Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router (12503024)
We have five computers on our wireless network. I have always connected good to it. Now I am connected but I can't get on the internet. I have checked my firewall settings, and tried three different wireless cards. I have even tried a whole new computer in my room but still nothing, just that same problem, good signal but nothing. Everyone else in the house connects fine, and I can even connect to other wireless networks my card picks up, and can surf the web bt not ours. I have checked all my router settings a million time and everything is good. This is very frustrating. I am no noob when it comes to computers or networks, but this one takes the cake. I really need some help if anyone has some good idea's or knows whats wrong
Go into Device Manager uninstall it then click scan for hardware changes. It should pick it up and reinstall it.
The router may have some corrupt info regarding your device in its routing table. Resetting it to defaults might fix it but of course you have to then set it up again.
A less painful way to make it think you have a different device is to change to MAC for your card. Go to the properites of your network connection , go to configure > advanced and in the list you should see network address or locally administered address. Just put in your MAC but change the last 2 digits to something else . The router will assume it is a new device , give it a new IP and hopefully let you surf. Good luck, let me know if you have any problems.
