  • I'm trying to set up a wireless network and it is said that something does not work with the driver.

    Hi there tried to hook my laptop up to wireless as ethernet cable keeps me tripping. I am complete technophobe and propably have the only laptop that gets used especially to open the door.

    Have tried everything I can think even threaten her with glass of water after trying to connect to the wireless network, that it is said that there is something that doesn't work not with the driver if it means something to you. I have a toshiba, if it helps.
    Thank you
    original title: I hope someone can help technophobe

    It is said that there is something not working only not with the driver

    You probably need to install some network drivers for your wireless card.

    Download drivers

    Visit the manufacturer's Web site and select your computer model (this is usually done in the Support section). You should be able to download drivers for your model. Download the driver (s) and follow the instructions to install - every computer is different, so I can't give you exact directions. You can also try to use Windows Update to get drivers - it is located in the start menu.

  • Hi dear, I just set up my connection wireless network with password

    Hi dear,

    I just set up my network with password wireless connection and configure my router on the IP 192.168.1.2. , but to be

    honest im not sure person cannot access my network and record everything I have on my computr.is is it safe? Please tell me know if you

    don't know.

    Hi saba161,

    If you have the security key settings of the wireless network that turns on encryption. With encryption, people cannot connect to your network without the security key. In addition, any information that is sent on your network is encrypted so that only computers that have the key to decrypt the information can read it. This can help prevent attempts to access your network and your files without your permission. Common wireless network encryption methods are Wi Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA2.

    Safety is always important; with a wireless network, it is still more important, because your network's signal could go beyond the boundaries of your home. If you don't secure your network, people with computers nearby may be able to access the information stored on computers on your network and use your Internet connection to get on the web.

  • I'm trying to access a wireless network with the password provided for me. I get the following error message

    I'm trying to access a wireless network with the password provided for me. I get the following error message: "the network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 characters ascii or hexadecimal 10 or 26. "what does this error message mean and how do I address so that I can access the wireless network?

    I use XP Professional with service pack 3. I get this error message every other time I try to log in to a protected wireless network security. I used to not get this message; but, now, it may be impossible, sometimes to call all wireless providers when I might only need for a short period or after hours service opening.

    In addition, it is my computer that requires the network password to be different, not the provider of wireless. A password is given to me who works for other users, but my computer won't let me use it.

  • Create wireless network with airport Time Capsule

    I replace my ISP provider rented the modem / router with a modem, I bought and I would use my gen current airport Time Capsule to set up the wifi network. I can't find the instructions on how to proceed and AirPort Extreme do not seem to apply.

    I am running OS X Capitan 10.11.3 on an early 2015 MacBook Pro.

    Thank you!

    Dale

    I can't find the instructions on how to proceed and AirPort Extreme do not seem to apply.

    Hmm.  A time Capsule is an AirPort Extreme with a built-in hard drive, so what works for one should work for the other and vice versa. You might be looking at old operating instructions?

    Since you've decided to add a new modem, Time Capsule will be reset back to the default settings and then set it up again to work with the new modem.  Apple installation "wizard" will guide you in installing the time Capsule, by appointing a wireless network, set up a password, etc, so the process is very easy to name.

    The installation provided with your Time Capsule Guide goes on how to set up the time Capsule.

    After resetting the time Capsule to factory default settings, you would connect an Ethernet cable from the modem into the "O" on the Time Capsule WAN port.

    To get the "Assistant" Setup running, just click the WiFi icon at the top of the screen of the Mac and are looking for the new AirPort base station. Just below that, click directly on the Time Capsule.  The example below shows an AirPort Extreme, but you would see on your screen time Capsule.

    When you click on the Time Capsule, the next screen that is displayed looks like this, except that you will see a picture of a Capsule of time on your screen.

    Simply click next to get the process going and follow the instructions.

    My mother has a desktop in Vista and two laptop computers, 1 on Vista and XP 1. the office is connected to the internet and has a wireless modem. the two laptops are wireless connections and both can connect to the internet using the wireless. The printer is connected to the desktop computer and file/printer sharing enabled. I can't connect to a home network.

    I tried to run the tutorial "set up a home network" and solve problems, but since they are different versions that the buttons are not in the same place and are marked differently.

    Hello

    This"the desktop computer is connected to the internet and a wireless modem" , is not clear.

    To have a coherent network, the Modem is connected to the network, the router must be connected next Modem WAN, and the wire from the computer or the wireless must be connected to the router.

