Go to the router configuration page and under "wireless", set the power level to 10 or the highest it can go. If the maximum is only 4, then contact your provider to get a proper code for the router/modem.

The First thing you might want to try is to brink the computer closer to the router. Next make sure there are no cordless phones that run on the same 2.4 Ghz Frequency. If all else fails, you might want to consider getting a new "G" or "N" Router, both of which will provide stronger signals, longer range, and not encounter interference from other devices around the house

You didn't say what operating system you have but check your Network and Sharing Center in Control panel and turn on the file and printer sharing feature in Windows.
Using Vista, click on Control Panel- Click on Network and Sharing Center-configure settings.
Hope this helps.

Tring to bridge my 2wire


Why do you need to bridge?

Can't you use both devices off the one router?

usually to bridge you would need, effectively , 2 extra access points to set as the bridges, they then connect to the other routers, allowing communication between the 2.

I do know 2wire is slightly different but you would still need something to act as a bridge on the netgear end.

I still don't understand why you need both routers running. Connect both your computers to the same router which has the internet connection.

Hope this helps

Wiring up 2700hg-b wireless router


Hi, you will need a ethernet card in the pc to connect up a wireless router, most dont work with usb,
otherwise you would need a wireless adapter.
once you do get it connected, go into internet explorer and type in the ip adress for the router, will then come up with a menu for you to programme in your broadband details, once you get the router up and going, go into the PS3 settings, network settings, it will pick up the router all you need to do is enter the network key and its all go from there.,
ethernet card should cost you about £10 from any shop
Happy New Year
