SOURCE: Laptop not connectiong to wireless network

is there a switch on the laptop either in the power management software or an actual switch on the laptop case (or a button) that turns the wireless on and off? That's probably the problem, not your router.

SOURCE: Connecting a netgear wireless router to a 2wire

Are the router addresses assigned on the same subnet?
many routers have a base address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 meaning all addresses 192.168.0.? are part of their network.

One problem can be that both routers can be using the same subnet -- not an issue if they are connected to different connection points (such as two different houses) on the internet. However when connected to each other in your house they are confused because they have the same two different networks with the same addresses. -- for slightly different reasons --

For those that want you to connect from one router to the wan of the other you need to assure the base addresses are in different subnets -- assuming the one connected to the internet is addressed as 192.169.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 his network as stated before is all addresses 192.168.0.?. Change the second router to a base address of say 192.168.2.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 his network is everything staring 192.168.2.? they are now different and it should work. On the wan side of the router you can assign a unique 192.168.0.? address not in the DHCP range of the first router or accept a dynamic IP address from the first router. The dynamic address is probably the easier and less problematic of the solutions.

For those wanting you to connect to a lan port and ignore the wan port they should also have asked you to turn off DHCP in the second router (where you do not use the wan port) and allow the first to do all the dynamic network address assignments. In this case you could have two DHCP servers on the network competing to assign possibly the same network addresses -- if they have overlapping ranges duplicate addresses could be assigned resulting in device connection issues for those with duplicate addresses. Even in this case you may need to assure the gateway addresses are unique on the network ie of both routers are addressed as 192.168.0.1 the second where the WAN is not used could become 192.168.0.2 (where that address is not in the active DHCP server's assignment range) or 192.168.2.0 (note the DHCP server had better be off or else the empty wan port 192.168.2.0 could become the "gateway" address of attached PCs and since there is no connection there will be no access to the internet.

I hope this helps

It is quite likely either solution could work if all the proper changes were made.

SOURCE: Connecting a netgear wireless router to a 2wire

before you connect the netgear router to your 2wire modem, you have to get the modem configured first. you did not include the firmware version of your modem (firmware version is found at the UI, go to gateway.2wire.net, click on the system icon.) for firmware version less than 3.7, go to homeportal/management, click on configure services, uncheck enable routing, then click on submit. for version 3.7 or higher, go to homeportal/management, click on configure under broadband link, put a dot in disable pvc search, set VPI to 0 & VCI to 35, the connection type box should be direct IP, then click on submit. then go to configure services, uncheck enable routing box, then click submit. you will notice the broadband link on the 2wire modem turn orange/amber, then you have successfully set the modem to bridged mode. that way you can now connect the router according to manufacturer's instructions (or just read the manual for the netgear router....)

SOURCE: connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop

hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.

How do i hook up my router?


There are several ways to do this, depending on how your network is configured.

Generally, if you have only one router - you connect the network jack of your cable modem or DSL modem to the WAN ("wide area network" or "internet") jack of the router with a CAT 5 network cable or jumper. Each computer's network jack would be connected to one of the router's (4) LAN ("local area network" or "home network") jacks labeled 1, 2, 3, & 4.

steve_con_12.jpg
In the picture above, the left most jack (WAN) of the router connects to the cable or DSL modem. The "LAN" jacks labeled "1, 2, 3 & 4" connect to each computer's network jack in your home.

The above would change if you are simply adding this router to extend an existing network. You'd likely be using this router as a switch, and leaving the routing duties to the main router. Over simplified, all the CAT 5 network cables would be connected to the 4 LAN jacks. There would be no connection to the router's WAN jack because the output of the first router provides only private IP addresses used in YOUR location. The internet IP address from your ISP is used only at the first router so that your entire home has the single IP address. The WAN jack is for internet addresses only - and the LAN jacks are for local / private addresses in your home only.

Have a look at the LinkSys web site for help configuring your particular model router, or reply with the model and version here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Wireless Network Password - Linksys


If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.

There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router

Reset your router:

First
  • Unplug your DSL/Cable modem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now


Second
  • On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
  • With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
  • Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot


almost done....
  • Unplug your Linksys router from power
  • Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
  • Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
  • Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
  • Plug your Linksys router back into power.


You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.

Setup/Secure a new router

Log into your router
  • Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
  • In the login fields (case sensitive):

Don't know how to hook up my router kids unpluged.


This is an easy fix. The back of the router has a single power jack and 5 jacks for network cables. 4 of the jacks are grouped together on one metal "plate" and are called LAN or "Local Area Network" jacks. The 5th jack is removed from the others slightly, and is by itself on its own metal "plate" closest to the antenna. This jack is called the WAN or "Wide Area Network" jack.

Disconnect the power cord if not already unplugged.

The WAN jack (closest to the antenna) should be connected to your DSL or cable modem output with a cable long enough to stretch between the two.

The LAN jacks should be connected to the computer(s) network jacks in your home that do not use a wireless connection.

Once everything is connected, turn on the DSL or cable modem (if not on already). After 30 seconds, power up the WGR614. After 30 seconds, you should see the power light on, the test light (a check mark) should be off, the wireless light (the antenna) may be on or off (depending if you configured it to be on before) and the internet light should be on or blinking (it's the icon next to the "1" light). If the internet light is off, check the WAN jack and cable back to the modem and make sure the modem is on.
After the internet light is on, turn on the wired computer(s). The 1, 2, 3, and 4 lights will flicker when computer(s) are on and connected to the 1, 2, 3 or 4 jack(s).


I hope this was helpful!

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection


No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

2 wire 2700 hg-b


The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.

CANNOT CONNECTTO BELKIN G+ MIMO


Hello, Connect a crossover ethernet cable from the computer to one of the LAN ports (usually 4 grouped together) on back of router. Connect a crossover ethernet cable from DSL modem to the WAN port on the back of router. Enter The default address for a Belkin Wireless, 192 168.2.1 into browser address window. Hit enter, it will then ask for a password only. For default leave it blank and hit enter. You can change it later. This lets you into the settings. Look for WAN settings and make sure the "Dynamic IP" is selected. Save this and refresh the link. Bring up a browser and check for internet connection. There's a number of changes that can be made here. Let me know what happens.

Pass word to secure the wireless


  1. Then u have to setup ur router first
  2. Turn off the power on your computer.
  3. Securely connect an end of an Ethernet cable to your computer, as shown.
  4. Securely connect the other end to any of the router's four LAN ports.
  5. Connect a second Ethernet cable from the router's single WAN port to the modem.
  6. Make sure the modem is connected to the jack or cable to the Internet that was set up by your ISP.
  7. Start your network in this order:
    1. Turn the modem power off.
    2. Turn the router power off.
    3. Turn the modem power back on. Wait two minutes until the lights are stable.
    4. Turn the router power back on. Wait one minute until the lights are stable.
    5. Turn the computer power back on.
  8. Open an Internet browser, and type http://192.168.0.1. If a "Configuration Assistant" appears immediately, then do not follow the rest of these instructions. Follow the Configuration Assistant instructions, instead. Once you are finished, test your Internet connection by browing online,
  9. Type admin for User Name, and password for Password. (Older routers use 1234 as the password.)
  10. Click OK. This logs you into the router.
  11. Click Setup Wizard, on the left of the router settings page and set up your router , click wireless tab and setup wireless security for your connection
  12. that would fix your problem..
