I have a netgear wireless router, I was able to get internet access for a few weeks then the other day the laptop will not connect. It gets an IP address and subnet mask but will not get a default gateway or dns server addy.
I have added the ip addy, default gateway and dns server addy and when I repair it clears everything but still does not give me the dns server. Please help

is your laptop getting a DHCP address? is it getting the correct DNS? Do this by going to control panel. Network Connections. Right click on the wireless connection. choose properties. double click oo TCP/IP. set to DHCP
Also check your Internet Explorer settings to see if it is using a proxy server under internet options. connection settings. If it is on or set to a proxy server. turn it off.
If you are trying to connect your wireless router to your ADSL modem then ( ADSL Modem -->Wireless Router-->Your Computer) dont enter any values in the ISP, DNS and MAC address fields. Let them be on default as : Domain
Name Server (DNS) Address
Get Automatically From ISP
Use Default Address This would then automatically pick up the settings from your modem.
You should remember to ad a WEP key to secure your wireless.
first enter to your network connections in control panel, double click local area network, properties, internet protocol(TCP/IP), and tick Obtain an IP adress....Obtain DNS server..... and after that ok...ok..ok. Now open an internet explorer window and type in the adress bar 192.168.1.1 and press enter . if you are asked for username or password try writing admin on both. good luck!
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.

if you give the automatic ip address obtian throught dhcp in that you give proxery server if there then remove it . and go to the router page and go to dhcp in that you enable and give the dns there and ip address you isp . then you get it after then you not get it then disable the proxery server. in laptop give both automatic.
