Question about Computers & Internet

Having trouble connecting with my HP notebook.

I have my router and desktop in my basement. I have trouble connecting with my notebook on the main level of my house. Sometimes I need to get within 15 feet of my router to connect. Do I need to relocate my router to the main level or can I get by with a name brand router? I have a no name router that was supplied by my phone company.

Laptop stopped connecting via wifi to home network.


The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.
You can restore the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.

Connecting to wireless from my basement!


you need to add a repeater or signal booster for reciving signal in basement from uper floor.

My expierince is that whatever roueter you buy doenst matter it will not work properly if you are using wirless on 2 diffrent floors. on a same floor it can work smoothly even having walls.

2nd Computer in basement cannot access Internet


if your signal is low in there the best work around would be to lay a cat-5 cable up to the router, the wired connection would be faster and more reliable then a wireless, or buy another wireless router and put it closer to the basement than the first and wire the 2 routers togher with cat5 using the second router as a fancy switch.

Wireless Connection Problem


The wireless card didn't get a IP address from the router when it booted up.
Right click on the wireless icon and then click on Repair.
This will force the wireless card to get a new IP address from the wireless router.

Loses network connection or says low connectivity.


hmmm... need to see if this is from the router end or the problem is your laptop. phone company replaced the router-- did they stick around long enough to see you connect to it with your laptop?

how long has the connection worked properly between the wireless laptop and your basement router?

can you visit a starbucks or whatnot to see if you can surf with your latop (i.e. it's not your laptop wireless card)

can you get a friend to come over to try your router with their wireless laptop?

what if you stay just in teh basement -- does the connection drop at all?
