    Everything's set up fine but now I want to add new laptop to the wireless network.

    The new laptop has detected the wireless network but is not connecting to the internet. I think the problem is I don't know what my "key" is. I've tried the thing but that just goes to my westell router (verizon DSL) page not the linksys page and the "admin" password does not work. Please help!

    ok so if is your westell the thats NOT your wireless routers IP.

    try doing this,

    goto start, Run, type in cmd and enter.

    now type


    the trace should show the IP of your Wireless router (as long as your connected to that first.

    wow! thanks for the quick reply BUT...


    this is the message i got--

    Tracing route to dslrouter []
    1 3 ms 3 ms 2 ms dslrouter []

    not sure what this means?

    my set up is as follows--

    phone cord from wall to westell "line", ethernet cable from westell "ethernet" to linksys "internet", cable from linksys "line 1" to voip (sunrocket's) adaptor "WAN", phone cord from voip "phone 1" to fax machine "line", fax machine "exit" to main telephone (all other phones in house plug into electrical outlets only).

    try disconecting the modem from the router. Connect just the computer to the router. Go to cmd type ipconfig. This will tell you your ip address and the ip of the gateway. The gateway is your router. you should be able to connect to the router using this ip. My guess is that it's but since your internet device has that ip it just forwards you there. You might want to change the IP of the router to 192.168.x.1. You can choose any number for x you like as long as it's under 255. After this you won't be able to connect to the internet device but i'm guessing you don't want ot anyways.
