What router do you have? Also, what devices are you trying to connect to the router? Most current routers default to 802.11 b/g/n mixed, which would not cause a problem for you, unless you changed it. Also, some older computers cannot connect to wireless networks that are secured with WPA2 security. If that is the case, change your wireless security to WEP.
My first post! Hope it helped,
Hello everyone. First time on a forum. Well heres my technical dilema:
i purchased a dual band router recommended to me but now feel a bit foolish since ive just discovered that only my ipad can connect to 5ghz out of all my devices. it's ridiculous.
anyway, i researched fastest, budget single-bands and based on pc-mag review found linksys e1200. Then according to cnet it's terrible so i decided on the e1500 or d-link dir-657 according to its good cnet reviews. For some reason i read some amazon reviews and google shopping and newegg reviews and now i want to shoot myself in the head. Users say these are terrible and now i think im back to step 1 with the cnet bad-reviewed e1200, which at least has good user reviews.
Seriously. Ill be grateful to anyone who restabilizes my sanity
