Internet not working on pc, but working on wireless laptop

Q: Internet not working on pc, but working on wireless laptop

I have a motorola modem (SB5102) and a D-Link Router (WBR-1310). I have a pc which is connected to the modem and the router with wires. From this afternoon there is no internet connection on my pc. The icon on the bottom right says unindentified network, Access: Local Only. But my laptop, which is connected wirelessly, is working fine. it has good internet connection and everything. All my other wireless devices are also working fine. But only my pc (which is connected with cables to the modem and router), is not getting any internet. Can anyone please help me with this weird problem. Thanks!

Both the pc and laptop have Windows Vista.

I did nothing to make it stop working. I was on the internet, stepped away, came back, and couldn't connect. I checked the online connection (by clicking the little icon in the bottom right part of the screen) and it came up with an error. I went to Device Manager, and there is a "!" next to LAN-Express IEEE 802.11 PCI Adapter. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, but the "!" is still there.

Did the actual hardware break somehow? Is there anything I should do before bringing it back to where I bought it? I've only had it for a few months, and never before had a problem

A:HELP!! new laptop and wireless network but no working internet!

Click Start, Control Panel then Network Connections. You should have a Wireless connection there. Double click it. Click View Wireless Networks and you should have a wireless network there. If not click refresh network list on the left. If you do have one shown click on advanced settings then wireless settings. Click on Advanced make sure Any Available Network is checked. If more that one wireless network is showing you have to move your Up to the first position. Also do you have Wep Or Wap enabled? If so you would have to enter the key. Also make sure you are close to your wireless router when doing this to rule out a weak signal.

Hello guys

a very annoying problem I have eversince I got wireless internet in 2004. My internet just randomly stops working, mostly when I boot my laptop or when I get it out off standby. This is what happens:

I try to connect to my router, but Windows says "cannot connect to belkin54g" (SSID). The strange thing is, I had the same with my old Windows XP computer years ago, but back then I had a Linksys router. My current router is a Belking (no idea what model).

Also very weird is the fact that my internet monitor (I installed a Windows 7 desktop gadget) shows that the connection is being interrupted all the time. It goes from 33% signal strength to 100% in 3 seconds but after another 3 seconds the signal is lost and the gadget is displaying 0% signal strength. Though the LED on my router's WLAN is not red, nor are any other LED's colored red.

Can someone pleaaaaaaaaaaase help me out? I got this problem for years and years. I've also configured my network card not to go in standby modus whenever the laptop is in standby, this didn't work out the way I've hoped.

One more thing, once I am connected to the router and have access to the internet, there is no problem anymore and I can be online for like 1 month without rebooting or whatever. But sometimes when I reboot/come back out of standby it just doesn't work and I need to reboot again. Sometimes it still doesn't work after rebooting so I reboot again and then it is mostly working, but it is so *beep* annoying... Read more

I spent about an hour going through similar posts here but didn't really find what I needed. I'm hoping this is just something stupid on my part.
Here's the deal:
My sons laptop crashed. I did what I could to recover it but, no good. Was able to recover his important files (from help I got here) so I picked up a new harddrive (WD60gig) and installed WINXP Pro fresh.

My desktop is hardwired from a Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband router that is connected to cablevision via a 3Com U.S. Robotics modem.

The problem now is trying to get an internet connection on the laptop.

Prior to the crash, he was able to connect using the wireless router.

I've tried going directly to the laptop from the modem just to get an internet connection but I haven't got that to happen yet.

Do I need to install the 3com modem software on the laptop?

I just installed Norton Antivrus 2005 on the Desktop.

How do I check for Firewall issues?

Any help is appreciated. Even just a pointer to a good article might do it.
Thanks.

When I try and access the internet through any of the main browsers (I.e. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari) they tell me along the lines of 'unable to access the network' and 'this page can't be displayed' after taking a while attempting to load. I also cannot access it through any of my Windows 8 apps. I know it's not an issue with the home broadband itself and is something to do with my laptop as it is running fine both wirelessly and through using an Ethernet cable on all other devices. I would really appreciate some help with trying to fix this asap as I have spent a lot of time researching this issue and trying most things to resolve it without success, I also need to use the internet for loads of coursework over the summer hols and cannot afford to be taking it to a pricey IT technician.

