SOURCE: Link light blinking

On these cable modems the link light is supposed to blink when you are connected to a router/pc. If you are hooking up a wireless router new you need to power cycle/reset your cable modem before you hook up the wireless router so that way it can refresh its ip address.

Conecting wireless headphones LC195L9A


How Wireless Headphones Work and How to Connect Them jabra_revo_wireless_image_1440x1440px_08.jpg?h=204&w=204Wireless headphones are headphones that connect to a device, such as a smartphone, stereo speaker, television, gaming console, computer, or other electronic devices without using a wire or cable. Wireless headphones work by transmitting audio signals through either radio or IR (infrared) signals, depending on the device.

From call centers to fitness centers, wireless headphones are used by millions of people every day for work and play. For example, wireless headphones are popular with gamers, since it frees you to move around without having to worry about a cord. People doing a workout at the gym or in front of their TV in the living room love the freedom of wireless headphones. They are also perfect for people who want to watch late-night television without disturbing others.

Wireless headphones work by connecting, or pairing, with the device you want to use, through a radio or infrared signal. Many devices use Bluetooth technology to make connecting easier for the user. Devices with Bluetooth technology can connect and exchange data over very short distances using radio transmissions.

A product with Bluetooth technology has a tiny computer chip inside that contains the Bluetooth radio, and software that makes connectivity between devices possible. So when Bluetooth-enabled products, such as a cell phone and headphones, are in close proximity to each other, they connect, or pair. This enables you to talk on the phone or listen to music without wires.

Connecting a wireless headphone differs depending on the device you are using, but it's easy once you know how. Here is a list of the most popular devices that people use with wireless headphones and how to connect them.

Connect Wireless Headphones to a TV

First, make sure that your base is plugged in and the headphone batteries are fully charged. Ensure that the headphones and television are in close proximity to one another. Turn the headset on. Go into setting on your TV and turn on Bluetooth. Find the headphones under Bluetooth devices in your TV and you should be able to hear the television.

Connect Wireless Headphones to an xBox 360

The xBox 360 supports two different types of wireless headphones, ones that have Bluetooth capability and ones that do not. The first method explains wireless headphones with Bluetooth capability.

Xbox 360: Headphones with Bluetooth

  1. Plug your wireless headset into the console to install the latest headphone drivers. You will need to be connected to xBox Live in order to do this step.
  2. Make sure that your headset is charged, which can be done by simply plugging it into the unit. If you charge your headset through the console, it will connect automatically most of the time. If they don't connect automatically, turn on your console first and switch the headset so that it is in xBox mode.
  3. Press the power button for two seconds until it flashes green. You should then hear a start-up sound, and when you hear that, press the connect button for two seconds.
  4. After you release that button, press and release the connect button on the console within 20 seconds or the connection will not be made. The green lights will flash three times to let you know the connection was a success.

XBOX 360: Headphones without Bluetooth Capability

  1. Make sure that your headphones are charged, which can be done by plugging them into the USB port of the console.
  2. Turn on the console and the headphones. After they are powered up, push and release the connect button on your console.
  3. Within 20 seconds, press the connect button on your wireless headphones for two seconds. You should now hear sound from your headphones.

Connect Wireless Headphones to the iPhone

Setting up your wireless headphones with Bluetooth technology is easy on the iPhone. Here's how:
  1. Find the "Settings" icon on your iPhone, which is normally on the home screen.
  2. Open and click on the "General" button.
  3. Then, hit the "Bluetooth" button and slide it over to turn the function on.
  4. Your iPhone should find the device once this is enabled and should show the device name on screen. When it does that, you will need to hit the "Pair" button in order for the devices to sync. You may need to enter a four digit password, which is provided with your wireless device.
  5. Once that is entered, hit "Connect" on your iPhone to complete the setup. Your headphones should now be working properly.

