Many things can interfere with the signal

  • distance from router
  • brick Walls
  • wireless phones near router
  • aerial loose on router
sometimes, wrapping aluminum foil, around the aerial to make it bigger can help.

good luck

Have 1 desktop and laptop connected to router ans i bought a new laptop .. and it wont work with my wireless belkin router what am i doing wrong?


check whether driver for wireless is installed properly in the laptop .To check it navigate the device manager and see device wireless is installed.
The wireless may be sometimes disabled ensure it is enabled.
Then try to search for the wireless signal and connect to it.
Ensure correct ip address is received automatically in laptop by using command ipconfig/all in command prompt
check router dhcp address range.

Wireless laptop wont pick up wireless at home


Try to improve the wireless range of your router
1.
Position your wireless router in a central location.
Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects. Metal, walls, and floors will interfere with your router's wireless signals. The closer your router is to these obstructions, the worse the interference, and the weaker your signal will be.
2.Change the wireless channel of your router. Sometimes one wireless channel is clearer than others.
a.Open a Web Browser on the computer. In the address bar of the Web Browser type http://192.168.2.1
b.Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit
c.Click on Channel and SSID the left hand column under the Wireless heading.
d.Change the wireless channel that your router is broadcasting on.
Note: You don't need to change your computer's configuration, because it'll automatically detect the new channel.

Acer Wireless Network Card Will Not Connect


Sometimes when you bootup and the error message = "wireless connection has limited or no connection", or has a red X on the wireless icon, it is because the router has not issued an IP address to the wireless card. Right click on the wireless connection and then click Repair.
If this doesn't work then reboot the router then the laptop, this should fix the problem

I have a balance 557s laptop that the wireless wont work it shows the icon with a red x wont turn on when you push the wireless button


Sometimes when you get a red x against the wireless icon, it means the wireless card did not get an IP address from the wireless router or the router needs resetting.
To get the router to issue a new IP address to the laptop, right click on the wireless icon and click on Repair.
If this doesn't work, power off thr router for 30 secs and power up the router, wait till the LEDs on the router are on then boot up the laptop or do a Repair on the wireless icon.

Router randomly stops sending out wireless signal


You may be getting interference from other routers in your area.
Check to see what channels the other routers are broadcasting in your area, change it to a channel that is not being used.
The location of the router could affect the signal strength, move the router away from concrete reinforced walls etc, and or move the router to a higher position in a clear space.

Cant see my wireless network on my laptop


You need to start by checking two things:

1. Is the wireless nic on the laptop turned on? Sometimes there is a switch or button on the laptop casing that turns the wireless nic on and off. Also you can sometimes turn the wireless nic on and off via a key combination on the keyboard. If you're sure it's turned on, take it to a wireless hot spot to verify that it is in fact picking up wireless networks in the area.

2. Did you connect to the wireless router using an ethernet cable, log into the routers configuration interface, and verify that the wireless access point is in fact turned on?

If the above does not lead you to a solution please answer the questions in this thread so that we can continue.
