Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.

Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi .Then save settings and restart router. Then connect internet cable from service provider to your router's WAN port.If you want wired internet then connect lan cable from computer to router's lan port. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

Trying to set up wireless from desktop (Main ethernet computer) to Laptop @ home. Have cable modem (comcast) connected to desktop (main ethernet plugged computer)Belkin Wireless Router G ethernet is hooked...


Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

Hello, I have a RCA digital broadband model #DHG535-2 modem from comcast, i recently purchased a Linksys wireless-g broadband router model #WRT54G2V1 The problem I am having is connecting from my laptop...


If your trying to connect wirelessly with your laptop make sure that you have the following information of the router;
1. Wireless network name or SSID
2. Wireless security settings; WEP 64/128 bit ot WPA

If your not familiar with the settings then you may need to access the setup page of your wireless router. Hardwire the laptop to the router or if you have a main computer that is already connected with an ethernet cable, open Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox or any web browser you are currently using. On the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 (router's default IP), then you will receive a pop up asking for a username and a password, there is no username and for the password type "admin" then click the Wireless tab on the router and check the basic wireless settings, if your not comportable with the settings then change the following; SSID - use a name that is easy to remember, Channel - 1,6, 11 is ideal, then for the Wireless Security choose WPA Personal and enter a 8 digit WPA Passphrase(pasword), remember to click save settings every tab that yuo go to or else the settings will na take effect. Then check if the laptop will detect the signal of the router and when it prompts you for a password or network key, just enter the 8 digit code that you have configured earlier.

If you have further questions regarding the setup of the router just post a reply and I'll to give you a response if my sched will allow me.

Hope this will atleast provide you with some idea in setting the router properly for your laptop.

Regards,

Can't hook up my router. i hook up the router but cant remember how to set it up to pick up the ip address' I have a Blitzz netwave base g4 wireless router. how do i connect to the internet?


open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.254
it should ask you for your password
the settings are in there.
set it up according to which internet service you have be it dsl cable etc.
there should be some instructions in that page when you get to the setup page.

I have a linksys WRT546 wireless G router someone gave me. I want to connect it to my laptop which is wireless ready and compatible. What type of software or other directions do I need to make it work...


You don't need any extra software.

Connect ethernet cable between PC and router
On back of router may be a IP number like 192.186.1.1
Open internet explorer and type in this number
It may ask you for a password - try no password or 'admin'
If you cannot guess the password becuase it has been set to an unknown word. reset the router using hidden button on back.
Once you have a menu, use the wizard to input your ISP login name and password.
To set up wireless, set an SSID (any name - e.g. fred).
Try to get wireless working between laptop and router.
Once it works, set a WEP key in the router and computer for better security.

I hooked my Belkin-G-Plus-Mimo-39000 to my laptop. Got it working, now I wanted to get it on my Desktop. its installed, but its asking for a NETWORK KEY. What to do from here.


The Network Key is the method for encrypting a transmission on a wireless network. If you originally setup your wireless router you should know this key. Otherwise, contact whomever setup your wireless router and ask what the key may be. You will want to ask whether it is WEP or WPA as well.

To reset, you can clear the key if you can login to the router, otherwise holding the reset button while the router is unplugged will clear the key (and all the other settings so this might be dangerous). To clear it, hold the button for at least ten seconds.

After a clear, you will need to setup the router again. Consult your documentation if you have it. If it is a netgear or linksys, use IP 192.168.1.1 User=Admin password=Administrator, if you have a D-Link, try IP 192.168.0.1 and User=Admin password=Admin. If it is something else, try either of the previous combos. (unless it is a Cisco, then it is 10.0.0.2 User=Administrator password=Cisco).

Hope this helps, even a little.

Hi...unable to connect to ps3 using siemans gigaset se587 wireless router


hi there,
first you need to make sure u can access your wireless router with no problems and the wireless is turned on for your ps-3...then u need to forward some ports...

Turn on PS3 and goto Settings, Network Settings.
Select Internet Connections. If it asks you want to be disconnected select Yes. Select EASY. Select wireless

Select SCAN this will take a few minutes. The PS3 should find your router and already have the SSID# so just type in your WEP key. Select save and then wait a couple of minutes then select test. It should hook up.

If it hooks up with NAT3 then you will have to enable UPnP on you router. type in http://192.168.1.1 on your computers web browser.

username: admin
password: admin

Click on the advanced tab and then on Universal plug n play and then make sure both check boxes are marked.

Then on the PS3 make sure the UPnP is enabled also in the network settings.

This should give you network and NAT2.

please try this link for port forwarding help:-

Reset the router back to factory by using the small pinhole reset switch on the back. After that, you should just be able to plug and play.

Wireless g wrt54g router


First of all, are you connecting with a PC or a Notebook?

If you have the Linksys router, you should replace the MS utility with the Linksys utility it figures your linksys wireless lan card
There are programs you can use to keep track of your router and connections...One such program is called Port Mapper...

http://3d2f.com/programs/34-197-port-mapper-download.shtml

Does your problem happen everday...or every 3 weeks...are you doing anything in particular when you are getting the inability to use the connection?
There is a new Vista patch out there I recommend downloading.
