If you are connecting to the internet, your network must use an un-assigned sub-net. You should use 192.168.1.1 - 255 with a mask of 255.255.255.0. Your router, linksys, will defaut to this. You should use dynamic addressing on the computers you want to connect, unless there is a reason that you need to use static addressing. If you need to use static addressing, you need to configure your router to only use say 192.168.1.10 - 20 for dynamic addressing. then configure your PC's to use 192.168.1.11 & 12 or anything else outside of the dynamic addressing.

I suspect your router is set for dynamic addressing and the static address that you are trying to use is in the dynamic range and your router will not see you PC's.

Wireless radio switch


Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

If your dell has an antenna sticking out of the back, then you have wifi, otherwise I believe this model needs a wireless card. If you do have wifi, here's how to turn it on.

- click Start,
- choose Control Panel on the right
- If the top right says 'View by: Category'
click the down arrow on the right and choose either Large Icons
or Small Icons.
- choose Network and Sharing Center
- you will now see your wireless network if the adapter is on,
if it is not on, chick on Change Adapter Settings on top left
- two connections typically show up:
1. Local Area Connection and
2. Wireless Connection
- right click the Wireless Connection,
- choose Status

> the next window lets you Enable your wireless device, check its
Properties, or Diagnose connection issues.

Let me repeat from above:
Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

Just reverse this later if you want to go back to a wired connection on the desktop machine. I use all WIFI at home, then I connect my laptop by a cable to my router if I have an issue to solve, which is maybe once every two years.

It's easier when you are doing it than it may seem just reading this.

Hope this helps
All the best to you,

How to connect wifi in msi ms-145 notebook?


Based on the specs I looked up. The laptop does not come suppied with a wireless network interface.
These are the specs based on the limited part number given.
You will have to get and install the PCIe mini card / Wifi controller.
Wireless LAN Support a full-height PCIe mini card (MS-6894 and MS-6890 applied here)

You can also find many good USB WIFI adapters that will also work.

I am trying to connect my toshiba a15-5129 in my house it will not connect to broadband


Hi, we have two ways to connect to broadband, via wired or wireless, at the device manager please do check if the LAN drivers are enabled, if enabled, via wired connection, simply put the RJ45 jack from LAN port of your router to LAN port of your notebook, if configuration is already set in your Router LAN, it will just automatically connect. If connecting via wireless press wifi button to activate wifi connection then windows will pop for your access credentials. simply put the password for your connection once the name of the site displayed.

Where is the switch to conect to wireless broadband


hi, not all desktops have built-in wifi, though some do, depending on your os: click "start" (bottom left) - right click "my computer" (xp) "computer" (vista) - click "manage" - click "device manager" all the devices will show up near the middle you should find "network adapters" - click the "+" sign to expand it - the local area wired network should say: lan or 10/100 if you have a wifi installed and configured, it should say wireless etc. - if that's there, go to "start" "control panel" "network connections" here you should see the wifi connection - right click on the wifi - click "enable" if it is disabled. then click "view available wireless networks" choose the connection - enter the password if secured - connect. peace, abz

Wifi laptop will not print to printer - not a wifi printer


Check if the printer has a wireless option. Actually this issue is complex. First thing first, you can print wirelessly from your laptop within the WIFI range in a case that your printer do have wireless on in. It is impossible to print wirelessly from the wired printer through LAN.

One thing, I guess you don't have a wireless router. You need to have a wireless router like LINKSYS that is easy to setup then try to connect wirelessly to the wired printer. There I am not too sure if your can do a printing option from your laptop wirelessly.

Lastly, check if you have a ROUTER and need to set it up on your laptop and on the network LAN. You may now have a NETWORK printer in this regards. Thank you.

Wifi connection


hello
1. what is the model number of your adapter?
2. what is the operating system of your computer?
3. did you install the wireless adapter on your pc or is it a built in wireless adapter?
-- if you install another wireless adapter on your pc, possible that its the one causing the conflict between the two utility. I suggest to disable the other adapter before installing the other wireless adapter
-- if the wireless adapter is a built in wireless adapter and you are using a windows xp computer, chances are that the built in utility and the xp wzc are the one causing the problem. you have to disable one of this utility to make your connection working
-- the utility is sometimes located at your system. if you wish to use the utility you have to disable the wzx or the other way around.
