Well here's my problem I have a wireless router hooked up to 3 pc's in my house I can get onto the internet on the pc downstairs but not the 2 upstairs. they all shair the same network. I've tried restarting the router and that didn't do anything. I was browsing the internet upstairs when all a sudden the computer shutdown instantly. I log back on and can't get back onto the internet it says i'm connected tho and same with the other computer upstairs. When I look at the router it shows the three green lights all flashing when I try to start internet up. sometimes the lights are really dull sometimes they are bright. and the computers are shair the same network. I need help :(
Are you in Windows?
Click start then click RUN
Type cmd in the box and press Enter
Type ipconfig /all press Enter This should show your network settings.
Type ipconfig /release press enter you should see 0.0.0.0 as address.
Type ipconfig /renew press enter this should force the computer to get a new ip address from your router.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

when sharing internet connection, it's all about sequence when turning it on... Sequence in regard to what's turned on first, second etc... Here's the solution: 1. Turn everything off... modem, router...computers etc.. 2. Turn on the wireless router FIRST and let it boot up. 3. Then turn on the modem and let it cycle up... This allows your modem to lock onto the wifi router. 4. Turn everything else back on... You should be good to go without drop outs...
If the power goes out, simply follow this sequence... It's all about the sequence!!
The cable internet is not "seeing" the computer. The router is blocking it. That is why it works if you plug it into the modem directly. How to solve this is to turn everything off and unplug power to modems and routers for 3-5 minutes. Then replug in routers. Then restart computers.
That is why it worked at the computer store. Everything was shut down and restarted.
Also, sometimes it is necessary to call the ISP (for example Comcast) and have them re-send the signal. Also going to Control Panel Network Connections and choose "repair the connection" will reset the signal. Be patient it will work.
How far are you running the CAT5 cables from house to house? CAT5e only has a solid range of about 150ft, and anything near 100ft is pushing it. You may also need to use CROSSOVER cables when plugging routers into other routers.
Also, who has the actual internet connection? I'm assuming House 2 does. One big problem is a router is your Gateway address. And, if house 2 is the only one with a valid Internet connection (via DSL or Cable, etc), then the router in house 2 is the only "true gateway". And, all 3 houses need to be in the same physical network (i.e. 192.168.1.0 range or whatever), and all computers should have the same Gateway address...which would be the IP address of the router in House 2.
What you really need in this situation is 1 router and 2 switches. Put the router in House 2 and put switches in House 1 and 3. That would be the best way to handle this problem. It would also end your connectivity problems.
First of all, are you connecting with a PC or a Notebook?
If you have the Linksys router, you should replace the MS utility with the Linksys utility it figures your linksys wireless lan card There are programs you can use to keep track of your router and connections...One such program is called Port Mapper...
Does your problem happen everday...or every 3 weeks...are you doing anything in particular when you are getting the inability to use the connection? There is a new Vista patch out there I recommend downloading.
You shouldn't have to run the setup wizard to reconnect. It sounds like you just haven't configured it to auto-connect to that wireless connection. Right click on My Network Places and select Properties. Right click on your Wireless LAN connection, and tell it to connect. You should be able to go through those settings and tell it to auto-connect to your router as well.
a router shouldnt need to dial for a connection, go to open your internet browser and go to tools, then internet options, then click connections tab and select never dial a connection so as to stop internet explorer looking for a modem connection
Ah, you can no longer use the modem or the Blitzz screen to connect to your Internet connection. You'll need to patch another Ethernet cord from the router to your Ethernet port on your computer and it should automatically connect.
If you still get prompted to dial, open up Internet Explorer and ignore any prompts to dial and then click Tools, then Internet Options, then click the Connections tab at the top, then click the selection to Never Dial a Connection. Confirm your choice by clicking OK and then try browsing the Internet like usual.
