Connecting internet to Samsung UE40ES6710. I have two routers & neither will connect, even with LAN cable

I have two routers via Talktalk, a Huawei HG 520b & a new N series D-link DSL 2780. Both are recognized wirelessly by the TV but neither will connect to the Internet. If I connect with a LAN cable neither will even pick up the connection. Help please - but in very simple language. Gill

    Thanks Max. However, the router is connected correctly as my netbook picks up the wireless signal & connects to the internet when it's right next to the TV. The TV won't pick up the signal either wirelessly or with a LAN cable attached. I rang Talktalk yesterday & they changed a few things but still the netbook with pick up & not the TV. Any ideas please? Our broadband speed is low (3.3 average) could that be the problem? Gill

    You are sure your TV has a wireless adapter built in? Do you have a wireless setup in the TV's Menu? I'm sure you have seen this :http://www.samsung.com/us/support/suppor...

  • Gill Moore Dec 11, 2012

    Yes, It's a brand new TV with the relevant links to enter your router model, password etc. There's a two part connection process which shows whether it's picked up the router and then whether it can connect to the internet. Sometimes the first part works but not the second. I will look at the samsung support websiet again but last time I looked the TV model didn't even show as it's very new. Guess I'll just have to keep trying or try Talktalk again. What do you think about the broadband speed? I'm beginning to wonder if the TV is at fault - hope not! Gill

    You may have something, the ISP, but it should connect. May be slow connection , but should connect. Have you heard of " ISP throttling" :http://www.pcworld.com/article/158552/ch...

  • Gill Moore Dec 13, 2012

    Checked this out & our speed seems to be OK. Talktalk will be updating things soon so maybe that will sort our problem. Netybook picks up and connects to the internet fine, it's just the TV. Thanks for your help anyway. Best wishes, Gill

    Yes, I learned some things I wasn't aware of so eliminated some possible causes. Learning something new is always helpful. Best wishes, Gill

    Great attitude. It's not a problem, it a chance to learn something new. That's sort of why I do this.

  • Gill Moore Dec 15, 2012

    Great thing is that now I've contacted Talktalk again they've obviously done some tweaking and the TV is now picking up the signal & connecting to the internet. Persistence sometimes pays off too! Have a good Christmas, Gill

SOURCE: Help please! TP-Link Wireless Router TL-WR641G stopped working

It looks like all your devices by themselves are working fine.
Good start.
If you took the router out of your office I assume that the settings from the office and your home are different, which causes the setup not to work properly.

First of all you should find out which hardware version of the router you have and download the manual from here, so you have the information at hand when you're not online.

Then you want to rest the router to factory settings, so you start clean. In order to do so, use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the router's power. Second, press and hold the default reset button then turn on the router's power, until the SYS LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

Follow the instructions in the manual form page 8 on onwards with a special view on setting up PPPoE. Have your information form your DSL provider handy (Account name and password).
The default webpage for the router interface is http://192.168.1.1
Username and password are both "admin".

Do not enable any wireless security until everything is working fine.

Make sure later to change the password to something else, so no one can "take over" your router.

If this solution did not help, please don't rate it as "Thanks for trying" or so, but leave a comment instead and I will check back and we can work form there.

Good luck!

Cant connect to the internrt via talktalk modem


Hello,

This could easily be an issue with either your TalkTalk internet connection or your Wii. I did experience issues connecting my Nintendo Wii console at first too, but after getting a new router, it works just fine.

The Nintendo Wii console has never been a very good internet-enabled console anyway, and alot of wireless settings will not be compatible with it.

Make sure that your TalkTalk router is using WEP or WPA-PSK security. You can also try changing the Wireless Channel and MTU Size. make sure the MTU size is set at 1450, the channel can be anything, but only a few should work. You can access these settings easily by just going to Internet Explorer and typing in:
  1. 192.168.1.1 for D-Link and Huawei
  2. 192.168.0.1 for Netgear
  3. 192.168.1.254 for Thompson Speedtouch
If TalkTalk did supply your router, then it should be one of the models mentioned above.

If you have any laptops or phones that use the wireless and it works fine, then it may just be the Wii console. TalkTalk will not support the Wii or any video game console so there's no point in calling them for support.
I work for TalkTalk as a senior technician, so I hope this information helps.
Take Care.

I have a Buffalo WBMR-G54 ADSL Router. The local IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1. My Medion desktop computer connects connects to my Buffalo router using an Ethernet cable. I use the wireless...


> Zone Alarm free firewall and Avast antivirus have been installed on both computers

Your router is already acting as a "firewall" to block "unsolicited" traffic from reaching the computers on your LAN. So, unless you use Zone Alarm to block "outgoing" connections
(such as a computer-virus would try to make when "calling-home", there's little benefit
to using the Zone Alarm software.

> If I use Internet explorer to connect to http://myname.dyndns.org, Internet Explorer does connect successfully to the network. However, it invites me to enter the username and password for my Buffalo WBMR-G54 router - not for the storage drive.

While you are "forwarding" TCP port 21, you are not "forwarding" TCP port 80 (as used by the 'http://' protocol). So, when you connect from the Internet to your "public" IP-address, it is the router that responds, rather than one of your computers inside your LAN.

IMHO, it is "bad" that your router's web-interface is "exposed" to attacks from the Internet.
Either "forward" TCP port 80, or configure the router to use a _different_ port number for "remote management".

> If I enter the Router user name and password, that allows me to access the Router menus via the Internet, which confirms that my account at DynDns has translated the IP address successfully.

Correct. Hopefully, you're the only one who knows the correct username/password, and there is nobody that is doing "brute-force" attacks on your router, trying to login to "hijack" your router.

> if I use Internet Explorer or FileZilla to access ftp://myname.dyndns.org, I cannot connect to the router

Correct. The 'ftp://' protocol uses TCP port 21, which the router is "forwarding" to one of the computers on your LAN.

> or the storage drive - so I cannot access any of my files remotely.
> FileZilla reports -Status: Resolving address of bob1944.dyndns.org
> Status: Connecting to 78.144.xxx.xxx:21...
> Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message

So far, so good.

Is FileZilla expecting a "specific" content in that "welcome" message, or will "any" response be "close-enough" ?

On a computer on the Internet, open a command-line prompt:

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Enter FTP bob1944.dyndns.org
Press Enter
Do you get a "connecting" message?
Do you get a "connected" message?
Do you see the "welcome" message?

Note that the FTP protocol usually uses _two_ ports for File Transfer:

* port 21 for "control" (sending/receiving commands/responses)
* a "random" port for "data" transfers (including directory-listings)

It's this "random" port that your router is not forwarding.

However, some FTP-clients (probably including FileZilla) and some FTP-servers
support "passive" mode, where both the "control" and the "data" connections "share" port 21.

So, configure FileZilla to use "passive" mode, and _hope_ that your FTP-server supports "passive" mode.

Can't establish connection by cable


Assuming you would have checked your LAN port. Try using a USB LAN port device and see if it picks up. Else you can test connecting the modem via Ethernet cable to another machine. Does it work,? If it does then its your machine.

When it says 'Conntected: 100Mbps" on the bottom, all it's saying is that you have a physical connection between your computer and the device it's talking to.
Now one thing you need to double check is that (I assume you have a wireless router) the router or whatever device you have connecting to your ISP modem has the correct network information. For example some ISPs will give you a static IP address that you have to manually add to your router. If TalkTalk does that, and Sky doesn't, make sure your router is automatically obtaining an IP address. This should connect you to your ISP and to the internet. Then your DELL machine should get an IP address from your router and then you should be good to go.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
