Also, in control panel, internet options on the connections tab, make sure that use a proxy server is not checked in LAN Settings.

How do i hook up a wireless internet on a acer notebook,


Hi,

If your computer has wireless adpater then you do not need any drivers to install the wireless. The wireless router should automatically detect the network. First check if your computer is detecting any networks. To do so, click on the wireless icon on your computer taskbar nearby to system time (bottom right hand corner), if you are able to see your wireless network, if yes, select it and click connect, once connected, open IE and try to access web page. If in case you are not able to view any web page and connection remains active, I suggest you try to connect in "Safemode with Networking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture for settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the Internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Need help connecting wireless router


To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways:-

  1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
  2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:-
In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.

2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.

This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
  • IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
  • Default gateway address (very important)
  • Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
  • Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser..
Hope this will help....Cheers..:)

My laptop says that it is connected to my wireless router but the router isn't connected to the internet what should i do to connect it?


Hi,

If the router is turned ON then automatically your laptop wireless card will detect it and connect to the router.

To say in otherwords, now your notebook and Router are simple network.

You need to contact your router support to configure the router to get Internet. After automatically your notebook gets the Internet from the Router.

The above message is just by what I understood from your message.

If the issue is different, and if the router is already configured to Internet and if there are other systems connected to the router and able to access Internet, then replay back, so that I can explain accordingly

Although I finished installation of Wireless G router, I cannot start wireless internet.


go to the web based control panel of your wireless and do some necessary configuration to allow you to connect the internet. you can go there by typing 192.168.1.1, by default its password is admin and username is admin. then try to check the configuration in the wireless, if its set to mixed and set if its static or automatic? and from there you have it connected.
