You should try checking the wireless security & channel.

make sure if your network requires a security you should check that your typing the right one cause this is case sensitive.

make sure also to check the wireless signal of your router or Access point be sure to set that on channel 11.

How to convert to access point


I assume you're talking about using a wireless router as an access point. First, you need to run a wire from on of the LAN ports the new wireless router to one of the LAN ports of the new wireless router. (The back of your router has one Internet/WAN port (often yellow or blue) and several LAN ports.) The simplest way is to use a Cat5 or Cat6 patch cable, which you can buy in any length from 1 to 300 feet. (It's possible you'll need a crossover cable, but I haven't needed one of those in years.) If you're thinking of putting them in different parts of the house, and you can't run a cable between them, then you probably can't do this. (There are devices that are capable of creating a wireless bridge, but you'd need both devices to share that capability, and it's not typical on home devices.) You could try getting a pair of devices that use your house's electrical wiring (like these http://us.dlink.com/product-category/home-solutions/connect/powerline/), but that's not always successful (you need both outlets on the same circuit, for one thing).

Second, you need to change the configuration on the old router/new access point. That box is doing a lot of things that you don't need it to do any more, but I don't bother disabling them, except for one thing: DHCP. Wireless routers are generally configured to hand out IP (network) addresses to other devices on the network (your computers, DVRs, game consoles, etc.). If you have two devices (your new wireless router and the access point you're creating) handing out network addresses, it can get messy. So you need to log into the old router and disable DHCP (which some manufacturers call "assign network addressing" or "IP address distribution" or something like that).

One other step you may need to take is to change the IP address of the new access point. Still logged into the router, find where the LAN (local) IP address is set, and change it if you can. There are 2 reasons this can be important.
1) If your access point and your new wireless router both have the same IP address, you'll get lots of problems.
2) If your access point and your new wireless router are not on the same subnet, you'll only be able to login to the access point through a wired connection (and even then you may have to change your computer's IP address to match the access point's subnet.)
You can change the access point's address to anything you want, but you need to make sure of 2 things:
1) No other device has that IP address.The easiest way to ensure this is to make the last number in the address 253. That address almost never gets used.
2) It's on the same subnet as your new wireless router. I won't get into subnetting; what you need to know for your home network is that devices on the network can only communicate with other devices whose address starts the same way. For all the home routers I've seen, it's either 192.168.0 or 192.168.1. So you need to log into your new router and see if it has the address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (or you could open a command window on your computer and give it an "ipconfig" command, which would show you your computer's IP address, which will have the same 3 numbers). Then login to the access point and give it the IP address 192.168.0.253 or 192.168.1.253.

In a nutshell, make sure the first 3 numbers match all the other devices on the network, and that the last number does not match any device on the network.

Good luck!

Wireless connection goes of then will not connect


Hi
I get that you was connect to the internet by wireless connection .
so in you connect with access point connected directly to dsl modem so try to restart the access point and try to connect again ...and reset the wireless in your device... may be it works .

I think this problem occur cause access point or DHCP server cant give your device new IP address..
so you must clean the DHCP leased addresses by restart the access point or enter to server and do that from DHCP .

else you can try to assign static ip address has the same network id with router ..
for example : if router ip is 192.168.1.1 so you must assign ip address like :
192.168.1.x while x number between 2 and 254
hope that helps you

I need to either block certain ip or mac addresses or only allow a select few. how can i do this.


Well, when it comes to ip addresses, you must either turn off dhcp (which automatically gives out ip addresses to devices joining the network) and assign static ip addresses to each individual device on the network, or simply decrease the number of ip addresses your router's dhcp gives out by narrowing the dhcp range. Blocking ip addresses is an ineffective way of preventing access to the network. MAC Address filtering, on the other hand, is much more secure. Usually this is locating under Wireless - MAC Filter in the router's configuration page. When you get to the menu, you usually have the option of making an allow or deny list. If you are having problems with unknown devices, I would go with allow only option, and enter each of your device's MAC addresses. The one main problem is that you will have to do this every time a new device is added to the network, but it makes the network much more secure.

I have a wireless G router with a remote that connects to the router. It connects to the router but will not go on out to the internet. When I type IP config and check, it gives the wrong weird IP address....


If you are getting IP address like 169.254.x.y ( x and y might be any numbers), then it is autogenerated IP address.
Computer generates this IP address when it doesn't get IP address from the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you have correct network key or password.
Check the wireless settings of the router.
Make sure that there is no static IP address assigned to the wireless network connection.

This problem is common.
This error message occures when the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. To get the wireless router to issue the wireless with a new IP address the connection needs to be repaired.
Right click on the wireless icon and click on repair.

Setting up wireless connection


It will be one of two things or both - either your computer is not setup for DHCP or your router is using the same IP address as your ISP or both.

To check ISP IP address connect your computer to your modem then: from start => run => CMD (hit enter after this)
a command window opens, type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes.
The line with "IP address" gives you your ISP IP addr.
Compare this with what you get from your router manual if they are the same then do the following:

To configure your computer to use a DHCP IP address, go to the Control panel => network connections => Properties (right click on your default connection) => double click Internet protocol (From general tab) => (a new window pops up) from the general tab ensure that "obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.

To change the IP address of your router check your manual and do the following:
IP Addr => 10.10.1.1
Sub net mask => 255.255.0.0
Default gateway => IP address from your ISP
Make sure to the router is set to act as a DHCP server.

You should be up and running.
