Problems accessing wireless/wired Internet, probably Ip address problems

Q: Problems accessing wireless/wired Internet, probably Ip address problems

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 running Windows XP. The Wireless adapter is an Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter. The wired adapter is Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller. The router is a Netgear 54 mbps Wireless Router model WGR614 v6.

Here's my situation: Anytime I try to connect to the internet, I get stuck with "Limited or no connectivity". When I scroll over the wireless icon to see what the problem is, it seems to be stuck on acquiring network address. Every other time this has happened to me, I simply reset my modem and router and *poof* it was fixed. This time it didn't work. i tried repairing the connection, I tried using "ipconfig" in the command prompt to release and renew my IP address, still, nothing. I tried connecting my computer directly to the modem via LAN, and it had the same problems.

I'm fairly certain it isn't the modem or the router, because all the other computers in my house are accessing the internet just fine (like the one I'm using now). We don't have encryption or any other different settings on our router. It seems to be something with my computer, since I can't connect either by LAN or wireless. I checked the device manager, nothing is problematic.

When I check the Wireless Network Connection Status, I see that (at this moment) 550 packets were sent, 0 received. When I look at my Network Connection details, it says my IP address is 169.254.174.38, my subnet mask is 255.255.0.0 and my default Gateway is 196.254.174.38. When I look at my router settings through this computer, I can see that the problem computer is not listed as an attached device.

I hope this is enough information. I'm out of ideas, and I've been looking through the internet to try to find more advice, but I figured I might as well try posting here. Any ideas?

I've read the many posts about wired/wireless problems involving Windows 7 and Realtek PCIe NICs.

Here's what worked for me.

I have an HP TouchSmart notebook with Windows 7 Premium connected to a Belkin Router (through a switch). Wireless worked fine, but I wanted a cable connection (twice the speed.) I kept getting the endless "Identifying..." message, followed by No Internet Access. Went through all the driver tips, Bonjour removal, regedits, static IP addresses...spent about a week. It obsessed me.

Then I happened to open the DHCP client list on the router page and noticed the HP appeared TWICE.

With two different MAC addresses!

Eureka! That was it. I'm using MAC address filtering on the router, and the wireless port has a different MAC address than the wired port. I had entered the address only for the wireless port (assuming it represented the entire machine.) Once I entered the MAC address for the wired port, both (obviously) worked.

I noticed a lot of people trying many exotic things to fix the problem -- it might be nothing more exotic than this. Moral: beware your computer's secret identity.

Hello,
 
This is my first post here, and it's quite a puzzling issue. It's a long story so I'll try to summarize it as best as I can.
 
Basically, the problem is that I can't access websites for the most part from my desktop PC, connected wirelessly to my Comcast Wireless Gateway (modem/router combined), but only when I'm on the second floor of my house. My Wireless Gateway is located on the first floor, only about ten or so feet away from being directly underneath the office where my PC is located. So it's basically only got one floor to get the signal through. Now, Windows shows my wireless signal as being really strong, usually at least four if not five bars out of five. Most of the time I try to open any website like cnn.com, facebook.com, etc. the browser spins and spins, trying to connect, until it finally times out and says "This webpage is not available" (for Chrome), or the variant message for any of the other major browsers. Occasionally, I will be able to connect to a site, maybe after rebooting, but usually only one page will open, and then I can't open any other pages after that. There are some extremely odd contradictory behaviors and other significant points surrounding this issue that I will basically list for easy reference:
I brought my PC down to the first floor and connected directly to the Wireless Gateway (WG) via ethernet cable and internet worked great.
I then downloaded a few hundred MB worth of Windows updates, since I had recently rei... Read more

I'm pretty embarrassed to say it, but my joy to express that I've solved this problem is overriding my embarrassment, and also I would feel bad if I checked again and someone had responded to my novel of a post, but the issue has been resolved.
 
The culprit:  A metal filing cabinet
I had placed a short metal filing cabinet next to my PC tower, in between my tower and my desk, in order to place my second monitor onto. Well, apparently even though it wasn't on the side that would be closest to the router, it was causing enough interference to nearly completely shut down my internet access. I can't believe it.

