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 (Hughes.net, 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.



    Thanks,

    Ekse

    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.

Go inside printer menu and assign it a static IP address, address that is not in use by any of your other devices. use 255.255.255.0 for subnet and your router ip as gateway

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.

Dell 968w printer - won't connect to my Mac. is there a driver I can download to fix the problem? Dell tech support states this printer won't support a Mac OS.


For basic printing, use the PC as a server:

I don't have personal experience, but I'm guessing that for photo printing you'll need a new printer.

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 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.

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 192.168.0.1 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.
