no gateway on wireless
hey
i have wireless connection from my laptop (with a dwl-g630) to a dlink g604t which was working perfectly fine yesterday... but now today it connects to the wireless but i cant get on the net... i have figured out that it is not automatically detecting everything...

the gateway is meant to be 10.1.1.1 but its nothing now and the ip adresses are all whacked out... can anyone help me.. if u need more info i will post it here

is this an onboard nic or a pcmcia card?

in network connections, rt click on the connection.

hi lite tcp/ip, click properties and see if the button to obtain ip address automatically is checked.

i have the router obtain the ip adress automatically too.

your router is doing the auto thingy.

i never relese/renew and you have nothing to renew.

try that card in another laptop or a known working card in the questionable machine.

the cards do die.

is the card correct in device manager?

uninstall the card in device manager, reboot and install the card again and making sure in device manager that the card is correct under network adapter?

what operating system?

it depends on the router to how it's configured. it's probably in the setup page.

is it dsl or cable?
i have cable and configured the router to obtain the ip address automatically using the install cd but i don't know if dsl is different in the settings.

the ipconfig log tells me the router is auto configured.

IP addresses of 0.0.0.0 usually indicate either a duplicate IP address detected, defective hardware, or driver problems.

Have you tried just shutting everything down?

Shutdown ALL the computers, power down the router and modem for about 5 mins., (unplug the router and modem if they don't have a on/off switch).

Power up in this order, Modem - wait about two mins. minimal for it to stabilize, power up router - wait about two mins. minimal for it to stabilize, boot up your PC's one at a time allowing enough time for it to acquire a connection before booting up the next one.
