To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.
NEW LAPTOP? Noticed a lot of post for same Laptop as same time.
If try to use wireless - you need to set-up wireless part of router and wireless part of laptop (Wireless Software).
Setup your network same it is on the PC.
Use Network setup wizard, if not know how in system manager, in the control panel.
Network Name is same on both, MYHOUSE is good.
The only thing different should be NAME, like SYS02,
PC would be SYS01, and IPaddress ( first 3 sections same as PC - Last section is indivual system - example follows:
PC = 192.168.1.40 then LT = 192.168.1.41
Suggest you hard wire laptop to router to verify network connection then work on wireless connection setup after you get connected thru hard line.
regarding connectivity of wireless network, you must double check ung router if there is a security password or properly configure your router. regarding to accessability to other computer and printer you must work share your network by so that you can access the other computer on your local network....
You don't need a router for the laptop it has a wireless card in it already, buy a router for your home PC and I would buy a linksys with cap 5 network cables and wireless connections so you can use the printer off of the home computer PC. If you have high speed Internet you can request for a router for free with a wireless and cap 5-cable capacity.
The message for an unplugged network cable, means you have enabled wired network, but the cable isn't there. No problem if you are connected wireless. To be able to access files on computers over your network, you need to enable filesharing for the desired directories or disks. Right-click the directory or disk, go to sharing and set the correct settings. Maybe you have to allow for network sharing the first time.
have a look at the book that came with the wireless router and see what is the ip address. it should be 18.104.22.168. type this into your home pc internet explorer address bar. you should get the router settings page. then go to the wireless setup page and you will find the wep key there
I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable. put the my network places on your desktop. right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties right click on wireless and bridge devices they are now sharing the same ip be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely. that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.
As you already have a broadband at your house, its going to be very easy for you to connect the notebook in the same network.
I would assume that right now your computer would be connected directly to a DSL/Cable modem.
What you should do at this stage is that you can buy a Wireless Router.
The computer that you are using at the moment might be a desktop and may not be wireless capable.
So your Wireless router would be placed right next to your desktop and the desktop would be connected using a wire to the same router.
Your router which is wireless capale will let your notebook also connect to the internet. I am stressing on the wireless as you mentioned that the notebook will be on a different floor.
Note :- I have given this suggestion assuming that the notebook you have bought is wireless capable. If it is not than you will have to pull a wire up to the other room and you can buy a normal router as well.
