I was trying to make my sister-in-law's wireless connection secure (they've had wireless set up for awhile unsecured), and all seemed to go well until magically, it didn't. It allowed me to set up a password -WPA2/Personal, it was fine, other devices (ipod Touch and another laptop) connected to the network by putting in the right key. HOWEVER, the original laptop, now wants no part of connecting to this network. It finds the network, but doesn't even let me get to a stage at which I need to enter the WPA key. It automatically says it can't connect, and is very useless when I hit "Diagnose the problem". I am only marginally less clueless than the people that asked for my help, so please don't get too technical on me. I have spent hours trying to figure out what the problem is, and though I know it's obviously something with the computer's setting, I don't know what that is.

When I go to the Network and Sharing Center, rather than being a three-way "map", it's two - the computer, then the internet. There is nothing (ie, router) in between. I have no idea how to get that step back in there.

I have connected the router to the laptop directly, and an internet connection does come up, so it isn't an ISP issue. The wireless does work with the devices mentioned above, as well as my own laptop, just not the central laptop.

I understand it may be a TCP/IP issue (or something like that), but I don't kn... Read more

I have a lenovo u160 running windows 7, a couple of days ago it seemed my computer was infected with something, giving a series of security warnings I had not seen before (not av security suite). It slowed the computer down for a few minutes.

After closing these messages, there seemed to be no problem, but then my computer was no longer connect to the internet. It connects to our router/wireless network, but not to the internet.

I tried resetting and unplugging the router and the modem, but still no luck. We have two other computers on the same network that are connecting to both the network and the internet.

I tried running rkill and malwarebytes twice and no malicious items were detected.

I restored the computer to an earlier point (2-3 days earlier)

On the toolbar in the bottom right of the taskbar, it shows a 5 white signal bars, with a "!" inside a yellow triangle.
If I click on the network button it states it is "connected" to the network. It describes the connection as "excellent" (4-5/5 bars).

Above the display of the available networks, it states

"currently connected to:
Unidentified network
No Internet access"

I am not computer savvy and have not run into this problem before. Thanks for your time and help.

This is the idea, I have DVR for CCTV and I need to configure it for port forwarding, and since it has only LAN connection it is not possible to connect in pocket wifi, so i used to have a wireless router since it has a LAN connection. But I do not know how to do this connection as the wireless router to be a bridge in my pocket wifi to DVR, Anyone know how to do this? Thanks!

A:How to connect pocket wifi to wireless router, to connect the dvr for cctv?

I'm not at all sure I understand. Are you trying to use the wireless router as a Wireless Bridge (to connect to the pocket wifi via wireless and the DVR via ethernet)? If so, does the router have wireless bridge (or AP Client) mode?

Hey all,

I'm trying to connect my wireless router to my wired router.

Ideally I want the following: internet--> A --> 3 PCs + B -->itouch+ps3 +laptops

A: Gnet External ADSL modem with 4-port switch bb0055 (note: this is a modem/wired router)
B: Trendnet Wireless router tew-639gr

All 3 PCs have internet, so i'm sure my wired router is working properly. Using an ethernet cable, I've connected a Lan port in my Wireless router to a Lan port in my Wired router. My itouch, ps3, and laptops can connect to my wireless but I'm not getting any internet. I've also been able to access my wireless settings and change a couple of things.

From what I've read online, In B, I need to turn off the LAN DHCP and change my LAN IP Address. I've tried a couple of things but it still isn't working. Also what should I set my WAN settings to in my wireless router?

First I would like to say hello to everyone in the community as this is my first post. I would like to set up Linksys wireless router(wrt160n) with a Dlink wired router(DLR-604),The wireless would be the host router and I would like to isolate the wired router from that network,to protect my main computer's(2computer's plus network printer) from from my children s and friend's machines I connect to the wireless or wired ports on the Linksys.Thanks in advance, any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated .Cheers

A:Solved: Connect wireless router and wired router

This should be pretty easy. Just connect the D-Link router's WAN port to one of the Linksys router's LAN ports. The computers connected to the D-Link router will be isolated from the Linksys connected computers by the D-Link router's NAT firewall.

My small home network is connected to a Z100G Zone Alarm router via wires. This router has WiFi but I do not use it as it is not wireless N capable. I would like to have wireless N to stream movies to a wireless N BluRay player. I would like to keep the Z100G because of the firewall function.

Can I just connect a new wireless N router to the Z100G? If so, would it then be best to connect all the network computers to the new router either via wired or wireless?

