    hi,

    thanks a lot for the reply......but still didnt find the solution....



    In internet protocol TCP/Ip....my IP address and DNS details are set to detect automatically.....and my router settings are as follows too:


    Router Settings : Use this section to configure the internal network settings of your router. The IP Address that is configured here is the IP Address that you use to access the Web-based management interface. If you change the IP Address here, you may need to adjust your PC's network settings to access the network again.





    Router IP Address :


    Default Subnet Mask :


    Local Domain Name :


    Enable DNS Relay :


    DHCP Server Settings : Use this section to configure the built-in DHCP Server to assign IP addresses to the computers on your network.






    Enable DHCP Server :



    DHCP IP Address Range :
    to (addresses within the LAN subnet)


    DHCP Lease Time :
    (minutes)




    my DCHP server is enabled but still i am facing a problem.....with the internet while browsing simultaneously......So if you do have an alternate solution do let me know

Hi, at first you have to get into both PC's network cards settings > properties of network adapters, select Internet protocol TCP/IP and click on properties - make sure the adapter is set to get the IP address and DNS details automatically.Then get into the routers admin website in web browser (I think 192.168.0.1) while connected to router. Find the option DHCP and select it to enable. Save the settings and try to reconnect with both laptops again and it should work.

Reset the TCP/IP stack in Windows to possible repair the Internet connection if it is corrupted.

Go to Start, Run and type in CMD.

Go to C:/ (probably by typing in "cd C:/" at the prompt - deleting the quote marks)

Type the following commands:

netsh int ip reset reset.log

netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot your pc.
repeat on the other machine.

How can I add a brother 145 printer so all laptops in the house can use it wireless


This model printer has only an USB printer connection and normally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless network there are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a shared printer. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LAN cable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printer on the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on at all times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer.
OTHER METHOD
Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed on all the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from the USB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will be the IP address of the print server.

  • In the General tab, highlight the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item, and clickProperties.
  • In the General tab, click Use the following IP address, and enter: - IP address. The static IP address you want to assign to this computer (try 192.168.1.110 to start). - Subnet mask. Subnet mask used by your router (try 255.255.255.0 to start). - Default gateway. IP address of your router's default gateway (try 192.168.1.1 to start).
  • In Use the following DNS server addresses, enter all the IP addressses for the DNS servers your router uses (or you can try your router's address, probably 192.168.1.1).
  • Click OK.

May laptop won't connect to internet, my laptop is in good condition. i already reset my dlink wireless router but still don't connect to internet. The connectivity is ok. my laptop detects the router but...


Hi,

Is the laptop detecting any wireless networks in the area? if yes then it means that the wireless card is ok if not make sure that the wireless is turned on on your laptop.

I the laptop detects wireless networks in the are then we should check the settings on your system or something that could be interfering with the wireless connection on your system,
what are the error/s when trying to connect wirelessly?

Tis can be multiple things regarding wireless, if the error is windows was unable to conenct to wireless evice then try recreating the wireless network on your laptop in network and sharing center if you have win7 on the laptop, network conenctions if you have XP.

I the laptop connects to the router but does not get internet acces then better check you routers network key if it is correct in your laptops settings, also check your IP address if it is correct if you IP starts with 169... then have a bad IP address on your laptop, go to the command prompt type ipconfig /release, then press enter, then type ipconfig /renew then enter to renew your ip address, hoping that the IP address changes it should begin with 192...

Can 3 computers (1 desktop and 2 laptops) share the same IP address?


No. Each device connected to a network must have a unique address so that data can be properly routed. If you want to share an Internet connection among several computers, you need a router. The router provides a single IP address connection to your service provider on one side. Then each computer connected to the router, wired or wireless, gets its own internal IP address from the router. As data comes over the Internet, the router takes care of getting it to the proper computer.

The router connects computers together . You are using a windows 7 p.c and connecting it to an internet connection via a usb verizon um175 aircard.
I think you need to share the internet connection with the rest of the network and may need to feed the ethernet cable into the feed port of the router. I have not done this before but logically the windows 7 computer would have to act as a gateway to the internet.

https://www.ibvpn.com/billing/knowledgebase/53/Internet-Connection-Sharing-on-Windows-7.html

Note the default gateway is going to have to be the windows 7 ip address on the other computers
You may need to set the ip address on windows 7 to a static address and then change the dhcp server settings default gateway and also increase the first address to not include the windows 7 ip address or the routers ip address in the lease range for shcp.

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655


The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.

Dlink di-524 connect to RV042


Hi.

You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.

Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of 192.168.1.1, and the DLINK IP uses 192.168.0.1. Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.

Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.

This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.

Wireless router


Yes, you can use wireless router with the modem. I guess the actiontech DSl router that you have is also Wireless one. If so, you can use just the DSL router for wireless connection. If you really want to use Dlink router with it, Connect the ( WAN port ) of the Dlink router to the ( LAN Port ) of the Action tech modem [ modem(LAN)-->Dlink(WAN) ]. Once you do this connection, better to do power cycle ( unplug the pwr to the dlink first, then, disconnect the pwr to action tech - wait 1min and plug the pwr to modem, wait for DSL light to be solid , then put the pwr back to dlink ). Make sure DSL light on the modem solid, internet light & WLAN light on the link glowing.
- Make Hardwire connection between the computer to Dlink and check the ip address on the computer whether it acquires the ip address from Dlink and then check the internet connection on the computer, it has to work. if computer not getting ip from dlink, try restarting computer.
- If hardwire connection on the dlink works fine and check the wireless connection.

For wireless configuration or assistance you may check this link:
