I dont know the wifi password -windows 7 of my broadband


When you power up the wireless router and the LEDs are ON then the router appears to be OK and this also applies to the DSL or cable wireless modem. To check if the modem is configured to your ISP settings and the modem connects to the Internet, connect the modem with a LAN cable to your laptop and check if you can get into the Internet. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router. To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1, Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Linksys router password


To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

I am installing multiple worksations and need to know how to put them together. Is there a amnual?


There are networking books but networking is so complex that people specialize in just networking as a career.
If they are windows based machines all having thier own hard drive and Windows OS then the setup can be as simple or as complicated as you make it. I will give you basic instructions on how to do a basic easy network. First there are 2 kinds of networks you can build.

Static. Where you assign network addresses to each computer.
Dynamic (DHCP) where the network address is automatically assigned to each computer.

(An example of an address would be 192.168.1.1 this would normally be your routers address. You can have or change these numbers up to 255.255.255.255 but most people leave the numbers alone and dont mess with these settings in the router.)

For simplicity I will go with Dynamic. This allows you to let the computer do most of the work for you.
First get a router if you dont already have one. This device will assign network addresses to each computer on the system and also allow you to share the internet. If you are not using high speed internet you still use a router but you dont have to do the internet connection portion of the router setup.
Now all the computers on the system are on the same network as far as adresses are concearned. If you need to hook up more computers than you have ports on the router you can add in a switch. This is like a splitter for one of the connections on the router.
If you need all of the computers to talk to each other you will need to set up all the computers to be on the same Workgroup and allow file and printer sharing on each computer.
WIth XP you click start and then control panel. Look to the left of the window that pops up and make sure your on classic view. You should see see a network setup wizzard click that and follow through:
Using existing connection (normally)
CLick next
Create a computer name (I leave the description blank but you might put something in for easy Identification of each machine)
Click next
Create a workgroup name. (MSHOME is default in XP. Change it to something you will remember)
Click the Turn on File and Print Sharing dot.
Click next
Windows will probably show you what you did.
Click next
Windows will configure your computer for the new settings and then ask if you want to create a network setup disk. I normall just click the dot next to "Just finish wizzard". When you finish the wizzard you will need to restart your computer. As you do this each computer should end up with a shared documents folder that you can see by clicking on start and then computer. To see the other computers shared folders you will need to go to Network places. Place any files you want to share in the computers shared folder and the other computers will be able to see the file by browsing the appropriate computers shared folder.

If you are using Vista then you go to: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Join-or-create-a-workgroup

and follwo the instructions there. If you have Windows 7 the instructions are almost the exact same as Vista.

There is a special network setup feature built into Windows 7 called homegroup but unless all of your computers Are Windows 7 and at least one is Windows 7 Pro you will want to do the above setup I started you with.
Hope this helps... Dale

Need help with sharing an internet connection... Please Read


only way I can think of doing that is if you used a cross over cat 5e network cable between the desktop and laptop and assigned static ip addresses to them so your desktop would have 192.168.1.2 and your laptop would have 192.168.1.3 both with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and on the desktop put the default gateway as the laptops ip address.

Not sure if you would have to use internet connection sharing on the desktop to get it to work as ive never done it that way.

Would be a lot easier to just connect the desktop via a network cable directly to your router ( assuming you have a router ) if not buy a router and use that instead.

I have a laptop comp i just got a desk top comp i have embarq broadband internet which comp do i pit the cd into to install and which comp do i hook up the embarq box to?


It sounds as though you will need to get router to allow the sharing of the Internet between the two computers. Using a router makes it much easier to share an Internet connection between multiple computers. You would connect the Embarq box to the router on the WAN port, and then connect your computers to the LAN ports of the router. You may also want to get a wireless router in the event your laptop has a Wi-Fi connection.

WILL CONNECT TO WIRELESS BUT NO INTERNET OPTIONS. ONLY ON LAPTOP WILL WORK AT A TIME


Hi,

On your post "WILL CONNECT TO WIRELESS BUT NO INTERNET OPTIONS" this would be a configuration/settings issue more to do with TCP/IP. Pls post back what modem and your ISP (provider).

On "ONLY ON LAPTOP WILL WORK AT A TIME", do you mean you would want to use the Internet on more than one computer? If yes, then you would need a router to share the internet connection.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