  • Unable to connect to a wireless network with Windows 7 computer laptop.

    After resetting my router netgear wireless home network, I have not been able to access my own network with my laptop. I already had access to the internet with a wireless ethernet cable and ankles bound to the router. After reset the netgear router, I was able to access the internet from two other laptops XP and an Acer mini wireless with no problems at all. But my new laptop Toshiba with Windows 7 could not connect, even if he could detect the network. I tried all day even resort to the ethernet socket and wireless cable, but even that would no longer work. I was able to connect using this same cable attached.

    Hello

    Seems that the Wireless does not work on the Dell.

    This is the process to try to find what wrong with it.

    ------------------

    Assuming that wireless router is configured correctly, it is a signal and the wireless card on the computer is physically in.

    Maybe this can help.

    These steps and tell us where is the breaking point.

    Check the Device Manager for the wireless card valid entry.

    http://www.ezlan.NET/Win7/net_dm.jpg

    If there is no valid entry, remove any entry from fake and re - install the drivers for the wireless card.

    Check network connections to make sure that you have a network icon/entry wireless connection, and that the properties of the icon (right-click on the icon) are correctly configured with the TCP/IPv4 protocol in the properties of network connections.

    http://www.ezlan.NET/Win7/net_connection_tcp.jpg

    ------------------

    The wireless card drivers much also install utility wireless of the seller.

    To ensure that if there is Wireless Utility a seller is not running with the native Windows wireless utility (Service WLAN).

    ----------------

    Make sure you firewall No. preventing / blocks wireless components to join the network.

    Some 3rd AV/Firewall/security software part, s costume keep blocking aspects of Local traffic even it they are off (disabled).

    If possible set up the firewall correctly, /Security costume otherwise totally uninstall and get rid of its remaining processes that permit the own local network traffic flow.

    If the 3rd party software is uninstalled, or disables, make sure Windows native firewall is active .

    party like Hello and NetMagic 3rd network managers can block local traffic too.

    ---------------------------

    Stack TCP/IP work should look like.

    Right-click on the wireless network connection card, select status, details and see if she got an IP address and the rest of the settings.

    http://www.ezlan.NET/Win7/status-NIC.jpg

    Description is the data of the card making.

    The physical address is MAC of the card number.

    The xx must be a number between 0 and 255 (all xx even number).

    YY should be between 0 and 255

    ZZ should be between 0 and 255 (zz all the same number.)

    The date of the lease must be valid at the present time.

    * Note 1. IP that starts with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx isn't valid functional IP.

    * Note 2. There could be an IPv6 entries too. However, they are not functional for Internet or LAN traffic. They are necessary for Win 7 homegroup special configuration.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    A message in the small window that says connected wireless doesn't means that you are really a valid functional connection.

    Above everything is OK, you must be able to connect to the router.

    Connection to the router means that you can enter the IP of the router base in an address bar in one go, being able to connect and configure the router menus see.

    If it doesn't connect to the router, journal newspaper from any computer that can connect to the router wirelessly with a wire, disable wireless security, make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled and try to connect with no. wireless security.

    Enable security wireless after you eat to make a functional connection.

  • Extension of wireless network with 2 capsules of time falls internet router

    I have a fiber broadband from the Danish supplier, TDC. A port on the router, I connected a TimeCapsule 1 generation and one of its ports, I have a cable to a new TimeCapsule in another room. The first TC is set to create a wireless network and the new TC is set to extend a wireless network. Both are on the same wireless name and password and both have the clipping value. This is according to the instructions that I found here on the forum.

    HOWEVER. When you use this router configuration mentioned above keeps falling and interruption of the Internet connection. What could happen?

    If I let the TCs create two wireless router maintains a stable Internet connection.

    On each TimeCapsule, there are a number of devices connected to their respective ports. All IP are chosen by DHCP. I assume that the router is the only DHCP server and that the CHT are not IP for connected devices.

    Any help to solve this is appreciated.

    To connect nr2 nr1 TC but not the TDC router. The ports on the TC are just parallel connectors (except the one that connects the modem). Then you must set both to create a network: you have two networks.

    Then give them the same name and password (or not, what you want).

    When you want to extend the network, do not connect the cable to the nr2, but you should put nr2 where he received the Wifi of nr1 and then extend it. This also works, but is much less bandwidth.
