I am having difficulty linking my main computer to a second one. I have plugged in the EW7318Ug USB adapter and the CD (supplied with the Edimax 8022.11b/g wireless modem router) to the second one but the screen freezes when it comes to choosing the connection. also the picture of the USB adapter does not coincide with the one supplied - there is no aerial connection to this USB adapter

SOURCE: D-Link DIR-625 Wireless Router is Blocking Web Address

Hi jshaw51

HERE's D-Links listing for your router.

HERE's where you can find downloads, etc. for the router. (including an owner's manual) You'll need to choose your router's version then you'll be directed to the appropriate page.

(01) Can you access this web site from any of the other computers on your LAN (when this router is connected)?

(02) Have you ever been able to navigate to this web site from the computer you're referring to while this particular router is connected?

(03) Have you recently installed any other networking equipment or a software firewall on one or more of your LAN computers?

(04) Were you able to ping the LAN computers prior to the onset of this problem?

(05) Can the LAN computers ping your computer? If not, were they able to previously?

(06) Has anything occurred or any changes been made that precipitated or coincided w/ the onset of this problem?

(07) Do you have any other information regarding this issue?

(08) If you like, you can **first** backup your router's configuration and **second** reset it to factory defaults and see if the problem persists.

(09) You can readily restore the backup. This will just be a quick way to determine if the problem is w/ the router configuration (assuming you were able to navigate to the site in question when you 1st got your router.)

Please, post back here w/ answers to these questions along w/ any observations or questions you might have.

We'll continue to work w/ you until the problem is resloved.

Please, hold off on assigning ratings to any of the experts' contributions until you're all set and have no more questions for us. (Once you assign ratings, the problem will be automatically closed and we'll no longer be able to assist you.)

Thank you,
BJ @:)

SOURCE: Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.

i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 4700C Desktop PC, internet issue.

Try and test the computer and modem connection by hooking it up directly by an ethernet cable..

If the internet connection stays solid when cabled up..

Then try either changing or removing the wep or wpa encryption on your wireless network, and seeing if that allows the computer to stay connected.

Also try disabling the firewall on your computer, and also on your modem.

Emachine wifi


Until recently the old computers could only be wired to the Internet.
Wires are not only messy but also limit the placement of your computer in the house.
But now there is a way of connecting your old computers (even Pentium II) to a wireless network, just like any other brand new devise with a built in Wi-Fi.

Remove all the old Internet connections from your computer, including the telephone line and cables.
Before inserting the Wireless USB adapter in to the USB port insert the CD that came with it.
Do not insert the adapter first.


Follow the instructions on the screen after the CD is installed.
Now insert the Wireless USB adapter into any of the available USB ports.
A window will pop up on the screen and will search for the available network connections.
If there are many available (sometimes your neighbor's) select your connection and click connect.

Enter the network key, if required.
The network key can be obtained from your main hub computer that is connected to your wireless router.
Open your network advisor on your hub computer and click on the tab 'Actions' click the link that says 'Add more computers' and follow the instructions on the screen.
At the end it will give you a 16 digit number that you will have to write down.
This is your network key that you will need to enter in the computer that you are adding to the wireless network.

Hello, we have a HP desktop 6736 hard drive - does it have wireless capabilities


Here is a link to the HP Online Support page for your model of PC:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=120&prodSeriesId=46136&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=46136&objectID=bph06111

As you can see from the specs listed there, your model did not include a wireless card from the factory.

Adding one yourself though is quite easy.

You can get an actual wireless card that you plug into an empty slot in your motherboard (inside the case of the computer) which requires a small amount of screwdriver work.

Or you can buy a Wireless USB Adapter which is a small device the size of your thumb which plugs into any USB port on your computer. These are very easy to install, just insert the CD which comes with the unit, run the installer program on it and follow its instructions. Then just plug the adapter into any open USB port on your computer when it tells you to. Thats pretty much it.

The USB adapter is good because you can move it easily from one computer to another if you want without having to open up the computer case.

Anyway good luck and please comment back and rate if this was helpful at all.

