Confused about router support for 5 GHz band. All wireless N routers support it??

Question: Confused about router support for 5 GHz band. All wireless N routers support it??

Someone told me in another thread, and I also read here, that

All Wireless N routers support dual-band 802.11nClick to expand...

implying that any wireless N router can use the 5 GHz band as well as the 2.4 GHz band. Isn't that the implication?

Then why is it that when I browse routers, only some of them list both 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency, while others list only 2.4 in the specs? I want to switch my network over to 5 GHz in order to get away from all the interference I'm getting, as discussed in this thread.

So what's the real answer? Will any cheap "wireless N" router be able to do 5 GHz, (e.g. this one?) or do I need a more expensive dual band one?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Confused about router support for 5 GHz band. All wireless N routers support it??

No. The 802.11n standard supports 5GHz, but does not require it. Now if a device was 802.11ac, it will have a 5GHz radio since that standard only works on that freq.

Answer:h520 wireless card (realtek 8188e)-does it support dual band router

hi Dia,
As per this pdf data sheet, the Realtek RTL8188EE is a single band (2.4Ghz) Wi-Fi card. If your router is a dual-band, you need to configure it to broadcast 2.4Ghz frequency so that the Ideacentre H520 can connect. Otherwise, it will not be able to connect to the 5Ghz band.

So it seems like this Laptop doesn't support 802.11ac.i've search this forum and the net, and it seems like either the wireless card or the laptop just doesn't support 802.11ac. I've updated the drivers to the latest Intel drivers, as well as tried using the latest drivers that Lenovo suggest but even though it says "Intel Wireless LAN 11abgn, 11bgn, 11ac) it doesn't. Has anyone actually been able to get 802.11ac working? even for the radios to show as being supported? netsh wlan show drivers output: netsh>wlan show driverInterface name: Wi-FiDriver : Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260Vendor : Intel CorporationProvider : IntelDate : 18/06/2014Version : : Native Wi-Fi DriverRadio types supported : 802.11b 802.11g 802.11n 802.11a still not sure if this a Lenovo problem or an Intel drivers problem ... does anyone know?

I have a Linksys wireless router, w54.. series (couple of years old), you know the type that's really popular? I'm not home right now to get the full model and numbers. I will update this post with the model and etc later when i'm at home. But anyways, my ISP is Cavalier and have that G2 (adsl) connection. They serve up the connection using dynamic IP. I can't seem to get the Linksys wireless route to work using the dynamic IP setting. Does that particular wireless router do not work with dynamic IP? Do I need a new wireless router so I don't have to reset my router every time Cavalier switches IP address to me? If the Linksys doesn't support dynamic IP what brand of wireless route will? Please advise.

O.k. here we go. I have a few computers that are upstairs and since I rent I don't want to drill holes in the floor to route cables. I want an app that will allow me to take an old notebook that I have (that doesn't have a cd rom) and take the incoming wireless connection and make it hardwired.IF I could get XP installed on the machine I would just use ICS and go from there. I can't get any large (ie cd based) OS to install, so something on a floppy would be great.

I have not been able to find much info on setting up ANY of the free router distros to use Wireless N.

Finding specific hardware support lists is even more difficult.

I have pfsense up and running, but it will only do G speeds on any N card.. and my N card is not supported, nore will pfsense even fully boot with the card installed no matter what mode I try to boot in.

Supposedly Vyatta supports wireless as supposedly a few other packes do.
But all I can really find is questions that never get answered about how to actually get it working.

I really don't want to get a seperate access point if I can help it.. might as well go with a crappy consumer router if I am going to go that route.

If I have to go with a seperate access point, it needs to have a Gb port on it.

Most Routers are backward compatible, in other words they will support G, B & N so you should be ok. But double check when purchasing just to make sure ... I would advise looking for a good "branded model" with good support. ie. Netgear, Dlink, Linksys, Belkin etc.

