Can you connect screen I see in right side of your photo to vga output on laptop and use FN + F5 to switch windows output to secondary VGA device. IPad should connect to Wi Fi but not to Laptop.
Is the router wi fi if it is not plug laptop into ethernet port via cat5 ethernet cable . Do you have a DSL modem you need one to hook up DSL and then Ethernet cable to Router. Also DSL filters are needed on Phones or faxes .

    You need to connect directly with the router to interface with it if the wi-fi is not working or you have security set on the wi-fi.

    Add a CommentOnce connected directly laptop to router go to Programs accessories dosprompt and type in ipconfig . Note the IP address issued to your laptop. then change the last number to 1 . So if you had 10.0.0.2 you would type in 10.0.0.1 into the internewt browser and talk directly with the router and see its settings..

    if there is a password on your belkin router try key without a password then go to security settings and see if there is an encryption key set on the Wi FI. Write down the key prhase and the type of encryption used. WPA or WEP . If no encryption is being used it would be a godd idea to set up encryption for security of your Wi-Fi

Some laptops have a switch on them to turn of the Wi-Fi incase you are using your laptop on an aeroplane.

    I've not been feeling well today so I've not dealt with lap tops and earthlink yet
    I will hopefully tomorrow I will feel a bit better
    I'm with lupus and other kinds of autoimmune disorders so I have all sorts that I have to deal in with health
    I wanted to let you know too I found the problem in the scary faces on and in my devises it's called CRT image ghost
    I'm not sure if it's all my issue regarding the scary faces?
    It makes sence though because I have been seeing these faces not quite a year now I did phone apple CC big supervise rat that time when I called I believed I had a virus of some kind and that it's effecting all my devises so it's got to be inside my account it made sence as I was explaining all the details to the woman who answered she at first acted as if she understood what I was saying
    I then was put on hold and a man came and stated his name and who he is
    The woman did not warn me so I was wondering why she left and did not come back? So I had to go through the whole scenario again and I was embarrassed the first time having to tell people your seeing scary faces is a bit strange

SOURCE: How do I connect this router?

You will need at least two ethernet cables like the one that is currently connecting yur PC to your Comcast Modem. Use one cable to connect between your pc and any of the ports labled 1, 2, 3, or 4 on the router. Another ethernet cable should be connected between the modem and the port labeled WAN on the router. Then (if you havent already), turn off the power to all three, the modem, the router, and the pc. then, turn on the power to just the modem and wait until the lights on the front of it stablize (usually about 60 to 120 seconds). Then turn on the router and wait another 60 seconds. Finally, boot up the computer. You should be able to connect to the internet. the next step will be to set up the wireless part of the router.

SOURCE: My 2wire router will not connect to my nintendo ds wifi system.

The DSi only works with WEP encryption. The 2Wire and most other newer routers use WPA encryption.

Simply logon to your router with a web browser. The default IP for it is 10.1.1.138 but it might be different, just check the manual or internet for the IP. Go to "Home Network" then "Advanced Settings" and change the security from WPA to WEP and save.

Thats it!

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425

First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

Im needing help to hook up dsl with earthlink


I am sorry but when starting service with a new I.S.P. for the first time, you must be in contact with them to setup. If you are unable to reach them, I think its clear they do not want your business. Try emailing them if calling doesn't work. If you are having this much trouble just trying to setup with them, I would consider cancelling service. Their is no need to pay for such aggravation. You should be all over this site right now: http://support.earthlink.net/

Every time i hook up the wireless router to the dsl router it doesnt find the internet ( its is a embarq 660 series dsl router and i have a belkin N1 wireless router)


the problem you are facing is due to the double nat issue(the embarq modem provides the ip address in the range of belkin router, that is 192.168.2.1)...hardwire the pc to the lan port of router.
login to the router setup page(type 192.168.2.1 in IE)
in router setup page, click on lan settings and change your lan ip to 192.168.5.1....the problem ll get resolved...if still the status is not connected, switch off the router and modem and switch on it after a minute....it ll get fixed

When I have my router hooked directly to my computer it works fine. When I hook it up so the kids can use their laptops, the speed is very slow.

Can't get a wireless router to work with a speedstream 4200


This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.
