Does your laptop have built-in wireless?

If so it has an on/off switch so you can use it in planes. Have you turned it on?

Using the following link for instructions

execute the command (one space before /)

ipconfig /all

Record the following

  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask ---------(wired should match wireless)
  • Default Gateway ----(wired should match wireless)
  • DNS Address(es) ---(wired should match wireless)

Using the same command window then this command (replace the with the default gateway from ipconfig if different)


this should display 4 messages with elapsed times if it works and 4 timeout messages if it fails.

Once when wired and once when wireless
-- from what you have said the wired answers should be right
------ we are going to compare to wireless to look for problems
-- tell me the differences between the two displays
-- you will need to write down the results from each pass

If the switch issue does not solve the problem the above information should allow me to determine what is wrong.

I have a broadband router with SRX400 and im trying to install it on my laptop and i cant. i need help installing it. i have the disk but it keeps telling me it cant connect

Do you have CD? Start>Control panel>Add Remove and uninstall it. Restart computer. You have to use the "lan" cord with the cd to install it. Reset your cable or phone modem by the back reset switch. Install cd and follow the directions that cam with it in exact order or you have to remove it again. Do not hook it up to your internet modem until instructed to do so. Linksys does have a 1-800-326-7114 customer support line to help but if you do call them make sure you have it completely uninstalled.

I lost my cd to install how do i go by installing this router to my new laptop

you said that you are to connect the new laptop to the router.
Do you have any other computer already working through the router ?
If your other computers are working through the router then your router already set up and you don't need to run the CD. all you need to do is connect to the wireless network.
If this is the only one computer in your network and you are trying to install the router then you can do it manually also without CD.

I UPGRADED TO VISTA AND NOW I CANT GET MY 2WIRE PORTAL SOFTWARE TO INSTALL. IS THERE AN UPGRADE OR NEW SOFTWARE AVAILABLE ? ► there is no need to install the CD if ur trying to connect using an ethernet cable to the 2wire. If ur attempting a wireless connexn, u shud configure the wireless set up.

1000 SW (Model) for 2wire,Connects fine, intermittently the Broadband Link goes ORANGE and keeps me off Internet ► this is a possible line problem. Try plugging ur 2wire's phone cable directly to the phone/wall jack removing the filter or splitter in the process. Then see if the problem reoccurs. If it DOES NOT, replace ur filter with a new one. If it DOES reoccur or if it is already connected to the phone/wall jack directly, contact ur Internet service provider.

keep me posted on these...

Seems there are problems with Vista. Contact Belkin see if they offer support or firmware updates to work with Vista.
