You need to setup security on the laptop/access point. Apparently it has been setup in the router.

  • Mark Egan Jan 25, 2009

    First, you need to know what the security type is, and the password or phrase is.

    Then, click on the connection, and create a profile for it, where you will enter the SSID and security detail (WEP, WPA, etc.) for the laptop/access point. Once you get it setup, the laptop should login without you doing anything else.

    The 169.xxx.zzz.yyy is the clear indicator that the router and laptop are not talking to each other, but do see each other.

LD335c Networking causing SC990


You need to check the network address of the newly connected network. you said it was connected to a network A (e.g. 192.168.1.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 or /24) and now you are connected to network B (e.g. 192.168.2.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 or /24). Your device had an ip address assigned in the old network, could be 192.168.1.99 this ip can not communicate with the new network 192.168.2.0, you need fir to find out what is the new network address and subnet you need to ask your network admin. and then modify the setting of your router to be part of the new network.

Why Subnet Mask is used with IP address


In networking the subnet mask is used with IP address to get the Network ID. The Network ID is used to identify that the particular IP address belongs to which network. To get the network ID the Subnet Mask is AND ed with the IP address in binary format.

Example:-

IPv4 address contains 4 fields and each field is 8bit

IP Address - 192.168.10.2

Subnet Mask (Default)- 255.255.255.0

Binary

192 -> 11000000

168 -> 10101000

10 -> 00001010

2 -> 00000010

255 -> 11111111

Logical AND (formula)

* 0 AND 0 = 0
* 0 AND 1 = 0
* 1 AND 0 = 0
* 1 AND 1 = 1

192.168.10.2 ------> 11000000.10101000.00001010.00000010

255.255.255.0 ------> 11111111.11111111.11111111.11111111
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
11000000.10101000.00001010.00000000 (AND ing)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hence after AND ing we get the network ID that is 192.168.10.0, so the IP address 192.168.10.2 belongs to this network.

Enjoy networking.

Try assigning your laptop a static IP. To do this in Windows:

  • Open Windows Start menu.
  • Open Control Panel.
  • Classic view: Open Network Connections
    Category view: Select Network and Internet Connections, and thenNetwork Connections.
  • Double-click on your active LAN or Internet connection.
  • Click Properties
  • In the General tab, highlight the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item, and clickProperties.
  • In the General tab, click Use the following IP address, and enter: - IP address. The static IP address you want to assign to this computer (try 192.168.1.110 to start). - Subnet mask. Subnet mask used by your router (try 255.255.255.0 to start). - Default gateway. IP address of your router's default gateway (try 192.168.1.1 to start).
  • In Use the following DNS server addresses, enter all the IP addressses for the DNS servers your router uses (or you can try your router's address, probably 192.168.1.1).
  • Click OK.

Unable to establish connection between PC and router.


Check your PC NIC card is installed properly in device manager or connect your PC directly to MODEM and check if IP, DG and DNS would appear.

If that works, then you know its the router (Belkin). Try resetting it to factory defaults by pressing the RESET button.

New mini computer says"acquiring network address" shows contected to netgear but won't access the internet


It means your router dhcp is not running proeprly.
You can set ip addreses manually.

for that go to my network places proeprty then you see your network adapter right click on it then go t oit's property then tcp ip .
Set ip addreses , subnet mask and gateway.

set your ip addreses if your router ip is 192.168.1.1 then you can set your computer ip is 192.168.1.2
subnetmask as 255.255.255.0
and set gateway as your router ip means 192.168.1.1

you can access your router with default link
http://192.168.1.1
or http://192.168.0.1

type user name a s"admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"

then check its ip and settings.

Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi


Hi,
I want to tell you that there might be two problems for your concern.

1. Your router is not working properly
2. Your Ipod Touch is not working properly

But it might be possible that both devices working fine just the compatibility issue.

First of all i can suggest you that you can upgrade the firmware for your router.

Then you can reconfigure your wireless setting on your router.

Then tried to put static ip on your ipod touch in the network setting option

IP address: 192.168.0.15
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1

Primary DNS: 192.168.0.1
Secondary DNS: 4.2.2.2

Then tried again to connect wirelessly with your ipod touch make sure you dont required to add mac address for you ipod touch and also you can click on the option called "Wireless Access Point"

Then you can see the option " Turn Access Control On" you can uncheck this option.

Try again i believe that will resolve your concern.

Thanks & Regards

Adding additional computer problem


Yes, the xp machine connects to the net. DHCP is not enabled. The ipconfig/all command brings up the correct static ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. But it does also say under the ip configuration that ip routing is not enabled. I did have the 2000 machine connected when I first set up the router yesterday, but I booted up my laptop to try to set up a wireless connection, and then I had to reinstall the entire router set-up.
