Re: New HP laptop wireless connection to BT1800HG router

Hi, Have you tried inputting the necessary security code to your HP laptop? Most if not all BT1800HG wireless router modem comes pre-configured to use a certain WEP code. In your HP laptop go through the WiFi configuration/Setup. Select option to use WEP security, type in required code normally found on the bottom of the BT1800HG. The numbers and/or characters below the bar code is the WEP code. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

He can connect a LAN cable from another RJ45 port on the router to his laptop provided the router has sufficient LAN ports.
He can connect the laptop using a wireless connection provided the laptop has a wireless card.

Wireless security settings on laptop do not match network settings

You will need to change the existing connection to match the "new" settings. I have had this issue with visita as well. If you open the wireless connections, go to advanced settings click on the "saved" SSIDs you can either delete the exisiting one, and start over (easy) or you can modify the settings to match the "new" upgraded system. Visita and XP store these for future use, problem is if one changes it "Doesn't match" so just delete the existing one and recreate it.

If they changed the password for the system or the type of encryption WEP to WPA etc this will correct the issue.
You may want to turn off the IPv6 which can also cause issues with Wifi in some locations.

My wireless internet connection keeps dropping on my laptop from my dlink wbr2310. Any solutions?

Please try resetting the wireless device into factory defaults. Also, try to change the ethernet cable connection from your modem to the wireless router.
From your computer as well, try to delete existing wireless profiles and then recreate a new one for your wireless network.
Kindly provide feedback so that we can isolate further.

Only one of my laptops can access the wireless network. When trying to log on the others we enter the pass word and i say can not connect I have a Belkin G wireless router and a road runner cable ISP

Can you provide details of the other PCs Try the following
1) remove wireless profiles from your PCs and then try to reconnect 2) Log into the router and remove the wireless security and see if the PCs can now connect and if so - try adding security again

Just bought a new PC with Windows 7 and the netgear wireless-g wgr614 router says it's incompatable

are you trying to run CD on new computer ?
You can do it manually without CD.
First let me know, are you trying to install the router OR you are trying to add a new computer to the existing network.
If you are trying to add a new computer to the existing network then you don't need to install the router on the computer, you just need to connect to the network.

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network

Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Cannot connect to the internet with my laptop

To connect to the router wirelessly using a Windows XP, right click on the wireless network connection icon on the lower right corner of the screen and choose view available wireless networks. Select your existing network and click on the connect button. If you are using Vista, go to network and sharing center of your control panel then select connect to a network. If you still having problems, please provide details of the problem like your Internet service provider and if there are already other computers online with your WRT54G2.
