Question about Linksys 2.4 GHz 802.11b Wireless - B PCI Adapter (WMP11) (LINKSYSWMP11)

1 Answer

Adding a computer to wireless at home

HELP! I have a Dell desktop in my home office. I have cable broadband internet (Time Warner). I also have another computer in my office hard wired to the cable. Many moons ago I had a Linksys router installed so I could get on line (wireless) with our laptops......works fine. So, I just set up an older Dell with MS 2000 OS, put in a 2.4 GHz PCI Adapter in it (that I brought home from the office) and I cannot figure out how to add the wireless connection to that computer. I have followed everything in the instruction but I know I am missing something important as I cannot find the wireless network? Can anyone help walke me through this. Mucha appreciated.

1) Go to the computer that is connected directly to the Linksys router.

2) Open up Internet Explorer (or your favorite browser).

3) In the address bar, where it says "http://www...." clear out everything in there and type in the following numbers:

192.168.1.1

Press "enter" on your keyboard. This will open up a dialog box asking for your username and password. Try leaving the username blank, and type in "admin" for the password.

Now you're in a web page that controls your router. Look for the Wireless section, and make sure wireless is enabled. Check for wireless security as well, because you may need to enter a long number in your computer once it finds the router.

If you still need more help, feel free to ask.

I have my internet Broadband connection in my office .And I want to share this broadband connection network into my home through WiFi . But the problem is that my home is almost 1 mile away from my office...


No. Wifi has a distance of 120 feet indoors and 300 feet outdoors in a perfect environment.

Even if you were able to install wireless repeaters for the wifi you will experience many networking issues.

If you wish to share your internet you may want to look into a mobile hotspot. You can take that device anywhere where the service provider is covering.

I cannot get internet on my laptop from an open access point with Time Warner internet


Hello,

Though you are getting strong signals from the router, the router itself may not be connected to the Internet. The owner may leave the router on but power off the modem. It is possible that they may use the router for thier own private network with no connection to the Internet. When you connect to the router, check your network and sharing center to see if you see an X marked on the connection between the router and the Internet. If you do, the router is not connected to the modem.

Good Luck

I am using time warner cable high speed internet. and trying to connect my ps3 through a belkin router but it is not working. the wireless icon pops up from the router but what is a WPA Key??? HELP!!!


WPA === Wireless Protected Access

It's a level of encryption between the router and each wireless device, to add "security" to your wireless traffic.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on a computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.

Restart the computer.

Start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router.

From this web-interface, you can set an SSID and set the encryption-level (e.g., WPA) and you can set a password/pass-phrase/pass-key for your wireless network.

Use the same SSID and password on your PS3.

That won't work because your old sbc wireless router 2wire gateway is also a modem. You need a plain router for Time Warner. Try Linksys router.

One serious issue are the costs, as you pay for the downloaded MB once you exceed your free data limit,
Not sure if you want to use it privately, then you need to monitor the amount of downloaded data closely otherwise you will be poor very soon :-). Check at the Vodafone Home page the costs.

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.

USB Broadband to wireless router through desktop PC


If I get you right you are useing a 3g Internet connection and have a router wich conets the 2 computers together, the problem is that you can't share the internet connection.
Without any information about the operateing systems I can tell you the idea:
First you need to disable DHCP server on the router and use static IP addresses on both PC, the IP address should be something like

PC1:
IP: 192.168.0.2
Network mask:255.255.255.0

PC2:
IP: 192.168.0.3
Network mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.0.2

In this IP configuration above PC1 has the 3g modem connected.
This was the easy part, hard part is to share the internet connection on the network, that's a little different ritual on every operateing system, try to use google to get your specific one.


However there's a much more easier way to solve all your problems if you can't make it work, but it costs money. All you need to buy is a 3G router and that will do the same thing for you what your old router did.
I did a little search for you on Australian Ebay to see what you can get.
But I'm sure you have your own cheapbfavourite source of computer hardware as well.


Hope this will help you sorting out your porblem.

Regards
Imre
