Re: status is connected, but can't access...

This problem can happen either when your ISP is having a server problem and changes their WAN IP address to alter your speed, or the speed that they are syncing your line at is too fast for it to handle and therefore will keep dropping the ADSL signal until the line itself balances the speed out over a 24 hour period, the same can apply with cable.

Router troubleshooting:
It is a good idea to disconnect the power to your router for at least 30 seconds every few weeks. You should also do this to any hubs/switches between your computers and the router. Logon to router and try to set the MTU to 1492. Make sure only have one router between you and the Internet. Many ISP's refer to bridges and routers as modems so it is hard to tell. If your router connects to "modem" to access the Internet try connecting your computer directly to the "modem". If that works better then you have multiple routers "Natting". (Google: double nat) Finally, try a different router.
Computer troubleshooting:
Scan your computer for problems using Install all available "messenger" updates and fixes. If you are referring to Windows Messenger it has been replaced with Windows Live Messenger which is a free download. (Google: Windows Live Messenger)

I recommend that you start with the easiest recommendation to follow and, if necessary, continue to the next easiest. Don't try to do everything at once.

No, you have a bad internet connection.

Sort that out first, try not to use wireless connection until you have established a good fixed cable connection.

Then test out the wireless connection.

Describe your cannot connect my cga5722 wireless

well you need to reset your router wireless config, your isp dont do this, you need to config yourself, but i give some help. try these manual steps:
4.1 Log on the webpages
Open your Internet Browser
Enter in the address field
Click on GO
• The following webpage will be displayed
The only default language is English.
To access the required webpage, click on the corresponding tab on
the left side of the page.
Webpages’ menu structure
The table below describes the menu tree of the webpages.
4.3 ADSL/Internet Settings webpages
4.3.1 ADSL status
Click on "ADSL Status" which is located on the left side of the screen.
SET UP WIZARD Getting started
Wireless settings
ADSL settings
The ADSL Wireless Base Station also operates as a wireless access
point, allowing wireless computers to communicate with each other. To
configure this function, you need to enable the wireless function, define
the radio channel, the domain identifier, and the security options.
Check Enable and click "SAVE SETTINGS".
You must specify a common radio channel and SSID (Service Set ID) to
be used by the ADSL Wireless Base Station and all of its wireless clients.
Make sure you configure all of its clients to the same values.
Access Control allows users to define the outgoing traffic permitted or
not-permitted through the WAN interface. The default is to permit all
outgoing traffic.
If the signal strength of a single wireless base station is not sufficient due
to a large coverage area or attenuation due to walls, with WDS the
range of a wireless base station can be extended.
All base stations in a Wireless Distribution System must be configured
with the same radio channel, and encryption type (WEP/WPA) if that is

Connected but cannot access internet

Not able to connect to internet

1. try to check the status of the connection:
make sure it is connected and the status does not say either of the ff:
a. local only
b. limited or no connectivity
c. limited access only

2. try to change the network name [ssid] and the network key [wep or wpa passphrase]
you can change this by accessing the ipaddress of the router or its user interface

3.try to reconnect to the new network name
and make sure the status says connected.

this is not a browser issue . it is with the connection set up.
