I have a Motorola Router modelwr850gp. I recently transferred my internet line to a new computer and am able to recieve internet direct line from the wireless router but other computers in the house are unable to connect to the internet using the wireless option. I have tried reboot sequences as well as loading up the wireless router software on the new computer that recieves the direct line. The computers using the wireless option show a good connection but I cannot pull up the internet. Help. Thanks.

You modem needs to be powered on, linked to your cable or phone connection, and then linked to your router with an Ethernet cord. You also need a base computer (connected to the router with Ethernet as well) to adjust your router settings, like password and router name, and assure that you are communicating with the Internet.
Install your wireless adapter software to your laptop or computer that will be using the Internet wirelessly.You will be prompted at some point during the installation to plug in the adapter. (If prompted, restart your computer.)
Plug the adapter into your computer or laptop. Some adapters come as USB-compatible (Universal Serial Bus) plug-and-play devices, and others are PCMIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) cards that go into a special wide slot in laptops.
Go to your computer control panel and click on Network Connections when the software download is complete (if the control panel does not load automatically). Your new adapter should be now be listed. Select the icon and look at the description to make sure that it is connected. If not, right-click the adapter icon and click Enable.
Double-click the adapter to search for a wireless connection. Refresh the list of connections available until you find the name of your router. Enter any passwords that you set up for your wireless router and then connect to the Internet.
No it will not work you cannot connect a router to another router wirelessly and it will most likely not be detecting each other, routers are built to transmit internet signals from modems if you have a router and a computer but you do not have your own internet connection that will not work conencting to another router you will need USB Wifi Card transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your friends wireless internet.
but if your friend only has a modem you can lend him your router and get a USB wifi transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your router that is conencted to your friends modem this will work but will not work if you and you friend will both have a router creating a network.
Make sure you have all your cables connected correctly.
Do not have power to either the modem or router.
Plug in you modem and watch the lights go to work. Wait for them to settle down. Now plug in your router, again watching the lights. It should work now.
You can download Linksys' LELA program to monitor the network. Shows green lines to your computers, etc. when working and red lines when not. It will also give your status and make suggestions if you loose your connection.
You need to properly configure the wireless settings of your computer. Make sure to disable the firewall on your computer like windows firewall or any other firewall. Now make sure that you have entered the correct wireless security key on your wireless settings. Go to control panel > network connections > right click wireless network connections > properties. Go to Wireless Networks tab and remove all the Preferred Networks there. Go to Add and proceed to adding manually your wireless settings.
i doubt it will work. most times the cable companies give you a modem/router all in one box. the problem is there in no inbound connection to recieve an internet signal other than the cable cord connection.
with the dsl modem you will need a seperate router. they cost around $40-50 on avg
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.
The 54 mbps refers to the stream rate from the router to the wireless reciever, the 100-110 kbps you refer to is the connection speed to the internet.
These are two different things, if you were transfering files from one pc to another it would transfer at a max speed of 54 mbps.
If you connect via a cable it would be 100 mbps.
Your internet speed depends on your isp server your downloads will be less than 256kbps, with even less upload speed.
