DSL or cable? DSL you will only need your usernam/password combo for PPPOE, cable you should be able to just plug it in and go. set your router for DHCP and it will pull all pertinent info from your ISP's DHCP and DNS servers.

Need help connecting wireless router


To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways:-

  1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
  2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:-
In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.

2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.

This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
  • IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
  • Default gateway address (very important)
  • Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
  • Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser..
Hope this will help....Cheers..:)

I had compaq d310v yesterday i installed windows 7 .but internet does not connect.2 computer icon states that thier is no any connection,but i uses dsl


You may need to setup/ config your gateway ip address, and/or input a primary DNS address in your TCP/IP settings on your network properties. The gateway address should essentially be the ip address of your dsl router. The dns would be the same address.

To enable gateway and dns, however, you will also need to assign a static ip address to your computer. Which would be an address in the same range as your routers ip. EG, if your routers ip is 192.168.0.254, Then you could use any address Under 254, eg 192.268.0.105, Or 192.168.0.88, And so on.

Please reply to this posting If you require more clarification.

I post solutions/fixes on my site www.yama.co.za/forum Please take a visit if you can.

I cannot communicate with primary dns server 172.29.71.1 is there a way i can reset it automaticaly or manually


You cam try doing a power cycle. Turn off the modem, router (if you have one) and your computer. after 1 minute turn on modem first then router and computer. If you still can't communicate or ping the DNS it could be a firewall that is blocking it.

Have belkin wireless/modem router, was using aol but now with the utility warehouse using there uwclub.net service. They sent a thompson speedtouch fixed line modem which we had to connect to get on i.e.,...


Try using a dynamic ip address. I think you only use the static if having problems. Just read this.

A dynamic IP address is assigned to a customer’s modem or router, generally via a remote server (such as our own UWClub server). This provides the user with an IP address from an available pool of addresses every time a connection is made. This is the most common type of IP address for our broadband/Broadcall customers.

Thats off The Utility Warehouse page.

Netopia 3347-02; I cam connecting two computers cia the ethernet; the second computer keeps getting booted off. What can I do to solve?


I am looking for this fix right now, and one solution I saw but have not yet validated is this:

Go to your router settings in your browser (http://192.168.1.254/). Click wireless and enter your Wireless SSID as stated here. Now enter your WEP key on the DS. On the DS, choose not to auto obtain an IP address, and enter an IP starting with 192.168.1.*, less than 192.168.1.253 (for example, 192.168.1.228). Put in 255.255.255.0 for subnet mask. Now, here's where I made the mistake: You don't use the gateway as listed in your router settings, you use your router's IP address as a gateway (this is listed as local network IP address on the main page).
Now just put in your primary and secondary DNS servers as listed on main page, and you should be ready to go.
