2 Answers

Wireless help Hello,I have an existing wireless network in our house, this PC is connected to the wireless box via a cable but i would like to put my laptop onto our wireless network. I installed a net-gear wpn111 on my laptop, the installation was fine and it picks up and connects to our network, but for some reason i still cant get onto the internet. Internet explorer just says its not connected but in the bottom right it says it is. I have made sure that my ip is automatically found, but that's as far as my knowledge goes. any help would be very much appreciated. thanks, Tom Hilton

Hi Hilton
Have you:
               enabled security on your router? If so, the card should be configured the same. Sometimes disabling the Windows firewall helps, but do enable it again after finding out if that's the prob.
               entered the correct username and password?
               tried using  the ethernet cable to try to access your Local Area Network, remembering to enable your nic card?
                tried disabling, then enabling the wireless card? Sometimes that helps.

  Hope the above helps

How connect to internet?

First you should check what kind of connection you have available in your home or office.
If you have a wireless connection, (and your computer has wireless capabilities)* then all you have to do is identify your network and enter the password. Try accessing the networking options and selecting "connect to an existing network". Most of the times, the password is written between brackets "[ ]" in the router or modem that was installed in your house.
On the other hand, if you have a wired connection available, you should try to connect the ethernet cable in your computer and then select the same option (connect to an existing network). This one should have no password. An ethernet cable is like a telephone cable, but wider.
Good luck!
* you should check this on the manual / specifications.

Reboot the box, it may help. I happened to me before. are you connect to rourter via wire or wireless? Once the box finishes reboot, try to ping from your pc to see if you get reply. If you don't, then you might need to call isp, they will remotely test the box for you. Good luck

I want to set up a network using a N600 as router (connected to my cable modem im my office room) and a N300 in my living room to connect my DVR box and Blu-ray player, im finding problems in connecting...

Some routers won't allow wireless repeating (which I think is what you are trying to do). Some powerline adapters would be the easiest way to solve this as they work through your electrical cables. Plug one in where you already have a network connection and the other where you want it. You can then connect the cable to the N300 (provided it has multiple ethernet ports) and then connect the rest of your devices to the remaining ports. You'll need to do some googling to configure the router correctly.

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.

I have a wireless g pci adapter and it is installed on a computer running windows 2000 server. It is supposed to receive the signal from the wireless router wrt54g. It does not find the signal but somehow...

Hi, did you run the CD before you connected the adapter? I know the box says 'easy, no set-up' but there usually is a CD that needs to be run BEFORE connecting the device. If thats done, try bringing up the 'connect to a network' interface, selecting your network and click connect. If you have set up a wireless security password, enter it and click connect. The network cable unplugged is normal when you are running a wireless setup. I hope this is of some help.
