Check your windows network configuration. You may have to go through the wireless setup wizard by adding a connection. At least you know they recognize each other. There also may be a security code that is needed in the network setup in windows. right click on the network connection and look at properties. only change one thing at a time and document what changes you make.

Hi i bought the smc wireless router and i tries to connect it but i couldnt figure out how to connect it because i have a laptop and my internet is connected from my modem to my laptop but i cant seem to...


I'm unsure of the exact part number here but using the model number I checked the manual. This looks like it's just an access point which extends a current network you have. If you only have your laptop, this device and your internet modem it may not give you the wireless connectivity you're looking for. On a normal setup you would plug your modem into a router, plug your laptop into the router and set it up with all your DSL/Cable connection information as well as wireless on/off. You can then unplug from the router and continue life. with this one it's only connecting to an existing setup (another router or another wireless network) and extending it.
If you are looking for a solution to give you a router that connects to your modem and gives you wireless or adding multiple devices on a single connection I would recommend returning this and getting an all-in-one router such as this: http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Routers/Linksys-E1000-Wirelessn-router_stcVVproductId97826160VVcatId551966VVviewprod.htm?icid=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn&src2=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn

I moved and switched from cable internet connection to dsl. My router is not getting the internet connection, do I need to do anything special with the change from cable to dsl or a new location???


Hi,
I'm afraid so. I'm not familiar with your particular device, but usually DSL/cable routers are completely different beasts and are rarely compatible with both connection types.
It might be worth checking with your ISP - they should be well aware of what kit is compatible with your current connection.
Hope this helps,
Good luck,
Raf

SETTING WIRELESS


1. Shut off the power to your cable or dsl modem for about 30 minutes.

2. Connect the ethernet cable from your modem to the Internet port on the router.

3. After 30 minute power on ONLY the modem NOT the router

4. Wait about 60 seconds and power on the router

Try it now.

Cant get the Linksys to find the Optus DSL network


do you have security enabled on the wireless router?
if so, disable to security and see if you can connect.
if it works, check if you set the router security to use WPA2- it is possible that your laptop/wireless card doesn't support it- try to use WPA instead

Do you have DSL or cable? Try resetting your router. Press the reset button on the back of the router and hold it it for about 5 seconds. When the router comes back up type in the router address: 192.168.1.1. If your ISP is using cable, make sure that you have DHCP enabled. If DSL, you will have to put in your username and password given to you by your ISP and you will have to enable PPPOE on your router.

My Linksys Wireless A P only allows one computer to connect


You need to get a router in order to share the Internet connection. The existing Internet connection (from the DSL/cable modem for instance) goes into the WAN port of the router/firewall, then you connect the AP to one of the LAN ports.

Today it is often a better idea to buy a wireless router instead, i.e a router with built-in wireless AP. They are very inexpensive.

My wireless is set on unsecured how do i change it to secured


Your wireless router should have come with software, which allows you to set a password on it. Install the software on your PC. Then run it. It should discover the router. You log in with

username: admin
password: admin

then you should be able to set the password.

Another way into the admin interface, is to type the IP address in your Internet browser if you know it (often 192.168.1.1)

Dsl internet connection sharing


Did you run the set up cd? If so, then try to do powercycle. Reboot everything. if your wired connection works then access the set up page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar of the PC that is already online. Leave username blank, "admin"  (lowercase letters is your password). Click status, if you already have an ip address and Dns then you are good to go. If you dont have then do a mac clone under "set up" then check the password for wireless connection under wireless security. you can use that to log on to the wireless netowrk on your two pcs.
if all of these seems to be confusing, you can call. 18003267114 for manual help.
