Connecting A Desktop Wirelessly To A Belkin Router?
Dec 6, 2011
I have a desktop computer connected to a modem and a wireless Belkin router. I bought a Belkin Surf&Share wireless USB adapter so that I could move the desktop elsewhere in the house and still connect to the internet. When I disconnect the computer from the router, the wireless light on the router turns red and I can't connect.
I'm having trouble connecting to my Belkin router wirelessly (Wired works fine). I try to get to the IP address (192.168.0.2 and every other version of that) but it does not connect. On the router only Security, Wired, and Router are lit up; Wireless, Modem, and Internet are dark. I have reached the end of my limited computer capabilities trying to fix this problem myself.
My computer sees my network, but I can't connect to the internet wirelessly. If I plug in the Ethernet cable from the modem I can access the internet. So, I've narrowed this down to something with my router.
OS: WIN7 Router: Belkin N750 DB N+
Steps taken:Modem and router have been shut down and restarted.Router has been returned to factory settings and reconfigured.Validated with my ISP there are no issues with my internet service. Router software has been uninstalled, reinstalled I do not use McAfee. I've run a full virus scan, a full malware scan and just for good measure, a defrag. I've checked my firewall.
I am currently at a friends house attempting to fix a situation he is having with his' wireless router, it is a Linksys WRT150n.Connection to the internet is possible via ethernet connectivity, however wireless is another story, devices can see the network but cannot connect to it, i have disabled the security key from the network to see if it was a simple password incorrection but still no dice.The current basic wireless settings have network mode set to mixed, and radio band, wide and standard channels set to auto, all other settings in the advanced tab are set to their default values.
I have an internet dvd player that can only connect through a wired connection but my router (verizon wi-fi modem) is located in another room.I was wondering how I can wirelessly connect my old router (e2000) to the one in another room? Would I configure it as a access point?
My WRT54G router locks up 100% of the time when attempting to connect connect wirelessly to a Samsung Blue Player (Model number BD-P3600). I can connect to it with a cable no problem, but when I attempt to do so wirelessly and type in the password on the Blue Ray player, it attempts to connect but the router locks up and all devices connected to it (wired or wirless) lose connectivity
I get a great wired connection but when I try for wireless the Samsung says I have a great connection, except when I try to use the Apps from the Blu Ray it tells me, No Internect Conncetion. Samusung support tells me I need to "open the ports" on my E3000 and make the Blu Ray a priority...I don't know how to do that.
Running Win XP (no service pack), WPA personal. Two other computers connect fine. On an old laptop running Win XP the network card sees the router, but when I enter the correct passcode (16 character) I get a message saying the code must be 13 characters. How can a connect this computer without disabling the other two wireless devices running through the router?
I have a BEFW11SF V4 firmware version 1.52.03. I just bought an HP DJ3051A and can't get it to connect. HP support says I need to change a setting to mixed mode but I don't see that I can. Does this router supports mixed mode and if so how do I change it?The other comment the HP rep made was the printer does not support Wireless N. I am fine with this since the router says Wireless B. It seems based on the HP rep's comment that as long as I am not using Wireless N, then I should be fine.
I have an original Xbox 360 (wifi not built in) and the external wifi adapter. With all previous Cisco routers, I have been able to connect my Xbox successfully and quickly. Now, however, I am experiencing much difficulty.
I have verified I am using the latest firmware for my router, and configured my router like this: [URL] in terms of ports. I have also used the Xbox's MAC address to give a static IP address via my router's DNS.
The Xbox can see both my main wireless SSID and my guest SSID but cannot connect to either.
I just hooked up my new Sony BDV-E570 Blu-ray home theater in a box. Everything looks great except it is not connecting to my WRT110 wireless router. Router is one level below where the home theater system is located, and signal strength appears good (4 bars) on the Blu-ray player, but it repeatedly says "connection failed" when I try to connect. The Wii is also in the same place and has no problems connecting wirelessly to the WRT110 router.
I just installed WRT54GH and wireless was working fine, after almost 3 hours passed I lost connection with it.I tried to connect using wireless with 3 different notebooks without success. Just using cable it works.I upgraded firmware from v1.0.010 to v1.0.01 but still not working.
My belkin router F7D4401 is not being recognize by my desktop whereas i can connect to the same without a problem using my laptop. The belkin router management software shows the router as connected when i joined it my laptop but the desktop always says not connected.
I just installed Tomato firmware (details below) on my wireless-N router and everything appears to be working fine on the router's end. I can connect to the Internet properly with a wired (Ethernet) connection; in fact, that's how I posted this question.