Ok, I've seen this before with the DNS showing a valid DNS IP but also a default gateway of 192.168.0.1 which usually indicates there is another router or a modem/router and then your access point.

Can you confirm if this is true or not?

If there is only one router then you need to define 2 DNS IP addresses in your routers set up page, as it appears now you seem to have one DNS server typed into your IPv4 properties?

Hi there folks, have been having the following problems for a few days now, hoping ya'll can help!

Using:
Tenda W300D Wireless N Router connected to Plus.net broadband
1 XP PC, wired
1 Vista PC, wired & wireless
1 Vista Laptop, wired & wireless
1 Xbox 360, wireless

Am experiencing the following....

Vista PC will connect to the router (local and internet) wired for a short time, but after a while or when I restart it drops out and says Local connection only. At this point vista seems to think I am at least on the network, however I cannot access any router settings or any other items on the network.

I can do a factory reset of the router, and re-input my ISP settings, it will then allow me to connect wired again and give me access to the router settings etc, but only until next time I turn off.

I get similar problems when using wireless to connect or when using the Vista Laptop. XP PC however, stays connected fine. Allows me to access router settings (192.168.0.1) at any time.

Have been doing a bit of research and tried the following:
-turned off IPv6 on using the tick box in network connections>properties
-turning off my firewall
-updating router firmware
-updating both network adapter drivers
-using alternative network adapter drivers (vista seems to think it knows best but have tried both the drivers it uses automatically and the original manufacturer drivers)
-losing my temper and leaving it for a few hours!

A:Connection Problems on Wired & Wireless Connections...

After updating router firmware it is good practice, and sometimes necessary to reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

Many Vista networking problems are driver related so download and install the latest available driver for each of your network adapters.

This is my preferred order for finding drivers:

1. PC manufacturer's web site, [I expect this will suffice for the laptop]
2. Motherboard manufacturer's web site,
3. Device manufacturer's web site, [I do not expect you'll have to go below this for the desktop]
4. A "drivers" site, such as DriverGuide,
5. Anywhere you can find one that might work,
6. Let Device Manager try to find one.
7. Use Windows Update.

However, if I connect to the DIR-615 wirelessly, I can see everything fine as well. I'm even getting the same DHCP lease from both wireless access points.

I have network discovery on, password protected file sharing off, firewall off and unneeded network services turned off (IPv6, etc).

When I can't see the wired devices this includes ping, http, ssh and samba.

A:Wireless/Wired problems with internal network

Dual router set ups aren't recommended unless you like inconsistant networks that are plagued with problems.

The way you have this set up now will only cause you problems. Go with a standard modem, not a combo unit, then use your same router and turn back on all networking services including IPv6.

The Argument against Disabling IPv6
It is unfortunate that some organizations disable IPv6 on their computers running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, where it is installed and enabled by default. Many disable IPv6-based on the assumption that they are not running any applications or services that use it. Others might disable it because of a misperception that having both IPv4 and IPv6 enabled effectively doubles their DNS and Web traffic. This is not true.
From Microsoft's perspective, IPv6 is a mandatory part of the Windows operating system and it is enabled and included in standard Windows service and application testing during the operating system development process. Because Windows was designed specifically with IPv6 present, Microsoft does not perform any testing to determine the effects of disabling IPv6. If IPv6 is disabled on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, or later versions, some components will not function. Moreover, applications that you might not think are using IPv6—such as Remote Assistance, HomeGroup, DirectAccess, and Windows Mail—could be.
Therefore, Microsoft recommends that you leave IPv6 enabled, even if you do not have an IPv6-enabl... Read more

I'm new to the forum. =)

