Problem with Router or Computer

  [DELETED] 19:28 22 Apr 2006

I have a wireless router with Tiscali 1mb broadband. Connected to the router are two PC's which are both wired to it. The prolbem is that my computer cannot connect to the interent or MSN, But my dad's does.

My computer however does work when I use a normal Adsl modem.

I have restarted the router several times to see if that was the probelm, but did not solve anything.

Does anybody know how to solve this??

Thanks in advance

I have been into the setup page and all the settings are the same with the router, which is an Addon GWAR3000

So what you are saying is your computer is Wireless!

Have you been trying to setup security options i.e encryption. If so turn it off and get your comp to connect before setting up the above

My computer is wired to the router!!

Then if you loaded your user name and password into the router it should connect. Also after setup Page you should turn the router power of, then restart it

The router connects to the internet fine, and my dad's computer can access the internet but I can't. His is also wired to the router.

Are your TCP/IP connection settings exactly the same as your fathers?

Is it set to assign an IP address automatically for instance?

The router automatically assigns an IP. But I'm not completely sure that it is.

Yes but is the TCP/IP setting on your computer set to automatically obtain an IP address.

The LAN settings are set to auto.
