Ensure you are using wep40 or disable wep on router....my two cents.

> Here's what I have done...
> 1.) Wiped Newton clean
> 2.) Installed Internet drivers in the right order:
> 3.) Installed WiFi Driver
> 4.) Went into "Internet Setup" and created an Ethernet Connection that was
> originally DHCP and selected my card
> 5.) Inserted the card and setup all the right information in the WiFi card
> setup page according to what my wireless G equipped notebook PC told me was
> the configurations of the router (a Verizon Wireless Actiontec MI424-WR
> Rev. F) WEP is 64-Bit encoded. Settings are as follows:
> Mode --> Infastructure
> Channel --> 6 (ignored but its what the router said)
> SSID --> GY102
> WEP Key --> Hexadecimal
> Use WEP ---> CHECK
> PowerSaveMode --> CHECK
> After installing Newtscape, I tested out a website or two but to no avail.
> NIE would begin connecting, then read "OPENING LINK PROBLEM CONNECTING,
> DHCP SERVER UNAVAILABLE"
> Looking on here, I found someone mention to another person configuring
> Internet Setup manually to solve certain problems. Using my notebook again,
> I listed out the following:
> Card --> LucentWaveLAN/IEEE
> Subnet Mask --> 255.255.255.0
> Local IP --> 192.168.1.5 (IP Address on WinXP)
> GateWay/Router Address --> 192.168.1.1 (Default GateWay on WinXP)
> Primary DNS --> 192.168.1.1
> Domain Name ---> <NONE> (Not sure what to put here)
> Now, NIE says that it is connecting, and Newtscape begins to look up the
> host and the card starts blinks. Yet after a few seconds, the browser reads
> "NO RESPONSE FROM YOUR CURRENT DNS SERVER". When Newtscape is closed
> though, it says the card is disconnecting. I feel SO close to getting this
> thing online! Can you guys guide me through this? Thanks!
