Try to reset the router by pressing reset button and holding for 20 sec (its a small hole at the back of router).

Then try to setup wireless network.

Hi all I have a Thomson Router ST585v6sl. I can connect to internet via cable but not wireless. Wireless light when you turn router on is red then goes out. I can't find an option in the routers...


i have one try using an ethernet cable and put in on internet explorer

192.168.1.254 That should be the speedtouch routers page
don't click the tabs on the right scroll down and find home networks there should be two options wireless and ethernet along with all the connections click wireless (if you cant click it click the home network tab then interfaces then click your router) then in the top right there should be something called configure now this is how it should be

Interface Enabled : Ticked
Network Name (Your Routers Name)
Interface Type: 802.11b/g
Channel Selection: Manual
Allow Multicast from broadband network: ticked
Broadcast Network name: Ticked
Allow New Devices: New Stations allowed automatically
Encryption : Use WPA-PSK Encryption
WPA-PSK Encryption Key: (Any Password thats memorable)
WPA-PSK Version: WPA

Apply if theres any changes (hopefully) try that if fails try one of these three steps:

1. go on 192.168.1.254 then click the speedtouch tab then click return to factory default settings to return it to the way you had it when you first got it. (WARNING: If you dont have your internet password you will have to call AOL for it)

2. Buy a HomePlug which is an ethernet cable that uses the electric wires in your house (example. http://www.amazon.co.uk/D-Link-DHP-307AV-PowerLine-Homeplug-Network/dp/B003L78F6U/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1298768566&sr=8-11)

3. Scrap the router and try a different one thats what i did well.. my speedtouch kept crashing and i couldnt hack it anymore now i have a new router and it was the best move i did.

Hope it works for you!

How do i change the channels from 1 to 11 on my router thomson tg 585v7


This setting is changed by accessing the router directly. Typically you have to plug network cable into the router directly, access via web browser, and look under wireless settings.
Remember to change system ID to something you would recognize, set access password for the router, and turn on wireless security. LOG ALL passwords.

The channel issue change to 11 is a good idea as many routers compete with wireless home phones for the lower channel numbers, but suffer intermittent failure, not complete malfunction. Good on you for desiring to change to 11 (or so).

If you dial back the security to WEP, does it connect?

Back to WPA though... when editing the Network Connections... Check SSID is correct. Mode "Infrastructure". IPv4 Settings is Automatic (DHCP). IPv6 Settings method is Ignore. Wireless Security is WPA & WPA2 Personal and the password is correct.

Wrt400n connects via ethernet cable, but won't talk wireless


you said every thing that connects with the ethernet is working. that means the wired part of the router is working. check the wireless settings of the router. Open the set up page of the router on the main computer. connect the main computer to the router with the ethernet cable.
change the wireless settings of the router.
WRT400N is a dual band router ( 2.4 GHZ and 5 GHZ)
You can create 2 different wireless networks. Make sure that the names (SSID) will be different for both the networks. For 2.4 GHZ change the standard channel to 6 and save the settings.
Go to wireless security and set the security mode to WPA Personal. set up password for the wireless network. You can use the same password for both the networks. Make sure that the Wireless MAC address is disabled.
Now try to connect to the new wireless network. and see what happens.

Can't connect DSi with same security as comps


hello, yes i had the same problem, but i had it with many other computers, the way i solved it was going into the router settings and click the "restore default settings" then turned the router off for 15 seconds (for a fresh reboot) then when i had to set everything up again i got all my computers on the router and im able to add more without running into that same problem once again, or for a simpler solution try disconnecting the wireless on the computers and replugging them in.... that works sometimes as well

WPA code


use the ip address of the router which by default ( generally speaking ) if you are connected to the router via an ethernet cable will be the ip address for the default gateway.

Login to the router and go to the wireless configuration section(s) and it should state in there what the wpa code / password phrase is
