On your pc, go to 'Start' 'Run' type 'cmd'. This will open the command prompt.

Type 'ipconfig /all' then hit enter key

write down the 'Gateway' ip address.

Open up your browser and type or whatever the ip address of your gateway is.

You will need the default username and password to gain access to the router configuration web utility (If you have the manual for the router it will be listed in there), or the username and password you set when you first setup the router.

The default is usually 'admin' for both

In the 'wireless' settings menu make sure the network mode is disabled and the SSID Broadcast is also disabled. That should do it.

Finally, drop a bill off to your neighbors for half of your internet service bill since the time you bought your router.

Thank you for using FixYa
In order to use the laptop in another room, your router must be a wireless router. If it is a wireless router you will need to Create a new wireless connection on your laptop in order to connect to it. Go into your control panel or system and use the Wizard to create a new connection. Since I do not know what operating system or hardware you are using this is not a specific answer but I am giving you the general procedure that you will have to follow.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

I got your issue, you must make sure the firmware is upto date in your router since in the surf wireless router we have the issue only because of firmware.

Click here to download the firmware.

Update it in the router using a wired computer, if you do it in a wireless comp, connection will be disconnected.

I'm sure this will work.

Good Luck!

Thanks in Advance!

Belkin 54 Wireless Internet Connection Problems


If wireless adapter on the laptop is fairly old, you may need to update the drivers for the wireless adapter. Some older wireless adapters are not capable of properly communicating with WPA devices. Typically a driver update of the laptop resolves the issue. If not, try another wifi adapter and verify it is not the OS or laptop itself.

Good Luck.

Wireless can not communicate with my comp

I'm assuming you are using windows XP or similar. You can check your tcp/ip protocols and local pc adaptor by 'pinging'. open the command prompt - 'start', 'all programs', 'accessories', 'command prompt'. Then type 'ping' without quotes. If there is 'no loss' of data, your pc is basically sound, as are the protocols.

Try reaching your router by typing (or look on bottom of router or documentation for IP address). It may ask for user name and password which should be with documentation. You need to be able to reach your router before you can use the net.

If using a cable, check out your LAN by going to 'control panel', 'network connections', then find the LAN icon. Right click and left click on 'properties'. under the 'general' tab scroll to ' internet protocol tcp/ip'. double click on this. under the general tab make sure ip address and dns is obtained automatically.

If you're using the wireless capability (ie not network cable) right click on the wireless connection to 'view available networks'. try to connect to one. You may need a WEP/WPA etc password. You could try connecting a network cable from pc to router to see if it's a wireless problem or not.

In control panel look at 'internet options' and 'connections' tab. make sure it's set to use the right connection (eg mine just uses the LAN).

sorry if this is a bit muddled but there are many possibilities. Any more info on your setup would be helpful.

Signal strength very low. Belkin ADSL2 modem with wireless g router F 507632-4

signal is bouncing off doors and walls to get to your comp
move comp closer to modem if it increases and your signal strength increases then you know youll have to be close to modem

other problem someone taped your signal and it working off of it call your provider to come out test the wireless signal strength and or password your wireless router settings so some one cant interfere with signal

i dont like wireless myself in the home i go straight cable with ether net cord this always has strenght and cannot be tapped
