Re: I have a new wireless router and the set up cd cant...
If you have a wireless router that has some lan ports.. there is no problem..
You should connect an ethernet cable from wall jack directly into the WAN port on your router/access point.
recommend that you have some kind of encryption enabled- at least WEP,
and preferably WPA or WPA2 which are far more secure than WEP.
also recommend (for increased security) that you enable MAC filtering.
This feature allows you to identify which wireless cards the router
will "speak" to, and it can specify that your router ignore all other
ethernet cards. This ensures that only computers you approve of can use
your access point. You can find your MAC address by clicking Start
-> Run, typing "cmd", clicking "Ok", and then typing "ipconfig /all"
in the console window that pops up. Your MAC address is listed next to
Physical Address. If you have more than one network adapter, such as an
ethernet and wireless, you probably have more than one MAC address.
Make sure to use the one from the wireless adapter.
Open Internet Explorer (with the computer connected to the Router)
Enter 192.168.1.1 into the Address Bar, push Enter
Leave the User Name field blank
Under the password field enter “admin”
some routers have a quick set up... try that firts.. then.. you could get to make your connection a bit secure... by changing the password.. its really simple.. just tour around the options.. and if you need help, just post your problems

First configure your router with below method.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi .Then save settings and restart router.
Then connect internet cable from service provider to your router's WAN port.If you want wired internet then connect lan cable from computer to router's lan port.

The netgear router installation will set up the internet connection during install. Download the Router driver from netgears website and install on the computer/s then your up and running. it appears you wireless card is seeing the router so just install the drivers and your set.
1. Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.
2. Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
3. Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
4. Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
5. Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
6. Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
7. Click on "Properties."
8. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
9. Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
10. Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
11. Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
12. Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.
You don't want to set a static IP address in your wireless router. You'll be connected to the network alright, but the IP address won't be recognized by the primary router. Thus, you'll see you're connected with only local access.
First and foremost, ensure that your Internet connection is valid. Plug the ethernet cable from the wall directly into your computer and test the connection. If you can't get it to work, then the problem is not on your end. Contact the agency in charge of the external router (e.g. apartment maintenance).
If your connection is fine hard wired, you may have bad data or a faulty configuration in your wireless router. I suggest doing a complete hard reset (there should be some instructions with your router on how to do it--some have a small flush mounted button that you have to press for a few seconds). Set up your wireless router as if for the first time. This should take care of your problems.
it will as long as the modem/router is connected to a phone line, instead of the pc, the only cable connected to the pc should be a ethernet cable; or you have the pc networking set that it connects via another pc instead of through a gateway, re run the wireless network wizard.
IF YOUR WIRELESS NETWORK ACCESS POINT IS CONNECTED BUT YOU CANT GET ONLINE,YOU WILL NEED TO GO TO YOUR DLINK ONLINE ROUTER SETTINGS PAGE AND CHANGE YOUR PASSPHRASE KEY WHICH YOU NEED TO CONNECT THE ACCESS POINT TO THE WIRELESS ROUTER.BEFORE YOU DO THIS THOUGH,OPEN UP THE NETWORK CONNECTIONS WIZARD ON YOUR LAPTOP AND VIEW"AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS".IF YOU SEE YOUR NETWORK LISTED,HIGHLIGHT THE NETWORK AND PUSH THE CONNECT BUTTON.WINDOWS WILL ASK YOU FOR A PASSPHRASE OR PASSWORD.ENTER THAT AND CLICK CONNECT.YOU SHOULD THEN GET CONNECTED TO THE WEB.IF YOU DONT HAVE A PASSPHRASE OR PASSWORD,THAT IS WHY YOU CANNOT CONNECT THRU THE ROUTER AND YOU WILL THEN NEED TO CREATE A NEW PASSPHRASE AT THE D-LINK WEB SETTINGS PAGE.GOOD LUCK.
Have you accessed and setup your wireless part of the modem?
To access the router settings menu, you will first need to log into the Wireless router following the steps below: Open Internet Explorer In the address bar type the following address: 192.168.0.1 You will be prompted to enter a Username and Password to access the interface, please use the following default details: Username: This can be found on the bottom of the router Password: This can be found on the bottom of the router From the list on the left hand side, click on ‘Router Status’. Within the Router Status section there are two areas you will be able to access: Show Statistics Connection Status The Router Status page gives you a detailed status overview of the connection configured on the Wireless router. Click ‘Connection Status’ to see more information on the broadband connection. If you have already configured your broadband, you are able to establish/terminate the connection by clicking Connect/Disconnect. You can also click ‘Show Statistics’ to show you current connection speed and more information on your Broadband connection. Clicking on Basic Settings enables you to check all the Internet settings of your Broadband connection. Including the Login name (username) and password, IP address and type of connection. Clicking on ‘Test’ will perform a standard check of your Internet connection and settings. ADSL SETTINGS The ‘ADSL Settings’ section provides you with some more information about your Internet connection. These are: Multiplexing Method VPI VCI WIRELESS SETTINGS This section gives you full information regarding the Wireless connection. From here, you can change security settings, the SSID (Name) of the router and the access control list. Options list from: Name(SSID) virgin broadband (default) Region Europe(default) Channel 11(default) Mode g&b(default) Enable Wireless Access point Allow broadcast name Security options (None, WEP and WPA)
- hope this helps
did you set up your wireless connection using a wired internet connection. i have a netgear wireless system and tried to set it up without being 'wired' but you can not do it that way. you have to be connected to set it up, then you can configure it, and after that it should be ok. i actually went back to a 'wired' connection cos the netgear was very unreliable
