No Internet Access through Wifi Router in Laptop

Q: No Internet Access through Wifi Router in Laptop

Dear Friends,

I am encountering strange issue while connecting my laptop to my home wifi router. I have 4 devices connected to router and working perfectly, but my Dell laptop suddenly stopped connecting to internet. It seems to be connected to router, but says No Internet Access. This is new issue, since it was working fine along with other 4 devices in the past.

Tried doing some basic steps, like - Removing the devices from Network Center and adding again, Reset the Router, ipconfig /renew ipconfig /release..but nothing works.

The funny thing is when I do a USB/Wifi Hotspot Tethering using same wifi with my Android phone, the Dell laptop connects to internet.

So, Its clear that Wifi Router is Good, Internet is Good, Laptop Network Card is also good, but something else is wrong. Please help.

OS - Windows 10(The same issue was there in Windows 7 HP before installing Windows 10)

Hi everybody!

I would be happy if anybody could help me solve my network connection problems. I am trying to connect my laptop to internet via wireless router and modem. It successfully connected to router there is no internet access. I have tried wire connection directly to the modem, and it worked. I also know the wireless router is working fine due to we have phones that wirelessly connected to the router, and they are also getting internet access.

Please help!

A:Laptop wifi connected to router but no internet access

I would firstly, double check security and you typed your passkey in right.. sounds dumb but has fixed many peoples errors. Also make sure you didn't block your MAC Adrees.

If still no go, turn off the router security then try to connect.

If no go try updating the drivers.

If still no go then we got issues.

I have been trying for some time to accomplish the title result. I'm not techie enough to do it.

What I want is to be able to use a Tablet to read in the rear of my home (which is out of range for incoming wifi signal.)

If I can set up the computer to do this, I will cable connect to a router in that area.
I have two computers and could use either.

1.a PC running XP (should update to windows 8.1, but have never bothered to do that, since XP works just fine. (I had this computer sharing to the router, when I had DSL internet connection, using Windows wizard to set it up) Couldn't get it to work when I switched to WIFI internet access) I could switch to win 7 or 8.1 if that would help.

2. a Lap Top running WIN 8.1,

Any help is appreciated.

This morning i tried to use other devices (another laptop, a cell phone and an ipad) that were working fine before, but now they don't have internet access. The devices can connect to the router, but internet shows "No internet". I was checking if their were getting the info like ip, dns..etc and they had it so have no clue what's going on. The only 2 things that do not have problems is my laptop and a WDTV Media Player.

Hi All,

Have tried to figure this out from a few posts here but my situation always ends up different. I have an i-mac that i have no troubles with, it connects via WiFi or a wired connection, with which I am using to post this. I also have a fairly crappy asus netbook with windows xp that i really just want to muck around with. It connects to my wireless network fine with great signal and what not but will not connect to the internet.

What I have tried : going into command prompt to ping. I can ping my computers IP address with no problems (not sure if this even means anything just saw it on another post) but there is no Default Gateway displayed when i >IPCONFIG /ALL. Im wondering if this may have something to do with it as I saw a suggestion to PING the default gateway in another post.

dont know if im heading in the right direction or not? any help from anyone that knows what they're doing would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

My home computer will connect fine to the internet, as will my iPhone and my family's androids. And just yesterday, my laptop was working fine when I wanted to use the internet. Last night, I was on YouTube, when my internet just started failing. So I opened Steam, then Skype. Neither worked. So I just shut it off for the night hoping it'd fix itself. It hasn't. I tried one suggestion of changing my router time, that didn't help. I also tried simply restarting my router. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I wanted to share my ethernet internet connection over wifi so I have created a wifi hotspot on my laptop using "NETSH" commands in cmd prompt.
I have enabled sharing of ethernet connection by going to ethernet properties>>sharing>>check box (Allow other network users to connect through this computer) but the internet is not being shared.
I have configured other devices with static IPs. Gateway and subnet mask is also correct. I am also using different IPs of the same subnet.
Everything was working fine until perhaps I tried installing Connectify software, I uninstalled it later.
Kindly help to troubleshoot the issue.

I have a Dell Studio 1555 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium that I've owned for just over two years.

Last night, after a couple of hours using the internet, the connection stopped. The wireless router still had an 'Excellent' signal, but it also said I had no internet access. All of the other wireless devices in my house connect to the internet perfectly, including when right next to the laptop.

I've tried disabling the firewall and resetting the computer a few times, but nothing seems to pick up the internet access. The troubleshooting guide tells me that it is a problem with the wireless modem, but quite obviously that isn't true.

I haven't installed anything on the computer for several months, and I have already ran a full virus check. Can anyone help me? Thank you in advance!

Hi - I'm currently experiencing a problem with my wireless connection.
I can connect fine to my wireless router and the WPA key I enter is accepted, but the router wont allow me onto the internet. I set up my dads Laptop to the router and that works fine on the same software, but mine refuses to. It connects fine through a wired connection though and allows me onto the internet, so there must be something wrong with the wireless connection my side? Any help would be appreciated!

A:Laptop can connect to router but wont allow access to the internet

There are two things I would like you try / verify. First: when you are using the wifi connection, did you leave the wired connection plugged in? If so, please unplug and try again.
Second: I see that you have a himachi adapter installed. Do you use Logmein VPN software? Can you uninstall it and see if that helps?

I've just got a New Laptop (for Christmas) So I tried to connect to the Internet...

