The easiest thing would be to ask your neice what she did and why and get her to reverse everything she did - as it may be more than just an alteration to the wireless connection.
If she doesn't, I would proceed to go to start menu, All Programs, Administrator Tools. There should be a program called Services. It's a list of all the programs (whether active or not) and is in alphabetical order. Go down the list to TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper. If that service is in stopped state, then please restart it by highlighting it and clicking enter. And click start. See if your wireless connection will then work. If it doesn't, I'd suggest to reinstall your wireless software. I hope it all works out for you. Good luck. If any of my ideas work, please do rate me. Thanks.

Hi, my Belkin N Wireless router works in some way fine with both Wired and Wireless connection, but there is a problem, it will only allow me to connect wired to my computer and not to my PlayStation 3......


You may need to change settings in your router to enable your online games to work. Some games need to use specific ports; these ports may be closed due to the router's firewall. Please refer to your game's documentation for the ports required.

Use the following answer to configure these ports in your router.



In order to configure this, you need to know:

- The IP address of the computer or device to have the port forwarded to.

- The port numbers to be used and whether these are TCP or UDP ports

(Note: We recommend you use a computer that has a wired connection to the router.)

Setup steps:

  1. Open a Web Browser on the computer. Type in http://192.168.2.1
  2. In the address bar of the Web Browser type Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.

  1. Click on Virtual Servers under Firewall in the menu on the left

  1. Enter the following information
    • Click Enabled
    • Type a general description of the application i.e.. Remote Desktop
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Inbound port fields
    • Select TCP, UDP, or BOTH for the Type.
    • Private IP address: Enter the IP address of the computer you want grant access too.
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Private port fields.

How to turn on a dhcp on a rca model dcm425 cable modem?


Hi there,
Enabling DHCP at the Client To enable the Windows NT DHCP client, you must log on as administrator at the Windows NT client.

Normally, you enable DHCP as part of the installation procedure for Microsoft TCP/IP, however, you can use this procedure if you have manually configured TCP/IP:
  1. Run Control Panel and choose Network.

    The Network Settings dialog box appears.
  2. Under Installed Network Software, select TCP/IP Protocol and then choose configure.

    The TCP/IP configuration dialog box appears.
  3. Select Enable Automatic DHCP Configuration.

    A Microsoft (MS) TCP/IP message appears, indicating that the DHCP Protocol attempts to configure the server automatically during system initialization.
  4. Choose Yes.

    A MS TCP/IP Configuration dialog box appears, displaying current TCP/IP configuration parameters. The IP Address and Subnet Mask boxes are not available (grayed out) and the manually configured values are no longer displayed.
  5. Choose OK to return to the Network Settings dialog box.
  6. Choose OK again.
  7. Shut down and restart the computer.
To enable DHCP on a Windows for Workgroups client if TCP/IP is not installed yet:
  1. Use Network Setup to install the MS TCP/IP-32 3.11 protocol.
  2. In the MS TCP/IP Configuration dialog box, select the Enable Automatic DHCP Configuration check box, and choose Continue.
  3. Restart the computer to initialize TCP/IP using DHCP.
To enable DHCP on a Windows for Workgroups client if TCP/IP is installed:
  1. To access the Network Drivers dialog box, run Network Setup.
  2. Select Microsoft TCP/IP-32 3.11, and then choose Setup.
  3. In the MS TCP/IP Configuration dialog box, select the Enable Automatic DHCP Configuration check box, and choose continue.

    A message box appears indicating that the configuration of DHCP overrides any values established locally.
  4. Choose Yes.
  5. To initialize TCP/IP using DHCP information, restart the computer.

Lost wireless connection. Diagnosis said network connection o.k but cable not connected to network adapter for local area connections. cheked and all cables connected even changed blue line ethernet...


Check if the wireless works by directly connecting to the Lan port and the system. If it works, you may have to check for the Wireless Home Setup. Check if there are changes made to the Freequencies. 802.3 g usually gives max range. In case you are working at a distance which the signal wouldnt cover, the system can show network not detected. Also try to work on a Manual Address mode than DHCP and find if the network is getting detected. Check if the WNC is enabled and if working on DHCP, try do a tcp ip reset using the command from the command prompt... by using the command ipconfig /release.
and then ipconfig /renew
if the ip is renewed successfully, the wireless router is allocating the new tcp ip address and your network should work. Good luck.

Wireless connection


Start->Settings->Control Panel. Double click in Internet Options.

On the Connections tab, click on Never Dial a Connection. While you're there, click on LAN settings. Automatically detect settings should be checked, but normally nothing else should be checked.

If this doesn't help, you may need to rebuild the stack:
Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine

At this point you can run the setup wizard again if you wish using the rj45 cable You should set up the router using an RJ45 lan cable which comes with the unit and get into the routers settings by typing it's ip address in your web browser 192.168.0.1. Check that DHCP is set at enabled to give your pc's an automatic ip address. Check that wireless is also enabled and save any changed settings. Go to the properties of your pc's wireless adapter in control panel network connections and on its TCP/IP line check that obtain ip address automatically is ticked. when you have set up your wireless connection and the router is set up correctly, disconnect the rj45 cable and if neccassary dissable the wired network card so as the router looks for your wireless adapter and gives it an ip address. When a connection is found by your wireless connection you need to go into the router again and set up your wireless security, using whatever method you choose eg WEP or WPA PSK. You need to select the numbers and letters mixture pass phrase that you use for encyption and use the same numbers in the wireless adapter when it asks for the passkey no., you should then be able to connect again securely.
