Hi There

Sounds like your security settings have changed

Login to your Linksys router by putting 192.168.1.1 in IE / Firefox etc then view your wireless settings. These settings MUST be the same on ALL client machines.

Sorry, I do not understand
What do I have to do exactly? Please elaborate...
How do I login to my router? How do I make them all the same?
Thanks

Hi There

Sorry I was a bit vague.

OK lets take this step by step

Click Start then All Programs

Look for Internet Explorer (IE) and open it
In the address bar, where you type a web address, please type:
192.168.1.1 and press Enter

You should now be presented with your Linksys Router login page.

Have a go at that and let me know if thats what you get.

Regards

Once the black command prompt opens type: ipconfig

then press Enter

Nicolecolgate,

The information you presented looks like the results of a Google search. Normally, you would enter 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, i.e., the part where you would normally have a web address such as http://www.geekstogo.com. Erase that address and enter 192.168.1.1, and then hit enter. You should get a login screen.

However, I'm going to repeat what a staff member has told you in another thread - you need to finish your malware topic with BHowett. Because you have malware, it may be interfering with your wireless connection. Until your computer has been declared clean, it's difficult to help you with other issues. It's also not fair to our staff to open multiple topics about different issues at once, as the advice given on one issue could conflict with another. Please observe the rules of our forum by sticking with one topic at a time. At this point, the malware topic takes precedence.

It doesnt give me a login page
When I type that in and press enter it searches that link for me... it automatically searches it in yahoo or something
I do not have malaware on this computer. This is a different computer than the one that I was infected with.
Thanks

What does it mean when you try to connect to the wireless network and it says this:
The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network.
There is also a red X next to it
I have never seen this before

Hi There

By the looks of things you are not connecting to your router but it is strange that a search page is being displayed, so you must be connecting to something.

What was your output from ipconfig?

Regards
