When attemptin to attach to a wireless router

Either the SSID's match between your router and wireless adapter or your router is unencrypted and is attached to by the default configuration that uses the SSID it finds of an unencrypted network.

Now the two machines can talk to each other

If you request a dynamic IP address from the router it's DHCP can pass to your wireless adapter a various pieces of information including an IP Address, subnet mask, default gateway (the routers address in this case), adn DNS addresses (optional)

If you have static addressing in the wireless adapter you must provide to the wireless adapter a IP Address (NOT in the DHCP range of the router and not matching any other device attacned to the network, the same subnet mask as the router, the gateway address of the router and DNS addresses.

The first three of these allow you to communicate with the roouter and establish connectivity with it.

If the router's lan address is 192.168.0.1 and subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 then all addresses of devices connected to the router lan must begin 192.168.0.?. IF the DHCP server in the router can assign 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.149 as dynamic addresses. We can assign 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.99 as static IP addresses each to one and only one device. There are more potential static addresses above 192.168.0.149 but we will ignore them for this discussion.

The communication band (A, B, G, N) sable by for the router and wireless adapter must have at least one in common

Both the router and wireless adapter must have encryption set the same (WEP or WPA with the same passphrases and options)

If Mac Filtering is enabled on the router the MAC address of the wireless adapter must be loaded into the routers table of permitted MAC addresses.

If there is an error in the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway?, encryption, or Mac Filtering, mismatched bands the wireless connection will fail as indicated with limited or no connectivity.

Even if all that works you still are not assured access to the internet.

The DNS addresses and default gateway are needed to be correct along with all the ISP's interface requirements for the wan or modem side of the router to be able to access the internet as and achieve the expected results such as accessing google.

If you would like to work through this step by step we can get you connected however I cannot see what you are doing and anything you do or change that I don't know about until we are done is likely to confuse the process. Please reply to this message if you wish for me to continue to assist.

Find proxy server address


Changing TCP/IP settings Win 7 TCP/IP defines how your computer communicates with other computers.
To make it easier to manage TCP/IP settings, we recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP automatically assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your TCP/IP settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure TCP/IP settings, such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS). To enable DHCP or change other TCP/IP settings, follow these steps:
  1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, typeadapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties. 25e7e385-9327-4f7d-aab0-afa5aaf952ba_49.jpgThe Network Connection Properties dialog box
  4. To specify IPv4 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IP address, and then, in the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  5. To specify IPv6 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IPv6 address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IPv6 address, and then, in the IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  6. To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get a DNS server address automatically using DHCP, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.

    I am using Belkin F5D7632ak4A. My problem is that:


    Hi there,

    In doing a port forwarding, you actually need to assign a manual address on the computer where you are using the service port for the computer not to change the IP address. If your private address on the network is 192.168.1.XX then you may assign on your computer 192.168.1.2-99 any of the address there. Also you may need to know the DNS you are using on the router which you can find on the status tab of the router.

    To assign an IP address, if your computer is wired then right click on the wireless connection and select properties, if it is a wireless computer right click on the wireless connection and select properties.

    After you have selected the said properties> look for Internet Protocol TCP/IP then select properties.

    Then click on USE THE FOLLOWING IP ADDRESS and USE THE FOLLOWING DNS server as well.

    then from there you can put in the set of address you have for ex.
    IP address 192.168.1.10
    subnet mask 255.255.255.0
    Default gateway 192.168.1.1
    DNS
    preferred DNS 66.28.87.105
    alternate DNS 66.28.87.104

    Note: these are just example. after you have done assigning an IP address then you may do the port forwarding again. change the IP address on the port forwarding tab to the IP address you have assigned. Then don't forget to save the settings.

    Cant get internet connection on my ps


    first check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.

    try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following:
    - explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address
    - purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 168.126.63.1 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp
