The university I attend doesn't allow modems and routers, but me and my roommates desperately need wifi for our devices, otherwise they are being wasted sitting around. today I set up an ad hoc connection on my roommates laptop, but he brings his laptop places and when he's out, we have no wifi. I have my desktop computer, and I can leave it on all the time and I never leave with it, so I'd love to set up wifi on it, since it will be so much more convenient.
I brought my router from home, and ive gotten it to send out my computer's internet connection, but it brings me to the school's registration page, which I can not use, since routers are not allowed. Is there a way to use my desktop's ethernet connection and send out that internet connection through my router (it also needs to bypass the school network, somehow fooling it that my router is my computer (im guessing))? I have 2 ethernet jacks on my computer by the way.
my desktop is picking up wirelessinternet, i have 2 avalible ethernet ports on it, is their a way i can plug an ethernet from my computer to my xbox to play online, i dont want to have a cable come from the router.
Alright, so we have about six computers on average all on at the same time, working just fine, last night one of the laptops just, stopped working, saying there is no internet access, With every attempt it doesn't send any information. When I disconnect it from the wireless, then reconnect it, it immediately receives packets but won't send any.
so my computer acts slow when its sending files. when im on aim &im sending a song, evrything is slower. my internet becomes really slow to the point where i cant use it. &everything just becomes slow. &my sending speed is really slow compared to others. it would take me 10 minutes to send one song compared to my friend which would only take 3 minutes. &the song file was about the same mb.
I had a customer call me and her desktop (wired connection only) is sending and receiving packets but she still cannot connect to the internet. Customer has tried power cycling her modem, router and desktop with no avail. Her system is running XP.
I'm currently on market to get a new ADSL/WLAN/Ethernet router to my home office and I'm looking at the WAG320N as it is all-in-one solution and also 1G ethernet ports for fast file transfer. My setup is that couple PC:s and PS3 is connected with WLAN and a NAS with RAID2 is connected with ethernet cable. The thing I would like to do is allow subnet directed broadcasts from WAN side so I could use wake-on-lan feature to turn my NAS on from remote location. Does the WAG320N option "Filter Multicast" has this capability so I can send "magic packet" from Internet to turn on my NAS? How to test the WAG320N to use WOL from internet side?
But both of us are living far apart, but we are using the same ISP, same broadband package, same IP range too.I would like to know how to send files directly to him(or he send to me) @ full speed without extra steps like uploading my file to Megaupload
I can't connect to the internet. When I double click Local Area Network under Network connections it says it has both sent and received packets. It is set to automatically acquire an ip address. The computer is connected to a router. I can ping 192.168.1.1 but when I try to reach my router's settings it says page can't be loaded. I tried to hook the computer up directly to the modem and connect that way. It said it was connected and it was sending packets but I still couldn't do anything. I've turned off the windows firewall. The computer is Windows XP SP1

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.
Replaced my DLink 655 (had stopped working) with the E4200. Every time I enter a new url, there is a 10 second delay while the 'sending request' message is showing at the bottom of the browser. When the website is connected, there is another 'waiting for xxx' delay for several seconds.I am on a Mac system (laptop and desktop).This never happened with the The delay occurs with wireless or with wired access. Happens with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Does not happen if I plug the desktop directly into my cable modem. I have Optimum Boost which is the fastest ISP in the area (possibly the country).I emptied the cache thinking it is DNS problem, works for a few minutes and then back to the same routine. I've tried every setting I know.
What's the use of paying for the fastest internet access and (supposedly) the fastest router if I have to wait 15 seconds each time I visit a website. Frustrating thing is that this sometimes, not always, even happens when I am going back to a page I just visited (back button on the browser).This has to be router issue since it does not happen when my laptop or desktop is plugged directly into the modem. This does not happen to me at work either. It does not happen when I use Cablevision's wireless network in Nassau county.
I have two computers. The first is a laptop running Vista and connects to the internet just fine. The second is a desktop running XP. I have a network adapter on the desktop and although it DOES find my network, I cannot get it to connect to the internet. I type in the correct passkey and it just goes on trying to connect, saying that it is acquiring a network address but no connection
I have a desktop and a laptop that are connected to my router but can't connect to the internet. One of our other desktops is working great. Another had the same issue and I fixed it using the "netsh int ip reset c:
I have two computers and a laptop. How can I pick up the internet using one router? They are in separate rooms. I done it b4, but was done by someone else, who's not here. I don't remember how she done it, and I'm having a problem
Heres my set-up. In my office building, there's a computer company that gets bundled T1 lines and sends them out to the offices and we pay them. So, in my office i have a jack with a cat5e cable that goes to my router. The issue is that the router's internet light won't turn on.We're on our third router and second brand so I'm pretty sure the router's aren't the problem. If i connect my computer to the same cat5 cable I get the internet without an issue. But, when i put my router in there, it gets nothing. Not even a yellow light.
