Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Today I bought and installed a Linksys Wireless-N router. Everything is working well (two laptops wirelessly and two TiVo adapters wired), except for my hardwired (via Ethernet cable) HP LaserJet 2420dn printer (which worked fine -- it was hardwired via Ethernet cable with my old wireless-G router). The router is correctly reading the MAC address of the printer, but the printer is "unable to sense net number".

Set the printer up manually with a static IP address. To do so, go to the setup menu under network settings and select manual.

I want to get the TIVO AG0100 wireless adapter. I do not have wifi in my house so will it still work? I'm not planning on getting wireless for my computer.


Dear,
Since it's an adapter and not a router, it will not work if you don't have a previously installed wireless network.
You might buy a wireless router and connect it to your computer and use Tivo at the same time.

Tip

Do you have a Tivo Premier and are you experiencing wireless communication...


Recenty, I discovered that devices were dropping off of my wireless network (Netgear N300 wireless N with DSL modem). After trial and error, the solution to the wireless communication problems was to create a wireless N bridge using the Tivo Wireless N adapters.

To use this feature, you will need two Tivo wireless N adapters. One wireless N adapter should be set to bridge and plugged into an available ethernet port into your router. The second adapter should be set to client and plugged into the ethernet port in the back of the Tivo Premier. Once the power has been applied to both wireless adapters and the Wireless adapter (connected to the router) has connected to an available address on your router, press and hold the button (on top of each adapter) to establish a secure wireless connection between both adapters.

Once each adapter has established communication, you will have a separate 5Ghz Wi Fi signal (as well as a channel )dedicated to you Tivo devices throughout the house. Each Tivo Premier added to the house should have the wireless N adapter and connected using the secure connection to the wireless bridge by pressing the button on each adapter (the one on the router as well as the one on the Tivo to install).

If sucessfully installed, you should be able to connect to all Tivos on the network for management as well as streaming. If communication between the Tivos isn't successful, you will have to restart each Tivo and establish a new connection to the Tivo service.

Another suggestion when using the wireless N adapters is to setup a static IP address on each Tivo that is higher than the IP address assigned to the wireless adapter. Each Tivo utilized two IP addresses for each device (one for the adapter and one for the Tivo). You may have to check the router administration screen to determine the IP addresses used for the wireless adapters before establishing a static IP address for the Tivos. If you assign static IP addresses to each Tivo, you will have to restart each Tivo and reconnect them to the Tivo service to establish proper network mapping.

With this wireless network configuration, you will ensure that your Tivos are connected to the service using high speed, dedicated wireless N communication for streaming purposes between the services offered while not impacting other computers, servers, video game machines, and tablets that are connected into your house.

Since the Roamio uses a built in wireless adapter, you may not have success in adding a Roamio to the wireless bridge created on your router unless you disable the built in wireless adapter and purchase the external wireless N model from Tivo.

Instructions on setting up wireless bridge can be found at this location:

Wireless Router Causes XP PRO to Crash. I just purchase a Linksys WRT110 wireless router and installed it using the EasyLink setup cd. The install went OK but Windows XP PRO immediately crashed and...


Have you unisntalled all the Linksys sofftware through add/remove software. I had a similar problem with an IOGEAR Bluetooth transceiver, I did the setup from the CD, my laptop (Dell C640) blue screened each time. I uninstalled all the IOGEAR software and my laptop stopped blue screening. I never installed the software for a wireless router, I always use the WEB interface and my life is my simplier.

Laptop not seeing my wireless router


Try to manually "Add device to network" by using the wireless setup wizard. Check to see if the Wireless Zero Configuration service is "Running" before trying to add device. Yuo may also want to disable IPv6 in vista tcp/ip properties page.

Wireless router


hi frank its a new thing to have to go out and decide what router to purchase and install i use a linksys and have had good luck with the wireless connection quality . does his laptop have a wireless lan card installed most new laptops do have one but its worth a look to make shure it does. depending on how much you want to spend how far away does his laptop sit from location of router ? if not more than 10 ft go ahead and purchase a cheaper one 60.00 now if you want a better quality one go with the twin antenna linksys for about 130,00 and please make shure that he installs the security software that comes with the router and make a password and secure it for shure .i hope ive helped you decide on what router to purchase they all work fairley good .
