If your signal is low in there the best work around would be to lay a cat-5 cable up to the router, the wired connection would be faster and more reliable then a wireless, or buy another wireless router and put it closer to the basement than the first and wire the 2 routers togher with cat5 using the second router as a fancy switch.

I live in a three story house my wii is in the basement and my wireless router is on the second floor should my wii pick up a signal...i tried to hook up with netflix and my wii says cant find connection


Hi.

1. Try using it upstairs on the 2nd floor and if it works there you know its a range issue with the router.
To then solve it you could run a cable from the router down to the basement (which is a bit old school but very effective and guarenteed to work) or get a second router or modem and place it in the basement. (for modem you would need a phoneline in the basement)

2. If it doesn't work upstairs, make sure you have the correct connection information for your network and that your network is broadcasting its SSID. If your network is not broadcasting it is what is known as hidden. This means that you will have to enter all the network information manually by following the prompts on the wii console.

DGN2000 router problem. I have 2 pc connected on the router and only the main one has access to the internet. Am i doing something wrong with the settings or does my router has a problem? Is it true that...


I'm not aware of any problem with the DGN2000 that only lets you connect 1 computer (If it was I dont think they would sell many and EVERYBODY would know about it)

Anyway - try swapping the network leads over (remember which port is the "live" one) does the other PC now have internet access and the 1st one not?

if the 2nd pc DOES have internet access the yes you have a suspect router.
if the 1st computer DOESN'T have Internet access you have suspect router.

if the 2nd pc DOESN't have internet access but the 1st pc DOES - then the problem is something on the 2nd pc.

Hope this helps.

Laptop wireless computer on 2nd floor. Modem and


To test it whether the signal is too weak or not, take your laptop closer to where the router is and try to connect that way. If it does connect then the wireless signal from the router is too weak in which case get a range expander or purchase a router with extended range.

Ethernet will travel over 2 pairs from the basement to your space that has to be less than 100 feet away. You can run it over flat cable, but not get 100 base T, but it is still going to be as fast and quicker than a wireless bridge and regeneration.

If I understand what you're trying to do, it will acutally take 3 routers or 2 and a wireless access point. The key would be to set up one router as a wireless and the other as a bridge. That gets your ethernet signal to the back of the router. Now, you need a wirelss access point or 3rd router to make it be wireless in your space.

Most modern premisies are wired with 4-pair cable. Even if they didn't make home runs from your space to the basement, there ought to be at least 2 spare pairs in the house cable. Those 2 pairs can feed ethernet to your space where you just have to plug in a router and configure it as an access point, or let it be a wireless router for that matter with or without being a DHCP server. In my wildest dreams, I can't even think of a 5 story structore being more than 150 cable feet away, well withing the 300 feet allowed for ethernet.

Let us know what you finally do.
