Wireless connected but not working

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?VG9ueVQ=?=, Aug 27, 2006.

  1. I currently have a speedstream DSL modem, a linksys (vonage phone service
    adapter), and a Dell truemobile wireless router. I have them connected as
    follows:

    Modem cable to linksys adapter.
    Wireless router cable to laptop
    Linksys adapter to wireless router

    My wireless connection is available and the signal is strong. However, when
    I disconnect from my lan cable and move my laptop to use it wirelessly, it
    doesn't work. I think that I may have the physical connection set up
    improperly. Should I be going from my modem to my wireless router directly
    first, and then from the linksys to the laptop? Something is not right here.

    Thanks for any help. Regards, Tony

  2. Hi
    For exponential purposes I would take out the Vonage from the system and try
    first a regular Network.
    Should look like this, http://www.ezlan.net/network/router.jpg
    Configuring Wireless here,
    My New Wireless does not work - http://www.ezlan.net/wireless.html
    Wireless - Basic Configuration: http://www.ezlan.net/Wireless_Config.html
    Wireless Security - http://www.ezlan.net/Wireless_Security.html
    Once you make the Wireless working add the Vonage to the mix.
