Question about Computers & Internet
You have briefed about the hardware or physical connections but not the configuration of the wireless router. On the hardwired computer go RUN, type http://192.168.1.1 (best guess for Linksys' LAN url), then use 'Linksys' as the user name, 'admin' as the password and a web page will appear showing the configuration of wired, wireless, security, status, etc. Make sure that DHCP is selected if you are using cable, PPPoE for DSL or STATIC if you are connected to NORAD and know the IP address :). Regardless of the Layer 1 media you select you can select the STATUS tab, select DHCP then at the bottom of the screen click on the RELEASE button and watch the IP lists go to all zeros. Then click on the RENEW button and when you see real IP adresses appear (sometimes requires a second click) then open a browser. This should enable you to view wireless networks and associated signal strength. Other considerations are in Network settings for the particular NIC where you must ensure that the radio is enabled and that you have A, B, G or N enabled. Also in your firewall settings look at the LAN settings and a bunch of check boxes will be displayed -check them all as well as in the ICMP settings where a bunch more boxes will be displayed and check those. No OS was specified but many parameters can also be determined by going to RUN, type cmd, type ipconfig /all or ipconfig /? for command options. Well there's some food for thought. Enjoy!
