I am using 2 laptops with a thompson 585 router. One works perfectly whilst the second connects to wireless network with very good signal strength but only 1mbps and so I cannot access internet etc. Not sure if this is to do with Ip addresses - it automatically is assigned a 169 address and I have tried changing this to a 192 address that 2nd laptop uses via ethernet connection (although I'm not quite sure I've used right one)but still only getting 1mbps and no packets received.
Been at this for weeks now....can anyone help please.

P.s. if it isn't obvious I'm a novice when it comes to computers
