Re: connecting a second laptop to the wireless router

It is almost midnight where I am but I will try to get you started. There is a configuration option to a router where it can be given MAC addresses (quasi-unique addresses hardwired into every ethernet adapter). What you may be getting is a rejection message because the new wireless adapter's MAC address had not been configured into the router.

A second issue although the error sounds incorrect is the fact that each device requires a unique IP address -- if you copied the entire configuration using a static IP address from the first to the second adapter. Only one of you will be able to work at a time and the late arrival will be told he has a duplicate I{P address and will be notmally be blocked from network access. Other items can and should match like Subnet Mask, Default Gateway Address and DNS Addresses.

If this does not resolve the issue then add a comment and tomorrow morning on my side of the "Pacific Pond" I will try to expand on necessaary steps or provide alternative possibilities and actions to resolve the issues.

Good Luck

Cant connect ,no light on wireless connection. was

you need to setup the wireless connection if you havent already and your router needs to be a "wireless" router in order to create that type of internet connection. Have you laptop then scan for one which would be the one you just made and input the correct information to connect. If that doesn't work I'd suggest getting a new wireless router

My Dell laptop does not connect easily to d-link WBR 2310 router

2 wireless laptops are connecting. that means the router must be working properly. Only 1 laptop is not connecting.
Try to change the wireless channel on the router.
For this you will need to open the set up page of the router.
Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page. Under wireless settings try to change the wireless channel on the router and see if that works.

Dont have cd to run for my laptop belkin f5d7234-4 v4 router what do i do to make it work with my laptop???

If this is the only computer that you are trying to connect then you will need to set up the router from the start.
If the router is already working and there are one or more computer online already then you just need to connect to the network on the laptop.
Is it a wireless laptop or it will be connected to the router with the cable ?

If it is wireless then you will need to connect to the wireless network.

Cannont connect 3rd laptop to Linksys Wireless router WRT54G

Hi taejardine,

Try logging into the router to see whether the Wireless MAC Filter is Enabled. Since you already know that the DHCP limit is set to 50, I presume you've already logged into the router successfully. The Wireless MAC Filter is on the Wireless tab (the second tab, next to Setup), and is the third parameter from the left.

If the filter is enabled, simply add the MAC ID of each of your devices to Permit list (this won't affect your friends' use of the router).

If both of their devices work, and none of your devices work, then the odds are pretty good that the MAC ID Filter is the culprit. I hope this helps - please let know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,

2 router wireless

Yes, you can connect the second router to your exitsing router , you just need to connect the a cable from port 4 of the main router to the internet/wan port of the second router , then after that you can already use now the 2 wireless router at the same time. Also don't forget to turn off both routers after you're done in connecting them together so they will be synch...

Hope that helps...........
