You have to configure the WDS on the 3comm, configuring it to the MAC ADRESS of the BT router (if it is wireless), if not connect it by ethernet and set the 3comm as WDS allowing the other 3 more u want to add as acepted MAC ADRESS for access points.

I want to locate my wi fi password for my iphone.


I am assuming that you are trying to connect to the internet using the built in wifi instead of the 3G. To clarify, iphones don't have passwords for wifi. Wireless access points and wireless routers are the ones that have passwords. If you want to connect to the internet using an access point or router you must get the SSID of the router or access point and also the encryption and password to join said access point or router.

Once you have this information go to your iphone and select the settings icon. Then select the Wi-Fi, then turn on the wi-fi (if it is off), then under choose a network select "Other" and then type in the name (which is the SSID), tap on "Security", select the encryption that matches your access point or router (wep, wpa, wpa2, etc) tap on "Other network" (on the top left hand corner) to go back to the configuration page, and then type in the correct password.

Once you have done this your iphone will automatically connect to the access point or router whenever it is in range and connect to the 3G when it is out of range of the access point or router.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to connect my netbook to the internet and it won't connect because it can't find an ip address i have looked and tried everything what do i need to do?


The first way, and one I use a lot, is just plug your netbook into your router at home, using the netbook's Ethernet port and the cable supplied with your router.
This way works every time, gives a fast and secure connection, but means that you need to use your netbook within cable distance of your router. Any internet usage will be part of your normal broadband usage with your home ISP, but isn't the point of netbooks that you can be mobile with them? Who wants to have nice new netbooks tied up by a cable?

2 - Wireless netbook connection using your home ISP
Another way to get online with netbooks if you're at home is to connect wirelessly to your home router.
It's a very easy process - just turn the netbook on and it will seek out your router. You get a fast connection, good security (if you tell your router to use WPA encryption) and it will usually work anywhere in your house or garden. Several netbooks, laptops or other computers can use your internet connection this way from the same router, so your family and friends can use their netbooks at the same time.
3 - Wifi netbook connection out and about

A really cheap way to get online when you're out and about is Wifi. Many busy locations - pubs, hotels, shopping malls - have "wifi hotspots" which are simply powerful wireless routers that you can use to connect your netbooks wirelessly to the net.
Some are free and can be used by any computers that are nearby. Others are owned by telecomms operators like BT Openzone or mycloud and you need to pay to use them. Monthly subscriptions or pay as you go are available. So are these free and cheap choices ideal for using with cheap netboks?
For anything other than general browsing on netbooks, beware of wifi. The free ones have no security at all, and the others have password protection, but the data you send and receive is not encrypted. This means anyone in the vicinity could snoop and listen in on what you were doing. I don't bother with wifi for this reason.

If you have a wireless router you must know the password you made when you set the router up.
Try also to look in your controlpanel network and shareringcenter.

Hope this was helpfull.

Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or 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. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi my name is Sherry ... i am a member in your company TEdata but my internet is not working ... it tells me that there is no internet access and the lamp of sync in the router is not enlightening ... and...


If sync LED is not on it can ONLY mean that there's a problem with the internet infrastructure at your place!
First, make sure you have microfilters connected to all phone points in your place. It reduces the "noise" on the phone cables, which - if not reduced, can make sync problems!
If you already have these microfilters connected, contact TEdata tech. support to determine what is the exact problem. In some cases, reconfiguring some stuff at their center (by them of course) solve it all!

Hope I helped,
Pelu.

Hi,
This could have a number of causes. However, you could try adjusting your MTU settings, since this can cause problems with accessing msn and similar sites. You can do this from within the router user interface.
You may well have tried this already. If not, experiment gradually with reducing the MTU setting towards 1400 - see this link for a quick tutorial (though not your router model, I know).
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n100603.asp
For safety, of course, please back up the registry, or set a system restore point, before trying this out.
Other 'fixes' depend on your OS and security settings. However, since the problem does seem to be within your new router, you might find more information on the 3com knowledgebase.

Problems with second computer connecting to the internet


First, is your kids computer trying to connect via the WiFi connection? If so, do you have any encryption enabled on the Belkin? (WEP, WAP, etc.) Can the computer 'see' the WiFi Access Point, meaning can it see the SSID (or WiFi name)? Are you using the Built-in XP Zero Wifi Config Utility, or did you install a proprietary utility from Belkin?

Since you have already soft reset the router (power cycle), you may have to do a hard reset using the Reset Button on the back of the router.. you will loose all your configurations, so be ready to setup your WiFi connection again..
