Hi, here is my problem, I have Windows xp on both pc and laptop, netgear router, wireless usb adaptor for pc and wireless card for pc. I have been trying for ages to get LAN to work on laptop. I have installed software on pc for router and its working fine, icon bottom right showing up. Also Netgear wireless usb adaptor and software icon showing up on pc green looks fine.
On laptop wireless lan is on, lan network cable unplugged. I have been into ipconfig on both and here are results:
ip address
subnet mask
ip address fe80::218:deff:fe8c:ef9d%4
then stuff about tunnel adapter
connection specific dns suffix
ip address fe80::ffff:ffff:fffd%6
then tunnel adapter automatic tunneling pseudo-interface:
Connection specific dns suffix
Ip address fe80::5efe:

ip address
subnet mask
default gateway
ethernet adapter wireless network connection 2
ip address
subnet mask
default gateway

Ok now i can see that they are not the same, I have no idea what to do to put this right. My daughter used the laptop at a friends house and connected instantly to internet, using belkin router, so I am puzzled not sure were I have gone wrong but i would appreciate some help. Thanks venusgirl

looks ok to me

have you a secure wireless network and need to enter the passcode

do you have a cordless phone - these will stop connection

post and ipconfig /all

opps its the lan you want to work NOT wireless and - i assume you daughter connected using the LAN and not wireless

ipconfig /all
TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

ONE ---------------------------------
ipconfig /all

rightclick in the box
select all
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

TWO -----------------------------------------------

Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:


Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

How is everything connected up

we know the laptop works ok on wireless and it works on your wireless

post an ipconfig /all - for bot PC and LAPTOP - make sure we know which is which in the post - see my post above on how to post the details