As the title says, I'm having problems networking my laptop (using wireless) and my wired desktops.
All are on the same workgroup, and have unique computer names.
My wired desktops can see each other.
My laptop, using the wireless connection, is unable to communicate with either desktop. I can't ping the desktops by name from my laptop or their ip addresses.
I have a DSL connection, and all computers connect through the same connection.
All computers are running on XP by the way, and all have no problems connecting to the internet.
The wired desktop computers are connected to a hub. My wireless router (linksys wrt54G I think it's called) is also connected to the hub by a cat5 cable (the cable is plugged into one of the ports on the hub, and connects to the "internet" port on the router). My wireless network is using WPA-PSK (I think it's called) with TKIP.
I have tried to ditch the hub altogether by connecting everything to my router, because I thought maybe having the hub there was causing my troubles.
However, connecting everything to the router only provided a temporary solution. First, all computers could be seen from all three computers in 'view workgroup computers' for a VERY short period (like 5 minutes) - then, one of my desktops & my laptop were unable to communicate. Pinging did not work, even. Second, my wireless connection stopped working after a very short period (my laptop could not rec... Read more

A:problems networking wireless laptop and two wired desktops

So, do I understand this correctly: your DSL modem is connected to a hub, and to the hub you have 2 computers and the WAN (Internet) port of a wireless router? And you get 3 public IP addresses from your ISP?

If that's right, I guess it would work if you just used the router as a switch and wireless access point by disabling its Dhcp server and connecting the hub to a router LAN port (using a cross-over cable unless either port is auto-sensing). I still don't understand PPP, so if there's anything you are setting in your wired PCs for that, you'll have to do the same sort of thing for the wireless.

Are you paying extra for multiple IPs?

Why not just lose the hub and connect the modem directly to the router and all PCs to that?

Ok.. bare with me.. this will be long and might make your head hurt.

The situation: My laptop has two network cards, they are both in use. My wired nic is connected
to my office, my wireless is connected to my personal wifi connection. I'm ccna/mcse certified and
know a bit about these things. In theory using two nics shouldn't create so many problems, the routing
table should sort itself out using metrics. In reality its a bit more complicated, and the more I
test the more it seems there must be other variables involved. I wish there was an app to assist with
this, manually messing with my routing table is getting annoying. Anyways, here is what happens when
I turn both cards on:

The title might be a little misleading. I connected a new HP multi-function printer to my wireless router via a wired connection. I followed the instructions and the printer is working fine. The problem is a very short time later my phone, laptop and Wii were disconnected from the wireless network and will not reconnect. Wii support says that a connection cannot be established because the router will not assign an IP address to it.Prior to connecting the printer, I've never had any problems connecting via a wireless connection with as many devices as I could possibly connect to it (phones, laptops, iPods, etc). There's also been a desktop connected to the router via wire prior to and after the printer was connected.

I have a medium-sized network spread across several rooms that I am having some issues with. The main Gateway to the internet is a Linksys BEFW11S version 4. It is wired to Computer 4, Computer 3(wireless), a Netgear EN104 4-port hub, and the cable modem. The EN104 is wired to Computer 1, Computer 2, a Netgear 5-port switch, and uplinked to the BEFW11S. The 5-port switch is connected to a Playstation 2, X-Box, Computer 5, a Konica-Minolta network printer, and uplinked to the EN104. Still with me? ;P

Anyhow, what I am having difficulty with is the other end of the network. Specifically, this other portion consists of another X-box and two other computers. The problem is they are all positioned so as to make anything but wireless connection to the rest of the network impossible. I am trying to accomplish this without spending any additional money if it is possible. The remaining networking hardware that I have to spare is another EN104 and a Linksys WET11. I was wondering what the best way to make this happen would be? I tried uplinking the 2nd EN104 to the WET11 and running the three thru the EN104 but had no luck. The BEFW11S has DHCP enabled if that matters, and all connections are set to have IP addys assigned to them dynamically. Any thoughts or suggestions how to get this thing up and running would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

We just got new Windows 2000 computers at our workstations, but didn't need to upgrade our Windows NT file server. MS Outlook98 was re-installed on these workstation PC's and now when I try to check for email, I get an error saying it cannot find my POP3 server, which I'm sure is typed in correctly.

