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 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 go through the printer installation for my Brother 665CW. During the install, the printer shows up. In my router's client table, I see the printer. When I print a network setup page, the IPs and MACs match what's on the router. Everything should work. The status icon for the printer on both my computers (one wired to the the router, one wireless) is grey. (green=connected, ready to print; red=error;grey=not connected) If I send something to the printer, of course nothing prints. It times out on my computer. The weird part is that sometimes, after several hours, even days, my docs will suddenly print. What the heck? I read on some forums that the WLAN partition can get in the way but it's not turned on so that can't be the problem. Except for security, most everything is on the default setting. I'm not using WPS. The security I'm using is compatible with the printer (like I said, it connected to the router and the router sees the printer. It's like the computers are ignoring the printer. Both computers are running Windows 7. I've tried both the win7 and vista drivers, thinking it was a driver problem. Two months ago, when I switched from my ATT modem/router everything was working perfectly. I tried to emulate as many setting from that as I could. What magic check box am I forgetting to click?
I have a Brother MFC9120CN that I would like to connect to my wireless network. The printer does not support wireless networking but does support networking with Ethernet cables.I want to connect it wirelessly using a wireless adapter on the USB port.I'm not sure how to set up the networking on the printer to do this. schmuck281 has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.
I've got a Brother 5490CN network printer. For the past year, it has been sitting next to my router and plugged directly in. Due to changes in how my service enters my home, the router needed to move to another location - a location that is inappropriate for the printer.
My father works at a mall in a shop and had bought a Brother 2270DW printer (wireless and wired networking) to find that it was a bit bigger than he had anticipated it to be and does not fit on his kiosk desk, and so gave the printer to me yesterday. He was wondering if it is possible to setup the printer so that it could be printed to from over the internet. After I reserved a DHCP IP address for the printer, changed 'admin' and 'user' passwords, and disabled some protocols, I made sure IPP was enabled and that port 631 (TCP) was forwarded on my DD-WRT router.
I added the printer as my external IP address [URL] in Windows, selected the correct driver as provided by Windows Updates, and attempted to send a test page without success.This would be my first time trying to setup a printer for over-the-Internet printing (aka IPP).what I could do to try get this to work?
I am using a Compaq laptop, and i have Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter attached to it.I used to be able to connect to a Printer Brother MFC-J430W via wireless and print from it.But recently, when I try to print from it, it says that the printer is offline. I tried restarting my laptop, wireless adapter, and the printer, I also try restarting the spooler service but the attempt was not successful. Try unchecking SNMP and the printer is online but I can't print from it. So, I decided to uninstall the printer and reinstall it again. This is where another problem occurs. When I try reinstalling it, my laptop seems to be unable to find the printer (I have entered the IP address of my Printer but the printer still can't be found). Oh, and by the way, other laptop seems to be able to print a document from that printer.
So I have a Brother MFC-8660DN connected to my LAN via Ethernet cable, however I now want to move the printer to another room, but don't want to run the ethernet cable to it's new location. There are a ton of linksys wrt54g routers for cheep and I wondered if I could just move the printer and plug into a wrt54g router to connect to my LAN via a wifi signal rather than directly via ethernet cable. It seems like it should work, however because the wrt54g isn't hooked to a computer I'm not sure that this would work.
Connected our Brother MFC-8820D printer/scanner/fax directly to one of the 4 Ethernet ports on the back of the DIR-655 in our new install with this router, and all computers can print to it, whether connected via an Ethernet cable or via wireless, but none of the printers can scan. We just get an error message. Scanner driver is installed on all computers. Same printer worked fine via Ethernet on a Windows small business server for printing and scanning. Windows server no longer used or connected. Only DIR-655 as we are dumbing down and getting rid of our Windows server and have gone to a NAS solution connected to the DIR-655.
What can we do to make the scanning work on our Multifunction printer?
I have had the E4200 for a while with a Brother MFC-J615W printer. I have been having problems keeping the connection between my laptop(HP) and the printer ever since I switched to this router. The only thing that works is completely reinstalling the driver, and then it is touchy when searching the network for the printer. The port and IP address for my printer match, and when I tried pinging my printer, I do not have any success. My laptop registers the printer as offline, as does the router when I go into the devices on the router(via mylocalrouter). To spot check the issue, I have switched the router back to my old one(Belkin) and the printer works flawlessly. I have always been able to connect the printer to the network without any problems, but my laptop and router dont recognize it.
