Why cant i get wifi or wireless internet to work


Bill:
depends on how u r hooked to internet. direct thru cat5 cable to modem, or wirelessly thru router? then, you must make sure that your modem is connected to web? make sure modem is connected; plug in to desktop(off) then turn desktop on; go to start, then control panel, then Network and Internet; find out if you see a connection? if so, then right click on network connection, click on Troubleshoot Issues. this will try to resolve your internet connectivity. if you still cannot get online, call your internet provider for more specific steps in fixing.

Connect your computer directly to the Internet modem and make sure that you have Internet access directly from the modem.
If that is working properly then connect the modem to the Internet port on the router. Connect the computer to port 1 on the router.
Reset the router and configure it manually.

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

Xbox live lag


This could happen for many reasons. It could be other people using up all you internet. If possible connect your xbox directly to your router or modem and see if that fixes the problem. If not use speedtest.net and see if the speed you are getting is what you are paying for.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can do so you can isolate whether the problem is with the router , the modem or your pc.
1. Disable / enable the wireless connectivity in your laptop.2. Restart the laptop. Then check if it is working. If not, go to the next step.
3. Restart your modem and router by unplugging the power cord on the back of the devices. Wait for the devices to load, then check if it is working. If not, proceed to the next step.
4. Try connecting your laptop to the modem directly by using an ethernet cable. If it did work, the problem is with the router. Its best to call the manufacturer of your wireless router if that's the case.
5. If step 5 still didnt work when you already connected your laptop directly to the modem, the problem is with the modem itself. Call your internet service provider and they'll do troubleshooting steps on their end too.
Hope this was helpful! Have a great day.

I am trying to reconnect to the internet I put a new modem in for my internet service trying to connect my router to my ps3 and it won't let me can you please tell me what i have to do. Thank You


Hi there,
I see that you have replaced you modem. Have you tried connecting your pc directly to the modem? If you do not have any internet connection when connected directly to the modem, you have to call your Internet Service Provider to setup your new modem. If you can access the internet using your new modem then there is a problem with the router. You have to re-setup your router to make it work.

Just installed win 7 and can't get internet on


Can't connect to the Internet using Windows 7 OS.
1. If you haven't already done so, run the Network troubleshooter to see if it can help diagnose and solve your problem.
Open the Network troubleshooter by right-clicking the network icon in the notification area, and then clicking Troubleshoot problems.
2. Make sure that all cables are connected (for example, make sure your modem is connected to a working phone jack or cable connection, either directly or through a router).
3. Restart your modem, and then restart your router. Remove the power cable from the modem and router. After all lights on the device have gone out, wait at least 10 seconds, and then plug the modem and router back in. Some modems have a battery backup that prevents the lights from going out. For this type of modem, press and quickly release the Reset button.
4. Check your router. Because of the new networking features in Windows Vista andWindows 7, some older network routers are not fully compatible with these versions of Windows and can cause problems. You can test your router to see whether it is fully compatible with Windows 7 by running the Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool. Or, for a list of routers that are compatible with Windows Vista, go to the WindowsCompatibility Center website.

IE has been only working off and on all day. What


Probably internet connection issues.

(***Do this after talking with ISP***) Power down your modem, router, and computer. Check to make sure the internet cable is secure. If you have a replacement cable try it. Power up your modem 1st (wait 1 min.), power up you router, then your computer.

***1st check with your ISP*** (Internet provider... cable or dsl) to ask them to check the integrity of their line to your modem (they can do this easily). They will give you a rating of Good, Poor, No Connection. They will help you if it is Poor or No Connection (their side problem). If it is good they may have you power down the modem (and router-if you have one) and connect your computer directly to the modem (and reboot) to help troubleshoot.
