If you do not have a router and are connecting your modem directly to your computer you may need to call you ISP to get your DNS info to enter in your network card setting.

Click on Start and then Control Panel. Select Network Connections. Right click on the local network adaptor you are setting the IP address for. Select properties. If you do not see Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) click the install select protocol and add then Internet Protocol TCP/IP and ok. Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and properties. If you do not know the IP Address select obtain IP address automatically and OK. Click OK to close and save Local Area Network Properties. See if this works otherwise you will need to find the IP Address for your modem.

I have a emachine laptop i cant get online everything else works tried everything keeps saying im connected but my ip address is wrong tried to manually fix it but it wont take wht do i do?


Networks can be a little complicated and very picky.
Much of it depends on how the network is set up. Many will allow you to use DHCP, which means you set the device to accept whatever IP configuration that the network assigns. Some require a set IP address, subnet make, gateway and DNS numbers.

You must know the IP address for the Gateway ( which is usually the main network connection device that connects the network to the internet) and DNS, which is often the same as the gateway, and the subnet ( which will often fill in when you tab from the IP address for the device), in order to manually fill in IP configuration on your laptop.
You need to speak to the person who set up your network so you can see how your device needs to be configured.

I hope you find this information helpful and informative. If you found it helpful, please leave postivie feedback for me.

Thank You,

Brian

Wireless network connected on netbook but won't connect to internet pages. desktop computer and iTouch internet are working correctly.


your desktop and itouch are working that means the router is working.
Now on your note book check the IP address. It says connected to the network that means it should have IP address. Check the IP address, if it is a static IP address then set to using DHCP.

Need to reset IP address on Compaq Presario Prod# PJ527AA-ABA


Hi jdominey401,

In order to reset your IP address on a Windows Operating System, you will need to go to your control Panel, and click on your Network Connections. You will have an icon showing you Local Area Connection, which probably has a triangle with an ! in it. Meaning it's has a problem. Right Click on the Local Area Connection and go down to RESET. This will access your modem and give you a new IP address. If it all works fine, the triangle with the ! will disapear, and you should be back online.

Good Luck,

Mark

Router is connected to internet but other computers which show connection to the router cannot connect to the internet


Just because it is physically connected to the internet does not mean that it has a connection. The first thing you need to check is that it has an IP address. There should be a status page on the router that you can check.

Your ISP may require a specific machine name and password, or it may require the MAC address of your device, in order to get an IP address assigned to it. Call your ISP tech support for help with this.

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.
