You should go through steps 1 and 2 in the manual to collect important ISP information. Once you have collected all the required information simply plug your cable or DSL modem into the wan port on the Gateway Router and plug your Macintosh into any one of the numbered ports. Plug the Gateway Router into a power source. Your Ethernet LAN adapter should be set to get a DHCP address. Reboot your Mac and it should get an IP address in the range of 192.168.2.x. Now open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) and type in the address bar 192.168.2.1. Skip step #3 in the manual as it only applies to Windows computers. Now continue with step #4.

Belkin f9k11009v1, Macintosh unable to connect


First see if you are able to connect to the internet wired to the router,
-If you are able to connect using the wire connection then I suggest to turn off the wireless security settings for the time being and see what happens.

Wireless
See if you are able to ping your router.
Ref: http://www.wikihow.com/Ping-on-Mac-OS
-Make sure that the TCP/IP settings are set to DHCP and make sure that it is getting an IP address and Default Gateway.

If you are able to ping the router then see if you are able to ping google by name and by IP. (An IP address for google,com is 74.125.141.100)

If you are able to ping both then you should be able to access the internet.

If you are able to ping only the google's IP address then you have a DNS issue.
-See if you can set your DNS address manualy to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Ref: https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

If you are able to ping only google by name then see if you are able to access google by typing in the replied IP address in the address bar of your web browser on a computer that is working fine.
-If you are not able to access google with the address then you may have something stooping you on your machine. Check for firewalls and antivirus to see if they have any network configurations.

Can i get the procedure to set up a secure network. thank you


A manual for the router can be found here
Instructions for setting up a secure wireless network can be found on page 27 - under Customising Security Settings.
Make sure you use the "custom encryption key" option, and specify you're own passphrase

I would suggest using WPA-PSK authentication (if possible), as it is more secure
Hope this helps

Hi, how do i find the security key for my wireless router? it works fine haed wired but wont let me use it wireless???


To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

DL 524 router with a mac


When you connect the MAC to the router with the CAT 5 cable it works , that means the wired connection of the router is working but the wireless is not working.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router.

A friend installed vista the computer had been


1st connect with landline cable. Make sure all is working fine. Then enter a command prompt. (Start-Run->cmd {Enter}) Type "ipconfig". The gateway should be either 192.xx.xx.xx. or 10.xx.xx.xx. If you have a small network then your gateway is probably your wireless router. If your router is not your wireless device you will have to find it using ipscan.exe or scanner.

Let's say for arguments sake that your gateway is your wireless device. Open up a browser windows and input the gateway as "http:// gatewaynumbers ". At this point you need to check your wireless settings.

You need your SSID, Wireless Security (WEP, WPA, etc.) encryption, and passphrase" from your wireless router/access point.

(Note: unless you are the only one using the router try not to make any changes until you clear it with other users)

Check to see if your router has mac filtering on or off. Off is better while troubleshooting. Another term for MAC address filtering is Wireless Card list, there are others but it depends on the router you are using. If MAC or IP filtering is on then you will NOT be able to connect to the SSID unless you are on the list... hence disable for now is good idea.

Disconnect from wired landline (you should not have two connections wireless and wired at the same time). Assuming that your Wireless device driver is working properly (see Device Manager under network devices) you should be able to right-click your wireless device on the taskbar and select view available networks. You should see SSID here. Input your info and you should be good to go.

If not you will have to enter SSID manually in the Network Connections area. Right-click Wiress Connection from Network Connections and Select properties. 2nd tab should be wireless connections. Click the Add button and enter your information and click OK.

To test you should be able to go to a command prompt and type ipconfig and get numbers similar to when you had landline connected. To test your internet connnection type " Ping yahoo.com" and you should get 4 replys. Hope this help. Best Regards, -

Hi,
For my opinion I suggest using MAC address filter, every network adapter haves a unique MAC address which you can use to only permit those computers with the MAC addresses you want.
Do this method with every wireless computer you want to access your router.
  1. Go to Star -> Run, type cmd and click OK
  2. Type ipconfig/all, here you will see a list of your network adapters, look for your wireless adapter and take note on the physical address number (something like 00-4F-....)
  3. Now go to your wired computer (the one that is wired directly to your router) run Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1 and enter. The router may ask you user name and password, if that's the case try the default password for your router (linksys wrt54g is username: admin, password: admin)
  4. Afer this you go to access restrictions and click Edit list of PC's.
  5. A window will pop up, you will see input boxes with labels like MAC 01, MAC 02, etc...
  6. Type the physical address you have got from the wireless computer in any input box labeled MAC 01, MAC02, etc...
  7. Click save settings and go back to Access Restrictions, make sure you have checked Allow.
  8. Now click on Enable and then save settings.
If you have more than one wireless computer hooked up with your router then do this process with each wireless computer you have (it is not necessary to do this with your wired computer).
Hope this works!

Absolutely, the Gateway Router is OS independent. All you need is a computer with a properly configured Ethernet LAN adapter and a web browser to configure the Gateway Router. Any platform that supports Ethernet & TCP/IP is compatible with the router. You may need to provide additional hardware & software (i.e. Ethernet cards and/or software drivers) to ensure that all clients operate with the router.
