Make sure your computers IP address is in the same range as whatever you changed the router to.

Need to turn on wifi for belkin router for desk top


Plug an ethernet cable from the router into the ethernetport of a computer and type in the router's ip address in the browser. For example the ip address will be something like 192.168.1.1

Once you have the correct ip address ( you can google your router'smanufacturer for the ip address if you don't know it), then the routers guiinterface will open up for you to configure the router. It will ask forthe user id and password. Most times this is the default password set bythe manufacturer unless whoever installed your router changed it. You canalso google your router's manufacturer for the default user id andpassword. In fact you could go to the router's manufacturer's website andlook at the manual for your router which will have the ip address, userid andpassword.

Once you are in the router you can go to the Wireless Settings and turn on the wireless and set a password for it.

Where i could find my wep key


It depends!!! On some modems/routers it will be listed on the somewhere on the device. AT&T places theirs on the their device for you.

If not, you can always plug an ethernet cable from the router into the ethernet port of a computer and type in the router's ip address in the browser. For example the ip address will be something like 192.168.1.1

Once you have the correct ip address ( you can google your router's manufacturer for the ip address if you don't know it), then the routers gui interface will open up for you to configure the router. It will ask for the user id and password. Most times this is the default password set by the manufacturer unless whoever installed your router changed it. You can also google your router's manufacturer for the default user id and password. In fact you could go to the router's manufacturer's website and look at the manual for your router which will have the ip address, userid and password.

Once you are in the router you can go to the Wireless Settings and Wireless Security to see the key.

Cant Connect to router


make sure that the network card gains an IP address from your router
, it should be configuerd for automatic IP then try this:
use ping command to check connectivity with router let us say the ip of your router is 192.168.1.1
the from command prompt use the command : ping 192.168.1.1
the router shoud reply , if so then make sure that configuration on your router is correct and no filtering roules enabled that puts your IP or MAC address in block mode.

I cant conect to the intornet. im using cable can u help mi.


First thing is check and see if you have a valid IP address (Start, run, CMD enter) type (IPCONFIG /All ) this will give you the IP address information. If result of IP address is 0.0.0.0 or 169.254.x.x then you don't have connectivity with your broadband connection (Bad Cable, Bad NIC, Other communication issue etc)
If no valid IP address, the 1st thing is to power off system, power off any router you may be using and power off the broadband modem. Wait 3 minutes. Power on broadband modem, wait a minute to let it reset, power on Router (If you have one) wait a minute for it to reset, power on system and test your connection. If no change, try a different computer at that connection see if it can access the internet. If another system works, it is likely the Network Interface Card (NIC) which on a Dimension 2400 is part of the motherboard (Buy a PCI NIC for $10)
If you have a valid IP address, boot to the safe mode with networking (F8 at boot) then see if you can connect, if so then your issue is software based (Firewall, security software, possible virus) If it doesn't connect then there could be issue with your TCP/IP protocol settings. If you can't connect in safe mode with net, reboot to normal mode, then right-click your local area network connection and click REPAIR and see if that doesn't resolve. If no change try an anti-malware program like Malwarebytes

My Belkin 4 port router has the same IP as my Modem so my router will not detect my DSL connection. Ive asked Belkin for help but all they send me is gobblygoop!


Hi!
I'm sorry to hear that Belkin did not help you with your problem. Let me help you with your concern instead.

Here's what we need to do:

Start by resetting the router to factory default - you just need to press and hold the rest button on the router for about 30 seconds (with the power on).

1.) Disconnect the Belkin router from your modem , connect a PC to the router (use the LAN port - either port 1 to 4).

2.) Open Internet browser - clear the address bar and type in http://192.168.2.1 , press enter. It will ask you for a password , do not type anything just press Submit. You should be able to access the router's web interface.

The router's web interface should like this (depending on the model #):

92853d1.jpg



3.) Go to LAN settings. Change the router's IP address to 10.10.10.1 (this will be the new IP address of your router) . Apply the changes. Once youapply the changes, you can access the router using the new IP - http://10.10.10.1.

4.) Reconnect your modem - router and computers. Reboot device by switching off the modem , router and PC.

5.) Power up the modem first. Wait for about 2 minutes, power up the router and restart your PC.

The steps I gave is applicable if your modem is not on bridge mode. If your modem is on bridge mode (meaning it requires a username and password from your ISP) - access again the router by going to http://10.10.10.1 and do the following:

Click Internet WAN > Connection Type and select PPPOE. Type the username and password from your ISP. Apply the settings. Reboot the modem and router.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

I want to diasble my router firewall and cant fiquere where its at


Disable router firewalls by logging in to the administration interface of your router and looking for a firewall section.

To log type http://192.168.0.1

The administration interfaces differ depending on the manufacturer and model, so your wireless router might not have a firewall section. If it does, click on that section and turn off the firewall.
Step2Forward a port. If the firewall is preventing an external computer from connecting to your internal client, you will need to forward a port to your client. Step3Find your internal IP address. Step4Click on "Start -> Run..." and enter "cmd" into the box. When the command-line pops up, enter "ipconfig" and hit "Enter." Find your IP address in the statistics that are printed out. Step5Refer to your software's documentation to find which port number must be forwarded. Step6Log in to your router's administration interface. Step7Click on "Port Forwarding" or an equivalently named section. The name of the section will differ depending on your router's manufacturer and model. Step8Add, on the correct port, a forward to your IP address. You will have to update this port forward in the future if your IP address changes. If your IP address changes often, ask your network administrator for a static IP address. This will fix your problem. Don't forget to rate my help! :-)
Thank you for using FIXYA!

I got d-link wireless router, how do i put a password on it so no one else can use it?


Access the Web Interface , by inputting the IP address of the router into a web browser , then navigate through to the wireless page , by clicking the links on the page , then when within that page choose the encryption type (WPA2 is the strongest) and then the key (password)


If you cannot find the IP address look in the manual that came with the router or

Click start

Click Run

Type cmd

hit ok

In the black DOS screen that appears type: ipconfig

hit enter

where it says default gateway the numbers preceding that is the IP address


Goodluck.

My computer keeps telling me I do not have an internet connection when I connect my router. I can unplugg the router and plug it back into my dsl modem and the internet again works. why won't my router...


More info would be helpful, but I am assuming that you have a router device that is not the DSL Modem, maybe a linksys, or something? Most likely what is happening is that the DSL modem is assigning private IP addresses, like 192.168.1.x, and the router is obtaining that IP address on its WAN interface, but is also configured for the LAN at 192.168.1.x, which is the same subnet, so it cannot route packets to the internet properly, as both interfaces have the same network range. Can you give me more info? I can try to walk you thru step by step.
Step 1. Verify current IP address when internet connection is working. (Go to a command prompt and type ipconfig, press enter, and document what your IP address is, also document the gateway address and subnet mask)
Step 2. Connect to the router instead of the DSL modem, do the same thing, document your IP address, gateway, and subnet mask
Step 3. Compare the two, your IP may be different, and the gateway may even be different, but see if both are trying to use the same IP range.

If they are the same, or close (the first 3 octets(set of numbers) are the same) then you will need to configure the lan side of either your DSL modem, or the router to be on a different IP address.

To do this will vary depending on the model of your router, so if you respond in the next few hours, I will still be online, and will try to assist.
