hi guest, welcome to the forum! Let me think why your laptop cannot access to internet during it's already connected to your router.

1) Because the connection is established --> Wireless is working properly
2) If you cannot access to Internet --> Access Restrictions is configured in Router.

How to configure?
1) Login to Router Administrator, you need to open a command line and use usage as ipconfig and you will see as the following

C:Documents and Settingssin.le>ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration


Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.102
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

Please open Internet Explorer with the address
http://Default Gateway ~ http://192.168.1.1

You need to know What is User name & Password to login, please configure "Access Restrictions" to allow access

I hope this is your case.

I have fixed this problem many times by entering just the gateway in the TCP/IP properties or all values as static e.g ip address, subnet mask and gateway as follows:-

Limited Connectivity | wireless network

Connect with an ethernet cable and find out the IP Address

Also note the Subnet Mask, Gateway, and Primary and Alternate DNS values

To get these :-

1. Double click on Local Area Connection under Control Panel --> "Network Connections"
2. Click "Support" --> Click "details"

Enter these values for the wireless area connection like this :-

1. Click "Start" -- > "Control Panel" --> "Network Connections"
2. Right click on "Wireless Area Connection" --> select "Properties"
3. Click on "TCP/IP" (in th middle box) -- > Click "Properties"
4. Click "To use the following ip address"
5. Enter the values you got from wired connection above
6. If you get any duplicate warning messages ignore these

This will resolve the issue, I have used it many times

Can not connect to internet


what connection you use? a dial up or broadband acces?
if u use a broadband acces (maybe from office) u need to fill in gateway and preffered dns that your office use.( u can see the number from another computer)
You can find the setting in : control panel--->Networks Connection--->Local Area Network
- Right click on Local Area Network, choose 'Properties' ----> Internet Protocols(TCP/IP)

Thanks

No default gateway


You most likley have your Local Area Connection TCP/IP settings incorrect.
In windows XP go to > Control Panel > Network Connections > RIGHT CLICK on Local Area Connection > Properties > Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Then properties > Make sure that "Obtain an IP address Automaticly" and "Obtain DNS server automatticly" are checked. Once you make the change, Reboot and you should be good to go.

Network Connection


First off, the 1394 connection is a firewire connetion. Firewire is a less popular and slower alternative to USB 2.0 connections. Disregard that in respect to your internet connection. Now in regards to your desktop internet connection.... -Go to the control panel, select network connections, then local area connection. -Right click and select properties -Under the general tab scroll down to Internet protocal (tcp/ip) Make sure the settings are set to automatically obtain an IP address. If they are and still are not working you can try to manually assign an IP address yourself. The laptops ip address might be something like 192.168.1.2 so whatever your laptop ip address is make the desktop 1 number higher in the last field (192.168.1.3 for example). Don't change any numbers other than the last field. You can find out the other information like subnet mask and default gateway by using the laptop. On the laptop go to the start menu, hit run. Then type in cmd, this will bring up a dos prompt. Then finally type IPCONFIG . Listed will be the laptops active internet connections and it's IP addresses. Copy over the subnet mask IP address and the default gateway address into the desktop and like in the previous step just manually assign the desktop a different IP address 1 number higher than the laptop. If the dns server's address isn't listed on the laptop a quick call to your dsl provider will solve that question.
