As long as the router has wireless antenna's on it or indicates it is a wireless model then all you need to do is turn on the wireless function of the router. You do this by access the router, open a web browser and try either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.0.100 one of those should be your router. Log in and go to the wireless settings. There you can enable it and configure it.

From there, as long as your laptop has a wireless network card built in, it will see the wireless network and you can just connect to it...

I want to connect a wireless Cannon printer to a Toshiba laptop, do I need a certain type of router? I have WiFi and WWAN internet connection, do I still need a router?


The printer needs to be connected to a router.
The router has to be wireless.
The laptop should then be connected to the router in order to install.

The printer shoul have an option to search and connect to a wireless router. After searching an connecting, you have to connect the laptop to the router and install the printer as an network printer.

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.

You have to set the connection.

Go to wireless connections

If you get the signal, select the right network (yours) and connect the device.

My laptop says that it is connected to my wireless router but the router isn't connected to the internet what should i do to connect it?


Hi,

If the router is turned ON then automatically your laptop wireless card will detect it and connect to the router.

To say in otherwords, now your notebook and Router are simple network.

You need to contact your router support to configure the router to get Internet. After automatically your notebook gets the Internet from the Router.

The above message is just by what I understood from your message.

If the issue is different, and if the router is already configured to Internet and if there are other systems connected to the router and able to access Internet, then replay back, so that I can explain accordingly

Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.


Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.

Are you trying to connect the laptop using wireless? If so, you probably don't have the wireless settings from your router setup on the laptop. If you have a Windows based computer, click START => RUN.., type CMD, then hit OK. A black DOS window will appear. Type IPCONFIG and hit ENTER. You should see something like this:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.xxx
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

Open your web browser and type in the address you see next to "Default Gateway" (in this example it's 192.168.0.1). This *should* be your router. Hit ENTER and you should connect to your router's web interface. From here you can find your wireless settings and match them on your laptop.


Laptops also usually have off/on switches for the wireless feature. Check to make sure you have the wireless card actually turned on. That is a simple mistake people make.


I hope this somehow helps.
