Disable encryption on the router and make sure you are not using MAC Address filtering.

If still unsuccessful at connecting, can you successfully connect via ethernet?

Try to connect both wirelessly and via ethernet and show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

You have the broadband modem connected to one of the LAN ports of the router. It should be connected to the WAN/Internet port of the router.

Fix that and they'll both probably connect

I connected it to the WAN/Internet port and then neither of the computers would work. The one that won't ever connect comes up with the error message: There may be a problem with your DNS Configuration. I am getting so frustrated with this cuz I can go anywhere else and get an automatic connection. Grrr

Did you power cycle (unplug for at least 30 seconds) the modem when switching to the WAN port? That is necessary.

A complete "cookbook" to connect to a cable account with a wired connection with most SOHO broadband routers.



Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on. The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.

  • Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
  • Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
  • Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
  • Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
  • Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
  • Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Thank you for your help. A gentleman came over and read your instructions and was able to get the other laptop to connect to the internet as well. Now off to the forums for my next problem
