Question about NetGear WGR614 Router
I can successfully connect the computer to the router with an ethernet cable. I can get the configuration pages for the router and I can get the internet too. However, when I try to switch to a wireless connection I hit trouble. The PC detects the NETGEAR wireless network but fails to connect to it. When I click "connect", it reports "Limited or no connectivity. ... This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer." I am then unable to access either the internet or the router configuration page (192.168.0.1). While trying to fix this I have encryption turned off and have also turned off the option to restrict access to specified computers. (Obviously I will put these options back, for security, when the network is fixed.) I am using the router in conjunction with a Wanadoo "Livebox" modem. As I say, I have been able to make a connection using ethernet cable, but not wirelessly. Thanks in advance for any help.
As ever starting with the simplest of solutions normally works, well spotted.

NOTE: It is
advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4)
ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have
successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the
Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to
have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect
the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.
Check if the corresponding LEDs on the router are lit. For instructions, click here.
