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

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.

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

My computers are picking up the wireless but can't connect to the internet


It's a good thing that your computers are picking up the Wifi connection. But the connection to the Internet is another matter. Call tech support of your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to make sure that your Modem (Cable or DSL) is configured to connect to the Internet at all.

I lost wireless internet when i connect internet from my modem to computer it works but the router shows no internet the computer picks up the router and the computer says it is connected wirless but not


Did you at one time have internet? Another thing that it could be is that your modem is going out. I would test the modem and see if it works, then connect to then try connecting it back to the router and restarting both your modem and router. And finally it may be actually be disconnected in the setup so look at your setup on the setup screen by opening internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1 then configure your router's connection one more time.

Wireless broadband connection dropping all the time


Hi
There are a number of things that can cause this. The most common as as follows.
1) Either your computer or wireless modem is being effected by mains interference. Make sure that all power cables are clear of your modem and computer, except those essential to run the units.

2) Your computer is picking up another local wireless modem signal on the same channel. Try changing channels.

3) Your modem drivers need updating. Visit the manufacturer's website and download the latest driver.

4) Your computer is too far away from your wireless modem.

There are numerous other reasons, but it is worth trying the obvious first. The most common of all is mains or power cable interference.

Keep getting 800 error stating network error and it disconnects. ps3 is 2 feet from access point, 100% signal and I have reset modem twice and have a signal booster in the house?


If you are using wireless connection that could be your problem. Wireless isnt to stable for connection, but it depends on your environment(where you live). You could have a slow internet connection in your environment.

Setting up a wireless router


first you have to check the ip address of the dsl modem you used and see to it that it is not the same ip address of the router to avoid conflict. the default ip address of dlink router is 192.168.0.1.if in case your dsl modem has the same ip address with the router, you have to change firs the ip address of the router before connecting the router to your dsl modem.
next you need to know your internet connection whether it is DYNAMIC or PPPOE, depending on how your internet provider configured your modem. for PPPOE connection, you have to know the USERNAME and PASSWORD that your provider provides you.
good luck.
