I'm having problems going wireless

Hello experts....

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

    Rick and Edo, I found it was my settings in control panel. I've now got the machine to look for Wireless. Since then I've been able to work wirelessly. The only problem I have now is that I still need the modem and the wireless router so I still have cables trailing. Its a minor problem now so I'm very happy thank you for trying to sort me out.

Enable nighthawk 5g on laptop


Your wireless adapter, the one in your laptop, the laptop we know nothing about because... well who knows why you would withhold that vital bit of information, all I can do is speculate, and speculation is usually counter-productive, and I answer questions on this board to be productive, so what I am getting around to say is that the aforementioned wireless adapter, the one in your laptop, needs to be 5 GHz capable. I would know this if you cared to tell us what make and model of laptop you have as opposed to just the router which we know is 5 GHz capable because you told us. Of course, by posting in the Wireless Network Adapter forum, you can assume that we can look at your post and inherently know all the information about your problem because we are "experts".

Can't connect wirelessly from inspiron 1720 to canon pixma mx 882


Hello Kamar,
First a question or two. Does the 1720 connect to any other wireless device like a router or remote hard drive? If it does then then problem may be in the Pixma printer. If you do not have a router that also will be a problem. This wireless printer will not work without a router or WAP while the laptop can thru it's 100base-T hardwire connector. If you do have a wireless point then go to the following Cannon website to access the wireless configuration help.
http://www.usa.canon.com/CUSA/assets/app/pdf/wireless/setup_882_win.pdf

Now is step4 you are instructed to get the name(SSID) and the network key of your wireless hardware. Your wireless hardware may be configured to not broadcast the name so when you reach step7 you may have to enter the name in the address screen.

We hope that this helps. If you have other questions. Please return and post them here.

I am using a Linksys Wireless -G Router 2.4 GHz. While I can access AOL it is with an unsecured connection. How can I change this to a secure connection?


Hello Aberlin746,

The most secure way to connect to the Internet would be to connect to your router via a wired connection rather than wirelessly. Wireless security is pretty easy to defeat.

That's not always an option or convenient though so, beefing up your wireless security and using a firewall (software) would be in order.

Linksys, as it happens, has tutorials on networking security. You can find them HERE.

You'll need to know how to configure your router as well (in order to implement the suggestions Linksys offers).

So, please, go HERE and choose your router's model number. You'll then be taken to a page where you will have access to downloads, FAQs and manual(s) for your router.

W/ respect to a software firewall, I've used Comodo Personal Firewall for years.
(A) It's **free**
(B) It is **very** effective
(C) It isn't a resource hog (it doesn't bog down your system) like so many firewall and antivirus products available from major manufacturers today.
(D) When you disable it, it REALLY is disabled. So, if you're having configuration problems, you don't have to uninstall the product to get your Internet access working again. (Unlike w/ firewall products from Zone Labs, Symantec's Norton line, and McAfee).
(E) When it's uninstalled, it REALLY is uninstalled. It doesn't leave a mess in its wake like the major manufacturer's products I've already mentioned.

If you have more questions or comments on this topic, please, do let us know.

Very poor wireless range


Hello Wee Mich

You can check the documentation for your router HERE and see if there're any settings you can change.

Is there a lot of brick, concrete or metal in the walls of your home?

Have you tried using wireless repeaters?

They can improve things considerably under the right conditions.

The real issue is wireless radios work best LOS (line of site). So, even having a powerful antenna may not do much good if it can't get through the structures in your home.

Upgrading your wireless equipment, strategically locating your router, upgrading your devices' wireless antenae and using repeaters to effectively send signals 'round cornes can help a great deal.

Below are some common tips for improving your wireless network's performance.

Which d link pcmcia card will work with a d-link 514 wireless router?


Hello pig86

Your router is uses the 802.11b wireless standard. You can use a PC card that works w/ 802.11g or 802.11b. Those that are compatible w/ the 802.11g standard are also "backward compatible". In other words, they will also work w/ the older 802.11b wireless standard.

You don't have to purchase a PC card made by the same manufacturer as your router. You can mix and match manufacturers of your networking hardware/equipment just fine. They all adhere to the same industry standards.

As for choosing a specific PC card for your laptop, we'll need to know the make (manufacturer) and model of your laptop.

We will also need to know what operating system your are running on your laptop. (We want to make sure that drivers would be available for the PC card when running w/ your operating system.)

If you'd like us to help you w/ that, just post back here w/ that information and we'll be happy to.

For documentation on your router, please, go HERE.

***************
Please, let me know if this response was "Helpful" or "FixYa" for you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

If I did not answer your question satisfactorially, plz, b4 assigning a "Thanks for Trying" or lower rating to my "Solution", let me know. I may have misunderstood you or the problem you are experiencing.

In any case, I will work w/ you until your problem is resolved or diagnosed. I promise! :)

Thank you
