Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
Hi. I'm just a computer illiterate dad trying to help the kids. We have a wireless -G router. Have had it connected for about a year.I am running to a laptop and two desktops. A fewdays ago the kids said they have no internet. But I do have it with the laptop. What are the chances that there is a problem with my internet server and my laptop just picking up the signal from my neighbors house? And if so any troubleshooting remedies to try. thanks Tony
Hi Tony, you think your laptop is connecting to your neighbor's wireless network. So try this.
1:Go to Control Panel, click on network and internet connections, double click NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Point your mouse to the WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS. It should show that you are connected(and it will show the name of the network that you are connected to). If you do not recognize the name of the network that you are connected to then you are connected to your neighbor's network.
IF YOU ARE CONNECTED TO linksys--unsecured wireless network, there is a chance that your wireless router is not functioning at the moment.
Try this first and i will be waiting if you have a follow up problem.
