You must change frequency... there must be to much interference, that is why it shuts off...

It could be interference in your area from microwave, cordless phone, or other wireless routers nearby. Try changing the router channel from 1,6, or 11. You could also try setting it up as mixed 802.11b,g,n

My connection through my 2wire pc port phoneline is extremely slow, the internet is very laggy, yet all the computers connected directly to the router through ethernet cables are very fast


This is because the adapter is ONLY 10Mbps you need a higher one 100Mbps or even 1000Mbps... That adapter is too old to be used on a high speed network, replace it with a faster one.

2wire ethernet and wireless lights blinking


They shouldn't become solid. Most lights blink when there is a communication between the devices. It's never a solid connection light.

I have a small problem with a Belkin N1 wireless router modem, we used to have a 2wire modem (basic telstra one with 1 ethernet prot) and that seemed to be faster than the new Blkin modem, when im running...


Very possible that the 2Wire is slower. I have had a ton of complaints about all kinds of 2Wire devices. As a suggestion though, check their tech support site to see if there may be a firmware or driver update for the modem. I had a Linksys router once that kept kicking me off and was crazy slow when it was up and working. A firmware patch fixed both.

Can't re-install 2Wire USB Wireless adapter


If you are on windows vista it could be your driver. You can go into safe mode on the computer with F8 while the computer is starting up, then go to the control panel and device manager. Plug the adapter in and remove the driver for it. Download a new driver at http://support.2wire.com/index.php?page=download and install it.

Apple extreme bridged to apple extreme (Windows network)


Hi,
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.

Is your desktop pc still working fine.., clear your preferred wireless networks in your laptop, try searching for the wireless network again, check if you are abe to pick up any other wireless network in your laptop, so that you can conclude whether the problem is with the laptop or the router..if not try reconfiguring your wireless settings in your wireless router and check it out ,that will fix your problem..all the best..

Speeding up internet


Here are a few suggestions on how to speed connection:

- Move router or pc location if possible. Closer = better connection usually

- Try changing the channel your router is broadcasting on. Sometimes there are slower channels and faster channels in heavy traffic area

- If you have any toolbars in your browser (i.e., yahoo or google), remove them. Those toolbars use up resources that can slow you down.

- Delete cookies and internet files

If these don't work, post a comment on here with your operating systems on laptop and desktop and router type.
