Wireless Router Issues
Hello Folks,
I am having problems connecting wirelessly to my router at home. However, any other place I visit I can connect wirelessly just fine. I even installed a new router (had Belkin before, now have a Linksys) and it's still giving me problems. I have the 2 little computers down at the lower right hand of the screen with an Yellow Exclamation Point over it.

I click Diagnose, and it tries to get new IP settings and nothing works. I've tried a few things but to no avail. Again, this is just while I'm here at home. Anywhere else connects fine.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am having the same issue for some time now. Only on my own wireless router at home I am having problems. When waking up computer then I connect to my network and windows can not connect. Windows then does a check for the problem. Sometimes it can not figure out the problem at all, sometimes ask to reset the wireless adapter, sometimes wants to get a new IP address, sometimes only connects locally with limited connection with the yellow exclaimation. The worse is when it blue screens the computer when trying to connect and the problem seems to be with netbt.sys error. I have called Dell support and the person will not listen to the error codes he should be checking on and tells me to reinstall windows from the factory settings! Twice now I have done this and I will not call Dell support again, obviously they have no clue to real tech support. I have called D-Link support and everything seems to be fine. To me it somewhere within the computer not remembering the settings after sleep and resets to some configuration the network wireless settings are not set to, so of course it will not connect. Does anyone have an idea how to keep windows from resetting the configuration or why it blue screens when connecting? Thanks Much in advance!!

Re: Wireless Router Issues
blue screens occur due to incompatible drivers and when it is searching for software in different location. Whenever you have yellow exclamation mark that means DHCP server is not allocating an IP address for your system properly.
1) Install Drivers properly
2) Disable and Enable the wireless connection (when yellow exclamation mark occurs)
3) Check the settings in your wireless router (if possible paste the screenshot here of your wireless router settings)
4) Anti Virus too can "sometimes" block the connection (Macfee does)

Re: Wireless Router Issues
Hi All,

I have a problem similar to one of the above quoted problems. I am working on a Vista Home Premium 64 bit. This laptop was bought from the US by a friend of mine and the internet was working fine on one of the wireless routers there. When I tried to use the internet at my place, where I have a wireless router with a ADSL internet connection, my laptop detects and connects to the router and establishes a connection but the internet does not works. Whereas on my other laptops I can access internet through the same internet and router. Also, I checked my laptop at a friends's place and the internet was working there on the wireless router but yes, the internet connection there is not an ADSL one. Currently, I am forced to use the internet on my laptop with vista through a cable which I draw from the router port. Please help me by giving me a solution to this problem as I am not able to use the internet through wireless router at my place.

Thanks in advance.