Connect Wireless Headphones to the PS3

  1. You will first need to register the headphones to the PS3 through the Bluetooth settings. Here's how:
  2. Go to the XMB home menu and select the "Settings" icon.
  3. From there, select the "Accessory Settings" icon, and from that menu, find the option that says "Manage Bluetooth Devices."
  4. If there is no current Bluetooth device registered on the PS3, there will be an option that says "The Bluetooth device has not been registered. Do you want to register?" You will need to highlight the "Yes" option and click the "X" button on your controller. If the pairing was successful, the device will show up on the screen.
  5. Next, you will see a screen that says "To register (pair), you will need to prepare the Bluetooth device. For information on preparing the device, refer to the instructions supplied with the Bluetooth device."
  6. Click on "Start Scanning" on the screen with your "X" button so that the PS3 can start to scan. Also, you need to make sure your headphones are in pair mode so that the PS3 will recognize the device. If the pairing was successful, it will show you on the screen and you just need to hit the "X" button to continue.
  7. You will then be asked to enter the pass code or security key that was provided with your wireless device. Use the keyboard that is provided on the screen to enter the pass code. Once everything is entered properly, a message tells you that the device has been registered.
  8. Next, go back to the "Accessory Settings" menu to access the "Audio Device Settings" menu. Select the "Input Device" option by clicking "X" on the controller. When the new menu opens, look for the proper microphone input that corresponds with your device. Once you find the right one, click the "X" button.
  9. Select the "Output Device" option to select the headphones. Once you search through the options that the system recognizes, click "X" on your wireless headphones to select them. You should now be set up and ready to use the wireless headphones and microphone.

Connect Wireless Headphones to an iPod

  1. jabra_revo_wireless_image_1440x1440px_14.jpg?h=444&w=444Make sure that your wireless headphones have Bluetooth capability.
  2. Access the "Settings" icon on the home screen of your iPod. Select the "General" option once you are in that screen.

  4. Be sure that your wireless device is in discovery mode so that the iPod can recognize it.
  5. Once you enable the Bluetooth on the iPod, it will list any devices that is recognizes. Simply click on your wireless device when the iPod shows it and click the "Connect" button. Your headphones should now be paired and working properly.

I have a portable wireless speaker model AWSBT7 will not go into the connect mode when pressing the button to sync up device I do not get the two beeps or the light does not flash faster


Hi Jerry, Are you using this method to pair your device?

Pairing
The Bluetooth-enabled device that you wish to stream audio to your speaker system must
fi rst be paired to the speaker. The process is simple, and in most cases the pairing process
needs to be done only once.
To pair your Bluetooth-enabled device with the speaker:
1. Make sure your device's Bluetooth is turned on. See the wireless and/or network settings
menu on your device to check.
2. If the speaker isn't already on, press the On-Off button to turn it on. You will hear a beep
to indicate the speaker is turned on. The indicator light on the back of the speaker starts
fl ashing blue.
3. Press and hold for 3 seconds the Pair button to enter pairing mode. You will hear 2 beeps
to indicate pairing mode is entered. The indicator on the back of the speaker starts blinking
faster.
4. Open the Bluetooth settings menu on your device. Select "AR SPEAKER" from the list of
devices available (you might have to scan for devices). If your device asks for a password,
enter "0000".
5. A confirmation screen will appear on your device once the speaker and the device are
successfully paired. The blue indicator turns solid blue to indicate successful connection.
The speaker is now ready for you to stream audio from your device.

I have a Motorola SURFboard Gateway SBG6580 modem. I want to use the wireless for my DS lite but it says that I need an WEP key, but I don't know how to enable it. Help!


Your wireless is set up with a password. You need to get that password before you can connect any more devices. From a computer that can connect to the internet go to 192.168.0.1. Then type admin for the username and motorola for the password. I believe from there you click Wireless then click Primary Network. You should see your wireless network name and password from there. I'm getting this from the modems manual here: http://www.midcocomm.com/_files/files/SBG6580.pdf
