Hi
my WiFi is not able to work properly with my laptop, even when the wifi is connected. All of the other devices are able to connect with WiFi and browsing can be done through those. My router is Linksys E1200 model. On the setup page for router settings, the MAC address clone is showing the MAC of my laptop. I have not enabled any MAC filter for WiFi as of now. Can anyone suggest anything to get the WiFi working for my laptop?
thanks

Enabling MAC address clone would only affect your network if the Linksys MAC was used for ISP registration. In any case, you should be able to just disable MAC cloning to keep the Linksys from using your laptop's address.

Has your laptop ever worked with on this AP? Did you make any other changes that might have affected it? Does the laptop have the latest wireless adapter drivers? Any specific error messages when attempting to connect or browse?
