

If you have wireless N router. You should install wireless N adapter on your children's computers as well. That way, they are compatible with each other coz I guess your children's PC has wireless G adapters. You wont be able to utilize the N signal of the router if your using wireless adapters..
