Solved: HP Laser Jet 4050 configuration with Dynex wireless G Router

Q: Solved: HP Laser Jet 4050 configuration with Dynex wireless G Router

Components involved in network
Dell Dimension 3000 Tower OS Win XP SP 2
Dynex Wireless G Router
HP Laserjet 4050 TN
What I'm trying to do.

Get the wireless router to recognize the Laserjet and assign it an IP address though DCHP.
The laser jet was originally configured on a physical Net Gear Route, thus it has RJ45 ehternet connection. When I connect the laser jet, Dell PC and the Dynex Wireless Router. The wireless network works fine as far as a laptop accessing the network, BUT the router does not recognize the laserjet and does not assign it an ip address. The laser jet had an static address with its old configuration. How do I get the router's DHCP to recognize the laserjet and assigne it an IP address? Any ideas or ways to configure the Laserjet to accept an IP assignment or lease?

I have a Dynex router and I go into the settings to create a security password. It lets me select the type and add the security key but when I hit apply changes, it doesn't add the key to the router and it says security is still disabled. I'm hoping someone here has some advice on how to get this working. I have tried multiple browsers and different computers but it still doesn't save the security. I thought maybe a power cycle would work after saving the settings but still nothing. Help please!

I have my main computer with the following setup

Windows Vista connected to the router then to the modem in Bridge Mode (so that I can use NAT1 with my PS3), thus internet works fine for both, my Main Comp (Desktop) using PPPoe and PS3 using a wireless connection between my router but also through PPPoe.

However, in terms of my secondary computer (Desktop), I have a USB Wireless Adapter, but I do not seem to be able to find the configuration for going on to the internet through the router but to use PPPoe.

The following are my products

Router - D-Link DIR-625
Adapter - D-Link USB Wireless Adapter DWL-G122
Modem - SpeedStream 5200

I'm a bit confused. If you're connecting PPPoE with two devices, that indicates you have two modems, which sure doesn't sound right. What are you really doing here?

Hello all,

I am having an issue here and I am not quite sure how to resolve it. I have a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 and I also have a wireless home network using a D-Link WBR-2310 wireless router. I am using Windows Vista, and when I am using the mouse with my computer and the wireless network enabled the mouse pointer moves very erratically and does not move smoothly at all. The computer is plugged in directly into the router with an ethernet cable, it is not using a wireless NIC card.

I am fairly certain this is from interference from the wireless router, i have tried different channels to see if I would get less interference but none of that seems to help any. There does not seem to be any settings for my mouse where i can choose what channel it is running on, it runs on Bluetooth. The wireless router is running 802.11g and as far as I know, this and Bluetooth both run at 2.4ghz.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Greetings all.

I purchased a network capable laser jet 4050N from a used computer store. I'd like to be able to print to it via my wireless router (a linksys G2.4). I have read several posts, and frankly they baffle me (so perhaps I'm not a beginner but illiterate?) Anyway, I've plugged it into the router, but I can't see it.

Anyway, I have a new toshiba with vista installed. For reasons not clear to me, I can't seem to add the printer from the area where all the other printer's reside (says I do not have sufficient rights, although I'm the only user?)

The N version of the 4050 is network capable per factory installation (from what I've read it other posts). The printer has a jet direct menu, so that's a good sign as that is mentioned in other posts.

Basically what I need help with is:

* do i need a driver installed on the toshiba, and if so where to i get it as the one on the website won't download (link seems broken) even tho its supposed to support vista.
* can't i just run an ethernet cable between the printer and the router be able to see it an configure it? If not, what do I need to do to make that happen?

I generally am the kind of user that can follow directions pretty well from a corporate help desk, but the terminology in the threads just left me baffled. Any help here would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance!

A:Need help (for a beginner) to set up a 4050 N printer via a router

Actually, I solved the problem. I finally (and I mean finally) found the command to print the JetDirect Config page. Found the IP addy (which means that all the other posts made sense)... found an HP 4050 driver on the internet (it thinks the printer is color but that is the least of my problems at the moment) and now with the two together, it prints like a charm via the router. Who knew... thanks to all the folks who answered the other posts, I managed to put it together afterall.

