Excellent Signal Strength, but no Wireless Available
by someone19 - 8/9/04 10:40 AM
I am adding a laptop (windows xp home, toshiba a65-s126 with integrated athenos super g wireless card) to an existing home network. My router is a linksys BEFW11S4 (wireless-b) and I am on a cable modem connection. Currently I have two desktops (one linux, one winxp) with wired lan cards connected to the router, and both can connect to the internet with no problem. I have used a wireless laptop on the network before, so there are no hardware problems with the wireless feature on the router. I have tested configurations with WEP enabled and disabled, but have the same results. The laptop shows an excellent signal strength and finds my network ssid, but when I try to load a web page, the taskbar shows "resolving hostname...", but the page does not load. I cannot ping the router or the other computers from the laptop, but when I look at the wireless client MAC list in the router settings, the laptop's MAC and assigned ip (192.168.1.19) appear. Thanks in advance for helping out!