At first I tried to connect it Wirelessly to my Router. The Laptop found my Router so I type in my WPA/WEP Key and I've sucessfully connected, it even said my connection was 'Excellent' and the Signal bar was full.

So when I click on Internet Explorer it gives me the 'Internet Explorer cannot display this Webpage' and when I try and then tells me the problem cannot be automatically repaired when I dianogse (excuse my spelling) the problem. I then directly connected it through an Ethernet Cable with the same results...

To be honest I think it's the Vista software blocking me from the Internet, I've had no problems connecting PC's with XP to the internet before.

Please help

Remove and reinstall all your drivers for the router or modem, then reinstall your WPA codes. Also check to be sure that has not been a firmware upgrade to the router.

The laptop connects but with a persistent messge "no internet access". I am sure i entered the right passkey and enabled the wifi on router configuration page(192.168.1.1 from pc).
My notebook's wifi and ethernet adapter are both set on "Obtain an IP add automatically" and "obtain DNS server automatically". The lan card on pc with win xp is also configured the same way.
I tried declaring the ip and subnetmask explicitly on wlan adapter but it still fails to connect. I don't know...the prblm is in router's configuration or adapter settings or both could be misconfigured?
I tried several methods multiple times but i am so frustrated...none of them is working.

I've never had this happen before. This morning I opened Firefox (version 3.6.20), which I typically use to access the web, and got the "unable to connect" message. I checked my router settings and everything seems fine. I did notice in the router settings the IPv6 connectivity is listed as limited. I'm not sure if this has changed or has always been this way. I unplugged my router and cable modem, restarted both computers and tried to access the internet via Firefox again...without success. I opened IE (version 9) and am able to access the internet just fine. Anyone know why one browser works fine but another cannot access the web?

This computer is a Sony Vaio running Windows Vista home premium connected via a Belkin wireless router to a cable modem.

Hey guys, I'm experiencing a frustrating issue with my wireless connection on my W7 laptop and was hoping for some troubleshooting tips.

First off, here are the relevant specs:

- HP Pavilion dv9000 laptop computer (Windows 7 Ultimate)
- Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN (Network adapter)
- Speedstream 6520 (Wireless DSL router)

Recently, I've been experiencing a problem where my wireless Internet connection randomly goes from "Internet access" status to "No Internet access" status. Sometimes it also goes to "Limited access". The (!) yellow exclamation point shows up on the wireless icon in the right-hand taskbar corner.

I can fix this temporarily by turning the wireless switch off and back on again (I have a physical switch on my laptop), which brings back the Internet access. But after about 15 minutes give or take, the connection fails again. It is an extremely frustrating occurrence that now happens every 15 minutes without fail.

Things that might be causing this:
- Recently changed my SSID
- Recently disabled SSID broadcast to prevent neighbors from seeking out my connection

Things I've done to try fixing the problem that have not worked:
- Changing SSID again
- Enabling SSID broadcast
- Changing the router's channel (I've tried channels 11, 10, 6, 2)
- Checking the power setting on my network adapter to make sure it wasn't shutting off on low power

A:Random "No Internet access" problem on WiFi laptop

N series can often do some pretty strange things. One thing I see happen is the card will latch at 300Mbps but it is meant for 150Mbps so obviously it won't see the router. Look to see what speed it is reporting it has latched at. The other is if you don't have IPV6 addresses working then disable the IPV6 component of your nic in the Control Panel settings for the Network Card.

Hi all,
I have a rather perplexing problem with internet access from my laptop (Win 7 Home Premium, Avast Free). My property is a large building with thick, granite walls so I've added 3 hard-wired, wireless access points (2 recycled, old routers and a TP-Link WAP) in various locations back to the main router (BT Homehub 3), served by up-to 8Mbps BT broadband service (I typically get 6Mbps - no fibre-broadband available here!) Just to complicate things a little more, this is a holiday property with 4 other families staying, so bandwidth use is a little difficult to control.
Mostly, everyone has been fine: my Android phone, my Nexus tablet and my wife's iPad plus other visitors' various devices all connect via wifi from any of the access points. (Everyone had problems this morning but I think BT may have been doing something with the exchange overnight so I'm going to assume, for now, it's just my laptop that's having problems).
OK, the laptop will connect to any access point, including the main router, but generally states "No internet access" from there. I say "generally" because it has done on past visits to the property and sometimes connects briefly - usually if I reset, disconnect or unplug something. Also, I CAN connect the laptop via Ethernet from any point.
Can someone outline a process I can try to identify and fix the laptop please? If problems recur with other kit I may need help with my local network too.
Thanks,

I bought a Cisco Valet M10 wireless router a few days ago and I have been having issues where my laptop says that it is connected to network and it shows maximum strength signal, but underneath the network name it says "No internet access". I have already contacted Cisco several times and also HP, as well as my ISP. I was told by someone from Cisco that Atheros (which is what my laptop has) has some problems with connections to wireless routers and I was told to manually update. I already tried and it says that my driver is already up to date. The internet connection on my desktop is fine so I don't think the issue is with my ISP. I have an ipod which is not having any connection issues, thus making me think the problem might be with my labtop and not the router. I connected the ethernet cable directly to my laptop and the internet works fine that way on my laptop.

I live in a 2 story house and my desktop is upstairs and I noticed that when I took my laptop downstairs, that it would loose internet access almost every time, but a while ago my laptop lost connection and I had it in my room which is right next to where the desktop is so now I don't think the problem has to do with the range. Sometimes it works when I am downstairs, but mostly it does not.

