Hi,

The issue you are facing is very common in nature. The issue can occure due to many reasons. Since the wireless access is related to frequency which again is sensitive to other devices which work on the similar technology like Microwave Owen, cordless phones etc.. All wireless devices which transmit signals have an option to change the frequency in which the signals are transmitted - hence all you need to do is access the setup page on your device (through a wired connection ofcourse ) and change to a different channel (generally the range is between 1 - 11) under the wireless section. Make a note of the name/ SSID you have provided to the device. Save the changes. Now unplug the cable between the computer and the device. On your computer search for the network and once found select and get connected. Now since its the first time. It might take some time for you to identify the right channel but since this task of finding the best channel is done only once. I guess its worth the effort

How do i connect my WG302 to my laptop using a console cable?


if Windows
go to dosprompt on p.c or start run cmd <press the enter key>
type in ipconfig <press the enter key>
was the ip address of the laptop 192.168.0.210 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 ?
note the ip address of the laptop and the subnet mask
If the ip address is not 192.168.0.210 then go into the network settings and set the laptop up with 192.168.0.210 and then make it a static ip address.
go to dosprompt on p.c or start run cmd <press the enter key>
type in ipconfig <press the enter key>
was the ip address of the laptop 192.168.0.210 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 ? (if not restart the laptop ) and check again
Next question how did you connect the wg302 directly to the laptop was it directly connected or was it through a network switch or network hub. Most likely the Cable router or DSL router has a DCHP server assigning different ip address lease range. You can either change the ip address of the access point device to one in the original current router lease range and assign it as static for the wireless access point device in the dchp lease table or assign the wireless access point with the second ip address as an example 10.0.0.2 and make sure the router dchp server allocates above 10.0.0.20 then temporarily connect router to laptop and temporily set laptop with 192.168.0.210 and then log into access point and change ip address to 10.0.0.2 for wireless access point device and turn off its dchp server. Then change laptop to use dhcp while connected into network hub or network switch with original router and restart laptop wired back into original normal network.

How to retrieve password from wireless access point router zyxel -570u


Initial Set-Up
Plug your wireless router into the cable connection in your wall. Plug the connection cord into the "WAN" port on the router. Plug the router's power source into the wall and turn the router on. Connect your wireless access point to your router by pushing one end of an Ethernet cord into the WAP. Push the other end of the Ethernet cord into the "LAN" port on the router. The WAP connects your wireless devices to your router.
Connect your laptop or computer to the WAP. Click the "Start" button on your computer and then click "Control Panel." Click "Network and Internet" and then select "Network and Sharing Center." The "Network and Sharing Center" window opens.
Click "Set up a wireless router or access point." Click the "Next" button.
Follow the prompts to create a wireless pass phrase or security key. Write the key down in a safe location to ensure access later, if required.

My laptop wont find my wireless adapter. i downloaded the driver and installed it but its still not working


First the wireless card driver needs to be installed in the laptop.
The router's SSID, passphrase (ie encryption) is configured in the router's wireless configuration. This information is needed to configure the wireless card in the laptop so it can connect to the wireless router.
Please click on this link for my instructions on how to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and the wireless card in the laptop ;-

Cannot get wireless connection to my laptop it works with the ethernet cable plugged in


You need to make sure you have the same settings on your wireless access point that you use on your laptop.

Make sure you spell your SSID (wireless network name) correctly. It is case sensitive.

Turn off security on your access point just to see if it works.
Configure your network card for Open access and turn off all other security settings.

Once you get it working turn on WEP encryption on your access point and create a wep key. Enter the same key on your Laptop.

Don't turn on stuff that you don't need or don't understand.

You just need to make it as simple as possible and then turn on adequate security.

OR

If the WEP stuff just gets too hard you can use MAC security.
That is where you say only known computers can access the wireless network. On your wireless access point configuration add the mac address of every devices network card that will connect. Sometimes these settings can be a little hard to find on the access point.

Hope this helps.

Start simple and then make it complex :)

Wireless router says its working laptop says no its not


Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.

Add wireless router to my wired router 4 port (2 free ports) for my 2 laptops


To add wireless to your wired router, you need an Wireless Access point. And when you get it you have to set the MAC address of the router into the Wireless Access point, in order for them to talk to each other. An Access point will probably cost you more than it would if you purchased a new wireless router. I would buy a wireless router, and sell the wired router on Craig's list or something.
