Transform Ethernet LAN in to a wireless LAN

Question: Transform Ethernet LAN in to a wireless LAN

Hi guys,

In my office we have a windows server, 10 pc's and 3 printers. All devices are interconnected through a wired network. We have some business applications installed on the server and set up them to launch from client computers. As we are going to move to a new office space we have an intention to say goodbye to the wired network and make everything wireless. My question is will we be able to launch the programs which have being installed on server from client computers via wifi?

Thank you.

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PYGWG6

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

Any advice?

The wireless router's signal in my home is unable to reach the third floor of the house, which is incredibly frustrating. There is no option to move it to a more centralized location nor have the service provider technicians been able to provide any assistance in resolving the issue. I have recently become aware that there may be a way to turn my PC into a wireless router, which, when located on the second floor, would then boost the signal so that wireless devices could operate on the top floor without interruption.

Any comments, advice, and/or suggestions would be most appreciated in resolving this matter. Thank you.

A few days ago I bought th game No one lives forever 2.
It installed correctly,but when I ran the game this error appeard on the screen:

Error initializing rederer,Your graphic card must support TnL.(or sth. like this)

I don't care about the gme anymore(I sent it back)
But now I'm interested in knowing what is Hardware TnL really is?

Note:My VGA is a RADEON 7000/RADEON VE with 64mb ram
 

Answer:What is hdware TnL(Transform & Lighting)

A graphics card that supports Transform & Lighting, allows games supporting T&L to be displayed at there upmost quality. It renders the game with detail rich graphics, allowing for the creation of beautiful scenes, objects, textures etc.
As far as I know, (correct me if i'm wrong), nVidia introduced T&L it with it's Geforce line of cards, right back with the Geforce 256 'bout 2 years ago.
As for whether your card supports it, well this link doesn't show it anyway. http://www.ati.com/products/pc/radeon7000/
Hope this helped.

Hello,
Why is that in IE 10 when I open a XML file that has a reference to an XSL file (to perform a self-transformation on the XML file), the transformed XML output doesn't render as XML output with the "tags", but instead, it displays the node's data
content as raw text?
I've used older versions of IE to see the resulting (transformed) XML output (that was years ago... maybe it was 8?) and this was working. Am I missing anything? Is it an IE10 issue? What version works?

Thanks in advance,

Rick

Im in the market to buy a new laptop. I want to make sure my graphics card has the Hardware Transform and Lighting on it. How do I find out? Im looking at a laptop with an AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 420 and I cannot find any information on weather this card has HW T&L. Can anyone help?
 

Answer:Hardware transform and lighting

Hardware transform and lighting is something that has been around for ages. This is just a guess, but I don't think you could find a current graphics solution that doesn't have it.

I'm guessing that you want to know this in conjunction with the ability to game with the machine...? Or perhaps Photoshop? In either case you will likely be disappointed with the onboard video, hardware T & L or not.

Answer:file transform and setting

Hi,

No, that feature allows you to copy the Windows XP settings over to another computer, like if you purchased a new machine, and want to transfer files and settings to that new one from your old one. The settings are little customizations you may make, things you turn off or on or add as time goes by.
Windows XP is very into customizing....

Are you needing to use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard, to move things to a new computer?

I am not quite clear about what you want to do, is it something to do with clearing temporary Internet files?

Or clearing the History of where you went on the Internet?

Or, do you mean settings for Internet Explorer, like Security, Cookies, etc?

I think you're going to have to find your own font for that. There's no Unicode character designation for it, so you'll need a custom dingbats or symbols font that happens to have it.

I recently bought a new computer with Windows Vista (Only to discover Windows 7 is about to come out!!) and installed my favorite game from my old computer - Star Wars Battlefront 1.

I had no problems running it for the first month. No lag, highest dettings.
Then I think it was when I installed Direct X SDK that things went pair-shaped.
First it said it didn't detect TnL support, and every time a play the framerate is about 4 fps. It never buggs me about my TnL support anymore thoug.

I have a Intel(R) GMA 3100 Integrated Graphics chip.

I did some research and fount that this chip DOES have TnL, but many old games don't recognise it.
I uninstalled Direct X SDK, but it's still as bad.

Why did it work before, and not now?

