Hardwired to modem or router? Router = check connection to router (had a router die on me last fall - not AC supply) IP should be 192.168.1.xx or 192.168.2.xx (is standard) Reset Router = reset hole on back - hold for 10 sec Modem= same directions as router (most modems work like single port routers) (do reset of cable modem, I've had that prob too) Using PPOE connection = check log on info Took most of my home network apart to find it was the modem causing the problem - should've started there.
HI! all your computer is connected except for one, you are connected to to the local network but cant get an internet connection, I dont see any problem with your wireless connection bcoz you are connected to the lan, check the security settings of your browser on your windows vista, go to internet option and security, lower it down to medium security, so that you can access the internet or try using other browser like firefox or google chrome.. check your firewall settings as well on your windows vista..
Go to the router configuration and change the options so you could use both of them, there is an option says only one type of connection or both of them, change it to both, and everything will be fine.
Are you on a wireless connection or a wired connection? If you are on wireless, try changing the channel on your wireless router. You may be getting interference from another source/network.
If its a wired connection they try right clicking the connection and choosing "repair." This will correct several basic network problems. If that doesn't fix it, post back and further troubleshooting will be required.
One question, is... do you need to enter a KEY or is this an open network?
I have found that with a new computer, you need to do the following to connect.
If this is an open network, then leave your router running, and just do a cold boot with your computer.
IE: Shut down, count to 10, and then re-start.
You may also need to connect (by network cable) to your router and make sure the wireless is turned on.
Most new rountes start with the wireless disabled.
Hi,I am going crazy! Just moved house and took my Netgear Wireless router with me.

Using Vista Home Premium. Help appreciated!
