Linksys router unidentified network....receiving full signals but showing unidentified network ...i hv checked SSID and key both are correctly entered....


Try resetting the router and then configure it again.
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
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 configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin 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.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Having an issue getting my laptop connected to the internet. The wireless networks appear and it shows that i am connected to the linksys, however i get a dns server issue when i try to go online. It shows...


Hi,
I see that your having issues with you wireless connection, you mentioned that it is an old model Router that has a B wireless signal and that you are connected to the Router but you get an Error about the DNS having issues, try checking your Routers Network Key, make sure that your Network Key in the Laptop and Router are the same.
- to get in your Belkin Router you must type in your Default Gateway on you browser ex. IE, Firefox 192.168.2.1 then press enter after typing your Belkin's Default Gateway you should get a window prompting you for a user name and password
mvincentc_15.jpg

your user name would be admin and the password leave it blank then press enter unless you have changed the user name and password setting of your Belkin.
- check under wireless and security to see your Network Key/Security Key and copy what you have in you router and use it on your laptops network security to be able to access internet from your Belkin Router.
Hope this helps.

Linksys wrt160n network name not showing up?


Hi Renwar13,

This is because on the router wireless page the name of the network was changed.

Usually Linksys is the default name and the person who manages the wireless network would have changed to some other name so as to prevent un authorized access to the WLAN.Please check the right name of the signal and try.


Regards,
Gary.

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

Wireless network using usb modem


First thing that you have to do is to check if the wireless light on your linksys wrt150N is lit. If it is, then that means that it is emitting wireless signal so you can connect wirelessly.

Then, install your verizon usb mobile broadband card on your desktop. When you plug it to the usb port, a pop up balloon would show on your page which would say FOUND NEW HARDWARE. you could click on it and choose the CD-drive to install OR you can run the cd and have it install on itself.

After installing the usb, try to connect to your wireless network. Start > Connect to > and then click on the name of your wireless network.

Wireless computer and home computer


Make sure that the modem is plugged in to the wireless linksys router. Plug in your desktop to the ethernet port of the router and check if you're able to get online. If you have a cable or dsl connection, make sure that your router is already configured to work with the modem. Your laptop should automatically detect the wireless network. Scan your wireless network by right clicking the wireless network icon and click on view available wireless networks. The default name of the linksys router is linksys. Try to connect and see if you're able to get online.

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network


It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?

Xbox 360 wireless adapter not finding network


Hello Sir,

Reset your AX by holding a pin or pen tip and count to 20.
Plug Airport Express
Wait a few minutes

1. Open Airport Utility
2. Manual Setup
3. Airport Icon -> Wireless Mode -> Join a wireless network
4. Network Name -> Enter the SSID of your Linksys router
5. Choose the same wireless security that you are using on your Linksys Router
6. Wireless Password -> Enter the wireless key that is on your Linksys router.

In the Music Icon, you should be able to find "Enable iTunes"

AX will continue to blink for a bit, perhaps a minute, while it searches and connects to the Linksys Router.

Should turn green.

Good luck.

No internet connection on two desktops


Hi Tony, you think your laptop is connecting to your neighbor's wireless network. So try this.
1:Go to Control Panel, click on network and internet connections, double click NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Point your mouse to the WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS. It should show that you are connected(and it will show the name of the network that you are connected to). If you do not recognize the name of the network that you are connected to then you are connected to your neighbor's network.

IF YOU ARE CONNECTED TO linksys--unsecured wireless network, there is a chance that your wireless router is not functioning at the moment.

Try this first and i will be waiting if you have a follow up problem.


Good Luck

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
