the kids pc downstairs is hooked up using a 802.11g wireless lan mini usb adapter which then connects to a wireless-g adsl router upstairs.
the kids pc is win me.
the installed software (zydas ieee 802.11g) works fine and the correct lights are lit on both the adapter and the router.
however the pc won't connect to the internet.
ie just keeps flickering as if trying to connect but it can't and eventually gives up.
the router is dhcp enabled.
i don't get why they are connected but the pc can't use the internet.
i have tesco broadband adsl

the computer that wont connect
1 does it have a firewall running
2 go to control panel network connection right click connection then click status then support
is it giving you an ip address subnet mask and
should look something like this
Address type assigned by DHCP
IP Address 192.168.1.100
sub Net mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.1
your ip's may be different
the pc doesn't have a firewall..not that i'm aware of. it did have some security software on ther but i got rid cause the kids mess it up all the time!
can't do step 2 like that...this is win me.
the network icon in control panel gives me network settings.
one is tcp/ip zydas usb. the other tcp/ip is for the other onboard network adaptor which i have now disabled just incase but it's made no difference.
if i type winipcfg in command prompt i get this:
ip address 169.254.126.207
subnet mask 255.255.0.0
no default gateway
ok figured something out.
i think i'm a tad daft
i think i tried to post too much info
even though it's 4500 characters max i guess that includes empty spaces too.
not just what you type
anyway have continued to post on origional thread now
sorry for wasting anyone's time
not that i got a reply