Well time to look at the Cisco Linksys E3000 instead. As that's where I headed for. Why over the Easter Weekend I was helping my brother-in-law setup his free Cisco Linksys 802.1n from Cox Communcations. He and I have Cox both have the same plan. But I didn't see what the fact that his wireless 802.11n downloads was very quick. Even though be both have Power Boost, his E2000 is quicker than Belkin N+. Wow! An on the Gizmo site online there is a short review on E3000 in 802.11n mode and it's quick. There is EnGenius ESR9850 that's suppose to be showing 700mbps on LAN to WAN and WAN to LAN on wired connections where P2P is showing 19,721 max connections instead of the norm 200 max simulations connections. As 802.11n is over 100mbps too.This is 10/100/1000mbps the NPU is all-in-one SOC meaning the wireless chipset is integrated into the chip. NPU speed is 384MHz and the onboard RAM is 32MB. Online this wireless 802.11n router is only $49 to $59 on some sites. Belkin N+ V2 uses this setup, but looks like some other companies have spiked up the firmware or hardware to get max connections speeds.

After two years of owning first Belkin N+ it has served me very well. But like all PCB wireless routers they tend to degrade and start acting up after heavy duty usage like I have place this router though. Plus these newer routers seem to have full speed ahead not like 2008, 2009 where they seem to be half speed. 2010 wireless routers not all but those I've ment... Read more

Hi there

Is THIS true -- W7 Mainstream support to end in 2015 -- I thought W7 was going on until around 2020.

This comes from FORBES - usually "Semi reliable" -- beware a lot of irritating ads that popup while you are trying to read the article -- there's no malware or "Malvertisements" in the article - just gets a bit irritating

Microsoft To Abandon Windows 7 Mainstream Support. Pressure Builds On Windows 9 - Forbes

I see EXTENDED support will continue but that's a different Animal.

BTW OT here but there's quite an interesting feature elsewhere - XP to get an un-official (not Ms) SP4 -- for those running XP as a VM that might be interesting too - although as always with "Unsanctioned" patches it's very definitely A.Y.O.R. - although the site does have credibility.

Note also from same magazine so you might get a few ads when reading - no malware though.


Answer:Jimbos confused - W7 Mainstream support to end 2015

Mainstream support will end on January 13, 2015.
However, extended support will continue until January 14, 2020.

The difference between mainstream and extended support is that during mainstream support, updates to Windows 7 may include new features, subsystems, and so forth in addition to security updates.

Once mainstream support ends and extended support comes around, Windows 7 will only receive security updates.

To put this into perspective, mainstream and extended support for Windows XP ended on April 14, 2009 and April 8, 2014 respectively.

I'm looking for a way to cover a big house with wi-fi. I've already tested with WRT54GL and it wasn't enough, so my idea is to buy 2 routers with good coverage and link them into bridge/repeater/WDS mode (I don't even know the difference to be honest). Since I've never done that before, I'm looking for an advice on which routers to buy and how to make it work altogether?

At first, 2x Unifi LR LongRange was a promising solution, buy as far as I understand it, they both need to be physically connected into router with UTP cable, so that's out of equation because I can't drill holes into walls.

How about 2x ASUS RT-N12 D1, would they do any good? They have pretty decent reviews and are also cheap, but do they even support signal repeating?

Answer:Buying 2 routers that support bridge/repeater/WDS

The best solution is to get a wireless system which supports creating a "back haul" over 5 GHz between APs which then allows the 2.4 GHz radio to be solely dedicated to servicing wireless client traffic.

"Can't understand the point of paying more for wireless broadband if I can just buy a router which will do the same job so am I missing something?"Yes, I think you are missing something.Broadband is broadband is broadband to the point where it enters your house.It only becomes 'wireless', if that's what you choose to do, within your house.As you say, you can use a router to wirelessly connect laptops/PCs in a number of rooms throughout the house rather than running wires all over the place."not sure whether this would be compatible with the Acer OS?"The OS is irrelevant. As long as your new laptop is wi-fi enabled (and most laptops are nowadays), that's all you need.

