Hello there, i'm a virgin media customer, and purchased a Buffalo cable router about 8 months ago. I have a desktop pc, but the reason i got a wireless router is to play with my ps2 online, and also incase anyone friends/family members come round with there laptops to use wirelessly.
Over the past few days, the router fails to connect wirelessly, and i have to use a spare ethernet cable for the laptop which is my cousins... When i try and connect to a network on my cousins laptop...it shows that it can see my router...but when i click on connect, it then says windows cannot connect, to the router..which i call geordie. I'm very frustrated about this...any suggestions please??
hi forum editor, yes ive already entered the key, its just that my connection keeps dropping and i have to be plugging in the ethernet cable for a while..for instance right now on the laptop it does not seem to see my router, even though the wireless g light for my router is on, its getting very frustrating..any suggestions?
Have you checked the signal strength of your wireless network? If you're using the laptop wirelessly at some distance from your router, perhaps the wireless signal just isn't strong enough to maintain contact.
Hover your cursor over the network icon in your system tray, and you should get a popup report showing whether the network is connected, plus its signal strength.
