Changed Wifi modem and cannot start wifi Printer

Q: Changed Wifi modem and cannot start wifi Printer

Hi there,

My Canon MG 6120 printer used to work with all the computers in the house wirelessly. On upgrading the wifi modem, it is no longer recognised.

How do I get it to be recognised again?

Many thanks, Tony (using Win 10 64 bit on Gateway NV79 c0mputer)

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

Hi,

I recently bought dlink D2750U WIFI ADSL modem/router, for my ADSL internet connection.

But I have now changed my ISP, who provide internet via cable(not telephone line). The ISP guy provides a cable modem(old modem) along with it.

I have connected my PC this way:
Cable modem -> Router -> PC through RJ45. I am able to access internet from my PC, but I am not able to get wifi working on the router. And I am logging onto internet through a dial up connection.
Questions:
1) Please help in configuring the router to get wifi working.
2) Also, my default gateway seems to be either 0.0.0.0 or blank. So, I am not able to login to the modem unless I remove the modem connection. Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong here.

Here are a few more details:

A:Using dlink D2750U Wifi Modem/Router As a Wifi Router

Hey Narain. The D-Link unit you have appears to be a combo unit (modem and wireless router) since it connects straight to the RJ-11 phone line. This unit won't work with an ISP that provides service by way of coax cable. The D-Link will work if you want to use DSL, but you need a cable service compatible modem or combo modem/router if you use cable service.

recently i was having major computer issues on my desktop, i did a full restore to factory settings and after doing a few windows updates i found that my network adaptor was not finding any signals. it does not show up in the change adaptor settings page or in the device manager page. when i troubleshoot my internet connection it says an ethernet cable is not properly plugged in. I have a desktop computer but it definately has a wireless network card. i used to get windows updates for it and it just stopped working one day. when i look in the BIOS the only option related to booting a network card is B03 D00 Yukon PXE. no matter when i boot it i still dont get wireless signals. when i go into the boot menu and try to boot this device it says " PXE E61: media test failure please check cable" i have opened the tower and the card is securely in its slot. i thought i would workaround by getting a usb wifi card.

Hello Guys,

Pls, Help me out with this Problem

A:Connect a Wireless Modem to ADSL modem for Wifi

The "nokia siemens SL2_141" is a modem/wireless router combo; I assume that "A Wireless Modem of MTS" is also a modem/wireless router combo.

If my assumption is correct you can use the Nokia as an ethernet switch and wireless access point ...

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) 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 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If ther... Read more

Hello,
I have a BSNL wireless modem having inbuilt router.The modem has some DSL problem and cannot use the ethernet port to connect to my desktop.So I bought a new Baton DSL modem without wifi facility.

I now need the WIFI connectivity to connect with my phone for browsing net.

For that I connected the Ethernet port of new DSL modem with the old BSNL wifi modem and applied the following configuration.

I changed the IP address of router from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2

But I get only WIFI connection to connect to phone and not correctly getting the connection on desktop through the ethernet.Sometimes i get the connection and sometimes the connection lost.

A:How to configure wifi modem having router with DSL modem ?

Hi there,

On the second router, DHCP needs to be disabled and assign a fixed IP within the router's IP scope (with Wi-Fi capability) i.e. 192.168.1.3 (make sure that 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.3 will be in the IP exclusion list).

Greetings to this great forum!
I need your advice about something important:

I turned off my wirless connection protection for a bit, but I had accidentally forgotten to change it back to "protected" mode (using WPA).
About 2 weeks after, one day I went to my pc to surf, when I noticed that my connection was too slow.
Suddenly my explorer closed without message at all. I then opened it again and it closed (without message) again, for second time.
Opening it again for third time, it didnt closed but I had to wait for ages for a simple web page to be opened.
Then, I noticed that my "WLAN" light of my router showed that there was wirless activity going on (and my laptop was off).
I then remembered that I had left wifi without password and I immediately set a (strong) password.
After that, the "WLAN" light of the router stopped showing wirless activity and I was surfing smoothly.

