Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

1 Answer

Sometimes the wireless internet just doen't work. It suddenly and randomly either says it can't connect or just doesn't show up as an option at all. When I used my laptop to try to troubleshoot, it tells me that "windows cannot resolve your wireless connectivity issues." The next screen tell me that it was unable to automatically fix a "problem with wireless adapter or access point." I've tried unpluging the router, as per windows' suggestion and clicking REPAIR under the support tab on the base computer connected by ethernet. Please help.

This can be due to various problems. Lets try to figure out what is it exactly. First off all see the signal strength at the time that the laptop can not connect.If the signal is just 0-1 lines you may have disconnections. Another point of view is the number of the wireless networks at the area; if there are plenty there might be an interference between yous and one of the others. Try to locate at the router's settings page / wireless connection / channel & ssid and change the channel from auto to manual and try at any of the 13 available channels. Your laptop will locate the new channel automatically.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Thank you for using fixya.

Being that your other computers in the network are working properly, you should switch the ip settings on your comnputer to automatically detect. That way your computer does all the routing and ip setting,

After you have set that back. Remove the power of your router, remove the power of your modem, and restart your computer.

Once your computer is back up, turn on modem, then the router.

It sounds very simple, but in most cases, it solves the problem.


Hope this information is helpful

Desktop works (direct to router), laptops cannot connect


first of all make sure that the wireless settings of the router match the settings of your wireless computer.

make sure also that there are no friewall or security programs running in your computer because they can interfere with the wireless connection as well.

Won't install properly...


Go to your power management setting and turn everything off. I don't know what version of windows you have, so I'll use Windows XP.
Start => Settings => Control Panel => Power Options. Turn all options OFF.
If it disconnects at random you may need to change the channel setting on the cable router.
