I've got a Cisco Linksys E2500 router that we used to use for our home wifi a few years back (we've had an ISP-provided modem/router combo for the past couple years at our last apartment), and I can't connect to the internet wirelessly through it. I'm finally able to connect via a wired connection (the default IP address -
192.168.1.1 - was the same as what the ISP-provided modem uses; changed it to .2 and wired is OK) and get internet access that way, but wirelessly I can only connect to the router without internet access.
When I connect my laptop (
Windows 7 ok apparently Windows 10) wirelessly, I get
connected, no internet
This morning, my Android (Nexus 6, Android 6.0.1) would get stuck on the "Obtaining IP Address..." stage of connection. Now it gets to the same place as the laptop (connected, no internet) before starting the connection attempt all over.
The firmware version of the router is 1.0.0.
I've tried pinging
192.168.1.2 (the router and the modem, respectively) from my laptop while connected via wifi, and both of them yield
Reply from 192.168.1.5: Destination host unreachable.
Request timed out.
192.168.1.5 is the IP address of the laptop when it's connected via Ethernet.
How can I get devices wirelessly connected to the router to access the internet?