If so, leave the comments and the localhost line and delete everything else.

If you modify the hosts file, then you also need to

I have a HP laptop that runs windows Vista Premium, and is connected to an old Netgear wireless router, with which a broadband modem is connected to.

I have had this setup for nearly two years, and has been running great, including this morning. However tonight I cannot get the laptop to connect to the internet. I have had a couple of weird issues before, but restarting the computer has always fixed it. This time I have restarted everything, and I can access other computers on the network (not wireless) but not the internet.

Strangely, a hard drive that is connected to another computer that is shared for my backups is also not being found. (the other computer is plugged into the router through an ethernet cable, and internet works fine).

MSN, Explorer and the like will not connect to the net. Interestingly, when I start Mozilla Firefox, which loads a simplified google homepage, after a long long time, loads about hald way.

Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be, I dont know what to do or try, because I havent seemed to change anything to stop it working. Any ideas I could try would be much appreciated.

A:internet not working on lan but working with wireless card?

I would suggest connecting with your wireless card and going to windows update and seeing if you have all the updates for your operating system. Look in the Optional updates for hardware drivers that may fix the yellow exclamation marks, as they may be the problem. If the yellow marks don't go away, google that problem "how to get rid of yellow exclamation marks in Device manager".
You may want to disconnect your wireless card, plug in your ethernet cable, and then power cycle your modem, router, and computer. Turn them all off, then power each of them up, waiting a minute between each one. Start with your modem, then your router, then your computer. Post your results.

Hi there, im new to the forums and i've got a problem that's been a real pain for me lately.
I've got a wireless connection in my house going through a Linksys WRT54GC router and also a wired connection with Cisco gateway (only 1 laptop uses it). About 1 month ago some strange things began to happen with the wireless connection, my PC seems not to be able to connect unless I reinstall the protocols and it's really annoying to do that every time I run my PC. Also, the wired connection stopped working (probably because of cable being broken) but it requires a router restart 90% of the time when I want to connect the laptop (that used to connect through cable) to the wireless network. The 2nd laptop has an issue mentioned in the title, the LAN works but it can't connect to the Internet through the router. Ipconfig /all shows that DHCP isn't working, there's no default gateway and DNS seems to be wrong. Could that all be related to router not being updated for a long time? I tried reinstalling drivers, unistalling and installing back network card and doing most of the things mentioned in similar threads but nothing seems to work. I know it all looks very silly but I can't do anything about it, at least now - I don't have access to any router settings and can't update it.
Every bit of help is appreciated. I can paste all the information needed from all computers.

Hi, I have just got an EZCast home multimedia wireless sharing device. It works great from my acer laptop and from my android phone. HTC one! My problem is that it works as an access point so both my phone and my laptop need to connect as clients. when I do this I have no connection to the internet anymore.
I have a great deal with my telecoms provider in Ireland and get umlimited BB over G4 so I use the HTC either in wifi hotspot mode or Bluetooth PAN to connect to the internet on my laptop (and wireless printer).
Either way when I connect to the EZCast access point I have no internet. The phone sees a wireless network and shuts down my mobile data connection and my laptop can only connect to one wireless point at a time. When I do bluetooth tethering and I am connected to the EZCast AP, I can still see that I am connected to the BT PAN but I have no adapter to connect it to so no internet. I tried to bridge the PAN and the WIFI but forums are telling me that you can't do this with Windows 7 anymore. I have noticed that there is a virtual miniport in Windows and I was wondering would it be possible to use this. I know I could buy a USB Wifi dongle and that would be it but it must be possible some other other way. The networks don't havce to talk to eachother. I need to get internet on the laptop and then at the same time be able to connect to my TV via the EZast Wifi. Hope someone can help. It's my first post her so hope I have given enough info.

Good Morning - Any help is appreciated.

I purchased a new HP laptop (G42 41 5DX) with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 BIT. When connecting to wireless, it says limited access and is not working. However, when connecting via the ethernet cord, I can get online with no problem. We own a desktop and another laptop which connects to the wireless without any problems so I know that the signal is fine. Verizon Fios is my ISP and my router is an Actiontec MI424WR Rev E.

I've tried a hard reset of the router (leaving it unplugged) but this has not fixed the problem.

Any advice?

