Troubleshooting Wireless

In case you ever come across the following symptoms:

The wireless is working on the (Linksys) router & adapter but then it stops working. The signal strength is excellent but cannot pull an IP address.

  1. Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

  3. Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults: netsh int ip reset reset.log
  4. Reboot the machine.
