Hi, the IP protocol is installed and configured when the network adapter (your wifi card) is installed. try re intalling the driver by right clicking on My Compter, go to properties then device manager. right click on your wireless adapter in the list and choose uninstall. reboot and then run the process again to re-install. it will be in the list with a yellow question mark. right click and install driver. you need to download the driver first from packard bell's website.

Changing TCP/IP settings Win 7 TCP/IP defines how your computer communicates with other computers.
To make it easier to manage TCP/IP settings, we recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP automatically assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your TCP/IP settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure TCP/IP settings, such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS). To enable DHCP or change other TCP/IP settings, follow these steps:
  1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, typeadapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties. 25e7e385-9327-4f7d-aab0-afa5aaf952ba_49.jpgThe Network Connection Properties dialog box
  4. To specify IPv4 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IP address, and then, in the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  5. To specify IPv6 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IPv6 address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IPv6 address, and then, in the IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  6. To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get a DNS server address automatically using DHCP, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.

My laptop drops the internet then in a moment it comes back then repeats over and over


Several computer models include two specific hardware components that enable the device to connect to the Internet: an Ethernet adapter card and a wireless adapter card.

These cards are also called network adapters, or network cards.
If your computer suffers from an intermittent Internet connection, and your Internet service provider (ISP) doesn't detect any issues on their end, you can update the software for the network adapters to resolve the intermittent connection.

If updating the adapters doesn't resolve the problem, reset the transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP) and Winsock to restore the connection.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel."
Type "manager" into the search bar.
Click "Device Manager."

Expand "Network Adapters."
You should have one wired adapter and one wireless adapter, if the computer has wireless support.

Double-click each adapter.
Write down the name of the adapter, as well as the manufacturer's name.

Go to the computer or network adapter manufacturer's website if you installed the adapter to the computer yourself.
If the adapter came with the computer, go to the computer manufacturer's site instead.

Select the "Support," "Download" or "Drivers" page.
Look up your computer or adapter model.

Select your operating system.
Click the "Network," "LAN" or "Internet" category.

Download the latest adapters for your network devices.
Click "Save" or "Save As" and save the files to your desktop.

Return to Device Manager. Right-click the first device. Click "Update Driver Software."
Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software."

Follow the remaining on-screen directions to reinstall the device driver.
Repeat the process for the other network device.

Restart the computer after reinstalling the drivers to repair the intermittent Internet issue.

Reset IP

Log in to Windows as an administrator.
Hold down the Ctrl, Shift and Esc keys to open Windows Task Manager.

Click "File." Click "New Task." Type "cmd" and press Enter to open Command Prompt.

Type "netsh int IP reset c:\resetlog.txt" into the Command Prompt.
Press Enter to rewrite the TCP/IP registry keys.

Enter "netsh winsock reset" into the command-line prompt.
Press Enter to reset the Winsock catalog and resolve the intermittent Internet problem.

I dont know how to connect to the internet


Hello,
1.Install your wireless network adapter in Windows XP with SP2. This process includes installing the proper drivers for your wireless network adapter so it appears as a wireless connection in Network Connections.

2.When the computer is within range of the wireless AP operating in your home or small business, Windows XP should detect it and prompt you with a Wireless networks detected message in the notification area of your taskbar.

3. Click the notification message. If you are not notified, right-click the wireless network adapter in Network Connections and click View Available Wireless Networks. In either case, you should see a dialog box with the name of the wireless connection.

4 Double-click your wireless network name. Windows XP will attempt to connect to your wireless network.

5.Because Windows XP has not been configured with the WEP encryption key for your wireless network, the connection attempt will fail and Windows XP will prompt you with a Wireless Network Connection dialog box. Type the WEP key in Network key and Confirm network key, and then click Connect.

6.If the status message for your wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box is Connected, you are done. If the status message for your wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box is Authentication did not succeed, click Change the order of preferred networks in the list of Related tasks. From the Wireless Networks tab of properties of your wireless network adapter, click the name of your wireless network in Preferred networks, and then click Properties.

No ip address on computer


IP addresses are generally assigned when you connect to another networking device such as a router, switch, or modem. You should first go to your Network Connections and right click on your networking device and click on properties. Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and hit properties. Then click on the box that says Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically. Now when you make connection with the router, switch or modem it should assign you an IP address. If this doesn't happen then you need to check your network cable, or wireless log in proceedure to find out why you're not connecting. These rules aren't for all systems. Some ISPs may require you to put in DNS servers and IP addresses. If the above doesn't help then contact your ISP to find out if there are specific settings. You can also view your Network Configuration settings by going to "Start" > "Run" cmd then in the window type /ipconfig /all. If you're connected properly you should have IP address, default gateway, DNS server and DHCP servers.

Internet hookup


This is not the manufacturer's site, but i will try to help.
Is it your own network?
You need to make sure that the network is not protected, or you'll need the password.
Go to Start>Control Panel on your computer
Then go to Network Connections
There should be an icon for your wireless connection.
Right-click -> select Properties
In the selectbox select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)'
Click Properties
Check if 'Obtain an IP-address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS-server' are selected
If they were not, Press <Ok> two times and try to connect to the wireless network again.

Can you also tell what IP-address you get?
Find it by going to Start > Run
Type 'cmd' without the quotation marks and press <Ok>
you get a black command box
type 'ipconfig', again without the quotation marks and press <Enter>
Please tell me the IP-address it tells you...

Hi
I am try to take a stab at answering your query.

Internet Protocol (IP) Address preceeding with "169" means your PC is not receiving IP Address "generally" from your Boradband Modem or Internet Service Provider (ISP). The PC through Automatic Private Internet Protocol Addressing (APIPA) is assigning itself a temporal IP address.
This conditions means either
1. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client service is not running properly on your PC (Unlikely)
2. There is no connection between your PC and Broadband Device or ISP wired or wirelessly (very likely)
3. DHCP Server Service is not configured or not running on Boardband device (likely) or ISP (unlikely)
4. Some firewall software when improperly configured are known to block all ports and services. This can block TCP Ports 67 and 68 used by DHCP Client/Server communication (quite likely)
Some pointers for more info;
1. Your query suggest your issues are limited to Wireless connection. Can you access Internet through wired connection? If so;
a) What Wired connection is in use? USB or Ethernet?
b) Is wired connection through same Broadband device?
c) What IP is assigned to your PC in wired connection?
d) If wired connection works, is IP assignment static or by DHCP?
e) What Boardband device is in use? In which mode is the device set to? Router/Bridge
2. If you can't connect both wired and wireless, then it is unlikely your PC hardware is at fault. Call your Broadband Provider for further help and configuration. Try entily disabling your firwall software (if installed) and test conection.
3. If you can connect through wired connection and your IP Address does not proceed with "192.168" or "172.16" then your boadband device is likely in a bridge mode. In bridge mode, the DHCP Server Service on your boardband device is disabled. Most ISPs will only assign only one IP address to a user. If an IP address has been assigned to your PC on the wired connection, then the wireless connection will not receive an IP address and therefore your PC will assign itself an IP in the range "169.254"
