How can i connect my samsung tablet to my wireless internet?


I assume you are either unable to see your network listed or when you select your network from the list of active Wi-Fi Networks within range of you device and depending on security level no password or the Security Key you have doesn't work. First, make sure you have a few pieces of information: 1) The SSID or name of the network 2) The security type and password 3) If no DHCP service you'll need the ip address subnet and an available address for your device, ip address of the gateway/router, & ip address of the DNS servers. Usually the router provides DHCP and provides all of the addressing information.

Typically, you are provided the SSID and a security key or password. On your tablet open settings and turn Wi-Fi in necessary and look for your SSID in the list to the right. If your SSID is not shown verify the name, that the router is on and you are within range. Be aware of obstructions between you and the router. My Pool House is a virtual dead zone due to some electrical wiring on the wall it shares with the office. The router is less than 5 feet away, but the signal is unreliable. If everything is working and still no SSID on list, then it may be hidden. Simply, select Add Wi-Fi Network at the bottom and enter the SSID (Netgear987), security type (WPA OR WPA2 typically) and the password (PASSWORD maybe case sensitive). If it connects and fails to obtainan ip address or just drops it may indicate another layer of security that requires each device MAC ID is added to the list of authorized devices for that router. Your MAC ID is listed on the Settings_About Device_Status screen WiFi MAC Address: (F7:C7:AE:78:E6:FC). Sounds like a lot but usually verified SSID and password do the trick. Good Luck

Ps 3 can't obtain IP address


You will need to reset your modem. Are you using wifi or ethernet?

Simple unplug your modem for a few minutes and then try again.

If this doesn't work, you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider.

How do I secure the router so that no one else can access it? model Dlink - DIR-615 Bruce


You should follow the next steps:
1. Log in via http://192.168.0.1
default username: Admin (use admin if it doesn't work) password: (leave it blank with no password) ----- 2. Go to setup tab ----> internet ----> internet connection wizard 2.1 CHANGE PASSWORD ! click next 2.2 choose time zone. 2.3 Configure your Internet Connection DHCP Connection (Dynamic IP Address) Choose this if your Internet connection automatically provides you with an IP Address.
2.4. press "clone your computer's MAC address" ; hostname: 'your computer name'
3. Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ----> Wireless Network Setup Wizard (after this we're gonna do manual settings) 3.1 give your network a name= SSID 3.2.Automatically assign a network key (Recommended) and chose WAP or WAP2 3.3 Write down the network key Or do printscr and save this page.
You can leave it here, but it's better if you continue with the next step: -----
4. Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ---->Manual Wireless Network Setup 4.1
Wireless Network Settings Enable Wireless : ALWAYS Wireless Network Name : (Also called the SSID) the name you gave in 3.1 802.11 Mode : chose "mixed 802.11n,g and b" Enable Auto Channel Scan : YES Wireless Channel : AUTO Transmission Rate : BEST (Mbit/s) Channel Width : AUTO 20/40 MHz Visibility Status : !!!Invisible!!! (so that no outsiders know your SSID except you)

4.2 Wireless Security Mode : WPA-Personal
4.3 WPA mode: WPA2 only Cipher type: AES Group key update interval : 3600 seconds
4.4 Pre-Shared Key : the one that you generated in 3.2.
-----
Now you're all set, but you can't see your network from your PC (as you set it to be invisible in step 4.1). Now you'll have to set it up manually (the specific instructions will depend on your operating system) You'll need to enter the following date when you set it: your SSID name that you entered in 3.1 wireless security: WPA2 personal type: AES enter password that you've generated in 3.2 (or 4.4).

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: hi my ps3 wonk connect wirelessly keeps asking for...


if your home is set up with wireless router and your computers are connected online wirelessly read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you other wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network will probably not do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such and so should yours be.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network security setting, and the password of your home network.

