Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

I'm trying to re-confirgure my nephews laptop. He messed up the internet setting for wireless networking. I was thinking of just going ahead Aand erasing everything and re-install WINDOWS xp , But he has...


ok so you are connected to the wifi network. if your wifi is broadcasting internet and you got server nt found errors, it could be a browser problem...also, are there any other computers connected in the same network that can't connect to the internet? if so, then it is a network configuration error

if it is a browser's error, misconfiguration, etc, try to check:

1. right click on the IE's icon on desktop and click properties
2. Go to Connections tab
3. Click on LAN Setting
4. Check "Automatically detect settings

Make sure also that in your browser, you did not check the "Work Offline" option. Look at it at the File menu

Its not connecting proprely to the internet


You forgot to mentioned the kind of what brand of wireless router you have. first you have to activate or properly setup the wireless router. the factory default ip address is 192.168.1.1 Go to web browser even it will say fail to connect to server. type in 192.168.1.1 to the address bar. the default user id admin and the password is password. wireless basic setup is the first one, next is the wireless setting. Since I have no clue what kind or brand you have there is a setting for b,g,n most likely your laptop is a g signal. if the router is set for n signal your laptop will not connect. make sure to set to b,g,n setting and this will work. your laptop will connect to the internet. oh I forgot to mention to set for wep key or passphrase. then input the to your laptop to connect. I hfope this will help you solve the problem.

Wireless internet connection


Hi, A couple of things you should check: 1. Has the "wireless internet user" enabled his Internet Sharing? If yes, how has is this user sharing it with you, through an AP/Router? 2. If he is using an AP/Router, are there any security settings enabled such as WEP, WPA, or MAC Filter? If yes, you have to get the security key and enter it into your configuration. 3. Is the DHCP Server in the AP/Router enabled? 4. If yes to #3, have you made your networking "Obtain an IP Address Automatically? 5. If no, you have to get/set the allowed IP address that you can use, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers; 6. Can you ping the AP/Router or at least the "wireless internet" user IP Address. To ping, Start, Run, type "cmd", type "ping IP add of wireless internet user and/or AP/Router; 7. In your browser, enable Auto detect proxy settings for this connection; Pls post back with: a. How do you connect, a wifi card/USB or built-in? b. What AP/Router are you connecting to? c. What browser are you using, IE, Mozilla, Opera? Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