At work I am trying to figure out how to configure out wireless router. What I need to be able to do is to have people who use wifi to be able to also connect to our office file server (which will have shared printers so we can monitor usage amongst different departments). How can I do this? 90% of the office connects through wires using a static ip. Would I need to configure the router with a static ip as well? If so, would the wifi laptops need to have a static ip as well?

A:Wireless router configuration for use with file server

If there is a DHCP server on your office network, the following configuration for the router and allow the connections you seek. You could also use a wireless bridge if you haven't purchased yet.
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

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 through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, 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 (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

I have 3 computers (XP, Vista 32 bit, and a W7 64 bit). All have a Microsoft Wireless Laser 5000 Mouse and all work great.

Recently I purchased 2 new Laser 5000's through Amazon. One for a gift and one spare. When I tried installing the gift mouse on an XP machine, it didn't work. The light on the adapter was on but the mouse cursor didn't move. It's like no software is installed. I brought it back home and tried it on one of my computers that has a Laser 5000 already on it and still nothing. Then I opened the new spare mouse and it has the same problem.

I've uninstalled and installed the software several times. My old original Laser 5000 still works. I've tried drivers from the CD that came with it and also from the Microsoft Web site. I checked the batteries and they're good. I've pushed the reset buttons. Device Manager says the devices are working. My old original mouse will not work with either of the new adapters and neither of the new mice will work with my old original working adapter.

The new mice were manufactured 3 months apart so I find it highly unlikely that it's a bad batch and 2 new mice with exactly the same problem is also highly unusual.

I'm open to any suggestions. I've installed a lot of wireless mice and had no problems, but now, two at the same time makes me think I must be overlooking something.

I recently bought a Netgear Wireless N 150 router (although I haven't set it up yet). One reason I chose it is that I was told it can be used as a wired network between our two desktop computers, and as a wireless access point for the laptop. But frankly, I don't always trust what the sales people tell me.

I've read on many sites that wired computers have some advantages over wireless, including security and speed, so I prefer a wired LAN for the main computers (they are within feet of each other and will stay that way). But I would like the convenience of going online via the wireless connection with my laptop in the other room.

I've never done this before (I always just had a wired connection between the 2 desktops and didn't bother going online with the laptop) and I need to know if this setup will cause any problems I should know about.

Please don't suggest I go wireless for the entire LAN -- I'm just too set in my ways to make that leap right now. If my planned setup won't work, I'll stick with my current one and forget the laptop.

Ok quick question, i currently have 2 Dlink DSL 2640R's networked together and set up correctly, the Master router is assigning DCHP addresses and the secondary is forwarding to the relevant computer thats connected to it.

I have two PC's both connected to the secondary router, which are able to network together and use the master routers internet,

However, my girlfriend is buying a new laptop next week, and wants to be able to stream music from one of my PC's to her Laptop while connected to the Master router (so she isnt affected by any lags due to networking happening between my two pc's i regularly switch files between them, hence the second router)

so 2 questions:
Firstly, am i right in my above statement that if My 2 pc's are transferring via router number 2 router number 1 will serve her with no overlap between the 2?

and Secondly, DCHP is off on the 2nd router, and as far as i can see, the main router see's my pc's and the 2nd router is invisible, so am i right in thinking that her PC will be able to see both my PC's on the 2nd router? or will she just see router number 2? (i read somewhere that some routers see all clients connected to the 2nd router as one IP address and the 2nd router sorts it out when it gets there)

Yes. The key is the RJ-45 on the modem; you need a broadband router with a WAN ethernet port. That model will do fine. And you'll then connect the laptop to the router via wireless or a straight ethernet cable. You may need a cross over cable to go between the router and the modem.

all comment and help will be highly appreciated.



A:[SOLVED] please help on WRH54G router client configuration..

