WiFi No Internet

Q: WiFi No Internet

Hi. I have tried everything for countless hours today with no avail. Yellow exclamation mark in the WiFi icon, No Internet, DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN when I try to use Chrome, No network access and unidentified network in the Centre. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card, changing drivers, all sorts of DNS, all sorts of commands, rebooting everything, ethernet cable, virus scans, disabling firewalls and so on. This all happened when I updated yesterday and then uninstalled AVG, before it was working fine. Internet works like a charm on other devices, and my wireless card is listed as working properly when checked. I have no idea what else to try. Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I am currently stationed in Germany, and live in a village that has horrible internet. I cannot stream netflix, hulu, and downloads take several hours.

Is there a way to combine the internet that my cell phone receives and the wifi router I have at home to increase speed?

I have the ability to create a wifi hotspot from my cell phone if this helps.

Just something I thought up in my head, and wanted to find out if it is possible. Thanks in advance.

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?

So I got a new router yesterday to replace the old one, and I've been working on it for a long time. But I can't seem to figure out why there isn't any internet connection. The new WiFi Router (D-Link DR-842) Shows it is connected to the internet (green light) but in the setup page, it says disconnected. Could the PPPoE details be causing this? As far as I know everything is correctly set up except for the internet part.

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.

A:Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Due to the age of XP this is not the best option for what you want to do

Either windows 7 or 8.1 have access to Internet connection sharing (ICS) built in

To use ICS you need at least two connections to the local LAN, these can be any mix of wifi or Ethernet.

As you have a laptop you likely already have a system to use for this

There is a tutorial explaining the basics ... and more on this site

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.

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've been battling this particular issue for a couple of weeks now without much success. I have a custom built desktop where my WIFI connection will deteriorate to the point where internet (and gaming over Steam, etc...) will be either painfully slow or unable to load pages at all. Windows claims throughout that I am connected to my WIFI network with internet access and good signal, even when I cannot reach any internet pages.

This problem has happened at 2 different locations (on different WIFI networks), and with 3 different WIFI adapters (TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 PCI, TRENDnet TEW-684UB USB, Edimax EW-7811Un). At both locations, I have another laptop and a phone that can connect to the WIFI network just fine. I even got a couple of the adapters to work fine on the laptop without the issue.

I've found that disabling NetBIOS seems to temporarily improve matters (I'd read elsewhere that that can cause issues), but it has not resolved the problem. Also: I'm getting DNS errors in the Windows 7 event logs:

"Name resolution for the name XXXX timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

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!

One important snag, I can't access the home router to reconfigure, as this is provided by my ISP. Should I connect a router to the ISP router to have access to port forwarding and other router functions?

Hey guys... I'm at my wits end here and hoping someone can help me out.

I've been happily able to switch between my Ethernet and WiFi connections at home with no issues forever. When I'm in my home office I am connected via Ethernet because it's a considerably faster connection but, every so often, I bring my laptop to another room and connect via WiFi. Never has this been an issue.

4 days ago, I grew tired of the constant task bar pop-ups from Avira Free AV and decided to kill it and give Panda Free AV a try. Things had been going swimmingly since then so I had no reason to think there was an issue... until today that is. For the first time since I installed it, I hopped downstairs to play with my son and thus connected via WiFi. Every other device in this house (and there's a lot of them) is connected via WiFi with no issues but lucky me, upon switching to WiFi I see the dreaded yellow ! over my connection. I disconnect and reconnect a few times. I even go so far as to forget the network. Nothing. So, I run upstairs and power cycle the modem. This is where things get weird....

Power cycling the modem/router worked so I went on with life. After an hour or so I shut down my laptop and all was right with the world. Then 2-hours later, I boot it back up and wouldn't you know it the dang yellow ! is back. It is at this point that I realize it's gotta be something going on with my laptop.

I am having a strange problem with a computer that I have. I have internet only when a cable is plugged into this device. Using wifi, no matter where, it will say connected. When I try to surf using any of the 4 browsers I have it tells me I'm not connected to the internet. To further complicate this issue, When I have this pc connected via hard wire then disconnect the wire and switch to wifi I can only browse the website that I was on with the wire. I tried this with cnn.com. I loaded cnn.com with the cable connected, disconnected this cable, then started clicking tabs. They all loaded just fine. I even read some of the articles. Here is a list of the things I have tried

1. First thing I did was run a rootkit search using tdsskiller.exe (rootkits can do some amazing things)
2. Reset all of my internet explorer settings to default
3. made sure there wasn't a proxy configured via internet options
4. Released and renewed IP and DNS using auto configure
5. Tried the winsock fix and restarted.
6. Ran Malwarebytes
7. Tried turning off/disabling the wireless and re-enabling it.

