    Hello
    There could be many reasons why you can't connect. Here are some troubleshooting tips to try:

    1) Can you connect to the internet when you make a wired (ethernet) connection, rather than a wireless connection?

    If you can, this at least narrows down the problem to the wireless connection.



    2) Vista offering you an 'unknown problem' diagnosis might (might) point to a problem with the wireless network adapter.

    You can check the status of your wireless network adapter by going to Start, and type devmgmt.msc into the box you see, to pull up the Device Manager. Go to 'Network Adapters' - click any '+' you see.

    Are there any unusual symbols by the wireless adapter, such as a yellow exclamation mark, or a red X?




    3) If you want to check security settings on the router, here's how to start:

    i) Login to your router, by opening a web browser, and typing http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Enter username: admin and password: password at the prompt (or whatever password you have set). You should then see the router configuration screen (user interface)

    ii) If you plan to make changes to the settings, use a wired (ethernet) connection to the router.

    You might want to check the following: under 'Advanced', click Wireless settings: under 'Wireless Card Access List' click the 'Setup Access List' button. If 'Turn Access Control On' is checked, uncheck it. Close the screen and go back to the laptop: try to connect wirelessly again.

    Please check back if anything is not clear or doesn't work, but I hope this will help you/us start to diagnose the problem. Good luck..

You will have to go into the routers setting and set it to allow wireless connections. it may just be set to send out the SSID but not allowed connection. or the saved key has changed from the rougher defalt key

How do I ad another computer to my router


Since you are adding one, it means you do have a computer that is already working with this router. It means you router is been configured already. So if you need to add another one, its very simple.

For wired connection:
-just get an Ethernet cable long enough to reach your computer then connect the ends on the available Ethernet port located on the back of the router and the other end should be connected on the Ethernet port on your computer.

For wireless connection:
Look for a wireless icon on the bottom part of your screen near the clock. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 just click it and will show you the wireless networks that are available. For Windows XP, right click the icon and select "View available wirleess networks". As soon as you see the list of wireless networks, select yours and click "Connect". If your network is secure type the security key that been setup on the wireless router, if not secured it should connect immediately.

I have a new toshiba laptop that I can't get to connect w/o wires to my lynksys...how do I get my laptop to be wireless??


In order for the wireless computer to connect to the router wirelessly, the router and the computer's wireless settings should be the same. Before trying to connect your wireless adapter to a Linksys wireless router, please know the following: SSID or Network Name, Wireless Security and/or Network Key.


Connecting to Wireless Networks Using XP's Wireless Zero Configuration


To connect to the wireless network using Windows Vista, click here.

Follow these steps to connect to your wireless network using XP's Wireless Zero Configuration.


Step 1: Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon at the bottom-right of the screen and select View Available Wireless Networks.



NOTE: If Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) is disabled or other wireless network monitor is running, the Wireless Network Connection will not appear at the bottom-right corner. To enable WZC on the computer, contact Microsoft or consult the computer manufacturer.


Step 2:

Select your wireless network

Connect an Ethernet cable to one of the 'LAN' ports on the router and to the network-port on your computer.

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER.

You should get output like:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 124.268.336.448
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.0

Start Internet Explorer.
Type: http://123.456.789.0
to connect to the web-server "inside" the router.

Run the "wireless network setup wizard" to configure the router
with an SSID and a password.

Save and reboot the router.

Disconnect the Ethernet cable.

Your computer should report "Wireless Networks are available".
Choose your network, and enter the password for the network.

I'm trying to connect vista laptop to d link dsl-604t router wireless which has a mac os 10.5 with password using it


On Vista, when you "view available networks", is the SSID (that you configured into the router) listed as an available network?

If so, click to select that SSID, and click CONNECT.

Hi,

You may want to double-check if the wireless adapter on your laptop is enabled. If it is enabled, try to view the available wireless networks on your wireless connection and select the name of your wireless network. You may also want to check your wireless router if there is a wireless security enabled. It is important that you know the wireless settings on your wireless router to make sure that the wireless adapater settings on your laptop match the settings on the wireless router.

Acer with Windows Vista does not connect to Internet


You're laptop needs to have a profile for the router. Go to Network and Sharing Center, Manage Wireless Networks. Please remove all the listed networks there. Now click on Add, then Add a Network in Range of this Computer. Select the wireless name of your router and connect. If it asks for a network key, please type your wireless security key then connect. That should do it.
