Make sure that your TCP/IP properties are set to "Obtain an IP address automatically". If you still cannot connect after you change that, and after waiting for a couple of minutes, then open a command prompt and type "IPCONFIG". Make a note of the address at "Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :" That's the address you need to go to to access the modem's settings..You'll need an ID and password. These would be in the modem's manual.
---to find tcp/ip properties---
It depends from PC to PC, but, try this:
Start (Bottom left of your screen)
Settings
Network Connections
Local Area Connection
Properties
Internet Protocol TCP/IP
Properties

That's how it is on my PC.

Help me with my belkin router


In order to set it up, you need to connect it to your isp's modem via ethernet to the uplink port (the one port that is by itself). After that, connect an ethernet cord to your pc or mac- you should be able to get online since the router defaults to picking up IP by DHCP. If you wish to configure it further, log into it by opening a browser and going to http://192.168.2.1
From there you can setup the wifi, setup port forwarding, etc.

Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network


Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

http://www.behardware.com/articles/614-2/wi-fi-mimo.html

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Maybe this will help?

How to add Wirless & Ethernet connections?


The only difference in using a wireless hub is that it will go between your router and your computer. The advantage is you can take your computer anywhere within range and connect using your computers wireless card (if you have one).
You won't need any more equipment or memory and most wireless hubs come with instructions. If they didn't give them to you, just Google the manufacturer and model of the hub and you should be able to find them easily.
After you've set up the wireless hub (which you can still connect to via your ethernet cable). your computer should notify you of wireless networks available. You have a utility to set this up within the control panel.
Let me know if this helps

My laptop has vista installed via usb from virgin cable modem.what must i do to install a belkin wireless g mimo router using ethernet connection?


Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?

Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"

If that is the actual question, here is the answer:

1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer.
2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable.
3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable.
4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.

(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)

Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.

(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)

Unable to connect to internet


Try going to command prompt and type ipconfig /release
Then type ipconfig /renew after the IP is released. If you like, I could remotely connect and troubleshoot it for you.

Do a ipconfig at the command prompt and see if you are being assigned a ip from the modem. If not try rebooting the modem with the ethernet connected to modem and computer. then do ipconfig again to see if not getting internet ip, your card or modem eternet is bad. put in a new one and try again.

Can't connect to http://192.168.0.1 or .100 How do I get connected so I can configure the security settings on my D-Link wireless router - WBR-1310?


Okay, first what is the operating system you are using? Examples:

Windows 98
Windows 2000
Windows ME
Windows XP
Windows Vista
OS X (Apple)
etc

The basics are as follows.
1)Make sure that the computer you are using to access the D-Link is connected to it via an ethernet cable.
2)Power on both the computer and the D-Link device
3)After everything is booted up all the way, open up a browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc).
4)In the address bar at the top type in the IP address of the router which by default is 192.168.0.1.
5)This should bring you to a log in page asking for a username and password. The username is Admin and the password area you leave blank.

Here is a link to D-Link support about this:
