Wireless Network troubles
Posted on 2003-12-10
Hello again. I'm back with a new question in regards trying to get my three computers to network and access the internet utilizing a Dlink DI-614+ wireless router.
I have 3 computers at home. An HP Pavilion P111-800mz running XP home(SP1). The second is a Toshiba Satellite 1950 laptop Pentium4-2GHZ with XP Home(SP1). The third is a NEC Versa Laptop running Win 98SE. We utilize a dial-up internet connection that is hosted on the Pavilion computer and shared via ICS with the other. I have the wireless router connected to the Pavilion via a yellow cross over cat cable. I installed the wireless NIC into the Toshiba and connection all goes well with fiele sharing and internet access. I tried the wireless NIC in the NEC. It says it connects but the problem I have is that it can't see the Pavilion nor access the internet. Yet, when I connect the NEC via a blue cat cable to the wireless router it sees the other computers and it connects to the internet. However, one problem still lingers.The NEC can't access web pages or email. It says its connected to the internet. Everything else works fine
Any help or advice to resolve this problem would be sincerely appreciated.
P.S. I am utilizing static IP settings given to me as provided by Irmoore in his response to my previous network question.
