A wireless router is basically a routing device that manages the forwarding and accepting of data packets.

Configure the router

There might arise various issues due to improper configuration of router. For configuring you need to connect the router to the network. After that power down the cable or DSL modem.

Here, you might customize your network as well as your router settings.

Check compatibility

Router and client need to be 802.11 standard compatible otherwise it would create problems with the router. Also, try to turn off the devices that might create interference to the router. Also, avoid obstructing objects like wall, floor etc from the router.

Position the router
