Re: hooking up a lap top to a router

You didn't specify if he has DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

What operating system is on your computer?

Is your uncle using wireless security and if so what type?

this is because of the security type WPA enabled in the router...youo can login to router setup page by typing in the internet on security (found in the left side, if it asks for password leave it blank and click submit) and change the security type to wep64bit and type any 10digit number as your password in key1...dont type anything other than that in any other on apply changes...

Im trying to connect my ps3 to my wireless router. it has recently stopped working. is there anything i can do?

Sure! Try this:
1 Turn your network off. Modem router, computer, printers etc. turn them off.
2. Leaving the wireless router connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (modem power off) , turn your wifi router on and let it cycle up.
3. After the router is cycled up, turn power on to your modem , leaving the ethernet cable connected to the wifi router's internet port. Let the modem cycle up .
4. After this, turn on all computers, routers and etc... no particular order.
This should allow your modem to find the wifi router and direct it to your computer via wifi or ethernet..

Question on setting up two computers

Yes, I have pretty much the same setup at home. Wired desktop and wireless laptop. On the back of your wireless router, there should be 4 or 5 wired connections which you can use. You will only have to use the setup disk on one computer. Basically, the setup disk is for the router, not the computers, it simply guides you through the router configuration process. You can also do this manually, the manual for the router will give those instructions as well.

My wrieless network connection is properly installed but i can not connect internet using my laptop

Dear Ditditong,

First is your wifi switch on the compaq enabled. It is suppose to be lighted and an icon on the task bar will tell you it is.

Second, check your Wifi OS set-up if properly done ; if not use the windows wizard to accomplish this.

Third, Make sure your D-link has been properly set-up for wireless set-up to be able for you to access the router. The manual might have information along this line.
