Wireless adapter not connecting

I installed the wireless adapter. At first it would find my router, but not connect. Then I manually put in the ip, subnet ect into the tcp/ip and that got me connected.
 
It says that I am connected to my router, and I have a strong signal. Still the internet doesnt work. It sends packets very slowly and receives them even slower like 1 per 30 seconds. The little icon is blinking blue and I have a very good signal, 4/5 bars, but no internet.
 
I have tried unistalling and resetting router and that did nothing.
 
TIA for the help.

Hey thanks for replying.
 
Yes there is a wired comp to the router. I got the ip address from that computer. For the sub mask and others I looked in the router config page...192.168.0.1...should they be different or the same. I'll try looking them up again, but someone is using that comp.
 
Also theres 2 other computers that are hooked up wireless to the router with no prob

Re: Wireless adapter not connecting

well I dont get an error message...
 
I found out that I can put in any made up ip address in the tcp and it will say connected, but the internet doesnt work.
 
when I leave it on automatic, it sits there trying to acquire the ip to no avail.

Re: Wireless adapter not connecting

I would like to know why I keep loosing my wireless connection.  I am connected to the internet but not through my router.  I have a linksys WRT120N Router.  it works fine for awhile but then it looses it's connection.  It seems like everytime I get a windows update it disappears on me. Is there something there that I need to change?  when I click to repair the connection  it says that there is no break in the connection.  How do I repair this annoying problem?
