Who do you have for a internet provider? You may have to call your internet provider & give them your MAC address on your router so it will be reconized on their end. A router let's you connect more than 1 computer to the internet. You installed the software? What light don't come on?

Wireless router connection


IF the ROUTER has wireless "enabled", and your device/computer has wireless (and the wireless is ON) then you should see the router's name when you search for "wireless connections" click on the name and enter the password for the router connection and should be able to connect, IF you can't see the router's name then unplug the router and wait 20 seconds to 1 minute, then plug the router back-in wait for the wireless "light" to come back on, and try again. Hope this helps...

Do I need a wireless router to connect to the internet on a Toshiba L645D-S4056


Not strictly speaking.
You can use a wire instead if you have a port (hole) for ethernet plug (slightly larger than a phone port).
In coffee shops you'll be using wireless, but they provide the router.

How do I connect my linksys wireless router?


Here are the steps :

1.Attach the antennas to the Linksys wireless router.

2.Place the router in a central location, making sure it's not surrounded by metal. (A signal can't be obtained through metal.) The router should be located so that the distance between clients (computers) is somewhat equal. This will create a better connection.

3.Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the back of the Linksys router.

4.Connect a computer to the router by plugging another Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer and attaching the other end to one of the available ports on the back of the router. You can choose any port except the one labeled "WAN."

5.Plug the router into an electrical outlet.

6.Wait for the power light to stop flashing, at which time the router is finished booting up. While the router is booting, the power light will be blinking. This process may take a few minutes to complete.

7.Reboot your computer so it can access a new IP address from the router through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

Configure the Router procedure.

1.Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."

2.Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.

3.Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."

4.Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.

5.Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.

6.Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

Most computers connect to a WiFi network automatically.
Please make sure the wireless in your computer is turned on. There should be a button with an indicator light near your keyboard, just switch it on.

Alternatively open your start menu and find "network" or "internet connections". There should be an option for wireless that you can select. Wireless connections will be scanned and you will need to select from a list of options to connect to. Once you click it you will be connected to your home WiFi Network.

If your network has a password your will need to enter the Network Name (Called SSID) and the Password in the Wireless Connection Wizard.

This will resolve the issue you are facing.
I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

When you try to connect via wireless, does it ask for your wep key? Also try and running wireless network connection utility in setting up wireless networks, I'm sure you have already done this, but, it doesn't hurt to try it again and see if there is anything you may have overlooked.

I will be on line when all of a sudden it says internet explorer has stop working.It happens over and over. please help thank you ssuzannasuzie@verizon.net


well suzie, there are a lot of areas you want to check on about that issue. try to check the following:

check your modem, check if the ONLINE light is lit. if not as a remedy unplug the power from the unit, wait for about 30 seconds to a minute then plug it back in.

check if other computers can go online from the modem, if they can you may want to restart your computer to refresh the connection

if you have a wireless connection at home:

make sure that you are within range of the wireless router

make sure that your wireless computer is connected to the right network.

as a remedy, just restart the wireless router and your computer.
