No Gateway in "Network Connections"

Discussion in 'Cisco/Linksys Wireless Routers' started by dim, Mar 5, 2005.

    Setup: I have WRT54G with 2 clients (one ethernet and one wireless). Both work fine, ie. internet and files sharing (in network neigborhood) are working. Both are running WinXP SP2 (firewalls disabled).

    Problem: My ethernet client can see "Gateway" in "Network Connections" in WinXP. However, my wireless client does NOT see "Gateway" in "Network Connections" in WinXP (yet internet and file sharing work).

    Tried: I have tried connecting my wireless client directly to the router (through ethernet) but still cannot see "Gateway."

    What determines if my router shows up in "Network Connections"? What am I doing wrong on my wireless client? Is it even possible for wireless clients to see "Gateway" with WRT54G?

    Any suggestions? Thank you.

    You must have "Internet Gateway Discovery and Control Client" and "UPnP User Interface" installed. These are found in Add/Remove Programs under Windows Components.

    Thank you dcorban. I will try that as soon as I get my laptop back (hopefully in 5 days - IBM is good about it).
