SOURCE: 2 Wire 802.11g wont stay connected

Hi, had the same prob. I was able to fix it. The file set you downloaded for the driver (TWWGPC_TEMP) has a file in it called Wireless Cfg, run that if you haven't already, that will configure the card. Then open the folder CMG and run the Setup file. This will install the Wireless Client Card Utility. In the utility add the network(s) you connect with to My networks. After I did that the intermittency of the connection went away. I hope it works for you too.

SOURCE: D-Link Wireless Router WBR-1310, Version A1

I had the same problem.

Make sure you turn off all the security with the software in package then slowly turn it all back on, on piece at a time. For whatever reason, it comes with MAC address filtering already turned on, which makes it impossible to see if you don't have the right info put in to the computer that the router was configured with.

SOURCE: Wireless Internet through 2Wire router not working

First of all change your router to WPA rather than WEP. WEP is easily cracked now and is not secure. That might be what your laptop is looking at.

Secondly, update the wireless drivers to the current version from the website.

Make sure your router is broadcasting on 'auto' (802.11a/b/g, and N if supported), It ay be broadcasting only on, say 11g and your laptop doesn't support it. Updating the wireless drivers may also fix this.

Your question is too generic to answer, please provide more information as to what you are trying to do. Get channels using a tuner? Are you using a cable box or satellite receiver? Please indicate Make and Model of television. Perhaps I could be more helpful with additional info.

My internet keep crashing

If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection. Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit. It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.

Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History." Hit "Delete All." Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons." Hit "OK." Close and reopen the browser. b> Disable Add-Ons b> Go to "Start > Search." Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter." The computer will search for any files with this label. Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)." This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash. b> Reset Internet Explorer b> Open the IE browser. Go to "Tools > Internet Options." Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter." Close and reopen the browser. Hope this helps.

My dns isnt set it says. how do i fix it?

The wireless access point isn't passing DNS to your laptop. Go in an manually assign as the DNS setting.

Type ncpa.cpl into the Start menu search box or hit the Windows key + R at the same time and type it in that box. Right click on the wireless connection and select Properties. Go down to TCP/IP and select it. Click Properties. Enter in the Preferred DNS server box and click OK. Click OK on the Wireless Connection Properties box.

Edit- Reboot your laptop with those new settings. I'll check back in about 45 when I get home to see if you are still having problems.

2nd Edit - Type ncpa.cpl into the Start menu search box again to bring up the Network connections screen. Right click on the Wireless connection and select Diagnose. Let me know if that takes care of it.

I have a motorola dch70 cable box from comcast. I recently hooked it up and set it on top of my TV. I cannot get any info on channels or any info when I hit guide. If I hit the ondemand button it says...

you say that it works if you move it away from the tv set, its due to the electrical interference of the high frequency internal tv signals with that of cable box, you need to shield/reduce the interference by either moving the box away from tv set or placing the box on a grounded metallic plate on the tv set

Need to change password on IR 5570 Address Do not know password to remote into address tab for IR 5570 How can I reset it?? Thanks Charles Dickey Controller Stewart Title of Albuquerque

there is a possiblitly that you can clear the passwords for the copier in service mode..... but weather it will remove the password for a mail box or not i can not say.

what you need to do to get into service mode is
hit the additional functions button....
then the 2&8 at the same time .
then the additional functions button again

this should bring up service mode

now you push the copier tab
then functions tab
then the clear tab
under the clear tab you will pwd clr try hitting it and click ok

hopefully that will clear the passwords but i can't make any promise's if it works for the address book

How to connect the 3.0 IR remote to control the receiver?

Hi there! This is Kimberly Escobar with DISH Network. I just ran across your post and would like to provide you with the information you need. IN order to program your remote to the receiver box the first thing you need to do is access the System Info screen, you can do this by pressing the Sys info button on the front of your receiver box if it has one, by pulling the smart card out, or by powering off the receiver and pressing the channel up button once, Once you are in the System Info screen down at the bottom you will see something that says remote address next to it you will have a white box with a number in it. To address the remote you need to press and hold the SAT button located at the top until all the other buttons light up in red once they do you will enter a number between 1-15 (different from the one already in the white box) after you enter the number you chose press the pound key (#) and record button 3 times, the SAT button should blink red 3 times after that try the remote it should work. You can also find more information and additional help on Dish follow this link it will take you through the steps that need to be performed. If you need any additional help please feel free to contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH.

I need to know it's encryption key

you cant find it without being connected to it.
is there another computer on the network that is working if so just get into the router and look under wireless or security and it will tell you the key.

to access the router on a wokring pc just goto start "cmd" in the run text box and hit run it should bring up a command window that looks something like C:\documents and settings

type ipconfig and press enter

it should give you some info the default gateway is the router so if it says defualt gateway.......: then is router

open internet explorer or other web browser and type or whatever the gateway ip is and hit enter and that should let you into router.

most default passwords on routers are admin/admin or admin with a blank pass or admin/password
