Re: getting on the network
Hi, if you do not want to enter password to cnonect the wireless ipod to the network then you will have to disable the security encryption on the router itself.
Follow the steps below to disable encryption:
1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox). 2. Access the router usually http://192.168.0.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com 3. Login to the router with the User Name as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the username and password is case sensitive). 4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu. 5. Select security options as None/Disable. 6. Apply the settings.
Set the ipod to default setting and scan for the wireless network and connect to the wireless network without encryption.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Future iOS update is going to address this ....in the meantime you need to prevent personal hotspot from assigning dchp automatically by doing the following....
Open "Settings" and tap "Wi-Fi", join the Personal Hotspot wi-fi network as usual
Now tap the "(i)" button to get more information on the network, make note of the network details under "IP Address", including the IP, subnet mask, router, and DNS
Now tap the "Static" tab and enter in an IP address higher in the range than what was set in the prior step, enter the router and subnet mask so it is the same, and set DNS (you may want to use 188.8.131.52 for Google's DNS servers, it's easy to remember and very fast)
You've just set a manual IP with DHCP, circumventing the DHCP servers automatic assignments which seem to be the source of the connection troubles. Exit out of Settings and enjoy Personal Hotspot as usual.
On a side note, you may be able to temporarily remedy the solution by renewing the DHCP lease or resetting network settings on the iOS device, but in our experience it will eventually suffer from the same dropped connection and packet loss. Thus you'll want to go with the static IP approach, it works.
Generally speaking HomeHubs have the IP address 184.108.40.206
In order to get onto the Hub your IP address must be something like 192.168.1.xxx wth a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
To check this go to Control Panel, Network & Sharing Centre and click on the connection you are using. When the status box comes up click on details you will be able to see your IP address, subnet mask, Gateway IP address, DHCP server address etc. If the results do not correspond with the details above, go back to the status box and click Properties, highlight Internet Protocol ver 4 and click on Properties. Here you can change the adaptor properties to correspond with those given at the start, or just click on the automatic options for IP and DNS server addresses.
Changing TCP/IP settings
TCP/IP defines how your computer communicates with other computers.
To make it easier to manage TCP/IP settings, we recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP automatically assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your TCP/IP settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure TCP/IP settings, such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS). To enable DHCP or change other TCP/IP settings, follow these steps:
Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, typeadapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties.
The Network Connection Properties dialog box
To specify IPv4 IP address settings, do one of the following:
To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
To specify an IP address, click Use the following IP address, and then, in the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
To specify IPv6 IP address settings, do one of the following:
To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IPv6 address automatically, and then click OK.
To specify an IP address, click Use the following IPv6 address, and then, in the IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:
To get a DNS server address automatically using DHCP, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.
The Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)Properties dialog box
To change advanced DNS, WINS, and IP settings, click Advanced.
Took another look by fixing word wrapping in notepad.
It's missing DNS Servers. Check your NIC settings and make sure you don't have a DNS server manually set to another IP. Plus, you might try resetting the router to default in case there is a DNS modification there.
I'm not sure if this is the cause, but I couldn't hurt. It's part of trouble shooting.
If you are in a network, you need to have a thing called IP address which is usually assigned by a DHCP server or a wireless access point.If DHCP Server is not available in your case then you need to configure evreything manually.If DHCP server is available then you don't need to configure anything.Just search for the WI_FI signal and connect with it.
For manually configuring Wireless Network Setting
Go to control panel and click "network and Sharing Center", click Change Adapter settings" Right Click on the wireless adapter, Select "properties", click on "Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4)".
Select now use the followinf IP address,
Manually fill the IP address : Subnet mask : Default Gateway:
Select "Use the following DNS address "
Manually fill Preferred DNS address: Alternate DNS address:
For example : IP address : 192.168.0.10 Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway :192.168.0 1
Preferred DNS address :220.127.116.11 Alternate DNS address :18.104.22.168
IP address is needed for communications between devices. subnet mask is needed for identifying your Network Address Node. Default Gateway is usually your Router or Wi-Fi access point IP Address.
DNS address for resolving domain name(mostly for Internet browsing)
I would imagine that you have the desktop wired to the 2wire router... Does the desktop have a static or dynamic IP? If you want it to be dynamic you will have to setup DHCP on the router to give the laptop an IP address... Otherwise set the IP on the laptop to the same subnet that the desktop and router are on, i.e 192.168.1.0... Make sure that the laptop is has a static (doesnt change) IP or its setup to receive an IP from the router or another DHCP server, if you have a DHCP server on your network... To make the laptop a DHCP client, set the wireless NIC to automatically select an IP and automatically select DNS servers, this can be done thru the control panel>network connections, then select your wireless NIC, right-click on it and select properties, on the first page of the properties menu, highlight TCP/IP then click on the properties button and when that screen appears, select the radio button for automatic selection of IP and DNS... if you will not be using dynamic IP/DHCP, you will manually have to enter the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server IPs.... Let me know if this helps or if I can clearify something for you! Best of luck!
Make the Ip address similary to the router, example 192.168.1.25 should work. SUbnet mask will then fill in automaticaly, just leave it then Default gateway will be the routers IP. 192.168.1.1 the dns server would be the ip of your internet provider. I would leave it blank at first, see if it will work then. If not, then ask your service provider for it. If they give u a number, then you will have to go into the router properties, and change the dns and stuff like that in there aswell. good luck