I have been racking my brain for ages over this to no avail.

I am a professional designer with a digital press (canon imagePress C1)
What i want to do is connect the printer to a router and then some how connect that router to the main router where the internet comes in Wirelessly.

I cant plug a computer into the printer. The computers are upstairs and the printer is downstairs. There is also no way of connecting the printer to the main router(A)

My general basic idea is connect the printer to a router(B) via small ethernet cable.

Then me being optimistic Router(B) wirelessly sees router(A) so then I can print to it wirelessly from upstairs.

I hope this makes sense?!?!?!?

Hi there, I'm having a bit of an issue with one of my computers. It's fairly new, running on Windows Vista.

I am able to connect to a wireless router (Belkin), but I am not able to connect to the internet on this one particular computer. Another desktop computer on the network is able to access the internet. I just get the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the page" on the laptop whenever I attempt to open IE.
I've read through quite a few similar problems on other sites, but have yielded no solution. Any suggestions?

Bit of an odd problem here, hoping someone could offer solutions until I have access to the router settings.
So, I just moved into the 3rd floor of a house here in Boston. I have a desktop, and so I have always used ethernet cables. Unfortunately, the router is on the second floor of the home here, and it's impossible for me to run a cable, so I went out and purchased a wireless adapter (netgear n300). The adapter is great, not a problem. The problem is, when scanning for networks, I can see his router, which is using WEP. I connect, but it refuses to acquire an ip. I can connect to other networks fine, just not the one I need. The man who lives downstairs won't be home for a few hours, so I won't have access to the router until then. I have tried to get to the router from my desktop, but don't seem to be working, so I have no idea what the default ip could be. Are there any other possible explanations for why this could be happening? Also, what should I do in the router settings when I get access later on tonight?

Any help is severely appreciated!

Hey guys, need some urgent help here.

I have a program on my computer called Intel(R) My WiFi Technology, which has something to do with my network adapter (Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN). I recently had an annoying notice popping up from this program saying 'The Wireless Network Adaptoor could not be found'. So I decided that I should find a solution on Intel's forums. I came across a thread that discussed my problem, and one of the Intel workers mentioned that Uninstalling and Reinstalling the program would be the best solution. So I followed the steps and came across a huge problem . Turns out that once I removed this program, my computer wouldn't connect to my wireless network in my house. I went onto my other devices throughout the home and they all seemed to be working fine, and that my router was still working fine aswell. I went onto my other computer and downloaded the program onto my USB, and installed it back onto my original computer. There still wasn't any difference, and my computer still currently can't connect to my wireless access point. I've rolled back drivers, updated them, and I've refreshed wireless network adapters in my Network and Sharing Center in Control Point. I'm starting to run out of ideas, and I really need some help. My computer can still detect networks though, but I've discovered it can connect to my Mobile Phone's Access Point, meaning I can connect to 3G through my phone. I'm sus... Read more

Hi everyone: Iím having an extremely frustrating problem connecting to my Netgear DG384G v3 wireless router in my flat.

In short:

Ever since I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro, internet browsers do not detect a connection to the internet despite a wireless connection being detected in the network connections (and the icon in the system tray) when my wireless adapter is plugged into my PC. Connection problems only occurred after the reformat, another PC in my flat connects wirelessly to our router with no problems (before, during & after the time I reformatted; Iím posting this using his PC) and the router config settings have definitely not been changed in any way so its not a router problem. It appears that the wireless adapter is able to detect a signal from the router but the router is not sending information to the adapter (I canít even connect to the router setup IP address

More detailed:

1) I wiped the PCís harddrive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro Ė I thought the recovery disk would have drivers with it (like others Iíd used) but it didnít so I had to manually find nVidia chipset & 3com Ethernet controller drivers and SP1 (for USB 2.0 functionality), download them on another PC and transfer and install them on mine. I got SP2, this didnít change anything, I changed back to SP1, still no change to connectivity.

Hi all,
I just connected with WiMax, problem is I have the wimax wireless router in the house(all good).

But my office is in the garage! I was hoping to run an ethernet cable from WiMax Zylex router to my Belkin Wireless Router.

Is this the way to go about, sharing my internet connection? Also can anyone
give me any pointers on how to go about doing this.


