Attached Devices Inaccessible: Network Connect Error

We use a 2161DS in our Co-Location. I am able to access the Admin Console perfectly. But when I try to attach to the Video of one of my servers, I get an instant error message: Network Connect Error. What do I need to troubleshoot first?

This is going to be either a bad disc or a bad hard drive. Do a hard drive test in the bios, if any part of it fails, then you will need to replace the hard drive. If the hard drive passes, then try a different operating system disc.

You're right, RescueTechLA, but I think most Dell laptops use FN+F8.

Cant open the admin console on mt dwl-3200ap

Try this. Push and hold in the rest button while at the same time pull out the powers supply line from the unit. Release the reset and wait 30 seconds. Push in and hold in the reset button, apply power to the unit and keep holding the rest button in for 30 seconds, then let the reset go. It should reset everything back to factory settings and hopefully let you in with the original admin pw when you bought it.

Hi, i have an issue when trying to open AS400, it prompted me "userpmd.dll Error code:998-Invalid Access to memory". Any ideas?

When a 32-bit application runs on a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows Server 2003, and the application calls the LsaLogonUser function to authenticate the logon data of a security principal by using stored credentials information, the function may return the following error: Invalid Access Memory Location (998)

Forgot user id for router

Look on the back of your router for a url (numerical Web address) that is the format of 123.456.7.8 In your PC Internet browser put said url in address bar and connect to your router. Your user id should be on the first page. If you have forgotten your password contact your service provider to reset.
However your user ID and preset password should be on the sticker on the back of your router. If none of this works contact your service provider.

Internet access on my Wii

Error Code: 514210 Specific Error Code Not Found - General Troubleshooting
  • Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available).
  • Check your router's broadcast settings to find out if it is set to "G", "B", or "Mixed." Mixed typically works best, but try all three to see if it improves the network connection to the Wii console.

  • Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off. Wireless keyboards and mice may also cause interference.

DSi White Console: can not connect to internet promble error code: 02...

Error Code: 020100The Nintendo DS is unable to connect to an Access Point. What to do will depend on where you are connecting from:

Connecting from a wireless home network:
  • Make sure that the DS is within 30 feet of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction.
  • Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off.

Connecting from a Hotspot
  • Ensure the Hotspot location does not require an internet browser to setup an account, accept a use agreement, or enter a password before accessing their Wi-Fi serice. If the location requires any of these items, you will not be able to connect to the Nintendo WFC.
  • Make sure that the DS is within 30 feet of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction. Signal strength can vary, depending on where the access point's signal is coming from. (Please do not sit or stand in places that will interfere with the location's customers or staff.)
  • Orientate the Nintendo DS so that your body or other objects (such as walls, plants, furniture, and other people) are not blocking the signal. Also, make sure there is no interference from wireless phones (cell phones are okay).
  • If the connection continues to fail, this Hotspot may have their router set up in a manner that is not compatible with the Nintendo WFC. We recommend trying a different location.

How do i change my security settings in my belkin router to WEP and what concequences will this have

You need to access your admin console, go into wireless settings and setup the WEP security. Usually, you will put in a passphrase and the router will generate keys from that. You will use that key to allow computers to connect to your wireless router for internet access. Be sure and change the default access password for your router's admin console, or all of the security in the world won't make a difference.

Personally, I prefer to use MAC filtering. Not the easiest to deal with when guests come over, but it keeps the pests out and I don't have to remember pass keys...

Error code 109144 when try to connect to internet via wii console

Error Code: 109144 There was a problem registering the console to the WiiConnect24 service. What to do:
  • If you have multiple routers and/or modems, try to connect to no more than one router and one modem try connecting from another location.
  • If you are using only one modem or router, something on your network or from your Internet Service Provider is blocking the connection. You may need to contact your service provider for more information.
  • If you do not have the ability to connect from another location (such as a friend's house), please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may discuss available options.
