Question about Computers & Internet
Still no luck. It is very strange. It was working fine and suddenly I cannot connect with any laptop using the wireless card. The computers see the network and the signal is strong. They just will not connect. If I use the cable and plug into the router, then it works fine.
I had same problem as Fairway30, In our case two laptops and one ISP. Both set to automatic connect. One would work the other would not. Used Gromley's fix plus tweaked ip address. Laptop 1 is xxx.xxx.x.100. Laptop 2 is xxx.xxx.x.199. Our router has an automatic DNS allowing range 100 to 199. The problem was that our ISP would only allow on LAN IP (must pay more if you want more than one). However because our router is wireless and has automatically DNS, tweaking ip allows for 100 simultaneous connections (no charge). Thanks Gromley.

It appears your laptops are not getting an ip from your router, this is most common reason they won't connect.......do you remember if you have set your router to act as a dhcp or if your router is 192.168.2.1 then go into your connections and set your wireless by right clicking on it....then go to properties.....choose tcp/ip then click properties button .....then click use the following ip address...
in the address type 192.168.2.5 and in the mask type 255.255.255.0 .....the default gateway should be the address of the router 192.168.2.1 and leave the dns as obtain dns automatically then click ok the all the boxes closing them, then restart your computer.
now if your router is address of 192.168.2.1 then let me know so i can give you alternative settings.
but i don't have history i think you said you had a belkin router.
hope this helps
