Re: dynex enhanced wireless G USB network adapter

This is not a solution this is diagnosis.

First what specifically fails wireless communication or something else?

Cam you attach with a wire such as an ethernet cable to the router?

If yes was that tested and did it work?

If not you probably have a configuration issue with you ISP on the wan or modem side of the router. Or you may have the gateway address set incorrectly Or you amay be missing DNS addresses to access sites by name.

I will need the ISP's name or support web site address to assist with the above

If the above works on to the wireless connection.

Does the wireless router and wireless adapter (built-in or add-on) share a common communication band (a, b, g or n) if not that is an issue

When attempting to connect can you see your routers name?
Was the name changed from the default to assure it is not your neighbor's router?
Did you apply encryption (WEP or WPA) to either the router or the wireless adapter and not to the other device?
Do you have MAC Filtering turned on in the router and failed to add the MAC address of the wireless adapter?

Please answer the above in a response and I will attempt to provide some additional steps to determine the issue and generate a solution

I have a netgear wndr3400. I have 2 laptops, 1 can connect but the other can't. It says it is connected but to the wireless router but can't connect to the internet. Why can't it connect?

The router has probably provided too many IP address and assigned one out of your range.
  1. Click start button
  2. Type cmd, right click and run as administrator
  3. Type the words IPCONFIG /RELEASE
  4. Let it run until you are able to type again and type IPCONFIG /RENEW
  5. Then when it has renewed flush your DNS cache by typing IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS
If that doesn't work, I would log into the router. and under settings release your IP address or cycle your modem and then your router.

I cannot get webpages but my usb is connected. I am by default using DHCP and have not assigned static IP.. it was working until a few days ago... whats the problem?

You may need to obtain a new DHCP address.

Try to right click on the network icon and choose repair.
If this fails you can force a new DHCP address with the following: (Windows users)
Step 1, Click Start
step 2, Click run
step 3, In the run box type cmd.exe and click OK
step 4, When the command prompt opens type the following.PRESS ENTER after each new line.
ipconfig /flushdns *Press enter *
ipconfig /release *Press enter *
ipconfig /renew *Press enter *
exit *press enter *

Good luck!
Hope this helps!

Can't access internet explorer ip address for Dynex Router

first things first.. if the router is connected hardwired, open command prompt and type 'ipconfig' and than enter, you will get some thing like this
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.
C:\Documents and Settings\Vishal>ipconfig
Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :         IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :         Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :         Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
C:\Documents and Settings\Vishal>
ip address and default getway would be different at your end, type the default gate way in he browser and try to open the interfce.
else use this start --> run --. type "" and than enter. this must work at times.

SENAO wireless adapter not working

I assume you have the unit set to alocate ip addresses automatically in other words the dhcp is set to enabled in the settings. If so it maybe that the address is registering wrong, you can either click start>run> then type ipconfig /flushdns, or uninstal your wireless network card in device manager then restart the pc to automatically install it again as this will set it back to default, but remember to make sure obtain ip address automatically is enabled in the adapters properties on the tcp/ip properties.

Linksys router befw11s4

The easiest way to sort it is to enter your routers settings page in your internet browser or desktop icon and make sure you enable DHCP which will give your pc an automatic ip address. Make sure WEP or similair is off until the set up is sorted out. Next go to your properties of your wireless adapter(Card) and go to internet TCP/IP and click properties and make sur 'Obtain IP address automatically is ticked. No click Start, then Run then type:- ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.(note the gap between ipconfig and the /). Restart your pc and router and try connecting again
