Problem with WiFi Router

Q: Problem with WiFi Router

Dear Guys,

Need your help/advice here regarding a WiFi Router. Friend of mine told me that before he goes to sleep he turn off all his network devices (Modem and WiFi Router) but when he turn them ON again in the morning he has to wait to long to get WiFi signal? Devices turned on and he has signal on his mobiles but after 4-5 minutes he can browse on internet? Any advice/help will be great.

Many thanks,

Hi,

I recently bought dlink D2750U WIFI ADSL modem/router, for my ADSL internet connection.

But I have now changed my ISP, who provide internet via cable(not telephone line). The ISP guy provides a cable modem(old modem) along with it.

I have connected my PC this way:
Cable modem -> Router -> PC through RJ45. I am able to access internet from my PC, but I am not able to get wifi working on the router. And I am logging onto internet through a dial up connection.
Questions:
1) Please help in configuring the router to get wifi working.
2) Also, my default gateway seems to be either 0.0.0.0 or blank. So, I am not able to login to the modem unless I remove the modem connection. Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong here.

Here are a few more details:

A:Using dlink D2750U Wifi Modem/Router As a Wifi Router

Hey Narain. The D-Link unit you have appears to be a combo unit (modem and wireless router) since it connects straight to the RJ-11 phone line. This unit won't work with an ISP that provides service by way of coax cable. The D-Link will work if you want to use DSL, but you need a cable service compatible modem or combo modem/router if you use cable service.

And now, I just can't connect to any of the 2 gateway, the router's gateway, since the LAN's light on the moden not turned on, I think that's where it begins. But the modem's gateway ?

I set up my wifi router Linkys WRT54GC (connected by cable to a PC) and Sitecom WL-130 range extender (for a laptop) about a year ago, and apart from the occasional IP conflict in the laptop it worked well. Recently, I attempted to definitively solve the IP problem. After resetting both router and range extender to the factory settings and reconfigurating them I was able to connect to the access point, but not the Internet – and I'm stuck at this point. I followed the set up guides to the letter but I just can't see what I'm doing wrong. Here are the router and range extender details:

Hi all,

I have been using a router for a few years now, no problems up until the last two weeks or so.
All internet capable devices including a Windows 8 laptop, android phone and an Apple Ipad only recive limited access when placed at the other end of the house (so I do not think it is OS/device related). This issue is recent.

Strength is at 4 out of 5 bars normally, dropping to 2 or 3 when at the far end of the house. This has not been an issure before. Reseting the router helps for a few minutes, moving into 'internet range' (as the router works fine when really close to the device) also helps for a couple of minutes if the device is moved into 'limited range'.

Running an ethernet cable from the same location as the 4 bars range is fine, no worries.

I tried the first 2 steps in this article: http://www.fixedbyvonnie.com/2013/1...or-no-connectivity-wi-fi-issues-in-windows-8/
1st step worked for about the same time as resetting the router, I couldnt carry out the second step as the correct tab was not there.

I have tried other web articles but there is nothing specific that I can find about my problem.

One other thing I should mention is that we purchased a 'wifi booster' thing that sits right at the other end of the house does nothing to help with the situation. Restarting the booster and being within 5 bars range does not help (which makes me think it is a problem with the router wifi itself).

Thanks,
Andre

First thought is WIFI signal interference - reducing reach of the WIFI signal.

Is the WIFI neighberhood packed with signals?

Do a scan with this tool

Use a different channel in case you're on a congested channel with other WIFI networks.

For example:
A neighbor with a new WIFI router could interfere with your own WIFI on the same channel.

Hello - can anyone help with this issue - i am finding it very strange!

I have just learnt about wifi networks and have set one up, so i sort of know what i'm doing but this has me stumped.

I am trying to set up a wireless connection for a friend and the situation is this:

Using windows zero wireless configuration utility there are no availble wireless networks to connect to when sitting 2 feet from his router. So i thought i would check to make sure the wireless card is working - i took it to my house and signed on to my network, where i signed on with ease, and connected to the internet - the wifi card works fine and is enabled.

I thought i would then check the router to make sure that is working - I took my laptop to his house and connected to his router and surfed the internet. I could see his ssid fine - The router is working fine. The SSID is not hidden!

So it isn't the card or the router as they both work, but when i go back onto his laptop there are still 'no available networks'. Am i missing some really easy setting? Why would his laptop not see any networks when i can on my laptop?
And even more why can i sign on to my wifi with his comp but he cannot sign onto his own?

The router is a comtrend CT536 and the wifi car an intel pro 2200bg. Anyone know of any compatibility issues? AARRRGHHHHhhh!

Any help will send good kharma your way and a lot of thanks

have a good night/ day.
Lee.
 

