Wireless association hammerin - broadband-internet


The wireless association in my house went haywire. It worked on three PCs, one had a atrocious connection, and one can't connect. Concerning Hubby and me, we spent a lot of time researching and demanding to appear out the problem. We tapering down the promise few by doing tests. Hubby is the association king in our house and I cultured a bit in effective with him. In fact, I solved the problem. . . temporarily.

I have faith in the wireless on the router is bad. It works fine when we hook miles of cable to it (I've tripped over them, knocked equipment down, and chased after a child who grabbed one. ). I'm tired of looking at the cables, so we're contacting the maker of this router as well as hunting for deals for a new wireless router with g (as in 802. 11g).

Here are some of the tricks and troubleshooting tips I've cultured in in performance with the router:

  • Look at how many computers can associate and how many can't. This tells you a story. If all of them don't work, then the conundrum is most possible the router itself. Maybe it needs a austere hard reset. Try a soft reset first (turning it off and back on). If that doesn't do it, do a hard reset subsequent the directions for your router. Mine necessary property the reset do up while rotary it off and back on and not let go until about a close after spinning it back on.
  • If no mainframe wirelessly connects to the network, check to see if the router still works by between to it with a cable. If it works here, you know the router is still alive. It doesn't inevitably mean the wireless is dead. Obviously, if your router is austerely wireless and not dual like mine (cable and wireless), this won't work. Instead, you can test by bypassing the router and plugging your LAN cable at once into the DSL/Cable modem.
  • Do a diminutive pingin'. It could be the ISP is down and not a router problem. Open a charge bring about casement (Start > Run > type "cmd" > hit Enter) and type "ipconfig /all" and you be supposed to get a answer back with your IP address, subnet mask, duck gateway and other items. What you are looking for is the IP concentrate on of the "Default Gateway. "

At the charge line, type "ping XXX. XXX. XXX. XXX" where XXX = the figures programmed as the Duck Gateway. For example, my evasion gateway concentrate on is 192. 168. 1. 1, therefore, I would type "ping 192. 168. 1. 1" If you get a response, then your router is working. Next, try to ping a site. You don't need to know the IP address. You can ping by Web address. For example, type "ping www. marqui. com" and you ought to get a reaction with the ping times from an IP address. That IP attend to is Marqui's. How did your central processing unit know this? All the way through DNS (Domain Baptism Service), but that's a further topic. If you can't ping a site on the Internet, the conundrum is most expected with your ISP.

  • Have a battery phone? Some mobile phones disconnect wireless acquaintances while you're using it. Stupid, but it happens. I have one that does just that and an added that doesn't mess with it. Aggravating. I sought after to arrival the phone, but it was a "no return" phone. If I had known it would mess with the wireless, I would have never bought it. So I academic that the next time I buy a phone, to check to see if it will kill the wireless or not.
  • Ensure configuration is correct. Check the router's guidebook to accomplish this step.
  • Try varying the channel. If that doesn't work, adjustment the SSID (aka name) and the channel. If your wireless' SSID is "Wireless" and is on concentrate 5. First, try shifting the concentrate to 11 or no matter which other than 5. If that doesn't work, then build a new SSID like "Router" and pick a channel, any channel. It never hurts to reboot the router after each change, while when construction changes to it, it resets itself. This step is what got our exchange ideas running again.
The course of action for varying it depends on your router. For mine, all I had to do is enter its IP adopt (200. 200. 1. 1, for example) in the browser, enter the ID and password, and I am in. It's comparable to a software or appliance screen. Enter info, choose drop-down boxes, and click buttons to adjust / save.

  • Another good thing to know is to point your mouse over the wireless icon in the approach tray. It provides basic in order about your wireless connection. It provides in order on the SSID, speed, and strength. The blacked out part in the image is where the SSID is located. Also, get more in a row by right-clicking on the icon and selecting "View Existing Wireless Network" or "Open Association Connections. "
  • You may have WEP curved on. This secures others from using your wireless as it requires a password. If it's on, verify each PC has it enabled and the acceptable password or passphrase.

This is a handful of what you can do. Other options are more comprehensive and complex. But this is a good start and will help eliminate a adulthood of possibilities.
