Question about ASUS (WL-167G) 802.11g/b (wl167g) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

I have a router ASUS wl-520GC working fine since about 2 years. I connect a laptop toshiba running vista without any issue since a long time. I just reinstall vista after formatting my laptop. DHCP is enabled on therouter and network cards of my laptop are configured to obtain automatically an IP address. When I try a wired connection, it's working and I get an IP 192.168.1.2. But if i try a wireless connection, I see by typing ipconfig in a dos prompt something like: autoconfiguration IP 169.254.X.X So I don't retrieve an IP address from the DHCP server. Does somebody can help me ? What's wrong ? Your help should be appreciate. Best regards JMC

I cannot reconnect with my ASUS WL-520GC Router after blocking a mac address. While it was reconfiguring the new setting the connection was disconnected before it was finished. Now it has stopped work


You will need to do a "hard reset" which usually requires you to hold in the reset button (30 sec) as you turn on the device.

They always warn against changing settings over the wireless for exactly this reason.

Unable to input a HYPHEN in portrange


With this particular router you will need to treat the port range field as the port field. You will just have to forward single ports at a time. Which will be fine. In case you need more reference see the link below.

Cloud storage and file storage - DataAlign In vanilla terms, a backup or the process of backing up, refers to the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. The simplest definition of a computer backup is an exact copy. In the case of computer files, we are referring to copies of the original files that you have on your laptop, desktop, or external drive. Creating a backup of original content means having that data saved in two places, but it's also important to make sure that those two places aren't on the same type of device. For example, if you have 3 copies of a working document on your computer, if your computer crashes, you will still lose all three. This makes the backup method and medium, an important thing to consider for your backup strategy. With the kind of Online Cloud Backup technology being used these days, it is extremely important to back up your files. Ideally, we store data files, movies, music, photos and our official documents on the computer. With the ever-changing technology, desktops and laptops have reduced in cost, and the quantum of storage inside them has surged considerably over the last few years. Unfortunately, storing all your data in only one place is risky. Accidental deletion, theft, computer loss, natural disaster is just some of the reasons that could cost you heavily as you stand out the chance to lose the data you've spent so long generating and collecting. Having an excellent backup strategy Computer Data Backup is the only way to battle the unexpected loss of data. There is more than one way to back up your computers, and using multiple forms of backup will minimize the risk of losing your valuable files. This is where, the PC Backup solution from DataAlign stands out of the rest and gives a one stop solution for Business Server Data Backup up your computer's data on the secure cloud servers.
