Problems with setting up wireless router wrt310n, wireless printer Dell 968W, Dell XPS laptop and Hughes net

Finally thought I had everything hooked up and working. Just a little while ago, could not print, ran back through set up. Then I lost connection on everything. Received a message "cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server, pinged host no reponse. Said to reset network adapter. Could not get anything to work... Had to hook back up straight to my Hughes net HN7000S to get back on line. Can you please let me know how to hook up everything (, WRT310N wireless router, Wireless Dell 986Q printer and still be able to use the laptop also) My desktop is a XPS 420. I would greatly appreciate it. I do not want to have to keep hooking and unhooking everything, or keep having to set it up etc, you know what I mean.

    to hook up everything.. HEres how my network is set.

    Adsl -> switch -> wireless router.

    Connect your internet cable box / adsl directly to your wireless router, internet port, or place a hub or other device in the middle, if you need to. If not, just plug it directly to model / cable / adsl.

    So connect directly

    Hudges <-> Wireless

    But reset the wireless and reconfigure.

    Ok, I see.

    Connect the satellite modem to the wireless internet port. and reconfigure the wireless ones you have reset it. It should work fine.

    Let me know if you need any instructions, about the wireless or how to configure it again.



  • Ekse Oct 05, 2008

    Make sure you enable security on the wireless, if left open, anyone could go in and change settings causing your network not to work. also the satellite connection might be unreliable at times.

I currently have 2 sony computers connected to my Linksys WRT310N Router. I just bought a new Dell Laptop for my home business and I can't get it connected.

I'm assuming your new computer uses Win 7, so try opening Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center - then elect to set up a new wireless network. You should 'see' your wifi network - if not, then come back with that info & we'll take it from there...

I purchased your product,(router1000) Hughes Net hooked it to my laptop and now I am trying to connect a wireless adapter to my other computer. Being asked for a password. Where do I find this?? Both...

It is looking for a NetWork Key or password that was set up when your router was installed. That network key protects your network from some one else connecting to your network. You can reset your router where it will forget that network key and when you start it back up it will be an open network not needng a password, but you are going to have to learn how to enter your router's set uo menu and replace that factory setting with another key. Take a look at: and down load what ever you need. You also should read the manual, you can down load if you want to.

Router not hooked up properly??

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Lose internet connection (hughes net) when hooking up router

I would contact your hughes net, that is a satelite provider. That is a total different system, than dsl or cable. Hughes net should be able to walk you through the setup.

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem

I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes and Netgear

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.

NetWave Base G4 router "goes to sleep"

well one thing if your router uses the same IP address as your hughes net then they will interfere with each other. hook your router to your pc and leave the hughes modem out of the equation then go to command prompt on your pc and type in ipconfig that will tell you what ip address your router is using that way you can get into the settings of the router and change whatever you need to change.....I would just set it back to default and make sure the ip address is not because that is the dynamic ip for hughes

Wireless router

The problem is the Linksys wireless router is not properly configured. Try downloading the automatic configuration file which can be accessed from the Linksys site for your specific model wireless router.

Hope this helps you.
