Question about Trendware TEW-424UB (0710931502572) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Shows 100% signal strength but does not connect to internet..(no IP address assigned)

I have installed the driver on to my W2K box. The system-tray icon shows connect to: a SSID. And the detailed connection shows the signal strength as 100% but no IP address was assigned (and so does not connect to internet). I am not able to figure out whats wrong with it. Note, the LED indicator did not lite at all. I also tried the same unit on laptop(XP). After installing the driver and connected the unit, the unit was not even recognized as connected! Any help? Thanks, Raja.

IP Conflicts in a work place

An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN or the Internet have been assigned the same IP. IP conflicts between two computers normally render either one or both of them unusable for network operations.

How IP Address Conflicts Happen

Two computers can acquire conflicting IP addresses in any of several ways:

· A system administrator assigns two computers on the LAN the same Static IP Address.

· A system administrator assigns a computer a static IP address within the local network's DHCP range (dynamic IP range), and the same address is automatically assigned by the LAN DHCP server.

· A malfunction in the network's DHCP server allows the same dynamic address to automatically be assigned to multiple computers.

· An ISP accidentally assigns two customers the same IP address (either statically or dynamically).

· A mobile computer is put into standby / hibernate mode and then awakened later.

Note that other forms of IP conflicts can also occur on a network. For example, one computer may experience an IP address conflict with itself if that computer is configured with multiple Network Adapters. System administrators may also create IP conflicts by accidentally connecting two ports of a network switch or router to each other.

Recognizing IP Address Conflicts

On most Microsoft Windows computers, if you attempt to set a fixed (static) IP address that is already active on the local network, you will receive the following pop-up error message:

The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address.

On newer Microsoft Windows computers having dynamic IP conflicts, you should receive a balloon error message in the Taskbar as soon as the operating system detects the issue:

There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.

Sometimes, especially on older Windows computers, a message similar to the following may instead appear in a pop-up window:

The system has detected a conflict for IP address...

On Mac or Linux computers, a similar message will normally appear on screen.

Resolving IP Address Conflicts

Try the following remedies for IP conflicts:

1. For networks where IP addresses are fixed (statically assigned), ensure each local host is configured with a unique IP address.

2. If your computer has a dynamically assigned address, releasing and renewing its IP address can workaround IP address conflicts.
3. If your home router is believed to have a faulty DHCP server causing IP conflicts on the home network, upgrading the router firmware may resolve this problem.

Connect network wireless

If you are using this as ethernet adapter, there definitely are IP addresses for each cable plugged into the router. Your MAC needs an IP address for the router to ROUTE the traffic to and from the internet. That's what Routers DO. Listen to your Support. Unplug all other devices from the router you connect to, then connect your adapter, and let the router assign an IP address to it. Then connect the rest of the devices one at a time, and see if that works. Make sure you plug the cable from the efibre to port #1 on the router, for highest priority of traffic.

Do you have encryption enabled on your wireless router? There is a strong possibility that you have entered the wrong encryption key (network key) while connecting to the wireless network.

Linksys adapter won't properly connect

Usually the limited or no connectivity is displayed under the following circumstances:

  1. The router and wireless adapter are too far apart.
  2. The network key (ex. wep, wpa, etc) your inputting on the computer is incorrect.
  3. The computer is obtaining the wrong IP address.
Judging by the fact that you already have had a computer connecting to the wireless network , I would assume your problem is going to be related to number 3. To make sure, I would first make sure that the wireless router is giving off a higher signal strength then 1-2 bars in the wireless network box in XP.

To confirm that it is correctly receiving an IP address I would change the connection to DHCP, which means the router assigns an IP address to the computer automaticlly. Here aree the instructions to do so....
  • Double click on the icon for the wireless network on the bottom right corner
  • When the box opens , click "Properties"
  • On the next box , double click on the line that says "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
  • Next click on the radio button that says "Obtain an IP address automaticlly (DHCP)"
  • Then click on the radio button that says "Obtain DNS server address automaticlly"
  • Now try connecting to the wireless network, that shoud fix you up.
Also if that does not work , you can try this YouTube video which is great refrence for fixing a connection. Best of luck!

Tiscali wirless connection issue

Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.

You can however just use a static ip address.
First of all find out the network address in use.
eg. - -
to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig

1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Click Network and Internet Connections. 4. Click Network Connections. 5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of to For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:
