Can't Connect to Internet on Wireless

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Currently having a few issues with my sig rig. One of which is internet connection issues. I'm currently back at my dad's house for a week and a half for my winter break from school. We have a wireless router hooked up (Belkin Wireless router, F5D6231-4 v1000), which I think does B network. My desktop has a Linksys WM54G v4.1 PCI card, which is capable of up to G.

This combination has worked for me in the past, but I remember having certain issues with setting it up.

I get a prompt asking for the security key, which I enter correctly. My computer is able to connect to the network, but does not obtain internet access.

I try the Windows diagnose/repair options of new IP or resetting the adapter, but neither yields positive results.

I recently reinstalled Vista, and haven't gotten around to reinstalling the wireless adapter until today, since I don't use it at school. Perhaps there is some default setting I need change, but I forget what to do, I'm really not that good with networking as I barely have to tweak it.

Also, I think there may be a step I need to take where I use a browser to access my router, but I foget what the default IP is for it, so I can't get to it.

I really want to fix this, so I can stop competing for internet time on the family computer (which is an uber POS anyway).

Thanks! Any quick suggestions may be sent to my AIM/MSN/Yahoo names, since I can connect to those from my phone (which hopped on the wireless before I dropped my laundry bag down when I walked in the door).

Ugh, frustration. On to post about my other issue now.

Bump for help. Also, I'm not 100% but I think you would need to set your card to a "b" wireless setting or something. I don't think b and g are compatible.

I'm not sure how to set it to just do B though if that's what I need to do.

Wouldn't that prevent me from connecting the the router in the first place though? I am told that I am connected to my wireless router, but not getting internet access (cable modem separate from the router).

It sounds like his router is capable up to G. You might need to check what channel it is broadcasting in, however. It might be broadcasting G only, in which case you won't receive internet.

Once connected to the router, go to the webpage, 192.168.0.1 (address may differ depending on brands). Once there, enter the admin user name and password. By default it is usually: username = (blank space) password = admin; Or try a combination of the two.

Once there, find your wireless settings. There should be an option to change the operating channel. I'll keep checking back to help

EDIT: It looks as though Belkin's login page is at 192.168.2.1

Did you change the channel (numbers that indicate the frequency) or did you change the 802.11 Mode (a/b/g)?

I didn't see an option for changing the mode, I only changed the "wireless channel" (I have the options of 1-11). I don't think my router is capable of G, as it is a couple years old, but it may. I'm not sure.

I have the encryption set to 128bit auto, and set a 10-digit passphrase. I type that passphrase in when prompted for it on my computer.

One of the options it gives is that the WEP key may be invalid. Should I try setting the encryption to 128bit manual and see if that does anything?

try removing the encryption altogether and see if you can get the internet, first.
