A friend cannot get his laptop to work with the Belkin F5D7230-4 router. This happended after his ISP broadband service failed.
The ADSL Modem connects to the Belkin router. A desktop connected by cable to the router can see the Internet, the laptop using wireless cannot. The laptop can connect OK using a cable.
Using wirless the IP of the laptop is 169.254.xxx.xxx which I read means that the router's DHCP is not working. Can this be correct if the laptop gets the correct IP using a cable?
Any suggestions please!
