Wifi settings

I had installed a periferal 802.g wifi dongle to extend the range for my notebook however even after a full uninstall and use of the default re-set I can no longer get the internal wifi to work. I have no network places where before the notebook automatically found a hotspot.

    Riziel, thanks for the tip but there was no red cross on the icon. The properties menu states it is working fine and checking for updates has not solved it either. Any further suggestions please?

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:

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.

Trying to setup my netgear wifi range extender


If you look on the back of the unit, it should have in small print, the access IP address, the admin name and admin password. If you have changed it in the past, then reset it back to the default. Typically netgear use 192.168.0.1, admin name of admin, and the password is either password or netgear1. Older units may use 1234. The only exceptions are newer extenders that ask you to put in a password when you set it up, in which can you will need to reset it to the defaults and do a new setup.

How to set up netgear ex6100 wifi range extender


Overview:
This article describes how to set up a NETGEAR EX6100 in Extender Mode
The extender connects wirelessly to your existing WiFi network, and then it creates a new WiFi extended network and links the two WiFi networks.
Symptoms:
Cannot connect to extender
Extender broadcasting EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT
Extender broadcasting EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT
Extender cannot access Internet or network
Process:
1. Place your extender in the same room as your WiFi router.
2. Plug the extender into an electric outlet and wait one minute.The PowerLED lights green.
If the Power LED does not light, press the Power button on the side.
3. Make sure that the mode switch on the extender is set to Extender.
4. Use a WiFi network utility on a computer or mobile device to find and connect to the EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT or EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT (SSID) WiFi network.
Note: EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT and EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT are the default name of your extender's wireless networks, and by default it is unsecured. If you changed the wireless name or security in the past, connect to the new name or enter the passphrase when prompted. EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT is only visible if your wireless adapter is 5 GHz capable.
After the wireless connection with the computer or mobile device is established, the Client Link LED lights solid green.
5. Open a web browser window from the same computer or mobile device.The browser takes you directly to NETGEAR genie Smart Setup.
Note: If you are not automatically directed to NETGEAR genie, launch an Internet browser and type www.mywifiext.net in the address field of the browser. Enter admin for the user name and password for the password.

9. Select Private Network(home network) or Public Network radio button, and click Continue.
Note: Selecting Public Network will enable NAT and DHCP on the EX6100. For more info on NAT refer to: What is NAT (Network Address Translation)?
10. Type the name (SSID) for your WiFi extended network in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz Network Name (SSID) field and click the Continue button.
Note: You can use the same security settings as your existing network by selecting the Use the same security mode check box.
The WiFi extended network settings are applied.
11. Use a WiFi network manager on a mobile device or computer to connect to the extenders newly created WiFi network.
12. Click on the check box and click on Continue to finalize the installation.
13. Unplug the extender and move it to a new location closer to the area with a poor WiFi signal.
Note: The location you choose must be within the range of your existing WiFi router network.
14. Plug the extender into an electrical outlet and wait one minute. The Power LED lights green. Connect to the extender network and enjoy the extended Wifi network.

Bush tv says connected to internet but when i press the button to go online it tells me i am not connected and check setting


This happened to me and finally I got the TV close enough to the router for it to work (guess some built-in WiFi hardware in some TVs is not very good). You could also install a range extender for your WiFi if you don't want to move the TV.

I purchased a Netgear Universal Wifi Extender for my ipad, i've set it on on the ipad and it says its connected and evreything and the little correction mark comes up on the ipad showing connected. the...


Extender means it extends the existing Wifi or network. So the iPad now connects fine to the extender, but the extender needs to connect to the existing network either via Wifi or cable. You need to open from the iPad the admin page of the extender and find the connection details there to your existing network.

My wireless network card needs a new driver?


I have actually experienced this before and surprisingly, it turned out to be a hardware fault with my built-in wireless device. I had to resort eventually to one of those USB plug-in wifi dongles. They cost less than ten bucks, and if you don't need the range, come in "nano" sizes that protrude less than half an inch when installed. Do disable the internal wifi device, either in device manager or better still, in the bios if using this solution.
