Hi, im new to the forum and also new to wireless networking, i have installed my belkin wireless G router and dongle to my laptop. My desktop has the router information when connecting through the ip but when i check my security log i see other ip address's not mine a lot of lease time which i have no idea what it is and why there is so much of it for these ips, my network is security enabled but not sure if its doing a good job or not i thought i have followed all the basics in installation so now it fully secure but to be honest i dont trust wireless to much and want it as safe as humanly possible. Some advice on making my connection safe as poss and also if this security log looks ok or not. One thing on the log the year appears to be 2003 on some of the log? that cant be right. Anyone to help a fellor out, i would be very greatful.

Let me brief you on my connection, i have a belking 54g wireless router and dongle set that runs through a virgin media modem.

I noticed in another post WEP is not very good but its the only way i can get internet to my laptop. For the time being i have changed it for security to WPA hopeing for some advice to get net to my laptop using this method.

This is another security log if this tells anyone anything, please inform me of whats going on within it.

Hi every body

how to connect a wirless router in room with switch in another room by wireless?

  ambra4 15:46 22 Dec 2007

Not to sure what you have set up or trying to do

1 - You have a modem connected to a wireless router in one room

2 – A laptop with a wireless adapter in other room (Don’t the laptop have a build in wireless card) and you want to connect to the Internet

3 – Have you set the date and time on the router as the log will show the date set on the router

4 – In the wireless section on router did you change the SSID default name?

Access the router and click the Wireless section in the router setting

You have to set-up the Wireless Network Name the SSID address on the router first

By default some wireless router come set-up with the manufacture name as the SSID address 3Com, Linksys, Belkin etc,

You should change the SSID address to a name you want to give your Wireless Network, 452john06 / ezyclip01 etc which would allow you to easily identify your network

You should also change the Wireless Channel # the default is normally Channel 11 which most persons uses so change it to 6 / 8 this will save you having interferences and low signal quality from other network close by using channel 11

Write it down; or save on a flash drive as the same SSID name and Channel # and Security Code must be used on All wireless device when setting then up to access your wireless system

Do not set-up the security system as yet

Save the setting and log out of router, make sure that you can access the router vie the wireless device and browse the Internet first, if you get it wrong the router will not allow the wireless device to connect to the wireless system or allow access to the Internet

Setting Up The Wireless Security System

Check out these sites before you set-up the Wireless Security System

I think you are confusing yourself a wireless adapter and a switch is two-difference type of equipment

Most laptop computer these days comes with a building wireless card; some required you to switch on the Wireless Radio Antenna via a small slide switch on the laptop

Or using the FN (Function) key you have to hold down the FN key and press the key with a small antenna icon to turn on the wireless card

You can also check that the wireless card is Enable from inside the Network Connection Area

Start-Setting-Network Connection-Right click-Wireless Area Connection-Enable or Disable as required

Some times you have to Disable and Enable before the card will connect to the wireless system

If not sure if laptop have a antenna switch check the manual PC layout quick guide

Check out these site before you set-up the wireless system could save you a lot of time and headache.

Hey ambra many thanks for your reply i really do appreciate it. My laptop (acer aspire 3610) has wireless on it but i spent about 3 days trying all different kinds of drivers as the ones from acer web site did not work, without luck it drove me mad.

So i decided to get this belkin wireless g set with dongle, problem is i can't connect using WPA WEP is fine no problems getting online on the laptop with it but i have read a few posts and people say WEP is not very safe.

Could it be that my dongle does not support WPA? or am i doing something wrong, because everything seems to be in order yet on connect it was saying automatic yet not connected.

I no my laptop wireless works because when i bought it not long ago it was already working, but after i formated i could never get it to work again any suggestions?

  livewired 18:28 22 Dec 2007

ive just tried the drivers again just on the off chance it might work and it didnt lol.

It seems in device manager that it still has a question mark on it with an exclamation mark over that.

I no there the correct drivers becaue ieven got the model of the wireless chip fromt he laptop it self. I feel im going round in circles with this wireless malarky.

  ambra4 18:43 22 Dec 2007

Not sure how you trying to install drivers as information you posted is just general information on the device

This would be the best way to update the drivers on the laptop

Download the drivers to a folder on the desktop with the correct name of the driver as the folder name Acer Aspire 3610 Wifi driver etc

Unzip the file to the same folder

Right click “My Computer” on desktop- “Properties-“Hardware”- “Device Manger”-

Open “Network Adapters” find wireless card-right click on card and click Update Driver

Browse to the folder on the desktop and load driver
