Question about 3Com OfficeConnect Router

1 Answer

Will sync but online LED won't work

I can get on the internet if hardwired but not through the wireless. I've amended the settings on the network (original wireless network got deleted on reset) eg added a wep key to ensure secure and added internet settings eg user name,password etc but ISP doesn't have a static IP so left this blank but it just won't work. Everyother light is on on the router execpt the online LED. Really not technical but any advice greatly appreciated

4 Select the connection type from the Connect Type drop-down menu. ? Always Connected means that Internet connection to your ISP is always on. ? Auto - Triggered by Traffic means your Router will automatically connect to your ISP every time a PC needs to access the Internet. ? Manual - Start in Disconnected means that after re-booting the Router, the Internet connection will need to be re-established manually by the user. ? Manual - Start in Connected means that after re-booting the Router, it will automatically establish a connection to your ISP.
(from http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c02582095-1.pdf )

this sounds like Manual - Start in connected mode will get the ip address and dns settings automatically from the ISP

using adsl on phone line then use pppoe for the protocol

DCHP server has to be set up also and on
The DCHP server ip address range is 192.168.1.20 to 192.168.1.254 with subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and default gateway is 192.168.1.1

pppoe protocol allows the ADSL to connect many computers on the one isp global ip address allocated to your line via using different port numbers to translate the computers internal ip address on the dhcp server through the router.

The last thing you want to do is get rid of the password - operating an unsecured WiFi network can be very hazardous to your privacy & finances! You need to set the WEP password in the PC's. If you install the 3Com router software and use that to set things up, it will guide you through doing the job.

Also, it's better to use WPA encryption rather than WEP which is now regarded as insecure and little better than nothing at all. If you can get it working OK on WEP, it'd be easy enough to change it to WPA in the router & then change the setup on the PC's.

Unless you live in the back of beyond, this really is necessary I'm afraid :{

SOURCE: i dont know how to set up a password to secure my wireless 3com

Hi, start internet explorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press enter
in the new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default)
click wireless settings on the left hand side of the screen, click encryption, select wpa-psk from the drop down boxwhere it says pre-shared key, type in a MEMORABLE password and then click apply. Now you will lose your wireless signal. Panic ye not! Click on the smatt TV in the lower right hand side of the screen (this is called the sys-tray) you will now see that the wireless icon which looks a bit like a telly eith 3 yellow arcs coming out of it's right hand side has a red cross on it. Click it once, click view wireless networks and then on the new screen click refresh network list. You will after a few seconds see your network -click on it and then on connect. A new box will come up asking you for the networe key aka password. Enter the memorable password you have just forgotten in the upper and lower boxes and press enter. Et voila! you now have an encrypted wireless network and you can only get onto it if you know the memorable password! Have fun!

I have a hp pavilion a1140n and i cant set up wireless internet in my house what do i do


To have wireless internet you would need a (cable or DSL modem depending upon your ISP. A wireless router (doesn't matter which brand) Also for a desktop computer you will need to buy and install a wireless NIC (network interface card) as desktops almost never come with one, only a hardwired NIC (cabled)

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Unable to connect to the internet using a linksys wireless adapter. Connects to the router but can't find the internet.


Isolate the issue by directly connecting the PC to the router via ethernet cable (if possible).

If you were able to get online while hardwired connected to the router, then check the IP address of the wireless network connection, check the wireless security if the network key matches.

If you cannot get online while hardwired to the router, then directly connect the computer to the modem.

If you were able to get online while directly connected to the modem, then the problem is the internet settings on the router. Check the WAN configuration, such as DHCP or PPPoE.

If you cannot get online when directly connected to the modem, then you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider.

Can't connect to internet if it is not synced to computer....help please


This unit works on WiFi so will only connect to the internet when in close range to a wireless router. Make sure your wireless card is connected properly and is actually sending out a signal. Go to "control pannel" then "network connections" and see if the connection is good. You can reconfigure your wireless network by going to "control panel" then "wireless network setup wizard" Good luck!

After retting my D-Link Router, my internet has stopped working.


This is a very common problem. When you hit that reset button it erases the setting in the router. Some internet service provdier have DHCP built in to the modem so you have to unplug the modem and router and plug them both in at about the same time, this will usually re sync the two. you should now have internet connection. There are some internet service providers that use PPPoE which is basically Username and Password.

You set this up by logging intoyour router main page and setting it to PPPoE. Once set, there should be a box for Username, this is usually your email address that is associated with your ISP. Enter in the password and click apply.

I tried to reset my security password and now it won't work.


Make sure you have the physical connection connected properly.

-Modem should be connected to the Internet/WAN port of the router.
-Your laptop must be connected to port 1 of the router as well.
-Make sure you can go online hardwired to the router.

Then configure the wireless settings of the router by accessing the router setup page http://192.168.2.1, change the wireless settings.

Connection problems


If Internet sharing is set up correctly one pc will be the one that connects directly to internet, the other will connect through a gateway or other device connected to your network. Check they have'nt both got the same IP address. Is this related to last problem, did you get the wireless card working wirelessly online?
