Running the wizard from the install CD does not find the router and I know the router.modem cables are connected properly... whats next...


Hi,


It seems you're setting up a wireless network thru your router. The basic steps in setting-up a wireless connection applies to all brands of routers. Most softwares provided by manufacturers, both computers and routers, cause problems with Windows due to incompatibility issues. As of the moment, we need to use the Wireless Zero Configuration or the Windows Wireless Manager that comes with all versions of Windows.


Click the link below for proper cable connections in setting up your wireless network. This also provides somewhat a checklist on what you need for wireless connectivity.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx


Then, configure your wireless connection. The following links provides the step by step instructions for each version of Windows:

Windows XP. http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/wlan_client_configure.mspx?mfr=true

Windows Vista. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Setting-up-a-wireless-network

Windows 7. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Setting-up-a-wireless-network


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya!

On my windows xp it says my internet is working but when i try and open a internet page it says it cannot load, please help


FIRST POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Determine which version of IE you have installed. To do so, click "Help" on the IE toolbar and then click "About Internet Explorer." The version will appear in a dialog box. Go to the Microsoft website and upgrade to IE version 7 if you are using an earlier version. By upgrading, you may be able to resolve your IE problems. Repair damaged files automatically using IE 7's "Reset" feature. Go to the "Tools" menu and click "Internet Options." Click on the "Advanced" tab. Click the "Reset" button. Close all other programs if asked, and then click "Reset" to confirm that you want to reset IE and repair the files. Use XP's System File Checker to resolve IE problems. Click "Start" and then "Run." In the "Open" box, type "sfc /scannow" and click "Go." The System File Checker will scan your computer, finding and repairing damaged or missing files. Restart your computer after the process is finished. Update Windows XP to make sure you have the most recent service pack installed. Go to the Microsoft Windows, check for any available updates and install them. SECOND POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Make sure your computer is not too far away from your wireless router and you have a good signal. By placing your mouse pointer over the wireless connection icon, located in the bottom right corner of your taskbar, you can check to see if your signal strength is good. Anything less than a good signal can cause intermittent connections. SOLUTION: You will need to relocate your wireless router closer to your computer. If you have a 2.4 GHz wireless home phone, take notice if you lose the internet connection when placing or receiving a call. These wireless phones interfere with wireless routers because they both operate on 2.4GHz frequencies. If this happens you need to power down the router and then turn it back on. This will happen occasionally but not all of the time. SOLUTION: (1) upgrade your wireless phone to 5.8GHz, (2) use a corded phone or (3) use a wired internet connection to your router. If steps 1 and 2 did not solve your internet connection, borrow a friend?s laptop with a wireless card and see if their laptop can connect to the internet. Be sure to set your friends wireless connection settings to the same settings that your wireless card is set to. If your friend?s laptop connects to the internet then you may have a bad wireless card. Try reconfiguring your wireless card settings before going out to purchase an external wireless card. If your friend?s laptop can?t connect to the internet, try resetting the router to the factory defaults. Change the settings on the wireless card to the same settings as the factory default on the wireless router. If this works you are back in business. If it does not work for either computer, the wireless portion of your router is bad. SOLUTION: Purchase a new router or use a wired connection to one of your router ports.

Can't connect to my router anymore (WEP encrypted).


Hi deray953,

First we need to remove the previous profile in your wireless network. I believe you know the SSID for wireless connection using WEP security. You can check this by going to;

Using Windows XP SP2/3
1. "Control Panel" > Switch control panel to classic view ( look at the upper left side ). > Double click "Network Connections" > Right click "Wireless Network Connections" > choose "Properties"> Click the Tab "Wireless Networks" ( middle tab) > go to the list of profiles and remove the Wireless name or SSID for your home connections. > click OK and Close the properties of wireless.

To reconnect again, you need to know your WEP key or network key for wireless connections if not, you can do this procedure...

1.Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".
d. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
e. take note of the KEY 1 ...that is your WEP key..take note of it.

Connecting Through Wireless Zero Configuration (Windows XP SP1 and SP2)

For Windows XP Service Pack 1:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then, click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then, click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

Connecting to a Wireless Network on Windows Vista:

a. Click Start then select Connect To.
b. Connect to a network window will show up.
c. Select your wireless network's name or SSID and click Connect.
d. It will ask you for a network key. Type in your wireless network key on the field provided. Then, click on Connect.

Cannot get internet connection


You probably have to buy a wireless card and and install it in your computer...there wasn't much in the way of home wireless back in 2002.
Go to your device manager and look at the network adapters and see if you have a wireless adapter installed on your system. If not, you will have to put a wireless pci card in and install it and then you will be able to configure your computer to connect to your router with a wireless connection.

Wireless router


The answer to both your questions is yes. The laptop and the 98 does not care what router they are pluged into, the settings on them will not be affected. Only if you change the adaptors on the the 98 or your XP's will the 98 or XP need any adjustment. (unless you change the WEP key, then it is just a matter of putting the new WEP key in the xp and 98 machines.)

About wi-fi


Windows XP has a built in wifi configuration tool, previous versions of windows dont have this feature. But if you were to buy a wireless card it comes with software for wireless to work on all versions of windows from 98 - XP most if not all new laptops have wifi built in & that will be able to share your broadband connection through the netgear router. You can configure the laptop & pc to share files & printer between each other, easy way of doing that is by using the wireless network setup wizard which can be found in Start -> All Prograns -> Accessories -> Communications -> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
