Question about Westell Wirespeed VersaLink (A99-327W11-00) Router (A99327W1100)

Connecting to a macbook

I am using mac filtering and no other security. I can connect to the internet wirelessly with the laptop with no problem. I can also connect with other devices (other laptop, nintendo, etc.). However, I can't connect with the apple macbook. It asks for a password. I have no security, but I tried the default password for the router as well as the password that I use. Did not work. Can you help?

    Hi



    I had done that already. The MacBook thinks there is a password using WEP security. I tried no password as well as the router's password (default and new) with no results. Can you help?



    Thank you

Hi.

This is all what you just need to do. You need to get you mac address first and edit it using a computer that is currently connect to your router as you are using Mac filtering. To check your mac address :

To find the serial number located on the computer If the MacBook is not turned on, you can open the computer's battery bay to find the serial number.
The MacBook serial number and Ethernet ID (also called a MAC address) are located on the bottom of the computer, underneath the battery, in the battery bay.

Why won't my laptop connect wirelessly with my desktop?


If the network is now connected but you can't get on the Internet, then you need to check your internet setting in the Web browser. The web browser could be set up for modem, proxy, etc. You also have to make sure you are connecting to the wireless router, and not just creating a personal network to your other computer.

1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop/desktop/MAC about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

This is a confusing report. If you are successfully connecting two other computers to the router using the original router password, why can't you connect your MacBook Pro to the router using the same password? Or is it that the other two computers "know" the original password but you don't?
If one of the other two computers is a Mac, use the Keychain Access utility to look up the stored password for the router.
If not, use one of the other two computers to access the router's configuration screens directly and obtain the password that way.

My laptop could not acess the internet


It may because you have a mac filter on. If so you can correct this by connecting to the router then in a Internet explorer type 192.168.1.1 and you should have a configure screen available then either disable the mac filter or enter the other mac adresses. Good Luck

Airport says full connection to wireless router, not online tho


if it says you have a good connection, it means that you are connected to the router, though the router might not be connected to the internet. try powering off/on the router (leave off for 10sec.) to see if that corrects the internet connection issue.

Also, when it says that the connection is good, open a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or 10.10.0.0 into the address bar (you can find this address by going to Network properties and looking at the Wireless settings. It should say "gateway" or "router". If you put that address in the browser it will pop up with the Netgear settings page if you have a good connection to the router. If so, then it's a problem with your router connecting to the internet and you might have to call your ISP/cable/phone company to get it fixed.

My internet works on my main computer but my secound computer which is wirelessly connect does not work.


Have you tried connecting the 2nd computer wihtout any security first to make sure it works like that? Just have it set up for a minute or so to test. Once that's done, try using the more secure WEP or WPA settings. Make sure the MAC Filtering is not on for this as well as it will not let anything work unless the MAC exactly maches. There are lots of nitpicky settings on the security side of the wireless router. Try to follow the directions that came with the router. Also, if the laptop came with software for the wireless connection, try to use that and don't let Windows handle the wireless connection. I've had better results not letting Windows configure it.
