I have two computers: a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with wireless capability, and an old Gateway desktop. Both are running Windows XP. I have a Linksys cable modem connected to a Linksys WRT54G router which is connected to the desktop PC.
This setup was working fine, and Internet connectivity was trouble-free until one day I was not able to access the Internet on either the desktop or the laptop. I AM able to access the Internet on the desktop if I connect directly to the cable modem, so I know my cable connection is ok. On the laptop, I cannot connect to the Internet even when I connect directly to the cable modem. The error message on the desktop is "Limited or no connectivity" when I try to connect through the router. The laptop is not giving me an error message: getting a strong signal from the router, and says network adapter is fine.
I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting the connections with no results, linksys call center was no help. I purchased a new router, a Netgear WGR614, but still got the same results, so I'm back to using the linksys. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers on the laptop to no avail.
Don't know what else to try -baffled by the problems with both computers when the router seems to be working fine. Any ideas?
