If you go to ("start/run and type CMD" if XP) or (start / -in "start search here" type CMD , if it is a vista) and you should see a black window, in it, type --> ipconfig
and press enter, that should show you an IP address, if it is 169.xxx.xxx.xxx that means you network card is either bad or not talking to you router of DSL modem , if it is connected to router, bypass the router and connect it directly to modem (cable modem or DSL) and restart the computer, if still does it (meaning 169 still), that means the cord could be bad, (swap it) or that means you network card is BLOCKED from the outside world by a Firewall. diable the firewall, (disable windows firewall first, restart pc, if still, that means you might have an another firewall (some firewalls if they expire, they do a total lock down, meaning, they will not allow you to connect to the outside world, in some cases you might need to uninstall the firewall totally.)

worst case senario , you might need to replace you network card *go to walmart, and get one, they are around the $10 or $12. and replace it. (hoping that you have either XP or vista) if you have an earlier one, do not even bother with it.

Tip

Internet Connection Basics


Modern high-speed internet connections are made using DSL or cable modems. In general, most DSL modems also act as routers, but not too many cable modems act like a router.

Some internet connection basics: Every device connected to the internet has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. The address consists of 4 groups of up to 3 numbers each. They would look like this: 123.111.36.145 (0 is the smallest number and 255 is the largest you will see). When you connect to the internet, you are assigned an IP address by your ISP (Internet Service Provider). When you hook up your computer
to the modem, the signal is passed through the device to your computer and the device's IP address becomes your address. This is not secure, as the "bad guys" could type your IP address into their machine and theoretically see your computer and access all your data.

Connecting with your modem: Modems come with a CD nowadays. Running the setup CD makes connecting quite easy. With a DSL modem, you normally have to provide a username and password to log on. Cable modems generally rely on the cable connection to your house to recognize who you are and when you run the setup CD, you are automatically connected.

The router: The purpose of this device is twofold--one is to take the signal you get from your ISP and send it to a number of computers in your home network. The second purpose is to take the IP address and send it to a different address on each computer. This acts as a "firewall" in that the IP address assigned to your computer is no longer the address of the computer. Those bad guys trying to hack into your system will have a much more difficult time.

Types of routers: There are wired routers capable only of hooking up computers with ethernet cable within a network. There are wireless routers--normally these have 4 wired ports and a set of antennas. These function will in a mixed environment of wired and wireless computers. Most people these days are using wireless routers.

In my next tip, I'll describe how you go about hooking up your new router to an existing internet connection.

My computer is saying connected to router but no internet and my cable light on the router is not lit. (yes the cable is active on my tv) Any suggestions on the problem and a solution


if its the first time you connected the router ...you have to make the wlan connection ..and clone the Mac address on the router to fit the old mac that u had on computer card..
this in case ia have a static ip address and you need to make the internet connection with the provider... after that select from your pc network setting to obtain an ip address automatically ...and you put the sub-net mask at 255 255 255 0 and the default gateway as the ip address of the router ...
do not forget the router is now your connection with the provider so there is where you set the provider 's settings ...
if you have a modem too just select at the wlan in the router .to obtain an auto ip ...and in the computer too ..you may also clone the mac adress cause the provider may have it ..and block the acces cause didnt recognize the new one (router's Mac)

We have a main pc attached to our broadband via ethernet and 1 other laptop which is also attached to the the internet but wirelss, my son has purchased an acer aspire 7730/7330 series laptop , how do we...


I think you need to specify the gateway address in your new laptop. For that you have to know the gateway address ( i,e. the IP address of your boardband router/ adsl modem.).

First, go to your old laptop, right click on My Network Places, Right click on the wireless lan connection and select properties. Click on Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click properties.
Take a note of the Default gateway.
Now come to your new laptop, use the procedure mentioned above to open the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) Properties box. Type in the Default gateway address which you have noted earlier. Click ok twice. Now see if you can access the internet. If you can't then let me know the IP address configuration of both your old and new laptops.
