Hello Everybody!

I have got a problem with my external DVD Rom Drive.
First of all my computer specification

Sony Vaio PCG-VX71P
Intel Pentium III mobile CPU 850Mhz
256 MB Ram
Windows XP SP3

External IEEE 1394 SBP2 Device : Sony i-Link PCGA-CDRWD1 (CD-RW DVD ROM drive)

The problem occured when I installed Service pack 3 yesterday.
Since then my Computer doesnt recognize my external DVD Rom drive.
The device manager shows a yellow exclamation mark.

I guess I need to update the driver, if so I don't know where to get it.
Normally it should be here

HOwever, when i try connecting to the internet, it always says connection error or something. Again, may laptop sees my wireless router and it shows that it is connected.
 

Answer:sony vaio wifi problem

would you post back the tests below - ipconfig /all, Ping and Xirrus

Do you have a firewall on the PC - if so try to disable that
Do you have wireless security enabled on the router - i would remove the security and see it now works ok
Does any other machine work OK with the wireless ?

Okay, so I have here before me a Sony Vaio NR series laptop.
It has a large problem: The WiFi Doesn't work properly.

For some odd reason, when you start it up in safe mode, the WiFi works perfectly.
When you start it up normally, you see the WiFi light comes on and it connects to one of the preferred networks like it's supposed to, until about a minute later, it turns off the WiFi light and disconnects from the network, and will not find any networks. When you click "Diagnose why windows cannot find any wireless networks" it says "The Wireless Capability is turned off" or something like that and says I should turn on the wireless switch. However, the wireless switch, is already on.
I can flip it as much as I want, it does nothing. The light will not turn on again until I restart it, only to have it do the same thing over again.

I know it's not a hardware problem, cause it works in safe mode just fine. So why doesn't it work in windows when it's started normally?
Help would be much appreciated, I'm pretty close to just reloading the operating system.

EDIT: I have uninstalled and reloaded the updated driver software for the wireless LAN card... no luck.
 

Answer:Sony Vaio NR series WiFi problem

You also need to indicate more about your system specs to get any idea of the problem, like: What operating system and its release level? What is the make/model of the wifi card?

i just replaced an old belkin g router with a d-link dir-825 extreme n dual-band router...i managed to get the desktop connected to the internet using a d-link dwa-552 pci adapter (after updating using the atheros version driver, the included software manager/driver on the cd was a pain-in-the-a$$)...

the macbook pro also connects to the router and the internet...as does the wii and the ps3...using WPA2 security...

the vaio laptop, with vista business 32-bit and an intel wifi 4965agn adapter will not connect to either the router (192.168.0.1) or the internet in a browser window...

i updated the driver to the latest version...

the wireless network shows up, but when i try to connect it says "local access only"...in the vista diagnostic window it says "can't connect to primary dns server" (192.168.0.1)

i set up the router with this same laptop using a wired connection and the d-link set-up wizard, and i got an internet connection then...it just won't connect wirelessly...

of course i reset the router and the cable modem (time warner/roadrunner)...

is it an ip address problem? if so, how do i solve it?

thanks for any ideas...

Hello, I have a problem with a Tplink W8968. My Canon printer wifi does'nt work with this router. I tried to setup the Canon with another router and it works fine. With Tplink It's impossibile to use it in wifi. If I try to install the Canon with the software - http://support-sg.canon-asia.com/contents/SG/EN/0200210302.html - the printer does'nt work because the router doesn't assign any ip address to the printer.

Ok I have a Asus G60VX thats less than a year old running windows 7. On Friday (three days ago) the system was working fine, I could connect to the internet and everything. Tonight when i turned on my laptop it showed that i couldn't connect to the internet. So i rebooted both my computer and router thinking it was my brother playing Xbox live. It still didn't work. So i tried the usual suspects: deleted the saved file and made a new one, went into the device manager and made sure there weren't any problems (there weren't), i even tried doing a system restore but to no avail. I tried the Fn combo on my keyboard and the switch on the front but this still didn't work. After three hours searching for a solution on my desktop (which can access the internet fine) I kinda want to take a sledge hammer to the thing. :) So at this point i'm begging for a solution! thanks!

Answer:Problem with Intel WiFi link 5100?

Hi.

Did you install any iTunes or Apple software before this happened?

