Have checked the IP address both should be in the same class like 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2

after setting the IP address
go to run type ping 192.168.1.1 or 2 each other to ensure they are talking propely.

check the serviceability of crossover cable also.

My laptop will not get the intenet, i have all the drivers and the wieless is working


I had the same problem and for some reason it never would connect. I dont know if it fixed itself or what, but I went in and defragged my hard drive and turned off my firewall temporarily. then tried it again and it worked! then went in and emptied the cache and deleted any old internet temp files.

Just cleaned up my internet files so to speak. then once I was able to establish a connection< I went back in and turned my fire wall back on. It has been working every since. I dont know if that will work for you, but it worked for me.... maybe worth a try!

I keep losing my wireless connection inside my home. My modem is in the basement and I want to use my laptop upstairs. I use an N router and have cable internet. My house is also wired with Cat 5 wiring...


Well , the connection upstairs depends on the capabilities of the router that how much coverage it can give for the wireless clients associated.

Since , it is a N-router so try upgrading the drivers for it , the technical term will be firmware.Upgrade the firmware of the router to the latest one and you might have your issue resolved.

Hi raji767. You left out a few important details such as which operating system you are using and if the WiFi signal you are trying to connect to is encrypted. I will try to give the best step by step instructions I can based on the info you gave. I am assuming you are using either Windows XP or Vista. First, make sure the wireless is turned on. There is a button on the side by the headphone jack which turns the wireless on and off.
WINDOWS XP: Click Start, Control Panel. On the left side of the control panel window you should see "switch to classic view" or "switch to category view". To make it easy, make sure you are in classic view. Next double click the icon labeled "Network Connections". Next, right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" and select "View Available Wireless Networks". In this window you should see the network you are trying to connect to. Next just select the network and click connect. NOTE: If the network is encrypted, you will need to enter the key after pressing connect.
VISTA: First, go to "Start Menu", "Control Panel", "Network and Internet". Next, go to "Network and Sharing Center" and select "Connect to a network". Choose "Show All" and hit the refresh button. Now just select the network you want to connect to and click connect.
NOTE: If the network is encrypted, you will need to enter the key after pressing connect.
Hope this helps. If you have any questions just let me know. Good Luck!

Connect ps3 to laptop via web and walk


Connecting PS3 to a network I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me, was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

How to solve the lan problem


With only Cat 5 UTP cable segments, the maximum length for any cable segment is 100 meters, make sure that you don't exceed this. Also crossover cables are for switch to switch connections. You must use a straight thru cable from PC to switch port

Random wrong passwords


Any router that your connecting to wireless, without a password, does not have wireless security set up on the router.

Any other wireless router that you are trying to connect to that does not allow you to connect wireless, has wireless security set up and that same security must be set up on the wireless device (like laptop or desktop, whatever is not connected via ethernet cable.).

Reply back what you find and I will be glad to help more.

Network Adapter


Hi,

Based on your post/description:.
1. “I am able to connect to a wireless network but am not able to connect to the internet.”
Indicates that your wireless network adapter is working since "able to connect to a wireless network". The "not able to connect to the internet" may be settings/configurations.
2. “When the computer tries to self diagnose, it says there may be a problem with one or more of the computer's network adapters
Which can only be your wired network adapter (Ethernet) but since you are not using that but your WiFi, should not make any difference.

To simplify, let’s focus on the Internet connection. Pls verify/determine that:
a. the wireless network is connected to a modem and can access the Internet;
b. the brand/model/version of the wireless Access Point/Router and its IP address;
c. the wireless security method being used by the network (WEP, WPA, MAC filter); and
d. the IP settings given by the DHCP server (which is also the router) to your PC which includes IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway & DNS Servers.

Pls post back results of a, b, c, & d that we can figure out the solution for your concern.

In the meantime, you can try right clicking on your networking icon (bottom right side) and click on repair.

Good luck and kind regards.

Network connection


Hi roamer, It seems you are using dial up connection at home that is through telephone line. In hotel you are using broadband or any other connection. For both pathch cables and their connectors are different. One is RJ45 other is RJ11. You can identify yourself by checking cable patching.
