Question about SMC Barricade g SMCWBR14-G2 Wireless Router (SMCWBR14G2)

1 Answer

Lost connection over wired LAN - wireless OK

All of a sudden I have lost connectivity to the internet (ie on the external link) when I try to access through any of the wired ports. LAN access is fine (I am using it to type this). So I know that my modem is ok, my adsl link is ok, my network setup is ok. I can access (over the wired links) the barricade control panel, and through it, to the modem control panel - but no further. I can communicate between PCs linked to the barricade. Just happened suddenly last night - came back from a meeting to find the external connectivity had just died. Any help will be a life-saver! Thanks. GG

    Thanks hughv. Yes, I had tried bypassing the router, and confirmed that in that case I had full access.

    I eventually solved the problem, once I had eliminated the red herring of the access throught he wireless link. Turned out the router had "lost" its DNS setting, and as I only access sites via DNS entries, this caused the apparent failure. The reason I could get access over the wireless link was that the PC was using a company VPN, and so it was using a different DNS, accessed directly via IP address. The fact that it was on the wireless port was, of course, irrelevant.

    I appreciate your response.

A common fix is to re-set the modem. Just unplug the power to the modem for 30 seconds, then re-connect it. You could also bypass the router momentarily to see if the modem is working. Just connect one of the computers directly to the modem to verify connectivity. Your control panel should also have a utility to renew the IP address.

Are you using LAN? You can only access Administration if you reset the device through LAN (pressing reset button). You cannot access Admin config after reset through wireless... If your already using LAN, try turning your firewall off. And oh, your LAN should be plugged in to one of the LAN ports and not in the WAN port...

To Configure the Router with Internet Access

Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:

  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point's DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network

carry out the resetting of the dlink router
then use lan cable to gain access to dlink router,
set up the internet conenction (i.e. your internet provider modem plugged into the dlink router also)

if it has a built in wizard then just follow the on screen instructions

Can't establish connection by cable


Assuming you would have checked your LAN port. Try using a USB LAN port device and see if it picks up. Else you can test connecting the modem via Ethernet cable to another machine. Does it work,? If it does then its your machine.

The wireless internet connection wont work. we previously had a wireless connection and now it wont register. we lost the connection completely and it doesnt show up on the list of internet connections....


Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.

WIRELESS CONNECTION


Go to the Device Manager and check Wireless Network Adapter properties. Is the Wireless adapter installed, working properly and enabled? If not then reinstall the wireless LAN driver.

If it is OK then go to the Control Panel and click on Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection anf then click on Repair. This will make the wireless router issue a new IP address to the wireless LAN card and you whould now get access to the Internet & your network.
If this doesn't work power down your wireless router wait 1/2 minute, power up and boot up your laptop after all the normal LEDs on the wireless are on.

Let me know if you still have problems plus all error messages.

Laptop cannot connect to internet outside company domain using wifi at home


typically at home you don't need any proxy settings configured within internet explorer. often in a work environment proxy settings can be applied.

if you think thar you have access to modify the settings do the following;

right click the IE7 (same for IE6) icon on your desktop select properties and select internet properties on the dropdown list.

left click the "Connections" tab
left click the LAN Settings button

deselect all of the ticks (most importantly the Proxy server part)
left click OK
left click OK

then open up IE normally and see if this has worked.
note of caution though; if as you suspect group policy is pushing the settings, next time you logon to the company LAN your changes may be lost and you will need to remove the ticks again.

also if you still get no joy try leaving the Automatically detect settings ticked with the proxy part unticked.

Wi Fi fine, ISP fine, no internet via LAN connection though.


Make sure your firewall is not blocking your ability to go to websites. I saw this the other day, somehow the users firewall was set to block all internet traffic out of the computer.
