My connection is bad when playing online on my playstation 3 when my mom is using her laptop and i thought dual band was supposed to put me on a different band for a smooth sailing connection!?


maybe for any online multplayer games I recommend just using an Ethernet cable if possible, let your mom have wireless all to herself on the laptop, any wireless for online multiplayer games just sucks

Hii i have a linksys2.4G broad band router .it


On the back of the router there is a recessed reset button. You need something small like a paper clip to push it. Push and hold it for 15 seconds. This will completely reset the router to factory settings.<br /><br />You will need to use the default password that came with the router to get in. It should be Admin, but refer to the manual for that. You can find it on the linsys website if you don't have yours.<br /><br />When you plug your computer directly into it, you should go to 192.168.10.1 to access the router.<br /><br />You will have to set up all your settings again.<br /><br />If by chance the default network ID was changed, and the reset did not effect it.<br /><br />Basically the fist 3 sets of numbers in the IP address is called the network ID.<br /><br />Plug your computer into the router and start it. When its up got to run, and type CMD and hit enter<br /><br />Then once the command prompt comes up type ipconfig and hit enter<br /><br />Find the line that says IP address. Take the first 3 sets of numbers from your IP address and type them into a browser, and make the last number 1 and it will access the router.<br /><br />

How can i connect the router? i got a intellinet 192.168.1.1 there is one wan and 4 ports are there.i have dialog broad band connection.how can i connect it?or iwant to install any software?


This is very easy to do and you should have no problems doing this. The first step to installing it connecting your router to your broad band router through the wan port. All you do it take your Ethernet cable that went from your broad band router to your computer and attach it to your new routers WAN port. next wile your new router is turned off, turn off your broad band router and then turn it back on wile it is booting up turn on your new router this is not always necessary but it will make sure that they sink together properly. And that's it your done just hook up all of your other computers to the remaining ports and they should work with out a problem.

PS. this is just the basics of setting up your router if it has wireless you may want to think about implementing some security measures such as encryption.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,
Norse

My xbox360 scans and finds router but it will not connect. what is the problem?


Before connecting the X-box or play station or nintendo WII to the network, Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router.
if you don't know the wireless settings , then you will need to open the router set up to find the wireless settings.

Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

Trouble connecting to the internet on X-box ,Play station or WII ?

You can try to reduce the MTU settings on the router. if the MTU on the router is set to 1500 then change the MTU to 1365.
Also you will need to open the ports on the router.
For WII port numbers are ==> 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, 443.
For XBOX port numbers are ==> 53, 80-88, 3074
For Play station port numbers are ==> 80, 443-447 ,5223, 3478-3479, 3658, 10070-10080.




X-BOX

On the x-box you will need to connect to the wireless network now.
Open the main Interface of the X-Box.

1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

Only use one router. At the point of entry of the internet service provider(dsl or cable) connect your wireless router.(prefer middle of house) If you need a repeater for your signal do so but I don't think you will need one with N technology.

Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
