Re: adding additional computer problem
IP routing should not be enabled on the Win 2000 machine. If DHCP is not enabled, then you should either enable it or manually assign a usable IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
If you already understand IP addressing, you can just ignore the rest of my rather long post...otherwise, this procedure should be helpful in making sure your Win 2000 machine is set up correctly to use your router.
If DHCP is not used, the manually configured IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway of the Win 2000 machine must meet these requirements:
-IP ADDRESS ...in the same logical address block as the address on the router. -DEFAULT GATEWAY ...the same as the router address. -SUBNET MASK ...the same as the router subnet mask
To find the address and subnet mask of the router, simply use the ipconfig /all command on your working Win XP computer. The default gateway and subnet mask are the same as the router and you should use them on the Win 2000 machine.
I'll suggest a way to select a usable IP address...but this procedure assumes your subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. Let me know if your subnet mask is different from this and I'll modify this procedure as needed....
First, write down the default gateway address from your Win XP machine. Next, write down the IP address of your Win XP machine. The first three "octets" of these addresses should be the same....for example: 192.168.0. The last octet is in the range of 1-254, but you must avoid duplicate addresses, so the last number in the Win 2000 ip address will need to be something other than the the numbers you wrote down.
EXAMPLE: If the router(gateway) address is 192.168.1.1 and the Win XP address is 192.168.1.100, then you could safely use 192.168.1.221 for the address on the Win 2000 machine. The most important thing here is that the first three octets (numbers) in these addresses must be identical.
Let me know if you need assistance with applying these settings to the network connection in your Win 2000 machine. Good luck...and hope this is helpful.
Yes, the xp machine connects to the net. DHCP is not enabled. The ipconfig/all command brings up the correct static ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. But it does also say under the ip configuration that ip routing is not enabled. I did have the 2000 machine connected when I first set up the router yesterday, but I booted up my laptop to try to set up a wireless connection, and then I had to reinstall the entire router set-up.

Do You have an association button on Your router? If so, the firstly press the button and then try to connect. If not, You must enter
IP address of Your computer, like 192.168.0.5
Subnet mask, like 255.255.255.0
IP address of router, like 192.168.0.1
Then, most important - default gateway. If You have another computer connected at the same router, run cmd, then ipconfig in the black MS DOS window that appears after cdm command. Here You can see all parameters of Your TCP/IP configuration. Take a note of the default gateway and put it to TCP/IP settings of Your Linksys device. If it not help, drop me a message.
Did you install the Linksys WLAN monitor to manage the wireless settings? If not, I'm afraid that you won't be able to configure the wireless settings on your 2000 computer without the Linksys WLAN monitor installed.
Go to Start>control panel> Network and internet> network connections > right click on wireless network > select 'view available wireless networks' and select your home network and click connect. If it asks for a password i guess u have it or if u dont have then go to Internet Explorerand and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, it will ask for a username and a password, type admin as username and the same for password. it will take you to the lynksys page....then select wireless and click wireless security, it will show you the wireless password.......
If u have windows vista :
Click Start > go to 'connect to' > select the wireless network you want to connect to and the rest is the same as windows xp....
Since you are unable to go via wireless, follow these steps:
1) Access your router configuration pages by typing in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser. 2) Click the tab that says Wireless. 3) Make sure the wireless broadcast option is enabled. If it isn't, enable it and select save settings. 4) Set up the wireless network through your Vista PC by going to Start > Network. 5) At the top of the window, select add a wireless device. Follow the onscreen instructions to add your Linksys Wireless Access Point. 6) Once added, right click on Wireless-G Router (name varies) and select configure. Follow the onscreen instructions to configure your router. (You can find your router pin by following steps 1-2 and selecting Wi-Fi Protected Set up.) 7) Once completed, attempt to connect to the internet via wireless router.
Did you use the setup adviser to add another computer? Linksys has the step by step with photo's for adding more machines to the router, and if your other machine is wireless but has a ethernet connection also you can plug it in and set it up that way.
You can try using the WZC (wireless zero configuration) utility instead of the linksys utility. Just right click the icon and select "use windows to configure my wireless settings".
You can also check for wireless interfence that could be blocking the connection of your wireless computer to the router. Try changing the channel of the router and make sure that the wireless settings are personalized.
If all those failed, you can try updating the driver on your wireless adapter and the router's firmware.
If you have any other problems, just click on ask me and ill answer it as soon as I can.
Do you have your wireless on in the computer. I need more info, you should be able to go into your network setting and enable your wireless there, or in the control panel also under wireless networks, Try that and if it don't work give some more info plz. Thanks