A:Connect WiMax wireless (Zylex) with my Belkin N wireless router

I am no expert but will try to help. If I have understood you correctly, you only require the one router.
If the router in the house is a wireless router and your computer in your office is equipped for Wi-fi you could connect wirelessly. You will need the access code for the router when you try to connect. I think it will be a WEP or a WPA PSK code.
Otherwise run a ethernet cable from your house router to your office and connect it direct to your office computer (not too a second router) This is probably the safest method anyway if you do not need wireless.
You will then need to set up a network by going to "Control Panel" and clicking on "Network Setup Wizard" and following the instructions.
Hope that is of some help to you.

Any advice is greatly appreaciated...Cheers

A:Can i connect a Wireless Router to a wired router

Very simple:

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

Hey All,

I have a Wireless Modem that works perfectly (i can use the wireless fine) but i need to connect it to a Wireless Router. But it won't work.

I also have a non-wireless Modem that when connected to the wireless router everything works great. But i have to return the non-wireless modem.

I think it might have to do w/some gateway settings on my wireless modem. Any help is appreciated.



A:Can't connect Wireless Modem to Wireless Router

"won't work" means what? Both devices refuse to power on?

What modems are these anyway? Dialup, cable, DSL, some special wireless connection?

Gateway settings on the wireless modem? If that modem cares about gateways and such, then it is a router device and you should connect it to one of the LAN ports of your wireless router. Disable the router's DHCP server and make sure you don't have any IP address conflicts.

I need to connect a new SMC 7004 wireless 3-port router to my existing Linksys BEFSR41 4-port router. This is because there is one long network cable currently run to one end of the house and this is where I need to locate the wireless unit for optimal range (due to both distance/range and wall composition issues). The SMC was way cheaper than an access point. This is all for cable modem internet distribution - no file or print sharing at all.

At first, I connected the Linksys' Uplink port to a LAN port on the SMC wireless. The other SMC wired RJ-45 LAN ports then DID provide internet access (these connections appeared to use Linksys assigned IP addresses but the wireless NIC did NOT provide internet access. Wireless connection was successful between the wireless NIC and the SMC but the NIC's default gateway was set for the SMC ( and its IP was set to the SMC group ( as well. So no wireless internet like this.

On my second try I then got it to work by connecting the long network cable between the Linksys' LAN port #1 and the WAN port on the SMC wireless. This appears to work but I see that many people say this will be a problem and is not recommended.

Can the first way work by disabling DHCP on the SMC? Other manual settings? Router vs. Gateway settings?

What is the problem with the second way?

Also, in this setup does it matter that the SMC's firewall is currently enabled?

Any help or advice would be greatly ... Read more

A:connect router to wireless router

If you are only using it for Internet access, it may work. You won't be able to see any of the internal LAN addresses through the other router, since the private LAN addresses are not routable. I'd disable the SMC's firewall, since it can only cause you problems.

I have recently installed a 11g wireless router/modem at home.
The router is maufactured by 3com, and is connected to a desktop PC running windows 2k by ethernet cable. This all works fine, and I can browse the internet no problems.

My laptop, has win98 SE and has a conceptronic wireless PC Card which is 11b and 11g compatiblle. When I start up the wireless card utility, I can can quite clearly see at 100%strenghth the signal from the router. Yet it wont connect. WEP has been disabled on the router, and the router's SSID is 3com, which is also set on the wireless card. I have tried winipcfg (might have spelt that wrong!) and tried to release and renew the address but I am still stuck with a 169... address on my laptop. When I press renew it tells me DHCP server is unavailable, although on the router settings the DHCP is switched on.

The IT guy here at work has suggested going to network settings on the laptop and manually inputting the routers IP - ( Am at work now so cant test, but does this seem like a plausible solutuion, and if not, does anybody have any suggestions?

Many Thanks

So, my brother's computer lost internet access and he asked me what I could do to fix it, and everything I tried didn't work so I am posting here. I installed spybot, malwarebytes, ccleaner, superantispyware, mcafee, and hijackthis. Ran full scans, and deleted what I saw. I then ran winsockxp to try to repair my internet and it still doesn't work. All of the scans I ran were with the software not yet updated since I had no internet connection to update them with. My wireless adapter says I am connected to the router, but I have no interne access. I am sure that I have the right WEP code and that there is something else restricting me. I also tried connecting with a usb wirless adapter to make sure the problem wasn't the adapter and it had the same problem. Right now I am running all of the scans again since I am stuck.

A:Can't connect through wireless router

I ran all of the scans again and still nothing. Anybody have any idea how to fix this?

Read other 2 answers

I purchased this router almost a year ago and it was working fine for me up until the time I moved back back in June where I boxed it up and wasn't using it because the place I was renting had internet and I simply had the password to log onto their network. Time warner came out this morning to setup my internet and had my wireless router all ready to be setup. It took him well over an hour and I still didn't have my internet setup right because it wouldn't pull up any pages. He confirmed the signal was working and that it was probably the settings with my computer.

