You do not need the disk, if you want it on one device that is fine. log into the routers IP address and under wireless security there will be a key. If there is no key make one now. Make the security type WPA or WPA2. On the laptop, click on the wifi signals in the lower right hand corner next to the clock. Select your network and check to always connect to that network. Type the same key that was in the routers wifi security box.
In this case, the key you would type in the laptop would be what475ever. I don't even know why they shipped a CD with the things. All it does is confuse people.
Did you press a button (or move a slider-switch) on the WIN7 laptop, to "disable" the wireless adapter?
Can you login to the web-server "inside" the wireless router, and look at the "log-files" that the router keeps of "recent" events (such as connection-attempts from wireless devices), to see if there is any useful information in those logs?
Does the WIN7 laptop connect to _any_ wireless network (Starbucks, university, shopping mall), or does it fail ONLY when connecting to your wireless router?
Have you tried a "factory-reset" on your router, just in case that it might be the problem?
go to your adapter settings for the notebook that does not work and clear off your network connection try to re-discover your router, and enter the same code you used to log in with the notebook that works. Sounds like you have an IP from the router, but no access.
Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.
FIRST CHECK TO SEE IF THERE IS A WIRLESS APDAPTER INSTALLED IN THE COMPUTER. IF SO, THEN FOLLOW THESE STEPS.
RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, ON REBOOT, CLICK F10 WHEN YOUR CHANGE BOOT OPTIONS SCREEN COMES UP. YOU MUST PRESS F10 QUICKLY OR IT WILL LOAD WINDOWS AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN. ONCE YOU GET INTO THE BIOS SETUP UTILITY GO TO SYSTEM CONFIGURATION, SCROLL DOWN TO BOOT OPTIONS CLICK ENTER. GO DOWN TO INTERNAL NETWORK ADAPTER BOOT AND ENABLE IT. GO TO EXIT AND SAVE..
My problem is not being able to work wirelessly with my laptop. My answers to your questions are underlined(I've used your questions to someone elses problem)
One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled- the light on the router is lite on the symbol for wireless
or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with - there is a switch on the front of this machine which is switched to wireless.
There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.
(01) Which of the following is your router? -->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)
(03) Are ANY of the computers connected to your Belkin router able to access the Internet? YES
(04) If there are other computers connected to the router that are able to access the Internet, how are they connected? (in each case, please) only this machine is connected but it is by.... (b) wired (using an Ethernet patch cable connected between the router and the computer)
(05) What is the manufacturer and model number of the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
HP Pavilion dv2500
(06) What operating system is installed on the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
This machine is operating on Vista but the internet access I have is with talktalk
(07) Have you ever successfully connected (wirelessly) to the Internet from the computer you are attempting to wirelessly access the Internet through your Belkin router on? NO
I hope you don't mind me using your questions to someone else, I thought you might be able to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am connected to the internet but don't seem to be able to work wirelessly. Lorraine
Are you attempting to access your own wireless router? Do you know how to access your wireless router configuration? Does your wireless router support wired connections? If so, does your computer work on the on the wired connection? What is the manufacturer and model of the wireless router, laptop computer and if a separate accessory the wireless network card?