For now, try resetting the network protocol tcp/ip stack. In an elevated command prompt, copy and paste this then hit enter:


Code:
netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
Then do the same for this command:


Code:
netsh winsock reset
Reboot and test the connection. If still no good, go into Internet Explorer.

Tools | Internet Options | Connection | Lan Settings

and make sure there are no checked boxes. Then ok your way out a few times. Reopen IE and test.

If still no good, please respond about the Apple, iTunes software and/or do you have mdnsresponder.exe in the task manager?

A friend's netbook with Win7 Starter got a virus hard to remove, so it's time to format and reinstall everything. After reinstalling Win7 Starter 32-bit and properly validating it with the serial on the tag under the notebook (which is strangely different from the serial I stripped from the registry), updated everything, installed and validated Office with original S/N, installed a few other essentials (MSE, Chrome, Adobe Reader, drivers from Sony website (but NOT the bloatware programs), 7-zip, etc) and installed linux in dual boot. Connected normally to my home router and I didn't see any problems with connection dropping, but wouldn't connect to my friend's wifi using windows - which is strange, because it always used to connect to it with no problems and no other smartphone/pc has problems connecting to it. It would tell me "wrong password" as soon as I hit enter, seemingly without checking wifi's password. I had no problems connecting when booted to linux, though.
Then I brought it back home, reinstalled everything from the start, re-updated everything, etc. While in windows, the netbook disconnected once from my home's wifi and would show a "red X" over the network icon, which I assumed to be because I was updating drivers, installing stuff, etc, so I just rebooted and everything worked normally. But this time win7 still wouldn't connect to her network, despite linux would connect normally. After fiddling with her router a little, I did manage to con... Read more

I am new here. I'm not even sure if this question is in the correct forum (I hope so). I have a Toshiba Satellite A305 laptop that I purchased a few months ago. In the last month, the wireless connection has been dropping like mad ! And more recently, when it drops, it says it can't find any wireless networks. I then have to perform a hard shut off (by holding the power button till it powers down) and wait a few minutes to turn it back on. I have uninstalled the wireless adapter and then reinstalled it and that didn't work either. Also, all the drivers are up to date. I am very frustrated at this point and don't know what to do. Any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated !!

Thanks !!
 

Answer:Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100 problem

It is always a VERY good idea to check the microfilters (if using ADSL) which are fitted into your phone sockets and make certain that you have microfilters in any socket in the house. Microfilters are very cheap to get hold of and its worth having a few spare.

I stil use very old Toshiba A350D. Notebook works fine with Office, internet browsing and other light task.
But last days i notice a problem with wifi connection. Well, the card constantly switches off automatically. I use Intel Wifi ProSET tool and Windows 7 system tools.
Windows 7 indicator shown no avilable connections and ProSET indicator shown wifi disabled and ask for turn on wifi with hardware switcher, when hardware switcher (mechanical slider with LED on front) is in the 'on' position and LED flashes.
When this happens, the wifi card is still detected in the Windows device manager. I reinstalled all drivers, but this didn't fix the problem.
The card can be switched on and off several times per minute, but most often when the card is turned off it is hard to activate it again.
Fn + F8 works well, if WiFi Link works properly himself.
Is there still someone who remembers this model and met with such behavior?

Firstly, sorry for my english.  Now, where┤s the problem. I┤ve bought two days ago a brand new Lenovo Z570 with pre-installed Win7HP. I do not like it, so I updated it to Proff. version. I installed all the drivers, and when I moved to other room in flat, I was/am not able to connect to internet. Wifi signal is excellent in every room, but the only place where I can connect to internet is my table where is also the router. There┤s no problem in connectivity with other devices. My older NB Dell Inspiron 1520 with Broadcom wifi adapter has no problems with connection.  Yeah, and if I move in the same room where┤s router too just for a 3 metres, I cannot connect to internet, but the signal is great.  I dont think the problem could be in router ┤cause other devices (4 NB┤s) are able to connect to the internet in every room. Where could be problem and what I have to do? Thanks for replies

I upgraded my T500 to Windows 7 Professional from Vista Business.  Since upgrading, I have been unable to obtain satisfactory WiFi connectivity.  Symptoms are that I cannot stream from either the internet or my local server without experiencing periodic interruptions and/or total drops.  I've tried reinstalling the driver, replacing the WiFi card itself, and adjusting the parameters associated with the adapter card.  Nothing seems to help.  I also own a T61 laptop which I also upgraded from Vista Business to Windows 7 Professional, and I have had no problems with WiFi connectivity on that machine.  It also has an Intel Wifi adapter but a different model.  Both laptops connect to my LAN and the internet through the same D-Link wireless access router. I'm beginning to suspect that the Windows 7 driver for this particular WiFi adapter is flawed.  Has anyone in this forum had a similar experience? Thanks in advance for your comments/assistance.

