Wireless connection but page cannot be displayed
Posted on 2007-04-11
I recently got verizon dsl. I ordered the wireless router and installed it. I have 5 computers on my network, one is hardwired to the router, and the other 4 are wireless. Anyway, it was a westell router and the internet connection setup fine, but it would intermittenly lose connection. After researching this online I found that this was a known problem with the westell routers, so I had Verizon send me a regular dsl modem and I went out and bought a different wireless router. I set this up last night. I now have internet connection on the wired computer and also on the wireless laptop (that came with a built-in card) however the 3 desktops will not connect to the internet. I have a strong wireless signal and I know the network is working because I can access the router from one of the wireless desktops, I just can't get on the internet I get a page cannot be displayed error. Two of the machines are Windows xp and one is Windows 2000. I was on the phone with linksys last night and they told me to call the wireless card manf. Well this doesn't make sense to me because I had internet (although it bounced) connection using the other westell router. Everything appears to be functioning properly, can anybody shed some light on this???
