Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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? Comments:

Did you configure security on the new router? If so, it probably defaulted to WPA which is not supported by the 2662W. You could switch to WEP but it's really no better than no security.

Another possibility is that the router is not configured to support 802.11b which is the only protocol supported by the 2662W. If this is the case, you will need to allow 802.11b.

A better solution in either case would be to get a new wireless card for the desktop. The one you have now is very outdated both in speed and security ability and a much better one can be had for as little as $10.

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.

You can manually go into the network settings and delete the old network configuration, and set up a new one. If all else fails, go to your desktop (which I am assuming connects OK) and check the settings on it, and use those to set up the laptop. Hope this helps

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

Wireless printing


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.

Getting wireless computor and router back on line with desk top computor


1. Disconnect power from your modem and router
2. Connect an ethernet cord from your modem's ethernet port to your router's Internet or WAN port.
3. Connect another ethernet cord from a port on your router (labeled with a "1" above it).
4. Connect power to your modem and router.
5. I'm a little unsure about how you plan to connect your wireless computer to the router. The router you selected when you created this question is not wireless-capable.

If your router is wireless-capable, go to the wireless computer. Follow the instructions for your operating system below.

Windows XP

1. Right-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop, and select Properties.
2. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection.
3. Right-click on View Available Wireless Networks.
4. Double-click on your network from the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).


Windows Vista

1. Click on the network icon on the lower-right of your screen (it should look like two computers with one behind another. It might have a red "X" over it.)
2. Click "Connect to a network" (it also might be labeled "Connect or disconnect")
3. Double-click on your network from the list (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name.

Mac OS X

1. Click on the AirPort menu in the upper right of your screen (it looks like "("s turned on their side).
2. Click on your network in the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).

Wireless router


Yes, you can use wireless router with the modem. I guess the actiontech DSl router that you have is also Wireless one. If so, you can use just the DSL router for wireless connection. If you really want to use Dlink router with it, Connect the ( WAN port ) of the Dlink router to the ( LAN Port ) of the Action tech modem [ modem(LAN)-->Dlink(WAN) ]. Once you do this connection, better to do power cycle ( unplug the pwr to the dlink first, then, disconnect the pwr to action tech - wait 1min and plug the pwr to modem, wait for DSL light to be solid , then put the pwr back to dlink ). Make sure DSL light on the modem solid, internet light & WLAN light on the link glowing.
- Make Hardwire connection between the computer to Dlink and check the ip address on the computer whether it acquires the ip address from Dlink and then check the internet connection on the computer, it has to work. if computer not getting ip from dlink, try restarting computer.
- If hardwire connection on the dlink works fine and check the wireless connection.