So I suppose that someone was surfing using my router (wirless) and my connection was slowing down because of him.

My questions are:
1) Was it possible for him to connect to my pc and watch my activity?
2) If 1 has happened and I had my msn open (or other applications) is it possible for my msn to be infected or something?
3) Is it possible, if 1 happened, to keep doing it even after I put on a password?
4) That my (internet) explorer closed 2 times without a reason and message, has something to do with this?
5) Is it possible for my pc to be infected at the moment?

Morning!

I was away for 5 days so switched off my router, modem etc at the mains.

When I returned my Vista laptop could not detect my Wi-Fi signal (was working before), but my iPod and XP netbook could.

I did a router hard reset and that seemed to solve the problem initially, but now when I change the SSID to anything but the default 'Belkin54g', the Vista system will not detect it. Okay, so it's not the biggest problem in the world as can just leave default SSID but does seem a little odd....

I removed all the saved connections settings, but that made no difference.

Sounds as though Vista has that Belkin name stuck in its mind somehow. If you press the Windows key and R together, you could type regedit in the Open box then run a search in the Edit>Find menu for Belkin54g and delete any entries but first, select Export from the File menu and note the name and location of the Registry backup file you're about to create.

I have the modem in my garage with a wifi router and a router for various rooms in my house. My home computer is in an office and previously I had a wired connection that worked great.

I changed wifi router to a new Netgear and the internet connection from the modem is working, the wifi is working, but my home computers ethernet connection will no longer connect...

Any thoughts on what to try other than powering off and on model / routers / computer which I have tried?

A:Changed wifi router, now ethernet doesnt connect - Win 8.1

You can only have one router on your network. For extending coverage, you use Access Points

As for the Ethernet problem, go back and double check your connections to the router.

If you cascaded routers in what are called "Edge Routers". Changing your first router, without any changes on the others can be why you only have a connection to one router and not out to the Internet.

It is really easier to show someone what they did wrong, then explain on a forum.

Dear Sir

I have two wifi connection (for two different ISP) in my office.  One is on 192.168.2.1 and second is 192.168.1.1
All wired PC's are connected with 192.168.2.1 and all wireless devices like laptops mobiles etc are connected with 192.168.1.1.
Last week my wifi 192.168.1.1 as down, so I connected all my devices to 192.168.2.1
Now the my 192.168.1.1 modem wifi is working fine.  I am again trying to change all wifi devices to connect 192.168.1.1, but after some time / after resetting these devices .  It changes back
to 192.168.2.1 series like(192.168.2.3 or 192.168.2.4 likewise) .  I tried everything like ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew then ipconfig /flushdns ipconfig /registerdns, cleared arp cache restart dns services but all in vein.
Although they are connected with 192.168.1.1, but still if we execute the command ipconfig /all it again shows 192.168.2.3 or 192.168.2.4 and so on.  I don't want to give any static LAN IP.
Please help how can I change this lan IP back to 192.168.1.1 series. and change IP of all wifi devices according to their wifi modem connectivity 
Like if we connect any device with 192.168.1.1 modem its LAN IP should also change to that series

please let me know as soon as possible.
 

A:please help to configure modem and Wifi

I don't know about the "AII" part, but the ZTE ZXDSL 831 is an ADSL modem/router. It may be acting as both, or it may be "bridged" to act as a modem only.

I also don't really know what you mean by "dail up." Since you apparently have (A)DSL service I assume you probably mean PPPoE and your account/password. If so, then ...

If the modem/router is acting as a modem only you would specify that configuration type in the D-Link's WAN section.

If the modem/router is acting as both then you have a choice of ways to use the D-Link. To simply daisy-chain it the WAN is configured for (the default) dynamic connection and you need to make sure that it is not using the same LAN subnet as the modem/router (I think that the defaults are different).

