Unplug your router and unplug your cable modem,Turn your cable modem back on and wait for the lights to stop flashing.The plug your router back into your cable modem.Once the router lights stop blinking try to connect.If you still have a weak signal call your cable provider and ask them to reboot your cable modem at their end.
There are a few things thatcan 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 thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.
Yes you can definitely use a wireless router to work with your existing wireless modem , so you have an option to connect to the signal of the wireless modem of the wireless router. You can also choose if you like to disable the wireless signal of the mode and just use the signal of the router.
The network appliance you're asking about is a modem with a wireless router built in. Basically, it's an all-in-one device. It will replace your already existing modem. It is a wise upgrade for any AT&T DSL connection.
Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router.
Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.
You can't connect the any antenna you bought to your PC. Normally, any Wireless Boardband router/modem whether it is cable or USB connection, the antenna is usually built-in or with an external appendage sticking out from the Router/modem. You have to check with your ISP whether they have any alternative to boost the signal to your wireless modem.
If they coverage to your area is no good, look for another ISP which have much excellent band coverage.
i believe the simplest way to do this is to buy a external USB wireless adaptor for your computer. thats saying that your dsl modem has a wireless signal being broadcasted already . if you dont have wireless built into your DSL or Cable modem, you will also need a wireless capable router to send it to your computer...
keep in mind that the wireless external network adapter could easily be used with ANY computer to connect wirelessly, so it's not limmitted to just your current hardware.
Basically the modem has to dial in first to give you connection, One end goes to the Phone wall socket and the other end to your computer.
-Now in your case I am sure that your router is a DSL router meaning have no capability of dialing on command from the external modem.
-Nowadays VOIP built in routers are much more capable of dialing numbers directly.
-Old dialing modems should be connected directly from computer to the wall jack (phone lines).
Hope that helped!
