Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Internet connection My friend who has the Linksys1 wireless broadband router hooked up although she's not using it with her Gateway desktop. We're trying to see if we can use her Dell Inspiron 2500 wirelessly. Gets an error message. So we have it plugged in, and it's getting power, but when I go to Internet Explorer get the "page cannot be displayed" screen. I've heard there are ways to search for the wireless service, but would be happy just with the internet connection. I have the add/remove program screen up, and see that it shows Netgear and "2 wire wireless client" (not sure what that means. Any suggestions. Final question, on the gateway desktop keyboard, which only she uses, and from which I'm typing I notice that I'm typing but nothing is showing up on the screen. Would you know why.

The ISP modem connects to the wireless routers main port. Then connect the PC to any other port on the router.


Use the default wireless settings that Belkin provides. There is a small tag under the unit with the default information. Or, use custom settings in the web admin.

Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router connection trouble


You will need to logon the router via the computer, and create a PPPOE internet connection. If you cannot connect to the router wirelessly my may need to use a cat5 cable between the computer and the router. The user manual that came with the router will show you how to do this. If you do not have the manual. Do the following: open internet explorer, in the address window type the IP of the router "example" http://192.168.2.1 your router IP should be on the bottom of the router. If not click start/run, type ipconfig at the > the router ip is listed at "default gateway".once you get to the routers logon page enter one of the following: username "leave blank" – username " admin " -or- username "admin" - password 1234 –or- leave password field blank.once logged on the router go to internet connections and select PPPOE enter the username and password provided by your ISP save the settings and you should make the internet
connection now. BPCS