Ok, so I'm finally looking into replacing/consolidating my current network setup (cable modem > bb router > 100mb switch > comps/wap) and need a little advice. If possible, I really wanted to purchase one device to handle all/most of these tasks. The device that looks like it is coming the closest to what I am looking for is the D-Link DGL-4300. The one thing that is keeping me from getting this right now, is that it does not support jumbo frames. See here and here for more info. Now the Asus router in the second reference link there would be a decent wireless-less alternative, but the review makes a point to say that the routing options and interface are outdated, barren, and unfriendly, whereas the routing features on the 4300 are fairly highly regarded.

Question is, then, does anyone know of a gigabit broadband router (wireless pref., but not req'd.) with good routing features and support for jumbo frames? Price range for consideration probably needs to stay under $200.



Answer:Gigabit broadband routers with Jumbo Frame support?

<$200 for a gigabit router w/ jumbo frames support? Hard. Gigabit switch with jumbo frames + ipcop box w/ Intel PRO1000s under $200? Easier.

Hi all,
I have a Virgin Media Super Hub with a 60mpbs connection in my study on the first floor. The hub is connected to my NAS and my laptop, both wired. Wireless is disabled on the VM Super Hub, but it is not running in modem mode since I need access to the extra LAN ports.
A gigabit cable runs from the study to the living room on the ground floor where it is connected to the LAN port on a TP-Link n router. There are three devices connected to the router, again wired. This router acts as my hub for all the devices in the house (approx 10 devices in all). I use only the TP-Link as the wireless router since its performance far exceeds that of the Super Hub.
Unfortunately, none of the routers are dual-band. Now that I have a couple of dual-band capable devices, if I enable 5Ghz on the VM Super Hub and retain the 2.4Ghz on the TP-link, will I get the benefits of dual band? If not, what would I need to configure in order to achieve that? Do they need to have the same SSID?
Many thanks.

I keep receiving calls from fake MICROSOFT Tech support with various telephone numbers. Strange, they do not show up in my phone on line logs. They wanted me to go to FASTSUPPORT\763721586 ( do not use  these numbers). It is a company  called they also give you a complaint department where you can enter the number that you feel is causing you problems, the number of the LOGMEINRESCUE type remote access code. of course it is clear to them that you are suspicious and they will get rid of the  phone operator who didn't succeed. So do not bother to leave any complaint.

I have a T430s laptop and it is less than 6 months old. It starting getting blue screens within a month of purchasing it. Technical support has been helpless in trying to fix the laptop. First, tech support told me to turn update my computer daily. Then another tech support employee told me to turn OFF my auto updates. This did nothing and over a few weeks the blue screens progressively got worse. Next, tech support told me to run a diagnostic on my computer which turned up nothing. Then, they tried giving me recovery discs and a new hard drive. After that failed they took it in to replace the system board which made the blue screens worse. Then they sent me MORE recovery CDs to try to fix the problem and that also made the blue screens worse. I called tech support after this and they said they would send in a request for a replacement laptop. I was told I would hear from someone in a couple days. FIVE days later I got a called from someone asking if I wanted a replacement and I said yes. Then I was told I had to wait two more business days to get contacted about it. Another 3-4 business days later, someone called me to tell me that they would NOT be replacing the laptop despite the fact tech support could not fix the laptop. After calling tech support once again, I was told that they wanted me to send in my laptop again for up to 7 business days! This is completely unacceptable.

I have just sent a thinkpad back for repair for the first time in over 20 years of owning  Thinkpad.  I have had 8 thinkpad  series laptops in my time as well as a few desktops and now lenovo phones. I am absolutely horrified with the diabolical Thinkpad support. This is meant to be business level support. I feel like I am phoning up Curry's.  Laptop sent back with hard disk in it and I am being told now that it "turned up without a hard disk in it". Now undercurrent of me lying. Original problem had not been assessed and I still don't have my laptop back after 3 weeks. Customer service agents just tell you anything they want to get you off the phone. I suppose all things come to an end but my loyalty to the Thinkpad brand is probably over now.  I am sure I am not the first. Has anyone else come across this?

