You can adjust the position of the Wireless Access Point, extend your TEW-AI75O to an optimal location, or move those wireless PCs closer to the Wireless Access Point. Q2. My access point indicates that it is receiving power, and my laptop is within range of the TEW-AI75O. However, my laptop does not receive any signals from my access point. A2. Make sure that you properly connect the antenna to the Wi-Fi Access Point. (See 2. hardware Installation) Q3. Dose the TEW-AI75O work with my IEEE 802.11a Wireless Router or Wireless Card? A3. Yes. The TEW-AI75O is compatible with IEEE 802.11a/b/g wireless devices. Q4. Is it necessary to use the tapping screws or the wall anchors that come with the TEW-AI75OB? A4.
