A wireless network can be extremely valuable. Just look at how cellular phones have become so valuable versus when we were in the landline phone age.

I'm using windows 7 with a wireless rca by thompson dcw725 router. my desktop is wired into it, but i got a laptop that connects wireless, but has no internet access, says limited connectivity. Any ideas...


First of all, you need to check if the laptop is correctly connectedto the router.
try the following steps to see if you are effectively connected to the router :

1. Open the command prompt on your desktop computer (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command prompt OR Windows Key+R -> type cmd).
2. Type ipconfig /all and then note down the value given for Default Gateway
3. Repeat the first two steps on the laptop and compare the values of Default Gateway.

If the values are different, then it means the laptop is not correctly connected to the router.
You will have to delete the Wireless network configuration (In the Network and Sharing Center, you will find it in "Manage Wireless Networks").Then start the wizard for connecting to a wireless network. Be sure that you enter the network security key correctly.

If the default gateway values are correct, check the firewall/antivirus settings on your laptop. If you cannot or don't know where to look, deactivate them completely and try again.
You may also need to check the parental control settings and your web browser settings (notably if it is in offline mode).

Last but not least, on the laptop, delete all broadband connections and/or dial-up connections that are present (in the Network and Sharing Center, go to "Change adapter settings" to find any broadband or dial-up connections).

The Advanced Wireless Settings on a Linksys Dual-Band Wireless A+G Router allow you to customize different options and optimize your wireless network's performance. Linksys, however, does not recommend changing the advance wireless settings of the router. The current settings have been configured to optimize the router's wireless performance.
Accessing the Advanced Wireless Settings
Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using Mac to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
Step 2:
When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Wireless then click Advanced Wireless Settings.

4418-001.pngNOTE: If the screen on your router's web-based setup page looks different, click here.
Step 3:
The Advanced Wireless Settings window should appear. Here are some details:
4418-003.pngWireless-A Settings:
  • Authentication Type
    The default is set to Open System. For the Open System authentication, the sender and the recipient do not use a network key (wireless password) for authentication. For Shared Key authentication, the sender and recipient use a network key for authentication. If you want to use only a Shared Key authentication, select Shared Key.
  • Transmission Rate
    The default setting is Auto. The rate of data transmission should be set depending on the speed of your wireless network. You can select from a range of transmission speeds or keep the default setting, Auto. This will automatically prompt the router to use the fastest possible data rate and enable the Auto-Fallback feature. Auto-Fallback will negotiate the best possible connection speed between the router and a wireless client.
  • Transmission Power
    The greater the transmission power used, the larger the area a wireless network covers. To minimize the likelihood of eavesdropping by unauthorized wireless users, do not use more transmission power than necessary to cover the range needed by your wireless network. Try using the router at different levels of transmission power and determine how much power is needed to reach the wireless client, such as a PC or an access point that is farthest from the router. Then select the appropriate level, Full (Default), Half, Quarter, Eighth, or Min, from the drop-down menu. The default setting is Full (Default).
  • Frame Burst Mode
    Allows packet or information bursting which will increase overall network speed.
  • Beacon Interval
    This value indicates the frequency interval of the beacon. A beacon is a packet broadcast by the router to keep the network synchronized.
  • DTIM Interval
    This value indicates the interval of the Delivery Traffic Indication Message (DTIM). A DTIM field is a countdown field informing PC's in the network of the next window for listening to broadcast and multicast messages. The default value is set to one.
  • Fragmentation Threshold
    This value indicates how much of the router's resources are devoted to recovering packet errors. The default value is 2347 and should remain as such unless you encounter inconsistent data flow. In the event you encounter inconsistent data, only minor modifications are recommended.
  • RTS Threshold
    This value should remain at its default settings of 2346. Should you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications are recommended.
Wireless-G Settings:
  • Authentication Type
    The default is set to Open System. For Open System authentication, the sender and the recipient do not use a network key (wireless password) for authentication. For Shared Key authentication, the sender and recipient use a network key for authentication. If you want to use only a Shared Key authentication, select Shared Key.
  • Basic Rate
    The basic transfer rates should be set according to the speed of your wireless network and the value is set to Default. Depending on the wireless mode you have selected, a default set of supported data rates will be selected. The default setting will ensure maximum compatibility with all devices. You may also choose to enable all data rates by selecting All. For compatibility with products older than Wireless-B devices, select 1-2Mbps.
  • Transmission Rate
    The default setting is Auto. The rate of data transmission should be set depending on the speed of your wireless network. You can select from a range of transmission speeds or keep the default setting, Auto. This will automatically prompt the router to use the fastest possible data rate and enable the Auto-Fallback feature. Auto-Fallback will negotiate the best possible connection speed between the router and a wireless client.
  • Transmission Power
    The greater the transmission power used, the larger the area a wireless network covers. To minimize the likelihood of eavesdropping by unauthorized wireless users, do not use more transmission power than necessary to cover the range needed by your wireless network. Try using the router at different levels of transmission power and determine how much power is needed to reach the wireless client, such as a PC or an access point that is farthest from the router. Then select the appropriate level, Full (Default), Half, Quarter, Eighth, or Min, from the drop-down menu. The default setting is Full (Default).
  • CTS Protection
    The default value is set to Disabled. When set to Auto, a protection mechanism will ensure that your Wireless-B devices will connect to the Wireless-G Router when many Wireless-G devices are present. However, the efficiency of your Wireless-G devices may be decreased.
  • Frame Burst
    Allows packet or information bursting which will increase overall network speed.
  • Beacon Interval
    This value indicates the frequency interval of the beacon. A beacon is a packet broadcast by the router to keep the network synchronized.
  • DTIM Interval
    This value indicates the interval of the Delivery Traffic Indication Message (DTIM). A DTIM field is a countdown field informing PC's in the network of the next window for listening to broadcast and multicast messages. The default value is set to one.
  • Fragmentation Threshold
    This value indicates how much of the router's resources are devoted to recovering packet errors. The default value is 2347 and should remain as such unless you encounter inconsistent data flow. In the event you encounter inconsistent data, only minor modifications are recommended.
  • RTS Threshold
    This value should remain at its default settings of 2346. Should you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications are recommended.
NOTE: The features may vary depending on the version number of your wireless dual-band router.

