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 no internet connection when i connect my adsl router with enhwi g2 router in WAN, then from lan1 connect my pc. Please solve my problem. Tnx


First test to see that you can connect to the Internet by connecting directly to the modem.

If yes, then check that the cables are connected correctly and that the LEDs are on. (Just a check :). Telephone line to LINE IN on modem then Ethernet/Cat 5 from LAN port on modem to WAN port on Encore router, then Ethernet/Cat 5 cable from LAN port on router to PC.)

Use browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla) to connect to web interface of router (make sure your TCP/IP settings on PC are set to obtain IP address using DHCP).

Open browser and type in the IP Address of the router (192.168.1.1 is the default) where you usually type in the name of the website you want to go.

Go to the LAN Interface Setup page (you are now inside your router).

Change the IP Address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.89.1 (leave the subnet mask as it is).

Change the DHCP Client Range from 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.200 (the default) to 192.168.89.100 - 192.168.89.200.

Click on Apply Changes button.You may lose connectivity to the router, but you can reconnect by typing in the new IP Address 192.168.89.1. You may need to renew the IP address of the PC, but that can be easily done by rebooting the system if it doesn't happen automatically.

Let me know how you go, or leave a message if you still can't connect. I would ask that you tell me the model of the ADSL modem however.

Cheers

What is it?


default is http://192.168.1.1, but you can check by ip gateway (modem adress), on your computer.

check your local network connection:
if your modem is directly connect your computer, by usb or LAN the gateway adress is the same, you can test if go to the webrowser and type the same adress as before.

My laptop indicates that I am connected to my home wireless network. However, when launching IE, I only receive message that I am not connected to the internet.


Try a direct connection with the modem and check whether you are able to go online.If not then its your modems issue contact your isp or if it works with the modem then check the ip address of the computer and also the internet port address it should not be 0.0.0.0 if it is so your modem is not giving the public ip to connect to internet.If its a dynamic modem do a mac spoof.steps open the netgear smart wizard page.
click on basic settings under setup menu and in that window in the router mac address select "use computer mac address "option and click on apply.Now click on router status under maintenance menu and check the ip address in internet port(it should not be 0.0.0.0) and in lan port(eg 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.0.2).If you get all these correct then it can be browser issue delete temporary files and cookies or try with different browser.Hope this will help u.Rate me if i have hepled you.Thank you

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 ;)
