My suggestion would be to first disable any encryption on the router to make your wireless network simple first to try and troubleshoot these problems. check if any MAC or IP Address filters are active on the wireless router, you can either enter the IP address of the slingbox wireless adapter or its MAC address if you HAVE enable filtering, but again, try diagnosing without filtering or encryption enabled. Also ensure your slingbox wireless adapter has its settings set to 'automatically assign IP address (enable DHCP)' so it gets its address automatically.

Hi Linda,

Here are somethings to try. You should not have this problem if you have cable internet. If you have DSL service make sure the modem is in bridge mode, next make sure the settings are MTU enabled and finally place your setting to 1492. If you need further assistance please email with all information on yor set up and the DISH Network account number.


Thank You

Bought the refurbed wireless and can't get the Software to download. Tried the disc and the website. What a pain in the ****. This is a real drag. Got any ideas? I am about to give up. Merl


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configoration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
Connect your DSL or cable modem to the D-Link router.

I have a acer aspire 5735z and cannot connect to my new adsl modem, telstra ( internet provider) told me to ring acer, will the acer company tell me i need a new drive and will i have to pay for it??? this...


Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

My xbox won't connect to my wireless router


Before connecting the X-box or play station or nintendo WII to the network, Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router.
if you don't know the wireless settings , then you will need to open the router set up to find the wireless settings.

Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

Trouble connecting to the internet on X-box ,Play station or WII ?

You can try to reduce the MTU settings on the router. if the MTU on the router is set to 1500 then change the MTU to 1365.
Also you will need to open the ports on the router.
For WII port numbers are ==> 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, 443.
For XBOX port numbers are ==> 53, 80-88, 3074
For Play station port numbers are ==> 80, 443-447 ,5223, 3478-3479, 3658, 10070-10080.




X-BOX

On the x-box you will need to connect to the wireless network now.
Open the main Interface of the X-Box.

1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

If you are looking for a wired connection, all you need is a Ethernet cable to be plugged in to the LAN part of the router. If you want it wirelessly connected, run the wireless software in your laptop. In the available wireless networks, choose your network and type in the passphrase ( if you have wireless security enabled ) . This should help you connected .
Hope this helps
Thanks

Quick Router setup Wizard


Hi There!!

As is understand you are tyring to setup your wireless router to your laptop. However the cd does not work.

You could try these steps,
There is no problem if you are using XP media center. Please configure your router to the laptop that was last connected to the internet modem. You can also use the ethernet port on the modem directly connected to the WAN port of the wireless router. Then turrn on the Modem and the wireless router. Try to minimize the distance between the wireless router and all the laptops to be in the range of 1-30 meters.

Once you power on the modem, router and laptop, see that all the lights on the router are ON.i.e power, link, wan and lan light the port that is connected to your computer. Please verify your connections if the lights are not ON.

Now connect your laptop to the LAN port of the wireless router and see that your laptop IP address lies in the subnet of 192.168.0.xxx [where xxx is between 2 to 254].This information you can see in your network connections TCP/IP settings. The other best thing that you can do is set your computer IP Address to automatic.

Now open a web browser and type http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter. Once the login page appears enter the username as admin and leave the password as blank click enter.
The click the Advanced button and then Advanced Network. Uncheck the Enable UPnP check box, then click save setting. Now reboot your computer and router.
