In order to get this problem solved, we need to know a little more about your current setup.
1. What kind of connection do you have? (Dialup/DSL/Cable)
2. How is the connection setup? (Straight to the modem/Going through a router(Connected by an Cat5/Ethernet Cable or Wireless) (If DSL/Cable))
3. How is the computer setup to work with the connection?
If you can post back with as much info as you can, this will help with getting this solved.

heres some more info from a previous post
Ok. this is my first attempt at setting up a wireless connection. i got a linksys wireless router. i put the cd in, and follow all the instuctions on how to hook everything up. i have all the lights lit up and everything. but when the cd is configuring the router (after i enter my ip addy, subnet mask, etc). an error message comes up saying "router config. error".
but if i ignore that message and leave everything the way it is, my brothers laptop works wirelessly and i dont have any connection on the PC.
but then, if i switch the cables (take the one thats connected PC to router and change it PC to modem) the PC works, then i lose wireless.
any help would be great.. ive been searching and found info about ipconfig in dos and tried random stuff and still lost. Thanks, Rich

Could you run the Command Prompt:
Start > Run > and type cmd
When you get the Command Prompt it should look like this:
I would like you to type ipconfig /all
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\(AccountName)>
Doing so will list a lot of information of the devices. I would like you to copy that information here, or if you like you can PM it to me if you dont want that info to be shared. To copy from the Command Prompt:
Right-Click > Select All > and press Enter
Doing this will save the information to the Clipboard. Then just paste(Ctrl+V) it here on in a PM to me.

1. Copy down the current wireless key that is being used.
2. Copy down the information of the DSL.(Username/Password)
To find this information we will need to enter the router setup. To do this:
Open Internet Explorer > Enter 192.168.1.1 in the address field
You will be ask for a Username and Password, Linksys routers dont use Usernames only passwords. So enter admin or if you have changed the password, then enter the current password. The DSL information will be on the very first page that loads up (Basic Setup). To get the current wireless key:
Wireless > Wireless Security
Write down the options selected for Security Mode, and Key.
Before I give the step-by-step on configuring the router, please post back letting me know that you have this information. If you are having trouble finding this information please post back.

edit: quick question.. how are you wanting me to access that? when the wireless is only working on the laptop and not the pc.. or only working on the pc not the laptop?.. the only way ill be able to enter my ip and get all that info is if i just have it set up before i ever did anything with the router and have my modem connected to the back of the pc
