I have an older HP Pavilion desktop and everything was fine until I booted up last evening. The problem is I can't connect to the internet.


It sounds like your DNS records are jacked up, there are multiple things that could be causing this.1. click start, then click run in the box type cmd and press enter. You'll get an ms-dos box type in "ipconfig /flushdns" no quotes. close the box and try again. 2. right click your internet connection in the taskbar and click properties. click details and then click tcp/ip v4 and click properties. make sure your computer is set to automatically recieve IP address and DNS settings. then you can try and click "use the following dns server settings, use 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for the servers (these are google's dns servers)
if none of that works download and run this: http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4372&file=15&evp=4578a0d2691013178f302c260093894b

My computer can not load up the internet browser and says it doesn't have connection. But it does have connection because it shows it is connected to the internet.what should i do to fix this problem?


1. If the internet connection is working on other browser like (mozila, opera).
2. Then you need to download the new version or the same version of ie (internet explorer) to use the internet connection.
3. Go to my network place--> right click-->properties-->local area connection or which services provider you are using use that service provider icon-->right click-->properties-->use the general tab in that last option called Internet protocol (TCP/IP) then click properties. If you are using the ip address by static type the ip address, subnetmask and default gateway over there or other option is there obtain an IP address automatically.

Netgear DGN 2000 won't connect to internet by cable / wifi works


Might I suggest looking at the routers configuration. This can be done by typing in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser. Typically the default log in is: User Admin, Password is password. You want DHCP set on. Save all your settings. Then reset to factory default. There should be a reset button on the router. This will reset it to when it was new- any changes you made will be gone.

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet


Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Cheers!

Trying to hook up lap top to wireless internet. Comcast tech says there is problem with IP# 169 which preceeds other numbers and needs to be removed for hookup. How can I accomplish this? Model #3150H


Usually you will have an IP address starting with 169 if the adapter cannot get an ip address from anywhere, it is an autmoatic IP address.

What operating system (Windows XP or 2000 or Vista) are you using?
