Acer Laptop - WiFi connected but no Internet secured.

Q: Acer Laptop - WiFi connected but no Internet secured.

Hello all,

I use an Acer Aspire V7 581PG which is around 3 years old and had constant WiFi problems, though manageable until now.

I usually use a Huawei O2 dongle for work because my home WiFi doesn't reach to my studio.

Its a USB dongle that I leave plugged in most of the time, but when I go downstairs it connects to our home WiFi.

Earlier I was downstairs using the home WiFi, shut the lid, and later took it upstairs to connect to the dongle, but now I am getting 'secured, no internet' when attempting to connect.
I have attempted to connect to my Huawei dongle, my home Sky Router WiFi, my phone hotspot, hardwiring ethernet to the Sky Router and at another house's BT Homehub 5 and the issue is still the same.

Trying to fix it I have attempted:

Uninstalled the WiFi adapter and restarted with scan for hardware changes. (Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222)Netsh commands (with a restart following)ip config releaseip config start (didn't work at all)ip config stop (when doing this it failed and mentioned something about no media connected?)Disabling Bluetooth modules

Entering a static iPv4 address and Google DNS addresses show 'Connected - Secured' but no pages load nor does pinging microsoft.com (4 packets sent, 0 received, 100% loss)

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Hello monmill. A most frequent cause of blocking Internet access is Anti-Virus / Firewall / Spam Blocking software that has blocked Internet access for security reasons. One way to test this idea is to turn it all off temporarily to see if access is restored. Then configure the security software to allow access to the Internet.

I am using an HP Pavilion dv7 with a Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 network adapter trying to connect to the wifi router on campus from my dorm room. The routers are placed in the common areas, so I do not receive a very strong signal in my room, but it works good enough for my Android phone to connect just fine and have a reasonable speed. My laptop on the other hand, which works fine in the common areas with good signals, at times struggles to get internet. I have episodes where I can connect just fine and receive sufficient speed, but then at other times, I connect to the wifi but I cannot connect to the internet. I click Diagnose on the Wireless Network Connection Status, which runs and claims to find an error which is fixed by resetting the wireless adapter. Rarely does this actually fix the problem though. I am curious as to what could be causing this spotty internet connection with my laptop, when my phone always works just fine. Could it be something with HP's default WLAN manager? I read something about updating to Intel's wifi manager but I could not get the update to work with my Windows 7 64-bit OS. Does anyone have some insight that can make my laptop connect better?

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 received a replacement laptop via warranty (a refurb Asus) with Windows 8 and I keep loosing my internet connection via wifi (home wireless network) when my iPad and two iPhones stay connected to the same wifi network. It will at first tell me access is restricted then I have lost connection completely and must click and re connect...so far it's been 4 times in the last hour while other days I stay connected no problem.

A:Asus laptop won't stay connected to internet (via wifi)

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

ipconfig /all

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the infomation above those entries

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Please help. I know very little about computers. Please excuse me if I explain things wrong and use incorrect terminology.

I hadn't used my laptop for a while, and yesterday, it didn't come on when I tried to turn it on. I ended up taking out the battery, then holding down the power button for 30 seconds. The laptop worked fine after that, and I was able to access the Internet. When I went to shut it down, it said that it had updates to install, so I told it to install the updates and shut off when it was done.

When I started it up today, it seemed slow to get to the Toshiba screen. It looked liked it was still installing updates, which I found odd because it had shut itself down yesterday after installing all of them (I thought). I shut it down again after the updates (or whatever that was) had completed, and I was able to access one site very briefly. However, now I can't access the Internet at all. The Internet Explorer page comes up for a few seconds and then closes again to the Toshiba page. When I check my connection, it says that the Wifi is connected. I can't figure out why I can't access the Internet. Please help.

Edited to add that I'm using Windows 8. Also, I just tried to scan with Norton, but the scan won't work.

Hi there!

So I have begun to encounter this super weird problem since the past two days.

I have a wireless router that I use to connect three devices to the internet. Two laptops and a phone. I've had the same internet connection for the past 1.5 years and everything has worked just fine.

Off lately, my laptop won't connect to the internet only in my room. Everywhere else, it works just fine. But the minute I enter my room, the connection changes to 'Unidentified network' or 'No internet access'. I tried bringing the other laptop in my room and that works perfectly.
What could be the reason for this?

