Connection show as good but internet wont come up

Could be a multitude of things, I would check your proxies first.
Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.

You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.

One other possability: When you say you can connect to the LAN or wireless connection fine, I must assume you are using a router with wireless capabilities.

Just becuase you can establish a connection to your router, does not mean that router has a gateway to the internet. The router is simply used to create a network for file, printer, and internet sharing. It is totally possible to use the router strictly for networking purposes and not for internet sharing.

That being said, I would ensure the cable/dsl modem is securely connected to the router. Also try power cycling both devices. Check the lights on the modem, typically they give a status. Mine has a POWER, ETHERNET, DSL, INTERNET, and ACTIVITY light. Green typically means status is functional, red means it is not.

When my ISP is down, the DSL light will be flashing red. It is time to call your ISPs tech support if that is the case. Check all your connections to be secure and power cycle everything first, your ISP will ask you to do this as soon as you call them, and it does resolve alot of problems quickly.

There is always the possibility of them having an outage.

General rule is always check the physical layer first, which is cabling and hardware. Make sure it's on and plugged in. Then try rebooting it all.

Hope this helps.

My modems LAN light is blinking and I can't get Internet, I've tried unplugging it, but the problem still exists, please help

There will be 4 lights...


Power light indicates power supply is good...
Ethernet light indicates connection between modem and computer is good...
DSL light indicates connection between modem and telphone line is good... Also DSL light should be steady and it should not flash...
If it flashes then it says there is a lot of noise in telephone line...
Internet light says whether the internet status is connected or not...Internet light can flash depending upon the internet activity...

I have a Linksys WRT54G2 Router, It Has Worked Fine For About A Year, And Just Suddenly It Has Problems, The WLaN Light Isn't On At All, The Power Light Is Just Blinking At A Steady Rate. I Can't Access...

Please make sure that Power, Internet and Wireless Light (or LAN light if trying to connect with Ethernet cable) is there on router if you are trying to connect it wireless .
And if only Power light is there only.Please try to power cycle the router ( turn off the router from power supply wait for a minute, plug the power supply back) and then again check the light status.
Even after this if same light status is there please try to reset the router ( there will be small pinhole button on the back side of router) just press it for 15 seconds and then release it.Wait for 2 mins and check the light status again.
It will fix your problem.

Please share the results.

WLAN orange light blinking

Wi-Fi base station: Understanding and resolving a blinking amber status light Your Wi-Fi base station status light blinks amber.
Here are some of the more common reasons that the status light may blink amber:
  • The Wi-Fi base station has not yet been configured because it is new.
  • The Wi-Fi base station has been reset.
  • A new firmware update is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
  • No IP address is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
  • A Wi-Fi base station in Extended Mode is out-of-network Wi-Fi range of a primary Wi-Fi base station.
  • The WAN Ethernet cable is unplugged from the Wi-Fi base station.
  • The Wi-Fi base station lacks a path to the Internet (or local router).
  • Internet access may be temporarily unavailable from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  • Your AirPort Time Capsule has detected that the internal hard drive has reported a SMART error, and is failing (This requires firmware 7.5.2, and AirPort Utility 5.5.2).
A persistent, blinking, amber status light indicates that your Wi-Fi base station may require your attention.
How to resolve a blinking amber status light alert
Launch AirPort Utility to determine why your Wi-Fi base station status light is blinking amber.
Apple recommends that you use AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Mac, AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Windows, or a newer version of AirPort Utility if one is available.
  1. AirPort Utility 5.2 or later opens automatically if your Wi-Fi base station requires your attention. You may also choose to launch AirPort Utility at any time.
    Do not use any version of AirPort Utility earlier than 5.0.
    In Mac OS X, AirPort Utility is located in the Applications > Utilities folder.
    In Microsoft Windows, AirPort Utility can be located by clicking Start > All Programs > AirPort.
    Note: You may also locate and download the latest Wi-Fi base station firmware and software by clicking here.
  2. In the AirPort Utility window, locate your Wi-Fi base station and double-click on it to open the Summary window. Note: If you have more than one Wi-Fi base station, double-click on the icon for the Wi-Fi base station that has the amber circle next to it.
  3. When the Summary window appears, double-click the amber circle to the right of Wi-Fi base station Status to open the Status window.
  4. The Status window lists any conditions that require your attention. Respond to each item until there are no more items listed.
    : You must reset the Wi-Fi base station using the reset switch to re-enable checking for the conditions you ignored.

  5. Eliminating the blinking, amber status light may require making changes to a specific setting, or putting a checkmark in the "Ignore" checkbox beside any option you don't wish to change. A checkmark simply tells the AirPort that you are aware of the issue and you have chosen to ignore it. For example, you may wish to leave your AirPort open without a password so that anyone can join your wireless network.
  6. Click Update to apply your changes (the Wi-Fi base station will restart).
  7. After the Wi-Fi base station has restarted, the status light should be green and not blinking. If the status light stays amber in color and blinks after the Wi-Fi base station restarts, you may repeat the steps above.

Hi , my d- link wireless router just stopped working yesterday. I can't seem to get it to connect to the internet and none of the laptops are getting wireless internet. There are 2 lights that are blinking...

Verify the connections are correct, The WAN port should be connected to the Cable/DSL modem. Then do a hard reset (hold in the reset button for 30 secs). If this doesn't work, try another router to isolate the problem.

D-Link Airplus di-524 wireless problem


The status light is blinking in all dlink models, so that is normal.

The wireless radio issues have 3 possible solutions.

1. This model has a antenna that screws in the bnc socket behind it see if it's well screwed, or substitute it by another if 2 and 3 don't fix it.

2. On the advaced settings of the wireless configuration you have the ratio of radio broadcast from 25% to 100% check to see if it's on 100%, change channel to 11 if neer and 6 if far, make sure you have SSID broadcast enabled.

3. This models allow you to restart the AP unit and the router unit idependently, so it's always good pratice to restart your AP in the tools and system comands menu.

Hope that helps.

Router not working, help please!

You may may need to configure your D-Link to use your type of internet! Try following the Quick Install Guide which can be found here: The WLAN light doesn't come on probably because you have the wireless disabled, which can be re-enabled once in the configuration for the wireless(in the document mentioned above) If you are having any difficulty following the guide or have folloed the guid and still can't connect, please get back to me regards, babb