Thanks
 

Answer:Starwars Battlefront 1 Transform and Lighting

Things to try:
1. Restart the computer and then try the game
2. Do a System Restore to a point at which the system was fine
3. Don't download any more DirectX SDK's, or any DirectX, unless you actually are told that you need it; If a game says you need a higher version, then the game will probably provide it on the game's disks. If not, you can download it also from Microsoft's site, but make sure you get the right version. But if a game says you need 9 or a lower number, don't install it if you already have 10 or higher--that game doesn't know about version 10+. To check your DirectX version, just search for "dxdiag" from the Start Menu, and somewhere in there it should tell you which version it is.

I have been contending with this issue for as long as I have had Windows 10. It has become a real annoyance in 2 years. Windows has always had ridiculously long paths to user accounts. I am the ONLY one who uses this computer, to the point where I do not even use a password at Startup. I do NOT need any of this!They remedied that in Windows 10, but when I set up Windows 10 I did not realize this. Consequently, when Explorer comes up, the left sidebar always features "This PC". So to get to my User Acct, I always have to go through the same old ritual: C>Windows>Users>Etc. The older I get, the more of a pain this is. I have fixed it so that a shortcut to the folder of all my own Docs resides on the Taskbar, making it somewhat easier. But there are more and more times when I have to navigate the LONG way when I am uploading to a browser, etc.There MUST be a way to transfer all of my files to THIS PC, or to access MY PC and point THIS PC in my direction. I just do not know it. I am sole user and Administrator of this computer, so this should be somehow possible??Any info greatly appreciated.

TIA

JPEG is an image, you can't just convert it to a text format like HTML. And any image you put online can be copied, no matter what format you put it in.

I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 4 port wireless broadband router with 2 x wireless laptops that can see each other and share files fine. I also have a PC which is hardwired to the router. All 3 machines have an IP address from the range I configured and all 3 machines can access the internet. The problem I'm having is that my hardwired PC cannot see the workgroup I have set up so therefore it can't see the 2 wireless laptops. The 2 wireless laptops can see the hardwired PC but cannot connect to it to view the shared folders.

I have switched all firewalls off, changed lots of config in the router, reset it to default, rebuilt my hardwired PC, pulled out some hair, changed network settings all over the place but just cannot get the hardwired PC to see the workgroup.

Any suggestions anyone ! !
 

Answer:! ! ! ! ! Ethernet Can't See Wireless ! ! ! ! !

Well, as long as all three are getting DHCP addresses from the same network, then the router isn't to blame, so, get it configured and leave it alone.

You say you've setup a workgroup for the laptops. That desktop machine also needs to be a part of that same workgroup. Then, you need to have the same username and password combination on the three machines, and then the desktop should be able to share files with the laptops.

And you definitely want the firewalls disabled until you get things working.

should I enable the wireless when I want to use the ethernet, my wireless works fine, but when I try to connect with ethernet, either no connection or connection drops after a short time, It is a dell desktop with windows xp,with netgear switch, and comcast modem,with mac airport, I need to get my ethernet high speed working that I pay for. PLEASE someone help
 

Answer:ethernet and wireless together

If I am going to use ethernet for an extended time I remove an external wireless adapter or switch an integrated wireless off. But that's to extend the life of the unused component and to save the battery if on battery. If you are using a PCI wireless card with the desktop then disabling it is probably the best you can do. But that is not going to impact your ethernet usage, so it is really your choice.

Please show the following for when you have an ethernet connection and for when it has dropped ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I used to access my home wireless with a Netgear N150 Wireless USB adapter. The device still works, because I use it for Roku, but my computer can't access the wireless network with it. As a replacement I installed a TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless N PCI adapter (TL-WN851ND). That hasn't worked from the start. During the course of trying to fix the problem, I changed at least 10 different settings, and none of them worked. Now, I've lost track of all the changes I made. What I want is to erase all of the previous settings and connections and act like my computer is fresh out of the box and has never been connected to the internet before. The TP-Link is what I want to use. Not knowing as much as everyone else on here about computers, I am assuming that the Netgear and TP-Link aren't the problems, and it is instead something with my computer.

I am with o2 and use their wireless router. I have used it wirelessly for the last three years because it was too far away from my computer. I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and the internet connection strength at the bottom of the screen shows up to three bars (normally only two).
This morning I managed to connect to the router using a 5 metre ethernet cable and the strength has gone up to four bars.
I can't see the difference. A speed test shows the same speeds 2.6 down 0.7 up.
Would I be just as well off being wireless? What difference does the strength from two bars to four bars make?
I would appreciate your comments please.