So how can i fix this problem? This is very frustrating and I feel like just returning the router.

P.s. the OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

A:Laptop losses internet access, but says "connected" to wireless router

Try your laptop with your friends router. This proves if the problem is related to your laptop.

When problems occur ("no internet access"), can you still access the router configuration?

hi all, hope someone can help me with this,


i have broadband from virgin media with one of their superhubs made by netgear, i have a CCTV DVR plugged into this using a regular cat5 cable, the DVR will allow you to view 4 cctv cameras via the internet,

android and blackberry phones can both connect to the router using wifi, an IBM laptop running XP also has no problems, the only thing that does have a problem is a new Toshiba laptop running windows 8,

if the DVR is plugged into router before win 8 connects then the win8 machine cannot log on using wifi, it gives message saying restricted access and has no internet access, if you unplug the DVR win8 machine logs on fine you can then plug DVR back in and laptop can browse all day with no problems, if you log off then try and log on again you get the same restricted access message again

spent over an hour on phone with toshiba tech support and the best he could come up with is windows 8 is not correctly configured for my network

can anyone help with this problem

A:restriced access on wifi while dvr plugged into router

Try method 3 first in this post at Microsoft

WIFI connection shows Limited Access windows 8 - Microsoft Community

If still no success, then go to your device manger and uninstall your wifi drivers and reboot

Then reconnect to your wifi with the dvd already connected.

You will need to re-enter your wifi password.

So, I live in my parents' basement, and I'm positioned at the very front of the house down here. The router (a Linksys WRT54GL, stock firmware) is down here with me right on my desk along with the cable modem and moving them is not an option. I need the simplest solution possible, perhaps something I can put upstairs on the main floor.

My parents have a gazebo out in the back as shown below and they like to take their laptop out there and even though it functions, they say that the signal is just barely strong enough and so it reduces the performance noticeably as compared to being in the house (roughly where that chimney is, but on the main floor). I can see that because I'm literally at the front of the house in the basement (as close to the front as you can get, right about in the center and I'm facing West and so the router is right up against the wall). So, the router is as far away from the gazebo as is possible, outside of putting it in the front yard or something.



So as you can see, it's not exactly close! So do they need a WiFi extender, an access point, or should I get a better router? What's the best option without costing too much money?

Additionally, I don't know what's good or bad on the market, and so I need your help with that as well. I'd like to get them the best unit possible whatever that may be (extender, access point, or router) so that it does an excellent job and can keep working for as many years to come as possibl...

Although I am connected to our wireless network on the Folio 13, there is no internet connection. I can, however, connect to the internet via Wifi on two other household laptops, both of them HP, so I believe the problem is with the Folio itself. I can also connect to other computers on the network on the Folio, but something is preventing it from getting on the internet. I can only get the internet via hardwired ethernet connection on the Folio. I have tried the following fixes, multiple times, without success: -Run the Windows troubleshooter for Internet/Network. It says the connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken. (But not on other wifi computers here--works fine.)-Reboot/Reset the modem.-Disable/Renable the wifi adapter (Intel Centrino Wireless N 1030)-Update wifi adapter driver (it says driver is up to date)-Uninstall/reinstall wifi adapter-Remove Wifi Network from list of available networks; reboot, add this network back in-Roll back all Windows updates from the past month-Searched self-help forums for a possible solution And yes, the wifi keyboard light is blue, not orange. Can someone help please?

Hello,

Short story even shorter, there was a semi-power outage this morning (lights were very dim but power wasn't totally off), and when the power came back on my router stopped working. Here's what I know:

-The WLAN LED is no longer lit so there's no wireless. That orange CiscoSystems button is no longer glowing orange either if that means much.

-For some odd reason a wired connection through any of the ethernet ports on the router no longer works either, though the LED's still light up when connected, along with the internet LED.

-The modem works fine, I'm connected to the internet directly from the modem right now.

-I've tried to reset the router, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

-I've tried to access the router config settings, and the page doesn't load.

-I've tried to look up the routers ip address through the command prompt but when I enter the command "ipconfig" when I'm wired through the router I always get the response something along the lines of "media disconnected". When I try the command when connected directly to the modem the default gateway ip address comes up as '68.43.36.1'. This doesn't work either.
I've been searching the web for solutions for hours and I can't find one. This is actually the first time I've ever had to post a thread asking for help and I've experienced a slew of computer problems over the years, lol.

I was attempting to port foreward for my PS3, but was having no luck. Long story short, I tried changing the router's IP to see if it would work. Here's where the problem began. I changed it from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.1.1, which I believe may have made it conflict with my modem. Now I'm stuck not being able to access the internet through the router at all or access the router's configuration to change it back. When I try to access it, I just get a "Page not Found". The computer connected directly to the router is running Windows XP. The Router is a Linksys WRT54GS v. 4.

I've tried disconnecting the internet from the Router to see if it would stop the conflicting problem (if that is indeed the problem), but it didn't work. I've tried setting up many different static IP adresses for the computer connected to the router directly, but it didn't work. I've tried nearly everything, but I just can't get it working.

I'm posting this through a computer connected through a switch to my modem.

Thanks in advance.

I'm confused. Here's the scenario. It's small office with a wireless network. They just installed a computer downstairs with one of those giant printer, scanner copier things.

I want to connect the printer to the existing network. The computer has a wireless card but the printer doesn't have wireless capabilities and needs to be plugged in via an ethernet cable. They want to be able to print to that printer from upstairs.

