Wireless :: Connect Laptop With Wifi In Home And Office?
Feb 8, 2013
I have my laptop. I need to use my broadband connection at my home. Also I need to use my laptop with wifi at my office. We do not have any dhcp servr at office. What I am doing now is changing ip configuration at office every day manually.
I have an Acer 5741Z laptop that I recently got out of the shop (had jack replaced). Now I'm having issues connecting to the internet at my home. The computer detects my Belkin router/network, but when I click on Connect I keep getting the message "unable to connect".
My laptop (Lenovo g560) runs windows 7 Home ed. About 3 months ago my parents changed the wifi password and so my laptop was unable to connect to our home internet, and I never bothered to fix it. It's been 3 months and now when I need to connect, it won't. The network appears in the list of detected networks, i correctly typed in the new requirements of the SSID, and when i press 'connect' it instantly pops up with 'Windows was unable to connect to XXXXXXX'. The modem is from Netgear. I've tried switching the modem off and on, the wireless activation swith on my laptop off and on, the Fn+F5 for wireless and bluetooth off and on, reinstalled drivers etc.I know its not a problem with my modem as wifi works for other mobile devices (like my iphone, other laptops etc), and my laptop has no problem connecting to the uni wifi network. There only seems to be a problem with connecting my laptop to the home network. Perhaps i've tried fiddling around with the 'properties' of the network too much and I've accidentally changed some settings i was not supposed to? how to restore the wireless settings of this network 'back to default' or in the state it was when i was able to connect.
I have a group of five computers at one end of my home office and another group of four computers across the same room. All are hardwired on the same internal network. These cannot be consolidate or moved into one corner or closet. There just is not the space and it's just physically not possible.There is one Internet router as provided by the local cable company. I have this connected to a LinkSys WRT54G2 broadband router. A Netgear DS108 8-port hub is connected the LinkSys. All computers either connect to the Netgear hub or to the LinkSys router. As of now, the WiFi from the LinkSys router is only ever used by my cell phone while at home.
This set up is annoying. At first I did not mind, but there are cables on the floor that I have to step over. These CAT5 cables connect one set of computers to the LinkSys or Netgear. I have to watch where visitors are walking or stepping to assure they don't trip.How can I keep these computers on the same network and eliminate just those cables crossing the floor of my home office?Should I use WiFi NICs? Would this overwhelm the WiFi on the LinkSys?
I have a Dell XPS L321X, ultrabook, which can connect to wifi except a specific office wifi, say TPR. The interesting thing is I can connect to this TPR wifi when nobody is in office, I thought it might be an IP conflict. So I tried to assign a static IP address, but it doesn't work. I have updated the wifi adapters two days ago.I tried few things like IPCONFIG /RELEASE, IPCONFIG /RENEW, but nothing works. The security type of all the wifi in my office are WPA-PSK and they all have good strength. We use sharepoint services for our daily office work, which can be accessed only using a TPR wifi. It's frustrating that I cannot connect to it.
looking for opinions on a Wireless Access Point/Bridge/Repeater/Router I might buy and setup for a the home workstation, few wireless devices, and future add-ons.

My Wifi network has a wpa2 password that is a random string of characters and numbers and yet last month a rogue IP Address kept popping up on my DNS list. It has to be coming from my neighbor who's bedroom is about 15 feet away from my router. So unless someone is sitting out on my front lawn to do this then it must be him.I've been looking for software that will notify me when a connection my router is attempted and kudos if it also asks my permission first would be great.There are wifi packet sniffers out there like Cain&Abel, Airsnort, that sort of thing but I am not quite savvy enough nor do I want to turn this into a complicated hobby but just need a basic warningin case something gets past my passwords again
My home network consists of a Linksys WRT54GL router running DD-WRT supplying wired access to my desktop, a bridge to another WRT54GL (also running DD-WRT) to provide a wired connection to a XBOX upstairs, and wireless access to about 5 or 6 different devices including several laptops, an iPad, and an iPod touch. My question is this:
I am adding a 22" TV into my office so I can watch TV while working on my desktop. I only have one cable jack in my office which is currently plugged straight into my cable modem. This means I'll have to use a splitter to give both my TV and modem cable access. How much signal degradation or speed do I stand to lose or should expect to lose?