I'm trying to find my wep key or port number, I'm trying to connect my PS3 to the internet.


When you purchased the router, you should have run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to configure the router, to set an SSID, to set an encryption-level (use 'WPA' not 'WEP'), and to set a password (WPA-key or WEP-key or pass-phrase).

Use those values that you used when you configured your router to configure your PS3.

Where is the wep key located on my virgin router


Connect your desktop computer to your Belkin router, and access the router's built-in web-server software. Then, run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to configure the router's wireless networking capabilities. As part of that process, you will be required to _create_ a "WEP-key" value. Use that value when configuring the wireless capability of your PS3.

Ip address wrong, showing 192.168.254.1


Hi,
Solution Overview
This article explains how you can avoid having to run the Wireless Configuration Utility or Wireless Setup Assistant (Macintosh) after making changes to the router's security settings. The need to change these settings can arise if users forget their network key/passphrase or router web server password or if you have security concerns.
Printer response to security settings changes
The printer will respond with a flashing orange (pattlnk_6172008_1844-orgblksml.gif) Wi-Fi indicator light after the following actions are performed on the network or router/access point (AP):

  • -A change to the Service Set Identifier (SSID) or network name.

  • -A change to the security type (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2 personal).

  • -A change to the security network key/passphrase.

  • -A hard reset of the router followed by entry of security values that are different from the original values.

  • -The printer is moved to a network (AP) that has different security values but already has installed drivers and created ports. NOTE: Port reconfiguration may be required in this case. Click here for instructions.

In order to rejoin (associate and authenticate) the wireless network (WLAN), the wireless client (printer) has to be reconfigured with the router's new SSID, security type, and network key. This requires connecting the USB configuration cable to the host computer and running the Wireless Configuration Utility or Wireless Setup Assistant to apply the new security settings on the printer's wireless network adapter.
Solution: Change the printer settings first
Change the security settings on the printer while it is still communicating on the network before making the changes on the router. Understand that this will cause a temporary change in the Wi-Fi indicator light from pattlnk_6172008_1952-tn_grnsolproof.jpg to pattlnk_6172008_1844-orgblksml.gif. After you have made equivalent changes on the router, the printer's Wi-Fi indicator light will return to pattlnk_6172008_1952-tn_grnsolproof.jpg.
Procedure: How to change security settings via the embedded web server
If you change your AP security settings frequently, this procedure is for you.

  1. Open your web browser application and enter the printer IP address into the web address field, i.e. http://ip_address.

  2. Click on Configuration.

  3. Click on Wireless.

  4. Enter the SSID, security type/encryption, and network key that will be used to configure the router.

  5. Click Submit.

Sir,
You are suggested to check the "VPI" & "VCI" values which are usually 0 of VPI and 103 for VCI.. if these values wont then you may make a phone call to the services center of your connection and ask them to tell the setting and VPI and VCI numbers.

I had a similar problem. Hit "Fn"+"F2" to cycle the wireless off then on again. Allow about 30-60 seconds to get IP and DNS info from the access point.
Then, using the network adaptor icon in the utility bar (on the bottom right), right click, select "all network connections". Click each network adaptor and from the "Connection Tab" Disconnect each adaptor. Then restart the wireless adaptor with the "Connect" from the "Connection Tab".
I'm assuming that there are no funny settings in the Properties which are preconfiguring the adaptor for a previous connection. If so remove any present values. Leave the connection set as DHCP as this is teh most common way that adaptors will get their settings from teh access point your attempting to connect to. Cheers.

Fortgot network password


How do I find out my Wireless key (WEP or WPA) ?

There are numerous ways to find out these values so I will cover a few.

Easy Solution (you should be so lucky)
Sometimes the value for the Wireless Key is written on the underneath of the router, look for SSID (this is the network name) and WEP or WPA key (called the encryption key)

Alternative Method
In order to find out your Wireless Network Key you must first use a cable to connect to your router.

Once connected check that you are connected to the internet by opening Internet Explorer , Safari or Netscape (in fact any internet browser)

The address or the router is usually one of the following values:-

http://192.168.0.1
http://192.168.1.1
http://10.10.0.2
http://192.168.2.1
http://192.168.2.254

Try clicking on each and see if you get a logon box popping up

If you do, that is the correct address for your Wireless router, note it down.

If the box has the username and password completed, then click OK

If there is no value for username try "admin" and for the password try one of the following "password", "admin",

Also try nothing for the username and "admin" for the password

Sometimes the value for these are written on the underneath of the router

Once the router page is displayed, look for an item called Wireless Settings.
Next see if a further option for Wireless Security exists.
The names of these items vary from Router to Router

Once security is displayed the SSID (Network Names) and the WPA or WEP Key can be found.

Once you have noted these values, unplug the cable and click on the following link
