  1. I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 notebook, wireless, to a linksys WRT54GS router.
    I'm connected to my home network but cant use the internet.
    When I do a ipconfig I get:

    Can you connect an ethernet cable directly to the router to obtain Internet ?
    If so (possibly after IE reconfigures itself to work with the Ethernet) can you then do a live Router firmware upgrade. to the current version.

    You may need to refer to the manual on doing a firmware upgrade

    Basically, this info has come from this link:

    And resolved the same issue your having

    Once the router has been updated (and reset)
    You can then try wireless connectivity again