We are Dell resellers and had placed an order for 43 Laptops - Dell Latitude 3560 with Dell on 13th June, 2016. We delivered them to our customer on Friday 17th June, 2016. On Monday 20th June we discovered that all the Laptops are faulty and are not functioning properly. They have not been able to use a single system due to touchpad issues in the entire lot
We have made innumerable calls Dell to resolve the problem, but the team is unable to identify and rectify the problem. 
We have spoken to our partner account manager, regional account manager, Service Specialist and Escalation Team, requesting them to provide us with a solution at the earliest as their work is getting hampered. Our customer has to deploy the same by 1st July however they do not have any Dell Laptops functioning correctly.  
How do we escalate this to the Dell management and get a replacement ASAP

I paid for 3 years of support and accidental damage in home support. Together, it cost around $400 on my new XPS laptop. Afew months after I bought XPS 15 9560, I pulled out the charging cord, and a round piece of plastic that was inside the port came out too.
I called technical support at 5 pm EST, and received someone in Southern India. I gave them my information, and they confirmed that I had service. They then fought with me for 15 minutes, telling me I could NOT have any in home service. The representative, who kept calling me by my first name (no respect)  said I had to send my laptop to a depot in Texas for them to identify the issue. Finally, after I insisted, the representative, S. Sirya Kiran, FINALLY allowed me to get in home support IF I sent him photos of the damage. I did. Finally, I received an email telling me to select a date for service, which I did, 12/18/17 between 9 am and 1:00 pm .
I took time off and waited. No one came by 11:30, or called. So I contacted World Wide Tech Services. They then told me they didn't have enough techs to handle my area, so they were NOT coming. I asked why no one gave me the courtesy of a phone call and they had no answer. They said a new company, Unisys, would contact me. (I doubt they ever will.)
Is this what Dell gives people for their money as far as support and accidental damage in home service for $400? This is an outrage.

Hello there, I'm interested in finding out more about the X220 - In particular the actual bandwidth available to the i7 Version of the X220 with it's USB 3 port. I'd like to be able to use the Black Magic Design Intensity Shuttle with this laptop, however it requires a Super Speed USB 3.0 Port. It's common for laptops to only use a single PCIe lane interconnect, giving the USB3 Port only 2.5gbps of available bandwidth. This won't be enough to allow that capture card to work  A similar situation also exists for the Expresscard slot - To be able to support Expresscard v2.0, It needs to provide 5gbps (2x PCIe v1 lanes). If it does this, It's possible I can buy an USB 3 Expresscard which will have enough bandwidth to use the card. In short I would like to know if the super speed USB 3 port can actually function at the intended speed, and is not crippled to half rate.

I've just purchased a dual band wireless router, but not sure which is the best (or recommended) way to set up the wireless element.
Is it better to create two separate networks with unique names on each band (i.e 'My Network 1' and 'My Network 2'), or to give both bands the same network name ('My Network')?
At the moment, I've given them separate names, and noticed that some of my devices don't even see the 5GHz network when scanning for available networks, but it's no problem to change if that it what is advised.

Answer:Best way to use a dual band wireless router.

Yes best to split the networks, the old stuff will not see the 5Ghz as not compatible so set them for the slow band and the other stuff with the fast band.

Answer:wireless n router dual band

The computers will all work with an "N" router because of backward compatibility with "B" and "G". However, the enhanced performance of 802.11n will only be realised by connecting with 802.11n Wireless Network Adapters in the computers.I couldn't find a 'spec' for your particular PC but, if you go into Device Manager ("Start > Run", type DEVMGMT.MSC and click OK), expand the Network Adapters section and double click your wireless adapter, its Properties should indicate if it's 'G' or 'N'.

I know there are multiple solutions for wired routing, but what about wireless (N band)?

Reason I am asking.

The new performance routers are in the >$150 range and that is almost as much as a Atom powered computer. Of course the Atom will be more user modify-able.

I know you can't really just look at it from a cost angle, but more from a project angle.

Ideal solution would be one of those slick new net-tops as a wireless router.

Just curious.

Answer:Anyone MAKE their own WIRELESS N band router?

It's pretty simple, just create a wireless ad-hoc network and then enable internet connection sharing on a laptop or any other device with a wireless N adapter.

