I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

i can setup my d-link 604 wired router with no probs...but after i have done that then i need to do something in the windows control panel under the network connections icon. i have no clue what to do there to complete the final step in networking my 2 machines. some nfo: 2 new machines with ethernet cards. one is xp home and the other is xp pro. all i want to do is make those 2 machines use the same cable connection...i dont want ics or print/file sharing. i have been told to set up the router then power cycle the devices and magically the 2 machines will begin working. but i refuse to fall into that lame trap. i do format approx every 3-4 months so i will need to know how to do this so i can recover from that activity. each machine has a network connection from its previous service - do i delete this - do i create a new one -must i disable/delete/leave alone original connection icon ??? these are the many questions that i have and i have googled this and can not find any nfo as to what to do, on the windows side, after the router is setup. help, i have been trying to figure this out for approx 2 months and my hardware will be obsolete before i get it, so i appeal for help, mahalo and aloha.

Really need some help here, going crazy . We have a Sagemcom FAST 1704 modem/router from windstream, our ISP, and have been trying to get servers going for Minecraft game with no luck. So we thought that we could attach our Belkin router to the modem since we were having port forwarding problems. I have tried numerous times to set up the router with this modem and have even tried the bridge mode, but then I don't get internet access through the Belkin router....have no idea what I am doing wrong . I am running Windows XP....and my brother, who I want on the same network, is running Windows Vista...which I really hate. I had my XP connected, but could not get the Vista connected....then I completely messed it up and just am at my wits end....can someone please walk me through this? Let me know any info you need and how to send it to you .
Thanks a lot,

Here's my problem... I have a wireless router (1st router, Linksys speed booster), which is connected directly to the internet. From one of it's LAN port, a 50 ft ethernet cable is connected to the 2nd router's WAN port (Vonage 2 phone plug router, Linksys). From the 2nd router's LAN port, a network printer is connected. Now here's the problem, because my laptop connects wirelessly to the 1st router for internet access, how do I print and see any devices connected to the 2nd router? I can't seem to connect to the printer in anyway through this setup. There has to be a way. I can not eliminate the 2nd router because it's my vonage device phone. It requires internet. I also can't relocate the printer because it needs the vonage device for fax. Let me simplify the current setup through a series of descriptive connections.

A:How 2 setup a netwrk prnter that cnnects 2 a router which is cnnected 2 anther router

If you put the VoIP router first, you can connect the second router as follows. The problem is that you have the NAT layer of the second router between you and the printer.

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!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

I don't know if this is possible, but this is what I want to do:
Have the dsl modem router and linksys voip connected together.
I want the voip router to assign dhcp and the dsl modem router to
be used to get internet access but not assign dhcp (I think)

This is why I want it:

I have 8 wireless linksys cam's configured through the voip router.
Setting the cam's to the modem router didn't work well because of
AT&T's firewall cannot be disabled, only modified to open ports. It's frustrating as when I opened the ports for the cam's, a consistant "an unknown error has occured". So I opted to just set up the cams on the linksys router as the cams are also linksys as well. Thus, figuring they would communicate better anyway.

This is my problem:

When I connect the dsl modem router to the
WAN port on the linksys router, the dsl modem assigns it
a fixed LAN ip. What I want is the linksys router to pull a WAN ip so I can log into my cam's remotely from my laptop at home.
No matter what I do, disable dhcp on linksys router, set linksys router on the dsl modem router to DMZ, set linksys router to bridge mode.....
nothing seems to work.

All I want to do is configure the linksys router so that when I go to my internet explorer on my laptop and type in "99.xxx.xxx.xx:1024 to connect to the cam's. But when I go to linksys router config. pages to see the status, the internet ip is which is a LAN address assi... Read more

So I have AT&T DSL. I bought a Netgear N300 ADSL2+ Modem/WiFi Router that is compatible with my service.

Previously with this Modem/Router it would constantly drop the wireless connection for the Wii I have that was used to stream Netflix.

So recently I bought a Linksys E2500 Router so I could be able to use the Wii, along with 3 other desktops, 1 laptop, and 3 phones.

