Answer: Unable to share the Internet from a laptop through a router

Hello! Sadly, for all intents and purposes, it just doesn't work like that. I'm not saying it's impossible, because I have read how techies have made this happen - but it requires an insane amount of configuration, 3rd party software, a little programming, and a good grasp of linux. The router has to have the internet connection to share out to other computers. Go and get a wifi hotspot instead of a 3G USB device. The wifi hotspot, depending on the provider, should support up to 5+ connections. Another option is the see what ISPs are in your area, get service at your residence, then you could use the router. Hope this helps!

Answer:Unable to share the internet from a laptop through a router

I would buy a cheap 3G router from ebay and configure that.

eBay: 3G router

I have configured one before and it works fine providing you have a good signal.

Hi guys i need some help.

I have a laptop with windows7 installed and PC with windows xp installed.

I am using tp-link with a capability of wired&wireless modem router.

I connected my laptop via wireless and connected the internet, it is working properly.

When i connected to the xp PC via Lan connection. I can able to share the files.
But i am unable to share the internet connection.

What i have done so far
1. Checked the sharing option in wireless lan.
2.Checked the option sharing in broadband connection in laptop windows7.
3.Changed the properties of the local area connection in PC to ip address as 192.168.2.2 (where windows7 laptop ip address is 192.168.2.1) and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0
And leave other as blank

still it is not connecting to internet.

Answer:unable to share internet connection between laptop and PC

Sharing, as in networking, relies on the XP and 7 machines being assigned to the same 'workgroup' within each machines settings. Sharing in this sense is LAN side.

You do not need to bridge/share at adapter level at all. Let the TP Link device use it's DHCP server to enable connection sharing. Sharing in this sense refers to the WAN side internet connection being made available to both machines on the routers LAN side.

Up until recently everything was fine with just the one router (A). Everyone was able to see the shared files and use the printer. But due to poor range I had to get a 2nd router (B).

Problem: Folks using router "B" can't see shared files or print.

They get all pissy when they have to connect to router "A" just to print.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I think i have to set up router B..not sure
 

Answer:Unable to share w/2nd router...HELP?

what is your current configuration? have you tried having the di524 use the airlink's DHCP server (rather than assigning it's own IP addresses)?

try disabling the d links DHCP server and using the airlinks might fix the problems

also do ensure that the subnets match

I just moved to Florida and I just hooked up DSL internet through Bellsouth and I have a router that I used where I used to live that was hooked up through cable internet. I am having trouble getting my laptop to hook up to the internet even though the DSL is working just fine on my desktop. My laptop is an HP, I'm not actually sure about any of the specs, but I'm sure that I could find them. I'm not computer savvy at all, so I would definitely need everything put in layman's terms, please. If there's anyone that can help, it would be greatly appreciated. If more information is needed, please, ask. Thank you.
 

Answer:Unable to connect to internet on laptop with wireless router with DSL

Is the current configuration (router/laptop) unchanged from your working one in the previous location? If so, it should continue to work in your new location because the wireless network configuration should not have had to be altered.

Can you confirm that your wireless radio is on? Most laptops have a button, switch or key sequence that can turn on/off the wireless radio. Do you "see" your wireless network when you scan for available networks?

I have two computers connected to a cable modem through a Linksys Cable/DSL Router with 4-Port Switch. I can surf the internet just fine from both computers, but I can't do any file sharing between them. They are both Windows XP Professional SP2 with different computer names and the same workgroup name. When I go under My Nework Places and click on View Workgroup Computers, a dialog box pops up saying, "<Workgroup Name> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available." It's just a simple home network that I'm trying to build and I have my user accounts on both computers are administrators. How can I be able to share files?
 

Answer:Unable to share files through Linksys Router

You can try going into the computer by using teh ip address. Whatever you setup your individual computers IP addresses through your router. Instead of using \\compname use //local IP

If this doesn't work post back.

Here is the thing:

I have internet cable connected from my cable modem to a pc (winxp pro) with a usb cable. I want to connect a laptop to it using the ethernet card on the laptop (winxp home) and the ethrnet card on the pc. I do the set local area network on the pc with internet stating its the one directly connected and I do the same thing with the laptop but I state its connected to internet under another pc. I reboot both and nothing happens. The laptop has wireless lan and the normal ethernet and I have several unplugged devices in the taskbar same with the pc, I tried each ethernet card separately and they work fine, but I cant get to share the internet on the big pc on to the laptop. I have a router and when I connect the laptop my isp pops up and states I have to call them and have them charge me for the extra connection. Any ideas or things I can do this is really important :/ .
 

Answer:I want to share my internet with another pc w/o a router or hub etc.

