Hi,

My desktop computer is connected by cable to a router from Linksys (Model WRT54G) which goes to my Isp modem.. From here everything is fine and works perfectly.

I am trying to get my laptop connected to Internet "Wirelessly" on the same router.
My laptop can connect to the router fine (Signal Strenght: Excellent) but is unable to connect to the internet.

Btw, Both run on Windows Vista.

I already tried to Ipconfig /release - /renew.
Uninstall and delete network card drivers + reinstall.
Turn off modem and router for +30 sec

Thx for helping me. ... Or trying :p

Alex

Top suspect here is a mismatched encryption key or MAC filtering enabled on the router. I'd disable both of those and try to connect. When you get it connected, then you can enable encryption, I'd recommend at least WPA and preferably WPA2-AES.

Does this connect properly with a wired connection?

If it doesn't connect directly, it's not a wireless issue.

Let's see the results of actually connecting it directly to the modem, and make SURE you power cycle the modem when you change the attached device.

After connecting to the modem directly, turning off modem and computer, turn on the modem, then boot the computer, run the following tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
