Laptop w/ windows xp won't transmit sound to viewsonic wpg-150

We're a volunteer fire department and trying to setup a wireless connection to a projector using a WPG-150 router. We have no issues with video, but we do with audio. I've hooked up the audio out from the router to our surround sound using a 3.5mm to (2) RCA y adapter and a standard rca cable. We have no audio when we try to play things over the connection. The sound works fine if we disconnect from the router. laptop is a Dell D630 with XP SP2.

    Viewsonic WPG-150. It's a wireless router for projectors that has power, LAN (in) for internet, VGA out to the projector and Audio out via a 3.5mm connection.

  • Ranger302 Jan 15, 2009

    Yep I tried a set of speakers at the router and got nothing. Plug them into the laptop and they work fine. Based on discussions with Viewsonic the issue is the laptop and something called a virtual audio cable or WDM. When I switched the audio output from speakers to this WDM I still get nothing out of the router and now nothing out of the laptop.

  • Ranger302 Jan 20, 2009

    Well I tired all the items noted to no avail so I called Dell for help. Needless to say at first they blamed Viewsonic for it not working and then she dropped a bompbshell stating the Latitude D630 can't transmit audio. I asked WHY it was installed and shows active and working properly with sounds and recording, yet it's not transmitting. She then proceeded to stat the video card within the laptop transmitted audio. I'm not the smartest regarding laptops but my BS meter was going off when she said that.

    So my question to those who have these virtual audio cables, what settings in XP are you using?

Plug a set of head phones in to the WPG-150 Gateway and play something through the gateway. If you can hear it through the headphones you have a cable or stereo problem.

If you can't hear anything: On the sending computer, double click on the speaker icon in the system tray and make sure the volume is turned up on everything and nothing is 'muted.'

    Go to the control panel and then 'Sounds and Audio Devices. Click the tab that says Audio. Check the settings under 'Sound Playback.' Try changing to different devices and also check the Volume button for each device.

Belkin n750 db connects with windows 7 laptop, but will not connect with xp laptop. It will not let me enter the password.


It is possible that, if you have the router set to wireless N only, your XP machine won't interact with it. Your XP adapter probably doesn't support wireless "N"--you'll have to tell the router to use "N" or "G"

Newly purchased Belkin Surf N300 wireless router. connected my wife's Windows 7 laptop just fine - quick and easy (in fact using it now). Went to connect my XP netbook - connects wirelessly to router...


There will be a lot of possible reasons on that, might be the wireless settings of your computer , you may try to remove all the old networks saved in your laptop and try connecting to it again,heres how 1. locate the wireless icon at the lower right hand corner of your laptop 2. Click on View available wireless settings 3. Click on Change advance Settings on the left side 4. You will have a small window with 3 tabs, one is general but just look for wireless tab 5. Box below you will see the list of the wireless name that was saved . 6. Delete everything, then make sure you apply it if there is or clicking on OK will do 7.Then try connecting again and make sure your password is correct.
or it might be your security application, try checking it and see if there's need to change especially if you got norton installed in your computer, try uninstalling and reinstalling it.

My HP laptop won't connect to my NETGEAR WGR614v7 router


What is your operating system (Vista/XP, older Windows)? Have you turned on the router's wireless router radio from the computer that is connecting? (Login to the router's setup page at 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on the router) and go to Advanced menu and click Wireless Settings.) While you are there, enable the SSID Broadcast (another checkbox hust below the one for Wireless Router Radio). Now check if your laptop can see the router.

Additional FAQs that might be helpful are at http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2589. That page has a link to setting up XP for wireless networking as well.

Its not transmitting the wireless signal to my laptop. i'm being asked for a security key. where do i find it?


o Wireless Connection Found in Range

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences

A. Checking the Wireless Settings of the Router

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you ran the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. When the setup page opens, click on the Wireless Settings under Setup and take note of the SSID.
5. You may also change the wireless channel here. We suggest channels 1, 6 and 11.
6. At the bottom of the page, look for the Security Options. If in case that the security is set to WEP or WPA-PSK, we have to enter the same wireless security on all wireless PCs. To make sure of the key, we can try modifying the security. Please refer to the following:

For WEP: Select Key 1 and enter 10 hexadecimal digits (0-9 and A-F) on the empty box beside it. Then, click on Apply.

For WPA-PSK: Enter an alphanumeric key (minimum of 8 characters) on the Passphrase box and click on Apply.

Note: The Key and Passphrase are case-sensitive.

7. On the left pane, please scroll down and click on Wireless Settings under Advanced. Please make sure that the boxes for Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable SSID Broadcast are checked.
8. Click on the Setup Access List button and uncheck the box Turn Access Control On.
9. Click the Apply button.

B. Connecting to the Wireless Network

For Windows XP Service Pack 1:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

For Windows Vista:

1. Click Start then select Connect To.
2. Connect to a network window will show up.
3. Select your wireless network and click Connect.
4. It will ask you for a network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

However, if this does not resolve the issue we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Can your computer go online when it is hardwired to the router?
2. What wireless adapter are you using?
3. What is the operating system of your computer?

Need help setting up linksys with laptop


do not worry about it..
if you are still online with the desktop..
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
If should ask for a user name and a passwd.. if it is not ..try with 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.5.1 if still not..
then for a dsl connection you might have changed the ip address of your router..

To check ipaddress
click start then run and in run type cmd and click ok..
you would be in a black dos prompt..
type ipconfig and press ok.. you would find the ipaddress

Step 3:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 4:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address
then press [Enter].

Step 5:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click the Wireless tab.

Step 6:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID) and if it’s still set to ‘linksys’ change it to something unique then click Save Settings. or else if the name is changed leave it..
ans below the wireless tab select the Wireless Security sub tab.in the blue bar. check for the defalt transmit key and key 1 if its already setup, then make a note of the key and go to Step 12 if not setb up wireless security first

Step 7:
Select any number under the Default Transmit Key to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected number 1.

Step 8:
Select 128 bits under WEP Encryption.

Step 9:
Type a wireless network password of your choice such as “MySecretKey”, then click Generate.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 26 characters.

Step 10:
The result will be a string of random characters. Copy the resulting string since this will be the key to your wireless network.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.

Step 11:
Click 3695-017.png.

Step 12:

now go to your latop. right click wireless network connectios icons and click view wireless network.. (if it is xp os)
you would fine the name of the n/w try connecting to it, it would ask for the n/w key enter the 26 digit key which you have setup and click connect, you would go online with your laptop..
