You will find that the laptop has it;s firewall turned on. Temporarily disable it (assuming that your router firewall is enabled) and it will work.

What does the LAN do on the modem


There are two halves to a router. The internet (WAN) side a local network (LAN) side.

The term WAN means Wide Area Network and generally refers to the internet.

The term LAN means Local Area Network. That would be for the computers that are in your office or home.

The LAN connects your computer to your printers or to other computers.

I hope that answers your question!

The Linksys configuration URL is http://192.168.1.1 and if you cannot Login or remember the password then you can reset the router back to the factory defaults by -
Power up the Linksys and pressing and holding the pinhole reset button at the back of the Linksys for 30 secs. The router will restart.
Username Login = admin
Password = admin
You can now change the admin password and configure the wireless settings ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption etc.

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
