I have two Roku units and neither can connect to the internet with my Motorola sbg901 wireless modem. Up until just a few days ago I was able to connect just fine. I called my ISP (Cableone) and tried to have them change my DNS settings to open DNS to see if that fixed the problem but they said they wouldn't do that.
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.
We recently connected the Netgear WNR2000 to our modem. All wireless devices connect just fine, except for our Roku XD. It says there is an activation error. I've reset the box, unplugged, changed the channel via wireless settings. What's next??? I'm quite frustrated and would like to get this to work. The message I get is "activation issue. There was a problem connecting to the Roku server". Argh!! It was working fine with the other wireless modem/router (versalink 327W), but it kept going off (as in the signal would drop and we would have to turn it off/on to get it to work) and connected the netgear router to it today.
I tried to set it up on a new dir 655 but the password the roku asks for does not work. I have the latest firmware installed. I tried entering my ssid manually and then the key. I did reset everything and try again. Why is my wireless not working? The ethernet port to my desktop is working fine.
I am trying to gain access to Netflix using a Roku player, but I need the network security key, which someone else originally set up for me. That person doesn't remember the network security key. Is there a way I can find out what the network security key is, or is there some way that I can set up another one?
How to install the Cisco/Linksys WRT120n wireless router with respect to using Roku.I have one computer, a laptop, which I'm using as a desktop, in that it is stationery and the only wireless device is the Roku. When I open Network File Sharing, sometimes i see 2 instances of linksys, other times just 1. general setup or whatever so I don't have to reboot the computer every 2 hours to watch Roku.
I am in the process of opening an internet cafe. I dont know exactly what a pc server does on the network... or do I really need one? Is the switch/hub sufficent to connect all pcs to the moderm to connect to the internet?
Few days ago I started to get the following error message while trying to connect to the internet using Chrome and IE:"Unable to connect to the proxy server..."I don't have a proxy server configured - nothing is checked in the LAN settings page.In Firefox I don't have that problem - it seems it gets the proxy configuration from elsewhere.
In my device I am able to browse through & connect to my HOME wifi network ; But after connecting it says 'No Internet Access'.I tried connecting with my SONY Bluray , iphone , ipad , laptops -- everywhere same story.I am able to plug in the ethernet cable directly from modem & able to connect to network.I am not able to open the http://192.168.0.1 -- ( When I am plugged in the modem directly)
Following are my router details
FCCID - KA2DIR601A1 IC : 4216A-IR601 H/W Ver:A1 F.W Ver:1.00 NA
I want to connect to the Internet small office where docsis (internet over tv cable) is used as WAN.For similar tasks but other WANs (adsl, dial-up) I used 800 series. But now I can't find anything in this series to solve my issue. There is 815 but it has no wi-fi.
I can use cable modem that my ISP gave to me: this modem acts as bridge so I can use router with FE-based WAN but it is better to have one device instead of two.
I suddenly can't connect to the internet using IE or Firefox every time I try I get the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". My connection on my wireless picks up great and shows signal strength as excellent. I took it to a place that was offering free check ups and they said that I caught a virus which I never seen any sign of catching a virus when it worked and that it had wiped out one of my hard drives and they could fix it for $229.00. I don't have that kind of money so I don't know what to do.
After i reinstall my PC, i can't connect my vaio (VGN-TX750P) to internet through internet cable nothing appears in Control PanelNetwork and InternetNetwork Connections wifi is working fine but I can't connect using ethernet
I come here today with a problem that has been plaguing this laptop forever and a day. You see, about two or so years ago on this very laptop, it was just another day where I booted up my laptop and was going to get a good day of wasting time on the internet underway. I tried to open Firefox, and I got prompted to download an apparent update for the browser. Obviously I went along with it because it seemed pretty routine and identical to how Firefox had updated in the past.
After the update was all done and dusted, I found myself unable to connect to the internet through Firefox. I would just get a constant stream of "Unable to connect" messages. I thought it might have been a problem on my end since back then I had rather wishy washy internet. So I let it settle for a while. Later on that day I talked to a few of my buddies over Xbox Live and asked if they'd had any similar issues with the new Firefox update because at the time, we all used it and hadn't quite jumped ship to Chrome just yet. But no matter who I asked, I always got the same response "I didn't get any update." Which as you can imagine, confused me quite thoroughly.
