Poor signal with WiFi on my zeepad

Having a wireless Internet signal in your home allows multiple devices to use the same Internet connection without having to run lengths of Ethernet cable to each device. Given that the wireless network is transmitted over the air, the consistency of your Internet connection depends on the strength of the wireless signal. If wireless signal strength is not strong enough to give you a consistent Internet connection, there are a few simple steps for finding the problem and improving your signal strength.

Reset all devices. The majority of Internet issues, including poor wireless signal strength, are very often solved by a simple power cycle of all the devices in the network. Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and remove them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug the power to that device). Leave them unplugged for a full 30 seconds, plug them back in and restart your computer. When your computer fully reboots, check your wireless signal strength to see if it has improved. If it has not, further troubleshooting is required. Move your computer closer to your router, or your router closer to your computer. Wireless routers do not have unlimited range. One reason your computer may be getting a weak signal strength from your wireless network could be because your computer is simply outside of the router's range. Typically, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will install your modem in one specific location in the house and the modem will not work at other locations, so moving the modem or modem/router combination may not be a possibility. If this is the case, you may need to move the computer to a location that is within the range of the wireless router's broadcast. If you still get poor signal strength, your router may be experiencing a malfunction. Contact the technical support department of your router manufacturer. Router malfunctions often are not the result of a bad or broken router, but of something much simpler, such as the router's needing a firmware upgrade or an incorrect setting on the router's internal setup. If your router manufacturer is unable to improve your wireless signal strength, it may be time to purchase a new router. Purchase a new router. Wireless routers are priced in part based on how widely their wireless signal broadcasts (in other words, the more expensive the router you buy, the larger a wireless signal the router will broadcast). Included in the packaging of each wireless router is the approximated range, in square footage, of that router's wireless network. A good rule of thumb is to know the square footage of your house and buy a router that can accommodate that square footage. That way, as long as the router is functioning properly, you will have strong wireless signal strength throughout your entire home. Hope this helps.

Can't access the internet,cause of server won't let me connect.

You probably don't have the correct password entered into the wireless network connection. Just obtain the proper password and it should work. Also your computer may not be in range of the wireless router signal you're trying to access. Another possibility is that your wireless card built into the notebook may be faulty. But most likely it's just an incorrect password.

Switching wireless on

Powerup the laptop and wait for the main screen to appear.

Turnon the laptop's Wi-Fi switch, typically located on the left or right edge ofthe laptop near the front of the computer. Look for a small, sliding switch.

Viewthe wireless networks in range of your laptop by double clicking on the Wi-Fiicon in the lower right-hand corner of your laptop screen. The icon resembles acomputer monitor with three curved lines, like radio waves, emanating from theside.

Checkthe list of available wireless networks and select the network with thestrongest signal. The signal strength is represented by several bars next tothe name of each network. The more bars you see, the stronger the signal.Choose a network that you can access---either your own Internet connection athome or the office, or the Wi-Fi wireless network connection available for freein some restaurants, coffee shops, motels and other businesses that offer Wi-Fito their customers.

Selecta wireless network and click the "Connect" button.

Enterthe code for accessing the network if prompted to do so. For example, if youare staying at a motel that offers Wi-Fi access to guests, the code will besupplied to you at check-in, or you can call the front desk to obtain it. Mostsystems require you to enter the code twice.

Waitfor the window to display a message that the Wi-Fi is connected.

Openyour Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

On Dell Inspiron 1501, at college dorm, wireless internet drops

Your initial thoughts are correct, the more people using the connection at the same time the slower the connection becomes.
This a common problem with schools, colleges etc that share the same internet connection.
Your only way around this problem will be to purchase an internet dongle that plug into the USB ports at the side or back of your PC. Other than that your stuck with lagging net services until late at night or early morning.

Wireless connection problem

BT is right, the fault is at your end, because you can connect to the Internet with an ethernet cable.
You have lost your wireless connection with the wireless hub.
This could be low signal strength (especially if the wireless access point is in one part of the house and your laptop is in another room)
OR Your laptop wireless card has lost its wireless access configuration.
Check your laptop wireless configuration, check your signal strength, check your SSID, check your security (WEP or WAP),
Have you got MAC address filtering.
Go to control panel, click on network connections, right click on Wireless Network, Click on repair (might fix your connection problem), Else right click on Status (should give you indication of how your wireless is functioning or not functioning).
Check your TCP/IP settings is set for "Obtain an IP address automatically"
Without more information it is difficult to identify exactly what is wrong with your connection.

Wireless "Gateway"

Well, a gateway is a machine or router or device that your basically give you access to another network in this case the internet. In short a gateway connects you to another network. for example: IP Address Subnet: GATEWAY: If this happens on any and all wireless network then it could be that your card is configured with a static address or your network card is faulty. What are the chances that all the gateways are not working. Go to Network Connections in Control Panel. Right Click on the Wireless Connection then go to properties. Select TCP/IP in the middle, you might need to scroll down. Click on properties. Make sure that both Obtain Automatically boxes are checked. Press ok then. Then close the wireless Properties. Try again! If it was already set to obtain automatically, You card might be bad or you winsock might be corrupted. Try repairing the winsock. If its Xp with Service pack 2 you are using then download install and run this utility If that doesn't remedy the problem, it could be a faulty wireless adapter!