Is there such a thing as a 5 Ghz Ethernet card, or is just 5 Ghz wireless?

Answer:Ethernet vs. wireless

No - 2.4/5 GHZ refer to the wireless frequency.

Ethernet comes in two speeds mostly - older 100 Mb/s (100 megabits) or more modern 1000 Mb/s (1 Gigabit). Of course, these are usually much faster than internet speeds even for slower 100 Mb/s unless you have amazingly fast broadband.

Hi,I would like to know wether I could change my present USB Wireless connection to the ethernet connection.At present I am on BT Home Hub Box connected with a "2WIRE" USB wireless.All is OK but I find using my webcam my picture freeze's upnow and again and my last word spoken repeats about ten times.I think it might be better to use the ethernet wire as I now have the Home Hub box closer to my P.C. I would like to just change over rather than have to re-engineer the system in case I want to change back,any help would be great.Sam Gee

Answer:Wireless to ethernet

You could just try sticking the ethernet cable in and removing the usb. If it does not work you will have to run the setup cd again. If this cause problems you can always run system restore to put you back where you were.

I have a Wireless network in my house, in my garage i have a workroom, with a 5port hub and no wireless cards. If I buy a wireless bridge, can i plug it into the hub and bind it to my network, to allow computers to be plugged into the hub and get an IP?

So in essense want to take a wireless source and convert it back to ethernet in a specific location

So I just bought myself a new laptop (hp dv6910us) and I'm enjoying it thoroughly but I have a very basic question about what to use in terms of internet. In my apartment, I can easily connect to the internet through my ethernet connection or through the wireless. Both are smooth, fast connections. In terms of increasing the lifespan and battery-life of the computer, should I stick primarily to connecting through the ethernet or through my wireless connection? I have an Atheros AR5007 802.11 b/g WiFi adaptor and my processor is an AMD Turion X-2 TL-60 2Ghz with 3.00GB RAM. Running windows vista 32 Bit. It's a general question, not a pressing issue so answer at your leisure. Thanks.
 

Answer:Wireless vs. Ethernet

Not sure if anyone has ever bench marked something like that. But my gut feeling is that the wireless would draw a little bit more power but I have no evidence to back that up.

Here's something that is causing massive loss of hair.....

My PC is connected to my router with a wireless card. I also connect my PS2 to my PC using an ethernet connection (the ps2 is "modified" and I use this connection to play music and video thru the ps2 to the TV).

Everything works fine with one exception. It seems like the wireless is not getting a DNS. To obtain one, I have to disable the ethernet card, connect to my AP, then enable the card. If I lose my connect with the AP (which happens sometimes, it's on the other side of the house and the signal is a little weak), then when it reconnects I have to do the whole disable/enable thing.

It's not a huge deal, but I do like my stuff to work properly and usually things like this are not problem for me, but this one really has me wondering. Anyone have any ideas?

Here's my ipconfig /all if that helps. What's odd is the ipconfig is *exactly* the same when I can connect and when I can't. So maybe it's not a DNS issue, but something else. But I am unable to connect to any web sites until I disable and re-enable the ethernet card.

My BT HomeHub is in the same room as my PC and I have a wireless card.
I can also connect my PC to he hub using an ethernet cable. Which is preferable, also would one allow faster downloads over theother.

Answer:Ethernet Vs Wireless

A wired ethernet connection will always be more reliable than a wireless connection. In terms of speed, this is likely to be most significant in a Local Area Network where files are transferred between computers.
As far as the internet is concerned, unless you have a broadband connection of about 50Mbps, your connection from the computer to the router will always be much faster than your download internet connection, so wired or wireless makes little difference. Having said that, if you are running more than one computer "wirelessly", the available bandwidth is shared by them, unlike wired connections where each will have the full speed of the router's network switch, usually 100Mbps.

The office setup is wireless. When the printer throws a wobbly we're stuck until the support chap arrives. (They're good but busy.) There is an old Xerox machine which is not connected to the PC and is used for copying only. I checked the manual for this printer, online, and the connection to the PC is given as enthernet. I don't suppose it's as easy as plugging in an ethernet cable. Is it possible to connect this printer and use it in a wireless setup?

