Re: How do I receive the signal with another computer?

I believe that ur getting the signal of ur router on the new computer,,if ur receiving the signal then doubleclick on the signal strength,if a box comes up with a passwrd prompt that means u hav secured ur router with a password when u setup the router,,u hav to put tat passwrd in,if u forget the passwrd it will be a bit tiring.u hav to reset the router by a button which is on the backpanel of the router.after u reset it correctly then u hav to reconfigure both the computers with the wirelss signal of the router as the router goes back to original factory settings after u reset of luck.keep me infmd

Re: How do I receive the signal with another computer?

Hi, I have given ya a link that will explain all... Basically you give the Wifi Router an SSID (Unique name, say, AlrenaWiFi... whatever ya like though) Then on the "Remote" if it isn't already, you activate, "Enable" the WiFi adapter... and when enabled, the adapter then "Detects" the (any) wifi signals, you are asked if you want to "Connect" choose YOUR wifi SSID (Name) click connect and you will Be done. Now, thats for an unsecured network, for a "Secure" network, one simply has to assign a "WEP Key" to each "end" as an extra step. This is all explained in the tutorials.

I am trying to hook up a new Sony Blu-ray DVD to my computer internet connection. The router is a WGR14v9. The player finds the router signal but will not connect after putting in the proper password.

Sony's wireless function for older models is not compatible with some hardware from what I understand.

To solve your probelem we would need the model number of the Sony Blueray DVD player.

My computer will not connect to the internet when I hook up to the Linksys wrt150n I don,t understand It because it use to work this is about to drive up the wall I have tried resetting the router but it...

If you can connect to the Internet using the LAN cable then your Internet connection is OK.
If you are trying to connect to the Internet using the wireless connection, then your problem is the wireless settings in either the Linksys or the wireless card in your computer.
First check the wireless settings in the Linksys, ie. the SSID and encryption key.
Second check the wireless settings in the computer's wireless card, this must match the route's wireless settings. If it matched then do a Repair connection. this will get the Linksys to issue a new IP address to the wireless
If the Linksys wireless settings were changed then configure the wireless card in the computer with these new settings.

For you to resolve this problem, you'll need to reset the router. Press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds, and when you are prompted for the user name and password just input "admin" in both fields.

Try connecting your computer to the router after this process.

Good Luck.

You can access your router's programming by hooking straight up via ethernet cord, and typing If it asks for username and password, type admin for both. Make sure internet settings are all set to automatic settings and no proxy if you are using cable.

The router is running fine all hook ups are fine changed the wireless card took that to a computer place and it was running fine at the shop when I got the pc home unable to access the internet even though...

The cable internet is not "seeing" the computer. The router is blocking it. That is why it works if you plug it into the modem directly. How to solve this is to turn everything off and unplug power to modems and routers for 3-5 minutes. Then replug in routers. Then restart computers.

That is why it worked at the computer store. Everything was shut down and restarted.

Also, sometimes it is necessary to call the ISP (for example Comcast) and have them re-send the signal. Also going to Control Panel Network Connections and choose "repair the connection" will reset the signal.
Be patient it will work.

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet

Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range..., and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the range, but could also be in the range, or the range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Zonet zsr1134we router abruptly stopped working

make sure your modem and your router are not using the same ip address. Many items default to A reset of either device could return it to use this ip address.

No Internet is exactly what you get if your modem is and your router is The problem can happen if either device give out an ip address already used on the network. Change which ever one you can most easily find the documentation on.

I don't recommend using static ip addresses internally, unless your documentation requires it for your setup. changing the set of ip addresses that are distributed by DHCP is the best was around this problem.

Getting a router signal, but no internet

Have you check if you have a valid IP address? You could run IPconfig in the DOS window to verify this. If you have a valid IP address, try pinging the default gateway (You should be able to ping it.) Then, try to ping a website. If you could ping a website or URL but still can't browse check your firewall settings and optimize your browser.

Please post here what happen.

Thanks and regards,
