I have had a flawless connection to internet etc with my Dell PC, Time Warner modem and MacBook Pro laptop until recently. Now the laptop does not see the netwoork. Called Linksys and they want me to download and install updated firmware - but not wirelessly. Shall I try to do this or should I just go buy a new router? I have already spent an entire day on this mess. ALl settings on the PC are fine (IP, subnet etc) Thanks
The firmware from Linksys doesn't work. Don't waste your time. Maybe the following freeware from http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm could help. "LSP-Fix" is a utility to repair a loss of Internet access by repairing the LSP chain by removing the entries left behind when LSP software is removed or altered by malware or spyware remover. Sometimes ZoneAlarm does the damage as well when blocking intruders. Hope it works for you.

Though you are getting strong signals from the router, the router itself may not be connected to the Internet. The owner may leave the router on but power off the modem. It is possible that they may use the router for thier own private network with no connection to the Internet. When you connect to the router, check your network and sharing center to see if you see an X marked on the connection between the router and the Internet. If you do, the router is not connected to the modem.
If your modem(the device given by your ISP) connected the linksys router on WAN port just power down all devices and power on modem and make sure all lights are on and then power on linksys router. This should fix most problems. If no luck connect your computer to modem directly and check if you are able to log on to internet! If your modem is not working then your ISP is the best option to call!
I had usualy solved mysterious problems with other intel PRO wireless cards not authenticating, loosing signal, etc, by simply upgrading to the latest intel drivers. Also using the Intel connection manager instead of the windows or Dell/other notebook manfucaturer's product is far more reliable. Hope this helps.
HI. you have to check first what kid of modem u have.. im sure if the laptop is connected directly to the modem, u have a wired connection and u can connect to the internet.. if ur modem is a cable modem, u need to mac clone the mac address of the computer that can connect to the internet. u need to connect the computer that can connect to the internet to the router and do a mac clone and the internet connection settings is dhcp..if u are using a username and password to connect to the internet, u need to use the pppoe settings on the router, and if ur isp give u a static ip address, u need to set the router on static ip. how u can check the ip address, click on start, run and type cmd and it will show a dos prompt, type ipconfig/all and it will list the ip address, subnetmask, default gateway and dns server.. u need to setup the router first in order to talk to ur modem..
1) Go to the computer that is connected directly to the Linksys router.
2) Open up Internet Explorer (or your favorite browser).
3) In the address bar, where it says "http://www...." clear out everything in there and type in the following numbers:
Press "enter" on your keyboard. This will open up a dialog box asking for your username and password. Try leaving the username blank, and type in "admin" for the password.
Now you're in a web page that controls your router. Look for the Wireless section, and make sure wireless is enabled. Check for wireless security as well, because you may need to enter a long number in your computer once it finds the router.
Try to remove the preferred networks on your Presario then try connecting again. If you have wireless security enabled on your router, you have to enter that. Make sure that the settings on your router is the same as your wireless adapter so that they can synchronize.
If you have difficulty with that, just ask me and I'll answer as soon as I can.
