Re: Router works except for the wireless FEATURE!

If you disconnect it from the internet (i.e. unplug the internet cable) the router will not be able to communicate with the internet - therefor it will not work. Leave the router connected until you no longer require internet use, then simply turn it off.

Hi im trying to get my wireless to work on my lap tops and i can not get to work on them can you help me plz thankyou

If there is several computers that cannot connect wireless to the internet, you have to check out you wireless router. First of all, you should try to unplug the power for about 10 seconds, then plug it back in and check if it is working. If not, you should try to connect a computer directly to the wireless router, if possible, with a network cable. If that is working, then it is something wrong with the wireless settings, perhaps interference. If that is not working, you should try to connect directly to the internet with a cable, use the cable that is connected to your wireless router. Plug it into the computer instead of to the wireless router. If that is working, there is probably something wrong with your wireless router, and you should get a new one or deliver it to repairing. If the direct connection dont work, you probably would need to call your ISP (internet service provider). I hope this would be of any help for you, and dont be afraid to ask if you need more information.

I am trying to connect a wrt150n wireless linksys router to my dsl. I am using a desktop windows 7 and laptop windows vista. Please help, I have tried everything but it just does not want to work.

unplug everything, including ethernet cables. then work in this exact order.
if you get a wireless signal and no internet, plug a computer in into the router in one of the available ports and check for internet. If no internet, unplug everything and test the modem without the router. If internet available without the router, then follow these instructions
  1. plug phone line into modem
  2. plug power into modem
  3. wait for all lights to become steady
  4. plug ethernet cable into modem
  5. plug other end of same cable into port labled "internet"
  6. wait for lights to become constant on both router and modem
  7. check your wireless device for wireless service.
if you dont get a wireless signal at all, plug your device into the rear of the router and type in the adress bar
the password and username are both "admin" or simply leave the password blank if that doesn't work

navigate to the wireless option and turn on the wireless transmiter.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast

Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

Will not connect to internet says cable unplugged

More likely that your local exchange has gone down. I'd unplug the unit completely and turn it back on after 10 seconds to make sure its not a fault with the router.

If that doesn't work, wait until tomorrow then try plugging it back in. By this time, any issue would have hopefully been amended by your internet provider.

If the problem still exists, then try resetting the router completely, and if that doesn't work. Its time to contact Netgear or replace with new

Wireless Internet stopped working. Can't reconnect.

If restarting the router and restarting computer did not work (unplug both power cables), then you need to log into the router and check network settings.

To log into router type the router IP on internet explore bar, then enter user id and password.
You find details on how to do this, IP and passwords listed on the owner manual.

If wireless security settings on router are fine, then you can reset router to factory default using the pinhole switch. You will need to enter all your broadband settings to have the router working afterward.

Help with d-link wireless router

try a power cycle. unplug the power from the back of your modem. unplug the power from your router. shut down the computer. Plug the modem in frist wait until lights are normal. Check your cables make sure the modem is plugged into the wan port. then power on your router. wait until lights are normal plug in your laptop with a cat5 cable. start up the laptop see if your able to access the internet with the cable plugged in.

If so great your on line. open ie and goto your router ip address which i think is its in your manual anyway. goto the wireless tab and make sure your wireless is enabled in the dlink router.

If your internet is not working then you need to setup your pppoe connection if your on dsl. and then do the wireless set up. default is usualy the ssid. [

Belkin router

I just worked on one of these today. Try this and see if it helps.

1. Unplug your cable or DSL modem and your wireless router

2. Plug back in the cable or DSL modem and wait for the internet to successfully connect (watch the lights).

3. Plug the wireless router back in again and wait for it to connect (again, watching the lights)

If this doesn't work, make sure you have the equipment plugged-in in the right order.

cable or dsl signal goes to modem ==> modem plugs into wireless router ===> computer plugs into wireless router.
