Question about Computers & Internet

7 Answers

I have loaded the software for a WRT54G2 on the new desktop. As instructed the data for setting up my laptop was saved to a jump-drive and installed successfully on my laptop. When I try to get online with the laptop, I get a "server not found." The icon in the lower tray of the laptop says it is connected to an unidentified network which is named ournetwork. Ournetwork is the name I gave our network when I installed the router software on the desktop. The icon does not have a red x in it, but there is something on it that looks like a yellow rectangle with a black exclamation point. When I right click and select Network and Sharing Center I get my laptop with a bar to the network icon that has the yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. The network is labeled as unidentified network. The bar from the network icon to the the internet has a red x in it. I previously sought help prior to buying a new desktop when I was trying to install the router on the laptop and the wireless on the old desktop. The problem then turned out to be that the WRT54G2 router wouldn't interface with OS's older that XP. That reference # was 080802-020027. This situation is entirely different, so I don't know that referring to the old contact will be helpful.

    The problem sounds simple; I'm sure it is for you. I have no idea what the WEP/WAP ios key should be and I have no idea where to find it. I do presume you are talking about changing something on the laptop.

  • r3dbon Aug 29, 2008

    May I back out of this service I subscribed. If I couldn't understand the first answer, how in the world am I to understand the second? Good Grief!!!!!!!
    I am on the desktop which is connected to the router that is connected to the incoming phone line. It's working. what I want is for the laptop to work.
    If this is the nature of the service, I do want out; so please tell me how to back out. It ain't worth it. If you can't let me back out, please ask a suervisor to contact me.

  • r3dbon Aug 29, 2008

    I don't understand how or why it is not connected properly. I installed it as directed using the CD that came with the router. What else can I do? The yellow cable is in the yellow slot on the router and the yellow slot on the modem; the blue cable is in slot one of the router and the ethernet port of the desktop. This message will go through the router and reach you.
    I have no idea how to change the connection to make it any different. Is the problem the router?

Did you set - NETWORK SET UP WIZARD on the PC 1st
Then it will prompt you to follow the same direction as the lap top
It is alway recommend that you use the newest OS on the system that you are using for the server/host computer.
agter you have set up the network on the PC and Then you need to do the same as the lap top
The only thing is make sure you select that you wil be connecting through and another computer for you network

    NOW THE LAPTOP SHOULD BE ON THE NETOWRK
    BUT NOW YOUR ROUTER IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE CONFIGURED TOO> BY NOW YOU SHOULD HAVE ALL THE INFO TO CONFIG THE ROUTER>
    NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU NAME YOUR LAP TOP AND PC WITH DIFFERENT NAMES SO THE NETWORK WILL ID THE CORRECT PC TO CONNECT WITH

If you can go online wired to the router, please do the following steps:

1. Open Internet Explorer. On the Address Bar type http://192.168.1.1 and press enter.
2. It will prompt you to type in username and password. By default there's no username and the password is admin but if you changed it during the initial setup, please type in your own password for the router.
3. When you have the router setup page opened. Click on WIRELESS tab. Click on Manual then change the Wireless Channel to 11. Make sure the SSID Broadcast is set to Enable then click on Save Settings.
4. Go to WIRELESS SECURITY tab. Please double check the Security Mode. If the Security Mode is WPA-Personal, get the Shared Key/Passphrase (write it down on piece of paper). If the Security Mode is WEP, get the WEP Key #1 (write it down).
5. Now try to connect to your wireless network. Right-click on the wireless icon at the system tray and select Connect to a Network. You should see your network there, click Connect. It will tell you to type in the network key which is the WPA key or the WEP key tha you wrote down then click connect. That should fix your wireless connection.

    The solution that I posted needs to be done using your desktop (Steps 1 to 4).
    The Step 5 should be done on your laptop. Sorry for the confusion. Please give it a try again.

Seems the router is not correctly setup or connected to the internet - dsl modem.

Connect the dsl modem into the internet port, you may have to open up the web user internface to configure the connection correctly.

I would definitely say that is configured incorrectly as it is now.

