Hi, I have a wireless network from a long time ago and I have't been using it for a long time, I forgot the passcode web key and also forgot the network name, and there are about 21 wireless network within the reach.
So I tried to go in to the rounter to see this but I also forgot the password to the router. So I reset the router to it's default setting. Go in there, set my router up and set a new web key up. But when I go and connect to my wireless, it keeps on staying at the stage where it said acquiring network address and eventually say not connected. I have make sure that everything is right but I don't know what else to look for. Before, I can connect a cable to my computer directly from the router and use the internet butnow I can't.
My question is, do i need to configure my dsl into the router. I have Quest DSL, the dsl modem is ACTIONTEC (GT701R) and the router is a Linksys (GRT54GS V4).
I'm at a friend using their internet, please get back with me quickly.
Oh yeah, I use windows xp professional. I also change the wireless security from WAP to wep, i don't know if that will make a different.
