Are you connecting the modem to the computer using wireless or do you have a Wireless ISP(WISP)? In either case the ethernet jack on the back of your computer is usually located near the USB ports. If its an older PC then it may be near the bottom where the expansion slots are.

Unable to connect to netflix


There are a number of things to consider when you can't get an Internet connection.


1) are you connected to a network that is connected to the Internet? You connect to any network either through a wired or wireless connection. If wired is the Ethernet cable connected to a router (or modem) from your Internet provider? If wireless, are you logged into your wireless router or hot spot? Nothing will happen if you aren't connected to a network that is, itself, connected to the Internet.

2) If you are connected, is the device to which you are connected (wired or wireless) itself connected to the Internet? One quick way to fix it if it isn't is to simply turn it off, wait about 15 seconds, and turn it back on. Then turn your computer off, wait 15 seconds, and turn it back on. This is a "network reset" and fixes Internet problems about 80% of the time.

3) Finally, if you are connected and the device to which you are connected is itself connected to the Internet, are your network setting suitable for the Internet. To fix these problems go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced, Reset. Resetting the Internet settings often clears up the problem.

4) Once you do these things your Internet should be okay, provided that you are receiving an Internet connection from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Before calling them and checking you might like to borrow another persons computer or have them come over and see if they can connect. If they can you will probably need to take your computer to a shop as there are probably technical issues you are not going to be able to resolve easily. If they cannot connect then the problem is usually in the modem/router provided by your ISP or in your account (you'd be surprised how many people don't pay their bill and are surprised when they can no longer get on the Internet. It's funny how that works.)

Network cable not properly plugged in or may be broken


which OS do you have? XP, Vista, 7, etc. you must have a wireless adapter in your PC to use wireless and it must be enabled.
if not wireless, then you must have an ethernet slot with cable(CAT5) inserted from internet modem/router. if you have a laptop then you have wireless available. there is a key on keyboard to turn wireless on. you have to have your Network assigned to the wireless internet provider too. if you have cable(cat5) connected to a modem or router/modem connection, and you see an ethernet icon in your lower right corner window(looks like a little computer display), then you have an ethernet connection. if not then either the cable is bad or the modem/router is not producing a connection to pc. thats alot i know but i have little knowledge about your internet connection on your pc. you have not given that to me to use

Configuring dlink 1320


Wirelessly or cable ?
D-Link Router to an AT&T DSL Modem
With an always-on, high-speed Internet connection like DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), a router is a prudent addition to your local network.
It filters out unauthorized access to your network, which prevents an intruder from accessing computers that are connected to that network.
However, getting your computers, routers and modems on the same page may not work right "out of the box."
There are a few things you must be aware of, especially if this is a wireless network.

Unplug your DSL modem and D-Link router.
In order for the network to properly recognize its devices, these devices must be attached in a specific order.
Plug in your DSL modem's power cord.
There is usually no power button on a modem.
Simply plugging in its electrical cable will turn it on.
Give your DSL modem a couple minutes to re-establish its connection to AT&T's network before taking any further action.
Plug in your D-Link router's power cord.
Like the DSL modem, this router will probably not have a power switch; simply plug in the power cable, and it turns on.
Let the D-Link router sit for a couple minutes while it establishes its connection to the DSL modem and AT&T's network.
Physically attach your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Even if the router and modem are wireless, a physical connection must be established to properly configure the router.
If this is not a wireless network, then your setup procedure is essentially complete.
To access a D-Link router on your network, open an Internet browser and navigate to the 192.168.0.1 address.
This will bring you to your D-Link router's interface.
The default User Name is "admin" (without the quotes), and there is no password.
Enter the User Name and click the "Log In" button. This will bring you to the Setup window.
Refer to your D-Link router's documentation for changing the default password (highly recommended) and forwarding ports.
If this is a wireless network, you have a couple further steps.
First, change your network's SSID (Service Set Identifier) title, so that you can recognize it when other wireless networks are nearby.
Also, choose your wireless encryption and passphrase. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is a solid option.
Specific instructions depend on your model of D-Link router; so refer to your documentation (which can usually be found at the manufacturer's website if you do not have it on hand).
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer.
Your new wireless network should be visible with your computer's wireless adapter.
Windows and OS X will notify you of networks in range when your adapter is active.
Connect to the one with your SSID, and enter the passphrase.

