Cant Aquire IP Address Wirelessly

Hi My freind came to visit me and he sat in his car while he waited for me and tried to connect to my router. He is able to see the router but cant aquire a IP Adress. He had the correct WEP Encryption key entered and we even tried a diffrent key with just all 1's and he still cant get a IP adress. He has been able to connect just fine in the past. I have check all settings and they seem fine I dont think I have changed any major setting since he last connected except a few firewall exceptions. Those would be to allow Limewire to connect to the net. The only block I see in the fire wall is Deny LAN,* WAN,* *,3711
Could this be causing this. He knows his networking and his laptop was connected to his router shortly before this and he knows its not his laptop. I hope someone can help the only other thing I can think is reseting the router to default but I dont want to if not needed as I do want to have to go through setting every thing again. also I did unplug and reset the router and that did not help ethier

Try this... connect the laptop directly to the router using a cable. get into the router interface and disable the wep security. Once it is disabled try connecting the laptop. your computer will ask you that network is not secured and ask if you want to connect anyway. just connect your laptop without the WEP key, if it connects, just go ahead and enable the security again. hope this helps.

I don't get my IP address


Sorry, that picture didn't come though.

Is DHCP turned on? Without more details, I can't help you any more than that.

I full signal strength from my rounter but wont connect


Hi there,

This could be due to wrong DNS settings or IP Address. You will need to go in to your network connections by doing the following: "Start, "Control Panel", "Network Connections" and then right click on your wireless connection and select "Properties", then when the new window opens scroll down to something called Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
58eb063.jpg
Open this by clicking "Properties" then adjust the settings as follows:
64ff617.jpg
- Obtain an IP address automatically
- Obtain DNS server address automatically

Then configure your router to assign the IP Address and DNS Settings automatically and your internet should work.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

I have 3 laptops connected to a bell 2wire router. They are all able to connect wirelessly to the router and access the internet fine. But I am trying to connect my hp2605dn printer to the router with a...


To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0

If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

Linksys router connects and says it has an excellent signal but will not aquire an address please help


Try a hardwire computer and get into the setup page of the router by typing 192.168.1.1 on your browser . Make sure you have changed the SSID or the network name of your router to your choice. Check if you have security set. If you have one make sure they match your computer.

Can only connect 1 computer to router


You might need to check if your laptop is able to get a valid IP address when connected wirelessly to the router. You can go to the Control Panel then click on network connections and look for wireless network connection. Right click the wireless network connection then click properties. Click the support tab and there you will see the IP address. You should not be getting 169.254.x.x. Where X represents numbers.


An IP address is very important. Make sure you're getting a correct IP address and it should be the IP address provided by your router. Without a valid IP address, you won't be able to get onlinwe. Your wireless connection can tell you that its connected eventhough its not getting a valid IP address.

Problems with my new WNR834B


try to customize your wireless settings. change the wireless name/ssid to something else and change the wireless channel as well. verify also if there's a wireless security enabled, if it has you need to use the correct wireless security/network key when connecting your laptop wirelessly. you can go to the router's setup page to verify your wireless settings by typing the ip address of your router to the address bar of your web browser, http://192.168.1.1 (note: by default the ip address of the router is 192.168.1.1 unless you have changed it to something else. the default username is "admin" and the default password is "password")

hope this'll help you

ciao!

Router Connectivity


It will be one of two things or both - either your computer is not setup for DHCP or your router is using the same IP address as your ISP or both.

To check ISP IP address connect your computer to your modem then: from start => run => CMD (hit enter after this)
a command window opens, type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes.
The line with "IP address" gives you your ISP IP addr.
Compare this with what you get from your router manual if they are the same then do the following:

To configure your computer to use a DHCP IP address, go to the Control panel => network connections => Properties (right click on your default connection) => double click Internet protocol (From general tab) => (a new window pops up) from the general tab ensure that "obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.

To change the IP address of your router check your manual and do the following:
IP Addr => 10.10.1.1
Sub net mask => 255.255.0.0
Default gateway => IP address from your ISP
Make sure to the router is set to act as a DHCP server.

You should be up and running.

Setup


If that is the report that the laptop gives for an IP address, then you have to change the IP address settings.
Go into your network settings, and tell it to automatically aquire an address, and DNS.
Once you click OK, it should sense the DCHP from the router.
If the IP is already set to automatically aquire, then the router needs to be reset to factory defaults. That should put you back to the 192.168.2.xxx settings.

what you do is to reboot your desktop and everything will be fine or either unplug or disable and enable the status of the connestion. But the best way is to reboot the system. Good luck
