I would appreciate it if you could help me with a problem I have in getting online via the wireless feature of my broadband modem. Connectingusing Ethernet cable is not a problem, however.
My wife and I have a company laptops and we often work from home. Becauseof this problem we have to use cable connection every time to get online. We have connected via wireless on other less known wireless modem brands at relatives’houses, office lobby, airports and this leads me to believe that the wirelesssoftware on my company laptop is not the problem. I suspect it is to do withsome configuration that I might have missed (though I followed theinstructions in setting up wireless connectivity andtried to comb through the settings, but to no avail).
The strange thing is that since I bought this modem about a year ago I have managedto get connected about 3 times. However, reconnecting after a successful connectionis terminated has never worked. Most of the time it just refuses to connect.
I’ve tried to keep the wireless “open” without password toconnect, thinking that this would remove some arcane restriction, but it doesn’thelp. I gave up trying for a few months now sulkily resigned to cableconnection until my spouse recently pestered me to somehow resolve it or getanother modem.
Anyway, here is the typical sequence and when it fails.
Preparing to connect
Preparing authentication info
Authenticating(it is at this stage that it usually fails, though I remember it failing at step 2 sometimes).
Step 4 takes a while whichis normal before the it spits back a disappointing message
''Authentication failed - Unable to reach server to complete authenticationrequest.''
If you can please help me with this problem, I would be mostindebted and grateful as it would definitely increase my happiness, get my wifeoff my back and save a few bucks while at it.
If you need more info to troubleshoot, I would be glad tohunt it down in settings and provide.
Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out. Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.
Check for the wireless security settings in your modem.. and check if your airport is connected properly, if it is connected properly, then you would get a valid ipaddress, try resetting the modem and reconfigure your wired and wireless settings, if possible , try to upgrade the latest firmware for your modem and then reconfig it..
start-run-cmd-ipconfig- get the router default gateway- enter those no's in the internet explorer
select the wireless settings and security type wep or wpa . for few routers u can generate the wireless key automatically for others wireless key needed to entered manually
for wep key length bw: 0-9 and A-F if 64 bit 10 digits and 128 its 26 digits
Go into network connections on the laptop and select the Wireless Network. Go into properties and find the TCP/IP settings and ensure that the IP address setting is set to Automatic and the DNS settings also. If you have wireless security set on the router you will have to set that up on the laptop as well.

If you are trying to connect to the routers web interface via wireless, you will not be able to do so without the key. Connect to the router via eternet cable. Then, you will be able to connect to 192.168.2.1
I've had this happen with my Frigidaire stove too. The "locked" light is on.

Open the oven door and locate the light switch. Hold it in - sometimes it makes a noise and resets
If that doesn't work, push the Clean button and the Cancel button simultaneously
and hold for about 30 seconds. The “locked”
light should disappear.If it is
working, you’ll hear a mechanical hum as it resets.
I just had this same problem. Check the canon web site, search for you camera and look for the CCD Image Sensor Advisory. They are aware of this problem and will fix it for free. Just call the customer service number.

I think you are facing pairing problem, solution is here,
First of all please understand ‘what is pairing’
Pairing is the
process of coordinating your mouse's transmitter with your mouse's receiver. It
requires both parts to operate on the same frequencies, usually by using the
same identification code. Pairing takes place to try to eliminate interference.
Some devices automatically pair both devices at start up; others need to be
Step 1.Plug in RF DONGLE into USB port,
Step 2. Put the batteries
in mouse (in right direction, see batteries. Direction symbols in the battery compartment +/- signs) and
place the batteries. Cover,
Now you can see the
red light glowing on the bottom of the mouse, now your mouse is ready to
There is two buttons for pairing the mouse
BUTTON 1 – this on the RF DONGLE, top/up side
BUTTON 2 - this is at the bottom of the wireless mouse,
NOTE- after pressing button-1, one time, your RF DONGLE will
be ON SERCH MODE for 7 seconds,
Step 3, now press BUTTON 1, one time, and move the mouse, if
mouse curser is not moving then press BUTTON 2 one time – now defiantly your
mouse will work,
