Routers / Switches :: Connect A Wired Pc To A Wifi Laptop?
Jan 31, 2011
I've got a PC(windows 7) connected to a wired router(not wifi), and I also have a laptop that shares the internet with the PC using wifi. A wired printer is connected to the PC. Is it possible for me to share files and print using laptop? (Wifi Connected to a Wired Internet connection)
I have a Netgear WGR164v9 wireless router connected to internet directly by public IP and this router performing DHCP for wireless LAN ip subnet is 192.168.1.x. A server (DNS,DHCP & RRAS with NAT) connected with this router by ip 192.168.1.6 which has another subnet 192.168.10.x for LAN PCs. In this situation everything is fine like internet browsing. The only problem is wireless PCs (192.168.1.x) can't connect with wired LAN PCs (192.168.10.x). The router ip is 192.168.1.1. How can I configure to connect those two subnet's PCs?
I have a laptop connected to a net gear wireless router (for internet), but I am very close to buying a Belkin network USB hub to make my hard drive wireless, but this requires a router. I do not want move my hard drive to where my net gear router is, so I need to get another router, i am looking at a Belkin router so that I can make my hard drive wireless (This is the only reason for the router, it will not be used for internet) so I can keep my hard drive in the same place.
i am trying to hook up a laptop to internet that is over ten years old. when i try to set up a wireless network it say there's no dial tone. also when i start it up it says "Network Wireless Update, Router is unavailable". i was going to try an Ethernet cord but there is no Ethernet port on the laptop. what do i do?
I changed my netgear wireless router password and now my laptop will not connect to the router or to the internet. It has no popup to put the new password. I have no problem logging on with my phone...just the laptop.
I just bought a sony vaio laptop and I can't connect to the wireless network, it appears back and forward a message saying that the adapter is not found and then it says it is working and then it is not found again and so no.. Tried to connect the laptop using the WPS button but it did not work either.
I have a router connected to my computer for the many laptops and netbooks used in my home. My computer is down for a bit.I have an internet card, but no one else can use their laptops/ netbooks.Can I also connect my router to my laptop for multiple use in the household?
What i am trying to do is that i have a server in my store which has a running software for the store. I have a TP Link Wifi card installed in my pc.. i need to access the server using an ip through the ethernet cable. And i access the internet via the wifi device installed and running in my pc. the problem now here is that i cannot access both of the simultaneously. If i connect back the ethernet cable the browser does not browse or the internet does not work.. and i can access my server software.. as i unplug the ethernet cable my wifi card installed starts working all good and i can use the internet.. i have tried a little of soultions but have not been successfull enough to use both the connections simultaneously..
my computer will connect wired to internet and can find the wireless connection but wont connect. my wireless icon flashes intermitently and my mobile will work via wifi. do i need a new router this one is a G wireless Modem router Belkin had it for about 4 years?
I cannot get my new Nook Tablet to connect to my home wifi. it recognizes the network and authenticates the password but won't connect. Everything else in the house connects fine.Someone installed the router for me a couple years ago as a favour. It is a Linksys router.
I have a two year old Toshiba laptop that no longer connects to the internet either via ethernet cord plugged into the laptop nor my home wireless network. I have disabled the firewalls and the problem continues. The Network Connection screen shows the computer connected locally but not no internet connection. The laptop is running Windows Vista.
I have a HTPC running XP and a Media Player connected on the same wired network. I also have a Win7 laptop connected to the same network over Wifi.
From the laptop I want to send files between the HTPC and Media player on the wired network however if I drag and drop or use the "send to" option they are sent via the wirelss laptop which is very slow.
Am I missing a trick how can I send files directly between the 2 devices?
I have a D-Link DIR -655 wireless router connected to my Time Warner Cable modem upstairs. Downstairs I have a PS3, Wii, Logitech Revue and a HP laptop. I get low signal strength downstairs(many walls) and would like to run an Ethernet cable downstairs to my devices. What hardware do I need downstairs to hard wire those devices? Not sure if router or switch and what kind. Do I need to make any changes to my existing D-Link wireless router? I want to keep the wireless available for cell phones and the HP laptop.
I have 3 PCs (win7-64) connected to a wired gigabit network to achieve fast transfer of large files. Separately, at a distance, I have a modem-router to access the Internet. Internet access for the 3 PCs is achieved with each PC connected wireless to the latter modem router. The 2 networks are running OK and PCs can connect each other on both networks. Question: How can I know and achieve that the gigabit network is used for file transfers and not the slower wireless network? How should configure both routers and PCs to achieve this? I don't need the wireless setup to be a network, just to provide wireless access for each PC and that's it. I used to have the gigabit LAN configured with a Dlink DAP1522 bridge that created a single wireless connection between this wired LAn and the modem-router but it stopped working and I'm pretty done with it.
