Question about PC Desktops
Try power cycling the modem and router first. Unplug them for about 60 seconds. Plug in the modem. When all the lights come on except the activity light, plug in the router, give it ten seconds and try your pc. If not try this.On the wireless pc, there should be a icon on the taskbar that shows your signal strength if you hold your pointer over it. Right click on that and click on show available networks. If yours shows, click on that and click on connect. If that doesn't help, go to your command prompy. Start , run and then type cmd and click ok. Then type ipconfig /release. There's a space between the g and the slash. Then type ipconfig /renew. Then close the box and try your internet. You may have to go back and do the first step after doing this. If this still doesn't work, go start>my network places>view network connections. Right click on local area connection and click on repair. Try it now. If still no luck, go back to start>my network places>view network connections>right click on local area connection>click on properties. Click on Internet protocal (tcp/ip) and click on properties. Make sure Obtain IP address automatically is selected and obtain DNS Server address automatically is selected. If they are click cancel. If not, select them and click ok. Then close. Try again. If this has solved your problem please rate as fixed. If, please don't rate yet. Just add a comment and let me know what happened and I'll be happy to help you further. Thanks.
