I set up my wifi router Linkys WRT54GC (connected by cable to a PC) and Sitecom WL-130 range extender (for a laptop) about a year ago, and apart from the occasional IP conflict in the laptop it worked well. Recently, I attempted to definitively solve the IP problem. After resetting both router and range extender to the factory settings and reconfigurating them I was able to connect to the access point, but not the Internet – and I'm stuck at this point. I followed the set up guides to the letter but I just can't see what I'm doing wrong. Here are the router and range extender details:

Can the main computer use the internet or is it just a problem with client computers ?

The main PC can connect to the internet, but the laptop can't (only to the access point ie repeater/extender). Thanks for your interest....
