Question about Intellinet Active Networking Intellinet Wireless Router with 4 Port Switch (521246)
SOURCE: router & new laptop
Firstly you need to hard wire your internet line to your router and then your router to your pc. You cant really set it up unless they are "connected" physically. You need the SSID information and if you are going to be secure you need to set up a secret key/password key/secret phrase that each computer will have to have in order for the two devices to do the handshake and understand each other. Your security should be WEP, WPA, WPA2. Once hard wired you need to start an internet session and put the IP address of the router management console into your browser ie http://192.168.0.1 (refer to your manual for this and the admin password needed to access the console) Once in here you set your security type WEP etc and your secret key. (Think of this as your password/passphrase) On your pc you need to set your wireless networking device to have the same information. Then you can work wirelessly as long as all devices have the same information. There is no substitute for reading the book for this one though.

You have a switch which is like a hub. You want a router, the router will assign IP addresses to each computer in your home. If you need to set up port forwarding then you do that within the router settings. For the most part newer routers have Universal plug and play which will handle the port forwarding for you.

I presume that you are trying to connect wrelessly. You need to select the same type of security at both the router and the computer. WPA is the most secure so select that. It is easier to do the router setup using a wired connnection. Then disconnect the wired connection and then right click on the adaptor on the laptop and setup using the same configuartion etc.

hi! there is no problem with your internet connection with your router but the problem is your dell lattitude wont connect to the wireless network, please try to disable your dell software for connecting to wireless network and just use the windows wireless zero config, check the on the taskbar on the lower right of the monitor, there is an icon for the wireless connection for dell, right click it and select disable, sometime there is an option that windows will ask if you want to turn on the wireless zero config..if it didnt ask, click onn start, run and type in service.msc then it will show the services go to the buttom portion and enable the wireless zero config..
