Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Cannon 560 printer is not connecting to the router.

I just bought my printer and set the wireless according to instructions. It sees the network and the password is correct, but its generating an 169 ip address, which I was told happens when the router isn't recognizing the device. I am having the same issue with my Itouch. It works everywhere but at home, generating 169 ip. HELP. My desktop and laptop are connecting just fine.

How do I connect my Macbook to my Kodak wireless printer with my Belkin G+MIMO router?


When you added the WPS encryption ket to your wireless router, this secures your wireless network from unauthorized access to you wireless network.
To allow your wireless computers and wireless printer to communicate with your wireless network the wireless cards in the computers and printer needs to be configured with the WPA encryption settings that you configured in the wireless router.

I just bought a linksys wrt120n wireless router. Is there a way to use the wireless router to print on my new laptop?


This model printer does not have a network connection therefore to print via wireless from the laptop, the printer needs to be connected to a computer and setup as a shared printer. This computer must be connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable.
Please click on this link and follow my instruction to configure a shared network printer :-

Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.

5449-005.png

NOTE:
If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.

5449-007.png



NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

The printer is usually discovered by the computer, not the other way round.
Use Windows explorer, networks to discover it.
1. Make sure file and printer sharing for networks is enabled on networking part of the control panel for Windows.
2. Make sure the appropriate protocol has been set up ie TCIP and that the printer has an IP address in the range recognised by the router.
3. Make sure the printer is in the same workgroup under windows.

Cant get online with router conected


you will need to check the settings of the router. If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work ? If that works then your modem is working properly. Now connect the modem and the computer to the router. open the set up page of the router. Change the settings of the router manually according to the Internet service provider.
Once you have all the proper settings you will be able to go online using the router. Now change the wireless settings of the router. set up your wireless network. on your computer connect to the wireless network.

Epson sx510w prints using a cable but can't get it to print wireless


The specs for your model Epson allows you to connect the you network by wireless and by LAN cable.

The specs are as follows :-
Wi-Fi Wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g – compatible with 802.11n*
*Transmission rate will be limited to 802.11g and will operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band
Ethernet Wired LAN IEEE 802.3 (100BASE-TX, 10BASE-T)
Other PictBridge
Wireless security
WEP – 64bit
WEP – 128bit
WPA – PSK (TKIP) – compliant with WPA2
WPA – PSK (AES) – compliant with WPA2

To connect the printer by a LAN cable you need to configure the Epson for an IP address that suits your network configuration and connect the LAN cable to your wireless router/hub.

The reason why you cannot print using wireless is because the wireless configuration in the Epson is not setup with the router's wireless configuration ie. SSID WPA encryption etc.

For instructions of setting up a LAN network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3668797-setting_up_shared_network_printer

For instructions on setting up a wireless printer, the Epson wireless settings need to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Go into your router's wireless and note the SSID, and encryption settings etc and configure the Epson's wireless settings with the router's wireless settings. This will allow the Epson to connect to the wireless router. Please click on this link for instructions to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router (if you have not already do so) and configure the wireless card in the computers and wireless printer (the instructions for configuring the wireless card in the printer is the same as for the wireless card in the computers via the printer's menu screen).

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
