Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Internet access from Windows Explorer 7

I am trying to set up a wireless link from my Dell laptop to a Belkin router.

On the Control Panel/ Network Connections page both the Wireless and Network icons ( I have a network cable connecting them) are shown as connected and working. However I cannot access them from Windows Explorer it will only try my existing dial up network which I have unplugged. How do I list my my wireless connection under Windows Explorer/Tools/Internet Options/Connections.????

You might need to disable the dial-up connection. You might also need to enable the two network connections, sometimes they are disabled upon setup by default? What operating system are you running?

Tip

Belkin F5D7234-4 v1 (important thing)


In Belkin f5d7234-4 v1(only version 1) router, do not disable "WiFi protected setup" learn more about wps
  • If you do so, then the router will no longer work in 90% of cases.
  • The WiFi protected setup is enabled by default in this model.
  • The computers using XP,vista,win7 may not connect to the wireless network. 96cff88.jpg
Solution:
In that case you can add the wireless network manually in the computer.Still if it says error message as "windows cannot connect",then follow these steps according to your operating system.

WINDOWS XP:
Start>
Control Panel>Network and Internet Connections(Network connections)>Right Click Wireless Network Connection icon>Click on Properties>authentication tab>uncheck IEEE authentication

WINDOWS VISTA:
Start>
Control Panel>Network and Internet (Network and Sharing Center)>On your left hand side click on Manage Network connections>Right Click on Wireless Network Connection icon>Click on Properties>authentication tab>uncheck IEEE authentication

WINDOWS 7:
Start >
Control Panel>Network and Internet (Network and Sharing Center)>On your left hand side Click on Change Adapter Settings>Right Click on Wireless Network Connection icon>Click on Properties>authentication tab>uncheck IEEE authentication

  • Now try to access wireless network.
  • If it still says windows cannot connect then no other go.
  • You need to disable WiFi protected setup.This will fix the issue for sure...

Belkin n wireless


Open the router control panel using Internet Explorer. Open wireless page and look for security option. Simplest security measure is setting up a 64b wep encription key it is made of 10 exadecimal numbers (0..9-A..F). It is still a good option to secure home based network. Refer to the router manual for information on how to open the router control panel using internet explorer. Remember to save all changes made to the router before restarting it.

Hope it may help!

Wireless network security


alright... it does depend on the model of belkin itself but here goes... assuming you have windows since most people with mac are QUITE familiar with PCs Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page.You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless . . set it to have a wireless password... (again the exacts depend on your model) by doing this a computer must have that password you made to access the connection.. now depending on you computers operating system(ie: windows 95,98,200,ME,NT,XP vista or a mac) will depend on how you put this "password" into your computer... windows- START-CONTROL PANEL-(network and internet options)NETWORK CONNECTIONS-VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS and when you try to reconnect to your internet connection you will be prompted for the password... IF however your wireless adapters have their own wireless clients then you will have to contact their tech support instead of that last paragraph heres the number to belkin tech support in case your router will not allow you into the interface 1 800 2BELKIN x2263
