Win2K Wireless Lan Setup
Posted on 2003-10-26
I have a Toshiba Portege 4000 laptop with built in WIFI card and just purchased new DLink wireless router and ADSL hub. I can get the desktop machine working on the workgroup fine, connect to the internet, ping the router etc... all fine using the built in DHCP in the router. The laptop says I have EXCELLENT Wifi connection but am unable to ping ANYTHING, when I use IPCONFIG it says the Wireless LAN connection DOES NOT have IP address, also says Wireless network cable is unplugged.
Have tried anything and everything, even assigning IP address by hand but cant seem to get through to the router at all, have opening up all necessary ports and turned off the router firewall, also allowed ICMP to work etc etc I can ping localhost from the laptop so know TCPIP is working properly just seem to be unable to "attach" the TCP to the wireless LAN card and hence use internet / local LAN.
I am ready to throw everything out the window! Please help!
