Internet connection problems

I have 3 pcs on a home network. 1 (wireless) and it works fine this is winxp sp2 and has no problems. the other 2 computers are win xp sp3 and have restrictions for some reason to certain sites online. i have no microsoft and no avg. not just updates but i just cannot connect on thier sites at all. i can go any where else online (so far) but i imagine i will keep finding more places i cannot go to. i know i can come to fixya.com. i am sharing a printer and a internet connection over the router. im not sure what else to check.

    thank you for the quick response. i have 2 firewalls. the default windows one and zone alarm both are turned off. and also i have tried installing firefox and opera webrowsers and these are doing the exact same thing. it seems from asking around that everyone wants to say its a virus hijacking the dns. only because of the 2 websites its blocking (avg and microsoft). but the kicker is that both of these computers are coming off of a fresh format of about a week ago.



    all security settings in the control panel are set to low a dn to allow as much as possible.

    thanks again for the help

Check firewall settings and maybe something is blocked their. Also go to IE security and check for any blocked sites that might have been aded by mistake. If their are parental controls on PC that might be why as well.

Internet connection sharing


To share an internet connection, you need to have two network connections, one for the internet connection, and another for your network.

If your DSL has a USB connection, plug it into one of your computers and then then go through the network setup wizard, from there it will walk you through sharing an internet connection.  

If all the computers have wireless, you can set up an adhoc network, and share the connection that way.

Honestly, the easiest method would be to go out and buy a router.

Internet access problem with a Linksys 54g router


Try setting the default gateway on the laptop to the ip address of your ICS gateway machine. Some routers separate the wireless and LAN connections on different subnets.

Try comparing your laptops ip information with that of one of the working wired computers. You can do this by going to Start up to run and type cmd then click "ok"

At the black prompt screen type "ipconfig" without the "".

You want to compare the IP Address, Submet Mask, and Default Gateway.

If one has an ip of 192.168.1.* and the other has 192.168.0.* then the wireless and wired are on seperate networks.

If the subnet masks are something like 255.255.255.0 and 255.255.255.1 they are on seperate subnets. Both should be fixable by putting in the same default gateway.

For example if your ICS gateway is 192.168.1.1 then set that as the default gatway on the wireless laptop. This can be done by going to start >> Control Panel >> Network Connections then right click your wireless connection and goto properties then double click on the "Internet Protocol (tcp/ip)" option. This will list all of your ip information (if its static) if its dynamic (ip gotten from router) you can still click "Use the following DNS server address" and set preffered dns to the gateway ICS ip. Or click "Advanced" and click Add under Default Gateways and add the gateway ICS ip there.

Connection problems


Hi,
Your query "is there anyway...remove...wireless network connections 1-8 ...solely on 3?"

In your Device Manager, delete all instances of the wireless network connection except # 3.

However in WinXP, the default setting of the Device Manager is to  hide certain devices (like printers, non plug & play devices and removable devices not currently installed/connected).

In your Device Manager, pls click on "View", check "Show Hidden Devices." Thus enabled, all hidden devices (whether multiple or not) will now be displayed.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