1. Plug your laptop into the PC using a crossover ethernet cable.

2. Get into Network Connections on your desktop.

3. Select your USB -> Modem connection and your Desktop -> Laptop connection at the same time by holding down Control.

4. Right-click on one of them and click Bridge Connections.

I have a windows 2003 server (DNS, DHCP, Active Dir, Print Server, File Server) and was using ICS until today, yeah big mistake i know, but i learnt the hard way!

All computers on the network are connected via 2 8 port switches.

I have a spare router D-link DSL 500 which has a built in modem.

My question is, how would I configure the router to simply share the internet connection across the whole network? I have a spare network card in the server not being used, would it be as simple as plugging one of the 4 ethernet ports on the router into the servers network card?

Thanks in advance.

An identical thread was closed because "We don't assist in the use of P2P applications" I am not asking assistance in the use of p2p. I mentioned that I use it for p2p because the truth is that my whole family uses that notebook including my little brothers. They surf any websites and download many things (including p2p, but I am not asking assistance for that) and it gets virus from time to time. My idea was to share the internet connection but still have two different networks. Or something that will give me peace of mind knowing that no matters how many hackers (Yeah, I know they don't care about my pc but anyway...) are controlling my notebook they will not be able to go from there to the desktop. But just saying that I use it for p2p and It might get a virus was simpler.

I think this thead is not against the rules so I paste the other one again. If it is against the rules, well, close it (What can I say )

Answer:Router to share internet only

OK, we'll give you the benefit of the doubt. If you want real protection, buy a second router. Install the first one as you normally would, and then plug the WAN/Internet port of the second router into one of the LAN ports of the router connected to the broadband modem. Put the "secured" machine(s) on the second router. They'll be protected by the NAT layer of the router from anything happening on the first router or the Internet. What I normally do is put the secondary router in the DMZ of the primary router so I can run with no restrictions if I want to forward any ports.

Ok for some reason this is driving me up the wall. I guess I have only done this a few times and that was a long time ago. I am trying to connected a laptop and a desktop together (ad hoc connnection; wireless cards in both computers) and trying to share internet with my DSL connection. I have all firewalls turned off and ICS turned on. I can share files but internet does not work on my laptop. Trying to bridge connections sends my DSL connection up the wall.

Then I got an idea to try to use my linksys ethernet bridge hooked up to my DSL modem and then trying to share internet between the 2 wireless cards: ie one in the laptop and one in the pc. However I could not ping the bridge or at least it did not work. So I am confused now. Anyone who gives me a step by step instruction on this easy task gets a cookie
 

Answer:Trying to share internet without a router

Bridges don't talk to client cards. An AP would do that. Well, you might could actually get it to work if you made the bridge an Ad Hoc device. Anyway, you get one IP from yor provider unless your paying for more so it's unlikely that setup would work anyway. Nont to mention, the bridge is probably getting the public IP so it stops there.

Same thing for trying to bridge your two network connections on a PC. not the scenario you'd do that here. Routers are so cheap I can't see a valid reason not to buy one but if you don't want to then your stuck with ICS or other NAT/Proxy software. If you are getting an IP on the ICS client from the ICS host and can move data back and forth but not get to internet sites by name, it's probably a DNS issue.

unless your router can support sub networks, you won't be able to do that. Besides the router blocks most of the attacks. Plus hackers tend to go for businesses not end users.

The only thing you will need is a software firewall like ZoneAlarm. As for viruses, get AVG Antivirus.

----------
Right now my network is setup as follows:

Laptop connected to Earthlink's cable modem via ethernet.

What I want:

Have the internet on both computers, without needing the other computer to be on.
----------
What I think i need:

a router (so that internal ip addressing will let me share my internet independent of the other computer)
----------
What i dont know how to do:

where to get a router
what type of router to get
how to operate a router
what kind of settings need to be tweaked
how to wire the network

What would be nice:

later on if i want to hookup another computer, i wouldnt have to do any tweaking.
later on if i want to hookup an Xbox or a PS2 for online gaming, i wouldnt have to mess with the insides of something sacred as an Xbox/PS2
---------
Hows that? how much would i have to spend on a router, if thats what i actually need. What if i get a wireless router? what do i need to put in the laptop and desktop so that they can communicate with the wireless router (i believe its something called an access point thing? not sure...) and how would that work with something like an Xbox or PS2

Answer:Trying to share internet using a router

Buy a Linksys BEFSR41 router at Best Buy. It's about $50 at most. It supports 4 computers. setup is simple, the 'manual' is a big foldout sheat with pictures. You access it's settings through your browser. I don't like wireless routers, they are always having connection problems. Wired connections are never a problem. But if you want wireless then get the Linksys WRT54G 4 port router with wireless. It's about $70.

