the number ports are the actual ports at the back of the router where you will plug the cable to connect your computer directly to the router.

to find the network key for your wireless connection, you need to connect your computer directly to the router and access the setup page of your router. You need to go to the wireless settings and get the wireless network key from there.

Fan does not work on 2003 hyundai tiburon

Radiator fan or AC fan? If its the radiator fan, you need first to check if its motor us OK. You can do this by hardwiring the electricl plug directly to the battery. Motor should run. If it doesn't, then this motor (fan) needs replacement.

If the motor runs fine when hardwiring, then you should have the car scanned for error codes. It is probably that the ECT (engine coolant temp sensor) is bad, thus the ECM never gets the signal "hey, I'm getting hot, turn on the radiator fan!"

I've replaced and re-soldered the DC jack twice and it keeps coming loose after a couple of months of use. Is there anyway to hardwire the power adapter cord directly to the motherboard? More to the...

I'd advise against hardwiring the ac adaptor to the motherboard, as this can cause sparking and burning of the board if it ever was to work loose. To effect a better repair, you might want to consider packing the edges of the jack port with some form of epoxy resin which will hold the DJ jack socket in place. There is a good product used by plumbers that you mix like putty and apply, which avoids mess and does not smell.

I recently bought asus lap top (N53JN-SX098V) could not connect to the internet thriugh wirless, I have Netgear router could ypu please let me know how to fixed

- first make sure the driver is properly installed by right clicking my computer > manage > device manager > look under network adapter
- second make sure the wireless is turned on (there should be a small light below the touchpad with a antenna symbol.)
- third check which utility is used to connect to the wireless network (if the computer is using the built it one to windows or a third party wireless utility. you can usually check this by checking the icons on the bottom left hand corner of the screen. if you have more than one icon for the wireless network that usually means you have a utility that is controlling the wireless)
- try to connect to the wireless network using the wireless utility (you need to know the SSID or network name and if the network is secured you will also need the pass key or pass phrase.
- If you dont know the wireless key and SSID you can check the router itself by hardwiring to the netgear > opening a browser > on the address bar type in the gateway address (you can check this by opening a command prompt window start>run>type cmd and typing in the command ipconfig in the command prompt window, the default gateway will be listed),

Earlier this evening I was trying to add my son's laptop to our wireless network. I was able to do so by hardwiring into the router. But when I went to go back and use my laptop that we always have been...

A couple of things:

1. make sure that the wireless adapter is enabled - under NETWORK CONNECTIONS

2. for now at least just set the configuration to "obtain automatically" and make sure the
gateway number is the same as your router... ie

3. Go on your router (via web interface... see manual for instructions) and make sure that DHCP is enabled

then... go to RUN and type in cmd a black window with text in it will pop up and a cursor will be flashing in it. Type ipconfig and hit enter (some windows versions "winipcfg" instead) and see what it is showing for your ip address. It should be for IP address.

Double check how you have the wires in the router. Some wifi adapters perfer to use their own software to configure the first time...

Do i have to hardwire my Sony HDTV to my router to get it on my network, there is no mention of hardwiring in the manual

hi Steve
2 things to check. Is there an ethernet socket on the back of the TV? is there any mention of connecting by wireless? Chances are that if it connects by wireless there will be instructions how to do it as it won't be simple.
I think you'll find an ethernet socket on the back and then it will probably just work by plugging it in.

Problem connecting to router

Log into the Belkin router and make sure that the DHCP services are running. If it is, and you still are not getting addresses, perform a factory reset of the router. There is a link in the web management console to do this.
