Setting up routers is best when done one step at a time.

Has anyone connected successfully directly to the internet service providers hardware using a wired connection, if possible?

Is the router connected through the internet service providers hardware or does it replace the internet service providers hardware?

Before dealing with the wireless has any computer connected successfully to the internet using a wired connection THROUGH THE LINKSYS ROUTER? They will not have to stay that way but a test without the wireless is less complicated.

When all the above is successful it is time to test the wireless, preferably first unencrypted for a short time and later probably encrypted in the final solution.

Does all the above sound like a reasonable step by step approach? If so let's continue --

First let me know how far we have successfully tested in the step by step tests by answering the above.

In planning for wireless access see this response and consider how much assistance you may require

See http://www.fixya.com/support/t301418-encryption_off

Then I will provide instructions to the level you require.

There are some skills you will need as we go along so here are some tests you can attempt

Perform the following steps on a wired and a wireless computer -- this will yield useful information and record the answer.

This assumes Windows XP (probably Win2000 and maybe Vista)

Click Start select all All Programs select Accessories and click on Command Prompt

In the open window type

ipconfig /all

Record the adapter, IPaddress, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS addresses for each adapter (there may be more than one and report them here for each machine.

then you will ping the default gateway address that probably starts with 192.168.?.? to do this in the open window type

Ping (default gateway)

It works when a line comes back with elapsed time generally in ms or milliseconds -- it fails when you recieve a timeout message these normally occur in a block of 4.

If you get stuck provide me the answers you have determined and tell me what went wrong and we will start again from there. OK?

3 failed attempts to connect HP DV6t laptop


First as a test, turn off the wireless security, and see if the laptop can connect.

If it can connect with security turned off, then it is likely that you are making some type of mistake with the password. (Such as caps lock being on, or having a keyboard error.)

Good Luck!

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?

I can't get my new Vista computer to connect to my wireless network


I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since.

If that doesn't help, try removing the Linksys software from your computer and try the network adapter remove/reinstall again.
