Connectivity of the wireless router problem

I have a Cisco's Linksys WRT160N wireless router.  After it is up and running, all my wireless devices work fine.  My sons Wii for my laptop, my wifes iPod Touch. But the strangest thing is happening.  I have problems connecting to the internet with my desktop computer that is hard wired to the linksys router.

Often I can connect any... other times it's quite slow compared to when I plug my office directly to a cable modem.  Finally, sometimes certain aspects of the Web page will appear while others won't.

Question: Is damaged?  Or is there something that I am missing.  You would think it would be right forweard enough... OH, I have also replaced the cables from the desktop to the router and have already done all the reboot that I care to do as well as redo the ip address in the part of the repair of my control panel.

Any ideas?


Access the Page of configuration of your router and lower the MTU size of the router to Auto/1500 to 1400.

    Hi Virginia,

    Thanks for posting your query in the Microsoft Community Forums.

    After the description of the problem, I understand that you can not connect to a wireless network on windows vista computer.

    I appreciate your efforts on this issue, however no need for you to worry we are here to help and guide you in the right direction.

    Help me with the information below.

    -Don't you make changes on the computer before this problem?

    I suggest you to disable temporarily security software and then check if you are able to connect.

    Method 1

    You can also temporarily disable the security software and check if it works.

    If disabling the security software solves the problem, then contact the manufacturer of the specific security software to fix the problem.

We recommend the process that this article describes to enable programs to operate as they are designed for, or to implement specific program features. Before you make these changes, we recommend that you evaluate the risks that are associated with implementing this process in your particular environment. If you decide to implement this process, take additional measures to protect the system. We recommend that you use this process only if you really need this process.

    Method 2

    Reset the router and see if that helps.

    Note: to help you reset the router, you can consult the manual that came with the router or the router contact manufacturer.

  • I bought a Sony BDP - S185 connect Netflix Blu - ray player. I can't connect to the wireless router. Why?

    I just bought the blu - ray BDP S-185 drive so that I can access the internet (netflixetc.) on my new samsung tv. I tried to connect to my wireless router, but repeat me my connection type iswired and the connection has failed. Can I connect this player to a wireless router or should it be connected to the router? Difficult because the router is in the basement and the television on the third floor. Can I use the separator on phonejack (existing in the 3rd and.) and connect the two phone and blu ray player or do I need a netgear typedevice to connect this player? Thank you in anvance understand help. Sorry, it's so rambled butI am very confused here!

    Hi Robert,.

    Welcome to the community of Sony!

    This Blu - ray player is the BIV (Internet Video base) base model and does not support the wireless Internet connection. I suggest that you use the Ethernet LAN cable to connect the player to your router/modem.

    Thank you for your message.

  • When I try to connect to the wireless router, it asks you the password I put it and he then asked again and will not accept the password. all other computers (without windows 7) connect correctly.

    My new computer has windows 7 when I try to connect it to my router it ask the password, then he asks the network password I put in the same password and it does not accept it. I spent ove an hour on the phone with a very helpful and confused expert to the Virgin. He tells me that the password only I need to communicate with the router is the main. We tried a lot of things all very technical and finally he gave up. Other computers with vista on connect very well with no problems at all.

    The network is fine and all the settings are fine. Occasionally, it connects via a home network but then it stops. When I try to communicate with the printer wireless signal stops and starts.

    I don't hold much hope of a response that experts were left very confused by this first abandoned after 45 minutes and the second lastered over an hour are totally flumaxed and blame windows 7

    But everyone told me that windows 7 was supposed to be the best

  • Connection to the wireless router

    I currently have intermittent connection problems with my router with my wireless Vista adapter.

    Sometimes, either after booting, or the disconnection of a single account and connection on Vista another account; I can not connect. Generally, the error is expressed as security key is incorrect. However, I know that the phrase/key is correct.

    Sometimes, the adapter is disconnected and then re - set it solves the problem, while other times I had to delete and re-create the profile Wireless under the wireless network connection control panel. However most of the time I have to use to turn off the router and turned on again. It almost always does, the connection works again.

    Also, whenever a while the internet connection stops, usually when I just clicked on a web link.

    Do you know what could be the problem?

