Wireless router security changes network configuration

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?dHV1Zg==?=, Oct 4, 2005.

  1. I have a home workgroup network with a desktop pc attached to a wired linksys
    router and cable modem. I also have a linksys wireless router (dhcp
    disabled) connected to the main router like a hub. I use this wireless
    connection occasionally when I use my laptop.
    Everything worked fine until I decided to add encryption on the wireless
    router. One of my laptops still works but my sony laptop got misconfigured
    and no longer finds the DHCP server (main router) and consequently is not
    being assigned a “behind the router†IP address. The result is I can’t ping
    any WAN or LAN addresses with this laptop.
    I had to remove the encryption settings and restore the entire hard drive on
    the laptop to get it to work again. I reinstated the encryption settings on
    the wireless router and now the same problem exists again. What do I
    do???????????
