Question about Linksys Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Having an issue getting my laptop connected to the internet. The wireless networks appear and it shows that i am connected to the linksys, however i get a dns server issue when i try to go online. It shows excellent connection and 5 bars but I am still unable to get online. I have reset the router several times to no avail. It is a wireless B linksys older model, I do not have the exact model # on hand. If there is a basic way to check that would be great.

Hi,
I see that your having issues with you wireless connection, you mentioned that it is an old model Router that has a B wireless signal and that you are connected to the Router but you get an Error about the DNS having issues, try checking your Routers Network Key, make sure that your Network Key in the Laptop and Router are the same.
- to get in your Belkin Router you must type in your Default Gateway on you browser ex. IE, Firefox 192.168.2.1 then press enter after typing your Belkin's Default Gateway you should get a window prompting you for a user name and password
having an issue getting my - mvincentc_15.jpg

your user name would be admin and the password leave it blank then press enter unless you have changed the user name and password setting of your Belkin.
- check under wireless and security to see your Network Key/Security Key and copy what you have in you router and use it on your laptops network security to be able to access internet from your Belkin Router.
Hope this helps.

Linksys modem is being a pain in the *** cannot get internet


OK step at a time. Is the modem plugged into the correct place on the router. There should be 4 or 5 slots that are grouped together or appear separated from one particular slot on the router? Sounds to me like you are reaching the router but not getting internet access??? Does your laptop show being on a network with the Linksys? Make sure you have the router wired correctly. If you have time warner they have 24/7 phone tech support

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

Make sure that the modem is plugged in to the wireless linksys router. Plug in your desktop to the ethernet port of the router and check if you're able to get online. If you have a cable or dsl connection, make sure that your router is already configured to work with the modem. Your laptop should automatically detect the wireless network. Scan your wireless network by right clicking the wireless network icon and click on view available wireless networks. The default name of the linksys router is linksys. Try to connect and see if you're able to get online.

No internet connection on two desktops


Hi Tony, you think your laptop is connecting to your neighbor's wireless network. So try this.
1:Go to Control Panel, click on network and internet connections, double click NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Point your mouse to the WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS. It should show that you are connected(and it will show the name of the network that you are connected to). If you do not recognize the name of the network that you are connected to then you are connected to your neighbor's network.

IF YOU ARE CONNECTED TO linksys--unsecured wireless network, there is a chance that your wireless router is not functioning at the moment.

Try this first and i will be waiting if you have a follow up problem.


Good Luck
