    The most likely culprits as I see it:

    1. Driver corruption/failure: it claims to be fine, but really isn't. A fresh copy can do wonders.

    2. Winsock stack has become a problem. Search for Winsock2Fix, as this will reset the Winsock stack (never hurts doing this anyways)
    Deciding factor : Does this happen over WiFi too?

    have you tried to release and renew your ip address?

  • Dirk1970 May 11, 2010

    does it show that local connection is disabled?

    you could also have a bad ethernet cable.

    also try to uninstall then reinstall nic device(control panel)

It connects to local networks but not the internet

You don't say whether you are trying to connect via an ethernet cable, or via a wireless connection.
Try the following in order: Some of these may seem obvious, but it helps eliminate the more simple problems first: (general guidance, as I'm not sure which windows version you are working with. Did you upgrade from Vista to Win 7?)

Assume you have enabled the network on the laptop FN + number key or physical switch?

  • Check if you have the Ethernet and wireless drivers for this laptop first from the Toshiba support site and install them
  • In Control panel / device manager, see that the network devices for wireless and Ethernet Lan are appearing and have no warning mark next to them. If they have, you need to check what the problem is by clicking on the device shown and following the instructions given (repost your findings if you need more help)
  • See if you can connect to the internet using the ethernet lan connection cable (direct wired connection). If it does this ok, the problem lies with the wireless connection.
  • Assuming the wireless card in the laptop is present and is functioning, the next step is to check the router settings. Using the supplied CD that came with the router, or clicking on the router symbol in control panel / network and open the wireless security settings page, reset the wireless password and make a note of it. Save settings. When setting security, choose 128 bit security for more safety.
  • See if the laptop now picks up the network and when prompted enter the password you just created. If this works you are finished.
  • If it still does not work, try disabling Windows Firewall ( a common problem) and see if that then allows for connection.
  • If it STILL fails to work, try the laptop on a friends network. If it connects then, the problem is with your router. If it does not work, you have a failing wireless card in the laptop.
To confirm this, obtain a USB network dongle and test it on your laptop with your own network. You can get a replacement card off the likes off eBay and this is not difficult to fit.

My Acer Aspire One was working perfectly untill today, now it wont connect to the internet either by erthenet cable or wireless, each time i click on the browser icon it thinks about if for a few seconds...

Here are some suggestions that may help you resolve your Acer Aspire One problem.
Try to eliminate possible causes by
1. Shut down / power off all the PCs - the Aspire One and those belonging to your son and daughter.
2. Shut down / power off all game or multi-media consoles that can connect to internet via router.
3. Power off any another network connected devices (hard drives, printers, scanners, picture frames)
4. Power off your wireless router and cable/dsl modem for about five minutes.
5. Power on your cable/dsl modem.
6. After a couple of minutes, power on your wireless router.
7. Power on your Aspire One and a few minutes after desktop is loaded, shut off its wireless.
8. On the desktop's Taskbar, make sure the Wireless Network Connection icon has a red x beside it.
9. Look for the double-screen icon representing Local Area Connection in the desktop's Taskbar.
10. If not there, click start, control panel, network connections and right-click Local Area Connection.
11. Click enable on the pop-up to enable the Local Area Connection and its icon appears with red x.
12. Connect ethernet cable from one of the router's RJ-45 LAN ports to Aspire One's ethernet port.
13. The red x should disappear from the double screen icon in the Taskbar.
14. Hovering your mouse cursor over the icon should get a pop-up with the connection's status.
15. If OK, click on your IE browser icon on the desktop.
16. If nothing happens, click start button at bottom left and click on IE in start menu or program list.
17. If nothing happens, press Ctrl and Alt and Del key together to bring up Windows Task Manager
18. In WTM, click Applications tab to see if IE Task is running.
19. If not, click Processes tab to see if iexplore.exe process is running.
20. If not, check if you can start anything else such as Notepad.
21. If nothing starts, you should consider doing a recovery using Acer eRecovery Management.
22. If IE does start, click on its Tools tab then click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
23. Follow on-screen instructions to diagnose your connection problem.
24. If successful, close down IE, remove ethernet cable and restart the Acer Aspire One.
25. Disconnect the ethernet cable and turn on the Acer One's wireless with its wireless switch.
26. Big green letters "Wireless LAN Enabled" should appear momentarily at bottom of desktop
27. Followed by a pop-up balloon over the Taskbar's wireless icon announcing connection made.
28. Open IE browser again, click on its Tools tab then click on Diagnose Connection Problems.
29. Follow on-screen instructions to diagnose your connection problem.
30. If OK, the problem may be an interaction with one of the other networked devices/systems.
31. Redo this procedure but power on one of the other devices/systems before the Aspire One.
32. Redo one at a time for each of the other device/systems.
33. If the Aspire One is found to be OK with all of the devices/systems connected one at a time
34. Then the problem may be when ALL of the devices/systems are on and connected.
For example, depending how it is setup, the router's DHCP may have run out of IP addresses.
Another example is IP address conflict due to systems not flushing their IP cache on restarting.
These two examples assume the problem exists regardless either on wired or wireless connection.
If just one of the devices/systems is causing the problem, it may have been infected with a virus.

Ethernet Connection Not Working

There are many......many ways that an Ethernet network could be configured as far as Internet connectivity. However, there are a couple of layouts that are extremely common -- probably used by something like 91% of home and SMBs. I'm going to assume your using one of these more common setups but unless there's more detail that you provide (home? business? high speed cable? DSL? windows who? Linksys router? D-Link router? Netgear router? No router? Hamster running inside wheel? etc.).... um, this answer will be a tad generic. But luckily generic stuff usually works.

