Re: laptop not connecting to internet
The wireless internet can be a couple of things.
try going on line and then go to file and make sure that it does not have a check make next to work off line, If that is not it then you need to tap the icon in the box with the internet with the x saying that you are no0t connected then you need to see if you can find your wireless connection and if not look on the left and set up a new connection and the information that it is going to ask you is all on the bottom of the wireless box. The code usually the sn# not the model number but the other one. hope that gives you more info then you had.

Did you set the IP address manually on the other computer? Is your router set to act as DHCP server and assign IP addresses automatically? If everything is set to DHCP then check the router and make sure it is transmitting on channle 10. Most providers set the cahnnel to 6 which has issues with HP laptops on occassion and maybe effecting you as well.
Your laptop seems to be hooked to your neighbours unsecured network automatically and it is going online with that. About comcast, when you connect a router to the modem or a computer to the modem, the modem has to be rebooted to give a valid IP to the connected device. If the modem is not rebooted the computer or the router will get 192.168.x.x IP address which is called private IP address.
It will be one of two things or both - either your computer is not
setup for DHCP or your router is using the same IP address as your ISP
To check ISP IP address connect your computer to your modem then: from start => run => CMD (hit enter after this) a command window opens, type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes. The line with "IP address" gives you your ISP IP addr. Compare this with what you get from your router manual if they are the same then do the following:
configure your computer to use a DHCP IP address, go to the Control
panel => network connections => Properties (right click on your
default connection) => double click Internet protocol (From general
tab) => (a new window pops up) from the general tab ensure that
"obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.
To change the IP address of your router check your manual and do the following: IP Addr => 10.10.1.1 Sub net mask => 255.255.0.0 Default gateway => IP address from your ISP Make sure to the router is set to act as a DHCP server.
it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems.
Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked.
Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address.
Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
this sounds as if either the router is not set at enable DHCP which gives your pc's and x box an automatic assigned ip address, so check in the routers settings via your web browser that DHCP is enabled, also go to your wireless network card and go to the properties, select the TCP/IP line, click properties again and make sure automatically obtain ip address is ticked, ok and close window.
Do the same with the Xbox in the network settings and make sure that automatically obtain ip address is highlighted and automatic DNS is set.
Lastly make sure non of the pc's network setup is set in a way that other pc's connect to the internet through this computer type set up, they should all be set up using the network wizard using the 'this computer connects to the internet through a gateway' setup, which is your router, but if your laptop is Vista, then everything should have set up automatically when a connection to your router was found.
Lokk in the routers DHCP clients and look to see if all your pc's and the Xbox is listed and given IP addresses.
