Wireless Network Detecting Problem

Hi friends, I have a strange problem. I'm using Windows Vista pc with D-Link router via cable modem. I have Toshiba laptop that was working wirelessly with this system. I went abroad and came back but now my laptop detects all the networks in range except mine. Though on the same router other laptops work perfectly alright. I don't know what's wrong but my laptop is not detecting my network but all other networks in range. Plzzzzz help. cheers

Wireless connections have a lot in common so here is a link that will give you the general configurations for a wireless Router to PC. Keep in mind that you will need to configure both the computer and the router in two separate steps. That is why it is best to use the setup disk that normally comes with a new piece of equipment and the cables.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

Also keep in mind that the equipment should be matched or designed to work with the other equipment. You will have some kind of a modem either a cable modem or internal modem or external modem that the router will have to connect to.

It is best to allow your own Internet Service Provider to set up the connections. They may not be able to support the configuration if you do not purchase it from them and then you will need to do-it-yourself.

Here are the links for configuring the computer with the different operating systems

Win XP http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/wlan_client_configure.mspx?mfr=true
Win Vista
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Setting-up-a-wireless-network
Win7

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Hi Friend,

Please refer to the link
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WCG200

You cannot upgrade the firmware, instead you can download the vista drivers for your cable gateway modem.

Pleasssssssssse help : on router G624T


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

You said you can get connection coming from modem directly? Or did you mean the modem is going into the wan port of the router?
Did you try all the ports on the router?
Did you check the cable?
Did you try turning off the wireless on your the pc and connecting via e-net cable?
Make sure it is not the pc or cable.
Also, check and make sure a firewall is not waiting for you to add it to the trusted sites list.
Are you getting an IP when you plug in the cable and are the lights lit up on the router and nic?
I would make sure you got a connection to those ports via another computer before moving on, and try using all the ports with a different cable if possible.

New Vista laptop and problems setting up wireless


Hi,

Chances are the wireless portion of the trendnet software is not compatible with vista. I would uninstall the trendnet software or let windows control the wireless portion of it.

Check to see if you are using any encryption ie. wep or wpa or wpa-tsk. If you are then you will need to enter the network key in windows.

good luck

Internet connection


Ok I have done it a little different sometimes... try this approach... First connect up the DSL Modem to the PC via Ethernet.. Configure the modem from the PC using the Connect to the Internet Wizard... enter all ya ISP details Logon, Password etc. Once this is going OK.. Disconnect the Modem... and then connect it up to the "Router" using the "Uplink" port and when connect ya Modem to the router... then connect another Ethernet cable from Router to same port on ya PC. Then simply use the network setup Wizard to set up an Internet Connection and connect up via ya router thru ya modem... generally works for me....