I have been scouring forums on the internet, but couldn't find any resolution.
I tried re-installing my wireless drivers but that didn't help. Tried troubleshooting and the problem couldn't be fixed.

Please help!

HI all, I have a lenovo laptop that is almost exactly a year old and it WILL NOT stay connected to the internet neither by wifi nor LAN. It will connect sometimes for 10 mins, sometimes for ten seconds. I can turn the computer off, restart it, close all other programs, diagnose connection, disable and restart adapters, nothing works for very long. I dont believe it is the internet as my Xbox, my desktop and my phone all connect fine through both wireless and wired connections. There are also two other laptops on the house that connect just fine (not windows 7 machines tho) my desktop is also windows 7 and sporadically has this problem as well. I have tried going to barnes and noble and starbucks to try different internet and still the same thing happens. Very Frustrating, please help if you can

Hello:I've been having an issue with my Dell XPS Desktop (Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V Ethernet card).
When I connect this server to my router by an ethernet cable, all other other computers connected (Hardwired or Wifi connected) disconnect themselves from the internet. I get the same response when I connect to the Wireless Wifi as well.
It happens only with this Desktop running Windows 10.
I was told to change the DNS address to the OPENDNS Addresses - I tried and I had no luck. I do not have the Ethernet card or the Desktop in powersave mode. They do not go to sleep when idle.
Can someone please make any suggestions. Any input from your end would be very much appreciated.

I have an ACER Aspire 1640z that has a very weird internet problem.

When I turn on the laptop the internet works fine for about ten min, it gets its IP from the DHCP server (Belkin router) and connects fine.

I can browse the web with firefox or IE6 for 5 - 10 min before pages just suddenly stop loading, the status bar just says "waiting for...[Webpage]" until the page times out.

If I disconnect and reconnect to the WIFI it works again fine.

While this laptop is not loading web pages another laptop of a different make is able to load pages fine and continue using the WIFI.

I did notice something very weird while looking for a solution:

While the internet is not loading if I open the wireless status box by double clicking the icon in the system tray the value next to network that shows the SSID (Lewis) is flashing, and no packets are being sent or received.

Thanks for any advice

I was having some network problems and in the course of fixing them I uninstalled the network driver for my TP-Link AC600 Archer T2UH USB network card. This card has been working without a problem for months on 2.4 and 5Ghz channels and at high speeds > 150Mbps.
When I attempted to reinstall the drivers, I can get connected to the WiFi but I get the Windows 10 message "Secured, no internet
I have tried numerous drivers and I have now tried to connect using two separate NIC cards. (I had an old 802.11n usb adapter) as well as a 5Ghz wireless bridge that I used to use that connects to the PC via ethernet. All of these have connected to the network, but I get the same "Secured, no internet" message.

The only thing I can think of at this point is that I've somehow screwed up the adapter. I've looked at that ipv4 settings are they are all set to "Obtain an ip address automatically" and do not have a DNS name specified. I have attempted all the windows repair options as well and they return telling me their may be something wrong with the driver or the adapter. I'm at wits end. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Connected to Network but "Secured, no internet"

Welcome to the forums, if you have any third party AV programs, disable or uninstall it, go to device manager, right click Wi-Fi adapter, Properties and uninstall the driver. Reboot your PC/Laptop and let Windows install the driver, go to IPV4 as you have done before, click the radio button "Use the following DNS addresses...." and enter Open DNS address(in the snip) or google dns address.

Hi, any help on this would save my shattered nerves!!!

My acer aspire one netbook got the blue screen of death, (end of error hexidecimal code was 000007B). I tried to resolve it, but gave up in the end and did the 'erecovery' via cmd prompt f10, and went back to factory default setttings. Worked perfectly. I then did a 'Restore' from my Backup (Clickfree Backup System btw), and got all my files back. I then tried to get back online.

I am connected to my wifi signal (excellent strength) on the netbook, but not connected to the internet. It isn't an issue with the wifi, as I am connected to internet fine using my other pc (a laptop), and my ipod touch is also still connected and fine.

I ran connection diagnostic in Internet Explorer, which said it was damaged winsock. I've tried winsock repair from Diagnostic in Internet Explorer Tools: did nothing. I've also tried running a winsock fix program, that also did nothing. From the cmd screen I've tried to 'ping' yahoo and BBC: nothing. I've tried to reset the IP Config, and that did nothing.

