    Are you trying to connect via a wireless connection? You need to give more information. What make and model modem? What make and model wireless card? What operating system for the laptop? Can you connect to the internet using a cat5 cable? One thing to check, connect to your router and see if the wireless is activated. You can usually connect to it by typing in the following url in your web browser: http://192.168.1.1 or sometimeshttp://192.168.1.0 orhttp://192.168.0.0. You will need to do this using a PC already connected to the internet on that router.

Check your connections. 1. Wired: directly connected to the modem (not the router) If this works, the router is the issue. 2. Wired directly to the router If this works then wireless is the problem 3. Wireless Check Key for accuracy, Upper and lower case matters. Check that your router does not have MAC address restrictions 4. Clear the cache on the laptop IE. Use the Options menu to clear this.

I have an active internet connection. in fact, my pc works with this connection.. i tried to connect my laptop to the internet, but it didn't prompt as it usually do..it used to show the sharing icon on...


hard to answer your question without knowing what Operating System you have on your PC and laptops connections, eg. LAN, wireless etc.

If you have windows XP you will need to check Network Connections on your laptop to make sure the Internet connection is showing as connected.

Click on Start - Control Panel -- network connections.

Check if Internet gateway is setup

If not go to Internet Options in Control Panel and setup the Internet connection using the right buttons.

I cannot guide you if you have Vista or Win 7.

How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif
  1. Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
  2. On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
  3. Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
  4. In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"97ac799.jpg
  5. In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
  6. Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
  7. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
  12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
  13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
  14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
  15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
  16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
  17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
  18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
  19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server.

THE internet is coming up internet explorer can not be connected, when it's wireless. we can plug it in and then the internet comes up.


you have to configure your wireless modem (wep/wpa) so that your laptop can connect to the internet. the reason why you cannot connect in the internet thru wireless is that the connection between the modem and the laptop has not been established. so, try to establish the connection between your laptop and the modem.
