Hi there!

Let me try and help you out.

Please describe your cable connections from the modem going to the router. What specific port from the modem goes into the Dlink router?

I have a D-Link 524 router which enables me to work upstairs on my laptop. However, when my wife connects her laptop downstairs it seems to interfere with the signal and I lose my connection. Is there...


That doesn't seem right. When your wife connects, is she using wireless as well or is she on the LAN? You can attempt to change the channel inside the configuration utility in the d-link, but her logging on the LAN or wireless for that matter should not interfere with your performance at all. Weird. Many variables that could be causing this.

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...


More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

If you are "upstairs", is the wireless signal from the "downstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "upstairs"?

I have netgear wgr614 upstairs my laptop downstairs loads pages VERY slowly what can I do


Verify that it is indeed a wifi signal problem by moving the laptop upstairs temporarily.

If this fixes the problem, you're getting poor wifi signal downstairs. Not much you can do with the elements at hand. So try adding another element: install a wifi signal repeater (around US$ 25) somewhere in the middle. Or you can run a cable (or use Powerline Ethernet - around US$ 100) to downstairs, and there install a wifi access point (US$ 30-60). Or directly connect the laptop to the newly installed network wire.

If the problem isn't fixed, you have some other problem on the laptop: most likely a faulty network configuration. Verify against whatever PC you have upstairs; they should have identical configurations except their IP address (if fixed instead of DHCP).

Just to be on the safe side verify the laptop is properly operating and immune from virus and malware. Not all slowdowns are the system's fault.

Happy navigation!

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

D-Link DIR-628 router, i've lost internet connection to the PC!


You would be best to buy a wireless router with a built in modem, this would be much easier for you to setup and manage

What is your router? Try changing the MTU value of the router. You can see it in the configuration page.
The default is 1500. try lowering it to like 1490 first then 1450 if it still didn't work. You can use up to 1400.
