Wbr 1310 does not seem to connect to laptop. erthnet cable is connected from modem to wan port on router and another erthnet cable from port 1 on router to laptop erthnet connection. no...


connect your computer to the router and open internet explorer and in the address bar type, 192.168.0.1 and push enter. it might be 192.168.1.1, don't remember. login and setup your internet connection. if you have cable internet set it to DHCP. if you have DSL you will have to get the settings off the providers web site. you can also try resetting the router. with the power on, press the tiny reset button on the back of the router for about ten seconds. you will see the lights go out and come back on. once the router reboots try it again. Good luck.

We hooked up our router to our modem following the instructions and tried to run the network set up and it says 'not connected to the Internet'.. But the lap top says it is connected. It won't let us get...


These types of issues can be tough to troubleshoot. Let's start with the generic basics and you can let me know if we need to get more specific. .
  1. I'm assuming that you have the laptop connected (wired) to the router and the router wired to the modem. When you're troubleshooting, everything should be wired, not wireless.
  2. Make sure that the cables are connected to the right ports! Not trying to insult you here, but I've done this accidentally myself.
  3. Turn off everything except the modem.
  4. Follow the manufacturers instructions to reset the modem. Most of them have a reset button. Make sure the modem indicates Internet link is up before proceeding.
  5. Now turn on the router. Does it connect to the modem? Check the lights. If the modem is connected, but the router is not, then I would suspect a cable issue, or even possibly a defective router. If the router and modem are connecting, go to the next step.
  6. Start up the laptop and try to connect to the Internet via the WIRE. When troubleshooting, it is important that you test wired before trying wireless.
  7. If that works, try wireless. Make sue you're in the same room as the router when you test this out. In other words, make sure you have good signal.
. So those are the basics on how to isolate the problem to a particular piece of equipment. Once you know where the problem is, then we can get to specific troubleshooting techniques. . Let me know how this works out.

How to quickly install and use your Belkin wireless G router 1. Step 1
Position your Belkin wireless G router.

Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.

2. Step 2
Connect all the devices.

Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

3. Step 3
Turn on your modem, router, and PC.

Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

4. Step 4
Verify lights are on for your devices.

Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.

5. Step 5
Install and configure software.

Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure  other settings.

You need to hook up the AC power supply to your router, hook up your cable modem to your router, there should be a specific port on your router, most likely yellow in color, you'll hook the modem to the router using the supplied ethernet cable, it looks like a big phone cord.

USB Broadband to wireless router through desktop PC


If I get you right you are useing a 3g Internet connection and have a router wich conets the 2 computers together, the problem is that you can't share the internet connection.
Without any information about the operateing systems I can tell you the idea:
First you need to disable DHCP server on the router and use static IP addresses on both PC, the IP address should be something like

PC1:
IP: 192.168.0.2
Network mask:255.255.255.0

PC2:
IP: 192.168.0.3
Network mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.0.2

In this IP configuration above PC1 has the 3g modem connected.
This was the easy part, hard part is to share the internet connection on the network, that's a little different ritual on every operateing system, try to use google to get your specific one.


However there's a much more easier way to solve all your problems if you can't make it work, but it costs money. All you need to buy is a 3G router and that will do the same thing for you what your old router did.
I did a little search for you on Australian Ebay to see what you can get.
But I'm sure you have your own cheapbfavourite source of computer hardware as well.


Hope this will help you sorting out your porblem.

Imre
