Any of the retail routers are pretty good. I'm a big fan of Linksys since they are made by a larger networking company, Cisco. But, really, anything you see in the electronics stores should suit you just fine.

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????


Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

Thanks.

I have cable internet through Charter. Want to use GT704WG router


Unfortunately, this router is only able to be used with DSL. When you are using cable internet this router will be rendered useless with your new service. If you call customer service for Charter they do offer Home Networking that provides you with a wireless router for a small monthly fee or if you are looking for a lower cost one time charge you might check with them as well and see if they provide a "refurbished" wireless router or check on ebay for some good deals....

Good luck...

Can not connect to internet


My first guess is that your Dlink ADSL modem is really a modem router, so you are getting double routing. Sometimes this works just fine, though, so I'm not confident that's the whole explanation.
You'll need to setup your IP plan carefully
set the D-Link modem(router?) to bridging mode & the DLink wireless router does the login to Exetel.
DLink wireless router WAN side: DHCP + login to Exetel
DLink wireless router LAN side: 192.168.0.1
Subnet 255.255.255.0
DHCP on: range 192.168.0.10 to .20
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4
with PC's wireless adaptor set to DHCP
so picks up eg:
IP address: 192.168.0.10
Gateway address: 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4

Ps3 online


Dial up is NOT recommended. I honestly do not think it would even work. DSL and broadband work great. If you get DSL or broadband you would need your original ethernet cord and hook up the PS3 from your router. If you go wireless then you would need a wireless router.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Wireless Internet causes blue screen of death


-- "limited conn.."-- you should configure the internet connection in the router's software ie 192.168.2.1 or any other IP for the router, use ISP help desk for this (if it's free).

Blue screens have numbers and sometimes explanations, usually they pop up because of incompatible driver, chek router software(driver) compatibility.

explanation of blue screens are in the following link:

Opening ports on 4100


Thanks for the information. I'd recommend obtaining a router, it would make your life easier because routers are made to do exactly what you're needing to do (split your internet connection among several devices (PS3, PC, etc.). I'm a fan of Linksys routers, I use them in every home deployment possible. You can find the Linksys WRT54G or some variant at any big box store (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.) or at online retailers (NewEgg.com, Buy.com, Amazon.com) for real cheap. All you'll need to do is hook up your router to your ISP'd modem, hookup your PC & PS3 to your router, enabled uPNP (universal Plug & Play) on the router and you're set.

You could use your PC as a router (assuming your PC has two network cards in it). You just turn on Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and specify which card is connected to the ISP's modem (internet) and which one is connected to the PS3 (internal network). I don't recommend this solution as it is a bit buggy and having to route all the data from PS3 through your PC degrades the online performance on both the PC & PS3.

I hope this info helps, let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

Broadband connection problem


I do not have this hardware however from the internet I see a simple recommendation -- get the modem working with a direct connected computer. Then power off the modem and connect the wireless router also powered off. Then power on the modem, then power on the router. Inidications are that this will result in a functioning router.

for general wireless security see
