Tip

Getting the most out of a Home Network


A wired connection is still the best way to get maximum download and upload speeds because your computer is directly connected to your gateway/router via an Ethernet cable. While this method offers consistent speed, it might not be convenient running multiple PCs and Laptops with a wire in your home.

Improving your wireless connections:

1. Do not use wireless connections where it is not needed or not important.
Devices that are not moved frequently such as a printer or a desktop PC can use the ethernet cable to minimize traffic in the wireless connection. Some home users use a wireless adapter for their desktop PC to connect wirelessly which I think is irrelevant not unless your desktop PC is really far from the router. Most routers provide 4 ethernet ports which you can use for the printer and desktop PC.

2. Make sure that your Wireless Network has WEP/WPA enabled.
All routers are equipped with security features that can provide passwords to your network. A secure network is less susceptible to unathorized use of your network. The more users use your network, the slower it becomes.

Sample video on how to secure your network using a LinkSys Router:



3. Get a better range.
Depending on how your home is designed, your wireless gateway may not be able to reach certain parts of the home, but you may be able to improve access to those trouble spots. There are several companies that have developed wireless repeaters (sometimes called a signal booster), devices that can pick up the signal from your router and extend that signal to other parts of the house. It should be noted that any repeater has its own limitations and the greater your distance from the repeater the weaker your signal and the slower your speed will be.

4. Change your wireless channel to reduce interference.
You may experience weak or dropped signals if a cordless phone or any other electronic device and your wireless router share the same frequency channel. A potential fix for this issue is to change the channel, thereby reducing frequency interference. The wireless channel can be can be accessed in the wireless settings of your routers interface. Channels to choose from are Channels 1 to 11. This should be done in a trial and error method, choose whatever channel delivers the most speed.

Sample video on how to change the wireless channel on a Zoom Router:




5. Make sure that you are running the latest firmware and driver updates.
One of the easiest steps to improve your connection speed is to make sure you are running the latest software updates for your wireless adapter. If you are, the next step would be to check if your network card has been updated with the latest drivers. To confirm that you have the latest drivers available, go to the wireless card manufacturer's website and look for a Support and/or Driver link. If you have a built in wireless client (one that cannot be removed from your PC), check to see if your PC manufacturer has issued any updates.

The above tips has greatly improved our home network which consists of a Prolink router, 2 netbooks, 1 laptop, 1 desktop pc, 1 printer and an occasional use of mobile phones to connect to the internet.

Thank you for using FixYa!
Have a great day!

How to change password


It is actually quite easy. On a device connected to the router, go to the routers lan address (default 192.168.1.1) and then log-in (default user: [leave blank] default pass: admin).Go to the securities section and where it says network security, you should choose WPA2 and enter a password. Press save and you should have a network password now!

How do i set up secured network?


set-secured-wireless-network-netgear-800x800.jpg Set up a Secured Wireless Network on Netgear Photo is inappropriate for this article Submit

A wireless network is comprised of a wireless router, a computer (or other wireless-enabled devices), a high-speed modem, and a subscription to an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Netgear is a popular manufacturer of wireless networking hardware that allows users to set up a secured wireless network. In order to prevent unauthorized users from logging onto your wireless network to gain access the Internet, and in order to protect the data you transmit and receive online, you should change your wireless router's security settings to create a secured wireless network.

1 Install the router. To install a Netgear wireless router, use an Ethernet cable to connect the router to the cable/DSL modem and use another Ethernet cable to connect the router to your computer. Make sure all of these devices are powered off as you connect them. Once connected, turn on the cable/DSL modem, the router, then the computer, in that order. Allow at least two minutes to pass after turning on each device to give the devices time to recognize one another

2 Log in to the router. Open a web browser and type in the router's address to load the router's settings page. The router's address can be found in the user guide or setup CD that came with your router, or you can download a user guide from Netgear's technical support page (see Resources). Most Netgear routers use one of the following addresses: http://192.168.1.1; http://www.routerlogin.net; or http://www.routerlogin.com. Press "Enter" or click "Go" in your web browser after you have entered the address.


3 Enter the router's username and password. A prompt will appear on the screen when you enter your router's address, requiring you to enter a username and password before you can access the router's settings page. The default username for Netgear routers is "username" and the password is "password." Because the textboxes are case-sensitive, you must enter both of these using all lowercase letters. Press "Enter" to log in to the router and begin changing its security settings.

4 Open the security settings menu. The router's home page has multiple links for changing settings. Find and click the "Security Settings" link to change the router's security settings.

5 Change the SSID, choose an encryption setting and create a password. The default name (or "SSID") of your wireless network will be "NETGEAR." Enter a new, memorable name for your wireless network to help detract would-be hackers from trying to access your router, as most novice computer users with unsecure networks do not know how to change the default network name or institute any other security features. Newer Netgear routers offer WPA or WPA-PSK encryption to secure your network, both of which provide high levels of security. Select either of these. encryption types and create a unique password. This will require all users to enter the password before they can log in to your wireless network. It is important that you create a complex password that has several characters, including numbers. Once you have created a password, click "Confirm Password" to save it. To exit the security settings menu and log off of the router, click "Save" or "Apply" to save the changes you made, then click "Logout" to exit the route



Things You'll Need

* Netgear wireless router
* High-speed Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast, AT&T, Insight)
* Cable/DSL modem
* 2 Ethernet cables
* Computer
* Web browser
* Router address
* Router's username and password

Good Luck : ) ....

Slow speed tests


Your HP G60 has an 802.11 b/g card. 802.11g has a maximum rated speed of 54 mbps, like the router. You never get the actual "rated" speed with wireless cards, this would occur only with maximum signal strength, no network protocol overhead, no security, etc. if you were to replace your current card in the Satellite with an 802.11 b/g card, you would get comparable results.