Just got a brand new router this morning. Hooked it up to the modem, called Bright House and had it set to bridge mode, set up our wireless range extender and everything was fineMy dad's mac laptop was able to connect as well as my win7 desktop. When my brother tries to connect using his win7 laptop, though, he can connect to the router but not to the internet. He keeps getting limited access. He was able to connect and use a neighbor's wireless (but obviously we don't want to be doing that) so we know it's at least working
I recently bought a Motorola SurfBoard SB5101U Cable Modem and a MediaLink Wireless-N Router (Model NO.: MWN-WAPR150N). Just yesterday, Charter Internet hooked up the internet for my apartment. It works just fine when I only have the modem connected, but when I add the router, the internet disconnects.I have tried changing the router's IP.Here's the ipconfig /all for only the modem:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:UsersMatthew>ipconfig /all
I have a windows 7 computer that was connected wirelessly to my router and internet worked fine. One day i woke up and the internet would not work. The computer is still connected to the router but no internet access.There are other computers on the network that connect fine.I have also tried connecting my computer directly to the modem and still no internet.Running windows diagnositc tells me there is no default gateway available. Ive cycled the modem and router probably a million times and even taking the pc to another house to try on a different router and still no go.
We have a Belkin N300 router connected to the internet through a cable modem(Comcast). Up until yesterday it worked fine for all the devices connected. But now whenever my brother's laptop connects(wireless) to the network it makes the router lose connection to the internet so all the devices connected lose connection, too obviously. Everything shows connected to the router, but the router releases it's DHCP whenever he connects. As soon as he turns off his wifi or manually chooses to disconnect... the internet fires right back up within a minute or so. We have no idea what is causing this. We did notice that his laptop was trying to connect with IPV6 while everything else was using IPV4
Well i recently purchased a Linksys e2500 router,so i connect it to my modem and then to my PC, all by Ethernet cable(no wireless) as i want my pc connected by cable, i go through the set up CD and it finishes and says you are now connected to your router but..... not to the internet and it tells me to restart the modem with i have done, i have also tried power cycling modem, router and PC, but i still get the same old problem and when i go in network connections my local area connection says i am connected but it wont let me use the internet. also above when i have been trying to set up the router this "Internet Gateway" pops up in my network connections and it is disabled and whenever i try to enabled it it just says failed.
I'm on Cable broadband my modem is a Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem and the router is an Linksys Cisco e2500 and i am using windows xp sp 3

how to block a user from using the internet when they plug their computer into a router. My roommate has refused to pay her share of the internet and, being a college student, I don't have enough money where I feel generous enough to let her have free internet after stiffing me. Basically, I have 2 routers at the moment (hoping to fix this soon): my Qwest modem works as a router but I also have a Linksys router connected to it. The only phone jack is in her room so I have no way of stopping her from plugging her computer straight into the modem and/or router. I've configured the wireless so that she would be unable to access the, wirelessly but I'd like to know how to prevent her accessing the internet when she plugs her computer directly into either component.
I recently bought a new laptop (Asus U47VC) and i am having internet connection issues. When I am at my mother's place or at school, I have no problem connecting to the internet wirelessly. However, at my father's place, my internet stops working every couple hours and will be unable to connect to the network until i reset the router and modem. Once the reset is complete, I am good for another couple hours. All the other devices ( laptops, iphones, etc.) do not have this problem and the connection is never an issue. I have read that this could possibly be a problem regarding IP addresses but I do not quite understand how to fix this.
How I can stop a local internet connection from using my computer, or the router? I am using high speed through frontier. I have deleted this local internet connection once before. When they or it connects to my stuff, I cannot get online. It says, Unnamed Network - Unsecured Network.Radio type 802.11g with excellent strength.
I have 2 laptops and 1 desktop all connected to the same router, the 2 laptops are connected via wifi and the desktop PC is currently connected via an Ethernet cable, both laptops run windows 7 while the desktop runs windows XP and more or less every time the desktop is booted after a few minutes of normality connection to the internet is lost and the yellow triangle on windows 7 appears so to fix this I have to go into my routers settings via 192.168.1.1 and reboot which then solves the problem and all machines function as they should including the desktop.
I migrated my internet from PPPOE to DHCP. My wifi is working with no problem but when I hook up my computer to 1 of the 4 Lan ports I can't seem to connect to the internet I can however log in my router no problem. But I don't get internet access... I wonder what could be the problem. I tried resetting my router and modem to see if just a bug or something but to no avail.
After a power failure nothing could connect to the internet anymore. I called MTS (ISP provider) and they had me change some setup on my PC. Now my PC connects to the internet, but nothing else will connect (X Box, WII, iPods, Laptop). They were connected wireless before the power outage through my router. MTS said they are only responsible for ensuring their model works, not routers.I have checked some router settings. It is set for DHCP with 50 users.
