Internet connection randomly dies

Hi, I have an IBM Thinkpad T42 from my office. I used to connect on the wireless network of my home without problem. Last week my computer has some probelem and the PC support of the company reinstalled the system. Since then i am facing some problem to connect on my wireless at home. After some minutes or hours of connection, my internet will stop all of a sudden. Although my computes shows that i am connected to the network, i can't have internet. Then i will have internet for an other 10 to 20 minutes if i restart my computer. Th same problem happen if i am using the cable to connect to my router. My flatmates are OK, they don't have any problem with their computers.

Please help

Re: Internet connection randomly dies

When you connected to the internet via wireless, click start, click run, when box appears type CMD then press enter, when black screen appears, tupe in IPCONFIG then look for the word gateway below it will have a set of numbers at the side of it like copy them down, next open the internet explorer and in the address bar type in the numbers with a dot in-between them three dots in total then press enter, your router settings will open up on screen, look for the wireless tab then have a look for what the time out settings are set for and change them for 99 minutes, sometime they are factory set for 10 min idle time then turn you off. When you have changed to 99 Mins apply / save changes then switch off the router only for 10 seconds then turn back on, then turn off your lap top and then restart it after 10 seconds,
let me know??

72955587_xs.jpg Wireless routers connect computers to a network without the need for network cables.

Wireless routers are used to connect computers into a network without running network cables throughout your home or office. Netgear wireless router settings must be changed using the router's Web-based interface. Any computer that is "hard wired" with a network cable to the router, rather than on a wireless connection, can be used to access the router. From the Settings menu, options such as "Encryptionicon1.png," "Network setup details" and "Passwords" can be customized.

      On a computer that is connected to the routericon1.png with a network cable, open any Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. In the address bar, type "" (without the quotes) and press "Enter." This will bring up the login prompt for most Netgear wireless routers. If that doesn't work, try "", "", or "" until the login window appears.

      Type "admin" in the Username field, type "password" in the Password field and click "OK." If the password fails, try "1234," "Password" with a capital "P" or "admin". Once you enter the proper credentials, the settings screen will open.

      Make any required changes to the settings. Under Security section, it is possible to specify a new username and password for added security. Once you have saved your changes, close the window, and the system will automatically log you out.

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

Cannot connect to SonicWall VPN

My guess is that dhcp is using the same private network scheme. Try changing your home network scheme to something different than your office.
For example:
Office = 192.168.1.x
home = 192.168.2.x

How do I set up a home network without internet?


By default, your wireless connection for your 2wire 1000HW is enabled.Assuming that everything is installed properly in your laptop ie wireless cards etc. than you can view your wireless connection using Dell Wireless connection tool and HP wireless tool. Your know its your network when it says 2wirexxxx {x=combined numbers}. To locate the built-in, 10-digit wireless encryption key for your system, please look at the bottom of the product [2wire] near the bar code label - looks like this : [xxxxxxxxxx].

If you want to access the 2wire Graphic Unit Interface ,you can access it by opening your browser and on your address bar type in homeportal- assuming you are able to connect to your 2wire wirelessly. You can view your network and change you wireless settings. This may also help you :

To connect your printer you must have a Print Server [ dep[ends on what model of laserjet you are using } and connected to your printer. Again you will need the encryption key to get it running. You must share your printer on each laptop by going to control panel and share it . In there you willl have the chance to change and modify the settings. You can also use the Windows File and Sharing Wizard. to get it both running.

Hope that would help you a bit. Pls feel free to post your questions in Fixya for further assistance.

Wish you all the best.

D-Link DI-524 AirPlus G - Laptop Cannot Connect to the Internet

Go to control panel>network connections, right click, then properties, then click the TCP/IP line, properties again and ensure that 'obtain ip address automatically' is ticked, click ok,  then close down the window, right click on the network icon again and then properties, then view wireless connections.


Any that appear in this list including your own if it shows need to be deleted, then when you close the window a pop up should appear in the task bar saying wireless networks detected, click the bubble then highlight your connection, click connect and if security is turned on you will be prompted to enter the passkey.


In the routers settings ensure that DHCP is enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically, then reboot the router if neccasary.
