Unable to access the internet via my laptop

I recently installed McAfee and assigned a security key. The laptop indicates that I am connected to the network; however, it tells me that there is no internet connection. I have tried the repair connection several times and the wireless router works fine with a second 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.

Sounds like you just need to power cycle your router and laptop. Turn off your laptop and pull the power on the router for a couple mins. Plug the router back in and wait till it is completed its boot cycle and then reboot your laptop. It will assign it a proper internal IP address at that time.

1. Each wireless device has to be allow to connect to the router via a specific IP address assigned by the router in its router table.
It also can setup a wireless device, such as a laptop or phone via a MAC Address ( Media Access Control) number that is assigned to almost every wireless device.
Here is an instruction set to follow to set up your wireless device in your router ( it is generic but works).


.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 ot 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Connection issues


To troubleshoot the issue follow the below steps

1.Try disbaling and enabling the wireless lan card

2.Check whether Ip addresses assigned in the wireless network card.If the address is assigned by dhcp and not assigned in network card means assign static ip in the range supported in the networkand ping the website or gateway.

3.If the ip is assigned already means try pinging the gateway and dns server .If ping is success means the connection between router and pc and internet is good .In that case you have to check whether authentication is successful if any authentication is used.

Wireless connection problem


That is the correct access IP address to acces the router properties.

If its a forgotten password you will need to "reset" the router to default by straightening out a paper clip and insert it into the rear of the router till it reboots.

BEWARE this will wipe username and password for the internet and security key. If you dont know your U/N and P/W then call the ISP to reset it.

To enable the above access the router by using the above IP address and re-insert U/N and P/W.

Access security options in the router menu and follow instructions to recreate security password.

Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router Issue Allows 1 Computer at a time


Your router my not be DCHP enabled or it might not be assigning the IP addresses either.

I would do a reset and start all over with your security settings and see if that works. Worst case scenario you could always turn security off when your parents or others are there.

Symptom You are trying to access the Belkin router’s Web based Configuration page and you are not able to do so. You can access the Configuration page from any computer behind the router.
Resolution To address this issue, follow the instructions below:
  1. First check for the physical connections between the computer and the router. There should be a cable (cat5 or above) running from one of the LAN port of the router to the Ethernet card in the computer.
  2. If the computer is wireless, it should be associated to the Router/AP.
  3. Check for any firewalls (Mcafee, Norton Internet Security) on the computer, which should be disabled.
  4. Check for an IP Address on the computer in the range of the router i.e. 192.168.2.x (x can range from 2 to 254). The router also assigns an automatic IP address to the computers in the range 192.168.2.x (x can range from 2 to 100). For instructions on how to check the IP address on the computer, Refer to Article 13.
  5. If you are not getting an IP Address on the computer from the router you will need to manually assign an IP Address to the computer.
  6. You also need to restore the Internet Explorer browser to its default settings.
  7. Go to Control Panel and click Internet options. Select the Program Tab and click on Reset Web Settings.
You should be able to get the router's configuration page if the above instructions are followed in order.
Cause You not being able to logon to the router's configuration page could be due to the following reasons:
  1. The computer is not able to establish connectivity with the router (wired or wireless). This can happen due to physical reasons E.g.: Improper cabling, bad cable, and no wireless signals.
  2. The computer not getting an automatic IP address from the router (DHCP ** assigned).
  3. Firewalls (Mcafee, Norton Internet Security) on the computer blocking the communication between the computer and the router.
  4. Improper browser settings (Internet Explorer)
** Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
Summary The Router is a configurable device and you can manually log into the router’s configuration page to set its various operating parameters like connection type, security features and options to update the router’s firmware.

Main PC can't connect but others can!


I had this model of router quite some time ago. I had some bad experiences where when I tried to login to it I was unable to, the web based management interface would not respond (as you have described) . Resetting the device would resolve this I would recommend trying that. Unplug it, wait a few minuets and plug it back in. Then try again to access the management interface. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or whatever via a web browser.
