SOURCE: Laptop can't find access point!

Some laptops come with a button\switch or use key combination to turn on or off the wireless(to conserve power)! Refer to your user manual for exact instructions! If that didn't solve the situation then it could be your actual wireless card within the laptop is giving trouble! regards, babb

go for the default ip address like 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.0.1 this default ip address you just try to go the router or access point page and then just configure it through the user manual in the CD try it.

SOURCE: How to setup internet between 2 EnGenius EOC-2610 devices?

Thanks for a very thorough problem report. It's a little ambiguous near the end, though, so I will have to restate what I think I understand you are saying.
You are saying that you have your internet connection and AP in one building, and two devices or PCs in that building can access the internet and share files (though you don't specify if they are using the EOC-2610 access point or are just accessing the router in some other fashion). But you have a remote building where there is one PC and one EOC-2610 in Client Bridge mode, and although both EOC-2610 units seem to be communicating with each other, the PC will not communicate with anything. (I presume you have inspected the access point's configuration screens and verified that it does have the other EOC-2610 listed as a connected client.)
First, the PC in the remote building has to be connected to the Client Bridge EOC-2610 by its ethernet cable in order to access the network. Second, the PC in the remote building has to have a valid IP address in the range 192.168.0.0/24, or it won't communicate with anything. If you are relying on your router's DHCP to assign your PC an IP address, verify that this has happened by examining your PC network properties. If you are assigning all IP addresses manually, make sure you have assigned the PC an address, and one that doesn't duplicate some other device.
Sometimes failure to specify DNS servers appears to be a lack of communication with the network. Open a browser and type 66.70.119.204 in the URL bar. If you get to fixya.com, you have a good network connection. If you type fixya.com in the URL bar and can't get the same result, you need to define DNS servers on the PC (or inside your router).

Weak wifi signal?


you have 2 possible solutions:
the easiest (but suboptimal) is to put buy a wireless repeater and install it half way between your access point and the point where you experience low coverage.

the best solutions is to buy a power line kit like this:
Amazon com NETGEAR PowerLINE 1000 Mbps WiFi 802 11ac 1 Gigabit Port...

you can plug the one without the wifi to a power outlet near your wireless router, and connect the two devices by a network cable. then you can plug the second powerline (the one with the antennas) in a power outlet near the place where you need wifi signal. the second device needs a little configuration (just put same network name and password of your old access point).
this way you will have your a new wifi access point, that will connect to your internet connection by power wires in your house.

My ipad 2 will connect but the load time is very slow


Your throughput (speed) is limited by the speed of the service from your provider. Additionally, this speed is divided or shared with every device connected via network cable and devices that are connected wirelessly, too.

To make matters worse, while the wireless N standard provides a faster speed, it only does so at a closer distance. When further away from the router, you may actually get better speed by connecting to the G side of the router (assuming you have G enabled).

Proper router configuration is key. Make sure you haven't locked it down to a slow speed. Install additional wireless access points or upgrade antennas with those that offer higher gain to provide good coverage in your home / space. Locate the wireless routers and access points closest to the areas these drevices will likely be used. Avoid installing in basements, behind brick and concrete walls. Aluminum siding can thwart a signal pretty well, too. Unplug / replace cordless phones that run on 2.4GHz - they can rob bandwidth from your router in the form of interference. Select Ch 1, 6 or 11 for the least interference from other wireless devices as long as they are not already in use by someone close by. Protect your WiFi by NOT broadcasting your SSID and be sure to lock it down with WPA or WPA2 security and a password that does not appear in the dictionary. This will help keep others from stealing your WiFi bandwidth.

All of these suggestions will either increase your throughput / speed or provide additional security and prevent others from stealing your bandwidth. I hope they help!

My Sony Bravia HDTV 3D Internet ready will connect to Internet but will not stream a movie ?


Chech the setup instructiond once again for this type of connection. If you cannot get a signal connect the RJ45 internet cable to a laptop to see if you can stream on that device. If no, then check to see if you can actually access the internet, could be a bad patch cable. If you can access the internet and stream on the laptop then it can be a bad RJ45 input sloth in the TV audio visual board. It would need to be replaced. Do this one step at a time. Finally if you cannot stream on the laptop or the TV , this could be a low signal data stream provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider).

Weak signal on pci card


The signal strength for wireless devices depends on a number of factors including:
The distance from the wireless router / access point or gateway.
The objects in the path of the direct line of sight signal, i.e. types and thickness of walls, metal objects such as kitchen appliances etc.
The directional characteristics of the aerial on the router / access point.
The physical position of the router, i.e. is is low down or high up in the room - the best position would normally be at a height which gives the best / clearest footprint for the wireless signal.

Do you have other wireless devices - what is the signal strength like for those when positioned close to the device with the Ralink PCI card?

How many wireless provider devices do you have, i.e. do you just have the one wireless router / access point or have you extended your wireless network using a second router or access point to give greater coverage?

