Im using the ASUS WL-500g, firmware 126.96.36.199 (original)
I'm sorry if Im asking something silly.. but Im a newbie at this so be gentle please. I tried really, really hard to get this to work, I READ the f* manual, looked on google etc etc.. but I cant get it to work. I have my WL-500g setup as Home Gateway. ADSL modem connected. up and running, my wired PCs all can connect to the internet.. HURRAY! works great.
But my laptop (wireless) CAN connect (54mbps) but I cant ping anything or surf the internet, or connect to http://192.168.5.253
(the router). The ASUS Device Discovery cant even find the WL-500g (from the wireless laptop), although it says it has connection. If I connect the laptop to the router through Cable (with the same TCP/IP settings) I suddenly CAN connect and ping and surf etc..
Why doesnt the wireless thingy work? Im probably missing something REALLY obvious. Sorry in advance for that.. But please help.
LAN IP: 192.168.5.253, 255.255.255.0, gateway: 192.168.5.253
PC1 (wired) 192.168.5.1, 255.255.255.0 can connect to internet
Laptop (wireless) 192.168.5.9, 255.255.255.0 cannot connect to internet, but has wireless connection.
Please post if you need more information, or even suggest another wireless router. lol.
Thanks so much for your help.
