    I just bought a new PC and have windows 7. When I connect to the Linksys wrt54g via wire, my computer cannot connect to the internet. Window 7 sees the router but won't connect to the internet. My old computer ran XP and I was able to connect no problem with the same setup. I don't think it is the router because my laptop gets wireless connection without a problem. Any ideas?

    I'mcrazylikethat,

    Are there any other computers connected to the router that do indeed have internet access? Are you able to run "ipconfig"to ensure that your computer can see the gateway for the router, or does it have a self assigned IP?

    I have a laptop that is able to receive wireless internet from the router without any problem. I ran ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew and that did not solve my prob.:(
