Re: wireless internet access

I was having this problem on my macbook when using WPA encryption. Switch the router to use WEP and it should be fine.

I have just purchased a belkin enhanced wireless usb adapter N 150, i have managed to install the software and and connect to my router, the signal strength is strong, but when clicking on to internet...

Take an Ethernet cable, and connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-port on your computer. If you cannot get Internet access, then it is the router that is the problem, namely, that the 'WAN' side of the router has not connected to the Internet.

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...

More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

I have a WCG200 linksys but can not go onto internet.

from what i have read, your router is broadcasting a signal, and your modem has an open and active internet gateway.

pls make sure that the connection from the modem to the router are correct. the modem should be connected in the port with the label internet. you may have to reset your modem AFTER you have connected the wireless router to allow the router to be assigned an ip. now with the wireless router and broadband modem connected, you can connect to the network and access the internet. pls repost if you hit any snags
GOOD LUCK and PLS rate this post.

I can't hook my computer up to my phone line for internet. I have my router and another desktop hooked up to the phone line through the router.

That modem is in itself a router. However it only has one Ethernet port and no means of broadcasting a wireless Internet Signal which makes its function of a Router somewhat useless. What you need a(n) (wireless) access point. The Access Point will give you more Ethernet slots allowing more computers to be connected to the modem/router via CAT5 (Ethernet) cables. Depending on if you get a Wireless access point or not you might also be capable of using a wireless adapter to connect to the 2wire and get Internet access.

Let me know if I need to clarify any of the points above or if I can assist you further.

I prefer to test these problems in a step by step manner.

Have you tried to connect either the laptop or any other computer to the internet using an ethernet cable instead of wireless?
If so could the wired computer use the internet successfully?

If so skip down to Wireless Considerations

Can you provide a web link to your internet service providers (ISP) help or support web site? If necessary will you provide you location city and state if required to access the ISP's help/support site?

Can you confirm the make and model of your router as a Netgear WT624SC?

Wireless Considerations

Can you provide the manufacturer and model of your wireless adapter or the model of the Mac Laptop if it has a built-in wireless adapter?

Given that you now have a wireless network are you interested in discussing security options to protect you from people accessing your wireless network from outside your home? (if the signal is strong enough -- from inside home I can see two of my neighbors wireless routers not to mention my own)