What I cannot do is connect to the router wirelessly in any way. At first, I thought that something was wrong with my wireless security settings, because I read about some incompatibilities between Windows 7 and AES encryption. However, when I changed to TKIP, the issue persisted; when I switched from WPA2 Personal to WEP, the issue persisted; and when I disabled wireless security entirely — just for testing purposes — the issue still persisted.
My Internet search for this issue brought up a lot of old forum and mailing list posts, most of which were useless. The only one that seemed promising suggested disabling Afterburner, but that came disabled by default on my install. I did try enabling it and then disabling it, but it had no apparent effect.
In case it's relevant: before I installed Tomato, I had a somewhat funky install of dd-wrt on the router. The first thing I did after installing Tomato was a full clean of the nvram through the web GUI's Administration → Configuration → Restore Default Configuration menu.
What do I have to do to get wireless running? I only have one computer available at the moment, but I'll try to update later if and when I can borrow more devices for testing.
Linksys WRT160N v3 Tomato Firmware v1.28.9054 MIPSR2-beta K26 Mini Linux kernel 220.127.116.11 and Broadcom Wireless Driver 18.104.22.168 updates
EDIT:This is a computer issue, not a router issue. Two smartphones with wi-fi connections and another computer are all able to connect to the wireless network with no problems. However, the original computer was able to connect to the same router just fine before Tomato was installed. It has an internal wireless-B/G card, and I had Tomato set up to broadcast G-only, so it should have been compatible.
EDIT 2:The computer in question was the only device in the house that wasn't set up for wireless-N, so I went out and bought a Wireless-N USB adapter and changed Tomato to be N-only. Using the new adapter, I get connection again. I suppose it's possible that the computer's OEM internal wireless card failed at exactly the same time that I installed Tomato on the router, but that would be one heck of a coincidence. I'll see if I can connect to some other G or B network next time I'm around one....
My Dell destop with Windows 7 all of a sudden doesn't seem to recognize my router, yet my laptop works fine (which I'm using now). After reading other posts, I reset the router with no results, used a new cable from the Belkin to the computer, changed ports, checked connections, restarted; nothing. When I do an ipconfig, a small window pops open and goes off before I can make anything out. I undestand Belkin's IP address is 192.168.2.1 and I'm showing that my IPv4DHCP Server is that, as is my DNS server. The IPv4WINS server shows nothing.
I am about to buy the parts for my new gaming desktop, and I am looking into getting the right parts so it can connect to the internet wirelessly. In doing a bit of research, I have come across this card, and I am looking for opinions on the card/other viable options.
I have a belkin n300 wireless router that i know works because the ps3 connects to it but when i tried to add my desktop to the wireless router i used the installation cd to download onto the computer (which i was then told by belkin tech support that the cd was only for extra stuff like printers..) when i installed the cd it said not reccommended to install because it wasnt windows xp authorized but i did this any ways.. i have also been looking online for diferent things to do to try and get my computer to connect to the router so i have changed things on the computer that i have no idea how to backtrack and take it all back..i tried rrstoring my system to an earlier date and it wont do it. now my computer wont even pick up on a wireless connection.. i then tried to connect directly to the modem (comcast box) and i still couldnt get on internet!
Now I decided to switch my desktop to hdmi after doing that the cord was affecting my wireless antenna so I took it out and put it in the other wireless antenna spot while it was on now everytime I try to connect it says the password is wrong or theres something wrong with the router everything else connects I have a dell inspiron 620 desktop and a Begin.91Bb modem/router
I have one desktop PC at home, Windows XP, and have a Time Warner wired modem for internet. I work from home and connect to my office computer through Remote Desktop Connection.I purchased a Roku2 video streaming player and bought a Belkin N150 wireless router in order to get the signal from my desktop computer out to the living area where the Roku is located. The connection with the Roku is perfect. However, my remote desktop connection now disconnects constantly and internet browsing on the local computer is very slow and choppy.The configuration I used is 1) Belkin ethernet wire from Belkin to back of modem 2) modem ethernet wire from Belkin to computer.If I remove the Belkin and put everything back the way it was, all is fine ... but, of course, we then have no Roku.
My client has a ~6 year old dell xps which up until about two weeks ago connected to the internet fine with a netgear usb wireless adapter (it is a desktop). When that stopped working, she ordered a Rosewill RNX-N300X (my suggestion) and I installed it.I got the driver installed and everything, it connects to the router without a problem. Her laptop also connects wirelessly to the router just fine and can browse the web without a problem. The desktop however, even when connected to the router, refuses to access the internet. I was thinking the problem was DNS related because I can ping any ip address in cmd, but can't ping actual websites like [url]... or [url]... The problem is, when I manually change the dns servers in the wireless connection properties, it disables dhcp and will not connect to the internet.Here are the ipconfig /all results for the laptop which works:

I just installed a Belkin N150 wireless router to use with our iPhones which it is working great. But I also have my desktop pc attached to the router as a wired connection and the down load speed on the desktop pc has decreased dramatically. for example it took 10 minutes to download a 30 sec video.Before I installed the Belkin router I had no downloading issues. This is on a dial up modem.