Dell axim x51 will connect to to wifi hotspot i need detailed instructions to get it to work


Hi, follow the steps found in your owners manual. That can be downloaded at this link.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/aximx51/en/om/om_en.pdf

Using Wi-Fi (802.11b)
Wi-Fi provides your device access to WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network.)
Short for wireless fidelity, Wi-Fi refers to any type of 802.11 network,
whether 802.11b, 802.11a, or dual-band. Wi-Fi certified products from
different manufacturers are interoperable.
NOTE: Mid and High configurations of the Axim have Wi-Fi 802.11b built in and the
drivers factory installed. For a Low configuration device, you must purchase the
802.11b SD card, insert it in your device, and load the drivers.
NOTE: The default Wireless Networking Client utility for your device is the
Dell WLAN utility. The following configuration steps are for the Dell WLAN utility.
Configure wireless networking for your device in one of the following
scenarios:
• Network Card is set up
• Wireless Network is broadcasting SSID
• Wireless Network is not broadcasting SSID
If the Network Card is Set Up
Normally the internal wireless card is already set up. There are times when
you must choose the network card. On the Axim X51/X51v configurations
that have built-in wireless, the network card is associated with the enabled
wireless. If wireless is not enabled or you are using a socket card for
wireless connection, then choose the network card:
1 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
2 Tap Network Cards.
3 Choose either Internet or Work from the menu.
4 Choose the network card to connect to the network. For the
Axim X51/X51v with built-in wireless, choose Dell Axim X51/X51v
WLAN Wireless Adapter.
5 Choose whether the network card assigns an IP address or receives an
IP address automatically.
6 Enter the Server IP addresses if required and tap OK.
If the Wireless Network is Broadcasting SSID
1 Press the wireless button to enable wireless capability. The green LED
in the right top corner of the device indicates that the wireless
is functional.
2 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
3 To add, edit, or delete a profile, select the corresponding action and
tap Network Cards.
4 In the Configure Wireless Networks window, select one of the available
network names and tap OK.

If the Wireless Network is Not Broadcasting SSID
The Configure Wireless Networks window only shows wireless networks
that broadcast a Network Name (SSID) and those that have been added.
Add the network if it is not listed. Contact your network administrator for
the following information:
• SSID (network name)
• Authentication
• Data Encryption
• Keys (if the key is not provided automatically)
• Log in if necessary
To configure the wireless network:
1 From the Configure Wireless Networks window, tap Add New.
2 Provide the Network Name (SSID).
3 Select either Internet or Work in the Connects To box.
• Selecting Internet allows you to connect to your network but you
will have to manually start a VPN connection, if needed.
• Selecting Work automatically starts a VPN connection any time
you connect to the network.
• If you are having trouble connecting to your network, change the
Connects To box to Internet.
4 Tap the Network Key tab.
5 Enter the Authentication and Data Encryption information. If a key is
required, enter the network key.
6 Select the 802.1x tab.
7 The Authentication and Data Encryption chosen on the previous
screen determines whether this screen is available. If available choose
the EAP type used on the network.
8 Tap OK.
9 If more than one network is listed, tap and hold the stylus on the
network name you want to connect to. A pop-up menu appears.
Tap Connect. After a few seconds you should see Connected next to
the wireless network you selected.
Thank you,
lee

      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
    • WEP or WPA Security Key
      If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.
    • MAC address
      You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC address) of your PlayStation 3 into your WAP if it is required by your network settings.

I have a ps3 and when i try and connect it, It wont let me and i dont no my ip address or subnet mask or default router or primary and secondary DNS can someone help me and im using wireless


To make things easy, you can set your Playstation 3 to obtain all the network information automaticlly. All you would need to provide is the SSID (Name) of your wireless network and the encryption password (if you have one enabled).

On Your PS3:

"Goto settings

Goto network settings

Goto network connection, select enable

Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
Push yes when it says you may be disconnected

Select wired or wireless

For wireless use scan or enter manually

Follow on screen instructions.

Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right

Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit. "

Wireless installation for DCS-5220


Plug in the network cable first and make sure the following settings are correct:

1. SSID is the same and set to broadcast
2. You are using the same WPA AES password as the router (or WEP password if you are using WEP)
3. The wireless antennae is connected
4. The camera is located not to far from the router

After that, remove the network cable and restart your camera.