I'm having a bit of a trouble with my eMachines netbook M250. I was going to contact their customer support, but for some reason their services kept telling me that "That serial number is not in our database".I have 3 laptops and a desktop PC. Two of my laptops are connected through wireless and my Desktop PC through a cable. Now this small isnt finding the wireless network my other computer are connected to. It has found all other wireless networks, tons of them (neighbors, city wifi, etc), but just cant find my home wifi.I have reinstalled windows XP and reinstalled the wireless drivers. Also checked that they're the newest out there.
My laptop suddenly stops detecting my home wifi network, when all other laptops n gadgets in the house is able to. I am able to see other available wifi networks but not mine when it is just 2 mtrs away.
How can I connect a vista laptop to existing wireless home network with other 3 [COLOR=#000096 !important][COLOR=#000096 !important]xp[/COLOR][/COLOR] machines.I followed googled info but keep chasing my tail as all effords end trying to make an internet connection. [code] is Negear wired & wireless capable in which 2 PCs are wired & an Acer netbook wireless connected, all 3 XP machines.
The wireless Internet at home is not working on my laptop anymore. It's working fine on my mobile as well as with other wireless networks at school for example. No matter what browser I use I usually dont get to any website. Most of the time it says access: local only, or local and internet, or limited connectivity. If I'm lucky at the right time I can open a website but then it's gone again.
I have reset my router for the reason that all of our laptops cannot to internet. I configure the router, then the internet is ok, but some of our laptops cannot connect to internet. What is the possible problem? How am I supposed to fix this problem?

I have been using this router for around 8 to 9 months now. Everything was working fine till one week back. Now I am facing problem with my office emails. I cannot get my office emails while on WiFi network. Outlook is not able to connect to my office server and I don't receive my emails. Rest everything works fine. Initially i used to get all the emails while using this WiFi router. When I connect my internet cable directly to my laptop, i am able to receive all the emails in my office outlook inbox.
I am also using my Samsung Galaxy S3 on this WiFi network. And my office outlook is configured in it. I am facing the same problem with my phone as well, it started recently, around one week back, as already informed above.However, when i switch on my mobile internet, all the new emails start coming to my inbox, which means that there is some problem with WiFi network.
What I am supposed to do which will enable me to receive all the office emails while on this routers WiFi network. Its giving me a hard time.
I have been having a bit of trouble with networking my two machines to share files and allow printing i have a win 7 laptop and a xp home desktop. I share a net connection via 02 wireless box both systems have wireless i have tried many things
I have a very high speed connection in my dad's office, and it is over 10 mbps. and the connection in my house is worse ( 256 kbps ). So can I use the office connection in home without any problems from the ISP. just like sharing the connection from the office to home.
I had an SMC router before, and I replaced it with this new D-link DIR-655, The problem I am now having is that I used to visit a web based e-mail /OWA Outlook Web Access, After I VPN to my company, but now with this new D-Link after I VPN, I lost the capability of accessing my OWA to read my e-mail
My laptop can no longer connect to my home network. It used to connect fine, but I was having problems with my graphics card as every time I went on Youtube it would crash. As a result, I sent it into ASUS (it is an ASUS K52J Series) and got the motherboard and the hard drive replaced. After this, my laptop seemed to be working great. It connected to a variety of networks, including 3 home networks, and 2 public networks. However, it cannot connect to the network in my apartment.
I know this network works and is connectable as my roommate's laptop works perfectly fine. So I know it is not a problem with my laptop since it connects to other networks, and I know it is not the network since other laptops connect to it. I've tried resetting my adapter, I've tried turning off the firewall. Also, I've tried the trouble shooting option numerous times after trying a variety of things that usually fix the connectivity, but it always says that the problem cannot be detected.
It's starting to be really frustrating, especially since I'm in university and sharing a laptop when both my roommate and I need to do work is not convenient.
How to access remotely over the Internet to office PC from my home PC and get files that I need? Office's ADSL modem's model is BeWan iBox V1.0 and it has a built-in firewall. ADSL connection has a dynamic IP, which I assume should be configured as static (but how?) Should I investigate VPN capabilities as well? I'm not very knowledgeable about these things.
I just got a new Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5357. It's running Windows 8. I can't get it to connect to my home wifi--it just says "Can't connect to this network" and nothing else. I did unplug and plug back in the router (does that count as resetting?) and it didn't change anything. I just went to the library and it connected to that wifi without a problem. While there I uninstalled all Norton security products and installed AVG Free 2013. Still not working.
