I just installed the Dynex wireless LAN 802.11g Notebook Card. It installed successfully and I am able to make a connection however when I try to connect to the internet I get a Cannot find server or DNS error. I have a Toshiba SatellitePro 4200 laptop that runs Windows 2000. I have checked the Device Manager and it shows that the card is running properly. Any advice?
1- Try setting your own DNS server settings, right click on your network connection > properties > TCPIP v4 > edit DNS settings ( use dyndns.com as a dns for example). 2- Try refreshing your DNS cache: start > run > cmd > and type: ipconfig /flushdns

It may be your Lan settings not configured.To check this go to tools in int explorer and click on connections/LAN/SETTINGS.Make sure the box,"Automatically detect settings,"is ticked.
Try turning off the wireless router fo 30 secs and then power it up again. When the LEDs light up, then boot up the HP laptop.
If this doesn't work, then check the laptop to see if the wireless router issued the HP laptop with an IP address. to do this - click on Start - Run - type cmd and press Enter. This will open a DOS command box, then type ipconfig and press Enter.
If the IP address returns 0.0.0.0 then the wireless router didn't issue the HP with an IP address and either the wireless router is faulty or the wireless card is faulty or it has lost its LAN configuration.
If the wireless router LEDs are all on, try connecting a LAN cable direct to the LAN port on the router and the laptop to see if it connects to the Internet. If it connects then install the latest wireless card driver and configure it with the wireless router's settings.
well!! I have an answer for you.your comp is loosing the IP address.first connect your computer via cable then
goto start - programmes - accessories - dos prompt.
type ipconfig.you`ll get ip address,subnet mask,default gateway.copy it.
goto network and sharing center in vista and network connection under control panel in XP,IN Vista,click on view status,goto properties and double click on internet protocol(tcp/ip) or IPv4In XP,right click wireless network connection and goto properties and double click on internet protocol(tcp/ip).type in the IP address,subnet mask,default gateway.in DNS server address type the default gateway in primary DNS and in secondary 22.214.171.124.
your connection won`t drop after this.
Here is a link to the page where you can download the drivers for your notebook card. Click on networking, then the link for the notebook card. There are two, one for desktop and one for notebook, make sure you choose the correct one.
If not done allready, setup the lan IP address and default gateway in win98 Click MyComputer-ControlPanel-Network-Double Click TCP/IP Adapter for your 3com device-insert LAN info for IP Adress-subnet mask, Gateway and your Internet service providors DNS Addresses info Tab's (3x different Tabs "IP Adress" "Gateway" "DNS Configuration")
IP Adress will be at least one number higher than your gateway address and not allready being used by other PC's on your network and gateway address will same as your router interface address subnet mask will be the same for all PC's on your network.
For 3com and Netgear routers LAN setup is usually
Gateway = 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
IP Adress = 192.168.1.10(choose alternate number than 10 if allready used by another PC on your network, try to use round numbers, must be a number higher than 1)
Once all info is entered click OK (this may trigger a database info update message and task)now your LAN is setup and ready to talk to your network
Restart PC and try browsing again. May possibly require reinstallation of the TCP/IP client (you double clicked this to setup your LAN in Win98) or reinstallation of the IIS(Internet Information Services)component found in, Add/Remove Programs-Add/Remove windows components and then try LAN setup again if this does not work first time round