Although my expertise and experience is with the Vaio, these troubleshooting steps apply to any PC running late Windows XP. I'm also assuming that your method of connecting to the Internet goes something like this: Ethernet cable from your laptop connects to a switch/router (doesn't matter if its standalone or integrated into a router, as long as the connection gets to the router that is plugged into your broadband service) --- router connected to a cable/DSL modem (some DSL providers sell a combo router/modem unit... might be made by 2Wire, for example) --- modem interfaces your internal gig with the Internet... happiness occurs as long as nothing breaks.

1. Start > Connect To > Show all connections

2. Unless you renamed it, your ethernet network card that's built-in to the Vaio will be represented by the icon entitled "Local Area Connection" -- and it sounds like you already know this. I apologize in advance if I go over or under your head.

3. Left-click "Local Area Connection" and then in the left sidebar of that window (where you see Network Tasks, Other Places, yada yada...), collapse all of the categories except for Details, that way it's right there and you don't have to scroll to get to it. What does it say?

A) If it says "Disabled" then go over and right-click Local Area Connection > Enable. Or if you don't even see the "Local Area Connection" icon then your card isn't being recognized and you can just read on because I explain how to download the driver (even though that is a generic first-step solution).

B) If it says "Network Cable Unplugged" then try another cable, check connections everywhere (does the light on your router/switch light up for the ethernet port you plugged into?). If all looks good then the last generic thing you can do besides replacing hardware is go visit this little linkeroo:,24,26,66,9,70,5,72
...and plug in your model of Vaio. Look on lower left corner of display panel, DON'T use the "model number" listed on the bottom panel... or else the computer may display a very large and disturbingly lifelike image of a middle-finger!.... ok kidding there... it won't be the middle finger per say.
...............Now download the drivers for the network card/controller by clicking the + symbol next to the category and then hit the green arrow -- and choosing RUN when prompted is totally and completely acceptable, and even highly recommended.

C) If it says "Connected" and shows an IP address that begins with something other than, then you may be reaching the router and I'd check your Internet connection. Call your ISP? Check router config... Maybe feed the hamster if he's hungry so he can keep spinning that wheel? These are all valid suggestions.

4. Try this: Right-click "Local Area Connection" and select REPAIR. This will release the IP address, disable the network card, flush DNS, restart the network card, re-register DNS, and ask the DHCP server (probably the router) for a new IP address, which is basically the computer's phone number.

5. Any third part software installed for security purposes? Like Norton Security or some other firewall software? If yes, get rid of it... see what happens.

6. And step 6 would be to start drinking... or provide more detail. Obviously you got on the Internet somehow or else you wouldn't have posted the question so go use that connection and check out the very user-friendly and sophisticated Sony support site -- again, the link to Vaio support is,24,26,66,9,70,5,72

Cannot connect laptop with the eithernet cord

If you cannot connect your laptop using an Ethernet cable, make sure the laptop's wireless ethernet is disabled. To disable it in window xp, click the Start button and open the Control Panel. Double-click Network Connections. Right-click Wireless Network Connection and select Disable from the drop-down list.

04e3ee0.png If you are using a laptop with Windows Vista, click the Start Button and type Network and Sharing into the Start Search box. Select Network and Sharing Center from the Programs list. Select Manage Network Connections from the left pane of the window. The Network Connections window will open. Click on Wireless Network Connection. Select Disable this Network Device at the top of the window.

9a7c8c6.png Troubleshoot the Network
After disabling the laptop's wireless connection, be sure to restart the computer before trying to connect with the Ethernet cable again. If you still cannot connect the laptop to the network with an Ethernet cable after rebooting, check to make sure there is not a problem with the network itself. If there are others nearby connected to the same network, such as in your office, dorm or another public location, ask them whether they are currently able to connect to the network. If no one else is using the network, contact the system administrator or your Internet service provider to see if there may be an outage. This step can save you plenty of time troubleshooting if there is an outage in your area!
Troubleshoot the Ethernet Cable
If there is no problem with the network itself, the reason that you cannot connect the laptop may be the ethernet cable. Make sure that the Ethernet Cable is securely connected to both the laptop and the wall outlet. If possible, try connecting the Ethernet cable into another wall jack or port on the router, and then try using a different Ethernet cable. The Ethernet cable you are using may be damaged.

8686681.png Troubleshoot Network Settings
If the Ethernet cable does not seem to be the reason why you cannot connect to the network, check the laptop's network settings. In Windows XP, open the Control Panel and select Network Connections. Open Local Area Connection and check the status of the connection.
In Windows Vista, go to the Network and Sharing Center and select Diagnose and Repair from the left pane and wait for the results.

If the Local Area Connection is listed as Disabled, right-click it and choose Enable.
If it says that the network adapter is unplugged and you have ruled out a problem with the Ethernet cable and port, the laptop's network adapter may have failed. Try using the same Ethernet cable on another computer. If you are able to connect to the network on another computer using the same Ethernet cord, contact the laptop's manufacturer, a computer repair technician or replace the network adapter yourself.

Wireless not functioning

HI there,

Check the hardware. Most network problems stem from improper software and hardware settings, but occasionally hardware failures are responsible. If a shared Internet connection seems to be down, try to watch a cable television channel if you have a cable modem or use the phone if you have DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) to see if the entire service is down. If it is, contact your ISP to see if there is a problem in your area. Check all cable connections and consider replacing Ethernet cables if the problem seems to be confined to a particular computer or device.

Thank you & post back how things get done..