Hi Guys,
This is Viral. I am using an Acer laptop model ASPIRE 4736 since the last five years. There haven't been much issues with it. except for the battery and thats it.

I tried searching the net for this issue using my office laptop and found that a system restore would help to solve this issue. Since I remembered that I updated Java as well as there was this ad software which got installed and I had unistalled it. So I did a system restore and then when I opened the device manager, I am not able to see intel r wifi link 5100 driver on it. I tried restarting my laptop and did everything and couldn't find the driver(it was there before the system restore). But later on the same day, the driver got installed automatically and the WiFi started working but only for a couple of minutes after the restart and then it stopped. So  I did the system restore again to the date when everything was working perfectly and when i did that, again my intel r wifi link 5100 driver is not shown on the device manager(network adapters).

Hi there.
Over the weekend I picked up a set of TP Link WPA4220 Powerline (with Wifi) Extenders and a pair of TL PA-411 wired extenders.
This should give me wired extenders in 3 rooms and a wifi boost in one of those rooms. The wired system all works fine but the wifi is a different matter.
The wifi extender is paired to the same SSID as my main Sky router and I can see both devices working properly, however there is absolutely no performance improvement in the room(s) which previously had patchy wifi and now have the wifi extender in. It's like the extender is having no impact at all.
Wifi quality on my Galaxy Note 2 and wife's Iphone 4s have not improved with the addition of the wifi extender.
The internet on the xbox360 in my son's room was sketchy on wifi without the extender, and there was no improvement with the wifi extender switched on, so I have hardwired this now.
I tested the kit with some speed tests around the house via speedtest.net, using both wired and wireless on a laptop and wireless on my phone, and all speeds and pings are almost identical with the TP Link wifi extender switched on or off.
I then used an Android app called Wifi Analyzer which can see the main router and TP Link extender and reports on both.
The Sky router signal sits at -40db ("excellent") when next to it, dropping to -60 ("medium") when in the bedroom with patchy wifi (and the extender in it).
The TP Link wifi signal is sat at -60 (+/-3) all the time in the bedroom an... Read more

Answer:TP Link Powerline with Wifi - No Wifi performance boost...?

It sounds like you are still connecting to your router rather than the extender.
I have a range extender and the SSID is the same as the router but with _EXT tagged on the end so in order to connect a device to it I have to go into windows networking and attach to the extender otherwise it will automatically attach to the router as in the past but I guess you have already tried this.

Hi,
I have recently purchased a Sony Vaio Laptop with wifi support that is inbuilt or onboard. I already have a Asus P5E3 Deluxe motherboard at my home with ram 2 gb, 9800 gtx card and a quad core processor. Now, I connect this pc with a broadband connection at home running 1mbps speed. This motherboard also has a wifi onboard connection. What I am trying to do is setup this wifi connection so that my laptop can also connect to the internet wirelessly. For this I have installed the wifi driver of Asus (something called Asus WiFi-AP @n software) and configured it with giving it a proper connection name and a password. I have successfully done all the wifi network setup wizard on the pc and it is working well. Now the problem is that, my laptop is able to find this wifi connection but after sometime it gives an error saying to troubleshoot network connection and the wifi network disappears from the laptop and again i have to search for this wifi network and the cycle continues. Similarly, when I am trying to connect my Nokia e90 mobile phone with the pc via wifi, my phone is able to pickup the wifi connection and sometimes it is able to connect to the internet and I am also able to browse different websites but sometimes it gives me a gateway time out error. So, can anyone tell me how can i connect my sony vaio laptop to the internet wirelessly by using the Asus P5E3 Deluxe WiFi-AP @n connection?

