Hi, I have a computer I bought from an old employer. My linksys router at home worked fine, until I started a new consulting job, where they don't have wireless.
At first, when we plugged in the internet to the laptop at work, nothing worked. IT did some things at the DOS prompt, and voila the hardwired internet connection *at work*, worked.
Problem is, I come home where the linksys is, and no go. The Linksys configuration tool shows the laptop can see the wireless router and the network "linksys" is 100%, but it stops there. No internet.
I called RCN tech support and they said to do an "IPconfig", and when I did, all I got was the banner for my operating system "windows 2000 blah blah blah", and apparently, there is supposed to be an IP address that spits out on an IP config?
Has anyone seen anything like this?
Basically- wireless works, go to work with no wireless and connect to internet -> screws up your IP address?! thanks for any info! I think I'm screwed! Michelle
