Losing network connection


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.

Computer says,"connected to network signal strength excellent", but I cannot connect to internet


Can you connect to the Internet using the LAN cable?
Have you configured the wireless card in your laptop with the router's wireless settings?

Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Can not connect to wireless router just saying unidentified network it says there is full signal but will not connect to internet


Is it your router password protected?
try unplugging the wireless router in the house and holding the reset button on the back to set it back to default settings.

Leave the route open to see if it connects then. else update the drivers for your laptop and also may have to update the firmware for your router. all can be found on the manufactures websites.

How to go wireless on laptop


You need three things
1) An Internet service provider. Once you sign up and agree to pay the fee they will provide the internet service.
2) A wireless router. This is a unit that receives your internet service by through a connection to your telephone line. Then it transmits a radio signal (wireless signal) that your laptop can receive.
3) A Wifi card in your laptop or an external USB Wifi Dongle. This is a radio or wireless receiver that picks up the signal from your router.
The router is usually security protected with a keycode. All you need to do is set up your Wifi card or dongle with the same keycode and you will be able to receive the internet wirelessly.
To check to see whether your laptop has a Wifi card already installed, do the following:
Click Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Network Connections> and look for "Wireless Network Connection." If you have this, then your computer has a Wifi card installed and ready to go.

I have a G60 and i use a home router with cable for internet access but also plug in a Sprint Mobile broadband card and use on the road occasionally. When i use the card and get back home my router is no...


You can search for wireless networks and see your network name surely by right cling on the icon lower right of the screen in the task bar.. I assume the network has been secured...if not maybe hijacked.

If still no go may be faulty router or the mobile card is changing protocols.

I keep losing the internet signal and going offline. LAN indicates pending??? How do I perform a system reset with Linux??


Power cycle the system by shutting it down and switching it on after at least thirty seconds. Check network settings to verify the IP address and other related information. Determine if the network card is working adequately. Identify the malfunctioning adapter by disabling the cards one by one. Move one of the portable hosts--such as a laptop--closer to the router. If it works better, interference or low signal strength is the reason for poor Internet access. Inadequate signal performance can be caused by several factors including cordless devices working within the frequency range (2.4 GHz) of a wireless network, shiny surfaces and too much distance between hosts and access points. Resolve this issue by using a wireless repeater?a device that amplifies wireless signal so it reaches distant areas within the premises. Minimize signal interference by maintaining a distance of at least one meter between cordless devices and the router. Alternatively, buy gadgets that function at frequencies other than 2.4 GHz. Try changing the WiFi channel for better results. Check the functioning of wireless router and access points. Adjust the router antenna to get an optimum signal. Most wireless routers come with omni-directional antennae to send signals in all directions, a situation appropriate for a square-shaped network. If hosts are arranged in a linear fashion, use an antenna that sends signals only in one direction. Some portable routers have internal antenna, giving more freedom to users who are on the go. Use an external antenna with such routers. The market now offers antennae with varying strengths, implying some are more powerful than others. See if using a more powerful antenna fixes the problem. Aside from increasing the range of transmitted signals, the reception capacity of hosts can also be enhanced. External WiFi-enabled antennae attached to laptops are now available for this purpose. Change the location of the router and access point. They should ideally be placed centrally between all computers. As the signal bounces off smooth and shiny surfaces, routers and access points should be placed away from windows, doors, mirrors and other metallic surfaces. Examine signal performance by using the monitoring utility that typically comes with the access point. Check that the devices show correct lights. Device lights are an indicator of accurate connections. Different lighting patterns indicate different things. For example, some network cards show green light on successfully establishing a connection. Similarly, the router's wireless LAN (WLAN) light is turned on at all times, even if no device is connected to it. Further, this light blinks when a host communicates with another host. Unexpected lighting indicates a problem. Go through user manuals to get familiar with this feature and make sure the devices show desired lighting behavior. Use wireless Internet utilities to check the SSIDs and channels neighboring wireless networks are using. Change your network's SSID and/or channel if they are the same as that of other networks in the vicinity. See if correct drivers have been installed. Check configuration settings for encryption keys.

I have an older computer that does not have a wireless card, but my internet is through a verizon um175 air card. i have gotten 10 different answers, and none work. 3 different answers from verizon alone...


Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.

Staying connected to internet, using sprint 595 air card


If I were you, I would let your windows manage your wireless network on the computer with vista. Also you might, If you haven't already tried using your install new programs in the control panel, As long as you have the sprint software downloaded in your laptop windows should still recognize the wireless connection, Try letting windows manage it from the Network properties and there should be an option there that lets windows manage you network. try it see if that helps you out. If not write back here and let me know we can try another route. Sorry you having problems.

Lap top problem


Wireless network adapters require an associated wireless receiver (such as a wireless router or wireless access point) to recieve the radio signals from the adapter and eventually route them to a wire and in you case it would be the wire providing internet services to your desktop computer. If there is no wireless receiver there is no device to convert the radio communications of the wireless adapter and rout those signals to the internet.

I hope this helps.
