Re: need help

Is your laptop working completely -- including to the internet to access web pages with its current router attachment?

Is the laptop connected wirelessly or by a wire?

Is the desktop connected with a wire or wirelessly?

Was the desktop connected to another device before?

Was the desktop configured to login before especially if it was not connected to the router before?

Did you configure the router to do the login that used to be done by the desktop before, if that was the case?

If the router is now doing the login did you configure the desktop not to login if it is no longer needed?

Did you configure IP addresses, subnet masks, gateway addresses or DNS addresses into the router before?

Does having the router mean these should be removed and the desktop switched to accept dymanic addressing from the router?

These are quite a few questions and you may not be able to answer them all. Answer what you can in a comment to this issue and I will attempt to determine a plan to get your desktop connected.

Encore Wireless Router Wireless connection problem

You need to have a cable connection from the laptop to the router first then go to the router setting by typing something like 192.x.x.x which differs from router to router.This should be available in the manual or in many cases are printed underneath the router.Once you get to the set up page for the router then you can set up the encryption type and create a key which will be needed by the laptop to connect to the network.Hope this helps.

Can only connect 1 computer to 'net on router

rourke, you shouldn't be entering the same settings on both router and desktop. I should only be on the router. It seems like something with DHCP is misconfigured on your router. Make sure it (DHCP) is enabled.

Belkin router

I'm guessing that your laptops are using a wireless connection. If this is the case the first time you enter the wireless security key (password) it will be stored in the laptop so you don't need to enter it again.

To connect to the router, you need to open its associated web page which you will normally find by typing the routers IP address into the address bar in Internet Explorer. The usual default address for a Belkin router is

Once you connect to the router you should be able to access all the security settings from the Belkins main menu.

Pc connection problems

Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS

Setup Question

no if your pc is connected to the router, then that one has its connection which i assume will be either usb connected or ethernet connected. You laptop will connect via the wireless connection to the router, not your pc, so as long as your laptop has a wireless adapter then it will independantly connect to the router, your other pc does not have to be switched on as your router is connected to the net as long as it is switched on.
