Can't connect to internet with public wireless connection

Last week when I tried to connect to a public wireless connection that I used frequently without any problems, the computer showed that it was connected, but it wouldn't go to any websites giving me the same message it would have if I weren't connected. I tried checking the connection and the adapter by running diagnostics, but everything got an okay. The troubleshooting guides didn't help either. A few days later I tried to connect on two different public wireless connection, but the computer did the same thing. I tried to repair the connection but couldn't and received the reply: unable to disable connection adapter. I also tried disabling some add-ons with no luck. What do you think the problem is, and what can I do to fix it? Thanks!

Hello
Wow youve done almost everything here.How about the firewall? is it blocking any connections?

Next,Go to control panel,network and sharing center.Look and see if the pc or laptop in question is on the same network,meaning home or public.

Set all your machines to the same network.Either home or public.I do know this has been a win 7 problem.

My toshiba satellite laptop want connect tothe internet


It could be a couple things: 1. Try connecting using the wired connection if you can. If it works, then problem most likely with wireless. 2. Try connecting wirelessly maybe using a public WIFI hotspot or a friend's connection. That will rule out your router. 3. It could be a browser issue: Start / Run / Inetcpl.cpl and then check the Internet settings. Make sure there are no proxy settings set.

Other routers taking over my router connection even when password


Its possible you have no authentication setup on your router. At the very least, please setup your router and all devices in your network to have WEP authentication. If your router and devices can handle it, please setup WAP or WAP2 authentication (instead of WEP). This should make your environment a lot more secure and prevent others from taking over your router.

Excellent Wireless Network Connection, cannot access internet


The unsecure public network nay be using mac address filtering. In this case, the network will show as being unsecured, and will even allow you to connect in some cases, but then will not allow you to surf once connected.

Low signal from my wireless adaptor / router


Have you tried connecting the laptop in a different wireless network? Try changing the channel in your router and you may also upgrade the firmware of your router.

Internet connection lost..


Firstly try the Off Line option, sometimes this can be ticked. Or go into the Netword Card settings and try to force the speed to auto config, this will enable different speed connections

Connection to the internet.


If it worked for a long time then stopped, there might be a new wireless transmitter around. XP is awful at picking a connection back up once it drops. Does it drop less when the computer is closer to the transmitter? You might try changing the channel that your unit is broadcasting on.
