Could be that the laptop's encryption settings are wrong and it cannot perform the DHCP and thus may reverts to 169.x.x.x which is called "auto-IP"

    Normally the ip assignment is when the DHCP server or NAT device doesn't assign an IP address and the PC automatically assigns the Private IP number that goes to no where.

    Double left click on your Wireless connection if you use the Windows Zero configuration Utility, left click on properties, Double Left click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and make sure the top box has a dot in the Obtain IP Address Automatically and Obtain DNS Server Address automatically.

    If these are OK, you may need to ethernet in to the router to see if the DHCP tables are full on your router. If all IP addresses have been pulled that the router can assign and they haven't expired yet, you may not be able to pull a new IP. This would only happen if someone has changed the number of IPs the router could assign out which i dont think so in your own case if the problem still continues then give the TCP/IP interface a new set of addresses. change the settings to "receive DHCP automatically", hope this helps.thanks and God bless do let me know if you need further help

    for a initial info/solution try to reset your wireless router. you can see a small hole on either right or left area, a paper clip will do to reset the pin inside.

I cannot get internet on my laptop from an open access point with Time Warner internet


Hello,

Though you are getting strong signals from the router, the router itself may not be connected to the Internet. The owner may leave the router on but power off the modem. It is possible that they may use the router for thier own private network with no connection to the Internet. When you connect to the router, check your network and sharing center to see if you see an X marked on the connection between the router and the Internet. If you do, the router is not connected to the modem.

Good Luck

On a Dell Latitude - no internet connection


The fact that the lights are on and that you get wireless signal means that the computer is making a connection with the router, but the router is not making a connection to the internet.
Try a sequenced power-cycle. Turn off the computer (completely off, not hibernating or sleeping), then turn off your modem (if you have one) and finally turn off your router.
Wait 5 minutes and turn it on in the backwards order. First the router, then the modem and finally the computer. If it's still not working, contact your ISP's tech support, there's probably an outage in the area or another problem with your internet service,

No internet access with new Linksys wireless PCI Adapter


Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.
