Why will my HP Pavilion dv6000 not read my router, what do I have to do toget my card to read wi fi signals?


First of all you have to make sure that your wireless network card is turned on...I believe the power switch is right below the edge of your left hand (right in the front of the laptop). the light should turn from orange to blue. When it does, it will either notify you of existing wireless network or you will have to manually have to search for network.
In Windows XP, simply right click the network icon [located in your bottom right corner of your screen] and click "View Wireless networks". In Windows Vista, left click on the wireless network icon [same location] and click connect or disconnect to now available wireless networks. In windows 7, the procedure is similar to the one in Windows Vista.

With secured networks, you will need the network key in order to connect, in others you will have to have your Media Access Control [MAC] address added to a MAC filter list in order to allow you to access the network...
What ever the case, it all depends on 1] Ensuring your wireless network card is turned on 2] Your computer is set to receive an IP address automatically...
I hope this was informative

I have installed my belkin router but i forgot to type in a password is this necessary,if so how do i do that


Yes, your router should be password protected.

Belkin routers ship without a password, so after entering http://192.168.2.1 into your browser, click "login" in the upper right-hand corner, then just click on "submit" (leave the password box blank).

Once in the router, click on "system settings" in the left-hand margin, under "administrative password" leave the box next to "type in current password" _blank_. Then enter your new password in the next box and repeat it in the next box to confirm. Don't forget to click on "apply changes" then log out.

How do i get password for belkin router


Launch your web browser on the computer.
In the address bar, type http://192.168.2.1
Click login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit and you will be
able to login to the router.
In case you had set up an admin password and have forgotten the same, you will need to reset the router (By pressing the reset
hole with a paperclip for 10 seconds) and then login as stated above.

This will resolve the issue you are facing.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

I have just got a Belkin N1 vision wireless modem router. I have set it up and have it working ok on a Unsecure wireless network. But as soon as I try to secure the network. I get the following message...


Hi,

Right-click on the network icon in the bottom right hand corner of your screen, Press Connect to a Network. You should see your wireless network in the list. Before you secured it, you could automatically connect to it because it was unsecured. Now you will have to double click on it and enter the username and password you secured your router with.
Once you have done that, there should be a box for you to tick that says 'Automatically connect to this network'. Tick that.
Done.

Hope this helps

Can't get a linksys wireless G PCI adapter to connect to my belkin wireless g router


Alright, First thing is to sett up the router properly. How well experience in this are you? Do you know how to IP into it and set it up manually? do you just use the easy install disk? Do you know ow to set up the encryption key?

Im asking so i dont have to spend alot of typing, explaining something you may already know. If you dont though, its o.k. I will help you.


Typically you want to set the router up first and set an encryption key. Usually something that no one can geuss like ADMIN or PASSWORD or something easily guessed. Also you name your router, like " The Big Puff or My router or some name that no one else will have so you can easily distinguish your wireless signal from others. Default is LINKSYS and the default IP is 192.168.1.1 and the password is ADMIN.

If you flip the router upside down, you will see a spot that tells you this. Thats why you have to change it, cuz everyone knows it.

Also, you need to set the Router password too so that no one else can ip into it and change it on you.

Alot of the times, the setup disk will have a easy setup wizard that can make this easy for newbies.

You want to be sure to have a secure and functioning router. Once this is achieved, install the wireles adapter and drivers software.

You have two options, use windows to control the adapter or the belkins utility that came with it. whichever works best for you.

Now in the options you have to set up the connection or you can just findit,click and connect and enter the encryption.

If windows is running the show for the adapter, you can right click on your wireless icon in the bottom right corner and select, " VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

When it loads it will show all signals including yours if you set up the router right.

Yours should be the strongest signal as well.

Select it or double click it and windows will automatically try to connect and when it does it will ask for the encryption key that you gave it earlier when you set up the router.

Enter that in exactly with caps and lower case where applicable.

It should then connect.

The situation is similar when using the belkins utility instead except that its more graphically friendly.

All wireless devices are made to be used with each other and have the same FCC requirements and theoretically it should matter which brand you use, they should all be compatible if there of the same type. I.E. G or B.

Try this and let me know if you still need help.

Dont bw affraid to call linksys on setting up your wireless router. When i first started out and knew nothing, i called linkysys for help and the guy walked me through the whole thing. Same with Belkin, allthough belkin support was not as good.

6. Make sure Broadcast SSID is enabled.

8. Set a password in the Pre-Shared key section between 8-64 letters/numbers long-this is your wireless password, keep this safe as only you have access to this password.

Have Belkin Wireless G Router, how do I set up network to allow wireless lap top to access printer?


You have to add or share your printer to the network.
To do that go to the printer folder and select Add a printer (if you dont have any) or if you have one put the cursor over your icon printer and with the right bottom select "Sharing"
Your icon printer will appear with a small hand below and your printer will be visible on the network.

How to set up my belkin adsl modem with built in wireless router (8o2.11g/54 mbps) with my broadband connection?


There may be a set up wizard disk with the router so you can put in your broadband account details etc to get you running.

The wireless side of things will almost certainly require you to use a cable to connect you PC to the router and log in using internet explorer

Post the model number of the router so I can assist you in more detail
