Question about Dell TrueMobile 2300 Wireless Broadband Router (TM23001)
Downstairs computer is asking for some tcp/ip address?? and the internet light on my router is flashing. is that how it is suppose to be? any feed back would be appreciated,
Do you have another computer connected to the router, and does it work? Also, have you checked Device Manager on the basement computer to make sure Windows sees the NIC card, and not just the Wireless network card?

Your wireless router issues IP address to your computers.
Your wireless card on your downstairs computer needs to be configured to communicate with the router, ie WEP or WAP encryption - if your have enabled it, SSID etc.
To configure the TCP/IP settings on your downstairs computer -
Click on Start - Control Panel - then Network Connections - then right click on your Wireless Network connection - click on Properties.
Then in "This connection uses the following items, scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on Properties. Under the General Tab make sure Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically are selected. Click OK.
If you do not see TCP/IP in the Wireless Network Connection then click on the install button and then install the TCP/IP driver.
IF TCP/IP is OK then before you do the following, turn off or disconnect the power to your wireless router, wait for 1 minute before connecting the power again. Wait till the LED lights indicate that it is on line again and the wireless is on then :-
Click on Start - Control Panel - then Network Connections - then right click on your Wireless Network connection - click on View Available Wireless Networks
Do you see your wireless network (ie. your wireless router)?
If so click on your wireless router and then click Connect.
You can also click on Repair to try to reconnect to your wireless router.
