Question about Dell Wireless 2350 Router

2 Answers

Not recognizing IP address

My router used to work just fine; until I messed with the network settings on my laptop (the WEP, WLAN, Open Acess, Shared Access, Firewall). I was trying to make sure that my network was secure. It was to start with; I only knew enough to be dangerous, and now my laptop has no wireless. My desktop works just fine.

    Thanks for the help! I tried this. After the first command, it said, "No operation can be performed on the Local Area Connection while it has its media disconnected.



    Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:



    Connection-specific DNS Suffix

    IP Address...0.0.0.0

    Subnet Mask....0.0.0.0

    Default Gateway



    After the second command, it said, "An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out. No operation can be performed on the Local Area Connection while it has its media disconnected."



    What does all of this mean??



    Thank you for deciphering for an amateur!


  • brokeit Nov 11, 2007

    Yeah...I've done that...unfortunately a lot. I even called road runner support and they were of no help. Any other suggestions? I really have no idea.

  • brokeit Nov 12, 2007

    Thanks for all of the suggestions. I ran the Network Wizard and now I am able to connect to my wireless network from my laptop, but my browswer won't display the webpages. Also, my desktop that used to have internet also, now won't display webpages either. Now I'm thoroughly confused; and I hope your solutions vault is not exhausted!

  • brokeit Nov 12, 2007

    No, I'm not sure. What should I do?

    my hp compaq laptop, with windows xp, and a westell wireless router from verizon, has been unable to bring up the web. It says it has trouble "renewing the IP address." It seems our computer's network settings may need to be reassigned, or maybe we have trouble with our wireless hardware, (we already disconnected all the security.) Please, any direction will help!



    Desparately,

    Emily

Sounds like your router needs to be reset if you can't see the internet from either machine? Are you sure your DSL adaptor or Cable Modem is in a normal state?

Launch a Command Window by going to Start-Run, then type in "cmd" (enter) In the box, type ipconfig/release then type ipconfig/renew

    At this point it's best to restart the machine and see if it automatically requests a new IP address when it comes back up.

    The only other suggestion I have is going into control panel and running the wireless network setup wizard then follow through the steps. Do you by chance have a slide switch on your laptop (somewhere on the edges) that turns your wireless radio on and off? Sometimes, these switches are accidentally moved to the "off" position.

Brother mfc-7840W not picking up wireless IP address


It is common, mainly because the MFC connection is lost to your PC. Are you able to print or scan from another wireless PC that you have? If yes, contact your network admin or router oem. If no, reset network card. Run the Setup Wireless Wizard. Make sure you have router info such as SSID, Network Security Key, Authentication Method (Open, Shared, WPA/WPA2-PSK), Encryption (None, WEP, AES, TKIP). Enter those info, it must be CASE SENSITIVE. Just in case you dont know your router info, contact your router oem.
For Advanced Users.1. Click your Wireless Icon at Task Tray2. Right-Click your Wireless Network Name3. Select Properties4. Go to Wireless Security Settings5. Take note of the settings that you have there and enter it again on your MFC
Goodluck! If you still need more assistance. Call us 1-877-Brother. :)

We have a Linksys G Router. It works fine on my son's (Host) computer. My work laptop will recognize the wireless network but will not connect. My home desktop will not recognize the network. What are we...


There are wireless networking capabilities of the gateway that will prevent or allow specific MAC Addresses from connecting to the network. Go into the wireless settings and adjust the settings to accept the MAC address from your work computer. To find the MAC address from your computers network adapter go into a command prompt by typing cmd in the run box and typing "IPconfig /all" in the window. The MAC address is there it may be called Physical Address. It is always a 16 set of number and letter combinations divided by ":" between every 2 sets of number / letters. On your home desktop this same window will help you diagnose the problem. Your son's computer will help you with this, do this on his as well and compare the IP address with your home computer the address could be something like "192.168.1.?" the last number is going to be unique if the first three numbers match. If the IP address on your home computer doesn't match the first three octets "192.168.1" it will not get out through the gateway. If they don't match you can force it to be on the same network by setting up a static IP address by opening up the Control Panel / Networking icon and finding the icon for the network adapter that you are using and opening it up and clicking on "Properties" and clicking on IPv4 and clicking properties and clicking on Specify IP address and typing the first three octets of your son's computer and adding a fourth number that isn't "0" or "255". You can use any number between those two numbers except those numbers, and isn't the same as your son's IP Address or the Default Gateway which is the Linksys. The "Subnet Mask" will auto install but will be "255.255.255.0". The default gateway and DNS server will be the IP address of the Linksys which most likely will be "192.168.1.1". Click "Ok" on all the open dialog boxes and the computer should be able to get on the internet.

Wireless card in E1505 Dell not finding networks in range


The 1390 WLAN Minicard may not be configured to communicate with your wireless router.
Check the wireless router settings, (check the wireless settings on your other computer) and configure the 1390 WLAN with the same settings eg. SSID, WEP/WAP encryption, etc.
Is MAC address filtering enabled on your wireless router, if so add the MAC address of the 1390 WLAN to the MAC address list in the wireless router.

Check the TCP/IP properties of the 1390 WLAN card the Internet protocol should not have a fixed IP address, set it to Obtain an IP address automatically including the DNS.

Use the Ipconfig command to see the IP configuration of the network cards.

Use the Ping command to see if you can communicate with wireless router.

Securing my wifi network


Hi George,

Simply open your Internet browser, in the address line, inset 192.168.0.1, then:
-> Goto TOOLS

Here you set the administrator password, note that you have to set the same password twice.

Do set some security as well, other vice your neighbor will use your network, - and that you don’t want, as you don’t know what and where he go on the internet.

On page 27 in your manual, you find the way to set the wireless settings.

On page 37 in your manual, you find a way to set MAC address settings. Thise settings allow only those MAC addresses as you put in the table.
You find your own MAC address like this:
->Start->run->write cmd and hit enter; a black DOS window open, write ipconfig /all (note the space before /all). Here you find your MAC address – note that there is two cards in your laptop, and the card you want the MAC address for is the wireless card.

Network


as long as you are not using your own router to connect to your neighbours, as this wont work only one router on the network can connect to the net Im assuming your pc is trying to connect to the neighbours router, so you need to reset the router if you cant access it, it should have no password as default and the ip address of the router should be 192.168.2.1. get into your network cards properties and ensure obtain an ip address automatically on the TCP/IP line is selected. Go into the router settings and make sure enable DHCP is set to allocate ip addresses automatically and that the router transmits on mixed mode b and G, turn off any wep or wpa encryption until you have a connection. Do not use windows connection repair as it will totaly mess up your pc's ip addresses and stop you from connecting to the routers ip address.

Got connected, but no recieved data


Firstly don't encrypt your connection until it is up and running. Depending on your router, if you require it to allocate IP addresses automatically you have to make sure enable DHCP is ticked, otherwise see what the IP address of the router is e.g 192.168.2.1 and set your network TCP/IP properties to 192.168.2.2 or any last digit as long as it is not the same. This is the router IP address and not your ISP address. Lastly set up your encryption but there are two ways of sharing the connection, one is called a 'wep shared key'; the other 'wep open' so make sur your pc wireless network is sharing the same type of WEP. Hope this helps Please rate this solution.
