Why cant i get wifi or wireless internet to work


Bill:
depends on how u r hooked to internet. direct thru cat5 cable to modem, or wirelessly thru router? then, you must make sure that your modem is connected to web? make sure modem is connected; plug in to desktop(off) then turn desktop on; go to start, then control panel, then Network and Internet; find out if you see a connection? if so, then right click on network connection, click on Troubleshoot Issues. this will try to resolve your internet connectivity. if you still cannot get online, call your internet provider for more specific steps in fixing.

Hello,
Is this your first router or you are replacing an existing one with this? If you had a router setup before don't name the wireless network the exact same as your old one unless you go into your wireless properties on all your wireless machines and delete saved profiles.
What kind of security are you using on the wifi? wep, wpa wpa2? If you are using wpa2 and have not updated all your computers to the latest service packs for windows you can have some issues as well. Some routers don't work well with ps3's, try setting the router security to wep and make a ten digit password.
Also the Dell XPS M1530's are known for bad performing wireless cards. You may be able to obtain an updated bios firmware from Dell's website to help fix this though i'm sure it's not the cause of why you can't connect to this router.
See if this helps, if not respond and I will give some more tips.

Cant connect my sons nintendo 3ds to the internet


Hello. For setting up an internet connection with your Nintendo 3DS, you have to follow these easy steps:

1. Turn on your console and go to System Settings
2. Tap Internet Settings
3. Tap Connection Settings
4. Tap New Connection
5. Tap Manual Setup
6. Tap Search for Access Point (Here, your Nintendo will search for any wireless connections in range. You will see a status message: Access point found)
7. Look for a Wireless connection (if it's not yours, you have to know the password in order to acces other's connections) Every locked/unlocked connection has a lock/unlock icon. Acces the unlocked icon and then you are connected!

Note: If you didn't manage it / if you don't know your wireless security key / if you are not sure which wireless connection is yours or if you don't see any, please leave a REPLY.

I hope I helped!

Wireless issues with my Dell XPS/Dimension One desktop


Even if it's a new Dell, you may need to update either the drivers for the wireless card or the BIOS.

Also, verify which protocol your Dell is set to use (i.e. 802.11g, 802.11b, auto-select, etc.). Dell may have fixed to to a slower protocol for compatibility.

Web pages won't display


You have to call netgear again then ask them where you can find the MTU settings of the router. The default value is 1500. You can change it to 1450 first then 1400 if the first value won't work.
