It's my first time to post a topic here, but i am not a newbie to BC.. I am Jerald, IT head in a hardware company. I want to share my problem to all you readers..
I have a desktop computer that has a internet connection, or let's say it is my server.. I am using D-Link Ethernet Broadband Router which has an IP Address 192.168.1.1. This router is not a wireless router. I bought a wireless router named Linkysys.. I configured it using Automatic Configuration -DHCP, with a router name WRT54G.. i used the D-link router ip address as it's gateway (192.168.1.1). I disabled the DHCP server.. in other words, i am using a 2 router, a non-wireless connected directly to my desktop computer and a wireless router connected to that D-LINK broadband router..I tested the connection using Windows XP laptop and by then it works.. I can connect to my wireless network and browse the internet.. On the properties of my loptop wireless network i configured it as "obatain IP address automatically and "Used the Following DNS Server' i used Preferred DNS: 188.8.131.52 and Alternate DNS: 184.108.40.206. I click on the "ADVANCED" button and add a gateway using my D-LInk router IP address 192.168.1.1. Suddenly one of our customers want to connect in our wirless network.. He is carrying a Windows Vista laptop.. I connect it to linksys wireless network but i can't connect to internet. obviously it has an X on its connection to the internet. But if i look on it's wireless connection it says IT WAS CONNECTED, and it displays EXCELLENT on it's status.. I wonder why i can't connect and browse the internet..
Please help me how to configure it, no problem with windows xp..it's on vista alone..
