Question about Routers

1 Answer

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.

The router is working with my desktop, however it failed to get connection with my notebook laptop. When I seek for internet connection with my notebook it shows the "server not found" status.


You must do troubleshooting first at your notebook. You must check if your notebook is connected with the router or not. For that go to the command prompt and type ... "ipconfig /all" it will give some details like your ipaddress , getway and dns entry . And check the same with the desktop . Your getway and dns must be same at both in desktop and in notbook. After that trouble shooting i will be able to answer with exact resolution.

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.

Laptop doesnot recognise my router Desktop works fine connection is from cable modem to router. rouer to desktop.


Try changing channels on the wireless tab in the router. On most routers the default wireless channel number is 6 and you and your neighbor could be sharing tha number. Go to channel that is avaiable, I myself had that trouble myself.

I had channel 11 set and someone got the internet and mine was having trouble so I done a scan and found 3 was open and I have no problem since.

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.

Getting my printer to work


Make sure that the settings for file and printer sharing is enabled on both your computers. If the laptop is connecting to the wireless network of your router, you need to make sure that they can communicate fine. Turn off the firewalls on both computers then set them on the same workgroup. :)

Hope this helps.
