    I have a similar problem where I have had the wrt54g for the last 2 years with no problems and now for no reason I can not connect wirelessly with any of the 3 laptops previously connected without problem. I can connect via cat5 cable directly to to router but not wirelessly. The laptops "see" the router but wont connect. I have 2 running xppro and 1 running vista.

    WRT54G wifi connection to Gateway laptop with XP Home edition stopped working after 1 - 2 years. When I click on available network connections and "Connect" it gives the "Acquiring network address" message for a minute or two, then "Limited or no connectivity." I can connect to internet when plugged in directly from router. Other Sony VAIO connects in Wifi mode no problem. I had WPA set up and changed it to WEP. I don't know what else to try as the wifi and router work for other laptops. Can the Gateway's Wifi ability be "broken?"

If so go ahead and right click on it and select wireless connections , If not open network connections, now you should see detect wireless networks, Click on that,( IF SO ) Now you should get a window that shows your wireless connections, Select the network you have by clicking on it, and then in the lower left of the window Opened you should see a connect button, select that, you should be able to go online now if not let me know, there are some other things we can try to get you up and running just write back here if it does not work and as soon as I get this I will get back to you. I am sure its nothing we can't solve. Ok thanks bear001

Trying to conect laptop to virgin media with netgear wireless adaptor the signal is strong but could not conect windows say to contact provider provider gave me number to enter 192.168.0.1 now i am lost


The router is not connected to the internet via Virgin media.

Your computer is connected only to the router wirelessly, that is why it says contact your internet supplier on how to connect the router successfully!

Acquiring network address


all that you need to do is to delete the preferred networks list from the computer,
and try to scan and connect to the network again....make sure that you are typing the correct security key.
still if the problem exixts, then add the network manually...the problem will get off for sure....
also if there is any facility like wi-fi protected security is enabled in the wireless router, go ahead and disable it...

I would first try and reset the router, then run a Repair on the connection again.

If this doesn't work, try going into the Device Manager and removing the Wireless Device. Restart the computer and reinstall the Wireless Device drivers.

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Cant connect belkin 54g router to internet


If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Cant connect to the internet on my lap top


first thing is to identify the wireless settings of the router,you need to identify the wireless name (SSID), channel and the encryption you are getting from the airlink router. Next is to make sure that the wireless computer has enabled wireless signal/ or the wireless is on.

after that, you may connecting wirelessly to the computer, right click wireless connection and go to view available wireless networks, try to connect -input the encryption key from you wireless router or password and hit connect.

Can't get internet connection to my lap top.ps i have a desk top.


Is your laptop wireless adapter correctly configured? It may be set to only recieve certain types of signals (802.11b, when you may beed 802.11g etc), so check if the configuration of the laptop matches the configuration of the router.

To test if the laptop can get internet at all, try to get to a wired internet line (your wireless router may have some Ethernet ports on the back; laptops usually have Ethernet connectivity), just incase your laptop is set to block all internet signals coming in.

Hope this helps!

My neighbor's signal


If your neighbors know that your using their router, you might ask them to reset it. If they moved it, this could cause the weakening of the signal, walls drastically decrease a wireless signal. You might also refresh your wireless card by uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling them.
