Most commonly, this problem occurs when a router and the computers do not all have the same network mask set.

In your case I would recommend you check the network mask on your Linksys box and the computers and have it set to to see if that resolves the problem.

I have had it up to here(hold hand over head) with this Netgear Router. My laptop with a Netgear Wireless Adapter can see the router, but can’t handshake with it. And my desktop system can’t see a thing with the RJ45 cable. Something has to be done about this. Pepole are going to start walking away from wireless and keep the hardwire.

I just recently purchased a D-Link router for my home. I have a lap top at home that connects with no issues. I also have a lap top that I use for work. When I attempt to access my wireless network with my work lap top, it says that it’s connected with little or no connectivity. I contacted D-Link with no help. I just realized this morning that the work lap top has Black Ice PC Protection and it is listing “Events” with the D-Link IP address. Any ideas on how I might be able to access my home wireless network with my work lap top?
