I just bought a new Notebook and am trying to get it to work with my Home Network. I have a DSL Internet connection with a Linksys 4-port router/gateway behind the DSL modem. I also have a Linksys Wireless Access Point connected to the 4-port router/gateway. My existing wired computers have been working fine. One runs Windows 98SE and the other Windows XP Home. My new Notebook has both wired & wireless NICs. I first tried connecting with the wired NIC through my 4-port router/gateway. It got its IP address dynamically and everything seemed to work fine. Then I tried the wireless NIC. Again it got its IP address dynamically and I was on the net. Then I noticed, I couldn't see the other systems on my network, so I clicked on the "Set up Home or Small Office Network". After the wizard ran, I had the network bridge containing both my wired & wireless NICs. The default configuration for the bridge is to "Optain an IP Address Automatically", just like the configuration for the NICs. However, when I connect, this doesn't seem to work and it falls back to its "Alternate Configuration", which is "Automatic Private IP Address". The address is a different subnet than my Home Network, with no Gateway, DHCP Server, or DNS Servers and of course I can't communicate on my network or the Internet. I've only tried this with my wireless connection so far. Why can't it get the address automatically? What am I missing? I need some advice.
