Well if your router is wireless it should be straight forwards,make sure the router wireless function is turned on in the router, the software that came with your usb wireless product will have a function to find all wireless broadcasts in your immediate area, select your one ,make sure,that if you have used a security key(such as WEP), that you use it also in the software of the usb product.

good luck

How do I connect my Macbook to my Kodak wireless printer with my Belkin G+MIMO router?


When you added the WPS encryption ket to your wireless router, this secures your wireless network from unauthorized access to you wireless network.
To allow your wireless computers and wireless printer to communicate with your wireless network the wireless cards in the computers and printer needs to be configured with the WPA encryption settings that you configured in the wireless router.

I am trying to connect my Dlink DKT-401 router to my Linksys cable gateway router. I am not getting internet access when connecting to the Dlink network


I DON'T THINK YOU CAN RUN 2 ROUTERS ON THE SAME NETWORK UNLESS ONE IS USED AS AN ACCESS POINT.
1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode. Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; these must be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for details on its client mode configuration support.

2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP address setting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a two router environment. Check the second router's IP address value and reset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of the first router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).

3. Disable DHCP - To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the home network, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.

Instead of adding a second wired router to an existing network, consider adding a network switch instead. A switch accomplishes the same goal of extending the size of a network, but it does not require any IP address or DHCP configuration, greatly simplifying configuration.

I have a dynex enhanced wireless g network adapter. The computer that uses it is a windows xp. The computer will recognize it and it will show up but I can't connect it to any wireless networks. There is a...


Hello,


Does the stick see any other wireless networks? Can you try creating an Ad-Hoc network from your other laptop to this one through the USB stick? If the answer to either of these two questions then the stick is working fine.

I would check to make sure your router is not using solely a N network type because the USB stick will not support it.

If you are using a duel band router and you are currently using the 5ghz network then the USB stick will not detect this either.

Lastly if your network is not being broadcast, your laptop may connect to the network but your USB stick will not be able to locate the network.

You can also try power cycling the router (unplug for 30 seconds) and then search for networks again.

Thanks,

Pat

Need download for other computer to be added on


To add a second computer, take an Ethernet cable, and connect it to one of the LAN ports on the router, and to the network-port on the second computer;
there's no need for any "download" to make this work.

If the second computer has a wireless adapter, then click 'View Available Wireless Networks', and click to connect to the network.

Can i connect my f4180 printer to a router and access it wirelessly


Your printer uses a USB interface and can be connected to a wireless network using a print server simular to the Linksys WPSM54G.

I have also found on the web several wireless routers that incorporate a USB print server function, that is they have a USB port that connects to your printer and allows it to be shared on the network.

Be careful not all routers with USB ports are for printers, these newer routers have USB ports for adding network shared disk storeage boxes and do not support printers.

They all incorporate a user friendly WEB based configuration program to help you do this so don't think you need a degree in computer science.

Remote pc cannot access wireless


You can do a reset on your router. All computers must be must be getting its connection from your router. Your wired computer must be getting an ip address from the router(example is 192.168.1.x). You can then access the router page using your browser by typing the default gateway(example 192.168.x.1). This will take you to the router configuration page. You can set up the wireless network and your wireless network can now support more than 2 wireless computers.

Home wireless network


Most wireless1.gif networks are setup as infrastructure networks, meaning all communication is to/from a wireless access1.gif point/router that serves the same function as a switch/hub in a wired network as a central point to transfer communications from machine to machine. One works over the air the other through a wire.

There is an alternate form of wireless networking1.gif refered to as ad hoc -- in this version of wireless networking every wireless adapter1.gif can "talk" to any other wireless adapter configured with the same SSID (name) and security encryption (none, WEP, WPA). This is how somewhat less impromptu wireless networks are created similar to impromptu infrared networks some of us have used. One limitation of the ad hoc networks I have seen configured to date is access to the internet. I have posted an article where a stationary PC (required to be running for any other wireless machine to access the internet) with a wireless card in ad hoc mode could act as the router for wireless network but it required a cabled connection the internet. I suppose it could be a second wireless connection on a separate channel with a second wireless adapter in an infrastructure network but why? These types of networks are only recommended in another article for a limited (small) number of machines.

Based on this are you asking to create an ad hoc network to connect 2 PC's1.gif wirelessly without a wireless router1.gif or access to the internet from the wireless network (without a dedicated machine)?
