The thing you don't say, is that you already have a high speed network connection by either DSL or cable. You already have a modem/router that you plug into for your internet. This one is an extra one you would like to use as an access point for your home wireless network.

You will need to set it up as a router not a gateway in the configuration. You should turn off the DHCP for the wireless router and just let it perform pass thru to the primary router to assign IP addresses. Set up the wireless router to have an IP address in the same subnet as the primary. If primary is 192.168.1.1 set the wireless routers IP to be 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.1.3, etc. Then set up the configuration for the wireless settings and test the wireless connections with a laptop or PC. Plug the Wan connector on the wireless router to one of the ports on the primary router and you should be good to go.

Why won't my hp photosmart c4200 print


Hi there, here are a few tips to help:

For products with keypads on the control panel:
1. Without turning the unit off, unplug the power cord from the back of the product.
2. Press and hold "# and 6? keys.
3. While holding those keys plug the power cord back in.
4. Wait until the screen goes blank before you release those keys.
5. Follow on printer screen instructions.

For Box-type models:
1. Unplug the power cord from the printer.
2. Wait for 30 seconds.
3. Plug the power cable back in the printer and turn it on.

After trying all these and you still cannot print, you can try uninstalling and
re-installing the drivers.

Hope these helps.

A friend gave me a WRT54G2 without firmware


Are you able to get to the gui of the router?
If you are able to get inside the routers Gui then that would be a good sign.
Do the following:
1. Go to this site http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54G2/download and select the version. I would suggest you to get the latest.
2. Save it to your desktop. Then extract the file.
3. launch into the router gui
4. Click on Administration then select Upgrade firmware
5. Click on the Browse button and then select desktop then chose the extracted file.
6. Click on the Upgrade button and just follow the on-screen instructions. Normally you just have to select Next.

A friend gave me his router to instal to my


You should do a factory reset using the reset button on the back using a paperclip.

Then you should insert the cd that your friend should also have given you (he didnt Hmm) if not you open an internet explorer page while hooked up (by wire) to the router and type into the address bar 192.168.1.1 on most netgear


The username is admin
and the password is 1234

From there you can use the setting your ISP gives you and also set wireless up.

Wireless Router Causes XP PRO to Crash. I just purchase a Linksys WRT110 wireless router and installed it using the EasyLink setup cd. The install went OK but Windows XP PRO immediately crashed and...


my apologies it was a typo...
the command is eventvwr.msc

what you need to do now is install a program called radarsync (google it) AND BE VERY CAREFUL TO UNCHECK THE OPTIONS OF ALL THE TOOLBARS IT WILL ASK YOU TO INSTALL THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

ITS A FREEWARE THATS WHY ALL THE TOOLBARS but trust me you dont want them.
let the tool scan for updates for your computer install the update you find for the wireless card and reboot
you shouldnt be getting the problem anymore
please rate if his fixes your issue
thanks

No Installation CD


No it's not needed, the main things you need to know is the IP address that the router is set to and it's login details which hopefully your friend can give you. (default IP: 192.168.1.1, default login and password: admin and admin)

After that, as long as your HS Internet modem has an ethernet port you would connect that to the Linksys and your PC's to the routers LAN ports. You can then also login to the router and setup the wireless part if you have any wireless devices to use with it.

NETGEAR wgr614 instalation


They don't seem to offer a download for the CD, but it's not really necessary.
Go to http://www.netgear.com/ and download the manual, which gives very clear instructions. This might take a little longer, but you'll have a much better understanding of routers when you're finished.
FWIW, most routers will work without any set up at all.
To enable encryption, you'll need to review the instructions.
