Hook up wireless interenet

Trying to hook up wireless internet connection and Comcast Tech tells me there is a problem with the IP# 169 which preceeds all the other IP #;s and needs to be removed. Suggest I contact manufacturer which I thought this site was. Have already paid the premium assistance fee and got no response.

Did you by any chance give you router the mac address on the wireless card? Do you have the comcast version of a netgear wireless router? Any wireless router will do also. Does not have to be netgear or from comcast. You can get online by the network cable right?. Where else are you trying to connect to wirelessly?

Let me know

You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Click on wireless settings change channel type to 3 or 6 or 11 and save so you get better signal.
Then save settings and restart router.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Connecting internet to the playstation 3


Before connecting the ethernet cable to the back of your Playstaion3 hold the modem reset button for 15 seconds, when 15 secs are up connect the ethernet cable to your ps3 system, wait until tour Comcast High Speed Internet goes online again (all the lights are showing fine) then try setting up your Playstation connection settings again, it might work since now you have reseted your modem and the modem will send information to new device, I hope this information works for you, :)

most likely the problem is that you need to set up your router to be on the same subnet of your modem.
please contact D-Link support- they have a great one at http://www.dlink.com/support/ or contact the ISP's support and they can help

I'm trying to hook up my modem through my router. My last router had an ip address of its own which I used to tell it to work through the router. Does the sb4220?


You may want to have the modem working with your system first and hook up your router after wards.
Disconnect your router and modem.
Reboot your system.
Run your hard wire direct to your SB4220 from computer net card.
Allow to load whatever drivers necessary.
On your computer type ipconfig /all This will show you all your information.
Try the internet and see if it works. If you know the ip of your carrier, Type ping ????? ie: Ping comcast.net
If you recv. a timeout you still have problems.
If you succeed, you are their.

If not, type ipconfig /renew This will reset your ip and configurations.
Now, hook up your router and you should be their.

Trying to install router for wireless


If that's hooked to comcast you can only have one computer hooked up to it, and no modems as they block mac address. If you are a Comcast customer there is a workaround. Turn on your wife's wireless if she hasit, if not get her a wireless card USB is easiest. Turn on sharing on that wireless card and you will be able to access the internet through your wifes computer, and not run afoul of your Comcast agreement. Or request an upgrade to a wireless router from Comcast but your rent goes from $3.00 per month to $10.00!

Cannot share my cable modem connection


You need to connect a router to the cable modem.  The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address.  By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet.  It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet.  You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.

Internet hookup


This is not the manufacturer's site, but i will try to help.
Is it your own network?
You need to make sure that the network is not protected, or you'll need the password.
Go to Start>Control Panel on your computer
Then go to Network Connections
There should be an icon for your wireless connection.
Right-click -> select Properties
In the selectbox select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)'
Click Properties
Check if 'Obtain an IP-address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS-server' are selected
If they were not, Press <Ok> two times and try to connect to the wireless network again.

Can you also tell what IP-address you get?
Find it by going to Start > Run
Type 'cmd' without the quotation marks and press <Ok>
you get a black command box
type 'ipconfig', again without the quotation marks and press <Enter>
Please tell me the IP-address it tells you...

Hi
I am try to take a stab at answering your query.

Internet Protocol (IP) Address preceeding with "169" means your PC is not receiving IP Address "generally" from your Boradband Modem or Internet Service Provider (ISP). The PC through Automatic Private Internet Protocol Addressing (APIPA) is assigning itself a temporal IP address.
This conditions means either
1. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client service is not running properly on your PC (Unlikely)
2. There is no connection between your PC and Broadband Device or ISP wired or wirelessly (very likely)
3. DHCP Server Service is not configured or not running on Boardband device (likely) or ISP (unlikely)
4. Some firewall software when improperly configured are known to block all ports and services. This can block TCP Ports 67 and 68 used by DHCP Client/Server communication (quite likely)
Some pointers for more info;
1. Your query suggest your issues are limited to Wireless connection. Can you access Internet through wired connection? If so;
a) What Wired connection is in use? USB or Ethernet?
b) Is wired connection through same Broadband device?
c) What IP is assigned to your PC in wired connection?
d) If wired connection works, is IP assignment static or by DHCP?
e) What Boardband device is in use? In which mode is the device set to? Router/Bridge
2. If you can't connect both wired and wireless, then it is unlikely your PC hardware is at fault. Call your Broadband Provider for further help and configuration. Try entily disabling your firwall software (if installed) and test conection.
3. If you can connect through wired connection and your IP Address does not proceed with "192.168" or "172.16" then your boadband device is likely in a bridge mode. In bridge mode, the DHCP Server Service on your boardband device is disabled. Most ISPs will only assign only one IP address to a user. If an IP address has been assigned to your PC on the wired connection, then the wireless connection will not receive an IP address and therefore your PC will assign itself an IP in the range "169.254"

Trying to hook up lap top to wireless internet. Comcast tech says there is problem with IP# 169 which preceeds other numbers and needs to be removed for hookup. How can I accomplish this? Model #3150H


Usually you will have an IP address starting with 169 if the adapter cannot get an ip address from anywhere, it is an autmoatic IP address.

What operating system (Windows XP or 2000 or Vista) are you using?
