Re: set up...

Some laptops have a switch that must be toggle for the wireless to work. Check Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services to verify that the Wireless Zero Config is running.

I have a DI 624 router which is being used by laptops in our house but when i try to find the wireless network on my iphone, ipad and other computers I can't see the network, can you please help? thanks

Did you set the router to _NOT_ "broadcast" the SSID?

On the iPad/iPhone, under Settings, did you "enable" the WiFi?

Does the iPhone detect wireless networks at an Internet Cafe' or a Starbucks or a Public Library?

Did you configure the router to allow only specific MAC-addresses?

Can you view the "log-file" on the router, to see what computers tried to connect?

I want to connect a Scientific-Atlanta WebSTAR 2000 series Cable Modem to a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G wireless router but the linksys doesnt detect the modem and the computer wont let the setup program for...

Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Internet Connection

ZyXEL P-330W wireless router

No it will not work you cannot connect a router to another router wirelessly and it will most likely not be detecting each other, routers are built to transmit internet signals from modems if you have a router and a computer but you do not have your own internet connection that will not work conencting to another router you will need USB Wifi Card transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your friends wireless internet.

but if your friend only has a modem you can lend him your router and get a USB wifi transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your router that is conencted to your friends modem this will work but will not work if you and you friend will both have a router creating a network.

Error 322 router not detected

For starters you could hardwire your laptop to any of the 4 ethernet ports on the router then check if you have internet connection that way, now to connect wirlelessly you need to check if there is any wireless security enabled on the router, since your already hardwired to the router you can access the configuration page of the router by typing on the address bar or Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari. When you are prompted for a username and password just type Admin for the username and leave the password blank. Now you will see the setup page of the router, select if you want to run the setup wizard or choose manual setup for configuration. On the left hand side you will see three option, Internet, Wireless Settings and Network.
