I have a samsung tv , and im setting up my INTERNET@TV , it ticks off everything but the Gateway Ping ! Please Help


If the Gateway Ping test fails, then your TV is not communicating properly with your Router or Modem.
To resolve this, follow these steps:
  1. Power off your TV, Modem, and Router.
  2. Unplug the power for your Modem and Router.
  3. Make sure the ethernet cable is securely connected to both your TV and your Router or Modem.
  4. Plug in your Modem and turn it on.
  5. Plug in your Router and turn it on.
  6. Make sure your IP Address information entered into the TV during the Network Setup matches the information from your Router or Modem.
  • If you are using an Automatic Setup (most users), skip this step.
  • If you are using a Manual Setup (advanced users), contact your network administrator to determine what the correct IP Address information is.
7. Run the Network Test again.
  • If the Gateway Ping test passes, but another test fails, click here to go back to the list of Network Tests.
  • If all tests pass, the TV is successfully connected to your network.
  • If the Gateway Ping test fails again, see below....
If the Gateway Ping test fails again, there may be a problem with your network setup. To determine if there is a problem with your network, follow these steps:
  1. Power off your TV, Modem, and Router.
  2. Unplug the power for your Modem and Router.
  3. Connect your ethernet cable directly to the TV and Modem.
  4. Plug in your Modem and turn it on.
  5. Power on the TV and run the Network Tests again.
  • If all tests pass successfully, then there is a problem with your Router setup. Contact your network administrator or router manufacturer for information on setting up your network.
  • If all tests do not pass successfully, there may be a problem with the TV. Connect another device (such as a Computer) directly to the modem.
  • If the other device connects to the internet, then the TV will require service. Click the Create online service request button below to have the TV repaired.
  • If the other device does not connect to the internet when directly connected to the modem, then there may be a problem with your modem. Contact your Internet Service Provider for help on troubleshooting your modem.

Gateway not pinging from dwl 3200 ap . AP=192.168.4.250/24 in the same subnet, gateway=192.168.4.1 , gateway assign also on wireless adapter , wireless adapter address also in the same subnet with right...


Remove the cables from the gateway router to the switch to leave only the uplink cable or connection to your telephone socket.
Test connectivity by plugging your laptop or computer directly in to the gateway router and test web access using an Ethernet cable.
Your laptop /computer may need to be rebooted for new ip. If ok reattach the unmanaged switch a retry by attaching the Ethernet cable to one of the ports on the switch. If ok, this limits the problem to the access point.
The main problem is that you have two layer 3 devices connected together by a layer 2 switch.
The solution would be to retain the configuration on the gateway if all ok. Change the access point to a different sub net and SSID to the gateway router.
If you can shut down the broadcasting from the gateway as all WLAN will be done through the access point.
Ensure that DHCP and DNS is switched on, on the gateway router.
All computers should be configured to use the gateway router address as this will allow the gateway to provide routing across the network.

Configuration Utility


Can you ping the router? I mean open a dos shell, type ping -tf 192.168.1.254 - what are the results? Maybe the ping fails, because you need to have your pc set to the same subnet address, to access the router on that IP. Test ping to your own gateway address first.. That will work & show you what to expect from a working ping. You get the gateway address by opening a dos shell & typing ipconfig /all - that shows the current IP address plus the gateway address. Actually, the gatway address might be the same as the router config address, unless you have a NAT function turned on.. Anyway, if you change your IP address to 192.168.1.252 - For example, you will no longer be able to access the internet, but shud be able to enter the configuration web page of the router.. Try the router default settings first. Another thing is that some routers require a direct cable called a 'crossover' cable to connect to the router or you have to go via a hub or a switch, with standard ethernet cables.. This probably looks confusing, but if it does not help, pls post your questions here.. Rgds,

Cannot connect second computer to my networn


I have listed several things here that you can use to find the problem. Sorry this is so long...network problems can be very tedious to find.

First check your version of Windows:
Double click on "My Computer", then click on "View System Information" to make sure you have at least Service Pack 1...or better yet....Service Pack 2.

Next check your Windows XP network settings:
Click on Start....Control Panel....Network Connections...Local Area Connection...Properties(button). Scroll down the list to find Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click on it to highlight it. Now click the properties button below the list. You should now be able to click the small buttons to select both of the "Obtain....automatically" choices for IP address and DNS server. Click on "OK" to close each of the windows.

Now you can test your computer to see if it is "talking" to the router: Click on Start...Run...and type "cmd" in the small box and click "OK". This will open a black command window where you tell the computer what to do. Type the command "ipconfig" and press return (enter). This will list your ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. Make a note of the default gateway address so you can use it for the next test. If the IP address begins with 192.168...then your computer is probably communicating with the router okay. If your IP address is blank or starts with 169...then your network connection to the router may NOT be working.

The final test!!! Use the default gateway address from the last step to do a "ping" test. In the black command window...type "ping" followed by the default gateway address. For example: IF the default gateway happens to be 192.168.1.1....then type the ping command this way: ping 192.168.1.1

If the result is a list of replies from the gateway address...great!! Your network connection is working. If the ping command results in a list of "request timed out", or something else, then your network connection needs more help.

The ultimate test is to try using the Internet with your browser.
If this works, next try typing your gateway address into the brower address bar. It should connect you to the router setup page.(?)

Let me know the results of each of these tests, and I'll be happy to assist you further, if needed.

Belkin router


A couple of items to check -- these will not fix the issue but may isolate the problem.


Turn all machines on before the test and do not turn off until after

On at least one wired computer that is working and maybe all wireless computers I want you to do the following

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt

In the window that opens type

ipconfig /all

press enter then record all of the following for each adapter
  • adapter
  • IP address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Default Gateway
  • one or more DNS addresses
The back in the window enter the following command using the default gateway from the wired connection (your router address)

ping (default gateway)

you will either get 4 timeouts -- the connection fails or 4 messages with elapsed times generally measured in ms or milliseconds.

What you are looking for in the above
Good entries base
x.y.x match each other if subnet mask is right
u should be unique for the network
Wired IP address x.y.z.u not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.u
SubNet Mask ?.?.?.? assuming 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway x.y.z.? not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.1
DNS addresses ?.?.?.? not 0.0.0.0
where at least one is not zero.

Then wireless entries should be
Wired IP address x.y.z.u not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.u
SubNet Mask same as wired
Default Gateway same as wired
DNS addresses same as wired
If these are wrong there is a configuration error either in the router or wireless adapters depending on how you want your network setup.


each connected adapter wired and each wireless should also
successfully ping the default gateway or router address

If the ipconfig is right and the wired config has successful pings, then every wireless adapter that fails has a wireless config issue.

If you are willing to work through this let me know and reply with information in a comment to this issue.
