How to connect my self and make my IP address ?


you can set your laptop up to detect ip address automatically in its network settings. if you had provided the operating system it would have helped to narrow down how to do this. If you had told us how you plan to connect to the router this also would have been helpful. Are you connecting via blue cat5 ethernet cable or via wireless. If it is wireless your laptop should detect the wireless network and you can ask it to connect to it. If the wireless link is encrypted you need to log into the router via ethernet cable and look for the securirty settings on the wireless and find out what the encryption code is. Usually the router will use what is called an internal IP address range. the subnet is usually class c being 255.255.255.0 and the ip address default gateway IP address is usually either 10.0.0.1 or 198.168.0.1 and this can be put into the browser to log into the router. When you set the laptop to automatically obtain the IP address the Wireless Router has a DHCP server that manages the leases of IP addresses to computers connected to it. However if you are connecting the Wireless Router into an existing network with another router you will need to set the IP address to the next IP address eg 10.0.0.1 on existing router make second router 10.0.0.2> if you have a DCHP server on the wireless turn it off if you have a DCHP server on the existing router otherwise you have confusion as to which DHCP server to listen too on your network.Make sure the DHCP router does not allocate at least the first 10 addresses eg 10.0.0.1 to 10.0.0.10 to allow for the routers and printers on your network that may need dedicated IP addresses (Static IP addresses)

Try assigning your laptop a static IP. To do this in Windows:

  • Open Windows Start menu.
  • Open Control Panel.
  • Classic view: Open Network Connections
    Category view: Select Network and Internet Connections, and thenNetwork Connections.
  • Double-click on your active LAN or Internet connection.
  • Click Properties
  • In the General tab, highlight the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item, and clickProperties.
  • In the General tab, click Use the following IP address, and enter: - IP address. The static IP address you want to assign to this computer (try 192.168.1.110 to start). - Subnet mask. Subnet mask used by your router (try 255.255.255.0 to start). - Default gateway. IP address of your router's default gateway (try 192.168.1.1 to start).
  • In Use the following DNS server addresses, enter all the IP addressses for the DNS servers your router uses (or you can try your router's address, probably 192.168.1.1).
  • Click OK.

The one that is missing in the network is the printer.So try to reconfigure the IP of the printer again using the wireless wizard in the printer manager. Or go to Using the HP Network Diagnostic Utility in Windows - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Also ; Very seldom does the printer itself cause problems. To determine if you have printer trouble, do the following:
  • If you're using a wireless connection, see if the wireless indicator lamp is illuminated? Can you turn on the wireless radio from the control panel of the printer?
  • Print a Network Configuration page and a Wireless Network Test report from your printer's control panel, if available.
    • Does the Wireless Network Test report indicate trouble?
    • Does the report indicate that the printer is connected to your wireless router, and not to a neighbor's? The network name the printer is connected to will be shown on the both the Network Configuration page and Wireless Network Test report.
    • Compare the printer's IP address [X]
      IP address
      An IP address is a series of numbers by which computers, printers and other devices on a network are known. An IP address is usually issued by the local wireless router (network) from its DHCP service. A device is given an IP address that is similar to the wireless router's IP address. For example, if the wireless router's IP address is 192.168.1.1, a printer may be given an IP address of 192.168.1.5. to the gateway IP address [X]
      Gateway IP address
      This is the IP address of your wireless router. . They should have a similar format (for example, the gateway IP address might be 192.168.0.1 and the printer IP address 192.168.0.5). If the printer has an IP address similar to 169.254.XXX.XXX, it probably is not connected to your wireless network.
    • On some printers, the Network Configuration page will list all wireless networks detected in your area. Is your network listed among those found? Does it have good signal strength?
    • Are there several wireless networks on your same channel or using channels close to your channel? You should use a channel at least 5 channels away from the closest used channel. Consider changing your wireless router's channel to 1, 6 or 11.
  • Are there any error messages on the printer or unexpected blinking lights (consult your manual to determine what to expect)?
  • Reset your printer (usually by removing the power cord from the back of the printer, waiting 30 seconds and then reconnecting the cord. Consult your manual for specifics).
  • Restart your wireless router [X]
    Wireless router
    A wireless router is networking hardware that allows both wired and wireless devices to connect to a network. When connected to a wireless router, devices such as computers, printers, and other Wi-Fi enabled electronics can share one Internet connection AND connect to each other. Connections can be made to the wireless router through a wireless connection or a wired connection using an Ethernet cable. by unplugging the power cord, waiting 60 seconds, then reconnecting the cord to the wireless router.

Where do i find network key for canon mx340. i am trying to set up wireless connection. I cannot complete wireless connection


The network key is also known as the encryption key or passphrase. It is the password on your wireless network that you have to type in other the computer with a wireless device to connect to the Internet. You normally set it using by connecting to your wireless router using its IP address when it is connected to a computer. Use the Internet to find the default IP address for your wireless router. It is normally in the form 168.192.1.1 or something similar.