At first I can connect to Internet for 1 min and fails afterwards even if I reconnect to the router. Then I turn on the Access Control settings on my (NETGEAR) router and put my laptop into the trusted wireless stations list, now it can connect to Internet for 1 min and fails however it works for another 1 min if i reconnect to the router. So now I need to reconnect to the router every minute or so.I can connect to the Internet via Ethernet cables, so I am quite sure it's the wireless problem on my router but not the service provider's fault.
I live in a college apartment complex where internet is provided to us. Usually when i start my computer i automatically connect to "Network" if i connect someothign such as "Network X" where X = a number i have no internet connection. This morning i connected to Network 7 which meant i have no internet connection. i have tried disabling and enabling the adapter, i tried resettign internet protocol (tcp/ip) and i found this [code]. Double click on the flush.bat file to run it.Vista and Windows 7... right click the .bat file and choose to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.
I am using my HTC Desire HD with USB Teethering in an attempt to connect my Desktop computer to the internet.
HTC Sync, drivers, etc are installed onto my Windows 7 x64 Desktop.
However I am only getting an intermittent internet connection. Sometimes the phone & windows play nice (and I can browse the web) and sometimes they don't (which usually results in me browsing the ceiling and cursing!).
Here is an IPCONFIG output from an instance when I was not able to browse the web:
Code: Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 4: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Description . . . . . . . . . . . : HTC Remote NDIS based Device
As can be seen above an I.P. address is being obtained, and Windows knows that a "HTC Remote NDIS based Device" is connected. It simply won't accept the presence of a valid network connection, and as a result it refuses to let me browse the web or do anything remotely useful with the "pseudo-connection".
I'm having a horrible time trying to connect by magnavox blu ray player to the internet. It first said an error with DHCP, and so I did everything manually, and I think I'm putting in the wrong information..

Yesterday my computer would no longer connect to any internet service.
I called up my internet provider because the "internet" light on my modem was red and he managed to fix that but then my computer could no longer connect to the internet. (just as a note; up until now I have had no issues with connections from my computer to the internet or my home network)
The family computer can still connect to the internet, as can my xbox. My PC can also connect to my home network so I know there is no issue with cables.
I'm not sure where to go from here.
I've looked at similar issues through a few forums but haven't been able to find one exactly the same. The next thing I was going to try was:
I Peard my PC to my router,the internet works fine,the problem is i can't connect my PS3 and another PC to the internet.It connects but there isn't an Internet Access My router is the WAG160N n the instructions it says that : I need to press a special button on my router to pair new devices, but I can't understand what they wrote[CODE]
I just installed Win7 about a week ago, and everything was going fine. A few days ago though, when I turned on my computer, I wasn't able to connect to the internet (I'm writing this from my laptop When looking at my network settings, I tried clicking on the red "X" across the line to the internet, and I uploaded a litte picture to show you the info I got out of that below instead of my trying to explain it...I'm connecting to a shared network in my block via a cable directly to the wall socket, no router, and as you can see I am able to see some of the others logged on to it, but at the Gateway there's once again that evil red "X".
(not able to see the picture properly myself, so here's a link to it on ImageshackWhen I put the same cable into my laptop though, everything is working just fine, so the problem must be with my stationary computer, but I have no idea what it is.I had the same problem yesterday and called a more technically inclined friend who fiddled around with it for close to 2 hours and all of the sudden it worked again, but we honestly have no idea why. The change occured when we first took the IP/DNS-settings on the netcard away from "auto", which didn't change a thing, and then put it back to "auto" again. That made theconnection pop back on, but it didn't really make us any wiser as to whys you can see on the picture above my network is called "Network 2". It made that automatically when the problems started. I got an old network too which is just called "Network", but I can't seem to make that my active one. I tried merging them the first time around in hope of that working, but that didn't change anything, and as you can see I'm now forced onto "Network 2" again, even though I also this time around has my old "Network" on the list if I go look
I successfully used a wireless network with my PC running windows until I upgraded to a Belkin Play Max wireless router. Once it was installed my PC would connect but go off line almost immediately. I reinstalled the router disc but this only stopped it from connecting, completely. My ipad, iphone, laptop all go online wirelessly without any problem. I tried to connect my PC with an ethernet cable but it wouldn't connect with this either.
