Make sure it does;

If Automatic Configuration DHCP is enabled on the router your PC wireless or ethernet TCP/IP properties should also be set to "Obtain TCP/IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically".

If your security is set to WEP your PC wireless network or ethernet connection properties should also to be set to the same authentication type.

I have a Linksys wireless-G 2.4 GHz router directly connected to my PC. I've just bought a MacBook Pro and want to go online via this router. The Macbook finds the router but cannot connect to...


The reason you cannot connect, is you have to match the settings from your router to Airport- usually it requires you setting the security on your router to a specific WPA2, Wep, or no security- invariably I have had trouble getting clients to get online with the WPA2 set to the either or setting- but set it to either public or private- they're online. Anyhow, in order to do that- you will need to log into your router- if you have a pc/mac hard wired into the linksys via ethernet, open a web browser window and go to 192.168.1.1- it would be under wireless security. Match the settings on your Macbook, you should be able to go wireless at that point. Another solution, depending on your internet service provider... is that the provider could share your system remotely and assist with getting you online wirelessly (I know for a fact that Verizon DSL Business does do this. )

CAN'T cONNECT


You must set up the security settings that are in the laptop to match the settings in the router. These may be WEP, WAP, MAC address filtering or others. To change the settings in the router, you would used the web based interface. If you need more info:

No network


The Wireless Security of the router doesn't match your laptop's wireless settings. Make sure you configure the wireless security password correctly on the laptop. If you don't know your wireless password, try these steps:

-Connect your laptop hard wired to the router.
-Open Internet Explorer and on the Address Bard type http://192.168.1.1 press enter.
-It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there's no username and on the password type admin and hit OK. If admin didn't work, type your own password for the router.
-When you get to the Setup page, click on Wireless Tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security.
-Look for Security Mode. If Security Mode is WPA-Personal, the Passphrase is the wireless security key that you need to enter on the laptop's wireless settings. If the Security Mode is WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless security key. Connect to the wireless network and type it in. That should solve your wireless connection problem.

Wireless channel


The ethernet cable connecting the router to the WAN doesn't require a channel. The channel setting is there for when laptop computer connects to the wireless router.

Channels 6 and 11 are mostly used in this scenario.

Does your wireless router communicate with your Internet provider wirelessly?


Hope this helps :) Please leave a rating. Thanks..
