    Hello everyone,

    I'm having troubles with my WRT54GS V4.0. I have 3 laptops in the house. When all three attempt to connect to the internet, at one will always fail.

    I currently have two devices browsing the internet without problem. The third which is always the last to be powered on, can only browse internal stuff, but can't access external sites. I've varified the DNS settings and everything is fine (on all three devices)

    This problem began a few days ago. In the past, I never had troubles with the 3 laptops.

    I am currently using WPA2-Personal which all devices support.

    Is there some kind of setting that prevents 2 or more devices from accessing the internet connection?

    It should work fine. The fact that you can see the internal network means its working. Have you tried using different laptops as the "third"? It may just be a wrong setting on that third.

    Yes, I've tried different laptops as the third. The laptop that connects last (3rd) to the network is always the one that is refused access.

    I've done an ipconfig /all on every laptop. The DNS information is the same for each one. 69.*.*.* Yet I can't browse or ping any external sites.

    This problem began Monday night. I've asked everyone in the house and there was no change on the network. In fact, I'm the only one who has access to the router.

    This is a strange problem.

    btw, I've checked my firmware, and it is the latest.

    Any other idea's??

    are they all getting valid IP addresses? is the router set to dhcp?

    Yes, my router is set to DHCP and all laptops are receiving valid IP addresses.

    I should note that I also have two workstations connected phsically to the same router.

    Any more suggestions?
