To connect to another persons network with this wireless router/card do i need to type in their IP address? i see something mentioned in the user manual about setting up IP addresses and other numbers/access codes. i can get online by choosing an available network but i loose it. is that common when you are on someone else's network and they log off or shut down? if so, then by having an IP address would that keep me online even thought they are not?

First you will need to find the local IP address of your router. It should look something like "192.168.0.1" You might be able to find it in either your router manual or on the bottom of the router itself. Then make sure your computer is connected to the router via wireless or ethernet cable. Next, open your browser and type in the IP address into the address bar. It should take you to a setup page that looks a lot like a website. Find the "wireless security" tab and select a security protocol. I recommend using either WPA or WPA2. Now you can set a password. Finally, there should be "save" button on the page. Click it, then wait for your router to reboot and your network is now secure.
First, make sure that that wireless card is configured to obtain an IP address automatically, unless you are at work and they give you a static IP address. You can check the configuration by going to the properties page of the wireless adapter. You get to this page through Control Panel > Network and Internet(or something similar depending on version of windows) Right click on the wireless connection and go to properties. Right click on TCP IPV 4 and the settings should be set to auto obtain ip address.
If you are using a static IP address, then you have to manually type in the ip address in the window above.
Try the following to renew the IP address.
Turn off the cable modem, the router and your computer. After 10 seconds, plug in the cable modem, after 20 seconds, plug in the router, after 20 seconds, turn on your computer and see if this helps.
Another option to renew the ip address is the following, Go to Start > Run and type "command" or "cmd" Then type "ipconfig /release" once this is done type "ipconfig /renew"
For that you need to enable DHCP in router. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on DHCP and enable then save settings and restart router then enable ip address get automatic in network adapter property.

Try turning off the wireless router fo 30 secs and then power it up again. When the LEDs light up, then boot up the HP laptop.
If this doesn't work, then check the laptop to see if the wireless router issued the HP laptop with an IP address. to do this - click on Start - Run - type cmd and press Enter. This will open a DOS command box, then type ipconfig and press Enter.
If the IP address returns 0.0.0.0 then the wireless router didn't issue the HP with an IP address and either the wireless router is faulty or the wireless card is faulty or it has lost its LAN configuration.
If the wireless router LEDs are all on, try connecting a LAN cable direct to the LAN port on the router and the laptop to see if it connects to the Internet. If it connects then install the latest wireless card driver and configure it with the wireless router's settings.
The wireless router and the wireless card on the computer needs to be configured. Follow these steps to configure the wireless setup. 1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable. 2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address. 3. Enter the router setup, login and password 4. Change the admin password 5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. 6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router. 8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings. 9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router. 10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router.
you need to go to your xbox settings and your network settings, find your network and put in the wep key for your router. If you don't know your wep key for your router, the easiest way to find it is to go on your computer, open a browser of some kind (e.g. internet explorer, firefox, safari etc.) and type in the ip address. The most standard ip address is 192.168.1.1 or something close to that. It should bring up the settings for your router and you can find the wep key usually under the wireless tab and then wireless security and your wep key should be right there! enter it into your xbox and have fun gaming. =)
hopefully you have'nt give the pc the same ip address as the other as it won't connect.
You will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your wireless network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.
Open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that never dial a connection is ticked or the option greyed out, close I.E. then open up again, click refresh and it should connect.
Is wireless connection enabled in your routers wireless settings and not encrypted in any way until a connection is established.
Make sure your router is set to enable DHCP, as this will give your wireless card an IP address automatically.
Ensure your card is set to obtain an ip address automatically.
If not look in your routers setup(normally by typing 192.168.2.1, in your internet browser) to see what IP address and DNS address it has given your connected pc (eg 192.168.2.3).
Then go into your cards properties and use the IP address 192.168.2.4, but the same DNS address(probably 255.255.255.0); then re start the wireless pc and the router if neccasary.
If you still get no connection, ensure wireless light is on; on your router, and you have no obstacles in the way of the signal.
If you are using WEP encryption it is normally a Shared key setting rather than an open key setting.
