My comp.says network error,thomson tg585v8,i cant access my comp.


Check your network settings
Start, control panel, networking and sharing center. Click on your connection, properties. Click on TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6 and click on properties. Make sure the settings say to obtain IP address automatically and also for DNS, then reboot the modem and computer.

You did not specify if you are using a router.

How to obtain the ip address


make sure your device is set to DHCP, this is a network setting within your device. This will make it get the IP address from the router or network it is trying to negotiate with. If that network requires a Security key, often referred to as a WEP key, then you will have to enter that before the device can get an IP address.

Hoe can i connect my ipone to wiifi on my belkin router


Wi-Fi settings determine whether iPhone uses local Wi-Fi networks to connect to the Internet.
Turn Wi-Fi on: Choose Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on.
Join a Wi-Fi network: Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPhone detects networks in range, then select a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join (networks that require a password appear with a lock icon).
Once you join a Wi-Fi network manually, iPhone automatically joins it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, iPhone joins the one last used. When iPhone is joined to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon in the status bar at the top of the screen shows signal strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the signal. Set iPhone to ask if you want to join a new network: Choose Wi-Fi and turn "Ask to Join Networks" on or off. Join a closed Wi-Fi network: To join a Wi-Fi network that isn't shown in the list of scanned networks, choose Wi-Fi > Other, then enter the network name. If the network requires a password, tap Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password. You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network. Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. You can type it manually by login onto the Belkin's network page using the browser and by copying the static and dynamic IP address.

How do i find the network key? trying to get my niece's comp to work in my house with my modem


the network key is in the routers set-up utility

Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. In the URL address field, enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.
You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords (aka network key, wep key, passphrase).

Connecting modem to WAN port then any lan port to computer provides no connection. straight from modem to comp is ok.


Make sure comp lan and wan are both activated, Make sure the ethernet cable from modem is plugged into the input slot and NOT 1,2,3,or 4

Then after all is connected, unplug main modem for 10 seconds, plug back in, then do the same with wireless router. 5 minutes later, you should be good to go.

You can access the software of you router by opening up an internet page, and type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. It should bring you right straight to the router's firmware/software where you can change any settings if desired.

If it asks for username and password, the default is usually admin for both. (see owners manual to be exact)

Limited or no connectivity. No assign network Add. to comp.


Have you checked the cable?
Try this with a new cable installed:
Go to Start menu > Run > type "cmd" (without the quotes) and hit Enter or click OK.
In the black DOS-window type "ipconfig/release" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Type "ipconfig/renew" (without the quotes)
and press Enter.
When the DOS windows displays an IP-number (e.g 192.168.1.2), close the DOS-window and try to connect.
Alternatively right click the network-connection icon down on the far right beside the clock and choose "Repair"
Good luck!
;)

Xoom x6 adsl modem problem


possible issue with freequent connection loss when going over 2 comp on a network are possible issues of collisions on the network meaning that sometimes more often then not, it is possible for two comp to end up recieving same ip address fr modem.

 

solution: first find out ip range supplied by the router in modem. then statically assign ip address to each comp

 

this is done by going into tcp/ip properties of either nic or wireless card and set to use following ex

NOTE: IP RANGE USUALLY LAST SET OF NUMBERS IN IP ADDRESSING TIPPICAL RANGE IS BETWEEN 10 TO 99

ip address: 192.168.2.12 (static ip address for computer)

subnetmask: 255.255.255.254 (generic subnetmask)

default gateway: 192.168.2.1 (ip address of router)
