    Sorry, no offense was intended. What I wanted to say was the suggestion you quoted (and I certainly appreciate it) was that it didn't work. I also appreciate the fact that this problem was not so unusual. I do appreciate your time and effort and hope somehow the problem can be resolved.

    you need to change my rating. this is not "Inappropate"

    I didn't give some thing totally out of the context of your question.

    I gave you the solution and it didn't work this should be "Thanks for Helping"



    you will never get any more help from me, if that is how you are going to view the help I give you. I am here on my own time and give you the best advice based on what you have stated.



    You get what you pay for..... since this is a free advice, you get nothing.

    Windows xp

    1).right click on my network places, and select properties

    2). select local area network and select properties

    3). select Internet protocol (TCP/IP) and click on properties

    4). select and check obtain an IP address automatically and obtain DNS server address automatically

    5). click OK.Ok.OK to exit. restart the computer

    Windows Visat

    1). right click on network, and select properties

    2). select change adopter setting from the left panel.

    3). double click on local area network

    4). high light Internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IP), and click properties

    5). select and check Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically.

    6).OK, close and close restart the computer



    if you still ahving problem after you restarted the comuter, then you need to go back to the Internet protocol page and put in 192.168.2.5 as IP address, 255.255.255.0 as subnet. go down to DNS and put in 192.168.2.1 as primary DNS address.

Dell dimension 1100 DE051 Internet drivers are installed All connected successfully Internet will not work Please help


Check that all drivers are installed and working in device manager as when I reinstalled Windows not all of the drivers installed and I had to do it manually. These drivers were the ones that give you access to the internet. These were network adapters and IDE ATA /ATAPI controllers.

Hope this helps.

How to configure a wired/wireless home network


Hello,

In this guide I will go over the steps needed to setup a basic home network. In this network, we will have a desktop computer, a wireless laptop, printer, router and cable modem.

g33k4u_0.jpg

*All devices should be turned off at this point*

1) The cable modem which is usually provided by your internet service provider, should be connected to your coaxial cable(broadband internet) that is active, and can be anywhere in your household. This modem can also be for DSL connections(phone line).

*If you only have one device you wish to connect to your home network, this device can plug directly into the modem and you will not need a router*

2) Next, you will need to connect the router to the modem. You will use a Cat5 cable to do this. It is also commonly referred to as a Ethernet cable or patch cable. On the modem, you will see a Ethernet port, plug one end of the cable to this port. On the router, you will see many Ethernet ports. The port you wish to use to connect the modem to the router is usually separated from the other ports and may be labeled (modem or internet). The ports labeled 1-6 for example are your LAN ports and normally for computers etc. So, plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the port labeled modem or internet that is away from the other ports.

3) Now, for each device you wish to have wired network access(computers, laptops, game consoles) you will need to plug an Ethernet cord into each one, and plug the other end into one of the LAN ports on your router.

4) Power on the cable modem, wait 30 seconds then power on the router.

4) Next, you will need to power on your desktop in order to configure the router. Please consult your routers manual in order to do so.

5) Once your router is configured, you should be able to access it from any of your devices and these devices should have access to the internet. If you wish to have wireless access also, you will need to setup wireless security, password and a SSID. Your SSID is the name you give the router, and this is the name that will show up when you search for routers within range of your computer. Below is a picture of a list of wireless access point SSID.

6) At this point there are several ways to connect a printer. For simplicity, you can connect it to one of the computers, and give access to the other computers. The following guide will go over this step,

I hope this guide helps you in your quest to setup a basic home network. There are many factors that come into play and additional steps may need to be taking but this will get you started!

I have a wna1100v1 usb wireless adapter that is on my home pc and i need to access the internet via the belkin router my comp shows a possitive connection with signal strength of 75%. But i can't connect...


It could be a number of things. Most of them would be very hard to explain on this website. I will try to explain though.

*Make sure you installed the wna1100v1 drivers and software.
*Try restarting everything. Computer and router.
*Unplug router, wait a minute. Plug back in. Allow time for router to reestablish internet connection.

Hmm...there are a few others but they are a bit harder to explain.

Thanks.

My apartment receives its internet connection via ethernet from an external router. I had been using the Belkin F5D7231-4 as a wireless router (not configured as an access point) but recently it dropped...


You don't want to set a static IP address in your wireless router. You'll be connected to the network alright, but the IP address won't be recognized by the primary router. Thus, you'll see you're connected with only local access.

First and foremost, ensure that your Internet connection is valid. Plug the ethernet cable from the wall directly into your computer and test the connection. If you can't get it to work, then the problem is not on your end. Contact the agency in charge of the external router (e.g. apartment maintenance).

If your connection is fine hard wired, you may have bad data or a faulty configuration in your wireless router. I suggest doing a complete hard reset (there should be some instructions with your router on how to do it--some have a small flush mounted button that you have to press for a few seconds). Set up your wireless router as if for the first time. This should take care of your problems.

I have a ZONET wireless router but don't know how to get my computer to read it


Your computer needs to have a network card to plug into the router 1st, using a CAT 5E network cable, so that you can access the configuration screen or if you have the software for the router you can use the USB port and install it like a peripheral device.

Try using http://10.0.0.1 to access the configuration screen using your internet browser

Once your wireless network is up you need to have a wireless network card in your PC so that you can access the wireless network.

I can't get internet connection when the router is in place but it works without it, i no longer have my instalation guide or software(cd)


The only "installation" you need for the router is to connect it to the modem, plug in the power and, if it's a wired router, to connect it to the computer.

Then configure your computer's internet connection to connect to the router. (How you do that depends on which operating system the computer is running.)

If you're getting a wireless connection with no router, you're connecting to someone else's router - which is both illegal and dangerous (it gives them access to your computer).

I cant get virgin netgear router to connect to my medion laptop, i get to the last part of the installation process when it says attempting to connect to newtork and it comes up move your connections...


Have you accessed and setup your wireless part of the modem?

To access the router settings menu, you will first need to log into the Wireless router following the steps below:
Open Internet Explorer
In the address bar type the following address:
192.168.0.1

You will be prompted to enter a Username and Password to access the interface, please use the following default details:
Username: This can be found on the bottom of the router
Password: This can be found on the bottom of the router

From the list on the left hand side, click on ‘Router Status’.
Within the Router Status section there are two areas you will be able to access:

Show Statistics
Connection Status

The Router Status page gives you a detailed status overview of the connection configured on the Wireless router.
Click ‘Connection Status’ to see more information on the broadband connection.
If you have already configured your broadband, you are able to establish/terminate the connection by clicking Connect/Disconnect.
You can also click ‘Show Statistics’ to show you current connection speed and more information on your Broadband connection.
Clicking on Basic Settings enables you to check all the Internet settings of your Broadband connection. Including the Login name (username) and password, IP address and type of connection.
Clicking on ‘Test’ will perform a standard check of your Internet connection and settings.
ADSL SETTINGS
The ‘ADSL Settings’ section provides you with some more information about your Internet connection. These are:
Multiplexing Method
VPI
VCI
WIRELESS SETTINGS
This section gives you full information regarding the Wireless connection. From here, you can change security settings, the SSID (Name) of the router and the access control list. Options list from:
Name(SSID) virgin broadband (default)
Region Europe(default)
Channel 11(default)
Mode g&b(default)
Enable Wireless Access point
Allow broadcast name
Security options (None, WEP and WPA)
- hope this helps
