Wifi Connection Very Weak

We share a wifi connection but its very weak? We live on a static home park and have access to the sites router, the problem we have is that the signal is weak and sometimes we cant connect to router. Without connecting a wifi booster to the router is there a product or an antenna that i can connect to my pc that can capture a weak signal or an antenna that will capture a signal from a router that is a little to far away to give me a reasonable signal to prevent connection drop out.

Problem With Nintendo Ds Wifi Connection

Problems with nintendo ds wifi connection? We had to have the internet guy come over and fix our router, so we asked him about switching it to wep so i can get internet on my nintendo ds, and he said that wep isn't even broadcasted anymore. He said that i have to go onto the nintendo website and upgrade my nintendo ds to wpa, but i can't figure out how to do it. How can i do this?

Forgot Password To Wifi Connection

I forgot my password to my wifi connection. Okay, so i lost my password to my wifi connection. I know that you can change it by typing in the ip address to the web browser and then go to the security tab and change it. But whenever i type in my ip address it asks me for a username and password. People tell me that by default it is admin/admin. But that's not working. Is there anything else i can do besides resetting the router?

Gateway Connection When Connecting On Wifi

Randomly appearing gateway connection when connecting on wifi. I've never had this happen before. I was connecting to wifi, which i'm one of the bad people i guess, using someone's internet freely, but when i went to connect, on the network connections screen, there was a new "part" to it, away from my connection that said "gateway connection". I've never seen this before, and i'm guessing it was in the way of my connection, because my computer would tell me i'm connected, but when i went to my browser, it wasn't connecting. Also, now my connection says that it's connected, shared, and fire-walled. I've known it's fire walled, and i can't seem to get the right exception for it, when i go the exceptions part but that doesn't seem to cause a hassle like the gateway thing is. I'm wondering why randomly it was saying that i'm sharing my connection when it hasn't said that before, and also why this random gateway connection is appearing.

Kodak Printer Wifi Connection With Mac

How do i get my kodak printer to establish a wi-fi connection with my mac? I have a kodak esp-7 printer with wi-fi connectivity and have installed the printer software on my macbook pro laptop using the installation cd provided. I have made numerous attempts to print various documents but have achieved nothing. I have gone into the printer menu through the screen options on it and input the settings for wi-fi capability, also inputting the settings required through the mac's 'system preferences' menu under 'print and fax', changing different options with each attempt at printing always telling me on the mac screen to check my printer connections because it cannot be found!

I have looked under 'network' and 'sharing' folders in system preferences also, to see what could be changed there but have rendered the same result. Why can't my mac and printer make a wi-fi connection? I've had success through use with a usb cable but moving to a recent change of address now sees my print functions differently and have achieved success for my partner on her (windows) laptop, which takes advantage of the wi-fi facility.

Windows Vista Router Disconnects Wifi Connection

When using asus laptop it can connect wireless router (sky adsl) without issue, if the desktop which uses the same router disconnects it disconnects the wireless function from the laptop. Even rebooting both router and laptop fails to correct the problem. I suspect this is an ip address issue.

Turning Off Wifi Modem After Using Affects Connection Speed ?

Does by not turning off your wi-fi modem after using it affects your internet connection speed? My wi-fi speed was the fastest the first two months i installed it, but now, it's so slow i can't even watch youtube.could it be because my habit of not turning off the modem?

Issue With Dhcp Connection Wireless Connection Drop

I don't know why i keep getting this error message in the log for dhcp , it annoys a lot as it disconnects the wifi then reconnects and continues to do so for a few minutes. The ip address lease 192. 168. 1. 7 for the network card with network address 0xxxxxxxxxxxxx has been denied by the dhcp server 0. 0. 0. 0 (the dhcp server sent a dhcpnack message). I know there is an issue as the dhcp server should be 192. 168. 1. 1, it goes normal as in the log it shows that it gets the i. P from the correct dhcp but when the error happens it shows the dhcp server as to 0. 0. 0. 0. My wireless card is an atheros ar9285, my pc is a hp pavillion dv 7-3162nr laptop

How To Know Which Sp You Are Connected To Using Public Wifi ?

When you connect public wifi how can you tell which sp you're connected to? How can you tell which service provider (isp i mean) you're connected to when you do public wifi? For instance, i know starbucks & mcdonalds in the us use at&t. But how about when you're at some other location? Short of asking the workers who the isp is. They probably wouldn't know anyway.

Connect Wifi Printer

How to connect wifi printer? I got a wireless printer last week. I successful connected it to the pc and it works perfectly normal. However, i have laptop also and i wish i could print using the laptop also. I installed the printer's software on the laptop and it seemed as if everything would work- but it did not! When i go to control panel, it showed me the printer's brand (hp), which means that the laptop obviously recognizes the printer. However, when i go to printer's status, it is offline. How can i change the status? I'd be grateful if you told me what to do in steps! By the way, i've got a router also but i think it has nothing to do with that, or am i wrong?

Answer:- if the printer is connected to the router (wireless i presume) with a network cable, then you should be able to print to it with your laptop thru the router using the assigned network address of the printer, but you'll need to setup the network settings in the printer setup on your laptop. If the printer is attached to another computer, and that computer is attached to the router (again presuming it's wireless), then you'll need to setup print sharing on that computer, and it will always need to be on in order to print, as well as the shared properties on your laptop. You can also setup the printer to be physically attached to one computer and wirelessly to your laptop using what is referred to as "ad-hoc" wireless setup. All of these are options, but i don't know how you are setup.

Using Printer Connected By Wifi

How do you use your printer connected by wifi? I have just recently connected my printer to my wifi connection but i don't get how to use it now?

Answer:- my printer is wireless as well. What you do is load the disk into your laptop, or whatever your device is, then follow the instructions on there. Mine has me connect with a usb cable. After that, it'll instruct you to connect wirelessly with the network you use. I always have a problem with when i change my network. It has to stay with the same network or else it won't print.

Can't Connect To Wifi

I just got a new laptop with windows 7 and it works perfectly when im using a home connection that requires a password. But any public wifi i cannot connect. The locations do have connection, i just seem to be the only one who cant access it, like at school where my classmates can access it but i cant. It shows that i am connected but it says that i have limited connectivity and doesn't let me access the internet at all. I even disabled the firewall to see if that was the problem but i can't figure out what to do.
