Hi sir,

Hope this will give you an idea. Hope the wireless signal is fine when connecting to wireless router. But I pressumed there's no problem with your firewalls and basic installation procedures. And it gives me a hint that you can run using your fren wireless router. Now, check the routers name that exactly searched from Network Wireless Setup Wizard at control panel. If there's a need to configure internet connection at routers setup menu please do. Please refer also your assigned IP by your ISP, gateway, dns1 and dns2 if your connection type is Static. If it is dynamic or PPPOE and other connection type please ask assistance with your ISP for the entries.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano

Make sure that your wireless is set to access point only and not firewall mode.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Cannot connect wireless device


If you have the correct wireless security and the laptop wont connect wirelessly, the best thing that you can do here is to access the router setup page and change some wireless settings on the router like the wireless channel , I advice you set the wireless channel to 11 then after that try to connect your laptop again to the wireless network and by the way change also the SSID or wireless network name of the router....

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer


Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.

No internet connection with laptop computers in home


Good day!

If your Desktop computer is hardwired to the router and your laptop computers can't connect wirelessly, it could be your wireless computers are not synchronized with your router by not having the same settings as the router.

You can use the desktop machine to access your router web interface (setup page) to check the wireless settings such as SSID (Network Name-> Name of your wireless signal shown on your laptop computers), channel and security (wether it is WEP or WPA encryption)

The channel and network name will be automatically detected by the wireless computers. If you have an encryption/security on the router, you need to type the password on the wireless computers for them to authenticate.

Try these and post back if there's any progress
