The weak signal is due to either physical barriers - walls etc, distance from transmitter (router) or interferance (other netowoks broadcasting) You may be able to improve things by

  1. raising the router up higher
  2. move to a more centeral location in house
  3. changing the supplied antenna for a high gain antenna
  4. placing an "external" antenna on the router EG ensure it physically connects to your router though before buying - check you router manual for the correct connector type. Also some routers donot have detachable antennas
  5. change channel that wireless router operates on
The one that will not connect what OS are you running?

what have you tried so far

Post back and I'll try to assist you further

When i connect the dsl cable to it the dsl light starts flashing green then red


Put tinfoil over your splice connectors and filters as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.

How do I use my laptop as an internet source for my wireless router?


You Internet access is through the cable or DSL modem.
Connect your wireless router to the cable or DSL modem and then configure the wireless router with the wireless encryption settings. Then configure the wireless cards in the laptops with the router's encryption settings etc. This will then allow the laptops to connect wirelesslt to the wireless router and the Internet.

My wife yanked the phone line from the wall and thats when my 2 wire DSL gateway model 2701HG-B modem quit working i plugged into other parts of the house But i just keeps blinking red like its still...


Hello.

Try to unplug power on back of your modem. Let the phone line plugged in. Wait 10 seconds and plug the power back.

Wait about 1 minute and try it with your computer. This procedure will reconnect using a new IP address on your internet service provider.

It should work if you don't have a router. If you have a router attached to your modem, unplug power on both then plug your modem first and wait 1 min. Then plug back your router and wait 1 min. Try your internet connection after doing it. If you still don't have connection, try to restart your computer.

Hope this helps!

Can i use a wireless cable modem gateway (netgear) to make my current dsl modem connection wireless.


If your DSL-modem has one Ethernet port, then use an Ethernet cable to connect from that port to the WAN port on your NetGear router. Then, the router will provide both "wired" and "wireless" connections to your computers & devices.

Macbook and I-touch loses wireless connection with versalink dsl


It sounds like the dsl modem and the gateway should be sync'd in the following way:
1. Turn everything off and disconnect the dsl for a bit. Make sure even the wifi stuff is off.
2. Turn on your gateway and let it cyce up.
3. Plug the dsl ethernet cable into your gateway, and to your phone line, then plug in the power to the dsl.
This will cause the dsl modem to "find" the gateway IP address and connect.
4. Turn everything else back on.
This should eliminate all the drops...
Let me knowhow it goes...

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

How do I connect my cable/DSL line to this device?


The 3Com® OfficeConnect® Cable/DSL Gateway does not have an internal cable or DSL modem. The gateway router is designed to connect to the Ethernet output from your cable or DSL modem. An Ethernet cable is supplied with the product for this purpose.
