Hope that helps..........

This is an excerpt from the file concerning NOT using the pogoplug...

You can access the drives connected to GoFlex Net without using the Pogoplug Web
interface. Follow these steps to set up local network access.
1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Network or right-click My Network Places >
Explore.
An Explorer window opens showing all computers on your network.
2. Locate and then double-click the computer name associated with GoFlex Net.
NOTE: Your GoFlex Net name starts with the letters "FADS" followed by the last six
alphanumeric characters of its MAC address. This 12 digit address, preceded by "MAC:",
is printed on the label on the bottom of GoFlex Net.
You can now access each drive connected to GoFlex Net. Access is regulated by the file
sharing permissions you set using the Pogoplug service.

Hope this helps...

Gateway not pinging from dwl 3200 ap . AP=192.168.4.250/24 in the same subnet, gateway=192.168.4.1 , gateway assign also on wireless adapter , wireless adapter address also in the same subnet with right...


Remove the cables from the gateway router to the switch to leave only the uplink cable or connection to your telephone socket.
Test connectivity by plugging your laptop or computer directly in to the gateway router and test web access using an Ethernet cable.
Your laptop /computer may need to be rebooted for new ip. If ok reattach the unmanaged switch a retry by attaching the Ethernet cable to one of the ports on the switch. If ok, this limits the problem to the access point.
The main problem is that you have two layer 3 devices connected together by a layer 2 switch.
The solution would be to retain the configuration on the gateway if all ok. Change the access point to a different sub net and SSID to the gateway router.
If you can shut down the broadcasting from the gateway as all WLAN will be done through the access point.
Ensure that DHCP and DNS is switched on, on the gateway router.
All computers should be configured to use the gateway router address as this will allow the gateway to provide routing across the network.

Hi, when I try any connection wireless. net book (acer aspire ONE


Here are a few things to try.
If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2, refer to this Microsoft Article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/892896.
Try powering off your router for 30 seconds or so and turing it back on and try to reconnect.
Check to see if the router is giving you a IP address by running ipconfig in the command prompt. Start > Accessories > Command Prompt, and type in ipconfig. If you see an address of 169.254.x.x your router is not giving you an ip address and I would reboot your modem, computer and router at the same time.
Also could try connecting your laptop directly to your modem. If you get a connection I would contact support for the router.

I am unable to log into My Facebook I am in Nanjing China


Hi Margaret : Here is what to do :

- VPN
A VPN lets you access Facebook from a normal internet connection. It’s a little bit of software that you install on your computer and then run after you connect to the internet. It sends all of your internet information through a different computer (located in the US or UK for example)… Try www.witopia.net for more information!
- Proxy
A less elegant option, but just as useful, is to use a web based proxy. There are many of these available, one of the best is ’sneak me’ (www.sneakme.net). You input the web address that you want to access and then click on ‘OK’ and you can go straight to the site you need.
- Business firewall bandwidth
Some businesses buy bandwidth directly from Chinese telecommunications companies, so multinationals for example can have full access to the Internet without any interruption.
Good luck

Connection by network cable is not working.


When you connect two computers together without a network/LAN hub you need to use a cross over cable.
Both computers need to be in the same workgroup (name).
Both computers need to have different TCP/IP address and be in the same IP address range (ie a fixed IP address)
If you want to see and copy and move files between computers, the drives and or folders have to be sharing on.

This is the general network setup, you can restrict users on each computer with full access or limited access to drives and folders.

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...