Hi Guys,

First off can I apologise for probably asking one of the most asked questions on the planet but I am very new to the whole linking TV and Laptop game and simply have got lost with all the various hints tips etc that is about. My question is simple what cables etc will I need to be able to watch and hear what is being played on my laptop to my Sony Bravia HDTV, some advice specifies one cable, others say this and others say that. I'll try and list what I think is useful information below:

Sony Bravia

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-KDL-20S3000-Widescreen-Bravia-Freeview/dp/B000VZ846G

The above link to the Amazon website where I purchased the product has full technical details but a quick run down says that:

2x Scart, 1x HDMI and it also states PC Interface VGA (HD-15) but I dunno what the last one means.

The laptop spec is as follows:

Fujitsu Siemens Amilo PA 2548

http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.203-4110.aspx

The above link to the Tesco website where I purchased the product again has full spec but basically it says that the output is DVI-I.
Thank you in advance for any help you guys can offer, again all I really want to know is what cables/other accessories I will need to be able to link the audio and video together from the laptop to the TV.

I recently bought a Sony Vaio VPC laptop with Windows 7. We are using a D Link DSR 2640R router supplied by Virgin Broadband which hasn't caused us a problem over the past year until we bought the vaio.

Everyday, bang on every 5 mins the internet disconnects and reconnects on the vaio, but this doesnt happen on any of our other laptops which are also on windows 7.

Anybody have any ideas as to why this keeps happening?

Thanks,

Rach.

Hi All, I cannot connect my Sony TV KDL46EC640 to the internet. I had this issue last year and all I did was change my wireless network channel and it was fine for about 1 year.

I can connect on my wifi network via my phone and computer. When I search for wireless networks from my TV I cannot find any networks. I contacted Sony and they recommend to reset the tv.

If you're on Windows 10 go to Settings >> Network & Internet >> Wi-Fi >> Set ON. Also check if your laptop has a dedicated Wi-Fi On/Off button (Function keys). Make sure that's turned on as well. If that doesn't work then try reinstalling the Wi-Fi drivers from Sony's or the Wi-Fi card's device manufacturer site.

1. Just bought a Sony VAIO TT series and was trying to get logged on to the MacDonalds (Cloud?) wifi. It took ages to go through the leaflet they provide and then I got the message network not available. I had to do all the steps manually there was no "wizard" or automatic connection. First time I've ever tried this.

When entering a wifi hotspot should the wireless network appear in Manage Wireless Networks? This certainly didn't happen in MacDonalds. My wireless switch on the laptop is turned to "on" but how do I know if it's working. It seems ridiculously difficult to find a wifi connection. Am I doing something wrong? Does each hotspot need this complicated manual configuration?

The laptop works fine at home with a router and i also have a broadband "3" mobile dongle which connects fine.

2. Also getting message "Windows Media Player has stopped working". Why? How can I fix this.

The laptop is brand new by the way.

Any help much appreciated. Advice in idiot format please for a non IT/PC beginner, thanks.

Answer:pc to sony wifi tv bravia ex308

It depends on what you want to do, the lan connection gives you access to files on your pc. If you want to view the the pc desktop or play dvd or video from the pc and view on the tv you will need a hdmi cable to connect the two together, if your pc video card doesn't have a hdmi output you may need a converter.So decide what you want to do, find what connections you have for video output on the pc if required and get the cables to match.

my question is when i try to connect via WIFI it's say it's turn off.. how to turn on now?

Answer:how to turn on Wifi in sony Vaio

Do you have a physical button or switch on your laptop which you can push? Almost all laptops have this feature so that you can turn the wireless off.

If not then you should be able to force it by going to Start> Control panel

Once opened click on 'Network and Internet'



Afterwards, click on 'Networking and Sharing Center'



From here you want to click on 'Change Adapter Settings'



Now, right click on the wireless adapter listed and click on 'Enable'. This should enable your wi-fi card



Hope This Helps,
Josh!

For extra information I want to add that I have a neighbor who has a WIFI installed also and he broadcasts his SSID. Maybe this can be a cause.

Question: Wifi link speed

Hello, I have an X200 laptop, and I'm making voip calls.Sometimes I have a very bad conversation quality, even that I'm connected to the WIFI with 5 bars and there is a very good internet bandwidth.The strange thing is that when the link speed is constant (for example 2 Mbps or 54Mbps), the conversatin quality is very good. But when it changes on the scale from 1mbps to 54mbps every 5 seconds, the call quality is poor.It happens at my house and also in cafes. Why does the link speed changes when I have 5 bars?Is it possible to solve it? Thank you very much,I'll be glad if someone can help me, because I'm talking over my SIP application every day and I wish that the call quality will always be good. Mark.