Presto, your other wireless devices connect to the laptop/nettop via ad-hoc (host-to-host) which consequently shares its wired internet connection with the other devices.

Actually it's a really good thing you brought this up. My wireless router (being used as an access point) is dying (can't manage more than 1 concurrent connection without having serious stability issues) and I've got an old crappy HP desktop and a spare USB wireless adapter that I could use in its place until I feel like scraping up a spare $100+ bucks to spend on a decent WAP. I'm too friggin' broke.

Would save me getting disconnected from the wireless on my laptop whenever my girlfriend starts up FarmVille on hers.

So I am sitting here on my MacBook Pro which in my opinion does not have any wireless issues whatsoever, it works. I still own this ThinkPad with a garbage wireless card, and I feasted my eyes on an Intel 7260 but lo and behold, it isn't on the whitelist! Scouring eBay and Amazon I did find a FRU, but would the number of that FRU be the same on the Hardware list? Lets see, well I cannot even find it. All I get are Page Not Found errors which to me is a hilarious joke of Lenovo's support. What does this mean for me? Is my X230 at a very very unnecessary end of life? Should I like, fork out £1400 for an "upgraded" model that probably won't fix most of my problems? My problems is money and saving money. Should i now look elsewhere? No, because I'd rather keep my money to actually FIX my current laptop's problems (the N2200 is a garbage card and would like to replace it with something that's up to date to todays technology but that isn't happening by the sounds of it) I am frustrated with my current laptop's problems and it's having a large effect on my studies. And possibly you can also lose customers by inadequate non-existent support and failure to give us the freedom to actually let us upgrade for those who do. For those who don't, more like.

My question is does the built in Windows back up in XP when backing up the system include the installed updates? Or is it best to use third party software to do this.


Answer:[SOLVED] End ofThis is a general question regarding the end of support for XP support

I believe Windows just backs up your personal files and won't do the entire OS. You'll need a 3rd party program to do the entire HDD.

Also you really should think about upgrading to Windows 7. Staying on XP after the end support date is not recommended as you will lose security updates from Microsoft as well as patches.

Hi there

Right, I really need some help here - I thought I had done this correctly but clearly not as it still doesn't work

Basically, I got my sister a wireless router, and purchased a big antenna for her to take up to Uni, as she has rented a house with loads of friends, and it's massive with very thick walls.

Luckily, the router and modifications mean she can access it all round the house (although she has had to put a long cat 5 cable in to put it on the middle floor).

When she finally got round to purchasing internet (from "Be") they sent her a wireless ADSL modem / router.

Here is the problem:
The router they sent doesn't have the range needed in my sisters house.
The router I gave her doesn't have an ADSL modem.
They also don't have a telephone cable going to the middle floor, only cat 5.

How can I connect the two routers together?
I know it's possible by turning off DHCP etc from the second router, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Without even sending me an email or contacting me, they sent me a new part and gave me zero information about it. Apparently every other person can replace a HDD now!  I have created 3 more cases calling their tech support to send the laptop for a depo repair. Everytime the request is rejected 'at the vendor' according to the customer care. Neither the customer care people or tech support can tell me why. Every time they create a new case, tell me I will receive a depo bag nect day, and I dont receive anything, have to call depo customer care and on hold for minimum 40 minutes, only to hear that the case has been rejected they dont know why.One tech support told me now I have to send the new part back before creating a new case, otherwise it will be rejected again. but he does not know how I can send the new part back. The return label sent to me was for the faulty HDD.Can anyone help? What is the point of paying for warranty if I receive this type of service? 

Answer:HORRIBLE tech support and warranty support

You do not state which type of warranty you currently have, there are a few which will affect how TS will or can respond. I hope you get this resolved to your satisfaction...

What is wrong with MS Tech Support, they say they dont support One Drive. I cannot connect to One Drive with any of my Windows phones, iPhone, or Android cell. I called tech support and they told me they are not trained to support One Drive for cell phones. I have spent lots of money on my equipment to be told they do not support it.

