I connect via wireless. I got my friend to have a look and he says that the router is displaying a light saying the wireless is working but there is no light for the internet signal itself. The computer is saying there is a problem with the domain name server. Any help you could give me would be much appreciated!

Re: Thanks for replying to my problem
1.Ok check that you've light for ADSL or not?
If you do have light for ADSL that mean your ADSL is working fine.
2.If ADSL light is ok bu internet light is not working that mean some wrong setup in the router
what can it be ???
only 2 possible case
1.your username,password and all require setup is not correct
2.you have to setup Domain Name Server.This is a 4 group of number like 18.104.22.168(just sample).You should ask the provider that you need to put in your router or not?? If the answer is Yes then you should ask them for this number. If the answer is NO then you've to set in your Router that you use AUTO DNS
After doing this setup..again monitor that your internet signal is up...IF yes...then its running..

Hi Sherole, Sorry for the late reply. I need some more info before i can assist you properly. Is the Netbook connected to the Wireless network via cable or you trying to connect wireless? As i see it you are trying to do a dialup via your router which you dont really need.. If you can do the following for me. Press the start button then go Control Panel and Internet Options and then go to the Tab called Connections.. In the field where it says Dailup and Virtual networks what connections are listed?
If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSL or cable modem.
Try power cycling your router while your computer is connected via wireless (even with limited or no connectivity) . Unplug the router for 15 seconds and then plug it in again. Hopefully the router will assign your computer a new IP address.
Since the computer was able to detect the wireless router, there should be no problem connecting to the internet. Please go to the computer command prompt by clicking start menu then type in to the start search bar CMD then press enter. Type at the command box ipconfig /all .
Please reply to this email reagarding all the details you will see when you do the ipconfig /all.
The router is clear (Router Setup cannot run over a wireless connection) NEVER try to setup the wireless settings trough the wireless connection on ANNY router (I'm impressed it is a verry intelligent router) a lot of routers will permit wireless setup trough wireless but obviously this one wont
Connect a CAT5 patch cable from one of the router's ethernet ports to your computer, than setup your wireless connection...
Shouldn't have to do much. I bought my daughteran ASUS Eee netbook with XP on it and it immediately connected to my wireless. Shouldn't be anything special to the settings unless you have specified these in your network settings on the router. If everything is set to default on the router, you should be able to connect with ease. I would enable WEP security on the router though.
Before going to your friends house you used to connect the laptop up via the network cable. Since youve tried your laptop on your friends wireless it no longer allows you to surf the web via the wireless nore the wired connection?
To me it sounds like a possible mis-configuration between your laptop and your linksys router. Depending on what operating system you are using you need to get into your network connection settings (usually in control panel) and either set the TCP/IP to automatically obtain ip address or set it correctly.
If you have never had to configure this in the past ensure that obtain automatically is set.
