How do I run vizio xwr100 router quick start app


If wireless access to the IP address doesn't work, try connecting an ethernet cable DIRECTLY between the router and the PC to log into the router's settings. Also, some routers have a 192.168.2.1 address rather than the default 1.1. The user manual is within the HELP option of the Settings screen and can be downloaded from there. Sorry Joe Diaz, but your supposed "solution" is quite ignorant since the user guide does have these instructions.

Have you tried to reset router. It has to be done in order.
1. unplug router
2. unplug modem
3. shut down computer and restart after waiting 1 min
4. after restarting computer plug power back into modem and wait for all the lights to start blinking
5. after the modem is working plug power back to router and plug in the computer with ethernet cable and make sure you have internet,
6. try to link up with wireless,
If this does not work you will have to setup the router for wireless if it is att wireless you will have to call them to give you the password to set it up.

I have a desktop and a laptop (new for xmas) and I want to set up the laptop to the wireless-N Router Model WRT160N. I am set up with internet through a bundle system through our television. Do I plug the...


first a couple of things.
if your router has wireless support your laptop (if new) should have a wireless adapter built in, so basically your destop computer can be wirely plugged into the router and your laptop shoud "connect wirelessly" to your adapter
so this is how your set up should look like

desktop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ----- wire----- desktop

laptop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ))wireless))) laptop

you need read up a bit, here are some links that will have info you need

manual for wireless configuration (select the proper revision for your router and check user manual)

configure wireless network for vista


read up and if you have any questions post back.

hope that helps.

Changed internet companies now router won't work


I'm sorry but I find your post a bit confusing. Do either of the computers get on the internet?
Changing internet providers is something done INSIDE the router. The cables are irrelevant.

Can't connect to my wireless.


You don't have a domain at home. When are you being asked this, when you log in to the computer or when you log in to the Dlink?
If it is in the Wireless settings, ignore it.
If you did have a domain setting, it would be visible by right-clicking on My Computer and looking at Properties, Computer Name.you should find it at the bottom right of the window.

Router won't log into it's IP address online


It appears to me that you have everything plugged into the desktop PC. This is not the way that it should be done. Plug the cable modem into the wireless router via the Internet/WAN port. Plug your desktop PC into one of the ports numbered 1-4. Now connect to the router via the wireless connection for the router and you should be able to now connect to the internet with your laptop.
If it still does not work, power down everything in this order: Laptop, Desktop, Router, Cable Modem. Bring everthing up in the reverse order (Cable Modem, Router, Desktop, Laptop) waiting for each device to stablize before moving to the next.
Once you get everything working, turn on your wireless security (WPA not WEP) asap to keep your computers and surfing safe, and to keep intruders off your network.

if we're working with laptop, make sure that the wireless switch of your laptop is on, i know its a simple troubleshooting step but most of the time this is being ignored. (the wireless switch of laptop turns off automatically to save energy if you are using battery) if we're working with a desktop which has a wireless adapter, make sure that you installed it completely and properly. check the device manager and check if its enabled. if this is done properly, the wireless light on the modem is lit every time you're gonna try to connect wirelessly. if your computer will ask you to enter the wireless passphrase or password, look at the bottom of your modem, it should have a 10-digit code which is enclosed with a bracket. use it as your wireless password.to know the network name, look at the SN on your modem. get the last 3 numbers. you will have 2Wirexxx as your network name.

so there it is, hope this helps.

My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!


it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
