      Are those laptops receiving their IP addresses from the SR101? You could reserve an IP address in the SR101, then reconnect the laptop to see if it picks up the address you've assigned.

      What OS are you running on the laptops? If it's Win7, then you should check that they are connecting to your homegroup. Win7 seems a bit sensitive to changes in your network configuration and tends to default to public network.

      Also, do you have the wireless turned off on the SR101?

      Yes they all are. And the settings like that are all correct so it doesn't make sense why it would not receive any internet. And I have tried setting a static IP on the laptops, as well as setting a Reserved IP on the SR101. But still nothing.

      One laptop is running Vista, another Win7, and mine which works is Win8.

      We still have the wireless on the SR101, but surely that wouldn't affect the laptops and mobile devices from receiving internet and the correct IP's, would it?

      It shouldn't do as long as there's no conflict between switching between the different access points, i.e. it can still renew it's IP address from the DHCP server etc.

      Definitely check the network set up on the Vista and Win7 machines. I've only got a single Win7 machine, but after playing around with a router or two, it didn't think I was on my home network. and gave me the "limited connectivity" warning. I could see other devices within the network, but no access to the outside world.