Let me say this much. If that were the case with my wireless network, I would be entering my 64 character passkey every time I connected to my wireless network. I could just copy and paste it from a text file, but then what is the point of doing that over just letting the computer save it for me? If your boss wants to make sure his wireless security is strong, his efforts are much better spent doing what I have done by going to the website linked below, copying the "64 random hexadecimal characters (0-9 and A-F)", while using either WPA, or WPA2. The kind of authentication I think he is getting at, is something a radius server would be better at providing, provided your computers were part of a domain.

In Windows 7, I know it is possible to have it not remember your passkey provided that you do not check the checkbox during the connection setup. My memory is a little off with XP. Does it provide something similar?

Recently I purchased a new wireless N router, and have moved the older wireless G router downstairs, where I hope to be able bridge a connection between the two. Google results, ironically enough, have suggested Googling instructions on setting such a thing up.

Connected to this computer (which is upstairs) is the new one, a Belkin Wireless N model no. F5D8236-4 Version 1. Downstairs the the old Linksys Wireless G model no. WRT54GS Version 6. I have a friend who works a lot with networking, who is skeptical of the idea, but Googling it has returned hope that it is possible. The main dispute is how.

Here's the setup: This computer is wired to the Belkin router, which is wired into the modem and is also currently hosting the house's wireless network. The Linksys is downstairs wired only to my Xbox 360. My attempts at even trying to find where to configure these routers have proved pathetic, so I've been driven here.

Could this work, and will it work with these two routers? If so, how do I go about it?

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

Hi there,

My laptop runs on a wireless network at home, but lately, the Wireless Zero Configuration Utility has been acting up. When my laptop becomes connected to the home network, the service itself will go from "Started", to "Stopping". So basically, using the Wireless Zero means that I can only stay online for a couple of seconds before the service resets itself to "Stopping", and back to "started". I'm not really sure what's happening, nor have I received any error codes or messages. All i know is, my Wireless Zero Configuration Utility is switching on and off. The only way I could get online, was to wait for the service to connect me to my network, and disable the service once i was connected, so that it wouldn't reset itself every 10 seconds. Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hello all, I'm having an issue with the Wireless Zero Configuration service

in tools>administrative services the service is set to "automatically" but never says "started" unless it is double clicked on and "start" is clicked

this means that starting it manually is required for some reason after every reboot I try even though it states it is set to automaticall

I checked the registry entry and it is set to automatically, I also uninstalled the intel proset driver incase there was a conflict....I'm unsure of what else to try, please advise

The computer I'm having this issue on is a Dell latitude D820 and the version of windows is XP Pro Service pack 2

please advise

I went to a small office that has a DSL connection. It seems to be going through a router of some kind because they all have IP adresses with the first 3 octets being the same number. (e.g. I hooked up a wireless router to one of the network connections and attached 3 pc's to it. Of course they now all have addresses like Router is a Belkin 802.11g router.

Can I still share resources from the machines with the ones that have the addresses?

Can anyone tell me how to stop the "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" tickbox from unticking everytime I cold boot my Laptop. I have to go into Wireless Networks and retick the box each time to get my wireless connection to work.

A:Solved: Windows XP configuration of wireless connection

Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services - scroll to Wireless Zero Configuration and check the Startup Type. It should be 'Automatic' for what you want.

If your wireless adapter's utility is launched at startup (and disables WZC) then stop it (remove it's shortcut icon from the Startup folder or use msconfig).

I have just bought a D-Link DP-G310 wireless print server and am having problems getting it to work the way I want. I want to be able to print wirelessly from my laptop i.e with neither the laptop or the print server connected by cables to my router.

I did not find the instructions that helpful but have managed to configure the print server so that it connects to my wireless network. The problem is that I can only print if the laptop is connected to my router by cable. If I disconnect the cable, the laptop will connect to the router (and the internet) but will not print. I can also only access the print servers config menu via the cable. If I am connected to the router via the cable, I do not have internet access following the tcp/ip configuration changes I made to be able to get to the print server

Do I need to do anything to the wireless tcp/ip configuration to get it to see the printer (not too sure what I am doing in this area!) Will any such changes interfere with internet access?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ok, so I've been beating my head over this one. And not only have I been beating my head but I've wasted several hours on it too.

