What is Limited Connectivity and how do I stop it??


Usually it means an issue with the router or modem and happens here--computer will with wireless show connected but limited connectivity--this depends on where you are or who your provider is= out here our solution is to from time to time reset the router (unplug it for a minute and plug it back) or call the provider to check things remotely.

Stopping it is a different issue---if using the phone line with a modem and a two wire system this kind of problem is endemic.

Cable systems for signal rarely have this issue but anything using the phone for DSL is prone to this.

Sometimes if reset the router does not work it is the provider having a problem or too many users on a limited line---

How to put a password on linksys router to stop others from seeing what is on my computers


Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

Wireless router has stopped working


Unplug the router for 10 seconds, then reconnect everything. After plugging it back in, look at the back of the router. Immediately to the left of the antenna is a little hole where a factory reset button resides. You may need to use a pencil or pen to push it in, but push and hold for about 5 seconds. This will reset it back to factory defaults, which should get you connected.

How to install a wireless care to the aspire x1700


If you are trying to install a wireless network card on an Aspire x1700?
1. Go to Wal-Mart or local computer store and purchase a USB Wireless Network Adapter.
2. Get home and install the cd, then plug the device in after installing the software first. You must install the CD with the software before you plug in the USB hardware in the rear USB slot.
3. Reboot
4. Your wireless software should start with the next boot, if not in the system tray (clock) You will see bars, such like on a cell phone, and right click on this to choose View Available Networks.
5. You can connect to nearby routers which are recognized as "access points". Then click connect, after choosing a network to join.

Wireless connection stopped working


You may have a not very friendly neighbor, who has changed your setup in the router.
But, - you have the router, - what you have to do, is to find the "reset" on the back of the router, press and hold for about 30 seconds, and you have reset it to factory standard.
DO SET THE ADMIN password as the first thing you do, as this is why you neighbor could access your router.
THEN set some kind of security, to keep your neighbor from using your connection....
I will gladly help you with that to.

- do vote, as this IS helpful :-)

My laptop has vista installed via usb from virgin cable modem.what must i do to install a belkin wireless g mimo router using ethernet connection?


Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?

Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"

If that is the actual question, here is the answer:

1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer.
2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable.
3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable.
4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.

(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)

Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.

(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)

Belkin n wireless


Open the router control panel using Internet Explorer. Open wireless page and look for security option. Simplest security measure is setting up a 64b wep encription key it is made of 10 exadecimal numbers (0..9-A..F). It is still a good option to secure home based network. Refer to the router manual for information on how to open the router control panel using internet explorer. Remember to save all changes made to the router before restarting it.

Hope it may help!
