Question about PC Desktops

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?

Im trying to set up a wireless connection through my laptop with my cricket broadband connection,but every time i put the wpa2 passphrase in it says i have a bad connection,how do u turn off the security...


Hello, Every laptop that have seen usually has a way to view the available wireless networks that are around them, and sometimes they will say whether or not it is security enabled. I would use this program to try to gauge how your wireless system is doing, signal strength wise. Turning off your security won't affect your computer but it will allow anybody within it's range to get a signal for free to the internet and possibly your home network and computers including your files, so it really isn't a good idea to turn it off unless you do it only temporarily to allow yourself to troubleshoot this issue then turn it back on. WPA2 is the best security to use and WEP is the weakest. The strength can be increased by raising the router's antenna, putting the router up as high as it can go in the building, or by moving closer to it. I would try those first before turning off the security. If you insist on turning off the security, you will have to use the users manual either the one that came with it or go to the manufacturer's website to get a copy as there is a lot of ways to do this, and a lot of ways to screw it up too including shutting your self off of the network or internet and not get back on!
Good Luck! Rich L.

You need to use WIFI Modem *** Router to connect your laptop without wire.
This will cover upto 100 feet with good signal strength.

Why does my wifi on my i pod have full signal strength, but then doesnt connect.


Maybe you need to turn on home networking in your desktop pc and allow other devices to connect to the internet through it. If you have not turned on home networking or set up your wireless connection access in your desktop pc then go to the ICON's in the control panel and follow the instructions.

Set up wireless first by going to the control panel and looking for the wireless set up wizard. Then follow the instructions.

Then do the same for home networking. Look for the Home networking Icon in the control panel and choose set up new network and follow the prompts.

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.

My internet speed is slow.I connect it via bluetooth.


Internet broadband connection is much more faster because it is directly connected via physical connection from the modem (typical setup for home use). But now a days wireless internet can now compete with DSL thru a 3G/HSPDA network. In our country we can have a maximum bandwidth of 2.5Mbps using 3G wireless network.

Answer:
Yes you can speed up your connection using your phone as a modem but you need to consider some aspects.
  • your phone is a 3G capable phone
  • you have 3G network signal that an indicator "3G"can be seen next to the signal meter of your phone.
  • your network provider has 3G services.
What happen to you most likely is that your are connected using only a GPRS/EDGE. This is equivalent to a dial-up with maximum of 56kbps transfer rate. There is a great gap between the two if you compare it.

I already tested mine with maximum receive/downlink of 2,501 Kbps. I was really amazed.

Hope this things help you. If it does, please rate me.

I recently purchased a Hawking HSB2 Signal Booster. Two years ago, my son installed a Toshiba Cable modem(PCX2200)and a Belkin Wireless Router(model#F5D7230-4)for Camcast High Speed Internet. The Router...


Booster will only work along with access points in your case the belkin wireless router - you have to connect the device to the router not to the windows xp pc

if you know how to configure and the device are compatiable to each other and allows bridging or can configure as your access point client then you need not wanna to get it connected via wire or T568b standard ethernet cable otherwise you have to connect with this cable will enchance the wireless activity

Wireless signals can go down its strength by any magnetic activity, oscillations such as microwave, powerful steel/metal frames and check your anteena position keep in different direction and check your pc wifi signal strength.

Interlink between your router and booster with utp cables gives you steady flow of data and full band strength.

Aviod using two company devices change the router to Hawking
Thanks Hothawk
