Are you tryiing to connect to your wireless router?
If so, you can configure your wireless connection to automatically go to your connection and you can kick out your neighbors, if it is already automatically connecting.

The Modem and wireless combo on your printer will show in your device manager. Your wireless printer will most likely show as a 1284 IEEE printer

The modem will show up under modems.

If you need further info, or if I am not understanding your question I am sorry, I do hope this helped some.

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

My supposed broadband doesn't work. Resetting it doesn't work. Can't connect to a CPU, Xbox, iPhone, or anything. Just shows up as a signal and goes away when selected? They will not exchange or retur


What you have is the equivalent of a wireless modem and wifi hotspot combined. You still have to go thru a setup procedure with each device you want to connect to it. It should have come with a usb cable that will let you connect the wireless modem directly into the usb port of your computer. This way you can verify that the wireless modem is working and that you can use it to connect to the internet. Once you get it to connect thru your computer then the rest should be fairly simple. Follow the set up instructions that should have come with it to set up wifi connects between each device and the modem. Usually you will be required to use a password that comes with the modem as you do the setup for each device. If you still don't have any luck then try taking it back to the Cricket store and have then try to connect to it thru wifi from one of their cell phone. They should also be able to walk you thru the setup procedure.

Connecting Multiple Computers
thru a router to internet






Tips on choosing the right network can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/install.mspx





Since you said there are other computer in the house I assume they will all
go thru the router. I also assume you are using ethernet to connect the new
computer so it will be a "wired" connection. A rounter can also have wireless
connections if the other computers have wireless internet on the other
computers.



To connect more than one computer to the Internet, you need a router.
A router allows you to connect several computers to each other and to the
Internet. The router sits between your computers and the modem provided by your
ISP. You connect the router to the modem, and then connect all your computers to
the router.

To connect a router and multiple computers to the
Internet


Contact an Internet service provider (ISP) and have them configure
an Internet connection to your home. If possible, have the ISP place the modem
in the room with your primary computer.



Connect your router to your modem in one of the two following
ways:

If you currently have a computer connected directly to your
modem:
Unplug the network cable from the back of your computer, and
plug it into the port labeled Internet, WAN,
or WLAN on the back of your router.



If you don't currently have your computer connected to the
Internet:
Plug one end of a network cable (included with your router)
into your modem, and the other end of the network cable into the
Internet, WAN, or WLAN port
on your router.

Plug in your router. After a minute or two, the Internet, WAN, or WLAN light
on your router should light up, indicating that it has successfully connected to
your modem.

Determine whether your computer has a network adapter, and add one if
necessary. Instructions to determine if you have a network adaptor or to install
a Network adaptor can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/netadapter.mspx



Shut down your computer by clicking Start and then clicking
Turn Off Computer. Then click Turn Off.



Connect the network cable to your computer's network adapter.



68573-connect-computer-small.jpg


Connect the other end of the network cable to your network equipment.



68573-connect-to-router-small.jpg


Start your computer and log on to Windows. Windows automatically detects that
you are connected to the Internet.

Repeat steps 6, 7, and 8 for each one of your computers. If you have a
computer in a different room you can find instructions at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wired.m

WAN connection problems with Linksys WRT160N


1.) Have you setup the router for use on cable modem?

2.) Run Your Setup utility that came on the CD for the router. And select Dynamic under the WAN settings unless you have a static IP address.

3.) If you do not have the CD to access the setup use IE Browser type 192.168.1.1. Select WAN settings and then Dynamic from the list.
4.) Make sure your computers are using the router and not the cable modem. Reboot your PC's and verify they work if they don't open the internet connections and view the gateway is 192.168.1.1?

Here is a link to the manual

Internet connection


Ok I have done it a little different sometimes... try this approach... First connect up the DSL Modem to the PC via Ethernet.. Configure the modem from the PC using the Connect to the Internet Wizard... enter all ya ISP details Logon, Password etc. Once this is going OK.. Disconnect the Modem... and then connect it up to the "Router" using the "Uplink" port and when connect ya Modem to the router... then connect another Ethernet cable from Router to same port on ya PC. Then simply use the network setup Wizard to set up an Internet Connection and connect up via ya router thru ya modem... generally works for me....
