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.

My wireless network isn't working


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

Hard wire computer works roku works [ wireless] But my laptop [wireless] isn't


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

My wireless router isn't working


I think you should reset the router and reconfigure it.
If the wired computer is also not working then I think you need to reconfigure it for sure.

Do i need a router to get internet?


Not familiar with the Ninento DS, but if it has wifi capability then yes you will need a wireless router in the mix for it to connect to the internet at your home. I would recommend enabling security and changing the default password as a minimum if you get a wireless router. However it isn't a requirement to get it to work. Simply buy the wireless router, connect an ethernet cable from the wan/uplink/internet port on the router to the ethernet port on the cable/dsl modem and connect the power. That is the minimum required steps to setup wireless.

Was working ok then internet down and red light on router constant - have done the turn off turn on routine and reset router to no avail. have also plugged indirectly to computer - green light then comes...


Try rebooting both the modem and the router. It could be that the modem didn't pick up it's ip number when the internet went down. Then try pluggint you computer directly into the modem first to make sure it is setup and working properly. Then plug in the router (to the modem) and the PC plugged in directly to the router and check.

Once you have it connecting at that point then check the wireless settings on both the router and the pc. Then enable the wireless on the pc, unplug the LAN and switch to wireless network on the pc and see if it won't work.

If it works plugged in on the LAN but then not on the wireless then either your configuration isn't correct (ie wrong gateway ip number...gateway should be the same ip number as the router...ie 192.168.***.***) or perhaps the wireless part of the router died. It is possible for the wireless to die and the LAN (hard wired connection) to still work.

D-Link wireless router has been greta, until yesterday- the Roku boxes say my router strength is excellant, but all of a sudden, the box can no loger connect to the Internet even when I select my router-...


The router most likely is not synced properly with the modem. Your computer might still have a strong connection to the router, but isn't getting an IP address. Power everything down, including the modem and restart in this order:
1. Modem - allow a minute for it to run thru its diagnostics 2. Router 3. Computer
Once you've done this, if you're ISP isn't having outages, you should have the internet working again on your computer. If this doesn't work, call your provider.
