Wireless internet connection

Is there such a thing as a booster that I can pick up from a wireless modem about 200 feet away. I have a modem in the condo pool house and I can pick it up in my place but it is very weak. Is there something I can hook up to my computer to pick up the signal better

Im trying to fix workin offline i cant get it to go away


Also, "Work Offline" is a choice on the browser menu. Look at the "File" dropdown menu (Explorer and Firefox) and if its checked, uncheck it!

"Offline" means an active network is not connected to the computer. You do not have a working internet cable or wireless connection.
It could also be (in the case of Windows) that the drivers are messed up, and that is a can of worms, especially since the most helpful things are online.
Is another computer able to use the same internet connection that you are using? This is a fix that may take a long time of questions and answers because it involves so many breakable points.

Unable to connect to internet despite connection confirmed


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting.

I'm going to provide you with some generic approaches in an attempt to solve your problem.

First: Microsoft will perform a complete systems check for you in three clicks with their FixIt app. CLICK HERE and Microsoft will fix (repair) any Windows related problems that might be causing your problem.


Second: It is important to connect the modem to the router before you configure the modem in order to verify communication between them. If the cabling is incorrect, the rest of the process fails.

As a rule, external modems are built with a female data communications equipment (DCE) DB-25 port for connection to a controlling device such as a PC or a router

Connecting the modem using the network cable to the wrong port of the router (other than the WAN port) is easy to identify. You can easily troubleshoot the problem. In some cases, you may correctly setup the wireless router connection but you use the wrong cable type in connecting the modem to the router. Cross type UTP cable must be used in connecting the Ethernet port of the modem to the WAN port of the router. But this is not always true. Today, many types of wireless routers (and any LAN Switches) embedded their Ethernet ports (either WAN or LAN ports) with Auto-sensing type port (auto-MDIX LAN). It means that you can use either cross-type or straight-through-type network cable for the Ethernet port connections. The system will detect the cable type and automatically adjust the ports signal accordingly.

I hate to beat myself up, but I am a dummy about all the wireless capabilities and think my friends remotely hooking up to my internet and phone. How can I prove that this happening?


Don't worry yourself about it . Simply go into your modem settings or your wireless connection settings and secure the logon selection by having to enter a password to use the wireless modem. And don't give anyone the password !!!!!

Acer Travelmate 250 wireless problem


Dear carlosdperez,
When you try to connect to the internet, you must create the new internet connection first, this because you use the difrerent hardware or modem to connect to the net. All you have to do is configure the new connection use your UK SKY Sagem modem and fill all the required input include your dial up number and so on. This is HOW:

Start Menu>Connect To>Show All Connection>Create The New Connection>>>> Follow the wizard>PRESS Next>Connect To Internet>Setup Connection Manually>Choose your Hardware/Modem (UK SKY Sagem Modem)>Use Dial Up Modem>Enter Your Connection Name>Enter Your dial-up Numbers>Enter Your Passwords>Confirm>DONE.

Since it succeeded, you should see the new connection on Start Menu>Connect To>>>

Good Luck!
Best Regards,

Internet !


hello there!! thanks for using Fixya.com!

You know what, I had the same problem couple of months ago. But I suggest that you should enter manually the network settings for the WLAN internet connection.

You have a pretty common configuration and there's good and bad news. The good news is that yes, you can definitely get your Sony PSP onto the Internet with the setup you have. The bad news is that I'm not exactly right when I say "with the setup you have" because you're going to need to buy what's called a wireless router to connect.
Basically, the setup you have works like this:
highspeed Internet connection from service provider (BT in your case) connects to highspeed modem connects via Ethernet cable to your computer.

While you can configure the wireless network with a password, since the Sony PSP claims to support the various secure wireless protocols, my experience is that it never connects properly. Instead, I suggest you leave it password-free, though it's not particularly secure. If you have good neighbors, you're probably safe...

Or you may just simply:

Wireless network connection Step1Turn on the “WLAN” switch on your PSP when you are in range of a wireless access point. Step2Select the “Network” option on the “Home” menu. Step3Select the “Internet Browser” option and then press “X.” Step4Use the Up and Down direction buttons to select the address bar. Step5Press the Circle button to display the onscreen keyboard. Step6Use the onscreen keyboard to enter a Web address. Step7Select the “Enter” key and then press button “X.” Step8Select a connection and then press “X” to display the Web page. jQuery('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); good luck!

Ethernet


What you need to do is get and Internet ISP so you get on the internet. The Ethernet is the network you use to connect to a DSL or Cable modem to to use the Internet. You won't need to use the wireless unless your modem is wireless capable. The modems can also be used with a USB connection from the computer to the modem.
Hope this is of some help. Bud