My ideal setup would be this:
Set the ADSL2+ Modem/Router to be just a modem (I know how to set the option for this)​Connect the Linksys Router to be what all the devices connect to wirelessly (this would serve as the DHCP server) ​
I have read that one of the Routers has to be set to "BRIDGED" mode, yet I don't know which device has to be Bridged

then connect the modem to the WAN on the router and you should be good to go

Our office currently has a Linksys 10/100 Router with assigned IP Address of that our wired desktops connect through, as well as our printers, data storage server and cable modem. All of the connections have IP Address based upon the 192.168.0.xxx. All of the computers on this router, except for one of the printers and the data storage server, are DHCP assigned IP addresses.

We have a D-Link Wireless router attached through the Linksys Router with an assigned IP Address of that we use for wireless access/hard wire access in the office for anyone that comes in and needs to have access to the internet or our data storage and printers.

I can connect a laptop wirelessly or wired to this router. The computers can browse the internet and see any computers on the network, but cannot connect to any. Specifically the data storage server. I am not too concerned with the laptops connecting to the desktops connected to the Linksys router, but I need them to connect to the data server especially and have the ability to print to at least one of our printers.

Any suggestions? I know that it's probably something really simple that I am missing or doing wrong, but I just can't put my finger on it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:Wireless Router and LAN Router Setup Problems

Read other 10 answers

Hey guys, i've searched high and low on these forums and the internet for how to setup a router behind another router. These forums helped me set it up, and I was good to do until I needed to forward some ports today. I cannot, for the life of me, get the ports to forward properly.

Here is exactly how I have it setup.

R1 - DLink 4300

DHCP Enabled - Range
NAT Enabled
R2 - Linksys BEFSR41 (It's old, I know.)

DHCP Disabled
NAT Disabled
IP -

I have a port to forward to a machine behind R2. It's IP is, setup with a static IP so it won't change. I have tried forward the ports in several ways, but they never end up reaching the machine.

I have tried the following forwarding techniques:

R1 ->
R1 -> (R2) then from R2 ->
R1 -> R2 with machine in R2 DMZ
R1 -> Machine with machine in R2 DMZ

Anyone have any idea of what I may have setup wrong? I can ping everything on the network from any of the machines behind R2, and get to anything else on both LANs (shares, etc) from any machine in the house.

Sorry if this has been discussed 9million times, but I've exhausted my resources and followed everything I have found to a T, and have yet to get any working results.

A:XP setup goes blank screen

Not so sure about the whole "expert" thing, but I'll take a guess...

If the machine was originally shipped with Windows 7, it's possible the hardware on the machine does not have workable drivers on the (older) Windows XP installation disk.

If this is the case, you might be able to find WinXP drivers on the manfacturer's web-site, or you might find documentation online of drivers for your machine that are known to work under WinXP.

What kind of machine is this (make, model, etc...) ?

I've been working on this for quite some time, and I keep running into roadblocks. Any suggestions would be helpful. I will attempt to summarize all the things I have tried.

I am attempting to clean install XP Home to a (semi) new system. New mobo (PCChips P23G v3.0); new Intel Celeron D 3.2MHz processor; one new stick 512mb US Modular DDRII; new Seagate 250GB HD; -these are all upgrades to an existing case with existing 300W p/s; floppy; CD-ROM.
Problem: setup loads files as normal, then reboots. When it comes back up and the GUI phase is suppose to start, it goes to a blank screen and nothing else happens.
I have tried different memory, different (older) HD; I've tried making changes to the BIOS (new board that is suppose to be XP compatible, but tried it anyway. -onboard video, sound, etc. No extra cards installed. Very minimal system); I've tried setup by booting from the CD, booting from floppies, xcopying I386 to the harddrive; I've tried loading an old version of Windows 98! and then doing an "upgrade" (actually a new install is the only option- it is an OEM version of XP Home, not an upgrade).
I've searched MS but nothing comes close to solving this issue.
I've built systems before with XP pro (and older) and have never had anything close to the problems with this one. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I am using the system spec as shown in the signature. Both monitors are connected to a single ATI 6870HD. The Dell U2311H is connected to the card via minidisplay-display port while the LG M227WD is connected via the DVI cable. The problematic monitor is the monitor over the display port (Dell). The monitor goes black randomly, sometimes during I play games. Sometimes it goes black more than few seconds, and I get a message on the screen saying power down as there is no reception from the display port.

