What operating system are you running on all the computers? Are you trying to network the laptops/dekstop together or trying to access the internet?

How do I hookup a dell inspiron I 6603049


To attach a computer to the internet, you will need to have an internet connection in your home.
Your Dell inspiron desktop does not have a wireless connection card in it, unless you ordered that with your purchase. Unlike laptops, which mostly do have a Wifi card in it, to be more mobile.

After subscribing you will probably get a router to connect to your ISP (Internet Service Provider) something like this, sometimes the antenna's are inside (the antenna is for wireless connections):http://www.dlink.com/-/media/images/Products/DIR/803/DIR803A1ImageHBack.png
In the yellow port comes the internet connection from the modem, in the ports 1,2,3 and 4 you can connect internet capable devices, so also a desktop computer.

Then to get your computer connecting to the router you need to attach a so-called patch cable http://www.computercablestore.com/Certified_Cat_6_Patch_Boo_Blue_catID2175.aspx
to the router and to your computer in the network port: Sometimes the ISP gives one added to the package when you get your router.

Normally after booting up the computer will find the network automatically, else call the helpdesk of your internet provider or ask a computer knowledgable person to help you.

This is a Fibre Glass Modem on the right and next to it a router (left), the router can connect to your computer.

Connecting to my network


Its not a modem its a router. A Modem plugs in to a Telephone line. A Router plugs in to a Broad Band Line. A Modem connects to a RJ11 Cable. A Router Connects to a Coaxial Cabal, the router connects to a computer via wireless or ethernet after that. A Modem connects to a computer using RJ11 or RJ45 Cat4 Ethernet. Very different.

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

Your router has an lan address or IP. Something like 192.168.1.1. This is what you must connect to. Each of the machines you want to connect must have (in this example) an IP number between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.225. As long as your machines all have a unique IP they should all connect to your router. Your modem will have a gateway and typically this will be something like 10.0.0.1. So setup for one machine may look like this [192.168.1.3 subnet 255.255.255.0

To find these setting, click on your lan connection, select "properties" and choose "Internet Protocol TCP/IP". Here you will see these settings. Your router guide will give you these settings, make sure you get them from your router guide.

Using a ppoe connection to a DI-524 is it necessary to put a modem in line?


DSL connection:

Computer -> Router(Dlink) -> DSL Modem -> Telephone wall jack/outlet

OR

Computer -> DSL Modem -> Telephone wall jack/outlet

PPPOE = using a username/password combination to authenticate the connection to the ISP.

How do i setup my wireless dlink so that i can connect my laptop through main computer


I'm not exactly sure as to give you the right answere as i dont have enough info on laptop and wireless modem. But in windows on your laptop ,look for SEACH FOR WIRELESS NETWORKS. On your pc when you set up your router you should have put in a password. This password you should have to use when your laptop finds your network, its as simple as putting in the password and away you go.If in doubt, contack dlink (usually toll free number) and give them a call. But remember to write things down as you might find yourself having to do it again (lost files,power outage.etc) so might be a good idea to keep a record. good luck JLS

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.
