Please get to the router configuration console (Router GUI on 192.168.1.1) and click wireless => Try changing the channel number and if reboot the router and test for all 11 channels, incase if there is no diffrence please follow the steps below:

Wireless => Advanced wireless Settings => Change the following:
1) Beacon interval = 50 instead of 100
2) Fragmentation Threshold = 2306 instead of 2346
3) RTS Threshold = 2307 instead of 2347

My computer keeps connecting with internet access and then randomly after a while, it just goes back to "limited access" instead of "local and internet". therefore i dont have internet...


Seems that the wireless signal is too weak, or may be you are connecting to a wireless network of a neighbor instead of your own. Check which wireless network is the preferred one & make sure it is yours.

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 w/ window xp. I show my wireless connection on the signal is excellent but when i click internet explorer its says its connect to internet - i dont have working offline clicked...


Try connecting to another wireless connection... if it connects to another connection and you get to the internet, then it is something with your wireless router or modem. Your PC can "see" a wireless connection, so it is NOT PC hardware.

It sounds like you can connect to the router, but cannot go through the router to get to the internet. Probably a simple issue with your modem or router. Try power cycling the modem, and power cycling the router. Then restart your PC and try connecting again.

If all that fails, try installing Mozilla Firefox and see if that will get out to the internet. It may be a problem with Internet Explorer.

I have an HP Laptop LAN connection will not connect to internet


The wireless modem you are connecting to is protected with a WEP key. You have to get the WEP key or find another wifi hotspot that is not protected.

You can also get a better antenna for your laptop to see if you can pull in another site.

My Acer Aspire notebook keeps losing its internet connection. I have used 2 different routers and the signals were strong on both, so it's not that. I've also downloaded what I took to be the appropriate...


If you are using the supplied Acer program to setup your wireless, I would suggest removing the program. In most cases, removing their software does not remove the drivers, and thus, Windows Zero Configuration will take over the wireless.
WZC, in my opinion, works very reliably and has solved this type of issue in the past, although it is not the only reason for disconnects. For instance; a weak signal and a lot of interference from neighboring networks can cause your wireless to become unstable.
If this doesn't fix your connection issue, you may have an issue with the wireless card itself.

Inspiron 6400 detects networks but does not connect to internet


Make sure you are connecting to your own internet connection through your wireless router and not on your neighbor's.....limited connectivity means you are out of reach or signal is blocked....

My neighbor's signal


If your neighbors know that your using their router, you might ask them to reset it. If they moved it, this could cause the weakening of the signal, walls drastically decrease a wireless signal. You might also refresh your wireless card by uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling them.

No internet connection on two desktops


Hi Tony, you think your laptop is connecting to your neighbor's wireless network. So try this.
1:Go to Control Panel, click on network and internet connections, double click NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Point your mouse to the WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS. It should show that you are connected(and it will show the name of the network that you are connected to). If you do not recognize the name of the network that you are connected to then you are connected to your neighbor's network.

IF YOU ARE CONNECTED TO linksys--unsecured wireless network, there is a chance that your wireless router is not functioning at the moment.

Try this first and i will be waiting if you have a follow up problem.


Good Luck

I'm getting a weak signal from my PS3 on my wireless network. My laptop works great on the wireless network. Advice?


Hi Samax,

I have noticed that Routers sometimes give a better signal to my neighbors than it does me in the next room. Try opening your router config screen, and setting its output to a lower DB.

I cannot connect my laptop computor to my main computor


Bluetooth is not WiFi,   they are two seperate technologies.

 

you need a Wireless adapter 802.11b/g for your laptop,

you would connect the two to each other using an adhoc connection,

If you had a wireless router for your internet you could connect directly to the router, (and then you would not have to have your main computer on for you to access the internet.

BTW if your Main machine is near your phone point (for internet connection) you would not need a wireless card for your pc, as you could connect via LAN cable to the wireless router (make sure you get one with lan ports)
