I have wireless internet via modem, have a wireless router to allow my laptop as well as the home desktop to be on internet at same time, how do i setup the router with my modem and both pc's?


You don't need the modem. You plug the router into the PC and install your ISPs software (if any) and then open up a browser window and underneath the router on a sticker it will give you the address to put in and the username and password to access.
Set up should be easy but you can enable wireless from there (if it's not already on) and then the rest of your devices (provided they are wireless enabled) can use the router wirelessly one you enter the password on them.

How do i connect my 433i to internet wireless


Generic comment

Your question relates to a Home Based situation???

If your e-machine is wireless capable, you can enable this feature through the network settings in the control panel. You will of course need a wireless router and it will have to be connected to a broad band connection.

alternatively, if your machine has a ethernet port (looks like a phone jack only bigger, you may want to get a ethernet cable and connect directly to your modem or router.

I hope this helps you

Cannot enable wireless on my Acer Aspire 5612WLMi


First, does the modem show up in the device manager (without an exclamation mark or an "x". In other words, does the computer see the card and is it not reporting any problems.
Second, do you see the wireless connection when you go into My Network Places and Network Connections?
Third, does the wireless connection icon appear in the system tray?

Do i need a network adapter to plug in to a new compaq f765 laptop to enable a wireless internet connection?


According to the specification of your laptop it has built in wireless adapter so there is no need to install or purchase one. If your having problems getting a wireless signal from your router check if the wireless button/radio/switch is enabled/turned on. Usually its on the left hand side near the bluetooth switch or Fn+F2 will do the trick.

Have philips wireless modem from talktalk but dont have installation disc. need to install mamnually


I think this is a wireless router, and therefore does not need an installation disk.

all you need to do is connect to the router (using a lan cable if you cannot connect to it wirelessly) the default IP address should be 192.168.2.1 type this ip into IE you should get a configuration page and then you should then be able to configure the rest of the settings yourself

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)


ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.

Wireless router setup


is the problem that "nothing coming from the modem to the router"
if the router has more than one Lan port try the cable from the modem to the router, in the first lan port or the last port.

if its a wireless problem,ensure wireless is enabled on the laptop and the router,if you set up a security key ensure that it is put into the laptop wireless setting

sometimes you need to turn on the modem first then turn the router on after a little while to sort the ip address out before trying to connect the laptop, in the first instance.

hope this is of some help but more info would be good

good luck

D-link router DI524 using next G external wireless modem


You can purchase a usb wireless dongle and attach to the PC. From then onwards you can set up a wireless network without connecting the usb cable for the router. The dongle will enable wireless capabilities on the pc. The only thing left is to have all devices running in the same workgroup.
