Try placing the router higher up, for example on top of a bookshelf. You may need to move the router closer to the center of your house.

I want to set up my wifi dvd player to one of the wifi connections and leave the other for my lap top. don't know how to use both of the wifi connections.


This is NOT a DVD player. The Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router WNDR3300 features a rather misleading name. The router doesn't support true dual-band wireless-N, nor does it offer very good range. It's a basic router with two separate access points (AP), one of which supports Wireless-N and can operate in either 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequencies--similar to the D-Link DGL-4500--while the other is a regular 802.11G 2.4GHz-only AP. The result is that when in dual-band mode the router is able to offer Wireless-N only in the 5Ghz frequency, while the 2.4Ghz frequency is maxed out at the 802.11G speed. Still, if you have a growing stable of 5Ghz-based devices and want a router that supports both frequencies, the WNDR3300 is the cheapest router on the market (at about $100) that will suit your needs.

While its max throughput is relatively low, the router offered very consistent and considerably high throughput speeds on both our mixed-mode and long-range throughput tests. Unfortunately, its range is possibly the shortest among Wireless-N routers. If range is not important to you and your network primarily consists of 5GHz-based clients, the WNDR330 is a good bet. Otherwise, for the same price, we'd recommend the 2.4GHz-only Linksys WRT310N; or you can pay $50 more for the true dual-band Linksys WRT610n.

I want to connect my lap top to a wireless Netgear


You need to do exactly that.

From your web browser type in 192.168.0.1 put in you user name and password.

Your control panel will come up then you got to wireless settings and turn it on and set a Wep key, write that down then rebboot the router or save the settings.

go to your lappy now and open up your wireless card on the tak bar and search for your netgear click on it then enter that key, You should be good.

Thanks please do leave ratings for all the tech involed in your case, thanks

Cant connect to the internet on my lap top


first thing is to identify the wireless settings of the router,you need to identify the wireless name (SSID), channel and the encryption you are getting from the airlink router. Next is to make sure that the wireless computer has enabled wireless signal/ or the wireless is on.

after that, you may connecting wirelessly to the computer, right click wireless connection and go to view available wireless networks, try to connect -input the encryption key from you wireless router or password and hit connect.

Belkin router, apple lap top and del Inspiron are the three I have in the house.How to connect the new computer to the router?


You should be able to hardwire (Ethernet cable) those pc's to the router. If it is wireless and you are not running cables directly from the router to the pc's, you have to have wireless cards installed in each of those computers in order to pick up the 802.11 wireless signal. The wireless software on the pc will find the router as long as the router is in range. If you have setup the router properly you should be fine. You may just need to power out and reboot the modem and router after connecting the pc's in order to assign new IP's to each computer receiving a wireless signal.

If you have any problems please respond with as much information as possible including model numbers and ISP provider.

My Belkin G Wireless Router cant even get passed step 1. My lap top recieves the signal but their is no internet! Help please


Since your unable to access internet through the router(wireless) ,& globe light is flashing--I suggest you to refresh the network list and connect to your network again still if it won't work then you need to Re- configure it. Because your Modem(cable/dsl) is working fine. Check the ip address of your computer. if its invalid then you need to do the "reset" on router (ip address should be 192.168.2... range).
Or else you can call (toll free number) for belkin for reconfiguration
Hope this suggestion helps for you both...

Need Advice On Linking 2 Pcs And A Wireless Lap Top


Pick up a linksys 4 port wireless Router. You will be able to run 4 wired devices and as many wireless devices as you desire. I run 2 desktops, a laptop a 4 in one wireless, print,fax,copy and scanner, along with 2 smart phones that run on wireless or 3g. And use them all sometimes without a hickup. We also play online games, my wife likes to shoot things online.The wired end is good for a desktop also, if you do banking, day trading etc. I work from home and have for over a decade, I have tried other routers, and this one for consumers is best as far as I amd concerned. Your modem pluges into thr router, you type in ,192.168.1.1, "the routers set up page" type in the info from your isp, "only a few items, like the ip and DNS" and select the security from one of the choices like "wep2", select a 10 digit encryption key, of your choosing, and that is about it. Good luck ,and maybe get your "stuff" from the sat company out so you have your settings handy, good luck
