You may have some setting incorrect in your wireless router. What I would suggest that you do is reset the router and adjust your settings correctly.

This should take no more than 10 minutes and you'll be as good as new.

Here is a Tip I wrote up on how to do exactly that.

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

There must be a small reset button on your router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Release it. wait for one minute. Now unplug the power and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute.
Once you reset the router, it will come back to factory default settings.
You will need to reconfigure the router form the start according to your Internet service provider.

Only one computer at a time can connect to the internet. Both computers are connected to wireless internet via the router.


Make sure that the modem is connected to the Internet port of the router.
If it is connected to the Internet port and still only one computer is able to go on line then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.

Internet intermittently going down


Hello,

Before going out and buying a new router, you should try reseting this one.

There should be a small pin hole on the back of the router, stick a pin in there to set it back to factory settings.

You can also check the WAN connection to make sure it isn't loose.

Thanks,

Pat

My netgear rangemax does not emit a steady wifi signal. if i plug in my computer, the internet is working fine. all of the lights are on on the router. The wifi network shows up for a few minutes, goes...


Intermittent wireless connection can be caused by different factors, such as:

1. Wireless interference within the network. For best results, place your router:
- near the center of the area in which your computers will operate.
- in an elevated location such as a high shelf where the wirelessly connected computers have line-of-sight access (even if through walls).
- away from sources of interference, such as microwaves, and 2.4 GHz cordless phones.
- away from large metal surfaces.

2. Wireless settings on the router are still set to default. This may cause conflict with other Netgear routers within your network range.
- change the router's SSID or wireless network name.
- change the router's channel.
- enable wireless security on the router.

3. If the wireless connection is still unstable after performing the steps above, it is possible that the firmware is corrupted. Upgrade the router's firmware.

type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Set WAN settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP .
Click on wireless and enable wi fi.

Also change channel type in wireless option 4,6 and 11 channel are best.
Try 1 by 1 then save settings and restart router.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Linksys WRT54G - Can't reach certain websites / email


See if you can surf by ip address. Go here:
http://myip.unicorn-webdesign.de/urltoip.php

Then try to get to the site.....if so, you have a dns problem. Check the dns servers that are listed in the router. If it is set to static, change to auto obtain dns servers. You may also be able to add another dns server which may fix the issue. Try one of these:

Cant access internet (e-mails), possible dns error,and Domain Name Server may be down. Pinged remote host but no response


Sounds like either a cable has come unplugged/broken, the router/modem is on its way out, or your DNS cache needs to be cleared.
In this order:
Unplug the modem and/or router power cords. While unplugged, make sure the cat5 cables are connected securely(if using wired net).
Wait about 30 seconds to a minute, then plug the modem and/or router back in.

Test your internet connection.

If there still no connection to the internet, Click Ctar>Run, type in cmd, hit enter. This opens the command prompt.
On the black screen, type in ipconfig/flushdns
Close the command prompt, and re-test your internet connection.

If it still fails, verify with your ISP that your internet connection is active, and try a different router and/or modem.
