I've got a belkin also , on the icon that says limited or no connectivity( two little computers?) left click once then when the window for local area network status comes up , click on properties , local area network properties window comes up ,scroll down to internet protocol tcp/ip , high light it by clicking left on it once, then click properties and make sure it is selected as optain ip address automaticaly, then click ok, then on the local area network properties make sure all the boxes are checked and install them , then restart your computer , the main computer , the modem and unplug the router untill the main computer has restarted, then turn on the modem and plug the router back in.
if that don't work you will have to assign the computer the address
see if that works, if not let me know

    if you have to assign the address assign 192.168.2.4 because the main computer will have 192.168.2.2, and the other laptop you said that connected will have 192.168.2.3

  • jason Oct 22, 2008

    in the belkin settings , if you want security click on security and type in a pass phrase and it will give you 4 keys 1 for each computer that connects to the router

You'll just need to enter the network key on the wireless configuration of your laptop. Try these steps.

* on the bottom right hand, right-click on the wireless network icon and click on View Available Wireless Network
* you should see there the name of the signal coming form your belkin router
* select your belkin signal then press connect. If it ask for a network key type in your wireless network key, normally its WEP or WPA key, then confirm it on the 2nd box then press connect. That should fix it.

* If you don't know your wireless network key, go to your desktop and open Internet Explorer.
* On the address bar type http://192.168.2.1
* It will prompt you for username and password. Type admin on username and there's no password.
* when you get to the router's setup page, go to Advance wireless and you can see there your wireless network key. Just punch it on your laptop. That should take care of it.

*If it still doesn't work, you can try to change the channel on the router.
*On the setup page of the router, go to Wireless tab and change the channel to 11, then Apply or Save the changes.
*You will then need to reboot the router for 10 seconds, then restart your laptop. That should fix it.

Sir did you try to use UTP instead of wireless connection. see if the same happenings. by using newtwork setup wizard to configure the settings of modem router to the laptop using UTP cable. let me know what happen.

as far as i know your connection has been lost by a ISP provider. better to call your internet connection provider about this and i think that your connection is ok. it just happen that your last connection was connected on an internet and now your connection was lost. am i right? i experience that myself, after i contact my isp or my internet provider the connection has been ok. hope that helps!

thank you for using fixa

Hello,

Solutions to the problem are varied, however most of the solutions found on the web just mask the problem by simply guiding the user through turning off this notification. Now this solution may work great for systems that are showing a false positive error, but what if the system genuinely has lost its local area connection or the connection is unstable, what then?

1) Your Network or DSL router may have bad or missing information. Powercycle your router and/or rebuild the configuration in your router.

2) Double-check your cabling to the computer. Make sure you have the correct type of cabling, straight-through CAT 5 or possibly a crossover cable and try another cable or test the cable to make sure its working properly.

3) Check your network card to make sure its configured correctly and working properly. Many times setting the network card to 10Mbps/Full Duplex will solve this issue. To do this, open Control Panel, System, Device Manager. Go to the properties of the Network card, click on the Advanced tab and find the Link Speed and Duplex section. Change it from Auto Detect to 10Mbps/Full Duplex.

4) Check and test your firewall. Your firewall, especially if its a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Norton Firewall or something else could be blocking the connection. Disable your firewall and test the connection. You may have to resolve the problem by even uninstalling and reinstalling the firewall.

5) Check your IP address assignments and workgroup settings in the computer for accuracy. Statically assign IPs to the computers in your network.

6) Reset your TCP/IP stack by downloading and running WinsockXPFix.exe a Visual Basic program designed to fix corrupted TCP/IP issues, host file problems and a variety of other connectivity issues.

7) Also this issue is relate to SP2 update (in that case you should run the Microsoft patch (KB884020) for it.)


Have a great day!
Pablo :-)

Check on the internet connection to your router from the modem first..that message means that you are connected to the router, but not to the internet..

you may need to restart the modem, by pulling the power and then re inserting that plug..what kind of modem and internet service do you have?

Im sorry but you will never get 54 on your card toughs are theoretical maximum speeds and I have never seen a system actually achieve them the actual speeds received by wireless devices are actually much lower and 11 is a normal speed wile running over wireless. Im sure this isnt what you wanted to here and I am sorry but it pretty much comes down to manufactures lieing by telling you it goes to speeds that can never be reached.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,

The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.

There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000

Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Netgear WPN824 wireless router


there is no reason why you shouldnt connect at 108 mpbs, so there are only a coulple of things you can try, the first is to change the channel that your router transmits on within the router settings, although this should automatically be done by the router when it comes up against any interference. Secondly try the adapter in a different usb port as USB 2.0 should be used and the port may not be recognised as a high speed port. Double check the router connection transmition speeds is set at 108 mbps; as it would also be able to transmit at a lower speed of 54 mbps so as to be backward compatable with 54 mbps adapters

Wpnt121 and wpn824v2


the rangemax may be 108mbps transfer speed, but are your wireless network adapters able to run at 108mbps?, as most earlier ones will only run at 54 mpbs, especially notebook wireless adapters. You will only gain on 108mbps transfer speed when file transfering or streaming to each pc, it will not speed up your internet connection, although you probably already are aware of that.
