Base station won't connect to isp

Hoping someone can help me out here. Base Station works as wireless hub (for mac mini, g3 600mhz etc.) ok but does not connect to the internet. I have checked all the cables etc. It just seemed to slow down last night and eventually stopped connecting. I am presently online with the ethernet cable plugged directly into my cable modem.

Change your internal network from 192.168.1.x to 10.0.1.x...many times you find smaller ISP's that use the default address scheme and cause conflicts with the default address used on most routers, etc.

Wireless router configuration


If you don't already have a wireless network, you can use an AirPort base station to create one. To configure an AirPort base station, you connect the Ethernet connection to the WAN port on the base station. In turn, the base station creates a Wi-Fi (wireless) connection to the Internet. Consult the documentation for your AirPort base station for more information on how to set up your wireless connection. Once you have a Wi-Fi network available, use these steps to tell your Mac to join it:
  1. Click the Wi-Fi menu icon airport_symbol.png and select your Wi-Fi network from the list of available networks.
  2. If prompted, enter the password for your Wi-Fi network.
  3. Check "Remember this network" to have your Mac automatically join your home network.

Describe your cannot connect my cga5722 wireless


well you need to reset your router wireless config, your isp dont do this, you need to config yourself, but i give some help. try these manual steps:
4.1 Log on the webpages
Open your Internet Browser
Enter http://192.168.2.1 in the address field
Click on GO
• The following webpage will be displayed
Note
The only default language is English.
To access the required webpage, click on the corresponding tab on
the left side of the page.
4.2
Webpages’ menu structure
The table below describes the menu tree of the webpages.
4.3 ADSL/Internet Settings webpages
4.3.1 ADSL status
Click on "ADSL Status" which is located on the left side of the screen.
SET UP WIZARD Getting started
Wireless settings
ADSL settings
Confirm
The ADSL Wireless Base Station also operates as a wireless access
point, allowing wireless computers to communicate with each other. To
configure this function, you need to enable the wireless function, define
the radio channel, the domain identifier, and the security options.
Check Enable and click "SAVE SETTINGS".
You must specify a common radio channel and SSID (Service Set ID) to
be used by the ADSL Wireless Base Station and all of its wireless clients.
Make sure you configure all of its clients to the same values.
Access Control allows users to define the outgoing traffic permitted or
not-permitted through the WAN interface. The default is to permit all
outgoing traffic.
If the signal strength of a single wireless base station is not sufficient due
to a large coverage area or attenuation due to walls, with WDS the
range of a wireless base station can be extended.
All base stations in a Wireless Distribution System must be configured
with the same radio channel, and encryption type (WEP/WPA) if that is
used.

Airport Extreme Bases Station not detectable with utility


This depends... Reaching them wirelessly may be unreliable for a number of reasons, so, I'll proceed on the assumption that you are attempting to test in the simplest lowest-variable situation:
First, make sure that you have the latest Airport Utility for your Mac.
Connect your Mac to the Airport via a single Category 5 (or 5e or 6) cable. Factory-reset the Airpot and then wake up the Mac. If the utility still can't discover your airport, it's probably time for a trip to your local Genius bar as you most likely have a hardware problem.
Lather, rinse, repeat for each of the two airports.

K, have you tried to ping your base station?
Does your laptop show it finding a wireless connection within range?
Do you have WEP enabled on the router? If so, do you have it locked down by Mac address?

I cannot connect wirelessy to internet on my compaq pressario v6000. The orange wireless light is on and the internet connectivity icons in the task bar have a red cross on them. I have tried all options...


Part 1: Before You Start loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); You need the following: • A broadband connection to the Internet and the appropriate hardware. For example, cable-based Internet access that uses a cable modem that is provided by your ISP. • The Microsoft Broadband Networking Setup CD-ROM. • The Microsoft MN-500 Wireless Base Station. • The Ethernet cable that came with your base station. • The AC power supply. • The blank floppy disk.Check the following: • On computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP, you must be a member of the Administrators group to set up a network. If you cannot run Setup, click Log Off on the Start menu, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then log on with as an administrator. • Turn off any firewall or Internet connection sharing software on your computers. Your base station replaces these functions. The Setup Wizard cannot continue if they are enabled. • Do you have a Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Internet connection or a static Internet Protocol (IP) address? The Setup Wizard prompts you to type your user name, password, and service name for a PPPoE connection. For a static IP address, you must have the IP, subnet, and ISP gateway addresses. If you have one of these types of connections, gather this information from your ISP.
Part 2: Install the Software and Connect the Hardware loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); 1. Insert the wireless base station Setup CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive. If the Setup Wizard does not start automatically, click Start, click My Computer, double-click the CD-ROM icon, and then double-click Setup or Setup.exe. 2. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the software. 3. In the second part of the installation, select the option to set up the wireless base station, and then continue through the rest of the Setup Wizard. 4. When the Setup Wizard instructs you to connect your wireless base station, position the wireless base station close to your modem and computer, and near the center of your intended network area. If you want to set up the wireless base station vertically, attach the included stand. 5. On the back of your computer, unplug the Ethernet cable that connects your computer to your broadband modem. Leave the other end of the cable plugged in to the modem. 6. Plug the cable in to the "To Modem" port on the back of the base station. The base station is now connected to your modem. 7. Plug one end of the blue Ethernet cable that came with your base station in to the Ethernet port that is labeled 1 on the back of the base station. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on the back of your computer. This is the same port from which you just disconnected the modem cable.

Important The modem must use its original Ethernet cable or one of the same type to connect to the base station. 8. Plug one end of the power supply that came with your base station into the power jack on the back of the base station. Plug the other end into an electrical outlet. The power indicator light on the front of the base station should turn on. 9. Return to the Setup Wizard, click Next, and then go to Part 3 of this article.
Part 3: Configure the Base Station and Network Settings loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); Continue to follow the instructions on the screen to configure your wireless network settings: 1. Setup prompts you to enable wireless security (WEP). Microsoft recommends that you enable WEP. 2. Setup prompts you to save your network settings to a floppy disk for use in later installations. A blank floppy disk is provided for this purpose. If you do not save to a disk, you receive a list of network settings to print or write down. 3. Click Finish to exit Setup, and then remove the Setup CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive and the floppy disk from the floppy disk drive. You can use the same CD-ROM and floppy disk to set up additional computers on your network.
Part 4: Test Your Network loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); 1. View the status of your network in the Broadband Network Utility (BNU). Make sure that you can see your base station and the computer that is connected to it in the BNU status screen: a. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then double-click Microsoft Broadband Network Utility. b. View the information on the Network Status screen. 2. If your broadband Internet connection is being shared through your wireless network, start your Web browser program, and then try to visit a Web site. If your network is working properly, you have access to the Internet from the computer you just set up.

Wireless hub


No, you do not have to have the broadband software installed. To access the MS base station go to : http://192.168.2.1/login.htm Using it as a hub and access point requires you to configure is as such. The MN700 can act as a hub/wireless access point using an ethernet cable from your router to the modem port on the base station. The base station has to be setup with the ethernet cable in port 1 on the base station connected to your PC. see "Reconfigure the MN-500 as a Wireless Bridge" in this article. same steps apply for your MN700 http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=102065&prdid=254958 The last step is to reconnect the ethernet cable from the router to the modem port on the MN700.
