I can't connect through network can't connect by pinging

Can you ping your router?
If you can, log into it and see if you have any problems with it. If you have ADSL, you will see the status of the line as well as whether you are connected or not. You may have a diagnostic feature that will test the connection to your provider.

If you have lost DNS with your provider, you will not be able to ping using names, only by IP addresses.

Connection issues

To troubleshoot the issue follow the below steps

1.Try disbaling and enabling the wireless lan card

2.Check whether Ip addresses assigned in the wireless network card.If the address is assigned by dhcp and not assigned in network card means assign static ip in the range supported in the networkand ping the website or gateway.

3.If the ip is assigned already means try pinging the gateway and dns server .If ping is success means the connection between router and pc and internet is good .In that case you have to check whether authentication is successful if any authentication is used.

Wireless Router showing as connected, but cannot access Internet.

You have _THREE_ separate network connections to check:

1. your router, through your ADSL modem, to your ISP;

2. your computer, through an Ethernet cable, to your router;

3. your computer, through its wireless adapter, to the wireless adapter in your router.


1. Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop directly to your ADSL modem, bypassing the router.
Turn the router off.
Restart the modem.
Restart the computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.249
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.1
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Enter PING 123.456.789.1 and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot your connection.

2. Turn off the ADSL modem.
Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Enter PING and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then your router is not working.
If PING does respond, connect another Ethernet cable from the WAN port on the router to the ADSL modem.
Turn the modem on, and wait until the flashing-lights on the modem, and on the router, settle-down to a steady pattern.
If PING responds, then everything is fine.

3. If you fix #1 and #2, above, then your wireless adapter should work.

Can connect to 2wire, but can't browse

What is the ip address you got from the 2wire router. ??

Try release and renew for new ip. Clear the cache and temporary internet files, and then try pinging the router's gateway ip and check . If pinging. then ping any website's ip address. if successful then try going online. Else you need to power off and power on your router and then try again.

You must check if your PC is getting correct IP from your router by running ipconfig on DOS command. The Default Gateway must shows Just to be sure this IP is accessible, run a ping test (Ping

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms


You will see the above results if the test is successful. If it failed, possible a Firewall is blocking the PC to access the Router. Try to disable it and see if it will works. If the same issue or even the test passed but can't access the IP address, reset the router to factory defaults by pressing the small hole at the back of the router. Then do the above steps again to see if you can now access it. Hope this helps.

Connecting browser

I would try resetting the router to factory defaults(most have a reset button you can press). After resetting, if you still can't get outside acess, try to ping ip, and let me know if if that is successful or fails(Start>run>cmd, then type in "ping" without quotes)

Configuration Utility

Can you ping the router? I mean open a dos shell, type ping -tf - what are the results? Maybe the ping fails, because you need to have your pc set to the same subnet address, to access the router on that IP. Test ping to your own gateway address first.. That will work & show you what to expect from a working ping. You get the gateway address by opening a dos shell & typing ipconfig /all - that shows the current IP address plus the gateway address. Actually, the gatway address might be the same as the router config address, unless you have a NAT function turned on.. Anyway, if you change your IP address to - For example, you will no longer be able to access the internet, but shud be able to enter the configuration web page of the router.. Try the router default settings first. Another thing is that some routers require a direct cable called a 'crossover' cable to connect to the router or you have to go via a hub or a switch, with standard ethernet cables.. This probably looks confusing, but if it does not help, pls post your questions here.. Rgds,

Wireless connection

Go to your PC.

Start --> Run -- > cmd -->ipconfig. Chk the ip address in the default gateway. From ur laptop. chk if you can ping that ip. To ping -- Start --> Run --> cmd -- > ping

If you cant ping it, just means there is no communicaition betwen the router and the computer. Meanwhile, make sure that the laptop is close enough to the router and you have a good signal strength.
