Youll need to call your dsl carrier and tell them you need to be reconnected to their modem.otherwise you cant just reconnect after non usage if its been awhile. call the company that you get dsl through and they can set you back up again

Wireless connection goes of then will not connect


Hi
I get that you was connect to the internet by wireless connection .
so in you connect with access point connected directly to dsl modem so try to restart the access point and try to connect again ...and reset the wireless in your device... may be it works .

I think this problem occur cause access point or DHCP server cant give your device new IP address..
so you must clean the DHCP leased addresses by restart the access point or enter to server and do that from DHCP .

else you can try to assign static ip address has the same network id with router ..
for example : if router ip is 192.168.1.1 so you must assign ip address like :
192.168.1.x while x number between 2 and 254
hope that helps you

I HAAAAAVE A AT@T WESTELL MODEN BUT MY COMPUTER IS NOT WIRELESS BUT I HAVE WIFI ON MY ACCOUNT. I AM THINKING ABOUT GETTING A SYLVANIA NETBOOK WHICH IS WIRELESS. WILL IT WORK IN MY HOME . THANK YOU


Let me clear up a little confusion. You don't have wi-fi on your account, you have Internet access. Wi-fi is not something that you subscribe to or purchase separately. Wi-fi (wireless) access is provided by a router that allows the Internet connection you pay for to be shared by several computers. The typical router has both wired connections (usually 4 of them) for computers that don't have wireless capability, and acts as the access point for your wireless network.

Your modem is the device that connects you to the Internet through your service provider (ISP). Most ISPs are supplying a combination modem/router for their customers since so many people want wireless access in their homes. If you have one of these, you actually have wireless capability already. But your modem might be an older type, supplying a single wired connection for one computer only. You didn't give the model number of your Westell modem so I can't tell you what you have, but you can tell by looking at it.

A single-connection DSL modem will have only two ports. One is the connection to the DSL phone line, and is a standard-size phone jack labeled "DSL". The other is the network cable connection to your computer, usually labeled "COMPUTER", "LAN" (short for Local Area Network), or "ETHERNET" which is the type of cable used. If this describes your modem, you will need to provide your own wireless router to make your new wireless netbook work.

On the other hand, a combination modem/router will have the DSL connection jack and 4 connectors for computers. It may also have an antenna for the wireless function, but some newer models have internal antennas. If you have one of these, you already have wi-fi capability. You will probably need to set up your network so that your netbook can use it.

There is plenty of information available about how to install a wireless router if you don't have one already. In fact, almost every one now comes with an installation CD that will guide you through all the steps. They aren't expensive and are for sale almost everywhere that sells electronics (office places, Radio Shack, retailers like Wal-Mart, etc.). If you already have the combination device, you can call your ISP customer service for help in setting up your network, or find the information on their website.

So yes, the Sylvania netbook will work in your home, although you may need to do a little work first. But it's really pretty simple, and you'll have that computer online without wires in no time.

Access the gui of your router. Change the WEP key there then click on save and restart your router. If all the lights are okay. Try to connect to your wireless using the new WEP key you changed.

Please excuse my very limited knowledge of wireless connectivity! I currently have Juno DSL, with a 2wire modem (2071 - no wifi) and I want to add wifi capabilities to my house. I assume that I need a...


As I understand it, you currently have a DSL line with a computer plugged into a modem that is attached to the DSL. Now, you want to use wireless throughout your home.

My choice of router manufacturer is Linksys though there are other manufacturers of wireless technology.

What ever manufacturer you choose, get the device. Hook it up according to the instructions you will find inside the device box.

It will go something like this: Attach a cat 5 cable from the "uplink" port on your router to the DSL modem. Plug your wired computer into any of the 4 other ports. Everything is off, right? Cycle the modem - wait for the lights to settle down. Plug in your new wireless, wait for the lights to settle. Turn on your computer. Turn on your wireless. Wou may have to connect using the windows wizard.

A tool I use for network management is Network Magic, a Cisco product. Cisco also owns LlinkSys.

Get the program, free download and eval period. After the eval period you may purchase or continue to use the product with some features disabled.

I have a siemens 4200 adsl modem i had a net gear modem before and that was not working with wireless internet and now this modem wont let me connect wireless either only with the ethernet cabel. help!


Hello Mate,
the siemens speedstream 4200 is a DSL modem/Router which doesn't have wireless connection. So even tough if you have a computer equiped with a wireless adapter, you will not be able to connect wirelessly because the siemens 4200 doesn't act as wireless access point.
You may need next time to check first if the modem/router to buy support wireless (wifi g or n) and make sure that it's not only a modem, it should be also a router.
i attached here some references for you from the top brands:
1. Linksys DSL modem/Router with wireless N: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/MEA/en/products/WAG120N
2. Linksys DSL modem/Router with Wireless G: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/ANZ/en/products/WAG54G
You can find other brands as Dlink, Netgear ...

Lost connectivity to network printer when switched to ATT u-Verse


Is the printer connected via wireless? When I recently connected up a new wireless printer to my UVerse network, the printer manual said that establishing the first connection works better via an Ethernet cable directly to the Uverse router. After the printer is set up once, then I could remove the ethernet cable and connect to the printer via wireless from all my computers.
For all wireless PCs that were previously connected via wireless to dsl, you need to create a new network connection for each one, then enter the key that is listed on the side of your Uverse router when prompted. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to establish the connection.
I am amazed that ATT was so unhelpful on these issues. I was one of their first Uverse customers in Texas, and several times over the last years, techs would visit my house to solve a problem or hook something up, explaining to me as he went. That their helpful attitude is deteriorating is a real shame.
