    I found a radio shack wireless remote control extender in a thrift store and don't know how it works. It is a pyramid type. One has an antenna the other does not. There is a red light and a round connection on the one with the antenna. [email protected] Jerry

Hi,

To determine if your PC will simply not connect or if really your wireless AP/Router, please download NetStumbler, install and run. The software will determine if there is an AP within your immediate area (including yours/high signal strength), if there is & it is yours, then it is configuration problem, it none or some but weak (low signal/not yours) then it is a hardware problem and would most probably require replacement. Most of the time, the cost/time of repair would make the purchase of a new one more reasonable. If your Wireless Ap/Router was detected by NetStumbler, then perhaps what you need is to re-configure your system/set-up again.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional; information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My 2hp Panasonic is blinking when turn on and the compressor stop working while the outdoor fan will be blowing cool air.


1. Turn power on.
2. Press the CHECK button on the remote controller
continuously for 5 seconds.
3. "- -" will be displayed on the remote controller display.
Note: Display only for "- -". (No transmitting signal, no
receiving sound and no Power LED blinking.)
4. Press the "TIMER" or button on the remote
controller. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be
displayed and signal will be transmitted to the main
unit. The power LED lights up. If no abnormality is
stored in the memory, three beeps sound will be
heard.
5. Every press of the button (up or down) will increase
abnormality numbers and transmit abnormality code
signal to the main unit.
6. When the latest abnormality code on the main unit
and code transmitted from the remote controller are
matched, power LED will light up for 30 seconds and
a beep sound (continuously for 4 seconds) will be
heard. If no codes are matched, power LED will light
up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.

WIRELESS OUT OF RANGE


Move closer. That's not always an option though. Here are some tips to improve the range of wireless routers:

1) Locate the router higher in the building rather than lower (1st or second floor is better than a basement location).

2) Place the router in a location that will offer the least resistance to the signals - it is easier to pass wifi signals through gypsum board than it is for concrete / brick or walls with aluminum siding on them.

3) Change the antenna(s) on the router to a type that offers more gain. Typical router omni directional antennas offer 3dB to 5dB or gain - there are others that offer 7 dB or more of omnidirectional gain for reasonable prices. The antenna gain works for both transmit from and receive to the router.

4) if the device you wirsh to connect to the router is in one place, consider a directional Yagi antenna. These antennas concentrate the entire wifi signal in a direction that is 30 degrees wide and can allow the signal to be seen 5, 6 or even more times further in one direction - instead of being spread out over 360 degrees. These antennas cost a little more, but can solve the problem quickly.

5) Replace the manufacturer's stock firmware of selected routers with a 3rd party type such as DD-WRT or Tomato. Either of these will work with your Linksys WRT54G router. One of the benefits is the ability to boost output power of the wifi radio in the new settings the firmware offers. Read about both and decide if either is something you're comfortable doing.

6) Add additional wifi routers configured as a bridge or an access point to extend the wifi signal into an underserved area. DD-WRT supports bridging as shown here.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Remote was working fine.all of a sudden it stopped working.I put new batteries but still don't work.What could be the problem?


First of all check if the remote is working. How do we check the remote? Use your phone camera. While watching the LED in the remote through your mobile camera, press any remote button. You should see the LED flashing. You can't see the LED flashing by naked eye but with the help of camera you can. If the remote LED transmit the signal (if it flashes) then the remote is working fine. In this case your TV has the problem. If you can't see the LED flash, then your remote is the problem.
Open up your remote and check if there is dry or broken connection, or short connection.

No wi-fi signal transmitted


There is a reset button in the back of your router, which will reset it to all default settings. Try this to get the router to work.

Also is it hard wired into another computer? Check it out that way. make sure the router is working.

good luck

Wireless LED blinking, normal?


Same problem here - wireless light starts blinking and I get a network interruption. At that point, I have to walk across the house and downstairs to cycle the power on the router to get it working again. What a pain - and the manual doesn't even mention a blinking status for that light. I'm thinking about hooking the router up to a automated power switch (X12) so I can remotely cycle the power.
