Re: no internet connection

Ok, so if you're getting an IP Conflict, you have 2 devices trying to use the same address. It sounds like you configured a static IP address in at least one of those devices... your PC, router, or the PSP. In order to do gaming, I believe you have to set up a hole in your firewall to allow that connection... so I would suggest that you ensure that the you are using static IP addresses on all of the devices within your LAN (NOT the WAN port on the router). Set the router to, the PC to, and the PSP to that way if you add more PC's they won't interfere with the PSP accidentally. Then setup your router to allow the game port to be open for the PSP at

How do i fix my mac address and ip address in my mini laptop 9 inch slimbook. It says mac and ip is unavailable

You cannot change your MAC address, literally it's like your network adapter's finger print. Only way to change it would to be to get a new wireless adapter.

Now, if you have a windows laptop, then here is a simple way to troubleshoot what it may be.
Check to see if your Network Adapter is functional
Now what may happen, is a glitch in your network card, outdated drivers (or incorrect drivers), or an unseated Network Adapter (Most network adapters in laptops are not built into the motherboard, which means they can become unseated, however they are usually screwed into place, so this is unlikely), lastly the network adapter may just be bad.
  1. Press the windows key & X at the same time
  2. Select Command Prompt
  3. Type in "Ping" and press enter.
  4. This will ping your own network card, and will verify functionality. If you do not receive any packets, then you should check your drivers first.
  5. IF you do not have an error, and still cannot connect to the internet, then you may have an APIPA or connection issue.
Check for an APIPA
An APIPA is an IP address that is given to your computer when your computer cannot connect to the DHCP (DHCP is what assigns IP addresses automatically in a router or access point). You cannot connect to the internet with an APIPA address.
How to see if you have an APIPA
  1. Press the Windows key & X on your keyboard simultaneously
  2. Select Command Prompt
  3. Type in "IPConfig" without quotations and press enter
  4. To the right of IPv4, you will see a sequence of 4 numbers, this is what's known as an IP address (It looks like
  5. If your IP adress reads anything from to, then you have an APIPA.
How to fix an APIPA
  1. Press the windows key & X again
  2. Go to Network Connections
  3. Right Click on your internet Adapter
  4. Click "Properties"
  5. Scroll down until you see "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
  6. Click on it to highlight it blue
  7. Below it, you'll see three options, "Install... - Uninstall - Properties"
  8. Click on Properties
  9. In this window, make sure "Obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.
  10. Click "Ok"
  11. Click "Close"
Release & Renew
After you tell your computer to obtain an IP address automatically, you'll need to release your IP address and renew it, this will tell your computer to forgot your current IP address, and gain a new one.
  1. Press the windows key & X again
  2. Click on command prompt
  3. Type "IPConfig /release", again, without quotations and hit enter
  4. Wait until your can input another command
  5. Type "IPConfig /renew" and hit enter
  6. Finally, type "IPConfig" once more, you should no longer have an APIPA. (If by chance you still do, you may need to update your network adapter drivers or, by chance, your network card may have become unseated or loose within the desktop or laptop)
Test internet Connection
If you are positive that your router and modem is properly setup and connected to the internet, then continue on to our last test. This test will tell your computer to send 4 small packets of data to several devices. We will first test connection to your router, then we will try Google.
  1. Go to command prompt
  2. Type "IPConfig" without quotations and hit enter.
  3. Make note of the Default Gateway address
  4. Type "Ping" then hit space, and enter your Default Gateway (This will test your connection to your router)
  5. If you don't receive any pings in return, try checking your settings. Also, try checking to see if your connected to your router or that your router is on.
  6. If you receive all of your pings back, then continue to the next step.
  7. Type in "Ping" without quotes and hit enter.
  8. If you receive all packets, your connected to the internet!

I want to connect internet on my psp through a wireless access point but iam constantly recieving dns errors , what settings should be made on my psp and my access point? to solve the problem???

  1. Connect your router
  2. Open a brower window on your computer, preferably Internet explorer.
  3. Enter the IP address of the router (Ex:
  4. Upon entering the IP address of the router in the browser it should direct you to your router box. If this does not happen then most likely your router box has been configured to a different IP address. To get this IP number run the set-up program.
  5. Now in the routher settings navigate within your router's settings dialog and locate "Wirless Settings"
  6. Check if you are assigned a SSID
  7. Check your region
  8. You should be on Channel 11. Sometimes the channel could different, in such situations make sure you are on the same channel.
  9. Check if "Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID)" is enabled
  10. Check if "Enable Wireless access point" is enabled
  11. Set authentication as "Open system". You will find this option under "Security Encryption (WEP)"
  12. Set strength of encryption as "Disabled"
  13. Now click on "Wireless Card Access List". You may need to provide your password again.
  14. Make sure "Turn on Access control" option is turned off "Disabled"
  15. You should now see your PSP listed. No, you dont see then on your psp, go to "system settings" and then to "system information". You will see MAC address, now make a note of this MAC address.
  16. Now in "Wireless Card Access List" select "Add". If you are not able to do this then enter the PSP's MAC address and click "Finish/Apply" when done.
  17. In WAN settings, verify that "Connect Automatically as required" is enabled
  18. In "LAN TCP/IP Settings" make note of all of the information included. You may need this later. You may not, but it's a good idea to take note of it now.
  19. Under "Router Status" make note of all the relevant information included here as well. You may or may not need it.

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!

When the TCP/IP is set to dynamic or "Obtain Automatically", the default gateway is supposed to blank. The default gateway address of your network is actually the router's IP address.

What is the IP address that you get when you performed step 3?

Cannot connect second computer to my networn

I have listed several things here that you can use to find the problem. Sorry this is so problems can be very tedious to find.

First check your version of Windows:
Double click on "My Computer", then click on "View System Information" to make sure you have at least Service Pack 1...or better yet....Service Pack 2.

Next check your Windows XP network settings:
Click on Start....Control Panel....Network Connections...Local Area Connection...Properties(button). Scroll down the list to find Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click on it to highlight it. Now click the properties button below the list. You should now be able to click the small buttons to select both of the "Obtain....automatically" choices for IP address and DNS server. Click on "OK" to close each of the windows.

Now you can test your computer to see if it is "talking" to the router: Click on Start...Run...and type "cmd" in the small box and click "OK". This will open a black command window where you tell the computer what to do. Type the command "ipconfig" and press return (enter). This will list your ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. Make a note of the default gateway address so you can use it for the next test. If the IP address begins with 192.168...then your computer is probably communicating with the router okay. If your IP address is blank or starts with 169...then your network connection to the router may NOT be working.

The final test!!! Use the default gateway address from the last step to do a "ping" test. In the black command window...type "ping" followed by the default gateway address. For example: IF the default gateway happens to be type the ping command this way: ping

If the result is a list of replies from the gateway address...great!! Your network connection is working. If the ping command results in a list of "request timed out", or something else, then your network connection needs more help.

The ultimate test is to try using the Internet with your browser.
If this works, next try typing your gateway address into the brower address bar. It should connect you to the router setup page.(?)

Let me know the results of each of these tests, and I'll be happy to assist you further, if needed.
