Specs: Windows XP
I formated my lap top and downloaded all the drivers. I'm using a WRT54G liksys router ver.6. I've hooked my l.t. up to that and made numerous networks and it stays stuck on aquiring network address. Renweing IP doesn't work. Whenever I hook up the router it cuts of internet access to the desktop. I've been trying for months to hook up to the internet (wildblue). (L.T was working perectly until I formatted it) I'm losing my mind and I really need some help. The internet is a necessity for me. I need some advice ASAP.

How is the laptop connected to the router (cable or WLAN)?
Have you checked the whole connection, starting from the wall plug (internet) to the computer.

Router connection:
Wall Plug (internet) -> Splitter -> Router (WAN)

PC connection:
Router (LAN) -> PC (LAN)

Are you able to go into the Routers configuration page from the wired PC, when the internet connection is lost?

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

Yes I've checked all that. The router hooks up to the modem and it sends the signal to the lap top. I tried going to the configuration page here recently but it wouldn't let me.

Turn off the pc.
Connect the router directly to the pc by wire.
Switch on the router and wait about 30 seconds.
Now turn on the pc. In windows, check, whether your pc got an ip address from the router. Something like 192.168.x.x.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

Ok, so you might try this.
Connect the computer by wire.
Configure your Local Area Connection manually as follows:
IP address : 192.168.1.100
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS 192.168.1.1

You have to reboot and test.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

I can't remember the default IP address of that router offhand (I have a couple in my office at work) but you can get that info from the manual/guide which you can download from the internet.

I highly recommend you get the manual, and the default IP and then do a reset on the router (ie: with the router powered up, press and hold the 'reset' button for about 10 seconds, then let the unit reboot and it will be reset to factory defaults). Once it's reset to factory defaults, start over getting it, and your laptop setup.
