Having problems with your Belkin PC Desktops ?

Trying to connect online with a new computer thru your wireless router. The computer(Insperon 530) doesn't recognize the connection. Techs are telling me it's the router. The router is working fine on two other computers in the house.


Answers :

Did you change the discovery options in Vista or did you leave it to\015\012the default. vista has the discovery map viewer if you can't see your\015\012router listed in this viewer then you have a problem. I ran into the\015\012same thing you're going through now.
\015\012
\015\012This is what I did...
\015\012
\015\012click on each one listed below
\015\0121. Flag
\015\0122. Network
\015\0123. first network view every network pc should be listed along with the router if not let's continue on
\015\0124. network and sharing center
\015\0125. network should be private not public for one thing
\015\0126. vista has IPv6 and IPv4 XP just had IPv4 (this allows you to change the DHCP)
\015\0127. manage network connections (right panel)
\015\0128. properties
\015\0129 everything in their should be checked off, but if you're having issues you might want to uncheck
\015\01210. IPv6 and just use IPv4.
\015\012
\015\012I use both and havn't seen any issues
\015\012
\015\012Now leave that popup open and go back to Network and Sharing Center
\015\012
\015\012Under the section called Sharing and Discovery (it should look like this)
\015\012
\015\012on
\015\012on
\015\012off
\015\012off
\015\012on
\015\012off
\015\012
\015\012What does the full map view show?
\015\012
\015\012Should be your computer name, the wireless router or wireless access point and the internet globe
\015\012
\015\012Way below that are the list of PCs on the network.
\015\012
\015\012Make sure your wireless encyption is set to either WEP64-128bit if you\015\012have WPA/WPA2 use those harder for anyone to break into the WPA/WPA2\015\012than it is with WEP keys.

Change the performance speed to 54Mbps for the wireless nic. To do this under Vista you need to go back:
\015\012
\015\012to network
\015\012managed network connection (left panel)
\015\012right click on your wireless network connection
\015\012click on properties
\015\012click on configure
\015\012click on advance
\015\012change Rate/speed whatever it's called to a Value: 54 (don't use best rate or etc)
\015\012
\015\012If you don't see this last feature mentioned then, go to your laptop maker web site and get the latest driver for that model.
\015\012Note: You should see 5 bars all lit up green. If you're see less then your wireless connection signal is weak. To fix that you
\015\012need to add wireless access point nearby. Otherwise the 54mbps won't be available always you'll see less than that.

If you're using N set the router for N speeds from 240 to 270mbps even though N is rated at 300Mpbs.

If no go above then goto below

Download the latest drivers from DELL and then uninstall the ones you\015\012have now. If the drivers are the same drivers you have. Then uninstall\015\012them anyway and reboot the laptop. If Vista doesn't see the or install\015\012the drivers then you just do it. Now make sure the follow is set up above.

Other than all of the above it's either a bad wireless NIC on the motherboard or the OS needs to be re-installed. These are the final methods but since this is new DELL should service the laptop for free. That's if you have to go that step.

Hi: Comcast connected my tv and pc yesterday but could not get the pc to recognize or pick up the comcast connection.

Obviously I am not at that computer so I can't do anything with it now. Can you give me some advice that I can try when I go there after work today? Thanks.