I recently reinstalled Windows Vista on my computer and now I cant get online with the ethernet cable. I am online with a USB cable but want to use the other. The network adapter is stuck with a 169.254 IP addy that I cant get to release no matter what Ive tried.
I use my PC to connect to the internet wirelessly with a wireless adapter. The connection would drop, then reconnect and stay active for a while, then drop again. The internet, when accessing this connection, would go really slowly. A day or so ago, it began to not even find the connection, and now, when the adapter is plugged in to the machine, it does nothing.I know the adapter can access internet in its current location because a) it has worked here for months, and b) a laptop sitting on the same desk accesses the same router wirelessly. So I don't think the problem is distance from the router.I believe the adapter to be okay, because I used it in the laptop for several hours yesterday and it accessed the internet with no connectivity issues or speed problems. Just in case it was the problem, though, I purchased another adapter and tried that and it did not work in my PC either.The device manager for my PC shows my wireless adapter and internal ethernet card both, with no red X's or !s or yellow warning signs. I assume these would show errors if this was a hardware issue.I'm running Windows 7 on my pc, and just in case it was a software issue (or virus), I reformatted the machine an hour ago. The adapter has been installed, is identified in the device manager, and there is still no connection available.
I have recently moved into a new place and my I can't get the internet to work good on my pc.The router is a NETGEAR VMDG280 and I have windows 7.My laptop which is windows 7 is ok... The iphone is ok my roommates is ok everything is ok apart from my pc and I use it for work.It connects but says there is no access or it connects but it is extremley slow.[code]
I'm trying to set up some security cameras for work so we can view them remotely via the internet. I'm using a sierra wireless aircard which is connected wirelessly to EDIMAX EW-7438RPn N300 Universal Wi-fi extender, the Wi-Fi extender is then connected by ethernet cable to the DVR. I am able to access the DVR and view video via local connection (192.168.1.4). But we're trying to run through Dyndns.org using the host name Redxdvr.dyndns.org which is updated to my external IP address if it changes at any point.
Reading through the DVR manual and settings on the DVR itself, it uses these 4 ports:
I have attempted to forward these ports on the sierra wireless, but when I use [URL] It says the ports are closed. I cannot connect to my DVR though either the client or web browser via redxdvr.dyndns.org. I also attempted to connect my DVR through my home internet on the weekend and noticed that the DVR connected through "Redxdvr.dyndns.org" but I had a different problem, it would take me to my routers home page, even though I had already port forwarded.
I built my 1st PC build about a week ago. It's mostly for gaming, so obviously a solid internet connection is a must, right?I originally planned to have it plugged into a 42' LED TV so that I can make most of my games' graphic capabilities. My primary source for an Internet connection for the PC is a 150mbps USB network adapter, which works fine.. but the network speed is abysmal. A test at speedtest.net revealed the ping was 286, where my ping (when tested right next to the router, up a floor and on the other side of the house) is around 15. Now, most of the router's signal is going outside the house because it's omnidirectional, but it's also right next to the modem and plugged into the main house PC (that I don't use.) What I'm wondering is, how can I connect my PC to the internet with the best possible speed, but also using the largest TV in the house? (Which is also unmoveable?) Otherwise, my only option is to use a smallish but portable 20' TV and connect both it and my PC a floor right below the router, which is fast Internet but also a small display.My budget is rather limited, so I can't afford to buy 100 foot ethernet cables or drill holes into the floor. A wireless repeater may be a good option but still can be rather expensive
I don't know why can't I connect to my wireless.Even my phone(Blackberry) can connect to the internet.I have 2 brothers and there laptop is working fine but mine.Can't connect even once since someone change network to be unsecured.But I don't think that doesn't have anything to do with my case.
I have a newly purchased Samsung LED TV that came with 'Smart TV', which allows you to connect to the internet. The TV also came with a wireless adapter. When I set-up the TV a few months back, I had no problems connecting to an unlocked wireless connection in my apartment building but now, I cannot do it anymore.Local connection is completed. But cannot connect to the internet. Check the DNS setting from Network Setting and contact your Internet Service Provider to use Internet service.
How can I get this internet connection to work again on my TV? Obviously I am not sure what ISP this person has or what type of broadband connection exists. I would however be able to provide this person's mac address, IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway and DNS Server addresses.
