SOURCE: cant connect to the internet

It means that either your computer or router is not getting a DNS address from your Internet provider. DNS is essentially the 411 service for the internet. You type in www.hotmail.com and your computer ask the router for the number, if it doesn't know it asks a computer at you internet provider and so on.

If the settin for the address for dns is missing either on your laptop or on your router it will not be able to find the address and like trying to make a phone call without a number you'll never get through.

Easiest solution is to call your internet providr and tell them that exact error message, then tell them you want to manually input their DNS server address(s) into your computer.

They will need to know what version of windows you're on then they can tell you where to go and what address to punch in.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

SOURCE: computer shows connected to the internet but cannot be use

There are a few possibilities here.  One of the more common ones is that you haven't paid your internet service bill, and they've turned off your connection to the internet.  If so, you can usually still get to your ISP's address (e.g., verizon.net or comcast.net), where you will be prompted to log in and give new credit card information.

Another possibility is that you have a spyware/adware/virus/malware infection.  You'd need to install and run a package like SpyBot, AVG, or BitDefender (all free and quite good).  Since you can't surf to these sites, you'd need to download the package onto a flash drive from a connected computer.

Another possibility is that there really is a problem with the upstream DNS server or your computer's TCP/IP (internet) settings.  Getting to these settings is different for different versions of the Windows operatingn system (grrr... Bill Gates is the devil incarnate).  Usually, setting the DNS server to be selected by DHCP works.  Alternatively, you can manually specify the OpenDNS servers:
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

If the problem really is with the upstream DNS server, you'd still be able to connect to purely numeric IP addresses, like, for Google:
http://64.233.161.147

If that numeric address won't work, you might need to look at your upstream connection devices, like router or modem or the physical wire/cable connection to the modem.

SOURCE: cannot connect to internet

Is the DNS server internal or on the Internet? Try setting DNS manually to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 which are free Google DNS servers and try again.

SOURCE: connected to optimum wi fi cannot connect to

Try using the below suggestions:

It is looking for a password (WiFi Network Key) You have to double click on the little computer icon down in the right tool bar area, the one with the two side radiating arcs, and possibly has a small red X under it. The red X indicates that it is NOT connected. When you double click on that icon a window called RT28701 opens up, then you click on Wireless Information tab, then you cursor down to the name of your WiFi and high light it and click the connect box. Then another window opens up called Network Properties. Uncheck "The key is provided automatically" box. This will allow you to type in your "Network Key", the password that protects your network from outsiders. This "KEY" was set up when you installed the router on your server computer. If this does not work at first, turn the machine over on it's back and using a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonally from the right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy of everything including the WiFi RT28701 driver.

sometimes this driver gets confused. See my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing


Additional Information


When I try to sign on with the red X showing, I get "The page cannot be displayed If I then double click on the icon down in the right corner I elucidated above, RT28701 opens up to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with all zeros in the IP address field, and Subnet Mask, with no entries in the default gateway. That is a clue to me that the auto sign on has not found a viable network or needs something else. If I then click on Wireless Information tab, The list of available networks appear in the box. The machine keeps trying to associate my previous entered name site with my prefered site and tells me the signal is good, but it cannot link up. This is a signal to me that it has lost my Network Key or that the software has failed or both. I then click on advance and delete my prefered network and hit OK, this will force the software to ask me for my network again, and notice that the prefered is missing. I click on the name of my network again and then hit connect., then the Wireless Network properties window opens up and I can insert my Network Key again after I uncheck the "The key is provided automatically" box. I enter the key and hit the OK button. I still do not get a connection, so I reboot the machine, and wait for about 30 seconds and the machine synchs up because the little RED X under the icon has disappeared. Now the machine will hook to the internet as long as I want to, but sometimes when I turn the machine on it will not synch, so I go through the above sequence again. The secret is once you have entered your key and ask for the machine to synch up you have to reboot. Why? I do not exactly know, but I suspect that the WiFi driver looses it

Have netflix hooked up to wii, have code 52130 what does this mean


Error Code: 52130 Was this information helpful?The Wii is unable to connect to the Internet
Likely cause: The wireless router is incorrectly connected, or the Wii console will need a DNS manually entered.
How to fix: Check the way your router is connected; manually assign a DNS to the Wii.
  1. Check the connections to your wireless router:
      Even if you are able to get a working Internet connection to your computer through the wireless router, if it is not properly connected to the modem, the Wii and other devices may not be able to use it.
    • Most routers have five (5) ports on the back. Typically there is a set of four, with a single port either farther away from the rest, or separated with a different color border or line. This single port is often labeled "Internet" or "INT." Make sure the cable coming out of your modem is plugged directly into this "Internet" port, and not into one of the other four that are grouped together.

  2. Manually change your Wii console's DNS settings. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Access the Wii system settings (how to), and use the right arrow twice and select "Internet."
    2. Select "Connection Settings," and choose the connection file (1, 2, or 3) that are you are currently using.

How to connect my Linksys router with my wi tribe modem?? my laptop pick up the wireless signal and can connect,,it says "connected" but when you open a page it says either "invalid server...


The Linksys Wireless router is fine, but your latop is not configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). The computer is connected to the router at layer 2, whereas HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), sits
atop the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) layer, and seems to be trying to
query the ISP's (Internet Service Provider) network for a nameserver (via DNS (Dynamic Name Service) protocol) that doesn't exist on the ISP's network. Configuring the laptop for DHCP and specifying no nameserver will fix this (the ISP's network will dynamically assign a DNS).

Its also possible (though a remote possibility) that your Linksys wifi router may be configured to disallow TCP/IP virtual circuits to/from your computer's IP address - but this is a really advanced
capability of your Linksys wifi router - few know this capability even exists.

Connecting multiple wifi devices to the Linksys router should be no problem, just configure them all to interact with the router using DHCP.

It is showing that i am connected to a wireless network, but for some reason it want let me get on the internet.


To get out to the internet your network set up has to have the router's ip number as the GATEWAY and your ISP's DNS numbers (tho auto detect should work for that. DNS is what allows your connection to find websites and domains).

Check to make sure your MODEM (from the ISP) is actually connected. Connect directly to it without your router to see if you get on the net. Or if you have other computers on your network can they get out to the net?

Is the wireless network it shows you connected to your own network? Or has it perhaps picked up a neighbor's wifi?

The most likely problem is that it isn't detecting the DNS. If it's not picking it up automatically would will need to know your ISP's DNS numbers/addresses.

We are unable to hook up to the internet


Are you trying to log-in/sign-up on the Playstation Network, if so, the PSN is currently down due to "external intrusions". Sony is working around the clock to restore service to the PSN. Though there is no given timeframe, Sony said that the PSN should be back in a day or two.
This maintenance will eventually help improve the quality of PSN and improve its stability.

Else, there might be a problem with your connection settings if you are connected to the router but can't use the PS3's web browser. Try changing the DNS.
Go to Internet Settings > Automatic > DNS - Manual
set this as your DNS
208.67.222.222 208.67.220.220 that is OpenDNS...in most cases it should work if you're encountering a DNS error.