Some how my old friend managed to upgrade my PC from Windows XP to Windows 7 with that chipset driver CD I gave him. I don't know how he did it. I would ask him but he moved to Germany. Anyway I've heard you can run the setup with Windwos Vista compatiblity mode but I don't know if it is safe. Anyone know?

Answer:Motherboard support CD does not support your operating system

Download the drivers from the manufacturers website. The driver CD is likely outdated anyway.

Hi, I've got a d-link DSL G640T modem / router and would like to know if it will support 8mb broadband? If it will, I want to upgrade with BT. How can I find out?Thanks all, Dio

Answer:Will my mopdem / router support 8mb BB?

The router should be capable of 8 Mb broadband, but you may get a slower speed than that if your line isn't up to it. If you live close to the exchange and the line is good quality you should get 8 Mb, however if you live a bit further away you might get a slower connection.

Yo! As the title says I have in my possession an Asus RT-N56U Dual Band Wireless Router. A friend gave it to me, since the 2.4 GHz Band stopped working. He says that the Antenna could have melted because he tried resetting the device, upgrading its firmware, and verifying that the Router's page had the spectrum enabled.

I also tried those steps to verify it to no avail.

Any suggestions?


Answer:Asus RT-N56U (Wireless Router) isn't broadcasting 2.4GHz Band

1st, check that the 2.4 antennae is on and that the 2.4 SSID is broadcast in the wireless setup page of the router.

If that all good, you could try to update the firmware

Networking - RT-N56U
Manuals are under Manuals & Document
Firmware is under Drivers and Tools (skip the beta version and grab the nexy one - Version

Might as well have a look at the FAWs too - there might be a solution there.

As the topic states, I am trying to find a router that can authenticate TO a server that requires PEAP authentication. I don't even know if such a thing exists... :-x

But in either case let me try to explain the background of my situation and what I am trying to do.
I just recently moved back in to dorms at my college after a semester of living at home. I decided to bring my newly built rig to school with me. When I plugin my wired connection for my laptop (so that I could send in the information (MAC addresses) of my router+new desktop) I see that I need some sort of verification. I did some asking around and find out that my school had implemented PEAP authentication to both wired and wireless networks. At this point I figure out how to get my laptop up and running on the network (so that, at the very least I have *something* to get online with)
Now, I tried following my schools documentation for wired PEAP again on my desktop ( ) however, on my desktop there is no Authentication tab in my connection properties.
So, after that, I try to see if I can just use my router (relatively old) and split a connection with the NAT gateway. But, it would not grab an IP address (99% sure its because it cant authenticate with the PEAP on the server).

if any of you know of routers that can authenticate to a server that uses PEAP could you possibly tell me the make/model/approx... Read more

Answer:looking for a router with 802.1x/PEAP authentication support

Understand that your request..... maybe be against the forum rules (bypass security). However, I'll let the Mods decide which is which.

Now to answer your question, I doubt there is any non-pc device that can authenticate using 802.1x (only exception being printers, some barcode scanners/pda devices).

Your only option really is to get it working with a PC and to use ICS or other NATing software.

I'm not sure if 802.1x works on x64. Assuming you have xp sp2 running, go to services and look for wireless zero config service. This service usually is used with wireless devices, however, it also handles the authentication pieces. Make sure this is running and you should see the 802.1x tabs on your PC.

Good Luck!

Looks like its time to upgrade from my older Linksys WRT54GX router to a new one.
My question is which new routers support IPv6?? How can you tell?? Is there a comprehensive list of new routers supporting it??
(If I am to upgrade, might as well get a nice one that supports it).

Anyone have suggestions for a good/great (wireless) router that plays nice with Win7 x64?? Something in the sub $200 range. Willing to spend more for a better product.
(In doing some research I have seen poor reviews for virtually all routers, no matter the make/brand... so maybe I should be looking for the "LEAST WORST"..LOL)

Currently I have 4 hardwired computers and 4 wireless devices (1 computer, 3 "other"--ipod touch, wii, etc)

Anys suggestions will be appreciated.

