Just got my son a new Gateway Netbook (LT2811u) with Windows 7 Starter. For some reason it will find my Linksys router in the house, but it keeps saying no internet connection. Not sure what to make of it, as I have my work PC, and 4 Macs in the house, all connect perfectly.

I've tried to run diagnostics, but nothing. Keeps saying its a router problem, but that can't be.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Sign into the router. Make sure that enough addresses are available and that no limit lower than you need has been set on how many devices can connect.

Look through all the settings to see if they make sense.

Are you using a static IP or auto?

Ieas finally able to get on for a short time after reinstalling all software. It just went back to no internet problem. I believe I'm runnung a dynamic IP address, and here should be plenty of addresses from which to choose.

The router may have a setting to limit the number of connections. It could be set to 5 or 6 or something. Does it make any difference if all the other machines are offline?

Can you post the results of the command:

ipconfig /all

?
