Connected to wifi but no internet connection

Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.

Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.

In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.

Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.

If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.

If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.

Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.

Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.

Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.

If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.

If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.

The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.

Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.

Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.

If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.

Hope this helps

Can i connect new pc to old connection

You simply need to disconnect old computer from the network and connect the new one.
Are you trying to connect wired computer or wireless?

If you are trying to connect a wired computer then you don't need to do anything.
Just take out the Ethernet cable from the old computer and connect it to the new computer.

If you are connecting a wireless computer to the network then make sure that you have all the settings of your wireless router.
If your wireless network is secured then you should know the correct network key.
What is the operating system on your computer?

I will suggest you a website " The Router Setup " which may help you connect your new computer to the old wireless network.

My internet works on my main computer but my secound computer which is wirelessly connect does not work.

Have you tried connecting the 2nd computer wihtout any security first to make sure it works like that? Just have it set up for a minute or so to test. Once that's done, try using the more secure WEP or WPA settings. Make sure the MAC Filtering is not on for this as well as it will not let anything work unless the MAC exactly maches. There are lots of nitpicky settings on the security side of the wireless router. Try to follow the directions that came with the router. Also, if the laptop came with software for the wireless connection, try to use that and don't let Windows handle the wireless connection. I've had better results not letting Windows configure it.

Did you install the AirPlus Software?
  • Boot the computer without the card then insert
  • Go to My Network Place and check your wireless configuration
  • The card should have a light when it working correctly
  • Contact D-Link Tech Support, or purchase a new card!
