In Windows XP -
Start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Right Click your Wireless Connection -> Properties -> Right click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) -> Automatically Obtain an IP Address, Automatically Obtain DNS Server Automatically.

That should help you to avoid IP Address conflicts.
If your IP address conflicts still is a problem, we may have to set up DHCP on your Router as well. If so, let me know what kind of router you have and I can (or someone can) help you through it.

Thanks for your time!

Change Router Settings - IP Address not working


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

May laptop won't connect to internet, my laptop is in good condition. i already reset my dlink wireless router but still don't connect to internet. The connectivity is ok. my laptop detects the router but...


Hi,

Is the laptop detecting any wireless networks in the area? if yes then it means that the wireless card is ok if not make sure that the wireless is turned on on your laptop.

I the laptop detects wireless networks in the are then we should check the settings on your system or something that could be interfering with the wireless connection on your system,
what are the error/s when trying to connect wirelessly?

Tis can be multiple things regarding wireless, if the error is windows was unable to conenct to wireless evice then try recreating the wireless network on your laptop in network and sharing center if you have win7 on the laptop, network conenctions if you have XP.

I the laptop connects to the router but does not get internet acces then better check you routers network key if it is correct in your laptops settings, also check your IP address if it is correct if you IP starts with 169... then have a bad IP address on your laptop, go to the command prompt type ipconfig /release, then press enter, then type ipconfig /renew then enter to renew your ip address, hoping that the IP address changes it should begin with 192...

My laptop keeps acquiring network address. Please suggest what to do ? Router --> Modem --> Desktop. Laptop is for wireless connection


For that you need to enable DHCP on router.Then your computer get ip address automatic from router.Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on DHCP enable it save settings and restart router. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Desk top/ethernet to linksys router not recognizing.


First connect that desktop to linksys with ethernet cable.
then set ip property to network adapter .
Set ip address ,subnet mask and gateway ip to ip property.
Set ip address as the ip of network like if router ip is 192.168.1.1 so set ip like 192.168.1.15
set subnet mask as same as your other computer.
Set default gatway ip as your router ip.
Then you can connect internet.

4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

I am trying to configure my netgear router to work with my dsl motorola modem


You can access your wireless router by first running you ethernet cable from pc to wireless, then in address bar, type 192.168.1.1 and this will enter the wireless router's software. If it asks for username and password, try typing admin for both.

Changed from AT&T to a cable company for DSL. Trying to set up


You need to "fool" your cable box into thinking that the wireless router is the computer. This just means that the modem is locking into the first ip address it can get... it tends to block out all others. Here's how to remedy and allow everything to get access...

1 Shut off computers, routers, everything.
2. Turn on your wireless router FIRST... leave everything else off until you see it's completely booted.
3. Then with the cable connected to the modem/cable box and the router, turn on the cable box/modem and let it cycle up. This should allow the cable modem to "find" the wifi ip address as the main ip.
After that, turn on any other routers, and the computers...
This should allow you access to the net by any of your computers because the wifi router should give all the other comptuers and routers on the system inddividual ip addresses and all should be well...
Give it a try and let me know!

Acquiring Address Problem


you will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!


it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
