    Hello, thanks for your prompt reply. The desktop has the ethernet cord connected to the 2wire. The ethernet cord is plugged into the 2wire and to the desktop modem. The 2wire also has a phone line cord in it as well. I have three laptops and all work perfectly using wireless. I hope that helps:).

Hi,

If the laptop is working then your router is probably working correctly. Is the desktop wired to the router or running wireless?

I am trying to get online but everytime i click the entrnet explorer it just says dns error i dont know what to do


A "DNS" server is a "DOMAIN NAME SERVER" -- you feed it a name, such as 'www.ebay.com', and it returns an IP-address. Then, the Internet "routes" your traffic to that IP-address, and eBay's web-server responds to your request, and sends a web-page to your IP-address.

A "DNS error" means either:
* there is no IP-address associated with the name, as you spelled it, e.g., 'ww.ebaay.co', or,
* your computer could not connect to the DNS-server, and so could not send the query,
* your computer does not know the IP-address of the DNS-server, and thus has "nowhere" to send your DNS-query.

hello, sometimes it happens like that. i suggest you try using a virtual ip address(change your ip address to another country manually) and see if you will be able to access the website. and also check if you can open hotmail on that computer.

Laptop finding router but no internet connection


If you can connect directly to your virgin Media Broadband and get internet then your laptop and broadband router is fine.

The wireless router appears not to have a DNS entry and you will need to add that manually.

I suggest that you connect directly to the Broadband modem, be sure you can get onto the internet. Once you have confirmed you can get onto the internet you need to get the dns information from your Broadband modem for later.

once connected directly to the broadband modem, click start>run> then type "CMD" then click open. you will get a prompt type the following and record the DNS Server ip addresses.

"ipconfig /all" then hit enter
this will display your ipaddress information but mostly you need the DNS server ip addresses.

once you have recorded them rerun the install, but this time instead of at the end of the install where it shows the Wireless router information you can modify or change it and add the DNS server entries.

Also by default most wireless routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 and you can type that from a internet explorer and change it from there as well. I believe it's no ID or user name and the password is admin.

Good luck

Still Having Trouble with Wireless Network


Hi ther Jeff!

Let's check the IP address of the laptop. You said that it is connected to the wireless network "linksys". Go back to Control Panel>Network connections. Right click on wireless network connection then click Status. Then, click on Support tab and tell me the IP address you have in there. Click details to get the DNS server addresses.

Let me know these information. You are right, there could be proxy servers enabled in the browser that's preventing you to open a website. What version of IE are you using?

On your IE browser, click TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS>CONNECTIONS. From Connections tab, click on LAN Settings. Make sure that there is nothing enabled or check on that window. Then click ok.

Go to Security tab. Then click Custom Level. Look for the option "Reset Custom Settings to" which you will find somewhere at the bottom of the page. Set the custom settings to medium-low. If there is no option for medium-low, then select the lowest option. Click ok all the way out and try launching IE again.

Do a ping also to a certain website and tell me if you'll be able to get responses from that site. Open up command prompt. START>RUN>CMD. Then on the cursor, type ping yahoo.com then press enter. Take note of the ping statistics.

If you have Internet Security firewall enabled in the laptop, turn it off. It can cause a conflict with your router's built in firewall.

Please update me about this incident.

it is normally 192.168.1.254 for this router, but if you have pinged it the router must be ok, double check your isp password and usename and PPOe or PPOA setting and that the mtu is set correct for your isp.
