Do not use a cross over cable, use a normal cat5 patch cable connected from one of the lan ports on the other router to the wan port of this router.
Configure this router to obtain ip address automatically (like it would be configured to connect to a cable ISP)
Turn off DHCP on this device.
That should do it. If it does not, let me know because some router want a static route configured.
If you want 2 seperate networks with internet access, leave the dhcp on but change the internal address so that it is different from the other router.
ie: if the other router is 192.168.0.1, this one can be 192.168.x.1 (where x is anything but 0)

Hi Support team, I use Modem Motorola SB100 with Linksys WAP54G, and DLink Wireless G DWA USB Adapter to connect to Linksys WAP from my PCDesktop. Connection from the PC to Linksys is ok but can't...


peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

First RESET your router to defaults settings.Press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router.
Then connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with default link http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Then configure your router again set WAN settings as your interent service provider.
Enable DHCP if you want iip automatic from router.
CLcik on wireless and enable it .Configure your router as WEP or WAP then add code it is your password to connect internet.
Then save and restart router and computer.

Panasonic cf-50 problems to connect wireless wpa personal


If the wireless card is an old model it possibly won't support WAP encryption. The wireless router most likely supports both WEP and WAP encryption.
WEP is not as secure as WAP so use the highest bit encryption that is available to you.

Have you configured the Belkin wireless router?
You need to configure the Belkin using a 10baseT network cable first before you configure the wireless card.

To make your wireless router secure you need to use your browser and type in the Belkin IP configuration address.
Then you need to change the Admin password, change SSID and turn off SSID broadcast, setup the encryption (use WAP or WAP2 if your wireless card supports WAP) and for added protection use MAC address filtering.

Belkin wireless security


plug a laptop straight into the router with a cable. then open an internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1
type in the username and password. the default will be admin for username and password for password. then close the browser and unplug the cable. it might detect wireless internet after a few seconds. if it doesn't, it is possible that you have a PC set up as the internet gateway for the laptops or something, so when you introduce encryption the laptops can't get access. in which case you should go to your wireless icon on the laptop and click that and open the connection list. double click on the wap secured connection and try to connect. it should ask for a username and password, which you have secured the wireless encryption with. enter that and it should connect to the gateway.
dunno if this helps, good luck

The CD is actually just a guide in configuring your router. You can still configure/use it even without the setup CD. If you need to reinstall/reconfigure your router, please provide the model number of the router and your Internet service provider (cable or DSL) so I can help you.

Cannot connect my lap tp to the internet via my d link router on my desk top


Please indicate which is your issue.

Is your issue with the router's administrative password to used to configure the router?

Please confirm your router's manufacturer and model number.

IF not go to Wireless Configuration

If the router needs to be reset (because of an unknown password) do you know the proper settings to reconfigure the router? If not or even if unsure please provide your Internet Service Provider's name so we can get accurate instructions before proceeding any further on this password issue.

Wireless Configuration

Is your issue with the passphrase/password for a wireless adapter to access a secured wireless network using either WEP or WAP encryption?

Do you have another wireless computer that works? -- you may be able to find the passphrase in the configuration of that machine's wireless adapter avoiding the need to have the administrators password for the router for the time being.