I have updated the latest drivers, but still this problem persists. Any idea how to solve it?

A:One of the two monitors setup randomly goes blank/dark

Hi mystvearn,

My name is Ravi and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell.

I see that you are facing issues with your display. This might be because of the issue with the monitor or with the video card of your system. To isolate the issue I would request you to disconnect the VGA cable from the Dell monitor and leave it as it is. This will bring up the diagnostic screen of the monitor. Leave the monitor as it is for some time and check if it flickers.

If the Monitor flickers even in the diagnostics then the monitor has gone bad

If it doesn’t flicker then it is an issue with video card of the desktop.

Let us know the progress


Thanks & Regards

Hello. I shut down my computer today in a rush, and unplugged the powercord shortly thereafter (thunderstorm), and when I later went to turn it back on I suddenly have serious problems with it.

Attempting a normal boot (just letting it do its thing) fails just before the windows XP loading screen is supposed to show up. The very moment before it's supposed to show, I see the normal (?) white flashing underscore (DOS-style) for a second or two, and then it just blanks out. My monitors are still on/"active" but they're just showing black (so basically it looks as if the flashing underscore dissappears, and that's it).

I then tried booting from the XP CD. This works well up until it says "Now checking your hardware" (or similar), at which point it blanks out like before, so I never get a chance to attempt a repair install or similar.
(Press any key to boot from CD... -> Now checking hardware blah blah -> blank out)

I can get into BIOS, and that's about it. Attempting a safe-mode doesn't work (by pressing F8), but I don't know if I'm doing it right as I've never managed or tried to get to the safe-mode options on XP before.

I've tried:
Jumping the BIOS pins on the mobo
Resetting the BIOS to default and/or fail-safe settings
Unplugging the CD-drive
Disabling devices in the boot-order

is there a way to mix and match by connecting my two pc directly to the router and using wireless networking to connect the laptop to the router?

A:router setup

You would have the following setup:

PC2 network-card --> cable --> router

router <-- dial-up-modem (or cable/DSL at a later stage)

PC1 KB/Mouse/Video/Audio --> KVM-switch <-- one each mouse/keyboard/monitor/set of speakers (2.1 only)
PC2 KB/Mouse/Video/Audio --> KVM-switch <-/

In your other post I referred to a KVM with audio-switching like Belkin SOHO

To be prepare for all eventualities, get a wired/wireless router/switch like the SMC Barricade, this has everything you need, and adds a printer-server as well.

My new Belkin N1 Vision MIMO router (F5D8232-4) arrived today, and I'm muddling my way through, trying to set it up. The Quick Start Wizard seems to have worked well for basic internet connection for the primary computer, but I'm running into a roadblock attempting to set it up for the LAN to recognize my secondary computer.

I don't know exactly what the problem is, but I'm guessing that it is with the MAC addresses. There is no problem with the primary mac, but when I try to add the secondary's MAC, it always pops an error saying that it is invalid. This may be due to the manner in which I enter it, but not the basic number copied from ipconfig. The error message gives an example:

The correct MAC address should be one of xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx / xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx. x should be between 0-9 and a(A)-f(F)!

The numbers are separated by a space / and space, and each set is made of 12 numbers paired in duads as shown. Ipconfig separates them with hyphens, but apparently the router want colons instead, so that is what I used.

What is it that I'm missing?

A:New Router Setup

I figured out that part, I guess that the / was only there for an example. I deleted that and it took. However the secondary rig still doesn't appear on the LED display, so something else is missing.

Well; seeing as how most modems/routers have web based configuration pages; i would log into the config page(s) for the device you want to be a modem and see if there are any check boxes on any pages allowing you to configure it that way. However; it also could be that there might not be a way to do that as a lot of times combination modem/router devices are just that; and there is no way to make them one or the other only.

