First check to make sure you have all the light on the Dlink router lighting up (i.e. power, internet, ethernet, ect). Weather the lights are good or not, check your cables and make sure they are secure. If all the light are proper, then unplug the router for a few seconds then plug it back in. Once all the lights are on try again. If you are using wireless, plug in wired (ethernet cable) to the router. Depending on your OS and settings, you should see in the lower right hand corner a computer icon. If this has a red X on it, the router is not providing a signal to the computer. If everything looks good wired, try the internet again.

If the lights are not correct on the router and checking the cables did not fix the issue, you most likely have a problem with the router its self.

I hope this helps, if not comeback with more information (i.e. what lights are on the router, the IP address the router is giving the computer, wired works but wireless does not, the more information the better).

My laptop works using my Belkin router, but my desktop will not connect to the internet


hello

your notebook has WiFi, which is radio frequency internet, it transmits and receives radio signals (frequencies) . Your desktop, most likely, does not support WiFi on its own , so you need to use RG45 cable , ethernet cable to be connected from your desktop to the router.
lan-cable-rg45-cat5e-cat6-utp-ftp-acr2101-.jpg



So in other words thsi is what happens with your notebook and the router.
  1. your notebook has built in wireless adapter which translates data into a radio signal and transmits it using an antenna.
  2. A wireless router receives the signal and decodes it. The router sends the information to the Internet using a physical, wired Ethernet connection, to your modem (supplied by your Internet Service Provider)
The process also works in reverse, with the router receiving information from the Internet, translating it into a radio signal and sending it to the computer's wireless adapter.

The radios used for WiFi communication are very similar to the radios used for walkie-talkies, cell phones and other devices.


you need to connect your desktop to the router via RG45 ethernet cable.

My computer is not connecting to my Dynex wireless router. I've called my locate cable subscriber and they told me that it's a router problem. I've disconnected the router several times and it shows that...


First off, verify that you can connect to your cable modem directly. After that, hook up your Dynex wireless router and reboot your cable modem. After this, directly connect your computer to the Dynex router (using a cable). If you cannot get an Internet connection, then there is some issue with your Dynex router configuration. It's possible that there might be an IP address conflict with the cable modem. It would be best to contact support for configuring the Dynex.

If you can connect to the Internet with your computer connected directly to the Dynex router, then there must be some router configuration problem affecting your ability to connect wirelessly. You'll have to check the configuration--might be a good idea to completely reset the router and start over. If that doesn't help, you should contact Dynex customer support, as each router has its own configuration specifics. Good luck.

Cant hook up


ok... so im guessing your using sat for internet, so you would set one plug with zyxel PL-100 and it sending signal in, while adding zyxel PL-100 a computer works, and another craps out... Solution: use a router
insert satalite into wan port, set up router
run a client wire from the router to a zyxel PL-100
and the others should pick up off that one..

like so.. :direct from zyxel website specific for pl-100

I've had my Icebox for 2 1/2 years. Can't log on to internet.


I do not fully understand your problem I think you are trying to connect a wireless connection from a router to computer if that is the case you need to do this with a USB lead to establish your settings and once the connection is established then you can shift the computer

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

Perhaps one of your ethernet cables is bad?

When everything is connected, the "WAN" light on your router should go on, as well as the lights for whatever network connections your are using for your computer.

Obviously the cable that you used to connect your computer directly to the modem is working, so try replacing the other one.

Unable to connect to internet wirelessly, but i can use cable to connect then, it says the internet connect is linksys internet


Do you have a wireless card? Is it installed? linksys usually doesnt have many problems. Depending on what computer you have you might need to flick a switch or press a button somewhere to turn on your wireless nic. If you do have a wireless card look for some drivers online. I cant tell you too much without knowing what computer you have or how you have your router set up.
