Initially check whether the ip address is assigned in the computer in which internet is not browsing using the command ipconfig/all for windows and ifconfig for linux.If ip is present try to ping the default gateway ip address,if ping is success there is no issue in the cable you used and also with ip address.If ip is not assigned assign ip by manually or by using dhcp of router.Enable and disable the lan card in the router so that sometimes the problem get resolved.After ip is assigned and ping with router is ok .Ensure dns servers are correct else give google public dns server 8.8.8.8.Then try to ping www.google.com in command prompt if ping is success then you can browse.

Tip on speeding up your Internet connection.


I have high speed and my Internet was sluggish at best for months. I tried everything including the following Resetting my cable modem, replacing my cable modem with a newer model. Resetting my Wi-Fi router, replacing my Wi-Fi router. Reinstalling my operating system. Updating my network drivers. Scanning for Malwere and viruses daily. I tried different browers including Firefox, Chrome and others. I updated Internet Explorer with all the latest patches.

I have determine that the DNS server was the issue. The DNS server is a translator, it allows us to just type in the website name like www.microsoft.com instead of remembering numbers like 216.239.51.99. I fix mine by using Open DNS instead of my internet provider DNS Server.

Here is how to fix it. Go to control panel, then click on your local area connection icon. Click on properties and then double click on TCP/IP Internet Protocol. Leave the top settings alone, which will still obtain the IP address automatically. Type in the Open DNS Preferred DNS server settings of 24.25.5.60. Type in the Open DNS Alternate DNS server settings of 24.25.5.61. Reboot your PC and enjoy the speed.

Tip

Why can't you connect to the Internet?


First check your TCP/IP address - see my earlier tip on checking you are connected to a network. For most recent systems, (not Linux) open a command prompt window (type "cmd" in the RUN window from the start menu) and type ipconfig /all
you should see your network adapter name and IP address, a subnet mask (don't worry) and a default gateway, also a DNS server IP address. If ANY of these are missing, that's your problem, try repairing or resetting the network adapter. WRITE THEM DOWN. You may have more than one adapter, you need to identify which one is used for the Internet connection.
If they are all there, from the SAME window type "ping" followed by the IP address of your default gateway. If this fails, you have no connection to your internet router, find out why!
If this succeeds, type "ping" again, followed by the IP address of your DNS server. If this fails, type "tracert" and then the IP address of your DNS server. The FIRST address that will be reported is your default gateway; followed by your ISP address; if the only address you see is your default gateway, the link to your ISP  is down, give them  a call. If it succeeds, from the same window type "nslookup"
You will see a chevron prompt, type in the name of the site you want to go to, e.g google.com.
You should then see a reply from your DNS server, and an IP address for your required server. If not, then either your DNS server settings are wrong OR the server does not exist. It will be obvious which it is from the reply you receive. If the DNS settings are wrong, you can change them from the Control Panel, Network, Network adapter, Properties, TCP/IP v4 properties menu; try setting DNS server to 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4 and try again.

I CAN GET THE INTERNET EXPLORER TO WORK WITH MY MODEM.... SOMEHOW I THINK THE IP AND DNS ADDRESS IS WRONG... IT KEEP SAYING CHECK THE DOMAIN SERVER.... WHAT IS THE CORRECT IP AND DNS AND SUBMASK...


Hi, Go under network connection Right click on wireless Network connection or LAN connection (depens on what you're using to connect to the modem, a cable or through a wireless connection) and then properties. Scroll down until you see TCP/IP and double click on it. Make sure that it's set to obtain an address automatically and to obtain a DNS server address automatically. If you are using a router, do the same, but in this case you can set a static address. The subnet mask is 255.255.265.0 and the DNS address has usually the same address of your router.
Bye

I set up my linksys wireless router this morning on my desk top which has high speed or DSL and I like to have it on my laptop also. I need instructions on how to ave it on both computers,


If your laptop has a wireless card built in - or external, you will be able to get the wireless signal.  You need to open your wireless dialog - Start > My Network Places > View Network Places

Check if the IP address of your machine is within the network as assigned by the DHCP server of your modem/router. You might need to reconfigure your network settings to "automatically obtain IP address" and "...DNS". You can verify this by opening a command prompt and type "ipconfig /all"

My laptop has problem getting access to either my webside provider or explorer through my BELKIN ADSL MODEM with wireless G router


Sometimes routers lock up. Try shutting down the router (unplug if there is no on/off), wait 30sec, then turn back on. See if that doesn't help.

Next try changing your DNS settings to something other then the ISP's settings. To change you need to get to the network properties, and change the TCP/IP settings. Best way is to click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL. NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Right click on LOCAL AREA NETWORK (if you are physically connected), and go to properties.

Once there, scroll down to INTERNET PROTOCAL (TCP/IP), highlight it, and click on PROPERTIES.

Here is where you can enter new DNS settings. I use 206.13.29.12, and 206.13.30.12 respectively. You can do a search for DNS servers on the internet and put one in there to see if it solves your issue.

Just a NOTE: Recently ISP's have been updating their systems and DNS servers due to a flaw in the DNS design which is world wide. If your issue of reaching some sites fails and is recent, it could be due to this update process.

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