A:Strange wifi problem - no available networks from one router but works on another

>The router is a comtrend CT536 and the wifi car an intel pro 2200bg. Anyone know of any compatibility issues?

so one laptop sees both routers and his will only see your router.

sounds like b/g modes are malconfigured. set both routers to b G mode only.

could also be one router is A/B and the other is B/G
(A mode uses different frequency than B/G)

I use road runner cable internet from time warner. I have a linksys wrt54g wireless router that was purchased many years ago. In our apartment, we have 3 computers. One is a desktop. The other 2 is laptops. One of the laptops we use is in a room very far from my room where the router and desktop computer is located at. The connection for the wireless is pretty bad so you have to go to the living room right next to it to get a better connection.
At first i thought i fixed this problem by upgrading the firmware as i have never did this before ever. I upgraded it to firmware version 4.21.5 for the linksys router. At first it seemed like the signal got better from that room but now its as bad as it was before.
My question is what could be the problem? I put my router on top of my desktop computer so it wouldn't be on the table where so many things could block it. Thus its at the highest point i could put the router in my room.
So i tried something different. Well i then brang my laptop to that room and went on the same site as the other computer and went to load the same streaming videos. My laptop however... the connection was faster than the other laptop in that room which is far away from where the desktop/router is at. Basically you can't even stream a video in that room most of the time but my laptop could.
Does that mean that my router isn't the problem since the wireless signal works fine for my laptop there whereas the inspiron 15r goes much slower... Read more

A:Wifi Signal Not Strong Enough- Router or Laptop Problem?

Someone suggested to take the router out of my room and bring it to the living room so it would be closer to that laptop. I was going to do this but i cannot b/c there is a wire that connects from my cable modem to this other thing. I'm not sure what its called but basically it is connected to these wires on the top in my hallway. Does anyone know what that is called?

Someone suggested i could buy a usb wireless adapter like this

http://www.amazon.com/Medialink--15...&qid=1362007920&sr=1-1&keywords=wireless+card
Does that mean plugging this into that computer possibly could make the connection stronger in that room? I'm thinking that the reason has to be because that laptops wireless card isn't strong like mine which is why? But would buying this solve the problem?

Someone said buy another router because my router is very old and to get an N router. Should i do this instead? The thing is i'm thinking its not the router fault as my wireless is fine with my laptop in that room. thoughts on this? And if i should do this, can someone recommend me a wireless router that has good range? There are soo many routers on amazon.com with good/bad reviews and it seems like the good reviews they have, there are tons of bad ones as well.
Someone said my other option would be to buy some wireless extender. I checked amazon but aren't these basically wireless router with an extender?

I have a home network with an XP 64, and Linux SUSE 11.1 64 bit, hard wired to a Netgear WGR614v7 router connected to Clearwire wireless modem. I've connected to the network with an old laptop with Cisco wifi card. I had minimum problems connecting with the early wifi.

I just bought a new laptop with Vista, soon to be Win 7 I hope. When I try and connect to the network with wifi, I get limited access. I'm running WEP, authentication - automatic, 128 bit, and have typed the same "passphrase" more than once on both the router and in Vista. I'm not familar with WEP, and Vista. The problem seems to be in Vista authenticating the passphrase. If I could clear the network setup in Vista that would be a good start.

I have a computer connected with the router, and several mobile devices and a laptop which connect to the router on and off. Occasionally (and very annoyingly) all devices connected to the wifi are unable to connect to the wifi even if they are in range, all devices at the same time are unable to connect to the wifi. This will last for hours until somebody goes and restarts the router, and during this dry spell the computer connected through LAN with the router works just fine.

I am looking to replace my tired Linksys WRT54G router that is about 10 years old. I love the router, and its even better with DD-WRT on it, but I'm starting to have troubles with the wifi dropping all the connects for a couple seconds when running all my wireless devices. I have 3 smart phones, 2 tablets, 1 Chromecast, a smart TV, and Roku + a laptop or 3 in my house right now, and it seems like its getting to be a bit much for it.
I have had to completely re-flash the firmware twice this year to get the wifi working again, so I'm thinking its time for replacement.
I have been thinking about just getting the new WRT54GL for $50, but I'm also thinking it might be a good idea to upgrade the wifi technology past wireless G .
I'm wondering if my Tablet (Nexu 9), and our smartphones (Razr HD Max) along with the Chromecast will take advantage of the new wireless standards and higher speeds or not? If they will can someone recomend a decent wireless router that takes DD-WRT nicely in the sub-$100 range? Thanks!
 

A:Looking for new Wifi Router - Will Tablet/Smartphone take advantage of new wifi Standards?

I been programming in Android/Linux since 2010 and there is code that supports VHT is Very High Throughput. Right now the standards are HT is High Throughput .

As for DD-WRT firmware is like your overclocking your router pushing it beyond the OEM limits. I use to use DD-WRT but had quit many years ago since the routers that used that firmware would fail too much.

