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.

My computer sees the home net work but cannot connect to the internet. Internet works fine when I plug cable directly to computer


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Acer with Windows Vista does not connect to Internet


You're laptop needs to have a profile for the router. Go to Network and Sharing Center, Manage Wireless Networks. Please remove all the listed networks there. Now click on Add, then Add a Network in Range of this Computer. Select the wireless name of your router and connect. If it asks for a network key, please type your wireless security key then connect. That should do it.

Hi,

If the laptop is working then your router is probably working correctly. Is the desktop wired to the router or running wireless?