The company that I work for purchased a few wireless units from Newegg. The model they chose was the TrendNET TEW-639GR model (you can find the user guide here.)

So here is what we are trying to do and what is keeping us from doing it.

These units work great if you just want to plug it in and connect to the internet. We plug a network cable from our master switch into the WAN port and then wireless works fine, or plugging into the LAN ports on the back works fine. However it assigns the default range to anything that connects to them. Our company uses the to range. So while the internet works, other network functions do not; like opening a connection to our AS/400 or RDC.

I cannot for the life of me get this to work the way we want. If I tell the wireless unit to use the DHCP range of to it reboots and we cannot get back into the device to manage it and it will not allow anything connected to it to access the network or the internet at all. This, even though it assigns the IP to said devices just fine. It just will not work the way it should.

Perhaps I am missing something? If you guys can help me out I would appreciate it so much.

Please let me know if you need further information.

Thank you for looking at this message.

Hey all,

I'm trying to connect my wireless router to my wired router.

Ideally I want the following: internet--> A --> 3 PCs + B -->itouch+ps3 +laptops

A: Gnet External ADSL modem with 4-port switch bb0055 (note: this is a modem/wired router)
B: Trendnet Wireless router tew-639gr

All 3 PCs have internet, so i'm sure my wired router is working properly. Using an ethernet cable, I've connected a Lan port in my Wireless router to a Lan port in my Wired router. My itouch, ps3, and laptops can connect to my wireless but I'm not getting any internet. I've also been able to access my wireless settings and change a couple of things.

From what I've read online, In B, I need to turn off the LAN DHCP and change my LAN IP Address. I've tried a couple of things but it still isn't working. Also what should I set my WAN settings to in my wireless router?

Can I just connect a new wireless N router to the Z100G? If so, would it then be best to connect all the network computers to the new router either via wired or wireless?

This should be pretty easy. Just connect the D-Link router's WAN port to one of the Linksys router's LAN ports. The computers connected to the D-Link router will be isolated from the Linksys connected computers by the D-Link router's NAT firewall.

Hello First time poster here.

I've got a Asus EEE PC 1005PE netbook with Windows 7 Starter Edition. In attempt to clear some memory space (foolishly I couldn't wait two days until a 2G memory stick arrives in mail..) I'd messed up with msconfig and services.msc.

I've followed a guide online to change some service's mode to disable/manual.. and when I restarted the computer the wireless stopped working! Windows troubleshooting gives me no solution. I connected to online using LAN cable and tried to set all the services back to default modes but obviously missed something because network still can't be detected. Seeing as it doesn't show other people's networks either which I usually see along with my own, I don't think it's the router's fault. Everything working perfectly until I changed the service modes and restarted the computer anyways.

Since I have no idea which information you might need to give solution I'm including some screenshots of my Windows' current services states, wireless modem properties, and Window Features(just in case).

Thanks in advance!

Hi guys, I've got a bit of a problem here. See, sometimes the router has too many devices connected to it and the other people living with me don't understand this so they keep their iPhones, iPads, laptops, et cetera connected via WiFi even though I tell them to turn off the WiFi setting when they're not using it. So it kicks me off constantly, not sure why, but I don't mind too much.
Basically when I'm "connected" but not really connected I remotely reset the router so I don't have to walk upstairs all the time.

Anyway, I've reset it without troubles before. But did it tonight and now it's completely screwed up. I run a windows diagnostics test and it comes up with:
"Wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration."

Now I've been searching the internet from my iPhone to find solutions all night and came across this thread:

Two days ago one of my laptops stopped accessing the internet even though it connects to the wireless router (BT Homehub3). Other laptops, Iphones, Xboxes etc still work fine on the same network.