So best to buy a better business type enterprise router wired then you can use WiFi router as AP or just get WiFi AP(access point). To me WiFi Router is also Wired Router, but to use just a wired router and use WiFi AP through a switch is better. If one or the other goes you can easy replace them. Where as if the WiFi Router fails you would need to replace it.

If you really want to use DD-WRT then Look at Buffalo WiFi Routers some come pre-installed with DD-WRT on them. Frankly you really don't need DD-WRT today because newer routers or WiFi routers are much better built and offer much more power NPU = network processor units and 128, 256, 512, 1GB of RAM some have Dual Cores.

So I got a new router yesterday to replace the old one, and I've been working on it for a long time. But I can't seem to figure out why there isn't any internet connection. The new WiFi Router (D-Link DR-842) Shows it is connected to the internet (green light) but in the setup page, it says disconnected. Could the PPPoE details be causing this? As far as I know everything is correctly set up except for the internet part.

I have been trying for some time to accomplish the title result. I'm not techie enough to do it.

What I want is to be able to use a Tablet to read in the rear of my home (which is out of range for incoming wifi signal.)

If I can set up the computer to do this, I will cable connect to a router in that area.
I have two computers and could use either.

1.a PC running XP (should update to windows 8.1, but have never bothered to do that, since XP works just fine. (I had this computer sharing to the router, when I had DSL internet connection, using Windows wizard to set it up) Couldn't get it to work when I switched to WIFI internet access) I could switch to win 7 or 8.1 if that would help.

2. a Lap Top running WIN 8.1,

Any help is appreciated.

A:Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Due to the age of XP this is not the best option for what you want to do

Either windows 7 or 8.1 have access to Internet connection sharing (ICS) built in

To use ICS you need at least two connections to the local LAN, these can be any mix of wifi or Ethernet.

As you have a laptop you likely already have a system to use for this

There is a tutorial explaining the basics ... and more on this site

Check it out and post back if you have any issues

Hi Could you please tell me if this is possible:
My computer is connected to a wireless network. Can I hook up my D-link (DIR-412) to my computer and use the internet from the computer to output another wireless area?

Thanks sounds complicated.
 

A:Connected to WIFI and want to extend wifi with another wireless router

Where you live is your setup like this?

#1
Internet
Modem
WiFi Router

or

#2
Internet
Modem with built-in WiFi Router

If you want extend the WiFi you would get WiFi Access Point. Or you can take a WiFi Router and disable NAT, SPI, DCHP, then you create a static IP address. 192.168.x.50

Hello, I am a bit of a hard time with 2 routers on one network and unfortunately as things stand now they both have to be there. So I just got ADSL and the only modem option available to me was one with a 4-port wired router, I hooked that up into my existing network of about 9 computers (5 laptops and 4 desktops) which is connected by another 4-port WiFi router.

I started out with my only goal of hooking 3 of these computers to the internet after I got the DSL by some MAC filtering configured in the WiFi router. But, having the DSL modem/router has created another issue. I am using 2 separate IP gateways for both the routers which are in the same subset, I can connect to both of them from all my machines. The problem is I don't have any control over which computer connects to what router. I am trying to avoid setting each PC up with a static IP that needs internet access.

Here is my setup in more detail. My ADSL router is 192.168.1.254 and my WiFi router is 192.168.1.111 and both have the subnet 255.255.255.0. My ADSL connection has dynamic IP and the modem/router is connected into a LAN port on the WiFi router. I have tried disabling DHCP on the modem/router and changed my WiFi router IP to that of the modem (which was counter productive) to no avail. Someone mentioned MAC address cloning but I am not sure if it will work in this setup. Since I configured this I am seeing quite a few IP conflicts, which are probably my fault as I didn't check when I was setting... Read more

Hello guys, I'm new here, and I know that this sounds like a duplicate thread, but I couldn't find anything similar to this one.  I have said laptop with the Intel wireless card (7260) running Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04. I'm on the go quite often so I have connected to several wifi routers with no issues.  And there is my home. I am rarely here, but when I get here I can connect to my wifi router (2.4 GHz), but often experiencing unusually high pings (above 1000 ms). This happens on both OS-esI have the latest wireless driversIn Windows Device Manager I set everything I could to max the wifi performanceNo other device has this issue (two laptops, two smartphones, an USB wifi stick on my home network (not simultaneously of course))The environment should not be an issue. The router is 6-7 meters away, with two walls between the router and the laptop. I have an older Lenovo laptop next to this one (G580) and it has no issues at all. The laptop does not have this issue with other devicesThe issue is with the connection between the laptop and the router (I tried reaching the router's config site, same slowness)The network properties say that my connection link's speed is 27/27 MBPS, sometimes less, sometimes more, but I always have a strong signal There is only one other wifi router nearby and that's on a different channel.It is starting to get really annoying, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:HOw to Connect wifi broadband to Wifi Router

I may be misunderstanding you but if you're getting WiFi out of your broadband appliance already, you don't need a router. If you do want to use a WiFi router, you're not going to be using the WiFi signal from the broadband appliance.

