Won't refresh IP address?

I live on a university campus and my computer won't connect to the internet. I can use wireless where I get a signal, but when I try to use the wired local area connection, I receive an error message saying "limited or no connectivity." The morons in the tech support office told me that I need a new network card, which may be the case, but I have never had trouble connecting to the internet before. When I right click on the connection in "Network Connections" and select "repair" it tells me it is not able to refresh the IP address. Why does wireless work but not wired? Can anyone make any suggestions other than replacing the network card?

    I have a laptop with wireless capability. The wireless capability will not connect to the internet but when I hook up using ethernet I can connect to the internet. How do I do a release and refresh of a laptop IP address so it will pick up the routers IP address?

Clicking repair normally sets incorrect ip addreses to your router requirements. Firstly, dissable your wireless connection, as your pc will still be trying to connect to the router, then try connecting again, your router should automatically assign an IP address to your pc. If that fails get into your routers settings (eg type in something similair to 192.168.x.x) x's being the numbers required for your router(see your manual); and have a look at the ip addresses that the router assigns to your pc's, probably on the 192.154.x.x region and write them down if neccassary. Then open up your wired cards properties(control panel- network connections- local area connection icon) and click on 'internet protocol tcp/ip', then properties and then click use the following IP address and type in the same numbers as your router range except for the last figure as this must not be same. You must also make sure the Subnet Mask numbers are the same as this is the route your connection follows to the router. Sorry it's a bit long winded but theres no shorter way round it.

your wireless devices are not configure to the right value. Start the wireless network wizard in your desktop computer.(Start- Control Panel - Network and Internet Connections - Setup a wireless network for a home or small office) Follow the on-screen instructions. After finishing, run the wizard in the router and then run it in the devices that you want to connect to the network.

SOURCE: My new Toshiba Satellite L300-20W will not connect

This problem is common.
This error message occures when the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. To get the wireless router to issue the wireless with a new IP address the connection needs to be repaired.
Right click on the wireless icon and click on repair.

SOURCE: Cannot get Toshiba Netbook connected to wireless network

ok. try this:
open a computer on your network that connects to the network. start -> run -> type cmd and click enter.
then type ipconfig /all
then open your laptop.. go to local area connection and click properties.
click internet protocol on the list and then properites.
click on "use the following ip"
and on the three text boxes below type the same settings as the ones that appear on the pc that you did ipconfig /all. the only differnt will be the ip address. if the pc is 192.168.0.105 you should put 192.168.0.106 or something else.
do the same with dns server.
click ok to close all the opened windows and check the new ip of the laptop

My computer reads my router but i cant connect to the internet through it


try setting your computer to "Obtain an IP address automatically" you might have changed your IP address that's whyn you cannot connect through the internet. got to your wireless connection status>properties>scroll the bar down and you will see the internet protocol (TCP/IP) click once to highlight and the click properties. after thata window will come out and just mark the Obtain an IP address automatically. after that click ok then close the application and refresh your network list. if it did not help, iw will find another way to fix that.

Trying to connect between cable pc xp edition and new dell vista laptop


the SSID is only the name which your connection is called.
If you have security enabled, you will need to type in the passkey when asked.

First go to internet explorer open it and go to tools>connections tab, then tick 'never dial a connection' and close I. Explorer.

go to control panel>network connections>right click on your wireless connection icon, then go to the TCP/IP line, highlight it, click properties, then select 'Obtain IP address automatically.

Select Ok, then close window, go to internet explorer, then open it up and you may need to click refresh a few times ,but should connect
