Re: Wireless Connection Problem



fixed

Disable the security in the Linksys and see if you can connect without it.
Do all of your troubleshooting with the WPA disabled. Once it seems to
work, enable it again.

Chuck,
Do you have a cable to connect instead of wireless?
If you can that may give an indication.

What about firewalls?
When you connect, does the IP address and subnet mask match your IP address
and subnet range?

Subject: [PCTECH] Wireless Connection Problem

Hi Folks,

We moved and had Comcast Cable Internet access installed. I installed
a Linksys Wireless-G Access Point with SES and got my notebook to
connect fine. Then I go to setup my wife's and it will connect but not
do anything.

Her configuration is identical to mine:

Operating Mode is Network (Infrastructure)
Security Settings is Personal Security and WPA2-Personal (AES-CCMP)

And I'm positive the encryption key is the same since it connects.

I did an ipconfig /all on her's and there is no DHCP or DNS showing.

So I got all the IP info and changed her wireless adapter to use a
hard coded IP address, subnet mask and default gateway. I also used
public DNS servers from OpenDNS servers.

I disconnected and reconnected and still NO ability to access a
website via www or IP address.

Any ideas ?

Thanks and hope everyone is having a great weekend !

Chuck
