Laptop has linksys wpc54g adaptor, router is linksys WAG54GS.
Wireless security is disabled at both ends. Laptop linksys monitor shows 100% signal strength & quality, and can see the SSID, channel, etc.
But it cannot get an IP from the routers DHCP, and instead has created one: 169.254.146.141 with subnet mask of 255.255.0.0. I gather this gets created by the OS when a DHCP cannot be found.
I also have a PC hard wired into the router which works fine and get an IP from the DHCP server.
I should add that when looking at the wireless status on the router, the Wireless Clients Connected table identifies the MAC address of the laptop but shows a blank IP & subnet.
So now I don't know where to turn?
