Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I am having trouble getting my laptop to connect to the wireless router. It worked before but now I can't seem to get to the set up wizard to re-establish the link. It's a DI-624 D-Link router and it may be something to do with not recognizing the IP address but not sure what to do. Our other laptop is working fine so I don't think its the router. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Try to make sure that you got the right IP adress, and also try to be closer little bit to the wireless router.

HOW DO I SET UP NETGEAR WIRELESS G-ROUTER FOR MY COMPAQ PRESARIO NOTEBOOK PC. I HAVE NORTON ANTI-VIRUS INSTALLED ON MY HP PAVILION. HOW DO I GET IT TO INSTALL ON MY NOTEBOOK PC?


To set up the router, you connect directly to the router with a network cable, log into the router using your Internet browser, to a code like 192.168.0.1, or similar. I suggest that you use the wizard, but be sure to change: Wireless security of WEP and access code of your 10 digit home or cell phone#, change system ID to something you recognize, change router access password AND RECORD IT, change wireless channel to 11 and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones.

With routers, you have to SAVE on each page or loose settings.

Then install the router, and look for it in the wireless connections list on your laptop. Give the access password and you should be good to go. The desktop usually connects via network cable.

Can't get my wireless laptop to work. How do I connect the router to the computer?


First what type of router do you have? What is the model number?
Second ensure that your wireless switch (if your laptop has one) is set to on.
Go into view network connections and ensure your wireless card is enabled.
From you Desktop ensure that you are connected as described in the previous post.
Depending on your router make and model type in the ip address to the router.
Default for linksys is usually 192.168.1.1
DLink is usually192.168.0.1

From here it depends on your specific router.
There should be a wireless setup wizard.

I have a D-Link DI-624 Wireless Router. My Comcast cable high speed does work but none of the wireless laptops are seeing the network. I've unplugged it etc but it still doesn't come up.


There are a few configuration problems that can cause this. lets start with the basics. I will assume two things for this process.
a- that you will be right next to the router with a wireless laptop/computer so we can rule out transmission interference
b- that the laptop/pc that you use has connected to a wireless network before.

Problem #1
the router is not setup to send a wireless signal.

SOLUTION: run the setup wizard and make sure that the wireless options are turned on. If you would like help with getting into the wizard you can consult your manual and if needed i can find out how for you. Its usually a program that is installed or you can connect to your router through your browser for the configuration interface.

Problem #2
the router is transmitting a wireless signal but not the name of the signal (its called the "SSID")

SOLUTION: the same as above you must get access to the settings and make sure that there is a name in the SSID space and that it is transmitting said name.


just starting with the basics like i said we can work our way up if you still need assistance i will help.

it will as long as the modem/router is connected to a phone line, instead of the pc, the only cable connected to the pc should be a ethernet cable; or you have the pc networking set that it connects via another pc instead of through a gateway, re run the wireless network wizard.

I have a linksys WRT546 wireless G router someone gave me. I want to connect it to my laptop which is wireless ready and compatible. What type of software or other directions do I need to make it work...


You don't need any extra software.

Connect ethernet cable between PC and router
On back of router may be a IP number like 192.186.1.1
Open internet explorer and type in this number
It may ask you for a password - try no password or 'admin'
If you cannot guess the password becuase it has been set to an unknown word. reset the router using hidden button on back.
Once you have a menu, use the wizard to input your ISP login name and password.
To set up wireless, set an SSID (any name - e.g. fred).
Try to get wireless working between laptop and router.
Once it works, set a WEP key in the router and computer for better security.

Unable to connect through a N1 Wireless router with more than one user using a IPsec connection. Only one person can cannot and the other gets a timeout.


in order for the laptops to see each other and allow you to work one with the other a network has to be installed and a work group formed.

1. Choose Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
The wizard shows its splash screen.
2. Click Next.
The wizard asks you to type in a name for your network.
3. Type a name for the network.
The name of the network is used for the wireless router's SSID (Service Set Identifier), which the wireless box typically broadcasts to make it easy to connect. The SSID is the name that appears when you try to connect to a wireless network. Each wireless router has a default SSID: tsunami, wireless, and linksys are all common default SSIDs.
4. Unless you already have a network key that you absolutely must use, select the Automatically Assign a Network Key radio button.
5. If your wireless base station and all the wireless cards on your network support WPA (if you have 802.11g, they may or may not; with 802.11b, it's unlikely), check the Use WPA Encryption box.
There is a performance hit for using either WEP or WPA encryption. Your network will run slower — but your neighbor won't be able to look at your files. Fair trade, eh?
6. Click Next.
Behind the scenes, the wizard generates all the information it needs to set up a secure wireless network.
The wizard asks if it can use a "key drive" (USB flash drive) to set up the network.
7. Select the Use a USB Flash Drive radio button.
Select this button if you meet the following requirements:
• You have a key drive (USB flash drive) handy
• A free USB port is on every computer on your network
• All of the computers on your network are running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later
• Your wireless router has a USB port and it understands WSNK (check the manual)
If you don't meet those requirements, then select the Set Up a Network Manually radio button. Then click Next.
• If you click the first button, the wizard takes you through the steps to transfer the settings to all the other computers on the network, as well as the wireless base station. Basically, you schlep the key drive to all the PCs, and they set themselves up.
• If your hardware isn't quite up to the **** Tracy stage yet, the wizard shows you its final instructions.
8. Click Print Network Settings.
The wizard doesn't actually print them. Instead, it opens Notepad and sticks the relevant settings in a new text file.
9. Print the text file and follow the instructions to transfer the settings to each of your wireless devices manually.
It isn't as bad as it looks. See the next section.
Making manual changes So you're stuck with entering wireless network security information by hand. Be of good cheer. The Wireless Network Setup Wizard (see the preceding section) does all the heavy lifting. If you're running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, it's pretty easy:
1. Enter the new settings in your wireless router or access point.
Unfortunately, each one is different. You may have to dig into the router's manual. Usually, once you get inside the router, making the changes is easy. The key you need to enter is the one that was generated by the Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
2. Make sure you update/apply/save the changes to the wireless router before leaving.
Many routers require you to save the changes manually, so they'll be around if the electricity goes out.
3. Choose Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
You see that really confusing splash screen again.
4. Click Next.
The wizard asks for a network name.
5. Type the network name precisely the same way that it appears in the printout from the preceding section.
6. Select the Manually Assign a Network Key radio button and click Next.
The wizard asks you to type the key.
7. Click Next.
You end up at Step 7 in the preceding section, from which point you can print your settings or just close down the wizard.
8. Repeat Steps 3 through 8 on each computer in your wireless network.

Wireless Router


If you clicked repair connection at anytime, you need to reset the router, by way of a reset button on the rear or front, go to your wired network card properties in control panel>network connections, click TCP/IP line, click properties again and select obtain ip address automatically. 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.
