Wireless N is the newer version of wireless signal. It isnt really much of a difference, but N has a slimly faster speed. You would be perfectly fine with G, but i have N and it is really a luxury.

You can do a reset on the router to make a factory settings.On the back of the router you can look for a small hole usually with the word reset.Press it for 20 secs with the router on but disconnected from the Ethernet cable.Start up your PC and surf to the router Web UI (192.168.***) and make your settings.

Generally all laptops with wireless built in have a shutoff button for the wifi connection. While you need the internet turn the wifi off. When you need to print, turn the wifi on, print then turn it off. It is not the best solution, but it should be a short term work-around. The other option is to attach the printer to your laptop with a cable (usb or otherwise). Turn the wifi off. Add more info to your request if this does not solve your problem,

If it solves the problem, leave feedback please.

Internet connection works on one laptop but not the other


First try forcing the DNS Address by channging the option to use the following DNS address in TCP/IP properties. primary DNS is 4.2.2.1 and the secondary DNS is 4.2.2.2 then try to connect. This should work if it doesnt follow the steps 2.
If it is Vista, then Vista has two FW administration user interface screens. One looks as the XP admin UI screen, and the other one is different and is the Advanced FW UI.
> Go to the Adv FW UI which is off of Control Panel. The icon looks like a brick wall.
> It will show you all the FW rules. So look for the filter name, and you can right-click the line and do what you need to do.Let me know whether this works?

I cannot connect with linksys wireless router


From your description, you appear to be connected to the router fine.

Try powering down the modem from Comcast for about 2 minutes then power it back up. If it doesn't come back, call Comcast service as it is likely on their end.

Hope this helps.

If you have wireless N router. You should install wireless N adapter on your children's computers as well. That way, they are compatible with each other coz I guess your children's PC has wireless G adapters. You wont be able to utilize the N signal of the router if your using wireless adapters..

Router/modem?


Your device is a combination Cabal Modem and Wireless Router with a fairly limited security screening profile. While it is doubtful that the problem is the OS on your notebook, it could easily be the wireless network card in your notebook that is the problem.

In this instance replacing the unit is probably the best way to go, as there are much better units available for much less money and in addition you will have full access to the configuration of the router and its security and connection settings.

To replace this device with one new device simply be certain to get a Cabal Router/Modem with Wireless Access.
