Hi guys,
Pulling my hair out with this one, hopefully some nice person can help me out there.
Im trying to get my wireless to work upstairs in my house. So I upgraded my wireless router to a netgear n600. Im now getting bars upstairs however its now saying "no network access" with the yellow triangle. It connects fine when Im right next to the router but as soon as I get 10 feet away it gives me the no network access. Ill have 5 bars and it will still say it. Ive tryed alot of things around the web to try to get it to work but nothing seems to help, so Im here. My phone connects fine upstairs so Im thinking its something between the computer and router. Im running a pc off the modem and I have a netbook that Im trying to get to work upstairs via wireless. any help is appreciated.

Is your phone a cellular phone?

Yes an iphone. running wifi. but the modem does have our phone hooked into it not sure if that matters or not, I assume not though.

Turn the phone off, and see if it gets better.

So you are still connected to the router ok but no internet access etc? If your phone still has access where your netbook drops out, then you have probably isolated the problem down to the netbook. You could test this by running a constant ping to the router ip and moving the netbook around the house, this will show you where your connection is dropping out. Did this netbook work ok on your previous router? It sounds like it didn't but this new router has maybe extended the signal a little further but not quite enough?

Ok so today I went and bought a Netgear Universal WiFi Range Extender (WN3000RP) to boost the signal upstairs, but it doesnt connect either... it wont even connect in the same room. Do you think its possibly the cable providers signal?

If your phone or any other device is working with the access point, then I would say the problem is with your laptop. Does your phone still work ok? Do you have anything else you can test with, another laptop etc?

Is your lap top plugged in to an AC Outlet, because if its on battery it could be lessening the radio signal.

Ive have connected with 2 different phones as well as the netbook that Im having problems with. I can connect when Im right next to the wireless router. I step into the hallway and the "no network access" comes up. I bought another wireless router today. a netgear n600. Im getting 5 bars in every corner of my house. I can connect to the router from everywhere but cant get any data through...

I tried this today as well. same problem, when the battery is completely disconnected.


Whats the point of wireless if you can get out of the freaking room! lol. I called the cable company tonight as well.
he walked me through everything made sure all the settings were correct on my netbook. stumped him as well.

any ideas... even crazy ones! its worth a shot at this point.

Then I would say the material your house is made of is causing the degrading of the signal. What was used to construct your house?
