Can't connect with my router

I have never had to pull a new IP on the lappy. When I try now, it says it can't because I am not connected to the iternet. When I boot up the laptop, and try to connect to my secure wireless connection I get the message "acquiring network address", and it just hangs up there. I never connect. This has just started since I put on a new modem last night... Any more suggestions?

This can often be an issue with security encryption. There may be a wrong key entered or the client adaptor does not support the encryption used.
To try and solve this first change the SSID on your wireless router (get access http://192.168.0.1 user=admin pass= blank (no pass) (default)) so your laptop will be forced to create a new profile. Then set security to basic WEP 64bit and try to connect again.

Update the wireless adaptors drivers.
If you have any third party Firewalls, try and temporarily disable them to make sure they aren't blocking it.

I reset my modem and now i cant get my wifi back on


If your modem pulled a new or different ip address and you did not reset your router it could be trying to use the old IP address and there would be a conflict. IP addresses usually have a lease of 24 hours, S if your IP was refreshed at noon and you reset your mdem and for sopme reason it obtained a new ip address the router would not be able to connect until noon the following day when it tried to refresh. Rebooting the router should cause it to sync back up with the modem and pull the correct IP address. You may need to log into your router and manually release and renew the IP address even after rebooting your router, I have seen a few routers that would still not pull the new address unless this was done.
My preferred method is to unplug power from the router, then reboot the modem. Only after the modem is synced back up do I plug power back into the router, so far this has seemed to work the best.

Bought a new acer 5750 laptop (i5 2nd Gen, 6GB RAM) which connected intermittently to my router. PC World phone help worked through network adapter enable/disable and then eventually a full default...


I would try:
1. updating driver
2. try connecting via Ethernet, if the issue is only wireless connectivity, try using a USB wireless network adapter, if that works means your lappy has a bad built in network adapter.
3. Are you locating laptop too far from router?
Good luck.

Can connect to 2wire, but can't browse


What is the ip address you got from the 2wire router. ??

Try release and renew for new ip. Clear the cache and temporary internet files, and then try pinging the router's gateway ip and check . If pinging. then ping any website's ip address. if successful then try going online. Else you need to power off and power on your router and then try again.

New mini computer says"acquiring network address" shows contected to netgear but won't access the internet


It means your router dhcp is not running proeprly.
You can set ip addreses manually.

for that go to my network places proeprty then you see your network adapter right click on it then go t oit's property then tcp ip .
Set ip addreses , subnet mask and gateway.

set your ip addreses if your router ip is 192.168.1.1 then you can set your computer ip is 192.168.1.2
subnetmask as 255.255.255.0
and set gateway as your router ip means 192.168.1.1

you can access your router with default link
http://192.168.1.1
or http://192.168.0.1

type user name a s"admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"

then check its ip and settings.

Secondary computer will not connect wirelessly; IP address problems.


If the router is not assigning an IP then you are probably not actually connecting to the network. Try disabling your wireless security on the router and see if they connect. If they do then you know the problem lies in that direction.

Home computer is connected but cannot get laptop to connect


If your router has a password, it needs to be typed into the other laptop, also the router may not be giving out enough IP addresses, so go into the router configuration (usually on the computer that can connect to the internet by typing 192.162.1.1, or 2.1 or something similar usually ending in .1 , into the address bar (where the www. goes) in internet explorer. Explore those settings a little, be sure to disable anything you see requiring security or and kind of filtering (wether it be IP mac address, etc)

Also, make sure that your laptop can connect with the router in the first place. If it can't then there could be an issue with the laptop, like you could have a wireless N router, and your laptop may only have a wireless A card (which wouldn't usually work).

I hope this helps somewhat.
Stay spicy and happy lappying :)

Can't connect with my router


The laptop CAN NOT have the same IP address of the desktop because is another station.
The IP address is generated automatically from your wireless router, one different for each computer that you have on the network.

For that reason you have to renew the ip on your laptop.

******************************************************************
To set a wireless connection do this

Click your Start Button
Select and click Control Panel
Select Network Connections
Select Wireless Network Connections
Right click
Select View Available Wireless Networks
5. Highlight the network you want to connect to
Click Advanced
6. Select the wireless network tab
7. Highlight the network in the available networks window
9. Click configure
9. IN the Properties Window
Double check the SSID (network name)
Enter the WEP KEY provided to you by the office
Click OK

Static IP


What do you mean new IP address, you are trying to connect to the router, or are you trying to connect to the internet? If you are trying to do this from your PC, check if you have DHCP enabled. Go to [Start > Settings> Network Connections]
Then right click on Local Area Connection and select properties.
Then on the list select TCP/IP and select the properties button.
Then the window comes up you should have obtain IP address automatically radio button selected, if not do it and hit Ok then ok on the next window
Hope that helps,