Hello all,

Long story short, I moved to a new apartment and have to wait a month or even more to get my DSL internet, so I temporarily got myself a USB 3G device to have some access to the internet till I get my DSL line.

I live in Bahrain so I don't think you guys will know much about the ISPs over here. The USB acts as 3G modem for a single PC that's connected to it, what I want is to share that internet using my D-Link DIR-655 router so I'd be able to connect my iPhone and PS3 as well.

Any ideas to get that setup working as smoothly as possible would be great. DIR-655's default gateway is 192.168.0.1, and the auto DHCP range IIRC is 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199

I have two PC one XP and one 7. At first they were working. but after reinstalling windows 7. It suddenly won't work.

The strange thing is that I didn't change the router settings and that my drivers are working fine.

Is it possible that the ISP change their setting and decided not to allow internet sharing anymore?

When I tried ping or tracert, it says request unreachable. But when I directly connect the modem to the LAN card, internet works fine.

Answer:How can I share an Internet Via Sat (1-way) connection on several pcs? (router)

I don't know how you'd use a standard broadband router for this task. My guess is that you'll need to consider either ICS and a host Windows system, or perhaps a Linux rig of some sort. Since you have some sort of broadband, why not just increase the speed of that service and forget about the satellite connection?

sorry if this has been covered - I did not find a similar situation to mine, although there were some that gave me hoipe around page 5-6. Here goes...

We have had three PCs sharing cable modem Internet access thru a Linksys router. We dont network the PCs together for file sharing, though. This has been working trouble free for over a year now. I recently assembled a new PC for my wife, and before I turned it over to her, I just wanted to quickly download + install a few programs that she uses on her current PC. Here is where I ran into problems. For some reason, I cannot get this PC to release the IP of the NIC and pick up a new one. Although I specify in set-up to use dynamic IP adresses (none of the other PCs are assigned an IP), this new PC just doesn't seem to auto update the IP.

I have WIN 2000 on this PC (I use this OS on my own PC and have had no problems with it), and when I execute 'start > run >cmd > ipconfig /release' I get this message:

All adapters bound to DHCP do not have DHCP addresses. The addresses were automatically configured and can not be released."

I want to share my internet connection to the wireless router just for the wireless feature, sure I could connect the ethernet cable to the router but the router is 10/100 and my internet connection is 1000 so I'd lose a lot of speed. I have 2 network cards in my PC and I've connected the ethernet cable to one of my network cards and another cable to my second network card and to the wireless's router internet socket.
I tried selecting the Local Area Connection that has the internet and tried the "allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection", but then I can't access the modem through 192.168.1.1

Answer:I want to share the internet connection from PC to a wireless router

Connect the 2nd router to one of the open ports of the first router, this makes it 192.168.1.2 then setup the wifi. That leaves three ports open on the first router that is 1000.

I am finding that my internet connection via Pdanet (tethering my Android phone) on my PC is faster than the satelllite connection via my wireless router. I am trying to find out if there is any way for me to share my Pdanet internet connection via the wireless router. I have tried ICS and have found it does not work and the Pdanet support FAQ confirmed my suspicion that ICS could not be used to share the Pdanet internet connection.

I have my Android phone tethered to a PC with Windows 7 64 bit OS via Pdanet. The phone is Android OS 2.1, so making it a wifi hot spot is not an option. I have also tried rooting the phone and using Wireless Tether but found that my phone lacks the necessary networking to make Wireless Tether work - so that's not an option either! Pdanet works fine and is actually quite fast.

What I am wanting to do is connect to my Linksys router and somehow allow my Pdanet internet connection to be shared with other PCs via the router. Thought about creating a network bridge between the Pdanet modem and Linksys, but when I click on the 2 connections the option for network bridge does not even appear. Perhaps Pdanet will not allow it? I don't know. So my next thought was to connect my PC to Linksys and somehow route my Pdanet connection back through the router. Is that possible?

I have searched through the forums, googled, and tried linksys and MS, still having trouble. So hopefully someone here can help.

I have a wireless Linksys router that has 4 connections for a wired setup. I had used the router for my Xbox that was upstairs but had my pc downstairs at the other end of the house. I switched over my Xbox from wireless to wired after running the house with CAT5 through the walls and in the attic down to my office.

My main PC (WinXP) is connected to the first wired port of the router and my Xbox to the second port. They both work fine. I recently acquired a laptop running Win2K and tried connecting to port 3 of the router to gain internet access in the bedroom upstairs. The router lights up showing that is recognizing a connection with the laptop, but the activity lights do not light up. When I disconnect the Cat5 from the laptop the laptop says the network has been disconnected.

