Most people don't need a proxy server unless it's in a corporate environment.
On your laptop, try going into your control panel -> Internet options -> Connections tab -> LAN Settings button and uncheck all of the boxes. Hit OK until you get back to the control panel. Try your internet and see if it works.
Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card. To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends. Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop. Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--
Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"
In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.
Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".
Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server. please vote if you found this helpful..--Abhishek
Hi, POP3( Post Office Protocol), this means that if i send you an email then if you have a POP3 account then my email will directly be delivered to your mailbox( for eg.Microsoft Outlook ) after getting filtered from the server. The mail then delivered will be automatically saved into your hard drive.The IMAP( Internet Message Access Protocol ) is bit more complex than POP3 accounts, IMAP accounts in general are handled by the webmail servers ( for eg. gmail.com, yahoomail.com etc. ). The main feature of the IMAP accounts is that these are handled over the internet. Lets say if you have an email account with gmail.com then the only way we access our emails is by connecting to the internet, because all the emails are stored on the internet on the web-server. To check the type of account you can contact your internet service provider.
Conclusion: Emails stored over the internet are IMAP accounts and emails stored in your hard drive are of generally POP3 accounts.
But as you have said you can connect using wireless,then in wireless adapter setting,
Assigned your IP address Plus Subnet Mask address. Set your wireless access point IP address as your Default Gateway Address.
In Primary DNS address as provided by your Internet service provider.specify secondary address too,it available.
If DHCP server is available then you don't need to configure anything.
If you are trying to browse internet through a proxy server than Go to internet Explorer,Click "Tools", Select "Internet options ", Select Connection, Tick Proxy server and specify the IP address of your proxy server and the port.
You haved enabled the capability for your computer to "boot" itself by reading from a boot-server connected to your network-cable.
But, the network-cable is unplugged, resulting in the "check cable" message.
What this _could_ mean is that the computer primarily tried, and failed, to boot from your disk-drive, and secondarily tried, and failed, to boot from your CD-ROM, and so it made a tertiary triy, which failed, to boot from the "network", i.e., that your hard-drive is not functioning.
Reboot, and enter "BIOS setup", and disable the "boot from network" option, to get rid of those error-messages. But, it's still possible that your disk-drive is malfunctioning.
There are a few possibilities here. One of the more common ones is that you haven't paid your internet service bill, and they've turned off your connection to the internet. If so, you can usually still get to your ISP's address (e.g., verizon.net or comcast.net), where you will be prompted to log in and give new credit card information.
Another possibility is that you have a spyware/adware/virus/malware infection. You'd need to install and run a package like SpyBot, AVG, or BitDefender (all free and quite good). Since you can't surf to these sites, you'd need to download the package onto a flash drive from a connected computer.
Another possibility is that there really is a problem with the upstream DNS server or your computer's TCP/IP (internet) settings. Getting to these settings is different for different versions of the Windows operatingn system (grrr... Bill Gates is the devil incarnate). Usually, setting the DNS server to be selected by DHCP works. Alternatively, you can manually specify the OpenDNS servers: 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
If the problem really is with the upstream DNS server, you'd still be able to connect to purely numeric IP addresses, like, for Google: http://184.108.40.206
If that numeric address won't work, you might need to look at your upstream connection devices, like router or modem or the physical wire/cable connection to the modem.
