Question about Linksys RangePlus WRT100 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Can't connect to internet since purchasing wrt100.

I can connect to the internet with my desktop thru the wrt100. However, when I try to use the wireless connection with my laptop, the laptop tries to connect to the internet, but never does. When I'm less than 3 ft. from the router, my laptop says the signal is low. When I'm more than 3 ft. away, my laptop says no signal. I was told that my laptop is slow because I need drivers. Why didn't the drivers come with the software for the wrt100?

What is your laptop name, model#?
All "wireless" laptops have software that can "scan" for , and "repair" wireless connections. Bottom right corner, do you have a pix [picture] of a monitor ( with what looks like a 'radar' signal coming out ? ) right click mouse and you should see a menu, left mouse click " repair " and follow directions.
that you loose the signal after 3 ft. could suggest that your antenna is not connected right, that the coil ( that makes up the antenna ) is 'opened' or that you did not configure the wireless part of the router.

Why cant i get wifi or wireless internet to work


Bill:
depends on how u r hooked to internet. direct thru cat5 cable to modem, or wirelessly thru router? then, you must make sure that your modem is connected to web? make sure modem is connected; plug in to desktop(off) then turn desktop on; go to start, then control panel, then Network and Internet; find out if you see a connection? if so, then right click on network connection, click on Troubleshoot Issues. this will try to resolve your internet connectivity. if you still cannot get online, call your internet provider for more specific steps in fixing.

Do you have the latest version of wrt? Even if you do, it may have flashed incorrectly. I would try loading it again.

Also verify that your machine can connect via another router. This will help to assign blame to router and you will have fewer issues to workout.

You could also try another software: dd-wrt for the router.

Unless you are purchasing an old desktop PC, I am pretty sure any system you purchase these days (whether it's from Dell or whatever) have atleast an integrated LAN Rj45 connection on the motherboard.

The cheapest computer on dell.com (the Inspiron) has an integrated LAN connection for example.

Hope this helps,
Bill

Option1: Install both USB printers on the desktop computer, and then share them. Your laptops will be able to connect to them, but only when the desktop is turned on.

Option2: Buy a wireless print server, (Available from D-Link, LInksys, HP, etc) and use that to connect your USB printers wirelessly.

If you also want to wirelessly connect the desktop to your network, purchase either a USB, or PCI Wireless NIC for it.
