    hey after searching and searching for answers i stumble upon this , it's interesting because i have this exact problem. I connect to the internet using a satellite connection and it automatically assigns an ip by DHCP. quite often i find myself disconnected and when i check the connection properties it displays as if it is still connected and such but it says incorrect ip address. I cannot figure out for the life of me what is the problem , usually 1 or 2 reboots will correct this but it happens so frequently it is very annoying. My connection on another computer is strong and steady , that one being hardwired ,so i know it is not a problem with my provider. I tried the ipconfig at prompt and the correct gateway shows so this did not help me , if anyone has any suggestions please help me get a clue 8)

No interent connection


Your Linksys wireless router needs to be connected to a DSL or cable modem which needs to configured with the settings that your Internet Service Provider gave you.
To test your Internet connection connect a LAN cable fron your conputer to the DSL/cable modem. If you cannot connect to the Internet using this methos, you need to contact your ISP and the can check the connection to your DSL/cable modem.

Inter net browser opens but doesn't connect, internet connection is connected but cant connect to the browser? I'm using either Firefox or IE on a dell 8300 that had a vundo problem. since I ran a clean up...


this is typical, there's a new virus that overwrites the dns server details and the only fix for this problem is either to waste hours recovering dns or doing a clean installation will fix it. "clean installation means format the hard drive, and re-install your operating system"

please rate me.

Unable to connect to internet


well !! according to me you've got a programming problem in your modem due to electricity fluctuation so , to solve this check if u hv a user manual of your modem ... if u have then its really good...

u will find a re-programming isp code ...

now to solve this first switch your modem on then go to any browser and type in the isp code there which is somewhat like " 192.168.1.1 " etc.

type that in the address bar and click enter ..
find the reboot option in the menu and click it..
your modem will reboot and then your internet will start working again !!

now just connect to internet via your default connection ....
your problem is solved....

2wire modem not broadcasting wireless signal


are the lights on the modem detecting any connection? is your line still programmed for broadband? if your modem is connected at the phone exchange and the connection is at your house and all and none of your computers can connect to the net, not even the primary computer and you have called your technical team for broadband (can be company policy sometimes to call them) you may need a replacement modem. Tech support should do a ping and other tech things to try to get you connected. you may have a faulty modem which if it is new then you should be entitled to a warranty replacement. if it is a simple setting on your computer they should be able to resolve this, i know that when vista first came out there were a lot of support issues with bband providers being able to support the users.
