There is no way for two computers to have the same ip addresses. Try to check that laptop's ip address by clicking on START then type CMD on the search bar which will pull up command prompt then type "ipconfig" press ENTER it will give you lists of addresses like ip address, default gateway, etc...
Now, if the ip address shows 169.254.X.X it means that it is not getting any signal OR worse case scenario is, the network card is defective BUT!! if your computer is getting an ip address other than 169.254.X.X then it means that it just needs a little configuration...

>hope it helps... ?

You need to do exactly that.

From your web browser type in 192.168.0.1 put in you user name and password.

Your control panel will come up then you got to wireless settings and turn it on and set a Wep key, write that down then rebboot the router or save the settings.

go to your lappy now and open up your wireless card on the tak bar and search for your netgear click on it then enter that key, You should be good.

Connection problem


The first thing to check is that both of your computers are assigned to the same workgroup name. Right click 'my computer' and select properties. Change the workgroup name so that they are identical on both machines. You will need to reboot if you change the name one one or both of the machines.

I can't remember exactly what my password is.


try this:

open up a web browser then type in one of the following addresses...just the numbers ie no "www." an ".com"

192.168.1.1 (this is probably it)
192.168.2.1
192.168.0.1

once you get to the routers page, just go into admin mode. You will be prompted for a user name(=admin) and a password(="password"). that should allow you to see what you have your password set as. Hope this helps.

If this helps please rate this as a fixya or helpful.

Cannot install D-Link router


You may try typing admin on the username field. Just leave the password field empty.

Once you're in the setup page, click on WIRELESS tab which on the left side of the page. On the Wireless page, you will see the wireless settings set in the router. You may also enable the wireless security on that page if there is not security enabled yet.

Please check this for your reference http://support.dlink.com/Emulators/di524/h_wireless.html

Hope this helps!

Hooking up a lap top to a router


You didn't specify if he has DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.
