Checking Device Status on the Device Manager

For Windows 2000 or XP:

1. Click on Start, go to Settings and then Control Panel.
2. Click on System, go to Hardware and then Device Manager.
3. Click the (+) sign on Network Adapters and select the adapter.
4. Double click on it and read the Device Status.

If your network device is not listed, then you have to enable this on CMOS/BIOS setup of your pc

If its already enabled but still not working. I suggest you get a LAN adapter and set it up to your pc .

Try ping 127.0.0.1 is the standard IP address used for a loopback network connection.
If the is not giving you any result then the issue is with the nic card.
Else it is configuration issue call you isp. they will help you in configuring the settings.

Let me know
Thanks

I have a compaq presario SR1303 Wm Desktop I wont connect to internet, stating that local area cable is unplugged, however this isn't true because I have another desktop same model that works fine...


If all looks good try right clicking on network status icon in sys tray and use repair. A more advance option would be to use ipconfig from the command prompt.

Start > Run (search in Win 7) > type ipconfig /release. Then ipconfig /renew. ipconfig ? will show you all the options. Good luck.

Can't access to internet service


Turn off your internet modem or router for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes turn on you internet modem or router and turn on your computer and when you are already on your desktop click start and click run then type cmd and press enter. On the command prompt type ipconfig/all and press enter and the ipaddress and gateway will appear on your screen but in case there is or no ipaddress and gateway type ipconfig/release then type ipconfig/renew this process will erase the IP settings and renew the IP and gateway. Also check your modem or router if the lights of the modem are blinking, usually three or four lights that are blinking. If the two lights blinking only call your Internet service provider and ask for assistance that you are having difficulties with internet connection. Have a nice day.

Cannot access internet on my desktop only on my laptop through dell 2350 router. If i bypass the router and hardwire right to the modem I can access the internet on my desktop. The router is someway not...


the desktop is being blocked, as the laptop works, i assume all the settings are OK in the router The desktop may have a firewall blocking access -- disable the firewall and see if you can reconnect
compare the ipconfig /all between your laptop and desktop to get to ipconfig do the following on both machines
Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type CMD - now a black box will open onto the screen type ipconfig /all into that box.
Now compare the list of numbers I'm making a few assumptions here BUT you are looking for DHCP to be YES on both pcs look at the ip address and the last number should be the only one thats different so something like 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3 the default gateway should have the same number

Not able to connect to desktop with ethernet cord


What is the current IP address?

Can you ping the default gateway?

Did you also do:ipconfig /flushdns and
ipconfig /registerdns

Have you tried uninstalling / reinstalling the network card? (inside device manager)

Hope any of this helps.

Check what is the ipaddress,tried to shut down the laptop and drain flea power.Then check if the laptop can detect wireless connection. Then ping website in command prompt.Try ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew. Try connecting wired internet connection to check if issue with operating system or browser or wireless connectivity.

My gateway gt5432 wireless interface is not working


Go into the device manager and uninstall (right click and choose uninstall) the network card, reinstall it by chooseing actions, scan for hardware changes (in the device manager). Its an Ip address conflict probably. or open a command screen by typing cmd in the run dialog and then type ipconfig at the curser. See if you have an Ip address, if not type in ipconfig "space" /renew. This will give your computer a new ip addy. Good Luck!

Laptop wireless connection


Hi .

LImited access no internet service means that Authentication of your wireless network is not up.

You must know what your wireless encryption is and you can check your manual/guide for your router or gateway on how to access it.If you dont have it anymore than you can access your router by using your desktop computer w/c im sure is hardwired to your router.

By using your desktop we need to look for you default gateway by ff the steps below.

For win xp:

Start > run > cmd .... on the Dos window type in ipconfig /all

it'l then show your default gateway . It would look like this .192.168.xxxx

If you have your default gateway , w/c is your routers physical address Open your favorite browser and on the address bar type in your default gateway.It would route you to your routers page. Most routers ask for your username and password.When youre able to access your router you'l have a chance now to view or change your wireless settings.

Hope that helps. Pls let us know if you have further questions or clarifications.

Good Luck .

Cheers.

ipconfig will show something like this
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.11.2
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.11.1

Network Connection


First off, the 1394 connection is a firewire connetion. Firewire is a less popular and slower alternative to USB 2.0 connections. Disregard that in respect to your internet connection. Now in regards to your desktop internet connection.... -Go to the control panel, select network connections, then local area connection. -Right click and select properties -Under the general tab scroll down to Internet protocal (tcp/ip) Make sure the settings are set to automatically obtain an IP address. If they are and still are not working you can try to manually assign an IP address yourself. The laptops ip address might be something like 192.168.1.2 so whatever your laptop ip address is make the desktop 1 number higher in the last field (192.168.1.3 for example). Don't change any numbers other than the last field. You can find out the other information like subnet mask and default gateway by using the laptop. On the laptop go to the start menu, hit run. Then type in cmd, this will bring up a dos prompt. Then finally type IPCONFIG . Listed will be the laptops active internet connections and it's IP addresses. Copy over the subnet mask IP address and the default gateway address into the desktop and like in the previous step just manually assign the desktop a different IP address 1 number higher than the laptop. If the dns server's address isn't listed on the laptop a quick call to your dsl provider will solve that question.
