Re: Internet not working
Clear all your temp internet files as you may have corrupt cookies, assuming you have been able to surf before.
Or run this
ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.(note the gap between ipconfig and the /).
If you havent, run the network sharing wizard ensure you have set your router to enable DHCP which will give your pc an automatic IP address.
Also check the properties of your network card and on the TCP/IP properties ensure 'Obtain IP address automatically' is selected.

First to check whether Internet is working Connect your computer and Router with Ethernet wire instead of connecting wirelessly. If Internet works on wired mode that means security key for wireless is wrong. Change the SSID (name of your network) from Router login page and then connect again while ensuring you are entering the correct key. As sometimes even if you enter wrong security key Computer will show connected to Router but you will not be able to access anything.
Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.
You need to setup cisco page, with your ISP. Your setup name and password must be same for all computers. All computers for this installation must connected by wire at the beginning. And make sure you enable the wireless options on Linksys page. READ HELP form Linksys main page.
you have to unplug your cable modem before you connect the router. after you have connected the router you plug the power back on the cable modem then the router and you should be able to browse the net
First make sure wireless is turned ON or enabled on the computer, then use the View Available Networks to connect to the your SSID or network name. IF you can connect to router then you should be able to surf Internet.
Routers in general divide you internet connection across the amount of devices you have plugged into it, but not evenly. For example, computer A can be browsing a web page, and someone else can be playing games on Xbox live. Due to amount of traffic internet gaming creates, it can slow your internet connection tremendously depending on the speed of your connection (especially if you have the slowest broadband connections out there, 1.5mb and under).
However, the fact that you mentioned that it only happens with wireless devices, leads me to believe that it is a router issue. I would first begin by resetting your router to its factory defaults and retesting your internet after its been set up properly (linksys can walk you through this).
If that doesn't work, the next step would be to buy a new router.
Third, would be to upgrade your connection to a higher speed, if your provider allows for it, but this is unlikely that you will have to go to this resort.
