Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I have a Linksys SRX200 router that has problems with the wireless. A wired connection works fine (and connects through my satellite to the Internet). However, the wireless connection is undetected by any of my notebook PCs (several different machines). Once in a while, the wireless seems to come up, but it only stays up for a minute or two and then goes back down. I've rebooted the router to factory defaults, but that didn't help any.

Yes, it did work before. In fact, it was working during the day, but then when I tried to use it in the evening it started failing. I tried talking with someone at Linksys, to no avail. Although I did say it had been working, he didn't seem to get that. The idea that it might be the antennas seems much more reasonable that the solutions he was suggesting (which included trying various things on the laptops that used to work with it).

I needed to have something working, so I ended up purchasing a different router for now. Perhaps at some point I can try switching it to the G setting (although one of my PCs only has a B card). For now, I'll use the new router, which works fine.

Did it work before? There may be a problem with the antennas, and is there any difference changing the band from B to G?

I can't go wireless with my linksys router, meanwhile I install everything right as prescribe and I am taking internet via the wired connected to the router


Which software are you using to control your wireless card?  Are you allowing Windows to manage it, or something else?  You may need to disable your wired connection to allow the wireless connection to work.

Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

I have a computer hooked up to bell sympatico. How do I connect my new compaq to it? Thanks


If you have only a DSL or Cable modem, that doesn't have an integrated Router, then you'll need to get a router to use more than one computer. The broadband modem, will connect to the uplink port of the router, and give you usually 4 wired ports and up to 50 wireless connections.

Here is an example from linksys

Your router should just be that, a router. Your connection is probably like fibernet the modem is actually on the outside of the house. This may help or may not but I have a linksys wired router that works very well but you have to go to their website in order to set up the router. You may need to look through your papers and find the web address to connect to the right site.

Hi Ed, if your using windows you can open network connections & run network setup wizard. Follow the instruction for a home network for the wireless PC's & notebooks. Once the network is setup for all PC's than you can install the printer cd software in the PC's that you want to access the printer. Each PC & notebook will have access to the printer through the network.
The PC that that is connected to the printer needs to be shared.
Open printers and Faxes. Right click once on the printer & left click sharing. Agai follow the instructions.
Lastly,I strongly suggest you setup security for your wireless. If you do not anyone close can tap into your network connection. Follow linksys instruction to setup security. If you run into a problem you can call linksys for free advise from a pro. Their number is listed in the manual.