Buffalo, Buffalo, Buffalo BADDDDDDD.I have been emailing Buffalo support in UK for the past 6 weeks. I have a problem that lots of others are experiencing, which is my router loses its settings. They are the most unco-operative, obstructive support centre I have ever experienced. They fail to read the description of the problem, they cannot supply a remedy. I have tried all the things they suggested. Instead of suggesting returning the unit, they have abandoned my case, and left me with a defective unit. They are allegedly almost worse than Belkin.

Answer:Buffalo router support diabolical

If you are sure that you have been wronged, refer the matter to the local authority Trading Standards section. I'd like to bet that that will make them a tad more receptive.

Receiving following error message when running my PS4s connection test and currently online gaming is almost impossible - 'The router in use may not support IP fragmentation and some functions may be limited....' I've contacted both Sony and my internet provider (Vodafone) and got no where. My Ps4 is the only device in my home having this issue and my PS3 works fine. Sony blames Vodafone and Vodafone blames Sony. I've been researching this issue and I've tried every fix I could find to no avail including port forwarding and a ping test to find correct mtu. The error message appears using WiFi and Ethernet. Apologies if this is the wrong site to ask this question but I'm desperate for some kind of solution, any feedback or suggestions would be really appreciated.

Hi all,I am new to the forum and I am currently looking for a modem-router or just arouter to which I can connect a printer and external HDD. I have only one computer but would like to move around the house. any ideas any one?many thanks

Answer:modem router with usb to support printer and HDD

Any modem router with ethernet connection ports would enable you to do this. (and most do)Wireless would allow you to move (the PC around the house)Look at D-Link, Netgear, Linksys.You would need a network enabled printer (eg click here)or a print server, though a few expensive modem routers incorporate a print server. You also need a network attached storage device to provide the external HDD. Search using Google for NAS devices.Connect printer and NAS device to router using ethernet network cables and PC by wireless and you are there!

Hello, Folks..

I was planning to upgrade my OS (Windows XP pro) from 32-bit to 64-bit, and found out my current router won't be supported for the OS, according to their web site.

If it is true, what brand support 64-bit OS currently?
My knowledge over wireless tech is between noobie to intermediate, so please easy on me~

Thank you...

Answer:Which brand Router support x64 Windows XP?


Routers are device independent. As long as TCP/IP is installed, NETGEAR routers work with all operating systems. However most of the information in manuals assumes installation and maintenance is done in a Windows operating system. For information on Windows TCP/IP contact Microsoft or the network interface card vendor.Click to expand...

Reread the underlined part, as you seem to've misread it the first (or second...) time around. Your router will work with any operating system that supports the TCP/IP protocol, even XP64. Routers just need a network connection, they don't need drivers installed on the computer. The only problems you might have running XP64 are drivers for the devices in your computer, such as LAN adapter, modem, wireless network card, etc.

So my girlfriend and I just inherited her dad's Netgear WNDR3700v3. They said the power switch on their surge protector got cycled one day and suddenly the router stopped broadcasting its SSID. After swapping out the router they still had various wireless connectivity / general internet issues, so they got their ISP out and found that specific issue was on their side... I'm not really network savi, for whatever reason, but I know that SSID broadcasting has to be on and the Wireless Radio has to be on. Both boxes are checked for both bands in the router setup and the indicator light is solid-on on the front panel of the router, yet I still can not detect the signal on our phones. What's really strange is that after putting a hardline from the router to my computer I can connect via my computer's WiFi... What could it be?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:NETGEAR Dual Band Wireless Router Not Broadcasting SSID (Yes! The box is checked!)

So I'm going to set up a wireless access point to allow a small business to go wireless. I'm interested in something that will serve them well. It doesn't need room for expansion, as long as it can support 4 to 7 users right now (about)... not more than 10, though.

Do I need to go with something professional or will the regular Linksys WAP11 be enough?

Answer:Best wireless access point to support 5 to 10 wireless users at the same time?

for more than 3 users, avoid 11b.
get 11g equipment

for 7 users, go for a linksys WRT54G. its semi-professional in that it runs linux and can be flashed with modified firmware painlessly.

i'd recommend leaving it "open" to avoid hassles.
however, if its use needs even the slightest bit of security, use WEP.
