Hi Heathcass,

Ok, generally, you must have the the modem connected to the wireless router throught the port marked WAN and the the computer that is directly connected to the router (if options like that are available), though the lan port.

That said, there could be a few reasons for your computer not being able to connect to the wireless router. Please ensure that:

  • Your computer has a wireless adaptor and that that proper drivers and software for the computer using the wireless adaptor have been loaded into the system.
  • The physical cabling are all intact and firmly connected.
  • You are able to "see" the access point by ensuring that the software loaded into the computer to be connected wirelessly says "you are now conencted to the access point and the internet"
If all these are up and running, there should not be ny problems. However, if you do face problems, try to identify the arena of error by doing a ping test. Follow these steps:

  • Go to Start>Accessories>Command Prompt and open program
  • Type ping www.yahoo.com -t This is done to ensure that there is a connection to the internet.
  • If you ger a respond that says "unable to send ping packets" or something like that, with a failure report of "request time out", you might need to reset the the WAP or modem by powering it off and on.
  • re run the ping test to see if connection is established.
whilst these are some simple troubleshooting steps, please do not hesitate to revert back to me if you should find there should be any trouble. Also, please dont forget to rate this solution if it has helped you in any way. Thank you.

From the information you have provided, the wireless router is most likely at fault.

Considering that this wireless router appears to be quite old (5+ years) and only provides 802.11b, I would suggest upgrading to a modern wireless router, which will provide you with better wireless security, and have faster wireless 802.11g and 802.11n. You can purchase a new router starting at around $30-50 USD at most big box stores.

In the mean time, you can unplug your old wireless router from power, wait 15-30 seconds, then plug it back into power and make sure it's turned on. Give it a few minutes after that and try your computer with it. If there is nothing physically wrong with your wireless router, this will likely correct the issue you're experiencing.

Wireless broadcast is usually the first thing to go when a router is failing. How old is your router? Try these steps:
Turn off computer
Remove power from router
Remove power from modem
Wait 2 minutes
Restore power to modem
Wait for modem to boot up and gain all signals
Restore power to router
Wait for router to completely powerup
Watch for wireless indicator light
Boot up computer, verify your wireless network is broadcasting
Connect

If you still can not get the wireless network to access the internet, try connecting your computer with an ethernet cable. If everything connects fine and you can access the web, it might be that your router is going bad and needs replacing.

Try running the ethernet cable from the modem to port #2 on your router. Then run the second cable from port#3 on the router to your computer. This effectively uses the router as a pass-thru and bypasses all its functions. If you are able to access the internet this way, you need to replace the router.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

If the wireless internet works, the desktop doesn't


Check that the cable-modem (or the DSL-modem) is connected to the 'WAN' port on the router -- there is only one 'WAN' port.

Check that one of the 4 (or 5?) 'LAN' ports on the router is connected to the network-adapter on your computer.

Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer, and it should regain Internet access, for both "wired" and "wireless" devices.

Wireless connection problem


Hello:

Ok...I am a bit confused. You must have a modem to connect to the internet...whether you are broadband (cable/DSL/wireless), Dial-up or T-1 or higher (TSU/DSU).

This is how it should run once you are sure you have the modem...

Modem....to router...pc to router. If you have no router...then plug ethernet cable from your modem to your NIC card on PC.

You will have to make sure your network card is working (check for flashing green light and one solid green. Then you can goto COntrol panel and run the wizard to connect to the internet...it should work.

What kind of router do you have? Also, what is the model number of your modem?

Let me know if I can help further.

Good luck my friend.

Wireless configuration


What you will need: Wireless router and a wireless adapter connected to your PC. This is assuming you have a broadband internet connection. Install the wireless router by taking the ethernet cable out of the back of your computer and placing it in the WAN or internet port in the back of your router. Install the wireless adapter inside your PC. Unplug your modem for a minute or so. Then plug in your modem and your router, then turn on your PC. If you are running XP, it should see a list of wireless access points you can access. Select the one for your router (should be the strongest) and hit connect. This will connect you to the wireless router and the internet. Note this solution assumes the following: You have a high speed internet connection, your ISP's modem is connected to your computer via an ethernet cable, and you are running windows XP.
