Network out of range

I am trying to connect to my secured wireless router, but receive an error message saying out of range, when my router is only 2 feet away. I can connect to an unsecured wireless network, but not a secured one. I was able to connect to a different secured network only two month ago, and them I moved and now I can't. Please help

    I am having the same problem with my laptop. I am able to connect to my WEP encrypted secure network at home, but when I am on my college campus, I cannot get onto the WPA2 secured network. I was able to install the SecureW2 client, but when I select the secured wireless connection from my connection manager, I get the 'wireless network out of range' message. I am able to connect to the unsecured network provided by my campus no problem, but not the secured connection. -I do not Have the Toshiba wireless adapter, but instead an Intel, possible indicates a software problem instead of hardware?

Im trying to get wi-fi connection on pokemon soul silver version and it keeps coming up with 'No access point in range. Move within Range.' I dont know how to do it can you help me?


Hi amberjones62,

You're receiving that error message that "No access point is in range. Move within Range." is because your Nintendo DS is not detecting any wireless signal. If you have a working computer with wireless capability try to check if your picking up any wireless signal. You might be too far from your router or your router is not sending a wireless signal. If you will be able to detect the wireless signal I've listed below the steps on how to access your router and how to configure your DS to connect to the internet wirelessly.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remember the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reason why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection.Rate me if this helps so that i can help others.

Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

Then save settings and then restart .
Also you can set ip addrese manualy but make sure it is in range with router.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.

CAN'T CONNECT TO WIRELESS ROUTER WITH LAPTOP.


Temporarily disable all security on the router AND your laptop wireless card and try again to test connectivity.

The exact error message should be:
"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you
on to the network [SSID]"

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it should30924e8.jpg work.

Also check to make sure that IEEE 802.1x authentication on the wireless network properties Authentication tab is disabled.