    Some journal entries you posted State "unknown user name or bad password".  This is the type of connection 2 which are attempts to connect to your PC locally (i.e. just started).  You also said earlier that when you are prompted for a security key to connect to your router, it sometimes rejects because the passkey is incorrect.  One thing that comes to mind is that you have a key that is stick on your keyboard, which is originally evil type your logon password and security key.

    Open Notepad on your computer and simply type anything.  Type your passwords and the security key passes a number of times and see if any characters repeat or not be typed at all.  If this is a Wireless keyboard, try replacing the batteries, otherwise a can of compressed air which will usually clear upward.

    If you constantly have to power cycle your router or disconnect your Wireless adapter to get a connection, then you have a hardware problem.  One of the errors you listed was "service temporarily stopped publishing because of a power event".  What happened when the error has been written?  Check with the manufacturer of these devices to see if they work properly.

    Are you able to connect to the router with an ethernet cable access to the internet without problem?

  • Why can't I access the modem when connected to the wireless router?

    I'm unable to access my DSL Modem 6100 Westell using when connected to the Netgear WNDR3400 wireless router. I can access it, however, when I connect directly to the ethernet port on the computer without going through the router. I've set up according to the instructions. Is it possible to correct the problem?

    This isn't a problem.  This is the standard behavior.  You are connected to the side LAN of the router that is isolated from the side WAN (uplink).  This is the mode of operation of routers.

  • Can connect to the wireless router, but not to the Internet

    Because I could not find this post, I published in my problem to

    Windows 7, connecting Local only, no Internet

    I think I described the problem a bit better here.

    I had a Gateway DX4300-17 with Windows 7 Home Premium for about six weeks. I connect to the Internet via a Netgear wireless router. My Internet connection dropped often, but I've always been able to reconnect to the Saturday. Since the start-up my computer Sunday, when I try to connect to the Internet, the system tells me that I am connected to the router, but there is no connection between the router and the Internet. I did a system restore to Friday, but it did not help. I searched the Knowledge Base and tried several things I found there. Running "sfc/scannow" indicates that all is well. I disabled the '6' Protocol (I don't remember the letters that were with this, but you probably know what I mean). This made no difference either. I thought I would ask for help here in the hopes of not having to restart the computer to the "hospital". That's a very different problem here barely a week. I need help, please.

    Hello Bill6009,

    Have you tried to boot your computer in SafeMode w/network to see if the problem persists?

    If so, try to perform a clean boot to see if you encounter the same problem.

    Please post back your results if we can help get your problem solved J

  • B210A Photosmart - server connection error and does not connect to the wireless router

    I have problems setting up and to connect my router to my new printer b210A. Everything goes well with the initial configuration, and when asked to connect to the network at the start, it works. Then he said that the printer requires updates, downloads of updates, reboots, asks me if I want to activate eprint and as soon as I said 'Ok', I get a "the server connection error" and it is then no longer connected to the network. When I get out of the "server connection error" screen and attempt to reconnect to the network, he says 'Success', prints a Test report wireless, but never connects.

    It's the 2nd printer that I have had in a week, given that the person of HP online chatting told me my first printer had problems of "hardware", after experiencing the same problems and I'll be recommended. So - I did, and now I'm running into the same issues. The number of 800 was NO HELP - after recommended I have unplug and reconnect, then telling me there were server errors (when the printer was not connected to the network).

    We will set an IP address of the printer with a special focus on DNS domains:

    -Print a the front of the printer Network Setup Page. Note the IP address of the printer.
    -Enter the IP address in a browser to reveal the internal settings of the printer.
    -Choose the network tab, then wireless along the left side, then on the IPv4 tab.
    -On this screen, you want to set a manual IP address. You must assign an IP address outside the range that the router sets automatically (called the DHCP range). You can find the beach DHCP from the router using its internal settings page or in its manual. Use the CD that came with your router or type the IP address of the router (ends para.1) in a browser.
    -Apply the subnet (unless you know it's different, if so, use it)
    -Enter the IP of your router (on the Page of the Network Config) for the gateway

    -For the first DNS and for the second use.
    -Click 'apply '.

    Now, stop the router and printer, start the router, wait, and then start printing.

    After that, you will have to redo 'Add printer' using the new IP address.
