Attach an ethernet cable from your wireless router to an adapter that has a phone line in-take. Plug a phone cord into the adapter and into a wall phone jack. Go to your control panel and click network and shareing center. Click manage network connections. Right click your wireless network card and click enable. Note: if when you right click, it has an option to "disable", your wireless network card is already enabled, dont do anything. Now click connect to a network. Your wireless connection should automatically come up. Click it and click connect. Create a connection name. Click Next. Create a passphrase. You're all set

Hi licking;
what type of wireless router are you using? a linksys? or a dlink?
do you have color coded cables?

try this:
from your modem(the box given to you by your isp), connect a cable from your modem LAN port to the WAN port of your wireless router.

If your going to connect a pc wired to your wireless router, you can connect a cable from your wireless router LAN port to your lan card of your PC.

give more details and ill be happy to help you. :)

My computer is not connecting to my Dynex wireless router. I've called my locate cable subscriber and they told me that it's a router problem. I've disconnected the router several times and it shows that...


First off, verify that you can connect to your cable modem directly. After that, hook up your Dynex wireless router and reboot your cable modem. After this, directly connect your computer to the Dynex router (using a cable). If you cannot get an Internet connection, then there is some issue with your Dynex router configuration. It's possible that there might be an IP address conflict with the cable modem. It would be best to contact support for configuring the Dynex.

If you can connect to the Internet with your computer connected directly to the Dynex router, then there must be some router configuration problem affecting your ability to connect wirelessly. You'll have to check the configuration--might be a good idea to completely reset the router and start over. If that doesn't help, you should contact Dynex customer support, as each router has its own configuration specifics. Good luck.

How do you hook up the wireless router


First configure your router with below method. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or 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. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi .Then save settings and restart router. Then connect internet cable from service provider to your router's WAN port.If you want wired internet then connect lan cable from computer to router's lan port. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Can not get it hooked up and working.


The G Wireless Router is the central connection point of your wireless network. Position your Belkin Router in between your cable/DSL modem and your computer to start sharing your broadband Internet access. It is pretty straight forward. you may learn wap or wep (encryption).
Now, I recommend that you contact your ISP (internet SERVICE provider) should you have any problems and they will talk you through every step. Or may take over you machine and do it for you. Hey you are paying for the service, you might as well use it. (verizon and comcast are really helpful, usually.)
This should do it for you my friend, good luck and please leave a rating. thank you kindly

Hi,could some one walk me through setting up my Billion modem wirelessly to my Dell Desk top running XP home. I get confused with firewalls,LAN settings etc Ethernet cable is being used at the moment. Do...


I am not familliar with that brand, so I do not know if it is a cable/dsl modem, a router, or a combination of the 2. I will assume it is the cable or dsl modem since you said modem.

The thing we need to do first is give you a basic understanding of whats what, and how it works.

Imagine a 3 tier water fountain. Water flows from the top, to the center, to the bottom.

Your home network is the same way. Signal flows from the MODEM to the ROUTER to the COMPUTER CLIENTS in that order. Keep this in mind. Also, remember you never, NEVER setup a router from a wireless computer client. you ALWAYS use an ethernet connected client in port 1 2 3 or 4.

Quick education about Firewalls: They are programs and devices that are designed SPECIFICALLY to BLOCK TRAFFIC. Think of them like Toll Roads. YOU have to open each virtual port for inbound, outbound, or both. Since that is such a painstaking thing, most firewalls come with default port settings, blocking the most typically unused traffic ports and monitoring the common ones, such as port 80 (the internet port) port 110 (the sending mail POP port) and port 25 (the receiving mail SMTP port). That is why typically, people who can get online (but cant send or receive email) have to disable their firewall or antivirus (security) suite, because the program is closing the ports making them useless. IF you have a router, theres a 99.9% chance that YOU WILL NOT need a firewall. Routers are firewalls by nature.

Quick education about LAN (LAN means Local Area Network, meaning a router inside your house or inside your office or a series of switches and ports setup in your apartment, your "local area") settings: Most lans are DHCP, which means nothing to you, but, in lamens terms it means that you hook it up, turn it on, and it auto configures itself. In the olden days, you had to tell your computer its address, and tell the router its address and the address of each computer, and so forth. Thanks to dhcp, they can now negotiate a lease and assign that info automatically. SO, make sure DHCP is ENABLED. and make sure your lan settings are set to "Obtain ip address and dns server automatically".

Quick education about drivers. you DO need drivers for the wireless devices, you DO need drivers for the ethernet devices, but you DO NOT need drivers for the router, and YOU DO NOT need drivers for the modem. DO NOT HOOK THE MODEM TO THE COMPUTER THRU USB! USB is never to be used unless you do not have ethernet capability, it's like a spare tire. Remove any USB wires from the modem and put them away please! The ONLY wires you want in the modem are POWER and ETHERNET. (they dont make USB routers because USB is not a networking device, USB is a peripheral device)

You will be using Ethernet connection. An ethernet connection requires that you only have the ethernet drivers. So:
YES you need to make sure your ethernet drivers are installed and that your ethernet ports are enabled and working, and:
YES you need to make sure that your wireless card is enabled and functioning, and radio is switched to ON.

Now, remember the fountain? We are going to build it here. The trick is that we have to reset the DHCP list. (if we dont, then it wont work because DHCP will be stubborn and try to talk to the other items, not knowing they were removed). So, we will need to unplug power to the modem and router and shut down each pc client... after you print these directions of course.

While everything is off, hook the main computer into PORT 1 on the router. Make sure that PORTS 2 3 and 4 are empty. (fyi, you can use those for xbox, ps2/3 or wii, or any extra computers). Now, look for a port that says "LAN" or "ETHERNET" or UPLINK on the router. (it will be an ethernet port that doesnt have a number). hook that to the cable/dsl modem. You should now have the modem, hooked to the router, the router hooked to the main pc. Lets start the water flow.

plug power into the modem and wait 1 minute for DHCP synch with the company. (usually you see a sync light or a ready light).

once the modem is synched with the ISp, plug power to the router and wait 1 minute. (so the router can get the dhcp from the modem)

If your modem and router are combined in 1 device, then just wait for synch with isp.

Now start the main computer and try the internet. If you can get online, you have a good network connection. The rest will have to be done by the wireless router mfr, but it isnt hard. In fact, by default, you should be able to start your wireless and get online through it now, but you may want to consider wireless security, (WEP WPA) settings. Call the rtr mfr for those. (its not hard, just tedious and this post is long enough already).. lol. Quick note about wifi: its flaky. If you have a 2.4 ghz phone in your area you may drop connection (wireless only). try different wifi channels to resolve the issue, (call router mfr).

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

I have a Belkin Wireless G Router. It is hooked up to the desktop. My laptop does not recognize to make wireless. I looked under network connections and the router is not listed.What do I do?


Network Connections are just for naming configurations for stuff. Configure your wireless network adapter and have it look for things to make a connections, and it can make you a 'Network Connection' for that Windows folder if you want. Otherwise just connect using the controlpanel for the device and be happy. Your router would not have WiFi turned on by default; that would be stupid and insecure. Read the fine manual and config the router from a wired connection to your laptop or PC so you can set up nice wireless passphrases and stuff.
