Connect Two Laptops To The Internet Via One Wireless Access Point?
Jul 4, 2011
At home I have a wireless access point that I use to connect my laptop #1 to the Internet. On laptop #1 IP address is set to 220.127.116.11. This IP address also Subnet Mask and other addresses are given by my Internet Service Provider. Everything works just fine but lately I bought another laptop (laptop #2) and now my aim is to connect both laptops to the Internet. Unfortunately, I can't make that happen. Only one of my laptops having IP 18.104.22.168 set can connect to the Internet.
So is there any way to have an Internet connection on both of my laptops without having to buy any new equipment?
Recently my modem/router broke and we had it replaced by our provider. Since it has been replaced we have been having problems with our connection.We have 1 desktop and 2 laptops the desktop is connected to the modem. When we have both laptops running we can browse online okay but if one of the laptops starts downloading something or even loading a video or big web page the other laptops connection will not work it. It says its still connected and finds no problems but no pages will load. I also have problems when I download anything. If I begin downloading then on the same laptop I can not even browse the web while I'm Downloading.
I have 2 laptops that won't connect to the internet through my wireless router. They will connect through the ethernet cable though. When I click on connect, it says "waiting for network" but then closes itself and says it cannot connect. I also have one laptop that will not connect for several minutes after it "wakes up" from sleep mode or is restarted. It shows (No internet access).
I have a new Linksys E2000, I was unable to connect one of my laptops to the internet, so I decided to call support with the problem, after 45min and not results, find out that the E2000 do not support the Atheros AR 5007, they told me that I need to get a new driver for my adapter. Fine but Cisco doesn’t have a Driver update for this problem or how to fix it, or at least send you a link where to get the fix.
How do I connect and configure my WAP54G wireless access point to my new Cable Modem? I have it connected to the modem but I cannot access it to configure it. It appears to be working but before I got the cable modem I had it connected to a router and it was set-up with a static IP address. With my new ISP, I no longer have a static IP address so I am trying to configure the WAP54G to use DHCP. Trying to access it thru the internet at 192.168.1.245 does not work.
I want to use my PC for internet access in my office (shed)Shed does not have phone line or cable points.PC does not have wireless capability.Moile phone can be used as Access Point (but PC can't detect it- no wireless capability)What is the methods to provide plug-in/ bolt-on wireless capability for my PC so that it can use my mobile Access Point to connect to the internet?
I've got a AP WAP54G. I've managed to get into the configuration page and rename my router and set a WPA2-Personl password.
The issue I'm facing is that when me and my roomate try to connect to the router at the same time, it shows the laptop that connects second as one that has 'limited connectivity' and hence cannot use the internet. The 1st laptop however works fine! The settings for the router have all been left to default.
I'm not sure, but does this problem have anything to do with the fact that the router in configured with a static IP. If so, then there is another issure which is that whenever I try to change it from static to automatic/dynamic IP, the page fails and the router doesn't even get connected to the configuraion page(192.168.1.245) after that. The only way to get that page again is the reset the router.
Also I'm not able to directly get into the config page when I connect my router to my laptop via lan. I need to change the LAN IP to 192.168.1.x where x is >1.
I have a new notebook Sony Z217GG, I connected WAP 4400N was very smooth, but after connected WAP 4410N, the internet connecting always connect and disconnect, I check the notebook wireless model is intel 6230.
I recently moved and got a new internet provider. All the laptops connected get intermittent internet access but stay connected to the network which has excellent signal strength. what could be causing this ?
i have been using one laptop via wlan for over a year,, bought a new laptop couple of days ago,, now both of them connect to router but cant go online at the same time,, if i disconnect the old laptop from wireless router the new laptop works,, if i dissconect the new laptop the old laptop works??
I'm using a WRT120N and have had no problems connecting most wireless devices, but a Nintendo DS and DSi owned by my family are unable to connect to the access point. My wireless security mode is disabled, network mode is set to mixed, SSID is the same as on the DS/DSi, Channel width is 20Mhz only, Standard channel is set to 6, but I tried using channel 1 and 11 without success, SSID broadcast is enabled.
