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!

    Hi...you'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.

EdiMax Br-6482nS doesnt give internet


A router is only used to connect devices together in a LAN (local area network). In order to get out to the internet you also will need a modem (cable or dsl depending on your service) You will also need to pay for service through an ISP (Internet Service Provider)

You need to install a software that will manage your LAN's video recording. That software should work fine within your LAN and is usually provided with the Video Capture Cards where your cameras are connected. This software should have a web portal for you to access via internet utilizing your forwarded port. Thus, you must tell your video software to use your forwarded port for internet viewing. Without this web portal, you can't access your remote LAN videos via internet.

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.

Laptop can't see my network


It does sound like you may need to upgrade firmware. Not sure what router you have but you can download firmware & install from the router's website.

You might like to try:

1. Disable Windows Firewall

2. In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then the LAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" button.

3. If you have any third party software, I would get rid of this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Services menu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.

Interestingly, Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - you could see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless. It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code & see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.

Laptop says excellent connection - not able to access internet


connect laptop to router using lan cable.
check internet connection. Should be ok.
Only then enable wireless using same WLAN protocol you use on Router: WEP or WPA with same encryption key TKIP or AES.
Be sure no access list enabled on Router or add Laptop MAC address to access list.

Apple user attempting to fix dad's dell laptop windows xp home edition


I'm confused because you say your trying to make a lan connection on the dell laptop but your connecting it via firewire into a DSL modem. doing this method would be a WAN connection and not a LAN connection. To make a lan connection you need to connect the laptop via network cable (or wireless connection) to a router that is connected to your actiontek dsl modem.

I can help you connect the laptop to the internet but 1st i need to know if your trying to connect it to a router or did you want to do a wan connection from the dsl modem.

Thanks,
Brad Nelson

Wi Fi fine, ISP fine, no internet via LAN connection though.


Make sure your firewall is not blocking your ability to go to websites. I saw this the other day, somehow the users firewall was set to block all internet traffic out of the computer.
