    If this is a new wireless card, I'd be looking to get another brand. It sounds like your PC hates the new hardware.

Hi, I am having trouble connecting my new laptop to cable as I don't have a wireless network as yet. The error says there is no IP recognised when I run a diagnostic test. Cheers Pete


Go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager and check the network adapter is OK.
If there is a yellow ? against the LAN driver and the wireless card then the device drivers for these device have to be installed.
After installation then you will n\be able to connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router and configure the wireless settings.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

My security key does not work on new laptop, have excellent signal.Need help.


Use an Ethernet cable to connect your laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router, and reconfigure the router to set the SSID, the encryption-level, and the password. Then, you can disconnect the cable, and use your wireless network adapter.

Second computer connected to this model gives message "Network cable unplugged" when it is not! network connection intermittent. What can we do please?


Hi Jackie!
It sounds like a communication problem between the router and the computer. Try the following solutions to solve this:

1.Connect the LAN cable to other free LAN port in the router.

2. Try using a different LAN cable.

3. a. Open Device Manager
b. Go to Network adapters. Click on the "+" sign next to it.
c. Double-click on your network adapter.
d. On Advanced tab, look for Speed/duplex settings (or Media Type)
and change it's value to Full autonegotiation (or AutoSelect).
e. Click OK on all windows.
f. Close the Device Manager and restart your computer.

4. Reinstall or update your network adapter device drivers.


A "workaround" solution - use a wireless network adapter to connect wirelessly to the router.

Hope I helped,
Pelu.

So i have my desktop set up online, but i want to get my laptop hooked up as well and i have a router. how do i hook that up to?


On the right bottom corner of your screen, you should see a message/icon about wireless networks.

Select the icon and you should see a list of wireless networks. Select your network, add your password (if you set up a password) and you should be connected.

Open your browser.

Hope this helps.

Wireless Networking With a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GX Router?


k2rt9ceswg,

You seem rather savvy so I won't bore you with frivolous explanation. Essentially ISPs detect the MAC address of whatever device is plugged into their network. In the case of your laptop connected wired to your modem, the MAC address of your wired adapter is what is tied to your ISP account. When you plugged in a router, the MAC address of that router was different than your laptop's wired network adapter and your ISP said "nope, not letting that connect". This is something most ISPs are doing now-a-days.

You can get around this by following these steps:
  1. Plug your PC back into the modem wired
  2. Ensure you have internet connection again
  3. Go to Start -> run and type "cmd" without quotes
  4. Type "ipconfig /release" without the quotes (there is a space in there that needs to be in there)
  5. Disconnect your PC from the modem and plug the router into it
  6. Plug another LAN cable into the router and your laptop
  7. In the same command prompt, type "ipconfig /renew"
If the computer pulls an IP address for the wired ethernet, you should be all set to disconnect the cable from the router and PC and try to connect to it wireless. If it doesn't pull an IP address, you'll need to contact your ISP and inform them that you're having trouble getting your new router to work with your existing network.

You might also consider depressing the reset button located on the back of your Linksys router to set the router to its default configuration. This would clear all previous settings if there were any and might clear up any configuration options you had set when previously using this router.

try re-installing the driver for your USB adapter or create a new wireless network name.

You could also try to download the latest driver for your USB adapter. uninstall the old driver before installing the latest driver for your USB adapter.

Wireless Network Dropping Out- NetGear WPN824 V.2 & Atheros AR5006EXS Wireless Network Adapter


Fergus,

Steps to troubleshoot are as follows.

1. check the physical connections. Go to a broadband testing site to see if you are connecting correctly b/c i am assuming you are wanting to connect to the internet. if not see next step. A common problem with internet connections is the timeout setttings on netgear you should set it to 0 for indefinite.

2. if your problem is related to just the connection between your pc and your router then you should just plug a lan cable in first to see if you can connect to the router without dropouts. This will help you to determine if the problem is with the router.

3. If it is the router then you need to double check your router configurations. Common problems are firewall rules, port forwarding settings etc etc.

4. if it is not the router then double check that the pc and the network card is working properly. If it is then make sure the the wireless adapter support the protocl eg. wep, wpa, wpatsk etc..make sure they are the same and that you should be setting the network key.

5. one final check is you need to turn off some of the rangemax functionality on the router b/c your wireless adaptor probably doesnt support it. try unsecure connections for a while to see if it works then start adding functionality to determine which one is the culprit.

I hope this help.

smeags.