I'm trying to upgrade my existing Netgear wired router to a Netgear N600 wireless router. I was really hoping just to replug in everything and go. But because the wired router is setup for 192.168.1.1 when I plug in the wireless router it thinks nothing is plugged in because it too wants to use that IP address. How do I disable the wired settings
Can I have a wireless access point connected, by wire, to say 2 PCs and a wireless router connected to the internet (+ other PCs) and the link between the access point and router is wireless (i.e. not wired)
2 routers in series, is one more secure. I recently asked about setting up two routers in series as routers, one wireless one not. It was my understanding that the computers on the second router would not be visible to computers on the first router, the wireless one. My assumption was that this would make it more difficult for someone who got access to the wireless router to also access those computers on the second router.
Adding ports to my Fairpoint provided Westell 7500 Rev D DLS modem router which has only 4 RJ45 ports. Bought a Linksys SE2500 gigabit smart switch but it doesn't assign IP or pass on router assigned IPs. Can't get ASSISTANCE from Fairpoint [successor to Verizon] configuring router or any advice on other ways to get more wired devices on LAN.For speed in backups I'd like 3 devices to be able to communicate at giabit speed Want to have an NAS and 2 Win7 Ultimate computers on smart switch, 3 other wired devices [WinXP, AT&T Cell tower, & DirectTV whole house SWM interface] and wireless on the router. 1. Are Fairpoint specs for DSL published so I could get another DSL modem router instead of the Westell or is it better to configure Westell as a router only and use a new to be acquired router with or without the existing or a new gigabit switch. I have a DI-624 from the pre-DSL Hughesnet satellite days.2. Are there less smart switches which would work better and let router assign the IPs?3. If this is too complex for me, can you recommend a remote access consultant to walk me through this for a fee?4. I'm 82, have been in computing since 1960, mainly in on-line end user environment mbut don't know the bridging, PPP PPoE differences, and implementation or configuration details of current hard and software except as a user.
Recently I installed connectify because my uni flat only had one wired outlet, and I wanted to use my xbox at the same time. It worked perfectly, but when I returned home I found my laptop could no longer connect to the home network, it just says it cannot connect, but all the over devices in the house work. My laptop can still connect to the internet via an ethernet cable but this isnt practical at home. I've uninstalled the connectify program, and tried my best to make sure I got rid of all the stuff it's done, but still my problem persists
if I have my HP netbook connected to a wired or wireless connection I'm stuck on the "Acquiring network" prompt. I've followed along in previous threads up until a certain point. In the services page DHCP cannot start due to error 1075.
my laptop, as well as my moms laptop, were working perfectly fine on wedensday. Yesterday however, i was randomly getting kicked off the internet, and i came to realize that whenever both of our laptops were on, only one could connect to the internet. the other one couldn't find the DNS server or whatever.so, after some frustration windows finally told me (on my laptop) that two computers were sharing the same ip address on my network. made sense i guess. so i went to CMD, typed ipconfig /release on my laptop, but it said media was disconnected so it didn't work. i then went onto my moms laptop, typed the same thing in CMD, and it released it fine. but then her battery died so i plugged it in to renew her ip.
once her computer got enough of a charge to turn on i went to cmd and typed ipconfig /renew, but it wouldn't renew it, saying media was disconnected. so, now her laptop and my laptop will not connect to wireless.on my laptop, i transfered my documents to another HDD and did a fresh install of windows. but even since, my laptop will not connect to the internet. when i trouble shoot it it says something about no networking drivers are installed, but i can't even install drivers because i have no internet im on her laptop right now, it will connect via ethernet cable.

Recently I bought TD-W8151N wireless adsl router, I have one desktop computer that connected to TD-W8151N via ethernet and wirelessly to one laptop, IP Addr: 192.168.1.4, Subnet 255.255.255.0 and Gateway: 192.168.1.1 : desktop (LAN connection IP Addr: 192.168.1.3, Subnet 255.255.255.0 and Gateway: 192.168.1.1 : laptop (wireless connection) but I can't ping each other and also can't access the share folders between them., both computers can access internet. Is there anything I missed the configuration setting of the router? Before I use wireless, I connected this 2 computers using cross-type utp cable, and working good.
I would like to connect my USB WIFI dongle directly to my wired router, this would enable me to have wifi access without having my PC switched on all the time, is this possible and if so what kind of adapter do I need? I think I need USB A Female to Ethernet RJ45 Male Router Adapter.
Currently i have my wired router connected to my modem, with three desktops connected to it. I just purchased a laptop, and would like to be able to get internet on it, my question is what are my options to get internet on my laptop [wireless] yet still keep the wired connections on the desktops as is? And if thats not an option what would be the easiest solution?My laptop has a built in built-in LAN (802.11n), built-in 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet LAN with RJ-45 connector for quick and easy wired Web connection.
