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.
There might be a problem w/ your IP address or DNS server, try to open LOCAL AREA NETWORK CONNECTION STATUS in your laptop running xp, click support/details, Then copy the DNS server address and alternative dns server address.
open your vista go to Network Connection/LAN properties, then double click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP, mark obtain ip address automatically, then the lower side Mark USE THE FOLLOWING SEVER ADDRESS then paste the dns server address which you copied from xp laptop. same w/ alternate dns server, and then click OK. DONE. JUST TRY IF ITS HELP FULL.
This could be a few things. all are simple settings.
If you can see other computers but can't get out, your acer needs the gateway ip number. If you are running DHCP this should be automatically set but you can also manually edit the IPV4 settings TCP/IP and add the gateway as well as the other settings. The gateway is the ip# of your router that is connected to the cable modem or the dsl modem.
As long as you don't have the number range set you can fairly safely add any number in the allowable range. So you could edit the tcp/ip settings with something like the following:
adress: 192.168.2.25 netmask: 255.255.255.0 gateway: 192.168.2.1 ** insert actual addy of router.
DNS servers can be found on your isp's info page. You can use any dns server that will let you connect. Without the dns you won't get out on the net either unless supplied by DHCP.
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.
check that u have properly configured ip address
gateways and dns
try pinging gateway if u get ping then try pinging ur dns servers.
if u get ping from dns server ur brouser might got curropt if not you need to reconfigure ur wireless router.
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.
so chitodel click on start button
then CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS> right click WIRLESS CONNECTION>PROPERTIES>in GENERAL tab click on INTERNET PROTOCOL>PROPERTIES and then click OBTAIN AN IP ADDRESS & OBTAIN DNS SERVER ADDRESS AT LAST CLICK O.K. this will help u try it now..........................
