Hello There, are there any wireless computers that detects your router? If there is, most of the laptop computers has a built-in on/off (toggle) switch on the side to enable or disable the wireless card on your computer. Make sure it is "ON" then check if it will detect the wireless connection.
If it is a desktop, try to reboot the computer then check again. If none of the computers can detect your router, make sure that the wireless light on the router is lit up. You may also try changing the channel on the router.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If your computer has a wireless network adapter, Windows will automatically detect wireless networks in range of your computer. You can see a list of wireless networks that Windows has detected in Connect to a Network.
Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon ( or ) in the notification area.
If Windows doesn't detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one of the following reasons:
The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.
Many laptops have a wireless switch on the front or side of the computer. If your computer has a switch, make sure it's turned on. Some computers also use a function key combination to turn the switch on or off. Check the information that came with your computer for details on locating the wireless switch.
Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.
Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If the computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer.
If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than a built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna.
The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly.
There are two things to try:
Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated.
Reset the router or access point by unplugging it, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in.
i assume you have DSL connection through phone line . double check the cables see if they are connected properly betwee the modem and router etc ..if its all connected then reset your router by pressing littile tiny button at the back of Router and apply new WPA2 password and try connect .
If your message is like this " no wireless network found in range make sure wireless on the computer is On". All you need to do is look for the wireless switch usually located on the side or the back of your laptop. Sometimes its near the F keys or start button. You may check your laptop manual to see where to locate the wireless switch , or you can check the laptop manufacturers website usually they gave information on where to locate or enable the wireless feature of laptop.
You need to buy a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander to boost the signal
Move your wireless router to a central location in your network, keeping in mind that the router should be at waist level at the very least, not on the ground.
Plug in the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander in the room where your wireless router is. You'll move the range expander later, but for setup purposes, it should be in the same location as your wireless router.
Press the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander's "Auto Configuration" button for five seconds, which will allow the range expander to detect your wireless network and configure itself with the appropriate settings.
Unplug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and relocate it to a location closer to the Xbox 360.
Ensure that the antenna for the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander is pointing upward, and keep in mind that the higher the range expander is placed, the better performance you will get out of it.
Plug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander back in, and your wireless network should have a much greater range, ensuring that your Xbox 360 is able to maintain a good connection to the network.
In my experience being within 50 ft of various routers I have had seems to be the best singal strength. Any further then that I start having connection issues. So based on my experiences I would say the answer is No to your question. That is based on 'G' system routers. I have heard the 'N' routers have greater range and speed.
If your laptop has a wireless capability you should be able to connect to the wireless network of your router, just view the available wireless network select the wireless name of your router and connected to it if it already say connected try to disconnect the ethernet cable from your laptop and access the internet wirelessly..........
Perhaps the router is not broadcasting its SSID, therefore is invisible to would be tappers. Type 192.168.0.1 into a browser on a computer directly wired to the router, leave the username blank, if you havent changed it, the password is admin by default. Once logged in check that wireless is enabled and that you are broadcasting the ssid, you may want to setup/change security settings for the wireless connection at this time also.
