Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today.
allow me few mins i am checking the model
its just your i-phone which is not connecting to the Devolo 500 is that correct
No problem. It is the moden provided by UPC Cablecom in Switzerland.
No, also my iPad. I occasionally have got my PC to connect through the Devolo WiFi but only occasionally.
FYI: the problem appears to be connection of the Develo WiFi unit through the modem to the internet and not the connection of the WiFi unit to the iPhone or PC.
are you able to get connected direclty the wifi router using the iphone
and not to the devolo
As I want to mimimize the quantity and duration of WiFi at home, I have disabled the wireless output from the Thomson modem. Instead I have connected a Devolo 500 unit by wire to the modem and connect this (through the electrical circuit) to room modems and by wire via another Devolo unit.
I have no problem connecting the iPhone to our other existing wireless modems.
unplug the devolo and enable wlan on the router and check if the iphone connects fine and you are able to browse the internet and let me know
do not disable the wlan from the router till we are done fixing the devolo
I can access the internet with my iPhone using a separate ZyXEL wireless unit which I have connected to the Thompson router via the Devolo 500 wall plug units. Does this not show that the problem lies with the communication of the Devolo WiFi unit with the Thompson unit? Please can you clarify why I need to re-enable the Thomson WLAN?
lets identify and eliminate the problem on the wireless router side first dont use the devolo now
turn on wlan on the wifi router and save changes and exit
let the router boot it takes 2 to 3 mins and then try to connect to the internet via wifi computer
once confirmed you are able to connect fine then try to connect the iphone and let me know
Michelle, I have decided to try and solve this issue by re-configuring my home wireless system which probably means I will take the Devolo WiFi unit back to the shop! Thank you for your willingness to help. I will end this help line chat now.
