Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

We have a desktop PC with a belkin router and my compaq presario which is about 2 years old connected to it and all works fine. i secured the network well, and it is hidden with WEP encryption. i bought my mum a compaq cq70~116 laptop yesterday for her birthday and can not get the internet to work. I have got it to connect to the network but it wont work. it says that there is limited connectivity on the IPv4 and IPv6, and the trouble shooter thingy said i need to ´plug a cable into the network adapter local area connections'. im not great at computers but this doesnt make much sense to me! I have tried rebooting everything, nothing seems to work. please help!

    If you have broadcast turned off as you stated your network is secure, You need to manually enter the SSID on the laptop as well as the WEP key. Otherwise you may be connecting to a neighbor's unsecured network.

Just bought a new Compaq wireless laptop keeps asking me for a security key. Is this my provider or The Belkin router It's old and not been used for a few years model F5D9230-4


It is the router that you need to configure, to define:

* SSID (a "name")

* an encryption-level (use: WPA)

* a password/security-key

for your wireless network.

Then, you can connect to your network.

Wireless router - establish wired connection with desktop PC


You are right, cable connection is more secure. The steps are:
1.) Connect the PC to the router with a crossover cable.
2.) Once connected, try to see if you are in the network. If you are, then you are ready to connect to the net.

Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network


Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

http://www.behardware.com/articles/614-2/wi-fi-mimo.html

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Belkin Modem Router not connecting to desktop


The wireless security on your router might be enabled.

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type "192.168.2.1". Then press the "Enter" key.

2. It will prompt for a password to access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. By default the password is blank.

3. Go to Security, then Wireless.
- Check the wireless security settings, this should match the settings on your wireless computer.

4. On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Belkin Wireless Modem Router problem


well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.
