Question about Routers

Router will not work in XP

I was using the Philips router SNA5630NS/05 in WindowsXP ok until I had to re-install Windows. The router will not work with Windows now.

I have tried with networking in control panel, but typing 192.168.2.1 does not now gain contact as it did previously.

I assume the router is configured correctly since it works ok in Linux, Fedora 9

How does your Winxp computers connect to the router (wired or wireless)? What is the IP address that you are getting? You might also want to check if the network adapter is installed properly under device manager.

SOURCE: router will not work in XP

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Might it be that when you reinstalled XP, some of the drivers were not installed automatically, more specifically, the Networking Card (either WiFi or wired LAN)?

Initially, pls confirm that the networking hardware/devices were correctly installed by going to your System Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button, expand Network Adapters. There should be no yellow or red markings on the networking device.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I put a windowsxp cd in a dell optiplex gx260-to replace windows 2000 and added memory to 512.The network adaptor driver i installed from dell doesn't work 3com or something like that.it had utilities...


on the drivers download page on the dell website it looks like the second one on the networking list is the one you should install, if that doesn't work you might like to ask dell for the right one.

thinking about the memory, to run xp properly you need a minimum of 1G ram, anything less and it will struggle on a fully updated system.

Hi,


It seems you're setting up a wireless network thru your router. The basic steps in setting-up a wireless connection applies to all brands of routers. Most softwares provided by manufacturers, both computers and routers, cause problems with Windows due to incompatibility issues. As of the moment, we need to use the Wireless Zero Configuration or the Windows Wireless Manager that comes with all versions of Windows.

Our philips wireless modem router SNa5630ns/05 when turned on today won't connect to the internet says its physically up but isp down should i reset it and try and reinstall it?


try to power cycle first by turning all devices off. then turn on the modem/router first then the computers. if you're still not getting connection, contact your ISP and check if there's no problem from their end before reseting and reinstalling it

hope this'll help you

ciao!
