I'm connected to a wireless internet but I still can't get the internet to work


Hello.
in the Run window type ncpa.cpl then press Enter
Right click Network Connection/properties/TCP-ip4/ it should be on Automatic.

Be aware, older laptops catch only A,B,G wireless standard, not the N wifi standard.

Disable Antivirus and Firewall for testing purposes only.

Good Luck, PcTechPetru

My wireless network connection status in connected speed is11.0 and my signal strength is good but I cannot connect to the internet


Are you running any Internet Security software such as Norton? Also make sure your wireless router is actually connected to the Internet, just because your laptop is connected to the router doesn't mean the router is connected to the internet.

If you can, plug your laptop in to the router via an ethernet cable to make sure Internet access is working, alternatively if you have another computer connected to the router check the internet access on that one.

Also try doing a soft reset on the router, just disconnect from the power for about 30 seconds, reconnect, wait one minute then try again.

I want to connect to a wireless router with my laptopbut dont seem to the wireless drivers.i have tried to connectwith virgin media modem and router .followed all instructions and when i remove ethernet...


Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

When trying to wireless connect my laptop through my desktop pc connection fails. Have tried reconfiguration of both the 'DLINK' modem and the Laptop without success.


Try resetting your desktop back top a static configuration. ie: Do not assign a ip.
You system will assign a ip of 192.168.0.1 most likely.
Now, disconnect your modem from its power source and remove its battery for 30 seconds.
Next, disconnect your power source to the router or hub.
Now, go ahead and hook up your power connections to the router and install your battery and power connection to your modem.
Allow your modem to fully setup before attempting to go further.
Now, reboot your desktop and try your normal internet connection..
If it works ok, leave it and go to your laptop.
Leaving the desktop unit on, startup your laptop.
Your laptop should see the static address from the desktop and assign itself a different number, one that does not conflict with the ip address of the desktop.
Hope this works out well for you.

Internet/network problems


Connecting the laptop to your network using a network cable, does this solve your Internet problems?
Does this works without the Internet connection dropping out?
If the wireless connection has a low signal, try positioning the wireless router or the laptop to get a better signal strength.
Also try reinstalling your wireless driver.

Wireless laptop disconnects from internet when power cable connec


Does it reconnected again then? Or it never reconnects on the AC? I would try different channels on the wireless router first. Hopefully that will solve the problem do to some interference. If not, report back and I have other things you can try.
