I have a Netgear modem router DG834G. I installed it on my Dell Desk top and my sons Toshiba Laptop found it straight away. However my daughters Dell Laptop shows the signal strength received as excellent but it will not connect to the Internet. Can anyone help?
With your daughter's laptop, have you actually "Connected" to the wireless network? In other words, have you run the wireless adapter's software, scanned for "Available Wireless Networks", found and highlighted the one that matches your router's SSID (network name) and selected the option to "Connect" to it? You should be prompted to enter any WEP or WPA encryption key and, once "Connected", the wireless adapter should get its IP address by DHCP from the router and you should have network and internet access.
There is a difference between the Wireless Network Adapter and Router communicating with a good signal and "Connecting" (as in "logging in") to your Wireless network.
What IP address does your daughter's laptop have for its Wireless Adapter?
I have recently bought an HP PHotosmart 8250 printer. The annoying thing with this printer is that everytime I turn on or restart my PC the printer prints out 3 pages of a sort of Test type (USBC etc) on each page. Does anyone know how to stop this as it carries out this procedure even when I switch the printer off!
