    I have checked my desktop, going through help and it shows wireless Belkin, but my laptop says there is no wireless connection available when I try to use it as a wireless device. I have tried any "help" I've found available. Any suggestions?

The first thing to do for router issues is to reset the router,
press and hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds on back .
this sets it back to defaults ,
now log into the router using a wired connection and check to see if the wireless is enabled and open.
after you get everything to connect , name the router and put in a wep code and do the same to the laptop connect using the name and wep code.

SOURCE: We have a desktop hooked up to the router and use

I can be that the signal is too weak or the laptop's wireless capabilities is the problem.

Cannot connect to internet today. Yesterday all was well.


If the modem works and a desktop pc works through the Ethernet port of the router, then try plugging the pc laptop into the same Ethernet port using the same cable as the desktop. Most laptops have an Ethernet port.

If this works, then the problem is the wireless access?

Check you still have the wireless set-up on the pc laptop, if not re-install it.

Cannot connect to Wireless with my Linksys WRT120N Router.


If you have 2 devices not be able to connect to it suddenly, then it is probably the router that changed, as opposed to it being the 2 devices changing at the same time. Sometimes wireless routers just go bad like that.Try a factory reset, and then set the appropriate settings back to where you need them. If that doesn't help, you likely need a new one.

I've configured my desktop Brother HL2040 to share but I can't print from my laptop.


Make sure you've got the firewall set to allow printing on the computer working as a print server.

Another simple solution is to pick up an ethernet or wireless print server unit. It's going to cost more, but it's typically very reliable, and doesn't depend on another computer for printing.

if was working at another house, your settings are most likely correct. try checking the distance of your computer to the router. you may move the antenna or try changing the channel on your router.