Running Diagnose Connection Problems produces the following error message Wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration

Running the BT Homehub set up utility it connects to the hub but it fails to set up wireless connection saying that the wireless key is incorrect or there is another problem. It then suggests a wired connection which fails to connect (tried different ethernet cables and ports)

After googling for solutions I have tried the following suggestions without success

ipconfig /all

and the successfully pinging the resulting IP address, default gateway & DNS server

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

After the renew prompt the following message appeared: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

In services.msc I disabled and restarted DHCP Client

I have also tried

netsh int ip reset reset.log

netsh winsock reset catalog

as suggested elsewhere on this forum, again without success.

I thought I had cracked it when I found a Microsoft Fix-it-for-me tool (MSfixit50199) but it made no difference.

Hello Everyone,

I am new in setting up a vpn and not so much familiar with others things or what setup is necessary, kindly help the poor guy please???

This is what I need:
- I need to connect the VPN FIREWALL router and use its features at the same time connected to the internet ( the VPN FIREWALL will act as the security for the whole network and the 4G modem/router will be the one supplying the internet)
- Need to establish a VPN connection later after the configuration.
- The server and other lan pc's must be accessible outside the local network when connected to VPN (web server, local pc's shared folder and files, etc)

Here's some details that i hope might help:
- I am using a Quanta 1K5 4G LTE modem/router combo
- I am using a Dynamic public IP address,( but this is not a problem because i am using s DDNS)
- My VPN FIREWALL brand/model is Micronet SP881 B VPN FIREWALL router
- Right now i am already connected to the internet using the vpn firewall physical connection is:
4G modem/router-->hub-->VPN firewall router-->PC
my connection is 4G(LAN)-->VPN (WAN) set the connection type to Dynamic IP
-The remote connection and remote access (web server, ftp,RDP) is working fine on the 4G modem/router alone.

A:Solved: Accesing wireless router over DSL router

Hi WarkaDang, and welcome to TSG,

Do you mean you wish to access the administration pages on both routers? Is so ...

Assuming your computer is using a wired connection to the DSL router and the Wireless router includes LAN ports, the simplest solution would be to plug your computer into one of the LAN ports of the wireless router.

Otherwise, you would need to see if the wireless router supports accessing the admin pages through the WAN port.
WARNING NOTE: Configuring the router to enable WAN access to the administration pages may make it vulnerable to attacks from hackers on the Internet.

I just purchased a wireless router (Linksys) to set up as a wireless access point connected via an ethernet cable to another Linksys wireless router that is connected to my DSL modem. I know I need to connect LAN port to LAN port, but do I need a "straight through" or a "switched/crossover" cable?

I have a Presario M2000 with Windows XP. I have been using a Linksys WRT54G wireless router for three years with no problems. Recently a relative, unable to find the Encryption Key, "reset" the router. It still works fine but it is now an unsecured connection.

I tried to secure the connection by running the Linksys installation CD four times. I called Linksys and was informed that my service contract, which I did not know I had, had expired. If I paid them $39.99 they would walk me through a new installation that I could make secure.

I tried to check out their website,, but it seems not to exist!

I had no idea that I would not be able to change the security settings of the router after a certain amount of time! Is there anything I can do, short of paying them $39.99, to make the wireless router connection secure?

(I am a new member and posted this question twice as I titiled my first inquiry with my user name...sorry!!!! ....wont do it again!)

That is a pretty common Linksys router and you should just be able to download the router manual from Linksys's website and go into the Web Interface of the router to setup the Wireless encryption again.

This seems like it is isolated enough to figure out.

So there's a home network with desktops that are wired and 2 laptops that are wireless. The 1 wireless laptop has had a fresh reinstall of windows XP + all updates.

The problem is that the laptop has problems connecting to certain sites. When we browse to some sites, the images won't dowload (i think it times out) and it shows boxes with Xs in them. some sites work fine, but some always bad.

We've tried the laptop on a different wireless network in a different location and everything worked fine. We've also tried it at the home network with a wired connection, and again it works fine. The other laptop works fine in the home network wirelessly.
The problem only happens when the 1 laptop is on wireless on this 1 router.

