    Thank you for help but i'm sure fill right SSID because I only use wireless at my area.If I connect to internet normal, my problem won't be SSID or key. I think that the main problem is error hardware and now everything is normal.

    Yes, i sure fill correct SSID because only I use wireless in my area. If i connect to internet normal, my problem won't be SSID or key. I think that the main problem is error hardware because now everything become normal. Thank you for help.

    I would make sure that you are connecting to the Correct SSID when you are on the laptop. Remeber that SSID are case sensitive so you need to make sure that you spell it exactly the same. Also retyping the security key may help.

Check the router interface and make sure that is the ip and subnet you have set for it 10.0.0.2 but you are right if the routers ip is set for 192.168.1.1 the laptop should be also 192.168.1.X

Tip

Setting up Wireless on router and wireless security


For setting up any router you can follow the below simple steps

  1. Connect the router with a power cable and switch on the poser, reset the router with its reset button normally you can find the reset button on the rear side of the router for 30 seconds and then switch off and on the power
  2. After reset conenct the router to any laptop or desktop with a cable and also connect the router to the modem or the internet service provider cable
  3. after all connection lights will come on go to right hand side corner of the computer and check if the network connection is showing connected
  4. Once you are connected with a wired connection open a page of internet explorer and type in router addess normally it will be http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and then type the username and password default usernames and passwords can be found in router manual.
  5. Once the router setup page is open you can confugure the router easily without the CD setup.
  6. The advantage is you do not have to run the setup CD and you can also do wirless settings for your wireless laptops or devices
  7. Go to the wirless settings page and you can select the wireless on and off or you can setup a wireless security to avoide your router with unauthorized acess
  8. I would recomend always keep the wireless network secured if you are using the router for a home or small office as there can be people who will be using your bandwidth for free without your permission
  9. one more tip i would like to give whenever any kind of setup is required on the router do it by a wired connection only and not thought a wireless pc or laptop as it can disconnect you from the router in between of your setup
  10. WEP is the kind of wireless security which is easy to setup and remember and most wireless cards of laptops and computers support it
All the best with your wireless router configuration and security setup

Vikram

Can we use MF6550 for wireless network?


If you use a wireless USB print server like this . Keep in mind that you may not get all functions such as scanning to work but it will allow for printing for sure. If the scanning works consider it a bonus.

How do I connect my netgear router to my desktop internet to use with my laptop. Followed instructions but when cable is disconnect from my laptop I can't connect to the internet


First Connect the Desktop with Netgear Router with the Ethernet cable. Open the Netgear GUI and configure a Wireless Network. Once its configured, switch On the WiFi switch from your Laptop and try to connect your Laptop. Make sure your laptop has an in-built Wifi adapter, if it doesn't then you would need to buy an USB based Wifi Adapter.

Also if you want to use the Internet with your Desktop PC without being connected with the Netgear Router then make sure it has Wireless connection capability.

HAVE TATA INDICOM LG250 MODEM CONNECTED TO MY DESKTOP PC I WOULD LIKE TO CONNECT IT TO MY HP PRESARIO C700 LAPTOP. I HAVE LAN & TELEPHONE CABLE TOO. CAN I CONNECT IT AND ACCESS THE INTERNET?


as long as you have the ports for it yes, are you trying wireless, or a wired connection? depending on how old or new your laptop is you may be able to connect the telephone line right into your laptop, although that would be dial up and very slow so i would recommend using a cat5 cable aka normal internet cable

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 need to know how to get the router to work on my new laptop and desktop


Normally you would connect your DSL or Cable Modem to the WAN or Internet port of your router. Then you will connect your Desktop and/or laptop to one of the available switch ports. They usually have 4 of them. You use standard ethernet cables for all of the connections.

Pc connection problems


Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
