Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

We have just changed ISP from Demon to BTHomeHUB including a change from the previous modem/router (an SMC wireless ADSL Barricade g) to a British Telecom (BT) wireless modem/router. Maybe it's not relevant but the latter is connected via ethernet to a Del PC and we are able to run our 3 Mac laptops, via WiFi, very efficiently with this set up. Having earlier downloaded the relevant drivers to our Macs (but not to the PC which would not allow the download for some reason) our Lexmark Z1480 wireless printer was working fine with the previous WiFi set up with the Macs (which is all that we require) but the printer is now apparently not communicating with the new BT modem/router (orange flashing WiFi icon on the printer which needs to be continuous green. The Del PC will still not allow the Lexmark download but anyway this was not necessary to have our Macs printing wirelessly on the earlier set up. With thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer Delwin Clifford

If the light is flashing orange Printer is trying to connect wirelessly"

  • The INA has been configured for infrastructure, but is not linked to an access point,
    or
  • there is a security setting mismatch between access point and router.
Mkae sure your new router supports WiFi 802.11b/g ranges

You need to use the setup cd and connect the lexmark into the pc to reconfigure the wireless again since it changed.

    The printer still has the details of the old wireless station and they need to be changed to the new one.

    with HP printers this is done with the setup cd. Its a part of the installation so you might need to uninstall the software from the pc and then reinstall the software to get it to configure the printer again with the new details.

    Il look for instructions

I have a belkin vision N1 modem router connected to the Internet by ADSL and I wish to connect to it a SMC Barricade N with a 20Meter cat 6 cable to improve wireless reception on the other side of the...


Can you clarify the problem?

Consdier first that both devices are NAT firewalls and your ISP probably only allows one address. So you would need to put one behind the other. This may not work like you plan. PCs behind the second will not be seen on the LAN by PCs on the first.

The N1 is a very good router. Consider relocting it to a more central location.

Another trick is to locate it near a central wall if it is block. By adding 1 remote antenna and drilling through that wall witha short antenna cable you can get much better coverage on the other side.

It could also be an ethernet problm 1. Power down SMC, plug WAN of SMC to LAN of router and power up SMC. If both devices show link lights and activity the hardware is OK. If not you need a "crossover" cable.

Hope that helps.

No connection, cant install the software


You said that when you connect the computer to the modem, you get limited or no connectivity. make sure that your computer will be able to go online when you connect it the modem directly.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

For SMC7904WBRA :: How to use Cable Modem on ADSL router/modem


Looks like your device does not support playing router for cable internet. Would recommend you get an actual router, or alternately if you have a computer with two network adaptors you could plug one into cable modem, plug other in to LAN side of router, then configure turn Windows Internet Connection service, will need to disable the DHCP service on the router. I highly recommend you get a real cable/dsl router to do this tho. Linksys 54g series has been one of my favorites.

SMC barricade g and timing out


just a few things that can be checked, firstly in the routers settings look at the transfer speed of the router(not the connection speed) and see if it's set at 108MBPS, if so your wireless network cards on your pc's may only be able to connect at a maximum speed of 54MBPS, unless you have the latest 108 or 125MBPS g type cards. Secondly you should be able to check the wireless signal strength by the icon in your task bar or software you use, as if you have thick walls or objects in the line of the signal from router to pc's, the strength drops and can read low and therefore cause you to lose internet connection entirely. You can also try changing the channel at which the router runs, normally this is channel 2, but trying channel 11, which is the farthest away from appliance interference may give you better results, but both router and network card channel numbers will have to be changed.