Answer:Wifi link speed

> Why does the link speed changes when I have 5 bars?
 
Basically you may have a strong signal indication, but there may be a lot of contention for the use of the radio band that the signal is in.
 
WiFi uses a shared medium.  Achieveable data throughput will vary with the number of other users concurrently accessing any access point in the vicinity, and will also vary if there are other devices want to use the Wi Fi channel space.  WiFi operates on what is effectively unlicenced wireless spectrum, so you can be contending with a range of other non-WiFi devices in the same wireless spectrum.
 
Cheers,

Good day to all of you. I just recently got a VIOS over the holidays and used it to help land me a graphics job for a promotions company. Last week I was over at a friend's house and while she was dealing with angry boyfriend I decided I'd hide out and work on some designs that are in due in a few days. I start tweaking with my most recent creation and randomly decided to see if there's a WiFi access in her place and lo and behold there is. So I get as far as Google, and she comes to let me know that she has to take me home cuz angry boyfriend wouldn't let up. I get home and my WiFi now no longer works. I don't understand.

Here's what is going on:
I turn the switch on and the green light DOES NOT TURN ON. The SmartWi Connection Utility DOES pop up saying:
Power: On
Status: Disconnected

Here's what I've tried:
EVERYTHING from resetting router, to other locations to Diagnosis, which only repeatedly tells me I need to turn on my WiFi and that there should be a switch I need to flip (gee thanks, I got that already! nice assesment of the situation!).

I don't know what's up.

I talked to a friend and he suggested that it's a common error with VIOS and that unless I have the warranty - which I'm still waiting on word about - it'll be about $60 to fix.

I googled up the issue and so far haven't seen much of anything at all about it, so I figured since I did read a couple posts on here that seemed knowledgeable, ... Read more

Answer:No WiFi connection between Sony Bravia TV and Netgear

I have moved to a thread of your own

Is this a TV that will not connect ? - as thats the post that you replied on
If so whats the make and model
if not - please provide full details of what equipment you have and what is not working

That ipconfig /all is showing a default gateway IP address of 0.0.0.0

IP addresses of all zeros are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
Firewall / security suite
DHCP Service not running.
Duplicate IP address on the network.
Bad NIC card drivers.
Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG etc

Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.

Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.

Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.

uninstall the adapter and restart PC - windows will re-install the drivers

First I want to apologize if I have put this in the wrong forum.For the past 3 months or so, whenever my Sony Vaio restarts itself to install updates, I have problems logging onto wifi. I will try to log on, it will take forever, then I get a message saying, "The Connection was unsucessful" and "This computer currently has limited connectivity to 'JoeBob' ". So far, the only way I have found to solve this problem is by using system restore, which has worked until today. What I need to know is, A) how can i PERMANENTLY fix this problem, or B) Can I fix this problem at all, and if so, is it going to cost me an insane amount of money?

Answer:Problems with Sony Vaio connecting to Wifi

You could try disabling or enabling the wireless adapter. The problem on some laptops with connecting to home network or other networks you are allowed is intermittent. It happens to me sometimes. I manage wireless network by deleting unnecessary profile.  There are also VAIO updates that would likely resolve certain issues such as updates/patches on certain manufacturing onboard components.

I'm having the same problem with my T500 (same wireless adapter, Intel 5300 AGN) since upgrading from Vista Business to Win 7 Professional.  I had no problems with wireless connectivity under Vista.  From what I can tell, this seems to be a problem with the 5300 adapter running under Win 7 on the T400/500 platforms.  I've tried everything, and I haven't been able to find a resolution on this forum up to this point.  I believe this is a problem Lenovo owes its customers a solution for.

Just found out about the Nebo WiFi Dialup Link for $49.50..Seems like on e-bay there were a lot of favorable comments about this product. Some say it's slightly slower than hardwire but others report it even is slightly faster ??
Just wondering if anybody has any experience with this produce. Currently I have several phone jacks throughout the house which has worked for me but it would be nice to work outside when the weather improves.

