    I have an Ativa Wireless G Router AWGR54.

    I'm a total novice in this area, but hopefully I can sufficiently answer your question. The router is hooked up to the PC where the DSL modem would be plugged in. The DSL modem is plugged into the back of the router. It doesn't appear that this router can be turned off. I currently have the router unhooked, so we can do what we need on the PC.

    Thanks for the help! After calling Ativa customer support for the 3rd time in 2 days, I finally was able to resolve this issue with a firmware update.

    can you describe the layout of your network?  What is your wireless router being hooked TO, and how do you connect to the internet when the wireless router is not turned on?

When you say that everything works when the router is NOT hooked up to the PC, does that mean that you have the DSL modem connected directly to the computer?

then, when you hook up the router, you're connecting it BETWEEN the DSL modem and your computer?

You probably need to log in to your router and set it up to connect through the DSL modem to the internet: it may not do it automatically.

is this computer running windows XP?

if so, go to control panel, then network connections.

if you double click on the local area connection, and go to the support tab, it should list something like this:

Address type: assigned by DHCP
IP address: 10.0.1.100
Default gateway: 10.0.1.1

Try opening internet explorer, and typing in the numbers it lists for default gateway.  hopefully, that will bring up the configuration screen for your router.

depending on your location - check with others to see who they use, then either call them or go online to check availability, pricing and sometimes you can even order online! I have AT&T Uverse and if you go to ATT dot com- then go to SHOP tab, you can see availability by your address and order internet - TV- and even phone service. It will also show different pricing according to the speed of internet. You want faster if you watch videos and movies online. You also may have a Cable company in your area, where I live it is Cox Cable and Time Warner Cable companies. So you may have to search online or ask neighbors who they use and go from there and find their website to call them or order online. At&t I ordered, then got the Wireless Wifi router box so can hook up main computer and use your laptop or other devices with it wirelessly. so keep that in mind when ordering also - my neighbor doesn't have any laptop or any other stuff so he was happy to get a Wired router, with No wireless wifi connection

Watch YouTube videos with PSP - Online.


Getting online with your PSP is very simple. First, you must be in range of a Wifi hotspot (wireless local area network). You can adjust network setting to connect to an access point such as a Wi-Fi hotspot or the router on a wireless home network and save the network connections data on your PSP®. Up to 10 connections can be saved.

Hotspots can be found in airports, hotels, restaurants, and at home if you have a wireless network. Once in range of the hotspot, go to "Settings" menu, >> "Network" Settings and press "X" Button. Select "Infrastructure Mode" or "Ad Hoc Mode" and press X Button. Set up the "New Connection". For details about Infrastructure Mode set up, or Ad Hoc Mode set up, visit us.playstation.com.

Search for networks in range. You will usually need a signal of at least 40% to connect - the higher the percent, the connection will be faster. If the connection is successful, information about the network connection will appear.

Once your PSP® is online, you can: Play multiplayer online games with Infrastructure mode, Download individual files, Download a PSP® Content Pack, Surf the World Wide Web, Check out the Official PSP® Website http://www.psp.playstation.com, Enjoy RSS video or audio web feeds, weblogs or podcasts from any of thousands of websites, and Update the PSP® system software.

Hi. Just follow these instructions step by step and you should watch and listen everything with flash:

  1. If you previously had Flash Player 6 for Pocket PC installed, do the following:
    1. Uninstall Flash Player 6 for Pocket PC.
    2. Remove the Flash Player 6 for Pocket PC installer from ActiveSync.
    3. Restart your device.
  2. Copy the Flash Player 7 for Pocket PC CAB file to your Pocket PC.

Also, here is the download link for the newest Flash Player for PPC: (http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flash/devices/pocket_pc/installers/fp7_ppc_en.cab).
To be sure, try to use Internet Explorer mobile (should be installed when the device is bought), or Opera Mobile (Can be downloaded here: http://www.opera.com/mobile/). Hope this helps.

Trouble playin videos on PC after installing wireless router


Streaming with wireless is not a good idea. It will be slower and more prone to dropping.

I have an issue with my Dlink DIR-625 wireless and cable modem


it isn't syncing up with your modem, try a hard reboot, disconect everything, even the cable, after 5 minutes , first screw the coax cable back to the modem, that will re establish the cable connection, plug everything back in, and if that pc light still is still doesn't work, the router may be bad, look on the Dlink site and download the latest firmware, as a last resort, but also reset the router first before trying anything, there is a reset button on the router. Sometimes certain routers don't work with certain modems, if you try the reset, then the hard reboot, and the firmware, you have covered all the bases

I have the belkin wireless adapter model # F5d7050 and the belkin wireless router and the adapter is always losing it's connection like every 30min when I'm just on the internet and every like 9mins when...


i had the same exact problem. not only is the adapter itself garbage, but the software and driver is garbage. i had to completely remove all traces of the driver/software from my computer, restart, hook up the ethernet cable and go to the belkin site to download the updated driver/software for my version of the adapter(very important to get the correct ones). i downloaded them and ran that set up. DO NOT use the software on the disc!!! it has the wrong driver file and will conflict with the right one you download. after i did all this, the adapter worked, but kept a weak signal. and you need to make sure you have the right network key that is set up on your router config. any questions - fgb_73@yahoo.com
