Can you be more specific? What lights are coming on? what devices are hooked up to it? What kind of router is it, dsl or cable? Who makes it? Please include these details in your question. However, first thing i would do is, try unplugging the power on your modem and router. While you wait the 15-20 seconds needed to clear the devices memories.. make sure the modems ethernet cable is plugged into the WAN or Internet port of the router. Then go ahead and take the ethernet cable from computer 1 and put it in port 1 of the router. Then take computer 2's ethernet cable and plug it into port 2 of the router. Now that you have made sure all the cables are in correctly, take the power cord for your modem and plug it back into the modem. Wait until all the lights are in thei "ready" status. Once they are all lit in ready status, plug the power cord for your router in. Let those lights get to the ready status as well. Once thats done, test your connection. If there is still no result, do the following on each computer: Go to Start>Run type cmd in the dialogue box, you should now have a black window with a blinking cursor, type " ipconfig /release " wait for it to give you the blinking cursor once again and confirm that the list states 0.0.0.0 for each of the items. Then type " ipconfig /renew " What this will do is tell your computer to get rid of its old ip that it had with your modem and search for its new one that the router will assign. The new ip will resemble 192.168.0.100 or 192.168.0.101 depending on which computer you are on. Either way, thats the way its supposed to look. if this action is completed successfully, you should have an active internet connection and you can be on your way. :) good luck !

Try to reset the reset button of the router to return to his default configuration and try to connect. Look for the pin or ballpen then press the reset at least 15 second.

Assuming you have a wireless router in your house and it's turned on, it should be visible. There are several reasons why it may not be. The "broadcast SSID" may be turned off. If so, turn it on. The wireless option may be turned off. If so, turn it on.
You didn't say, but I assume you see other wireless networks in the list. Are you sure yours isn't there? I'd log onto the router and see if the network (SSID) name is what you think it is.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Can i use Bluetooth USB Adapter to connect PC to wireless router?I purchased a new PC that's connected to a wireless router for internet. I want to connect my old PC to the same wireless router. I don't...


Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

No wireless connection


What do you mean by other identical computers have the same location?
Each wireless card has a unique MAC address so they should not interfere with each other. Are the laptops all communicating with the same wireless router or different routers?
If the laptops are communicating with different routers and there is interference between then you should change your wireless router to work on a different channel to the other routers.

Can't get my wireless laptop to work. How do I connect the router to the computer?


First what type of router do you have? What is the model number?
Second ensure that your wireless switch (if your laptop has one) is set to on.
Go into view network connections and ensure your wireless card is enabled.
From you Desktop ensure that you are connected as described in the previous post.
Depending on your router make and model type in the ip address to the router.
Default for linksys is usually 192.168.1.1
DLink is usually192.168.0.1

From here it depends on your specific router.
There should be a wireless setup wizard.

Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.