I am looking for a wiring diagram for my emachine front power switch


Power Supply Types

There are two basic types of power supplies. There are AT power supplies, which are older and in older computers, and ATX power supplies, which you will find in virtually every new computer you can buy.

There are two fundamental differences between AT and ATX power supplies. First, the switch mechanism is different. AT power supplies use a normal on-off switch, which directly turns the power supply on or off.

ATX power supplies use a momentary switch which does not directly control the power. Instead, the switch signals the motherboard, which performs one of three actions:

  • If the computer is off, the power supply is turned on (which turns the computer on)
  • If the computer is on, the computer goes into power-saving mode (standby)
  • If the switch is held for more than 4 seconds, the power is cut and the computer turns off.
Because of this difference, ATX power supplies are better for projects that require the second power supply to turn on automatically when the computer is turned on.

The second difference is in the motherboard connector: AT power supplies provide two 6-pin connectors (figure 1), which are easy to insert backwards. The ATX connector is a single 20-pin connector that only plugs in one way (figure 2).
2psfig1small.jpg 2psfig2small.jpg
Figures 1 and 2: The difference between AT (left) and ATX (right) motherboard connectors.
Both power supplies provide two types connectors for plugging devices into. These connectors are called Molex connectors, and they come in two sizes (see figure 3 and 4). A power supply will generally have a few of each size.
2psfig3small.jpg 2psfig4small.jpg
Figures 3 and 4: Large (left) and small (right) Molex connectors.
There is no difference between the two sizes other than the size itself. Both sizes provide the same amount of power to whatever device is plugged into it (12V and 5V). The small Molex connectors are generally used only for floppy drives. Large Molex connectors power hard drives, CD/DVD drives, and many fans and lights as well.

Note: You can purchase large and small Y-adapters if you run out of Molex connectors. Be careful when using the Y-adapters however, because if your power supply does not have enough power for all the devices attached (especially true for older, lower-wattage supplies), you can damage it.

How do you install wireless usb adaptor


A wireless USB adapter is a simple device that connects to an open USB port on your computer or laptop, allowing you to connect wirelessly to a network that is within range. They come with different connection speeds, ranges and security protection allowing you to connect to the Internet and use email servers, without complicated setups. Installing USB adapters to a computer is a simple task that anyone can perform. With just a few steps, you can access wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif where there is one.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Research around before purchasing a wireless USB adapter. There are many different networking companies such as Belkin, Netgear and Linksys (see links in Resources). Compare prices and features such as speed in megabytes per second (mbps). Look for wireless USB adapters with a compliance of IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g. These options give you increased security on your network.
  2. Step 2 Plug your purchased USB into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the chosen model, you may have an installation CD. Place your installation CD into the CD-ROM on your computer, and follow the setup instructions to install the wireless USB drivers. Some adapters will install automatically.
  3. Step 3 Locate the wireless icon on the lower right of your computer screen. If there is an "X" marked on it, use the manual that comes with your purchased wireless USB adapter to configure it properly. The wireless icon usually lights up when a wireless connection point is detected.

I dont know how to connect wireless internet from one computer to another


You will need a wireless adapter for the other computer. You can get an external wireless USB adapter to connect to your wireless network. Simply plug it in and install the software. There will be a tutorial on the procedure which should include how to set encryption to keep nearby wireless networks from spying on you.

If you do not have an unused USB port, you can connect a USB hub to add additional ports or install an internal adapter instead. If your computer has an available slot, purchase a wireless internal network adapter, and then open the packaging and read the instructions. Insert the CD that comes with the adapter in your computer, and follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the necessary software.

Computer needs ethernet card for highspeed internet


It depends on your computer and your operating system, but generally if you have USB ports with a Windows-based machine, then you can use a USB ethernet adapter. You plug the adaptor into your USB port, then the ethernet cable into the adapter.

Almost any electronics supply store ie Circuit City, Best Buy, plus Walmart and other big discount stores carry USB Ethernet Adapters. You can also try your local mom 'n' pop computer supply store.

I'm posting a link to a DLink adapter as an example *only.* There are other brand names out there that would probably do just as well.

Hope this helps!
