Belkin Wireless router

I have been trying to set 2 laptops up with this router at home, one seemed to be ok but i made an error with the other. When told to type in the ip address 192.168 etc i typed the wrong number at the end and now it won't allow me to do anything. Keeps telling me it is already under Adminstrator...(and then the wrong ip address). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

    You'll have to bear with me, not great at all this stuff. Laptops are both still connected via the cable to the ethernet and one was working via this way until i typed in the wrong ending to the ip address - 1.2 instead of 1.1, in the explorer search bar. They both seem to be networked because they both now come up with the error they are already being adminstered by the 1.2 ip address. Until I did this, both lights were on on the router relating to the LAN for each laptop. Hope this makes sense, thanks

    Hi. I have managed to get one laptop to work through the router but still using cables. Wireless does not seem to be working. I am not sure how to check the lan connectivity as suggested. Help.

Hi,

Based on your post,

  • the two laptops are wired to the router;
  • the router lights for each Ethernet connection is lit indicating connection.
Proposed course of action to be done to both laptops:

  2. Scroll down to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)) and highlight it;
  3. click on Properties button;
  4. correct IP address entries as required by your router. 1st laptop IP 192.168.2.11, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway 192.168.2.1. 2nd laptop IP 192.168.2.12, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway 192.168.2.1.

If you jest type an IP address in explorer you do not change any settings. The fact that you typed wrong ip address in IE bar it is probably ininfluent.

Start checking network cables to the router.
Swap cables on router internet ports.
Ensure that you fully configured the router.

My suggestiong is calling your Internet Service provider phone number, often this is toll free or local call rate.
The technical service will follow you at the phone in step-by - step network configuration.

Tell us what internet service you have to get the phone number, or check the letters and emails that came with the broadband, and broadband company website.

I woud suggest to restore the machine to a point prior to your attempt to set it up, and putting in the number incorrectly. Have you tried this?

    (General procedures for setting up a wireless network - it is not really a difficult procedure - establish the router protocol, give your network a name & encryption code, set up the connection on each machine with the same settings you gave the router, make sure each connection works!!)

    I think it will be much easier for you to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 10 seconds so the router will be back to its deafult settings and just start from there...

Hi - I recently set the security on my router but am having trouble connecting to wireless on my home laptop. All other devices seem to be ok (2 work laptops, IPad, Ipod) and I get a message saying that...


This error message usually occurs in windows vista & win7 if the settings saved on the computer doesnt matches with the settings in the router...
You can get rid of this message by deleting the list of preferred networks from your computer...
To delete the preferred networks, follow the method given below...
Open control panel > open Network & Internet(double click) > open Network & Sharing center(double click)
On the far hand side left you will have an option called "Manage wireless networks" If you click that, you will see the list of preferred networks that are already saved in your computer... Now select your network, make a right click and select "Remove network" Select "ok" for all the warnings...
Thats it..! you are done..! Now search for the list of available wireless networks in range, you must be able to see your network name without any error mesages... Select your network and click connect, it will ask for the network key(if you have setup one)... Enter the key and get connected...! You must be able to go online now..!

Laptop stopped connecting via wifi to home network.


The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.
You can restore the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .


Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.

Check the router settings, if the router is set to only use 802.11N wireless it won't pick up a computer that is using 802.11G or 802.11B wireless.

Good luck

Problem - Errors on Startup


The process erroring out has to do with the Toshiba wireless settings. http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/cfsserv/ "cfsserv.exe is a process belonging to Toshiba's ConfigFree utility and searches for Wireless Devices. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems." I would attempt to completely un-install this utility and then re-install it. After re-installing this utility, make sure the wireless setting on your Toshiba and your wireless router match exactly. If you have trouble using the Toshiba utiliy, you can always try the built in Window utility (that is if you have Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed).
