No connection I have 2 desktops (vista) 1 laptop-xp--just moved. everything worked fine in old house. Now Im having problem. If I plug laptop directly into modem its fine. But when I use router for all 3 it will work for 5 minutes then stop. It usually says no connectivity or something about an ip address. I went and bought a new linkys thinking it is the router, but it didnt help. Comcast wants to charge me to come to my house. any ideas?

After you unplugged your laptop from the modem and plugged in the router did you turn off the modem and turn it back on? This is a necessary step each time you plug your modem into a different device. The modem only remembers one mac address, and will only allow that specific mac address access to the network. So try it and let me know.

If you are connecting via wireless with the laptop, try disabling the firewalls on the other computers.

Looks like a common issue on routers and cable modem, well a little common.

the power comming fromt he modem (information pass) is too much for the internet port on the router to handle that it quits if the surge from the modem comes.

here is what you do:

get a longer ethernet cable to connect your modem and the router, may 10-15 feet ethernet cable, put it in a coil and tie a knot in the middle, just look at the picture below.

once this is done, you may access the router's page again and make sure that the MAC clone feature is enabled and perform a power cycle. power down the modem and the router, power up the modem first, wait for around a minute or until the ONLINE light is steady and then turn the router on. after that try your connection on the router.

Lose Internet connection on wireless network


Go to the router configuration and change the options so you could use both of them, there is an option says only one type of connection or both of them, change it to both, and everything will be fine.

Can't connect DSi with same security as comps


hello, yes i had the same problem, but i had it with many other computers, the way i solved it was going into the router settings and click the "restore default settings" then turned the router off for 15 seconds (for a fresh reboot) then when i had to set everything up again i got all my computers on the router and im able to add more without running into that same problem once again, or for a simpler solution try disconnecting the wireless on the computers and replugging them in.... that works sometimes as well

Cannot access the internet


try this :

1. it seems that the power outrage had caused your wireless settings to be restored to its factory settings .... so there is a need to reconfigure it again ...

"
the settings that are saved to my computer do not match" --- this usually pertains to the network settings saved on your laptop, if it is vista you must delete the old profile,it also applies for xp OS ....

VISTA :
>network and sharing center
> manage wireless connections
>under networks you can view or modify, highlight the old profile then remove

XP :
>netowrk connections
> right click on wireless network connection and go to properties
>click on wireless tab
>under preferred networks (box in the middle) highlight then remove

2. to check this do ipconfig on the cmd line
•check the default gateway if it is still 192.168.1.1 or 2.1 ( the default gateway is the rtr's address)
•open your browser, then type the rtrs ip
• leave the username blank, password is admin ( small caps)
• then you are in the set up page
• check the wireless tab, and very the ssid if it is still or the name of your network which you used to connect to ...
• just save the settings if you want to make changes

****** very impt : while doing this changes, your main pc or dsktop pc must be hardwired to the router ,, never make changes wirelessly coz the connection is very instable you will be kicked of everytime ..... ***********


GOOD LUCK!!!!!

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Lost Wireless Connection DLink G604t


So if your other 2 laptops (WinVista) is working then that means that the wireless on your Dlink is working fine. Its possible that its a problem with the settings on the winxp laptop. does your winxp laptop have a builtin wireless adpater? What does it say on your winxp laptop is you will try to view the available wireless network?

3 netopia 2247 routers daisychained


How far are you running the CAT5 cables from house to house?   CAT5e only has a solid range of about 150ft, and anything near 100ft is pushing it.  You may also need to use CROSSOVER cables when plugging routers into other routers. 
Also, who has the actual internet connection?  I'm assuming House 2 does.  One big problem is a router is your Gateway address.  And, if house 2 is the only one with a valid Internet connection (via DSL or Cable, etc), then the router in house 2 is the only "true gateway".  And, all 3 houses need to be in the same physical network (i.e. 192.168.1.0 range or whatever), and all computers should have the same Gateway address...which would be the IP address of the router in House 2.
What you really need in this situation is 1 router and 2 switches.  Put the router in House 2 and put switches in House 1 and 3.  That would be the best way to handle this problem.  It would also end your connectivity problems.
Cheers!
