Hey guys,
yet again i am on here with another problem.

so last night, a wired connection was working on my laptop, and when i wanted to go wireless, i turned the wireless switch on, and my computer was unable to identify the network, so i had local only. so i boot up this morning, and i my laptop is unable to identify either connection. so i grab the 2 laptop we have (same make, and model) and that one has a wireless connection. so i had to manually put in the network IP's onto this laptop, and now i have a wireless connection.

but when i try to go wired on the other laptop, it is unable to identify the network, it usually says linksys (when wired). so now i think the problem is with router, what do i need to do, so the computers can identify the network.

the router is linksys is wireless-B 2.4 GHz.

Thanks

sounds like a dchp issue

BUT

you have three machines

can you list out which one work OK

also post an ipconfig /all for them and label them so we know which is which

ipconfig /all

TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

ONE ---------------------------------
start
run
cmd
ipconfig /all

rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

TWO -----------------------------------------------

Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.
