Question about Computers & Internet

Ipad2 dropping connection. I have a Sagemcom 1704 n modem. Laptop and iPhone working great.

Windstream internet provider has been out several times and can't seem to find a problem. I can connect in living room where modem is but if I walk to kitchen or any other room it will drop connection. So I have to stand in front of modem and it will make connection.

    Internet provider is Windstream who have been out several times and can't seem to find a problem with modem. I thought maybe the security needed to be changed to Wpa2. Modem is in living room and I can connect but if I move to kitchen or any other room it will drop. I have to point iPad at modem and it will connect.

If you have dual band,use 2.8 ghz instead of 5.6ghz,or the power adapter to your modem is not giving enough power,also update your ipad by searching for updates

Your internet provider shouldn't matter. Your user name and password are stored in the Wii or whatever you use to connect to your modem. It should connect same as usual.
Good luck.

No internet


I had exactly the same problem with my EnGenius ENS202EXT. I was trying to set up an Access Point, hard wired to a FAST1704N V1.0 Router/Modem from Windstream communications.

I spent 2 days trying/altering as many different combination settings as possible, on the Engenius. It turned out in the end that I had alter an unnecessary setting in the Fast1704 modem/router. After I reset the modem to factory settings everything worked beautifully. I have great coverage and higher speeds than I ever had before.

Note: in addition to the fact that internet would not pass through to the Access Point I was trying to set up, neither would the FAST1704N V1. show up on the internal network. I could not find or communicate to the FAST1704N V1. through my own network until I reset my modem/router. After resetting the modem and getting internet through the AP, I went back an readjusted the critical settings in the modem. Everything working great.

Tenda router input eror


It's not the username and password from your ISP. If you try to access your router and you have not changed anything, use the following values:
username = admin
password = admin

Once in the router interface, you will have to configure the router for your DSL-modem (I guess it's DSL since Windstream does not produce cable modems.)
Here fill in the username and password your ISP provided you with.

Let me know if you have any questions.

My laptop and my iphone indicate that my wireless-g broadband router is putting out a wireless signal; but neither accessory works on the network, even though the bars are entirely full on the devices.


The bars on your laptop or iPhone means that you are connected to the router! Not necessarily to internet. Your internet depends on ISP Internet service provider and modem which connected to your router. To check if you have active internet connection connect your laptop directly to modem provided by your ISP with ethernet cable and try to open a internet browser IE or Safari or Chrome or Firefox and open a webpage! If you are able to connect internet by this mean you have internet connection active. Now disconnect your lap top from modem and connect modem to your Linksys router using WAN port of LINKSYS! Its good to power off and power on (power cycle) once on modem and router to make it work!
good luck!
