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!

Lenovo G550 running Windows 7 won't connect to internet. "Default gateway is not available" message displays. I have 4 Vista computers using wireless connections all functioning fine, but this...


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.

Problem with my built in wireless


You'll need to visit Toshiba's site to locate and download the wireless drivers for your model. Reinstall the drivers and you'll have your wireless access again.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Wireless network access: 1 laptop fine, other not so much


Check the wireless card on the PC first. Go to "My Computer" then "Device Manager" and check to se if all the hardware is ok.

Use Control panel/netconnections to check to see if you still have a wireless connection and if it works. Also check "My Network Places." Try re-installing the drivers.

As a last resort....try System Restore if it's an XP or Vista system. Remember - using system restore will return the PC to an earlier time but you could lose some stuff so decide first.

My laptop is frequently having trouble detecting a connection to the internet


some of these websites limit the time port is open.. payment gateway will sometime cut the connection to protect the customer from potential identity theft... in a way this is good.. but it is frustrating for dial-up customers.
