Question about NetGear MA101 802.11b Wireless Adapter
I have a box with Windows 2000 server. When I connect to my Linksys router with WEP 64bit encryption, it connects but does not receive any data. I checked to see if I have the wrong WEP key, so I manually put in the values, and it still didn't work. It says I'm connected, but it doesn't give me a IP address, anyone know of anything?
Firstly don't encrypt your connection until it is up and running. Depending on your router, if you require it to allocate IP addresses automatically you have to make sure enable DHCP is ticked, otherwise see what the IP address of the router is e.g 192.168.2.1 and set your network TCP/IP properties to 192.168.2.2 or any last digit as long as it is not the same. This is the router IP address and not your ISP address. Lastly set up your encryption but there are two ways of sharing the connection, one is called a 'wep shared key'; the other 'wep open' so make sur your pc wireless network is sharing the same type of WEP. Hope this helps Please rate this solution.
