Having problems with your Compaq Computer Monitors ?

Can't get internet access!!

\015 I have 2xPc's on a cable modem running on internet via a Di-524 wireless router. I'd like to hitch my Compaq nx5000 laptop to my small network, but I,ve hit a stumbling block. I've loaded the driver for the router onto the laptop, connected up the Ethernet cable as well as plugged the USB device into the appropriate slot, but I can't get a connection. My principle computer is an "Acer Aspire M3100" running vista and my second computer is a "Compaq presario AMD Athlon" running XP Home Edtion. I am running XP Home Edition on the laptop. I don't have the USB device attached to the second Pc as it runs fine with the Ethernet cable and once I connected my second computer up, it went to work immediately and I didn't have to do a thing to get it going. Can you please help me with this problem? \015

Answers :

The proper procedure in any router based network is to get the router on the network first. Plug it into the online cable modem and boot it up. Let it sit for a minute and then boot up wired computers one at a time. Use one of the wired PC's to get into the routers GUI (eg. 192.168.1.1) and see if WiFi is turned on and the permissions or wireless access is not being blocked by any security settings like MAC address or IP filters. It should be wide open. You dont need ANY drivers for a router on a PC unless they are USB drivers for a USB connection straight to the router, never seen one but I have seen a cable modem/router that had a USB connection. If your laptop has a USB wireless device, you need to load the drivers for that onto your laptop, but if it is using the built in ethernet port on the rear or a PC card ethernet card, you just need to plug the ethernet cable to the rear of the router and boot up. Make sure your ethernet device is enabled in windows and you should be good to go. After you gain access to the internet on the wireless device, get back into your router, prefferably on the wired computer and lock your network down with security measures like MAC address filtering, WEP, or other means.
