Can't get wireless to work on laptop

Recently we bought a wireless router. I installed it and both of our laptops worked fine (1 Mac and 1 PC) The other day the PC was not getting an internet connection wirelessly. I put the hard line from the router into the PC and it has internet. But when I remove the hard line I cannot get internet wirelessly. When I pull up the "connect" it shows that the wireless is connected, but no internet. How can I get the wireless to work again?

    It is difficult to help you without your naming the exact Windows OS you are using...xp, Vista, Windows 7? You might also make mention of whether you know how to use the automatic repair functions of your system and whether or not you have tried them. Best Wishes

    It is a Vista OS. I have tried all of the normal stuff like turning off modem and router. It shows that it has a connection to the wireless router but does not make the complete connection. I would think it has something to do with the IP address.

You must confirm that : your laptop has a wireless card and install the wireless card driver. Your laptop wireless is open
1. open the modem Wireless capabilities ( input 192.168.1.1 in IE to open the modem wireless)2. reboot the laptop and modem 3. open the wireless to see you can search the wireless network or not.

You may use the System restore utility on windows by going to all programs then Accessories... Open system Tools and then System Restore. You may resotre your system to an earlier time, time when you are still able to connect to your router wirelessly.

I purchased a SBG901 and have connected 2 MAC pc's wireless - 1 HP printer and 1 Compag laptop, I have one more pc which is running Vista on a HP Pavilion dv5 and visited the HP website to update


It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.

Printer not working from new router


First, I would suspect your PC has the printer installed using the IP address of the printer. I would uninstall the printer, then go to "add printer" then "add network printer" and see if this works. If not: HP has a neat setup available for their printers. Go to their website and look for network printer setup. This will install on your computer, and go through your network and find your printer.

Macbook 13.3" won't log in to wireless


You need to check your network card software your problem may lay there. I've seen this problem many times in the passed. I will install a wireless network card or software on someones computer and two days later it will not connect everything looks fine. No matter what I do it will not connect. Remove net software for the card or on board wireless reinstall and boom it works fine.
routers may need reset or configured off the internet or the start up cd. I take this a wireless router hooked to internet gateway. don't know not enough information you may need to tell me a little more. first try install of net-card software then set you working router to unsecure no pass word need see if you connect then change it to you wpa password protected.
