Finding a local area connection

When i start my computer it says that its status is aquiring network address, but then it says that the local area connection status is limited or no connectivity and that it is not able to access the internet or some network resources. Is there a universal address that can be assigned? I do not have the manual, or is it because of the rural area i live in?

Is this a wireless connection?
If yes than most of the times the problem is that the signal is weak, try to put your Router/AP to a better place and see if you can connect, netstumbler can give you a hand in this, not sure if it's working under vista or not, but under xp it's perfect. My experience ist that what you need to have at least is 15 For SNR for your Router from the place where you are trying to connect. If it goes under 10 it will drop you down.
Better SNR means stronger signal and that's all that matters with a simple wireless connection.

If you have Windows XP then try this, for Windows 7 and Vista also the procedure is similar. If you have Vista or 7 then tell me I'll post the tutorial for that also.
  1. In Windows XP, click the Start button and select Control Panel.

  2. Click the Network and Internet Connections category.

  3. Note: If you are using Classic View, you will see the control panel icons instead of categories. Double-click the Network Connections icon.

  4. Click the Network Connections control panel icon.

  5. Double-click Local Area Connection, listed under LAN or High-Speed Internet.

    wxp_e03.gif

  6. When the Local Area Connection Status window is displayed, click the Properties button.

    wxp_e04.gif

  7. In the Local Area Connection Properties window, do the following:
    • Verify that the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) box is checked.
    • Note: If your Ethernet adapter is not listed in the Connect using box, you need to install your adapter.

    • Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) once to highlight it and then click the Properties button.

  8. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window, do the following:
    • Click Obtain an IP address automatically.
    • Click Obtain DNS server address automatically.

How to find the MAC address of a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router


If you have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and you need to find its MAC address for some reason, this article will walk you through the process of obtaining the address through the router's web interface. Other methods may be used instead -- such as Windows Vista's Network Map or a third party utility. (The MAC address is also printed on a sticker on the bottom of most routers, but if the router is hidden behind a computer desk or trapped in a tangle of wires, using the web interface will probably be easier.)

First, open a web browser window and type in your router's local IP address (typically, 192.168.1.1) and hit Enter. When prompted, type in your username and password to gain access to the router's interface.

Once you've logged in, the blue and black Linksys page will appear. Click on the Status tab (the last one on the right).

The MAC address is assigned to the network interface port inside the router, not to the actual router as a unit, so since the WRT54GS has two network interface ports (one for your local area network and one for access outside your network) it will therefore have two MAC addresses.

The MAC address for the port that connects to the wide area network or to your Internet service provider can be found under the Router heading beneath the Status tab. It will be listed below Firmware Version and Current Time, and it will appear as six pairs of letters and numbers separated by colons.

The other MAC address, the one for the local port, can be found under the Local Network heading, and it will be the first item listed there. Typically these two addresses will be very similar -- maybe separated by one or two digits.

I have dlink N150, i want to change the wireless password, how do i do that? i also want to know who are connected to my wireless network


You'll have to login to the router configuration page. First, in Windows Operating System, click on the Start menu, type "cmd" into the search field and press enter.
In the command window that appears, type in "ipconfig/all". If you are on a computer that is connected directly to the router, scroll to the heading that is titled "Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection". If you are connected wirelessly, scroll to the heading titled "Wireless Adapter Local Area Connection".
Find the "Default Gateway" in the correct section and note it. In your default internet browser, type the Default Gateway address into the address bar and press enter.
You should see a small window come up asking for a username and password. By default the username/password for D-Link routers is admin/admin or admin/blank.
After you successfully login, you can find the section to change the wireless password. Select WPA/WPA2 as the authentication type and enter a passphrase. Be sure to save your changes!
Lastly, to see a list of connected client computers, browse to the status section of the router's configuration page.

The router must be configured to match your

Internet service. If you do not know your

Internet connection configuration, please

contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

By default, the router is pre-configured with

these settings:

• Automatically set IP addresses for

computers on your LAN (connected to the

router's ports 1-4). The router acts as a

server for dynamic host configuration

protocol (DHCP) and assigns IP addresses

in the range 192.168.123.100 through

192.168.123.199

• The default LAN IP address for the router is

192.168.123.254 with a subnet mask of

255.255.255.0

• The Internet service connected to the
router's WAN port uses a dynamic IP

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

Linksys router connects and says it has an excellent signal but will not aquire an address please help


Try a hardwire computer and get into the setup page of the router by typing 192.168.1.1 on your browser . Make sure you have changed the SSID or the network name of your router to your choice. Check if you have security set. If you have one make sure they match your computer.
