The wireless router is the access point where the signal is produced, this gets hooked to your cable/dsl modem to share the internet connection wirelessly, your laptop needs a little wireless card to be able to connect to that router, these are cheap and come in a variety of different types, the simplest is to go to Best Buy and pickup a USB wireless adapter and plug it in and put in the cd that comes with it and install it and then Windows should take care of the rest as long as your router is on and there is no password applied.

Trendnet router will not give a wireless signal, Wi-fi on laptop is enabled, direct connection from modem to laptop will give internet connection. Tryed unplugging everything, resetting it. Nothing I know...


1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop/desktop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Tip

Internet suddenly slow? INET light going nuts in the modem?


Someone may have hacked into your router and is using up your bandwidth.<br /> <br /> go into the router and change (or enable) the security settings. <br />If you don't require wireless, DISABLE it.<br /> unplug and reconnect the modem/router<br /> reset the computer.<br /> <br /> PS - don't think that just because your wireless security is configured that someone can't hop onto it.<br /> I have an old P-III laptop that can crack a 128 bit WEP key in 8 minutes!<br /> Disable the wireless if you don't need it or change to WPA/WPA2 personal.<br /> <br /> It may even be that someone hasn't hacked in to your system YET but was attempting to...one of the tricks to hacking a WEP key is to inject signals at a high rate of speed which would bring your router to a crawl.<br />

I purchased a NetGear 150 for my NV53 Laptop and I can't seem to get the router to find my laptop and my laptop to finds my router.


If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS,(many problems with LINUX) .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (disconnect the power to it for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---TRY IT NOW--if still having problems---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)
follow this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart-Do check it out

If you continue to have problem..indicate at what point in the flowchart it is getting stuck

If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this

I have a network set up with this router WBR-1310 version 1.1 . When my son came over with his laptop he could not get it to connect, and now I have been trying to connect another laptop that was not set...


The WPA or WEP encryption key is configured/enabled in the router's wireless settings. The router's SSID, WPA or WEP etc. needs to be configured in the laptop's wireless card settings fir the laptop's to communicate with the wireless router.
Please click on this link for information on how to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and configure the wireless card in the laptops and follow my instructions :-

Unable to link a wifi enabled laptop to my wired pc and modem


Make sure that the wifi switch is on in the laptop. Look for a sliding switch in the front or side panel of the laptop. Make sure that it is on.

Hope this helps!

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T


unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

Wireless router


During setup you must have a RJ45 ethernet cable plugged, one end on your router and the other on the laptop.
Make sure on your laptop, that the Local Area Network Connection is "Enabled".
If it is "Disabled" Just double click on the icon to "Enable" it then try your Setup process again.

This should work.

Is the wireless enabled for your router? Try typing 192.168.0.1 and use the default password to access your router settings. Check if wireless is enabled, SSID is broadcasted, and security is off or properly configured.

Help please....printer name does NOT appear


You must have a network set up, and you must enable file and printer sharing on the desktop. The laptop and the desktop should be in the same workgroup. Some firewalls will cause this problem.
Start with the network setup wizard in Settings/Network.

Laptop connection to Internet


In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.

However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly

If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.

If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.

Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).