There is a modem connected to the file server, and previously Outlook would check and receive e-mail every 30 minutes by going thru that modem.

Our computer guy checked over our Outlook settings and can't find anything. Is there anything in Windows 2000 that needs to be "tweaked?" We tried adding a new dial-up connection using a local modem at my computer, that worked. Why doesn't access thru the LAN work anymore?
 

A:Problems accessing internet thru LAN

If I'm reading correctly, it sounds like the workstations on your network access they internet through connection that's made by your NT server?

So the NT Server dials out the internet through the modem, and then your workstations use that connection to go out and get email from a remote POP3 server? Is that correct?

Did your workstations just use the internet access that the NT server provided for email or did you do web browsing?

First place to check is the NT server. Check and see if IT can access the internet at all through the modem. If so, then the problem is between the workstations and the server. Most likely the TCPIP setting in Windows 2000 are not setup correctly. Windows 2000 needs to know that it can access the internet through the NT server...

I hope this makes sense. Without knowing the specifics of your setup, its hard to make any exact suggestions.

A:Problems accessing internet

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from Dell's web site.

If you can, make sure you have the latest firmware for the router and then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

For one of the laptops ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or 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.

Hello.

I recently reformatted my computer because I noticed it was bogged down, and my internet was refusing to work correctly. I did a full format of the hard drive and reinstalled windows. Immediatley after installing windows, I disconnected my internet connection and proceded to install ZoneAlarm, and XP SP2 from a portable hard disk. After I had these installed i reconnected my internet.
It was then that I noticed that windows update was being stubborn. It would only download certain patches/updates (namely those that were under 1mb) and the others, it just got stuck downloading. Thats not the only problem, as 90% of my downloads from Firefox fail too. (It downloads to around 2-300 KB and then it freezes.) Its not my internet connection, as all the other computers on the network are fine and have no problems. I tried disabling my firewall from ZoneAlarm and it still didnt work. I'm not quite sure what the problem is, because my BitTorrent Program seems to be able to connect fine, and everything in Firefox and Explorer loads slow, or fails to load at all. (Yes i did disable Bittorrent while I used my browser so thats not the issue.) I'm not quite sure what to do, as my antivirus scan and antispyware scan from zonealarm comes clean, and when there are issues, zonelabs usually has them flagged as medium-low risk, and they are cleaned up immediatley.

The funny thing is that the wireless network we use is still active - I can access his files and vice-versa. Plus, my computer still has internet access.

I'm running a virus scan right now on, with Norton Antivirus 2006 - but I wanted to see if you guys had any ideas as to what it might be.

I am a UK student living in student halls in France. I arrived a week and a half ago and I've had problems with the internet ever since I arrived. The connection here is via an ethernet cable.

When I arrived I had no internet but the office assured me this was due to routine maintenance. After a couple of days I went back and asked if I could try another cable. I tried this new cable but to no avail.

Therefore it seemed it was my computer that was the problem because everyone else in the building seemed to have a normal connection. To test this I invited a fellow student to plug the cable into their computer. As with me, their computer received no internet connection.

So I assumed it must be a problem with the connection in the room. I have called twice and the office has called on my behalf once to call out a technician but I cannot be sure if anyone has come to try to fix it.

What is interesting is that approximately 4 days ago, I did in fact get a connection to the internet via the cable which lasted about an hour before going again. The next day, I got another connection this time for about 30 minutes before stopping. The day after I had no connection all day and then yesterday I had a connection for about 5 hours until it went again. This morning I have woken to find no connection again. A couple of days ago I asked to try a 3rd cable just in case but the situation has remained the same: no internet connection!

I have also found that itunes can't connect to the Itunes store, however if I connect my Iphone to my wifes PC which is running XP but uses the same wireless router that can connect. Lastly I now can't log in to my router if I type the Ip address directly into Firefox. I am running Kapersky as my antivirus. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Problems accessing the Internet with new laptop

Make sure you don't have mac address filtering turned on in your router.

The reason that your physical address is blank is probably due to a driver issue. You should reinstall your network drivers.

