Question about ASUS WL-330GE 802.11b/g Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

I have set up this device as an AP and connected it to a adsl router, which also has another pc connected to it. I can connect my laptop to the AP and can even access the router, but am unable to browse the internet. I can access the internet on the other pc connected to the router. Any ideas?

    Thanks for your reply again. But i finally figured this out some time back. Should have updated this thread. It was a really stupid problem with the router which was provided by my ISP. They had modded the router such that 2 out of the 4 ports were reserved for VOIP and IPTV. I had tried 2 ports, so i never thought this would be a problem. But I just used the third port and it worked! There was no documentation provided for this by the ISP and i had to call them for this. I would never thought of that otherwise.

Search in google about how to set up a DHCP server for your router and clone the modem's MAC address, most routers have this option, the thing is some ISPs limit the use of internet to only one machine, by cloning the modem's MAC address in your router you'll make the ISP believe there's only one machine connected to the Internet. By setting up a DHCP server in your router you'll use only one IP to connect all machines using a private network, that should solve your problems. Try both alternatives, and see which one works.
Please check the legal limitations of this procedure for your country or state and have a nice day! ;)

    Thank you very much for your response, but my adsl router (wired) already has DHCP enabled. It is also the modem i.e. it is not connected to a separate modem, the telephone line (RJ45) plugs directly into the router. The router has NAT enabled and the WG330 doesn't. I can see the laptop that connects to the access point in the router's connected devices list, so i cant see why the ethernet cable connected PC can get internet but the device connected to the wireless ap cannot.

    Have you tried to set the default configuration for your wireless card/dongle?
    I had a lot of problems using NAT, try disabling it or setting your router to Bridge mode
    No other solutions come to mind now, It would be cool to be there and help you solve the problem personally, It's the kind of puzzles I like to solve

  • Alejandro Llorente Jul 15, 2011

    I reviewed this solution again and got a new theory on the internet connection problem, this must be related to VPI and VCI settings on the ADSL part of your router settings, google around for VPI and VCI settings for your country and phone company, log in to your router settings and set up the right VPI and VCI settings, save the settings and enjoy.

  • Amit Jul 15, 2011

    Thanks for your answer, but i already solved this problem. It turned out that it was a issue with the ISP provided router. They had blocked two of the four ethernet ports on the router for voip and iptv services, but no documentation regarding this was provided. Seems like an custom mod by the ISP since the router manufacturer website did not say anything like this. I just tried the third port and it worked. Had to call the ISP for that, would never have figured it out otherwise.

Hi there,

We call it intermittent connection or dropping connection.

Are there any other devices es which uses wireless connection or any electronic devices which is kept between the router and Epad?
This Device es causes a interference on the wireless signals which is sent from your Router to your Epad, Let there be at least 3 meters distance between your router and your epad.
Try if it works. If it is not working then Call your Internet service provider and ask them to change the ADSL mode to G.DMT instead of adsl 2+.

Post back if non of the above works.

Hope this helps.
Cheers!!

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet


This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

I have bought a wireless broadband router thinking It would enable me to use my laptop in wireless mode what do I need?


To use a laptop computer wirelessly a few things are required.1) make sure that the router/Access Point (AP) has the proper connections (i.e. power, data access such as ADSL or or other broadband internet connection, and good placement of the AP so that the signal goes to the locations that you want to get connected wirelessly. 2) Make sure that you have a power option where you want to connect wirelessly (either a good strong battery or a place to plug in the power cord). 3) Make sure that all appropreate security concerns are addressed (such as proper signal encoding to guard against someone using your connection to do something illegal, or that the signal does not overlap with some one else's to where there is interferance for you or them).

For specific help with making the connections or the specific software settings please post more details (computer operating system, router make and model, and connection details). Good luck and welcome to the unwired.

Adding a wireless connection to an existing wired network


Go out to you local electronics store and purchase a wireless router , or Wireless Access Point (AP) , this way you will create a wireless connection by following the instructions given when you purchase the Wireless AP .

Basically when you buy the Wireless router or AP you just need to plug your existing Modem/Router into the WAN port on the Wireless Router / AP and then some initial setup to configure the wireless settings and then the appropriate settings inputted on your PC.

Wireless connection


Hi,

There are a few requirements other than the laptop and the wireless card. You need to also have an Wireless AP/Router that must be connected to the modem that connects to your ISP. All your PCs must then connect to this router either using the wired/Ethernet ports or WiFi.

If such a device (WiFi AP/Router) already exists and is connected to your modem and your other PC(s) are tied up to it and can access the Internet, you need to install the drivers (in a CD that came with the wireless card) to your IBM ThinkPad. Thereafter, you need to configure your laptop's wireless networking to access the AP/router. Your AP/Router must also be configured to accept wireless clients.

Please post back with brand/model of your AP/Router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
