Your problem may be the construction of your room and the walls may be blocking the signal from bouncing around. Try to move your wireless unit to different parts of the room for a better signal.

If you click on VIEW WIRELESS NETWORKS and you have more than one signal being picked up by your notebook, you may be connecting to your neighbors systems and you may have a "channel" issue. In order to change the channel, you need to know what kind of router you have. If Linksys, 2wire, Netgear. Each have a different way of accessing the router for configuration.

First you need to know where your router is located. Click on START, RUN, type CMD followed by either the ENTER key or the RETURN key. In the black box, type IPCONFIG/ALL and look for default gateway.

In the above example, the default gateway is 10.10.0.1. Enter whatever number you have into the address bar of your browser.

In the above example, my router is a D-Link at address 10.10.0.1. Your's may vary depending on the brand. In any case you will need to log into your router, go to the wireless section of your screen and there you should be able to change the default channel. In Linksys, this would be under the WIRELESS section. Again, you need to know your router. When you do get in, try setting your channel to channel 3, 7, or 8.

Keeps loosing wifi signal


Try resetting your wireless router. Power cycle it through.

Symptoms:
lost Internet access on all devices
unable to go online
no Internet connection on router
router Internet LED symbol is amber
To powercycle your home network:
Turn off the router by unplugging it. If you have a modem and router in one device, turn it off then proceed to step 3.
Turn off the DSL or cable modem for three minutes.
Note: Some modems are equipped with a backup battery. If your modem have one, please remove the backup battery to completely turn off your modem. For common cable modems equipped with backup batteries, please see Performing a full reset of cable modem with battery backup
Turn off all computers attached to your network.
Turn on the DSL or cable modem first and let it boot. Let it complete its connection to your ISP before proceeding to the next step. One of the indications that the modem have completed its connection is by seeing a green light on the modem. If you have a modem and router in one device, proceed to step 6 after it connects to your ISP.
Once the modem completes the connection to your ISP, plug in the router. Let it complete its power on test before proceeding to the next step.
Restart your computers.

What causing that the Wi-Fi connecting at Windows8 faled every few minutes.???


Hi
The normal cause for WiFi failing regularly, dropping out, is due to distance from the WiFi signal source. This distance is not just feet and inches but also dependant upon the nature of objects between the signal source and the receiver. I recently found a case where the signal source had been put behind a large modern TV, and the WiFi signal in the next room was so slow and intermittent that the internet was unusable. Moving the router in front of the TV (in a position where it did not obstruct the picture!!!) cured the problem and they now have fast WiFi internet.

Doesnt ask for password when connecting to wifi


Hello,

It might have been caused by an outdated internet card driver. Before doing anything, make sure that your wi fi is working. You can use a cellphone or any gadget or computer which can connect to your wifi connection. If it goes in without any problem, then do the following steps.

1. Do a system restore.

If you were to connect to the internet before using a wifi connection, then do a system restore and restore it back to the configuration when it was still working.

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

Follow the on-screen instructions. Select a restoration date when it was still working great. Launch the restore and let it restart by itself. Just wait for it.

Once it's up, check if it connects to the internet. If no go, then go to the next step.

2. Boot to Safe Mode with Networking

Restart your computer and tap F8 until you see the screen which asks you to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode with networking. Press Enter.

Try connecting to your wifi in safe mode. If no go, proceed to the next step.

3. Update your device drivers. Even if all works well. I mean all the two options above work, you still need to do this to avoid from getting the same problem in the future.

Install an automatic PC Drivers updater like RadarSync.

I hope this helps!

CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Cam connect


Try connecting to Wifi at a public access/non-secure location. Use the quick start guide procedures or goto www.digitalgadgets.com where they have a step-by-step and even a video demonstration.

If you can connect at a non-secure Wifi location then there is a good chance you don't remember the pass-phrase exactly right on your home wifi. You will have to change the pass-phrase on your home router and then change all the systems using it.

There are only a few ways to increase signal strength ..move closer to the source (the router) , get a bigger antenna or boost the signal...you can boost the signal with foil in the shape of a parabola around the router antenna or make one out of a vegatable strainer that will plug into the laptop(this one works best )especially for picking up your neighbors WIFI