I have tried lowering the MTU settings.

another thing that may be related: the problem started around the same time as we initially added the 2nd laptop to the network (it may have been a few days before or after). But when the 2nd laptop is turned off, the problem persists.

I have a new TL-WR740N router by TP-Link. I set up the network with a visible SSID and WPA2 password and I access the internet with no problem from my Windows 7 laptop.

My mom's laptop with Windows Vista is giving an error that I had never seen before (she has used several wireless networks before without any problems). The computer connects to the network and tells me to "Press the configuration button" on the router. The router doesn't have a configuration button. If I click "Next" it will say it "Could not get settings from TP-LINK TL-WR740N - Verify the device PIN (...)" When it first tells me to press the configuration button, I don't have to click next - there is an option that says "I can't find the configuration button, I want to enter a key or passphrase instead." So I click there and put the password. It connects to the network, but only locally. No internet.

I have tried turning the router off and back on (that used to solve a similar problem some time ago). If we plug the router to her laptop using that LAN cable, then she can use internet. I tried to set up the network a second time (the SSID, the password and stuff) using her computer instead of mine, but that didn't do anything.

I am having an odd problem with the wireless capability of my wireless router. When I first got my router I used the Software included but that did not work so I set up my network manually. For several months everything was working perfectly and both physical and wireless connections to the router were working. Recently the wireless capability of the router has stopped working, however it still emits a strong signal and functions perfectly as a non-wireless router.

The problem my laptop encounter when it is try to connect is that the connection status constantly displays "Authenticating". I have tried to rebuild the network, no effect. Have clicked on the repair button, it sits indefinilty on the step "renewing IP address". I have tried physically entering my IP address, no effect. I am positive the problem is not my laptop wireless card because it still fuctions perfectly on all other networks.

I was wondering if it is possible to run a Cat 5 cable from the back of the router straight to my computer, there is 1 connection available on the router, and If this is possible I want to make sure it won't interfere with him getting on the internet and doing whatever he does while I'm on-line.

I have installed a new LinkSys Broadband Router on my system. One end of my house is not getting a real strong signal. I have my previous LinkSys wireless Access Point (not a router, just an access point) that I was going to pack away, but was wondering if there is any way to connect it to the router, extend an Ethernet cable down into the weak end of the house, and boost the signal strength at that end. I can find nothing about daisy chaining these devices together in the LinkSys manual. Thanks.

A:Solved: Can I Add A 2nd Wireless Acces Point to my Wireless Router?

Any access point can be hardwired into a currently wired network (just make sure its IP is unique) some Access points allow you to set it up as a repeater and it then would not even need a wire. But that is only on some of the newer access points and still sometimes does not work well with encryption.

Just installed software and driver forWireless Laser Comfort Mouse - Product Number XA965AA#Abb When I go to the HP Mouse Control Center it says "No device found" All the basic functions of the mouse work, left / right clicks and scroll but i can not configure any of the other buttons. I've look up the support for this mouse on the hp site and it's was less than helpful, only gave me the chance to download a quick start up leaflet, very useful! Any help anyone?????????

My hp wirless laser comfort mouse scrolls horizontally and vertically but exhibits strange behavior. By strange I mean the pointer does not respond when it hovers over minimize, maximize or exit buttons on opened windows of applications. Also, when I remove it, this behavior persists in my laptop using its touchpad and so I have to reboot and omit the use of the comfort mouse entirely. What causes this?

Several minutes, and sometimes less, after boot-up, the mouse becomes erratic, sometimes coming to a complete halt. Thinking it was either the interference of an outside signal or a build-up of static electricity, I have tried several things, including 1) rebooting, 2) disconnecting the power sources, 3) moving my external hard drive away from the mouse, 4) using different keypads to limit potential static build-up, 5) moving my entire system to a somewhat different location (fortunately, it's all on wheels) -- absolutely none of this works! Disconnecting the main power source and reconnecting it solves the problem sometimes, but only temporarily.

