Re: linksys wireless-g

Ok, you seem to be going around it the wrong way round, if you are trying to connect to your friends network you would not connect to his pc you would connect to his router, so you cannot use your router to connect to his. assuming you have a wireless network adapter, which you must have, you simply connect to your friends router via your pc and not your router, you cannot have one router connecting to another, only signal boosters. when your'e network adapter detects a network, select your'e friends and then enter the passkey when prompted, so turn off your router,as it can only be used for your own network, as it musn't be connected to your modem, or else you wouldnt need to connect to your friends. If you want to connect to your friends pc for file sharing make sure he has is sharing set up and you both have the same workgroup name e.g. mshome

Have a sylvania net book says connected to wireless network but keep getting can not conect to server dns error on internet explorer reset router says it is conected but keep geting dns error i am using...

The router most likely set to only allow broadcast to G/N cards only. Although you have the proper key in the netbook if its a B card the router will not allow it to talk. Go in the routers back-web setting menu on the pc you can get online with. Most routers unless changed you will type or in your internet browser. It will bring up a box that ask for user name and password. User name generally admin password generally password from factory sometimes linksys will use linksys as the user however look that up on there website. Once you are in there go to your wireless settings and set it to "neighbor friendly B/G/N" click save then get out and try your netbook again. If this does not work go back in there again and drop your wireless encryption to WEP128 you will need change the wireless key when you do this just your cell number as the key no spaces 5551234567 like that

No wireless detect connection

Note all changes to be made from wired computer only . Any computer that is phisically connected to the router.
Open the router setup page by typing in your default gateway address( router address) on the web browser
You can get it by
Start -> run -> cmd -> ipconfig
You will see the router setup page opening up
Check what it says . IF on the top it says Internet Status :: Connected then
1. Under wireless you'll see channell and ssid
2. Change channell to 6 or 11 .That gives you the best wireless signal strength . This is the most probable cause .
If you want you can also change the
3. Check your security key
4. And apply changes
5. Now on your wireless laptop go to Control panel ->Network connections -> wireless network connections -> right click -> deleate preffered networks -> refresh netweork list
6. You will find your network there select and connect.

Works great

If Ip status : says not connected
1. restore factory default
2. reconfigure router
3. reconnect

This shoud help and please let me know .
