Cannot add hp laserjet 1300n to my wireless d-link router, i'm using hp jetdirect 200m - none of my computers are detecting the printer.


First you try to PING the printer IP from other computers. They all should be in one NETWORK GROUP. Maybe the jetdirect has static IP address and the router can't give him a new IP for your home network.

If you can PING your gateway, then there was no need for the 'WINSOCK FIX'.

Access the web-server "inside" the router, and look at the table of DHCP clients -- confirm that your computer's "wired" and "wireless" connections are listed, and that they have been assigned IP-addresses.

The router should have its own 'PING' interface, so try PING-ing to 'ns.watson.ibm.com' -- you should get output like:

Pinging ns.watson.ibm.com [129.34.20.80] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 129.34.20.80: bytes=32 time=126ms TTL=241
Reply from 129.34.20.80: bytes=32 time=103ms TTL=241
Reply from 129.34.20.80: bytes=32 time=91ms TTL=241
Reply from 129.34.20.80: bytes=32 time=93ms TTL=241

if your router has an Internet connection.

Cant access internet through wireless network.


How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 4.2.2.2" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.

Toshiba wireless sees desktop but desktop cannot see laptop. using belkin wireless


this is not likely a problem with your router, here's a couple of tips (this typically works in xp...hate vista and haven't got ahold of 7 yet)

open command prompt, find your ip info (ipconfig /all) try pinging both computers' ip address (ping 192.168.x.x), then ping the router...if you're using local ip addresses it should be 192.168.0.1 or similar...its likely that one ping the other but not vice versa

MAKE SURE the first three numbers are the same, i had a problem when i missed a 192.168.1.1 vs a 192.168.0.1

If you have not created a home network, i'd recommend it...you don't have to make a network disc like it tells you to but make sure they're setup for the same network (i.e. XPHOME, JOHN'S NETWORK)

if they both still are not communicating after a few minutes, try to connect a hard line between them, set one up as the router and dns...your ip config should look similar to this:
DESKTOP LAPTOP
IP 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.3
SUBNET 255.255.255.0 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.2

DNS 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.2
you wont be able to have internet access but I do this to check network integrity, try pinging again, it should work both ways now, set up the network again and then change your gateway and dns back to your router.

I hope this helps, sorry if thats confusing

Cannot "ping" 192.168.1.1 (default gateway)


1) yes, referring to the router's IP address.

2) I determined the IP addresses of all my computers and tried to "ping" them but could not "ping" any of them. I can "ping" the IP address of the computer I am working from but I don't think that helps in TS this situation.

3) I'm wondering if my router is fully set up correctly. Do each of the computers have to be "saved" in the router's settings?
