I am not sure of what information to put here...all I know is that while the main computer can connect to the internet because it is wired, the wireless router won't allow anything else to..or maybe it isn't the router at fault...all I know is that things like my mom and sisters BF's lap top cannot connect and neither can my PS3 even though they had before. I don't know anything specific about the lap tops but what I do know is that my PS3 has problems connecting because of DNS errors. I have tried almost everything except moving it and wiring it because my room is on the other side of the house.


What else can I say..and can I get any help? Please?

Lot's of problems like this recently. I suspect a Windows Update, but until confirmed I'd suggest the steps here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/95179/vpn-works-wired-but-not-wirelessly/

Thanks but those steps seem to be for Vista...I don't run on Vista..I'm on XP SP2....and it was working while it wasn't on SP2 and stopped while it was still not on sp2...so I don't think the SP2 had anything to do with it...

Sorry! I've got a ton of Vista related networking problems and must have Vista on the brain.

I've seen/heard of a lot of LinkSys issues recently. I'd suggest checking their support pages for similar issues.

Still, updating the router's firmware is a good idea anyways. Also, try recycling the network to see if that's an issue.

First, turn off everything - all computers, routers and modems.
Then, turn on the modem - wait 3 minutes
Then, turn on the router - wait 3 minutes
Then, turn on the PC - wait 3 minutes
Then try and connect.
