My friend gave me this dell 2350 router, and I hook it up just like the disk says (not that I need it to show me). The computer won't recognize or can't find the router. Does any one know if this router will work with vista. All the necessary lights light up, and flicker on the router but no Internet

Re: computer can't find the router
Configure your router first, by doing that you need a ethernet cable (cat 5 will do). Connect your computer to your router using ethernet cable and open internet explorer, type in the ip address of your router and press enter. After that, you will be ask for username and password, just key in your username and password (if you cant remember, reset your router and key in the default username and password of your router). Once your done, go to internet setup and you can configure everything there. Hope it helps you.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the
router is there any computer connected to the router ? If yes then you can open the router set up page on
that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check
all the wireless settings of the router.
once you get the wireless settings of the router, you can try to connect to the wireless network.
You really don't need the setup disc to setup a router of any kind. First you need to plug the computer into the router via ethernet cable. Jack into one of the numbered ports on the back of the router. Once Vista receives an IP address, click start then type cmd and press enter (this opens a command prompt). Type ipconfig and note your default gateway. This is the IP address you will need to type in to Internet Explorer. After sucessfuly doing that it's probably going to ask you for some login credentials. Check your user manual for the user name and password. After logging in, set your router up as needed.
Well, if the computer is not too old, and hasn't been messed with too much, Try this. When you turn on the computer, as soon as the dell logo goes away, you should see a blue bar across the top that says dell.com. Hold down the RIGHT control key and hit F11 a few times. If all goes well, voila, Dell System Restore. This is the best way to do it, since it will reinstall all of the drivers and everything for you. HOWEVER this will erase EVERYTHING on your drive before reinstalling, so you will lose all of your data.
First try to check if your router is really configured correctly. Then try to check your banwidth, because bandwidth can also make your computer freeze. Then check also your cable if it is ok. Then try also to check the disk space in your computer because if your disk space is full or almost full it can also make your computer to freeze.
