I'll assume you're using Windows XP with DHCP enabled and you're working with a new router that has not previously been configured. Please let me know if my assumptions are incorrect.

Try this:
- If you have installed Linksys software on your computer...uninstall it before using the rest of this procedure.
- Begin by shutting off the computer and the router
- Connect a Cat 5 ethernet cable from the network connection on your computer to one of the numbered ports on the router. Port 1 would be a good choice.
- Turn on the router and wait about 1 minute
- Turn on the computer and wait about 2 minutes after it boots up
- Click on Start>Run>...type "cmd" in the text box...>Ok
- The black command prompt window should appear
- Type "ipconfig" at the prompt and press enter...this will list your computer's IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway
- If the ip address begins with 192.168.... things are looking good! If the address is blank or begins with 169, your computer is not talking to the router through the cable.
- Assuming "things are looking good" in the previous step, make a note of the default gateway address. It will typically be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.100....or something like that. This is the address of your router.
- Start Internet Explorer and type the router address into the address bar....for example, if the default gateway was 192.168.1.1, then type "http://192.168.1.1" into the address bar of your browser.
- The router setup screen should appear...beginning with a login window. The username is usually "admin" and password "admin". If that doesn't work try leaving the password blank on the next attempt.
- Once you see the router setup screen you can proceed with configuring the router
to meet your needs. Use the instructions that came with your router (on disc?) as a
guide.
-I hope this is helpful....let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.

The first thing to check is that both of your computers are assigned to the same workgroup name. Right click 'my computer' and select properties. Change the workgroup name so that they are identical on both machines. You will need to reboot if you change the name one one or both of the machines.

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!

Laptop


the internet cable should be connected to the "Internet" or "WAN" port on the router. Your PC should be connected to one of the regular ports on the back of the router and your laptop can be connected just like the pc, or it can connect wirelessly.

Then you should be able to see the internet from your laptop.
