1. did you first try to connect to the router via wire directly with it in the same room? then set up the wireless to work in the same room too.

2. once you've done that and it worked then move it to your bedroom. If it doesn't work there it could be that there is something inbetween the two rooms that is blocking the signal...ie a furnace can do that

3. if it won't work try relocating the router to another location. Try a different location in the same room first

but as i said , first get it set up and running in the same room so you know for sure it works.

Internet connection failed


Well the first thing to do is try to isolate the problem. Before we start make sure the 1st PC will give the same network cable unplugged error if it too is unplugged. Once that is done start by unplugging the network cables from the PCs and switch them. Does the problem stay with the 2nd PC or does it move to the 1st? If it stays with the 2nd PC then the problem is with the PC network card or more likely its configuration. The network card should be configured exactly as the 1st one, probably to obtain the IP and DNS addresses automatically. If you need help with this let us know the operating system you are using. If the problem moves to the 1st PC that indicates the problem is with the cable and/or the router. Now switch the cables at the router end, if the problem stays on the 1st PC then that network cable is your problem. It could be a ?cross-over cable or simply damaged. If it doesn?t move then the problem would be in your router. Either that router port is bad (try using another port) or the one port that works is configured uniquely. You?ll need to take a look at how your router ports are configured and look for the differences. Let us know what you find and we?ll go from there.

When I connect my modem to my router, I am unable to access the internet. When the modem is connected directly to the computer, the internet works fine. How can I fix this so I can use my wireless router...


Some Internet Service Providers limit the number of computers that connect to the modem, namely to just ONE. This limiting can be done either "inside" the cable-modem (turn it off to reset the counter to zero) or by the I.S.P. by using a unique identifier,
namely the 'MAC-address' of the network-interface (the router has one MAC-address, and your computer has a different MAC-address).

Contact your ISP, and get Technical Support from them, i.e., disconnect your computer from the modem, connect the router to the modem, and your computer to the router, and get them to "authorize" the MAC-address of the router to get Internet access.

Moved the router to a different room and now it wont work


check the physical connection to the router. Make sure that the modem and computer are connected properly and there is no loose connection.
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.

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Hi,

If you want to upgrade the firmware on the router then please do it on a hardwired windows computer. Firmware wont upload on the router through a MAC computer. I would suggest you to follow the steps below to configure settings on the router:

Scan for the wireless network on the wireless enabled computers and connect to the network.

Hope, this helps.

Set up


You have to install a wireless network card in your main PC, and then you can put the router anywhere that you want it.

Moving desktop across room where there is no cable connection.


you can buy a cheap USB wifi adapter and connect the desktop wirelessly just like your laptop, this should do the trick.
or you can buy an access point to extend the range of the wireless network, you should not be moving the router itself this way.

Well, any type of streaming video will need a good amount of bandwith to transfer without interuption. If you were, for instance, plugged directly into a cable or DSL modem and it worked fine, and now youve set up a wireless router and moved your computer across the house... it's possibl;e your computer is not getting a good connection. If multiple computers share the same connection through this router then they are all sharing the limited bandwith you get from your ISP. Try (if possible) moving the router (and or cable/dsl modem) closer to your PC and make sure other aren't online when you are.

Sounds like you might be accidentally connecting to a neighbour's network instead of your own. You need to go into your wireless settings on each laptop and tell them to connect to your own network.