If that doesn't work, you could set a mac address yourself...



   Warning
Only do this if you know the real address of your card
You would do so via this method:

1. Control Pane > Device Manager > Right click your Network (Ethernet) Adapter > Properties > Advanced > Network Address > Put a Value such as "8817E890E20A" in the text box. > OK

Now run another ipconfig /all to confirm that the Physical Adress has changed.

Reboot.

For work I has a Imation USB that is required. With your earlier help, I was able to boot to the USB. It just took flipping a couple of software settings. The Imation effectively takes over control of the laptop. The problem I am having is that the laptop cannot see any wireless network adapters when using the Imation. Plugging it into the router directly makes no difference. Additionally I notice when using the wired adapter, on the laptop, without the imation usb, that the laptop is not recognizing the wired connection. Imation does still recognize the old laptops network wireless connections and functions correction. My Company's IT people think its due to the lap of 64 bit software. When going into network adapters file folder its not seeing anything. So I need your help to allow the Imation access to the Lenonvo's wired or wireless adapters. Again I suspect lenovo standard settings (there for security I presume) are stopping me. Thanks

It seems that something is affecting my Internet Explorer. I haven't had any problems with this before. When I manually type in a URL it takes a minute or two to go to the page. IF I use a link from the same site saved as a bookmark the site loads instantly. I was able at one point to configure my firewall (Zone Alarm Pro) by forcing all programs to ask permission to access the Internet. One by one each program made the request. I then launched IE and my homepage came up. When I typed in an URL a program asked permission to access the Internet and I blocked it and the browser reacted normally by going to the requested URL. That doesn't work anymore.

I am in a house with five computers successfully connected by wireless to a router.
Recently, the router was reset. All the computers were able to re-connect again without any problems, except one, which now seems unable to get an address from the router, and uses an autoconfiguration IP address instead.

The computer that is not working is running Vista SP1 (but other Vista computers are connected). All adapters are set to 'Obtain automatic IP address'

I have since carried out the following tests:

- Connected the computer via ethernet cable: All OK.
- Whilst still connected, enable the wireless connection: All OK.
- Disconnect the ethernet cable, and keep the wireless connection active: All OK.
- Disconnect the wireless connection, and then restart the wireless connection: No IP address.

I have reset the IP stack using...

netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

... but this has made no difference.

I have removed the wireless connection from 'Manage wireless networks' and reconnected, but this made no difference.

I have turned off the firewall temporarily, but this has made no difference.

It seems as if the wireless connection is unable to obtain a DHCP address via wireless, but is
able to obtain an address from the wired connection.

Can anyone suggest where to go next please?

Another WRT54G problem:

My WRT54G hands out an IP address to my laptop when the laptop is connected via wired to the router, but the laptop's wirless NIC cannot receive an IP address from the router (XP eventually hands it an APIPA address). Signal strength is excellent but have limited/no connectivity. Linksys email support told me the problem was obviously with the laptop settings. I suspect the drivers for the laptop's NIC, but I'm having trouble updating them.

Here's what I have:
-Compaq nc8000, NIC = HP WLAN W500, driver date = 4/18/04
-WRT54G Firmware = V3.03.9 Apr 27, 2005
-I've attempted changing channels but the same problem

Through HP's site, I downloaded the Intel PRO/Wireless Driver SP31172.exe V4F (Sept 16, 2005). Followed the instructions - no change to the NIC's driver. Attempted to run \SWSetup\SP31172A\Sinstall.exe (installation told me the drivers were there). Sinstall.exe wouldn't even open.

Am I even going in the right direction focusing on the NIC driver? I don't know what to try next - any response would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:WRT54G gives IP address thru wired but not wireless

use the wired approach and make sure
1) you have a new password other than the default (a general security issue)
2) set your own SSID and allow it to be broadcast for the moment.
save and restart the router

disconnect the rj45 and enable your wireless adaptor.
you should 'see the SSID name' as a possible connection point.
if you have any neighbors with WiFi, you will also see their SSIDs.
choose yours and it will attempt to connect.

you may need to play with your firewall settings for
DHCP Client, BOOTP, DNS

Recently Hughes.net came out with a new modem and dish - the HN9000. This uses some new technology and KA band waves. They said it would be considerably faster and not nearly as sensitive to weather conditions. They installed the new system yesterday, and it is everything they said it would be - blazing fast and the overcast day had no impact on my signal or speed.