Actually my wifi adapter can catch all other wifi signal except my wifi router.

A:my notebook wifi adapter don't get my wifi router

There are several resons.1. The wifi signal might be too weak at the point where the computer is.2. Other device radiation/signals might be blocking it.3. Your router signal might be hodden (check EWS of router).4. Signal broadcasting might have been turned off on router. Since other signals are found on the computer, there shouldnt be a issue with your couputer.

Hello one and all,
I am sincerely hoping someone can assist with my little networking problem as i'm tearing my hair out now..

Here at work we have a Vigor Modem/Router hosting our connection to the world. It was originally on DHCP & the 4 computers & 2 printers found their own IP addresses without problem.

We added a Linksys router via ethernet (to a lan port not the wan) in another area of the yard. This was fine also on DHCP and connecting wirelessly from a laptop or mobile phone was a doddle.

Then our oh so wonderful IT geek decided to put the Vigor on a Static IP along with all the computers connected to it. This has some how cut off the wifi capability of the Linksys router now.

It is basically acting as a hub for two laptops and nothing else.

In simplistic terms with some detail what settings need changing on the Linksys if any?

The Vigors internal IP is 192.168.1.1
Linksys is 192.168.1.4
both on subnet 255.255.255.0

I have been advised to set the Linksys to a static IP on the Internet Connection option but what set of figures do i need for that??

Fingers crossed...

Hello,

I have a wireless adsl router in preparation for broadband arriving in our area soon (long story), and have some questions:

I have a laptop with wifi card and want to setup a home network with this, and my PC (plugged-in via LAN cable to the router).. laptop is XP, PC is Win2K
I can't seem to get this to work. one minute the PC can 'see' the laptop (in network neighbourhood) and then the other way round, but I can never access shared directories on either... is there a good guide somewhere to set this up?

Also, shouldn't I be able to use the router from the PC as if it were a wifi card?
i.e. on the laptop, once the wifi card is plugged in, it displays all wifi networks in the area and their signal strength etc.... how can I do this using the router/PC??

With the laptop I can connect to our neighbours wifi router and use their bradband connection, but I want to do the same from the PC.. is that possible?

Thanks in advance all..

(P.S. router is a D-Link DSL-604+)

Hi there

If you've a spare / old router which you can set up as a wifi bridge and connect a bit of LAN cable from Laptop into the Bridge router you'll generally get FAR better performance from even a cheap router.

Logic behind this is that most Wifi adapters are half duplex whereas a router is full duplex and throughput will be significantly better.

Another advantage is that you can still use 5 GHZ band even if your PC or whatever only can handle 2.4 GHZ wifi.

If your router doesn't have bridging facilities you can often do it by a firmware upgrade --for most routers try this :

www.dd-wrt.com | Unleash Your Router

Note --this is the Bridging router --not your main one that you use to connect to your ISP with --don't want to cause people to have inoperable boxes !!!!!.

I've found using a Router as a bridge far better than having to have loads of LAN cable all round the house --and also antennae in wifi routers are hugely better than most built in Wifi cards so you can in a lot of cases avoid extra slowdown caused by wifi extenders.


In my "man shed" -- a good 100 metres from the main house - could just about get 8 Mib/s on a very poor 2.4 GHZ wifi signal from the wifi card

Laptop now acceptable - still with 2,4 GHZ wifi but using "Bridged" method with an old EDIMAX wifi 4 port router. Around 70 Mib/s (still a lot slower by about 10X - I'm getting nearly 1Gb/s download in main house on 5 GHZ wifi --ISL has excellent Internet !!!... Read more

How would one set up a home wifi network with a non-wifi router? I have a router for my voip phone but it is not wireless. Do I just add a wireless card to my main PC?

I do not want to remove my current router. None of the wifi routers I have looked at have VOIP ports on the back.

Will adding a wifi PCI card do the trick? Most of the wifi cards show them in use with a wifi router.

I have a Belkin wireless router. I have a Belkin wireless print server. The router is not connected to the Internet because where I live, only has WIFI service. Which means I also have a Linksys Speed Booster,WUSBG54 to connect to the internet. My problem is that my print server will only print if the CAT 5E is connected from my laptop to the router. At that point I lose my Internet connection. I have to unplug the CAT 5E from the back to gain Internet access.
Is this the way it has to be?

Configure the router and get the wireless printer to work. Through the router, (it should not need the internet to print), Then Configure the wireless adapter to connect to the internet. Not sure, but it should work.