I was able to get it working but only with their router's cable being plugged directly into my laptop. Under the network strength bar is a small little yellow triangle and when highlighted it reads Network 4 internet access, Bostonredsox(name of my network) no internet access. For a short time I was able to log into my network on my iphone and browse but even that now that has stopped working.

I have tried to flush the dns and tried ipconfig and nothing seems to work. What may be the problem here? I doubt it's my laptop has I have been able to log into the apartment complex free wifi and wifi other places with no problem. I am trying to save a service call to have someone come out and fix what may be wrong. I don't want to be tied to a desk with the cable plugged in directly as I have a wireless router. Any ideas?

A:Can't connect with my wireless router

what equipment do you have now - router and a modem, or was the router a combined router/modem

can you post the make and models of the modem / router

what devices do you have available and how connected

need to know the setup a little more to give any further advice accurately

if you have a separate modem can you connect by cable and see if that works ok

it maybe the modem supplied is a router and that would require a different setup to connect your router ?

also do a powercycle when you make any changes

How to power cycle

“power cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes,
Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

Hey guys,
i've recently had a new computer and tried connecting it to my router wirelessly but it wont do it, it keeps coming up with a a vague error saying can't connect. It can see the router with solid 3-4 bars of signal, i've checked the security key, tried unistalling the drivers and reinstalling the drivers but still no joy. The laptop connects to the network with no problems whatsoever.

I'm using a netgear dg934 provided by Sky broadband. I'm also using a Belking f5d7050 v3 usb adaptor to connect to the router. The computer in question is running win7 home premium 64 bit.

Recently i've found that the computer will connect to router if the security is disabled but nt when it is.

I've pasted the detailed error report below:

O.K. already searched the forums and didn't find what I needed. This is the deal I own a laptop and do not have a built in Ethernet Card. I did have an Ethernet Card and had connected before, when I set up my computer through the wireless router never had a problem. Well anyway, I had to re-install my O.S. and have brought everything back up. I can connect through my USB but when I contacted both the company I bought the router through and my Internet Provider I got no help, I was told the only way that I can connect is by using an Ethernet connection first. I am trying not to spend any unnessary money on a new Ethernet Card to connect once and then reinstall my wireless. Is there any way to connect without an Ethernet Card.

I have a 2Wire 2700HG-D Router setup wirelessly that I have been using with no problems for the last 3 months. All of the sudden tonight, my computer cannot connect to the router wirelessly. I reset the modem, watched the power light, the dsl light, and the internet light come on as usual, but the wireless light came on and then went back off immediately. It keeps coming back on like its going to broadcast a wireless signal and then goes back out. Any ideas how to correct this or what's causing it?

I bought this gembird nsw-r2 802.1b/g 54m wireless router and (my knowledge isn't great) don't know how to connect it. What should I do to connect it? I mean, basic information... not exactly for this router but in generall. How to connect a wireless router? If anyone has the time for answering annoying questions like this, please reply.


A:How to connect/set up a wireless router?

You need to connect an ethernet patch cable between your computer and one of the LAN ports on the router during configuration. Open a web browser and type the IP address for the router which is into the browsers address bar. This should brung up a web based menu.

You will want to setup wireless security using WPA2 AES, and enter a pass key. Also change the default SSID to something else (not so much for security, but so there aren't multiple routers with the same name). Be sure to save the settings. Most other defaults can be left alone.

You will need to setup the wireless adapter on your computer to access the router with whatever SSID you chose, using WPA2 AES and same passkey you entered in the router setup. Disconnect both ends of the ethernet cable and reconnect it from the modem WAN or ethernet port to the router WAN port..

Im having trouble connecting to a wireless router. I live in an apartment and my next door neighbor said it would be ok to use his wireless connection. It shows up as an in range router but when I try and connect after entering the wpa password he provided me it just acts like it's going to connect but then never does. Doesn't even attempt to aquire an ip. I went to his apartment and attached my computer directly to his netgear router and that worked fine. My computer is a dell running windows xp service pack 3. Any help is much appreciated

A:Can't connect to wireless router

I live in an apartment and my next door neighbor said it would be ok to use his wireless connection.Click to expand...

its not actually OK to connect to his network - he will be breaking the T&Cs of his contract by allowing another premises to use the broadband supplied to him

also its against our rules to assist here

WiFi "Piggybacking" / "Wardriving" - We do not support the act of using someone else's Internet without permission. Also, please note that almost every ISP prohibits sharing your Internet connection with another home, and we will not assist you in breaking their rules.Click to expand...

