I have a hp 510 laptop that won't connect to the wireless router. It gives this error "windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range" but other laptops around connect to the same linksys router. thanks


Have you try to check the IP ADDRESS of your laptop? Your laptop must have a unique IP address or it must have the same default gateway with your ISP provider or the router. see example below,

IP ADDRESS: 192.168.1.15
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
DEFAULT GATEWAY: 192.168.1.1

preffered DNS server: 192.168.1.1

note: 192.168.1.1 is the IP ADDRESS of your internet or ROUTER that is given from your ISP that they've configured.

try to check the other laptops that was able to connect, you can follow it.

Cannot connect the 2nd computer to the internet using the ethernet adapter


Most likely, your ISP only allows a single MAC address to connect to them. To make this work with multiple computers you'll need a router that can do MAC address cloning, i.e. it reads the MAC address off of the computer that works and presents this to the ISP in all cases even when the request comes from different MAC address.

The MAC address is unique and set at the factory for each ethernet card so it's not something you can or should attempt to change. If you were able to change the MAC address on the second computer to match the first you would break your network rather than fix the problem.

It is also possible that you are using fixed ip addresses and simply need to configure the NIC on the new computer. If you check the IP v4 settings for the old computer and they have an explicit address for the card then this is is the issue. If so, simply configure the new computer to match the old computer but make sure the last of the four numbers in the ip address is something between 1 and 254 that does not match the first computer or the gateway address.

StumbleUpon Issues


you can't stumble if you're using a highly abused dynamic ip address, this is an ip address that is shared among thousands of random users on your internet service provider, if you use a web proxy stumbleupon might terminate your account, this is an isp issue, most isp may entertain an upgrade of isp account in which they will provide you your very own unique ip address, contact them about this. your isp will be glad.
