Question about Sony Computers & Internet

1 Answer

How do I get my wireless internet connection to work? I live in a rural area and NETGEAR is the only option with at least 3 bars. Where do I find my network security key? I'm a definite rookie here. Hubby bought it as a wonderful gift but I'm working with zero info here as I have an old Dell desktop. Other than Netgear, any recommendations as to which wireless programs fit a tight budget the best? Thanks.

If you are using a wireless connection you could have a weak signal, move the router or the XBox to get a stronger signal.
You could be getting an interference with other wireless routers/access points in your area. Check the broadcast channels of the various routers/access points in your area and select a channel that is not being used for your wireless router.

Finding a local area connection


Is this a wireless connection?
If yes than most of the times the problem is that the signal is weak, try to put your Router/AP to a better place and see if you can connect, netstumbler can give you a hand in this, not sure if it's working under vista or not, but under xp it's perfect. My experience ist that what you need to have at least is 15 For SNR for your Router from the place where you are trying to connect. If it goes under 10 it will drop you down.
Better SNR means stronger signal and that's all that matters with a simple wireless connection.

Will linskys work in rural areas


Which linksys device? what are you trying to do? Connect it to a DSL use it as a DSL or connect it to some other internet source.
Please be more specific.
But I can say now that if you are able to order Internet service in your area the most any router/modem such as a links will work.
My father lives in a very rual area of south eastern Iowa, he was able to order DSL service through a small company there who provided their own modem, we then connected that modem to a Linksys WAP54G so he can have wireless. Now he is able to surf wirelessly while sitting in the corn field near his house.
