Question about Computers & Internet

I have had 2 Dlink wireless routers in the last 2 months and both have a problem with signal flow. Have to tell Windows to connect in the middle of routine task and causes lag on games. Hard wire is not a problem. Had a Linksys router and not issue with wireless part.

Try changing the transmit channel from channel 6 to channel 10. In most routers for wireless you can enable Qos packeting to improve performance for specific applications. You'll need to review the documentation of your router to see how to do this as it is normally router specific.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your suggestion. I will try it. However, What is Qos packeting? Can't find anything in the manual about it. Dlink DGL-4500"

  • James Young Sep 09, 2009

    QoS packeting is a form or prioritizing traffic through a router. Windows supports this function and it can be turned on from Device Manager. Do a help search in windows on QoS and it should explain how to turn it on. Since it is different in each version of windows it is better for you to get that from your system.

I need to change the channel on my dlink 625 router..can u help?


I presume it's a cordless phone? If so, it's possible that it's interfering with the wireless signal. If that happens you will see the wireless connection being dropped - go into the wifi config utility and check how good the connection is. If this is the case, changing the channel may help. To do that,bring the router over to your PC and connect with an ethernet cable (just in case something goes wrong with the channel change and you lose the wireless signal.).

You need to find the "router homepage" in your web browser. If you don't know what it is, in windows click start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter. In the command screen that pops up type "ipconfig" and press enter. It'll show you a few things. One should say "Default Gateway" followed by numbers.Write those numbers down (probably will be something like 192.168.1.254).

Open your web browser (IE, Firefox etc...) and enter the numbers. This will bring you to the router page. There should be an option like "Wireless" and under there you should see "change channel". It may be in the advanced option window.


IF your computer is NOT dropping the wireless signal when the phone rings, but the internet connection does drop - check the DSL signal light on your dlink. If it is flashing or not on, then the problem is with the DSL filters (small white connectors sent with your modem.). Always ensure any phone on the same line as the DSL is filtered or it will cause the internet connection to drop whenever the phone rings or is picked up.

Experiencing error when connecting to wireless router


I've had this happen before when using a USB wireless device. Is the wireless on your system built in? Or do you connect it to a USB port? The external devices sometimes try to use their own software to configure wireless so you can shut it off and just use the Windows wireless tool. I assume you setup the wireless with a security key and entered that key into your system to try and connect? Let me know if any of that helps and rate the solution if it does!

Connecting Dlink DI-514 with my another 3com router (wireless)


No, the router requires an Ethernet cable be plugged into the back of it to receive its Internet signal.

As far as I'm aware there are no consumer-grade routers that will pick up a wireless signal from another router and use that as the Internet source.

Sorry you didn't get the answer you were after. :-\

D-Link Air DWL 650 connecting to my Dlink router


You need to go into the wireless driver advanced properties and set the SSID, WEP Key, channel and others. Wherever there is an 'auto' option, choose it.

I never got the dlink utility to work. I let windows manage it and change the device settings in advanced props.

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

Verification and signal problems


Hi Sir F,

You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.

A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.

Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
