That means that your router does not have access through your modem. Connect your computer to your modem and check if you have internet. If you do not contact your ISP.

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????


Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

Thanks.

Did you try to install the drives first? try that. see if the laptop gets an IP from the router (by default 192.168.x.x).

I would also try to plug the laptop directly to the router and see if it works (with network cable plugged between the two)

My apartment receives its internet connection via ethernet from an external router. I had been using the Belkin F5D7231-4 as a wireless router (not configured as an access point) but recently it dropped...


You don't want to set a static IP address in your wireless router. You'll be connected to the network alright, but the IP address won't be recognized by the primary router. Thus, you'll see you're connected with only local access.

First and foremost, ensure that your Internet connection is valid. Plug the ethernet cable from the wall directly into your computer and test the connection. If you can't get it to work, then the problem is not on your end. Contact the agency in charge of the external router (e.g. apartment maintenance).

If your connection is fine hard wired, you may have bad data or a faulty configuration in your wireless router. I suggest doing a complete hard reset (there should be some instructions with your router on how to do it--some have a small flush mounted button that you have to press for a few seconds). Set up your wireless router as if for the first time. This should take care of your problems.

Local only on wireless, dont know how to change it.


I had the same problem, but then I found out that I was connected to the hamatchi server at the same time what somehow prevented me from using the internet. So just watch that you are connected to only one network, might help.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

I have a toshiba router and I am trying to hook up my d-link wireless broadband router with no success.


I don't think you can do this weressly and I don't think this is what you actually want.
hooking up a router to another router its probably something you may not need/want to do.
why do you need a router hooked up to another router?
the router allows you to get onto/comunicate with another network... (ex... you computers at home (local network) onto the internet (the other network)... do you have 2 local networks that you want to keep separate?, you can do that.. but it requires to know some basics concepts on subnetting. please explain in detail what you're trying to do

Log into the router so you can see the settings. Somewhere under WAN settings there should be something for you to "clone MAC address" click on that so the router clones the MAC address from the computer and this should work.
