Internet Connection Issues - Compaq CQ60.


Hi.

First of all go the modem, wireless router or both and turn them off at the source (plug socket) and wait two minutes, while you are waiting go to the laptop and restart it, go back to the modem/router ad turn them/it back on. See if you can connect to the internet when the laptop fully boots up.

Let me know how you get on.

Good luck!

How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif

  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
  12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
  13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
  14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
  15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
  16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
  17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
  18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
  19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.

Set up a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network


An ad hoc network is a temporary connection between computers and devices used for a specific purpose, such as sharing documents during a meeting or playing multiple-player computer games. You can also temporarily share an Internet connection with other people on your ad hoc network, so those people don’t have to set up their own Internet connections. Ad hoc networks can only be wireless, so you must have a wireless network adapter installed in your computer to set up or join an ad hoc network.

Click to open Connect to a Network.

Click Set up a connection or network.

Click Set up an ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, click Next, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

Notes
If one or more of the networked computers is joined to a domain, you need to have a user account on that computer to see and access shared items on it.

If the networked computers are not joined to a domain, but you want to require people to have a user account on your computer for access to shared items, turn on password protected sharing in Network and Sharing Center.

To turn on password protected sharing
Click to open Network and Sharing Center.

Under Sharing and Discovery, if password protected sharing is off, click the arrow button to expand the section, click Turn on password protected sharing, and then click Apply. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

An ad hoc network is automatically deleted after all users disconnect from the network or when the person who set up the network disconnects and goes out of range of the other users of the network, unless you choose to make it a permanent network when you create it.

If you share your Internet connection, Internet connection sharing (ICS) will be disabled if you disconnect from the ad hoc network, you create a new ad hoc network without disconnecting from the old ad hoc network for which you enabled ICS, or you log off and then log back on (without disconnecting from the ad hoc network).

If you set up an ad hoc network and share your Internet connection, and then someone logs on to the same computer by using Fast User Switching, the Internet connection will still be shared, even if you didn't intend to share it with that person.

I hope you all found this information useful and helpful.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

New internet explorer no internet connection


Adding a browser should not effect your internet access.
Do you still have your old browser?
Does it work?
Have you accessed your network connections and checked to see the
condition of your connection?
Did you configure your browser to work on your connection?
--On your browser click TOOLS and go to internet options.
--Check the CONNECTIONS tab
--Click LAN SETTINGS
--Check the box that says "automatically detect settings"
--Uncheck any other box.
If this does not work, u need to provide more info about your network settings.
