What is the network adapter connected to - a modem or a router? Is there any other computer or device that is connected to that modem or router and is able to acquire an ip address? This would generally happen when the network adapter is not able to automatically negotiate with the connected device (which might have 10/100 ethernet ports). You can resolve this by forcing the network adapter speed to, for instance, 100 mbps. Please revert back with further observations.

    You may try forcing the card speed to 10 mbps half duplex, however, just to tell you that linksys routers have issues working with gigabit network adapters.

Pls try this following below and just cool down and read through,

Physical causes and What to Do...
  • Network card could be faulty or malfunctioning, or the port on the card itself. Make sure lights show on the card and if they don't, replace with another one that works.
  • Check that your router or the server is turned on so that the laptop can acquire a valid IP address.
  • Double check to make sure the wireless card on the laptop is turned on. Do not assume it is on by default, do it yourself.

Logical or Software causes and solutions

Many of us are online buyers. Items sold on the internet, especially used items, are not in their default settings. Previous owners do not always reset them before sale, and this causes a lot of issues and unwanted beheaviours. Below are some of the common settings found on Routers:
  • ISP user name and password. If you want to connect to the internet check with your ISP to get your own User name and password, if not ignore this step.
  • Looking at the security options, make sure:
    • MAC address Filtering is not enable. If it is, remove all the MAC addresses on the MAC address table, and enter your Laptop's network card MAC address. With MAC Filtering On, do not forget to enter the MAC addresses of all you wireless devices on to its table.
    • Wireless key settings. Disable the wireless key settings and configure it to meet your requirements.



  • A Laptop to Laptop connection, please make sure the wireless settings on both laptops are the same.
  • Inconsistent wireless Keys. The key on the laptop has to match the one configured on the router.
  • Drivers out of date, update your wireless adapter drivers or your router firmware by checking the manufacturer web site.
  • Wireless not enable on the router. If wireless is not enable on the router, there is no Wi-Fi signal at all. some Router would have wireless turned off by default, and it is the administrator decision to use it or not.
  • DHCP Server misconfiguration. Make sure the DHCP (Dynamic Hosts Configuration) server is properly configured:
    • Enough IP address lease for your network devices
    • The server itself is not down

  • Some simple troubleshooting methods are:
    • Repair the connection. On Windows, click start - Control panel and then Network connections; chose the right connection icon, right then select repair. Windows will, temporarily, disable and re-enable your network adapter to attempt a connection.
    • Reset the IP stack. Click start then Run. At the command prompt type "command" or cmd for short, you are then presented with the command prompt window. Type "netsh int ip reset resetlog", and then restart your Laptop. This applies to desktop computers as well.
    • Reset the router to its factory default. Most routers we use at home are fitted with a reset button, by pressing and hold it for few seconds will bring the router to its factory default. This method solves a lot of the issues mentioned earlier, in one go.

    your computer is not getting IP address from the router. You said that you reset the router. Press the Reset button on the router and hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. Unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. restart your computer and check if that connects. If that doesn't work then assign a static IP address in the range of your router. you will need to find out the default IP address of the router. you will find the default IP address of the router in the router manual or if you go to the web site of the manufacturer, you will get the IP address of that router. Now once you assign a static IP address to the computer it will show you connected , now try to set up your router.

    One of five PCs not connecting to Belkin 54G router


    I would connect it to the router using a lan cable to verify that it will get a IP address and connect to the internet. Write down the IP information and make a static wireless connection with that info. It should work hardwired and wirelessly with this info. If it doesn't work wirelessly you may have a bad wireless card or you may find that their is already conflicting static IP info in the connection that has to be removed. Make sure that on your internet protocol (TCP/IP) properties that you have selected "Obtain an IP address automatically" and Obtain DNS server address automatically". Clear any settings that you may see there.

    Acquiring Address Problem


    you will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

    Tiscali wirless connection issue


    Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.

    You can however just use a static ip address.
    First of all find out the network address in use.
    eg. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.2.1
    to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig

    1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Click Network and Internet Connections. 4. Click Network Connections. 5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

    Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:

    IP Address 192.168.0.2
    Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
    Default gateway 192.168.0.1

    2wire 1800hg random no internet/random access, repair/wait fixes


    It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."
