Question about Trendware TRENDnet TEW-421PC 54Mbps PCMCIA Wireless Network Card 802.11g (NETWTEW421PC)

1 Answer

Browser not connecting

The problem I am having is that my laptop is telling me I am connected to my router (Trendnet tew-432brp) but when I open my browser it will not connect and says I am not connected. I have called costomer support and tier 1 was no help everything we tried did not work and I have still not recieved a call back over 5 days later from a tier 2 tech. I have tried with help from customer support on changing ip address, and other numbers that I do not know what they are and still nothing. Its wiered cause it will automatically connect to network and start downloading updates for my anti-virus software. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Browser not connecting

Ok, this is more than likely your isp is at fault, i had the same thing and my emails and updates worked but was unable to browse. But first make sure that your pc does not have any corrupt cookies, go to the sie below and download ccleaner, it's free and has no spyware, when you install it go to the left side of the menu, click on cleaner, then click analyse at the bottom. when it has done a sweep click delete files. Try connecting again. Next go to your routers settings and look for what is called DHCP and make sure this is enabled to give your pc an automatic ip address. Then go to your wireless card in control panel>network connections and right click on the wireless cards icon an go to properties. Highlight on the TCP/IP line and click properties, then check that 'Obtain ip address automatically' is ticked. Click ok then try again to get on the net.

Trendnet router will not give a wireless signal, Wi-fi on laptop is enabled, direct connection from modem to laptop will give internet connection. Tryed unplugging everything, resetting it. Nothing I know...

1.Log into router. Using either to in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using or to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop/desktop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

I lost my trendnet router tew 231brp password

You can reset the router by pressing the reset button with a paperclip. The button should be by the antenna. You have to press it an hold it for about 15-20 seconds to reload the router to the factory defaults. Then you can login with the default password and set up the wireless again.

the factory default password for the router login should be admin both for username and for password.

My computer does not have wireless networks available! There is a connection for plug in internet but no wirless setup at all. How can i make my computer have wireless available again?

Make sure that Wireless Lan or Wireless Router are installed and connected properly. This procedure are delicate if you don't exactly use this device properly. Resetting is not necessary just find out where this two devices are functioning normally.
Good luck!

Router failed

I assume that all lights are on as normal on the router.

Check the System light.

This indicator blinks green means the Internet Broadband Router is
working successful. Otherwise, this indicator always on or off means the function of the Internet Broadband Router is in a fail state.

If the System light is either always on or off go to step 3 below, otherwise start at step 1.

1. power down router and wait 30 seconds and power up.

Try connecting via then if NO do step 2.

2. disable any firewall programs on the PC

Try connecting via then if NO do step 3.

3. do a factory reset of the router. on the rear panel of the router there should be a small hole with a small button maarked RESET. if you press this in for 10 seconds it should RESET router to FACTORY settings.

Try connecting via and if NO then the router firmware is possibly corrupt or there is some other hardware fault.
