Your Router might be locked on your laptop, try this,
1. Unplug the power cord from the wireless router
2. Wait 10 seconds.
3. Plug the router back in.
hope this helps

Have you checked to make sure your internet is connected through your router, and DHCP is turned on. Sounds like you may have internet connection sharring setup through your desktop and it is acting as the dhcp server

I got a linksys router and no disk and i got a wireless laptop and the lights when come on the router but no connection


Try a reset on the router.

You should also setup the router for wireless security as well. Therefore your the only one with the password to use your wireless connection. So no one near your place can steal and use your wireless Internet connection.

Also changing your SSID is a good idea.

Wireless ADSL setup for WIN ME


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.