Should I get a wireless router and plug the printer into that or should I get an access point? Can you plug the printer into the access point? OR, should I get a wireless print server and plug the printer into one of the ethernet ports?
Thanks,

Bernie

I have a BSNL Wimax internet(India) connection. I get input from a terrace antenna to a modem(OX253P). An ethernet cable is then connected between the modem and the laptop. My internet works perfectly fine when the ethernet cable is plugged in directly to the laptop. I have also got a TP-Link TL-WR841N 300Mbps Wireless N Router. When I plug in the output from the modem (OX253P) to the WAN port(blue) on TL-WR841N my internet worked for a week via the wifi router, without any configuration.
My internet service went down for a week due to a fault. When it was restored, the internet via the modem to laptop(via an ethernet cable) works but doesn't work when I give the output of the modem(OX253P) to the wifi router WAN port. I have tried resetting both the wifi router and the modem to original settings, MAC cloning etc. but nothing seems to help. Also disabled DHCP on wifi router but no joy.
The WAN light turns off as soon as I connect to the modem via the ethernet cable. I have a feeling that something isn't right with my modem. Can someone please help?

I have a desktop and a laptop, both Windows 7 Home 64 bit, using Internet Explorer 11. The desktop is Ethernet connection, the laptop is wifi, the DSL router is wifi provided by AT&t. I really don't recall seeing the problem with the desktop, and I get it a lot with the laptop. But I don't use the desktop nearly as much.
The problem: a lot of times I will open IE 11 and click on one of it's news articles or something I want to see and it will not connect to the article or web site. I get a notice such as "The 2Wire 2701HG-B gateway does not currently detect a DSL signal". When I look at the lower taskbar where it shows wifi connections, it shows my 'handle' and says 'connected'. I'll have to close the browser, try to open it again, and after a bit I can usually get it to connect, but it sure is annoying. Occasionally I will right click and then click to open it in another tab and sometimes I can get it to open. But it seems like I have to keep fighting the connection issues. I have rebooted the router several times, it keeps happening. I'm running McAfee on the desktop, Microsoft Security on the laptop. This has been going on for months, I'm finally getting tired of it --any ideas to help is appreciated. I'm not that experienced with computers so it could be something simple and I just don't know about it. But any help is appreciated.

Hello,

So, I just got internet and cable at my apartment the other day. My roommate and I got Cox Cable and my roommate had a used Linksys router to connect to the modem. I'm not sure how the Linksys was set up (I'll get that information soon), but the internet worked for her without her having to connect her laptop to the router. When I tried to use the wifi, I was never able to connect properly. It would say that I was connected to the router, but that I wasn't able to use the internet. Then I tried to connect the laptop to the Linksys router with a ethernet cable and the internet worked. Also, after I unplug the ethernet I am able to use the internet, but the connection goes out every so often. I also wanted to use my PS3 with the wifi, but at this point I doubt it will work unless I find some solution. As for specs, the Linksys is a Model # BEFW11S4 ver. 4. Oh, and now my roommate is having the same problems now.

Internet in my PC would get disconnected, like not fully disconnected but there will be a /!\ yellow exclamation on the internet icon, not a red X. WiFi on other devices would be working. I use a cable to connect router to PC.

This would happen a few times a day or sometimes it doesn't happen in a day. I would take out the cable from the WiFi router and plug it back and the internet will then work fine.

Why does this happen?

Hi there! I'm not not really techy. I was looking for a customer support number for Tp-link but thought that this forum may be helpful since I can't find their number anywhere on the net. Im using a Tp-link wireless router and I have a modem attached to my pc. I just noticed that if I turn off my router, the Ethernet light on my modem turns off, but the power and dsl lights are still on. Is there a way for me to use my pc even if my router is turned off? If I remember right, i've tried it before and it worked... But now, I have to turn on my router just for me to be able to connect to the net on my pc.

Dell Inspiron 1750, Windows 7 x64 - no wifi access through my Windstream 2wire router.

Other devices both Mac and PC are still connecting through my router so I'm pretty sure it's in the DELL. Out of warrantee of course.

I can see networks in the "connect to a network" box but when I try to connect to them, it brings up a box that says unable to connect to network. Most of the time the wireless status icon shows 5 unlit bars with an orange dot over them.

The only suggestion from trouble shooter is reset the router by turning it off and on. No go there.

I can connect with ethernet cable with no problem.

I've tried the "flush.bat" and other suggestions in other forums with no success.

Welcome to the forum djbeede.

You appear to be connected both wired and wirelessly here, valid IP for both connections, the ipconfig/all would show me more than just ipconfig. You should unplug the Ethernet when testing the wireless as an Ethernet connection will override a wireless connection most every time.

Do you have any type of third party anti virus software installed on this system?

Have you tried resetting the router using the actual reset button on the side of the router?

Hi Jhaenine,

The problem seems to be with the wireless computer only. Because the other wireless device shows connected to the wireless network. To isolate this issue, please follow the steps given below:

1. Click on Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks (on the left hand side of the page).
2. Remove all the preferred wireless networks if any listed on the page.
3. Click on Connect to a network > select your wireless network and click connect.
4. Type in the proper wireless security keys if prompted, that would show successfully connected to the wireless network.
5. Try going online and that should work. If the problem persists, please follow the steps given below:

1. Click on Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Network Connections (on the left hand side of the page) > Right click on Wireless Network Connection > Properties > Highlight Internet Protoco Version 4 (TCP/IPV4) > Properties.
2. Select "use the following ip address" > type in the ip address in the range of 192.168.2.xxx (Where x refers to 2 to 254) > Subnet mask will be automatically 255.255.255.0 and type in the default gateway as 192.168.2.1
3. Select "use the following DNS" > type in 4.2.2.1 in the preferred and 4.2.2.2 in the alternate DNS and click ok and ok.