Answer:Wireless and ethernet

Depends on the model of the Xerox, the operating system and availability of drivers. I suspect that you may be able to connect it to the router by ethernet (not to the pc) and then use it. Are you sure that it is ethernet to pc?

First of all I have a DSL connection through my provider. I then have a NetGear FM114P wireless firewall/print server (router ) attached to the modem.

My computer is currently hardwired through the ethernet port in the FM114P router with two other computers connecting by WiFi.

What i was thinking, was loosing the ethernet cord and turning this computer in to a wireless connection like the other two, but if i do will i loose speed? This computer currently gets between 700-950 kbps., depending on traffic.

I need to know if this can be done. The situation:
Desktop has a integrated 10/100/1000 ethernet port.
-Apartment the owner lives in has Free Wifi for all residents.
-Desktop has no room for wireless card, is under warranty, and owner doesn't want to crack the case.


Is there a device that can be used to plug into the Ethernet - to a "hub" of sorts, to transmit wirelessly to get the free Wifi signal? (so internet browsing is possible upon this particular PC without voiding warrenty or paying for seperate net...)


if so... link examples or provide exact names. I am getting mixed results with Google.

I know some USB wireless devices are available for this - but those can get pricey, and the owners don't really have any open USB (so a hub would be needed on top of it... which is more money and probably more expensive in the long run.)

Answer:Ethernet to Wireless...

USB wi-fi would be the easiest and cheapest solution. Otherwise you would have to run an ethernet cable from your computer to the source router or a router picking up the signal - which doesn't sound like an option either.

Do you really not have ANY free USB ports?

Answer:ethernet and wireless together

You might get a better response by posting this thread in the Networking forum!If I understand you correctly your set up should allow you to Network in the way you want. You'll need to make sure the Desktop and Laptop are connected to the same Network - i.e they are on the same named network. Run the Network wizard on your desktop and note the exact names you enter, then select 'make disk' option at the end and place the disk (could be a USB Stick) in the Laptop and run the file created by the Desktop. You will have needed to select File/Printer Sharing when you first ran the Wizard.If you go 'Show all connections' and right click on the LAN card you can select 'Properties' - this tells you the protocols you have active (Client for MS Networking, File/Printer Sharing, TCP/IP).Finally check which files you have set for 'sharing'. Never share a whole drive on a WiFi network!Good luck!

Answer:One wireless, one Ethernet, can I use both?

Using Client OS (I.e. Not a real server like Windows 2008) you cannot use two Network Cards (does not matter wire or wireless) that are connected to the same Network (I.e. same Wireless Router/switch etc.).

You can use both only if they are configured to two subnets (Two independent Networks).

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007
Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

Your internet speed is determined by your provider and the package you have, it is irrelevant how fast your connection to router is as long as it is at least a little faster than speed to the provider. So you can not change the internet speed above what provider gives you.

That probably means that they want to restrict usage to one computer per connection and do not want wireless networks set up. So, please check with the IT department before doing anything, as it's not very hard for them to detect violations.

On the assumption that you will not attempt this unless it falls within the rules, you can use a Wireless Access Point (WAP). Use encryption, preferably WPA2-PSK, AES, but at least WPA-PSK, TKIP. Use a passphrase that cannot be guessed and does not include dictionary words.

I am currently baffled by the following issue;

OS - Win XP Pro 32bit SP3

Background;

When attempting to install certain packaged software it will fail or in some cases bring up the Windows Installer information window.

We have noticed that it appears to happen when an installer, EXE or MSI relies upon transforming a further extracted MSI with an MST file.

This only occurs if the files are attempted to be extracted to the root of the temp folder. The files are not created hence cannot be run. The Windows Installer information window will appear if you attempt to run msiexec pointing to a file that does not exist.

For example;

When it works, an example>
We run an EXE that is located on the desktop. This then extracts further EXE's (and subfolders) to a folder called, for example, "SFX18C.tmp". Another folder called, for example, "{8907BCE9-6673-4A9A-A24A-892C26294539}", is also created within the TEMP folder which contains various INI files, an MSI and MST file. The installer then runs/transforms this MSI which appears to be named via a selection of random numbers and letters such as "aaetc234.msi & aaetc234.mst" in the root of the TEMP folder. The file size of this msi is exactly the same as the msi located in the {8907BCE9-6673-4A9A-A24A-892C26294539} folder. The installation continues and these files are removed, along with the {8907BCE9-6673-4A9A-A24A-892C26294539} and "SFX18C.tmp" folder.

