Installed dlink router but wireless connection keeps going offand keeps saying acquiring network address.


Hi there, this issue happens if your computer cannot acquired IP address from the router. please test your router first if other computers can connect to it. If Yes, then theres something wrong with your computer wireless adapter. in order to resolved this issue is try to reisntall the drivers of your wireless adapter. it is usually located at the driver disk that came with the system. If other computer cant connect also to the router then there is something wrong with your router. sometimes alll you need to do there is restore the router from original factory settings by pressing the reset key. if same issue happened after reset then you have to call your routers manufacturer for possible replacement. thanks!

I can not connect to my netgear wgr614v6 with my hp netbook. I can connect with my other laptop and the netbook has been connected before. It keeps saying "acquiring Address"


If you're trying to connect wirelessly, and it says "acquiring address" and never connects, it's most likely because your wireless network has an encryption key enabled, and the encryption key on your laptop/netbook doesn't match. You should disconnect from your home wireless network, and then try to re-connect to it. Verify that you're using the correct wireless key to connect. If that still doesn't work, you should reset your router to factory defaults so that there's no wireless key required to connect - and then try again. If you want to put the wireless key back, you can run the CD or connect to the router using the web interface and configure it again.

Acquiring network address


Sometimes you have to change your computer's settings or the routers settings to know what type of encryption its looking for otherwise it will just stay on acquiring.

My computer won't wirelessly connect to my computer. It keeps saying 'Acquiring network address'.


That means you didn't enter the correct network key when connecting to your wireless network. If your wireless network is not password enabled, you need to change the wireless channel of your router by accessing the router's setup page.

Cannot connet my laptop to he wireless router


Hi gups1, I will try and help you make a start.

It would help to have the name and model number of your router if possible (eg Netgear, Linksys?)

First, look at the router itself. Is there a label on the base of it? Sometimes this tells you the address you need to get at your wireless settings. It will look something like http://192.168.0.1 If you have a manual, you should find this info in there.
You need to type this address into a web browser, as if you were going to look at a web page (but note, there is no 'www' in the address).

If you succeed in doing this, a box pops up requesting your username and password. If you don't know this, again look at the base of the router or in the manual.

If you succeed in logging in to your router, you will see a menu where you can configure or change your settings. Come back if you don't get this far, or if you need more help at this point.

Acquiring Address Problem


you will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

Router won't log into it's IP address online


It appears to me that you have everything plugged into the desktop PC. This is not the way that it should be done. Plug the cable modem into the wireless router via the Internet/WAN port. Plug your desktop PC into one of the ports numbered 1-4. Now connect to the router via the wireless connection for the router and you should be able to now connect to the internet with your laptop.
If it still does not work, power down everything in this order: Laptop, Desktop, Router, Cable Modem. Bring everthing up in the reverse order (Cable Modem, Router, Desktop, Laptop) waiting for each device to stablize before moving to the next.
Once you get everything working, turn on your wireless security (WPA not WEP) asap to keep your computers and surfing safe, and to keep intruders off your network.

Cannot connet to internet


Device communication issue! This sometimes occurs fro many reasons mainly FIREWALLS~ In order to keep this from happeninig you should probably setup a static address on your laptop or if your network has a SSID, it needs to be manually set into your adapter because it is not picking up your network. This often happens when you use your laptop in or on other networks. Easy fix, but need answers to these questions!

Laptop can not connect to router


Hi,

If you care to try, manually enter IP settings in your laptop as follows:
IP Address - 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway - 192.168.1.1
DNS - whatever your ISP is using

In your Internet Explorer >
Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN settings button, check "Automatically detect settings", OK, Advance tab, check Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
