The "Local Are Network" icon in Network connections says "Network connection unplugged," and the "status" link is dehighlighted and can't be selected. Under the TCPIP properties, it does not show any IP assigned. So it seems to not be connected.
The function of the wireless bridge that I'm installing is to pick up wireless networks that are transmitting within it's range. It is supposed to connect and assigns and IP address for my PC.
When all is hooked up between the bridge and my PC, the lights on the wireless bridge are blinking "ready." My understanding is that there is no real setup procedure for the bridge, and that once connected via the ethernet port on my PC, it should show a local area network.
While it is hooked up, there is a regular continual flashing of the LED indicators on the NIC (about once per second, yellow and orange). I tried to get info off the net of what that flashing sequence means, but can't find anything. I was thinking that it could point me to the problem. Does anyone have ideas?
