    I have the same problem but that is a feature I want to have. I have turned on the broadcast beacon and employed the WEP-2 Home setting, and my computers see it now but....I'm still having intermittent dropping and linking up to the router problems!

Xpsm1710 (N) same problem finding network when hiding ssid. Even better than WEP WPA encryption (which you should most definitely have) would be not to use :)

This link indicates there may be an issue with hiding the SSID in the wireless router. A security item employed by some users. IF this is the case consider broadcasting the SSID and employing WEP or WPA encryption in the wireless configuration for both the router and the adapter cards to secure the wireless connections..

Wireless Problem

You actually don't want to be right next to the router, depending on the protocol of your route you should be between 10-100 feet away from the router. Certain technologies can degrade your signal. Microwaves, cordless phones, your neighbors wireless.

Ihave an exizting home network with one wireless router and i want to add a second wireless route

Thank you for using FixYa

Yes that is possible but keep in mind that after about 5 computers it may start to slow down the connection, especially if they are all running at the same time. You need to get an ethernet cable and go from one of the available ports on the first router and plug it into the input on the second router and then try it. That is what people do with small networks all the time, so it should work for you.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Jeep cranks but will not start.recently it has done this,but after sitting a few minutes it has started,but now it wont.Ihave tried battery disconnect,security reset,stillwont start.

sounds like you are experiencing electrical problems which have to do with your computer in your car and its ability to send signals all through out the engine. you have a loose connection in one of your wires somewhere possibly in the wiring harness. check that.

Lap top problem

Wireless network adapters require an associated wireless receiver (such as a wireless router or wireless access point) to recieve the radio signals from the adapter and eventually route them to a wire and in you case it would be the wire providing internet services to your desktop computer. If there is no wireless receiver there is no device to convert the radio communications of the wireless adapter and rout those signals to the internet.

I hope this helps.
