With a wireless router setup.

  • Enable wireless adapter if it isn't on on the second laptop.

My laptop is connected to an internet connection but is doesn't connect to any websites?. and it says 'the internet connection was reset'.. what should i do?


Hello,

Try using a different browser on your laptop. If you are able to view sites using a different browser then you have narrowed the problem down to that browser.

If not, then try resetting your network devices. Turn off the modem and router and laptop. After 10 seconds, plug in the modem then after 30 seconds plug in the router then after another 30 seconds turn on the laptop. Are you still having trouble?

If so, try checking your internet browser settings. Make sure cookies is enabled and no sites are being blocked. You could also try lowering your security settings in the browser.

If you are still having trouble, try disabling any firewalls and anti virus programs you have running.

Double check you are actually able to communicate past your gateway by pinging some websites from DOS. If you are running windows go to Start and type CMD or Command in the run box. When the DOS window opens, do C:\ping www.google.com or try www.msn.com or www.fixya.com. If you get replies back then you know packets are reaching outside your local network.

I turn on net book plug in dongle that connects then i press internet connection it comes on for about ten seconds the goes off


What is going off - the internet or the netbook itself? When you say internet connection, do you mean the wifi toggle switch or the windows internet settings pane?

First, check and see if there are any buttons that get stuck (power button or wifi toggle button). Second, try using a software switch to turn on your internet connection.

My wireless network connection status in connected speed is11.0 and my signal strength is good but I cannot connect to the internet


Are you running any Internet Security software such as Norton? Also make sure your wireless router is actually connected to the Internet, just because your laptop is connected to the router doesn't mean the router is connected to the internet.

If you can, plug your laptop in to the router via an ethernet cable to make sure Internet access is working, alternatively if you have another computer connected to the router check the internet access on that one.

Also try doing a soft reset on the router, just disconnect from the power for about 30 seconds, reconnect, wait one minute then try again.

Unable to access the internet via my laptop


One of two problems. The Security Key for your wireless connection is wrong, or the McAfee is causing a problem. Most likely conflicting with any other virus software on your computer. Try removing McAfee from the computer and your solution should go away. Try another virus software such as Avast! Home edition. McAfee is known for having issues with wireless internet connections.

Second computer can't connect to the internet


Hi,
I had a similar problem when I got my laptop. What I did was type 192.168.2.1 (yours might be different because we have a wifi router plugged into a normal router, so try 192.168.0.1 otherwise) into the internet URL address box. This takes me to the Wireless Router's domain page. I then click on 'Wireless' and then it asks me for a password, which I leave blank because I never set one up, and now I am in the Wireless settings menu. I then click 'Use as Access Point' and then 'Enable'. Then I close the browser.
I then check my Wireless connections on the laptop and can see the router there in the list. I double click this and also make sure the 'Automatically connect to this network' is enabled. I wait a few seconds for it to detect and connect.. "Local and Internet Access"!
I open the internet browser and I am on my Google homepage.

Your settings will be slightly different, but essentially the same.
Try that.
Good Luck!
