Mine had a default ip address for dns server of
192.168.20.1 which was not the address of my router.
When I went into the router and changed it to that number it connected and I am happily on the internet.
I have not tried it at a public hot spot.

> excellent connectivity

This refers to the wireless connection between your computer & your router, not to the connection from your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) out through your ISP to the Internet.

If you use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the cable/DSL modem, do you still have "intermittent" problems?
If so, then your router (or other wireless devices, such as your neighbours' router, or your neighbours' wireless telephones that are trying to operate on the same broadcast frequency) is the problem.

Excellent Wireless signal but limited or no connectivity


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

If you are getting a connected and excellent signal for your wireless connection then you need to double check the IP address. If you are not connecting to your Internet Service Providers Web server then this would block you from being able to connect to the web. While you are connected to your wireless card click on start>run>type in "cmd". This will bring you to the DOS prompt. Type in c:\ to get to the root directory. Then type in "ipconfig /release, then type in ipconif /renew. This will reconnect your network to your ISP's web server. If this does not work then the problem is at the ISPs end and there is nothing you can do to correct it immediately. You need to call your Internet Service Provider and explain your problem to them. What is happening is that your router DHCP protocol is not providing you with a proper IP address and they can only fix it on their end if the ipconfig does not fix it.
