    Hello. Is you tv detecting your SSID for sure. Perhaps younger picking up your neighbors signal. If yes, do you enforce any enhanced security on you linksys such as MAC filtering?

Click the Site Survey tab and select the name of your wireless network or SSID, then click Connect. In this example, we used a wireless USB adapter.
NOTE: images may differ depending on the model number of the adapter.
Step 3:
If the software is asking for a WEP key, enter the WEP key on the WEP Key 1 field.
If the software is asking for a WPA-Personal key, enter the WPA key on the Passphrase field

Why does my m55 loses wifi connection?


Your other devices all buffer the signals internally. Your TV does not. Any disruptions in the continuity of the wireless signal show up as pauses and breaks in the streaming.

You can spend time trying to diagnose, and then changing WiFi channels But quite honestly, if you have neighbours who don't know or care about wireless then any fix you do will be undone because they'll just trample over your signal again.

Either go with a bit of cable (Ethernet cable) from the router to the TV, or buy some Ethernet of Power adapters (Homeplugs) and use them. Beware though, homeplugs radiate quite a bit of energy because they use the unshielded mains cable for transmission. They aren't as quick either as Ethernet cable direct because of the lag from the encryption/decryption and error correct processing.

How to connect two wifi routers using modem....In home on one network???


while two WiFi connections can work, if youdo it that way you will need to disconnect from one and reconnect to other everytime you move from one extreme to the other. also you only extend your range by the distance from one to the other.

what you need (for a weak signal) is a repeater. it is a box designed to listen on one WiFi channel and repeat it on another. bin turn it also listens on the repeated channel for communication from your remote device and repeats it onto the original channel so it is as if the new channel is the original channel... place this repeater at half strength distance (power source will be needed but wires to base computer not needed) and you have extended your range by about half the distance...

to go further out just add another repeater (or more)
I googled "WiFi repeater" and was presented with a wide range of options (see photo for partial screenie)... generally the more expensive the further or wider the range... without even looking further i would suspect that the more expensive ones likely could even cover more range than two of that modem you showed combined

a few shown might be the kind with two units that you plug one near base computer and plug other farthest away from base... they not only use house wiring to power the units but also use the electric wire as an antenna for comunicating as if there were an ethernet connection between them.

How do I remove padlock icon from the WIFI connection site.?


If you enter the correct pass code for that "site" What you call a site is a wifi router or hotspot. When you own one and did set it up, you should look in the manual, what code you gave it.

I connected my vizio 55 inch wireless enabled tv to a new Netgear N600 router, previously I had an older version of a router, now I cannot setup to connect to the new router


I to just upgraded to the Netgear N600 router. No problem with my iMac or 3 Roku boxes in three different rooms, but would not connect to my 22inch Vizio WiFi in the kitchen even though it could see the signal. After 3 days looking on the net, I gave the guest setup on the router a try. It worked! the Vizio sees both signals. Just select the Netgear "guest" and enter the password you set it up with. Works like a charm.

How to connect my Linksys router with my wi tribe modem?? my laptop pick up the wireless signal and can connect,,it says "connected" but when you open a page it says either "invalid server...


The Linksys Wireless router is fine, but your latop is not configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). The computer is connected to the router at layer 2, whereas HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), sits
atop the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) layer, and seems to be trying to
query the ISP's (Internet Service Provider) network for a nameserver (via DNS (Dynamic Name Service) protocol) that doesn't exist on the ISP's network. Configuring the laptop for DHCP and specifying no nameserver will fix this (the ISP's network will dynamically assign a DNS).

Its also possible (though a remote possibility) that your Linksys wifi router may be configured to disallow TCP/IP virtual circuits to/from your computer's IP address - but this is a really advanced
capability of your Linksys wifi router - few know this capability even exists.

Connecting multiple wifi devices to the Linksys router should be no problem, just configure them all to interact with the router using DHCP.

My touch hd could not connect to my home wifi although the connection is visible/detectied.


Even though it is visible and detected the signal strength may not be strong enough to establish a connection. Various factors affect connecting a device to the internet with a WiFi connection, including overall signal strength (G Routers are the weakest), distance from the wireless router to the console and obstacles such as walls and ceilings that interfere with the signal. If you're using a G router and you have your device is too far away or, has obstacles in the way, it will not connect. You should use an N-Router if there is a significant distance between the console and/or there are obstacles. Try connecting right next to the router and see what happens. Also, make sure you are putting in your router's WEP key in correctly.

Have an acer Aspire One netbook and for some reason I cannot connect to the internet even though it is saying that a wifi connection has been established. This has never happened before


If you are connecting on an open WiFi (does not have WEP or WPA enabled), then make sure you are connected to the correct SSID (wireless ID) and not on some other open SSID. If you are on the right SSID, check that you don't have limited connectivity due to low signal strength. If OK, then open Internet Explorer to use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool...
1. click on Tools tab
2. click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
3. click on Next button and follow the steps
If unsuccessful, try powering off the wireless router and the cable/dsl modem for a few minutes and then powering up the modem first followed by the wireless router. Once the netbook has re-established the WiFi connection, repeat the above procedure to Diagnose Connection Problems. Finally, if still unseccessful, connect directly to your wireless router using an ethernet cable from one of the four RJ-45 LAN ports on the router to the netbook's 10/100 ethernet RJ-45 port on its left side. A LAN connection icon should now show in the bottom right of the Desktop's Toolbar. Hovering the mouse cursor over it shows the Local Area Connection pop-up with Speed and Status. If Status is connected, then open Internet Explorer again and use its Diagnose Connection Problems tool to check connectivity to the internet. If still unresolved, the next step would be to log into the router to check its WAN status and depending on the results, you may have to contact your Internet Service Provider.

I can't get internet connection even though it says my connection strength is "excellent."


The netbook is working fine. The WiFi connection or SPID may require you to login as in it is a protected signal. The "Excellent" means that you are receiving an excellent signal from the router. What you want is internet access which is upstream of that. Try a different SPID or connection.

XBOX 360 not connected to wireless connection on Linskys WAG54G2


You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.
