If you are using NAT then have the router only assign a limited number of IP addresses. If you are not using NAT then doing so can help to limit the number of users. keep in mind though that the router is slower than the PC when refreshing IP connections. So if a PC loses it's connection you may not be able to log back in for several minutes to several hours.

Wifi wont connect. finds connection but says it cant connect when attempted


If the problem is with the PC
  • reset wifi switch
  • If that doesn't fix the problem, reboot.
  • That didn't fix it, either? Okay, time to make sure you're connecting to the right network and using the right password. Click the Wi-Fi icon in the notification area for a list of available networks. Yours should be there, and it should say "Connected," but it probably won't.
  • Attempt to connect to the network, and make sure you have the right password. When typing the password, be careful about letters and numbers that look alike. It's easy to mistake the number 1 with a lowercase L or an uppercase I . And an uppercase O can be mistaken for the number 0.
A few other things you might try:
  • Look at the bars next to the network's name to make sure you have a strong signal from the router. If you don't, try moving to a room near the router.
  • Use Windows' diagnostics. Right-click the network icon in notification area and select Troubleshoot problems. Then go through the wizard.
  • Turn off your firewall-temporarily, of course-and try again. If it works, figure out what's wrong with your firewall settings.
If the problem is with the network Try rebooting the network. Unplug the modem and router, wait a minute, plug them back in, wait two minutes, and try again.
If that doesn't help, try connecting the laptop to the router via an ethernet cable. That will tell you if the problem is with the router's Wi-Fi. If it is, go into your router's settings (if you don't know how, check its documentation) and change the Wi-Fi channel.

Tip

Secure your Wireless Router - General Guide


How do I secure my wireless router? A general guide

To set up wireless router security, there are four main steps, which are the same for most routers. These are:

1) Login to your router, using a wired connection
2) Change the router login password
3) Change the network name (SSID)
4) Enable WPA encryption.

This is a very general guide, which will use the Netgear DG834G wireless router as an example. As every router is different, you will need your user manual to get the most out of this tip. (If you need help with finding a manual, see ‘How To Find a Router Manual’).

Here are the details:

1) Login to your router, using a wired (Ethernet) connection.
Make sure you have a cabled connection to your router. Then open a web browser, and type the router’s IP address into the address bar. For example, this is http://192.168.0.1 for the Netgear DG834G (Note, there is no ‘www’).

Enter username and password at the prompt.

Netgear DG834G: the defaults are username: admin and password: password (or, for UK Sky users - username: admin and password: sky). Other routers – common usernames are admin or blank: common passwords are admin, password, 1234, or blank.

If you log in successfully, you should then see the router configuration screen.

2) Change the router login password.
To change the router password, find a menu option such as Setup, Tools, Administration, Basic Settings, Management, or Utilities. On the Netgear DG834G – this option is under Maintenance > Set Password.

Set and confirm a new login password. Click ‘Save/Apply’ when finished.

Tip: Write the router login password on a label, and stick it to the router.

3) Change the SSID (network name):
The SSID or Network Name is the name you see when you are looking for an ‘available wireless network’.

To access this setting, find a menu option such as Wireless, Wireless Security, Security, or perhaps Advanced Settings. For the Netgear DG834: the Network Name/ SSID option is under Setup > Wireless Settings.

Change the SSID from the default, to anything you like. It is case sensitive, and you can use up to 32 letters – but do not use something that could identify you, or your location. Click ‘Save’ or ‘Apply’ when finished.

4) Enable WPA encryption
Find the Wireless Security or Wireless Encryption Options section - often in the same section as the SSID (eg for Netgear – it’s still in Wireless Settings).

You may have a number of encryption options. Select WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK (good choices to start with).

You then need to enter a network key. The box to enter this may be labelled Network Key: it may also be labelled WPA-PSK, WPA Shared Key, PSK, Security key, Passphrase, Pre-shared key, Authentication key . On the Netgear DG834Gv3 it is labelled ‘Network Key’.

The network key should be a long password, or passphrase, between 8 and 63 letters/numbers long. This can be any series of letters/ numbers, or you can use a phrase with numbers - eg, 451ThisisGooDFunforgEeks7899. It is case sensitive. (If you think your connection is likely to be hacked, pick a very strong network key.)


Note down your network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. Click ‘Apply/Save’ when finished.

That's it - you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.

There are further security options to enable if you wish, but these three are the most important.

When you next connect wirelessly, you should see your wireless router with its new name in the 'available wireless networks'. When you attempt to connect, you are asked for the network key you set in Step 4. If all goes well, you can then save this and will connect automatically in future.

If you get stuck with any of this, consult your manual, or post on Fixya. Good luck with securing your router.

A word about WPS: WPS is a shortcut method to help you implement security on a wireless router. Consult your user manual if your router is WPS enabled, and you prefer to use WPS.

I have a linksys befw11s4 router, and a verizon 6100G modem. I'm so confused I did what i had to do to get the router and modem activated and logged on to my router "192.168.1.1" then...


You will need to get the right User ID and Password before proceeding.

Also make your Verizon 6100G LAN port is connected to your BEFW11S4 WAN port.

Two pc connection by dlink switch


connect the router to the switch using any port-it does not matter which port you use. Connect each computer to any port on the switch-it matters not. The router will assign IP address to the computer as they are added.

DONE!!!

Good Luck

One static IP has internet. how on a LAN?


Hi,

You need two network adopters in your system.
Connect Internet connection in first Network card and from the other network card give it to your Switch or hub
If you are using XP system you can use Internet connection sharing to share the internet in your LAN systems.
Follow the steps to enable using ICS

1.Enable Internet Connection sharing in the LAN properties in the first network card.
2.Now your second network card automatically get an IP address in the range of 192.168.*.* series
3.Connect other systems in the LAN and make sure the system has selected Optain IP atomatically from DHCP.

You are all set.

There is also an advanced way to setup this .
Install IPCOP firewall in a system with two network cards and u can share the internet with the firewall settings

make sure wireless switch is turned on in the laptop. it would be great to know what type of operating system you are using on this laptop. if it's XP, go to network connections on the control panel, right click it then view available wireless networks, you should be able to see your 2wire network. if it's on vista, go to start, connect to, then choose your 2wire network. if you're running Mac, click on the airport icon, then select the 2wire. all these things will let you type in a security key, just type the nos. enclosed in brackets at the bottom of your 2wire modem (just below the serial nos.)

Be sure that you only enter the password admin - in small letters. The user name shuld be left blank (empty space).

This should work UNLESS you (or someonhe else) previously changed the password. Is this a brand new unit? If someone changed the password, you'll have to use the new password.

What Version is the the router? Did you buy it from a store?
