Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

2 Answers

Cant connect to the router!

I'm using a MSI GX700 Extreme Edition laptop. It clearly states that my network card works with A B G and N. However, when I click on my router network (which emits in N only), I see ''Radio type: 802.11g'' and I am not able to connect to it. Any ideas?

The Wireless N protocol does not support encryption, which includes WEP, WPA and WPA2, unless the router supports "Fast Throughput" this router does not support "Fast Throughput" which means the only way to utilize wireless N is to disable your encryption and run MAC address filtering.

Right click on your wireless connnection and then choose View available wireless networks.
Make sure you are trying to connect to the wireless N router. Default IP for the router should be 192.168.1.1 and pw is admin(linksys). Also, make sure that in your firewall settings that the subnet of 192.168.1.0 is trusted.

My laptop is connecting to wireless but cant find it why


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Apple Macbook Pro does not connect to wireless network


The antennas in the Macbook Pros have had an issue with reception due to the aluminum housing of the laptop but, should still receive decent reception just not as much as a plastic Macbook or plastic PC laptop. It could be possible that the antenna's cables have become disconnected from the Airport Extreme card inside your Macbook Pro, that the card itself is faulty or damaged or that the Antennas themselves have been damaged in some way. As always make sure you have the latest updates and have installed any driver updates from Apple regarding your Airport Extreme card. Here's an article that may help eliminate any wireless interference that may be affecting your signal strength. Apple - Wireless Interference hope this helps, if so don't forget to comment, vote, etc. Thank you.

My wired pc keeps discconecting from internet


Check for wire loose connection and then any time setting for your dhcp connection. If they are ok check your network connectivity do as follows.

Startup
run
type cmd
at the prompt type ping <your router ip address> -t
kepp watching the reply

use your computer as normally and check when it gets disconnect by watching above

may be some corrupted program send packets in an un usual rate (it can be virus/trojan) so the router blocks those port and your computer disconnect from the network.

Rather from all the above change the PCI Network adapter replace with a new network card.

WRT150N Linksys... my laptop will see it as a G signal router, and won't be able to connect.


as you have said, configure your router , in a g standard, so that your laptop can access it, becos, your router is emitting, n signal and youy wireless card is capable of receiving only g signals, so reconfig your router, upgrade the latest firmware in the router and check..
