    Question HELP: Linksys Wireless Router, wired and wireless networking

    I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router, model WRT54G. I have a PC and a Mac hard-wired to the router, with a desktop and laptop PC wirelessly connected. Until this week, all has been well.

    My hard-wired computers are having no issues. My wireless laptop PC is doing fine as well.

    My wireless desktop PC will not connect through the router. The odd bit is that it will connect to the router. I can ping it and even get to the router's web interface to configure it from the wireless desktop. I don't understand what is happening, any tips of suggestions? I can't connect to anything past the router; Internet, other computers' shared resources...

    Power cycle the router and try again. I've had some weird things like that happen when my cordless phone interferes with my wireless router.
    I don't know the same things you don't know.

    I have power cycled the router, server and all workstations with no changes. I have even reset the router's settings back to default. I find it odd that from the workstation in question, I can change it's settings but not access the network through it...

    I had that same scenario here at home. I could connect to the router but not the internet. Power cycling my router would always fix it. I know here it was my cordless phone on my desk that was knocking this PC off. Open a command window and run ipconfig/all. Then compare that to your other wireless PC thats working. Sounds like a DNS problem on that PC. Are you using static or dynamic IPs? Your not using MAC filtering or anything like that are you?

    No Mac filtering. I'll run the command soon and post the results. DynDNS as well.
