How to connect a rca thomson router to wifi


You are trying to connect to a modem, not a router, the router, a wi-fi version, is what you are connecting to your network.
First, power off all equipment, computer and modem, use the network cable you have connected to your computer from this modem and disconnect from the computer, connect it to the differently colored port on one end of the Belkin, the others have numbers, connect a network cable from one of the numbered ports to the computer.
Now power on the RCA modem, wait until lights are steady, then turn on the new Belkin router, wait until lights are active, just a few moments, then power on your computer, you should now have internet access and be able to locate the manual from the Belkin's website to further your setting up a passphrase or setting up some security on your wi-fi.

My husband was given an old Dell laptop and it has a Lynksys Wireless Adapter card in the side, model WPC54G, and I am unable to connect it to my netgear router?


Does the laptop detect the WiFi of the netgear router ? If not, plug a PC to the router and access the interface to ensure that the SSID is not hidden.

If the WiFi is detected, the problem might be with the security key used. Again, in the interface, note down the security key, in the wireless section of the router. Then, when attempting to connect to the WiFi, enter the security key as noted (Capital letters if any, etc).

You might also try to configure the WiFi connection manually, without using the wizard.

Another issue might be conflicting software. If a software is installed by the manufacturer of the WiFi component, it may conflict with Windows' WiFi manager. You will have to indicate to either Windows or the software to NOT manage network connections, then use the other (i.e. if you tell Windows not to manage wireless networks, you will have to use the manufacturer's software)

*If you want to connect wirelessly, make sure you know the Network Name and the Network Key of the Router or the modem. the only problem is the settings coz other computers can connect

*You can also check if the wireless adapter is properly installed and working properly

* Make sure that the wireless switch is on

*If everything is checked Click on start - Connect To - look for the network name - enter the network key :)

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.

Wifi


You need to purchase a wireless router. The router will have 5 ports on the back, one in and 4 out. The wire that you have going from your modem to your computer will go to the "in" port on the router. The out ports can be used for wired connections, and the wireless antenna will connect to any wireless computers.

Any computer that you want to connect wirelessly to your new router will need to be wireless-ready. For a desktop computer, you will need to buy and install a wireless PCI network card. Most laptops have built-in wireless.

You can buy a wireless router at most "big box" stores, like Best Buy, Office Depot, even WalMart sometimes carries them. A wireless router will cost between $75 and $150.