A:Wireless not working on new laptop

You will want to go into the network and sharing center on your Win7 machine.

Choose the option to set up a new connection use the manual wireless set up then designate your routers settings when you do that. Win 7 likes to use WPA2-PSK security and AES encrytion. You also need to type in your SSID and your wireless password.

It's also important to go back into your routers wireless settings after you reset your router to create the SSID and password, you will also need to select the security and encryption again. Use those settings when you set up your Win7 wireless connection.

After installing IE8 (internet explorer 8) my wireless adapter stopped working on my HP530 XP laptop. This happened before after another Automatic update from Microsoft that required me to uninstall the update to get it working again.

This time after IE8 the wireless remained dead after uninstallation. All drivers from HP failed, the HP-site tests failed and HP service guys had no idea to fix it. Eventually they told me to bring it in, minimum cost R2000 ($250)

It happened before, so i searched and found a driver that fixed it, this is what i learned:
1. If the adapter is missing from your Device manager, but lights up for a moment just after startup, it is probably not fried, but needs to be recognised by windows again.
2. HP can not help you to fix it and will take your money and it will happen again...soon
3. Use this link for a Broadcom Wireless Driver (another for Vista is on the same site):
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-63623.html
4. The driver filename is: 63wb05ww.exe
5. Read the installation instructions carefully, do not just run it, reboot, and the little blue light will shine again!
6. Make sure your BIOS is up to date.

Hope this helps, and stick it to HP for selling us laptops that they KNOW have this adapter problem.

My old thread, I decided to just re-post as the old one was cluttered.

Wireless suddenly stopped working on my laptop.
I have a Compaq 6715B, and yesterday while I was browsing the web, my wireless stopped working, it gave me a notification in the "Safely Remove Hardware" thing near the clock, "The blah blah blah Network adapter can now be safely removed".
The wireless hasn't been working ever since.
The troubleshooting that I've done so far are:
Make sure the wireless button on the computer is enabled, it will not enable, it is a "touch" button, and it lights up blue when it's working, it won't even respond to my touch, the other buttons next to it do work. So that's not helping at all.
I have two of the exact same laptop, I switched the wireless card that's installed INSIDE the laptop, not a wireless card that just slides in the side, one that's under the bottom panel, I swapped them, uninstalled the driver, and connected via. ethernet to reinstall the drivers. No dice.
It's not showing up in the device manager or anything..Click to expand...

I've swapped the card itself, swapped the whole LED board (the board with the power button, wireless button, etc)
Nothing seems to work..

I was running Windows 7, and just switched back to Windows XP, SP3.

Help is very very greatly appreciated, thanks in advance..

I have an Acer TravelMate 290 (running XP) and have recently installed a BT broadband homehub. I initially had no problems accessing the wireless network but then my PC stopped detecting any wireless networks - as though the radio was off. Now I cannot switch my radio on - the switch on the PC is not working at all. The problem began once I brought the PC out of hibernation after having (accidently) switched the homehub off and on.

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the BT software, updating the wireless driver (from the Acer website) - all with no success.

Something that may or may not be relevant is that I also recently installed a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse onto the laptop.

Has anybody experienced similar problems or have any suggestions? Advice gratefully received.

A:Wireless has stopped working on laptop

Go to the Device Manager and uninstall the driver for the network adapter. Restart the laptop and Windows should reinstall the driver automatically. See if this clears up the problem. If not, it might have failed. You could try going to Add and Remove Programs (if XP) or Programs and Features (if Vista or W7) and uninstall the LAN driver if one is there and install a fresh driver from Sony.

If none of that works, consider getting a USB wireless adapter.

A:Solved: wireless not working on laptop

Remove ALL the stored wireless network profiles and then search for the network. You should be prompted for the encryption key.

If you still have issues, let's see this.

Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Items:
Apple Ibook , osx10, built in airport
router: d-link wireless router

problem:
apple ibook hooks up via wireless to my friends wireless routers, but not to my own........my mothers pc hooks up fine to my wireless router, but not my mac.......the laptop recognizes the router as it appears in the list yet it says its connected but nothing works (internet/messenger programs) ......when i hook up to the router on my mac via wire, it works fine..........so my router works and the airport works (as seen on my friends' routers)

anyone know wuts going on?
 

