For example, powering device should briefly allow the user to ascertain the networking panel area for ajustments. Especially with new devices, networking panel area should be capable of allowing the user enable recognition of several other devices within the vicinity similar to settings required by having many computers requesting network communications.

a. Prior familiarise with the devices user guides ascertaining about wiifii, wireless feature locations buttons.

For example, the new computer may least attain accessibility another computer in situations that available devices in vicinity are subscriber line networks. What that means is that the local area vicinity computers or telephone devices that are wireless capable are subscriber device least allowing sharing resources. It may be possible in this situation that the new computer recognises available devices however least capable of attaining or displaying resources beyond the browser page.

A modem adds to the interpretation capability of the new computer that may already be internetworking compartible.

How to find the MAC address of a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router


If you have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and you need to find its MAC address for some reason, this article will walk you through the process of obtaining the address through the router's web interface. Other methods may be used instead -- such as Windows Vista's Network Map or a third party utility. (The MAC address is also printed on a sticker on the bottom of most routers, but if the router is hidden behind a computer desk or trapped in a tangle of wires, using the web interface will probably be easier.)

First, open a web browser window and type in your router's local IP address (typically, 192.168.1.1) and hit Enter. When prompted, type in your username and password to gain access to the router's interface.

Once you've logged in, the blue and black Linksys page will appear. Click on the Status tab (the last one on the right).

The MAC address is assigned to the network interface port inside the router, not to the actual router as a unit, so since the WRT54GS has two network interface ports (one for your local area network and one for access outside your network) it will therefore have two MAC addresses.

The MAC address for the port that connects to the wide area network or to your Internet service provider can be found under the Router heading beneath the Status tab. It will be listed below Firmware Version and Current Time, and it will appear as six pairs of letters and numbers separated by colons.

The other MAC address, the one for the local port, can be found under the Local Network heading, and it will be the first item listed there. Typically these two addresses will be very similar -- maybe separated by one or two digits.

Failed to connect to the internet thr wi-fi


f Active Standby is activated on your Cell, your WLAN connection status is always visible from standby mode. The bottom line of the screen shows your WLAN status. If there are no wireless networks in the area, you'll see the message 'No WLAN network found'. If you're near a WLAN that you're not connected to, you'll see the message 'WLAN name found'.

To log on to this network, simply highlight the WLAN status line and press the centre selection key. You'll see three options:
  • Start Web browsing
  • Search for WLAN
  • Switch WLAN scan off

If the WLAN has detected then cell will open, unprotected network (and needs no passcode to access) then simply highlight Start Web browsing and press the centre selection key to go to your Bookmarks page and start browsing the web.

Hope this helps

Why i am not connecting to yahoo web address


if this just happened today and you can access other web sites, could just be a server error. Try to clear the browsing history and cookies, then re-open your browser and test yahoo.com again. If this has been happening for a while and you are on a local area network, check with your network admin as the site may be blocked, verify that your firewall also allows access to the site.

Reset the router for 30 seconds. wait for 1 minute. unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. wait for 1 minute.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

We've got the Dlink DES-1008D setup in our office. Since the past 3 weeks, we've been facing disconnection problems. 5 desktop computers, all new and very recent, are connected to this. We've got an...


Ok, the next time when the disconnection occurs. Try the following:

Open command prompt. And try pinging www.google.com, if the ping is successful and you are still unable to access the internet, then you may want to check the proxy settings on your web broswer, or possibly repair/reinstall the browser. You can also try accessing the internet on a different browser.

If you are unable to ping google successfully, then try to ping the IP address of your wifi modem, this is your default gateway. If you are unable to ping this address successfully, then check the cable from the DES-1008D switch to the wifi modem. As a local area connection 'connected' just shows that the link from your PC to switch is fine.

Please try these steps and let me know the results.
