Your Wireless Router may have its name not broadcasting or hidden, check in the settings if it's hidden then manually connect your P.C.'s Laptops ,you won't find it using 'search for network'. Just right click on wireless icon near clock, select 'Open network and sharing center' and right click it. Now select 'Set up a new connection or network', Select 'Manually connect to a wireless network' and fill in the gaps. should work fingers crossed.
Please follow the steps in order to resolve the issue:
1.Open the router page (192.168.1.1)
2.Enter the username and password (by defualt password is admin and leave the username blank)
3.In the router setup page click Wireless and fill the sections and mentioned
Wireless Network Mode-Mixed
Wireless Network Name- As per your choice
Wireless SSID Broadcast-Enable and click Save settings.
4.Now click Wireless Security and select the Security mode as WEP
5.WEP Encryption should be 64 bits
6.In the Key1 enter a 10digit/10 letter password and click save settings.
7.Click Advanced Wireless Settings and fill the section as mention
RTS Fragmentation-2307 and click save settings.
8.Turn off the router for 30 seconds and then turn it on and try to connect your laptops.
wireless light will be ON only if you have connected any wireless devices to your network...
security light will be ON only if you enabled password to connect to your wireless network....
if you have changed any settings in the router recently,
then delete the saved list of networks in the computer....
then search for wireless networks in range and connect to your network....
Unsure what your problem is exactly but here is something to try. Power off all computers, modem and router. Power up the modem first, and wait until it is completely up before proceeding. Next power up the router and wait until it is completely up, the only light that probably wont be lit is the LAN light. Then power up each computer, they can all be powered on at the same time, that part really doesnt matter. See if that fixes the problem.
The Wireless Security of the router doesn't match your laptop's wireless settings. Make sure you configure the wireless security password correctly on the laptop. If you don't know your wireless password, try these steps:
-Connect your laptop hard wired to the router. -Open Internet Explorer and on the Address Bard type http://192.168.1.1 press enter. -It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there's no username and on the password type admin and hit OK. If admin didn't work, type your own password for the router. -When you get to the Setup page, click on Wireless Tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security. -Look for Security Mode. If Security Mode is WPA-Personal, the Passphrase is the wireless security key that you need to enter on the laptop's wireless settings. If the Security Mode is WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless security key. Connect to the wireless network and type it in. That should solve your wireless connection problem.
Who is your ISP? I belive what you have is a modem router. If the interney light is not lit then it only mean that the actiontec is bridged and you need to use a dialer on your pc to connect to your ISP. If the internet light is lit, no need for a dialer just connect it straight to your pc and check your internet.
if your wireless connection is not working even if the wireless light is lit up on ur 2wire modem/router....try to delete the 2wire network from the prefered list...go to network connection, right click on wireless netwrok connection, go to properties and click on wireless network..select the 2wire netwrok on the prefered list and remove..reconnect to the network by clicking on view available wireless netwrok and select the 2wire network again...if its asking for a WEP key or password take a look at the bottom on the modem a 10 digits number enclosed in brachets..thats the network or wep key. access 192.168.1.254 and click on home network, got to wireless settings---edit settings...change ur wireless channel to 10 adn power settings to 10, save ur changes=)...ohh and by the way make sure that the wifi switch of ur laptop is turned on=)