I'm out of ideas and losing hope!!! Please, can anyone help me?

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."

Hi all,

I've recently set up a wireless network on a netgear WGR614 wireless router with an Unwired modem (not sure if this is just an Australian brand - basically it's a modem that connects to the Unwired company's wireless network without the need of a phoneline or nakedDSL). My eeepc works fine on the network, but my Acer Aspire 5100 won't connect to the internet. It says it's connected to the wireless network at full strength but it won't connect to any websites. I've also tried on a friend's computer and that had no problems connecting to the network.

I've had this problem once before on the same computer (but a different network) but even still the Acer would connect to the internet when I attached the ethernet cable. Now it won't even do that. The problem before was that the internet sharing box was ticked, but I've checked that and it hasn't changed. I've disabled firewalls - no dice.

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!

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.

Recently upgraded my u530 from windows 8 to windows 10 and the internet is no longer working. i have tried everything on the windows website but i am very far anything knowledgable on computer

A:WiFi connected but no internet

Hello and Welcome to Lenovo Community.
It looks as if there are some drivers for network on the Drivers and Software page for the U530 Ideapad (Touch). If that is your model, you could try installing those to see if it helps. Make sure you get the ones for Windows 10 when you search on that page.

Hello everyone, so the other day my PC unexpectedly shut down and been giving connectivity issues since.
Currently, I can connect to my WIFI router, gain an IP address. however I am getting no internet access.
have a virtual machine running on the PC, with windows XP, and this machine does have full internet access.

Problems and resolutions so far:

Windows firewall and security manager were corrupted and various services did not start however all are up now.
I reset the TCPIP stack via command prompt.
I reinstalled Wifi drivers.
I ran the sfc and chkdisk  commands. Check disk resolved some issues.
I did a traceroute and i hit my router, after there is a request timeout then it goes to a few addresses before stopping.

Im lost now as everything seems to be up, just I am unable to browse. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

A:Wifi says connected,but no internet

after a reset the default for the router would be
you are showing a default gateway connection on your ethernet of

Also the wireless adapter is a Atheros AR5007 and under vista , any change in routers or router settings can cause issues

can you explain what you are connected to using the ethernet cable ?

and you should update the wireless driver from the manufacturers website - if that does not work - then from Atheros site

whats the make and model of the PC ?

Vista 32 / 64 Bit
Direct link Drivers for Atheros AR5007 and Windows Vista 32 / 64 bit
You only need to click on the green download button labelled " Click to Download " and wait, the file will download - you do not need to click on any other buttons to get the download started

To install the driver you will need to do the following

Extract the downloaded zip file into a folder on the PC

> Start Globe
> Control Panel
> System and maintenance
> Scroll down to Device manager
> network adaptors, click on the + >
> Right click on the AR5007 Adapter
> click on Update Driver Software...
> click on Browse my computer for driver software
> let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
> Have Disk
> click on the Button Browse...
> Locate the folder you extracted the zip folder and highlight the .inf file
you should see two files with .inf
Vista 32Bit AR5007 netathv.inf
Vista 64Bit AR5007 netathvx.inf

I am far from computer savvy, but I know basic things. Here is my issue...
My HP pavillion dv6000 (yes it's old, I know) wont allow me to use the Internet. It says I am connected to my home wifi with 5 bars signal strength. My iPad and Droid both connect to my wifi and I can use the Internet fine. I actually have 2 Hp pavillion dv6000 laptops, and neither will connect to the Internet! Up until today everything worked fine and all of a sudden I can't open the intent on either one! I called Hp and they were no help. I have read other posts about people having similar problems, and tried the solutions suggested but nothing has worked! I need my laptop only because my wonderful iPad can't do everything I wish it could.

Help!? Thanks in advance!

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

HELP! I have tried so many fixes from online help that I am about at my whits end. I am trying to get my old laptop connected to the internet. It says I am connected to the wifi but it also says I have No internet, secured

I have visited many sites where it tells me to go to the cmd and run as administrator and do this or that to config my ip- restart and such but still the same problems. Any troubleshooting that I keep doing tells me it's my router/access point but I have internet on all my other laptops/desktop.

My old hp is running with windows 10 Home edition. My system type is 64 bit operating system, 64x based processor. Not sure what all else you may need to know.. UGH!
