Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My V3-772G-9643 laptop can only establish "limited" internet access with my wireless network. Other devices are able to connect to the internet without a problem. I have attempted to diagnose the problem, but the only message I get when I troubleshoot is ""Wi-Fi" doesn't have a valid IP configuration." I do not know how to address this problem, and I would appreciate some feedback regarding a simple fix for the issue. (Please keep in mind that I am not very computer literate).

Suspect you have a router that assigns ip address ?
or does the wi fi access point assign ip addresses ?
This is known in techo speak as a DHCP server that manages the setting up of the ip addresses automatically.
in simple terms you go into the ip address settings of the mystery operating system which from your laptops model number should be windows 8 64 bit version.
this you tube video explains how to go into the ip addresses
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iF6V0orA0Cg
if the ip address is set up manually
go to a computer that does work and get the ip address , sub net mask and default gateway ip address and set up on your laptop that has ip not working an ip address that is not used by the other computers it cannot clash with another computer.

SOURCE: cannot connect to open wireless network Invalid IP Address

Either the network requires you to manually configure your ip settings(unusual but not unheard of) or your wireless adapter is not set to get settings from DHCP. Check to verify that your wireless adapter is set for DHCP and if this is correct then you'll need to contact the administrator for the wireless AP and haver them check their settings.

Cisco access point


Hi,
How to configure wireless access point using a laptop
Wireless technology makes connecting to the Internet possible from anywhere within the range of the network. Unfortunately, not all Internet-capable devices have wireless technology, and many still require an Ethernet port connection. If you have a laptop with a wireless card and an Internet connection, you can make the laptop a wireless access point and share that connection with other devices, whether your laptop runs a Windows or OSX operating system. Windows computers allow other devices to access the wireless network via a physical connection to the laptop, while OSX computers allow AirPort equipped devices to connect as well, creating a second wireless bubble for the network.

Instruction:
WINDOWS
1 Turn on the laptop and the device with which you will share the connection. Ensure the laptop's wireless card is turned on and you have an Internet connection.

2 Connect an Ethernet cord to the port on the laptop, and the other end to the receiving device. You need to make the connection first, or you will not be able to access the sharing options for the connection.

3 Open the list of network connections on the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista, access this list by typing "Network Connections" into the Start menu search bar and pressing "Enter." In Windows XP, click on "Network Connections" in the Network and Sharing Center section of the Control Panel.

4 Right click on the wireless connection and select "Properties," then navigate to the Sharing tab. This tab will not appear unless both devices are connected.

5 Check the box marked "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection." Click "OK" to save the changes.
OSX
1 Click on the Apple menu and select "System Preferences." Click the "Sharing" option, then choose "Internet Sharing."

2 Select the Airport and wireless network in the "Share your connection from:" drop-down menu.

3
Select an output format for the connection in the "To computers using:" drop-down menu. Choose "Ethernet" for a physical connection or "AirPort" for wireless broadcasting.

4
Turn on the device you wish to receive the connection. Connect the devices with an Ethernet cable, or turn on the receiving device's AirPort card and connect wirelessly.

How to use cwa-854 other than bridge mode?I would like to have an internet access point obtained with user name and pasword where i can conetct more than one comp (ip obtained automatically)?


Two aspects have to be considered to establish a network with brideable functions

1. The computer infrustrure have to be built, for example the computers have to be connected to each other by physcal cables to achieve the first steps the the second steps requiring wireless functionality.

2.The wireless devices like modems transfer signals between the two device to communicate otherwise would have communicated by wire connectivty of cables. The wireless device creates a bridge between the two devices also called an access point located on the computer networking area ( open my computer, click system settings and select networking functionality for any alteration purposes)

3.Once each device in the connection is ready functioning, the access point becomes visible message that could be manipulted by the computer administrator.

4. Clicking on the system networking settings will allow customisable features explanable

a. The network area would have the option of creating passwords to every device for reasons of that each device on the network is a separate entity only possible to achieve connectivey by another device providing wireless capability.

b. manipulate the wireless features that would only be displayed after each gadget on the infrastructure has been phically connected with wires amongs one another and to power supply in which instance to be powered on.

c. the modem once powered on should recognise an available computer physical establishment because wireless chips are embeded in every entity of the setup.

d. The computer display of message about wireless signal recognistion is then manipulated to suit the administrators specifications explanable.

1. A user name and password are established for reasons of contolling access to the connection of several devices

2. The device could function without passwords and username only becomes available to every demander making possible connectivty so several untilities and infructure.

Important notes

1. Your computer set up of networks are a network that when capable of communicating elswhere with additional networks insfrustures together is an internet.
2. Rememer to setup your newkwork properly or esle access could not be made into another network and vise versa.

3. If you set up any passwords and user names in the process of establishing a network,, other persons requiring connectivety woudld requrre what is called Codes in computer temnology to acess the network. whenever the passwors are lost would compromise your acess to the link of wireless signals as well.

What shall i do to have an access to internet?


Depending on where you are, you should normally need to subscribe with an internet provider. They will provide you with a modem/router for you to connect to your computer. Connection to your computer is normally directly to the router via a network cable or via a wireless network if this is available.

Some countries or establishments (cafe, libraries, etc.) offer free internet connections so if you do not need to connect from home and are an infrequent user, this option should suffice. The Sony Vaio should be capable to connect to any of the options above.

How to connect acer as5920 to internet


You can connect to the Internet using a cable or DSL modem and connect it to your computer using a network cable or a USB cable.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

If you want to connect to the Internet using a wireless connection then read this.
What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Can't connect to the internet wirelessly


Well, to avoid confusion, I'd start by doing a factory reset. Insert the straightened end of a paperclip into the reset hole and power up the device to do this. From there, the device should begin broadcasting the default wireless network with the name (SSID) of "Motorola." The DHCP server should also be enabled and if your computer is configured to receive an automatically assigned IP address your wireless network interface should pick up an IP. The security for the "Motorola" network is disabled by default.

Basic troubleshooting from there would be to try to see if you can connect your wireless computer to another wireless network that is know to be working well. Either buy and return another wireless access point or router from a retailer or head to a Starbucks or other establishment that offers free wireless. If the wireless computer is hooking up nicely with the secondary wireless network, you can refocus on the SBG900 as the likely source of the problem.

If after attempting the aforementioned procedures you find that the wireless computer continues to fail to connect to the SBG900 you might have to consider that you have a faulty device. At that point I would consider consulting the manufacturer's documentation.
