Hi people I have an airlive radio the power and wlan led are working whith the indicator of the wlan blinking but the Lan indicator light is off i have no wired connection to my computer.


The failure lies on the LAN side. You need to check back towards the server, somewhere there is a disconnection.

Does it supply Power Over Ethernet?

The radio only provides access to the server/router over the LAN.

If it cannot log on to the LAN it will not work.

How do i set up my router msi


Is that a standalone router or a modem/router combination ? If it is a standalone router, in order to set up a home network to access the Internet, you need a modem (cable modem or DSL modem) which must be given to you by your Internet provider when you subscribe for Internet service. Your Internet provider has to provide instructions on how to set up your modem. A modem acts as a router too and has a WLAN port and a number of LAN ports (between 1 and 4). The WLAN port is where you hook up your modem to the Internet using an Ethernet cable. One end of the Ethernet cable goes into WLAN port of the modem/router and the other end goes either into a cable outlet (if your Internet provider is a cable company such as Comcast) or a phone jack if your Internet provider is a phone company such as AT&T or Verizon). To connect your desktop computer to the Internet, you plug it in any of the LAN ports on the modem/router. Contact your Internet provider for set up instructions for your specific brand and type of modem.

Hope this helps.

Only power light goes on when I reconnect to electricity. WLAN and LAN lights stay off


It sonds like you are ethernet connected to the Edimax from your home computer. Can you access a wireless connection? If so Try This:
Unplug the ethernet connection between the PC and the router. Exchange the connection (The ethernet connected to the PC place it in the Edimax and Put the connection from the Edimax into the PC) Check to see if you have a connection light on both devices.
Reboot you Edimax and PC. First turn on the PC and let it power up to the desktop. Once the PC is on then power on the Edimax. Now check to see if you have a connection. If these steps don't work I suggest you try replacing the ethernet plug connected between both devices.

Good luck!

Hp pavilion a330n Internet Explorer won't connect.


check your IP Adress settings are correct for this machine,
Go to start ,then click on run,Type CMD,Then type IPCONFIG/ALL.it will show you a list of all the devices connected to your machine and your local network,

Have you got LAN & WLAN adaptors on board?
this will explain your message,
you will have to set the ip settings on each adaptor
ie LAN 192.168.1.2 and WLAN 192.168.1.3
This wiil help determine which adaptor is to be used when connecting to the network and the internet.

If your using wireless on computer to connect to the internet then run your wizard to help setup the connection

Same for the wired LAN ,use your wizard

The settings for your modem can be reset easily and your ISP will help get you connected to the net because you already have an account with them,

Power management related query


Some system have a BIOS settings like these. There are 2 options affecting the NIC. LAN/WLAN switching and LAN power save. Are both LAN power save and LAN/WLAN switching enabled?

On my laptop, it does the same thing as your computer when its on battery (HP laptop) except when there is an ethernet cable plugged in or loopback. I made a little loopback plug to keep the port active even when it is unplugged.

Problem on startup with laptop combining internal ethernet and WLAN as if there is only one network connection I am trying to fix my mother's Acer Aspire 3680. It has 1GB of RAM, running XP Home SP3. It...


Sounds like the problem may be related to the power management of the internal ethernet card.

You need to check these settings in the Acer ePower Management software (usually installed with the laptop).
E.g. If you the laptop is not charging then you will not be able to see or change any settings on the internal ethernet card.

If you do not have the Acer ePower Manager installed then you can download it here;

  7. retry every step if not successfull until ypu master the environment.
