First before you try the wireless. Make sure that the internet is working by plugging an ethernet cable directly from the modem to your computer or laptop. If internet is working fine then remove the ethernet cable from the laptop and plug it in on your wireless router. I would advise to turn off router before plugging in modem so it would not possibly conflict with any IP address. Then go to your laptop then search for the strongest wireless signal. Chances are that would be your wireless router. Hit on connect then type in your wireless password. Wireless password should be in the sticker of the wireless router not unless you already customized it. And that's it. You are now connected wireless. In some wireless router you might need to turn off DHCP for it to work, if that's the case and modem is working fine then call your OEM ie: linksys, netgear, dlink.

Hi do you know how I can connect my lap top to the internet wireless with my linksys wireless router ? the lap top asks for an access code and I do not know what it is or how to find it do you know how to...


The access code or password is the encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop/computer to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have a new hp lap top with windows 7 it is recognizing my linksys router but saying no internet connection available, i have two other laptops that have no problem connecting


You have befw11s4 router, which is very old router.
May be you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router.
change the channel to 6.
check the wireless security settings.
Make sure that the wireless MAC filter is disabled.
For this you will need to access the router set up page.
make sure that the computer is connected to the router with the cable when you open the router set up.

Installed belkin router for my lap top - doesnt work


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya!

You have the right gizmo there. You just need to set it up correctly. If you are in the US contact belkin @ 1 800 223 5546.

You need to know your ISP type first before trying to contact them. Know if you have a PPPoE (High speed DSL with password) Dynamic IP internet (no user name or password required to connect to the internet, usually used by cable internet providers)

After you find the right information just contact belkin and they will assist you with the proper router usage.

Have a great day.

Connecting with internet


Yes, that is possible since you have a wireless router. Router can share internet connection. Go to this link this will help you setup the wireless connection (secure it if you want)

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/wireless/Dlink/DI-524/wireless.htm then on the very bottom there is an option how to Configure Windows XP to connect to your wireless network.

I suggest this because it would be better if there is encryption on the network so people wont be able to access your internet for free (unless you give them the security key)

Connecting one network to another?


This is what I would do I would connect the wireless to the internet direct and allow all PC with wireless capabilities to access the net through that wireless irrespective to where I place the wireless router.  Alternative I would link the cable on on the second floor the one you use for the PC to access the net to access the the wireless it should automatic allocate IP addresses as each machine accesses the network.  The speed of that wirless is decreased as each wireless PC comes on line.

NetGear Super G 108Mbps Wireless Firewall


If you are connecting wirelessly, then it's more than likely that your wireless card or usb dongle cannot connect as you router is probably set at 108 mbps. Your receivers are more than likely only capable of connecting at 54 mbps so change the streaming rate on your router to 54 mbps. This will not alter your internet connection speed as the 108 mbps only refers to the rate of streaming speed on your local area connection (from one pc to another)