A friend of mine was using Cox Cable, then moved into a roomate situation where the only thing he was able to use was a wireless router (Linsys). He then moved from there and is now trying to use Qwest DSL but can not connect. He has spoken to tech support and even had a tech come to his house. The tech could connect to the internet using the DSL modem but no matter what settings he has used on his computer it will not connect. I looked at it and even talked to Linksys support about it but no matter what we do, nothing seems to matter, it just won't connect. Can anyone think of anything the wireless install would leave behind that would prevent a connection?

I have a basic setup. One desktop and one laptop. Have had the router hooked up to desktop for about three months or so. Went to get on laptop today and it went to home page and then when I tried to go somewhere else it disconnected. It says now only that there is no wireless connection available. This has been all day. Have hooked up the laptop to the main internet connection(I use a cable dsl connection). Internet worked fine. I finally reinstalled the software on desktop for the router. Still nothing. The laptop simply says there are no wireless connections available. Both computers have windows xp and the router is a netgear wgr614v6

I have
Router: Linksys WRT54GS V7.50.5
Wireless card: used to be "Asus 802.11b/g Network Adapter" but after updating driver thru Device Manager (WinXP) it is now "Marvell Libertas 802.11b/g Wireless"
When I first got the card it was all fine, no problems at all. Couple weeks later it would start loosing connection and then connecting again and again. Now it doesnt connect at all. And if it does is says "Limited or no connectivity". Because of this I had to move my desktop from otherroom to where the router is so I can wire it (works fine). I have to move the PC where it was but when I disconnect the wire I am unable to connect using wireless.

I tried disabling the wired device so maybe the wireless would have an easier time but nothing.

Internet connection I am using is Comcast High Speed. With somewhat dynamic IP. WPA Personal for security.

Please help this has been bugging me for a long time and still cant find the answer to why I cant connect.

Hi, I'm having a problem connecting my Linksys wireless adapter to the wireless system. All was working fine until I had to do a window XP repair. Now I can't get connected. When I try the Linsys connection program will connect then say cannot connect, no internet found. My husband's computer and lap top both work fine. Just can't get mine to work no matter what I try.

The adapter I have is a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter model number WMP54G
The Wireless Modem is also Linksys -G

Also there is some kind of WAN Miniport(IP) that has a yellow triangle and says it's not working properly. I didn't even see it there before so I don't know if it was with a recent windows update or not. I can't update the driver for it since I can't connect to the internet and the only driver available through a search I did, is through MS windows update website.
Is that what might be creating the problem? I think the only way to fix that is to do a complete re-install of windows. Something I want to avoid since it takes so long to reinstall all my games/programs and updated drivers.

Right now the pc works fine other then the wireless connection. My ethernet card doesn't appear to have problems but currently don't have a way to hardwire the internet connection as the other modem is in another part of the house for the older computer which is hard wired. Also the computer doesn't recognise my wireless adapter when trying to establish a co... Read more

I'm running an HP a1210n desktop with Win xp sp2, ie7, with Verizon DSL internet through a Westell Versalink 327W router.

We have three laptops in the house that can all get to the web just fine. On the desktop I reinstalled windows about two months ago after a virus attack, and although i've had intermitten web access, it's spotty. Now I'm unable to connect at all.

When I open IE7, the home page (google.com) hangs, status bar takes about 2 min. to get halfway, then it displays the "IE cannot display webpage" screen.

I followed the instructions on that page for "diagnose connection problems", but it says it can reach the internet ok and access microsoft.com (big help).

After looking at some other posts on TSG, I tried pinging and I get correct responses pinging google, etc. When trying to connect to, I again get "IE cannot display webpage", whereas on my laptops it goes right to the Versalink Gateway page.

Ran an ipconfig on command screen, and got this:

Hi all,

Am unable to connect to my wireless router through its ip. I am able to connect to the internet however, through wireless - but not being able to connect to the router itself, if I understand correctly, means I can't set a password for the router.

I've tried opening up my browser, putting in an ip address (from various sources; 'command prompt'/DOS; the material that came with the router etc.) - but it can't find it.

FYI: Windows XP, SP3; VAIO VGN-AR25 (built in wifi, so I'm not using the USB stick that was provided with the router - have tried this, but didn't work either)

Any other info that I can provide, let me know