A:Laptop or wireless router not working?

Is your mothers PC being hooked up wirelessly or wired? If wireless I would look at the possibility of some type of encryption setup that may not be configured on the MAC. If its being hooked up wired maybe your router itself is having wireless problems?

I have a Dell laptop (Win7 Home Premium, 64Bit) and it seems like it always has difficulty connecting to WiFi routers that are using 802.11g. I have a Wireless-N card on my laptop and I would think it would be backwards compatible, right??
I'm the same person, with the same laptop, as this post: http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1079721-dns-lookup-failed.html
and all the symptoms that I was trying to solve in that post are relevant again.
At the time that post was made, I lived in an apartment and the modem/router from my cable company was wireless-G and my laptop seemed to experience intermittent DNS problems. I could never REALLY use the internet for very long, but sometimes some websites would seem to load, but usually pictures would have a problem. Other times the seemingly DNS issue would not let me load any websites at all. While I was on vacation I was able to connect perfectly to 2 different WiFi networks. I know for sure that one of them was Wireless-N (not sure about the other one).
Eventually I moved and my new modem/router from my new cable company was Wireless-N. My computer has connected to that network perfectly for months. Now, on vacation again, I tried to connect to a "G" network again and all the old problems came back EXACTLY as they were before.
Is it possible that my Wireless-N card has that much trouble connecting to Wireless-G networks? If so, is there any fix??

The signal is too weak for a reliable connection. Try closer to the router.

The variation in the signal strength indicates probable incorrect driver or defective adapter or router (or wireless access point). Try the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site. If that does not work right try the driver directly from Intel's site.

If possible check Xirrus with another computer, or another adapter, to see if the router is having difficulty maintaining a constant signal strength (a variation of one or two dBm is OK).

If your network is encrypted, disable the encryption and try to connect. If successful, re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Hi,

I have a Sky broadband connection using a Netgear Super Wireless Router UOM which connects perfectly with my wireless enabled Toshiba laptop.

The problem has been trying to get my PC to talk to the router. I bought a Belkin Wireless G USB adapter (F5D7050)a few weeks ago and with some help from Belkin's helpline eventually got it working. However, within a few days it stopped working and after many long and expensive phone calls to Belkin's support desk, ended up with a new USB Adapter (same model) but which still will not connect. I've been battling with this for the last two weeks and have given up on Belkin support.

My laptop continues to work perfectly with the router. However, the Belkin Wireless Monitor dialogue box shows it's connected to the network (it shows the SSID), Encryption: TKIP, Link speed 36 Mbits/sec. Signal strength and link quality are at 60%. The IP information section in the same dialogue box shows Disabled under DHCP status while there is nothing next to current IP, subnet mask, default gateway or DNS server. The link information box shows there is a link between the computer and the router, but no link between router and internet.

Big problems in Control Panel, Network & Internet Connections, Network Connections where there is nothing under name, type, status or device name - only white space.

When I try Start/Run/CMD/ipconfig.exe I get the following message:
ipconfig.exe: the procedure entry point HrIsIpStateChecking... Read more

My wireless isn't working so I'm having to use an ethernet cable or a USB adaptor. It wont even show in device manager it only shows the LAN. I've made sure that it's turned on.

A:Wireless Adaptor in laptop not working

its possible theres an option to disable in the bios

BUT Try reseating the wireless adapter

If the adapter is easily accessible, usually through a cover on the bottom of the laptop.
Remove and reinsert it carefully and firmly to make sure it is not loose.
Then remove and carefully and firmly replace it several times to cure any possible looseness or corrosion.
At the same time check to make sure the antenna leads are securely attached.
Note: This is not taking the machine apart. We do not recommend removing the keyboard when that is necessary to find the wireless.

Ok, I am sure this is on these forums somewhere, but I don't have time to seach through 4,000 pages looking for this answer, sorry.
Anyway, I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop with a Zonet 802.11g Wireless CardBus Adapter. I recently moved across the US, and found the wireless to work in various internet hotspots around the country. Since arriving at my sister's house, where she has Verizon Wireless, I cannot access her wireless internet. I get the 'limited or no connectivity' message. I can see the network, I have put in the WEP key, and nothing. I can hardwire to the router using an Ethernet cable, and it works fine, but the wireless does not work. Repair yields a "Unable to renew your IP address" message; i've tried ipconfig /release and /renew, to no effect. I tried running the disc that came with her Verizon wireless, and again, nothing. I know a bit about this, and i am stumped. Why does it work everywhere else but here?

