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

How to turn on bluetooth radio


Which operating system ???...
There are a variety of ways to connect to the Internet or a home/business network using your Hewlett-Packard (HP) desktop computer---via a modem, Ethernet cable and even wirelessly.
A wireless connection works by sending a signal from your modem or router to your HP desktop's built-in wireless radio.
The radio receives and processes the signal so you can access the Internet or a home or business network.
In order for the signal to be received by your HP desktop, you must enable the wireless radio within the computer's configuration.

Click "Start," "Control Panel."
Double-click on the "HP Wireless Assistant" icon.
The HP Wireless Assistant dialog box will open.
Click the "Turn On" button next to the words "Wireless LAN."
Click "Close" to activate the wireless radio.

Bigpond have sent me my 4 port Wi-Fi modem thompson TG782T Home Network Gateway, now I am sitting here trying to figure out just where everything goes!!! I received a cd rom however I can't get it to work,...


Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

You need to install either an "airport card" in your system or if you already have one in your computer, you need to download "airport" from the apple website. This is the only way MAC's can receive wireless signal.
