Win xp home, user accounts won't connect to net

Hi

I have a dell laptop that connects to wirelessly to a 3com router. This still works fine on the admin account but the other 3 limited user acounts will not connect. I can even ping the router from the command line in these accounts. It is running win xp home with sp3. Any ideas plaese?

    This is a combined router/switch...........the accounts are all on one machine, it wasn't just that they didn't have access to the internet, the wireless connection was down as well. As soon as I uprated the accounts to admin accounts they were able to connect to the wireless switch/router. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I will be trying to setup the accounts as limited users again and see if the same thing happens

Hey there tabath, I have recently encountered this problem. It turned out that we were connected via a switch rather than a router. It seems the switch will allow you to network with each other, but only allow the admin connection to access the internet. Please check your exact model as 3com manufactures both products. Hope this helps.Good Luck!

Laptop running 0n win 7 wont connect to router


1. you will have to designate the laptop or allow it to connect by entering it into the 3com router.
2. try connecting to the router via ethernet cord (that is connecting with a physical straight through cord) that came with the router.
If connected with this then you will have to go into the router via the IP set 192.168..0.1 depending on the router ip for loging in.
2. Go to the "wireless setup" and enter your MAC address for the laptop in the permissions list in the router. Instructions on how to do this is at the manufacturers site. Step by step.
3. Do the following step if instructions not found.
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP adresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Dell Inspiron 2200; Win XP pro; detect router but no connect


Have you change settings on your router? if not try to disconnect and reconnect your dell computer. if still not working. turn off both laptop, turn off the router and modem. wait for 10-20 seconds then turn on the modem first, and if the modem is stable, turn on the router, and if it is stable, turn on the dell computer and try to connect. If still fails, try to delete wireless profile adn recreate it. If still fails, check device manger if there is a problem in your wireless driver. If still cannot connect, perform system restore.

Wireless connection


Did you change your wireless SSID and channel? Better to enable encryption too. If this problem never happens when you're connecting to other wireless networks you might as well update or reload the firmware/software of your router.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
