Question about MSI Wireless-G RG54G3 Router
Hi, I have an IBM Thinkpad T42 from my office. I used to connect on the wireless network of my home without problem. Last week my computer has some probelem and the PC support of the company reinstalled the system. Since then i am facing some problem to connect on my wireless at home. After some minutes or hours of connection, my internet will stop all of a sudden. Although my computes shows that i am connected to the network, i can't have internet. Then i will have internet for an other 10 to 20 minutes if i restart my computer. Th same problem happen if i am using the cable to connect to my router. My flatmates are OK, they don't have any problem with their computers.
When you connected to the internet via wireless, click start, click run, when box appears type CMD then press enter, when black screen appears, tupe in IPCONFIG then look for the word gateway below it will have a set of numbers at the side of it like 192.168.1.2 copy them down, next open the internet explorer and in the address bar type in the numbers with a dot in-between them three dots in total then press enter, your router settings will open up on screen, look for the wireless tab then have a look for what the time out settings are set for and change them for 99 minutes, sometime they are factory set for 10 min idle time then turn you off. When you have changed to 99 Mins apply / save changes then switch off the router only for 10 seconds then turn back on, then turn off your lap top and then restart it after 10 seconds,
let me know??

Wireless routers are used to connect computers into a network without running network cables throughout your home or office. Netgear wireless router settings must be changed using the router's Web-based interface. Any computer that is "hard wired" with a network cable to the router, rather than on a wireless connection, can be used to access the router. From the Settings menu, options such as "Encryption," "Network setup details" and "Passwords" can be customized.
On a computer that is connected to the router with a network cable, open any Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. In the address bar, type "192.168.0.1" (without the quotes) and press "Enter." This will bring up the login prompt for most Netgear wireless routers. If that doesn't work, try "www.routerlogin.net", "192.168.0.5", or "10.1.10.1" until the login window appears.
Type "admin" in the Username field, type "password" in the Password field and click "OK." If the password fails, try "1234," "Password" with a capital "P" or "admin". Once you enter the proper credentials, the settings screen will open.
Make any required changes to the settings. Under Security section, it is possible to specify a new username and password for added security. Once you have saved your changes, close the window, and the system will automatically log you out.

Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.
Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.
In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.
Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.
If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.
If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.
Reset all devices.
The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.
Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.
Plug them back in and restart your computer.
Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.
If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.
Bypass your wireless router.
If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.
The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.
Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.
Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.
If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.
Hope this helps

Go to control panel>network connections, right click, then properties, then click the TCP/IP line, properties again and ensure that 'obtain ip address automatically' is ticked, click ok, then close down the window, right click on the network icon again and then properties, then view wireless connections.
Any that appear in this list including your own if it shows need to be deleted, then when you close the window a pop up should appear in the task bar saying wireless networks detected, click the bubble then highlight your connection, click connect and if security is turned on you will be prompted to enter the passkey.
In the routers settings ensure that DHCP is enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically, then reboot the router if neccasary.
