Thank you for using FixYa
Wireless connections have a lot in common so here is a link that will give you the general configurations for a wireless Router to PC. Keep in mind that you will need to configure both the computer and the router in two separate steps. That is why it is best to use the setup disk that normally comes with a new piece of equipment and the cables.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

Also keep in mind that the equipment should be matched or designed to work with the other equipment. You will have some kind of a modem either a cable modem or internal modem or external modem that the router will have to connect to.

It is best to allow your own Internet Service Provider to set up the connections. They may not be able to support the configuration if you do not purchase it from them and then you will need to do-it-yourself.

Here are the links for configuring the computer with the different operating systems

Win XP http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/wlan_client_configure.mspx?mfr=true
Win Vista

Win7

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Laptop running 0n win 7 wont connect to router


1. you will have to designate the laptop or allow it to connect by entering it into the 3com router.
2. try connecting to the router via ethernet cord (that is connecting with a physical straight through cord) that came with the router.
If connected with this then you will have to go into the router via the IP set 192.168..0.1 depending on the router ip for loging in.
2. Go to the "wireless setup" and enter your MAC address for the laptop in the permissions list in the router. Instructions on how to do this is at the manufacturers site. Step by step.
3. Do the following step if instructions not found.
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP adresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
