  1. Correction: I tried it for "resetlog.txt" and "c:\resetlog.txt"
  2. Ok... I did what you said... The DOS screen comes up, the cursor blinks for about 10 seconds, then the DOS screen disappears. I tried it for both "resetlog.txt" and "c:\resetlong.txt" and achieved the same result each time. Is this normal? If not, what do I do now? If it is normal, how do I proceed from here, as my connection still does not work? Thanks!
  3. My laptop doesn't have a floppy drive and neither of the other two working computers has a CD burner, either.
  4. I'm hanging in there as long as you do. It appears you're my only hope right now! I can verify those settings are correct.
  5. Ok... I found the "WEP" stuff at my Base Station Management page. It appears "WEP" is NOT enabled. There is no encryption, so I'm guessing I don't need to punch in a "WEP" key on my non-working computer. What next? Erik
  6. Ok. The settings are correct. But what about this "WEP" I keep reading so much about? I can't find a "WEP" anywhere in my Base Station Management Page. Thanks
  7. akokes mentioned this "WEP" previously, but I can't find anything about it in my Base Station Management Tool. Any suggestions? Also, where do I go on my non-working computer to make sure all of the settings you mentioned are correct? Thanks!
  8. Ok... I ran the "ipconfig" command you referred me to, and here are the telling results: IP address: Default Gateway: nothing is there DHCP Server: DNS Server: I can't find this one on the list. I'm guessing this information tells us something! What next? Thanks for hanging with me!
  9. Uh-oh! Has everyone given up on me? Please don't! I need your help! Erik :help:
  10. akokes, I opened the Base Station Management Tool with the working computer. Now where do I find this "WEP key" you referred me to? Thanks, Erik
  11. akokes, The wireless card is made by Belkin. The router is a Microsoft. Thanks, Erik
  12. akokes, Thank for your help! How do I find the "WEP settings" on the computer that is working? Erik
  13. I did exactly as you said. "Network Connections" was set to "Manual" and not "Automatic." So I changed it to automatic and restarted the computer. But the connection is still having the same problem. What next?
  14. My computer operates with WIndows XP Home Edition, but it appears the instructions you referred me to do not apply to my system. They tell me to go somewhere in Control Panel that doesn't exist in my Control Panel. The directions are for computers running Service Pack 2, so perhaps I don't have SP 2. I don't know if this helps, but when I look at the "Properties" of my Internet connection, it says "Invalid IP address." Thanks for your continued help. You're keeping me sane. Erik
  15. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card and its utility, but to no avail. I still get the same problem: a strong connection with no information being sent back or forth.
  16. It appears the problem is not with the router. I unplugged it, waited, and then plugged it back in. But nothing changed. When I turn on my laptop, I get an icon at the bottom that says I have a "Very Good" signal, yet no packets are sent or received. Besides, I have a third roommate who can access the Internet through the same router, wirelessly and without a problem. I'm wondering if I have a problem with my computer's settings, but I don't know what is right or what is wrong when changing those. Erik
  17. Hello, everyone! Thanks in advance for your help! This has been so frustrating! Here's my problem: I have wireless Internet access in my apartment and connect via a wireless Internet card in my laptop. The card and connection have worked perfectly up until now. I did something wrong and don't know what, but now my computer IS able to receive a good signal from the router but is unable to connect to the Internet. Nothing works: Internet, e-mail, Internet-based applications. I noticed that the connection icon in the taskbar doesn't blink. You know what I mean: the two connected computers in the taskbar usually blink when the connection is complete and information is being sent. I looked into this and saw that no packets were being sent or received. I'm not sure what I did, but I can't figure it out! Can someone give me some advice? Thanks! Erik Haan
