Hi Gishmou,

You don't need the older (wired-only) router any longer. You can use the newer router for your entire LAN - just as you did w/ the older one.

"Wireless" routers are capable of both wireless AND wired connectivity. "Wired" routers, however, can only manage "wired" connectivity.

Perhaps this is where the confusion lies? Please, let me know if I am misunderstanding the issue you are experiencing.

If I understand your issues correctly, the 1st thing you'll need to do is take the older router out of the picture.

(01) Disconnect all connections from the old router and remove it from your network.

(02) Remove power from the new router and the cable modem.

(03) Connect the WAN port of the new router directly to the cable modem.

(04) Connect the new router (via an Ethernet patch cable) from one of the LAN ports of the new router to the computer you would like to use for setting up the router.

(05) Restore power to the cable modem and wait for approximately 1 to 2 minutes (or until you get a solid (always on) Internet or WAN led lit).

(06) Once you're sure the cable modem has established connectivity w/ your ISP (Internet service provider), then restore power to the new router.

(07) Give it a minute or so - it will need time to p/u the cable modem connection.

(08) Now, from the computer you have directly connected to the router via a patch cable, enter the router setup utility by opening a browser and entering the router's LAN IP address or by using the setup CD that came w/ the router.


IF the reason you were attempting to keep the older router along w/ the newer router was you needed more than the (usually) 4 or 5 LAN ports available on your new router?

If that is the case, install a network HUB or SWITCH and connect it (usually w/ a Cross-Over cable) to one of the LAN ports on your router. (If you choose to do this, we'll help you set it up and wire it properly.)

The older router you are using is quite possibly not capable of being set up as an "Access Point" (rather than a router). There needs to be one router then you can use an access point or a hub or a switch to increase the number of nodes on the network that will be supported.

If you'd like assistance finding the documentation and setup instructions for this router, please, let me know.

Please, post back here w/ any questions at all you might have and w/ the results of the steps you've taken. We'll continue to work w/ you until your network is up and running properly. @:)

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

3. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

The model of your laptop which you have specified carries with it a wireless receiver: Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 (802.11 b/g) Internal Wireless adapter. Other devices may be 802.11n compatible. So check the wireless mode in the router. Also make sure that the network name is also being broadcasted by the router. Finally check for any wireless devices like cordless phones, microwave ovens, etc.

Hope that this will help you resolve your query in the best way they can... Thanks 4 asking,

What is my network password


Only you or the administrator of the network will know that. It is stored in the router and must be entered to access the network. We cannot help you on that one. However, in the worst-case scenario, if you cannot remember the password, you can, if you know your router password, go into the wireless setup and create a new password. Remember then that all devices that connect to the network will need to have their passwords changed to remain connected. If you do not have the router password, then you may need to reset the router to factory defaults. This is done with the reset button that is recessed into the device, usually on the bottom or rear. Once that is done, you can use the factory default login information to re-configure the router to the network and create a new wireless password.

How do I fix my hp625 problem which ask for the password of its homegropuser$


Try this it comes from the windows help file on Windows 7
You should let Windows manage
your home network connections because it's the easiest and best way to share
files and printers.


But if you've previously set up customized sharing permissions on
your network following the procedures in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you want to maintain those
permissions when using a homegroup, you can choose to manage network connections
yourself. If you choose this option, you'll need to use your user account and
password when accessing other computers.


To continue using customized permissions, create or join a
homegroup, and then follow these steps:




  1. Click to open Advanced sharing settings.


  2. Click the chevron to expand the
    Home or Work network profile.


  3. Under HomeGroup connections, click Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers,
    and then click Save changes.

WILL NOT CONNECT TO LINSYS HOME ROUTER BUT WILL CONNECT TO WORK NETWORK


What do you mean it won't allow you to put in the home network passcode? When you click connect to your home network, does the password request come up for you to put it in? If not, you've got your settings wrong on the laptop

There are some configurations that allow you to put in the password and then are are some that allow you to use a pin. I bet you've got your connection in the laptop configured wrong.

To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK.

Wireless Network for my laptop


You must purchase a wireless router. I recommend Linksys. If your laptop has ethernet capabilities this will work just fine. (ethernet ports look like oversized phone cord ports) they are very simple to use and install in minutes. just be sure to make sure your network is password locked!
If this helps, I would really appreciate a FixYa! rating. If not, do not hesitate to contact me. I own a linksys wireless router, and can help you install it, if need be. Have a good day!

I'm pretty certain that you can only have 1 host per computer/per name for a network. So, if you want to change the laptop as host you will have to setup a network under the settings. Create a network password along with the network name for that laptop. (Unidentified Network) is a correct network name. It's just that you probably didn't change it to a specific name that you wanted it to be in the box. after doing this, you should be able to go to the other computer's and try to log onto the network domain that you have created. after that in order to get approval to access the network domain you have to enter the encryption key which is the network password. you have to do this to all non hosted computers. after completion, you should be connected to that specific network.

Now you want you're desktop to be the host. Well, from above do the same steps for the desktop. But, instead of (in example) to lets say your laptops network name is (Home). Well, you would have to make the host name on the desktop to be (Home2). then set the encrption key. Then go to all non hosted computers including the laptop that you made the first network. because this is a new hosted network created by you're desktop and connect to that network and then supplying the encrption key to be able to access the network. and you should be good. Just my 2cents. although this may not work because you may have to have to routers to be able to create multiple networks but, like you mentioned earlier you have a wireless on you other laptop you can use the setup for that wireless to make another network. Hope this helps and good luck ;)
