I have to get hooked to the internet to get my channel changed about every 48 hours. i have used every channel at least once. but, my signal strength is always excellent.


On your desktop PC, connected to the router via an Ethernet cable, open your internet browser (Internet Explorer?) and type in 192.168.2.1 into the address field.
That will open the router's configuration page for you.

Click Login, Submit {should not related to your problem but if you have left the default password as blank, don't; set one of your own up a.s.a.p.)

On the left hand panel under the "Wireless" section;

should be an entry for "Channel"; if this is set to Auto, leave it as it means the router can change channels automatically.
If not, it should allow you to select Channel numbers 1 - 13 inclusive; choose one.

there should also be a field called "Protected Mode"; set that to "On".

hope this will help

The new router could very well be causing wireless interference. Try moving the router away or turning it off and see if the mouse works. If it does, try changing the channel number on the router to see if that is causing the problem as it's possible both the mouse and router are using the same wireless channel and clashing. You can usually find the channel option in the Wireless Settings page of your router setup web interface.

We setup a router and our wireless signal is very weak how can we fix that


Well there's several options:

1. Change the channel on your router, as there may be a lot of interference on that channel, from other networks or devices in the area.
2. Move your router closer to the computer or vice versa.
3. Get a range extender and set it up in between the router and where the computer in question is.

You may also be able to get antennas that increase the range. Also if your router is wireless G, then you could get a wireless N router, as it has a larger range.

Hope this helped.

Cant conect to internet


  • Wii Error Code 51300 - 51399
  • This error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point.

    To solve this error : 

    Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

    If your router is using WEP encryption
  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.

    If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with : 
    WPA - PSK(TKIP)
    WPA - PSK(AES)
    WPA2 - PSK(AES)

    If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings

I have a usb100 wireless adapter on 2.4 frew my cellphone are on


Hi!

This is a classic interference problem for wireless routers and adapters (specially if both your phone, wireless router and adapters are on the same frequency - say 2.4Ghz).

What we can try first is to change the channel on your wireless router. If you can specify the model/brand of your router I will be able to give you the specific steps in changing the wireless channel.

Second solution would be to move the wireless router and the base station of your cordless phone away from each other.

Third solution would be to replace the cordless phone with a unit that uses a different frequency (say a 5Ghz phone).

Regarding your USB wireless adapter, well it's just a receiver of a signal and there is nothing we can change on that device to resolve the problem. This is a problem between your wireless router and your cordless phone.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Rating: 85%, 88 votes hi,
Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
1. the Home Page is displayed. Click Wireless from the left menu
2.The settings to Wireless section of Router appear.Click Channel and SSID.
3.Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID is used. The SSID is your network name. The default network name of the Router is Belkin N1 Wireless followed by six digits that are unique to your Router. Your network name will look something like Belkin_N1_Wireless_123456.
You can change this to anything you choose, or you can leave it unchanged. Keep in mind, if you decide to change your wireless network name, and there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network name needs to be different from other wireless networks that may be operating in your area. To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field and click Apply Changes.
The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.
4.Changing the Wireless Channel
There are a number of operating channels from which you can choose—in the United States, there are 11 and in the United Kingdom (and most of Europe), there are 13.
In a small number of other countries, there are other channel requirements. Your Router is configured to operate on the proper channels for the country in which you reside. The channel can be changed if needed. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks.
Select channel from Wireless Channel drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.
5.Using the Wireless Mode Switch
This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless modes. There are several modes. Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled.
1) 802.11g only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
2) 802.11g & 802.11b
Setting the Router to this mode will let 802.11g- and 802.11b-compliant devices to join the network.
3) 802.11n & 802.11g
Setting the Router to this mode will allow N1/draft 802.11n- and 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
4) 802.11n only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only N1/draft 802.11n-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out 802.11g and 802.11b devices.
5) Off
This mode will turn OFF the Router’s access point, so no wireless devices can join the network. Turning off the wireless function of your Router is a great way to secure your network when you are away from home for a long period of time, or don’t want to use the wireless feature of the Router at a certain time.
Select wireless mode from Wireless Mode drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.
6. Using the Broadcast SSID Feature
Note: This advanced feature should be employed by advanced users only. For security, you can choose not to broadcast your network’s SSID. Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the check mark from the box next to Broadcast SSID, and then click Apply Changes.
The change is immediate. Each computer now needs to be set to connect to your specific SSID; an SSID of ANY will no longer be accepted. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change

Unable to connect with my wrt54lgl


Try changing the channel frequency on your router. You can usually do this by going into your routers configuration page and then seeing what channel it is set on.

On my router, when I had it set on channel 4 or 5 there was too many issues where it was not connecting. Was probably wireless spectrum interfering with the connection. Then I changed the channel to 11 and it connects all the time.

Optimal connection channels will vary from location to location so play around with them and see which one works for you.

(P.S your installlation Disc included with the router will help you get into the device configuration page)

Good Luck!