I have one around 6 moths old. Recently it started sticking. Not just where my wife spilt something on the keys (she said she didn't but, you know....) but also the spacebar, backspace keys too. I often have to hit them three times before they type.

Are these things safely cleanable? Or should I just dump it and get another (keyboard, that is ; not wife,. Mind you...........)

I believe I'm having some sort of signal problem with my wireless mouse. I play an online game in which you can hold down the right mouse button to look around. Occasionally it will get locked like that, and I have to click the button for it to fix itself.

I surmise that for whatever reason, I click and hold down the button, but when I release it, it is not registering that I have done so, so it just acts as if I am still holding the mouse button down. Clicking it once gets the signal sent that I have released it.

My friend reports having the same problem with his wireless mouse, yet far less frequently.

I've always had little annoying problems like this with wireless mice, and I'm beginning to think they are inferior in overall design to something much less complicated, like a wired mouse. Does anyone know what my problem might be?

A:Problems With Wireless Laser Mouse

Well, the connection between a wireless mouse and its receiver occasionally drops, sometimes for a millisecond or so, sometimes for longer. In your case... It'd seem a bit odd for it to only do that kind of errors.. Anyways, if you want to get rid of this problem, start by testing with a decent wired mouse... The wire is always there, whereas the wireless link isn't.

Bought a Wireless desktop 7000 just after New Years Because I had issues with my Microsoft bluetooth desktop in Vista. I Had one hickup in windows 7 with this bluetooth set and found a driver updated and just had to roll it back and has been fine. So to avoid problems I went to regular wireless in the hopes to eliminate any issue. Well after using the new keyboard and mouse the mouse started to freeze and got progressively worse till it became unuseable. When it freezes the keyboard would stop as well but no disconect sound just freeze then come back. I figured bad desktop set so i put the bluetooth set back on and no problems. I put the other set on a laptop running XP and have been useing it without an issue all day so the set must be fine. I know My PC is way outdated but it actually runs 7 perfectly even with dreamscene on. My usb is the SiS 7001 controller and i've tried drivers new and old, switching ports, resyncing, new batteries, every power save option is off, still the same issue. Funny is that the bluetooth receiver requires 400mA of power and the regular wireless receiver says only 100mA, so it can't be a power issue. I'm lost, i got a brand new keyboard that i can't use. Any help is greatly appriciated.

Hello CuzzinChris, Welcome to the Forum.

If I understand your post correctly, there are 2 sets of wireless input devices involved here.

First you had a MS Bluetooth set. Then you replaced that with a MS wireless set. Is that correct?

If so, did you completely uninstall the old Bluetooth devices from the Device Manager before you disconnected them from the computer? This sounds a lot like conflicting drivers.

Hi People, very simple question. Maybe I could get an answer to my question that I should had asked when I was buying. This wireless mouse uses two "AA" batteries or rechargeable batteries. Question: What about turning it off for the night or whenever I leave my computer? So that I don?t change them every two-three days. Thank you for your help with such a stupid question.

A:Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000

The mouse should go into a low power mode so it doesn't use that much battery power.

New Years Greetings!
I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 (March 2007) with Vista.

I just installed the Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000...several times in fact!
First time it worked. Then after rebooting, it came up with a message with 3 choices:
- install driver (had already done that)
- don't ask again
- (I forget what this said)
So I said "don't ask again" and that's when the mouse went dead! Argh!
After uninstalling and installing from the disk TWICE, (pressing all the correct buttons on the transmitter and mouse and unconnecting the USB before this)
I finally downloaded the driver from online just in case it was the driver that came on the disc. It is Driver Version
Finally got it to work, HOURS LATER! but not on my mouse USB port which is the PS/2 Port that says IRQ 0x0000000C (12)

I had to move the USB connector to another port.
I spent [email protected]! trying to install and uninstall this and am coming to the conclusion that VISTA is the problem. Am I right?
I went to all the help features and did all the right things.
Device Manager says this new mouse is there. Says it is working properly.
But then nothing happened until I moved it to another port.
I would like to plug the USB into the normal mouse port. But it probably won't work. Why?
Am seriously considering a Mac for the first time since I started using a computer in 1980s! Thanks for any and all suggestions. Cheers!