I purchased a new PC (Lenevo ideacentre e700 AOI) about two weeks ago. On an inital set up everything was running, fine did all the updates and was able to access the internet. I did not use the PC for around a week, and when attempting to try it the internet would not connect. I noticed that it was not showing any wifi options at all. I went to device manager and an exclamation mark was showing on our wifi network adapter which is a Intel dual band (cant remember the rest and now my device manager wont load at all to find). I took it back to the shop they looked at it and said it's probably just the drivers, however these are up to date. They ran the lenovo support and nothing come back wrong and the wifi connected to the stores wifi. The technician told use to just disable and enable with any troubles as would give a kick start. When we got home the wifi still wouldn't connect, tried to disable/enable however it wasn't even showing on the device manager, after a couple of times it finally appeared so we did the disable/enable however it sitll would not work. Now my pc won't load device manager at all.

Any recommendations, otherwise we will take the PC back to the shop.

Hello,

I was stupidly playing around with the properties of my wireless internet connection (changing from open to shared etc etc). Now I have a problem where the internet does not automatically connect to my wireless network, and when I manually connect it, it seems to work for about 20 mins, then disconnect.

Also, rather oddly, when 'connected' it still says that its disconnected.

Does this make sense?

Help!

kind regards, Rob

Hi, I'm in desperate need of help here. I go to college and I usually connect to the internet through an ethernet chord. I decided to come home for a weekend, and I could not connect to the wireless internet, even though every other laptop in the house was connecting fine. I have an HP Pavilion Notebook dv2000 and there is a WLAN switch. When I turn the switch on, the light should turn blue, but it remains orange. It seems that the wireless driver has been completely deleted from my computer! My computer also says "media disconnected" which I know it shouldnt...

Hello!

My friend has asked me for help, i've already had her call her router company and they just hung up on her. as did her ISP.

She runs on a Windows XP system with wireless internet.

Her problem:

1 Desktop PC
2 Laptops

One of the laptops is unable to access the internet via browser. She can ping her router and gets replies in the 200ms. The internet says it's connected, but she can't connect to it.

She has made sure the internet switch is on, has restarted all the computers in the house (including her laptop which isn't picking up the signal), and she has restarted the internet.

Is there anything else she can do? Any advice? I'm sorry if this isn't enough information. I can try and get more if it's needed

Hi guys, here is my question.

So my sister is running an Acer Aspire 3680 laptop. Yesterday the wireless internet on her laptop was working. She ran the default window's disk cleanup and then after she rebooted her computer and let the clean up run her wireless internet stopped working. It connects to our home network but it doesn't get past the Identifying stage.

I am running a Netgear model WGR614 v7 network. Its 802.11g.

On my network I assign static LAN IP's based on MAC addresses and I employ MAC address filtering.

I checked her mac address in case the disk clean up had changed it, but the one on her computer matched the MAC i have for her in the router. I have tried cycling the power on the router and no help.

I have removed our home network from her wireless network places and then re-added it, retyping the correct password.

The RJ45 or LAN connection works fine. I am just lost on why the wireless is not working. We have other laptops in the house and they can get on the wireless internet just fine.

I am running out of ideas here, any help would be great, thanks.

I'm baffled, befuddled, bewildered, discombobulated, flummoxed , muddled, perplexed, perturbed, puzzled, AND stumped. Does anyone actually understand wireless networking? My laptop was working beautifully for a few days, then for no discernible reason, it don't.

I have Windows 7 on my desktop. it has a ASUS P5W DH Delux with built in wireless AP. The Sony Viao PCG-Z1AP laptop is running Windows XP Pro SP3.

I set up a ad hoc network on my desk top with internet sharing, and everything worked fine for a few days. Now while it is still getting a strong signal, 4-5 bars, and says it is connected, I can't access the internet through the laptop. Works perfectly plugged in to the cable modem.

And ideas for a sloution to this puzzling situation would be highly apreciated.

I'm going to bed now, soI'll check this in a few hours
