I just bought a DIR-835 Router. the wireless works good-the problem however is the PC I have hooked up to the cable box, now the internet works only occasionally. I have tried disabling the firewall ,etc. The only time I can get the internet on the cable box connected PC to work is when I reset the router. I have a Gateway PC with Windows XP, I use Google Chrome. I assume it must be a Router setting that needs correcting. My previous D-Link router worked fine with the cable connected PC.
I had a new computer delivered today and it will only connect with the ethernet cable, not wirelessly. My housemate's computer still connects fine, my old computer connected fine, the trouble shooting option doesn't work. I'm using windows 7. The computer recognises the wireless strength as 'excellent' but simply informs me that it is unable to connect.
We have been working with this for a while. Our computer is a HP desktop Windows Vista 64 bit. It is wired to the router. We have a cable modem and a Linksys Wired/Wireless Router (Wrt54G). We also have other computers and video game systems that we connect off and on either wired or wireless. Every so often our internet will just cut out (much too frequently). All the lights are still on on the modem. On the computer(s) the little globe disappears and we are left with just the two computers sign in the tray. The modem still shows internet coming in though. We usually unplug the modem and router, wait and then plug it back in. We have tried unplugging everything before too and we still have this problem. I have checked Device Manager and unchecked the "turn off to save power" boxes. I also just today disabled Wake-On-Lan. (I saw that on another forum. Was that correct?) I went into our router and everything seems normal but I don't know how to use all of it. Earlier this summer I had to redo the entire computer bc the hard drive failed. I had to replace it and format the computer.
I noticed the other day that the computer was trying to connect through ethernet and wirelessly. I turned off the wireless and checked for it to be manualThis is getting old. It happens fairly often. Our ISP said that our modem was fine. They said it was probably the router but they always say that. We are supposed to have maybe 3 meg cable internet. I have done speed checks before and it is about half that. We live several miles from the station. Our internet also goes out in storms or wind but that goes out on the modem. This keeps happening and the modem acts like it is still connected.I need any suggestions on settings or anything I can try. This is really tiresome and I don't know where to look.
i have windows 7 on computer in my bedroom and its connected to Virgin Media via cable.i have been told that i can get a 2nd computer (in a different room) connected to the internet using a router.does this connect to computer or Virgin Media box? or is router the most efficient way to do this?both computers run windows 7 and 2nd is an emachine and would be used for light surfing, email and downloading games.

trying to connect this printer and it just cannot be done without USB.

I have completely uninstalled the printer with level 3 uninstall. Downloaded the latest driver from HP website. Went through the wireless network connection wizard (a dozen times) and the printer says it is connected to the network with no problem. Ran the Network Configuration, lists an IP address, excellent connection, no problems. But on installing the driver, the computer absolutely cannot see the printer. Tried entering the IP address, creating a new port directly to the IP address. Nothing. Tried pinging from the computer--nothing. Cannot bring up the printer's IP address on the browser. Disabled the firewall and tried that--nothing. Tried going back and connecting with ethernet cable directly to the router instead. Still cannot see the printer. I had this working once, and then had a virus and had to reinstall Windows 7. There was a trick to getting this to work, and I cannot remember it. Of course, the printer is out of warrantee so HP will not assist, even by email. The only way I have been able to get it to install is with USB, which is pretty darned inconvenient.
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 18.104.22.168 and Broadcom Wireless Driver 22.214.171.124 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....
i have an asus laptop that had a rogue virus...i brought it back to zero to the manufacturers settings...now i cant use wireless i lose connection when i take the cord out of the (phone jack looking like thingy) to my router (netgear) how do i use the wireless or find a connection?
My cable tv was working great until we just hooked up the wireless internet & it went out,well basically out,its all fuzzy now w barely a picture & no sound,All the wires inside & out seem to be tight & secure,i was trying to figure this out before calling the cable company,i just cant figure it out.
My linksys router all of a sudden stopped recognizing the 3 LAN lines that are hooked up to it, we are only able to access the internet via wireless. any suggestions on why the router would all of a sudden stop recognizing the LAN lines?
So i have 2 laptops and various phones and iPods hooked up to my network via the wireless and have 3 computers, 2 PS3s, 2 XBox 360s hooked up via LAN cable (These are not always running all at the same time). From time to time (it varies on time of day) the internet disconnects from all the computers in the house but the LAN stays connected. It will sometimes come back online if you wait anywhere from 30 seconds to half an hour at times. Manually restarting the modem by unplugging it for a while and plugging it back in sometimes works, at other times it does not. We replaced the switch and the router so far trying to eliminate them as the problem to no avail. We have not replaced the modem yet. My ipconfig info is below:

Some background on a scale of 1-to-10 with 10 being Sheldon Cooper and 1 being a computer less grandparent, I'm about a 6. I'm home from school for the summer and trying to access my parent's DSL by adding my router as a middleman. I tried the basic hookup (wall->modem-->router-->computer) using a Motorola MSTATEA modem and a Cisco E1000 linksys router
For home use, I have a Windows Vista PC which is hooked up to the Internet via a wireless EV/DO modem that plugs into a USB port. I just bought an iPad and for connectivity, I then bought a WRT120N wireless router. But I cannot attach the EV/DO modem to the WRT120N since the EV/DO only has a USB port. I plugged the PC into one of the 4 ports of the WRT120N and the iPad sees the router, but what I would like is that it also sees the internet when the PC is online via the EV/DO modem. Is there a way to configure this? I realize that the PC would always have to be switched on if I want to have the iPad online, but for the time being I am ok with that.
I hooked up with a Linksys WRT110 wireless router to a Zoom modem and my DSL on my desktop and laptop are both working fine. My problem is my phone lines quit working. I plugged a phone into the box outside and I had a dial tone. When you try to call my house it just keeps ringing.
I am with Virgin media (UK) and have the 20mbps fiber optic connection. My area has recently been having problems with the broadband and Virgin has recently fixed these problems. However I used to get around 19mbps now that the problem is fixed my computer which is wired to the router gets about 0.4mbps downstream... However the 5 wireless computers all get 16mbps which is pretty good for them. Windows tells me that its a firewall issue and I currently can't use two programs, spotify and steam. They both have firewall issues, even if I turn off my firewall which is the windows one. I also have avast, and when I turn that off, still no good. I used OpenDNS, stopped using that flushed my DNS, that didnt work. I tried to optimize my computer settings, by changing various values in Regedit.All of this has done nothing. I should add that I have recently re-installed Windows 7 so on this fresh install it has never had decent internet speed. Which I thought was weird.. I have basically had these problems since the fresh install. All of my drivers are up to date.
I have a netgear router, the pc I want to print from is connected via ethernet strait to router with Vista Ultimate OS. The computer the printer is hooked up to is connected via usb wireless adapter with Windows XP OS. Can I print from my computer hooked up via Ethernet from the computer that is hooked up wireless.
For the Record: I have a Linksys E4200 Router.My computer is an ASUS Notebook (can't identify model, doesn't show on system information, but got it in the last 3 months) My friend's computer is also an ASUS notebook (model designed after a stealth fighter)First: On my computer, I get a solid 500kb/s dl speed at anytime. If anyone else is downloading, even if they are the only others to do so.. they get speeds of 150kb/s tops (on other laptops connected to the router). I don't understand how this is, all the settings on the router are default.econd (more important issue for me): My friends come over often and play games (WoW, Diablo 3, Xbox LIVE etc)... Often when we're doing something together, only my friend will disconnect, but none of us wille've updated his drivers (his computer is fairly new like mine is), among other things.. But he still has the problem, which occurs only at my hou
I need to get a dir 615 router in one room to comunicate wirelessly to a dir 655 in another room that is connected to my internet modem. I can't connect them with an ethernet cable. I need the extra ports on the dir 615 because the signal strength from the 655 is too weak
i want to simply see my desktop on my tv without cables is this possible without using apple tv or push2tv or whatever else that is out there like that, i have a wireless router a laptop with wifi and a a tv which can connect to both wirelessly, i have no problem sharing files, vids photos etc but how can i browse net on laptop on couch but can see it through my tv.
I'm currently using an orange livebox which has been pretty reliable in the past. My set up is livebox > homeplug > homeplug > linksys wireless router > into 2 pcs.Its odd because my pcs have trouble detecting the wireless router, however my laptop can link up no problems.I have plugged my laptop directly into the livebox via ethernet and it works fine so I can rule out the livebox. I've also swapped the cables and they all work ok.Basically, it does link up intermittently and runs perfectly, but then after a day, or even 10 minutes it disconnects and I have a nightmare getting it to work again. I went through the entire cable system and got right to the end and hey presto it all worked...so I plugged my pcs back in. Then after about 10 mins it lost the network connection and I couldnt even link up to the livebox router by keying in 192.168.1.1. The laptop CAN connect wirelessy and access the config pages.
I want to create a home network between a desktop (W7 64 Ultimate) and a laptop (W7 64 Home Premium), wireless.Router is TP Link TL-WR941N, AP (for desktop) is TL-WA701N. From the laptop the network map shows all devices, but the desktop is not connected to the AP.
I am trying to setup a roku and the main router is about 30 ft away. I put in a repeater and it works for the laptop in the front room but not the roku. I was wondering if i could get a wireless adapter say the WET610N and configure it on the main computer then just plug it into the roku.
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:
