Thanks for the info but I found the instructions lacking in detail and hard to follow. Here is what I did:
Manually set my IP address by clicking on wireless signal icon to see the Wireless Network Connection > Properties > General Tab > Scrolled down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), Clicked on "Use the following IP address" then entered this info which I got from running ipconfig:
IP Address: 192.168.1.102
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1
As soon as I did this I remained connected to my router but lost internet connectivity. So I went back and re-selected obtain an IP address automatically and I regained internet connectivity.
Please clarify the instructions Jeff. Thank you - Robert.
