I have verizon dsl at my house. My room mate has the router in his room, and in mine, I am using a westell 327A, 802.11g wireless usb adapter on windows 98se. We got the service 6 months ago, and my neighbor, who has since moved set everything up, so I have no idea how he did it.
Recently, I had to re-install my windows, which means that I had to re-install my USB adapter. I have spent hours on the phone with verizon, and they have done nothing. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the adapter numerous times, and nothing has worked. Under the networking tab on the adapter, I cannot get the, Gateway, DHCP server, and DNS server slots to fill in, and I think that is the only problem. it says I am connected, but I am not receiving any packages in the throughput. Last time, I think my neighbor went to winicpfg and did some stuff, but i am not sure what.
I would be grateful for any help, and I hope I gave enough info.
thanks in advance