I set the LAN connections to autodetect IP etc. etc. and as far as I can tell, all the settings on the Win2K laptop match my XPpro desktop. Is there something I am missing?

Thanks (Sorry for the long explanation)

Have you checked ipconfig (open the command window and run "ipconfig /all" to see if the autodetect is pulling in the information correctly?

There really shouldn't be anything beyond plugging in the cable as far as the router is concerned.

All I need is for her to access my external HDD which is connected to my main desktop PC. My desk is huge, ridiculously awkward and to get behind it to unplug the external would be a huge pain in the ***. Let alone putting it back would be even moreso troublesome.

My desktop PC is connected to our wifi gateway hardline. Her laptop is connected to our gateway via wifi.

Both of us are running Windows 7. I've had them sharing folders and locations before. I just have come to my limit when every tutorial I've read and video I've watched works out perfectly and I can't get them to see each other.

Any feedback, instructions, thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Answer:Unable To Network / Share Desktop PC to Laptop

Bit of clarification please. Is it that she can see your PC on Network but can't access any of the folders you have shared, or can't she even see your PC?

Dear friends

I need some help on adding an additional computer to a home network.

At present, I have a Netgear WGR614 Wireless Router. Two computers are connected to it. The main computer, a desktop is a Pentium IV 1.5 Ghz computer connected via an Dlink NIC card. The second computer, a Fujitsu laptop 2.4 Ghz 512 Mb computer is connected wirelessly to the router. Both computers can see each other fine and can connect to the internet with no problems.

The problem came up when I added another computer to the set up. It is a Celeron based computer with a Realtek NIC card. I coonected it via the NIC card to the same router. It is able to see the two other computers in the network. The main problem is the internet access. For some reason, when I connected the third computer, my internet access through the main computer is pretty much gone! I can't access the internet. The third computer can't seem to access the internet also. When I detach the lan cable from the third computer from the router, the main computer accesses the internet normally!

Question: What things should I be checking on the :

a. router settings
b. third computer settings
c. main computer settings
d. Possible conflicts

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hello,
I have been having issues with sharing my internet connection via an ethernet cable. I read online that there is the ability to 'share' your internet connection. I have learned how to do this, but it doesnt work for me. I tried connecting my laptop. I went through everything and I was able to get the connection (it showed the LAN connectivity icon) however, there was the little yellow triangle next to it. I waited but it won't connect. What I am trying to do with this is be able to play multiplayer on computer games with other computers on my LAN. I also tried to connect my XBox 360 with this, but it doesnt have an internet connection. Any help I would appreciate.

Things to keep in mind

The only way I could get a good internet service was through my cell phone service provider, so I get my internet connection through my phone via USB tethering

All of the computers I am trying this on have Windows 8 Pro, except for one

Answer:Unable to share internet connection via ethernet cable

You really haven't described how you have your multiple computers setup to to share a single internet service connection. For example, are you using a router that has 2 ethernet cables plugging into it and you are attempting to share the same internet service?

I was attempting to port foreward for my PS3, but was having no luck. Long story short, I tried changing the router's IP to see if it would work. Here's where the problem began. I changed it from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.1.1, which I believe may have made it conflict with my modem. Now I'm stuck not being able to access the internet through the router at all or access the router's configuration to change it back. When I try to access it, I just get a "Page not Found". The computer connected directly to the router is running Windows XP. The Router is a Linksys WRT54GS v. 4.

I've tried disconnecting the internet from the Router to see if it would stop the conflicting problem (if that is indeed the problem), but it didn't work. I've tried setting up many different static IP adresses for the computer connected to the router directly, but it didn't work. I've tried nearly everything, but I just can't get it working.

I'm posting this through a computer connected through a switch to my modem.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I have a Lumia 810 and a Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows 8.1 and I would like to be able to transfer music and photos between them wirelessly. When I pair my phone to my laptop using Bluetooth they connect for a few seconds and then disconnect. I have read several forum posts that say this is normal as the WP is not designed to "stay connected" to devices like a laptop or tablet. This blows my mind because I thought that was the whole point of Microsoft's "one OS across multiple devices" strategy, but I digress. So I try just sending individual files but even this does not work! Going from the phone to the laptop I get "The device you're trying to send to doesn't support sharing over Bluetooth." This is after I have gone into "Bluetooth Settings" on the laptop and enabled sharing:
Going from the laptop to the phone (right-click file, Send to -> Bluetooth, select Windows Phone -> Finish) I get:
What am I doing wrong? Why is this so difficult to do with devices that are supposedly made to be compatible? My enthusiasm for WP and and Windows in general is currently at an all time low so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Server
TCP/IP Netbios helper
Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.

