get in touch with the provider.and see what kinda network this is ...cause I believe that it is a Lan connection with a static IP and you need to know them in order to make the connection ... second...if another conputer was used...and now you used the same Ip address and all...probably it is limited by the Mac address and you have to either use a program to change your lan card address(MAC) to match the old computer one ....or you need to communicate the new one to the provider to free the access...
Either the network requires you to manually configure your ip settings(unusual but not unheard of) or your wireless adapter is not set to get settings from DHCP. Check to verify that your wireless adapter is set for DHCP and if this is correct then you'll need to contact the administrator for the wireless AP and haver them check their settings.
Make sure you have Wireless network adapter driver installed.
Manually assigned IP address and DNS address as earlier (if your IP setting is not automatically assigned by DHCP server).
If you are using router set your Router IP address as your Default Gateway Address.
If you are using Internet through a Proxy Server then Open "Internet Explorer ", Click "Tools", Click "Internet options", click on tab called "Connection", Click "Lan settings" Button. Remove "Automatically detect settings". Tick "use a proxy server for your LAN....." Type the IP address of your Proxy Server and the port no.
Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.
All right let's call your Vista computer A and your Xp computer B. First you have to bring the two computers into LAN. If you already did this, please skip the next eight steps.
Step 1: In Vista, before doing this you should enable Sharing and Discovery. You can do that by going to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery, enable Network discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing and others if you want to. (See picture below)
Step 2: If your LAN card that is connecting to another computer is installed, it will be shown under Control Panel -> Network Connections.
Step 3: Right click that local area connection and click properties.
Step 4: Under the tab ‘Networking’, click the properties Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
Step 5: Click the radio button to ‘Use the following IP’ and give an IP address (For example, IP address: 192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0)
Step 6: Don’t give any other information, Click Ok and close everything.
Step 7: In computer B, which is the XP, make sure you enable the LAN card which is used to connect to computer ‘A’. Here you need not give any IP information as Computer ‘A’ will assign an IP address dynamically. If it’s not working make sure there are no IP assigned and change the properties to ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’.
Step 8: Test the connection by pinging. (You can do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 or whichever is Compter ‘A’s IP in the comand prompt)
NOW your computers are connected. Now to share the internet:
Right click LAN card which is connected to Internet under Control Panel -> Network Connections and click ‘Sharing’ tab and enable both the options to share Internet. (Note: Unless there is another enabled LAN setting you will not be able to see the shared tab under properties)
Click Ok and close. This option is given by the Windows OS known as ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).
Now you can use Internet from both Computer A and Computer B from a single connection.
So this is the setup you need on the Host computer as you requested, if you turn out to need help witht he XP one too, let me know:)
This is not the manufacturer's site, but i will try to help.
Is it your own network?
You need to make sure that the network is not protected, or you'll need the password.
Go to Start>Control Panel on your computer
Then go to Network Connections
There should be an icon for your wireless connection.
Right-click -> select Properties In the selectbox select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' Click Properties Check if 'Obtain an IP-address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS-server' are selected If they were not, Press <Ok> two times and try to connect to the wireless network again.
Can you also tell what IP-address you get? Find it by going to Start > Run Type 'cmd' without the quotation marks and press <Ok> you get a black command box type 'ipconfig', again without the quotation marks and press <Enter> Please tell me the IP-address it tells you...
