I bought the Linksys wireless router (http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satel...isitorWrapper)
usb g adapter (http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satel...VisitorWrapper
I have a Laptop connected to the internet wirelessly with the same USB, but my Mother installed it, and have no clue what she did. She said she didn't add any passwords on it. But We just got another Laptop, and already had another of the USB adapters so I installed it, and was going good until......
Well, It installed, connected to Linksys Router, but it wouldn't connect to the internet or acquire an I.P. address.
I open Firefox, it won't connect.
So it gets signal, says it's "Very Good", and shows it receiving on the internet Icon. Everything good, except it stays on "Acquiring I.P. address" or something like that.
It also asked me for an 8-16 letter paraphrase. Is that some king of password I need, or what? I just made up a word thats longer than 8 letters, and Linksys tells me it's connected to the router, but NOT the Internet.
