Change the fixed antenna on a router

I'd like to change the 2db antenna that is fixed on my Netgear WGR613V with a bigger one to improve wifi range. 1) I'd like to know if if's possible and what connector I should choose to solder. I understand there are SMA, TNC, etc...? I made the mistake of buying a NEWLink 7dBi Omni Directional Reverse SMA Antenna and I don't know if I'll be able to use it. thks in advance Cheers. G

What is wrong with BFBC2 on my PS3?

I have connected my PS3 to my internet, however, it only works about half the time.  When it doesn't work I either get the error code 80710B23, or when i press join game it says that it cannot connect to EA online.  I have spent many frustrating hours trying to find a solution for the error code, and i have tried everything, resetting, changing th MTU, etc. but nothing seems to work.  However, when i connect through LAN to my modem it works all the time, so there must be something wrong when i connect wirelessly.  I connect my PS3 to a netgear WGX102 range extender, which is then connected to a netgear XE102 through my powerline, and through a lan cable that is connected to my netgear DG834PN Modem/Router.  My ISP is telkom, and i have a 512 kbps ADSL connection.  My PS3 is a Canadian 60gb fatty. Hope thats enough info.

How can I use a wireless router as a wireless network switch? Answered

Hi, So basically we have a Netgear DGN1000 router as our main router and wireless access point although from where my PC is I can't get a very strong signal to the router or the connected airport. I recently picked up a TP-Link TL-WR1043ND router to connect wirelessly to the Netgear router so I will be able to connect LAN cables to a switch, then to the TP-Link. There is a bridging system on the TP-Link router configuration although I don't think it's the type of bridging I'm looking for. Any help will be appreciated, cheers,  -Will

Wireless in house works fine on laptops but not on phones?

Up until maybe a month everything was fine, then all of a sudden when people connect their phones (iphones/samsungs) to the network in the house it just doesn't work. The connection for laptops/ps3/xbox are fine but it just won't work on phones.  No settings have been changed.  We're using a Netgear N600 wireless dual band router.  Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

My Xbox 360 is downstairs next to the tv, I have a new wireless netgear router that I was wondering if I could just hook that up to my xbox downstairs and keep the pc wired upstairs, as I know that most my friends have their 360's plugged straight into the wireless router. Can I have both wired upstairs and wireless plugged in the back of XBOX? If so how

Need a WiFi Adapter Answered

Does anybody know of a WiFi Adapter that can work on a Windows XP PC and work with a Dual band WiFi router? (my router is NetGear, if that's important) and that is not $30 or more? I don't care if its used, as long as it works and wont die any time soon (obviously) I've been looking on amazon, I've found a few decent ones and cheap but to be honest... i don't know which to get, which is why I'm asking here to be 100% sure or.. close enough to 100%

How can I prepare my new room the way I want it to be?

Well, seeing I am a growing young man, I have come to hate my brother. I dislike everything about him and I want to move out of our room. I have already moved my Xbox 360, bought a new $900 dollar computer, a 32" 1080p HD LED/LCD TV, a glass table/desk, and have moved alot of this "equipment" downstairs in my garage. Note: I still sleep in our room upstairs. Now I have basically been spending a majority of my time in my garage and have noticed a couple of flaws of this "moving in." I do homework in my garage, I edit videos in my garage, play Xbox 360, go on the computer, anything that basically doesn't involve sleeping, These flaws I have noticed in my garage will be listed now: Barely any Air Conditioning (I have a fan, but it sometimes throws dust everywhere) A lot of dust falls everywhere, on my glass table, Xbox 360, TV, Lamp, everywhere. I have mediocre internet speed, about 4 Mbps average download speed,  and 3.50 Mbps average upload speed, when I should be getting around 15 Mbps with Comcast (Maybe this has to do with my wireless connections or my Wifi strength, located upstairs with my brother) There is wall mold on some places of the walls (which can actually be a health issue) There are little bugs that are on the walls, along with spiders (Which kind of creep me out) And last is that I have a whole bunch of stuff in here that my mom wants to giveaway to poor, needing children in South America, but she never get to doing it. It is really cramped in my garage with all this stuff. Please keep in mind that I want to have my bed in here, and have my separate room in here... So what I need help with, or what I need assistance with, is having a good way to approach this problem in a neat, healthy, way. I want to live comfortably in my room, without the constant precipitation of dust, the idea that a spider will crawl into my mouth, that my walls are beautifully painted, and I have space to move around. Also when I go to use the internet that I have reasonably fast Internet Speed, and when I play Xbox 360, I don't lag, like I usually do. My Internet is setup like this, just if you were wondering: Comcast Surfboard Modem - Connected to the Internet Wireless Comcast Netgear Router - Connected to my Modem My brothers Xbox 360 - Wired directly to the router My Xbox 360 & Computer - Get Internet access through Wifi from the Router Wireless Comcast Netgear Router - Gives Wifi to everyone in my house also that sometimes may be using it I wan't to see how I can get faster Internet speed, probably connecting two wireless routers, which I think is impossible, or seeing if I can run a cable down from my Wireless Router straight to my Xbox or something. I wan't to have a list of procedures on how I can go about to do this and fix this room up to my liking. Well for those of you that actually finished reading this, thank you and any help would be greatly appreciated. And also I will attach a picture of my garage so that you can have a better picture of what I am dealing with. Thanks again Alex...

How can I convert .bin to .img for router (OpenWRT) reflash?

I am trying to get my head around installing OpenWRT on my Netgear dg834gt. I have found the hardware page, identified the correct image and downloaded it. As per instructions I attempted to pass the .bin file to the web interface, however the web interface only accepts .img files. Is there any method of converting between these presumably different formats? I could get a jtag/serial connection to the target but I'm waiting on a cable, so the Web interface would be preferable. Any help is appreciated, Thanks in advance, Drew p.s. I'm a Linux user. Also, I have no idea if this is a daft question or not.

Trying to make music controlled leds with arduino?

Ok So I decided to take a netgear router apart, and it had a circle of 8 smd led's And I figured out the pinout to hook them up to my arduino (I know which wire goes to each led basicly) Theres one power input, and the rest are grounds, And I decided I wanted to make it pulse to music.  I want it to do two modes, (Maybe by the push of a button? Theres a button on the led board but idk how to use it. I know the 9 pins to make the leds work, but theres 3 left that I dont know what they do. I want to make one mode that will make all 8 pulse at the same time, And one that will make a pulse from led1 to led8. I have a button, My ipod, my arduino, the Led circle, and a speaker plugin. The speaker plug in plugs into my ipod, and it has a copper wire, a white wire and a red wire.  Im not sure how to hook it all together and write a code for it. So Im looking for some assistance.... Thanks! :D (I also added a picture of the led board, and of the speaker wire)
