You didn't specify if you're using DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computerWireless Connection - 1.gif that has the software installed (verizon1.gif, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

My printer will not connect to my computer's wireless network.


Hi,

The first step is to set up a wireless network is that you need the equipments for connection. First of all you need a Broadband Internet connection, Wireless router, and a wireless network adapter. The router converts the signals coming from your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast. You need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer and you must make sure that you have one adapter for every computer. If you have a desktop computer make sure that you have an USB port to plug the wireless network adapter to your computer.

I'm having a problem setting up my linksys wireless router. My computer sees the connection but will not connect to it? I've tried the repair option and tried to add a network with out any luck.


As i remember Linksys goes with Straight Through Ethernet cable. Always, good thing is to connect your computer to Wireless Router using LAN port. Set DHCP (Automatic) connection for your computer. After receiving ip from router you can setup your Wireless Router using GUI, and setup your Wireless Network, SSID/Security. From adapter to adapter there can be some misc problem with WEP/WPA/WPA2 and so on, so it maybe your issue, or OS blocking connection to Wireless Networks without security.

I installed a linksys wireless-G Broadband Router and my laptop does not get a signal. Help please


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Broadband connection


You should find the manual that comes with the Router. It will have good instructions on the details to configure this.

Basically you will use your browser on your desktop to connect to a web page within your nb504 router.
You will turn on wireless connections and enable security plus give your wireless network a name.
Once that is done you will configure security on your laptop to connect to your wireless network.

Don't skip the security bit or your neighbors will be able to use your internet connection for free.

The default settings in modem devices are really good these days so follow the recommendations in your router manual and you should be able to figure it out.

If you can't find your router manual you should be able to download it from Netcomm.

Hope this helps

Newtwork connection


You have the right device to connect the two computers on your home network. Once you are connected to the router and internet on both computers, make sure that both computers are members of the same workgroup name.

While both computers are on, go to My Network Places and click on view workgroup computers, you should see the other computer as well as the one you are sitting at.
