Bluetooth adaptor disabled wireless internet connection


There are many things that can go wrong with a wireless connection, the main one is interference, many different objects and interfer with a wirless network, if you have a wireless g one then that takes away most of the possible interferences like the microwave, but bluetooth is a major interference, the only to ways of fixing this is to A. get rid of your bluetooth or B. replace your wireless g with a wireless g and n, g and n will ellimanate almost all interferences your current router can sell for a good amount(if you can prove its new and working i suggest you place it back in the box with manual and all) and by a g and n router how that works is it sends out 2 internet signals one g the other n and if one fails like your g then the n will kick in and run most of the internet but again you would have to get a new g and n router and get new wireless g and n software...or you could just not use your bluetooth.

How to connect to XboxLive via 1800HG 2WIRE+Linksys adaptor?


The easiest way to connect to Xbox Live without using your pc is to buy a
wireless network adapter for your Xbox.

You would then go into the system settings on the Xbox and configure the settings for your wireless network.

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet


Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Cheers!

Can not use internet wirelessly all the time with Linksys rangeplus wireless router


Sounds to me like your modem is hanging up on you. In the software to configure the modem tell it to stay connected all the time.

Can not use Internet with new Linksys rangeplus wireless router


Okay chances are your 2wire's ip address is conflicting with your router's ip address. Set up your router to use 192.168.2.1. Save the settings then everything should work for you.

Wireless channel


The ethernet cable connecting the router to the WAN doesn't require a channel. The channel setting is there for when laptop computer connects to the wireless router.

Channels 6 and 11 are mostly used in this scenario.

Does your wireless router communicate with your Internet provider wirelessly?


Hope this helps :) Please leave a rating. Thanks..
