Yeah it shows up.
No worries, thanks for the help
I got home WLAN
One of desktop has wireless card when ever i turn it on or restart it seems like it dosent pick up an IP from dhcp so i always have click repair manually and ideas guys ?
What OS? Does it pick up 169.*.*.* address or something? Go to device manager and look at the settings for the card and see if power saving mode (or something similar is turned on) - i had this problem once, once turned off worked fine.
I am running XP yea it picks up 169. some thing
Are there any recommended wireless network cards?
I'm not sure whether I should get a 54mbits or 108mbits card?
The cards I have been looking at are:
Which would you recommend out of these or is there another one to look out for?
Find each computers IP and see if you can ping one from the others. If you can, just type \\ followed by the IP in My Computer address bar.
if your getting a 169 address it means that your connection is timing out before it picks up and acknowlegdes dhcp, either increase the timeout for dhcp or move your ap or antenna to pick up the signal quicker and better.
running XP and bigpond cable
Thinking of getting Netgear WGR614 with this NETGEAR WG311 54MBPS WIRELESS PCI ADAPTOR.
Should work like a treat without much configuration and drop out?
WG311 is an awesome card for the price - Atheros based - meaning it's compatible with airodump in Windows
thanks mate. Just wanted to know
Anyone know why my wireless speeds only hit 1.1MB/s when both adapters show full signal strength and report they're connected at 54Mbps?
If I remove the AP and run the 2 PC's in Ad-hoc I can get around 2.4MB/s but infrastructure mode cuts this in half
PC1 - DWL-G510
The router is operating in 802.11G mode only - .11b has been disabled.
I've tried changing the channel from 11 to something else but that made no difference.
Currently using WPA encryption - which I understand would slow things down a little - but not by 50%.
I'm tempted to buy a new router and see if things improve - but if they don't then its a waste of money :S
Just where the hell in Windows Vista do we manually set up a wireless connection between PC and Router?
This auto detect BS is driving me nuts?
What I am also after is that page that shows both my network cards?
(I can not wait until the next version of windows comes out. Hopefully it's not as clumsy as this)
Never mind, I found it.
hey guys i changed my mind yet again.
Thinking of getting the D-Link 624 wireless router. I had a look at the D-Link website, but it dont tell me what is the most current revision.
Is it hard to secure wireless network?
Linksys WMP54G, don't get 108mbits, it's useless
Stay away from D-Link! Securing a wireless network is simple as.
stay away from d-link? What about this one
Linksys make very good routers and network cards, just stay away from their adsl modems and you'll be fine.
If you want an all-in-one adsl modem/router get a Billion.
thanks mate. What abt netgear. are they good too?
I have a newer netgear and they are not nearly as bad as they used to be
that said they aren't as good as linksys with custom firmware on it but they are really good if you aren't technologically minded or slack as everything is pretty much automatic to setup
The linksys 150n is cheap and runs dd-wrt with the wrt54g you have to watch out for version 7 as they used a dodgey atheros chipset and it sucked
Billion make amazing router modem voip combos and have a watchdog timer on them which is a nice feature that I am surprised that all routers don't have
I currently have a ZxYEL 2602-61C from TPG internet, ive had it for about 2 or so years, and about a week ago it started to be very unstable through the wireless.
It gets very hot ever since we got it, so i put heatsinks on top of it to keep it cool. It ran very stable throughout those 2 years until now.
Did a hard reset about 3 or 4 times this week, and on a cold day its fine, but on a hot day it chrashes, so i think this routers starting to go flaky.
Looking to replace my wireless setup, focusing mainly on the wireless devices.
I can get a standard Belkin N1 router for free through work (they have no n1 Vision...NOO), and im thinking of putting it on top of my ZxYEL and make that handle the wireless.
so what you guys think of this router? should i be getting a billion to replace my entire modem, router, wireless, voip setup?
Which wireless protocol is best for stability and throughput?
I always thought that 802.11b was the best, but now with all these new protocols I'm not sure.
I'm also partial to dd-wrt on my buffalo router. Are there any oz availiable routers that run dd-wrt?
