On your laptop you have to change the mode of connection on the bottom of the laptop screen. On the bottom there should be an option where you can change from LAN to WLAN.

Wireless router connection


IF the ROUTER has wireless "enabled", and your device/computer has wireless (and the wireless is ON) then you should see the router's name when you search for "wireless connections" click on the name and enter the password for the router connection and should be able to connect, IF you can't see the router's name then unplug the router and wait 20 seconds to 1 minute, then plug the router back-in wait for the wireless "light" to come back on, and try again. Hope this helps...

I can't watch videos online when I'm connected wirelessly with my Dell labtop(vista) to a belkin g router. The videos upload for about a minute then suddenly stop. What settings can I change to fix this.


Possibly a weak signal, I suppose you have all the codecs installed correctly, flash and so on.

Try moveing closer to the station. Also you can try changeing the speed settings of the connection in the modem setup.

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

When you try to connect via wireless, does it ask for your wep key? Also try and running wireless network connection utility in setting up wireless networks, I'm sure you have already done this, but, it doesn't hurt to try it again and see if there is anything you may have overlooked.

I am trying to set up xbox live for my son but when i try to go live on the xbox dashboard it says that wireless network not connected but i have a wireless network running in my house and need to know how...


  1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

  2. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

  3. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

  4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

  5. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
  6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

    On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

    On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
Tips:
  1. Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need:
  • Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)

HOW TO HOOK UP MY LABTOP TO THE NET WITHOOUT USING A ETHERNET CORD


Hey BARKLY54,

If you didn't have the opportunity to write down your wireless security passkey/phrase previously, you should still be able to obtain it by accessing your wireless router's main menu. This is normally done by visiting one of the following websites from a computer that is already connected to the wireless network, or is hard-wired into the router itself:

192.168.0.1
or
192.168.1.1

Please keep in mind that the default address you'll need to visit may vary depending on your router model, so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information.

Once you've gotten to this page, you should be prompted to provide a user name and password to access the router's main menu. This default user name and password are generally provided in the owner's manual as well (or in documentation given to you by your ISP if you had that company set up your network), unless you have made any changes to these in the past.

After you’ve signed in, you should be able to find your wireless network passkey/phrase under an option named something similar to “Wireless Settings” or “Wireless Security.”

It is important to remember however, that any changes made while in the router’s main menu (intentional or accidental) can have a direct impact on every device currently connected to the wireless network. If you’re not sure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest contacting your ISP or local technical support agent for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

I have a linksys for my computer and labtop my daughter needs a network key to get on her laptop where do i find this number.


I am going to assume that you have a Linksys wireless router connected to your computer.

The network key is set in the router by using it's set-up page. Usually, you type in a 26 character code or a text string that is used to form the key.
After setting up the router, you turn on the laptop, scan for available networks, and select yours. Then you enter the network key, which will be exactly same as that you entered into the router setup.

If you are having trouble connecting from the laptop, I suggest you first try setting up the wireless router to use no encryption, just to make sure the laptop can find the network. Once this has been established, activate the security features.

Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.


Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.
