It''s likely tha tthe hotel used the same subnet as your home network but has a different address for the router. This will fix itself once the DHCP lease expires but can be dealt with more quickly by doing the following:

1. Open a DOS command prompt window. If you use Vista, be sure to right click before opening and select "Run as Administrator".
2. Type "ipconfig /release" and then hit return. Wait for the prompt to return, it may be a minute or two.
3. Type "ipconfig /renew" and then hit reutrn. Once you get the prompt back you should be in good shape.

Click on Start > Right Click on "Network" and choose "Properties".
Click on "Connect to a Network" about in the middle of the screen under Wireless networks are available.
Find your router's SSID in the list and Right Click on it and choose "Properties".
Change the Encryption type to whatever your router is set up as. Example: Choose WEP and type in the 64 or 128 bit key that matches to your router.

If you are unsure what security options are set up on your router, please refer to your routers documentation on how to retrieve or change that information.

Want to connect 2 routers to 1 modem


as far as I know it would not work due to auto configuration of DHCP settings in the router when using cable internet. You may have to manually configure this to get it to work. If you are using dsl, I dont think it will work at all.

If it was to work, this is how I would do it:

Using Cat 5 cabling
Modem -> N Router -> G Router

Be sure to plug modem into the uplink port on N router. Then go from port 1 on N router to uplink on G Router. Set both routers to DHCP setting and see if that works. Im going to try this when I get home. It actually sounds ideal, never thought of it myself.

Hope that works for you!

Wireless connection problem


When you say "IP and DNS settings are correct", can you define what "correct" is? IP and DNS settings change depending on the wireless network they're using, so one setting will not work for all networks. The most "correct" setting you can have is probably DHCP - which is called "Obtain IP address automatically" and the same for DNS. If your laptop has any statically assigned IP information, make a note of what they are, and then change it to DHCP and see if you have better luck. If you have statically assigned IP information, it will allow you to connect to the wireless network, but not provide internet access because your IP scheme and DNS settings are wrong. It sounds like the scenario you're describing.

My laptop will connect with the internet though a home router. At a hotel or airport it will not connect with the internet service provided by these places. What is wrong


More information needed:
Does your laptop have a wireless adapter?
How do you connect at home? (wireles or ethernet cable?)
What brand of laptop do you have?
What troubleshooting steps have you already taken?

For your information, when away from your home network, you must change your wireless settings to point to the hotel or airport provider where you are trying to connect.

Usually hotels have some contact information and some basic support (some better than others) for their wireless connections.
