    Router


    Hello,

    I have internet from an LAN connection.

    I want to use a wireless router to connect to the internet. So i used a netgear wireless router connected it to the internet. I placed my user name and password into the basic settings. However the router does not connect to the internet?

    Could someone advise on this situation.

    Thanks

    Im sure they are correct. I just placed the username and password into the router settings as if I would be connecting manually however no connection.


    I get a orange i on the router indicating there is something wrong.

    Yes, I Hate them Orange Lights
    I Suppose you are able to see your wireless network on your computer/laptop. When it comes to the SSID Part, There Should be an option to Broadcast it. Make Sure that you can see your Wireless Network and when you do connect, Make Sure you are Typing in the Correct Network Key Normally known as a PSK (Pre-Shared Key). Make sure your Wireless Security is set something along the lines of WPA+PSK2.

    Just Check those settings. I'm rpetty Positive its got something to do with those Settings.

    Kind Regards

    Do you havew a Manual IP Set or Do you Have DHCP setup where your'e router gives you a IP Automatically?

    If This still doesnt work. Reset your Router to Factory Default Settings and Reconfigure your'e wireless.

    If it's a Netgear router, is it the "check mark" looking light that is orange? If so, that means your router is not connecting the correct IP from your ISP modem. Do you have cable or dsl?

    Log into the router and see what the WAN IP address is and let us know. This doesn't sound like a local DHCP problem.

    What is the IP address of your laptop when you connect wirelessly (just to confirm)?