Are there other competing wireless networks close to your own network, if so, you may need to consider setting a different channel than the default channel 11 that many devices use.

Also try to keep your computer wireless devices away from other devices such as wireless telephones, wireless remote controls etc.

Note: the slot used to host the PCI wireless card is unlikely to make any difference as the physical location of the aerial is only minimally changed by a couple of centimetres. Try rotating the computer case so that the aerial is directly facing the wireless router (to remove the case as another cause of weakening the signal being received).

How i access internet in linux rhel 4 by my motorazr v3i


But there is a software i would personally recommend to you.

Name of software is "Sakis3g". It can connect to mobile phones and other mobile devices which can be detected by linux kernel. You can use IR, Bluetooth, even USB cable to connect to your device.

You can use this software for the following



  1. connect to mobile devices by IR, bluetooth, USB Cable
  2. Send and receive files between computer and device
  3. Access Internet from Device by Dial Up Networking
  4. Browse files on Mobile device
  5. Mount the mobile device on a user specified mount point or communication port.
    Usually it mounts connected mobile device to /dev/rfcomm0. Through this port, you can communicate with the device .
  6. Connect to USB Modem (Like Reliance DataConnect, TATA Photon, IDEA Netsetter etc.)
  7. ability to connect to any locked/unlocked USB Internet Modems (Zero Devices)
  8. fully automated connection setup. No manual input is needed except to specify connection name.




You can find more details and download Sakis3g from this address

Sakis3g Homepage may not specify anything about connecting a mobile phone to computer and using it as an Internet Modem, but trust me its possible. Meanwhile I'm posting this by using DUN with the help of this script.
  • Just Run the script
  • choose Connect
  • Select Bluetooth
  • It will search for a new bluetooth device
  • Once your phone is detected, Select it and press ok
  • when it asks for APN (Access Point Name) provide it
  • When it asks for user name and password, Provide it. If your service provider do not need any username and password to access internet , Don't just leave it as blank (Program doesn't accepts empty user name and password. you just press space and enter)
  • Once all necessary informations are entered program may simply closes. Don't worry your connection manager will show this new connection entry.

  • To Disconnect the connection , you can select Disconnect option in Sakis3g.

hope this will help you to solve your issue.

What is wifi


Hi,
Wireless local area network is a local area network that uses high frequency radio signals to transmit and receive data over distances of a few hundred feet, uses ethernet protocol.

In simple word allow you to surf internet without any internet cable connection, Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, smartphone or digital audio player can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points called hotspots, can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.


Thanks....!!!

the error code means; "Cannot connect to the access point for an unknown reason"
Basically it means you are going to need to reconfigure the access point settings

Make sure the security key in the connection settings matches that of the access point. If this error code occurs even after connections are allowed, the wireless signals may be too weak at your location. Try moving closer to your access point, and make sure there are no people, objects, or other obstacles between the system and the access point. When connecting to an Internet hot-spot for which a proprietary security key has been set, make sure you configure your connection
setting.

if this does not work its a possibility that the access point has reached a maximum number of connections and is unable to connect to your device. Try again later to see if it will allow you to connect.

Weak signal recption


Since wireless networks use radio waves to transmit signals, it’s possible that typical household electronics-your microwave, cordless phone or even the baby monitor- can interfere with this signal. Make sure you move your wireless router away from those devices that use the same 2.4GHz frequency range.
Other causes of interference are brick and cinder block walls, metal doors, metal frames around windows and doors, and metal filing cabinets.
Take these simple steps to reduce wireless interference:
  1. Move the router further away from the interfering device or object.
  2. If there is interference with a phone, you can change the channel of the phone or the Router so they use different channels. If there is still too much interference, you may have to buy a different phone system, operating at either 900MHz or 5GHz.
  3. Place the wireless router in a central location of your house, such as a family room or office.
  4. Arrange the desktop or laptop’s wireless antenna so that it points toward the wireless router.
  5. Avoid placing the antenna close to an outside wall (unless outside is where you want to be). If you want to connect while you’re outside, place the router near a window.
  6. Place your Access Point as high as possible. If your network goes through multiple floors, try to place the Access Point on the upper floor

Edimax IEEE 802.11g 54Mbps won't stay connected to the internet.


your firewall may be attempting to keep out an intruder and inadvertently killing your connection to aid in the process, if you're using a shared Wireless Access Point or WAP there may be a conflict which is causing the problem whenever someone else logs onto the wireless access point. is this an access point that is close to you (in the same room or building) or is it an access point that you share with a group of people that is coming in from outside your immediate area? because if it is either the second scenario it may be weak signal strength in which case you'll be able to tell simply by getting closer to the access point and see if you lose your signal, if you don't lose your signal after getting closer to the access point you'll know it's the signal strength and you may need to get a stronger wireless card or see about extending the range on the one you have.

let me know
