I have three computers.
1. A desk top - hardwired to the DSL Modeum & Wireless router (TRENDnet)
2. A HP Laptop XP wireless connected to internet
3. XP desktop in the next room connected with a wireless (SMC 2662W adapter) We have operated for years with a Belkin router.
Recently the DSL modeum kept dropping out requiring it to be rebooted many times a day. AT&T (after sending us a new modeum) determined the Belkin router was the problem. I purchased a new TRENDnet TEW-631BRP router.
Now the #3 computer will not connect. It seems to detect the network system, but will not connect. TRENDnet claims the fault is with the SMC wireless adapter. So, how do I configure the SMC adapter to talk to the TRENDnet router so we can access the internet?

Connecting laptop/computer to wireless router If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem and Internet then -To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
first there should be 2 cables connected the device. 1) power adapter 2) ethernet cable from either a dsl modem or a cable modem connected to the wan connector with most cable modem service its usually dhcp meaning you are always connected to the internet with some there is ppoe connection where a user name and password is used to make a connection to be on the internet with the dsl modem there are some dsl companies that are dhcp just like the cable modem companies. with the ethernet cable connected the wan port on your router there should be some kind of activity light on the router but check with the type connection from your dsl or cable internet provider. also you will need a second ethernet cable to connect your computer to setup and configure the wireless settings and wep protection. need more info?
you should type in 192.168.0.1.
In your request you have:
i can not run 192.168.01 on my computer to change it to ppoe,i have a di-524 dlink and a motorola mstatea dsl modem,the other computers desk top and laptop can connect to the internet,but the one these componets are hardwired to cannot.has worked fine for years but stopped suddenly!!!!!!!!!!!
So you are connecting the DSL Modem output to the D-Link's LAN port 1, right? In this case, you should connect the DSL Modem output to the D-Link's WAN Port, which is between the power input and the LAN outputs.
If it doesn't work that way, check this out: http://www.voipmechanic.com/westelltobridge.htm
The printer has o go through a router to work for the other two computers. The only other solution is setting up a wireless network with internet sharing on a HOC and share all file and printer services though it. The main PC would act as a router. for $40.00 you can buy a router and make it work.
1. On your computer, open IE and type 192.168.1.1.
2. By default there is no username and the password is admin.
3. Once you're in, set Internet connection type to what your ISP requires to have. If you have cable ISP usually it is just set to Automatic configuration-DHCP. If you have DSL ISP, it usually uses PPPoE.
4. But verify it with your ISP.
5. Whatever changes you do on that page, do not forget to click "Save Settings" which can be found at the bottom of the page.
Ok...I am a bit confused. You must have a modem to connect to the internet...whether you are broadband (cable/DSL/wireless), Dial-up or T-1 or higher (TSU/DSU).
This is how it should run once you are sure you have the modem...
Modem....to router...pc to router. If you have no router...then plug ethernet cable from your modem to your NIC card on PC.
You will have to make sure your network card is working (check for flashing green light and one solid green. Then you can goto COntrol panel and run the wizard to connect to the internet...it should work.
What kind of router do you have? Also, what is the model number of your modem?
