Can connect to IP address through router, not internet

Hi I have exhausted every option I can think of to connect to the internet.... I have ipconfig release/renew uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, unplugged and replugged in the router/modem, I have an IP address it just can't get onto the internet. I can see my neighbors connections on my wireless connections, but they are secured. My other computer is connected no problem. Someone suggested I get a new wireless card and see if that solves the problem, before I do that, anything else you can think of?

    Did that... it couldn't connect to yahoo :(

  • cdc150 May 06, 2008

    Yes to both... the wireless router is fine. My computer doesn't recognize a hardline but I had never tried plugging it in to something before today, when I plug it in it says it disconnected

  • cdc150 May 06, 2008

    That I did... all was fine yesterday morning and then when I came home from work is when the problem arose

  • cdc150 May 06, 2008

    so I'm on my computer now fully connected at a free wi-fi spot... but it still doesn't work when I'm at home... now what?

Have you look at your wireless router setting on the router ?
Try pinging yahoo.com and see if you get any reply. Make sure the right gateway/ip is on your laptop.

    have you look at the config of the wireless router ?

    have you tried plugging a hard line from router to laptop ?

  • Dung Nguyen May 06, 2008

    might be stupid question but did you reboot with the hardline being plugged in? Some OS won't see the connection untill reboot.

"Windows has detected an IP address conflict"


If all looks good try right clicking on network status icon in sys tray and use repair. A more advance option would be to use ipconfig from the command prompt.


Start > Run (search in Win 7) > type ipconfig /release. Then ipconfig /renew. ipconfig ? will show you all the options. Good luck.

When I type in the IP address 192.168.2.1 and hit enter it just 'thinks' for around 2 mins then i get the IE cannot display page message up...Is there a reason why i cant get onto my routers page...


First off, make sure the management IP is indeed 192.168.2.1
to do that start > run > cmd > type "ipconfig" and press enter, the Default Gateway's IP address is the router's IP address.
second step, ping it. you should get a replay back
lastly, if you still cannot open the management page, the issue is probably with your browser, one common reason is a configured proxy server on the browser, remove it.
for Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet options > "connections" tab > press "LAN Settings" > uncheck all three checkboxes there.

I Hope this helps

Every time I run the DSL-504 ADSL2 Ethernet Router CD disc to setup my internet connection, always get the dslultility.exe message say "modam not deteched....." but everything is...


To release and renew IP address, go to Start > Run. Type in CMD and press Enter. At the prompt, type in ipconfig and press Enter. This will display the adapter information such as IP address, Subnet mask, and default gateway.

To view additional information such as Mac address, DNS servers, etc, type in ipconfig /all.

To release IP address, type ipconfig /release.

To renew IP address, type ipconfig /renew.

If you are not able to get an IP address try setting one statically:

Windows 2000

Step 1 Right-click on My Network Places and select Properties.

Step 2 Right-click on the Local Area Connection which represents your network card and select Properties.

Step 3 Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. Enter your IP information for your network.

If connecting to a router, make sure the default gateway and a DNS server is the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

Windows XP

Step 4 Click on Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network connections.

Step 5 See Step 2 for Windows 2000 and continue from there.

Aspire 5100 PC Notebook: How do i get my new Acer Laptop to connect to the ...


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.

E Machines not renewing IP Address


suspect your cable modem is looking for the MAC address of your compaq's NIC. if you run IPCONFIG /ALL on the Compaq (Start run, cmd <enter> then IPCONFIG /ALL <enter> , you can get the 12 digit MAC address.

In the router setup, there should be an option to CLONE MAC address, put in the MAC address of the COMPAQ. Then release and renew the IP address in the Router from the cable modem. The router should then get a valid IP address from the cableand you should be able to connect both systems to the router and surf.

Internet not working


Clear all your temp internet files as you may have corrupt cookies, assuming you have been able to surf before. Or run this ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.(note the gap between ipconfig and the /). If you havent, run the network sharing wizard ensure you have set your router to enable DHCP which will give your pc an automatic IP address. Also check the properties of your network card and on the TCP/IP properties ensure 'Obtain IP address automatically' is selected.
