Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Internet connection works on one laptop but not the other

Yesterday my friend and I were watching an episode of a tv show online on his laptop, then suddenly the internet went out, i restarted both the modem and router many times but nothing worked.

he always uses my internet connection via his wireless card and has never had a problem until yesterday.

i didnt bother checking my laptop if the connection worked (i use a netgear wireless adapter), so i just left it alone and went to bed.

this morning i checked my internet connection ( i use a netgear wireless adapter) and the connection was the same as his laptop. its connected but cant go to sites.

so i disabled my wireless adapter and actually tried to connect directly from the modem, and it worked. then i unplugged the ethernet cable and enabled my wireless adapter again, and to my surprise, my internet connection was fixed! so i tried the same method with my friends laptop, but sadly it did not work.

i then tried to diagnose the problem and it said something about ''policy provider:windows firewall filter name: query user''

i yahooed this and found other people asking about the same problem, but none were ever resolved. i've tried using openDNS but that didnt work either.

i tried pinging the IP address and it did reply 4 times, then i pinged yahoo and it said ''ping request could not find host yahoo.com'' so now i'm out of ideas

sorry for the entry being so long...i just wanted to be very detailed so it would be easier for someone to help me....thanks

EDIT: i disabled his antivirus (AVG) also but did not fix the problem

First try forcing the DNS Address by channging the option to use the following DNS address in TCP/IP properties. primary DNS is 4.2.2.1 and the secondary DNS is 4.2.2.2 then try to connect. This should work if it doesnt follow the steps 2.
If it is Vista, then Vista has two FW administration user interface screens. One looks as the XP admin UI screen, and the other one is different and is the Advanced FW UI.
> Go to the Adv FW UI which is off of Control Panel. The icon looks like a brick wall.
> It will show you all the FW rules. So look for the filter name, and you can right-click the line and do what you need to do.Let me know whether this works?

How can I connect acer aspire 5733z 4816 to HD tv to view internet content on my t.v.? example netflix or pandora


If you have a connection to the Internet, you can watch episodes of your favorite TV shows directly on your computer, using only a web browser. Many websites offer libraries of television shows and movies to watch for free with limited advertisements. Using your laptop can allow you to connect and watch TV from just about anywhere, as long as there is an Internet connection.

Visit a popular TV show streaming website. Use credible resources when watching and streaming media online to protect your personal information. Some popular television networks now allow the viewing of their shows online for free, in case you missed an old episode or in case you're on the go. Look through genres and categories that interest you and use the website's search bar if they have one available. Search for the TV show you are looking to watch. Choose and select the show you want to watch and click on it to see if there are any further instructions required regarding using the website. Watch the TV show on your laptop by pressing "Play" on the video player. If it is not working, you may need additional plugins to run your video and sound software. http://download.cnet.com/k-lite-codec-pack/3000-13632_4-64246.html Get a collection of VFW or ACM codecs, Directshow filters for your media files http://download.cnet.com/microsoft-directx-redistributable-june/3000-2121_4-10176490.html Microsoft DirectX Redistributable

Im trying to watch full episodes on cbs.com and they keep stuttering or skipping


Could be your internet connection. A slow internet connection can cause this. Test your internet connection at www.speedtest.org Try starting the video and then pause it...see if it continues to load on the progress bar. This will allow the show to buffer. Could be the CBS server also. Try watching the shows on a lower resoloution. Check and make sure your motherboard and video card drivers are up to date. Make sure a virus scanner is not running when you are trying to watch a show...that will slow down your computer.
