Hi all,

I have a netbook running win 8 and having problems setting up  my chromecast device.

I have an error message saying unable to connect to wireless network.

 

It could be a router problem.

 

I live on a community housing complex and the wi fi was recently installed by the management  who put a wireless router in every apartment..

 

The router is a     Cab.link  and I cannot find any info/specs. on this item.

 

I would be grateful if anyone could please  shed some light on this.

 

Thanks

rj

Is there a part number on the router?

 

Is the error on the tv or on your computer?

 

On the netbook open an elevated command prompt and type:

 

ipconfig 

 

what is the IPv4 Default Gateway?

I meant the IP address of the default gateway.  It's usually something like 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1  Usually if you open a browser and type in the IP address of the gateway and hit Enter it will take you to the router then you can try to log on.

Try some other common defaults:

 

admin

password

 

blank

admin

 

admin

blank

 

blank

blank

 

password

password

 

 

blank 

password

 

 

 

Let's see what type of connection you have:

 

Get the free version of Speccy:
 
http://www.filehippo...download_speccy (Look in the upper right for the Download
Latest Version button  - Do NOT press the large Start Download button on the upper left!)  Download, Save and Install it.  
 
Close all browsers and open progrms before running Speccy.  Run Speccy.  When it finishes (the little icon in the bottom left will stop moving), File, Save as Text File,  (to your desktop) note the name it gives. OK.  Open the file in notepad and delete the line that gives the serial number of your Operating System.  (It will be near the top about 10 lines down.  If it's not there that's good just go on)  Save the file and close notepad  Attach the file to your next post as it is usually too large for the forum (Click on More Reply Options then Choose file, select the file, Open, Attach this File) Uninstall Speccy.

tried the different combinations of u/n and p/w recommended but without success.

 

another home owner on my complex has informed me that this problem has occured in several other apts. and the management have retained a free maintenance provision that fixes any wi fi issues [ its a new installation ]  .....  i will be contacting them now.

i would like to thank you very much for your help in this matter.
