Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

1 Answer

We have WiFi set up at our house from the main desktop, we have 2 laptops that have built in wireless cards. We put in another desktop in the guest room for our guests to use but instead of buying a usb wireless or card for it can I use a BELKIN G Plus MIMO router I have at the house as a bridge to connect it?

Hey there joselko,
i'm chris from sw scotland. i have the same setup - 2 wireless laptops and a pc physically connected to the router with an ethernet cable.
you just plug the ethernet cable into the 'out' hole in the back of the router and into the ethernet port in the back of the PC. then start your PC. go to control panel, then internet settings, then hit the 'connection' tab, then click the radio button that says 'never dial a connection'.
you may have to reboot, but not necessarily.
both the laptops should continue to work wirelessly and the PC should now connect directly to the internet using the router.
if you have any problems, feel free to call me on 01776840273, and ask for chris, i'll be glad to help. you can also skype me on christophergrams or using the skype number 01414165437.
good luck.
chris

    oh sorry i read your question wrong. just attach a cable from one of the ports on the back on the back of your intenet hub and put the other end into red port in the back of your belkin. then a cable from the green port in the back of the belkin into your computer.
    if, after you have gone to control panel and clicked 'never dial a connection', and you still don't get an internet connection, it's possible that you might need the driver disk for the belkin router.

    http://web.belkin.com/support/download/d...

    that's the driver list for the router. as you can see, it only goes up to xp, so if you're using vista, you might have to contact belkin support for advice.

Want to put lock on guest


Linksys E series routers can broadcast 2 wireless networks. First one is the main wireless network which is secured wireless network.
The second network is a guest network which will always show you unsecured.
It will never show you secured and you can not make it secured.
However it has a web based security.
Anyone can connect to the guest network but will not be able to access Internet without Guest access password.
In other words there is a security.
You can disable guest access also.

Can i take the wifi from my dell optiplex 160l and put it in my acer computer?


The answer to your question will depend on what expansion slots your new Acer desktop computer has and whether one of these will match the specific 'half mini PCI-e' card which is used in the Dell Optiplex 160L per http://www.dell.com/uk/business/p/optiplex-160/pd which states it is an Optional Dell Wireless 1397 802.11BG Half Mini-PCIe card.
You will also need to obtain the device drivers for this wireless card in order to use it in the Acer.
Given that the Dell wireless card is only an 11/54MB standard card (802.11BG) I would recommend buying a newer 802.11N wireless card which will be sold with the necessary device driver and software applications needed, will give higher speed connectivity access and be much simpler to install and manage.

How to install my router for wireless internet on my laptop.


1. Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.

2. Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.

3. Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.

4. Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.

5. Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.

6. Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.

7. Click on "Properties."

8. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.

9. Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.

10. Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."

11. Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.

12. Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Thanks.
Have great day.

Connecting more than 1 desktop.


This is what a router does. The wire that now goes from the computer to the modem goes to the router into the port marked wan. Then you plug your computers into the ports marked lan. On a typical router you will be able to connect 4 computers. They will all be able to get out to the internet and will be able to see and share files from each other. You should be able to find a router for $20-$40. Then you will want to figure out where to run the wires so you know if you need to buy cables and what length they need to be.

If you want to spend a bit more money you can go wireless. This will mean buyng a wireless router instead of a wired. (the wireless does wifi and still has the 4 wired ports) and then you will need a wifi network card for each computer. Most laptops have wifi built in so no need to buy anything for them. Wifi is nice as you don't have cables to worry about or trip over and you can move around the house. If you have a laptop you can wander around the yard. Very nice to go out and watch movies etc in the back yard some days.

So to get a wired setup you wil need a wired router, and two cables. For wireless you need a wireless router and wifi cards for each device if not equipped. The wired setup is faster and cheaper but more of a fixed location setup. The wifi seup costs a bit more, is about 1/2 to 2/3 the speed but gives you a bit of freedom to change or move.

I would go wireless. Try to connect to the net using a laptop (wireless) at the guest house. If the signal strength is decent you should be fine with getting a wireless NIC for the PC in the guest house.

If the signal strength is bad, either buy a 802.11N router (make sure it's N and not draft N, these should be available now or within a few weeks (nov 09), or buy another access point and connect it via ethernet to the main access point. you only want one modem and one gateway generally speaking.

Intermittent wi-fi


Most laptops you can just flip them over and open an access panel. Usually just 2 or 3 screws are all that stand in your way. Some laptops like 1000 Model HP's require you to remove the entire plastic panel on the bottom. You will recognize the wireless card inside by two distinct cables that attach to two corners of it. It is usually 1.5 x 1.5 inches big and will have one cable hooked to main and one to auxillary. These cards are available for purchase online if you google internal wireless cards notebook. There may be other types out there but i run into this one almost every time!

There are two ways of getting on line outside your home. 1- you can use a wireless card, built in if yopu're machine has the capability or a universal card. The universal cards are sold at Walmart or Bestbuy and come in bus port or usb port styles. If you use a built in or universal card, you will need to find a location that has free wifi, ie... Macdonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, shopping malls, coffee shops, hotel/motel, etc... all of these offer free wifi. The upside is that it's free, the downside is you have to find a place with free wifi. 2- you can go through your cellular provider, ie... AT&T, Cingular, Sprint, US Cellular, whoever you have and get an airtime wireless card. The cards are around $150, then you will have a monthly charge of around $60. This will allow you to connect anywhere, anytime, as long as you have a signal.
