Make sure all the computers wired and wireless are in the same workgroup.
To share files across all the computers and laptops on your network then -
All the computer and laptop in this network group must have their hard drive or folder/s set to SHARED (a hand symbol will be placed on these folders that are shared).
If there isn't a secutity problem then these folders and easy of file sharing then do not setup users and passwords on these folders.

I can not get internet access to my router, I have internet access but only by directly connecting my desktop to the modem. The modem will not send internet access to my new router.


I understand that you are not able to go online through the router WNDR3400. Please perform the below task to reset and reconfigure the router:

RESET:

With the help of a paper clip, press the reset button on the back of the router for 20 seconds (please refer to the label on the bottom of the router for reset button location). Release the reset button after 20 seconds and turn off the router. Turn the router on after few seconds.

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights to come on and then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
2. Access the router's GUI by typing http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.


Please revert back for any further clarification.

Error:111 No internet connection error followed the exact instruction multiple times and same error. Help please and thank you in advance.


John:
Most likely you will need to disconnect the power cord from your modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order to clear the MAC address of the computer/device that was previously connected to it.


After the modem has been unplugged from power for 15 to 20 minutes, plug it back in and it should then recognize the router as its new MAC address to assign an IP address.


This will probably restore your access to the Internet.

I have a bellsouth powerline eth adapter 9640...We have moved into a new office building and I don't know how to make the new router talk to the adapter.


Hello,
I believe you should be able to enter the configuration page of your router.

If yes, then follow these steps:
1.) When you get to the configuration page, select the place where the LAN has to be configured.
and Select the router to be DHCP, that is, to distribute IP-Adress dynamically to the network.

2.) After this, get a switch, an unmanaged switch (i.e just a normal switch), and connect your router to it using a straight-through cable, on one of the ports.
On the other ports, connect your PCs.

3.) On your PCs, go to the network adapter and right-click on it then go to properties, then inside the column, select TCP/IP Config and select the "Obtain IP Address Automatically". Do the same for the DNS Server too.

4.) Repeat the same thing for ALL other systems connected to the Switch.

5.) Now, after all these, create a network connection setup and give them all the same Workgroup.
Remember to select that "All the systems connect directly through a Switch" when you are setting it up.

6.) Next, restart your systems.

This should make your system ethernet adapter connect to your router automatically.

In case you are using Vista, what you just need to do after Step 3 is to right-click on your "my computer " icon, then properties, then Advanced System settings, Then click on Computer name, Then select Change.

On this "Change" page, you can just type the name of your workgroup and select OK, then restart your system.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem.

Hope it helps.

Goodluck

My internet keeps disconnecting


It sounds like the wire from your house to the isp switch is faulty you should probably call them down to fix. Or it could just be the modem are you using the same modem for both computers? If so then that's probably the problem.

No internet on Wireless home network despite ''excellent'' signal


When Windows Wi-Fi utility reports available wi-fi networks, does yours show up? I would imagine so, if you're being prompted for the key, and you entered it. So, you should be connected to the LAN at that point.

Then it is a question of connectivity. Using "My Network Places", see if you can detect the other computers on the Local Area Network. If they don't show up, but all indicators say you are connected, right click on My Computer, then Properties. On the popup box, you will see "computer name", and beneath that, "workgroup". Make sure that computer is in the same workgroup as the rest of the network. If not, the bottom button will allow you to change the name of the workgroup.

If you can see the other computers on your network, but you just can't reach the internet, take a look at whatever firewalls you are running, and make sure that PC isn't being blocked by one of them. An easy way to check is to temporarily turn all of them off, and see if things start working.

Also, if you can access your hub (using the web interface), check there and see if the Dell desktop is showing up as a connected device at the router.

I would almost bet it is a workgroup issue, but if it isn't, let me know. There are several other things we can take a look at.

Cheers
Nick

Wireless router problems


your computer is only connected to the signal coming from the router that's why it's saying connected but it seems that your router is not properly configured to provide internet access since your dns server is the same as your default gaetway. it could be that the your router is not in sync with the modem.
- if it's working before, tyr to power cycle everything by turning all the devices off then turn on the modem first, wait for all the lights on the modem to turn on then power on the router and the computer.

- if the router is for initial setup, kindly provide me you ISP, brand and model of the modem and how you connect the modem to the router and tell me if how you access the internet directly from the modem.

2 Eth Cards one for Internet & one for LAN


First of all, I would really recommend you to buy a Cable/DSL router. It is quite cheap, usualy more secure, much easier to configure and troubleshoot. Also, it does not require to have one PC up and running all the time, hense saving energy. Do you know that a PC running 24/7 may cost between 60$ and 100$ in electricity annually? This is more than the cost of a basic router!

But, since your question is about sharing your Internet connection with a PC, here are some guidelines. I will assume here that you are using Windows XP.

On PC1:
1. Connect the modem to Eth0 in the PC. Do not connect anything in the USB port of the modem.
2. Make sure that the link lights are lit both side. If they are not, you may need a cross-over cable (this is usualy not the case)
3. Configure Eth0 to get IP address DNS automatically
4. Disable (uncheck) all protocols except TCP/IP on Eth0.
5. Run the Network Setup Wizard (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard) and follow the steps.

On PC2:
Simply run the Network Setup Wizard (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard) and follow the steps. Specify and you Internet connection is through a Home or LAN network.

That should do it.
