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.

Hi there, Mine is a wifi problem.. at home or at a couple of other places I've tried, my Aspire One connects no probs. At work, it constantly tries 'Acquiring Network Address', and on going...


Plug LAN cables or turn ON Wifi.
Enter Run command or type cmd.
on the command prompt screen ( black it is ) type:
ipconfig /release
enter
next type:
ipconfig /renew
enter

type exit
NOTE: if the problems still remains,which means the router use a STATIC ip eg.192.168.1.5
( CONFIG INTERNET PROTOCOL TCP/IP = ip address : 192.168.1.5 subnet mask :255.255.255.0 default gateway : 192.168.0.8 )

Netbook wont let me on the internet


First thing you can do is a ipconfig /release /renew
to do that, go to:

Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt.
Once thats open, type in ipconfig /release
note, there should be a space between ipconfig and /release and renew
your ip address should come up with 0.0.0.0

Now type in ipconfig /renew
remember a space between ipconfig and /renew
You should see an ip address of 192.168.XXX.XXX or 10.10.XXX.XXX something like that, depending on your network settings.
if you do, you should be able to get on the internet.

If you see an address of 169.254.XXX.XXX
Then it would be best if you powered off the Modem and the Router.

First turn off the Router, Next the Modem.
Power back on in reverse order and see if it is able to connect then.

If all that fails, You can reset the router and see if it will connect then.
You should have a reset button on the back of the router.
Remember once the router is reset, you'll have to redo the security settings.

Hope this helps!

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.

Internet connection problems


Troubleshooting Internet Connection Problems The purpose of this section is to give general tips
on troubleshooting your Internet Connection

While there are many possible configurations, I'll try and cover the most common ones.

Making Sure You Have Correct IP Information
Basic PING Tests
Browser Configuration

Making Sure You Have Correct IP Information 1. Make sure you have the correct IP scheme for your network. This would include the:
  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Default Gateway
  • DNS Servers
2. There are a few ways you can see what IP addresses are being assigned.
But generally for:Win9x - Start / Run / command
Windows2000/XP/Vista - Start / Run / cmd
The run IPCONFIG /ALL. A sample where a router is used is in the following graphic.
ipconfig.jpg 3. IP Address:
If you have a router, common examples would be:
192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x or 10.0.0.xIf you are directly connect to your DSL or Cable Modem, you should have an IP address that would correspond to something from your ISP.
What you don't want to have is something like 169.254.x.x. This means you are not getting and IP address assigned and needs to be resolved first.
4. Subnet Mask:
Also make sure you have the correct Subnet Mask. Most commonly this would be 255.255.255.0 5. Default Gateway:
Make sure you have the correct Default Gateway IP address.
With a router, this is typically the IP address of your router. 6. DNS Servers:
Make sure you have the correct DNS Servers. Sometimes this is the IP address of your router, so it would be the same as the Gateway IP.
Sometimes (as in this example), it is the actual DNS servers used by the ISP.
7. Possible causes for not getting an IP address assigned are:1. Defective cable, network card or port on the router. Make sure you are using all known working components.
2. Your router is not configured for DHCP (which would automatically be assigning IP addresses).
But you need to have this correct before proceeding.
Basic PING Tests 1. This and can be done from that same command prompt you used to run IPCONFIG 2. Try pinging the router's IP addresse.g. ping 192.168.1.1
If you get a reply, then your connection to the router is working.
If you don't get a reply, then you need to double check your network card, cable, port on the router. You might also see if any other computers on the network can do the same.
3. Try pinging an external site by IP address e.g. ping 4.2.2.1
If you get a reply, then you have a connection to the Internet.
If you don't get a reply, there are several things you can try:
1. Double check that the router is connecting to the Internet. Typically you can access the router through your web browser and check it's status.
2. Take the power off your DSL/Cable modem and Router. Plug the modem back in a wait a minute or so. Plug the router back in and wait a minute or so. Then restart your computer.
3. Winsock Fix - It is possible that the Winsock Registry entries have gotten corrupted. This is getting to be a more common problem. See WINSOCK FIX for clean ones you can download
4. Try pinging an external site by Namee.g. ping www.yahoo.com
If you get a reply, then you have a connection to the Internet and DNS is working
If you don't get a reply, there are several things you can try:
1. Double check your DNS entries
2. You many need to use the same DNS IP address that your ISP or Router is using.
3. On rare occasions your ISP has problems with their DNS servers. But that is rare in comparison to misconfigured computers.
If your PING tests work but you are having problems browsing sites on the Internet 1. If you could ping external sites by both IP address and Name, but cannot browse the web, likely your web browser is misconfigured. 2. Double check that you don't have an incorrect or not needed Proxy server assigned.For the Internet Explorer - Tools / Internet Options / Connections tab / LAN settings button. Uncheck both Automatically detect settings and Use a proxy server for your LAN.

Why is my computer saying no connectivity when I try to connect to the internet?


I think we need some more information to help you.

How are you connecting to the internet? Do you have a ISP issued modem/router? Do you have a personally purchased router?

Go to a command prompt (click select-Run- type cmd and press enter). Once you are at a command prompt type ipconfig /all and post that information. If your IP address starts with 169.254.. and a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 then your IP address was assigned by APIPA and not your provider/router.

If you get another IP address then here are some things to check...

ping 127.0.0.1
this is a loop back test. If you get results than you have TCP/IP protocols installed.

ping x.x.x.x (your actual IP)
if you get results back than you have a routing table or network driver issue.

ping x.x.x.x (your gateway IP address)
If you do not get a valid response then you may have issues with cabling, network adaptor, or the router or gateway device.

This should at least get you started. See ms kb 314067 for more details.

I think you might have forget to put DNS address in your network adapter setting.

Ask the Service provides for the DNS address and put it.

Your Internet should work.

Can't connect to internet


hi

check the IP settings, DNS server Settings etc any required, as well also do check if the network cable is propery conected and is working on an other system

if the router is connected to a modem then then connection from the modem is generally connected to the port named INTERNET in that case try connecting that to one of the ports numbered 1 to 4 and connect the systems to other ports
