I searched this website yesterday and it gave me a clue to connect Lan to my modem at home and check if my browser dispaly i.e. yahoo.com when typed as an IP address. And it did work. the same now at work while am conencted wirelessly.
So what's happened to my browser? is it anything fairly easy that I can do myself to bring my browser to the normal functionality to surf internet with typing proper website address?

    I have checked and I have all necesarry settings, IP subnet mask gateway, dhcp and dns 1 and dns 2. I think the problem might be somewhere within my laptop or just browser itself. Connection seems to be ok and when I type ip address for yahoo it goes on. I have just removed nasty bug as well which I thought migh cause hijacking my IE but it looks like it didn't change anything and browser still doesn't work.

Check in your "Network connection details" if you have a DNS adress. If it is like 0.0.0.0 you can't acces internet locations by name (like www.xxx.com)

I have a HP 6735s notebook. The LAN is simply not working. It appears as it would, but eventually it doesn't (says cable is not plugged in) after a second of working. I have the same issue on Win XP...


I'd say your problem lies in the configuration of the router. There are a couple of things to check. First, you need to be sure your modem and router don't have the same IP address. You can find this out if you hook the computer to just the router--using one of the 4 LAN ports. Hook it up and start the computer. Then from the command line type CMD. When you get the black window in the screen, type IPCONFIG. Look at the gateway value which will be toward the top of the screen. It should read something like 192.168.1.1.
Now do the same thing between your computer and the modem. First turn off the computer and also turn off the modem. If your modem has a backup battery (many cable modems do) you will have to take it out to completely power down the modem.
Now hook the computer to the modem, turn on the modem and then start the computer.
Do you have an internet connection? If you are not on cable, find the IP address just like I told you to, above. Is the IP address of the modem the same as the one you found for the router? If so, follow the directions in the router manual for changing the IP so it won't conflict with the modem.

Dell inspiron 1525 not connecting to internet


Hi,

I am one of the Dell Certified System Expert.

For internet connection, there are two ways to connect to the internet. One is through wired connection (connecting LAN cable) and connecting to wireless connection (through wireless router or through wireless Modem WLAN).

For wireless check the switch located on the left side of the portable after switching check the status light located at the front left of the computer.

check the driver if it is properly installed meaning no bang(!) or question mark(?) for both ethernet (LAN port) and Wireless Device.

To check the driver go to control panel then device manager. Check the network and you should be seeing the ethernet and wireless device. If not installed use the driver cd that came with the computer.

How to check the internet connection.
For Wired connection:
First check the cable, check the LAN port in the computer there should be blinking lights, if none try to reseat the cable. Check the ipaddress of the computer and the default gateway.

This is the instruction to get the IP address and default gateway.

For windows xp
1. Click start, then choose run then on the box type CMD then click ok.
2. on the black screen type ipconfig. get the ip address and default gateway.
3. normally it will give you 192.168.XXX.XXX
4. try to type ping 192.168.XXX.XXX (this should be the gateway)
5. If you receive replies, then you are connected to the router/modem
6. then try to ping www.yahoo.com
7. if still reply then you are connected to the internet already, might be your issue is browser or security on the computer.

For vista and Windows 7
click windows then in the start search type cmd, you should be seeing cmd on the top, right click then choose run as administrator. then follow steps 2-7 above.

For wireless connection
Check the switch, and the status light, if all are checked checked the ip address and default gateway as well, the instruction is the same above.

For more information about setting up your system please refer to the link.

Dell pc wont pick up internet


There are wide issues that may occur, with a issue with "dell pc wont pick up internet" is very general, so please be specific, however i went over most issue step by step, hope this help
Make sure you have the correct IP scheme for your network. This would include the:
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS Servers
Click on start, run, type in cmd, The run IPCONFIG /ALL. A sample where a router is used is in the following graphic.
IP Address:
If you have a router, common examples would be:
192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x or 10.0.0.x
If you are directly connect to your DSL or Cable Modem, you should have an IP address that would correspond to something from your ISP.
What you don't want to have is something like 169.254.x.x. This means you are not getting and IP address assigned and needs to be resolved first.
Subnet Mask:
Also make sure you have the correct Subnet Mask. Most commonly this would be 255.255.255.0
DNS Servers:
Make sure you have the correct DNS Servers.
Sometimes this is the IP address of your router, so it would be the same as the Gateway IP.
Sometimes (as in this example), it is the actual DNS servers used by the ISP.
Possible causes for not getting an IP address assigned are:
1. Defective cable, network card or port on the router. Make sure you are using all known working components.
2. Your router is not configured for DHCP (which would automatically be assigning IP addresses).
This and can be done from that same command prompt you used to run IPCONFIG
2. Try pinging the router's IP address
e.g. ping 192.168.1.1
If you get a reply, then your connection to the router is working.
If you don't get a reply, then you need to double check your network card, cable, port on the router. You might also see if any other computers on the network can do the same.