Greetings,
I have an odd issue.. a user reports that they are unable to access a network shared folder from their PC. Here is what I have gathered so far:
-The network share is from their PC located at C:\SQL2014. The share name is SQL2014. Their hostname for this example is "ABC".
-If I attempt to connect to the share from the user's PC ABC to \\ABC\SQL2014 I get the generic error:
  "Windows cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014
   You do not have permission to access \\ABC\SQL2014. Contact your network administrator to request access."
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's IP \\192.168.1.140\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's FQDN at  \\ABC.domain.com\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I map ABC\SQL2014 as a drive letter, I can access it.
-Connecting to this share works fine from any other PC other than ABC.
-I've confirmed the error is affecting any profile old or new on ABC, which means it is a PC-wide issue on ABC.
-If I share C:\SQL2014 as ANY OTHER NAME OTHER THAN SQL2014, I can access it. As in if I share C:\SQL2014 with the share name SQL2014a, I can access \\ABC\SQL2014a.
-Deleted the share and recreated - same issue.
-Created C:\Test and shared it as SQL2014, cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014. It is NOT an issue with the actual SQL2014 folder.

Does the "Wireless Network Connection" in your Laptop have the IP address 192.168.0.1 and does your wife's Laptop get an address in the same 192.168.0.x range by DHCP from your Laptop? If you are running Zone Alarm in your Laptop, the "Internet Zone Security" level must be reduced from High to Medium or ICS traffic will be blocked.

The problem is that I get terrible speeds on my PS4's wireless.

I use a Windows 8.1 laptop in the same room, and would like to somehow share its internet connection with the PS4.

I tried to wire the console and the laptop via ethernet, and bridge the ethernet and wireless connections in the 'Network Connections' page of the Control Panel, but I get the message:

"An unexpected error occurred while configuring the network bridge"

Any idea why this is happening, or if there is a better way to go about this? I also have an external USB wireless adapter at hand, just in case I would need another different wireless connection.

Currently I have Broadband Cable Internet. I use a Cable Modem and a Router. The Cable Modem is in the basement. I have a Linksys Router down there. I ran an ethernet cable from the Modem to the WAN of the Linksys. I ran an ethernet cable to the Nic card of the Basment computer from port 1. I am gettomg the internet fine down there. I have run a long eithernet cable from the Linksys port two up to second floor. Here's my problem. I have two computers up there. I bought another router, a US Robotics. I thought I could run the ethernet cable into one of the ports and then hook up the other two computers using two of the open three ports. It is not working. I can only get one computer up on the internet, the second one won't connect. They will both work if I disconnect the basement computer but for some reason I can't seem to get all three up at the same time. It's the same deal with my laptop. I can use the D-LINK and it will find the US Robitics wireless router but only if two of the other computers are not connected to the router. Any Ideas on what I'm doing wrong or what I could do to make this work?
 

Answer:How can I share internet on three computers and wireless laptop?

See a previous post

You're not setting up the routers correctly. You may want to read through another post which dealt with a problem similar to yours ( http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?postid=117746#post117746 ).

Your two routers solution was probably overkill but should be workable. One wireless router plus one 5 or 8 port fast Ethernet switch would have been your best setup. These switches are very inexpensive. I would have put the wireless router in the basement and a network switch on the 2nd floor.

For your two router solution check out the previous post.

I just got my very first laptop and have been searching for simple instructions on connecting it to my current home Internet connection (Comcast cable). I already have a router, but it is not wireless as it came from Vonage (Linksys RT31P2). The laptop is Toshiba A105-S2071 with Wireless 802.11g/b.

Buying a long Ethernet cable seems cumbersome but simple. Would getting a wireless router automatically provide wireless access to the laptop without changing the PC connection (and with no fees from my ISP)?

Both computers have Windows XP. Once I get connected, what utility should I use to configure this little network and protect it? I'll need to transfer files from the laptop to the PC periodically.
Thanks.

Okay, so I have been using my laptop which is running Windows 10 to share internet to my desktop running Windows 7. Well Windows 10 updated and screwed something up so I rolled the update back and got it back up and running by resetting my desktop dns and ip back to default. It worked for about five hours or so and then stopped out of nowhere. I have tried all the ipconfig / things you can do and none of them have worked. I have tried to bridge them and that doesn't work. I will also sometimes get a ip conflict box on my laptop or on my desktop they go back and forth. I have been stuck on this for hours and networking is not my specialty. If someone could please help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Update: Okay, so I have the wireless internet bridged with the local connection and it created a Ethernet connection box and it's receiving data and sending data just not to the desktop. I have tried to use cmd with the command ipconfig /all and used the ipv4,subnet mask, default gateway, and dns from the Ethernet connection on the desktop with the local connection, properties, ipv4, properties and changing it to the local connection information I was getting a dns error.

