Hello, You would need an ISP(Internet Service Provider) to connect a wireless router to at the office. You can use a wireless router at home with comcast. Very easy to connect. The router range in price from 30.00 and up. A good one for home would be $40-50.00. A 802.11g wireless router 54Mbps or a 802.11n at 108Mbps. The n router is the newest and fastest but sometimes doesn't work with some applications. The g router is great for the home and is backward compatible with the b devices. Go to www.newegg.com they have great prices and very fast ship. Hope this helps. Thanks

Using d-link glb-802 c router , now purchased another system , from router how should i connect to my another system


if the router is wireless and the new system is wireless ready then the router should pick up the signal fine and run the internet smoothly however some routers come with a security key examples WEP, WPA, WPA 2 these are the most common forms of security if this is the case you will have to enter the key on the router or in the User Manual before you have internet access... if the router is not wireless then you simply buy a new ethernet cable which now are fairly cheap if you know where to go depending on size and plug it in to the router and the appropriate slot on the computer system and this should connect you to the internet... if you system is not wireless but your router is you can now buy wireless cards that fit into the computer which recieves the signal from the router or a wireless adapter which does the same but plugs in via USB. any other information please feel free to talk to me but these options should solve your issue

It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

A Belkin router doesn't usually force the utilities page on you. I would advise checking your start page - you might have set it to your router's homepage by accident.

On the setup for your wireless network through your router, you have to allow access for other devices. Your internet provider should also be able to walk you through this process as they did for me when I had the exact same problem.

I have just purchased a netbook. How do I use a router to connect to the internet. I already have a modem. Do I plug the router into the modem??? How will the netbook pick up the signal. Thanks


If you have an internal modem, just plug the ADSL directly to it. If not, the router is at the same time the modem, just plug the ADSL line to it then connect it to your netbook (of course the modem/router must be configured properly).

NEED AN I.P. ADRESS FOR XBOX 360


This is not recommended, better to have your own internet that way you get uninterrupted while playing instead having to rely on someone else. However, you could buy an extended antenna for your wireless network adapter to reach greater ranges and possibly, maybe, probably, but most not definitely might find someone with a open network. Everyone new is becoming more secure prone so your chances of getting a reliable connection and open connection are slime buddy.

Can no longer pick up router signal


Does the wireless light still lit on the router? You can try changing the channel on the router (1 6 or 11) ans moving the antenna. If those things did not work upgrade the firmware of the router and reset to factory default. Do not forget to save the configuration file before you reset to factory default.

Connecting Dlink DI-514 with my another 3com router (wireless)


No, the router requires an Ethernet cable be plugged into the back of it to receive its Internet signal.

As far as I'm aware there are no consumer-grade routers that will pick up a wireless signal from another router and use that as the Internet source.

Sorry you didn't get the answer you were after. :-\
