please help me , my wireless router is fucked up
    #3330746 - 11/07/04 08:04 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

okay heres the situation, i just moved into my new appartment, and the previous roommate didnt pay the cable bill so the internet got turned off, before that d's and the old roomate's wireless connections were working just fine.
as of now im borrowing one of the 3 other wireless connections in the area.

anyhow, we got the internet back today, and one of my roomates (m) who is wired in with a cat 5 cable can acess the internet fine. my wireless card will pick up our local netowrk just fine with a very strong signal, but i cannot acess the internet through it. and my other roomate (d) with a wirless card on his laptop has the same problem as me.

any ideas on why this is happeneng? were running on a wireless g 2.4 ghz and we can acess the internet through everyone elses un-encrypted networks

To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

Could be a number of things.

1. Make sure the wireless nic is being associated to your new router/access point.
2. Make sure you obtain an internal ip address (eg. 192.168.X.XXX)
3. Make sure encryption settings are off or all computers are configured with the correct key.
4. Make sure that the mac wireless filter isn't on.
5. Make sure microwaves or cordless phones aren't affecting the performance of the router.

If all else fails, reboot all computers, highspeed modem and the router and configure the router first, then turning on the computers one at a time to make sure everything's working.

Sounds like your WEP (wireless encryption protocol?).

Go to win xp wireless options and make sure you specify the preferred network as well as the WEP in options. Then go to accessories and "dos prompt", then type "/ipconfig renew_all".

Also try unplugging everything, then plug in the modem, then the wirless router...finally turn your computers on.
