Question about D-Link Dlink DES-3028P Switch 24-port 10/100mbps Poe

Router issues in my apartment.

I have been using my router for 4 years now. I used to live in a house and it worked all around it, upstairs, basement, outside, down the driveway. I moved into an apartment and it worked fine, I was on the 11th floor. We just recently moved into the penthouse, same building. I can get wireless where the router is setup, in the living room, in the room next door and in the kitchen. Once i get to my bedroom, it just doesn't work. I even tried to connect my Wii to the router which is also in my room. We bought a new router, thinking that it was because the one i have is old, but we ran into the same issue. Do you know why this is happening. The distance isn't even that far. What can we do to fix this. Please help.

When to moved into the penthouse, there are more walls between the wireless router and the laptop in the bedroom. The walls are probably reinforced concrete walls which will stop or weaken the radio waves penetrating into different rooms. When you lived in a house this was not a problem.
The only way to solve this problem is to move the wireless router near an opening such as a door and move the laptop as close as possible to the wireless router to get a better signal strength.
The outer way is to install a wireless repeater or connect a long network cable to the router and the laptop.

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.

I keep losing my wireless connection inside my home. My modem is in the basement and I want to use my laptop upstairs. I use an N router and have cable internet. My house is also wired with Cat 5 wiring...


Well , the connection upstairs depends on the capabilities of the router that how much coverage it can give for the wireless clients associated.

Since , it is a N-router so try upgrading the drivers for it , the technical term will be firmware.Upgrade the firmware of the router to the latest one and you might have your issue resolved.

D link dir 615. Weak signal, router is put on main floor,but we are only getting 2 bars on the computer upstairs, and almost no signal in the basement. How can we improve the signal or do we have the wrong...


Try turning the router 90 degrees, and measure the strength.
Turn it another 90 degrees, and measure again.
Repeat.
Repeat.

Move to a house with wood cross-beams, instead of metal cross-beams inside the first-floor ceiling.

Rotate the upstairs computer 90 degrees, and measure again.

Buy a "Wireless N" router, for greater signal strength.

Connecting to wireless from my basement!


you need to add a repeater or signal booster for reciving signal in basement from uper floor.

My expierince is that whatever roueter you buy doenst matter it will not work properly if you are using wirless on 2 diffrent floors. on a same floor it can work smoothly even having walls.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

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.

Xbox Live Connection Interrupted


Ok, all you have to do when it comes to buying a wireless reciever is to buy the microsoft brand one made for xbox live. (100 dollars) Once you have this;
1. turn of the xbox 360 and plug in the adapter.
2.turn on the 360 and go to the network settings option
3. this should bring up a page offering a view of you ip address and ect., go to the bottom link (3rd), and select it.
4. this should give you the option to select your wireless network, then connect to it and test the xbox live connection.
5. Once you pass the test, continue to hit "b" until you are back at the very main menu and begin playing!

Computer can't find router


When I used my first lynksys router on a new computer I had the same issue, what I had to do was move the computer right beside the router so it was able to setup an IP for the computer. Then when it has finished that stage you can power down and move it back. Also placement sometimes has an issue, if you have a basement where you house your router and are trying to get a wireless connection in the upstairs of the house its going to be alot harder. If this dosnt work feel free to ask me again for more solutions.
