Galaxy Note 8 vs iPhone X
I have a Belkin 54G router at home. We usually have up to 3 or 4 laptops connected and a Dell wirelss all in one printer.
Since i started using a password with WPA/PSK the router can not keep all these devises connected. When trying to connect to the network the security log of the router authenticates the mac address of the laptop but the laptop doesnt connenct fully, i think its not properly assigning an IP address. The printer gets disconnected also. I have reset the router, unplgged and repluged it with no solution. However if i change the router to have no security then all the laptops and printers connect fully and permanently.
Any ideas/solutions? I assume this is a router problem as all individual devices work properly at some point other than ther router.
In the router check the following is correct
Connection Type = PPPoA
Encapsulation Method: VCMUX
Keep Alive: On
User Idle Timeout: 4320
Check these setting on the wireless card on all computers connecting wireless and the network
Right click on Wireless Icon in the task bar Click Status-General-Properties
Click – Wireless Network Tab – In the “Preferred Network” display box highlight your network
name and click Properties
Tick “ Connect even if this network is not broadcasting”
Click Connection Tab – Tick “ Connect when this network is in range”
Click OK - Click Advanced Button – Select “ Access Point (Infrastructure) Network Only
Click - Close
At the top of display the type of Wireless Card will be displayed
Click Configure-Click-Advanced Tab
Check the following: -
‘Auto Connection Mode” is Enable
“Power Saving Mode” Set to Cam (Constantly Awake Mode)
Network Connection Setting
Click-Start- Setting-Network Connection-New Connection Wizard
Select-Connect to the Internet-Next
Select-Set Up My Connection Manually-Next
Select-Connect using a broadband connection that is always on
thanks, checked all those settings and no change.
could it be the type of security i am using? should i be using WEP or some other security type?
could it be a problem with having a wireless printer logged on?
do i need a different router?
I could be wrong, but I.m sure that I've read somewhere that if you have trouble keeping the wireless connection using WPA try using WEP. Something in my mind says that it mentioned that the router finds it easier using WEP.
Could be wrong, but worth a go.
