Desktop computer has connection but other 3 laptops cannot connect to the internet. On router, internet light and wireless light are blinking. In addition 1 also blinks on and off. Please help. This has been an ongoing problem.
Re: No internet connection with laptop computers in home
If your Desktop computer is hardwired to the router and your laptop computers can't connect wirelessly, it could be your wireless computers are not synchronized with your router by not having the same settings as the router.
You can use the desktop machine to access your router web interface (setup page) to check the wireless settings such as SSID (Network Name-> Name of your wireless signal shown on your laptop computers), channel and security (wether it is WEP or WPA encryption)
The channel and network name will be automatically detected by the wireless computers. If you have an encryption/security on the router, you need to type the password on the wireless computers for them to authenticate.

The setup disc for the router only needs to be run once when setting up the router to work with your internet provider and modem/router. You can try putting the disc in your desktop computer and reconfiguring the router.
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the Desktop/laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. 6.Note router name you are connecting to.
your laptop is able to go online using WI-FI. desktop is connected to theb router but not able to go online. Do you see the port light on the router ? check the Ip address on the computer. Check if there is any static IP address on the computer. Click here for more information about the router and network
your desktop can also go onlie using the wireless belkin router,so this router will now act as a distributor,you need to setup the router between the modem and the computer that is wired,i hope that when you say modem it is the one provided to you by your internet service provider,what you need to do is to conect the modem to the router and the router to you desktop computer,you desktop computer will go online using the wired connection to the belkin rotuer and you laptops will use the wireless connection..
Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.
You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup? If so that is more then likely your problem.
I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.
The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is: 1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers 2. Plug modem into router 3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now) 4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set, 5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set 6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router 7 Try to surf the net. 8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.
If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should. If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.
Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
Step 1 - If your laptop contains an ethernet port for a wired connection -- connect it to the router using a wire. Try to use the internet -- if it works we are assured the router to the internet is correct.
Question 1 - Please respond to this with the make and model of your laptop and if you have one the make and model of wireless adapter for use with the computer.
