Your linksys router may have the SSID Broadcast disabled in setup. If the SSID Broadcast is disabled, wireless will not work.

You must log into the router to change the wireless settings. If you have the manual that came with the router, there should be a step by step for logging in. If not let me know.

For my Dell Dimension 2400, I'm trying to use the Network Setup Wizard, but I can't because it says there is no hardware... Do I need a certain driver or program? I have an ethernet cable that is connected...


To connect your computer to the Linksys wireless router using the LAN card in your computer you need to install the LAN card driver. If you want to use a wireless connection with your Dell desktop, you will need to install a wireless card on your Dell plus the wireless card driver.
For the LAN card driver, download the driver from the Dell WEB site.

You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Hello,

Check to see if the DVD drive is connected to the power supply and the IDE connectors.
Can your dvd drive be displayed in "My Computer"
If yes, then it is connected, so, you will have to reinstall the drivers. They could be corrupted?

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth

Dell XP 200 Dimension ethernet port


Hello.

I'd suggest testing with another computer and the same Ethernet cable to your modem to see if the results are the same and to narrow down which component is the problem.

Was it always slow with this setup or did something change.

Is the Linksys adapter connected via USB ? That would be slower than an internal adapter.

Try updating the Linksys adapter software - Device Manager - rightclick - update driver.

Hope these suggestions help.

Ok, my computers internet is not working...Read and help me!


Wireless internet is basically a radio, and radio signals can be interfered with. Simply running a microwave can make your signal go out. Many wireless phones run on the same frequency as your computer, which can mess it up. In any case, wired is always better than wireless.

Do You have an association button on Your router? If so, the firstly press the button and then try to connect. If not, You must enter IP address of Your computer, like 192.168.0.5 Subnet mask, like 255.255.255.0 IP address of router, like 192.168.0.1 Then, most important - default gateway. If You have another computer connected at the same router, run cmd, then ipconfig in the black MS DOS window that appears after cdm command. Here You can see all parameters of Your TCP/IP configuration. Take a note of the default gateway and put it to TCP/IP settings of Your Linksys device. If it not help, drop me a message.

contact Comcast and have them reset your IP address. also have them ping your modem after they reset IP.

When I try to reinstall my router I can't get beyond the first step as the disk thinks our computer is not connected to the internet when it is. It convinces my computer that it is no longer connected....


Step 1: Turn off your computer, router, and disconnect the power to the modem.

Step 2: Connect one cable between the modem and the router's internet port

Step 3: Connect another cable between the router and the computer.

Step 4: Turn on the computer, then the router, then the modem - in that order.

Step 5: Now try running the setup disk.

Explanation: The modem has a security feature that disallows more than one device from connecting to it at one time. Once a specific device is connected, the modem expects that device to be connected at all times. If you unplug your computer from the modem and plug in the router without disconnecting the power to the modem, the connection will be rejected. This probably explains the reason for the error message you were receiving.

Furthermore, you do not need the installation disk in order to install your router. Open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. A username and password screen will appear, the default is usually admin/admin for both, but if that doesn't work just try admin in the password field. When you have successfully logged into the web utility, you will be able to alter the settings at your discretion. For the most part the router will work upon proper cable connections, however you will want to enable security features to prevent attackers from gaining access to your computer.
