I am trying to set up a wireless network. The operating system is Windows XP the modem is Belkin ADSL Router. When all the cables are plugged into the computer, telephone socket, and power socket all the lights tell me it is working properly. In Control Panel I click on the Network Icon it opens up with two connection options. I right click on Local Area Connection select properties, I bring up (tcp/ip) the boxes in there are all empty, I have selected "obtain DNS server address automatically" I still get nothing. In the instruction book it says go on line and into my IPS address bar 192.168.2.1 as I cannot get on the net this obviously doesn't work. Can anyone help please with this amount of info?
Thank you PaulB2005 and conrail I have tried your suggestion and typed 192.168.2.1 into my browser and all that comes up is live search and connects me to the Internet. I have typed this into my address bar and that is what happens.
sometimes windoes is a little awkward on setup it doesnt complete the save router info leaving the connetion useless when trying to input the user/password data. however be patient & it may only need rebooting afresh to innitalise the router sequence.they can take a couple of minutes to establish so wait untill you see all lights at ready state then call 192.168.2.1 page from router dont forget to scroll down each page as one requires you to SAVe info then reboot.
Thank you all for the replies to my thread. With a combination of all the suggestions we are now up and running. Talk about blood toil sweat and tears we've had it all! I may come back if I cannot make my printer talk to the two computers. Many, many thanks once again to all of you.
