    Hi there,

    do you get a "propper" IP address from your routers DHCP server?

    - 192.168.x.x?

The problem could be that the static IP address is not in the range as the IP address as the router.
You should let the wireless router issue an IP address to your computer.
Change the TCP/IP settings in your laptop's wireless card to Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically.
Then reboot your laptop.

How come the http://192.168.123.254 address isnt working?



Find your computer's IP address : Windows 7, Vista, and XP, using the command prompt

  1. Click Start, and then select All Programs. Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
  2. Click Accessories, and then Command Prompt.

  3. At the command prompt, enter: ipconfig The IP address (or IPv4 address, if you are using Windows 7 or Vista) will be a series of numbers following the pattern xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (i.e., 156.56.27.32).
Note: If you are using PPP with a modem at home, your IP address will change each time you log in.
Windows 7, without using the command prompt
  1. In the system tray, click the network connection icon and select Open Network and Sharing Center.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, click Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, click Wireless Network Connection (Network Name).
  3. Click Details... . Your IP address will appear next to "IPv4 Address".
Windows Vista, without using the command prompt
  1. From the Start menu, right-click Network, and then select Properties. This opens the Network and Sharing Center.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, click View Status to the right of Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, click View Status to the right of Wireless Network Connection.
  3. Click Details... . Look for the address next to "IPv4 IP Address".
Windows XP, without using the command prompt
  1. From the Start menu, right-click My Network Places, and then click Properties.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, double-click Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, double-click Wireless Network Connection.
  3. Click the Support tab, and then click Details... . The window that appears will display the IP address.
Your IP address has to be in the 192.168.123.xxx range



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

Hi Friend, In this case as you have told me that you have other laptop which is working fine wirelesly. I would like you to check the IP address of the system in which you are facing the issues.
To check the IP address: 1) If system has XP Click on "Start" and then "Run". Type "cmd" in Run and hit enter A black screen will pop up, in that type "ipconfig", where the cursor will be blinking Check the IP adress under " Ethernet adapter local area connection" & " Wireless adapter"
2) If it is Vista/Win 7 Click on Start again and in Search field type cmd and hit enter Same black screen will pop up and repeat the same above steps in the black window and check the IP adress

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.

WRT54G linksys router


Hi,
The first thing I would do is check to make sure the desktop with XP has the network card set to "obtain an IP address automatically"

if it is set to obtain an ip address automatically, I need to know the following:

What is the IP addresss of the router?
What is the IP address of the Vista computer?
What is the IP address of the xp computer?

You can find the ip address by going to start, then run, then type cmd and hit enter. at a command prompt type: ipconfig and hit enter.
