Can't connect to internet

My laptop will not connect to LAN. I have tried using a cable to my modem and it still won't connect. About the same time that happened, I uninstalled my trial copy of NOrton 360 that was on the harddrive when I purchased the Laptop.

Norton may not be completely uninstalled. You need to get the uninstall utility from their website.

Reboot after you uninstall Norton completely and then reset your brower software back to the default.

If that does not work reset your cable connection from ISP. What you may have to do is unplug your cable modem and router. Wait a few minutes. Plug your cable modem back in first and then your router. Reboot your notebook and you will be back on line. Not sure why Norton does this but it just does.

Please post update and rate. Thanks

Seen this problem all too often. Did the uninstall of Norton 360 fail at any point? If it did (and sometimes if it didnt), youll need the Norton Product Removal Tool from Symantec's website. Use a friends comp or another machine and download the tool to a removable drive. Copy it over to the affected machine, run, and follow instructions. Restart the computer when its done. Check to see of you can connect afterwards. If not:
The next set of instructions are based on whether the OS on the laptop is XP or Vista:
XP: Download and run a tool called LSPfix. Run it and restart the computer when its done. THIS TOOL DOES NOT WORK ON VISTA--DONT BOTHER TRYING IT!!
Vista: Bring up a command prompt (Press and hold the Windows Key[Windows Flag key], then press the R key)
Type CMD in start search box
Press CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER to go to Commandf Prompt Administrator mode. Allow elevation to occur (enter Administration password if prompted)
Type the following (without the quotes):
"netsh winsock reset"; hit ENTER.
When its done, restart the computer. After restart, try connecting to LAN again.

Wireless antenna or wireless router


Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 with Win7 and cannot connect to the internet via high speed modem LAN cable. Internet works on my other computer using the same LAN connection, but it is running XP. I


So is your Modem from a phone company like AT&T? It sounds like it is because phone companies use what is called PPOE which is where the modem is configured with a userid and password to get out to the internet.

Cable providers use DHCP and don't require a userid and password.

If your other computer works using the network cable but your toshiba won't work using the same network cable, I think the phone company has configured your modem to only look at and accept your other computer. You can tell the modem to use specific MAC addresses which are unique to every device that attaches to the internet. You want your modem set up to use a range of addresses, not a specific one.

How to transfer my internet connection into my laptop?


I assume your existing computer is connected to the Internet with a LAN cable to your DSL or cable modem. In this case just move the LAN cable from your desktop computer and connect it to the LAN port on your laptop.
If this is not the case then you need to supply me with details of your Internet setup and the hardware configuration of your laptop including the make and model.

My modem can not detect my lan card, i am using presario v3000, what maybe problem?


Greetings - I think you're not clear about how using the Internet works (not many people are - especially starting out).

The modem and the LAN card are TWO DIFFERENT ways of connecting to the Internet. The modem uses a regular phone line and the LAN card uses Ethernet (a different faster way of connecting to the Internet in which needs further hardware such as a cable or DSL modem from your ISP).

Or is it possible you're talking about connecting your LAN card to your cable or DSL modem?

If this is confusing to you please call the tech support of your Internet service provider and they should be able to walk you through getting connected..

Good Luck and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

My netbook is connected and the signal strength is excellent but it won allow me to go to any websites


The signal strength is of the LAN modem. Only when the internet connection is provided to the LAN modem, you will be able to access internet on your notebook.

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.
