Lost network when replacing wifi router


To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Tip

Multiple Computers on Same Network, Continual Internet Connection Dropout


After adding that second or third computer to your home network are you constantly fighting over who's using the internet connection? When your high schooler logs into his facebook chat, are you getting dropped off of your internet connection?
Or have you added a wifi router and is your whole network not staying connected like it did before you added your wifi?
These are common issues and we answer these questions often at FixYa.
Here is s a tip that will get you past the internet connection being dropped by someone else on your network attempting to log into the internet or help you get that wifi up and working with out all the cut outs and drop offs.

Follow this simple procedure and you'll be amazed!
1. Turn off everything. Turn off computers, routers, modem, printers... everything that's on your LAN (local area network) or home ethernet.
2. Turn on your wireless router next. With the ethernet cable connected to your wifi router to your modem and let it cycle up to running. If you aren't running wifi, do this with your main router. Make sure your modem and everything else is still off.
3. Turn on your modem (enet cable attached to wifi router or main router) and let the modem cycle up to running.

What you've done is allowed your wifi router to be established as the "MAC" Address for your modem. Modems look for a single MAC address. Once the router has this address, the router will maintain the connection with the modem and the internet, AND will assign MAC addresses to your computers, network printers, network routers etc, while still maintaining your connection to the internet.

4. Turn on all other peripherals, computers and network printers. At this point the order of power up isn't important, because your router will be assigning separate addresses to all the computers, etc on your network.

That's it! The secret's out! Just keep this handy... remember if you have power outage, you'll need to reboot in this order again... Happy Home Networking

I lost power and when I turned it back on there is no signal. I tried everything!


Things will depend on how the power went out or why. If it was a thunder storm you may have had a power surge as it went out.

You should try using a cable plugged into the port. The log on and check to see if the wifi is off. If the unit reset it self to factory the wifi is disabled. Hopefully that is all it is. If the uni is older the wifi section may have failed. Netgear is good stuff even the home grade units so they don;t die often unlike other brands with Link in the name ;-]

Unfortunately if you can't just turn the wifi back o it is time to replace it.

I have a new Kindle (not 3G). It recognizes the wireless network on the Llnksys WRT400, WPA2 security, but not the 15 character password. Another Kindle with 3g could not connect to the wireless network...


An important feature of SES (the 15 character password) is wireless security...if you are using wireless adapter and if you are not aware of the wireless settings of the router, at that point on the wireless adapter software you may find SES button... once you press that button, wireless security on the router would change to "WPA" and adapter will automatically pick up the "WPA" security from the router...
You cannot use SES and WPA2 at the same time. SES will only activate once you push the SES button on the adapter or sometime in the router assuming you dont know the WPA2 security, but if you do know the WPA2 no need to use SES (15 character password).

Im trying to set up the wireless router and Ive installed the modem, and double checked all the connections. I ran the installation disc for the router and it appears everything is good up to the point...


Connecting to the Internet using a router
  1. Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.
  2. Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
  3. Power down your computer(s).
  4. Plug the power in to your router.
  5. Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet". Turn on your Modem.
  6. Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.

  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1, and press Enter on your keyboard.
  9. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  10. To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.

  11. If this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the router's wireless channel and SSID for a description of this process.
  12. Plug the power back into your Internet modem.
  13. Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.
  14. Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.

I bought a Belkin wireless router. I went thru the setup but am not sure I completed it and have not been able to figure out how to start over however my pc is recognizibg the router but will not connect...


1. A solid amber light means that either you have lost connectivity with the ISP or you have a power supply malfunction. Contact the Internet Service Provider to check your line connectivity to your premise.
2. There is a caption under the light that will tell you which it is .
If a cable it will say "link". If DSL it will be "dsl" .
Your power will be "pwr" or Power and it will be green

The ''wireless'' light on my wireless router is flashing amber


What have you tried so far?
1. You can unplug the power cord of your modem on the back of the modem.
2. Unplug the power cord on the back of your router
3. Unplug the ethernet cable at the back of your modem
4. Unplug all the ethernet cable at the back of your router
5. Wait for 2 minutes then plug the power cord back into your modem and the ethernet cable
6. Wait for 2 minutes again then plug the power cord back into your router and the ethernet cable
7. Try to reconnect
(Note: Resetting your router will restore to factory default)
8. If not successful, try resetting the router. While the power cord is plugged at the back of your router press the reset button for 15 seconds, unplug the power cord of your router and press the reset button again for 15 seconds then plug the power cord back into your router and press the reset button for 15 seconds. (after resetting reconfigure your router) Try to connect.

9. If not successful, try to upgrade the firmware

Hi - My 2wire 1701 gateway has steady green power light and steady local network light but the broadband link light is steady amber. My computer is receiving the WiFi signal but I cannot get any internet...


The broadband link light tells you the status of the connection between the modem and the broadband servers in your area. Green means everything is A-Ok while amber means your modem is not picking up a broadband signal.

Try turning the modem off and on and also make sure the cables are secure while you're at it. If the broadband light is still amber, the only thing you could do next is to call your internet service provider.
