    There are two parts to the issue.



    One: Does the printer have an IP address?



    Two: Can your computer see it?

How to turn on bluetooth radio


Which operating system ???...
There are a variety of ways to connect to the Internet or a home/business network using your Hewlett-Packard (HP) desktop computer---via a modem, Ethernet cable and even wirelessly.
A wireless connection works by sending a signal from your modem or router to your HP desktop's built-in wireless radio.
The radio receives and processes the signal so you can access the Internet or a home or business network.
In order for the signal to be received by your HP desktop, you must enable the wireless radio within the computer's configuration.

Click "Start," "Control Panel."
Double-click on the "HP Wireless Assistant" icon.
The HP Wireless Assistant dialog box will open.
Click the "Turn On" button next to the words "Wireless LAN."
Click "Close" to activate the wireless radio.

Delete wireless program on emachine


When the router was removed, did you restart the cable modem (power cycle it) with the computer plugged in. This will refresh the IP address on the modem and probably fix the issue.

Reboot the computer.

Change out the ethernet cable between the computer and modem, they can go bad unexpectedly.

You also might check device manager to see if the ethernet port has any issues.

Finally, just because I have seen it happen, make sure you are using an ethernet (larger plug) and not a phone line (small plug) to connect.

If none of this helps, please add your operating system (windows 7, vista, xp, ect), so I can tell you were to look for other issues.

My modem from att works fine now. However, when I connected the wireless G router belkin it gives an error msg: webpage cannot be display. plese advise


Do the following trick. Enable your Wi-Fi connection AND connect your laptop with ethernet cable at the router (both of them active). After the connection has been established, hit start - run - type cmd. At the new black window type ipconfig and hit enter. You will get the results for both ethernet and wireless connections. Mark with your mouse the details report and hit enter (for copying the results). Come back to this post and paste these results. I want to take a closer view of what is missing from your connections especially the Wi-Fi one. Also post me back what is your operating system (windows XP, Vista, Windows 7).

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

What do I need to be set up for wifi? I ahve windows XP. I've never had wifi, we have a cable modem.


A wireless card or device for the computer and a wireless router. You maybe able to connect, and most likely will, a second router to the cable modem to take your signal wireless. The computer will need a card or USB device connected to it so it can use the WiFi network your going to create. Once you have the device and router in place follow the Setup directions for creating a home network in Windows. There is actually a wizard in the network center to assist you with this in windows.

Dell Dimension 4700 - Driver Reset


1st you need to download or install all the drivers for your Dell computer. Try to use the drivers/utilities disks first. Once you can get online, go to Dell.com and look up your model 4700 and download all the missing drivers. Your Linksys Router is not a modem. The Linksys has the modem connected to it for wireless connections.

A recent mac laptop with Tiger & bootcamp/win XP will connect to the internet via a Netgear DG834G adsl modem with ethernet cable in tiger & XP but only in xp with wireless. Any advice? JL


If I understand you correctly you have an Intel based MAC, with the boot-camp boot manager, so you can choose to boot either from the native MAC OS or from Windows XP.

The system works fine from the MAC OS, but the (wired) ethernet does not work from XP.

1) When you boot into XP mode, the XP operating system is in
charge and the MAC OS is dormant.

2) Check the XP device manager to see if the ethernet NIC
(network device) is properly installed and if the device
drivers are functioning.

From Windows XP:

Right click My Computer ==> Properties => Hardware ==>
==> Device Manager ==> Network Adapters =>
==> Your network controller

Right click on your network controller ==> properties

Check the device status !!!

2) If the device is NOT working properly, you may need to
download and install a device driver for this card.

3) If the device IS working properly, you may need to run
the NETWORK SETUP WIZARD from the control panel:

START ==> Control Panel ==> Network Setup Wizard ==>
==> Next.

4) Assuming you are connecting to DSL with a login password,
use the: "My computer connect to the internet through a
modem" option.

If your DSL is always on, or if you use a local router to
connect to the DSL modem (the router does the work)

Then you choose the: "My computer connects to the
internet through another computer or a residential gateway"
option.

Can get to the 192.168.0.1 page but can not connect to the internet, i keep getting either low conectivity. or cabel in plugged. i have the di-524 ops is xp


Sounds like your DSL/Cable modem is not talking properly to your new wireless router. Depending on your modem, my first guess and thing to check is that your DSL/Cable modem is in bridge mode to connect to your new wireless router.
