Ok here is what is happening. My school recently all received laptops. Everyone in the school gets one. Well i wanted to get wireless internet at my house so i went out and bought a lynksys broadband router. I set it up and everything and it seems to work. Well when i go on my laptop the connection shows up and i click connect to it. It connects just fine. It says connection is strong and the speed is 54mbps. Well when i try to access the internet it just says "the page cannott be displayed." My friend is also having the exact same problem at his house. I heard somewhere that i had to go to lan settings and uncheck the box next to: use a proxy server... blah blah blah. Well i tried that and it still did not work. Does anybody know what is going on. My computer is connected but the internet cannot be accessed. Please help
I prefer using a proxy server it prohibits unauthorized use. What kind of internet connection are you using your provider may have supplied an installation Disc that would help with the installation and connection of the service. If you have done this.
From the cable box to the router you want to be in the wan port unless you are using a twisted Cat5 cable.
