I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

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.

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

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

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

I have never run into this before.

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

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

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

Has anyone run into this on Vista?

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

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

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

Hi 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.

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,

I have a hp laptop, it's about two years old. I can connect to my wireless network, but i have no internet access. I also have a macbook, and it's accessing my wireless network perfectly fine.

My router does not have a password ( yes, i know, pretty dumb of me)

Any help is highly appreciated,

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Windows Vista- connected to to router, but no internet access

You should assign a login password, but if you don't allow remote management it's not too important. Just be sure to have your wireless secured with at least WPA-PSK and a strong passphrase.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (including Radar, Connection and Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Whenever I unplug from the router and go upstairs, I can't connect to my wi-fi. The problem also persists downstairs unless I am connected by ethernet. It's been happening for about 2 days. At first the wi-fi would jump in and out randomly and quickly but now it simply wont connect. Is it a virus or how can I fix it?

A:Connected to WiFi router but no internet acess!

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

McAfee Removal Tool - McAfee Uninstaller

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

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

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

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

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

during the day while i was at work, my roommate was going to use the laptop, when she couldn't connect, she did the unplug for 10 sec. thing...whent that didn't work, she unplugged the two cables from the back of the router, and plugged them back in. is it possible that she plugged them into the wrong place? would that be the problem? i am not at home right now, so i can't check...but will try to fix this when i get home tomorrow. not sure what i need to do!!

I'm going to try and explain this as best as possible. I have a wireless camera system that is connected to a wifi router, the purpose of this is to give the wireless camera a connection point to the dvr. There is no internet signal to this router. I want to be able to view my cameras over an internet connection, so I can use my mobile device to view them wherever I want.

An ethernet cable needs to be plugged directly into the dvr in order to allow it to connect to the internet, problem is I am using a wifi signal from a business next to mine and have no way of doing so. Is there a way for me to connect my wifi connected laptop to the router via an ethernet cable into the WAN port, and use one of the LAN ports to connect to the dvr while being able to send the signal to the dvr allowing it to connect to the internet?

Please let me know if I need to give more information on what I'm trying to accomplish. Your answers are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

2. Resetting the router
4. Restarting the computer
5. Releasing the ip and disconnecting the computer from the network followed by a reconnect.
6. Manually attempting to connect to the wifi network

Hi,

This issue has been bugging me for months.

I've configured my ADSL Wireless Router to have an "always on" connection to the internet.
This I can check in the router configuration page, under status and I see that there is indeed PPP connection to my ISP, with transmission and received statistics to prove it.
Ok, no problem there.

However, when I connect to the wireless router from my PC, I would expect that because the internet connection is already active on the router, I would not have to log in to the ISP again from my PC. But I do!
Why I do not know, but this has been irritating me for months.

Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

FYI, running VISTA (rubbbish) and connected to a Siemens SL2-141/SL2-141-I ADSL Router.

Regards

With no changes to the router or laptop (it's still in default factory settings), my wireless connection has been disconnecting for about three days and I am unable to connect back. I get Microsoft's default "Can't connect to this network" message. When I connect my laptop to the router via an ethernet cable, I am able to access the internet.

In order to connect back to the internet wirelessly, I have to reset my router and my laptop will connect, only to disconnect half an hour to an hour later.

All my other wifi devices connect fine, including an older model Asus laptop. I've tried connecting to wifi at other people's houses and public wifi hotspots and they all work fine. As soon as I come home though, connection is out again.

Laptop : ASUS X550JK ; Windows 8.1 x64 ; Broadcom 802.11n network adapter (with latest drivers)

Hi,
I have a Dell XPS 13" for the last year and a half.
I changed the password for my router after which my Dell XPS is not able to connect to the internet. The laptop does connect to the router (status states - Secured, Connected) however it does not connect to the internet.
I can connect to the internet via the same router on multiple devices (ipad, iphone, android phone, macs and another Lenovo Windows machine)
I am bamboozled as to why this Dell XPS is not able to connect.
Checking the properties of the device (via the Device Manager) says the Device is working properly. The network adapter is a Dell Wireless 1820A.802.11ac.
I tried to uninstall and re-install the driver and still don't see a difference.
Appreciate any assistance.
The Dell website (for Drivers and downloads is also friendly). I can't easily check what the latest driver is. 
Searching for wireless for my Dell XPS
returns only one result  and the installation of that is not successful either.

