    Usually when I can't connect to other people's routers it has to do with which service pack I'm running.

    What version of windows are you using?

    What kind of router is it?

    Does the wireless require a password?

    Probably she has a secured network and you need to provide a key so you can connect. What error messages do you get when you try to connect?

It sounds as though your friend has an encrypted network. If your friend knows the key, you can go into your network center/network properties and connect to that networtk. Look at the connection properties that he/she has on their computer and type the same info into yours and you should be able to connect.

You need to ask your friend for permission to connect to his wireless router and Internet and if he agrees he will give you his router's wireless setting so you can connect to his wireless router.
He may ask you to contribute to some of his Internet charges.

ZyXEL P-330W wireless router


No it will not work you cannot connect a router to another router wirelessly and it will most likely not be detecting each other, routers are built to transmit internet signals from modems if you have a router and a computer but you do not have your own internet connection that will not work conencting to another router you will need USB Wifi Card transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your friends wireless internet.

but if your friend only has a modem you can lend him your router and get a USB wifi transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your router that is conencted to your friends modem this will work but will not work if you and you friend will both have a router creating a network.

Cant access internet but can connect to wireless TP-link router


Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer .
You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online.
Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer.
Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens.
Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.

The ploblem is In need the solution of wire less network to build in the big house.


I presume you need Internet access in this house using a wireless network.
The best place to locate the wireless router is in a spot centrally located where the radio signals can reach the rooms where the computers are located. The DSL or cable modem/connection would also need to be in this area so it can connect to the wireless router.
If the wireless router is in a multi-storey house and the floor slab and walls are concrete and/or brick, then the radio signals will be impeded and the signal strength to some rooms will be weak.
In such circumstances, it maybe better to install network cables from these rooms to the wireless router, or install wireless access point repeaters to increase wireless coverage.
If you are not sure how to setup and install this network, then I suggest you get help from a computer savy friend or from your computer friendly shop.
