Stopped connecting to the internet

Doesn't allow intetrnet connection anymore. pinging shows everything connected. When removed from the circuit and computer hooked directly to modem, internet connection is achieved. I have power cycled and reset the router. I have also replaced cable wire. All led's show correctly. I can reach the admin setup menu. Any suggestions for fixing this problem would be appreciated.

Re: Stopped connecting to the internet

What kind of connection do you have? (Cable, DSL, etc.) Post an ipconfig /all result (Run, cmd, ipconfig /all) Delete your current connection and re-create it.

Uplink internet (PPPoE) will not be accessible after power cut

You are using the PPPOE connection. when you set up the router for the PPPOE connection, Do you see Internet IP address on the status page of the router.
If you have the internet IP address on the status page of the router then that is a very good thing. make sure that it shows the Internet connection type pppoe on the status page also.
your computer are communicating with each other they have the IP address that is a good thing also.
Now you can check the internet connection.
open the command prompt ( START ==> RUN == type cmd and click OK) In the command prompt try to ping the router IP address.
Suppose your router IP address is then in the command prompt type " ping " and hit ENTER on your key board.
You will get replies from the same IP address that is
that means the connection between the computer and the router is working properly.
Now type in the command " ping " and hit enter.
If you get the 4 replies from that means you computer is communicating with the DNS servers. If you get the reply form different number or if you do not get replies that means the router is not set up properly or user name and password for the pppoe might not be proper.
Now you got 4 replies from
Then type the command " ping" and hit enter.
Now check if you get replies from ( there might be replies from the number 66.x.x.x. or 207.x.x.x).
If you get the replies then everything is working properly. the issue might be with the firewall or internet browser.
Now if you don't get replies from but getting replies from that means you will need to assign static DNS numbers on the computer.
In preferred DNS =
in alternate DNS =
that will resolve the issue.

I have a D link router DIR 100 and since i have installed Service Pack 3 in my laptop, I am unable to browse internet. It shows wireless connection as connected but I am not able to browse anything....

Well te first thing you need to make sure that if you have the connectivity

To check this: Go to command prompt and than type ipconfig and see you get the right ip address or no if yes than

Try to ping website like in the command prompt type ping

if you are able to ping the websites that means you are connected to the internet and it's just a browser issue for that the best solution would be System restore which will remove the service pack 3 from the system and can fix the issue.
if you are not connected the the interenet than you ca try resetin your router iff need any clarification tha let me know.

I am assuming you understand about reseting router, ipconfig and all that.

Laptops stopped connecting wireless

how about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
Good luck!

My linksys wrt54GC stops working when connect internet cable

There might be a reason that the default gateway of your router and the internet are same.So first connect your router to any one of the computer and open the router page by typing (username should be left blank and password-admin).Then on the basic setup page change the Local IP address to,scroll down and click save settings.Now power off your router and connect internet cable to internet port of the router.Switch on the power of router and now try to go online. If you are unable to go online then connect your computer directly to the modem and download the new firmware from and connect your computer then to the router,upgrade the firmware of the router and try to go online by connecting internet cable.

Internet wont connect

Try leaving both modem and router off for 10 minutes. Turn them both back on and leave them alone for 15 minutes, does it work now? If not, make not of all of your custom settings (if any), try resetting the router back to factory defaults, restore any custom settings and try again. I had the same problem with a linksys and it worked after factory reset.