3. Try pinging an external site by IP address
e.g. ping 4.2.2.1
If you get a reply, then you have a connection to the Internet.
If you don't get a reply, there are several things you can try:
1. Double check that the router is connecting to the Internet. Typically you can access the router through your web browser and check it's status.
2. Take the power off your DSL/Cable modem and Router. Plug the modem back in a wait a minute or so. Plug the router back in and wait a minute or so. Then restart your computer.
3. WINSOCK Fix - It is possible that the WINSOCK Registry entries have gotten corrupted. This is getting to be a more common problem. See WINSOCK FIX for clean ones you can download

4. Try pinging an external site by Name
e.g. ping www.yahoo.com
If you get a reply, then you have a connection to the Internet and DNS is working
If you don't get a reply, there are several things you can try:
1. Double check your DNS entries
2. You many need to use the same DNS IP address that your ISP or Router is using.
3. On rare occasions your ISP has problems with their DNS servers. But that is rare in comparison to misconfigured computers.

If your PING tests work but you are having problems browsing sites on the Internet
1. If you could ping external sites by both IP address and Name, but cannot browse the web, likely your web browser is misconfigured.
2. Double check that you don't have an incorrect or not needed Proxy server assigned.
For the Internet Explorer - Tools / Internet Options / Connections tab / LAN settings button. Uncheck both Automatically detect settings and Use a proxy server for your LAN.

LAN connection won't work, but wireless does


It sounds like the LAN card may be going bad. You can see if manually setting the IP address in the settings of the LAN card will work. If that works, then the card's routine for negotiating IP address assignment is corrupted. You maybe able to get some more useful life out of it by doing this until you can replace the LAN card itself. If you need more instructions on how to set the IP address manually, reply back and I'll try to step you through it.

Internet connection problems


Troubleshooting Internet Connection Problems The purpose of this section is to give general tips
on troubleshooting your Internet Connection

While there are many possible configurations, I'll try and cover the most common ones.

Making Sure You Have Correct IP Information
Basic PING Tests
Browser Configuration

Making Sure You Have Correct IP Information 1. Make sure you have the correct IP scheme for your network. This would include the:
  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Default Gateway
  • DNS Servers
2. There are a few ways you can see what IP addresses are being assigned.
But generally for:Win9x - Start / Run / command
Windows2000/XP/Vista - Start / Run / cmd
The run IPCONFIG /ALL. A sample where a router is used is in the following graphic.
ipconfig.jpg 3. IP Address:
If you have a router, common examples would be:
192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x or 10.0.0.xIf you are directly connect to your DSL or Cable Modem, you should have an IP address that would correspond to something from your ISP.

LAN AND WLAN


Hi,

Sometimes when dealing with IP addresses, DNS, etc... you system does not update automatically. in your case, i think you are having a problem of renewing IP address and gateway... open Run CMD.
type ipconfig /release.
this command shall release all automatic IP. then you do ipconfig /renew. this shall renew the ip address.

Dell latitude E4300 wont connect to internet


Recently I purchased an Vostro 1310 for my mother as her Inspiron 1100 was dying; I installed all the drivers everything was peachy but frustratingly enoguh I could not connect to our home modem -

I alleviated this issue by taking it off obtain ip address automatically.

Then I put the following data in

IP 10.0.0.3
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Gateway 10.0.0.138

DNS preffered 10.0.0.138
Alternate Blank


I had to assign the laptop an IP as you can see and point it in the right direction which was to my modem. So all you need to do is find his modems default path and it should be sweet.

After I applied these changes it had no issues connecting - It might be a conflict of ip assigning on the network.

Before you rate get back to me if it didn't work - I want to help you solve this issue and get a Fix Ya! rating ;)
