Try putting the router ip address in your browser address bar, if the router configuration page is displayed this would normally mean there is not a problem with your wifi connection.
Most routers will from these pages indicate wether you are connected to the internet successfully if you are unable to determine this from the indication lights on the router.

I can connect to xbox live wireless when in same room as router but go upstairs and can not connect..help please


Could be due to metal in the floor like insulation shielding the radio.
Would suggest using a power point switch if power points are on same power circuit
http://www.techbuy.com.au/searchcat/NETWORKING_ETHERNET_OVER_POWER.asp
and then either connect power point network switch to another wireless access point upstairs to cover upstairs area. All settings have to be the same as wi fi router down stairs. Same encryption password . Or you could just plug the Xbox into the power point ethernet network switch via ethernet blue cable.

Netgear never gives a defined range in metres.
Will the WiFi adapter work with the TV, as it is designed to be controlled by a computer not a TV?
The USB socket on the TV is designed for being used as PVR, video recorder, not to connect to the internet.
You need to consult your TV manual, as I don't think it will ever work.

I have another computer i want to install in the up stairs.do i need another dsl router to connect to it????.


If you have a Westell 6100, it's just a modem meant to connect a single computer to the Internet. It has the jack where you plug in the cord to your DSL phone line, and an Ethernet jack so you can plug in your computer. You can't have more than one of these connected to the phone line because of address conflicts that would result.

What you need is a wireless router so your Internet connection can be shared by several computers. Most service providers are installing Westell models that combine the modem and a 4-port wired/wireless router for new customers now. Since you have the modem only, you'll need to supply the router. The wireless function lets you use the upstairs computer without having to run a network cable to connect it. That's much cleaner and simpler. There will be four connectors on the back of the router for wired computers or other things (such as a network printer) you might want to connect. You still have only one connection to your DSL line, but now you can hook up several computers at once.

There are several companies making wireless routers and they all do pretty much the same thing. Netgear, Linksys and D-Link are the most common, and you can buy a wireless router at almost any retailer that sells computers. You can also find them online from companies like TigerDirect or Newegg. Other than staying with one of the major brands (it's easier to find support for those if you need it), there's not much to recommend one kind over another.

It's pretty easy to install a wireless router and set up your wireless network. They all come with a CD containing setup software that will guide you through the process. You'll have that upstairs machine on line in no time.

Cant grt xbox360 wireless adapter conected to wireless router on pc down stairs


I assume the wireless router is configured correctly and the PC can connect to the wireless router and the Internet.
The problem could be that the signal is too weak upstairs for the XBox especially if you have a concrete floor between the XBox and the wireless router. Try moving the wireless router around to increase signal strength to the CBox.
The other problem could be the XBox is not configured correctly.
Follow these instructions to configure the XBox.
  1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
  3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
  4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
  5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
  6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

Do i have to have a linksys router to be able to use usb adapter?


No you do not, but you do need some form of a wireless router to make that Internet connection wireless. Depending on which modem you have that connects to the Internet, you might already have a wireless router.

Connect ps3 wirelees to internet


On your PS3, do the following:

- scroll to settings
- network settings
- internet connection settings
- select wireless

Follow the on screen instructions, and use the 'easy' set up option as it is all that is required on most.

For your Router:
- Know the SSID
- Have WEP key or any security info to hand
- If you have the SSID broadcast switched off on the router, it may not appear on the PS3. If the PS3 cannot locate your network, try enabling SSID broadcast.

Hope that helps!

Slow connection


Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router.
Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location.
If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)
