Every time my daughter uses her laptop, my pc says


Either unplug the router from power source for 10 seconds and plug back in to reset.
Or you may have an ip address on the pc itself that is conflicting with your daughter's ip address. Dynamic ip address are set so they don't interfere with each other. We use 4 different pc's on one router in our home.
You can change the ip address of your computer by going to start menu, then run, then type ipconfig /release, then type ipconfig /renew and it will give you a new one.

Or you can access the software and settings of the router itself by opening up an internet page, go to address bar and type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter.
It should bring you inside your router so you can check and switch any settings.

I bought this router 2 days ago. I pluged in the phone socket (with micro filter), and into mains,it worked perfectly on my daughters' (each daughter has a laptop - all work)laptops, and one of my desktop...


1) Make sure there is no low-pass filter from the phone line to the wall - it should be directly connected.

2) The laptop issue has nothing to do with the wireless router if it's actually connected. Try pinging the router. Open the command prompt. type ipconfig. Look at the laptop's IP address and the gateway. Try pinging the gateway (ie ping 192.168.1.1). If the ping works, the connection is fine.

3) Can you open a browser window but not connect to a web page? This is due to a connectivity issue. If you can't even open a web page for whatever reason, its a problem with the laptop, not the connection. Hope this helps.

Wireless connectivity


You probably set an access list on your router
connect to Router using a LAN cable and check if you can browse.
Then
Check your access list on router.
Disable it if you cannot add your PC wireless adapter MAC address

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
