Linksys can connect to AP but get private IP
Posted on 2006-05-02
Hi i have a linksys WRT54GS (uk version) - net update told me i did not need any more firmware
This computer - (XP Pro) - Linksys WRT54GS
Other computer - XP Home - Linksys WUSB54G
Second computer, after running the the setup wizard...it connects to the AP, but says cannot locate the internet. IP Config either comes back as 0.0.0.0 or as a 169.x.x.x address.
Everything has been uninstalled and re-installed, and re-booted. Router has been reset, and re-programmed using the CD, just changed default IP range on the router.
From second PC i cannot ping the router 192.168.16.1
Its as if the router is not answering DHCP requests from the second PC
