    Even better: enter the octets "8.8.8.8", and "8.8.4.4" for the primary and secondary DNS server addresses. These two IPs are owned and hosted by Google, so there should be no filtering/blocking issues!

I have a dell optiplex gx520,it is hooked up to wireless connection and it's showing that the signal is good,but IE won't let us view webpage......


can you check if have a valild IP address?

1. Start > RUN > type in "cmd"
2. On the command prompt windows (black DOS window),
> type "ipconfig" > hit Enter
> you should have a valid IP address (something like 192.168.x.x)
• if yes, then try to ping a website
• if no, (you should see somthing like 169.254.x.x), check your wireless settings again.
**good signal doesnt mean that you are connected, it could be a conflict with wireless encryptions too..**
3. to perform PING
> on the CMD screen (back DOS based window), type "ping (space) google.com"
> you should see ping statistics, something like "packets sent=4 received=4 lost=0"
• if 0% lost > your connected to the internet
• if 100% lost > you have no connection
> again check your wireless again
4. If you can Ping and you can't still view webpages using IE here's what I suggest
• Optimize your browser
-delete temporary internet files and cookies
4a.1 Open Internet Explorer
4a.2 Click "Tools" (the icon that looks ike a cogwheel / gear; usually at the upper right corner of internet explorer)
4a.3 Click "Internet Options"
4a.3 Click "Delete" under the General Tab Screen
4a.4 Restart Internet Explorer
• Reset Internet Explorer to factory settings
4b.1 Open Internet Explorer
4b.2 Click "Tools" (the icon that looks ike a cogwheel / gear; usually at the upper right corner of internet explorer)
4b.3 Click "Internet Options"
4b.4 Click on the "Advanced" tab
4b.5 Click on "RESET"
4b.6 Restart Internet Explorer

Hopes this Helps

My wireless network connection status in connected Speed is11.0 and my signal strength is good, but I cannot connect to the internet connection godd but internet explorer cannot display the webpage


You are getting local access only.
Right click on the icon in the system tray and click repair....

If it still happens you need to connect to a different network..this usually happens if you are connecting to an unsecured network (I assume yours).

Alternative: Unplug the network adapter. Turn off the computer. Wait approx 2 minutes.
Power on computer with net adapter connected....

Can not display web pages


I suggest you a very efficient solution. Check all Internet Explorer settings of another laptop and do same settings in your this Toshiba laptop. If even then its not working then it may be hardware problem.

Open explorer

Internet issues


Hi,

In the right bottom corner of the screen you can see the Wireless icon, right click on it and select Connect to a Network.

Then a box will be opened where you can see the available routers. Select your router click on connect.

If it still shows that it is connected but Internet explorer won't display page, then once try to ping Websites.

Click on Start--Run

type ping www.google.com -t and press Enter.

You should get reply from the Website. if you won't get reply, then there is no Internet connection at all. In that case, you can try the below steps:

1. Press the Start button, then select Run..
2. type cmd in the dialog box, and press OK.
3. In the command line interface that appears, type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
4. Then, type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
5. Now type ipconfig /renew
6. Exit the command prompt.

That should resolve the issue.


If you get reply from the Website and Internet won't display page, then download and install the winsock.exe file from the following Web site:
http://www.pchell.com/downloads/WinsockXPFix.exe

This bring the connectivity to Browser.

Try that and get back to us if the issue persists.
