My wireless devices have recently stopped connecting to the internet. The computers that are wired via Ethernet cable work fine but my laptop, xbox 360, wii, and gaming computer (all connected wirelessly) arent being assigned IP adresses, and I don't know what to do. My wireless devices are finding the router and have excellent signal strength, but there is still a problem. I have DHCP enabled and everything on the devices on auto. All of the security settings are also disabled, so I know that isn't the problem either.

These devices were all working properly before, and just stopped working out of the blue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Wireless devices not being assigned IP adresses...

Since all wireless devices are failing, it sounds like your router may have a problem. Have you reset it to factory defaults and reconfigured?

The make/model of the router would be useful information here. :smile:

Let's see this from the laptop.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Re: Wireless devices not being assigned IP adresses...

After resetting the factory defaults my gaming computer says it is connected, but i can't access the internet. My xbox passes the IP test, but fails the DNS test. My router is a linksys BEFW11S4 (sorry i forgot it last time :p ) The results of the ipconfig are as follows:

Re: Wireless devices not being assigned IP adresses...

I just tried it again and everything worked. I guess it was just as simple as resetteing the defaults lol. Well, thanks a lot for your help. I really appreciate it.
