    It was unsecured at first but It did not find it at all when unsecured so changed it to WEP key and netbook can now find the network but would not connect. It says connecting . . . .then closes with no msg to say what the problem is.

    The wireless card has no error on device manager either.



    Router has no mac address entered



    Have another wireless laptop that found and connected no problem, with WEP key and the netbook will connect through ethernet cable.

    OK, next step would be to try and connect this Avent laptop to another router, say a free wi-fi @ Sheetz or Panera or some nearby hotel that offers free wi-fi. This will test out the card and the Avent laptop to see if you can connect. It doesn't sound like it is your router since you said another laptop connected wirelessly to the router.

    Can a different laptop or wireless device log onto that Zoom router? If not, login to the routers admin section and verify that the router has not been locked into only allowing certain MAC addresses. If all else fails, reset the router back to factory default and try again, but try before setting up your security. Once the Avent connects, then go back and secure your router (which of course means that you must reconfigure the Avent to connect to the now secured connection). Good luck.

Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

I think there are 6 ways (at least?) to connect this printer:
(1) Direct to Mac (or PC) via USB Cable (2) Direct to Mac (or PC) via Ethernet Crossover Cable(3) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC also via Ethernet to router/switch(4) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC via WiFi (802.11 wireless)(5) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC via Ethernet to router/switch(6) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC also via WiFi.
As (1) should be simplest, tried this first. First document would print instantly and completely, next doc would hang in queue with unexpected msg, "Printer is offline." Only way to print 2nd doc was to power cycle (off-on) the printer. This problem occurred whether 2nd doc was sent to printer before or after 1st doc had printed. Tried 2nd USB cable, tried new driver, tried reinstalling printer; same problem. Spoke to both Samsung and Apple support, including both on a conference call; never got this to work and never clarified if problem was in printer hardware/software, driver, or something else. Both companies now showing this issue as unresolved.
Nothwithstanding USB problem, did succeed in modes (4) and (6), although custom wireless config needed since my network does not broadcast SSID and requires an encryption password. Procedure required connecting first via Ethernet, obtaining Configuration Report by holding down orange button for 5 seconds, then using browser to connect to the printer's IP address. Also required different driver for wireless config (as opposed to USB).
Bottom line: What seemed simple - USB direct connect - proved unworkable, but wired and wireless network config works fine.

Hi,

It's not really required to plug in your PC via ethernet cable to the wireless router in order for you to configure it. It is however, recommended to connect it via ethernet cable initially so that when you changethe wireless settings on the router you wont get disconnected. Please note, that when you connect your PC wirelessly all wireless settings should match (Wireless Name/SSID, Wireless Security (WEP/WPA keys or passphrase), Wireless MAC Filtering).

Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting


Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:

1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.

2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.

Wireless configuration


What you will need: Wireless router and a wireless adapter connected to your PC. This is assuming you have a broadband internet connection. Install the wireless router by taking the ethernet cable out of the back of your computer and placing it in the WAN or internet port in the back of your router. Install the wireless adapter inside your PC. Unplug your modem for a minute or so. Then plug in your modem and your router, then turn on your PC. If you are running XP, it should see a list of wireless access points you can access. Select the one for your router (should be the strongest) and hit connect. This will connect you to the wireless router and the internet. Note this solution assumes the following: You have a high speed internet connection, your ISP's modem is connected to your computer via an ethernet cable, and you are running windows XP.