Simple question and I should know the answer but I don't know where to go on my laptop can someone help me out please?

Answer:How can I share my phone's internet connection with my Windows 10 laptop?

First, you have to enable Mobile Sharing on your phone. If you're using a Windows Phone, swipe down from the top of the screen and enable Mobile Hotspot. If you've never used this feature before, take note of the network name and network password.
On your Windows 10 laptop, go into WiFi networks, this is down on the bottom right corner of your PC's screen, the system tray. Click on the WiFi network icon, and find the WiFi network with the network name of your phone. It will ask for a passphrase to log in, that will be the network password. Your laptop will bind to the phone's wifi network and you'll be tethered.
Please note that this may not work if your cellular provider does not permit it, or if they require you to upgrade to a different plan that includes tethering.

As far as I know there is not much support for the configuration you are trying to set up although I would think the best chance is using the Virtual Router software or the directions in the link> http://lifehacker.com/5369381/turn-y...reless-hotspot

It may require using static IP's on the IPv4 properties interface but some experimenting may be required.

Answer:Unable to connect to internet through router on second PC

I'm having a similar problem with an XP machine, but we are using a Sonicwall router. The computer has a wireless nic and an internal wired connection. Both receive their IP info via dhcp, but neither can see outside the local network except by IP only. When on the wired connection the computer receives dhcp from a server, but on wireless receives ip from the Sonicwall on a different network range. Other computers in the system work fine.

So inside the network I can ping by IP or hostname, but on the internet I can only ping by IP. Have tried manually configuring dns, blowing out tcp-ip, clearing arp cache, and removing nic drivers and reinstalling with updated drivers. No luck.

I don't know if any of those other options would clear up your issue, but might be worth trying.

I was beginning to wonder if malware was involved, but that doesn't seem to be shaping up either. Very frustrating.

Hi,

I have recently decided to dual boot between XP MCE and Server 2003 Enterprise Edition. The installation was a success, however, I am unable to connect to my router on Win 2k3 and the internet. XP works perfectly though. I did some searching, and I found out 5 things to resolve this problem:

1) Disable DHCP - Disabled already
2) Install the NIC drivers - Installed and updated
3) Disable "Network Load Balancing" - I have no clue how to disable this
4) Disable Internet Explorer's "Improved" security system
5) Call tech support

I am just asking for some way to disable Microsoft's Network Load Balancing (Because someone said that after disabling it, it worked perfectly) and/or help me figure out why it won't connect. I have manually edited the registry's DHCP and it STILL doesn't work.

Regards,
idontknow

Hi guys, asking for help another time.

Recently there was a thunderstorm around my area. I turned off all the computers in the LAN, thinking it was the right thing to do.

Afterwards, when the storm had passed, I found out the Internet wasn't working.

If I connect the modem directly to the computer, the connection works fine, but if I use the router, the internet does not work.

The router is: D-Link DL-514 and has given us no problems B4 this.

I have absolutely no idea why the internet is not working. When I connect thru the router, it shows me as connected to the internet, and I can still share files through the router, however, I can not connect to IE, Outlook or MSN Messenger etc.

Should I reset the router? I really don't know what to do! Help!

Hi,There are two computers in our house, connected to the same router, one a desktop that has a wired connection to the router, the other a laptop connected wirelessly via a dongle. The router is a NETGEAR DG834PN.For some reason, the Laptop is unable to open web pages (I've tried IE, Firefox and Safari). There seems to be no problem with the connection - according to all status indicators the laptop has a healthy connection and is connected to the router fine.When opening a web browser, I'm getting the following messages:In Firefox: "Proxy Server Refusing Connection"In Safari "There was a problem communication with the web proxy server (HTTP). CFURLErrorDomain:306"I was using the laptop a couple of days ago and it was fine then. The only time it's been used in the interim is to install new antiviurs software (Kaspersky). Manybe the antivirus is blocking it somehow?Any help would be much appreciated; if you need any more ino, please ask and I'll be happy to oblige.Thanks in advance,Ryan.

Answer:Unable to connect to Internet via router

Just to test your theory, try disabling your anti virus, then see if you can connect.Depending on results you can then progress from there.

I have been trying to connect my laptop to my home WIFI for a couple of days now. It has recognised the modem and recognises that it is working. It has also connected to the modem but claims that there is no internet available. I know there is because both my iPhone and iPad are connected to it and working very well (hence being able to post this).

I have been through many of these different forums and seen lots of different ideas as to what to do but non of it has worked for me.

The wording of the messages on screen, when I try and connect, is that I have limited connectivity to the modem and then when I try and trouble shoot it says that my "wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration".

