Speedtouch 576 router share

I sure hope I am explaining this correctly. I have a desktop pc. It is wired to a speedtouch 576 router my son has a laptop wireless inspiron. He shares the router with us. I have noticed that my pc runs great if he has not used his pc for a few days. Howerver when he has turned on his pc and been active with it,I then turn mine on and it makes a spinning noise. I am free of adware and my logs are clean so what can it be. I am not feezing up or having any other strange problems other than that. Also after the pc is on and I run a chkdsk I can get the noise to stop?

Sometimes they fight each other, my sister brought her Apple laptop to my home and use my wireless system, she reset her laptop and works fine, but ours cp doesn't work right, until she left, because she reset the different pass word, our systm was completely shut dowm, took me almost two months to fix it.

I think each system is different, your situation maybe caused by this fight each other and influence each other problem.

Be careful.

Broadband wireless adapter limited connectivity issues


If the wireless security on the router is enabled, then the pre-shared key or encryption key on the router and PC should match.

To check the wireless settings, use the laptop to access the web interface of the router. Follow the steps below:

1 Using your Internet browser, go to http://dsldevice.lan or to the IP address of your router (by default: 192.168.1.254).
2 On the Home Network menu, click Wireless.
3 In the upper-right corner, click Details.
4 The wireless Access Point page appears. Under:
- Configuration, you can find the network name (SSID).
- Security, you can find the encryption.

On the PC wireless, access the wireless network connection. Select the SSID and then type the encryption key or pre-shared key.

Once the encryption key on the PC and router matches, then you should obtain an IP address and get online.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Wireless


Whats the exact model # of the Speedtouch?
Well if your Modem doesn't have a WAN for a network cable (RJ-45) if all it has is a usb for connecting to a PC only I hope you have WindowsXP or Vista. Well what you can do is use your PC as a gateway like... What you would need to do is Plug the speedtouch into your PC with the usb... Plug the WAN from your router into your PC's network jack. Now you can go and do the Wireless/Network setup wizard and tell it your using a PC to connect other PC's to the net.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).

Pc connection problems


Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS

BT Voyager 2091 Wireless ADSL Router - DROP OUT


If you face frequent drop outs confirm with your isp that it's not a problem with line...and also check the physical setup of broadband check if your router is connected to main socket of your house where telephone line enters in your house......
now when you face drop outs check on your hard wired comp whether you remain connected or not if no its a problem with line..
if no reconfig your bt router for wireless network change the channel of your wireless network either to 1 or 11...
or either there is one other way reset your router to default settings by pressing the pin at the back of your router..
and after that your router will start its default wireless network i.e a unsecure network..
try connecting to that network if still the same there are drop outs it's a problem with router....contact bt to config the router...