Thanks,
Ekse

    Is your network secure?? because if its secure you need to make sure that you're typing the correct security key

  • Mark Gil
    Mark Gil Aug 29, 2008

    Go to your desktop computer , Open internet explorer then on the address bar type 192.168.1.1 hit enter then it will ask you for a username and password , leave the username blank and type admin for password.

    When you're already on the Linksys setup page, go to Wireless tab then you will see there Wireless security sub tab then there you can get the Security key that you need.

    Then after that connect again to your wireless network with the security key from the router page...

    There's no problem with the router, you just need to connect your laptop manually to the wireless name of your router...if you have the user manual for your laptop read it to know how to make it work wirelessly...

Start up repair won't fix problems


If the Repair fails, then you need to re-install the Operating System all over again. If you want to save existing data, such as pictures, documents and music; you must remove the hard drive from the laptop and attach it to a PC. There are Laptop cords with attachments that connect laptop drives to a USB port on a PC. You will have to use one of these cords and get the hard drive open on the PC Desktop. Once open, transfer the data to the file (make one on the PC Desktop) and save it. When complete, you will need to format the old laptop drive so it can be used again in your Laptop. If you don't care about saving your laptop data; then simply put the Windows Operating disk in the DVD and run from your laptop, installing a full new version on the existing hard drive. Windows will seek the Hard Drive for you and prepare it for new start.

Hi, For a week or two now when i put my Sony Vaio on i get a message saying my hard disk is failing & to back up my files but when i put a disk in it fails to back up. It's also telling me the name...


You need to purchase a new hard drive and have it installed, If you have anything important on your laptop right now, that is what you want to create a backup of, or you can have the store you buy the hard drive from do the back up for you and most computer stores will load it all to the new drive for free

When I power on my laptop instead of saying resuming windows it says hibernating


If you have the recovery disk of your laptop.First boot cd/dvd rom drive and load the recovery software and follow on the screen instructions. That will restore your computer factory settings but be careful and not to forget to back up or save your data or files before recovering your system.

If you can resume or turn back to windows desktop, try updating your windows or downloading updates from Microsoft to fix some bugs or errors.

Hi I was just wondering... If I have a virus or a few on my Dell vostro 1000 laptop that caused me to be unable to get windows updates or anti-virus updates which disabled or eat my anti-virus software...


Yes it would be better to save your data to an external hard drive or flash memory stick. Remember to scan the this data before you copy them back onto your laptop, if the data files are infected with viruses you will infect your laptop again.
If is best to re-install Windows, the installation process will allow you to delete the old partition, create a new partition and then select a full NTFS format, do not do a quick format.

I want to transfer data from my dial-up desktop, to my new laptop high-speed broadband. How?


Several ways:
1.) 4GB flash drive
2.) External USB drive (320GB or more)
3.) Burn CD or DVD on the desktop and copy to the laptop
4.) Connect them in a local or ad hoc network (not too easy)
I'm sure other expers will have more ideas...

Anyway, at the desktop, run the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to gather your desktop info, such as favorites, desktop icons, My Documents, etc:
[Start]
[All Programs]
[Accessories]
[System Tools]
[Files and Transfer Wizard] [Next]
At the desktop, answwer [Old Computer] [Next]
Cintinue to answer the questions
If you have a lot of music or loots of pictures, then just transfer the "Settings Only".

After a successful transfer of the settings, run the wizard again and transfer your "Data Only"

Hope this gets you started.

I have an E-Machine W3107 desk top. I recently installed a western digital 120 hard drive as a slave but it would not jump. Can you give me any help in getting my system to jump. Thank you.


Jump? Ha! Never heard that term. How about boot?
Nowadays people just load drives as Cable Select; it should have worked with the old drive set to Master, but try to set them both to that and try again, or boot to a LiveCD or the drive utility disk so you can configure them on that. If they don't appear correctly in the BIOS, just double-check that power and data cables go to each drive, etc. You may need to follow the BIOS instructions or enter the BIOS controls by hitting DEL or F10 on powering up until the menu appears; then you can select the drive to try to boot first, etc. and save your settings.
