Question about Hawking Wireless-G HWR54G (603992506064) 802.11b/g Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

No Wireless Connection

My cable modem was down for about 12 hours yesterday, but it's now up and running on my desktop, but my laptop will not recognize the wireless signal from the router. I called Gateway (laptop manufacturer) and Charter (internet provider) and they suggested that I should call Hawking. I really hate being on the phone for long periods of time, and it's Christmas Eve, so I thought I'd post here first. I've recycled the power a couple of dozen times with no luck, and tried to reset the router but I don't know if it worked or not? Can anyone help me? I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

    Thanks for your answer, but I called Gateway back and they seem to think my network card has gone bad, because my sister has wireless on her laptop. So they are sending me another network card. I do appreciate your help though.

Can your laptop connect to the internet using an ethernet cable that is connected to the Hawking router?

Check to see if your laptop has a wireless on-off button or switch on the outside of the case. It may even be a combination of two keys "Fn + F2" on some Gateway laptops. When you flip the switch an indicator light of some kind will tell you when your turning the wireless radio on and off. Flick the switch until you're sure the radio is on and try to connect.

Let me know the answers to both of these items.

Cannot connect to internet today. Yesterday all was well.

If the modem works and a desktop pc works through the Ethernet port of the router, then try plugging the pc laptop into the same Ethernet port using the same cable as the desktop. Most laptops have an Ethernet port.

If this works, then the problem is the wireless access?

Check you still have the wireless set-up on the pc laptop, if not re-install it.

Router won't log into it's IP address online

It appears to me that you have everything plugged into the desktop PC. This is not the way that it should be done. Plug the cable modem into the wireless router via the Internet/WAN port. Plug your desktop PC into one of the ports numbered 1-4. Now connect to the router via the wireless connection for the router and you should be able to now connect to the internet with your laptop.
If it still does not work, power down everything in this order: Laptop, Desktop, Router, Cable Modem. Bring everthing up in the reverse order (Cable Modem, Router, Desktop, Laptop) waiting for each device to stablize before moving to the next.
Once you get everything working, turn on your wireless security (WPA not WEP) asap to keep your computers and surfing safe, and to keep intruders off your network.

Ethernet Port failure new router

Check the socket in either the router or the PC. I had the same problem, only with my modem. When I inspected the port, the pins were misaligned, causing it to drop a connection. I corrected mine with a screwdriver, which is not ideal but it works.

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.

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

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.
