    I have no idea how you got that info. Here's what I want you to do and the results I expect.

    Go to the start menu and type command in the box. Then right-click on Command Prompt and click Run as administrator. If a User Account Control window pops up, click Continue.

    This is something like you should see. Give me these results as they appear on your screen. Here is an example:

    There should be 3 or 4 sets of numbers. Give me the list exactly as it appears like the example. The name and the number. If it doesn't come up like this let me know.

    Hi lovexx..... - is this the first time you've tried to hook up your latop to the network? Is the router protected by a WPA or WEP key?

Hey - go back to your command prompt and type this:

ipconfig /release there's a space between the g and the /

then type: ipconfig /renew same space betwen the g and the /

After you're done you can do a ipconfig and see if the numbers aew different from last time. If they are give it a try.

    That wasn't supposed to be a solution so please don't rate. Just pushed the wrong key.

    Sorry lovex....Been ill, still am. Just logged on for you. If you still need help. Try these:

    Go Start>control panel>setup and maintenance>device manager. Click on the + next to network adapters. There should be two listed. Your wired and your wireless. There should be no yellow exclamation points or red marks. Let me know if there are. Close that.

    In your search box type " control panel ". Then go to Check this computers security status. Turn off your firewall if it's on.

    Go back to your search box and type " ncpa.cpl " When you get there, you can right click on those extra adapters #6,9,12,13, etc however many you have like that and click on uninstall. Then reboot and see what happens. If it doesn't work, go to your search box and it should still have ncpa.cpl as an option or you can type it. Right click on your ethernwt connection and click on repair. Then try it. Let me know. Again sorry. Gotta lay down but I'll be watching my mail.

    Also, make sure these are set:

    Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing Center, and then clicking Manage network connections.

    Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties.

    To specify IPv4 IP address settings, do one of the following:

    To obtain IP settings automatically, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.

    To obtain a DNS server address automatically, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.

    OK. Check your settings against those of your parents for your ethernet. I think that all the options you need to check have been listed in my comments. Make sure all the settings are the same. If they're running XP some of the settings won't be in there but check the ones that are like obtain IP address automatically, obtain DNS Server automatically and so forth. If one of them are running XP, do this: On there machine with XP go to start>run and type "cmd" without the quotes and then hit ok. It will take to a C:>prompt. Type ipconfig and you'll get four lines of numbers. Write them all down. Let me know what those numbers are. Please type them because the last set was sorta hard to read.

    We're gonna fix this thing. There's something simple and I'v having a brain cramp. You can get to your side of the network but no further. Do these things please before you give up on me and let me know the results. Thanks.

    Also, what's the model # of your router and what's the Revision level? It should tell either on the back or the bottom. It will look like Rev C. While you're at it you might as well tell me what version of firmware it has. It probably will just say F/W 1.2 or whatever it is. All the info will be on one tag. Thanks.

I have two Linksys WRT-110 routers, cascaded with a cable modem feeding the internet service . My problem is that I am trying to use a media sharing program (tversity, specifically) to stream media files...

Make sure that router 1 is connected to router 2 using lets say port 4 on router 1 to port 1 on router 2 and not the wan port (the one you would normally connect to your modem) on the router. Everything else seems to be correct. Your set up is similar to what I have.

Hope this helps

How to connect to XboxLive via 1800HG 2WIRE+Linksys adaptor?

The easiest way to connect to Xbox Live without using your pc is to buy a
wireless network adapter for your Xbox.

You would then go into the system settings on the Xbox and configure the settings for your wireless network.

Xbox 360 - direct to internet - No PC.

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open

This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.

Cannot connect xbox 360 to wireless router

If you use DSL I would also check to make sure you are not being port blocked by your ISP. Some will block you if you exceed bandwidth on a particular port rather than throttling you or shutting you down entirely.

My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE

in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router

Hi i have a satellite internet provider and im trying to set up my linksys broadband router so i can hook up my xbox 360 my problem is everytime i hook it up im getting no internet connection can you tell...

there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
thank you.

Connect xbox360 and linksys wrt54g

There are several possible reasons why XBOX doesn't connec to the Internet through the router:
  • Check physical connections between XBOX and router.
  • Try different Ethernet ports on the router and use known working Ethernet cable.
  • You may also connect your XBOX directly to your modem and check if it will connect to the Internet.
  • Check the IP address that your XBOX is getting when connected to the router.
  • Take note of the error message you get from XBOX for us to know the real problem.
Hope this helps!

Opening the NAT connection for Xbox 360 working through 2 routers

  1. How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
  2. If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
  3. If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
Hope this helps!

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop

Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
