How to extend range


Difficult one to answer. You cannot adjust anything internal to the router to extend the wireless broadcast range. however, there are a few things you can try to make the most of the range it has. Internal walls and furnishings all play a part in reducing the effective range of the router. The model you specify has the 3x3 MIMO antenna array so should give you a decent range, at least 50 metres indoors. Keep the router as high and as far away from walls as you can, this will greatly improve the range. try to ensure the router is not screened by large near by metal objects such as steel PC cases, these will absorb wireless signals and reduce the range.

My toshiba satellite laptop won't connect wirelessly to Bigpond home network gateway. Bigpond reckon it's a toshiba problem


As a general test, see if you can ping the "router's configuration URL IP address". To do that go to a command prompt(DOS Prompt) and type in ping and the routers IP. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the router. Next try PINGing to www.yahoo.com or www.google.com. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the Internet. If not try sending a ping to their IP(the numbered) address. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the Internet, but you have a DNS issue. Big Pond can help you with that.

I lose the WiFi connected BR 590CW printer


The disconnect-problem was caused by the settings of the WiFi-router.
The settings are:
Capture(wlanadv.beacon) Beacon Interval: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 100, Capture(hwlad2.milli) Milliseconds, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 1 - 65535) Capture(wlanadv.dtim) DTIM Interval: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 1, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 1 - 255) Capture(hwlad2.frathrh) Fragmentation Threshold: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 2346, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 256 - 2346) Capture(wlanadv.rts) RTS Threshold: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 2347, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 0 - 2347)
This gives an optimal performance of the router, The default setting work fine for the printer, but gives less performance.
I now use a seperate wifi-router for the printer.
All is fine now.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop model L25 I have a ativa router. problem is as long as i am near the router my internet connection works but if i go elsewhere in my house the internect connection don't...


Ok. Let me explain something: Not all wireless connections are equal, there are different technologies underneath the routers. It is listed as C, G, and N. Being the C the older and more limited of the trio. C has a span of about 100 feet WITHOUT walls. G has medium range, and N has a 500 feet range,and can pass through walls. You can mix and match between the three with mixed results. Let us assume your router is G, and your laptop card is C; then your laptop is limited on "calling home" to the router. Try to match your laptop card with the router, or you can even go further and go for the N card, so it can "phone home" to the router at a larger distance.

WE have sattelite internet How do I connect a router using this?


hi gusbarb, thank you for using fixya. In using your linksys router on a satellite network, it is much like using it on a non-pppoe dsl connection.

the router uses 192.168.1.1 IP address and it may have the same range as that of the satellite connection. TO have the conflict resolved please log-in to the router's GUI then on the first page of the settings, change the local IP address to 10.10.10.1.

once this is done, you may also enable the router's MAC cloning. this feature is used by the router to fake a modem (satellite) to think that it is a computer connecting to it and not a router.

you may refer to this link to change the IP address as well as the MAC Cloning.

Routers


There are a lot of different ways you can go. you can get a wwireless router, or you can get a wired router and a seperate wireless gaetway device and cable it to the router. That would enable you to put it someplace centrally located. you could also get a wireless capable router AND a wireless acces point and combine them to double your coverage area.

I all depends upon what you need it to do and what is more important to you.
