Worked fine up till yesterday now wireless wont work


The wireless cards in the computers need to be configured with the router's wireless settings so the computers can connect to the wireless router.
Resetting the wireless router back to the factory defaults will not let the computers connect to the wireless router without configuring the network card in the computers with the router's wireless settings.
I suggest you configure your wireless router with encryption settings to prevent unauthorized persons accessing your wireless network and Internet connection and your computers.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

My printer is connected to another wireless network which is not the same as my laptop how do i connect it to the right one?


I`ll guess You`ll have to connect your PC to the printer with the use of a usb cable.
Then run the Lexmark software (Lexmark printer home) or similar (don`t know what you are using?)... Go to "settings"; and choose wireless setup utility. You`ll have to manually set the SSID (the wanted wireless network) and the WIFI password for this network. Hope this will help.

How do i reset our wireless network setting on my playstation 3?


On the back or side of your router their is a button that resets it to the original factory settings. Hold that button down for 5 or more seconds then release it.

Everything should be back to normal, also you will have to reconfigure that router

On the bottom of the router the user name as password might be------> user= Admin Pass=password

Laptop wont connect to wireless belkin router


If you connect the laptop wired, does it work correctly?
If your Wireless router has password protection, try resetting it to factory defaults, and connect it that way.  If you can connect with the factory defaults (with no security), it's likely an issue with the security on your router.
I'd suggest starting again. Reset to factory defaults, re-secure the network and try a different SSID name this time, and try again.

Wireless internet is not working after restoring factory settings


Oh, wireless Internet? You restored it? Did you install a different operating system? Or had you installed one before resetting? A change of OS may result in the deletion of particular drivers.

Go to the manufacturer's website. There, search for your model's support and download the drivers you want, for instance, the wireless network adapter drivers. Also, check your sound.

Power off your PC for a few moments then turn it back on to see if it will get a new IP address and connect again to the router.

Connected to Linksys Wireless G ok, laptop rebuilt, now can't connect


I'm a little confused about the status of your network adapter. Can you check to make sure your wireless network adapter(s) (wireless and physical) are set to "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" and to "Obtian DNS Automatically".

After this can you reconnect to the wireless network? Try the internet. If the internet still doesn't come up flush your temp files, close the browser and retry the internet. If it's still a no see below:

If so, can you try and do some simple "ping" diagnostics?

Open a command prompt:

1. Click on the START MENU and select RUN
2. Type in: cmd
3. Click OK
4. Type in >ping <ip address of wireless router>
Example: >ping 192.168.1.1
5. If your results are 4 "request timed out" then you have not established a wireless link yet. I would try and do a factory reset of the router and start over from scratch. A factory reset can be done by simply holding the "RESET" button on the back of the router for about 20-30 seconds.
6. If your results are 4 replies then you can run the next test.
7. Type in >ping 4.2.2.2
8. 4.2.2.2 = a public DNS server. If you get replies then your are on the internet, but it appears that name resolution is a problem. All this means is that when you try to go to www.google.com the DNS server that you should be contacted to find your way isn't able to tell you what the actual IP address is of www.google.com and so you go nowhere.
9. Provided you're set as a DHCP client (meaning your network adapter is set to "Obtain an IP address and DNS automatically" it means your wireless router (if it's the DHCP server - this is the default configuration) is giving you the wrong information for DNS.
10. I would contact your ISP for the correct DNS servers and make sure they are configured properly on the Router.
11. You can see what DNS servers you are actually getting from the Router if you run the following command from a command line: ipconfig /all

Hope this is helpfull.

Let me know if I can help any more.