Hoping this is a simple fix.....
the scrolling on my mouse is choppy, when I scroll an IE page it has like a delay? Its not a smooth scroll. I have been all over my manual and support for it and cannot find anything that will change this. The settings offer up slow-fast options but it only causes the page to flip faster or slower duh lol sorry I am at a loss as to how to describe this. Let me know if I can tell you anything that would be of help.

A:MFST wireless laser mouse 6000

No one familiar? I have been digging but cannot find a solution. This really seems to be a simple fix with-in the controls but there is not any option that corrects this. You scroll and the page moves with a delay and a line as if going page by page. I had first thought it was a setting within IE but it also does this in notebook and other software programs. Even sliding the sidebar vs. scroll is choppy. Any suggestion would be nice thank you.

I am new to this forum and please forgive me if i didn't do something by the rules.
Here is my problem, i'll try to be as concise as possible.

Just yesterday i bought Wireless Keyboard/Mouse (laser) combo from Sweex (product code KB225US).

After two hrs of work the mouse pointer stopped responding. This happened after i rebooted my machine because of system freeze while playing with keyboard costumisation and copying files into the external HDD . I recall killing two or three processes, don't remember which one.
Receiver works ok on whichever USB port i put it into.
Mouse buttons work ok
Keyboard works ok
Pointer reacts (a little) only when exposed to direct light.
Batteries are new

Went back to the store this morning for replacement but it worked fine on their newer comps that were for sale. But same problem occurred with two older comps at work this evening.

My actions wereSwitched USB ports several times
Swithced off WiFi/ changed channel (to prevent interference)
Driver uninstall/reinstall several times (from CD/website)
Mouse uninstall/install (device manager)
Uninstall Wacom Intuos3 Ddriver

Nothing worked

I am willing to fight to the death for this mouse
Please help me. Should i go safe mode or registry or whatever? Just don't tell me to format, i have so many softwares installed. However, no other mouse software.

Version 2002
AMD Athlon 64x2

Hi all,

Looking for the above at the best price possible (with consideration towards the toner costs too), colour would be nice but isn't essential as I'll probably buy a dedicated photo printer for these - would be REALLY handy if the recommendations included wireless options too...

I've spent what feels like days reading up on these on the Internet, and am even more confused that I was when I began

Thanks for any help

Ok, I've got a Linksys WRK54G router, with firmware 1.55.04(may 2004) and I just recently got a new laptop that uses a wireless N adapter. It refuses to connect to the router. It sees the network, but can not verify. The computer can connect, I tested it on another, newer router, and the network is working, I tested it with my PSP and DS. But still, for some reason, I cannot connect. How do I fix this? Is it an update, and if so, how?

I'm also going to need to buy a new router soon, the one I'm currently using is being borrowed. If I get a Wireless N router, will all the Wireless G and B devices be able to connect to it? Any specific models that I should get? It does also need to be able to connect to a desktop via ethernet and needs at least 1 additional wired port, in addition to the desktop.
EDIT: It needs to be capable of port forwarding, preferably with support for wireless port forwarding.

Yep, any decent 802.11n router should allow 802.11g and 802.11b connections.

I have a D-Link DIR-615 that's worked well for me, and they're pretty inexpensive to boot.

I have a DSL modem with wireless capability which I've had directly connected to a router via an RJ-45 connection. I'm looking to move my setup, but because of where items are placed in the room, I have to keep the DSL modem where it's at, and I'd rather not run wires around the room. If I pick up a wireless router that contains RJ-45 ports, would I be able to have it replace my original router and have the wireless router connect to the DSL modem (obviously through the wireless connection) and have that work like my current set up? Or am I missing something altogether and I need a different piece to pick up the wireless connection from my DSL modem and connect it to my router?

Thanks for the help.
