Other Common Problems

Still having problems? Here are a few quick tips to consider:

  • Try testing all your wireless equipment in close proximity to rule out problems related to the range of your wireless networking equipment.

  • Turn off wireless encryption (WEP) while setting up your equipment. Turn encryption back on once you have made a connection.

  • Can you access the Internet? If you can, but can't access computers on your network for file and printer sharing, you likely have a network settings problem in Windows. Check the settings of a computer that's connecting and make sure the settings are the same for the computer that can't connect. No access to the Internet? Check your broadband modem: Do you have a link light that shows whether your ISP is up and running? (Most broadband modems have three lights that should be lit continuously: One light for the connection to the ISP's network, another that shows a connection to your network, and one that shows the modem is getting power.)
