Why is My HP printer not connecting to Wi-fi?


You sound as though you wish the printer to directly connect to the laptop via wi-fi. This is not usually the case in home networks. Most home networks use a wi-fi router to link all wi-fi components. This is because your laptop is not capable of handling the routing duties itself, nor is the printer (normally). The wi-fi router assigns the IP addresses that the devices use to communicate to the router and each other. That said, IF you ARE using a router, perhaps you are not entering the security code that the router needs to allow the device to attach to the network. If you are NOT using a router, then you still MIGHT be able to use the printer with the laptop if it has a "direct connect" capability. You would need to look at the printer documentation and instructions on how to set it up. Unfortunately, wi-fi isn't as simple as just turning it on an waiting for a connection to take place.

How did you connect the computer to the router. If you are using a DSL modem it will have a DHCP server in it that is allocating IP addresses across your network. If you added the router to the computer via a hub or network switch what is the computers ip .
address. Remove the WI FI router - turn off P.C and then Go to cmd or dos prompt if windows based system and type in ipconfig and press enter to see if ip addresses are 10.0.0.2 if they are your dlink router uses 192.168.0.1 so you need to make the dlink router ip addressand subnet setting to match the Modem ip addresses of the DHCP server. Change the ip address of the dlink router to be 10.0.0.2 and change the modem to allocate DHCP IP addresses from 10.0.0.10 to 10.0.0.255. Only do this if IP addresses are 10,0,0,1 to 10.0.0.,254 on the desktop p.c with the dsl or cable modem connected.without the router being involved. (you may need to ask the ISP what the user name and password is of the modem and it should be ip address xx.xx.xx.1 so type this into a browser to change the modem settings. 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.1 just remember if the modem is 192.168.0.1 so is the Wi router from d-link and you will have an ip clash problem)
. How do you do this by ethernet connection from only the desktop directly with only the Wi FI . router. Go to a internet browser and type in the URL 192.168.0.1 and then change the router ip address to match what the DSL modem DHCP issues..
Page 14 of Router instructions see http://files.dlink.com.au/Products/DIR-615/Manuals/DIR-615_C2_Manual_v3.10.pdf
in the manual it states to use a direct ethernet connection for the setup program but you need to be connected to the internet for it to work but if the IP addresses are wrong or clashing will have no internet. You also want to set the modem as the DCHP server and disable the DHCP server in the set up of the wi fi tand set the WI FI router default gateway as the ip address of the Modem. if any DHCP server options in the WI FI router sert to the modem ip address. .

Connect to ipad


You don't assign an IP address to your iPad, it has one assigned to it by your router.

Open the Settings app on your iPad. Make sure Airplane Mode is OFF. Tap Wi-Fi. Make sure the Wi-Fi switch is ON, Ask to Join Networks is ON. Your in-home wi-fi network should be visible in the list titled Choose a Network.... Tap its name and provide the network password required by your router.

If you don't see your local router listed, it may not be properly configured.

Pls try this following below and just cool down and read through,

Physical causes and What to Do...
  • Network card could be faulty or malfunctioning, or the port on the card itself. Make sure lights show on the card and if they don't, replace with another one that works.
  • Check that your router or the server is turned on so that the laptop can acquire a valid IP address.
  • Double check to make sure the wireless card on the laptop is turned on. Do not assume it is on by default, do it yourself.

Logical or Software causes and solutions

Many of us are online buyers. Items sold on the internet, especially used items, are not in their default settings. Previous owners do not always reset them before sale, and this causes a lot of issues and unwanted beheaviours. Below are some of the common settings found on Routers:
  • ISP user name and password. If you want to connect to the internet check with your ISP to get your own User name and password, if not ignore this step.
  • Looking at the security options, make sure:
    • MAC address Filtering is not enable. If it is, remove all the MAC addresses on the MAC address table, and enter your Laptop's network card MAC address. With MAC Filtering On, do not forget to enter the MAC addresses of all you wireless devices on to its table.
    • Wireless key settings. Disable the wireless key settings and configure it to meet your requirements.



  • A Laptop to Laptop connection, please make sure the wireless settings on both laptops are the same.
  • Inconsistent wireless Keys. The key on the laptop has to match the one configured on the router.
  • Drivers out of date, update your wireless adapter drivers or your router firmware by checking the manufacturer web site.
  • Wireless not enable on the router. If wireless is not enable on the router, there is no Wi-Fi signal at all. some Router would have wireless turned off by default, and it is the administrator decision to use it or not.
  • DHCP Server misconfiguration. Make sure the DHCP (Dynamic Hosts Configuration) server is properly configured:
    • Enough IP address lease for your network devices
    • The server itself is not down

  • Some simple troubleshooting methods are:
    • Repair the connection. On Windows, click start - Control panel and then Network connections; chose the right connection icon, right then select repair. Windows will, temporarily, disable and re-enable your network adapter to attempt a connection.
    • Reset the IP stack. Click start then Run. At the command prompt type "command" or cmd for short, you are then presented with the command prompt window. Type "netsh int ip reset resetlog", and then restart your Laptop. This applies to desktop computers as well.
    • Reset the router to its factory default. Most routers we use at home are fitted with a reset button, by pressing and hold it for few seconds will bring the router to its factory default. This method solves a lot of the issues mentioned earlier, in one go.

    Resolution If you know there is a nearby Wi-Fi network, but you are unable to locate it on the Settings > Wi-Fi screen:
    • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
    • If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
    • Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
      • Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
    After joining a Wi-Fi network, if you notice the signal strength is low or intermittent
    • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
    • Check for any sources of potential interference.
    • Remove any cases or attachments on your device that could interfere with a Wi-Fi signal.
    If you are unable to access the Internet while connected
    • If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
    • If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
    • Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
      • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
      • Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap ts1398_2.jpg
        blank.gif
    • You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
    • Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
    • Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
    • Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
    If you are still unable to join a Wi-Fi network, or are unable to access the Internet while connected, try the following
    • Restart the device
      • Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
    • Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
    • iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
    Additional Information If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
    • Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
    • Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
    • If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
    • Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
    • Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.

    Using Nintendo Wireless Adapter - No Connection Anymore


    If available networks are found, it means that the wireless adapter is working just fine. In case of Wi-Fi, the device has to acquire an IP address from the wireless router and the mutual communication is not taking place. This has something to do with the wireless router. Check for any kind of security filtering like MAC address filtering or lower down the encryption technique to 64-bit WEP. Try connecting to even an unsecured network, then check for the automatically acquired IP address. It should never be starting with 169.254.xx.xx (Invalid)
    If you have other wireless computers going online in the same network, without security and filtering, then it means that your DS Lite is not acquiring an IP address. In that critical case, you may have to statically or manually assign an IP address in the range of the router.
    And lastly, as you said LAN connection is active, it would be because it doesn't face any hardships while connecting!

    Thanks..
    Do get back if you need further clarifications.

    Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network


    Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

    http://www.behardware.com/articles/614-2/wi-fi-mimo.html

    Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
    Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

    As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

    "acquiring network address" problem


    The password might have been changed that's why you keep getting "acquiring network address", the password is incorrect. What you can do is just reset the router. There's a reset button at the back of it, press and hold it down for 10 seconds then release, unplug the power now for 10 seconds then plug it back in. That will disable the wireless password, just re-enable it.
