Please check the lights on the router. All the lights should be solid and not be blinking. If everything is fine than there would be a need of configuring the router or you need to upgrade the firmware on the router.

Let me know your findings.

**If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

Installed router and now I can't pull up any sites...shows my pc is conn to my network but can't pull up any sites....can't conn when I'm hardwired to router either...any suggestions

did you reset all connections? Start from your DSL/Cable modem power it down. leave it down. Power down the router and leave it down. Wait 2 min and then power up your DSL/Cable modem let it do it's things (approx 45sec) then start up your router and connect your computer.
Is your laptop connecting wireless or wired to the router?

Wireless connection not working

If you have made no changes to your network configuration, try unplugging the power from your router and modem for a minute. Then restore power to your modem, wait for the lights to come on and stay steady (all but PC and activity), then restore power to your router. Once the router finishes "start up" and establishes a connection to your modem, you should be able to connect to it and it should be able to assign an IP address to your computer. If you are unable to see your router in the list of available network connections, then you will need to a) refresh the list of available networks or b) write back for help on how to check the router's configuration. Either way, let me know how you make out.

I keep losing the internet signal and going offline. LAN indicates pending??? How do I perform a system reset with Linux??

Power cycle the system by shutting it down and switching it on after at least thirty seconds. Check network settings to verify the IP address and other related information. Determine if the network card is working adequately. Identify the malfunctioning adapter by disabling the cards one by one. Move one of the portable hosts--such as a laptop--closer to the router. If it works better, interference or low signal strength is the reason for poor Internet access. Inadequate signal performance can be caused by several factors including cordless devices working within the frequency range (2.4 GHz) of a wireless network, shiny surfaces and too much distance between hosts and access points. Resolve this issue by using a wireless repeater?a device that amplifies wireless signal so it reaches distant areas within the premises. Minimize signal interference by maintaining a distance of at least one meter between cordless devices and the router. Alternatively, buy gadgets that function at frequencies other than 2.4 GHz. Try changing the WiFi channel for better results. Check the functioning of wireless router and access points. Adjust the router antenna to get an optimum signal. Most wireless routers come with omni-directional antennae to send signals in all directions, a situation appropriate for a square-shaped network. If hosts are arranged in a linear fashion, use an antenna that sends signals only in one direction. Some portable routers have internal antenna, giving more freedom to users who are on the go. Use an external antenna with such routers. The market now offers antennae with varying strengths, implying some are more powerful than others. See if using a more powerful antenna fixes the problem. Aside from increasing the range of transmitted signals, the reception capacity of hosts can also be enhanced. External WiFi-enabled antennae attached to laptops are now available for this purpose. Change the location of the router and access point. They should ideally be placed centrally between all computers. As the signal bounces off smooth and shiny surfaces, routers and access points should be placed away from windows, doors, mirrors and other metallic surfaces. Examine signal performance by using the monitoring utility that typically comes with the access point. Check that the devices show correct lights. Device lights are an indicator of accurate connections. Different lighting patterns indicate different things. For example, some network cards show green light on successfully establishing a connection. Similarly, the router's wireless LAN (WLAN) light is turned on at all times, even if no device is connected to it. Further, this light blinks when a host communicates with another host. Unexpected lighting indicates a problem. Go through user manuals to get familiar with this feature and make sure the devices show desired lighting behavior. Use wireless Internet utilities to check the SSIDs and channels neighboring wireless networks are using. Change your network's SSID and/or channel if they are the same as that of other networks in the vicinity. See if correct drivers have been installed. Check configuration settings for encryption keys.

I have a linksys router and I am trying to add a new laptop, it will not accept the code to my private network, my daughters laptop is on the network just fine

make sure you are typing your passcode in properly and that your security settings are correct (WEP, WPA, WPA2).

If they are, ensure on the router that you have enough hosts available in your network. You can specify on most routers that you only want 2 hosts to connect, etc, as a means to prevent rogue users from connecting to your access point.

Go to the Device Manager and check Wireless Network Adapter properties. Is the Wireless adapter installed, working properly and enabled? If not then reinstall the wireless LAN driver.

If it is OK then go to the Control Panel and click on Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection anf then click on Repair. This will make the wireless router issue a new IP address to the wireless LAN card and you whould now get access to the Internet & your network.
If this doesn't work power down your wireless router wait 1/2 minute, power up and boot up your laptop after all the normal LEDs on the wireless are on.

Let me know if you still have problems plus all error messages.

cannnot connect to dlink. any ideas? OK, so here is the deal: about 6 months ago I purchased a brand new laptop and connected it to my DLink router that has been working on our PC for about 3 years now. I also have 2 Playstations and 2 other laptops connected to the D Link (all of which are working fine and NEVER have any problems whatsoever). About 3 weeks ago, I turned my laptop on and tried going online, but much to my surprise, it couldnt connect. Its supposed to automatically connect, but this time it didnt. I figured I would manually connect it. I opened up the window that displays all the routers that the laptop is picking up and i saw my D Link so I try to connect. It attempts, then says "connected" and the after 3 seconds or so, it says "Limited Access". I thought it was a problem with the internet so I checked the other laptops in the house and the Playstation and they are all working fine. I figured it was my laptop so I shut it off and restarted it but it did not work. Next, I tried unplugging the router and waited for 2 minutes or so and plugged it back in. Yay! It worked! I solved the problem! I began surfing the internet for a couple hours when, BAM! It suddenly went out again. I figured I would unplug the router once again to see if it was just some kind of glitch and would work fine this time. I unplug it and repeat the process over again. after 2 hours, it goes out. Everything else in this house seems to be working just fine on the router with no problems whatsoever, except mine. I have not messed with any of the configurations because I have not idea where to even begin so I know it cant be with the configurations. My laptop is new with windows 7, I'm using xfinity as a provider. Side note- I did a test and when I cant connect to the internet with my laptop it fails a "PING" test (no idea what that is), but when I unplug and plug up the router and the internet is fine on the laptop, it will pass the "PING" test. I'm completely clueless about all this, I really hope someone can help. If you have any questions, any at all that might help you diagnose the problem, please ask and I'll try to answer as quickly as possible, I really need this problem fixed. Its horrible having to reset the router every 2 to 4 hours. Recap: New laptop with windows 7, all other laptops and PS3's work just fine even when MY laptop isnt, fails "PING" test when it cant connect to internet, passes "PING" test when it can connect to internet, unplugging the router and plugging it back in will give me internet for a few hours, when laptop cant connect it says "LIMITED ACCESS". any ideas? Thanks to all who help. P.S. Like I have mentioned before, I'm a complete newb and dont really understand too much of the lingo, please break it down barney style for me. Thanks again.