Ok, I'm not sure where to start so I'll try my best to update you.

In the summer of last year, I bought a wireless router so I could use my laptop while my dad used his desktop. We set it up, with not too many problems. Everything worked fine and I could use all of my internet functions (AOL, IE, YM, AIM, Etc.) without any problems. One day everything suddenly stopped working on the laptop except AOL, and even then I could only use it for messaging and web browsing. I couldnt play online games or anything. So I disconnected it and put everything in the box until a few weeks ago. I wanted to try again and someone suggested I reformat my lap top (since I was having troubles with it anyway) so I did. I'm trying to hook up the router to my desktop, but it does not want to work. I have AOL, so I figured this could be a problem, but it worked fine last year. I dont remember how I set it up last time, but the instructions are worthless because they only tell you how to hook it up and not configurate it.

I am on Windows XP, my laptop is also XP (incase it mattered) and the router is a Linksys 802.11b Wireless-B router.

I have the router setup page open in IE, so if anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hello Tech Support Guys,

As part of some summer research, I need to simulate a point to point network (Each computer having a separate channel to each of its peers). The equipment I have is 5 TP Link TL-R860 8 port routers, 5 laptops, and pretty much an unlimited supply of ethernet cables.

My first idea was simply to connect each computer to a router then connect all the routers together. But I could not get this to work even in the three computer/router case. I connected router A to router B and router C. This worked but is not what I want. The system stops working when I then connect router B to router C. With the third cable plugged in, I can't even access the router via its ip address.

So in summary, is there anyway to hook five routers together so that any two given routers have a direct connection between them?

I bought a Netopia ISDN router and trying to set it up to my WIN XP machine. I want it as my network hub eventually, but I cant even get it to work with 1 pc yet. I am soso experienced with networking, but I must be putting in gateway or IP addresses wrong somewhere. I can not ping anything and my PC wont even connect to my the modem.

I am having to do this manually because the software wont do it, it keeps telling me that my pc is not DHCP enabled so it wont run the software. I am trying to configure the router through telnet and its fine, except something isn't working. Any help would be greatly appreciated, 2 weeks messing with this and I am ready to run over it with my car.

Hi, a couple months back I was helped in this post http://forums.techguy.org/networking/540229-making-my-router-into-access.html

Now, my friend who lives in the same town as me, has the same setup. I did the exact same prodcedure that worked for me, but for some reason it just doesn't work on his.

I assigned his router the ip and disabled dhcp on it. The range on his modem was set to

After moving the cable plugged into the modem into one of the open slots on his router, the internet did not work. I released/renewed his ip on each computer and got them to work. Everything seems to be going fine except for the fact that know he can't access his router at for some reason. I was pretty sure I set mine and his up the exact same way and I can access my router but he can't. Do you know why?

His internet after that seemed to be going incredibly slow, so I reset the router and his setup is now back to what it was before I started tinkering.

Any ideas on how to get the router as an access point to the modem?

I'm going to display my ignorance, and hope someone can help clarify my confusion.

Here's what I have

1. A new Windows 7 Ultimate 64 computer, connected to a cable modem
2. A Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless N Router model WNDR3300
3. An older Windows XP Home SP 3 computer with (at present) no internet connection.
4. A USB wireless network adapter that I want to use on the old computer (Cisco Dual Band Wireless N USB Adapter, model WUSB600N).

Here's what I want to do.

1. Connect the wireless router via a network cable to my new computer
2. Connect the wireless network adapter to my old Windows XP computer
3. Connect my cable modem to the wireless router
4. Have both computers share the internet connection, and (if I can figure out how to do it) have them also share files, folders, and printers (I have two printers, both installed on the new computer.

Now for the points of my confusion.

1. The VERY brief quick setup sheet that comes with the wireless router says: (1) Before you unpack or connect the router, insert the CD into a computer accessing the internet via a wired connection. (It has a picture showing NOT to insert the CD into a computer with no internet connection). (2). Follow the CD instructions to connect and configure your router.

