Hi , Check whether your computer has N wireless or G wireless (could be G+N) is yes then also check whether is set to G mode - check the router is also set to G (N will be good if your router support ), check the channel on router (1,6 or 11) .
Main to check - everything will work only if and if you are able to see the wireless signals on your TV . If you are able to see the w/l network then try to connect with right password (network key if w/l is secure). if you are able to see the network key and not able to connect the above can help . More info like error message will help in sorting out the issue .

How to convert to access point


I assume you're talking about using a wireless router as an access point. First, you need to run a wire from on of the LAN ports the new wireless router to one of the LAN ports of the new wireless router. (The back of your router has one Internet/WAN port (often yellow or blue) and several LAN ports.) The simplest way is to use a Cat5 or Cat6 patch cable, which you can buy in any length from 1 to 300 feet. (It's possible you'll need a crossover cable, but I haven't needed one of those in years.) If you're thinking of putting them in different parts of the house, and you can't run a cable between them, then you probably can't do this. (There are devices that are capable of creating a wireless bridge, but you'd need both devices to share that capability, and it's not typical on home devices.) You could try getting a pair of devices that use your house's electrical wiring (like these http://us.dlink.com/product-category/home-solutions/connect/powerline/), but that's not always successful (you need both outlets on the same circuit, for one thing).

Second, you need to change the configuration on the old router/new access point. That box is doing a lot of things that you don't need it to do any more, but I don't bother disabling them, except for one thing: DHCP. Wireless routers are generally configured to hand out IP (network) addresses to other devices on the network (your computers, DVRs, game consoles, etc.). If you have two devices (your new wireless router and the access point you're creating) handing out network addresses, it can get messy. So you need to log into the old router and disable DHCP (which some manufacturers call "assign network addressing" or "IP address distribution" or something like that).

One other step you may need to take is to change the IP address of the new access point. Still logged into the router, find where the LAN (local) IP address is set, and change it if you can. There are 2 reasons this can be important.
1) If your access point and your new wireless router both have the same IP address, you'll get lots of problems.
2) If your access point and your new wireless router are not on the same subnet, you'll only be able to login to the access point through a wired connection (and even then you may have to change your computer's IP address to match the access point's subnet.)
You can change the access point's address to anything you want, but you need to make sure of 2 things:
1) No other device has that IP address.The easiest way to ensure this is to make the last number in the address 253. That address almost never gets used.
2) It's on the same subnet as your new wireless router. I won't get into subnetting; what you need to know for your home network is that devices on the network can only communicate with other devices whose address starts the same way. For all the home routers I've seen, it's either 192.168.0 or 192.168.1. So you need to log into your new router and see if it has the address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (or you could open a command window on your computer and give it an "ipconfig" command, which would show you your computer's IP address, which will have the same 3 numbers). Then login to the access point and give it the IP address 192.168.0.253 or 192.168.1.253.

In a nutshell, make sure the first 3 numbers match all the other devices on the network, and that the last number does not match any device on the network.

Good luck!

How do i set up my router msi


Is that a standalone router or a modem/router combination ? If it is a standalone router, in order to set up a home network to access the Internet, you need a modem (cable modem or DSL modem) which must be given to you by your Internet provider when you subscribe for Internet service. Your Internet provider has to provide instructions on how to set up your modem. A modem acts as a router too and has a WLAN port and a number of LAN ports (between 1 and 4). The WLAN port is where you hook up your modem to the Internet using an Ethernet cable. One end of the Ethernet cable goes into WLAN port of the modem/router and the other end goes either into a cable outlet (if your Internet provider is a cable company such as Comcast) or a phone jack if your Internet provider is a phone company such as AT&T or Verizon). To connect your desktop computer to the Internet, you plug it in any of the LAN ports on the modem/router. Contact your Internet provider for set up instructions for your specific brand and type of modem.

Hope this helps.

Solid yellow Internet light on D-Link DIR-825


Try a new working LAN cable between your internet modem and the router. Is your internet modem connected and working? You should be able to directly connect using a LAN cable to check the modem connection. Reboot your modem and router.

I bought your dlink wbr-1310 awhile back,bought a new laptop with windows 7 and followed all the instructions for installing the router and software and was sucessful except windows says they dont reconize...


Is your router running b/n/g network and what security setting are you using like password to access your personal in home network. Because your laptop will need to have the same key as router is using. It is also a good idea to clear all other ip address that windows may have saved.
Step1: internet explore under tools> internet options> tab Connections > LAN settings>(click) Automaticly dettect settings
Step2: click apply/ok to save changes
Step3: goto start menu > run/seach type cmd (this will open command prompt)
Step4: at blinking curser type" ipconfig /release all " hit enter ** donot type qotes
Step5: at curser type " ipconfig /renew "
This should fix your problem. However if you need more help please reply after you have try this.
Thank You Have a good day

  • 2Use this open port to connect the old router to the new routers WAN(wide area network) port. If your old router has an uplink port, use this instead of the last LAN(local area network) port and keep the last LAN port open.
  • 3Connect the computers to the ports on the new router.
  • 4Configure the new router settings to match the old router settings.
  • 5Use IPConfig to check you current IP address
  • 6Use this information to create a static IP on the computers connected to your network.
  • 7Set the Default Gateway to the IP address of the router in which the computer connects.
  • 8Check that all computers can access the internet and "see" each other on the network.

    Most likely the connection inside your new gateway is bad - you should return it under warranty & get a new one.

    Cant share internet using a router


    Hi There, what model of dlink router do you have?
    Also, Or just check the ports you have in your router, the internet should be connected to the WAN port and the switch and/or computers to the LAN port(s).
    If the router is new by default you should be able to access internet by plug everything the way I told you.
    Also, by default the router ip address should be 192.168.1.1, type that into your web browser address bar, then you will have access to the router admin web page were you can see the status page, there will tell you if you have or not access to Internet really. Maybe the problem is that the router have no access internet access at all.

    Ipod touch - wireless connect to my MSI RG54g2 router


    Hi and welcome to FixYa,

    Initially, to your queries:
    • instruction book - pls click here;
    • passwords - open a browser, the MSI RG54G2 web interface is 192.168.1.254, password is "admin", less the quotes;
    • iPod touch - will auto detect your MSI
    • setting on my router - if allows your computer(s) to access the Internet, no further settings required;
    • iPod can connect to the internet - if no WEP or WPA is set on the MSI router.
    This is of course assuming that the MSI RG54G2 is allowing your computers to access the Internet lready and will be shared to the iPod Touch.

    Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS


    Hi,

    I would suggest that you get a Wireless Router something like a LinkSys WRT54G. There other brands and models available. With such a WiFi router, you can still connect your old PC using the LAN/Ethernet and connect your new laptop without any wires. Most (but not all) would require that you run first the CD before installing the router.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FixYa.
