What you can do is go into your routers settings via 192.168.1.1 and put in the username and password. Go into the wireless tab and change the wireless channel to 8 or somthing. Everyone usually has it set on 6 and this can cause a large problem if there are alot of wireless networks in the area.

If this doesn't work, try to do a hard reset on the router. Hold down the button on the back of the router for 10 seconds. This will clear all of the settings out of its memory. Then try to connect again. If this doesnt work power down both your router and your cable modem. Let them sit for a minute and then plug in the modem and wait 30 seconds. Then plug in the Wireless router. The issue should resolve itself. Also do the above.

How do I get direct network securiy key asap, I'm not connected to the router with my new laptop, I'm using my old computer


Change your wep key quickly. You NEVER post the key for anyone to read here. Are you connecting your laptop wirelesly? I'd use MAC address filtering if you do. That way only your laptop or any device you enter the mac address in the list will be able to connect to your router.

The internet connection in my area went down yesterday, but i didn't know this and thought the reason i couldn't access internet was a problem with my linksys wrt54g router. So i unplugged and...


The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.

To do this:

1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer.
2) Wait a full minute.
3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem.
4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes.
5) Plug the power back into the router.
6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting.
7) Then turn the computer back on.

You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.

If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

How can we link a Kodak printer to operate wirelesly with my laptop via a Sagem router


If the printer doesn't already have network capability, you'll need to use a USB print server. Here's an example. You connect the server to one of the router's wired ports, and then any network computer (wired or wireless) will be able to print to the printer.

Hi Friend, In this case as you have told me that you have other laptop which is working fine wirelesly. I would like you to check the IP address of the system in which you are facing the issues.
To check the IP address: 1) If system has XP Click on "Start" and then "Run". Type "cmd" in Run and hit enter A black screen will pop up, in that type "ipconfig", where the cursor will be blinking Check the IP adress under " Ethernet adapter local area connection" & " Wireless adapter"
2) If it is Vista/Win 7 Click on Start again and in Search field type cmd and hit enter Same black screen will pop up and repeat the same above steps in the black window and check the IP adress

I am using a DSL604T Router on my desk top but have another lap top in the house that has lost its connection to the internet, How can I remedy this problem......


If the laptop is wirelesly connected , Would suggest to wire it to the router first and then ensure you can browse. Once you have the router / laptop working wired, please set up the wireless connection once again.
Thanks

Can't stay connected to the internet with my laptop, but dekstop(which is directly connected to the router) has internet


I'd try calling verizon on the issue first and have them test your line. If that comes back clean, then you need to look at any extra equipment you may have at your house (alarm systems, etc.) that could throw disruption on your line. Also make sure you have filters on your phones!

Hope this helps!

Edimax Router disconnects the internet when laptop is on battery


That has nothing to do with your router.
 
Its your laptop that shuts off your wireless card every time its running on battery power.