2. Although the manual on the CD has a lot more detail, it is (to me at least) still confusing.

3. When I got the router, I asked about compatibility with Windows 7, and was told that I needed to download an installat... Read more

A:Setup Help, Wireless Router

Actually you can do what you want using the wireless connections on both PC's. I have 3 setup wireless 2 laptops and 1 desktop. I have my Belkin N+ router connected to my DSL Modem, my desktop is a DELL 435T 9000 Studio XPS running Windows 7 64 Ultimate using a Belkin N+ USB wireless device, the Alienware M17x is using the Broadcomm N wireless device and running Windows 7 Professional 64 and the DELL XPS Gen1 laptop is now running Windows 7 Professional 32 using a Belkin N USB device it had been running XP Professional SP3 using the DELL wireless device which connected at 54 Mbps.

All share 2 printers on the network which has 128 bit encryption and 2 of the network drives are USB hard drives, one is attached directly to the router the other via a USB hub off the M17x, the other is an eSATA drive off the desktop, the desktop is generally running at 270 Mbps as is the M17x. Having them all run wireless allows you greater flexibility in setting them up where you want them, your biggest hurdle will be drivers for the wireless device you want to run on the XP PC if you have those you should be golden.

Geez, I just looked at your SPEC's were nearly twins!

A:Has anyone here got the Samknows router setup?

Hello Runkle,

You should be able to open the Network and Sharing Center and click on the See full map link. This will open the Network Map where you can hover the mouse pointer over your listed router to see it's IP address and/or click on it to actually open the router's log in page in your default web browser.

Hope this helps,

My Current Situation on my home network is four PCs on 1 router, which then goes to the internet box thingy ( really tech saavy laungage, isn't it? )

Well, the problem is the router is full. We want to be able to use our Xbox360 and PC of my brothers online, and switching the cords is not viable, as it screws up the interet for everybody else.

We bought a router. We planned on taking that router and plug in an Xbox360 and the PC of my brothers into it. Then we would plug the Router into the remaining slot of the router, which unplugging the PC from would create.

It didn't work. It won't conncet to the internet. Is there anything cheaper than a router that would be work for this? Maybe an ethernet splitter or something? If not, how can I make it work?

I got the Linksys Wireless-G (Model WRT54G) Router for Christmas, but I'm having problems with setup. There's a CD with it, and I followed the directions exactly.

(Here are the directions)

1. Unplug your modem's power
2. Unplug the network cable that is currently plugged into your computer.
3. Plug that cable into the "internet" port on your router.
4. Plug the power back into your modem
5. Plug the other network cable into the ethernet port on the computer
6. Plug the other end of that cable into one of the four ports labelled 1,2,3 or 4 on the back of your router.
7. Plug the power adapter into the router, and then plug its' other end into the wall socket.

OK, now here's my problem. The final instruction says that the leds on the front of the router should be on (or at least a few of them) but none are. All cable are connected, all directions have been followed exactly. So... anyone got any ideas why this isn't working?

Thanks in advance.

btw, I am only connected to the web now because I plugged my modem in directly to start over.

A:Router And Switch Setup Help!!

This may sound like too much work, but at www.dlink.com you can download or print the entire manual for this setup. It is about 110 pages...
Their online support tells you more than you want to know. If you can stand the time it takes, you will be a lot smarter user after you follow their examples.
Also, they have downloads for a Quick Setup, and a Full setup... and very often DLink has significant recent updates released since the DLink was put on the market.
Regarding your question, it has a lot to do with whether you are just communicating between one and four computers, or whether you are connecting to an Internet Connetion such as a DSL modem or Cable modem.
In those cases, your modem has one RG45 port. You plug one end of a CAT5 or CAT6 Network or ethernet cable into this modem. The other end goes into a WAN port on the DLink. That switch then distributes the signal through its four ports (and often a wireless antenna) to the other devices you want connected.
You use the install disc that came with the DLink, or you can download the software from the DLink site.
Usually, the switch is not enough by itself. It is used to distribute and communicate the signal. It needs a router or cable or DSL modem to be complete. The router does the basic job and does not need the switch unless you are attempting to communicate with a variety of devices, and your router does not have enough ports.
