Check your firewall setting.
check if your connection is working or not, by connecting to other pc if possible.
check if dns etc config for your internet is ok, for this you must call you ISP and check if there are no issues with you connection.
showing connecting cant mean actually connected, it wont work unless confuguration setting are good.

Hi, Restore your computer to the last restore point before it froze using system restore. This should reset the computer where everything was working properly. Hard shut downs can corrupt files and drivers. Also do a full virus scan to make sure your system is clean.

Unidentfied network is connected, no internet access, i see a chair between the internet acces and the laptop. tried to reboot everything several times, turned off firewalls, nothing helps/


That unidentified network, have you connected to that before and browsed the internet? Just because you connect to a network, doesn't mean that network is setup to allow internet access. It could be a simple fact that you need to connect to a different network.

How do i setup my internet on the samsung nc10? i am wirelessly connected but when i go into networks it says te local connection is not connected because the network cable is unplugged but i dont have a...


Local area connection is meant for wired LAN connection. you can connect the internet using a straight clable wire.
on how to make a straight cable,below is the link

http://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/ethernetcables.html

But as you have said you can connect using wireless,then in wireless adapter setting,

Assigned your IP address Plus Subnet Mask address.
Set your wireless access point IP address as your Default Gateway Address.

In Primary DNS address as provided by your Internet service provider.specify secondary address too,it available.

If DHCP server is available then you don't need to configure anything.

If you are trying to browse internet through a proxy server than Go to internet Explorer,Click "Tools", Select "Internet options ", Select Connection, Tick Proxy server and specify the IP address of your proxy server and the port.

you will be able to browse Internet now.

On my PDA MC70 it is showing WI-FI "unavailable"


This can get kind of complicated, and your wireless carrier may block this depending on the data plan. It's also different for the MC7095 (CDMA) and MC7094 (GSM/GPRS) models. You may also want to see if your device BSP release is up-to-date.

Here is some basic info for the MC7095 (Sprint):

Device was not connected to network to start.
Went to Start, Programs, Internet Sharing, tapped Connect, showed Status: Check USB connection. Internet Sharing drivers were installed on laptop computer, then device displayed Internet Sharing Status "Connected". We were able to browse the web on the laptop computer. Closed out of Internet Sharing (tap X on upper right hand corner). On device, tapped Start, Internet Explorer, attempted to browse to a webpage. Able to browse on both laptop computer and MC7095 device.

Note: Attempted to Disconnect the Internet Sharing session, unable to. The device does not appear to respond to the "Disconnect" option on bottom left of screen. When tapping "Disconnect" the option light up as if being tapped however the device itself shows no other changes and Status still displays :Connected.
***FYI*** In testing with a different MC7095 (BSP33) we experienced the same issues with not being able to "Disconnect" the Internet Sharing session.

Help mi out plzzzz(wireless problem)


what you can see on your network connections? If you can see some icon of internet connection or local network connection you can right click and then point to properties after that you can see the local area connections properties. double click the Internet protocol (TCP/IP) click it and then click obtain automatically ip address. Some wireless network, you can see the network provider which you can see on your network locations. Sometimes you can put specific ip adress of your provider. If not? you can make your own network connection, right click the internet connection and then click properties follow the instruction and go to network connection and sign up your username and password so that you can access through internet connections.
