    I have my main computer that the router is connected to and it works fine is has Vista. I have two other desktops in the same room I am trying to connect wirelessly with a wireless-G network adaptor on each computer. Someone set them up for me and had some trouble. He finally got them to work and now a few weeks later I am back to neither working. They try to hook-up, but it says that the internet can't be found. I think it has something to do with them both having the same type of network adapter. Any help would be appreciated

    To be able to assist you I need to know the type of Linksys device that you have. If you are using a switch you will need to enable internet connection sharing on your computers to share the internet.

You can follow the steps given by Voodoomox however based on what I see with your problem. The router may not be giving the proper addresses.
Check if your router gives the right IP.
Connect your computers to the router via ports 1 , 2 , 3 , or 4
Check the IP.
1. CLick start then run then type in CMD
2. Click ok.
3. Type in IPCONFIG if the IP comes out 192.168.1.XX on both computers then you may follow Voodoomox links from there.

If it does not reset the router.
1. Press the reset button on the back.
2. Press it in for 30 seconds let go and then pull out the power
3. Plug the power back in then check the IP. If both show 192.168.1.XX then follow the links from Voodoomox

Can not connect the Gateway GX7022E (RBGX7022E) PC Desktop. It says is connected but when you try to open explorer, it does not be able to connect but my other computer when i try they connect good

are they both connected with a 'wire' Ethernet cable, or are one or both of them using Wireless for their Network connection ?

Also ensure that IE is not set to 'work offline' (click File and note if 'work offline' has a check next to it. if it does, then un-check it.)

You connect the phone line to the router, then you connect ONE PC to the router via an Ethernet cable and configure router, after that you can remove that Ethernet connection and connect wirelessly.

Inspiron 6400 wirless connection

If the browser shows working offline and wireless is connected fine then it could be an issue where work offline is checked in the browser.
In internet explorer 6 its found on File in the menu, if work offline is already checked, check it again to remove the check mark and then try, if its internet explorer 7 its found on tools, the same steps and in firefox under file,
Also try this step as well, if its internet explorer go to tools-internet options-and in internet options-go to connections tab-there is dial up and networking box-remove the dial up connections from the box-and check the one never dial a connection

also check the firewalls and antivirus programs, post your results.

thank you

I am trying to download windows live messenger, but when i do, it says that i am working offline, even though i have connected to internet!

FYI, just because you see a page open within your Browser, that in itself doesn't mean you're connected to the internet as the page may have been cached (saved). So to verify connectivity try to navigate to another page by clicking a link in the one you're on (such as the download link that gives you the offline error) or typing in a URL to another site and verifying connectivity. Once you have established connectivity to the Internet (not just your network) then try to download Messenger from Microsoft again.
If you have verified connectivity and still get the offline message, then try downloading Messenger from another source, maybe that will help.

remove items from Dial-up and virtual private network settings
or select the option which says never dial a connection.


under connections tab

select Lan setting

check the box automatically detect settings

restart your PC
