Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
By "verifying my lap top", I assume you mean that the router probably has MAC address filtering enabled.
(Sidenote: Never use the wizzard, because you have no idea what that program does and it is often so much more work to verify and correct everything. Put it away and do it manually!)
In order to get the MAC address from your laptop, start a command prompt (start -> RUN, type "cmd") and enter the command "ipconfig /all" (pay attention to the space before the "/" and: no quotation marks!)
The output will display all network properties, but you have to look for the section that contains your wireless network configuration. You will find a line that looks like
"Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-13-56-BF-5B-12"
Copy the hex string (the bold part) and paste it in the MAC address filtering page of your router.
Since you did not mention make and model of your router, I can't give you specifics here, but your manual will tell you how to do that.
If this helped you, please come back and leave a comment, so others might use the same solution.
If this did not help, you probably have wireless network security installed and have to provide the laptop with the network key. You can find this key in one of the pages of your router setup. Again - refer to your manual how to get there (usually by typing 192.168.x.x in a web browser). Then copy the key and paste it in the appropriate field, when the laptop tries to connect. If you need assistance with that, I am happy to help you if you give me the details of your router.
