Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
Ok, well give this a shot then. But is it possible that the other computer is connected to a network called Belkin?
It is also possible that MAC address filtering is turned on on the router so it will not let your computer connect. if it is, you will have to add your mac address (00-1A-73-DE-12-D5) to the approved list of MACs.
Anyway, you can try manually setting your IP address.
and see if that gets you on. If it doesn't, and MAC address control isn't the problem, then either you have a driver problem or your laptop and wireless router hate each other desparately.
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway - 192.168.2.1
DNS Server - 192.168.2.1
This will force you computer to get network settings that match the netowrk. But beware, this will affect you if you try to go another network. You will then have to switch back to automatic configuration. but if you set up these settings and still can't get on, there is something wrong with the driver configuration. But make sure that there isn't another network called belkin.
If the manual configuration doesn't work, try updating the wireless driver from the manufacturer's website. Also try connecting to a wireless hotspot somewhere else and see if it is a computer problem or a problem with this specific wireless network.
Post back if you need anything further, I'll hang in with ya as long as I can.
