Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Wireless network connected but no internet

I installed a copy of Norton 360 on my laptop a bit ago and after the install when I connected to my wireless network. I could not use the internet. I was able to connect to the network but nothing else. Other computers connected to the network work fine.

I took the laptop to a friends and it didn't work on his network either. His computers work fine on his network. The drivers are updated and working correctly.

One driver had a flag that said that a program was preventing it from running. The device with the flag was the real tech rtl8101e family pci-e fast Ethernet NIC. It is updated and works fine now.

It simply doesn't connect... Please help. If you need more info just ask.

Try to reboot the computer in safe mode with networking. Tap F8 during the boot sequence when you see the manufacturers splash screen. Once it boots in safe mode, see if you can get online. If you can, then the problem is a program or driver that starts during normal startup procedures....I suspect Norton 360....it screws more systems up than it helps. I would suggest at that point you have a couple of options.....get the norton system removal tool and get rid of that program and when you do make sure to reset all your security, especially your firewall. Next, if you still can't get online, Use system restore to restore the computer back before you installed Norton. Also make sure that if have changed the normal startup to selective startup, that might give you issues too. Go to the start button on your taskbar, select run > type "msconfig" in the text box...leave off the quotation marks please. When the window opens make sure that normal start is chosen and reboot. Good luck, if none of this helps, I can talk you through some CMD lines to see if you have a valid IP address to your router.

How do i install norton internet security,having had norton 360 previously-this was purchased from retail store


If you've purchased it in the store you should have a disc that you can use to install your copy of Norton. If the internet security option is included in your copy you should be able to install that from the disc as well.

Problem with Network driver (Dell Inspiron 1525)


I might be a bit late on this but I had the exact same problem just a couple of days ago. What I did was download the drivers needed fromhere (download the two drivers in the Network section). I downloaded these from a different computer then you have to copy and save them to a flash drive and transfer them to your computer and install from there. Your wireless should work after doing this.

No Internet Connection after Installing Norton 360


I had same problem. I went to Start\All Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore. I picked date before which Norton 360 was installed. It got my internet connection back. I'm not even going to try Norton anymore. Time better spent trying to get my money back.

mmm a mystery...
are you part of a network or adhoc are others able to connect to ur pc.
you could download the drivers and reinstall them and if spyware doctor and win defender are registered you can always retrieve them.
after doing this I would consider installing norton antivirus or norton 360..I use norton 360 on all my machines.

Virus


Install an updated full version of antivirus. Your antivirus might-be-out of date. I recommend you to use avast or avg 8. They will remove all the viruses they detect from your system. But remember to install only one antivirus because installing more than one antivirus can clash down your computer. After installing the new antivirus, scan your computer and delete all the detected viruses. Delete also your temporary internet files, cookies, cache,etc. To do this, follow these steps:
  • Go to Start, Control Panel.
  • Network and Internet Connections
  • Internet Options
  • In the Browsing History, click Delete...
  • Delete Browsing History box appears, Click Delete All button found at the bottom.
  • Reboot your computer.
