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.

My ps3 has an error 800100a it doesn't detect any near my routers


Is your wireless turned on both on the system and the wireless router? Do you have a wireless connection setup?

If not then these may be your issue. You also need to go into your internet settings on your ps3 and the select your connection type for example: wired or wireless then > select scan> if there are any in the area select your> rename it if you want> put in the passcode if there is one> make sure everything is correct> then test the connection. If the test works then your fine.

On the other hand if you don't have a wireless router or a wireless connection setup on that will be an issue. with your wireless router they should have included instructions on how to setup the wifi network. Follow those and the problem should be solved rather quickly. Once the wifi is set up just refer back to my previous paragraph and follow those instructions again.

Ativa router


ok, fine....

Reset the Ativa router to factory defaults. This is normally accomplished by holding the reset button down for 10 seconds or more with power on for most routers.

Once you do that, you need to connect the computer directly to the motorola modem and configure it to be in "bridge mode".

Putting your modem into bridge mode means to bypass the router function and make it work as a simple modem. And, yes, if you do that then you must configure your wireless router to make the internet connection. If you don't want to do that, you can leave the modem as it is, I think the Ativa wireless router can still work even if your modem is still in PPPoE & you can still configure the router as an ethernet switch & wireless access point.

Now you can connect the router (after powering EVERYTHING down), turn on the modem, wait for steady connect, turn on the router, wait two minutes, boot the connected PC.

After you get a wired machine connected, you can enter the Ativa setup and configure the wireless security.

Open up IE or Firefox. On address bar, type in "192.168.2.1" and click enter.

Ativa wireless setup should load up. On top right, there is a Log In button. If this is your first time login in, leave it blank and submit.

Check up on the following: a) Internet WAN > Connection Type > select Dynamic; b) Wireless > Channel and SSID > Disable ESSID Broadcast, also set wireless channel to AUTO; b) Wireless > Security > set up your security, you should know what to do.

Now for the most important thing. Click Firewall, and DISABLE IT!! By doing this, it said that you'll will be vulnerable to hacker etc...blah blah, but with security keys to access wireless and virus program/window firewall should be enough to make you stop worrying. Apply changes, then the thing restarts.

*** also leave MTU setting to 1454 & set it to auto connect; leave the DNS & MAC settings alone; also leave LAN settings as it is.

i would greatly appreciate if you could give me the modem's exact model no. (such as SB4200, 2100 etc.) and the router's as well....

D-link 524 looses conection


check the timeout when idle settings on the router. you need to set it to 0 for never break the connection.

other options are to upgrade the firmware of the router.

you should also isolate the problem by connecting the pc directly to the modem to make sure the same problem doesnt occur. if it does then contact your isp.

good luck

Problem conecting with the iternet.


Service pack 2 is a more secure version, but it shouldnt effect any internet settings, post back how you are connecting, eg router, wireless, wired. I suspect that when installed the ip address of your pc was altered to XP default, so you may have to go into the properties of your nework cards and ensure that obtain an ip address automatically is ticked, or better still use the wireless connection wizard if you are wireless and the network setup wizard if wired.