My Operating system crashed yesterday and I had to reinstall it, thus deleting everything off of my computer, including my configuration for wireless internet.

I installed the wireless adapter (Netgear WG111v2) like I was supposed to, I put the most up-to-date drivers for my computer to use the adapter as well as for the adapter to operate. It detects signals just fine, but when I put in my network's WPA passcode, my adapter gets stuck in this loop of "acquiring network address" and then dropping it and "acquiring network address" again. This baffles me because the code has worked on other machines.

Then, when I tried to connect my computer via ethernet cable, not only would my computer not connect to the internet, it's not even showing ethernet connection as an option in my Network Connections.

I have just upgraded my Internet Connection to a 20Mb/s one. BT told me that my line should support between 7Mb/s and 11Mb/s but I am only managing 3.45Mb/s.
Currently, my PC has no Wireless Card, so it is connected to the "Home Hub" by a CAT5 Cable. The Home Hub is connected to an Extension Telephone Socket, about 20' from the Main Socket.
My Question: Would I be better off to stick a Wireless Card, or Dongle, into the PC and connect the Home Hub to the main Telephone Socket?
My Lappy has a neat little Wireless Dongle which works well through two walls. If I were to add a Powered USB Hub, to the PC, and plug the Dongle into that. Would it be OK.

Answer:Wireless or Ethernet Connection

The first thing I would suggest is that you connect the Home Hub directly to your main telephone socket with a filter. Extension Telephone Sockets are notorious for slowing down the connection.
You could get a wireless card or dongle for your desktop PC but it would perform better via an ethernet connection directly to your router. If you want to position your desktop quite a way away from the router you can buy a longer ethernet cable.

a) The wireless router shows up fine on my list of available connections.
b) When I click to connect to the network, my computer just endlessly tries to connect..."waiting for network" even though the router is in the same room with me and showing full strength on my list of available networks.
c) I am able to connect to other wireless connections fine (though they happen to be my neighbors' unsecured networks)
d) I have updated my driver (as well as rolled it back). I have checked security settings multiple times (the router company suggested this). I have even fiddled with settings I probably shouldn't have (with the configuration of my driver or TCP/IP settings)
e) I have tried repairing my wireless connection at which point it says "Windows cannot finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Connecting to the wireless network". How helpful is that...

Try removing all the stored wireless profiles and searching for and connecting. The fact that it's not asking for a key indicates you may have an incorrect key stored.

So I've been googling this problem for hours now and I've finally given up and decided to ask for some help. My computer knowledge is pretty good but I'm not so great with all this internet stuff! I can connect to the internet through the cable but not wirelessly, despite it showing up as being available when I connect it tells me I have limited connectivity. Any help would be very appreciated, i ran a ipconfig and here are the results:

My wireless was working fine... didn't touch anything and then it stopped.

My roommate can connect fine and I can connect with the ethernet cable.

I ran the Xirrus and it's not detecting any networks and i'm right next to the modem.

I did a system restore, ran a virus scan and no dice.

Any suggestions?

A friend brought over a computer for me to remove a virus, after checking out the computer found that the OS was hosed. So backed up data, and put a fresh istall of XP pro on the PC, legal copy not bootlegged. Couldn't get ethernet working, figured since he did have a several nasty viruses, I'd flash the BIOS, and right 0's to the drive just to make sure no nasties were still on the machine. All said and done, reinstalled XP Pro, on an Emachine T2862. Installed drivers. Installed a pci 3Com ethernet card, with the right drivers. No ethernet, cant get an IP, tried using a good static IP didn't conect to the internet, couldn't ping the router. Plugged in a Linksys wireless usb adapter, grabbed an IP right away. Tryied plugging the ethernet in, ethernets get IP's now, unplug usb and ethernet stops working. Plugged usb back in did all of the windows updates, including hardware. Tried Ethernet with the new drivers, still doesn't work. Tried Winsock fix, tried XP bat fix. Any other suggestions, I'm stuck.
 

Answer:New install no ethernet, but can get wireless

What patch level of XP are you using? If this is SP2, the classic WINSOCK patch is not correct.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.