I have the WiFi LINK for PS3/PSP/NDSL/Wii. I am trying to connect my Wii to the internet thru my computer. The Wii will connect to the WiFi Link but the WiFi Link will not connect to the internet even though my computer is connected to the internet. I believe the problem is my PPPoE connection. I have DSL thru ATT and I am using their Westell Wirespeed DSL modem.

I have followed all the directions provided at http://www.mayflash.com/pc/pc041/001.htm and it still will not connect. My computer is running Windows XP professional and it connects to the internet by using the SBC Connection Manager. How do I get this to work?

I just thought I would write a little something for the people on this forum struggling with Wi-Fi range issues. I solved mine after many problems using a couple of high-wattage items from wifi-link.com.

Here is my situation:
I live in a rural area serviced by Charter cable. I have the 10Mb down / 1Mb up service (which has been working great for me, btw). The problem came when my sister moved a couple of streets away from me. She just separated from her husband and they have yet to work out the alimony/child support issues, so she is kinda light on money right now. Unfortunately, her children "attend" the ONLINE middle / high school. Obviously she requires high-speed internet access, but would have a hard time affording the cost. So, being the loving brother that I am, I told her, "Hey, don't worry about it, I'll hook you up to my network and you can share my connection." She said, "Can you do that? I live too far away to string a cable across the neighborhood." I assured her I could do it using Wi-Fi. I then started making my own YAGI potato chip can antennas. I am an experienced A+-certified technician, so I figured it would be no big deal. Well, long story short, my antennas sucked. NO SIGNAL. I must have aimed and re-aimed the things for hours. I started to worry that I had bitten off more than I could chew. I did NOT want to tell my sister that I had failed. So I went looking on the web for some cheap antennas... Read more

Hi there guys,it's my first post on this forum even although I should've asked here first. I have the same problem with the network wifi adapter as mentioned in the previous thread with this subject: it happens to disconnect and after that it doesn't appear in Device Manager for some time. Ussually I go there 'scan for hardware changes' and it appears back, but sometimes it doesn't come back for good and I need to restart my laptop. So..this is quite sad. I've read all the opinions about this and all solutions so far and nothing worked for me. I checked my driver on Intel and it says: Product DetectedIntel(R) WiFi Link 5300 AGNCurrent Driver Installed14.3.2.1This device is unknown or unsupported. Please contact the manufacturer for possible updates.So I downloaded their newer driver which is 15.3 and still the driver version remains 14.3.  This is becoming quite annoying becouse it happens to disconnect right when I am downloading or writing an email.        Did someone from tech support found a solution for this? please! I would appreciate a lot. Thank you. p.s. I am running win8 pro.

Answer:About Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN

I suspect there are variants of the Intel 5300 card that will work in Lenovo systems, and other versions of the card that are designed for other systems (like HP, etc) and will not work in a Lenovo. It's possible that the 5300 card you have wasn't designed for Lenovo platforms, and as a result doesn't match up with the bios whitelist on your system. Did the system originally come with this card, or was the card installed sometime later? If installed later, was the card supposedly compatible with Lenovo systems (incl your model)? I picked up my new 5300 card from eBay sometime back... it was listed as compatible with my Lenovo T400 (incl a few other models), and once I installed it (and installed the driver, updated access connections, rebooted the system etc), it came right up at 450mbps when near the access-point. Finally, the 15.x (I'm assuming Lenovo) driver might not support this older 5300 card... my T400 is running a 14.x driver for Win7 64-bit which does support the 5300, but I noticed the 15.x driver for my system doesn't support the older 5300 (and states that in the release notes for this ver). That's all I can come up with for now... hope something here helps you out. And keep me posted... will check this thread from time to time. Mike

I'm a bit of a rookie when it comes to Networking but here goes.

I've got a D-Link DSL-604+ 22Mbps Wireless router with built-in ADSL modem and a D-Link DI-624 108Mbps Wireless Broadband router.

Obviously the DI-624 that I recently purchased doesn't feature an in-built modem so instead of blowing $50 on a D-Link ADSL modem with Ethernet connectivity I was hoping to use the ADSL modem feature in my old Wireless router (604+) as my modem for the DI-624.

I called D-Link support but unfortunately after an hour of following live instructions from their support staff, I ended up nowhere.

They instructed me to disable DHCP and NAT features on the 604+ and plug an ethernet cable into it's LAN PORT 1 and plug the other end into the WAN PORT on the 624.

