I recently purchased a 2wire at&t router for my computer to connect to the internet. I have 2 computers connected to the router via ethernet. I want to turn the wireless light on so that it's green but I don't know how to. Can someone please help? It connects to the access point and I know the wep key but it can't obtain the IP address.

On your computer wireless card configuration, try changing the fixed IP address to the following -. In the TCP/IP Protocol set Obtain an IP address automatically and set Obtain DNS server address automatically.
IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.254 is the default gateway of an AT&T modem router (RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY) (2WIRE). for this ip address should be able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem and if not your computer is connected to a different network.
1) try connecting the computer to the 2wire RG using a ETHERNET cable (if your connected via wireless) 2) make sure that the DSL light is solid and not blinking. 3) if your computer already connected by a ETHERNET cable, try accessing the same ip address if your able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem it means that your computer will be able to connect to the internet. 4) try this also: this for internet explorer: click tools - connections - LAN settings ( if there's a tick mark on PROXY SERVER remove it ) if you do have tick mark on PROXY SERVER then your computer have a virus, because virus can put a tick on PROXY SERVER without you noticing it. after removing the tick you will be able to connect to the internet again.
The network card should be configured to obtain a IP address automatically,
Open Control Panel - click on Network Connections - right click on the network/wireless card - select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on Properties and then enable Obtain an IP address automatically and enable Obtain DNS server address automatically.then click OK and click OK again.
1. check your network adapter TCP/IP settings if its set into "Obtain as IP address Automatically". 2. if the settings is set as Automatic and your not getting IP address then select "Use the following IP Address" 3. use IP address followed to your router address like if192.168.0.1 in router type192.168.0.2or192.168.0.3just check the next address IP in your network. 4. after typing subnet IP will automatically set 5. type the router IP address as your default gateway 6. click OK to save your new settings
first check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.
try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following: - explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address - purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 188.8.131.52 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp
It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."
