Hi,
So you have your computer wired to a router, isn't it? Try opening the CMD and input ping 192.168.1.1 (this is the default address for a router, if you had changed it for some reason then you should type ping 'default address' ) and you should see something like "reply ...". If you see something like "request timed out" then reset the router to factory defaults. Try pinging again your router, if you still see "request time out" then theres a hardware error on either the computer or the router.
Hope this works!

You have to configure port forwarding in your router. Do you know what ports are used by "Buddy for CLZ Barry" and "First Class" (it probably uses port 21)? After you figure out the port numbers, follow the port forwarding steps documented in the router manual. Here's the link to the router manual:

Ok, here's the issue I'm having. I have my regular computer in one room. I got a new pc for another room. I was trying to hook up the Belkin wireless router too it, and something isn't working...


the problem is likely you need to load up your computer's wireless manager- for instance, is there an icon that looks like a fan or a staircase? that would be the manager for your connection. At that point you should be able to setup the connection w/ the right wireless key/passcode in the pc and have all the wireless issues resolved (basically you'd be looking for something like Intel Proset, Dell Wireless Utility, or other utility/manager (it will usually have "Wireless Utility" in the name somewhere... makes it easier to find!)

I have a d-link extreme g attached to a cable modem; the d-link is set for wirless. I can pick up the d-link on my ipod and laptop, however it only provides local access; no internet. I've tried everything...


I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way so we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

If your only getting local access that indicates that the router is broadcasting the wireless signal but unfortunately there is a connection issue between either the modem and router or the modem and the internet service provider. The first step is to verify that your modem is online with a good connection. If you have a working internet based phone than your in good shape. If not than you will need to research the light patterns of your modem or bypass the router to determine weather or not you have a connection to the ISP. The first step in trouble shooting a connection issue between the modem and router is to disconnect the Ethernet cable from the modem and the router than reconnect it. Make sure that the cable is connected to the correct ports. Next you will want to power cycle the computer, modem, and router. To do this you will need to shout down the computer and disconnect the power cables from both the modem and router. Allow all devices to remain off for 2 minutes. Plug the modem in first. Wait for the modem to establish a connection with the internet service provider(ISP). Depending on the type of modem this can take up to 5 minutes. After a connection to the ISP has been made reconnect the power to the router. Wait about another 2 minutes for the router to establish a connection with the modem then turn on the computers in the home. From this point you will need to retest.
If you still only have local access than there is a good chance there is an issue this either the Ethernet port on the modem or router. To trouble shoot the Ethernet port on the modem you can bypass the router and power cycle the modem and PC again. If the PC has no access wile directly connect to the modem than there is an issue with the modem and will need to be replaced. The good news is that most internet service providers will replace the modem for free. If all the trouble shooting steps above have failed than you will need to contact the router manufacture directly.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

Router set up is very easy. You will need to access the router set up interface to make changes on the router.

If you are not able to go online using the router then you will need to check the settings of the router.
First make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected directly to the modem without the router.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem only then your modem is working properly, we will need to check the settings of the router.find network key.


Router set up for Cable Internet service provider :

This connection type uses the MAC address of the main computer to identify your connection. They generally register the MAC address of the main computer. So the MAC address is everything in this connection type. Now we set up router using the MAC address of the main computer. Main computer is the computer which was able to go online through the modem. Use only the main computer to set uo the router.
Connect the modem and the computer to the router . Check the IP address on the computer.
According to the Default gateway value open the set up interface of the router. Once you open the set up interface, you will need to clone the MAC address of the computer. Then change the wireless settings on the router and your router is ready to go.

Router set up for DSL Internet service provider.

What is DSL connection?
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is a high-speed Internet service that competes with cable Internet to provide online access to local customers. DSL operates over standard copper telephone lines like dial-up service, but is many times faster than dial-up. In addition to being faster than dial-up, DSL does not tie up the phone line. Coexisting with telephone service in this way allows users to surf the Net and use the phone at the same time.

There are two types of DSL connection

1 ) PPPOE : In this connection type you will get user name and password from the Internet service provider. Your computer will not be able to go online when connected to the modem only. You can open the router set up and change the Internet connection type to pppoe and type the user name and password for the ISP. After that change the wireless settings of the router and it will be ready to go.
2) DHCP : In this connection type your computer will be able to go online when you connect it directly to the modem.
you don't require the user anme and password for the ISP.
In this connection your computer will get a private IP address from the router. According to this the IP address of your router will change. Change the wireless settings of the router and it will be ready to go online.

Wireless Network working on laptop, lost internet on desktop.


If you disconnect the desktop from the modem, were you able to get an Internet connection in your laptop?
In order to get Internet connectivity on your desktop at the same time with the laptop, then the desktop needs to be connected to the router. It should be connected to one of the Ethernet ports at the back of the router. Since, your desktop doesn't have an Ethernet port, then you need to connect a USB to Ethernet adapter to your desktop. Then from that adapter, you will connect to it an Ethernet cable going to the router.

You may check the following models:
Linksys USB200M
Linksys USB100TX
Belkin Gigabit USB 2.0 Network Adapter(F5D5055)
D-Link DUB-E100

There are other brands that offer USB to Ethernet adapters that you can check.

Hope this helps!

No connect with 3com router so what to do


A router connects to a modem. It also connects to computers in your building. Which end of this are you having trouble with? You can tell what is connected to your router by the lights on the front of it. There should be a light labelled WAN, modem or Internet. Is it lit up? There should be other lights for the connections to computers. Are they lit up? Is it a wireless router and are you connected to it that way? If so, other questions must be answered. On the internet side, check your modem to see if it has connected to the outside world. Consult the manual to see what the lights indicate. There is a procedure that must be followed to make the connection to your internet service provider, including making arrangements to pay for the service and getting a user name and password. If you want help on that from here, you must provide the name of your service provider and a description of the modem and its lights and tell us what you have done so far. On the computer side, you need cables to connect the computers to the router. The operating system on the computer may make the connection automatically, but quite likely some setup will be necessary. On a Windows computer, you would begin in Start-control panel-networking-Network Setup Wizard.
