Open your control panel then open the network wizard do also to the other computer. note: in order to have a network the your work group name should be the same e.g. MSHOME.

DGN2000 router problem. I have 2 pc connected on the router and only the main one has access to the internet. Am i doing something wrong with the settings or does my router has a problem? Is it true that...


I'm not aware of any problem with the DGN2000 that only lets you connect 1 computer (If it was I dont think they would sell many and EVERYBODY would know about it)

Anyway - try swapping the network leads over (remember which port is the "live" one) does the other PC now have internet access and the 1st one not?

if the 2nd pc DOES have internet access the yes you have a suspect router.
if the 1st computer DOESN'T have Internet access you have suspect router.

if the 2nd pc DOESN't have internet access but the 1st pc DOES - then the problem is something on the 2nd pc.

Hope this helps.

Can you rotate the computer, so that the antenna in your computer is physically closest to the router?
If your router has a single-pole antenna, make sure that it is vertical -- the signal goes "sideways" from the antenna.
If your router has more than one antenna, follow the manufacturer's directions for pointing each antenna (typically a 'V' for twin antennas).

Access the router's built-in web-interface, and confirm that the router is transmitting at 100% power.

Internet light and port light blink constantly no internet access


Sounds like 2 things, either one something is really really using your internet connection or you may try to press the reset button on the back of the router to bring it back to defaults.

if you have any settings in the router it WILL reset them to defaults. I.E. if you connect wirelessly to it you will need to set it back up.

If it doesn't work and the same situation happens you may need to try and plug your computer directly into the internet connection and see if you can get online that way. if it works that way you know it is the router. if it doesn't work it is something on the computer or the cords between the router and the computer

I have comcast and as soon as i hookup the Zonet router zsr0104cp i dont have the internet on either of my computers


If you connect the computer to the modem, it works. but it does not work with the router. You will need to check the settings of the router. For this you will need to access the router set up. Your ISP is comcast. The computer which is online when connected to the router is your main computer. you will need to use that computer to set up the router. Click Here for step by step solutions

Need to boost my wireless signal for remote laptop


It's almost a DIY deal, but how close are you to Corpus?

The unit you need is a Wireless access point. My favorite, fairly inexpensive, WAP is made by TP Link. http://www.tplink.com/products/product_des.asp?id=116

You can start with one, at ***********'s, add an external antenna, and set it up as a client pointing to your wireless internet connection. If that doesn't work, you duplicate the equipment set up as a wireless access point at your location.

Post back if you need purchasing help or are near Corpus.

Disc loaded connection exc. still can't get on to internet


Lets start at the beginning, you should have a DSL/CABLE modem that connects you to the internet to begin with now. It would be helpful to know the Manufacturer and model of that device. There were probably two possibilities on how you had your internet set up before. The modem could be a modem/router with only one port in which the router supplied the username and password to access the internet. If this is the case you will need to hook a computer up to the modem directly access its default IP address usually 192.168.1.1 or .254. To access this device you will have to manually set your IP address to a address that is on the same subnet. You do this by going to network connections in control panel right clicking the Local Area Connection and clicking properties. Then scroll down in the box until you see TCP/IP click on it and hit the properties button. Set your ip address to something like 192.168.1.50 and a subnet of 255.255.255.0. You will need to change the routing pattern to Bridged Ethernet. This will allow your new router to do all the work. You will then need to hook your modem directly to the WAN port on your router and connect your computer to one of the switch ports on the router. You will then need access your router by using 192.168.1.1 or .254. You will need to set the PPoE Information i.e. username and password. Now you will need to go back to your network connections and change your ip address back to the obtain automatically. Your internet should kick on and start working. If i have made any wrong assumptions please let me know and I will follow up with a more detailed response.

Thanks

If you have Blinking light on your d-link wireless adapter, then it is aquiring a IP address from your router. Did you add your d-link adpter to your router? How many computer are accessing your router? Do you have your router set with Encryption code? You might need to change channels. Did you name your (SSID)?