I have recently upgraded my router to a Belkin N750 DB and am having issues getting remote desktop connection working. Previously I had a Netgear router and it was working no problems at all.I have port forwarded (virtual server on Belkin) port 3389 TCP to the servers IP address.I can get Remote desktop connection to work when I am within my LAN by just typing the computers name.However when I try to connect via the IP address, as I would if I were away from home, then I get the message that says "remote desktop cannot connect for one of these reasons
1) remote access not enabled (it is because it worked before) 2) remote computer is turned off (no it isn't) 3) remote computer is no available" (yes it is cause can connect from LAN)
Turned off static IP for my server and let the router assign IP, and changed the IP address in the port forward, same, no connection.Double, triple checked my IP address, as this obviously changed when I plugged in the new router.Have updated to latest firmware for router and NIC.
My desktop however, does not have built-in wireless and therefore would have to connect to the ADSL router (Netgear) through ethernet but this cannot be done as the router must remain in my bedroom, much too far away for cables to reach.I bought a USB wireless connecter for the desktop but it doesn't seem to work. It connects but gives "Local Only" as the connection.
At work we have an existing wireless network with with a lot of wireless pc's and devices connected to it.. We want to however connect 2 desktop pc's to the same network so that they have internet access also. These 2 desktops have been connected to the wireless router via wireless dongles, but due to some office arrangements we have to move them to a different office in the building where there is network ports available.I plugged in a D-Link 5-port Gigabit desktop switch to the network point in the office the 2 desktop pc's are moving to and tested it with my laptop (with wireless disabled) to see if everything is working.The LAN seems to be working fine, but when I want to connect to the internet.. it seems something is wrong.
I just installed windows 7 into my computer and I need to verify my copy of windows. I tried connect my Ethernet wire from my computer to the wireless router but it's not connecting or registering. The wireless router is a WRT54G and I can access the device ip for it but I don't know how to assign an IP address for the new computer. I already had a computer (wired) and a laptop (wireless) connected to the router. I'm using a straight trough Ethernet wire Doing the steps in the sticied post below didn't work because typing ipconfig /release didn't work?
I have recently bought a Belkin N300 Wireless N Modem-Router and am unable to connect it to the internet. My laptop registers the router but the router won't connect to the internet. The router also is blinking a red light.
The other day my wifi was working the all of a sudden today my wifi stopped and said it's disconnected. On the router the only non-green light says "LINK"and it keeps flashing orange. How do i fix this because i cannot tweet pics from my phone without this working...
I got this netbook from someone who claims that he is an apple guy and knows nothing about PCs, bought it for his daughter and never had any connection issues whatsoever.My older netbook and my laptop recognize my wireless connection but this one claims it can't renew the IP address and it's all zeroes.I am currently connected through an ethernet cable. My network adapters, an 802.11n wireless LAN card and an Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E ethernet controller have no warning triangles or red x's, although the DOS commands tell me I have disconnected media. I went to the ASUS website and downloaded some updates but am afraid to install anything without being 100% certain because the C drive, as on most older eeepcs, is nearly full and I load everything onto D. I've removed the old profile, unplugged and restarted the router. I've reset, rebooted and pinged. After my reboot, I saw a new error message box. The title bar read "RaUI Message" and the text read "Unable to support WiFi Direct feature".
So - cmd prompt results:

I have the 2wire Gateway modem to connect to the internet on my HP all-in-one desktop computer, which I bought a little over 3 years ago. Occasionally, the computer will show that the internet is disconnected, however the modem will have all it's lights flashing. After attempting several times to get to connect again, I called the support number, and they told me that I would either have to the ethernet cord hooked to the computer or purchase a network adapter. BUT my computer already had a network adapter installed in it before I even bought it, so I don't feel that I need to purchase one and I was able to get it to connect to the internet wireless by myself after hanging up. My question is how to keep my computer from wanting to disconnect from the wireless internet?
I just bought a Play N600 F7D8302. I swapped out my old Belkin router for this one. Easy swap. I went in to the 192.168.2.1 address, to look at the current wireless settings. I saw an option to use it as an access point. Not sure what I was thinking when I checked it off, but now I can't connect wirelessly, and I cant get onto the settings page again, via 192.168.2.1. My IP address has changed, and is now 22.214.171.124. I've unhooked everything and hooked it back up. I pushed the reset button on the back. I don't know what to do. How do I get it back to the way it was before I got my hands on it?
