What is error code 651?


I have fixed mind through following steps, OS Windows 7. This works if you can still use cable internet, so that system can download the driver.

In my case there was no wifi utility, no connections detecting, no bars IIII.

Solution:

Please note it is mostly to do with your network drivers, if you go to device manager under the network adapters, you will see network controller marked in yellow. Dont worry.

To make your wifi connection work please complete the following steps:

Goto:

Device manager > trouble shooting ( column 3 , second last row )

Now under " Hardware and Sounds" heading go to configure a device.

It will start trouble shooting automatically, and try to download and install the right network control driver.

My system is using: Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller and after downloading the driver. I have now following installed.

Realtek RTL8191 SE802.11 b/g/n Wifi Adapter ( this was missing )

Now when I go back to device manager I have both are functioning and after reboot I automatically connect to the wifi. So everything is fine.

So my advice to all whatever make is your PC / OS , do go to device manager and try trouble shooting.

For those who have found this solution helpful, please email me: manny.nlAThotmail.com

Goodluck!

Router set up.
Router is not working.
NO CD.
How to set up router.

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Belkin N+ wireless router giong out periodically. Could 2.4 ghtz phone be the problem?


There might be a possibility have you tried manually changing the wireless channelto 9,11,or 1. by default cordless phone has channel 6. It might help if you put the base of the router or the phone away from each other.

Trouble setting up router


Make sure it is not a cross-over cable, and unplug the Ethernet cord at both ends and then re-connect. Also try a different cord. If you are doing this wireless I would recommend you using an Ethernet cord. You could also push in the little reset button on the back of the router for 45 seconds and then unplug the router then plug it back in and start over with the CD.

Router not hooked up properly


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed.
then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hi Like,

Unplug the router, Don't hook it to anything but you PC you are have the CD in. Use the cable that came with the unit, plug it into your pc ethernet port and one of the 4 ports marked LAN. Make sure not use the port marked WAN. Make sure you use the ethernet cable, not the USB. Power up the router, and put the easystart cd in. Once it autostarts, press the Easy Setup button on the router for about 8-10 sec. The Easy Setup on your screen should respond. From there out, follow the prompts.
For the manual, follow this link.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx

The quick start should solve your setup connection issues, if you have any. Also, make sure you have your firewalls disabled. And re-enable them what you are done, to be safe!

Good Luck!
