First make sure you have the blue cable connected from your modem to the wan port on your router. This is the port closest to the power connection. Make sure all of your computers tcp/ip settings are set to obtain ip address automatically. If this still doesn't work unplug your modem and router at the same time for about 60 seconds. Plug in your modem and after all lights come on except the activity light, plug in your router. You should have have the power light, wan light and however many pcs are connected and on lit up. This should solve your problem. If not, add a comment and I'll be glad to come back and help.

    Also, depending on your router there may be an icon on your taskbar for it. If there is right click on it and ckick on available wirelee networks. Make suke sure that you are connected to tour router. If not, click on it and click on connect. Sometimes wireless will connect to a close by network or a nic card in another pc.

Cant connect belkin 54g router to internet


If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Laptop


the internet cable should be connected to the "Internet" or "WAN" port on the router. Your PC should be connected to one of the regular ports on the back of the router and your laptop can be connected just like the pc, or it can connect wirelessly.

Then you should be able to see the internet from your laptop.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
