Sitecom router broadband wireless connection to Win XP

I've gone through the different stages of connecting my new router, first to my basic computer, then to my new laptop.
Internet connection works fine until I disconnect computer cable from modem and connects it the router.
But the router seems correctly installed, its green symbol showing and signals indicated as strong.
USB unit installed
Should I use PPPOE or PPTP?

Hi FRND,

USB is hot plug & play device you doesn't need to restart or unplug!!
Install the driver CD provided by the router…Connect the router to computer…
It will automatically install the router and generate the Port for the internet connection… After this just login in to the router and change the setting by which the ISP gives you (IP Address) restart the router for setting applied after this connect the Internet and enjoy….. J

Most ISP may tell you that they do not support the Router! Log into the router and makes sure it clone the MAC address of your Laptop, and secure your Router by changing the password!

Have a great 2008!

You don't need PPPOE for router because its used for encapsulating PPP frames in a dial up connection, and thats where the modem is used.
you will only use PPTP if your ISP is using the PPTP server...
so my advice is that you contact your Internet Service Provider for confirmation.

This detail will be provided by your ISP.
DSL usually requires PPOE.
If you need morer info, supply the name of your ISP, the service provided and the Make/Model of the router.

This is a basic fix. Only usb is plug and play. If you unplug the eathernet cable it will require a reboot of the router and possably your computer. To reboot the router just unplug the power cord from the unit for 30 sec or so.

Adapter inactive


It is not the problem with the router. It is the problem with the wireless adapter on your computer. Open Network connections and look for Wireless network connection. If it is not there then open the Device Manager and look for Wireless network adapter under Network adapters. It seems that wireless adapter on your computer is not working or it is not detected by your computer. If you have external wireless adapter then unplug it and replug it.

I have broadband thru verizon on my netbook(windows7 OS). can i "jump" off that connection with my home pc, wireless capable, win xp OS? meanoing can i broadcast n\broadband signal so i can surf internet...


Yes, easy way would be through Connectify. It turns almost any Windows 7 OS PC into a virtual wifi router. The software is free. Basically, it will share whatever internet connection your netbook is getting via a virtual wifi hotspot that your other wireless devices can connect to.

I have a new Sitecom 341 wireless N router setup and working fine with other laptops in the home. My dated acer travelmate can see the modem and reports excellent connections, but is not serving pages in...


Theres a few things to try here 1) the acer may not like the type of wireless security you are using , WPA needs to have the correct hardware to work - log into the router and remove the wireless security and see if it will now connect - if it does, try putting the security back on and see if now connects - if not, you may need to change the security to WEP or use MAC Filtering 2) It may be that a firewall is blocking access to your network - try disabling the firewall 3) You may need to remove the wireless profiles on the PC and then reconnect and re-enter the security password - read here on how to do that http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm

Wireless-B BroadBandRouter BEFW11S4 driversfor mac os x &win xp


Just connect the computer wired on the computer your mac and no need to run the disc because it will not read it because the cd for linksys is good only for windows. You may OPEN safarri or IE browser, then try type on the address bar 192.168.1.1 - nothing for username and password is admin.

from there you may configure the router on what type of internet connection you have from you ISP, don't forget to save settings...

thank you

Wireless capabilities


Do you remember installing a wireless adpater on the pc that you upgraded to win xp? if not, then you really need to get a wireless receiver. Or you can also check you network connections under control panel, see if you have a wireless network connection under LAN or highspeed internet, if not you really need to get a wireless receiver for your computer.

Problem with sitecom wl-130 connection


I think I have the solution: you have to click on the basic settings tab, then n "site survey" button, then (optional) on "refresh" button.
Now you will get the information about your network, and you just have to check the channel number of the signal from your main router. then you have to set that channel in the "channel" button of the basic settings tab. You also have to choose Universal repeater as working mode of the sitecom device, instead of Access Point.
Hope it helps.
By the way, all these settings should be automatic in such a device.... But this sitecom range extender is ****.
I suggest everybody is reading: DON,T BUY THIS ITEM!!!! Spend 10 bucks more and get a working one!!!

Connecting a router


To connect more than one computer to same network, you need to use a router. Two modems will not work on same network.
My suggestion:
Buy a wireless modem router for cable broadband (and eventually a wireless network card for the other computer.
Here is an example: Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B 4-Port Cable/DSL
Ask retailer to get right model for your broadband.
Connect the remote computer with wireless.

How do I isolate a computer from the internet when it is part of a network that does access it?


your pc should still be able to run a anti virus programme, as i assume it's atleast windows 98se, so you can install a free excellent anti virus programme called AVG free, with free updates, see link below:- http://www.download.com/3000-2239_4-10746390.html Your router will have wep WPA-PSK security and a built in firewall also, so it should be safe especially if it is win98se as this version is not a suseptable to viruses and trojans unlike XP. You can assign mac addresses in your router, this will only allow any inputed pc's mac addresses to access the router, you will need to input each individual pc's mac address into the router settings.
