Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I can't seem to get my wireless router to work on any computers lately. The only way it works is to plug in a network cord to the router and my laptop. At first I thought it was my computer but I brought my office laptop home and it worked for awhile and now it won't work either without plugging in a network cable to the router.

    It was not the router after all. It was the wireless internal card. I bought a wireless thumb drive and it now works. The computer is only 14 months old and for the wireless card to go out that quick seems wrong. Oh well. Thanks anyway.

How to retrieve password from wireless access point router zyxel -570u


Initial Set-Up
Plug your wireless router into the cable connection in your wall. Plug the connection cord into the "WAN" port on the router. Plug the router's power source into the wall and turn the router on. Connect your wireless access point to your router by pushing one end of an Ethernet cord into the WAP. Push the other end of the Ethernet cord into the "LAN" port on the router. The WAP connects your wireless devices to your router.
Connect your laptop or computer to the WAP. Click the "Start" button on your computer and then click "Control Panel." Click "Network and Internet" and then select "Network and Sharing Center." The "Network and Sharing Center" window opens.
Click "Set up a wireless router or access point." Click the "Next" button.
Follow the prompts to create a wireless pass phrase or security key. Write the key down in a safe location to ensure access later, if required.

Hello i am having probelms with my Belkin g basic router it has wireless and it works but when i connect it to my computer it does not it says it can't find or something but if i plug in my other box that...


It's sounds like you're getting your cords mixed up. The modem (the box from your company that provides internet) needs it's power cord plugged in, a phone cord or a cable cord plugged in, and an ethernet (LAN) cord plugged into it. The power cord will plug into the wall obviously, the phone cord or cable cord will be coming out of the wall obviously, but the Ethernet (LAN) cord will plug into your computer or a router. A router in your case. So the Ethernet cord from your modem (box that came from you company that provides internet) will plug into the router in the specific slot that says Internet or Modem connection. Now you need another Ethernet cord to go from your router to your computer. Try to plug the cord that goes from the router to the computer into the 4 different ports on the router until one of them works, you'll have to give it about a min to check each one. If that doesn't fix it then you need to make sure your LAN card is being read correctly and installed correctly, best way to do this is to go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager and look at Network Adapters. If there is a Red X next to a conenction, right+click the conenction and tell it to enable, or update drivers.

For somw strange reason i cant pick up any internet unless i plug in the network cord into my laptop.... it used to work b4.. can someone help me?


If you connect the cord to the laptop and the router it works that means the wired connection of the router is working only the wireless connection is not working.
It might be the issue of the wireless settings of the router or the computer. You will need ot check the wireless settings of the router and the computer.
to check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to open the router set up page. Is there any computer connected to the router ?
if not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the router set up page.

Router not working correctly with my two computers..


If you are using an USB cord, then you probably are using a modem rather than a router.

One of the differences between a modem and a router, is that with a modem you can connect to the WAN network only one machine , while a router will assign IPs to multiple machines, connecting them directly to Internet service.

All you need is a wireless router like this. To configure the router you will need to enter the parameters provided by your Internet Service Provider company.

If you have lost the parameters, when you set the router you can call your Internet Provider to be guided step by step in setting the router.

The router can be purchased directly from your Internet Provider.

Regards.

I have a Dell XPS 1330 laptop and a DI-524 wireless router.


Unsure what your problem is exactly but here is something to try. Power off all computers, modem and router. Power up the modem first, and wait until it is completely up before proceeding. Next power up the router and wait until it is completely up, the only light that probably wont be lit is the LAN light. Then power up each computer, they can all be powered on at the same time, that part really doesnt matter. See if that fixes the problem.

Dlink rangebooster usb wireless adapter problems


I have many D-Link router and printer server /wirless adapters in operation.

I love the product, but find periodically that the power cord/converter seems to not connect and the router/adapter goes dead. If I swap power cords, away it goes.

I have found that the plug end entering the adapter needs to be periodically cleaned (alcohol wipe works well & dried before reinsertion). I have tested all my power cord/converters when they don't seem to work and they all are functioning normally with proper voltage output. The connection is usually the issue.
