    I've just installed the WRT160N wireless router. My MacbookPro picked up the signal just fine, but my Dell XP desktop won't connect. Do I need to change the IP address on the Dell? Can I find it on the Mac somewhere? Or is there anywhere I can look on the local area connection PC? Thanks.

    the message is coming from your pc, it means that its not getting a connection. You must give more information. Brand and model of your modem, how your computer is connected to your modem, how many computers are connected to the modem.

If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probablydid not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.

If i turn my Thomson 585v7 modem off and back on it dosent change my ip and im sure i dont have a static ip

Depending on you ISP (Internet Service Provider) it may assign you a DHCP address with a certain amount lease time. in other words when your modem requests an IP to connect to the web your ISP says 'OK here use this one for this long'. When that time limit is reached it will request a new address at which point may then get a new one or it might just re-new the current one you have.

Typically your can log into your modems web interface and find a menu that will show the current status of your modem and somewhere on that page should be a release/renew button that you can click to force the modem to let go of its current IP address and request a new one. Again it might just give you the same address you just released back to you though.

Having the same IP address is not really a bad thing.

Hope that helps clear it up.

Is the router setup as a DHCP server, you'll have to login to it to check its settings. Then on your laptop, in Network Connections, for either the ethernet or wireless connetion make sure the TCP/IP settings are set to "Obtain and IP address automatically"

The router has #3 link/act lighted up (LAN) and when i connect to internet with router it says limited connectivity, but internet works fine with modem?

I assume you are getting this on your wireless connection.
Sometime you get this message because the computer's wireless card didn't get a issued with an IP address from the wireless router when you opened the browser. This can occur when you power up both the computer and the router at the same time, but the router had not finished booting up in time to issue an IP address to the computer.
You can right click on the wireless icon on the Task Bar and then click Repair, this will force the wireless router to issue a new IP address to the wireless card. When the wireless card gets an IP address then you can access the Internet.

New mini computer says"acquiring network address" shows contected to netgear but won't access the internet

It means your router dhcp is not running proeprly.
You can set ip addreses manually.

for that go to my network places proeprty then you see your network adapter right click on it then go t oit's property then tcp ip .
Set ip addreses , subnet mask and gateway.

set your ip addreses if your router ip is then you can set your computer ip is
subnetmask as
and set gateway as your router ip means

you can access your router with default link

type user name a s"admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"

then check its ip and settings.

Connect to internet but limited or no

You mean ip. That is a LAN IP and is correct if you are connected to a router.

You probably have a cable modem connected to it. These modems lock to the mac address of the PC or Device that was initially connected when service was setup. You need to reset the cable modem. There should be a pinhole somewhere on the modem with a reset button in it. find it. reset modem with a object that fits into it. The modem will shutoff and restart. After this is done you should have access again. Hope this helps ya

Hi .
First who is your service provider?
Can you connect to the internet if you directly hook your modem to your computer.
1>If so connect your Modem to your router on the colour code slot on the router which says modem
2>Connect a cable from the router to your computer
3>The lan light on the router should be turned on
4>Check wether your lan says connected . To check that click start-> control pannel -> network connections

Click start ->run -> cmd->ipconfig

8>If so type ipconfig/release
9>It shoul say ip address:
10>Type ipconfig/renew on command promt
12>Disable and enable lan
