    Since my computer stopped working I've tried to fix the problem by reinstalling the Linksys driver - at that time I followed a couple sets and it connected automatically.

    I have 2 computers attached to my modem: 1 to the USB port and 1 to the LAN port, which is attached to the router. My laptop is linked to the Linksys router. All computers worked perfectly; however after working for a couple of weeks the computer attached to the LAN port stopped working.

    Just to clarify - when you say he can't connect to the internet, do you mean that he can't connect to the outside internet after connecting to the wireless router, or that he can't collect to the wireless router at all?

If you're having problem with the wireless connection check first if your son's laptop can still detect the network of your router.
Right click on the wireless icon on the bottom right hand>click view available wireless network>if network is showing connect to it.

Hi
I presume that your internet was working fine before you bought your new laptop. Unless you've done something to change it it should still be working as before.
You shouldn't need a CD - if you think about it you don't need a CD when you log in in Starbucks so why should you need one at home?
The only thing you need to know is the router's wireless name; Talktalk 12345etc, and its password - which is the password your son is using.
I can't explain why you can't connect when your son is connected - as the router should be able to host 253 laptops (very very slowly mind) - unless the router has been set with an access list that only allows his laptop to connect.

Loss of internet connection when going through router


Your laptop seems to be hooked to your neighbours unsecured network automatically and it is going online with that. About comcast, when you connect a router to the modem or a computer to the modem, the modem has to be rebooted to give a valid IP to the connected device. If the modem is not rebooted the computer or the router will get 192.168.x.x IP address which is called private IP address.

Loose connection


  1. Update the Firmware on your router.
  2. When you lose internet, look on your modem and make sure that no lights have gone out. (i.e. Cable) If this one goes out, it is your provider.

Pc connection problems


Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
