Well Gang Here’s another one for you.
So much for cutting and pasting from word!!! Any way check it out. I'd appreciate any feedback that I can get.
I. Wireless-G card sees the router and is assigned a valid IP Address; however there is no access to the internet.
A. Used the “Network Monitoring software to configure the card.
1. I disabled “Windows Wireless Network Configuration”
B. I’ve lowered the RTS threshold to 2304 as advice by Linksys’ knowledge base with no joy.
C. Keys Match
D. SSIDS Match
E. Pass Phrases match.
F. “Shared Key” is enabled on both machines
II. The offending machine is seen by the router with the proper MAC and computer name.
III. Interesting tidbits
A. The offending machine worked fine until it contracted a bug. Little man loves crackz sites and I think he got a bit o malicious scripts or worse. The router and cable modem were reset and the offending machine cycled.
B. When trying to access www.yahoo.com
, the status bar briefly (I Mean Very Briefly displays “website found” and it looks as if you can see a flash of the “Yahoo” home page, but it almost immediately changes to the “Page Cannot be displayed” Message that most of us are familiar with.
C. The Network monitoring software that is included with the Linksys wireless-g cards reports the MAC addresses as being the same in both machines…………HUH?!!!!!!
1. An ipconifg /all on each machine reveal totally different MACS. I’m assuming those are the correct ones since that tool gets its information right from the hardware. I’d LOVE to hear an explanation for this one.
Is there something I’m missing in the router settings?!
Any light any of you can shed would be greatly appreciated.
