Verify your pc is in the same workgroup. You can do this in the control panel, systems. You will need to reboot after you make a change in workgroups. (If you need to make the change.) If you are in the same workgroup, go into your command prompt windows, and type "ipconfig /all" This will show you full configuration on your network. Good Luck.

Hp pavilion a330n Internet Explorer won't connect.


check your IP Adress settings are correct for this machine,
Go to start ,then click on run,Type CMD,Then type IPCONFIG/ALL.it will show you a list of all the devices connected to your machine and your local network,

Have you got LAN & WLAN adaptors on board?
this will explain your message,
you will have to set the ip settings on each adaptor
ie LAN 192.168.1.2 and WLAN 192.168.1.3
This wiil help determine which adaptor is to be used when connecting to the network and the internet.

If your using wireless on computer to connect to the internet then run your wizard to help setup the connection

Same for the wired LAN ,use your wizard

The settings for your modem can be reset easily and your ISP will help get you connected to the net because you already have an account with them,

Initially check whether the ip address is assigned in the computer in which internet is not browsing using the command ipconfig/all for windows and ifconfig for linux.If ip is present try to ping the default gateway ip address,if ping is success there is no issue in the cable you used and also with ip address.If ip is not assigned assign ip by manually or by using dhcp of router.Enable and disable the lan card in the router so that sometimes the problem get resolved.After ip is assigned and ping with router is ok .Ensure dns servers are correct else give google public dns server 8.8.8.8.Then try to ping www.google.com in command prompt if ping is success then you can browse.

Formatted pc and now its not detecting internet connection.. checked ipconfig but loks like my pc doesn't show no IP address.... everything else in d pc works fine except for the internet connection....


Did you reformat with the manufacturer's discs? If not, you are likely missing the LAN drivers for your NIC (Network INterface Card). Right-click on My Computer and select Manage. this will bring up the Device Manager screen, and if you see a yellow question mark next to the LAN driver then this is the reason.

How to setup network adaptor


Hi there,

Technically you should provide 'IP Address" to your network card. Generally IP address is provided by the ISP (Internet Service Provider) provider you are using.

Once you get the ip address you can configure it by right clicking on the my network>properties>TCP/IP setting.

This will work.

Also check that:

1. It is the DEFAULT printer in the computer you are using
2. Load driver again from the manufacturer's CD and not the WIndows driver.
3. Check your USB cable and consider trying a differnt cable also.
