Log onto router in URL type in 192.168.1.1 if nothing happens, go to command prompt and type in:
C: arp -a the first instance of 192.168.x.x will be your IP address. Go back up to the URL type it in.

log on to router - admin is default for username as well as password. make sure on front page there that where it says "
Starting IP Address: document.write(document.setup.SDHCP1.value+"."+document.setup.SDHCP2.value+"."+document.setup.SDHCP3.value+".") 192.168.0. (put a 2 here)


Also, make sure the number of wireless devices is allowing more than just your desktop.

Last, on the MAC tab, make sure addressing is OFF

Good Luck with it. Hope it works for you - I need some ratings and votes etc...

How Do I connect to internet with my desktop without Ethernet cable


To connect wireless to a network ..you need a wireless router or access to a near by one ..and you need to install a wireless card on computer if it has non ..This can be a pci card and you will install it on a pci slot inside and install its driver and after that connect to the network available ..or use a wireless card on usb ..
If you do not have a network free near by ..you can connect using the wireless card to another computer connected to the internet ..or install a wireless router on your Ethernet cable ..and a card in computer or a usb one ..
In my opinion the wireless card and router is the best way cause connecting trough another computer can be tricky and slow..
another way ..if you do not have any other means is to use a wireless modem on usb from a mobile network ISP (internet service provider )
This can be the same provider as your mobile phone one ..

Dell optiplex GX620 desktop has an ethernet port on it, that is not an adapter, I cannot connect to the internet, I downloaded and installed a driver for a wireless ethernet adapter, but that has not...


Okay,..........

1) You can download a wireless Ethernet adapter driver all day, but if you Do Not have a wireless adapter card installed in your computer, the drivers do you no good.

Or if you do not have a wireless USB adapter plugged into a USB port.

Example of a wireless adapter card,

Example of a wireless USB device,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6367137&CatId=2692

Example of an Ethernet adapter card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

If you are just going to hardwire the computer, just buy an Ethernet adapter card, (PCI version), and install it in your computer, (On the motherboard), in any available white PCI slot.

IF it is the Mini Tower model.

The Desktop, Small Form Factor (SFF), and Ultra Small Form Factor (SFF) computers, are too small in width for a regular size Ethernet adapter card.

They need a Low-Profile Ethernet adapter card,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833114034

This is for a Dell Optiplex GX620 Mini-Tower computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx620/en/ug/A02/mtabout0.htm#wp1051997

Scroll the page down until you come to the bold blue heading - System Board Components
This is an illustration of a Top view of the Mini-Tower's motherboard.

16 and 17 point to two PCI slots.
This is where an Ethernet adapter card that is the PCI version, will plug into.

PCI slots are White in color.
An example of a basic PCI slot, ( 3 are shown),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

If you do decide to go wireless;

1) Wireless networking operates at half of the speed of wired networking.

A computer that is wired directly to an Ethernet adapter card, is twice as fast on the internet, as a computer that is connected wireless.

2) Make sure your Router is capable of wireless.
Make sure the wireless router has a built-in Modem, or that you have a separate Modem.

[ For DSL.
Phone line connects to Filter. Filter has a place for a telephone cable, and an Ethernet cable.
Ethernet cable connects to Filter, and other end connects to Modem.
Ethernet cable goes from Modem to Wireless router that does not have a built-in Modem.

OR,
Phone line connects to Filter. Ethernet cable from Filter goes directly to wireless router, that has a built-in Modem.

Computer has to have a USB wireless device, or a wireless adapter card, installed.

For additional questions, or to clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.
(Believe upper right of your page, blue Comment)

I have two ParkerVision WR1500 4-port Wireless DSL/Cable Routers. The first one I have connected my Ethernet Cable from my modem to the WAN port. This is where I get my Internet Signal. My understanding...


You won't get internet connection that way because there is no connection between the first parkervision and the 2nd one.
Best way is use only one parkervision router. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc and 2nd lan port connect to 2nd pc in other room. 2nd way is, use only one parkervision. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc, setup wireless SSID and connect your 2nd pc to this router for internet wirelessly. Assuming your 2nd pc has wireless capability.

I want to connect my all-in-one with my desktop-computer and router.


1.Your Modem you have with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) has an Ethernet cable coming from it
2.Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port of the router.
3.Unless your desktop computer has wifi capabilities (Wireless) your will want to plug an Ethernet cable directly from your Ethernet port of your computer to one of the 4 ports of your router.
4.This will allow you to connect 8 devices wireless around your home with your desktop computer Tethered (Hardwired to your router)

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop, around 5-6 years old. It is connected to the internet through a cable modem then through a wireless router, but it is connected with a LAN line. If I try to connect to...


Sounds like the actual ethernet adaptor (hardware) may be out but first I would run a really good spyware and see if it is infected. This one works really great (see link at bottom) although, it is not free but you can download, installl and it will run scan and tell you if you have malware (which is why it will not connect). It only cost 30 bucks to purchase which is reasonable to take off the malware and get back online. Beats a techs fee.

If there is no sign of malware, then the hardware is out and you will need to replace. These can be purchased at Wal-mart for under 60 bucks. Hope this helps!

take note of gateway address
type this into a web browser

When you login to the modem click on the wireless settings and record the wpa/wep key this is what you need to login through 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.
