WRT54g3 wont connect toAT&T network

I've gone through the setup five different ways and at the end I get the same error message, "check network card and call network". The card is a Sierria Wireless AirCard 860 Cingular and works fine in my laptop. Is this card not compatible or am I missing something?

Networking Issues


Problem: Network Cable Unplugged

Description: Don’t take this message literally - there are many causes besides not having a cable physically plugged into the network card. The message really means that the network card doesn’t detect a live link to another device on the other end of the cable.

Possible Solutions:
Download and install the latest network card driver program.
Check the cabling - a bad cable will prevent link detection. Substitute a cable that’s known to be good.
Check the link lights on the device on the other end of the cable, whether it’s a hub, switch, router, or a NIC in another computer. It should show a live link to the NIC. If it doesn’t, try a different port.
Auto-detecting speed and duplex mode can be unreliable. Set them manually. Most routers and switches use 100Mb, full duplex. Hubs can only use half duplex.
Problem: Renewing a DHCP lease fails, with error message “An error occurred while renewing interface <name>: The system cannot find the file specified.”

Problem: Network connection configured to obtain an IP address automatically has IP address 0.0.0.0

Solution: Make sure that the DHCP Client service is running:
Right click My Computer, and click Manage.
Double click Services and Applications.
Double click Services.
Double click DHCP Client. If the Service status is Stopped, click Start.
Set the Startup type to Automatic.

Problem: Network Connection Has IP Address 169.254.x.x
Description: The network card is configured to obtain an IP address automatically, and it’s connected to a network with a DHCP server: hardware router, another computer running Internet Connection Sharing, cable modem, DSL modem, etc. But it gets a 169.254.x.x IP address, which indicates that it can’t communicate with the DHCP server:

Possible Solutions:
Connect the computer using a different Ethernet cable or hub/switch/router port.
Download and install the latest firmware for the hardware router.
Disable XP’s Internet Connection Firewall <../xp/ic_firewall.htm> on the local area network connection.
The card is configured to automatically sense network speed and duplex mode, but auto-sensing is failing. Configure the speed and duplex mode manually. For example, most switches and routers use 100 Mb speed and full duplex. To make the settings, right click the network connection and click Properties | Configure | Advanced.
Un-install the network card and move it to a different slot.
If you have a cable modem connection, turn off the computer, turn off the cable modem, and wait a few minutes. Turn on the cable modem, and then turn on the computer.

Error Message: An error has occurred while trying to share <filename>. The Server service is not started. The shared resource was not created at this time.

Solution:
To start the Server service:

Right click My Computer and select Manage.
Double click Services and Applications.
Double click Services.
Scroll down the list of services and double click Server.
Click the Start button.
Set the Startup type to Automatic.
Click Apply and OK.
Problem: Computer A Can Ping Computer B, but not Vice Versa
Solution: This is almost always caused by an improperly configured firewall on Computer A.

Problem: One Computer Can’t Access Some Web Sites, but Other Computers Can

Solution: Look for the Windows Hosts file on the problem computer:
Windows 95/98/Me: C:\Windows\Hosts
Windows 2000: C:\WinNT\System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts
Windows XP: C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts
Open it with a text editor and you'll probably find lines with the names of the sites that you can't access. Delete those lines, save the file, and try again. If those are the only lines in the file, delete the file. Be sure to save it with a file name of just Hosts, with no file type. If your editor saves it as Hosts.txt, rename it to just Hosts.
The Hosts file can be created by "web accelerator" programs that store name-to-IP address translations. This might speed up access by a tiny amount, but it causes problems when a site's IP address changes.


Problem: A shared disk or folder doesn’t appear in My Network Places

Description: The disk or folder is shared correctly on another computer, but it doesn’t appear.
Solution 1: Click Add a network place and follow the prompts to add it. Browse to it through Entire Network, or specify the path name using the form \\computer\share.
Solution 2: Click View workgroup computers, then click the computer that has the shared disk or folder.

Problem: XP's Network Setup Wizard Says That No Network Card Is Installed

Solution: XP's Network Setup Wizard sometimes fails to recognize an installed and working network card. This is because the NIC's driver program doesn't respond correctly to all of the queries that the Wizard makes when it's looking for a NIC. Configure the card’s TCP/IP properties manually. Here’s how to do it for Windows 95/98/Me <../ics/icsclient.htm>, Windows 2000 <../ics/ics_win2k_client.htm>, and Windows XP <../xp_ics/clientwiz.htm>. Then set the workgroup name to MSHOME.


Problem: Windows XP takes a long time to open a shared disk or folder on a computer running Windows 95, 98, or Me

Description: This is a different problem than My Network Places taking a long time to open <slowbrowse02.htm>. This problem occurs after you double click a shared disk or folder.
Possible Solutions:
Disable searching for scheduled tasks
This Microsoft Knowledge Base article <http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us; Q245800> describes a bug in Windows 2000 Professional that might also exist in Windows XP. Disable searching for scheduled tasks by deleting this registry key:

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

Had 3 d-link routers that keep giving off the error message that the "network cable is unplugged" all different models at different locations connected to differnt computers any ideas?


Hi, either there is a broken cable or faulty connector some where or the Lan card in your pc is faulty.

1/ Check all cables
2/ start with one router and connect that up by its self, without any other router.Connection should be made as close to the pc. You know the usual setup, modem,router,pc.
We are trying to narrow it down.

If pc still says network cable unplugged then make sure the lan card, in your pc is seated properly.Are you using a seperate lan card or the the motherboard connection.

I have just found that this product was discontinued in 2003,you are probably better of buying a new one.

But any how let me know how you get on.

Ethernet not work


Check in the Device manager to see if all the devices are enable and working.
The one with a yellow ? against that device requires a driver installation.
Is the LAN device OK?
How do you intend to setup your LAN, is it for Internet access or a home network?
I need more information on your problem, together with error messages.

Daisy-Chaining a HomeLink Phoneline Network


With a HomeLink card installed in your PC, connect your PC to a phone jack using a standard phone cable. Using another standard phone cable, connect the card's other phone cable port to connect to your second PC. Continue to connect up to twenty-five PCs in this way on one chain. If you want to use your telephone, modem, or fax machine, add a two-way splitter to your wall?s phone jack or connect the device to the empty phone jack in the last card at the end of your daisy chain. Daisy-chaining your HomeLink PCs and peripherals can create a simple network that acts in the same way an Ethernet network acts on your PC's desktop. In a HomeLink network, data passes into one side of a port, and continues out from the port?s other side. You can string up to 25 PCs on a single HomeLink network, provided that the entire length of cable does not exceed 150 meters (500 feet). HomeLink networks can send data through existing telephone lines without disrupting your telephone service. If you have PCs on two different floors of your house, plug one of the downstairs PCs into the phone jack in the wall, and you're able to network your PCs upstairs without running excessive amounts of extra cable.
