What type of program are you using? check the properties or references of the programs that you are using. you may need to configure it in accordance with your home network setup. your firewall (software or router/hardware) may also be a cause. check your firewall settings and enter the port number being used by the program. make sure that the firewall allows your program to run and connect to the internet.

Hi My Lenovo G560 is behaving strangely offlate. The LAN always shows disconnected. This happens with internet at my place as well as my friends place. And when I took the laptop to Lenova service center...

That is odd.

First thing I'd do is try another ethernet cable. Then I'd try connecting to somewhere other than your house - that will tell you if it's your laptop or your home.

I have had windows update kill my wired connection after a driver update. Obvious things to check - make sure your LAN connection is set to enabled and to dhcp.

It could be that your MAC address has been blocked by your ISP, but if wireless works and your friends, not likely.

at a command prompt, and connected only via wired, type ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew and if any errors.

have you tried all your windows updates this may offer up a newer update for the wireless driver
go to computer properties/device manager
scroll down to the wireless driver
double click it and go to the driver tab
try to update the driver from there

if you can please uninstall it

if not plug in a ethernet wire from your laptop to your router to make sure you can get online

I have a used ibm t60 it says i have a internet connection but ie wont load any web pages i also cant load the driver for the dvd so i cant run the restore disc

Hi. Sorry to hear about your problem. First thing to do is to check to see if an update from microsoft has turned on proxy settings for your browser. This is a recently common thing that happens if you let windows update install any and all updates automatically. So to check this you will need to follow these instructions: 1. Open Internet Explorer. Go up to the menu bar and click on Tools, then click on Internet Options. 2. When the window opens, click on the Connections tab at the top. 3. Then click on LAN Settings at the bottom. 4. In that window, make sure that "Use a Proxy server for your LAN" is not check marked. If it has a check mark in the box next to it, click on that box to remove the check mark. 5. Click OK to close that box, then click OK to close the Internet Options box. 6. Close then reopen Internet Explorer and type into the address bar then hit enter.
If google comes up, then your issue is fixed. If not, reply here and we will troubleshoot further.

How do i hook up a westell router to a moterola comcast modem?

Okay, well something is obviously wrong.
This is how it should be connected. Internet to modem, then with an Ethernet cable, connect the modem to the router (jack1) then with another Ethernet cable, connect the router (jack2) to the computer.
If you are still having problems, then contact your company to see if they could walk you through it, or if they needed to set things up.
Also, where are you connecting your laptop from? Is it very far from the router? Perhaps your router's signal strength isn't great enough? (This would mean getting a new, more powerful router.)
