Connect to the router via the admin screen and select the wireless tab. Check to see if wireless is set to disable or to a setting that is not compatable with your PC/laptop wireless card.

Hope that helps and thanks for using FixYa

Wanting to make my laptop wireless connection


Hello.

Connect the MODEM (device you received from your Internet Serivce Provider that gets the Internet signal) to the router via the WAN port. WAN stands for Wide Area Network and this gets you out to the Modem and then to the Internet.

Ports 1 and higher are for computers and network printers that you can directly connect to your LAN - Local Area Network.

To secure your connection, you will need to configure your router and you will need to connect your laptop to the router (either wireless or via one of the numbered ports on the back of the router), open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router.

Since you did not put the model of the router, I cannot give you specifics on how to secure the connection. You can go to the D-Link web site, find your router, download the manual and it will walk you thru the settings.

Basically, you will be entering a WEP key (a set of letters and numbers that you know) to allow only wireless computers that have this key.

Connecting two routers to extend network


Router A is connected to the modem. Setup router B to run as access point only. assign an un-used IP address to router B. Turn off the DHCP server on router B. connect a LAN port of router B with a LAN port of router A .do not use the Internet port of router B. do not configure WAN settings in router B. both routers must have the same wireless settings except for the wireless channel which should be different. Set the same SSID and the same wireless security settings on both routers. Good Luck

Lynksis wrt150n .. setting


Log in to your router and select the wireless tab. Then click on wireless security. Set your security mode, encryption type and create a key that will be needed to connect to the router wirelessly. Administration tab should be right next to status tab.

Router to use as relay.


Linksys WRT54GL with DD-WRT firmware. Now, DD-WRT will void the warranty, but it has been incredible for my uses when configuring WDS. A the WRT54GS has also been said to be an excellent router, but I cannot say.

WRT54GS DEVICE-NO INTERNET CONNECTIVITY


You didn't specify if you're using DSL or cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

Also, make sure that ONLY the LAN is connected from the router to the modem, and not both the USB and LAN.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

ROUTER CONNECTIVITY


Ok, do a troubleshooting session.
Unplug the router from the internet modem.
Try at first to connect using a Network cable from you PC to one of the LAN sockets.
Can you access http://192.168.1.1  with your web browser?  (the configuration page)
     If yes it is possible that the router has the same address as your adsl modem.
    change the router address to something 192.168.0.1 instead of 192.168.1.1
     Save your changes. Plug your WRT to the adsl modem and try again.

     Does the internet work now with a wired connection ?

If the above does not work can you "ping" the machine ?
      ping 192.168.1.1

if none of that works try doing a hard reset... heres a little guide (off the DD-WRT wiki)
