CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Cannot connect with laptop although signal strength says excellent. Intermittent problem. sometimes it works then drops connection. Won't even connect when laptop is next to router.


Hi,

Please power cycle the router by unplugging / plugging the power cord.

Try changing channels; default is 6; try 1 or 11.
Change your SSID: personalize it
SSID broadcast: Enable

Check the advanced wireless settings and make sure MAC filtering - DISABLED.

Reset the Linksys router by pressing RESET for 30 seconds should everything fails and re-configure. Firmware is another consideration BUT this is just a new release.

Regards,

Angel

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Attempting connection of a hp photosmart 7200 printer


What is the brand of your wireless router? Just make sure the SSID (signal's name) is configured on the wireless setting of your printer. They should have the same SSID configured. If the correct SSID is already configured on the printer's wireless settings, try to change the channel on your wireless router. Use channel 11. You can also try to do a power cycle. Turn off your wireless router and printer for about 1 minute. Power on router first, wait for the lights to stop blinking, then power on your printer.

Wireless router not detected by laptop


Hi!

First, make sure you know the SSID (name of your wireless network) and Network key (if your wireless router is secured). Also, make sure that the SSID broadcast of your laptop is enabled (this is an option in the router if they will broadcast the signal or not).

I assume that your laptop came with a built in Broadcom adapter. Depending on the brand of your laptop, there is always a wireless switch. You need to look for the wireless switch and turn it ON. For most laptops it's a sliding switch on either the side or front of the laptop. For some it's a combination key - like pressing FN + F2 at the same time.


For XP laptops, you can use the XP wireless utility located on the lower right side of your screen like this :

6857344.jpg
For some reason the XP utility cannot detect any signal and it's telling you that "Windows cannot configure this.. if you enable another utility, use that software to connect", that only means that there is another software in the computer that is running the wireless connection. You can go to Start > All Programs and look for that utility - you can start by searching a program like broadcom.

For Vista , look for this icon to connect:

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!
