Is this a DSL router supplied to you by your internet service provider? If so, call them and let them replace it with a newer (working) router. They want your business and will help. If you paid for it and have to deal with it post the make and model number of the router, the operating system on your computer and we'll go from there.

D-Link router switches off internet connection when tv/DVD remote is used


Hi, Your question is not so clear. For giving the proper solution I need to know something. As per my knowledge a fiber optic cable doesn't connect a router directly without a Media Converter. Secondly please tell me the model number and the brand name of your television. Third do you configure your internet connection on your television through IP address??

Can't get router to connect to Dell Dimension 2400 desktop


Try turning OFF DHCP from services. This may fix your problem. Look for "DHCP Client", double click on it (or right click and choose properties), STOP the service, then set it's startup type to 'manual'. That'll kill it. See DHCP is what "Gives out/assigns addresses" and on the ONLY PC, it is the First one... 192.168.0.1... Both PC's will be assigning themselves as that, and that will cause a conflict. As the Router now does the DHCP work. Of course ensure you DO have DHCP set on router.

Acquiring IP address and won't connect to wireless


You possibly have your router password protected or have changed the password recently. If you have done either, you will need access the router by the router IP address, then go in and make sure the password you have on the router is the same as the password you have no the computer.

Secondly, make sure that the router is broadcasting correctly. Hard wire(hook the computer directly to the router with a ethernet cable) to see if there is an internet connection flowing thru the router.

Third, ensure that the ethernet cord from your modem to your router is a good cord. Be sure to plug the ethernet cord from your modem directly into your computer to ensure there is a good connection as well.

Reconnect all (modem, router, and computer)

Fourth, power down router, modem, and computer together. Power up the modem first and let all the lights come on. This will renew the connection and refresh the IP address. Once the modem is up, then power up the router til all the lights are powered on the router. Lastly, power up the computer to the desktop and attempt to launch a web browser (internet explorer, mozilla, safari, etc.).

If nothing at this point works, you will have to consult your router manufacturer or a local computer repair shop. Be sure that the technicians working on your issue is certified.

Hi,

You may want to double-check if the wireless adapter on your laptop is enabled. If it is enabled, try to view the available wireless networks on your wireless connection and select the name of your wireless network. You may also want to check your wireless router if there is a wireless security enabled. It is important that you know the wireless settings on your wireless router to make sure that the wireless adapater settings on your laptop match the settings on the wireless router.

Wireless connection problem whenever I switch on my laptop


you need to isolate first which of the devices is giving you the problem.
- check first the connection from your modem by connecting a computer directly to it. check if you'll loose the connection from the modem. if so, you need to check with your internet provider if they're having maintenance from time to time since that could be the reason why the router is not providing the connection to your laptop automatically and you need to restart it to sync with the modem first.
- if you have a proper/stable connection directly from the modem, next thing to check is the connection from the router. check if your wired computers are getting the same problem. if so, you may need to check for loose/faulty cables or you may need to upgrade the firmware of your router. if the wired computers are not getting the same problem, it's time to check the wireless settings of the router.
* access the router's page by typing http://192.168.0.1 on your web browser's address bar (default username is "admin" while the default password is "password")
* go to the wireless settings page and check if the wireless name (ssid) is not the default. if it's still using the default ssid, customized it to prevent interference from other dlink network near your area
- if you have check the modem and the router, it's now time to check the wireless adapter, make sure that it is connected to your own network. if you are using it's software utility, make sure that you have created a profile using the same ssid as of your router. you can also update the driver of your wireless card if you have checked the above mentioned and you're still having the same problem
you can also try to use another wireless computer and check if it'll experience the same problem to properly isolate the if it's the router or the wireless adapter problem. you can also try to install the wireless card to another computer and check if you'll have a stable conection. if so, there could be a software (like a firewall or an antivirus software) that is giving you the problem.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern.

ciao!

Connecting my dynamode 6004 W G1 wireless router to modem


Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way. First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer. Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light). Next, plug in and turn on your router. You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.

WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS


Hi,

I would suggest that you get a Wireless Router something like a LinkSys WRT54G. There other brands and models available. With such a WiFi router, you can still connect your old PC using the LAN/Ethernet and connect your new laptop without any wires. Most (but not all) would require that you run first the CD before installing the router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
