Question about Network & Wireless Adapters
I have a desktop using Win MEand my broadband provider does not support Win ME so the setup disk does not work in my machine. I also use a laptop - Win XP - which does not have a problem. I am using a USB LINKSYS Wireless G to connect to the wireless router. The connection to the router is there but I can not connect to the internet. Any suggestions - other than buying a Win XP machine - which i will eventually do - that can get me on the net using my wireless setup? Thanks and regards
Hi, I am assuming that you have installed the necessary USB drivers for the LINKSYS Wireless G in your ME machine and that you can ping your router from the same desktop. Based on your post/description "...The connection to the router is there but I can not connect to the internet...." would indicate that your Win ME desktop is not configured to use the wireless router as the default internet gateway. Rather than "Obtain IP add automatically" in your ME, try manually configure and to "Use the following IP address". Follow and use the numbers of your laptop's wifi connection except for the IP add. Simply add 1 to the last digit. For example if your laptop's wifi IP add is 192.168.100, make the ME 192.168.1.101. All the other numbers should be the same (SubNet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS) To be able to get the laptop's numbers, open a command prompt and type "ipconfig /all". It is also possible that security settings (WEP, WPA or MAC filter) are not working right with the ME machine, try turning them off in your router to test. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
