Coby Kyros MD1042 will not connect to Internet


I hate to be rude but WEP was broken several years ago. Use WPA or WPA2 or (best of all) a wired connection.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for your router and the latest drivers for your network card on the PC/laptop or console.

Have a Belkin N150 router. Status constantly says acquiring network address. If you go to the support part it says invalid ip address.


Make sure your wireless card is set to acquire the IP address automatically. You can do this by going into:
  1. Go to "Start Menu >> Control Panel >> Network Connections"
  2. Right-Click on "Wireless Network Connection"
  3. Click on "Properties"
  4. Double-Click "Internet Protocol" which you should be able to see in the small list in the box
  5. Now you will be able to see an option to "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically". make sure that both of these options are selected.
If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, the flow is the same, but certain options are labeled differently:
  1. Go to "Start Menu >> Control Panel >> Network and Sharing Center"
  2. Click on "Manage Network Connections", which is located on the left hand side of the window.
  3. Right-Click on "Wireless Network Connection"
  4. Click on "Properties"
  5. Double-Click "Internet Protocol Version 4" which you should be able to see in the small list in the box
  6. Now you will be able to see an option to "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically". make sure that both of these options are selected.
  7. Repeat 'STEP 4 and 5', but this time select "Internet Protocol Version 6".
you can check the IP address of the connection by checking ipconfig:
  1. Click on "Start >> Run" or "Start >> Start Search bar"
  2. type in "cmd" and then press "Enter"
  3. In the black box that appears on screen, type in "ipconfig" and hit "Enter"
  4. This will give you a long list of information about your connection. There should be a small heading called "Wireless LAN Adapter Wireless Network Connection" or "Ethernet Adapter Wireless Network Connection".
  5. This will have an "IP Address" or and "IPv4 Address". If the IP Address starts with 192.168., then it means it should be functioning properly. If it gives you a 169.254. address, it means the laptop is likely faulty.
Hope this helps

Trouble connecting to wireless network


Hello

You probably have a virus. To check for sure goto Start, Run and type cmd. Once the DOS screen pops up type ipconfig /all. If this shows data in all the lines (not zero's) then type ping Sony.com on the next line. If that comes back saying that Reply and then an address, this means that your actual internet is working fine and that your browser is infected or corrupted. If possible download the virus cleaner from www.avgfree.com and from www.download.com download malware bytes. You can download these at your local libray. Run these to clean your machine and then your browser should be fine. Also, get superantispyware from www.superantispyware.com.

Good Luck

Acquiring ip address


you may need to set a key on your router and PC (recommended for security anyway). Access your router with your internet browser (default is often 192.168.0.1 - listed in your manual) and get the long default key. Put this key into your wireless card set up and reboot.