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Toshiba laptop with Motorola Modem and Belkin wireless G Router. Everything was working fine until I attempted to set up security on the router according to the Belkin instructions. I misread them and connected the computer directly to the modem bypassing the router. I connected with the Belkin website http://192.168.2.1 and set the WPA/WPA2-Personal (PSK) password. Now I can access the Internet directly from the computer but not through the router. When I attempt to connect to a network Belkin 54g I get the message: The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network. I cannot make any changes to the router settings as it will not connect to the Internet. Please help.

Hello there,

Heres my problem:- I'm trying to get a computer working which is in my work place which has previously worked a few weeks ago. There are another 2 computers which are connected to the internet fine without problems.

Its running Windows XP, and in network connections it shows the local area network icon only and shows connected but it only seems to be receiving as the sent bytes are on zero.

Heres what Ive tried:- Ive tried typing in the routers IP address in internet explorer but it doesnt even get to the screen where you can type the username and password. None of the machines would work with obtaining an IP automatically (DHCP) so I manually put in IP addresses in these machines and these are working perfectly, Ive got for instance [IP address 192.168.0.10, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.0.1 and DNS the same as default gateway....the only thing different on the 2nd machine is the IP address obviously.

Ive done exactly the same settings on the third machine but it just does what ive explained above. I forgot to mention that this is a fully wired LAN.

Any help would be much appreciated and any information you need from me just let me know.

Thanks in advance

Hi, our apartment complex just got new internet. We now connect through an ethernet cord to an ethernet wall jack. However, when I plug my wireless router into the ethernet jack, I dont get any internet. When I plug in my laptop directly into the jack, I do get internet. What do I have to do to solve this issue?
Thanks
 

Answer:Unable to get internet through wireless router

when connected directly with a PC - post an ipconfig /all

I suspect its a router your connecting to - so in order to connect a 2nd router - you may need to do this
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NA... Read more

good day my modem seems to be bad (my thoughts) the twc says it is working perfectly however i do not think so. about 2 weeks ago it stopped working with our router. i have since tried 2 other different routers on it
linksys g (the original)
linksys b and
netgear g (brand new never been out of the box)
none of these routers would connect to the internet however if i hook directly to the modem internet works fine.
Is there a way to tell if this is a problem with the router or the modem
thanks in advance
i have included an ipconfig /all in this post, this was done with just the modem no router.

when modem connected to the router can we see a WAN Status page from the router configuration pages please

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

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes,
Plug the power cords back in, but don&#8217;t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. I know it works because I was just using a few days a go. I was attempting to reconfigure it so my neighbors would stop using my network. I tried to go through the installation cd and followed all the directions. I even called Linksys and spent an hour on the phone to no avail. I know it's not the modem because I'm using it right now. What can I do to fix this?
 

Answer:Linksys router unable to connect to internet

Need more info:
Cable or DSL ?

Is it only a wireless connection that is failing or does the hardwaired connection also fail?

My Netgear modem router recently 'froze' and the IT guy at work carried out a 'hard reset' (which he had done once before) to get it working again. However when I set it up again back at home, reapplying the settings (that I have done several times before without problem) I have found that although my desktop is showing it as successfully connected, I am unable to access any web pages, receive any emails through Outlook Express, or access the internet in any other way. However, my laptop is connected and accessing the internet via the same router in the same way with no problem.I have even tried using a new router (the same model), only to find exactly the same situation. I have tried disabling my firewall in case this is the issue. I have also tried connecting using the ethernet cable, but this changes nothing, so it is nothing to do with the wireless connection.Has anyone else had a similar problem, and if so please can you help, as I have no idea what to do next! Thanks in advance.

I wanted to put a password on my router.

When I tried to login, I tried various generic usernames and passwords, but it would not accept any of them. The label on my router (Netgear WPN824 v2) says the default username is "admin" and the default password is "password." I do not recall ever giving it a password. Anyway, they did not work.

I figured I had to start all over, so I reset the router with a paper clip and I went to 192.168.1.1 and it would not let me on without a password.

I put in the installation CD, but it will not run. I even tried to install it on a laptop I have, but it would not run on that either.

And now? My router won't access the internet at all.

Am I missing something really obvious here? Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I think I have a problem with my router. I used to have a Belkin N1 and that worked fine until it broke. So temporarily I'm having to use a Pluscom one I found lying around, but the problem is that I can connect my laptop to the router, but I cannot connect the router to the Internet. I'm using Windows Vista and I have WiFi built into my Sony laptop. The signal strength is consistently on Excellent. In the "Network and Sharing Centre", it clearly shows that my computer is connected to the router, but the connections between the router and the Internet is broken (shown with a red X between the two icons). If I try to connect to someone else's network, I can connect to their router and the Internet, so I'm assuming I'm going wrong with my router somewhere. Anyone have any ideas about what I could do to resolve this issue? Any help would be much appreciated.