However, when I tried to access the three websites I need for work, I keep getting the message Page Cannot be Displayed. All 3 of these sites are in my Trusted Sites area.

One thing I noticed that is different from the previous configuration is in Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings.

I've got a regular desktop pc and a laptop. Both are running Windows 7.

If both machines are wired, file and printer sharing works like expected. If the laptop is on the wireless, things go sour...

The machines don't see each other, I can't ping the laptop from the desktop or vice versa. Strangely enough, if I ping the desktop from the laptop by IP address the desktop will reply. At that point the desktop will see the laptop too and sharing (file, printer & media) works fine. But if the connection is idle for a couple of minutes they won't see each other anymore.

I've tried all kinds of things: disabled IPv6 on both, reconfigured file and printer sharing, disabled the firewalls on both. But none of these changes have had any effect whatsoever. I have also tried to give everything the same name (SSID, workgroup and network name on the desktop) but that had no effect either.

More info:
- Wired and wireless clients are on the same subnet.
- The router is a Linksys WRT-350N
- AP isolation is disabled
- uPnP is enabled on the router

Does anyone have any clue how to fix this?

I have a Sierra Wireless Internet Card (USB) that is connected to my desktop computer. I also have a wireless network setup, and working, in my home with a Linksys WRT54G Router. The network works perfectly with respect to connecting my computers (Dell Desktop - wired & Mac Laptop - wireless) and sharing files. The internet works perfectly on the desktop computer where it is plugged in and I have designated the internet connection as shared but for some reason the Mac Laptop cannot access the internet connection through the wireless router.

I had previously set the network up with a DSL modem that was plugged directly into the router but I cannot do that this time as the AirCard is USB only. I also, eons ago, had the same type of network setup with dialup to the desktop computer and was able to share that. I've set it up exactly the same but no luck.

Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks!

oops; whenever you have a router, you do not SHARE the internet connection;
each computer is configured as a DIRECT CONNECTION.

I've read several posts here that come close to my issue but don't describe it exactly.

Yesterday on my personal laptop (Dell E1505 running XP SP3), I got a message box saying something about port forwarding and that I wouldn't be able to get to my website, or something like that. Unfortunately, I didn't pay much attention to the message and dismissed it. Now, I can't get to the internet using wireless. Here are some details:
Another laptop connects to my wireless network and the internet just fine
All was working fine on the Dell until I got that message
I've checked the event log and can't find anything relevant around the time of the message
Connecting to the network/internet with ethernet cable works fine.
I'm definitely connected to my wireless network because I was able to open shared files on another PC
Other, likely non-related issues:

I'm having a little problem with the hard drive and will need to run chkdsk
Sometimes I get an error regarding the display adapter driver.
Thanks.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or 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 ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

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.

Initially started out with what I saw as the msb.exe (Permissions?) trojan, though Malwarebytes found at least four trojans (sorry, do not have the names), and AVG found one more after that. However, still having major issues.

By looking at others' symptoms, I'm thinking it is possibly Vundo? Google searches are getting redirected to spam sites. Worst of all my list of available wireless networks disappeared. I can sometimes manually type in a network name and get it to connect, but then I cannot get assigned a network address. I accidentally discovered that sometimes rebooting will get it to connect right away, or toggling my Firewall on and off. Sometimes it connects right away when I toggle off, and sometimes when I toggle on.

Many thanks in advance for your help! This is a wonderful thing you guys are doing here! Loved CCleaner and PageDefrag. I was not nearly as neat and tidy as I thought I was.

Hi -

Is the system new?
Do you have an Internet Security app installed, e.g., NIS, N360, KIS, McAfee, etc. . .?