That must work.

I use road runner cable internet from time warner. I have a linksys wrt54g wireless router that was purchased many years ago. In our apartment, we have 3 computers. One is a desktop. The other 2 is laptops. One of the laptops we use is in a room very far from my room where the router and desktop computer is located at. The connection for the wireless is pretty bad so you have to go to the living room right next to it to get a better connection.
At first i thought i fixed this problem by upgrading the firmware as i have never did this before ever. I upgraded it to firmware version 4.21.5 for the linksys router. At first it seemed like the signal got better from that room but now its as bad as it was before.
My question is what could be the problem? I put my router on top of my desktop computer so it wouldn't be on the table where so many things could block it. Thus its at the highest point i could put the router in my room.
So i tried something different. Well i then brang my laptop to that room and went on the same site as the other computer and went to load the same streaming videos. My laptop however... the connection was faster than the other laptop in that room which is far away from where the desktop/router is at. Basically you can't even stream a video in that room most of the time but my laptop could.
Does that mean that my router isn't the problem since the wireless signal works fine for my laptop there whereas the inspiron 15r goes much slower... Read more

A:Wifi Signal Not Strong Enough- Router or Laptop Problem?

Someone suggested to take the router out of my room and bring it to the living room so it would be closer to that laptop. I was going to do this but i cannot b/c there is a wire that connects from my cable modem to this other thing. I'm not sure what its called but basically it is connected to these wires on the top in my hallway. Does anyone know what that is called?

Someone suggested i could buy a usb wireless adapter like this

http://www.amazon.com/Medialink--15...&qid=1362007920&sr=1-1&keywords=wireless+card
Does that mean plugging this into that computer possibly could make the connection stronger in that room? I'm thinking that the reason has to be because that laptops wireless card isn't strong like mine which is why? But would buying this solve the problem?

Someone said buy another router because my router is very old and to get an N router. Should i do this instead? The thing is i'm thinking its not the router fault as my wireless is fine with my laptop in that room. thoughts on this? And if i should do this, can someone recommend me a wireless router that has good range? There are soo many routers on amazon.com with good/bad reviews and it seems like the good reviews they have, there are tons of bad ones as well.
Someone said my other option would be to buy some wireless extender. I checked amazon but aren't these basically wireless router with an extender?

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Try refreshing your wireless network profiles by removing all of them then just add your own SSID (wireless network).
Wireless Network - Remove

If that didn't help, you may changing your wireless security (WEP, WPA or WPA2), make sure that you are on WPA2, it's the safest and most secured.

A:Connected to wifi router, can't connect to internet

According to this you should have a connection so something may be blocking the connection like an Anti Virus software.

Does it show up as connected but the browsers won't go anywhere? If so I have something for that.

I have a ASUS E56U i5 notebook computer with Windows 7 Home Ultimate. A few days ago it just stopped getting internet. I get the error: No DNS server detected. I tryed the hardwired connection, and it worked fine. Then I set up my Netgear
signal extender and connected to my router through it and it worked fine. I don't normaly use the extendor as I live in a small one bedroom appartment. It's for other locations. I have researched this problems and followed over a dozen diffrent instructions to flush DNS and disable some other stuff, etc. Nothing works.
I have AVG free antivirus, but it has never interfered with my internet on any of my computers.
The computer is a few months old. It came with Mcaffee, but I uninstalled it. So that couldn't be it.
Please help.
Let me know if you need any other data.

A:Connected to WiFi router but no internet acess!

If you had McAfee you will want to run it's special uninstaller tool.

McAfee Removal Tool - McAfee Uninstaller

A few problems I noticed at that you have 2 Msoft Virtual WiFi mini port adaptors enabled, you should disable both of them as they aren't used unless you set up a hosted wireless network.

Another possible problem is that you seem to have a default gateway showing up where the DNS servers should be.

Is there secondary router in this network or did you type the default gateway into the DNS settings for some reason?

It may help to type the DNS servers into the routers settings then remove the entries from the IPv4 properties.

It also appears that you typed a DNS server into your WINS at the IPv4 properties, WINS isn't used much anymore so removing that entry might be wise.

Ok, your W7 machine is using the USB wifi, and your XP is using the home wifi (ie through your router). I cannot see why your W7 can't use both the USB wifi AND router wifi. Matter of fact it should work from connections point of view. I tried it on my eeepc, with a USB modem attached.

If you are just sharing files from your W7 and Xp, you don't need to be on the internet. That said if both machine can see each other, everything you wanted should be fine. Just create shared folder to be shared between the machines, and surf the net from either. However why do u want to use the USB wifi for internet when you can use your router's?

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 with Windows 7. I have been using Time Warner Internet. It worked fine until yesterday. WiFi stopped working out of the blue. When I tried, wired connection works pretty well. I do not recall any significant changes to my computer while this happened. So now I can connect to the wifi hotspot but it says "No Internet Connection". When I connect the LAN wire with the WiFi router, internet works. The moment I remove it, it says No Internet Access, although computer is connected to the hotspot and signal is very well.

The drivers are being shown as up to date in device manager.

I tried following instructions given here: http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-Winsock-and-TCP/IP
This didn't work. Problem persists.

