I'm trying to help my father-in-law - love my wife so would like to keep him happy!

Home wireless network around Linksys WRT54G router connected to Embarq DSL here in OBX, N.C. Have security set as WPA Personal. Main computer (Dell) hardwired to router. Three wireless connections: Dell laptop (works fine - using it now for this); iPod touch 2G - works fine throughout the house; father-in-laws laptop is the problem. HP Pavilion ze4400 using a Linksys WPC54g ver 2 PC Card modem. Modem can find the access point fine sometimes and then others requires a little jiggle before Linksys Network Monitor software registers access point. Regardless, the Linksys software "can't find the Internet". Have Linksys software running connection. Everyone else can find and use the internet without a problem which seems to narrow the issue to the HP. Any suggestions?

I am having a similar problem with a Gateway T1616 laptop. Had wireless connection through usb RealTek. Computer can not assign an IP address automatically so I reconfigured TCP to assign IP address of 192.168.1.10 and subnet of 255.255.255.0. Computer now recognizes network and logs in properly but I have no Internet. CMD ipconfig shows no gateway. Have three computers on the network. Main computer (one I'm using here) is hardwired into the router. #2 is wirelessly connected without problem. My laptop is the problem child. Security set WEP 64 Bit. Laptop will logon to the Internet when hard wired to the network. I'm baffled! Running XP Pro with Service Pack 3 on all three computers. Have tried all of the following: CMD / regsvr32 actxprxy.dll; shdocvw.dll; mshtml.dll; msjava.dll; shell32.dll with no results. Same results with IE and FireFox. No Skype or Messenger service either.

Open a cmd prompt and type the following without the quotes and paste the results back here; "ipconfig /all". When you typed in the ip address manually did you also enter a default gateway and DNS address?

shopbruce.....start your own thread

Retirednow - stop helping shopbruce hijack pogamahone1's thread lol


pogamahone1 - When I have an issue with my wireless the first thing I do is the latest drivers, uninstall from device manager, uninstall any software from add/remove, reboot and install new software. Most times this clears up any issues.

Let us know

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
