What you need is a wireless printer access points to connect your printer to your network. This way all the computers will be able to send print jobs to the printer. Send me an E=mail and I will tell you where to get one cheap and how to hook it up. I will call you.

Well if the wireless will not be that far from where the router will be installed you can get a regular wireless g broadband router. WRT54G, or WRT54G2.

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.

My dell demension E310 dont have ethernet plugs on it. how do i get my wireless router to work and my cable modem only has one ethernet plug and one usb slot


plug the cable that is now on your computer into the wiriless router.
plug another cable from your router to the computer.
go to 192.168.0.1 (the ip of the router. you usually find it on the prospectus or on the back of the router)
the possible combination for username and password are: user-user, admin-admin, admin-1234, admin-0000, admin-default, unknown-unknown.
clone your mac and after that you should be able to browse the internet from your desktop and laptop.
you can also set an encryption key to secure your network

Hi! I will be more than glad to assist u in this concern..That is right! if u bypass the router it will work, the reason why the modem wont talk to the router bcoz the router is not properly setup.. if you are using a cable modem from ur cable company provider- u need to do a mac clone on the router ,u have to clone the mac address of ur dell desktop computer which works with the local cable company... normaly the mac of ur computer is the one register to your cable company and on the setup page of the router just select on the internet setup, dhcp after clonning the mac address of your computer. u need to connect ur computer directly to the router and then after doing the process connect the router to the modem.

you will have to access the router by the ip address.
(192.168.??.??)once you log in, user name blank and password admin. you will have to set up wireless security. there are several ways and each that is selected has a brief tutorial.

Sometimes, people who are gamers or use Ipods, leave the router unsecure but limit the wireless access by mac address or by ip address so only those wireless devices gain access.

No internet connection


Some ISPs require you to register the MAC address of your network adapter before their DHCP server will issue you an IP address. The MAC address of the router is different than the MAC address of the NIC in your laptop. Call your ISP and they should be able to help you.

I have a dlink wireless router di 624 air plus xtreme g.


Are you operating the laptop with the wireless on and a cable too? You should probably choose one or the other and not both at the same time.

If you are only operating both computers on a wire then --

Assuming all cables are completely plugged in securely

If the problem is intermittent you may need to use your laptop in a normal fashion -- to see if any movement causes the disconnection. If there is a internottently defective cable when it is in your desktop it may fail less frequently, Meaning, it may work more consistenly because your desktop does not get moved around. (This last instance may avoid detection in this testing process)

Try swapping the laptop's cable with your desktop computer's cable at the computer end and see of the problem moves.

If it does not move you may have a problem with the ethernet port on the laptop -- end of test.

If the problem does not appear -- you may not have an issue or you may have a defective cable probably attached to the desktop now as noted above failing more infrequently so you have not observed it yet.

If it moves you may have either a bad cable or a bad router port -- continue test.

To determine which swap the cable's on the router end this time between the two attached ports (use the same ports with the opposite cable in each).

If the problem moves again it is the router port -- try switching the cable of the non-working machine to a new router port.

If the problem stays put is probably a defective cable. It will probably be easiest to replace the cable.

I hope this helps.