I have been through some threads around here. This is the ipconfig output:

Hi All,
I have established a Virtual Wifi Miniport and would like to share my laptops internet via the Miniport. Whenever I connect my android phone with this access point, it works perfectly for a few minutes and then all of a sudden there is no internet on the phone. The phone remains connected to the laptop hotspot but the internet access is no more there. Now at this point if I disconnect the connection between my phone and the hotspot and then again try to reconnect back again, it wont even connect. The phone will keep on searching and shows connecting status but can never connect. I have tried all sorts of softwares connectify, virtual router, intel mywifi and even tried to create a hotspot from the cmd using netsh command. All the hotspots work in the exact same way intially works perfect but maybe after half an hour internet is gone. I have completed all the steps properly even changed the settings in the laptop adapter with interet access to allow other networks to connect but nothing seems to work. I have a Windows 7 Machine and my wireless adapter is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless N-100 and the drivers are up to date according to windows. I know that its a problem with my laptop/OS or something because my android phone can connect and remain connected( without losing internet ) to the connectify hotspot in my wifi enabled desktop PC.I am breaking my head over this for the past 15 days even formatted my system once but no use. Please help if you can..please!

I would like to take and existing web connection thats on a laptop and send it to a new Netgear wireless modem providing an internet connection for devices out of the wifi modem. My original connection is from a DSL modem and is connected via wifi to my laptop. Here is what i tried so far: The router i want to use now is connected to my laptop via Ethernet cable and goes into the Wan port of the router. First i simply turned on sharing on my existing wifi connection and the internet icon on the router is green but when i go to status of the router it says no web connection and devices such as an ipod don't receive any internet. Next i tried to bridge the connection but that did not work either even though my laptop showed that they were bridged.

Please help as i have spent 8 hours on this already.

Sounds like you need a driver update for your Wifi Adapter i would go to the ASUS site and check if they have any updates for your particular machine

If that doesn't fix the issue you might need to do a system restore to where it was working also check if the protocol has been changed from Wifi to fixed connection

I have a home network with an XP 64, and Linux SUSE 11.1 64 bit, hard wired to a Netgear WGR614v7 router connected to Clearwire wireless modem. I've connected to the network with an old laptop with Cisco wifi card. I had minimum problems connecting with the early wifi.

I just bought a new laptop with Vista, soon to be Win 7 I hope. When I try and connect to the network with wifi, I get limited access. I'm running WEP, authentication - automatic, 128 bit, and have typed the same "passphrase" more than once on both the router and in Vista. I'm not familar with WEP, and Vista. The problem seems to be in Vista authenticating the passphrase. If I could clear the network setup in Vista that would be a good start.

Hi,

I recently bought dlink D2750U WIFI ADSL modem/router, for my ADSL internet connection.

But I have now changed my ISP, who provide internet via cable(not telephone line). The ISP guy provides a cable modem(old modem) along with it.

I have connected my PC this way:
Cable modem -> Router -> PC through RJ45. I am able to access internet from my PC, but I am not able to get wifi working on the router. And I am logging onto internet through a dial up connection.
Questions:
1) Please help in configuring the router to get wifi working.
2) Also, my default gateway seems to be either 0.0.0.0 or blank. So, I am not able to login to the modem unless I remove the modem connection. Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong here.

Here are a few more details:

A:Using dlink D2750U Wifi Modem/Router As a Wifi Router

Hey Narain. The D-Link unit you have appears to be a combo unit (modem and wireless router) since it connects straight to the RJ-11 phone line. This unit won't work with an ISP that provides service by way of coax cable. The D-Link will work if you want to use DSL, but you need a cable service compatible modem or combo modem/router if you use cable service.

I have never run into this before.

I have a dsl modem/gateway (actiontec) which i use to connect to the internet

when I connected a Linksys WRT54G v.4 router to my laptop thru RJ45, WITH wifi disabled on the router, I lose connectivity to the internet on the wifi connection.

I'm used to XP with independent connectoids. Looking at the properties on each connection, they appear to be correct.

Has anyone run into this on Vista?

I thought surely by disco'g the wifi on the Linksys Router it should just be a standard wired connection.

both routers are setup for DHCP. Is that what's confusing Vista?

weird. appreciate any help. I am so out of troubleshooting ideas.

Hi brhanse,

Can you give us the make and model of the router. Also, do each of the computers connect directly via a cable to the back of the router; (example, there are 4 ports on the back of the router and each port has it's own cable leading to each computer) or, does the router connect to a switch and the other computers connect to the router through the switch?

Has this suddenly happened or have their been intermittent issues with connectivity recently?

Hey everyone, sorry if this is in wrong area.

So today I bought a secondhand computer. It's a Toshiba Satelite L875D-S7230.

When I connect it to my home wifi it connects no problem and says 'internet access' when I hover over the icon. However when I open open google chrome or internet explorer and type in a site, it takes a little while then says this page cannot be displayed or this web page is unavailable.

The guy I bought it from says he had no issues. And I know it's not the internet because I'm using the internet to post this from phone.
I've tried a few ideas that worked for other people on other forums like using cmd box but to no avail.

Has anyone got any idea why the computer is being such a turd?? Can anyway give advice on how to fix the problem? Thank you all so much!

Sony Vaio Laptop
Running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, Service Pack 1

First let me say that I LOVE Bleeping Computer and have researched many topics over the years, but have never needed to post because I always have been able to find my answers by reading. This is my first real shout out for help, and any that you guys can give will really be appreciated.