I plugged an ethernet cable into the DI-624 LAN PORT 1 and into my computer's Ethernet port in order to configure the DI-624.

After configuring the DI-624 via its web configuration web page, I could get the 108Mbps network up and running but without the access to DSL.

If anyone any of the above mentioned products and can provide a tip or a link to a guide or something, that would be great.

Thanks

HiCan anyone give me some advice please.I have a relatively recent Toshiba laptop. Model Satellite L300-1AQ with Windows Vista Home Premium.I have a holiday home and would like to use the computer there. I have a BT account with access to BT Openzone. There is a neighbour 15mtrs away who is registered for the Openzone scheme. I am able to link into his system with WiFi but the signal is not strong enough. Two bars max.Looking at the internet, I can see, as usual, that there appear to be a million solutions. Boosters etc etc. Can somebody point me in the right direction please. I notice that BT sell a Hawking Hi-Gain Wireless 300n USB network dish adaptor and a Hawking Wireless G dish adaptor.The High gain 300n gives speeds up to 300Mbps and the G model 54Mbps.Will this work or are there any better solutions.Thanks in advance.John.I will post this on networking as well.

Answer:WiFi link. Signal weak

firstly has you neighbour given permission for you to pig-e-back on his broadband - it is illegal if he has not. If permission is granted you will have to experiment with position. In my home certain rooms have no trouble connecting but others cannot. Where his wireless router is poitioned will also make a difference. The higher the transmitter the better the signal. If he uses wifi could he move it to the closest point to your place?

That TP Link has almost 800 reviews on Amazon and it's almost all four star reviews. The cost of consumer wireless devises has become very affordable. I use those little $5 USB wifi dongles on my Raspberry Pi's and they work great. The box I'm on now has a low cost NetGear USB dongle and the speed and reliability is great. I'd buy it.

I have a cable modem box hooked up to a Dlink DI 614+. Im in my Dlink router config page, everything is still the same, wireless still enabled, password is still set. in the system tray, the wireless connection box doesn't show any wireless network, not even my neighbors. I tried manually adding the Wifi network in the Wireless connection network menu, but it doesn't seem to do anything. A few days ago i did try to network share my macbook pro with my desktop(which i did get working) not sure if that might have caused the wireless failure. But it is odd that the pc and macbook pro now stop working, but the powerbook is fine.
any suggestions ?

In general these types of problems can be fixed by resetting the router. After resetting the router you will need to go through the routers set up page and enter your SSID, password, and other wireless connection settings.

Hey everyone! I'm new here. Currently have an apple router and have had it for maybe 6-7years. I think it is finally on its last leg. It has become unreliable at times.

The question I have is about the TP-link c7 wifi router. I have a 2 story house that's around 1600sf. The wife and I are constantly online and we also use playstation vue. So that takes up a lot of bandwidth. Would the TP-link c7 be the right router for us?

Thanks for your help!
 

Answer:Reviews on TP-link c7 wifi router

did the apple router work throughout the house ok
if so , you may want to think about an Apple replacement

its going to be difficult to say if it will work reliably and with high speed across the 2 stories, as the construction of the property and also other signals in the area can all cause interference.

Something else to consider , is the powerline adapters with wireless and cable units
This uses the electrical wiring of the house - again the quality and speed would depend on the electrical wiring of the house

I have set up a passcode for my sisters wifi as it was not enabled by the tech that set up her D Link/wifi.

I couldn't believe that wasn't taken care of but I am not that wise about all aspects, so thought I would ask someone here.

I renamed her SSID to a private name rather then dlink, the way it was, and I set up a passcode so others that want to use their computer here at her place will need to login using that key. I figured her neighbors could bleed off her signal, but even if they aren't doing that, it seems to me securing your signal is best. Am I right?

My second question to do with that, is, I set it up on my computer because I was on her signal of course, but she was on her computer, which she said she was going to be off it, and I didn't know. Her connection is still on and she hasn't used the passcode yet? Do I have to set up her computer with the same info as I did on the router from my laptop?

Sorry if this sounds confused, I am a bit. denise
 

Answer:D Link Wifi Security Pass Key

You're headed down the right path. You are correct in your thinking with regard to changing the SSID name and setting up a passcode in the router.

And, yes, the passcode will have to be saved in her computer before it can connect to the Internet.
