Wireless connection problem. laptop ip address is 60.60.x.x
Hello, just purchased wbr-1310 router. got the setup to connect to the internet. the desktop can connect to the internet and can surf the net. wanted to set up my laptop to connect to the net wirelessly. It sees the router and can connect to the router with excellent signal. However, I am not able to connect to the internet using the laptop. when I look at the ip address of the wireless card of the laptop it shows 60.60.X.X where X.X are numbers. I tried resetting the router but still the same. can someone please help.

First you will need to find the local IP address of your router. It should look something like "192.168.0.1" You might be able to find it in either your router manual or on the bottom of the router itself. Then make sure your computer is connected to the router via wireless or ethernet cable. Next, open your browser and type in the IP address into the address bar. It should take you to a setup page that looks a lot like a website. Find the "wireless security" tab and select a security protocol. I recommend using either WPA or WPA2. Now you can set a password. Finally, there should be "save" button on the page. Click it, then wait for your router to reboot and your network is now secure.
You must ensure that you have enabled the router as a DHCP server and the client PC network connection is set up to "obtain an IP address automatically". If the computer is not obtaining a valid IP address from the DHCP server (i.e. the router) you will get the limited or no connectivity error. You can easily check to see if you have a good IP address by opening a CMD prompt window and running ipconfig.exe. Generally, the WBR-1310 will have assigned an IP address like 192.168.0.xxx. If you have an IP address like 169.254.xxx.xxx you router is not assigning your computer a valid IP address. Powering down the PC and/or the router will usually fix this, but not always. There are other, more compliated, steps that can resolve the problem if the above steps do not work.
HI. you have to check first what kid of modem u have.. im sure if the laptop is connected directly to the modem, u have a wired connection and u can connect to the internet.. if ur modem is a cable modem, u need to mac clone the mac address of the computer that can connect to the internet. u need to connect the computer that can connect to the internet to the router and do a mac clone and the internet connection settings is dhcp..if u are using a username and password to connect to the internet, u need to use the pppoe settings on the router, and if ur isp give u a static ip address, u need to set the router on static ip. how u can check the ip address, click on start, run and type cmd and it will show a dos prompt, type ipconfig/all and it will list the ip address, subnetmask, default gateway and dns server.. u need to setup the router first in order to talk to ur modem..
Try to bypass the router and connect to your modem. Make sure you have Internet connection.
>If you have Internet connection. connect back your modem to the router.
>access the configuration page of your router.
>If you are given a specific IP by your Internet Service Provider, use that one.
>Login to your Dlink (type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1)
>Click Setup and Internet > Click on Manual Configure
>My Internet connection would be Static IP
>Type in your IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary and Alternate DNS
>Click on Save Setting on top.
but if your Internet Service Provider did not provide you those informations
> Under My Internet connection Type choose DYNAMIC IP
>Click on Clone Your PC MAC address
>Click on Save Settings
>If it ask you to reboot, click on Reboot.
>At the very top click on Status
>Under Status look for WAN
>Under WAN look for IP address
>If you have values beside from zero it means you have Internet connection otherwise, call your dlink manufacturer for manual configuring your router for Internet connection.
if you are wireless, after a reset you need to connect with the router using an RJ45 lan connector lead.
Reboot your notebook, while connect to router and then type in the default address for the set up page normally 192.168.0.1