My Netgear router logs have been showing an unknown mac address connecting ever since I set it up a few months ago (when we moved in to a new home). I'm running WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security. I originally thought maybe one of my neighbors was sniffing/hacking, so I set up MAC filtering for the WiFi. The logs now constantly (every 4-15 minutes with long breaks occasionally) show the MAC being "denied access" to the router. I thought I was done, but have been annoyed that the connection attempts continue even after months of blocked access. Then the plot thickened...

I ended up changing my WiFi password just to beef up security a little. The router logs then showed my X-Box being "rejected" due to incorrect security (since it had not been changed to the new pw). It occurred to me that the router logs actually differentiated between incorrect security and denial of access... which meant that the attempting hack actually HAS the security password even though I'm running WPA2. To verify my problem, I changed the security password again and only allowed two laptops access to the router.... Read more

A:Router Logs Show an Extra/UNKNOWN WiFi MAC Address - Coming from a KNOWN Laptop

Re: "My Netgear router logs have been showing an unknown mac address connecting"
How do you know it is a WI-FI address (Thread title says it's Wi-Fi)?
Hey, how about quoting the exact message Netgear puts in the log.
Yes, I know Netgear's logs are dreadful. They don't show port nor protocol involved, still seeing an exact message might help.

There is such a thing as MAC address spoofing, but whether it plays a role here, I can't tell.

Is it only in the log or does it show up in the wired or wireless section of Active Device list?

I don't know why you suspect your laptop since you're saying these are inbound attempts.

Are those connection attempts occuring when the Lexmark printer is off or totally disconnected from the router?

If the data in the log matches your printer's MAC address, than my guess is normal activity of the printer announcing its presence on the network. And since it's not a wi-fi printer, your MAC filtering doesn't seem relevant.

If MAC is all you see in the log, and no IP, perhaps it's trying to get an IP from the router - do you have a LAN range of IPs setup that might be too narrow for all your gear?

Are you able to print?

Sorry for no help, but I thought I'd ask for some clarifications to this confusing story.

Comcast does not supply Routers. They only supply Modems and there is NO WiFi in any Cable Modem. At least that is how it is on my Comcast connection and I supplied my own modem and router.

You need a Real Router with WiFi as what you are doing now is getting a Public IP address from the Modem when the system is Wired to the modem.

So run out and buy a router. While you are out shut the modem down, power it off. When you get back with your WiFi Router connect your PC to it, without connecting it to the modem, and go into the setup system and assign a different Logon password to the main section of the router and then the WiFi section and put in a SSID and password for the WiFi. Once all that is done then connect the router to the modem and power the modem up. The WAN/Internet port of the router will get the Comcast assign Public IP and your PC will get a Private IP address from the routers DHCP server. Whether it is connected by wire or WiFi.

I have a new router connected to my internet from FIOS. I was sick of the ActionTec router requiring a reboot every few days in order to get it to hand out ip addresses again, so I purchased a Ubiquiti edgmax router. After changing the MAC address of the
router to match the MAC address of the actiontec router, I was able to get it functioning. Sadly, that's when the weirdness began. I am able to connect to the internet fine on almost all my devices. I have two Roku streaming media players and an Ooma Ip phone
box that connect to the internet fine with the new router. All my iOS devices connect fine to the internet. I have a dual boot desktop connected via Ethernet and when I boot to Linux, it connects to the internet fine. If I reboot to Win7 (same exact hardware!),
there is no internet connection. I can see the other devices in the network map (I see the Brother printer and the Roku boxes) that are on this side of the firewall, but Internet access past the firewall is not available (red X between router and Internet).
I have done a virus scan using both MalwareBytes and AVG (in safe mode), and there are no virus found by either. I can reconnect the crappy Actiontec router and everything is fine. I also tried bringing the router, wifi access point and Win7 laptop (that
was NOT connecting to the internet at my home) to my office and connected it all here, and it works fine!

Hi all - you might notice this is my first post here, so patience is appreciated
So here's my story...I have cable internet through Cox, renting a Netgear CG3000D gateway from them. Starting about a month after installation the internet started freezing over wifi. I say freezing because it would just suddenly stop, and the only way to get it to start coming through again is to reset wifi from the device. This happens with every device we use...smartphones, tablets, laptops, wii, and lately it's been at least a dozen times a day. I've spent hours on the phone with Cox, had their techs out to the house three times now, and still no solution. I'll admit that I'm no expert when it comes to this stuff, but I really don't appreciate them charging me $50 a pop to come to my house and ask if I tried resetting the modem, suggesting I just unplug it for a minute, tell me it's working fine after they hold a signal on their phone for 10 seconds...one spent a couple hours knocking around outside before coming back in to say he ran all new cables, drilled holes through my house to move the modem to a better spot, and everything should be fine. It's not.
Anyway...after hours of research online I'm convinced the problem is somewhere in the modem's settings, or just a faulty modem. I've lost hope in getting any help from Cox, so am here hoping that someone with some real knowledge can help me. There are no issues with the wifi signal it... Read more

Can anyone please help me to solve this problem. I Just want to use the Wireless Broadband (USB Dongle) to have an internet connection while am also wired to CDR King LP-8186 router (without buying new router that can accomodate both)

Laptop - Win7 OS wifi capable
2 Desktop - Win XP SP3 no wifi just LAN Card

Thank you in advance.

My internet stopped working for all the softwares but Google Chrome. I searched some solutions online but I ended up making the situation worse and now I can't even connect to the wifi.
Basically I put the password and it connects, but the wifi icon has the yellow exclamation mark and it says "Unidentified network, no internet access".

