Cannot connect lap top or printer wireless and also connect to the internet via AT&T motorola modem

Dell vostro 1700 lap top Vista Business OS AT&T DSL via Motorola modem Cannot connect via wireless system using linksys WRT54G router. also cannot connect new Canon wireless printer MP620. If DSL router is connecting to the internet then can not operate wireless thru the Linksys modem. If linksys router is connected then can not connect to the internet. Yet with same laptop and same router in my vacation home where I connect to the internet via sattelite Ihave no problem setting up my lap top to operate wirelessly. So at present loction the lap top is hardwired to both the internet connection on the ATT DSL modem and hard wired to my wireless printer. can any one help. I did try cloning the laptop IP address into the linksys modem but that did not work either

    I am not certain what you mean. I set up the linksys router using the disc supplied but once all directions are followed and I disconnect the yellopw ethernet cable from the lap top I can no longer connect to the internet There is an X showing on the network map between the router icon and the web icon

    i have dsl and that seems to be the problem in a nutshell so sounds like I have to find out how to configure the roter with PPOe. Is that correct?

    You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
    Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
    Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

    Have you set the Linksys router to PPoPE and type in your username and password?

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

I am connected to a wireless server but the lap top will not connect to the internet


Does it have Internet connected to the wireless server? If not, you will see a yellow exclamation point within the wireless icon (assuming you are running Windows XP, Vista or 7).

Is it a public access point? Sometimes (Mc Donalds is an example) you will be redirected to their access page when you open up Internet Explorer.

Hopes this helps,
