Tip

Boost wi-fi signals!!!


It is true that a direct cabled connection is probably faster, but that doesn't mean you can't get great Internet connection speeds from a WiFi connection. WiFi is a signal, so it's simply a matter of boosting that signal to extend as far as you need it to, and doing it in a way so you'll still get the same amount of power. There are ways to extend your WiFi signal, and most of them won't cost a penny. Here are my ten ways to boost your wifi signal:
  1. Position The Router - Yes, where you place your router does matter. If your wireless desktop or laptop is in another room, the signal has to go through walls and other interference before it reaches you. You can change the positioning and give everyone equal access. For example, in an open office room setting, instead of placing the router in a corner, try putting it in the middle of the room. It might give better coverage to the entire office. The signal should extend out more evenly. If you're looking for optimal wireless coverage in various parts of your home, position the router in the middle of the house. Moving it up off the floor, to a bookcase or shelf, should also help. If you only have one wireless computer, and it's always in the same place (ie: your office, the kitchen, or the hammock) then it makes more sense to place the router closer to the computer, rather than in the center of the house. But experiment -- I've heard of cases where there was a very weak signal, and the problem was that the router was TOO close to the computer.

  2. Avoid Bad Neighbors - Remember, wifi is a radio signal, so the signals from microwave ovens, cordless phones and even your neighbor's wireless router may interfere. So try to steer clear of those as well.

  3. Extend the Antenna - There are some decent booster antennas out there that you can purchase in addition to your current router to help the signal extend out further. You just plug them directly into the router base and it can give you that boost in the signal that you need. Hawking makes several types of wireless antenna boosters.

  4. Repeaters - This little gizmo just takes in the wireless signal, boosts it up to full strength, and spits it back out again. Place the repeater within range of the router, and near the computer that needs a wireless signal. Linksys and D-link offer wireless repeaters, also called range extenders. If you have an Apple computer, look into the Airport Express as a signal repeater.

  5. Gettin' Geeky - Some DIY geeks have come up with interesting ways to extend or boost your Wi Fi signal. One example is the Pringle Cantenna method. This may seem like a hoax, but the technique appeared in an O'Reilly book titled Building Wireless Community Networks, Nov. 2001. Other techniques, such as the satellite dish using a cellphone are elaborate hoaxes, and I'll admit I fell for this one before a kind reader set me straight.

  6. Upgrade Your Router - If you've owned the same router for several years, it might be good to go pick up a new one if you want to expand your connection. Some of the latest models have a stronger signal. The newer 802.11n routers generally have a stronger broadcast signal, and they'll work even if you have an 802.11B or G adapter in your computer.

  7. Upgrade Your Software - One of the most basic things you can do is to make sure your router software is up to date. To do this, visit the website of the maker of your router, whether it is Linksys, D-Link, or some other brand. Check for your model number and make any updates necessary.

  8. Tweak Your Settings - Your software has special features that you may or may not want. Make sure you read the manual that comes with your router and tweak it to fit your needs. Most modern ones are "just plug it in" though there might be ways to boost signals or to make sure it is sending out signals that are optimized for your computer's wireless adapter. For example, most routers are set to broadcast on channel 6. Try switching the channel to 1 or 11 and see if it makes a difference.

  9. Is Your Wireless Router Secured? - Make sure your neighbor isn't hogging all the juice from YOUR wireless router. Get your network secured only you are using the signal. Tap into your security features and make sure you use secure passwords. See wireless security for help with this.

  10. Find Alternative Firmware - While your router's original software (aka firmware) should be all you need, some routers do not output the signal at the maximum possible strength. You might want to check into alternative firmware, like OpenWRT. But be careful with firmware updates -- if you load the wrong code for your router, you can foul it up with no recourse.

How to replace a IDE Hard Drive


The following tip is a step by step instruction guide to replace your IDE Hard drive.

Before you start working with any of the Computer hardware, you need tobe sure that your computer is switched off. Also, unplug your computerfrom all cables.

Once you are done with the above steps, you need to open your computercase at the side on which the motherboard is not situated. This isusually done by unscrewing the 2 screws at the back of the panel.

Now slide away the panel gently and expose the inside of your computer.
You will be able to see a clear view of the hard drive. You will also be able to see the screws which holds the hard drive in place. There is usually only 2 screws, but if you unscrew the 2 screws and the hard drive is still attached to the case, you need to unscrew the other side panel as well to unscrew these other 2 screw.

When you are done unscrewing the hard drive, you can gently remove it from the hard drive slot.

Now, unplug the cables from the hard drive. you will just plug this cables back into the new hard drive. Just remember, if you plug in the new hard drive, you need to check the jumper settings. If this is the only drive, and you want to install the Operating system on this drive, it needs to be set to primary. Otherwise, to secondary.

After you have checked the jumper settings, you can plug back the Hard drive and just reverse the previous steps.

I really hope this can steer you in the right directions.

Kind regards
Andrea

I dont know the wifi password -windows 7 of my broadband


When you power up the wireless router and the LEDs are ON then the router appears to be OK and this also applies to the DSL or cable wireless modem. To check if the modem is configured to your ISP settings and the modem connects to the Internet, connect the modem with a LAN cable to your laptop and check if you can get into the Internet. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router. To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1, Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

What do I need to be set up for wifi? I ahve windows XP. I've never had wifi, we have a cable modem.


A wireless card or device for the computer and a wireless router. You maybe able to connect, and most likely will, a second router to the cable modem to take your signal wireless. The computer will need a card or USB device connected to it so it can use the WiFi network your going to create. Once you have the device and router in place follow the Setup directions for creating a home network in Windows. There is actually a wizard in the network center to assist you with this in windows.

Attempting to reset router, forgot password have a new wireless card will not connect. can not open http://192.168.1.1


Hi dprude;
what model is your router? do you remember placing a new password into it? if yes, you might want to do a hard reset, (pressing the reset button at the back of your router to 10seconds) in order to get the default password back but just make sure you know all the settings before doing so because everything will be erased.

try this site for default passwords:

My laptop has suddenly stopped picking up the wireless signal from our Belkin router so I cannot work online. I have tried everything I know of to try and get it working short of going to the online site...


Try disabling your WiFi switch and turn it on again, if this doesn't help, try uninstalling the WiFi Driver and re-install it. Sometimes placing your laptop too far from your Router gives you a weak or sometimes no signal, when solving this problem please make sure you were near enough to your router.

Can't remember 13 digit WEP code for Linksys router. I am creating seperate accounts on Windows XP laptop and each account has to have a seperate setup to get to the router. How to find the original WEP...


hi dear

try this


On windows
Start-->Run
cmd
ipconfig /all

write down the IP address of the Default Gateway on your Local Area Network Adapter.

Open your web browser and type http://{IP address of Default Gateway}
ie http://192.168.0.1

The Web Administration Username and Password should be
Username: admin and the Password should be left blank by default.

Enable the DHCP server on the router. Save the settings.

Now enable the Wireless radio and give it a name (SSID) and use encryption (64-Bit WEP is sufficient). Give it a 5 character password and REMEMBER IT (make it easy to remember like the first 5 digits or your phone number or your street address). Save the settings and the router should reboot.

Now plug the WAN the cat5 cable into the modem and then other end into the router's WAN port. Cycle the power on the router.

Wait about 30 seconds.
Go to the laptop of WiFi desktop and enable the WiFi connection and scan for WiFi networks. Connect to your (the SSID you entered) then type in the password and you should be good.

You can always use a cat5 ethernet cable and plug it into one of the 4 switch ports on the router to get a more reliable connection.

oke
