I have a external (usb)wireless device which is able to connect to my D-link wireless router as soon as i manually configure my ip to within the routers range 192.168.1.100, but then i am not able to connect to the router (or any other web page) when i enter its ip adress in my web browser. As soon as I change ip to automatic config the pc goes way off the ip range and not able to ping the router but wireless stays connected. I am now on the PC that connects via cable to therouter and everything works fine.

Can't really say I know what they suppose to be but will try! what baffles me is that notebook able to talk to router and browse using automatic tcp/ip settings, but my pc with external usb device is unable to talk to router but defnitley establishes wireless connection with router!
Thanks for bearing with us letknow if further ideas
