Question about Dynex Enhanced-G Wireless Broadband Router

1 Answer

Can't configure router so my adapter can access my network

I bought both a Dynex Enhanced-G Router + USB Adapter, and had no problem setting either up, but...

I can't get into and change the configuration settings for my router, so that I can access the internet on the computer that has the adapter.

The computer that has the router has... Windows 98... /: But it's hooked up and working fine with my cable modem and whatnot.

The computer that has the adapter has XP, and will pick up a perfect signal, just says I have limited or no access to the network. I can pick up my neighbors signal, barely, and browse the internet with that, but not my own.

The CD won't properly load on the computer that has the router, and I tried to load the 192.168.2.1 page, or whatever it is, so I can fix whatever's wrong, but I only get search results, even when I put http:// in front of it...

I tried tech support with my cable company, because they were the ones that suggested I get a router + adapter, because I wanted another computer to have [better] internet, and now they tell me that they don't offer tech support for third party routers/adapters, or any routers/adapters that they themselves don't rent out...

I already shelled out over $100 to get both. Just my luck.

I get different results from different sites and people, and so far, none have worked.

[[Was that detailed enough?]]

If anybody knows how I can fix this, I would super appreciate it.

Thanks...

Use the XP to config Router.
Your 98 and your router are on different SUBNET check it.
Connect XP computer to Router using lan cable
Be sure to be on same subnet
Configure your Router
SEt same subnet for every PC connected to router.
Then connect to router using Wlan.

Move closer to the router and see if the situation improves. if it does the signal is just weak from where you are. if it does not I would uninstall and reinstall the device driver to see if that resolves the issue. May also try to change the wireless channel the router is set to, you may be experiencing outside interference on its current frequency.

Hello,


Does the stick see any other wireless networks? Can you try creating an Ad-Hoc network from your other laptop to this one through the USB stick? If the answer to either of these two questions then the stick is working fine.

I would check to make sure your router is not using solely a N network type because the USB stick will not support it.

If you are using a duel band router and you are currently using the 5ghz network then the USB stick will not detect this either.

Lastly if your network is not being broadcast, your laptop may connect to the network but your USB stick will not be able to locate the network.

You can also try power cycling the router (unplug for 30 seconds) and then search for networks again.

Thanks,

Pat

I use the 802.11g enhanced wireless g notebook card and i use the belkin N 150 router but when i try to connect to my network, i will connect to the network but it cant find the network address


For that you need to enable DHCP in router.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Click on DHCP and enable then save settings and restart router then enable ip address get automatic in network adapter property.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I find the WEP Code for my Wireless G Dynex?


The wep key is setup on the wireless router, not the adapter. If you do not have the login information for the router, then the easiest thing to do is reset the router to default settings (this removes any existing keys) and then configure it with a new key. If you reset the router, you will need to connect to the router with a network cable to reconfigure it.

Dynex Wireless G USB Network Adpater Locks up Vista Computer


There is a port, Memory range, or IRQ conflict between the two units (printer and network adapter. You need to go to:
Control Panel>System Maintenance>System>Device Manager check the 2 parts you are having trouble with, they might be in the "?" area. You can also delete the network adapter here and that might fix your printer problem, if not you will have to delete and re-install the printer. It is possible that these 2 units will not work together. If you do re-install the network adapter try to do it with the advanced options so you can change to parameters.

Hope I helped...

Wireless signal keeps dropping/dissapearing


Check my tip
Using Router and Wlan adapter from different brand (Dynex + Belkin) is sometime calling for trouble: you must configure both to be sure to be on same standard (or change Both).
I'm using Netgear + Belkin and tune is not easy
On router config check radio power, reduce the used standard (B/G A/N) to the only one used by Belkin adapter (N).
Be sure you removed Windows zero wireless configuration (= use windows to manage my connection= OFF)
edit your belking wireless networking utility to automatic reconnect:
moz-screenshot-1.jpg

try downgrading to G standard from router side
Check your network connection plugging your laptop to router via lan cable.and check network params (DHCP DNS etc.).
Then check wlan connection near router, if you experience wlan drops only when far from router, find any possible interferences source (Microwave, cordless, remote) remove it or be ware you cannot have wlan when your wave is working.

Dynex Enhanced Wireless-G USB


Possible reason why your computer is not getting online wirelessly is because the wireless settings on the router and the wireless settings on your computer do not match. Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

A. Checking the Wireless Settings of the Router

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it doesn't take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you can't remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. When the setup page opens, click on the Wireless Settings under Setup and take note of the SSID.
5. You may also change the wireless channel here. We suggest channels 1, 6 and 11.
6. At the bottom of the page, look for the Security Options. If in case that the security is set to WEP or WPA-PSK, we have to enter the same wireless security on all wireless PCs. To make sure of the key, we can try modifying the security. Please refer to the following:

For WEP: Select Key 1 and enter 10 hexadecimal digits (0-9 and A-F) on the empty box beside it. Then, click on Apply.

For WPA-PSK: Enter an alphanumeric key (minimum of 8 characters) on the Passphrase box and click on Apply.

Note: The Key and Passphrase are case-sensitive.

7. On the left pane, please scroll down and click on Wireless Settings under Advanced. Please make sure that the boxes for Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable SSID Broadcast are checked.
8. Click on the Setup Access List button and uncheck the box Turn Access Control On.
9. Click the Apply button.

B. Connecting to the Wireless Network

For Windows XP Service Pack 1:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

For Windows Vista:

1. Click Start then select Connect To.
2. Connect to a network window will show up.
3. Select your wireless network and click Connect.
4. It will ask you for a network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

We hope that the above steps provided would help resolve the problem. If the steps above did not work, we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Can your computer go online when it is hardwired to the router?
2. What wireless adapter are you using?
3. What is the operating system of your computer?

Dynex enhanced wireless G USB network adapter


This is not a solution this is diagnosis.

First what specifically fails wireless communication or something else?

Cam you attach with a wire such as an ethernet cable to the router?

If yes was that tested and did it work?

If not you probably have a configuration issue with you ISP on the wan or modem side of the router. Or you may have the gateway address set incorrectly Or you amay be missing DNS addresses to access sites by name.

I will need the ISP's name or support web site address to assist with the above

If the above works on to the wireless connection.

Does the wireless router and wireless adapter (built-in or add-on) share a common communication band (a, b, g or n) if not that is an issue

When attempting to connect can you see your routers name?
Was the name changed from the default to assure it is not your neighbor's router?
Did you apply encryption (WEP or WPA) to either the router or the wireless adapter and not to the other device?
Do you have MAC Filtering turned on in the router and failed to add the MAC address of the wireless adapter?

Please answer the above in a response and I will attempt to provide some additional steps to determine the issue and generate a solution
