    how far away from each other are the router and the wireless device you are trying to connect or are you not getting internet connected on the computer that is plugged in directly to the router?

  • machadojr_fe May 11, 2010

    ok next what operating system are you running and does the router have security enabled? If it does have security enabled what kind? (ex. WEP)

  • machadojr_fe May 11, 2010

What HPC said is correct you do not need to worry about finishing the setup. You can use the ip 192.168.1.1 to log in to your router and the settings for everything will be there. The program is just a interface to show a better view of the networks windows automatically does the same thing by default with it's zero configuration tool.

here is some information on it for you: Click Here

If you have limited connectivity then next try this: http://www.howtofixanything.co.uk/howto-269.html

If still no luck this should work
Turn off both the linksys and your modem
2. Turn on your and wait for the usual lights to turn solid
3. Turn on the Linksys and wait 30 secs
4. Press the button on the front to the left. It does not look like a button but flashes while it is finding an ip address
5. now connect with an Ethernet Network Cable and make sure the internet is working
6. Next Setup the Wireless Encryption, if you don't know how to do this, post and I will help
7. Disconnect the cable and Connect Wirelessly

    Do not worry about finishing the setup, all it needs to do issetup your wireless settings and Wep Key (like a password)



    Once you know the default gateway usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 type this at the top of internet explorer where you type a website address e.g http://192.168.0.1

    and you can configure the settings manually by clicking Wireless,

    Wireless Security



    Don't forget to click save/apply after you have entered yor settings



    Please upgrade your feedback if this fixes the problem

I just added the wireless notebook adapter and it


Is your wireless network secured ? IF secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key / password.
if you are not sure about the wireless settings of the router then open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings.
You are getting the message " connected to the access point but internet can not be found ". Are you using Linksys wireless adapter ?
What is the operating system ? If it is Windows XP then use windows utility to connect to the wireless.

How do you get the internet


select internet from the Wii settings screen, then go to the internet setup screen.
first, you should make sure you have a high-speed (broadband) Internet connection like cable or dsl. then, you should see if your network is wired or wireless.

if:
-your network is wired, then you have a LAN, and you can connect your Wii with the network with a Wii LAN Adapter which can be sold at www.nintendo.com

-your network is wireless, then you can use the Internet Setup in the settings to search for your access point. all you have to do is select the connection settings option, select an open connection indicated by "None", select wireless connection, select search for an access point, see if you can select your access point from a list (if it shows up), select OK, and select OK to test the connection

-your network is not wireless, then do you have a PC running Windows XP directly connected to your high-speed Internet connection? if so, then you can connect your Wii if you get the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector and use Internet Setup to connect with it.

we actually have the wireless router to connect to ours and it works perfectly. you can also check the Wii Operations Manual (gray book) for even more details. its on pages 51-59. you should start on page 51 though.
i hope this helped a lot!

Computer repair tech said Linskey wireless caused internet prob


If you are using DSL as your internet connection there is a timeout period that could be setup in the linksys.

In order to change this you need to log into your router and on check on the setup page. You see the timeout option.

Check with your linksys manual for detailed instructions for logging into the unit. If you dont have it, you can always get it from their website.

My dell d600 wont open web page but is connected to internet


Perform the Internet Explorer setup:

1- Open Internet Explorer and go to [Tools] and [Internet Options]
2- Click on "Connections" tab
3- Click on button that says "Setup" and follow the on-screen instructions

If the above doesn't work and your Internet Explorer worked in the last couple days, make sure your browser has not updated to the new Internet Explorer 8 version.
If you have another computer at this location, check if that one can connect to the internet and surf the web
If the above doesn't work (or is not available), your next option is to perform the "System Restore"
1- go to [Start], All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore
2- choose restore my computer to an earlier time and click next
3- choose a date when you last remember internet explorer working and on the window beside it (to the right) choose from the list either "system check point" or something that may be related to updates or Internet explorer (if nothing else, choose System check point)
4- Click next and after the restart, the computer will tell you if it restored successfully.
5- remember, you can only restore to the dates that are in "bold"

Let us know how it goes and rate us. :)

  • If you test the connection immediately after selecting [Automatic] > [AOSS™] in step 7, the router settings may not be completed and the connection may fail. Wait approximately 1 or 2 minutes before testing the connection.