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.
My network card went bad. So I replaced the card with a Dynex Gigabit card and it seemed to work. Used the computer that day but the next day the computer wouldn't power up. So I checked the computer, the cabel, the plug, etc.. I pulled the new network card and the computer powered up just fine but no internet. Well, I thought, must be gremlins and re-installed the network card. Again, the computer wouldn't power up. So I spoke to Dynex technical support and the guy I spoke to suggested that the card might be a bad card. So I got a second Dynex card; replaced that and same thing; computer wouldn't power up. If I fiddle with the card (pull and re-set) the computer starts but the computer won't start again after I turn it off. So I said, matbe it's a "cheap" card and went to another computer store and got a D-Link Gigabit Desktop PCI Adapter, installed (along with new software after having removed the old Dynex software) and; same thing.
SO, I am at my wits end. What is causing my Dell XPS 420 to behave like this. I don't want to resort to Dell because their technical support costs are outrageous.
I have dell dimension 3000 computer running windows 7 ultimate,behind dir 855 dlink router.I am thinking of upgrading my machine to wireless n but my system only supports pci only cards.Is there anywhere i can collection of pci cards.I googled but it seems pci only are in scarce supply.
In the past few weeks, my desktop's wireless connection has become impossibly slow and laggy. It takes long times to load and routinely drops or stutters in its connection, which makes online gameplay very inefficient if not impossible. Prior to this, it was running fine.My wife's netbook and my work laptop both run normally and fine off the connection. The ping rates for those computer, tested at the exact same time as my desktop, are both good while my desktop's ping and jitter are horrible. So I have the feeling it is not really a networking issue, but more something with the wireless card or another issue with my desktop itself. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 531, probably about 3 years old, which as I mentioned ran fine with the wireless before. I am running Vista. In the past several months, the computer fan would kick in really hard and often at graphically intense moments though it doesn't do it any more (yes, it is still running at normal speed), so I'm not sure if the card itself was overheated and damaged? Since the others run fine?
So my old dell computer cannot connect to wireless internet, so it is connected to a Netgear internet bridge box. The other bridge box is in the basement where it is connect to the modem. I believe the location of the other box is almost directly below were my computer stand (and bridge box) used to be.I recently I moved it to different corner of my house that is about 15 feet further than the previous location. Now the wired internet speed is almost unbearable and inconsistent. The wireless speed is the same, but wired is really bad. I believe it is because the bridge boxes are further away from each other.I've tried unplugging and replugging, resetting, and etc.I would really like to know how I can fix this without moving the computer back since the furniture is in a really nice place and the computer would ruin the look.
I have a wireless network using an Apple Airport router. There is an iMac, an IBM Think Pad and a Dell XPS 410 tower (both running XP) on the network and all were working until this week. All of a sudden I can not get on the internet with the Dell PC. When I try to log into the router, it searches for a connection, but never is able to attain one. My network is displayed and I am using WPA security and have been entering the correct key. I have tried reinstalling the drivers, but with no success. I believe I was able to access a local unprotected site, but after being connected a pass word was required. I also tried ipconfig, but it just flashed on and then immediately off.
I have a Dell Dimension 5000 and I want to transfer the computer to connect via wireless. I have bought a wireless dongle installed all the sot wear but my computer will still not connect to the modem in my house. Is this particular model able to connect via wireless. Or do I need to install more software.
I have a Dell Inspiron, Win7 Home Premiun, 64 bit, N4110 Laptop and a Dell Optiplex GX520 with Win7 Professional, 32 bit desktop and I'd like to be able to share files. The laptop can see the desktp on my network but can't access any of the files. My desktop can't see the laptop at all. BTW, I do have MS Security Essentials running on the laptop and the Windows Firewall is on - the desktop is set up the same way.
When I try to set up a HomeGroup I get an error message that says "Can't set up a HomeGroup on this computer".
