Why is my signal stength very low?


Sounds like you need a new wireless card in the one that shows low signal strength. You can buy a good usb wireless card that gets a great signal for less than $30.00

How come my sony vaio vgc-rb52 desktop goes on but i get no signal


if you are referring to the signal strength of your wireless internet, first try to turn off both devices your laptop and your wireless modem or router. Now if you have a portable usb broadband connection and the signal is showing weak or no signal at all call your internet provider so they can check if they have any server issues.

Wireless adaptor problem


you could have a bad wireless card. is your wireless card built in is it one your stick in? You can try resetting the routers modem and computer and then starting them all back up, make sure no radio signals are interfering, and make sure no electical devices such as a phone, toaster...are close to the router and computer.........make sure routers are at highest point for the best signal strength....if none of this works the best bet it might be a bad network card...if you have a warranty call the warranty company they will cover bad networks card...hope this helps

How to connect wireless router, Netgear WGR614, to my computer?


4 steps to set up your home wireless network
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
The first step is to make sure that you have the equipment you need. As you're looking for products in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports three different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. We recommend 802.11g, because it offers excellent performance and is compatible with almost everything.
Shopping list
• Broadband Internet connection
• Wireless router
• A computer with built-in wireless networking support or a wireless network adapter

A wireless router
The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Be sure to get a wireless router, and not a wireless access point.
A wireless network adapter
Network adapters wirelessly connect your computer to your wireless router. If you have a newer computer you may already have wireless capabilities built in. If this is the case, then you will not need a wireless network adapter. If you need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer, buy a USB wireless network adapter. If you have a laptop, buy a PC card-based network adapter. Make sure that you have one adapter for every computer on your network.
Note: To make setup easy, choose a network adapter made by the same vendor that made your wireless router. For example, if you find a good price on a Linksys router, choose a Linksys network adapter to go with it. To make shopping even easier, buy a bundle, such as those available from D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, Microsoft, and Buffalo. If you have a desktop computer, make sure that you have an available USB port to plug the wireless network adapter into. If you don't have any open USB ports, buy a hub to add additional ports.
2.
Connect your wireless router
Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.
