I'm trying to add a new laptop to my home wireless network using my Linksys WRT54G router. The wireless setup program has taken me as far as hooking the laptop to the router and accessing the web page...


See: http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G on the side it will ask you for information, then you can down load the system. It also gives you step by stem setup instructions.

How to hook up a wireless router.


<ol> <li> <p>Open the wireless router box and examine the contents. You should have the router, a setup CD-ROM, a network cable and a power adapter. If any of these are missing call the company on the box.Put the setup CD in the<a href="http://www.ehow.com/computers/">computer</a>. A screen will come up and ask you if you want to start the setup. All this CD is doing is taking you step by step through the hook-up process. Click Start setup.Choose which language you want to <a href="http://www.ehow.com/how_4424109_hook-up-wireless-router.html#">continue</a> in from a drop down menu and click next.Go over the user license agreement and check the box that says, "I accept this agreement." When you are ready click next.Allow the program time to check your <a href="http://www.ehow.com/internet/">internet</a> connection. When it is done it will say, "Check successful." Click next and you will be ready to begin hooking up your new wireless router.Remove <a href="http://www.ehow.com/internet/">the internet</a> cable from your computer. It will be the only one that goes in to a phone jack. Then plug it in to the wireless router in to the yellow spot. Each spot is colored for your convenience, but it should also be the only spot that fits the plug so you can't get it wrong even if you try. When you have done that click next.Get the network cable you found in your box. The cable should be blue. Plug one end of the cable in to the blue spot of your wireless router and the other end in to your computer. It will only fit in one spot so don't worry. Click next when you are done this part.Plug the power adapter into the wireless router. It goes right next to the blue wire, and will only fit in that one spot. The other end should be plugged in to an outlet or power strip. Click next and wait for the system to check if the router is hooked-up properly. If it is hooked-up properly it will say, "Configuration Complete." Click next.Click next to close the setup wizard and begin using the new wireless router. This process should have only taken you a total of five minutes. If you have any problems contact the company listed in your instruction booklet.<br /></li> <li> <p><br /></li></ol>

How do I hook up both a laptop and a desktop to the internet?


Hello;
This is a quick setup for you, depending on the model of router you have. If this is a new router follow these steps

  1. Unplug the power to your Cable or DSL Modem
  2. Take the Ethernet Cable that goes from your modem and plug it in to the WAN or INTERNET port on the back of the router
  3. Plug your Desktop PC in to one of the remaining LAN outlets.
  4. Plug the power to your modem back in and wait 90 seconds
  5. Plug the power to your router in and wait another 90 seconds
  6. On your desktop computer open your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) and try one of these websites
  • http://192.168.1.1
  • http://192.168.100.1
  • http://192.168.2.1
  • http://192.168.0.1
  1. You will be prompted for a username and password. Depending on the make and model of router this can vary. This site can help you figure this out: http://www.routerpasswords.com
  2. Once you are in your router you are looking for a Wireless Option. On this tab you will need to set your Network Name or SSID. This will be the name you use to locate your wireless network later.
  3. Next, you will want to look for a wireless security tab. This allows you to setup your security. Options include WEP and WPA encryption. If Available, choose WPA2
  4. Next, it will ask you for a pass phrase or password to protect your wireless connection, this should be tough to guess.
  5. Save all the changes and go to your laptop
  6. On your laptop, beside the time in the bottom corner look for the icon with two monitors.
  7. Right click on the monitors and choose connect to a network
  8. Double click the network you named in step 2. You will be prompted for your password, enter the password you chose in step 4.
That should be it. If you continue to have difficulties please respond with the make and model of wireless router you have and I'll provide you with a more specific help.

Connectivity to email and internet increasingly fails.


next time it happens leave laptop on and plugged into router and unplug router only. If laptop now works problem is in the router you will probably have to reset router to default and use the router wizard to re-program!

Router not hooked up properly


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed.
then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HELP


Are you using a DSL modem? What is the brand of your modem? The setup CD is could be detecting your modem and not the Linksys router. I believe your modem is also a router that's why the setup says that you already have a router.

To fix that, do the following steps:

-Disconnect the router from the modem
-Connect your computer to port 1 on the router.

1. Open Internet Explorer and type http://192.1680.1.1 on the address bar
2. It will prompt you for username and password. By default, no username and password is admin. If the default password didn't work, try to type your own password for the router.
3. When you get to the setup page, Look for Local IP Address or Router IP Address. That is 192.168.1.1. Change that to 192.168.2.1
4. Click on Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
5. After saving, unplug the power to the router for 10 seconds then plug it back in.
6. Now connect the router back to the modem. Modem should be connected to the Internet port of the router and your PC to port 1.

That should do it.

To use two computers with hp psc 2110v printer


It would depend on whether the computers are in the same room or not, If they are in the same room then all you have to do is use a USB Switch. hook the printer to it then connect both computers to the switch, just change the computer thats used on the switch as and when needed. If you are wanting to use 2 computers over a network then its an entirely different solution.

Step One:
First make sure your machine is set up for File and Print Sharing. Secondly, check to see if the printer you wish to use is set up for sharing also. If not, follow these directions.
1. Right click the printer to be shared.
2. Select Sharing on the menu
3. Name the Printer to be shared.
4. Click OK. A hand should appear under your printer.
Step Two:
Open your Printer Folder. Start/Settings/Printers.
Select Add Printer.

Step Three:
An Add Printer Wizard dialog box will appear, click on Next at the bottom.

Step Four:
• The dialog box will ask how the printer is attached to your computer.
• Select Network printer by clicking in the radio button.
• Click on Next at the bottom of the box.

Step Five:
The box will ask you for the path to the printer. Select browse. Your network neighborhood will open.

Find the name of the computer to which the printer is hooked up. Click on the name of the computer. Then click on the the printer name to highlight it . Click OK and Next

Step Six:
You can name the printer on this dialog box. Usually, the printer brand and room number is sufficient. The box will ask you if you want to print from a DOS program. The default is No. Click on Next at the bottom of the box.

Step Seven:
If you have already installed the printer before, it will ask if you want to keep the same drivers. If your machine is having problems printing from this printer, which is why you are reinstalling, then select Replace existing driver. Otherwise, you can select Keep existing driver.

Step Eight:
The dialog box asks if you wish to print a test page. Select Yes, and Finish.

Step Nine:
Another box will come up and ask if the page successfully printed. If so, select yes.
You will see your new printer in your Printer Folder with a line underneath it indicating that this is a network printer.