My HP 309 series printer will not stay connected to my wireless network. Can someone help? I end up having to go through wireless network wizard all over again with my WEP password. Very time consuming!


Hello geekgurl !

There are a few things you have to check

When choosing a location for your wireless router, avoid having the following items between the wireless router and wireless devices on the network: long distances, walls, other wireless devices (like cordless phones), and large appliances.

Don't use two wireless routers in your home unless you are very knowledgeable about wireless networking. If your Internet Service Provider (ISP) provides your wireless router as part of their equipment, don't add another wireless router to it or attempt to change the existing settings without the ISP's help or knowledge.

Make the following settings on your wireless router, or verify that they've already been made:

1-Change the manufacturer's default name for the network name (SSID) to something unique.

2-Set the broadcast SSID to "on" or "enable". Note that "on" or "enable" is typically the default setting.

On the printer:

1- See if the wireless indicator lamp is illuminated. Can you turn on the wireless radio from the control panel of the printer?

Print a Network Configuration page and a Wireless Network Test report from your printer's control panel, if available.

* Does the Wireless Network Test report indicate trouble?

* Do the reports indicate that the printer is connected to your wireless router, and not to a neighbor's? The network name the printer is connected to will be shown on the both the Network Configuration page and Wireless Network Test report.

* Compare the printer's IP address to the gateway IP address. They should have a similar format (for example, the gateway IP address might be 192.168.0.1 and the printer IP address 192.168.0.5). If the printer has an IP address similar to 169.254.XXX.XXX, it probably is not connected to your wireless network.

* On some printers, the Network Configuration Page will list all wireless networks detected in your area. Is your network listed among those found? Does it have good signal strength?

* Are there several networks on your same channel or using channels close to your channel? You should use a channel at least 5 channels away from the closest used channel. Consider changing your wireless router's channel to 1, 6 or 11.

* Make sure your computer is not connected through a VPN (Virtual Private Network). You cannot access devices on your wireless network while connected to a VPN.

* Disable your operating system's firewall and your security system's firewall and re-test. If this fixes the problem open ports in the firewall.

Check if theres anyway to set an Static IP (does not change) on your printer instead of a Dynamic Hp (constantly changes)

Good Luck !

Intermittent wireless Internet access


The problem started after you added the additional devices. Now you probably have all of your devices using DHCP which means the router provides an IP Address for your devices. Change the devices to have a fixed ip address. You may have to check the router for the default internal ip address, but it is probably 192.168.1.1 as the gateway. With the PC and laptop go to the control panel, then network connections, right clip on the connection and select properties, then scoll down the window until you see tcp/ip connection, select properties from the tab options below and set the ip address of each machine to 192.168.1.10, 192.168.1.11 and 192.168.1.12. set the gateway to 192.168.1.1 and set the dns ip to 192.168.1.1. Now if you have a different gateway address, use that as applied above. Save the settings and retry your connections.

Here is way you are probably having problems, wireless networks will drop and reconnect more often than a cable connection. If you were using just a cable connection, there would be less of a problem. When DHCP is being used and a computer drops the connection, it could get a totally different ip assignment the next time (a matter of less than a second of time). When that happens the original connection is lost. By fixing the ip address to be static, any time you reconnect via wireless, it uses exactly the same address, thus maintaining the connection.

Try it out and leave feedback if it works for you, otherwise send me the results of the test.

A router between your ISP and the switch will assign addresses to your PC, the printers, whatever you connect.

Or, if just the one computer needs access to the Internet and the printers, you can install/configure a second Ethernet port in the PC, connect it and the printers to the switch, and give them all static IPs in a private address space (e.g., 192.168.1.0/24)

RE: My posted. Connecting DSL/Router to DIR-628 internet router


Installing a router to work as the second one on a home networkrequires special configuration. Do the following on the second routerto ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly:1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode.Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; thesemust be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for detailson its client mode configuration support.

2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP addresssetting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a tworouter environment. Check the second router's IP address value andreset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of thefirst router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).

3. Disable DHCP- To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the homenetwork, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.

(My netgear router supports client mode. The 2wire supports bridged and router mode. My 2wire is the main router. I set up my netgear using my laptop. Once you change the address on the router.. You will only be able to directly access through the main router to the 2701.)

Configure your 2701 IP address to a static address in the 192.168.2.1 range and diable DHCP. Only 1 router can run the DHCP service. To disable Dhcp on the 2701.... log on to 2701> click on home network>advanced settings>uncheck enable DHCP>Next section is Public routed subinterface...Check enable and Aout Firewall Open>Input your main router address and mask>save config..

This worked with the Netgear router.. May not with your router. Good Luck! Hope this helps!
