Problems setting up new macs and a new wireless system with a PC

Hi, I have got a Dell PC currently connected to Tiscali broadband. We have just bought 2 MacBook Pros and want to use these and get rid of the PC. Currently we have a wired broadband connection and I have tried to convert this to wireless from the PC using a Belkin G4 modem router which doesn't seem to work. I also have airport express for the Macs. Should I just start from scratch with the Macs or do I have to get the PC to set up the wireless system first? its a chicken and egg situation and I know very little about IT. All I want at the end of the day is 2 macs that are wireless and no PC but can't figure out what order to do things in - can anyone help?

The MAC address of the network card on the PC is probably registered with Tiscali. The easiest thing to do is to Connect the Belkin router to the internet, then go into the config and clone the MAC address of the windows PC. Once this is done, then you can either plug in the airport express, or configure wifi for the Macs from the belkin.

Hi I'm looking to install a DG834G router to give wireless access but the only instal disc is from AOL and I'm not with them anymore, I have tiscali broadband. How do install the router if it won't plug...


Try NOT using any install disk.

Turn the TISCALI router off.
Turn the NetGear off.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect from the LAN port on the TISCALI router to the WAN port on the router.

Use another Ethenet cable to connect from one LAN port on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the TISCALI on. Wait 60 seconds.
Turn the NetGear on. Wait 60 seconds.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....192.168.123.456
Note that the '123.456' will be some other numbers.
Start Internet Explorer.
Type http://192.168.123.456 (substitute the current values)
Login to the web-server running on the router.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard"
to configure a SSID, an encryption-level (use 'WPA')
and a password for your network.
After the router restarts, you should be able to get wireless access, using the SSID and password that you configured your router to use.

I want to add a laptop - wireless to my current system. I have a linksys G 3.4 GHz. I need help.


Do you know the current wireless card settings that are working on your current system.
All you need to do is to configure these SSID and encryption settings etc on the wireless card on this laptop so it will communicate with the router.
If you have enabled MAC address filtering on the Linksys then you need to add the MAC address of this laptop to the MAC address Filter table in the Linksys wireless settings.
Let me know if you need further help.

Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband


If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

I Cannot connect My Ipod Touch to my Tiscali Router


When you say password for your broadband PC Connection, do you mean WEP on the router?

If you have WEP enabled on your router, then this is the "password" that the iPod Touch is referring to when setting up the WiFi connection on the Touch.

If you are trying to use the password that you have on your PC, as in the Windows Login password, this is not going to work.
