View Full Version : [ubuntu] web access

I have netgear router. One computer accesses well, wirelessly.
After trying to add a wireless laptop the master computer, ethernet attached, will not display web pages.
What did I do wrong???

Did you turn off wired access in your router. You didn't say whether your desktop computer was running Windows or Ubuntu.

To check if you windows computer is getting an ip address go to Start-->Run and type cmd then press enter, this will open a DOS window, at the prompt type:

ipconfig /release

when the command has finished type:

ipconfig /renew

This will renew the ip address.

If your desktop is running Ubuntu, open an Applications-->Accessories-->Terminal and type:

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

THis will renew the ip address.
