Make sure that you have the correct card for your wireless network. Ususally when you get network cards from people like at&t, you pay for it monthly, which you get the wireless signal from a satilitte. Since it ins;t working, you should return it or have them repair it until it works.

HI, HI, I HAVE A WRT54G CISCO ROUTER, AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF I HAVE TO INSTALL THE NETWORK MAGIC SOFTWARE TO CONNECT TO ROUTER ? , BECAUSE WITHOUT THIS SOFTWARE IS NOT POSSIBLE CONNECT MY NOTEBOOK...


You do not need to install Network Magic.
You need to configure your wireless router and then the wireless card in your notebook with the router's wireless settings.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Laptop will not allow router to connect because software does not support. need to sownload drivers to laptop but cant find out how


You'll need to locate the manufacturer of the wireless device in your notebook.

If it is built-in, go to the notebook manufacturer's web site and download the latest drivers for your particular notebook model's wireless card. If your wireless card is a PC card that you purchased separately and slipped into a slot on the notebook, you'll need to pop it out and determine than manufacturer's name andmodel for the card. Go to the manufacturer's web site to download drivers for the card.

Download drivers that are for the OS used on the computer (Mac, Windows XP, Windows 7, 32 bit or 64 bit)

I hope this was helpful!

Have wireless signal but no IP


Starting from the obvious, check that the cables are installed correctly.
You have to have a cable that brings the internet to your place.
Connect that cable into the router's jack labeled Connection to Modem.
Then get another network cable and plug it into any other jack form the back of your wireless router, and the other end into your laptop, just to make sure you are getting connected.
Once you are sure you can surf the net, unplug the wire from your laptop, and you should be able to surf wirelessly.

And if you still can't connect, let me know to perform additional steps.

I cant communicate with belkin wireless g router


It sounds like you don't have the units connected properly. Make sure you have a cable(wired) from your ethernet card on your pc connected to a wired port on the router. Then plug your router from its yellow port into the modem. Make sure your modem is connected to its Internet interface. Plug in your modem and wait 60 seconds for it to power up. Then power up the router.
At this point you should be able to access the router with the supplied installation CD. Run the setup assistant and it will define your wireless network. When you are through you should have internet access through the wired network. When you are finished you should be able to use the wireless network assuming you have the card installed correctly and the software for the card correctly installed.

Belkin wireless notebook card


If you have installed a wireless device driver, which is a very easy thing and im sure you would have done it perfectly.

when you search for networks or when the device is active it should be green/ blue. If the device is not working or ofline it shows orange / red. (if an indication is available)

The best way is to get into a WIFI range.

I have a laptop alway has green light for WIFI if im connected or not. but when I go on stand by it turns orange .

D link Router & my laptop


Debugging the issue -- this is not a solution.

Have you plugged a computer into the router if possible using an ethernet connection? Did it successfully access the internet?

If not the ISP (modem?) side of your router is probably configured incorrectly for your ISP

If that works wireless routers and adapters operate different bands I know of A, B, G and N. Do both your router and adapter card have at least one of those bands in common?

At any time have you attempted on the laptop to connect with the router? When connecting do you see your router by name? has your router been set to a unique name so you aren't confused seeing one of your neighbor's routers?

Did you enable encryption (WEP or WPA) in either the router or the wireless adapter and not enable it in the other?

Do you have MAC filtering on in you router and forgot to enter the wireless cards MAC accress?

Please reply with as many answers as you know and we can step through the process to attempt to complete the connection.

Also please provide the manufacturer and model for each of the following
Your router, your laptop and your network adapter

Please provide the operating system installed on your laptop,

If the wired connection to the internet does not work please provide the name of your internet service provider.

Second computer cannot connect to internet


Did your wireless network card install properly on the reformatted laptop? Can you see the network ID (SSID) in the list of available networks on the laptop? Perhaps you set up an encryption key that is saved into the old system that needs to be entered on the new.
