When I log into my router, it has a tab down the page that shows wireless settings. In there, it shows the password for the wireless key.

I cannot open it says the connection is reset.I am connected by broadband connection. I don't have internet access.troubleshooting saysdns server is not connected

It sounds to me that the default IP address for router has been changed or your laptop/computer IP address is not within 192.168.1.x network. Here is what you can do:- -Check you cable connection to make sure it plugged in. -check your laptop/computer IP address by going to Start-run-key in CMD and click on CMD (assuming you are using vista or 7) you should see a black screen after that. Then keyin IPconfig and click Enter look for IP address and let me know what are the number and we can start troubleshooting from here.

When i try to connect any kind of laptop to my, belkin 397f but it will only say limited acess with no internet but it will let a wii, dsi, and ipod touch connect

Check these options :
- Check that you ebtred the Wireless key correctly.
- Check that a DHCP server is configured. otherwise make your laptop ip addresse the same as the Wii ip adresse, just change the last number by increasing 100, ane make the other parameters the same, (mask, gateway, dns server). it has to be only one different ip adresse for each equipement.
- Check the laptops doesn't have a fixed ip addresse.

My PC is connected to this modem/router and works fine. All the laptops in the house show that they are connected but I can't get any websites on any of them. Also, when I connect the laptop with an...

Log in on your router manager http://192.168.x.x and enable DHCP.DHCP provides an automated way to distribute and update IP addresses and other configuration information on a network. A DHCP server provides this information to a DHCP client through the exchange of a series of messages, known as the DHCP conversation or the DHCP transaction. If the DHCP server and DHCP clients are located on different sub-nets, a DHCP relay agent is used to facilitate the conversation.

  1. Connect to your router (by typing or into the URL bar) and log in. Check your user manual or documentation if you do not know the log-in credientials.
  2. 180px-dhcp_router_setup.jpg magnify-clip.png Router Setup tab Make sure you are in the Setup -> Basic Setup category.
  3. 180px-dhcp_router_disabled.jpg magnify-clip.png DHCP is Disabled Scroll down until you see 'DHCP Server' - if it is disabled, select 'Enable'

This is optional, and is totally dependant on personal preference.In this picture, the maximum number of DHCP clients is 3. You may need to increase this number according to how many people will need a dynamic IP address on your network. Once the max is reached, no one else can get an address until one expires!
  5. Use the DNS servers provided to you by your ISP, or use the following DNS servers:,,; There are many DNS servers out there. It's best to use your ISP's if possible.

My linksys router wrt54gv8 not connected to work for my laptop wireless but have connection to my desktop

If I understand you correctly. You cannot connect wirelessly at work with you laptop but you can connect with your desktop.
1. The laptop has to be allowed on the network by either MAC address ( Media Access Control) number or an IP (Internet protocol) address.
2. This is done by the administrator of the router. To allow the device to be seen by the router and and assign an IP address to that device to gain access to the server and be able to connect to the Internet.
3. At work you will have an IT administrator that will give a password/ user name to allow you to obtain access to the company server.
I hope this helps. Have a great day.

Yes sometimes the security key that you need for the wireless can be located on the 2wire device its located on the bottom part of it on a sticker its a 10 character key , but if you cannot find there you can find the key by accessing the 2wire setup page.

Netgear FWG114P Print Sever not functioning on upper level of LAN

if you set your dynalink's dhcp list up to a certain number (example: .1-.99). connect cat5 cable from dynalink lan port, into print server lan port. make sure print server can be setup as access point. if so, turn access point setting to on. make print server static ip address the next number outside of dhcp range (example: .100).

.100 ip address is the port number you should then be printing to, using a tcp/ip port.

if print server can be set up this way, then it now becomes wireless access point for all wireless devices. i am assuming, since you didn't mention it, that the dynalink is NOT wireless. if it is, the the print server just becomes another device on your existig network, taking the place of the network adapter the printer doesn't have. just set it up the same way you would set up another workstation on the network. except, make it static.

Lots of people have access to my internet connection in the place i live how can i lock it so they cant use it

setup WEP Security Access....


access router
Click on Wireless
Set/CHANGE SSID (save)

click on Wireless Security
Change Disabled to WEP
choose 64 bit or 128 bit
create PASS PHRASE - any common word, about 8 characters long REMEMBER THIS
Click Generate

this will deliver a series of KEYs. Write (1) KEY down and bring it to your known wireless devices (laptops, desktops, etc).

Save & power cycle all devices connected (this will reset all wired connections as well)

go over to your wireless devices, re-identify connection. you will need the KEY. Carefully enter in all letters and confirm. save these settings.

This should cure your problem. and never run a nekid wireless system unless you want others to access.

Added solution:

in Basic Setup, around the DCHP Setup you can also limit the number of users. My calculations are normally - Number of Wired Connections + Number of Laptops +1 for emergency service. This will allow X+1 connections, therefor limiting the number of potiential users to be able to grab an IP Address.

Best of luck!

If you have further issues, please contact me at 906-495-1707 or via YIM or through this website.

Hardwiring laptop


the number ports are the actual ports at the back of the router where you will plug the cable to connect your computer directly to the router.

to find the network key for your wireless connection, you need to connect your computer directly to the router and access the setup page of your router. You need to go to the wireless settings and get the wireless network key from there.
