Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router

I have cable modem connected to my desktop with XP installed on it. Internet was working fine in that time. How I bought laptop and Belkin wireless G router because I want to have internet on my laptop (with Vista on it) in other part of the house. What I can see now is that every time I connect to the network with my laptop I lose internet connection (after a few minutes of surfing sometimes few seconds) and on the connection icon it says just local only, in the same time I don't have internet connection on my desktop too. When I turn off my laptop and then turn off both modem and router and then turn them on I got internet again, sometimes it works again after just running the Belkin setup program in my browser and cloning mac address, setting connection type to dynamic IP address... everything like it says in setup guide. Laptop have integrated on it Intel pro wireless n card if this information helps.

    And one more thing that I have just discovered. When I turn off desktop computer and try to connect to internet just on the laptop everything works fine, so I guess that problem shows up just when both desktop and laptop are on the internet. Any solution?

    It works when I disconnect the modem and connect it again, but the same thing happens now after two hours or so and then I lose internet again. Could the problem be that I use before on the same laptop linksys wireless g router on another cable modem?

If you have your desktop connected to your cable modem, you must not have a router. You need to purchase a router to use both computers

Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.

I have a dell desktop and laptop. I have satellite internet and a Linksys router. My desktop is connected to the internet modem. I have installed the router on the desktop, connecting the modem cable to...


As long as the router has wireless antenna's on it or indicates it is a wireless model then all you need to do is turn on the wireless function of the router. You do this by access the router, open a web browser and try either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.0.100 one of those should be your router. Log in and go to the wireless settings. There you can enable it and configure it.

From there, as long as your laptop has a wireless network card built in, it will see the wireless network and you can just connect to it...

Thanks!

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
