Troubleshooting, Support, and Warranty
Troubleshooting
I can’t connect to the Internet wirelessly.
If the light on the front of the Router is solid blue, then your
Router is connected to the Internet. You may not be connected
to the Router’s wireless network. Please refer to “Connect Your
Wireless Devices” on page 21 of this manual for instructions.
If your Windows XP computer is running SP2, you will
not be able to set up the Router via the wireless setup
process. You will need to either update to Windows XP
SP3 or complete the setup via a wired connection.
47
Troubleshooting, Support, and Warranty
I can’t connect to the Internet wirelessly and my
network name is not listed in Available Networks.
My wireless network per formance is slow, inconsistent,
suffers from weak signal, or I’m having difficulty maintaining a
VPN connection.
1.Verify that your Router is on and the
front-panel light shows solid blue.
Wireless technology is radio-based, which means connectivity
and the throughput performance between devices
decreases when the distance between devices increases.
Other factors that will cause signal degradation (metal is
generally the worst culprit) are obstructions such as walls
and metal appliances. Note also that connection speed may
decrease as you move farther away from the Router.
2.If you are far from the Router, you might try moving
closer to see if you might have been out of range.
3.Using a computer attached to the Router via a network cable,
visit http://router/ and ensure that “Broadcast SSID” is ON.
This setting is found on the “Channel and SSID” page.
In order to determine if wireless issues are related to
range, we suggest temporarily moving the computer
within 10 feet from the Router if possible.
Changing the wireless channel—Depending on local
wireless traffic and interference, switching the wireless
channel of your network can improve performance and
reliability. See the section titled “Changing the Wireless
Channel” for instructions on how to choose other channels.
48
Troubleshooting, Support, and Warranty
Limiting the wireless transmit rate—Limiting the wireless transmit
rate can help improve range and connection stability. Most wireless
cards have the ability to limit the transmission rate. To change this
property in Windows, go to the Windows Control Panel, open “Network
Connections”, and double-click on your wireless card’s connection. In
the properties dialog, select the “Configure” button on the “General”
tab, then choose the “Advanced” tab and select the rate property.
I’ve installed this new Router and some of my network clients
(computers, game consoles, etc.) are now unable to connect.
Your new Router came pre-configured with a network name and
password, found printed on an attached card. All clients must use this
network name and password to connect wirelessly to your Router.
You will need to find the network settings on your client, select the
network name printed on the card from the list of available networks,
and enter the password when prompted to join the wireless network.
Wireless client cards are usually set to automatically adjust
the wireless transmit rate for you, but doing so can cause
periodic disconnects when the wireless signal is too weak; as
a rule, slower transmission rates are more stable. Experiment
with different connection rates until you find the best one
for your environment. Note that all available transmission
rates should be acceptable for browsing the Internet. For
more assistance, see your wireless card’s user manual.
