-- "limited conn.."-- you should configure the internet connection in the router's software ie 192.168.2.1 or any other IP for the router, use ISP help desk for this (if it's free).

Blue screens have numbers and sometimes explanations, usually they pop up because of incompatible driver, chek router software(driver) compatibility.

explanation of blue screens are in the following link:

Cannot connect to internet router is working properly it is connected to my regular computer but cannnot get singal for my notebook


Hello, bevybuns5!

First thing, make sure your WLAN card is turned on, however, without knowing your specific laptop model, I can't help locate it for you. After that, check your router's wireless security code, and assure that you're entering it correctly. Then, if you still aren't able to connect, try manually unplugging the ethernet cable from your PC, then plug the Ethernet cable into the laptop. If you get a signal, skip to the third paragraph, if not then read the next paragraph.

If you aren't getting a physical connection, it could indicate that there is something wrong with some type of software, or operating system settings that aren't allowing you to connect to the internet (leave the network cable plugged in for troubleshooting). Try checking firewall settings (windows firewall is infamous for blocking almost all connections at will). Then, if you're using windows xp, go to the start menu, open the run command, and type "CMD" without quotes (if you're using Vista or Win7, then just type CMD in the search box at the start menu. When the command prompt screen appears, enter this text without quotes "ipconfig /all". If you have an IP address, subnet gateway, and IPv4 configuration, then you're ready for the next step (if not, let me know in a comment, and I'll leave the instructions for that solution). If you're using xp, then right click computer, click properties, go to the hardware tab, then click "Device Manager" (for Vista/Win7, just type Device Manager in the start menu search box). Scroll down (if you have to) to Network, click on it, find your physical network card, right click and uninstall it (don't worry, this won't hurt anything). Wait for a few moments, then right click anywhere in the Device Manager window, then select "scan for new hardware". This will find the NIC you just uninstalled, and reinstall it (with original drivers, unless you've upgraded your Operating System, then you'll have to get the drivers from the manufacturers website via your desktop). Reboot the laptop, and try connecting with the LAN cable again. If this solution doesn't work, leave me a comment describing what you've done, and any error messages that have come up.

If you recieve a signal from the LAN cable, and still cannot connect via the wireless card, then back into device manager we go! For xp users, go to the Start Menu > right click Computer > click Properties > go to the Hardware tab > then click Device Manager. For Vista/Win7 users, open the Start Menu, then type Device Manager. Scroll down and find your wireless card, and if you've tried the solution in the second paragraph, you know what we're gonna do. Right click it, Uninstall the wireless card, wait for a few moments, then right-click anywhere in the Device Manager screen, and select Scan for New Hardware. Reboot the system, and you should be working!

Try getting the driver from the manufacture on the internet. The driver maybe corrupt causing a blue screen. Another solution is to use a live linux cd, example puppy linux and see if works that way.

Try a new setup.
On your computer, insert the supplied Setup CD that came with your Router. Setup should start automatically.

NOTE: If setup doesn't load automatically, please click here.

The first screen greets you with the Software End User License Agreement. Please take a moment to read through and understand the agreement. Once you're ready, go ahead and click Next.

NOTE: The Linksys Wireless-N Router model displayed on the setup screen may vary based on the Linksys Wireless-N Router model you have.
Step 4:
On the next window, please follow the on-screen instructions on how to connect your Linksys Wireless-N Router:
kb21463-002_en.png Plug one end of the power cable into your router and the other end into an electrical outlet.

NOTE: The Linksys E3000 features a power switch, located at the back-end of the unit, next to the power port. Please make sure that this switch is ON. Other Router models may not have this feature.

kb21463-003_en.png
kb21463-004_en.png Plug the Internet cable into the yellow port in the back of your router labeled "Internet". Plug the other end into the modem.
QUICK TIP: Click Show me how for an illustrated guide on how to complete the above instructions.
After completing the above steps, click Next to continue.

kb21463-005_en.png
Step 5:
Setup will now perform a series of tests to determine the optimum configurations for your network. You may notice your computer connecting and disconnecting to a wireless network several times. This is normal. Your wireless network is simply being secured.
NOTE: The setup process automatically generates a unique and secure Wireless Network Name (SSID) for your convenience.

kb21463-006_en.png Step 6:
The next part of the setup automatically detects your Internet connection type. If you are using a DSL connection, you may be requested to enter your account details. If this is the case, simply enter your Account name and Password in the allocated fields. Otherwise, you may skip ahead to Step 7.
NOTE: If you don't know your Account name and Password, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will be able to provide these details.

