Re: remote access to lacie ethernet hard drive

You will need to open a port on the router first. Maybe 8080 once you get that set you will type the WAN ip and the port number. It will look like this: : 8080
it will then ask for a username and password.

How to resolve "Limited Or No Connectivity Errors" in Windows

When attempting to set up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.

This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
1. Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article 892896 for details on how to work around this error appropriately.
2. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
3. If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
4. If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
5. If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
6. Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
7. If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
8. If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
9. If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
10. If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

How do i connect my desk top to my wireless router

The blue ethernet cable from the modem to the internet port on the router. The other ethernet cable goes from one of the other ports on the router, to the ethernet input on your desktop tower. That should do it.

How do i network my home pc with a wyse terminal.


That makes sense.

1. Physical network - Depending upon the distance between the terminal and the PC you have the choice of either wired or wireless. It is probably easiest as you have wired cards in both the PC and the terminal and the PC to buy a LAN switch, or use ports on your DSL router (I am assuming that they are also connecting out to the Internet?).

so, plug the PC and the terminal into the switch/DSL router using CAT5 Ethernet cables (straight through ones).

Assuming that you have a DSL router that is handing our DHCP addresses, ensure that both the PC and the terminal are both getting addresses via DHCP. You can easily check this by opening up a command (DOS) window and typing ipconfig. Check that you have an IP address on both boxes (typically 192.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x ranges unless default DSL router config has been changed). In the DOS window on the PC type "ping <remote address you got from terminal>" - you should get a response back if all is well.

2. Now you have connectivity between the PC and the Terminal, you need to get a remote desktop capability if I understood you correctly?

You could use either Windows remote desktop (in XP it is called something like remote assistance). I prefer VNC as it is quick, lightweight and free. You can google this and download both server and client apps.

This should get you into a situation where you can remotely control / view your PC desktop on your terminal. You can of course map drives from one to another.

Let me know if the above needs additional clarification, if it helps please leave feedback accordingly

Can't get router to work after disconnection.

Try setting it up as follows, if its not working come back on and let us know.

Plug in the modem power.
Plug in the router power.
Plug in one ethernet cable from the modem to the internet port or WAN port of the router.
If not wireless, plug a second ethernet cable into the "1" port of the router and the other end of that cable to the computers LAN or ethernet port.

Attempt to get on a website.
If this is unsuccessful, restart the modem by unplugging the power cord from the modem, wait 15 seconds, then plug it back in.
Unplug the router, wait for 15 seconds then plug it back in.

Still doesn't work?
On your computer, hit Start>Run>type cmd in the text box and hit enter.
A window will open up with a cursor.
Type ipconfig /release
Hit enter.
Type ipconfig /renew
Hit enter.

Try once again to access a website. If this is unsuccessful, return this site and let us know what steps you have tried.

Hope this helps.

File Sharing between 2 PCs

Very simple.. if you don't have a hub or switch, you need a 'cross over cable' which is similar to a normal ethernet cable, but different pin configuration. With the cross over cable between the two pc's (plugged into the ethernet ports) you have to make sure the windows & any third part firewall is off.. change the IP address & subnet mask to the same subnet.. Eg. Click Start button, control panel, click on network connections, click on the local connection that is in connected state, select properties, find the (TCP/IP) option double click on that, select the 'use the following address' radio button (dot in the circle) then enter a new (ficticious) address like, then a subnet of - Then do the same on the other PC.. except the IP address must be different Eg - There are a number of other ways to do this, but this is probably the simplist. Remember to put the IP back to way you found it, otherwise your internet access may not work when you plug your normal internet cable back in. Remember o turn the firewall back on. Boot the pc's. Good Luck.

Wireless problem

Hello router_lost

I believe you are correct in your assessment that the issue is related to your router. Likely, that issue involves configuration - of your router and/or your laptop computer.

(01) Is the computer that is running Vista connecting to the Internet (via the router) using a wireless network adapter or a wired network adapter?

(02) Assuming that the Vista computer is connecting to the Internet wirelessly, please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and version of your router.

If the Vista computer is connecting "wired" and not "wirelessly" AND you have no other devices on your LAN (home network) that are successfully connecting to the Internet wirelessly through this router, then, it's possible that the router's radio is not enabled. However, if the laptop is "seeing" your router, then, of course, that isn't the case.

(03) Are you sure you are attempting to connect to the correct wireless router from your laptop?

I've seen it quite often where users will think they're connecting (or trying to connect) through their own router when, in fact, the router is a neighbor's (not their own).

(06) You can avoid this possibility by assigning an unique SSID to your wireless radio. In other words, change the SSID (wireless router's "name") to something other than the manufacturer's default SSID. (e.g. Netgear's default is "netgear" and Linksys's default SSID is "linksys", etc.)

It's best, for security purposes, not to assign a revealing SSID (e.g. "TheSmiths" or "2201YourStreetName", etc). Call it "BlueMoon" or whatever you like. Just something unique yet not revealing of your identity or location.

(07) Please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and revision of your router.

(08) Please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and serial number (or service tag) of your laptop computer.

(09) Please, tell us the operating system that is running on your laptop computer.

W/ this information, we'll be able to provide you with specific instructions for correcting your laptop's connectivity problem at home.

(10) Do you know if you have WEP or WPA encryption enabled on the router?

If you do, then you will need to enter either the router's wireless encryption "password phrase" or the hexadecimal key code password in order for the laptop to be allowed to access the Internet. You should only have to do this one time - then your computer will save the information.

If you've been connecting to free networks fine, then you've likely not been required to enter a password phrase or key in order to connect.

Please, post back here w/ answers to the questions I've asked here along with any other questions, comments, and observations you might have. We'll continue to work w/ you on this issue until it's resolved.

Thank you
