You need to have an Internet Service Provider. You connect the router to a modem from the cable Service Provider or through the phone line for BT. Then you can connect wired or wirelessly to internet through the router.

Need help connecting wireless router


To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways:-

  1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
  2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:-
In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.

2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.

This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
  • IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
  • Default gateway address (very important)
  • Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
  • Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser..
Hope this will help....Cheers..:)

Unable to connect to DHCP server. getting 169.254 ip Have already tried the following: unplug/ reset reboot router; ipconfig /release /renew; Run MBAM Version 1.43; System restore to a date when connection...


Whew! Awesome troubleshooting work there.

When it's configured for DHCP, go to the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties and hit Advanced to bring up the "Advanced TCP/IP Properties" dialog.
Under the IP Settings tab, the top panel should be "IP addresses" and should have "DHCP Enabled" as the only entry, and the default gateway should be blank.

If both of those are correct, then I have one other question for you:

When you manually set an IP, are you able to use the network? If so, are you able to ping the DHCP server's address?

If so, then my guess would be that the DHCP server has a stale record for your Dell's MAC address.

Cannot connect wireless 802.11b/g router to the internet on my vista home basic using the cd or following instructions in book provided


Rather than using the cd, it may be best to browse to the router's built in web page to configure. Your documentation should give you the default IP address, username, and password.

If connecting your router to a cable modem, turn off the router, turn off the cable modem for 30 secs. (unplug if necessary). turn the cable modem back on, turn the router back on, verify your pc is connected to the router. After 5-30 secs, depending on your devices, DHCP should assign IP addresses to each device and connect to the internet.

Belkin router when connected will send wireless signal but will not allow mother computer to gain access to internet. tried bridging on dsl, and pinging. when i called belkin the @#$%^& told me it...


Assuming your router is set correctly to your modem or the password and username are set correctly in a modem/router, make sure DHCP is enabled in the router, this gives each pc an ip address automatically.

Go to open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure never dial a connection is ticked or greyed out. close IE

go to network connections, right click on your wireless adapter>properties>highlight TCP/IP line>properties and make sure that obtain an ip address automatically is ticked.

Open up internet explorer again and click refresh a few times, it will detect the proxy server then should connect, if not then the router configuration is wrong.

Replaced Linksys Wireless-B 2.4GHz 807.11b Router and Wireless B 2.4GHz 802.11b Wireless-B Notebook Adapter with Linksys-N Ultra Range Plus Wireless-N Gigabit Router, and Wireless N Ultra Range plus Dual...


Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Trying to hook up lap top to wireless internet. Comcast tech says there is problem with IP# 169 which preceeds other numbers and needs to be removed for hookup. How can I accomplish this? Model #3150H


Usually you will have an IP address starting with 169 if the adapter cannot get an ip address from anywhere, it is an autmoatic IP address.

What operating system (Windows XP or 2000 or Vista) are you using?