I have had some issues with this for about 2 weeks. I had another router which was a dell 1184 Wireless broadband router that i was able to connect to the internet with for about 2 years up until a couple weeks ago. So today i bought a new wireless router because that Dell router fell on the floor and broke. The wireless router i have now is a Linksys WRT54G router and i am having issues with connecting it to the internet. I am able to connect to the router fine just no internet. And also i just reasontly reformatted my hard drive a couple weeks ago and noticed this problem of not being able to connect through the wireless before getting the linksys router.

Thanks in advance for any help,

and also, I'm not very computer literate so if possible can you explain stuff to me

thanks again

The router worked fine in the past until recently, my ISP had a break in the cable line and repaired it.
Now, I am unable to connect to the internet.
If I connect the ISP's LAN cable directly to PC (windows 7) and do the following steps:

Control panel > View network stats and tasks
Setup a new connection or network > Connect to the internet > Next
Broadband PPPOE > Next
Type in username, password > Connect

Internet works fine. This means there is no problem with the internet connection.
However, if I connect the ISP's LAN cable to the "blue" port of the router

and the short LAN cable to my PC then do the following steps:
Open http://tplinklogin.net/ (It shows me router config page)
Click Quick setup > Next
Select PPPoE > Next
Type in username, password > Next
Leave the Wireless Page untouched > Next
Click Reboot (Wait till router reboots)
It does not work, the router page shows "Connecting..." but does not connect at all.
Here's the router log:

Dual booting, using WinXP2 fully patched & clean.

I am unable to access internet with above router on either Vista or Windows using Ethernet connection to this PC. No box shows requesting ISP Username/password.

Have not attempted to connect secondary PC yet.
Have followed exact setup procedure for router.Wiring has been certified serviceable.

LAN TCP/IP properties set to:-Obtain IP address automatically
" " " " :- " DNS server address automatically .

Web browser Internet Options set to:- never dial a connection.
" " Connections tab with no selections ticked.

Device Manager showing "Unknown PCI, no drivers installed for this device(Code28)

Have researched for drivers but indications are that I need to D/load complete motherboard drivers but am wary of going that deep.

My network setup is as follows :-Router - BuffaloXP PC Desktop connected directly to wireless router.Vista installed on laptop wireless connection to router.Until this week I was able to use laptop to connect to the network using its wireless connection. Now i am unable to connect and the router is not being displayed in the list of available routers. The laptop can see other routers in the area, just not mine. I have reinstalling the connection using Vistas wireless wizard and manual method, both methods stating that connection was successful, but router is still not available.any ideas on what I can try next???

Answer:Vista laptop unable to connect to wireless router

Go into the router's wireless settings and ensure it is still broadcasting its SSID (Network Name). You can open the router's configuration pages by typing its IP address (192.168.11.1 for a Buffalo router) into the web browser of your XP PC which is connected to it by ethernet cable.

Starting this past Monday, my personal laptop can no longer connect to the wireless router. It can see my network in the list, but says it can't connect ("Windows cannot connect to Kim's Network") and gives me suggestions for how to deal with a weak signal. There are no problems with the signal, as my work laptop connects just fine and the fact that the personal laptop won't connect even sitting right next to the router. I've had intermittent issues with interference from my cordless phone in the past, but this doesn't seem to be the problem this time because it hasn't been able to connect in 5 days.

I've done all the regular things -- resetting router, updating software, checking for updated drivers, etc., and nothing so far has helped.

I'm on a Dell Inspiron 1720, running Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1, using an Airport Extreme router.

I have a VirginMedia 50Mps wireless router that runs 4 wired connections. These are all working fine and have Internet connection. When the router was installed I could also connect to the internet wirelessly on my Laptop which is running Windows Vista Home Premium. But of late I have been unable to connect to the Internet on the Laptop. When you place the mouse pointer over the Icon in the bottom right hand corner, the following message comes up : Currenlty connected to: Unidentified(virginmediaxxxxxxxx) (where xxxxxxxx is a numeric identifier for the modem). Access: Limited connectivity or sometimes it says Access : Local only.

Answer:Unable to connect to Internet through wireless Virgin Media Router

First you should check to see that your network adaptor driver is up to date in Device Manager.
Then it may be necessary to change TCP/IP settings - see this article on how to do this.

Desktop won't connect to internet. I have a Belkin router and my laptops connect to the internet. My Netflix Rokus connects to the internet. I have tried your suggestion with reset winsock and reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, etc.

Nothing.
