I have a small home computer network that uses an Apple Airport Extreme as the wireless access point. My Sony Vaio (Windows XP) desktop is where I have my local area connection and was the first computer...


Hi there, you should reinstall the drivers for the wireless network adopter for your Sony computer. You need to go to the website of the wireless adopter manufacturer and choose your model of adopter and download and install the drivers for the wireless adopter.Please feel free to ask me any question about this problem.

Share Your Internet Connection with More Than One Computer- The Easy Way


Here is a simple way share your home internet connection with more than one computer. This will work for both wired and wireless and doesn't require alot of technical or computer skills to accomplish. I'm sure there are other ways, but if you're looking for a simple repeatable setup, here it is.

If you've got a dsl connection through a dsl modem, this TIP will work for you.
If you've got a cable modem, this TIP will work just as well.

Here's a list of what you'll need.

  1. Dsl or cable modem that works on your system and you can access internet with one computer (If you're using the internet, most likely you've got this already).
  2. Wired (Ethernet) or Wireless Router (wifi routers have 4-6 ethernet ports also).
  3. For Wired: Ethernet cable to connect modem to router.
  4. For Wireless: Wifi compatible computer or wifi card for your computer (follow manufacturer's instructions for proper install).
Procedure:
  1. Turn all components off. This includes anything on your existing network- computer, modem, printer and any router you may currently be using.
  2. With all power off, connect an ethernet cable between your modem and your new cable/dsl router(wired or wireless).
  3. Turn on the power to your new router only and let it boot up completely.
  4. Turn on the dsl/cable modem and allow it to boot. Since the router was booted first, the modem with recognize the router's MAC address (ethernet numerical address) and connect that address to the internet.
  5. Connect all the other components onto the router with the ethernet cables as needed and turn on the components- no particular order is necessary after the router and modem are booted. Your router will assign MAC addresses to all the ethernet components. Once the MAC address is assigned, your computer should work correctly with the internet and shouldn't drop out when the second computer is turned on.
  6. For wireless connections, boot up your computer with the properly installed Wifi card, airport card and allow it to "find" your router. Once you get confirmation of the signal, you're good to go.
Following this procedure will allow your modem, your router to use their designed software to connect you without a bunch of programming. You will actually enjoy having more than one computer sharing an internet connection.

Remember this procedure and follow the steps again if you lose power and have to reboot your network.

Just got a new router (motorola) and airport will


Check your connections:

DSL-modem to telephone-jack (or cable-modem to cable-jack).

Ethernet cable from DSL-modem (or from cable-modem) to WAN port on your router.

Ethernet cable from LAN port on router to WAN port on your Airport.

Cut the power to the Airport, and then plug it back in, so that it restarts.

1) Are you sure you're connecting to YOUR wireless network? From my own house, I can access 5 different wi-fi networks, 3 of them unsecured. I've even logged into two of them, unintentionally.

2) Check all of your cabling connections that they are tight and
secured. This includes the cables from the wall to your modem,
between the router and modem, and from the router
to your PC. Ensure that your LEDs are not lit Red or not at all.

3) Ensure that you are using Ethernet cables and not telephone
cables between the router and PC. Ethernet
cables use a wider RJ-45 style plug using 8 wires where
telephone style plugs use the smaller RJ-11 style plug using 4 to
6 wires.

4) Ensure that your Ethernet adapter is enabled. Check the System
Tray at the bottom right of your display to see an icon that looks
like a monitor. You can click on this to see the status of
your Ethernet adapter. Also in Control Panel > Network and
Dial-Up Connections, you can examine the state of your Ethernet
adapter.

5) Firewalls. Your desktop firewall(s) may be blocking your internet access. Check them.

6) You may not be completely blocked (only web traffic - port 80 - blocked). Go to Start > Run and type CMD. At the DOS prompt, type ping 192.168.1.1 (should be the default IP address of your router). If you get a response, your PC is talking to the router. If you get "timed out", then they are not talking, for some reason. If successful, try pinging an external address, something like ping www.fixya.com, and see what happens.

Airport has signal


The airport has a wireless signal but its not supplied by your provider. In order to use wireless at the airpport you have to pay their provider too.

Your system can receive and send to the wireless network in the airport but usually when you have connected to their wireless network, once you open a browser (IE or Firefox) it will provide you with a sign up page where they want you to pay typically $9.99 for 24 hours of use of their wireless network, which you sign up for with a credit card.

So you should be able to recieve that page but you can't access the rest of the internet unless you pay them for access.

Sorry

Network switch


Sounds like you know what you're doing... but.. based on what you've typed..

You need to make certain the comcast cable modem is plugged into the seperate port on the back of the router called WAN and not next to the other LAN connectors.

The network is seperate from the internet. The router acts as a firewall and shares the WAN with the LAN internally and automatically.

I assum that you have one red light on WAN.. and three green lights for LAN..
