Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I bought an Eee PC yesterday, but cannot connect to the internet. I have wireless broadband at home, & it says the signal strength is 100%, but then the window goes to "pending", & that's all that happens! I took it back to where I bought it from today, & they tried to connect with their wireless broadband, & the same thing happened. Is there a solution?

Wifi keeps disconnecting for no reason


While wireless Internet technology allows us greater mobility in the home and around town, you may also encounter issues with getting a good signal. This common problem has a variety of origins and also depends on your connection method.


Terminology
"Wireless Internet" can refer to two different things: a person using a laptop modem card to communicate over a cell phone network, or an environment where the computers are connecting wirelessly to a nearby high-speed modem. b> Laptop Broadband Networking The user with the laptop modem card can resolve the issue the same way a cell phone user does, since they are connecting to a cell phone network: Find a location where you can get stronger signal strength. b> Mobilizing for Signal Strength b> Terrain can block the laptop user from "seeing" a nearby cell tower, and buildings in an urban environment, like at a coffee shop or at an airport, can cause the same problem. In both cases, seeking higher ground or more a more open area can improve your signal. b> Home Wireless b> In the home, Wi-Fi access is at its strongest when there is not a wall or floor between you and your modem. Sometimes a microwave or cordless phone will also interfere with the signal. b> Drivers and Viruses b> Updating your drivers--packages of software that your computer uses to recognize its hardware--can solve performance glitches. You can also use an anti-virus program to scan for malicious programs that could be interfering. Hope this helps.

CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

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.

How come my sony vaio vgc-rb52 desktop goes on but i get no signal


if you are referring to the signal strength of your wireless internet, first try to turn off both devices your laptop and your wireless modem or router. Now if you have a portable usb broadband connection and the signal is showing weak or no signal at all call your internet provider so they can check if they have any server issues.

Setting up a computer as a wireless internet router


for windows xp you man set up the connection via cable or bluetooth and ms active sync - the htc (windows mobile) is able to use the hosts network connection.
you may also set up an ad-hoc wlan on you eee and turn on internet connection sharing for your mobile broadband connection. if you connect your eee to the ad-hoc wlan it should be able to access the internet

Suggestion: Move your router. Your PC 3 appears to be in a 'dead zone' so to speak.

My Wireless internet card don't work


i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.


Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
