I'm having some wireless problems, first off, is this the correct forum for this question?
Sure, give it a shot, we'll try to help you as best we can.
Allright let me spill it all out
I have a toshiba satellite A15-S129 laptop and I can't get my Linksys wireless.g card to work. It connects to the wireless router but won't allow interconnectivity! if i plug it into the router everything works well. My linksys server says I am connected to the access point but the internet cannot be found.
I am pretty sure I set the thing up ok. All the hardwired ports conect to the net ok.
do you have any encryption or other security features turned on?
let me get back to you on that
yes 128 wep
You need to add the passphrase or hex value when you connect to the AP. If you forgot what they are log on to the router through a cable connection and copy it down.
Also IMO 128 wep doesn't offer any big improvement over 64 bit, but it does slow down your connection more.
if ur just worried about people not getting on ur wireless rather then security you could just apply mac address filtering
do you have an open network or password protected?
Thanks for the info, I am sick of messing around with something that should be easy. I am taking the access point and wireless card back to the store.
Setting it up is easy, setting it up securely is a different story.
