Question about Trendware TEW-639GR Router

1 Answer

No wireless N

For some reason, I cannot connect to the router at any speed faster than 54mb/s even though the devices that I am connecting both support wireless n. When I set the router to n only and no security, the devices simply will not connect at all. Any suggestions?

    You can create a wireless network without a password. In fact, many people who buy a Netgear or Linksys router set up the wireless network and don't encrypt it at all. Anyone who has ever lived in an apartment complex has experienced the abundance of unprotected networks. Another reason that I know this is not the problem is that I was able to connect to the wireless network just fine with "b/g/n" mixed mode enabled with or without WPA2-PSK encryption. I couldn't connect with a speed faster than 54Mb/s.
    I was attempting to connect to the wireless network with two machines. One is an Asus 1001P and the other is a machine that I built from components which has a Rosewill RNX-N300X wireless card. Both are able to connect with mixed "b/g/n" but unable to connect with N only, even with WPA-PSK security enabled.

Belkyn g router does not connects with full strength. I have connected just a laptop and a tablet. Tablet gets average speed but laptop finds it hard to receive signal.


The reason your laptop may have trouble connecting at full speed could be due to the quality of its wireless card/motherboard (if built in). There are a few things you can try, first you can try updating the drivers for your wireless card/motherboard via windows update or alternatively from the laptop manufactures website. You will need to make a note of your make and model number of your laptop which is normally on a sticker underneath the laptop. This may improve things as there have been some minor signal issues addressed with driver updates on some wireless card.

Other options:

check if your router has detachable aerials (if they can be unscrewed) if they can you could buy some aerials with a higher dbi. Routers typically ship with 1-3 dbi aerials you can get them typically as high as 8dbi for indoor use, this will improve the signal slightly. If your router has more than one aerial you should replace each of them with the same type and dbi to ensure it works correctly.

buy a usb wireless adapter, these give you access to wireless if you don't have any built in, but can also be used as replacements for your in built wireless.

change your router (a last resort) but there are a number of advantages to this, newer routers a more powerful, faster and use "N" which is faster than G. N gives you speeds of 125mbps upwards. Wireless N routers are backward compatible for B and G devices so any older devices will work but they will still be subject to any limitations of wireless B or G.

I am running hughes net satelite internet on a hughes HN 9000 modem and trying to setup and configure my linksys E3000 wireless router for two hp laptops on direct ethernet connection to our desktop,...


Are you trying to connect the laptops via wireless? Is that where you are seeing 75 mbps? I am assuming you are, and 75 mbps is really not how fast your internet connection is. Rather, that is how fast you are transferring data from your laptop to the wireless router and back. Generally speaking, this should be a way faster connection than your internet is running at. Chances are your internet connection speed is 10 to 20 mbps, which is good and fast.

It is easy to get the two confused, but basically a wireless connection of 75 mbps is an uber fast connection to your wireless router, and only if your actual internet connection was faster than that 75 mbps would you see any slowness due to that.

Wireless N routers are capable of delivering up to 100 mbps connection speeds, but again that is only from your device to the router. The router then goes to your modem and out through the internet. Chances are that connection is not 100 mbps because of interference, which can be walls, other wireless devices, etc.

One way to test your actual internet connection speed is to go to www.speedtest.net and click on one of the links on the map. This will tell you how many mbps you get to the internet.

I have a CISCO Basic Wireless Router. Can this particular Router be connected to an HP Photosmart wireless printer? There is no WPS easy button on the router.


The router is capable of at least Wireless B (11MB) and possibly Wireless G (54MB) or Wireless N standard speeds. The HP Photosmart will do at least Wireless B speeds (and depending on which model - even possibly the faster "G" or "N" standards, too), so yes; it can be connected wirelessly.

You'll have to set up the the HP Photosmart printer the same way you set up other wireless devices to connect to the router. You'll need to input the SSID, Security Encryption Type (WEP or WPA) and associated security "Key" to match those settings that are in the router.

If you can't remember those settings, or never set up the wireless options, you'll have to access the Cisco Router's built in web set up page. Since you didn't include your particular model number, you'll have to look up this info at Cisco's web site yourself.

If you have trouble, include the model of your router and I'll see what additional info I can get for you.

Please rate this reply - thanks!

When using different wireless machines at same time router seems to freeze. Iphone/itouch/laptops nt and xp. Any ideas


Maybe the types of wifi radio waves that your D-Link wifi Ruoter brodcast for an internet connection aren't copatible with some faster or newer divices because some routers use wireless-G waves which is usualy slower than what most of those devices of yours are able to recieve and proccess at and isin't ideal for multi tasking because they begin to slowdown with more than one machine connected because of it's slower signal bradcasting speed.While Wireless-b is alot like Wireless-G but it is usually suposedly considered to surf the web at least 5X faster speeds at least that's what I've heard about it.
I would'nt really know about wireless-b because I have had no reason to buy a Wireless-b nor the reason to use one so i guess I don't really need one yet for now.

Well I hope I have given you some kind of help here but if I did not the I apologize for wasting so much of your time.I hope you figure out your peculiar wireless predicerment sooner or later.

Wireless adapter connects at 54mb but drops to 1mb w/any dataload


Usually, a device will renegotiate a slower speed to compensate for interference. slower speeds are sometimes the most reliable. Its possible to change your wifi channels and try to get one that has less interference, and maintain a stronger signal. You might also want to ensure that any cordless phones in your area are NOT on the same frequency range as your router, because as soon as "Old Great Aunt Mildred" calls you or your neighbor, your wifi goes bye bye.

Wireless connection is slower than wired!


Yes there is a difference although most router manufacturers claim that you can get 4 or even 6x times faster than 54Mbps of a regular 802.11g wireless standard, wired connection(10/100/1000Mbps) are still faster because they are less subjected to interference unlike wireless that are vulnerable to interference like cordless phones, microwave devices, lighting fixtures, distance and the obstruction between your wireless router and the computer.

Wireless router


your router is sold labelled and advertised as 108Mb by cable
and
54Mb by wireless
not a failure its the maximum throughput of the radio spectrum assigned to 801 modems

Not really a problem - but a question


Remember that router will use only 54Mb of bandwidth which will be shared across all users (as long as router is used as access point). Simple mathematics:
1 user = 54Mbps
2 users = 27Mbps
10 users = 5Mbps

Also please note you might have further probems with channel interferences between users when you have all users in the common area

Also remember that 54Mbps will be only wireless Speed. They all will share common Internet connection
