Hi,

     UNPLUG YOUR ROUTER (BUT KEEP IT ON )

AT THE BACK OF THE ROUTER ,THERE IS A RED SMALL RESET BUTON,,USING A PIN OR BALLPEN  PRESS IT AND HOLD IT FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS,

 

NOW CONNECT THE ROUTER AS IT WAS BEFORE.

 

 

 

 

Check these Steps .

 

 

 

 

1.

After logging in with your user id and password, the Home > Wizard screen appears.

Click Wireless from the menu on the left side of the screen.     2. The Home > Wireless screen appears.

Let's look at each of these fields in detail.

Wireless Radio: by default, the wireless radio is on. To turn off the radio and disable all wireless functions, select Disabled.

SSID: This is the name of the WLAN. By default, the SSID name is default. This field can be used to either connect to a pre-existing WLAN or create a new WLAN.

Channel: this field displays the current wireless channel. The default setting is channel 1. You can have the router automatically select the best channel to use by selecting the Auto Select option.

Proceed to the next step to learn about the remaining fields.     3.  Mode Setting: If your network is using only 802.11g devices, set this option to G Mode. Otherwise, set this option to Mix Mode.

SSID Broadcast: Select Enabled to broadcast the SSID from the SSID field to the entire network.

Security: From this drop-down list, select the type of security (WEP, WPA, and WPA2) you wish to enable for the network. The default setting is Disable. See the WEP & WPA Setup walk through for more details on setting up security.

Click the Apply button to apply any changes you make

The key number will be listed in the router settings as you must have security enabled in the router, if you cannot find it then simply reset the router at the rear of the unit and start again as there will be no security key number and all the settings will be back to factory default.

My new laptop doesn't work


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I am trying to connect my macbook pro 4.1 to a wireless printer. That printer works fine - when on wireless with my wifes windows machine and it works fine if i connect my mac to the printer- just not n a...


IN the case of the Mac what I have had to do in the past was shut down the other laptops and computers, delete the printer program from the Mac and start over. During the setup of the printer make sure nothing is connected to the printer. Only connect what you are instructed to at the appropriate time. It will eventually ask you how you are going to connect to the printer from that particular printer, answer ethernet cable and attach the ethernat cable to the printer from your router, make sure your laptop is connected to the router with an ethernet cable. Always set your computer up to the printer vis a hard line, then onve it is done you can swap over to a wireless setup. Once the setup is complete and a test print is accomplished bia ethernet cable, then disconnect the cable from the laptop to the router. Once you are connected to the network wirelessly, attempt another test page, you have already set the printer up at this point to be your default printing device so the laptop will find the printer on the network and initiate it. You may have to watch close for a pop up window asking to allow the connection or access to the program. Maybe think about dropping the firewall temporarily until the connection is secure.

Probably your network is secured so you will need to configure connection (provide WEP or WPA passkey to connect).
Double click on wireless network name you wish to connect and put encryption key

Hi
I presume that your internet was working fine before you bought your new laptop. Unless you've done something to change it it should still be working as before.
You shouldn't need a CD - if you think about it you don't need a CD when you log in in Starbucks so why should you need one at home?
The only thing you need to know is the router's wireless name; Talktalk 12345etc, and its password - which is the password your son is using.
I can't explain why you can't connect when your son is connected - as the router should be able to host 253 laptops (very very slowly mind) - unless the router has been set with an access list that only allows his laptop to connect.

LInksys wrt160n v2 wireless router not connecting to internet


Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.

When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.

I forgot to ask if you are cable or DSL.

Hope this helps
