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.

I have a hisense tv 32” how do I connect to wireless wifi

This would depend on the model and whether it was a SMART TV.

The internet connection is via a LAN cable or via your satellite or cable box to your Home Network. Your smartphone connect to wifi and via that to the television.

My WLAN says disconnected and it does not find my wireless says windows Cannot find any networks but my itouch working how do I get my laptop to connect again oh I restored to factory settings how do I get...

If you installed the adapter drivers you could have installed also the producers software.
In producers software can happen there is also theyr propretary software for Wlan management. The Windows Wlan management software cannot work if another Wlan management software is installed.
You have two option:
option one is to use producers software to scan wireless network and connect to your network via this software.
Check the box to instruct the software to use only Windows wireless management software and connect via Windows native software to your wireless lan.
Let me know if you solved your problem

I want to start inter net from my laptop what to do

Hello Punitrava, Hi, you can connect to the internet several ways, here are the common ones. 1. Via a free WIFI hotspot, find a WIFI area like in malls or coffee shops and enable you WIFI connection on your laptop. after enable the laptop detects the wireless connection and simply connect. 2. Via a USB modem, inquire about this on your wireless telephone company. 3. Via the Local Area Network like computer shops, insert any available LAN cable on your LAN connection, you need to consult the LAN administrator. 5. Via a DSL connection, just plug in the LAN cable from a DSL to your laptop. you need a DSL/internet account from your telephone company.

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.

Well, I would guess that if you are hooked up now, then you have a wireless router. If this is the case then you should have rj-45 (ethernet) ports on the back of it also for lan hook-up also. Must come with atleast 4 LAN ports, 1 WLAN port (for the incoming internet signal from your cable/dsl modem), so if you use a reg. ethernnet cord, then yes you should be fine hooking your ps3 to your network(via ethernet cable to your wireless router from the ps3).
Hope this helps...

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.
