3Com 7760 (3CRWE776075US) 802.11a/b/g...

I have been using the internet for about a year on wirless without a router or modem. the signal has been poor. hence the purchase of the 3com 7760.
it does not say on system requirements that i require modem or router and man in shop i also dont need these because the unit is a stand alone and just needs configuring as a wi-fi unit. i have got the unit wired to powersupply where from this point the box flasing indicates wireless is sending and recieving but computer wont pick. it says connected limited access or local only. the 3com is connected from power to ethernet interface!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP

Hi there

I think up to now you've been using someone else's Internet service, by picking up the signal wirelessly. You need your own Internet Service. You now connect your access point in the way the Internet Service Provider guide you. It is a different set up with cable (they provide a modem) or with BT (connection through your phone line).

    I'm sorry but I think your problem is still that your access point is not configured to receive the internet from an Internet Service Provider.... You haven't told me if you have any contract with a service provider. Access points don't work in a stand alone way.... generally you connect the access point to the cable modem or to BT telephone line (using using ASDL filter on the line). Now the access point gets the Internet connection, which it then farms out wirelessly. Here's some useful links: (one is the manual of setting up your own model of access point.

    No, unfortunately, it can't work that way. When you buy a bluetooth dongle, you still pay someone for the service... Hope you can get yourself a good ISP deal... I'll end the call here.

I can not connect wirless router


check the cable of the router it may not be inserted properly. If the problem still exist unplug the router then plug it again to refresh the configuration...then try to connect again. If still not working the possible cause will be the ISP or the internet subscriber provider...signal maybe too low to access the internet

Hi i bought the smc wireless router and i tries to connect it but i couldnt figure out how to connect it because i have a laptop and my internet is connected from my modem to my laptop but i cant seem to...


I'm unsure of the exact part number here but using the model number I checked the manual. This looks like it's just an access point which extends a current network you have. If you only have your laptop, this device and your internet modem it may not give you the wireless connectivity you're looking for. On a normal setup you would plug your modem into a router, plug your laptop into the router and set it up with all your DSL/Cable connection information as well as wireless on/off. You can then unplug from the router and continue life. with this one it's only connecting to an existing setup (another router or another wireless network) and extending it.
If you are looking for a solution to give you a router that connects to your modem and gives you wireless or adding multiple devices on a single connection I would recommend returning this and getting an all-in-one router such as this: http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Routers/Linksys-E1000-Wirelessn-router_stcVVproductId97826160VVcatId551966VVviewprod.htm?icid=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn&src2=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn

I dont know how to get internet on my ds lite


Nintendo? You have to have a WEP key...and if your wireless encryption is not set up with a WEP key, if it has a WPA or a WPA-2 key, it won't work. You have to change the encryption on your wireless (either router or modem, whichever you are using) ...open a browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, put in your password, and change the encryption type to WEP...then put the settings in the DS.

Connecting a wireless router to Tiscalli broadband connection


  1. USB modem is connecting a PC USB port with a DSL phone line: CANNOT be connected to a ROUTER LAN (ethernet NOT USB port).
  2. Wireless ROUTER is NOT a modem and it CANNOT connect the Internet (or WAN) LAN port to any "phone line"
  3. Connect the Router Internet (WAN) port to Modem (you need a LAN MODEM = a modem with a LAN/ETHERNET port)
  4. Be sure your internet is running before strting ROUTER configuration with Router Company CD

Try disconnecting your Xbox from the modem, turn both off, wait 60 seconds.

Reconned the Xbox to the modem, turn the modem on, wait 3 minutes, then turn your Xbox on. That should work.

Repeater


The repeater must be the same brand as the signal it is repeating. Different routers / access points work in slightly different ways and the current generation of wireless repeaters aren't smart enough to work with other brands.

It's kind of like trying to put an engine from a Nissan Altima into a Honda Accord... both make the car move but they aren't the same inside.

NO IP or MAC displayed


Solution: IP of 0.0.0.0 means your DHCP server is not providing configuration settings to your network card. Reset router/access point by pressing the reset button with your finger, the tip of a pen, or a paper clip for at least 30 seconds. Try again! If this solution doesn't work, try turning off computer, turn off router/AP, and DSL/Cable modem. Turn on devices in reverse order. First power on modem, then router/AP, then computer. Connect to router/AP and see if it provides IP. If this solution doesn't work, your DHCP settings are not configured correctly. See router's manufacturer manual or visit their Web site.
