Hi there,
First off I apologise for any typo' as my keyboard had an accident recently and the wireless replacement cant keep up...

I am trying to give 3 pcs 'net access over a 2Meg ADSL connection using a wireless rouer:

Router:
Billion Bipac 5102g (ADSL/ADSL2+ 802.11g).
Encryption disabled (for now)
MAC filtering enabled.


PC1:
Win XP, Wired connection to router. No problems

PC2:
Win2K:
Wireless connection, no problems. (belkin card, not sure the model but its a PCI 802.11b )

PC3
Win ME:
Belkin "Wireless G USB Network Adaptor" (USB)

The Win ME machine can connect to the router but not the internet. I have checked the MAC filtering repeatedly and the address is correct so thats not the problem. This machine can connect to a nearby network(and get online)with no problems, but not mine.
The router is seup to assign IP addresses from 192.168.1.100- 192.168.1.199 but this machine always has an ip of 192.168.1.3 and trys to use 192.168.1.1 as a gateway (router is 1.254)

Any ideas anyone?

you can set a static ip address on the wireless card once it's turned on...have you tried that?

Er, no I hadn't tried that :) Forced the IP address and DNS etc. And it now works. Hooray.
Cheers for your guidance :tazz:

well...now that you got it to connect to your wireless router...we need to find out why it's not getting a dhcp address....could you make sure that you don't have mac address filtering on the router and that dhcp is enabled on the router
