Not sure what your actual question is. Are you saying that your WinXp machine cannot connect to the wireless network at boot time, but then it is able to at some later time? Please start with the explicit issue you have, and we can go from there.

Tip on speeding up your Internet connection.


I have high speed and my Internet was sluggish at best for months. I tried everything including the following Resetting my cable modem, replacing my cable modem with a newer model. Resetting my Wi-Fi router, replacing my Wi-Fi router. Reinstalling my operating system. Updating my network drivers. Scanning for Malwere and viruses daily. I tried different browers including Firefox, Chrome and others. I updated Internet Explorer with all the latest patches.

I have determine that the DNS server was the issue. The DNS server is a translator, it allows us to just type in the website name like www.microsoft.com instead of remembering numbers like 216.239.51.99. I fix mine by using Open DNS instead of my internet provider DNS Server.

Here is how to fix it. Go to control panel, then click on your local area connection icon. Click on properties and then double click on TCP/IP Internet Protocol. Leave the top settings alone, which will still obtain the IP address automatically. Type in the Open DNS Preferred DNS server settings of 24.25.5.60. Type in the Open DNS Alternate DNS server settings of 24.25.5.61. Reboot your PC and enjoy the speed.

I just did a clean install of Windows XP and installed a wieless compact USB adapter and am connected to our wireless network but can't access the internet. Any idea why?


Most likely your DNS is not being recognized or getting through. You can do a diagnosis using IE8 and see what it comes up with. Also you can reset the works and try again to get the DNS to answer the router. If not call your internet provider and manually install the Primary DNS numbers make sure that the Network is set to auto detect. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Just go to your Control Panel >> Network Connections and look for your Default Internet Connection. Right click and choose Properties.

Basic Internet connection Troubleshooting


Test if your actually connected to the internet.

This assumes web pages fail. if not pingtest.net is one of many great sites to test connection speed.

Select 'Start' button
Select 'Run'
Type 'cmd'
Select 'Ok'
This opens a command window. Black with white text.
Type "ping 4.2.2.2" without quotes.
If you see "reply from" then you are connected but you may need to test DNS resolution.

DNS test:

Same command window.
Type "ping pingtest.net" without quotes

If you get a 'reply from' then you can resolve DNS.

If any of these ping test fail start with resetting your connection, see ipconfig /renew and/or ipconfig /flushdns then reviewing your connections and possibly contact your ISP.

Doing a Repair on XP - Vista - Windows 7 does the same (but more) as ipconfig.

I am keep getting error of '' can not find server or DNS error''.. But i am fully connected to wireless interenet through NETGEAR.


This error means there is no communication with DNS server which can be because of corrupt dns cache. This fairly common in xp but is easy to fix. Now since you are saying you are connected wireless this might be nic card message. Try to disable LAN driver from network connections in xp or network and sharing center in vista and windows 7 and see does it still give you the error. If there is no error you can leave it disabled but if still there you should only be able to connect to internet via IP address but not name like google.com. Try to open command prompt and run command ipconfig /flushdns. In vista you have to run CMD.exe as adminisrator by doing right click other wise it wont do it. Hope this helps.

I cannot communicate with primary dns server 172.29.71.1 is there a way i can reset it automaticaly or manually


You cam try doing a power cycle. Turn off the modem, router (if you have one) and your computer. after 1 minute turn on modem first then router and computer. If you still can't communicate or ping the DNS it could be a firewall that is blocking it.
