If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probablydid not get an IP address from the wireless router. To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.
Hi check if the same wireless name defined in your laptop if you have it go wireless setting remove the current name and try to connect , check the wireless encryption WEP or WPA you should have same setting for both Laptop and your router ,another thing u should check is make sure DHCP enabled on your router and on your laptop you should get IP address and DNS automatically also check the if you get any IP address it should be 192.168.0.* for your Router you can go to start type CMD then type ipconfig you will get the IP ADDress if you need more help please contact me on http://computernetworksupportindubai.com/
You must enable the DHCP setting on wireless router if you've configured
the computer's wireless adapter to obtain an IP address automatically.
If not you will get the "failed to acquire an IP address" error when you
try to connect to wireless network! Also don't forget to configure big
enough IP range on router's DHCP setting, because the router won't be
able to assign IP to 6 computers if you only configured 5 IP space on
If you have trouble connecting to your modem, you may need to lock the
speed down on the WAN port of your router to 10Mbps. Within the
web-based configuration utility for the router, go to Tools > Misc
and the option to select the WAN speed will be towards the bottom. Not
all routers have this option.
Follow the steps configuring the router once again...
Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration by typing in
the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser.
The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank
Note:The address 192.168.0.1 is NOT on the Internet. The web-based configuration is built-in to the router.
Step 2 Click the Setup tab and then click the Internet button.
Dynamic IP Address is the default value, however, if Dynamic IP Address
is not selected as the WAN type, select Dynamic IP Address from the
drop down menu. Click Clone Mac Address. Click on Save Settings to save
Step 4 Click on Status. Under WAN, Click DHCP Renew. If it does not get an IP address or times out, then continue with the next step.
Step 5 Power cycle the cable modem and router using the following steps:
Turn the cable modem off (first)
Turn the router off
Leave them off for 2 minutes**
Turn the cable modem on (first)
Wait until you get a solid cable light on the cable modem
Turn the router on
Wait 30 seconds ..
Step 6 Follow Step 1 again to log back into the
web configuration. Click the Status tab and click the Device Info
button. If you do not already have a public IP address under the WAN
heading, click on the DHCP Renew button.
Temporarily plug in wire network cable into Dell and log into Dell.
1. Set wireless up the same as the Belkin. Save these settings.
2. Set WAN to "Static IP Address and give it an address about 25 higher than Belkin. (Belkin 220.127.116.11 - Del 192.168.0.26). Save these settings.
3. Disable DHCP and Save these settings.
Exit web browser and disconnect network cable. Restart your complete system, first the Belkin, then the Dell, then your computers.
This way, the Belkin is running and able to assign IP addresses to all that start after it.
Let me know the settings of your Router if needed IP address?
Yes - add your IP address into Network Connection.
No - obtained the setting in your Network Connection.
How to Add or Obtained the setting s of your IP address:
- goto Control Panel
- Double Click Network Connection
- Rigth Click then Properties the Local Area Connection
- Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and select Properties
- Under General Tab they have choices to add or obtained settings.
The first step to trouble shooting any networking problem is to perform a full power cycle.
To do this, unplug the ac adapter from the router and count to 60. Plug it back in and wait for it to reconnect. Once it reconnects test your internet connection and see if that fixed it.
Another thing you may want to try is double checking to see if your IP address is in the same IP Range as your High-Speed Modem. If the IP address is the same, or even in the same range, packets occasionally get routed incorrectly (causing slow downs and disconnects).
if you give the automatic ip address obtian throught dhcp in that you give proxery server if there then remove it . and go to the router page and go to dhcp in that you enable and give the dns there and ip address you isp . then you get it after then you not get it then disable the proxery server. in laptop give both automatic.
I have a friend that works at 2 wire. I've bought a couple of their products. And I'm a computer geek. Unless I miss my guess it shouldn't matter what is plugged into it, be it laptop or desktop. It may be locked down to the MAC address on the NIC, but I doubt it. Anyway you'd just browse to it's embedded webpage and change the setting. The IP address is the same as the gateway address on the laptop plugged into it.
I think I bought that model for my dad but I can't remember the exact model number on it. Anyway the one I bought, and set up for my Dad, I had several different computers hooked up to it and never had a problem.
