WiFi - No Internet

Q: WiFi - No Internet

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. Yes power cycling the modem/router worked before but out of every device on my network my laptop is literally the only one having trouble so I start troubleshooting.

I have done everything under the sun at this point. I removed the annoying network adapter item Panda added with no luck so, I removed Panda. Still no luck. I've forgotten the network more times than I can count. I've flushed my DNS, I've even tried switching to Open DNS. Nothing. I checked the router (once I was connected via Ethernet obviously) and made sure nothing funky happened in the firewall settings. I even turned off the firewall completely and it didn't change anything. I installed ccleaner and had it clean up all the junk both file wise and registry wise (there were a lot of invalid firewall rules) and rebooted (omg the reboots) also with no luck. The second I disconnect from Ethernet and she tries to connect via WiFi, she finds my network, connects and then gives me the lovely yellow !. Oh, and yes, I checked with HP and I have the most recent driver for the WiFi adapter.

Now, a particular oddity worth mentioning here is while I am getting an IP once I connect, I could NOT connect to the router via WiFi. I mention that because obviously if I was truly connecting then at the very least, even without the internet, you'd think I could get to the router. Now that could just be something related to the fact that it's a router/modem combo but I'm not sure.

90% of the time my laptop is here with me in my office connected via Ethernet but that other 10% of the time is usually to play games online with my son so it's a fairly urgent need to get this corrected as I don't want to hide in my office on the weekends (haha). I've put all my specs in my profile if needed and look forward to anyone's thoughts. In the meantime, I am shutting down, walking away, and going to have a beer because dear lord this has been a waste of my day!

Preferred Solution: WiFi - No Internet

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.

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

Internet Connection Sharing - Create WiFi HotSpot

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?

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:

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 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!

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!

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.

 Hi @Kazma, Welcome to the HP Forums! I read your post on the HP Support Forums and wanted to reach out to you.  I see you are having issues with the Wireless and your HP ENVY x360 Notebook. This could be due to the Wireless adapter entering a power save mode on the Notebook.  Here is a link that shows you how to enable away mode. It enables your computer to continue performing tasks, such as recording television programs or sharing video and music, even if you walk away from the computer. Specifically, when the computer is in Away mode. Please let me know how this goes. Please click the Thumbs up below to thank me for my efforts!  Thanks.

So here is what I would like to see if I can do. I have a WiFi close by from the house can I connect the camera to my WiFi in the house to connect to the camera?

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?

I have a desktop computer but it definately has a wireless network card. i used to get windows updates for it and it just stopped working one day. when i look in the BIOS the only option related to booting a network card is B03 D00 Yukon PXE. no matter when i boot it i still dont get wireless signals. when i go into the boot menu and try to boot this device it says " PXE E61: media test failure please check cable" i have opened the tower and the card is securely in its slot. i thought i would workaround by getting a usb wifi card.

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've got a strange problem, and I hate to say I think it might be hardware at fault. This is a problem because it's a laptop.

When I got the machine, neither LAN nor wifi would work, despite two different sets of what should be good drivers. I booted into ubuntu, and there the wifi began to work, but not the LAN. At some point I pulled and reset the wifi card; perhaps that accounts for the change, but I'm not sure.

Then, directly back in windows 7 x64, now the wifi also worked, but not the LAN.

I've updated all drivers, including the AMD video (which handles a lot of functions). Device Manager looks very happy.

The LAN says "unidentified network", unless I hard-spec the IPv4 default access point IP. Then it says connected, but no internet access. Windows classifies it as a Public network. Windows Firewall is up, but dropping it did not help.

The wifi seems to be working reliably. But if I toggle it off via the keyboard hotkey while an ethernet cable is plugged in, when I reenable it it, like the LAN, will connect but with no internet access. Then I remove the ethernet cable, re-toggle the wifi switch, and it comes on with internet access. It seems that when the ethernet problem manifests it also hangs the wifi.

I'd rather have wifi than LAN, if I had to choose. But I'd like to get both going. Unfortunately this is onboard LAN and I can't change the card. I'm going to post the IPCONFIG output following.

You don't have internet on Ethernet, because the adapter can't contact a dhcp server.

Second, connect the Ethernet only, in command prompt type

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.

Using Win10 my Sony Vaio laptop connects ok to my BT wireless router but after a short while I lose the Internet connection. This happens because Win10 decides to switch to another wireless network which is secured and I do not have the password. When I disconnect this other network, reconnect back to mine, tick connect automatically I get Internet connection again only to lose it for the same reason a few minutes later. I guess it is WiFi Sense doing this but if so it should be renamed WiFi NonSense. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug ?
Thanks for any input.