Let's also see this:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

I am currently getting my broadband using eclipse whom I am very happy with.I use a gateway (ZyXEL P-600 series Model p-660R-D1, I assume it is a gateway as eclipse sell something similair and call it a gateway). I have tried to split this before by plugging the ethernet into an old hub (netgear dual speed hub DS104). Unfortunately when I tried to run two PCs from the Hub when the 2nd Connection was made the 1st connection was dropped.Now I am trying to get a wireless router which also has ethernet connections. Do I need to get one that includes a Gateway or was the problem down to an old hub? I have quite a medium sized house so would need two antennaes I have been told. Would anyone be able to recommend any joint wireless /ethernet routers and do I need to get it to include a Gateway as well? Or might it be a problem with the internet provider.

Answer:Wireless and ethernet Hub/Router

When you connect to the internet with a Router, the Router *IS* the Default Gateway for any computers connecting to the internet through it. >>> I have tried to split this before by plugging >>> the ethernet into an old hub (netgear dual >>> speed hub DS104). Unfortunately when I tried >>> to run two PCs from the Hub when the 2nd >>> Connection was made the 1st connection was dropped.I would have thought that should work, although it might be necessary to use a Network Switch rather than a basic Network Hub. The way to check would be to see what IP address each computer connected to it gets by DHCP. If the first computer to connect gets your public IP address (as allocated by the ISP) then you are connected to a Modem and not to a Router. A Router will get your public IP address and allocate IP addresses to connected computers using one of the address ranges reserved for Local Area Networks, most commonly 192.168.x.x addresses.

Ok, here's the deal. I have my laptop getting wireless from a long distance (well, I will when I get my cantenna). My 360 is at my laptop and its too far for the 360 wireless adapter to reach. I want to have my laptop receive internet over wireless, and share it via switch or crossover cable with my 360. What do I need to set to make this work? Ive tried similar before and never got it to work.

Have wifi inet on laptop and want to share over ethernet to other device
 

Answer:Sharing wireless over ethernet

Do a bridge connection on your laptop -- You're going to bridge your wireless adapter and your ethernet adapter.

However -- Your ISP (in this case, Wireless providor) may not let you have more than one device on at the same time. Therefore in this case, I'd share the Wireless adapter using Windows ICS (Windows Internet Connection Sharing). Basically it will turn your laptop into a simple NAT enabled router.

Hi simple question.I have a Belkin 54 wireless/router and would like to know how I use the ethernet connection instead of going wireless, as I see that the latter is slower.I can see both icons wireless and ethernet and yet if I switch off the wireless how do I connect to the web using the direct cable connection?If I disconnect the elethnet cable I can't see the cable icon..

Answer:wireless or ethernet connection

>>> like to know how I use the ethernet connection >>> instead of going wirelessYou just plug an ethernet cable between the PC's RJ45 network port and one of the router's LAN ports. Unlike a "wireless" connection, you don't have to go through any procedure to "Connect" to the network.>>> I see that the latter is slower.Standard 802.11g networking has a nominal data transfer speed of 54Mbps, although in practice this is likely to be closer to 30Mbps. A wired ethernet connection to your router will run at 100Mbps. This higher speed is only significant for transferring files between computers in your local network, because even 30Mbps will be well above the speed of your broadband connection, unless you are on something like Virgin Media's 50Mbps Cable service.

I have an Acer Aspire 7552G laptop running Windows 7 x64 that is having problems with connecting to the internet.

I started to notice the wireless and LAN connections becoming very weak, web pages would load slower, data would take longer to download, etc. This lasted for a couple weeks. As of now, I cannot get any signal, neither wireless nor LAN.

I normally use Google Chrome but have tried to connect through multiple browsers.

I have tried updating the wireless/ethernet drivers, and I have also tried uninstalling them all together and reinstalling them. Both to no avail. I have no idea how to resolve this issue and am hoping the tech pros here can help me out!

Wireless LAN and LAN vendors are both Broadcom and the drivers can be found here: Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / Aspire / Aspire 7552G

How are you measureing the stregth of the ethernet connection?

Who is your ISP ?. . What Brand and Model is the Modem and Router?


Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

I recently purchased an HP Pavillion Elite 441F computer. Upon starting it up, I discovered that although my wireless connection works perfectly, I cannot connect via an ethernet cable. I have tried multiple ethernet cables that I verified the connectivity of using my laptop. When I plug in an ethernet cable, the port shows a green light and an orange light below it. My computer recognizes that an ethernet cord has been plugged in, but shows the over the eternet box on the taskbar. All drivers are up-to-date.

Thoughts? I appreciate any help offered.

Got my Voyager 2091 wireless modem/router this AM. Should the main house PC (in the room where the phone line/modem will be) be connected by USB or the yellow (Ethernet??) cable. Which would be best. PC has spare USB ports and Network port on mobo. Other house PC will be wireless on Linksys WUSB54G USB wireless-G adapter. Should this config be easy to get working ? ie. Is it plug and play ? Or could someone point me in direction of a tutorial, if I might encounter problems. Thanks.

Answer:BT wireless BB. Use USB or Ethernet cable ?

Ethernet (Yeloow) is always best. Disable all software firewalls during setup.I'd suggest reading the manual or disc that come with the gear. Basically it's install the card software and scan for available networks and connect to yours.Enable wireless security (WEP/WPA) once it's all working.

I am unhappy with my current wireless network. i am useing a Belkin 54g Wireless Router, with a MSI USB Network adapter. I only have one computer at this time that is wireless, but I plan on adding a Xbox360 soon that will need to be run Wireless. My signal really fluctuates and I get random drops. I was thinking that if I get a Wireless Ethernet Bridge I could move It alot closer to the wireless router giving me better signal and less signal droppage. I was thinking of getting the Linksys WET54G but I am not 100% sure if this will help or do what I want it to, if i understand correctly I can hook it up to a network switch and all the computers/Xbox360 hooked up to the switch can use the Bridge, is this correct?
 

Answer:Should I get a Wireless Ethernet Bridge?

Provided you have a means of assigning IP to the devices, yes it should work.

A more cost effective and flexible method would be a wireless router (one that could be modded a-la WRT54G series et al) and mod it with a 3rd party firmware would give better results. This is what I did. I have 1 wireless AP connected to my LAN and for extra devices where I didnt want, or could not run cable, I use a WRT54GS modded with DD-WRT firmware and use the WRT to act as either a wireless client on my existing 802.11x network or use it as a WDS node if I want extended wireless coverage in a certain part of my home. The 802.11x network is acting as an AP where my IP assignments are handled via my linux box router.


The only reason I suggest a router instead of that bridge is the cost. Even out of the box, I believe you can make the latest version of the WRT54G's act as a wireless client and they are under $50 new versus this $90 piece of hardware which I think is a bit more limited functionally.

BOTH will accomplish what you want to do. The router method takes more work, but you will get more functionality (built-in switch, better radio) but the bridge is simpler.

My ISP has supplied a Thompson Gateway router with wireless and 4 Ethernet ports. I connect to the internet from my desktop machine (Windows XP) via Ethernet.

My new Fujitsu Esprimo Mobile V6555 (Windows XP Professional) connects to the internet via wireless. I swapped to using Ethernet for a couple of days but when I wanted to use wireless again I failed. I tried lots of things but eventually did a “restore” to a date prior to the use of Ethernet and all was well again. I experimented and can now swap between the two PROVIDED I disable the wireless connection before plugging in the Ethernet cable.

I can understand the Fujitsu not being able to use both systems at the same time but was surprised that having them both connected should then disable the wireless connection requiring a “restore” to get it back. I contacted Fujitsu and got the following response:-

“You should always be aware of whether you are connected to the wired or wireless network, and use only one network connection at a time. Your laptop can also be connected to both networks simultaneously, which can cause network instability, slow connectivity or confusing the OS!”

I would like to occasionally “network” the Fujitsu to the desktop machine using a spare Ethernet port on the router. This would only be used for basic exchange of files, no sharing of printers or scanners, or opening a file from one machine in an application running on the other, just very basic file exchange.

Answer:Ethernet works but wireless does not

Check.
You have no conflicting wireless managers installed try using only the Windows built in tool
Remove any unneeded wireless networks from your system.
Remove and re add your network back in, ensure all settings are configured correctly. Connect firstly with the cable and note down everything exactly. i.e. SSID, Security type, encryption type, security key.
If it still dosent work look into updating or rolling back the drivers for your wireless card.
