Could it be both wireless from router and access point broadcast with same channel (either 1, 6, or 11) If you don't need wireless broadcast from router, log on to router and disable it. You will then be fine.

Slow connection low signal


If a wireless network has low signal strength, the transfer of information across the network could be slow or you might not be able to access certain parts of the network. Here are solutions to some common problems with low wireless signal strength: Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point. Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If your 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 the 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: o Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated. o Reset the router or access point by turning it off, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then turning it back on. If you don't own the access point or don't manage the network, contact the network administrator. There is interference from other devices. If you have 802.11b or 802.11g network hardware, it uses the 2.4 gigahertz (GHz) frequency. Other devices that use this frequency include microwave ovens and cordless phones. If you have 802.11a network hardware, it uses the 5 GHz frequency. Some cordless phones also use this frequency. These devices can cause interference between your computer and the network. There are two things you can try in this situation: o If any devices like these are near your computer, turn them off temporarily or move them farther away. o Change the router or access point settings to use a different wireless channel, or set the channel to be selected automatically if it's set to a fixed channel number. Sometimes one wireless channel is clearer than others. In the United States and Canada, you can use channels 1, 6, and 11. Check the information that came with your access point or router for instructions about setting the wireless signal channel. The network you're looking for is set to not broadcast its network name (SSID). Wireless routers and access points can be set up so that they don't broadcast the network name. In this case, you can't detect that the network is in range (in order to connect to it) unless you've previously connected to the network or you manually connect to the network using the service set identifier (SSID). To connect to a network that's not broadcasting, follow these steps: 1. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon ( or ) in the notification area. 2. Click Unnamed Network, and then type the network information. The network will be added to your list of networks and will be available to connect to in the future when your computer is in range of the network.

A router/access point channel conflict. What is this as I have no idea what to do.


There are 11 wireless 'channels' in the US that a wifi router/access point, can be set to.

Sadly the vast majority of the MFRs of these devices have decided to set the "default" channel to 6. Which is fine when there are relatively small numbers of these devices out there....however that number grows daily and is accelerating.
If there are more than a few of these devices nearby that are using the same channel, AND have similar signal strengths from wherever you are to the Router/AP device in question, then the system can be unable, (or nearly-so,) to reach through the "bad" traffic to talk to your Router/AP.
You need to Log-in to your Wireless Router or Access Point device and change the 'channel' it is using to one that is, (at least,) THREE numbers away from what it is now, (in either direction-higher or lower.)

My router is causing interference to my remote camera in bird box can I change channels on my router


Yes you can. And default channels often conflict with cordless landline phones, even your neighbors....

Try channel 11, almost always works. I suggest that you use the setup program from NetGear, but here are the highlights of what I suggest that you set:

Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID.

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

How many computers can the router handle?


The 2701hg-b Wireless Access Point (WAP) has 4 ethernet connections, that's the physical limit, for that, unless you "cascade" a bridge or another router off of a port.

It also supports wireless. I know of no documented limit as to the number of concurrent wireless connections... there probably is one, but it isn't "published", that I know of.

The "real" limits on the wireless side are "activity" and "channel" conflicts.

The "activity" conflict factor has to do with how much somebody/anybody is using "doing" with your WAP. Sooner or later, you'll see "saturation" of the wireless bandwith.

The "channel" conflict factor usually occurs when there are two (or more) WAPs (or other wireless devices) within "range", that are using the same "wireless channel".

From the "user" perspective, the effects of "conflict" are similar to "saturation", except that you'll likely see more "dropped connections" with "conflict".

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.

I am running qwest DSL through a Linksys wrt160N that is brand new. it will work next to the router, but not upstairs or in the basement which is less than 15 meters. The upstairs bedroom is directly above...


If you have concrete floor slabs the the wireless signal from the Linksys will have a difficult time penetrating the floor slabs.
The wireless card in the computers will show a low signal strength.
Try altering the Linksys aerial to a horizontal position and also positioning the Linksys to another location.

You could be getting interference form other wireless sources, check the wireless channels of other wireless router/access points in your area. If they are broadcasting on the same channel then configure your Linksys to broadcast on an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength.
If none of these methods work then I would suggest you run network cables from the Linksys to upstairs and downstairs and not use the wireless connection.
If network cabling option is not an option then consider extending the wireless range with wireless repeater access points.

Temporarily connect to the router with a cable and reconfigure it to use a different wireless channel. While you're there, this is a good time to change your security mode - WEP is dangerously weak and you should switch to WPA unless you have a very good reason not to.

If all else fails, there's a reset switch (hidden inside a hole) on the back of the router.

THERE IS AN IP ADDRESS CONFLICT WITH ANITHER


Identify the peripheral conflicting with the router and change the network address on one of the two. Their setup programs should give you the possibility to do so. The address should look like: 192.168.2.x

Dynex Wireless G USB Network Adpater Locks up Vista Computer


There is a port, Memory range, or IRQ conflict between the two units (printer and network adapter. You need to go to:
Control Panel>System Maintenance>System>Device Manager check the 2 parts you are having trouble with, they might be in the "?" area. You can also delete the network adapter here and that might fix your printer problem, if not you will have to delete and re-install the printer. It is possible that these 2 units will not work together. If you do re-install the network adapter try to do it with the advanced options so you can change to parameters.

Hope I helped...

The capability of your network adapter does not match the requirements of the network


Sounds like driver related problem to me. Re install the driver by using your installation CD, or simply download this tool Driver Update Software for XP Vista 7 8 and make the update. Cheers