Don't know if you have tried this, but this is my suggestion:

Settings >Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage Wi-Fi Settings
Go to the settings under the Wi-Fi Sense heading
Turn off "Connect to suggested open hotspots"
Turn off "Connect to networks shared by my friends"

Remove the wireless security
Is your wireless security enabled?
if so - log into the router and remove the wireless security - now see if it will connect.
if it does - log back into the router and try with the wireless security enabled again

Hi guys, I have the following symptoms with a TP-LINK router (TL-WDR3600) connected to a modem-router.

- Wired internet works fine
- Wifi signal ok, but not as stable as it should be
- NO internet via wifi, unless I remove the wifi security
- Removing and restoring the wifi security gave me back internet access, for only a while though.

All tested with pc, tablet and phone.
Any clues to what might be the problem?

I have a HP desktop PCI bought from Wal Mart 2 to  3 months ago. It was getting online via a router eathernet cable. Over night it just stopped working. I'm not able to connect to the net. It picks up my router but not my internet. I had to call my internet provider and payed a high fee service call. They checked everything and it's my computer they said after several hours of testing and troubleshooting why my PC is not connecting to the Internet. I'm on my notebook so I'm limited to what I can do. Please help me. I also have 2 other questions to ask when I get this new PC back onlineThank you very much

So basically my HP will connect to WiFi and I'm able to access my browser and all but when I try to use something like the app store for example it displays an error message saying something along the lines that I cannot connect. I'm afraid I'm missing out on automatic updates because of this. There's also the limited access icon near my connection.

I use to have a d-link router. It burnt up so I bought a Netgear. It was simple to install. All my computer, IPad etc connected to the internet, but my lap top that has vista will not. It found the wifi and conneced to it, but when I go to log on the internet it tell me that there is NO network and will not connect. So how do I get it to connect.

A:WiFi not connecting to internet

If it says that it's connected, then it probably already is. There may be something wrong with your laptop. Have you tried connecting your vista laptop to the router using a cable? Have you tried pinging websites?

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

I am running a laptop using XP. Internet and wifi were fine until yesterday but now, upon opening Firefox, I get:
Firefox can't find the server at......etc. I've tried a different URL, Google for instance.
A similar problem if I try IE.
I've switched the laptop wireless off and on, rebooted the router, even reset the router. The machine shows that I am connected to wifi with "excellent" reception.
Then I tried a direct connection with a LAN cable. still the same.
I ran the "repair wireless network connection" option but to no avail.
I disconnected wifi and retried connection by re-inputting the key but then it does not even connect.
If I then shut down the machine and reboot it picks up the wifi again just fine, but still no internet.
I uninstalled Firefox (including data), and rebooted. Tried again just with IE. Still the same issue.
I am running another laptop (Windows 7) which is fine on the same wifi. so is my iPad
Any ideas?

A:WIFI fine but no internet

Some thoughts ...
Obviously not the wireless circuit, same the choice of browser. Have you tried:
1. pinging a known good Web site from the command prompt? (i.e. Google). DNS may be an issue, suggest you proceed to the next steps:
2. Reinstalling the wireless driver (works for me most of the time).
3. Resetting the TCP/IP stack: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357
4. Possibly wireless card issue. Under warranty?
Good luck.

Im looking for help on this problem:

I have BT 2WIRE wifi router (downstairs) that is connected to the internet and my laptop and PS3 are too via WEP.

However, i have installed Ubuntu on PS3 and wish to use ethernet as the wifi doesnt work on this version of Ubuntu without messing around with it.

So i have a second wifi router, the BT HomeHub (in my room), currently with no internet.

Basically i want to connect to the internet with the laptop over wifi using the BT 2WIRE, and i want to connect to the internet via ethernet with the PS3 using the HomeHub.

So i just need to wifi the internet to the second router OR i wouldnt mind connecting the PS3 through an ethernet on my laptop.

Please help, i will really appreciate it and will leave feedback, thanks!

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.

Hi, I would really appreciate some help. I had a virus I believe it was a form of the Antivir virsus. A novice at computers i tried to fix the symptoms instead of the problem. Big mistake computer screwed up not sure what I did. I removed programs that I thought my be infected. Tried to restore my system. I eventually downloaded malware it said no infection, now even though internet explorer is downloaded , i can't get to the internet, can't disable or repair, instead it says warning visiting the website may be harmful to your computer. ie icon replaced with internet symbol.
It started about a month ago, pop ups would happen continously. Ads for various products would suddenly start playing. No picture just sound. I ignored it, then a few says ago I had pop up which denied me internet access unless I purchased some spyware. I searched for a solution on the internet,and followed instruction. I believe the virus is gone but computer is not the same. My main issue is of getting back online.

Thanks in advance....
