Cannot connect to internet via wlan but can lan

I have Pack Bell Laptop, R4630, which connects fine to the internet through ethnet but cannot connect to the internet via wlan. I have taken the laptop to my girlfriends house, who also has sky broadband. My laptop will not connect to her network either. Which leads me to believe that it is a problem with how the laptop is configured. The laptop connects to the router and has excellent signal strength. The router is 3ft away. The laptop then tends to disconnect and then reconnect to the router every few minutes. I have tried renewing the IP Address and manually assinging one but to no avail. I have tried disabling the McAfee but this still does not allow me to connect to the internet. I had disabled windows firewall but this has no effect also. I have tried to differ the the encryption from WPA to WEP but this also has no effect. My brother can connect wirelessly from his laptop and connect to the internet which is even more frustating that his works no problem. I have tried IPCONFIG/ALL, IPCONFIG/ RELEASE and IPCONFIG /RENEW but this also has no effect. I even doubted that the laptop was even wireless that is fow frustated it has become. I called SKY Help but they say call manufacturer. I call packcard bell and it cost £1.00 a minute and I have a feeling those "£$%$£" will string out the call for as long as poss which I can't afford with Xmas around the corner.So phones goes down. I have even tried to reinstalling the drivers, from Pack bell website, for wlan but this does not work. I am at my wits end, spent close to nearly 50hrs trying to amend this problem. Please, Please, Please can someone help resolve this issue and you will have my eternal thanks!

  • eecom May 11, 2010've tried just about everything! :) ... so a couple of suggestions....

    1) Take a look at this forum - it gets a lot more traffic, and you can go into your problem in more detail with the mods/posters there, till you get an answer;

    2) Maybe try a new wireless adaptor, either a card or USB, and see if it works.They are relatively cheap, cheaper than X minutes on the phone to Pac Bell perhaps....doesn't solve your problem but might (might) get you wireless for Christmas. Good luck.

The only thing that seems to be missing here is did you try another wireless card? If its built in you can get a usb wifi or pcmcia type. That will probably get you back online via wifi.

Pc restarts using wifi

Go into "Safe Mode" and un-install the WiFi drivers. Then remove the drivers completely using a program such as CCleaner. when you have done this. try and re- install the WiFi drivers from a known good source. if the problem persists you would seem to have a WLAN hardware problem. You could use DriverPack Solutions for your drivers. But I would suggest installing them with the computer in "Safe Mode".

Ethernet connection of DI-524 does not work

You have to make the Ip changes on the laptop not on the modem.
You said you have internet acces on one computer. Then use that computer to find out the exact IP address used by the modem.
On the laptop use the exact same numbers, (IP, Sub mask, Gateway, Primary DNS)
and chek if it works.
If you want to have both computers on the Internet, simply change the last number on the IP address ONLY.

Wirless connection wont connect to network.

On the WLAN world, exist a encryption key for connection. You will be able to see the "antenna", but until you enter the key you will not be able to access the network or the internet. First, disable the wireless security and try. Once you have verified the connection to internet then you add security. Use WEP.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Is IPAQ rz1710 bluetooth technology compatible or not ?

The 1710 does not have bluetooth. You would have to buy a SD bluetooth card and then you could connect to the internet via a bluetooth phone if the phone had internet access.
