Specs: Windows Vista
I hate having my laptop plugged into the router and my roommates had no idea what the password was so I went ahead and reset it while they were out. Now I cant get on the the internet even when Im plugged in! - and neither can my roommates.

Right now I am plugged in directly to the modem .

I did Ipconfig/all and here are my results...what do I do?

You have to configure the authentication information (login name and passord) in the router.

You should disable the wireless network card, when connected by wire.

Hi,

Set your wireless card Internet Protocol Properties to 'Obtain an IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS server address automatically' and try the wireless connection again, with the Ethernet cable disconnected.

You should also download a copy of the router manual if possible, so that you can set up a proper password protected environment. Also remember that routers usually provide firewall protection, so a direct connection to the modem bypasses this protection.

Having reset the router to its default there is likely no security on the wireless connection, and the router is open to anyone to connect to it.

Regards

Humer told you what to set in tcp/ip properties. Are you asking how to get to tcp/ip properties? Who set you to static ips then?

Hi,

To change the IP, go to Start - Connect To - All Connections and right click on the wireless connection.
Select properties.
Find Internet Protocol in the list - select it and click the properties button
Select the two 'automatically' buttons
and OK your way out.

See if you can now connect by wireless.

If this is in a University / College site then contacting their IT staff would be best as they will know the specific settings required.

As to the second computer - you say that this doesn't have a wireless connection, and now it cannot connect to the Internet.

Before the router was reset, it presumably could connect.

I suggest posting the ipconfig /all for that PC as well.

Did you get the manual for the router - what make / model is it.

Regards
