    same brand label for what? Regardless of what brand your computer is, any outside peripheral device can be any brand you want.

Connect to router


uickly and painlessly. Ad

Method 1 of 3: Connect the Router

  1. 670px-access-a-router-step-2.jpg
    1
    Connect the router to the modem. The router sends the modem's internet connection to any computer connected to its network. Ensure that both the modem and the router have their power cables plugged in. Plug one end of a network cable into your modem. Plug the other end into the port on your router labeled "Internet," "WAN," or "WLAN." The labels will vary depending on the type of router you have. Ad
  2. 2
    Install the software. Depending on the router brand and model, you may or may not receive software to install on the computer. This software is typically an interface to connect to the router and adjust the settings, though it is not required.
  3. 670px-access-a-router-step-3.jpg 3
    Connect your computer to the router. You can do this either through an Ethernet cable or over Wi-Fi. If this is your first time setting the router up, then connect your computer via Ethernet so that you can configure the wireless network.
    • Typically, the Ethernet ports on the Router are labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. but any port not labeled "WAN," "WLAN," or "Internet" will work. Connect the other end of the cable to the Ethernet port on your computer.

Method 2 of 3: Accessing the Router

  1. 670px-access-a-router-step-4bullet1.jpg
    1
    Open the web browser on your computer. In the address bar, type in the address of your router and hit "Enter." This will give you access to the router's settings. The address of your router will depend on the brand of router you have. Common brands and their default address include:
    • Linksys - http://192.168.1.1
    • 3Com - http://192.168.1.1
    • D-Link - http://192.168.0.1
    • Belkin - http://192.168.2.1
    • Netgear - http://192.168.0.1.
  2. 2Find the address through other means. Sometimes the router will have the default address and default password printed on the router. Check the labels for reference. If your router's IP address cannot be found, search for your router's address on the Internet by visiting the "Support" section on the router manufacturer's website.
    • If none of these options work, your router may have been configured by someone else to use a custom IP address. Press and hold the Reset button on your router to restore it to factory defaults. All settings and configurations will be erased. The Reset button is usually recessed and needs to be pushed using a paper clip.
  3. 670px-access-a-router-step-5.jpg 3
    Input the default username and password for your router. You will be asked for this in a pop-up window after you enter the router address. You can find this in the router's product documentation. Generally, the default username is "admin" and the default password is either "admin" or "password."
    • If the user name or password has been changed from the default and you don't have access to it, you can reset the settings using the Reset button on the router.

Method 3 of 3: Configure Your Router's Settings

  1. 1Configure your internet connection. Most routers will automatically detect your internet settings from the modem's connection. Adjusting any internet related settings, such as DHCP or DNS, without specific instructions from your telecom company may result in the loss of connection.
  2. 670px-access-a-router-step-6bullet1.jpg 2
    Set up the wireless network. If you have a Wi-Fi enable router, you can setup a Wireless network with that can be accessed by other Wi-Fi enabled devices. Open the Wireless section of the router's configuration screen. This is usually listed under Basic Setup, or Wireless Settings.
    • Locate the input box labeled "SSID." This is the name of your network and what people see when they attempt to connect to a network. Name your SSID something unique so that you'll recognize the network when you need to connect. Make sure the box labeled "Enable SSID Broadcast" is checked in order to broadcast the signal.
    • Most settings, such as Channel and Mode can be left at defaults unless you are troubleshooting specific issues.
  3. 670px-access-a-router-step-6bullet3.jpg 3
    Secure your wireless network. Most modern routers support multiple kinds of wireless encryption. Use WPA or WPA2 to ensure that your network key will remain uncrackable. Pick a combination of letters and numbers to make the password strong. Users will need to enter this password on their devices or computers when connecting wirelessly to the network.
  4. 670px-access-a-router-step-6bullet2.jpg 4
    Assign your router a new username and password. You will use this the next time you access the router. The default name and password for your router is very unsecure, as anyone that is connected to your network can easily enter the settings and compromise the security of your network.

Cant remember my ssid number


SSID is the acronym for Service Set IDentifier (SSID). This with just one word is the identification name for your wireless network. Depending on the router you have you cane change this name according to something you'd like to use. This name is the name of the network you will search in order to connect your wireless device (during the connection you willbe asked to provide the pass-phrase in case this WiFi is security protected)

    Dymo prints blotchy labels and feeds out many labels after print


    Sounds like you have a couple of issues going on...your labels are incompatible or you have an incorrect template selected in the Dymo Software.

    Check that the label model matches the template and you are using quality Dymo Labels. Such as the Dymo name brand or the LabelValue brand Dymo labels.

    What wifi card for 12xl500 (compaq)?


    It depends.

    If your computer runs Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7, every known brand-new wireless adapter will work.

    If your computer has a PCMCIA slot (about the size/thickness of a credit-card), then you can buy a "PCMCIA wireless adapter".

    If your computer has a USB slot (most do!) then you can buy a "USB wireless adapter".

    There are three different data-transfer speeds for wireless communications:
    * wireless B -- up to 11 megabits/second
    * wireless G -- up to 54 megabits/second
    * wireless N -- much faster.

    Note that "high-speed" service from your local cable-modem ISP can receive at up to 10.0 megabits (or even faster) per second, while "lite-speed" service receives data at around 1.0 megabits per second.

    So, when downloading, it's your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) that will be the "bottle-neck", not the "B" or "G" or "N" capability of your wireless adapter.

    You probably can find "used" wireless-B or wireless-G adapters, in your local area:
    * online, via 'www.usedEverwhere.com'
    * local computer-stores
    * online via eBay

    for $10 to $20 dollars.

    Pick a "brand-name", and you can download the device-drivers for it from the manufacturer's web-site ('www.linksys.com', 'www.dlink.com')
    if Windows does not automatically recognize it.