A:Wifi connecting to my router however it does not connect to the internet

When you stated you changed the password on the Router, I thought you meant the one for the Admin of the Router.  I suppose you mean the WPA2 security password for the network..
I assume you have looked at the available networks and picked the one you use and check it properties for Public/Private and security settings?
If the wireless icon is showing a yellow triangle it may be related to DNS.  You might check the IP Settings on the above reference page to make sure you have correct IP addresses listed.

I've got a desktop running vista connected to a wireless router via cat5 cable which, in turn, is connected to my DSL modem. Vista is giving me limited or no connectivity issues; it will connect to the router but it won't connect to the internet. My laptop running XP connects to the wireless, as well as the internet. What could the problem be? I've already turned of the tcipv6 thing, and I've tried a few other fixes, but to no avail. Even when I connect the modem directly to the computer, it says that it's connecting to a local network and still no internet. I would sincerely appreciate any help I can get.

Can you connect Sony laptop to another wifi router succesfully?

When connected to (failing) wifi (from command prompt):


Code:
ipconfig/all>ip.txt

Post ip.txt and route.txt

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 guys,

It's my first time to post a topic here, but i am not a newbie to BC.. I am Jerald, IT head in a hardware company. I want to share my problem to all you readers..
I have a desktop computer that has a internet connection, or let's say it is my server.. I am using D-Link Ethernet Broadband Router which has an IP Address 192.168.1.1. This router is not a wireless router. I bought a wireless router named Linkysys.. I configured it using Automatic Configuration -DHCP, with a router name WRT54G.. i used the D-link router ip address as it's gateway (192.168.1.1). I disabled the DHCP server.. in other words, i am using a 2 router, a non-wireless connected directly to my desktop computer and a wireless router connected to that D-LINK broadband router..I tested the connection using Windows XP laptop and by then it works.. I can connect to my wireless network and browse the internet.. On the properties of my loptop wireless network i configured it as "obatain IP address automatically and "Used the Following DNS Server' i used Preferred DNS: 124.217.127.238 and Alternate DNS: 202.138.128.54. I click on the "ADVANCED" button and add a gateway using my D-LInk router IP address 192.168.1.1. Suddenly one of our customers want to connect in our wirless network.. He is carrying a Windows Vista laptop.. I connect it to linksys wireless network but i can't connect to internet. obviously it has an X on its connection to the internet. But if i look on it's wireless... Read more

I had simmilar wierdness with my new linksys wireless router until I ran their included setup wizard. after that everything was fine.
aparently it flips some internal switch allowing the thing to work properly.

Have you tried that?

Also - the laptop connected to the wireless router. can he get to local company sites and/or PCs? ... if not, try rebooting.

I hooked up my new Linksys E2000 router, and all devices connect no problems. 3 Windows 7 machines, a 3DS, the wii, and the ps3 can all access the internet just fine. My only Vista machine will not connect to the internet, just local only. I have tried assigning a static IP and I have restarted my network adapter, machine, router and modem to no avail.

Not sure what would be causing this. Any ideas?

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.

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.

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!

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.

Hi all,I have a very frustrating problem with my Windows 10 insider build 14352.1002 laptop.This started happening a short time after I upgraded to the above OS. The icon in the system tray is displaying my SSID and citing "Internet access", Wi-Fi is enabled and flight mode is disabled. However, any web browser or program that requires or allows a connection to the internet will not work because my PC is apparently not connected to the internet. For example, I get a "This page can't be displayed" message in IE and a "Can't reach this page" message in Edge. I can, however, ping my router without any problems. I send a ping request to the router and the router replies, implying an active network connection. I've tried everything, from reconnecting to the network to restarting the wireless card to updating the drivers to resetting the system, but nothing works. I even tried a system file check (sfc /scannow) but no violations were found. I know it's not a router issue because all other devices in my house can connect to the internet with no problems.To top it off, this is a brand new laptop (over a month old).Your assistance is highly appreciated.

I've also been through the routers settings and it all looks good from there.

If anyone has any ideas that would be really helpful.

Check IP settings using IPCONFIG/ALL, make sure the Gateway and DNS addresses are pointing to your Router.
On the Router settings, make sure the login details are correct and DNS is set to either specific ISP supplied DNS addresses or set to auto detect.
