You may wish to login to the web gui in the router (from a connected PC) and verify that you have MAC Filtering turned off (or add your MAC if you want to leave it on).

If your wireless capabilites is turned on, on your laptop, right click the monitor with the red cross on it in your system tray. Select connect to network. Choose your wireless adapter network and enter your password for the wireless router and click on connect.

I hope this helps

Laptop sees the wireless network and connects, but then indicates that there is little or no connectivity. Help


this mostly happens when the router has been configured to block certain devices. take a look at the wifi config, look for IP-filtering or MAC filtering. you should see tables containing letters and numbers. make sure this table is empty

Wr850g cant connect to xbox live


I posted a solution under a different problem, but similar. Basically you will need to pick a static IP for your xbox. Then set that IP address in the router web config >> routing >> DMZ IP address setting. Restart both router and xbox and bingo. Your xbox is now directly connected to your cable modem without the router problems preventing connectivity.

Settings on my laptop 4 d network dont match requirement d ntwork


Make sure they match.

Check your Network Connection Properties especially your TCP/IP properties. If set for automatic configuration set it to DHCP and make sure on your properties that theres no static IP address and that "Obtain TCP/IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" is also check.

Make sure Authentication type is also the same.

How do I set a new address in the 850 motorola router


First, you ned to login into your router (check the manuals for this, Netgear has this printed behind the router near Serial no. etc).
Enable DHCP settings, allocate IP-address range say 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.5 (enough for 5 computers connecting via this router). Next, configure each computer to accept new IP-address from router by enabling DHCP.
The settings on a Windows XP Professional Desktop:
Need administrator access to your desktop, right-click on Network icon, Internet Protocol TCP/IP Properties, click on Properties button, then select Advanced properties, you can set DHCP from here.

Wireless router won't connect to my laptop


1. check your network adapter TCP/IP settings if its set into "Obtain as IP address Automatically".
2. if the settings is set as Automatic and your not getting IP address then select "Use the following IP Address"
3. use IP address followed to your router address like if192.168.0.1 in router type 192.168.0.2 or192.168.0.3 just check the next address IP in your network.
4. after typing subnet IP will automatically set
5. type the router IP address as your default gateway
6. click OK to save your new settings


Hope this will help

Right off the top I can imagine that the laptop is smirking because it has a battery to get it through the power outage. What may be happening is that the desktop loses it's ip address or the router defaults back to DHCP rather than PPPoE which is where it belongs for DSL. 3 ways to fix this:
1) Reset the power on the DSL modem and wait a minute or two.
2) Go to Start>Run>type 'cmd', Enter, type 'ipconfig /release' then 'ipconfig /renew' then 'ipconfig /all' to see all of the ip addresses for each adaptor and gateway.
3) Go to Start>Run type 'http://192.168.10.1' and a logon window appears. User name is 'motorola', Password is 'admin'. A webpage appears showing you are now talking to your router. In the LAN tab choose PPPoE for automatic DSL control settings. You can also temporarily select DHCP to use the 'Release' and 'Renew' buttons here which is the same as the ipconfig commands you did at the Command Prompt in step 2 but reselect PPPoE before you leave the router control panel. You can also select STATIC if you already know your ip addresses but for DSL you normally use PPPoE. If you haven't done this before then peruse all of the other controls that you can access here. (If you are a gamer this is where you set up your DMZ and so on.
Have a nice day, Steve Medley

I am trying to connect to xbox live through my WR850G router


It sounds to me like you need to open ports 88 through 3074 instead of just opening the two. So this way you open Port 88 to 3074. I can further assist you if you have the router info.
