I'm trying to connect my 3com wireless router (model# 3CRWER200-75) and did the 3com Wizard through 192.168.1.1 website. But I can't get the Sympatico on the PC to start up thereby not able to open the Internet Explorer. What settings do I need to enter in the Wizard to have the router and the Sympatico modem (model Speedstream 4200) to mate up? Thanks in advance!!

1. you will have to designate the laptop or allow it to connect by entering it into the 3com router. 2. try connecting to the router via ethernet cord (that is connecting with a physical straight through cord) that came with the router. If connected with this then you will have to go into the router via the IP set 192.168..0.1 depending on the router ip for loging in. 2. Go to the "wireless setup" and enter your MAC address for the laptop in the permissions list in the router. Instructions on how to do this is at the manufacturers site. Step by step. 3. Do the following step if instructions not found. 1.Log into router 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP adresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
Unless, you can try another computer to connect or there is a tiny (and I mean sometimes pinhole) reset button to push, it may have seen its last day. It has happenned to me and I picked up a little 35 dollar Belkin that worked great.
You have to configure the WDS on the 3comm, configuring it to the MAC ADRESS of the BT router (if it is wireless), if not connect it by ethernet and set the 3comm as WDS allowing the other 3 more u want to add as acepted MAC ADRESS for access points.
What model router is it? here are some general directions:
go to internet explorer, type in 192.168.1.1 and hit enter... this should bring up a login box...
generally the username = admin or administrator and the password = password... (if that doesnt work look on the bottom of the router or in the manual for info)
once your logged into the router proceed to the Wireless or security menu - you want to enter a WEP or WPA passcode of your choice (WRITE DOWN THIS PASSWORD) you will have to enter this password on any computer you want to connect via wifi
Make sure to save your settings
Whats the exact model # of the Speedtouch?
Well if your Modem doesn't have a WAN for a network cable (RJ-45) if all it has is a usb for connecting to a PC only I hope you have WindowsXP or Vista. Well what you can do is use your PC as a gateway like... What you would need to do is Plug the speedtouch into your PC with the usb... Plug the WAN from your router into your PC's network jack. Now you can go and do the Wireless/Network setup wizard and tell it your using a PC to connect other PC's to the net.
