Hey everybody. I'm having some issues with my Qwest pk5000 wireless modem.
Heres the deal. In the modem control panel (192.168.0.1), wireless is on, in wireless status everything checks out.
So it says it's on however nothing in my home that has wireless capability can detect it. The wireless light on the front of the modem wont even come on. (Not talking about the WPS light/button). I can connect fine when hardwired through PC, Laptop PC, and Macbook.
I've been through everything, resets, turning the wireless off and on (many times) Setting diff passwords, setting different ssid's, different channels etc. Just about everything. Even had to walk back through the Qwest set up a few times before I got full connectivity again. So I know the modem has fully reset.
Not much on this issue online, I'm hoping the wireless function isn't shot on this thing, I had it working a week ago while my sister was in town for a visit, after she left I ended up moving things around in my office and unplugged the modem, now its being a pain in the rear.
I need to connect my Android through wireless (wpa/wpa2) as my house has several 3G dead spots and that can be frustrating.
I'm stumped and for an advanced computer user thats a horrible place to be lol. It's kinda like the control panel isn't fully telling the modem to kick on WiFi.
Thank you for your comments in Advance.