I've tried every work-about I could find and always get the 51300 error code, and am at a loss as to what else I can try to get the devices to connect to the access point.
Recently, my desktop will not connect to the internet but all the other laptops in the house can connect to the internet wirelessly. The desktop is hard wired to the dlink router and worked fine up until about last week. How to check if its a virus, bad networking card or maybe something else?
My desktop wont connect to the internet but my laptops will, whats wrong?? This has never happened before. I have tried resetting the modem and router by unplugging them and then plugging them back in, with no results. Here are my desktop's spec's:DellModel:Xps Xps_420Processor: intel(r) Core(TM)2 quad cpu q9300 @ 2.50GHz 2.49 GHzMemory (RAM): 4.00GB32 bit operating system
There are currently 6 laptops in my household.4 windows (1 vista, 1 xp2002 pro, 2 windows 7) and 2 linux (both ubuntu). Night before last, without warning, all 6 stopped connecting through the wireless router. I took the router out of the mix, and now only the linux laptops can connect to the internet via ethernet cable. comcast support is useless.any ideas what could be happening here? Only 1 of the linux and 2 of the windows laptops were connected at the time this occurred.

I have two SSIDs on an Autonomous Access Point, that goes to a 2960 switch, that connects to a L3 3560. I have a vlan for admin/private internal access that uses the native vlan (1) and guest vlan (50). I have configured both and I am trying to get both to go out the same Internet connection.
I cannot get the guest access to access the Internet. It looks like my computer will go, but it just comes up saying no Internet access.All interfaces are trunking this vlan properly. I can communicate from the laptop to the 3560 but I just can't get to the Internet.
Desktop won't connect to internet. I have a Belkin router and my laptops connect to the internet. My Netflix Rokus connects to the internet.I have tried your suggestion with reset winsock and reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults,etc. [code]
My son connects his xbox360 to his laptop that uses a wireless access to the router. My husband and i both have a laptop and when we try to log on to the internet it takes forever or doesn't connect at all while son is on his xbox 360. Do I need to change up my router?
How would I bridge a wireless connection with a distance of 400 feet? Would twoAP1262N-A-K9 be able to make this happen? Or is there another wireless bridge that you all can think of?I would be connecting one AP1262 of off a 3750g switch and at the far end (400 ft aproximately) another AP1262N-A-K9.
I recently switched from DSL to cable. No issues on DSL. Since switching to cable, I haven't been able to connect more than one computer to the wireless access point at one time. I have three computers, one running W7, one on xp, and one on Vista. All three of the computers have been able to connect to the WAP when connecting alone.I am using a wap54g linksys access point. Setup is internet --> coax --> cable modem --> ethernet --> wap[CODE]
I had a new AIR-AP1042N-N-K9 access point and I tried to convert it into lightweight mode with the image c1140-rcvk9w8-tar.124-21a.JA2.tar . I used all the methods but the AP is getting hanged at one position after decompressing the new IOS. The capture of the process is below: [code] After this I am getting the junk characters and everytime AP hangs at this position.
I am trying to setup my network in my home, so that I can extend the wireless signal from my main router by using an access point (a tenda w311r+).But, I want to do it so that the access point isn't connected to the main router with a cable, I want it to be connected to the main router wirelessly.It does say on the box that it can 'bridge' multiple wireless routers.
The access point I have also has 4 ethernet ports on it, so I will use one of these to plug my xbox 360 into.I also want the main router to be responsible for the DHCP.
I have high-speed cable access currently coming into an older D-Link 4-port wired router. I need to buy a new wired and wireless router so I can sync my new Android 4G phone (I'm in an area with bad cell coverage but I can sync with wi-fi). I have a second house about 200 feet from mine and have 3 Cat5E lines running underground in conduit to it so the lady next door and and her two kids can use the internet (I have 40-50mb service for my business use at home). Problem is that my kids have discovered YouTube, streaming video, video chat, etc. and are burning up my bandwidth. I currently have two of the lines to them disconnected so that I can limit their use to one computer at a time. I'm considering having them buy a Wireless Access Point, can they connect it to the standard single Cat5E LAN wire that is coming from my new wired and wireless router when I buy it?
