You must configure the airport to connect to your router. Make sure to put the network key in. Also make sure that your airport is enabled.

1.Log into router

3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.

When trying to connect my iphone 3g to the wireless router i am getting the error message unable to join the network USR5461 even though I am using the correct password. what do i need to do to correct...


I wonder if your router is set to perform MAC address filtering. If so, you have to either find the MAC address of the iPhone's wireless card and add it to your router's appropriate list, or set your router to not filter by MAC addresses.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

I cant seem to pick up a very strong signal. Do i need an antenna booster?


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arid welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Mac OSX 10.5 doesn't seem to work with Belkin model F5D7230-4


I get the feeling it is a security problem on your wireless access point. Try turning security off temporarily and see if the problem goes away.

The fact that you can connect to other networks tells me that your mac book network config is ok.

The reason the manual ip configuration doesn't work is because wireless connection connection has not succeeded. Kind of like not having the cable connected and expecting to find your DHCP server.

One thing that comes to mind and drove me completely insane once is your wireless network name (ssid) is case sensitive. So homenet is different from Homenet for example and you won't get any decent error messages.

With the security make it as simple as you can then slowly turn stuff back on (WEP and MAC filters for example) until it breakes again. Then you will know where your problem is.

Hope this helps.

Router not seeing internet connection


If you are on cable internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Access the router's setup page using your main PC, under SETUP tab, there's a sub-tab called MAC Address Clone. Enable that and click on "Clone My PC's MAC" then click on Save Settings. Power cycle the router and the modem. You should be online after that.

Can't find wireless Signal


Make sure her router is configured to broadcast the SSID as that can either be disabled or enabled. Once thats enabled and you still cant see it try and set it to different wireless channels and change the wireless network mode to 'mix"

IPhone not pickign up wireless network...


You are right: the phone should default to the wireless. How do you know the iPhone is on your WIFI? Go to "settings, WIFI Networks" and see if there is an IP address assigned by your router. You can't from the icons alone.