QUICK TIP: Click Examples to see what your Account name should look like.

kb21463-007_en.png NOTE: Cable Internet users will not see the above screen.
Step 7:
Sit back and wait a moment as setup finalizes your Linksys Wireless-N Router settings, and re-establishes your Internet connection.

kb21463-008_en.png Step 8:
Once your Internet connection is up and running, a confirmation window similar to the screenshot below will appear on your screen. Your Linksys Wireless-N Router is now secure and connected to the Internet. This concludes the setup process. Click OK to continue.

kb21463-009_en.png
Step 9:
You will now be taken to the main Cisco Connect window which lets you manage and further personalize your network settings. If you would like to learn more about the available features in Cisco Connect, please click here. Otherwise, you may click on the Close button to exit Cisco Connect, and begin surfing the Internet right away.
NOTE: To launch Cisco Connect again at later time, on a Windows computer, go to Start>All Programs>Cisco Connect. To launch Cisco Connect on a Mac computer, navigate to the Applications folder in Go, and then start Cisco Connect. For more help on this, please click here.

kb21463-010_en.png NOTE: Cisco Connect is automatically installed each time you use the Setup CD or Easy Setup Key to setup or connect to your Linksys Wireless-N Router.

I'm trying to access my wireless Linksys router to secure it.


First inplug power from router via the jack(not the wall outlet) and then unplug the cable going to the modem, take the blue ethernet cable that comes with router and plug into internet port now you can secure your router without worrying about internet threats. Open your web browser , in the url bar type 192.168.1.1 hit enter and a window should open, asking for username/password if you have not set one the default is admin in the username field then hit enter. If you have already password connected it and forgot password you need to unplug everything from router and then hold down reset button on back. There will be a screen that will walk you through all aspects of setup, security, firewall, wirless setup , wireless security, and it will give you a break down of all options on the right side of each window. Important to setup a passkey!!! Otherwise people can get into your network easy. once setup plug blue cable into ethernet port and modem cable into internet port. plug in power and you should be set. The cd that came with router should be first used. Do not broadcast wireless ssid and use wireless pin to connect computer.

I followed the instruction but can't seem to connect to the internet, do i need a separate modem or is the one in my regular computer enough. i have belkin G wireless router. i have tried everything....


If you are trying to connect wireless you will need a wireless card. Routers are very peticular about the way they are set up. Unhook everything turn everything off and reboot computer, and run the software disc that came with the router. Plug the dsl into the the Blue colored port or Wlan then reboot computer and then plug cable into computer. This should work.

Connect your wireless router
Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.
efefddd.jpg Next, connect your router to your modem:

If you currently have your computer connected directly to your modem: Unplug the network cable from the back of your computer, and plug it into the port labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN on the back of your router.
If you do not currently have a computer connected to the Internet: Plug one end of a network cable (included with your router) into your modem, and plug the other end of the network cable into the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port on your wireless router.
If you currently have your computer connected to a router: Unplug the network cable connected to the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port from your current router, and plug this end of the cable into the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port on your wireless router. Then, unplug any other network cables, and plug them into the available ports on your wireless router. You no longer need your original router, because your new wireless router replaces it.
5641429.jpg Next, plug in and turn on your cable or DSL modem. Wait a few minutes to give it time to connect to the Internet, and then plug in and turn on your wireless router. After a minute, the Internet, WAN, or WLAN light on your wireless router should light up, indicating that it has successfully connected to your modem.



3.
Configure your wireless router
8d8f1b2.jpg Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, you should temporarily connect your computer to one of the open network ports on your wireless router (any port that isn't labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN). If you need to, turn your computer on. It should automatically connect to your router.
Next, open Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router.
You might be prompted for a password. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router.
As a quick reference, this table shows the default addresses, usernames, and passwords for some common router manufacturers.

Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three things:
1.
Your wireless network name, known as the SSID. This name identifies your network. You should choose something unique that none of your neighbors will be using.
2.
Wireless encryption (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which help protect your wireless network. For most routers, you will provide a passphrase that your router uses to generate several keys. Make sure your passphrase is unique and long (you don't need to memorize it).
3.
Your administrative password, which controls your wireless network. Just like any other password, it should not be a word that you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings.
The exact steps you follow to configure these settings will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting, be sure to click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes.
Now, you should disconnect the network cable from your computer.
4.
Connect your computers
If your computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop). Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Note: The steps below only apply if you're using Windows XP Service Pack 2. If you're running Windows XP and you don't have Service Pack 2 yet, plug your computer into your wireless router and download and install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Windows XP should show an icon with a notification that says it has found a wireless network.
5118333.gif Follow these steps to connect your computer to your wireless network:
1.
Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower-right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks. If you run into any problems, consult the documentation that came with your network adapter. Don't be afraid to call their tech support.
2.
The Wireless Network Connection window should appear and you should see your wireless network listed with the network name you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper-left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower-right corner.5914228.gif 3.
Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.
4.
Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. After you're connected, you can now close the Wireless Network Connection window. You're done.
Note: If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
