Replace the cord or you may have a faulty nic card. this seems to happen to me quite a bit since I am in the IT industry. If your nic is "onboard" the mainboard, they are prone to fail or stall out without warning or reason.

Here is a good test. Unplug the computer (yes phsically unplug it, then press and hold power button for 10 seconds. This discharges all the capacitors on the mainboard, which seems to fix alot of problems I come across with hardware, especially nic cards or onboard nics.

Now turn it back on. You could be jacked in to a faulty port on whatever the other end is plugging into as well. It's hard to tell with the limited info you posted.

Laptop died and now I cant connect my desktop with the belkin usb adapter. It just keeps saying aquiring network address.


Use the Ethernet cable to verify the router or modem is working and connects to the Internet. If so, then check your wireless adapter in the desk top through device manager - it should detect the Belkin. Also, verify you are entering the correct WEP keys to access the wireless connection to the router or modem - sometimes it gets typed in wrong.

I need to know how to hook up a westell versalink ? i dont have directions & i have a dial up connection on my desk top . do i need a server ? i have no idea what to do !!


In order to setup the versalink you need an active DSL account, a phone line cord, a phone jack, a pc or mac, and an ethernet cord or wireless ethernet card. Plug in the phone cord to the phone jack and to the DSL port on the versalink- once the DSL light is solid, plug in the ethernet cord to the computer you have, or enter the wep key on the bottom of the modem into the wireless manager for your system. At that point, if you need further assistance in getting online, contact Verizon or Bell (whichever is your DSL provider)- they can and will walk you through setting up the versalink to connect to the internet.

Switching from desk top to laptop


You should only have to take out the ethernet wire from the desktop and plug it into the laptop (the one that looks like a big phone cord). However, depending on the connection you may need logon information for the broadband service provider.

Help setting up my home network.


If your printer only has a usb cord than u will want to hook it up to one of your pc's and set it up as a shared network printer. If it has an ethernet port you can hook it up directly to a router or switch.

PS to set your printer as shared goto ControlPanel > Printers > Right click on your printer > Click Sharing... Set it up to have a name you'll reconize and you should be good togo.

Getting wireless computor and router back on line with desk top computor


1. Disconnect power from your modem and router
2. Connect an ethernet cord from your modem's ethernet port to your router's Internet or WAN port.
3. Connect another ethernet cord from a port on your router (labeled with a "1" above it).
4. Connect power to your modem and router.
5. I'm a little unsure about how you plan to connect your wireless computer to the router. The router you selected when you created this question is not wireless-capable.

If your router is wireless-capable, go to the wireless computer. Follow the instructions for your operating system below.

Windows XP

1. Right-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop, and select Properties.
2. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection.
3. Right-click on View Available Wireless Networks.
4. Double-click on your network from the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).


Windows Vista

1. Click on the network icon on the lower-right of your screen (it should look like two computers with one behind another. It might have a red "X" over it.)
2. Click "Connect to a network" (it also might be labeled "Connect or disconnect")
3. Double-click on your network from the list (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name.

Mac OS X

1. Click on the AirPort menu in the upper right of your screen (it looks like "("s turned on their side).
2. Click on your network in the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).

I'm a little confused how to install this router I just bought. Model #wrt54g2. do I put the cd into my desk top which is already connected to the internet or do I install the cd in the new laptop I just...


Hi sheena -Is your desk top hooked up throgh the router? If not, plug your modem into the wan port on the router. The router should have come with a couple of short cables, most likely blue and yellow. Use the blue to connect your modem to your router. You can check the manual just to be sure. Use the ethernet cable that had been connecting your desk top to your modem, and plug into one of the wired ports on the router. I imagine you'll be using wireless for your laptop. Make sure that it is on. Put the cd in your desk top and run from there. Follow the directions. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. If this solves your probleb PLEASE rate this as fixed. Remember. Need help? Just holler Sheena.
