  1. Hi,
    I have a broadband motorola internet connection. Basically there is a radio receiver on my roof which receives a signal from a tower and a wire that comes in the house. i have a wireless router Dlink WBR-1310 D1. I haven't figured the encryption yet. mostly because i'm not sure i will figure it out right.
    The computer has an ethernet wire to the router (blue) and my laptop is set to wireless useage.

    My husband was using his cordless rumblepad 2 for the first time since getting this router and since it was pluigged in the internet conncetion was not there. I tried to do the power cycle thing and nothing worked.

    I disconnected the router and the rumblepad, put the internet connection to the computer and restarted. i'm on line. next, i reconnected the router and re cycled the power, i'm on line.
    I've googled for issues between the two no help...so here i am again. Any help would be apreciated because my husband like to game.

    I have a cordless mouse and keyboard, logitech, no problems.
    i did note that the three wireless receivers were relatively close. 12" radius.

    Thanks in advance for the help

    PS the cordless phone is 2.4 GHz


    Windows xp pro sp 2
    P4 3.00 GHz
    299GHz, 2.00 GB of ram
    mb Asus P5S800-vm
    AGP BFG 6600 GTOC 128 MB of ram
    Logitech cordless keyboard model number Y-RJZ0
    Logitech cordless mouse man optical
    Logitech cordless rumblepad 2
    router Dlink WBR-1310 d1

    i hope this is all the information that is needed

    You have to remember, that everything uses a channel.

    Wireless Phone
    Wireless Logitech keyboad and Mouse
    Wireless Router
    Wireless R-Pad

    Check the R-pad in the manual to see if it can be changed like a phone that has a channel button does. Logitech devices do it automatic as does the router. But check to see if you could use channel 1 instead of the default 11 for the router. That might solve your problem if the R-pad can't change the wireless channel it uses. I have everything you have but don't have r-pad though. I do have the MX710 Laser K/M from Logitech and wireless network bluetooth for laptop.

    I decided not to get 2.4GHz DSS wireless phone but go for the 5.8GHz DSS wirless phone. So far that helps too..
