Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

3 Answers

Help me..... I have 3 computers in my home. 1 imac desktop, a toshiba laptop & an hp laptop. All 3 computers have been receiving the wireless connection for 3 years with no problem. I recently took the hp with me on a trip to california and was able to access the internet at the hotel just fine. Since I've been home (a week now) I cannot access the internet from my hp even though my computer gives every indication I am connected and the signal strength is excellent. I have rebooted my modem and my linksys router and still not able to get the internet on the hp. My mac & toshiba have no problem. Any idea what else I can do to fix this problem?

You might want to check and see if the wireless connxn you used while traveling required you using a proxy server. If that is the case you may have to uncheck the box within your connection properties. In your internet options click on connections tab and then click on lan settings and make sure the use proxy server box is unchecked.
Good Luck

Possibly that the wireless network that your HP is trying to connecto is not there anymore, common issue on my PC's

here is what you do:

if you have XP and other PC's are online:
1.right click the"wireless network connection icon (bottom right hand side) then click on view available network.
2.then on the left side click on "change the order of preferred network".
3.remove the name of your network, the current one, or you may delete all that you are not connecting to.
4.then hit okay all the way out
5.try to reconnect to your network, it may possibly ask you again for a security (if your network is secured, and you'll be connected

if you have Vista:
1.right click your network connection icon, the click on "Network and sharing center"
2.then on the left side of the window click on "Manage Wireless Networks"
3.then do the same, remove your network from the list then hit OK all the way out
4.the reconnect to yout network.

BUT if you are using a specific utility for your wireless connection, let me know so that i will be able to provide you specifics for the brand.

good luck

I have just purchased a Toshiba Sattlelite laptop computer and bought the router. My problem is i dont know how to get the router connected to my laptop. I have a desktop and dsl modem but not sure how...


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

I believe as ou have new laptop computer make sure your wireless switch on your laptop should be turn on or in order to make sure about your wireless switch you can also try to connect wirelessly in Cafe or your friends home because your computer atleast see your router.

I believe this will resolve your issue.

Option1: Install both USB printers on the desktop computer, and then share them. Your laptops will be able to connect to them, but only when the desktop is turned on.

Option2: Buy a wireless print server, (Available from D-Link, LInksys, HP, etc) and use that to connect your USB printers wirelessly.

If you also want to wirelessly connect the desktop to your network, purchase either a USB, or PCI Wireless NIC for it.

P660HW-D1 Router not working wireless


Problem with the Zyxel P-660?   I experienced:
1. laptop would see the wireless 660HW briefly and then it would disappear.   2. laptop would not see wireless at all. 3.  same issue with desktop when using USB wireless 11g dongle 4. no problem on wired connection (ethernet)
EASY solution!   if Zyxel is set to scan for a channel it will want to work on channel 13 nearly every time in a busy environment.
HP laptops and many receivers cannot recieve on 13 -  highest channel is 12.   
Pick on setting for the Zyxel which matches an available channel on your receiver.  Problem solved.

Desktop works (direct to router), laptops cannot connect


first of all make sure that the wireless settings of the router match the settings of your wireless computer.

make sure also that there are no friewall or security programs running in your computer because they can interfere with the wireless connection as well.

No internet connection with laptop computers in home


Good day!

If your Desktop computer is hardwired to the router and your laptop computers can't connect wirelessly, it could be your wireless computers are not synchronized with your router by not having the same settings as the router.

You can use the desktop machine to access your router web interface (setup page) to check the wireless settings such as SSID (Network Name-> Name of your wireless signal shown on your laptop computers), channel and security (wether it is WEP or WPA encryption)

The channel and network name will be automatically detected by the wireless computers. If you have an encryption/security on the router, you need to type the password on the wireless computers for them to authenticate.

Try these and post back if there's any progress

Home network w/ XP pro desktop and Vist Home pro laptop


So you want to remotely control your Desktop from your laptop from anywhere, correct?

Well only thing you need  is an internet connection, and you can access your desktop.

There are tons of software you can use to control your desktop remotely.

Here are some good ones:

Logmein free click that, that will link you to LogMein's free solution.

Logmein offers several solutions, the free is what I would use for you unless you wanted to pay.

Another very good one is:
RemotelyAnywhere click there, that is a very good software probably my favorite.

Those are the main 2 that you would like.

There are other ones more for more advanced users like:
