Make sure the adapter either wireless or ethernet is enabled on the PC. Reboot your cable modem and or router by unpluging the power for a few seconds. If you have both plug the modem back in first and let it lock then plug the router back in. Allow them to obtain an IP address then try to get online.

Maintain wireless connection at school, is ok everywhere else...


There are some points to consider: 1. It could be that your computer is restricted from the school's wireless access point. 2. It could also be that the wireless adapter is old and might be needing an upgrade. 3. You could also try to re-type the school's wireless password in your computer is there is any.

My old d-link router works fine. I bought a new DIR-615 but it won't connect. My computer won't "see" it. I followed all directions several times.


Make sure that the broadcast SSID in your router is enabled. Try setting it up again and make sure all necessary settings are set, or it might be the settings in your computer itself, let me know what type of computer you are currently using so i can check.

II have been trying to connect wirelessly my new HP lap top to an old series 600 but the computer can't connect even after entering the key. It works ok on cable.can any one help


1. your issue is due to a a wireless laptop is not compatible with the old router or
you may need a firmware upgrade.
2. the cold compute may be able to connect via a cord (Ethernet) but not wirelessly due to an outdated driver for the network card ( the card will need updated drivers also) if it is a wireless b card then the ability to us a WAP key will not be possible
because your card was designed to use WEP key.
3. a new wireless G card installed to the old PC will allow connectivity if the wireless card is backwards compatible.
4. most all PC's can connect via a Ethernet cord they are all designed that way and have not changed for the 20 or 30 years they have been in use.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

I just bought a Belkin Router Model # F5D8236-4. I have everything wired correctly, but the wireless light does not come on. I can't get the internet to come on to the computer I want to connect to? What...


Wireless light will lit up only if any wireless computer is connected to Belkin's wireless network.
First, connect to Belkin's wireless network that you can scan.
