Online info just repeats whats already in manual..Anybody have this same extender? I must be thicker than I thought Thanks

    Range extender problem

    OK Thanks!!!
  3. Hi I recently upgraded my internet router to up to 100 meg to stream tv channels. Now my Linksys range extender isnt even recognized by my computer..if our smartphones are near the extender, our wifi is disconnected and Linksys asks for us to sign in?? saying connection has been lost. I thought maybe it needs to be reconfigured, but I don't get any "Linksys extender setup" window at all to do this. Its a Model RE6500, maybe the hardware is too old?? Anyway, Thanks.....with the extender unplugged, the phones hook right back up after a minute.

    ipad dropping internet

    Morning..My wife's ipad drops our wifi connection at times, then she can't get back on. We go to settings where our family wifi is located, then says our password isn't valid which is bull because it's been the same for years! Then the next day she's back on out of the blue?? Is there a setting or something I can do to stop this from happening?? I believe it's a ipad 3. Thanks!!

    USB ports not seeing devices!

    Hello...my son has a DEll w/XP SP2 and 6 USB ports. He can't get his puter to see his Chocolate phone or his new PDA. Yet when I plugged in a flash drive it saw it right away, in the system tray and in My Computer as a new E drive. His phone works in my computer, which is 4 years older. Why would a USB port see my flash drive, but not the other devices?? He has uninstalled and reinstalled the software twice. Any ideas?? My son would appreciate any help. Thanks!!

    Msconfig Doesn't Open

    Hi again...I tried to open Regedit. It also doesn't open for me! The window is there for a split second and disappears. I did a virus scan(Norton's) and the puter checked out OK! I'm gonna run Spy-bot and Ad-aware again. Thanks

    Msconfig Doesn't Open

    Two problems..while trying to keep my computer in decent running order I tried to bring up MSCONFIG but nothing happened!(in the RUN feature of course). Then I hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete to see how many processes are running, and THAT pops up for a split second and disappears! Any help would be appreciated...Thanks!
