Hi Everyone,

I am trying to get my laptop to connect to my roter and it isnt working.
It tells me that I am out of range, but I am right beside the roter.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Jan

Another note, when I go to the IP address to view my router settings, it tells me that my session has timed out and I cannot log in. Any help would be appreciated.

umm... have you connected to your router before? Is the wireless port switch on?

Otherwise, make sure your router doesn't have any security encryptions, and it should work just fine.


Is your router plugged in?

My router is working, how do I check to see about encryptions on my laptop? Just got my laptop, trying to figure it out.

I am hoping some additional information will give someone some ideas.
My laptop will work at another home that has wireless internet. But not my own.
Is there someplace on my stationary computer that I should be checking that might has security issues.
When my laptop tries to connect it, shows a connection for a second then disconnects.
Any help would be appreciated. I am totally out of ideas, thank you
:thumbsup:

Does it prompt for a code or anything? What operating system are you using?


From what company do you get your internet off of?

Is it your router(did you buy it personally), or did whatever company that set it up provide it?
