Hey there,

in connecting wirelessly to the router, we need to make sure the encryption on the router.

Access the router setup screen, check the IP address first of the computer.

Open IE type there 192.168.1.1 username is blank and password is admin.

once it is on the setup screen checked the wireless tab and look for wireless security, verify it and try to connect again.

in your wireless computer, right click wireless connection and go to view available wireless network, try to connect - input the network key if in case it is not asking you for it, click the changed the order of the preferred networks and then removed all the preferred networks there, then try to connect again and you will now be asked for a network try to connect and you should be connected then.

Tring to get PC to send signal to hp printer thru belkin N300 router


  • Hook up printer to network.
  • Give the printer a static IP address outside of DHCP scope. (If your network address is 192.168.0.0 typically any address from 192.168.0.1-50 will be. 192.168.0.1 will usually be your router.
  • Install the printer on computer with appropriate driver and install as a network printer, not local.
  • Enter the IP you gave the printer.
  • Done


If your printer doesn't have networking capability let me know and I can explain setting up a printer share.

Make sure the router is getting online. You might have to cycle the power (unplug for 30 seconds and plug it back in) on the router.

Dell latitude E4300 having wireless connection problems and disable and enablewifi i get 169.XX.XX.XX sometimes


The 169.254.x.x IP Address is known as an APIPA address:

http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/A/APIPA.html

In your situation, it is indicating that the system is not receiving an IP address assignment from the Router.

Troubleshooting steps:
  1. power off, then power on the router and the computer, see if the system gets a valid IP address.
  2. Right click the wireless connection, click Repair
  3. Reinstall the wireless driver
  4. try a different wireless network see if wireless works on another network

Cannot aquire ip address from wireless router


Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it. Good Luck.

Your wireless router issues IP address to your computers.
Your wireless card on your downstairs computer needs to be configured to communicate with the router, ie WEP or WAP encryption - if your have enabled it, SSID etc.

To configure the TCP/IP settings on your downstairs computer -
Click on Start - Control Panel - then Network Connections - then right click on your Wireless Network connection - click on Properties.
Then in "This connection uses the following items, scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on Properties. Under the General Tab make sure Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically are selected. Click OK.

If you do not see TCP/IP in the Wireless Network Connection then click on the install button and then install the TCP/IP driver.

IF TCP/IP is OK then before you do the following, turn off or disconnect the power to your wireless router, wait for 1 minute before connecting the power again. Wait till the LED lights indicate that it is on line again and the wireless is on then :-

Click on Start - Control Panel - then Network Connections - then right click on your Wireless Network connection - click on View Available Wireless Networks
Do you see your wireless network (ie. your wireless router)?
If so click on your wireless router and then click Connect.

You can also click on Repair to try to reconnect to your wireless router.
Let me know if it works.

Dell latitude d800 laptop


The problem may be the modem has to assign an IP address to your laptop, what you may have to do is plug the laptop into the modem and see if the laptop recognizes the modem with no errors in device manager,

Next turn off the laptop and modem, reboot the laptop then modem for the modem to assign an IP address.
