Setup Wireless Connection Problem

To start, thanks to all that help out here, this is a great site and you folks don't get enough credit for what you do.

With that said, a breif description of the problem is, I am trying to connect a wireless notebook to a network. I have been able to get connected by manually putting in the IP info, but never on auto detect.
Problem is on the manually entering, I cannot get to the internet or anything else, it just says I am connected and the speed is good/ excellent.

here are the details,
router type is a MicroSoft mn-700 with latest firmware updated.
Notebook/ wireless computer has a broadcom 802.11g wlan

Opeating system on the desktop is xp pro
OS on the notebook is xp home
Modem type is cable
Router is hard wired to main computer and working great,

Here are the settings that I used on the notebook on the manual enter alternate configuration:

IP add 192 168 2 1
sub mask 255 255 255 0
default gateway 69 145 68 1
preferred dns 69 145 248 50
Alt Dns 69 145 232 4

these settings get me connected to the network, but thats all I can do, no internet.


Next here is the ipconfig from the notebook:

primary dns suffix ..........
node type unknown
ip routing enabled NO
Wins proxy enabled NO

Media State Disconnected
Desc Realtek ect
Physical address 00 c0 9f c2 46 b5

Description broadcom ect
physical address 00 14 a5 11 1e 8a
Dhcp enabled yes
autoconfg enabled yes
auto config ip add 192 168 2 1
submask 255 255 255 0
default gate 69 145 68 1
DNS servers 69 145 248 50
69 145 232 4

Below are the readings for the desktop computer:


primary dns suffix ..........
node type mixed
ip routing enabled NO
Wins proxy enabled NO
DNS Suffix Search list hosct bc1 ect


Desc sis 900 ect
Physical address

Description broadcom ect
physical address 0e 0a e6 0a d0 d3

Dhcp enabled yes
autoconfg enabled yes
auto config ip add 192 168 2 153
submask 255 255 255 0
default gate 192 168 2 1
Dhcp server 192 168 2 1
DNS servers 192 168 2 1

"Here are the settings that I used on the notebook on the manual enter alternate configuration:

What you need to do if you want to manual config the connection is leave the Alternate config alone. Use the tick marks beside "Use the following ip address" and "Use the following dns server addresses" in the main config.

IP address : 192.168.2.x "something in the range of 2-152
subnet mask:255.255.255.0
default gateway:1921.168.2.1
dns: should be the ip's given by your isp for dns but looking at your desktop its using 192.168.2.1 and its online yes?


If you want the laptop to use auto config then make sure your router is setup with dhcp enable. Make sure if you have WEP or WPA setup that you are using the right passkey.
