Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
I am connected to a wireless internet user but I am not able to get on the internet. I am not sure what my next step is.
Hi, I have a link for a possible solution below... support.microsoft.com/kb/884787 You must be "Allowed" to connect thru sic"a wireless internet user" The machine ya connect to must have Internet connection sharing set up. You can use the Network Setup Wizard to help you connect up. Basically.. ya have "Peer to Peer" and an "Access Point" depending on your setup. With peer to peer ya gotta set it all up with intenet connection sharing set up to "Allow" a "Remote" WiFi PC to connect to the internet.. With an "Access Point" one simply "Finds" & connect up to the correct, SSID... (Unique network name) and the Access Point sorts out ya internet connection.

Hi, A couple of things you should check: 1. Has the "wireless internet user" enabled his Internet Sharing? If yes, how has is this user sharing it with you, through an AP/Router? 2. If he is using an AP/Router, are there any security settings enabled such as WEP, WPA, or MAC Filter? If yes, you have to get the security key and enter it into your configuration. 3. Is the DHCP Server in the AP/Router enabled? 4. If yes to #3, have you made your networking "Obtain an IP Address Automatically? 5. If no, you have to get/set the allowed IP address that you can use, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers; 6. Can you ping the AP/Router or at least the "wireless internet" user IP Address. To ping, Start, Run, type "cmd", type "ping IP add of wireless internet user and/or AP/Router; 7. In your browser, enable Auto detect proxy settings for this connection; Pls post back with: a. How do you connect, a wifi card/USB or built-in? b. What AP/Router are you connecting to? c. What browser are you using, IE, Mozilla, Opera? Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
