Wireless router connection


IF the ROUTER has wireless "enabled", and your device/computer has wireless (and the wireless is ON) then you should see the router's name when you search for "wireless connections" click on the name and enter the password for the router connection and should be able to connect, IF you can't see the router's name then unplug the router and wait 20 seconds to 1 minute, then plug the router back-in wait for the wireless "light" to come back on, and try again. Hope this helps...

How to reconnect HP Chromebook to internet thru desk computer and router.


The Chromebook has a wireless network interface.
So, it does not connect to your computer.
Instead, it connects to your wireless router.
If you do not remember that password for your wireless network,
you need to "reset" your router to its "factory-settings", and then recreate the name of your wireless network, and enter a new password, to define it.

Help me to connect 2 dell computers with cables


The easiest method of connecting any computers is to use a router which will also provide a DHCP server component to serve up local TCPIP addresses to each connected computer.

To connect to the router you would need standard ethernet cables which are available widely and which would plug into the network port of the computer and the other end into the port on the router. You need one cable for each computer to router connection.

If you have computers with WiFi / wireless capability, then you would need a wireless router and could then connect without the need for cables.

Take a look at the Practically Networked web site which has revies of various types of routers and also provides tutorials on networking and other related subjects which would help you.

We have BT broadband. When we occasionally have to reset the router, everything except the 2 Dell Dimension 5150 desktops works via wireless. They refuse to reconnect. All the other Desktops / laptops work...


Not sure exactly what your hardware setup is, but I would reboot the broadband router, then reboot the wireless router. Everything should come up clean, but give it at least 5 min. To help connect after reboots, you can choose "repair" from the wireless icon in the system tray (XP?) or renew your IP address. Start --> Run... and type ipconfig /renew

Hope this helps!
If so, please leave a rating!

It lost its LAC and right now my computer is running on the wireless even though it's not wireless.


Your router's cable is connected in the wrong connection.

1. Remove the cable from the wireless connector
2. Insert it into one of the ports of the router that has LAN not WAN.
3. You will be able to connect your wireless and wired computers to the router.

This could have blue for WAN or Yellow for WAN and then the rest can have yellow for the 4 PCs to connect.

I have a wireless card in my Dell Dimension


The first thing I would try would be to reset the card, by removing the cover (if you are comfortable), removing the card from the slot and reinserting in the slot or moving the card to another slot (if there is an identical slot). If that doesn't work, replace the wireless card either with another wireless card or a USB wireless network adapter (external adapter that connects to a USB port). Good luck.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Wireless Connectivety (Home)


Ok so off we go, first thing is since you reinstalled the OS, computer probably lost the driver files for the wireless device in you Dell Dimension. So you will have to find out the manufacturer of the wireless device and reinstall those drivers if you have not done so.

To verify this you need to go to the Device Manager and look for any hardware in the computer that is not installed properly (will have a symbol by it) defining there is a problem with the device, or not recognized by the computer.

Once the device manager comes back ok (everything operating normally) then you need to go to network connections. Look to see if you have a wireless connection there? If you do, then you need to connect to the wireless access point (router) So View available wireless connections. then connect to it.

There is the possibility that your friend set up the router connection with a wep kep (encryption) If so then you might just need to reset the router to factory defaults to remove this. (resetting the router to factory defaults is different depending on your router model) You will have to look this info up in the manual. Once the encryption is off it will become an open access point and you should be able to connect to it ok.

I know this was a lot of information in a short time, if you have questions please feel free to let us know.

Also if anyone else has a better (or easier) way for David to accomplish all of this please ring in.

Belkin wireless adapter


Sometimes wireless phones will interfere with the signals. If the router or PC is anywhere near a phone, it might have a problem. I have one wireless network card that gives me fits like that. I have yet to get a PC working with it. I have other wireless cards that work fine. I also switched to 5GHz phones, which helped my old laptop. Check to make sure there's not a conflict with the encryption used by either the dell or the router.
