    Have this problem with my upstairs winxp desktop w/Linksys wireless adapter USB). Can't renew IP address, but great connection. (Limited or no Connectivity)

    All computers, one hard wired and two wireless, have worked together until this event.

    My downstairs laptop (Toshiba, built in wireless) picks up wireless just fine. As does the hardwired PC. (plugged into the router directly)

    My business laptop, when it was here recently, also couldn't log on to the wireless network. (built in wireless)

    So, the wireless signal is there, but only supporting one IP address???

    I thought it could be my adapter upstairs, but why wouldn't another computer not work on the system?

    I have removed and reinstalled USB Linsys drivers. Unplugged router, adapter, rebooted, troubleshot with Windows..

    This is an older model..of wireless router 2004ish

    Linksys wants 30.00 to troubleshoot and they can't really understand me!! It took 5 minutes for the guy to give me a case number when he should have had it in 30 seconds...

    Thanks!!

If your PC is running XP, download this little program, and then run it, you will have to reboot, but it sorts about 85% of DHCP assigned IP address issues in one step

I cant get my ne10 to connect to wifi


Try to reboot BOTH devices, remove power from Both devices and reboot. I'm not sure what a ne10 is? The "aquiring network adress" is it's try to aquire the IP address. If you power everthing down it should reset everything. You question isn't very clear. I don't know what "IT' is? "when i try to connect "it" to my web cube "it" just says aquiring network adress how do i get "it" to work properly please"?

Says i am connected but when i open firefox it says that i have no network connection... the wireless icon also says it is acquiring ip address


if the message aquiring ip address comes in computer then it says that the wireless router is not giving an ip address to your computer.... check if any static ip address is assigned to your wireless connection...if so change to "obtain ip address automatically".... right click on wireless network name> goto properties > authentication tab> uncheck "enable IEE athentication"
now try to connect again,still not restart the computer once...... this will resolve the issue.... still if it is not connected then check for the security settings in the router... if your computer is XP/MAC, it may not recognize WPA security type.... change it to WEP type and try to connect again....

Linksys router connects and says it has an excellent signal but will not aquire an address please help


Try a hardwire computer and get into the setup page of the router by typing 192.168.1.1 on your browser . Make sure you have changed the SSID or the network name of your router to your choice. Check if you have security set. If you have one make sure they match your computer.

Laptop can't aquire IP address


This sounds to be a compatibility issue with either the wireless software or wireless card. Check to see if there are any updated drivers for the wireless card at IBM's support site. If there aren't any or the card still doesn't work after the updated drivers are installed, then you might try a different/newer internal wireless card, or a universal external wireless card for use with your home system.

Setup


If that is the report that the laptop gives for an IP address, then you have to change the IP address settings.
Go into your network settings, and tell it to automatically aquire an address, and DNS.
Once you click OK, it should sense the DCHP from the router.
If the IP is already set to automatically aquire, then the router needs to be reset to factory defaults. That should put you back to the 192.168.2.xxx settings.

Can't connect to internet


It sounds like the driver for the USB network device is not loaded correctly. So, you'll need to reinstall it from scratch. Unplug everything, install the software, then reattach the usb cable to the PC.

The other thing is, did you DISABLE the network adapter that was already in your PC when you added the USB network adapter? If not, you need to do that. If they are both active but only one is connected, the system could still be trying to use the other network adapter and tying up the resources in the process.

Acquiring ip address


you may need to set a key on your router and PC (recommended for security anyway). Access your router with your internet browser (default is often 192.168.0.1 - listed in your manual) and get the long default key. Put this key into your wireless card set up and reboot.
