Laptop died and now I cant connect my desktop with the belkin usb adapter. It just keeps saying aquiring network address.

Use the Ethernet cable to verify the router or modem is working and connects to the Internet. If so, then check your wireless adapter in the desk top through device manager - it should detect the Belkin. Also, verify you are entering the correct WEP keys to access the wireless connection to the router or modem - sometimes it gets typed in wrong.

I never set up a password for this router but everytime i tried to conect to internet thru my laptop it asks me for a passowrd. is there anything like a universal password that i should use?

if its asking you for a wep key, you must go into the modems page and get it.

i think best way to find the modem page is goto start and in run type cmd, then type ipconfig, the default gate way is the adress to your modem page type this number with is some thing like into your internet explorer page, this should bring you to your modem. navagate through this untill you find wireless settings and in there you will see the wireless wep key. if it ask you for a password try admin and pass admin or admin with no pass, you can google what your password is to this modem if you have a problem. hope this helps,

you do all this on the computer that is conected.

Dell Dimension 4700C Desktop PC, internet issue.

Try and test the computer and modem connection by hooking it up directly by an ethernet cable..

If the internet connection stays solid when cabled up..

Then try either changing or removing the wep or wpa encryption on your wireless network, and seeing if that allows the computer to stay connected.

Also try disabling the firewall on your computer, and also on your modem.

My desktop won't connect wireless to the internet after installing a dlink dwl-510 wireless card, its says the installation was successful but when i try to connect to my network by puting the network key...

First make sure your modem is wireless, if it is not, you need to purchase a wireless router that connects to your modem. If that is all in place and you still have no connection, you may have to unplug modem and or wireless router for 30 second then replug back in, wait a few minutes, then try to get on line, if that does not work, go to the desktop, go to start, then to run command, punch in cmd, then enter, a black screen should appear, type in ping then a space then your ip address, like mine is if you don't know it call who you have for internet service, ask them for it, that said press enter, you should receive a message saying 4 packets sent 4 packets received 0 loss, this now means your connection is good, and you should be able to go online, also within windows is a network troubleshooter, you can go there: start:control panel: network settings.also one other big reason it could be also is that your modem is secure, and has a wep key, you need that to make a connection, the wep key is printed under your modem, write it down. Then go to internet explorer like you are going online, now look on the task bar all the way to the right, right click the little computer scrren go to open network connections, strat a new connection, follow the prompts, and when asked put your wep key in.

Wireless adapter fails to negotiate with a secure modem

Ok, It looks like you have a DSL connection for your internet service. The problem you are having is that you are missing the WEP key inorder to connect to the modem with a secure link. The Modem has to be set to use WEP security and then there are a number of security keys that can added for security. Your modem is not configured for WEP, otherwise you would not be able to connect to it with no security.

You will have to read the information and access the modems setup features to enter the keys. You may have to go to the manufacturers web site and download the manual from it. If Verizon does not give you access to the modem for adjustment then you may need to have them setup the wep and email you the keys so you may copy and paste them into your connection configuration. Depending on the security level of the modem the longer the key the more secure. Some modems use a transmit key and a receive key in order to make the connection more secure. I would also check the modem and see if it has any options for WPA security, which are much better than the WEP. On any computer that connects to the network you have to create the connection with the WEP key or keys. If the modem uses these different keys then you have to match them. Say the modem WEP key is X to transmit and Y to receive, then the computers WEP would be set to Y to transmit and X to receive. The keys are also case sensitive numbers and letters, and the longer the better for network security. The manual will tell you the allowable maximum length you can use for the key. You can use the same key for transmit and receive if you wish to make it easier on you, but it all boils down to the type of security you programmed into the modem.

Read the owners manual for the modem and then you will have an idea what and how to get the two wireless connections to talk securely to each other. Currently your system is wide open and anyone can log on to your system without security, even the next door neighbor. Good Luck, RAC

Installing a netgear router


Optimum appears to be a cable company. From what I can see on their site they provide no guidance as to how to configure your router. Both pieces of information (and info from the netgear site) lead me to believe that they operate successfully with the factory default configuration in the router.

Currently you probably have an ethernet cable connecting Optimum's modem to one of your computers. That cable needs to connect to the single Internet port on the router instead of your computer. Then connect another ethernet cable to one of the 4 lan or local ports and to your computer. Plug the power into the router. Reboot your connected machine -- Assuming your computer is setup for dynamic addressing it should be working.

If this router is wireless and you have wireless computers to attach -- power on their wireless adapters (built-in adapters have a switch or button). With any luck they will access the internet successfully.

If you have wireless you probably want to change the network name (SSID) from the default name to something like jennet or something else you like.

Now to secure your wireless network, if you have one you need to consult your router's User Guide to see if it supports either WEP or WPA. Likewise check your wireless adapters (could be built in to your computer) to see if they support WEP or WPA. If they all support WPA choose WPA. If not all WPA, if they all support WEP then choose WEP. Wither will require you to configure your router and enter a passphrase. After that is completed you will need to return to your wireless devices and reboot them and when connecting to the network you will have to specifically choose jennet or whatever you named it you will be prompted one time for the passphrase -- enter it. now only computers with the passphrase can access your network.

Wireless configuration

What you will need: Wireless router and a wireless adapter connected to your PC. This is assuming you have a broadband internet connection. Install the wireless router by taking the ethernet cable out of the back of your computer and placing it in the WAN or internet port in the back of your router. Install the wireless adapter inside your PC. Unplug your modem for a minute or so. Then plug in your modem and your router, then turn on your PC. If you are running XP, it should see a list of wireless access points you can access. Select the one for your router (should be the strongest) and hit connect. This will connect you to the wireless router and the internet. Note this solution assumes the following: You have a high speed internet connection, your ISP's modem is connected to your computer via an ethernet cable, and you are running windows XP.