Wireless Network D-Link
If you have a D-link wireless network, your computer is susceptible to outside intruders unless you take preventive measures to prevent intrusion.
There are some important settings that you need to change within your D-link control panel to add an extra measure of security.
By changing these settings, the intruders will have no other choice but to choose another computer to attack.

Type the router IP address, "192.168.0.1", into your Internet browser.
Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Enter your username and password to log into the D-link configuration panel.
By default, the username is "Admin" with a blank password field.
To prevent outsiders from being able to access your D-link router's configuration panel, change the username and password to something more secure.
This can be done by selecting "Tools" from the menu and selecting "Admin."
Select "Administration Settings" and enter your new username and password.
Save your changes by clicking "Apply."

Enter the IP addresses for the computers you want to give access to your router.
You can do this by clicking the "DHCP" link underneath the "Home" tab. Click "Apply" to save the IP addresses.
Select the "Wireless" link underneath the "Home" tab.
Enter a name in the "SSID" field to identify your wireless network.

Choose "WPA" for your "Security" option.
WPA will provide the highest level of security for your wireless network. Create a WPA password to access your wireless network.
For maximum security, enter a combination of numbers, letters, and symbols.
Store your password in a safe place in case you ever forget it.
Click "Apply" to save your settings.

Install a software firewall program on your computer to add an additional measure of security for your wireless network.
A few of the popular firewall programs available are Norton Antivirus, McAfee and Zone Alarm.

We have two computers and we are trying to set up a network so both computers can use internet, the host computer has windows vista and coble modem the other computer has windows xp and is about 275'...


Hi.
You are going to need two things for this to work.
First, you need a wireless router, these usually run about $50-$60.
Then after you get the router, you need a wireless usb adapter, so that the xp computer can receive the signal from the router.

Connect the lan cable from the cable modem that is currently attached to the vista computer to the router, then connect a lan cable from the router to the vista computer.

The xp computer is easier.
After you have the router hooked up, just plug the usb adapter into the xp computer, install any software that comes with it, and after it install the drivers it will be able to connect to your router, and have wireless internet.

Make sure that you know the name of your router, that way you are connecting to the right one.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day.

I need to move my computer but my broadband supply is fed into only one room. What do i need to transfer it without having cables everywhere?


Go wireless. Put a wireless router right next to the modem, stick a wireless card into your computers/gaming consoles and then you can move your computers anywhere you want.

You could move the modem closer to the new destination of the computer. If you are DSL, call your ISP and have them come run a new outlet. If you are cable, call them to run a new outlet. If you are up to it, both are very easy "do it yourself" projects.

How can i set up a connection to a network with windows vista basic


There are several ways to do this you can use a router, wireless router or set up a direct connection. With a router all you have to do is connect your modem to the router and computers to the router. For a wireless connection you need a wireless card installed in your computer and a wireless router. You connect your modem to your router and set up your wireless connection with the software that came with your card or through windows wireless service. You can also connect two computers through their ethernet port with an ethernet cord. You plug coonect them with the cord go into control panel open network connections and to the left chose set up home or small office network. You will need to configure the computer with internet access as the host and the other as a guest. You can share any type of connection such as dial up, cable, dsl, and broadband.

Cant conect to internet using wirles with Windows Vista


Hi,

This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down.

Right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.


Good luck.

Internet connection


ok, well give this a shot then. But is it possible that the other computer is connected to a network called Belkin?

It is also possible that MAC address filtering is turned on on the router so it will not let your computer connect. if it is, you will have to add your mac address (00-1A-73-DE-12-D5) to the approved list of MACs.

Anyway, you can try manually setting your IP address.
and see if that gets you on. If it doesn't, and MAC address control isn't the problem, then either you have a driver problem or your laptop and wireless router hate each other desparately.
  1. Click Start and click Control Panel.
  2. Select Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center, and click Manage network connections from the list of tasks.
  3. Right click your local area connection and click Properties.
  4. Select ipv4 Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) from the list and click the Properties button.
  5. Select Use the following IP address.
IP address - 192.168.2.199
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway - 192.168.2.1
DNS Server - 192.168.2.1

This will force you computer to get network settings that match the netowrk. But beware, this will affect you if you try to go another network. You will then have to switch back to automatic configuration. but if you set up these settings and still can't get on, there is something wrong with the driver configuration. But make sure that there isn't another network called belkin.

If the manual configuration doesn't work, try updating the wireless driver from the manufacturer's website. Also try connecting to a wireless hotspot somewhere else and see if it is a computer problem or a problem with this specific wireless network.

Post back if you need anything further, I'll hang in with ya as long as I can.
