Hello,
Your wireless router is to blame for this one. You need to raise it up as high as you possibly can, and also it needs to be placed in a spot with the least amount of interference or signal blockers in the way such as walls, ceilings, and floors between it and the wireless products requiring it to function! Another possibility is to add to the network another "ACCESS POINT" or wired to wireless router at the highest possible point if you cannot move the 1st router. A totally wireless router will work but it has to have a strong wireless signal (from the 1st router) to work properly.

Good Luck!

Router frequently freezes when using with iPad although router signal is strong.


What about your phone? Does it work for the phone? If not, then you might need to check the internet connection. Sometimes the router shows strong signal but actually not connected to the Internet. If the Internet works for your phone, then check the wifi settings on your iPad. Select another channel if possible. Or reset the wireless setting and try again. If all fails, try to use this iPad on another wifi spot and see whether there is a problem with the wireless card with it.

Signal strength


Check with your service provider. You may be in a fringe area or receiving a poor signal because of interference. If your router has the option to add an external antenna that may solve your problem.

My ipad 2 will connect but the load time is very slow


Your throughput (speed) is limited by the speed of the service from your provider. Additionally, this speed is divided or shared with every device connected via network cable and devices that are connected wirelessly, too.

To make matters worse, while the wireless N standard provides a faster speed, it only does so at a closer distance. When further away from the router, you may actually get better speed by connecting to the G side of the router (assuming you have G enabled).

Proper router configuration is key. Make sure you haven't locked it down to a slow speed. Install additional wireless access points or upgrade antennas with those that offer higher gain to provide good coverage in your home / space. Locate the wireless routers and access points closest to the areas these drevices will likely be used. Avoid installing in basements, behind brick and concrete walls. Aluminum siding can thwart a signal pretty well, too. Unplug / replace cordless phones that run on 2.4GHz - they can rob bandwidth from your router in the form of interference. Select Ch 1, 6 or 11 for the least interference from other wireless devices as long as they are not already in use by someone close by. Protect your WiFi by NOT broadcasting your SSID and be sure to lock it down with WPA or WPA2 security and a password that does not appear in the dictionary. This will help keep others from stealing your WiFi bandwidth.

All of these suggestions will either increase your throughput / speed or provide additional security and prevent others from stealing your bandwidth. I hope they help!

Samsung tab keeps dropping wgt624


You are losing the signal? If you move about the area reception will differ. I'm not sure what your question is? May things will cause a signal loss. The device location, device antenna, interference, Wireless Channel, etc. Is the wireless secured? Change NetGear Channels.

I need to unlock my router


Do laptops pick up the wireless signal and connect to your router? If not maybe you don't have the router configured for wireless.

If other devices such as laptops pick up the wireless router signal then there is no need to go into the router changing things because if you do, the things that work now, might not work.

Can your ipad see the wireless router (SSID) as one of the networks within range? If so, maybe you put the password in wrong. The password is case sensitive (caps and small letters must be exact or it will never connect).

Wireless router slow connection


To ensure that you are getting the most out of your product you should read the official manual. I would keep it away magnets and thick metal. Every wall that your wireless router must go through weakens the signal. Keep your wireless router in an open atmosphere and away from the ground, preferably.

If your signal is still weak you can take the intenna off and place it back on, but in a much tighter and closer fashion. Try unplugging your router, waiting a few moments and then plugging it back in.

Your router should then have a much stronger and much faster signal. If you still are having problems, feel free leave a comment.

Thanks,