Hi. In over my head (not hard to do in this area ) I have Centurylink service and currently are renting their modem/wifi box. I want to replace it with my own modem and my Linksys EA4500 N900router. What do I need to buy to replace the modem so that it is compatible with Centurylink? and do I need to know the IP address currently associated with it to set up the new modem?
Thanks!
 

A:Replace Centurylink Modem/Wifi

You need to check either them to see if they allow that and what all you need to configure and let them know, they may not allow modems that aren't approved from them work or may charge you for modem rental anyways as it may be part of their service. You may also loose the ability for them them to provide you troubleshooting if they are unfamiliar with the units you choose. It appears they are a DSL provider and not Cable is that correct? For DSL you'd have to program the router with your DSL username and password to connect, so you'll need to know that. You shouldn't need to know any IP address for the modem as that's assigned by them but you will need to be able to access your router to configure it, so either it's IP address or use the CD Wizard to configure it.

Hi I have a program called Connectify Dispatch that enable multiple internet connections load balancing, which speed up downloads mostly and sometimes web browsing, my problem that is whenever I use an USB modem Ethernet and WiFi internet stops, this happened since windows 8 but windows 7 works just fine.
This drives me nuts since my internet access is mostly via 3G USB modems but the fastest connection is through a router.

Hello, I have been using a nic and ics to share my usb modem internet with my xbox via ethernet cable.

I have recently installed a wifi dongle to use as an access point to share the same usb internet with a smartphone.

But now my first connection has limited or no connectivity... Can I share the same internet with them both?

If not how do I switch ics between them as I can't get my original local area connection back to using the ics?

Im using xp sp3

My guess is "no" but that's only a guess. Let's take a quick look at ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I'm a bit of a rookie when it comes to Networking but here goes.

I've got a D-Link DSL-604+ 22Mbps Wireless router with built-in ADSL modem and a D-Link DI-624 108Mbps Wireless Broadband router.

Obviously the DI-624 that I recently purchased doesn't feature an in-built modem so instead of blowing $50 on a D-Link ADSL modem with Ethernet connectivity I was hoping to use the ADSL modem feature in my old Wireless router (604+) as my modem for the DI-624.

I called D-Link support but unfortunately after an hour of following live instructions from their support staff, I ended up nowhere.

They instructed me to disable DHCP and NAT features on the 604+ and plug an ethernet cable into it's LAN PORT 1 and plug the other end into the WAN PORT on the 624.

I plugged an ethernet cable into the DI-624 LAN PORT 1 and into my computer's Ethernet port in order to configure the DI-624.

After configuring the DI-624 via its web configuration web page, I could get the 108Mbps network up and running but without the access to DSL.

If anyone any of the above mentioned products and can provide a tip or a link to a guide or something, that would be great.

Thanks

I currently have two cables. One cable is a yellow ethernet cable that is plugged into my motorola cable modem in the Ethernet slot. The opposite end is plugged into the Slot 1 slot in my Linksys wireless router. My second cable is a grey ethernet cable. One end is plugged into the back of my computer and the opposite is plugged into Slot 2 slot in my Linksys wireless router. All of the lights are on both my modem and my router as if everything is working okay. The internet works as well.
However, when I try to access my Linksys wireless settings by typing in http://192.168.1.1/ in my address bar, it says the connection has timed out. It says this each time.
Now, when I move my yellow ethernet cable, that is plugged into Slot 1, into the Internet slot in my Linksys router, and I slide my grey ethernet cable to Slot one, I restart my router and I am now about to access http://192.168.1.1/. However, though I can access these settings, I cannot browse the internet. When I go to google or any other website, it says page cannot be displayed. Therefore, I cannot easily toggle between the Linksys settings and my internet, without moving around wires and restarting my router.
I'm doing this because I'm trying to configure my router with WiFi so I can use my Nintendo DS. Can anybody tell me why I'm having such difficulty with being able to view the Linksys settings and keep my internet connection at the same time? By the way, my Linksys Wireless Router is a WRT54G.

