I need help hooking up wireless internet


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and your laptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Hi, my broadband cuts out at 11pm everyday. how do i have it on a constant basis? thankyou


Hi there,
This isn't a simple answer without more information:
What kind of broadband are you using? Satellite/Cable/DSL/Other?
Does this happen momentarily (drops off, comes back on) or is it permanent (drops off, stays off until next day)?
Are you using a router in conjuction with your broadband modem? If so, try resetting the router with the reset button on the bottom/back. This will set your router back to manufacture state and you will have to input your settings again. If this doesn't help, consider a replacement router.
Do you live in an apartment building or rural area? Lots of people using the same line can have a major slowdown effect on broadband, especially DSL. This can cause a dropoff of service temporarily.
Do you have a timed line, so that everyday at 11pm it will turn off power?
Is your ISP aware of this issue? Have you called to complain or make a statement about your service?

I just bought this router and am trying to get it connect with a Verison wirelss USB mobile broadband. How can I connect it to my computer and an Xbox 360?


For Verizon i found that Currently, the DIR-412 Mobile Broadband Wireless Router is the only D-Link router that is 3G compatible. The DIR-412 supports 3G USB adapters complying with HSUPA/HSDPA/EV-DO/TD-SCDMA networks and works with most major cellular carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc).
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft Xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link router to go along with your broadband connection and Xbox Live subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries from around the world.

The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests for compatibility with Microsoft Xbox Live with specific firmware. Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to Xbox Live.

  • Click here to upgrade your firmware.
  • Click here for Xbox Live setup instructions with a router.
  • For Xbox Live support, please visit www.xbox.com.

    I want to hook up a wireless router to my sprint sierra wireless aircard 595U. How do I do it?


    Actually you hook your aircard to the router...
    When you turn on your device, it will detect the network being broadcast by your router. The router broadcasts it's SSID (network name) and this will appear on your screen as one of the networks available in your area. Select your own networks and click connect. You will need your WEP (network key) to logon on though so make sure you have this ten letter code before you start.

    Router connection problem


    you will not see your router in any of the places you looked.
    Easiest method:
    Shutdown your PC and laptops. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
    Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC and laptops. The PC and laptops should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider.

    Finding a local area connection


    Is this a wireless connection?
    If yes than most of the times the problem is that the signal is weak, try to put your Router/AP to a better place and see if you can connect, netstumbler can give you a hand in this, not sure if it's working under vista or not, but under xp it's perfect. My experience ist that what you need to have at least is 15 For SNR for your Router from the place where you are trying to connect. If it goes under 10 it will drop you down.
    Better SNR means stronger signal and that's all that matters with a simple wireless connection.

    You can get a regular wireless G broadband router (WRT54G) But you must also check if your sprint modem has an ethernet port so that you will be able to connect the router to it.

    Hooking Sprint aircard to Wireless Boroadband Router


    You could do this, it would be a bit of work! You would have to dedicate the computer with the sprint card to provide the internet connection to your router, which would then supply all the other computers with internet.

    Assuming you have windows XP or Vista on the machine with the sprint card you would enable Internet Connection Sharing, which would provide an internet connection into whatever is plugged into the ethernet port, your router.


    Hope this helps!