I already tried uninstalling the network adapters from the Device Manager.. What should I do?

Thank you!

There are our laptops being used in this house, one of which (Dell Inspiron) won't connect to the WiFi. It also has a habit of shutting down. There is no WiFi problem with the other three. I have tried Googling the problem but nothing of much use was found.
 
Help would be much appreciated.  Thank you.

A:Can't access WiFi or internet. Help please.

Really silly question - but the wi-fi on this Inspiron is enabled ?  Surprising how often the obvious gets overlooked.
 
Go into 'Device Manager' and look for any yellow exclamation marks against your wi-fi adapter - click 'Start - RIGHT click on 'Computer' - click 'Properties' - click Device manager in the top left hand corner'. You will see an item 'Network adapters' with a + beside it. Click on the '+' to expand it and you should see your wi-fi adapter listed. If it has any sort of mark against it, double click on it and see if you can find any info on the problem. In any case, make a note of the maker and model. Problems in this area are usually caused by the drivers. Uninstall the drivers for it, and on another computer, go to the Dell web-site and download the wi-fi drivers for your Inspiron, copy them to some convenient location on the faulty computer then install them. Re-boot, and with any luck your wi-fi will be working again.
 
It is possible that the wi-fi unit itself has failed. If it is not physically built into the motherboard it may be possible to replace it with a new one. But the simplest and cheapest solution I have found is to use an external USB wi-fi dongle. These are widely available and fairly cheap, starting at under £UK 20 and going up.

I have a modem/router that let's me access internet in a laptop or cellphone through wifi but in PC connected directly to network there seems to be a DNS issue or something that loads a page 1 out of 100 times and getting worse every day until no page will load for hours or take a huge time to load. Tried a lot of methods but none made a difference. flushdns and other commands, winsockspfix, edited and changed registry keys winsock and winsock2 with ''correct" ones. Rebooted modem but issue is on PC only and perfect on wifi as a matter of fact i'm on the Wifi connection at this time. Im new at techguy so sorry if there is any mistake with this post.

Hello,
 
I let my friend borrow my laptop for the past couple of days and when he returned it to me, she told me that the Internet stopped working. After taking a look at it for the last couple of days, I'm pretty confident that it's a virus of some kind. These are some of the details I've uncovered by browsing around the Control Panel, Command Prompt, and Task Manager.
 
1. "ipconfig" only shows 3 lines of information
            - Tunnel adapter 6TO4 Adapter
            - Media State . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
            - Connection-specific DNS Suffix . 
 
2. Going to Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network Connections, if I right-click my wireless network connection and click status and then details...the pop-up window is completely blank.
 
3. Opening Task Manager then going to the Networking tab shows only "No Active Network Adapters Found."
 
4. My Panda Antivirus, I believe, has been disabled. I cannot get the window to pop up at all.
 
5. Going to Device Manager and enabling "Show hidden devices", the following has the yellow '!' caution symbol under non plug-and-play drivers (NNSAlpc, NNSHttp, NNSids, NNSPicc, NNSPop3, NNSProt, NNSPrv, NNSSmtp, NNSStrm, NNSTlsc, PSINAflt, PSINKnc, PSINProt).

The wireless dropping out may be a completely different problem but there is a Group Policy setting to enable both connections at start up.

Windows doesn't typically use both connections at once and it defaults to the faster connection if both are enabled which is usually Ethernet connection, but if you want the wireless to connect automatically at boot up and stay connected with the Ethernet connection there is setting you need to disable in Group Policy.

Go to start/run type in gpedit.msc. Navigate to the following location

Administrative templates/Network/Windows Connection Manager . The setting Minimize the number of simultaneous connections to the internet.

For more than one connection to stay connected reliably this setting needs to be disabled.

I've been using this Policy to test wireless signals with my Ethernet connected and it does work so that both connections are enabled at start up and they both stay up.

I had to connect the wireless manually on start up most of the time before I changed this setting.

If the wireless issue persists, then please to install InSSIDer from the link and post the results here so I can take a look at the wireless landscape in your area.

Hi guys, I have this problem that's been giving me a headache these days... I have a Dell XPS L502x with Intel centrino n6230 in tow.
Well, the laptop was working fine and all but started to have this weird connection drops in my work now and then, I blamed the router. Then it started loosing connection in my home too, it shows that the WiFi is connected and when I hover over the WiFi icon it says "internet access" but whenever I tried to access a webpage it won't connect... I blamed the network adapter and tried reinstalling and reinstalling the drivers and changing settings but none of it worked.
It literally is driving me crazy, but before I refresh the system I wanted to see if you guys can help me out!

A:HELP! WiFi connected but cannot access internet!

If you really do have internet access you should be able to ping a DNS server located somewhere outside your network. open a command prompt, Start > run > enter "cmd" and hit enter. type in "ping 8.8.8.8" if you get a response in replies you know that its technically working and connected to the internet.

I just installed WiFi at my house. I can connect on my smartphone and by ethernet cable and the Internet works great. I can also connect to the WiFi on my laptop, but the Internet does not work. My homepage will come up but I can't go to any other sites. My computer does not have this problem with any other WiFi networks.

I've read a lot of old threads on this site about similar problems; I can't figure out what's wrong, though. I'm a total dummy when it comes to this stuff. Can someone help?

Based on what I've read, here's some quick info that might be useful:
1) HP Pavilion laptop
