Wiil not connect to wireless internet it says limmited acess


i assume you are near the router ? if so, make sure the router is sitting up on a desk and not on the floor : keep close distance and ensure the antenna(s) are up . If the signal strength is normal (coming from the router), try resetting the router by unplugging power and wait 1 minute before plugging back in. Make sure the router has appropriate signal strength by checking the ethernet cables (make sure there are no cuts or bad bends or severed connections. try changing all cables. if the router has one antenna, you may have to get one with antennas to allow boosted signal. make sure the pass phrase is correct with upper or lower case alphanumeric code.

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.

connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

My laptop cannot connect to it, it says the signle is to low but my laptop is next to it. please help and try to fix this problem thank you :)


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Regarding your concern, placing a computer right next to the router is not a very good idea. Why? because it is a source of EMI (Electro-Magetic Interference), which causes:
>Inability to connect
>Intermittent Connection
>Undetected wireless signal
>and very poor wireless signal

Not only that, the equipments below are sources of EMI's
>Halogen Lamps
>Cellular phones
>Wireless phones
>Electronic Devices
>Fire Alarms
>Computer sitting on metal surfaces
>Computer sitting on carpeted floors

Here's a suggestion:
>Place the computer at least 6ft away from the router
>Make sure that there are no equipments mentioned above, within 3ft near the router
>Open a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, or Ubuntu) anything will do.
>Then access your router's page by typing on the address bar of your browser and hit Enter.
>Logon to your router by leaving the Username blank and in the Password box just type "admin" (without the quotation marks " " )
>Click on the Channels and SSID link under Wireless. (as shown below)
>The only thing you can play with wil be the channels.
>There only are 3 Clear Channels that you need to choose from. Channel 1, 6, and 11
>Switch channels between those 3 mentioned above and check which channel has the Excellent signal and save the settings by clicking Save below the page

Low signal on wireless DSL upstairs in my home

Keep in mind that a wireless router is a low-power radio station. As such, the same things that can affect any station may cause signal problems.

The biggest influence is location. The materials and construction techniques used in your home may be cutting into the signal strength, so you may need to relocate the router. The best place is somewhere centrally located, so the distance to any wireless computer is roughly the same. Sometimes moving the router just a foot or so can make a big difference.

It's also possible your wireless network is using the same radio channel as another in the vicinity, and interference is causing problems. Most wireless networks in the US and Canada use channels 1, 6 or 11, and channel 6 is a popular default channel for a router. Change your channel setting in the router, and this may help. (Note that the channel setting is in the router and not in your wireless computer. The adapter in the computer automatically switches channels so it can locate and connect to different networks.)

A third (and remote) possibility is that the wireless adapter in your computer isn't working properly. I have seen computers say low signal when they were in the same room as the router, and a new adapter was the cure. Try moving the router and switching channels first, though, as that will likely take care of the trouble.

The signal strength on my gigaset sx763 s705 c431 7 is too week to go through cinternal concrete walls. is there a solution

I have a similar problem. Placing the wireless router in the loft/attic is a logical solution with the antennas going horizontally so the omni-directional signal reaches down into the rooms of the house. To get to downstairs you may need a wireless repeater on the first floor to repeat the loft signal.

I have a broadband DSL modem/router in my home office. I also have 2 CAT5e ports there. I want to feed the Internet signal from the router (one of the ports on the back) through a CAT5e point up to my...

Hi Joe,

How are you connecting to the port in the back of your router? if you have crimped a male plug on to some UTP cable then this may be the problem. UTP cable has a solid condutor and needs a different male crimp plug than UTP patch cable, which has stranded conductors.

I suggest you connect the UTP cable between the office and the loft to an RJ45 wall or surface socket in the office, use a terminating tool designed for the make and type of outlet you use, i.e. if using an ADC socket use the ADC termination tool. The sockets are designed for solid cable and have a colour code for you to follow. Then use a factory terminated patch cord between this socket and the router port.

I assume you have terminated the cable from the office onto one of the patch panel ports and want to use a patch cord to patch from this incoming socket to the sockets that are terminated onto the cables going to your other rooms. If you have access to a laptop connect this directly into the router port and ensure you have an internet connection, then plug the patch cord connecting the loft port into the router and take the laptop into the loft and ensure you have a connection at the incoming port on the patch panel. If you get the connnection there then use a factory patch cord to patch to a room you would like a connection in and then take the laptop to that outlet and ensure you have a connection.

If you want to run outlets in multiple rooms without re-patching every time then you will need to have an active switch in your loft and connect the port from the office to this and then patch out of the switch ports to the various room outlets.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Jason
