Cant Aquire IP Address Wirelessly

Hi My freind came to visit me and he sat in his car while he waited for me and tried to connect to my router. He is able to see the router but cant aquire a IP Adress. He had the correct WEP Encryption key entered and we even tried a diffrent key with just all 1's and he still cant get a IP adress. He has been able to connect just fine in the past. I have check all settings and they seem fine I dont think I have changed any major setting since he last connected except a few firewall exceptions. Those would be to allow Limewire to connect to the net. The only block I see in the fire wall is Deny LAN,* WAN,* *,3711
Could this be causing this. He knows his networking and his laptop was connected to his router shortly before this and he knows its not his laptop. I hope someone can help the only other thing I can think is reseting the router to default but I dont want to if not needed as I do want to have to go through setting every thing again. also I did unplug and reset the router and that did not help ethier

Try this... connect the laptop directly to the router using a cable. get into the router interface and disable the wep security. Once it is disabled try connecting the laptop. your computer will ask you that network is not secured and ask if you want to connect anyway. just connect your laptop without the WEP key, if it connects, just go ahead and enable the security again. hope this helps.

Linksys router connects and says it has an excellent signal but will not aquire an address please help


Try a hardwire computer and get into the setup page of the router by typing 192.168.1.1 on your browser . Make sure you have changed the SSID or the network name of your router to your choice. Check if you have security set. If you have one make sure they match your computer.

Hi i have a lexmark all in one printer,recently i changed my router and now cant connect the printer wirelessly to the computer!


You will have to reconfigure the printer with the router and then reconfigure the PC. All routers don't have the IP address range. That might be the reason why it isnt working after changing the router. Also, if you were using the printer wirelessly, the SSID (network name) and the wireless security needs to be reconfigured to match your new router. The simplest way to achieve this would be to connect the printer hard wired to the router; uninstall the printer drivers completely from the PC; and run the setup disk again. The setup will walk you through the whole process.

Please get in touch if you need further clarifications.

Cannot aquire ip address from wireless router


Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it. Good Luck.

Can only connect 1 computer to router


You might need to check if your laptop is able to get a valid IP address when connected wirelessly to the router. You can go to the Control Panel then click on network connections and look for wireless network connection. Right click the wireless network connection then click properties. Click the support tab and there you will see the IP address. You should not be getting 169.254.x.x. Where X represents numbers.


An IP address is very important. Make sure you're getting a correct IP address and it should be the IP address provided by your router. Without a valid IP address, you won't be able to get onlinwe. Your wireless connection can tell you that its connected eventhough its not getting a valid IP address.

Cant chat to 1 of my freinds on xbox live


What is their internet connection speed?

Your friend may not have port forwarding on their home network and the network router filters the Internet NAT redirection...

Setting up a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) on the router for the Xbox gives it unrestricted access to the internet; also puts your Xbox outside you routers firewall.

DMZ ports have to be programmed manually and the IP address also must be manually entered; The DHCP Automatic IP address puts the Xbox back behind the firewall; just duplicate the automatic DNS Server settings and the Netmask. Then choose a IP address outside the Automatic IP range (e.g. 192.168.1.175)

If that does resolve the issue see if the other Xbox needs a Live Update.

If that is the report that the laptop gives for an IP address, then you have to change the IP address settings.
Go into your network settings, and tell it to automatically aquire an address, and DNS.
Once you click OK, it should sense the DCHP from the router.
If the IP is already set to automatically aquire, then the router needs to be reset to factory defaults. That should put you back to the 192.168.2.xxx settings.
