Question about 2wire 1800HG Router (RG1800HG00)

1 Answer

Can't launch Internet

Hello,

I'm having a problem launching the internet from my laptop in the wireless mode. The icon in the lower right corner says I'm connected and have full strength, yet when I launch internet explorer I get a dnserror. I tried launching from a local Starbucks and I get the same error. Once again, the icon said I was connected to their wi-fi and had full strength. The only way to use this laptop is to have an ethernet wire connected to the router. When the wire is connected the laptop works fine. I have a dell with XP windows installed.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

John

    Hello,



    I have been dealing with this issue for more than 6 weeks. Netgear could not solve the issue. A friend who's in the computer field could not solve the problem.

    Thank you for the help. This solved the issue and I'm free to roam the house again with my wireless

    Thanks again for the help.

2. Locate WLAN AutoConfig service, double click on it to open its properties window.


3. Under General tab, change the Startup type to Automatic and click Start button.


4. Click Apply and then ok.

How do i turn on the wireless card to my acer aspire 6930-6760


The media control buttons give access to volume control, skip, pause/play, and stop. The buttons are capacitive, and glow blue when the laptop is on. To the right of the media control buttons are four buttons that perform programmable actions. By default, they function as wireless on/off, launch Internet, launch Bluetooth manager, and launch Acer Arcade. Also, in the top right corner is a button which turns virtual surround sound on or off.
