Hi,

If the old pc is using a wireless connection, the signal of the router is not enough to reach the room. If it is wired, the recommended length of the cable is 15 ft. If it is wireless check if there is a wireless adapter installed in the old pc you will need one to connect.

I have linksys 2.4 ghz + one 12' line. My new computer is in another room, 32 feet from cable modem how do I connect to internet?


I'm assuming that one computer isn't wife enabled. Depending on where the non wifi computer is located in relation to the router, you will need another either patch cable or a wifi adapter.

Moved the router to a different room and now it wont work


check the physical connection to the router. Make sure that the modem and computer are connected properly and there is no loose connection.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Check to make sure the lead are firmly connected to the wireless card. If they are make sure that they are reversed. Also if you have a neighbor next door that has a computer with wireless, see if it picks up your router, that way we can determine if it is a network or computer issue.

Set up


You have to install a wireless network card in your main PC, and then you can put the router anywhere that you want it.

Wireless Connection


The WPA code is the password to access the router's network, so it can use your internet connection. As long as the Xbox has both the SSID and the WPA password, it can access the internet through the router.

The SSID ( Chris_PC_Network ) is mostly irrelevant to the network connection, and is purely aesthetical. Its only use is to help users distinguish between different networks (so you don't use a neighbor's network or vice versa).

My 3 different mac laptops with airport can't connect to my wirless


Sounds like you might be accidentally connecting to a neighbour's network instead of your own. You need to go into your wireless settings on each laptop and tell them to connect to your own network.