A:Router and Modem WiFi Issue

Well, the modem has to connect to the WAN/Internet connection or you won't have any success here. What's happening now is the computer is connecting directly to the modem and using the router as a simple switch.

Do NOT try to configure the router using the wireless connection! Connect it with a cable for configuration, then you can disconnect it once you get it all configured.
Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I had a Beetel 440BXi router (you wouldn't know of this brand, it's India only), and everything was fine with it. This week, the ISP guys came and changed the modem to the different model, Beetel 450TC1. They say it's an upgrade.

But now I'm having a strange problem. It works fine on my desktop (ethernet), and my laptop through WiFi. But my NOT on my phone. I'm sure it's not my Phone's issue because I've tried connecting to other networks, and it works successful. Still, I've tried putting new/different versions of the ROM on my phone, but nothing works. Everything was fine before the router change.

I have no idea what the problem is. I complained to the ISP but they insist it's the phone's problem.

So I've tried all this:
1. Resetting the router to factory settings
2. Using WEP instead of WPA PSK 2.
3. Reflashing my phone.
4. Using 802.11b instead of 802.11g+b.
I'm using Windows Mobile 6.5.3 on my HTC Touch (Elfin).

Can you guys help? What can be the problem?

It has four Ethernet ports,

I have two computers both hooked up to Modem/router

I been having signal issues. I thought it was the cable company, which I am in the process of quitting their internet service.

I had the modem disconnected from the cable line the other night. I noticed modem received interference around 11:30 p.m.

What type of devices can interfere with a combo modem/router and cause it not to work at all?
Medical? Alarm?

I've been having a problem with my laptop that's got me about ready to scream. The laptop is a Gateway running Vista Home Premium and has built-in wifi. I use the wireless to connect to my network at home and other places, but I also occasionally tether the machine to my Blackberry in places where I don't have wireless access. The problem is that once I've used the Blackberry modem connection, I have a tough time getting the system to use the wireless connection again for internet access. Every time I try to open a browser, I get the Blackberry dialup dialog, and if I cancel that, then it goes into offline mode and won't connect at all. I've set the properties in the dialup connection to only dial if a network connection is not available, but that seems to do no good. I can eventually get IE or Firefox to connect by fiddling with the LAN setup or running the connection setup wizard again, but with other applications (Windows Live Installer in particular), I simply cannot connect to the internet via my wireless as long as that dialup connection is present. I finally had to resort to completely deleting the Blackberry dialup connection to get WL installer to work. Any ideas how I can get my two connections to live in harmony? All I want it do is have the thing use the wireless first if it's available...
 

A:Browser won't use wifi after installing cell modem

I have come across similar problems when using a BT connection with my PPC6700. I find the best way to avoid the problem is to not have the system attempt to dial up. In your case, if it is attempting to access the wifi (but not yet connected) and you have programs attempting connections (since some background programs might trigger this), just having programs sit there might help? You could give it a shot:

START -> CONTROL PANEL -> INTERNET OPTIONS -> CONNECTIONS(tab) -> "Never dial a connection"

That is how mine is setup, and in the "Dial-up and VPN settings" I only have "BluetoothConnection" and this is where I believe your link to the Blackberry most likely is.

Under LAN settings, when I click my button, I have nothing checked, and I have three choices.

Hi,
I have a query! My mate was using my wifi and he was downloading dodgy stuff (I know, I know!).
Whilst he was downloading, I turned my laptop on and it automatically installed updates before it got to the enter password screen which I thought was suspicious. After I logged in, I updated my Norton antivirus and it updated and then installed a patch. I performed a 'quick scan' and it told me nothing had been found.
I also noticed that when I started playing a game on my phone that usually has advertisements through it, the ad's weren't there and when they were expected to show (in this case at half time of a football game) the game froze. This only seems to happen when the phone is connected to the WIFI.
Is it possible that the WIFI router is harbouring a virus, and if so, how can I fix it? Also, has this virus infected my laptop and phone?
Thanks.

More likely the site that serves the advertisements has been blocked.
