Re: connection drops with netgear router

You router needs to be replaced,, When it gets loaded, it resets itself as it isnt capable of carrying the load.. if you look at your ip when this happens you would have realised if your ip changes.. You can try resetting the router first but if that fails you will need to replace the router..

How do i network my home pc with a wyse terminal.


That makes sense.

1. Physical network - Depending upon the distance between the terminal and the PC you have the choice of either wired or wireless. It is probably easiest as you have wired cards in both the PC and the terminal and the PC to buy a LAN switch, or use ports on your DSL router (I am assuming that they are also connecting out to the Internet?).

so, plug the PC and the terminal into the switch/DSL router using CAT5 Ethernet cables (straight through ones).

Assuming that you have a DSL router that is handing our DHCP addresses, ensure that both the PC and the terminal are both getting addresses via DHCP. You can easily check this by opening up a command (DOS) window and typing ipconfig. Check that you have an IP address on both boxes (typically 192.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x ranges unless default DSL router config has been changed). In the DOS window on the PC type "ping <remote address you got from terminal>" - you should get a response back if all is well.

2. Now you have connectivity between the PC and the Terminal, you need to get a remote desktop capability if I understood you correctly?

You could use either Windows remote desktop (in XP it is called something like remote assistance). I prefer VNC as it is quick, lightweight and free. You can google this and download both server and client apps.

This should get you into a situation where you can remotely control / view your PC desktop on your terminal. You can of course map drives from one to another.

Let me know if the above needs additional clarification, if it helps please leave feedback accordingly

How to resolve "Limited Or No Connectivity Errors" in Windows

When attempting to set up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.

This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
1. Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article 892896 for details on how to work around this error appropriately.
2. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
3. If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
4. If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
5. If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
6. Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
7. If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
8. If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
9. If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
10. If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

Change operating system

You can keep both Vista and XP. Below is the way to install XP, after Vista was already installed... creating a dual boot. First find the drivers for your network components, wireless card or nic, and save them to an external device such as a floppy disk or flash drive. Then you will need to go into the BIOS on your computer startup. Scroll to the System Configuration tab and go down to the SATA Native Support and change its setting to Disabled. Then hit F10 to Save and Exit. Next, insert your Windows XP CD and create the partition you wish to install XP on. After the installation is complete you should boot automatically into XP. Now you need to move some files. First, make sure you have set your folder options to see hidden files and to show protected operating system files. Then open Windows Explorer and go to the drive where Vista is installed. Copy the folder Boot, and the files bootmgr, boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM and ntldr and paste them to the root of your XP drive. Then download Vista Boot Pro and save it to your desktop or somewhere else that you can easily access. Unless you already have .Net Framework (v2.0 at least) it will redirect you to a Microsoft page where you can download this necessary component. Install and run Vista Boot Pro and open the "Bootloader" tab. Select "Reinstall the Vista bootloader" and press Apply. Then go to the Manage OS Entries tab and select "Add new operating system entry" and make sure you select "Windows Legacy". Give the new entry a name (ie: Windows XP) and select the drive letter you have XP on and then select Apply. You can also choose which entry you would like as the default the system will boot to. And now you should be able to dual boot between Vista and a previous OS. Thank you! Sabharish

Wireless problem

Hello router_lost

I believe you are correct in your assessment that the issue is related to your router. Likely, that issue involves configuration - of your router and/or your laptop computer.

(01) Is the computer that is running Vista connecting to the Internet (via the router) using a wireless network adapter or a wired network adapter?

(02) Assuming that the Vista computer is connecting to the Internet wirelessly, please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and version of your router.

If the Vista computer is connecting "wired" and not "wirelessly" AND you have no other devices on your LAN (home network) that are successfully connecting to the Internet wirelessly through this router, then, it's possible that the router's radio is not enabled. However, if the laptop is "seeing" your router, then, of course, that isn't the case.

(03) Are you sure you are attempting to connect to the correct wireless router from your laptop?

I've seen it quite often where users will think they're connecting (or trying to connect) through their own router when, in fact, the router is a neighbor's (not their own).

(06) You can avoid this possibility by assigning an unique SSID to your wireless radio. In other words, change the SSID (wireless router's "name") to something other than the manufacturer's default SSID. (e.g. Netgear's default is "netgear" and Linksys's default SSID is "linksys", etc.)

It's best, for security purposes, not to assign a revealing SSID (e.g. "TheSmiths" or "2201YourStreetName", etc). Call it "BlueMoon" or whatever you like. Just something unique yet not revealing of your identity or location.

(07) Please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and revision of your router.

(08) Please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and serial number (or service tag) of your laptop computer.

(09) Please, tell us the operating system that is running on your laptop computer.

W/ this information, we'll be able to provide you with specific instructions for correcting your laptop's connectivity problem at home.

(10) Do you know if you have WEP or WPA encryption enabled on the router?

If you do, then you will need to enter either the router's wireless encryption "password phrase" or the hexadecimal key code password in order for the laptop to be allowed to access the Internet. You should only have to do this one time - then your computer will save the information.

If you've been connecting to free networks fine, then you've likely not been required to enter a password phrase or key in order to connect.

Please, post back here w/ answers to the questions I've asked here along with any other questions, comments, and observations you might have. We'll continue to work w/ you on this issue until it's resolved.

Thank you

Dg 834g router

is this a wireless network?

are you trying to retrieve SECURITY codes, or just basic network settings?

your best bet is probably to log into the router, from the vista laptop, rather than looking at the settings the vista laptop is currently using...

on the vista laptop, open a webbrowser, and type in the ip address for your router.

that is PROBABLY

the username is PROBABLY admin
the password is PROBABLY "password"

from there, if you click on wireless settings, it should show you all the details you need.

did the people who set this network up for you leave any information about username, password, ip addresses, anything like that?

Satellite broadband dropping out - Ipstar Satellite modem - Netgear WGR614v7 Wireless Router

Without knowing more about the network, I would suggest replacing the router and see if the problem goes away. Can you see other computers on the network when this problem is occurring? In other words, is the issue with the internet connection only? Or does all network communications cease to function?
