Now, this week, my girlfriends roomate purchased a wireless router so she could connect her laptop to it in their apartment. My girlfriend has had working cable internet from comcast for about a month and a half. I attempted to hook up this router to the desktop computer, via an ethernet cable, and again, signal is gone. Again, i spent lots of time on the phone with linksys, and again, no solution. I hooked up the laptop via the wire, and it worked just fine.
I am not that "network savvy" so please remember to speak to me as if i was a three year old. When the desktop was attempting to be hooked up, the linksys guy told me to open up IE or Firefox and type in 192.168.1.1.....nothing happens. The hourglass appears, acting like it's thinking, but it never gets anywhere. The laptop worked just fine.
Both computers (Girlfriend's and Parents)are HP Emachines. I don't know if that is the key, that there is something that I haven't done on them to make the linksys router happy. ANYONE with any ideas on a solution, i would very greatly appreciate it.
