Either unplug the router from power source for 10 seconds and plug back in to reset.
Or you may have an ip address on the pc itself that is conflicting with your daughter's ip address. Dynamic ip address are set so they don't interfere with each other. We use 4 different pc's on one router in our home.
You can change the ip address of your computer by going to start menu, then run, then type ipconfig /release, then type ipconfig /renew and it will give you a new one.

Or you can access the software and settings of the router itself by opening up an internet page, go to address bar and type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter.
It should bring you inside your router so you can check and switch any settings.

Unable to connect laptop to internet


Do you have wireless in the house? If not that's your problem.

If you look at the bottom right near the time you will see a little staircase that represents the wireless. if you click on it and select the option to Connect to A Network a window will open up showing you all the wireless networks within range. You want to select your network (the one in your house) and click Connect. If it requires a password or key, then provide it. That's all there is to it.

If you don't see the staircase at the bottom right near the time, more than likely you don't have the wireless turned on. Look on both sides of the laptop and at the front for a switch that controls the wireless.

Laptop can not connect to netgear wireless router


I would suggest using the network setup wizard, in the control panel. Best option is to copy the data to a pen drive and transfer to your daughters laptop.

Why can't I get online. I have internet connection and can get on with my sons laptop but not my daughters in the same house


Sometimes that happens with laptops. If at the bottom in the corner (where it shows your connection), it says local only, there's a problem. Try unplugging your router, then plugging it back in.

My daughter has the hp pavilion and it is not connecting to our wireless internet, can you help me


Step 1
Turn off all security at the wireless access point to test if it will connect. If it will, then the turn the security back on making sure you choose a security type that matches eg WEP or WPA at both the wireless access point and the laptop.
Increase the security to the highest level that both devices can use.
IF the wireless does not connect with security off, then test the laptop at another access point (friend's house?) to see if it the laptop. Or test the access point with someone else's known good laptop. From that point you will have isolated which component needs attention.

New wireless system installed in house.


You can simply deactivate Norton IS by right clicking its icon in the bottom right corner and clicking it's exit or shutdown command (or whatever command it uses).

However are you sure the laptop is accessing the wireless network?

Also how many other PC's do you have? Are they able to access the wireless network and the internet?

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

My Daughter's New Laptop's Internet Connection


Make sure that the Local area connection is enabled or installed properly. Also Cable ISP such as charter registers the MAC address of the main pc on their system that is why it will not recognize your daughters laptop. You can contact charter so they can register the mac address of her NIC on their system.

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
