I'm having the same problem...just got a new wireless N router and now my DWL-G510 won't connect. I'm logged into the router and it's set to WPA2 and I have the correct passwords and there is not MAC address filtering enabled. I even tried configuring the PC's IP address manually, and it still wouldn't work. I'm quite confused as to why this won't work, and I think there may be a problem with the router.

    and by "problem with the router" I meant with the wireless card

  • akigandler Feb 06, 2010

    Ah...found it!

    I think that with XP service pack 3, it caused a problem with the wireless card driver.

    I just installed the latest driver, and it connected for me without a problem. Here's a link to the driver:

    Hope this helps!

Have you manually entered the key code? did you add the device to your routers system?

If the device has worked for you in other locations, the most likely answer is that you have low signal strength from your network carrier to your device. To test if low signal strength is the problem, try moving your laptop to another location, closer to the cell tower you think might be servicing you to see if it starts working. If your laptop connect software has the ability to show you the signal strength, look to see how many dBm the signal strength is. The larger the negative number, the worse it it. Below -85 dBM, you will have frequent drop outs.
-75 to -80 dBm should give you usable results. -65 dBM and lower should give you very good results. If you can only find the strength in bars, 1 or 2 bars is bad, 3 bars marginal, 4 & 5 bars useful to good. You can buy repeater devices which pick up cell signals and rebroadcast them, making them stronger for you laptop to pick up the cell signal. They usually have an external antenna port which you can put outside and high to help pull in the signal. Trees, hills, and rain all block and lower the signal strength between you and the cell tower. Distance is also a big factor.

Why is my signal stength very low?

Sounds like you need a new wireless card in the one that shows low signal strength. You can buy a good usb wireless card that gets a great signal for less than $30.00

I have the router right by my PC, it appears connected but no signal strength at all (no bars) what is wrong?

try changing the wireless channel on the router and see if that makes any difference.

Open the setup page of the router.
Go to wireless tan and change the standard channel to 11. save the settings.

You can also try updating the drivers of the wireless adapter on your computer.
If your router is too old then you must upgrade the firmware on the router.
See how to upgrade Linksys router firmware

My wireless adapter says i have a good connection, but when I go to play games online my signal strength changes so much it makes the game glitch

Whats going on is that your signal strength from the router is good but when playing a game the green bars that you see are not that of the signal strength but that of the internet Speed. Seems the signal is there but the internet speed is not I would restart modem and router see if this helps boost speed you can always check speeds at to be sure you are getting what you are paying for.

I only get 1 bar strength . When I'm only 8metres away

(First and foremost, Make sure the firmware is updated, this takes care of alot of router connectivity issues)
1. If you have more than one wireless network to choose from, make sure you're connecting to the one with the Strongest signal.
2. Make sure the security is set up for your router and network. If it's open, anyone can connect and **** up your bandwidth!
3. Depending on what kind of wireless card you are using, G or N. You can set your Router to only transmit G or N. Set it to what kind of wireless card you're using.
4. Using an ethernet cable (RJ45) connect to the router directly and see if you can get online.

If all else fails, you can reset the router and start over to see if that changes the signal strength

Cannot connect to wireless networks, where is

First of all check these are ok: Check your network adapter settings to see if you have your wireless card enabled. If that is ok, see if you can pick up any other wifi access points apart from your own. If you can see others fine, this means your wifi card is working correctly. If you can see your own access point and not connect to it, check the signal strength, items like microwaves and cordless phones can interfere with the signal. If you have a good signal try connecting. If it is asking for a key/password, then you will need to find the authentication key for your wireless access point.
If you cannot see your wifi access point but can see others, then you may have SSID broadcasting disabled, or the wifi might not be functioning correctly. Check these in your access point settings.

> can't access 'net through router

When you "view available networks" on your laptop, do you see the SSID for your router as being present? What's the "signal strength" (poor? none?)

Have you tried powering-off the router, waiting a few seconds, and then powering-on the router, and then retrying on the laptops?

Have you tried an Ethernet cable directly between the network-port on your laptop and one of the LAN ports on the router? That should give you a fast connection, because it is not "wireless".

> cell phones all drop calls

Weird. Did they wrap your entire house in metallic foil, to "block" signals from the cell-phone tower to reach inside your house, to your phones?

If not, why has the signal-strength dropped so much?

What happens if you take your cell phone just outside your home? a few houses away? a few blocks away? a few miles away? Does the signal-strength increase "sharply" at some distance?

With your cell-phone, walk all the way around the outside of your house, to see if there is a "good" side or a "bad" side. Repeat on the inside, and see if you can draw a "map" (4 bars here, 1 bar there).

I only have two bars on my wireless network and would like get a better connection. I would like to surf channels to see if i can get better reception

Try placing the router closer to the center of the house, and in a higher area, and away from cordless phones, and high voltage wiring.
