My laptop is connected to an internet connection but is doesn't connect to any websites?. and it says 'the internet connection was reset'.. what should i do?


Hello,

Try using a different browser on your laptop. If you are able to view sites using a different browser then you have narrowed the problem down to that browser.

If not, then try resetting your network devices. Turn off the modem and router and laptop. After 10 seconds, plug in the modem then after 30 seconds plug in the router then after another 30 seconds turn on the laptop. Are you still having trouble?

If so, try checking your internet browser settings. Make sure cookies is enabled and no sites are being blocked. You could also try lowering your security settings in the browser.

If you are still having trouble, try disabling any firewalls and anti virus programs you have running.

Double check you are actually able to communicate past your gateway by pinging some websites from DOS. If you are running windows go to Start and type CMD or Command in the run box. When the DOS window opens, do C:\ping www.google.com or try www.msn.com or www.fixya.com. If you get replies back then you know packets are reaching outside your local network.

Regards,

Dell pc wont pick up internet


There are wide issues that may occur, with a issue with "dell pc wont pick up internet" is very general, so please be specific, however i went over most issue step by step, hope this help
Make sure you have the correct IP scheme for your network. This would include the:
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS Servers
Click on start, run, type in cmd, The run IPCONFIG /ALL. A sample where a router is used is in the following graphic.
IP Address:
If you have a router, common examples would be:
192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x or 10.0.0.x
If 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.
Subnet Mask:
Also make sure you have the correct Subnet Mask. Most commonly this would be 255.255.255.0
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.
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).
This and can be done from that same command prompt you used to run IPCONFIG
2. Try pinging the router's IP address
e.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 Name
e.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.

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.

Wep key problems


Plug a computer directly into the router (with an ethernet cable). Then in your browser, go to 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. You should be able to log into the router from there and adjust the wireless settings.

Hopefully you know the router password...Otherwise you will have to reset the router, in which case, there is usually a small recessed button somewhere on it, that you can hold down for 30sec to reset the router settings to factory defaults.

Zyxel220 can't be reaced via webbrowser


Here few things that you could try:

1. Try to check if there is a proxy server configured in your web browser. Tools>>Internet Options>>Connections>>LAN settings..>>make sure nothing is checked.

2. Disable anti-virus and firewall temporarily and check if you can access it using your web browser.

3. Possible that the IP address of your zyxel has a conflict with another device in the network (i.e. router,switch, etc)

4. You could also use firefox as an alternate browser.

Hope this helps.

Configuration not accesible


Hi There.

You may try to ping the IP Address of your router just to check if it is responding to pings. If you still can, check if there is proxy settings enabled on your browser, you may try to disable it by going to Internet options> connections> LAN settings.

Or try to use another browser to access your router. Lastly, sometimes, it does really work when you do it via RUN command on the computer.

Hope this works

Unstable PS3 connection


good idea to assign your own ip but no need to use dmz...

do the following:

1. reset your router to factory settings, assign urself an ip address (make sure its out of the scope of the dhcp), no need for dmz
2. enable upnp (thats what ps3 uses)
open these specific ports if u are using firewalls
TCP:
  • 80
  • 443
  • 5223
UDP:
  • 3478
  • 3479
  • 3658 should also be opened for voice chat.
also if u want to make it faster use Port forwarding and then forward the above port to your static ps3 ip address and u will get even lower pings to play games and no lag

cheers
