Question about NetGear WGXB102 Wireless Range Extender Kit

1 Answer

Need to protect my wireless network!

Sky is my current Internet Provider but the signal from the provided router was very weak. So I've bought the Netgear WGXB102 adaptor. They've instantly worked but although I have a strong signal in my front room, the Netgear wi-fi connection is not protected. How do I do this?!

You must logon to the NetGear wireless router and setup wireless security. choose a security type usually WEP, type a key phrase or passphrase and voila, you will have to re-connect on your clients by entering the password when you get prompted for it.

Losing network connection


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

You may hear drop outs or poor sound quality in this call. Your Internet connection currently has reliability problems, perhaps due to a weak WiFi signal.


Hi,
If your network provider is providing you enough bandwidth you might need to check the following:
If you are using wifi:
Wifi channel is the optimum one.
You are close enough to the router.
Try with a cable and see if you have same issue.
If you do have the same with the cable, contact your network provider.
Kind regards

How to go wireless on laptop


You need three things
1) An Internet service provider. Once you sign up and agree to pay the fee they will provide the internet service.
2) A wireless router. This is a unit that receives your internet service by through a connection to your telephone line. Then it transmits a radio signal (wireless signal) that your laptop can receive.
3) A Wifi card in your laptop or an external USB Wifi Dongle. This is a radio or wireless receiver that picks up the signal from your router.
The router is usually security protected with a keycode. All you need to do is set up your Wifi card or dongle with the same keycode and you will be able to receive the internet wirelessly.
To check to see whether your laptop has a Wifi card already installed, do the following:
Click Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Network Connections> and look for "Wireless Network Connection." If you have this, then your computer has a Wifi card installed and ready to go.

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

Belkin f5d8631-4 need to connect to sky but cant access config


you need the username and password from provider,then
Connecting to the Internet
  1. Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.
  2. Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
  3. Power down your computer(s).
  4. Plug the power in to your router.
  5. Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet".
  6. Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.
  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1, and press Enter on your keyboard.
  9. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
    To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.
  10. If this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the router's wireless channel and SSID for a description of this process.
  11. Plug the power back into your Internet modem.
  12. Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.
  13. Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.