How should I bridge or share the internet between these two networks ?


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

A:Internet sharing wifi and USb

Bridging usually works best for ICS.

Here's a checklist of things for ICS and file sharing for 2 croslinked computers (in my case a Windows 7 and XP one):

- both computers set to the same workgroup
- restarts
- advanced sharing settings - all things turned on (network discovery etc.) except for password protected sharing
- bridged the connection with the internet
- turned on Internet Connection Sharing for the internet connection - this forced an ip to the other connection (192.168.137.1) and gave an option to select which connection should have access to the ICS (the second connection or the bridge - you choose the second / crosslinked cable connection)
- shared some folders on both computers
- worked instantly (the other pc aquired a correct ip and internet)

Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)

Notice how in the link above they use a switch to connect more than one computer to the ICS machine.

The way you are doing it may not work correctly because you are daisy chaining the ICS machines end to end.

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.

A:wifi won't connect to internet

If you go to Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center, and look at the Network connection diagram, is Internet X'ed out? If so, just click on the Internet. Does that work. (I'm sorry I can't be more specific but, for some reason, I can't get there right now to be more precise. I think I need to reboot.

Hey there. This is my first post on this forum, I hope that I can get some help here . Anyways, here is the issue that my roommates and I are experiencing with our internet.

Recently, starting just a few weeks ago, our internet began acting a bit strange for all of us. We are able to constantly stay connected 24/7. In our network preferences, it says we are always connected to the internet with full bars. For the most part, we all have perfect and fast internet connection, but for some unknown reason, every 45 minutes or so (sometimes shorter, sometimes longer), we won't be able to load anything on the internet from a range of about 5-10 minutes.

The strange thing is that even during these periods of time where we are unable to load anything, as if we had no wifi connection, all of our devices that we use the internet on said that we all still had a perfect connection. Even if we are sitting right next to the router with our laptops, this issue will still constantly reoccur as i described earlier.

What's even weirder is that sometimes things like video games on the pc that run in different clients (not the internet browser), will be able to maintain internet connection when playing online when the internet stops working for everything else. That is definitely what confuses me the most. How could a video game maintain internet connection for online play on the same wifi, yet none of our other devices are able to load anything? We won't even be able to use w... Read more

My wifi is connected, but when I open any browser (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer) It loads and then says I have no internet connection. I've tried troubleshooting, but it tells me everything is fine. The Wifi on our other laptop works fine or for my phone; basically any other device works perfectly fine, except my laptop. I've tried using CMD, going back on my Restore Point and nothing has worked, and if it does it's only for 3-5 minutes, and it gives me the same error that I have no internet connection. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I need my laptop for work.

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.

Maybe someone can help.  I just returned from a vacation overseas.  At the last hotel, which had free wifi, I logged in with their provided user ID and password.  I connected to the network, but could not get Internet access.  My other devices (iPod Touch, iPad) got the Internet just fine.  I had had Internet access at this same hotel a few days earlier.  At an intervening hotel, I couldn't get the Internet either (my other devices could), but I thought that might have been because the Internet was so slow there, barely above modem speeds from forty years ago.   Any idea what it could be?  I'm home, and obviously it is fine here.   I have an Envy 17t notebook.

I've recently found that my android phone can create a WiFi hotspot to share the internet and started streaming media over my new network I've created. But one of the applications needs my firewalls to be turned off to be able to view the files. I'm not too comfortable with my computer unprotected while on my phones internet.
If I use the connectify app to create the WiFi hotspot without any internet it also works but then my phone cant receive emails and so on.

Will there be a way to connect to my phones WiFi hotspot with the internet still on on my phone but block internet access on the computer. And then when i want to go onto the internet just swich it back on.
Its realy quite a big hassle to switch between networks and so forth.
Any help will be appreciated.

Hey I've been having an issue lately, every time I turn on my computer or connect to the internet it connects me to my WIFI box that I have, I have it mainly for the xbox and people that want to use wifi around the house but my computer used to have its own "Connection" if you know what i mean? Like the connection looked like a little house haha and I used never have lag or delay issues because of it, but now whenever I turn on my computer or anything it automatically connects to my wifi. How could I change it back so that it connects to my actual internet? My internet is connectected from the wall straight to my computer. Thanks!

A:Wifi and My home internet

So you must have both a ethernet (wired) and wireless adapter on the machine. If you right click on the networking icon by the clock> open network and file sharing, on the left>change adapter settings. right click on the Wireless adapter and select: disable.
