You need to give a bit more information as to which OS you are using, if you are using win 7 go to your main machine and click start, and select "control panel" check you are viewing by "category" (top right), then under the "network and Internet" click "choose homegroup and sharing options" near the bottom you will see "view or change the homegroup password", make a note of this exactly as it is caps included, then on the machine you want to include in the network do the same and look for "join a homegroup" and type in the password you got from your main machine. that should sort it. If you get ipv6 errors use google to find the fixit from Microsoft. hope tha helps a bit.

SOURCE: Eee PC 900 has problem with wireless connection

Hi terryandy,

I am using the Eee PC from Taiwan also. It is running good.

Based on your scenario, have you tried changing another new router?

Your description of having "out of range" is highly probable due to router hardware failure.

Try replacing the router and update us again.

Thank you.

SOURCE: Wireless issues with my Dell XPS/Dimension One desktop

Even if it's a new Dell, you may need to update either the drivers for the wireless card or the BIOS.

Also, verify which protocol your Dell is set to use (i.e. 802.11g, 802.11b, auto-select, etc.). Dell may have fixed to to a slower protocol for compatibility.

Wireless driver can not read my wireless router


If you're having trouble with a router, it most likely has nothing to do with your laptop at all. If there is a problem with your laptop's wireless adapter, you may be able to find updated wireless drivers through the laptop manufacturer.

Please keep in mind that a wireless router and wireless adapter are completely different. The router is external and relays the signal from your modem (the internet) to your connected PCs. The adapter is in your laptop and sends/receives information from wireless routers such as yours.

Internet access problem with a Linksys 54g router


Try setting the default gateway on the laptop to the ip address of your ICS gateway machine. Some routers separate the wireless and LAN connections on different subnets.

Try comparing your laptops ip information with that of one of the working wired computers. You can do this by going to Start up to run and type cmd then click "ok"

At the black prompt screen type "ipconfig" without the "".

You want to compare the IP Address, Submet Mask, and Default Gateway.

If one has an ip of 192.168.1.* and the other has 192.168.0.* then the wireless and wired are on seperate networks.

If the subnet masks are something like 255.255.255.0 and 255.255.255.1 they are on seperate subnets. Both should be fixable by putting in the same default gateway.

For example if your ICS gateway is 192.168.1.1 then set that as the default gatway on the wireless laptop. This can be done by going to start >> Control Panel >> Network Connections then right click your wireless connection and goto properties then double click on the "Internet Protocol (tcp/ip)" option. This will list all of your ip information (if its static) if its dynamic (ip gotten from router) you can still click "Use the following DNS server address" and set preffered dns to the gateway ICS ip. Or click "Advanced" and click Add under Default Gateways and add the gateway ICS ip there.

Wireless router blooking


Hi,

You can block other users by enabling the MAC Filter and only accept connections from your PCs MAC numbers.  To determine the WiFi MAC numbers of your PC, click on Start, click on Run, type "ipconfig /all" on all your PCs. Look for the Wireless networking cards and their numbers which should be something like 00:A1:B2:C3:D4:E5. In the Web Configuration of the router, enable MAC Filter and enter those numbers in "Allow". Save and Exit. From thereon only the PCs with the MAC numbers entered would be allowed access to the Internet.

I personally find this preferable rather than WEP or WPA which causes slowdown in WiFi connections.

Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Connections


YES> If you will install a router into your network, it will share the internet conenction among the two computers. Both wireless and wired. So the connection will be from

Modem ----> Router (wireless/wired capable)   ------> PCs (two Pcs both the desktop and the laptop

 

and you can also add up another PC if you want to.
