Try Start Run CMD
ipconfig /flushdns ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew
if this dosent work go to Device manager and delete the network card and reboot this will cause it to reinstall the NIC card and it should pick up the router upon internet discovery phase

I have d-link router ,works fine ,my new laptop hp don't connect to interent ,see the network ,but unable to connect


Hi amany91,

There might be an issue on your wireless connection security settings. I would advice resetting your router to remove the password and to restore to factory settings. To do that, look at the back of your router and look for the RESET BUTTON. Then using a pin, press and hold the reset button for about 10 seconds. After resetting it, restart your laptop and then try connecting to your router again.

You can rate my answer if you appreciate it.
Thanks!

From I read online need to reset my belkin router. How doi reset my belkin router so I can use my laptop. The model number is F5D7234-4-BC v1


In the back of every router there is a little hole that is used to reset it. Sometimes is just colored different and some times it says reset next to it. It would be the only one. Just use a pen or paper clip and push in gently so the little rubber depressor does not break and hold it in for 30 seconds(make sure you do 30 sec on a watch nut quick counting). Router needs to be ON when doing reset. Once reset is done you might have to disconnect power to it for another 30 seconds but only if your internet is not working. Hope this helps.

Pls try this following below and just cool down and read through,

Physical causes and What to Do...
  • Network card could be faulty or malfunctioning, or the port on the card itself. Make sure lights show on the card and if they don't, replace with another one that works.
  • Check that your router or the server is turned on so that the laptop can acquire a valid IP address.
  • Double check to make sure the wireless card on the laptop is turned on. Do not assume it is on by default, do it yourself.

Logical or Software causes and solutions

Many of us are online buyers. Items sold on the internet, especially used items, are not in their default settings. Previous owners do not always reset them before sale, and this causes a lot of issues and unwanted beheaviours. Below are some of the common settings found on Routers:
  • ISP user name and password. If you want to connect to the internet check with your ISP to get your own User name and password, if not ignore this step.
  • Looking at the security options, make sure:
    • MAC address Filtering is not enable. If it is, remove all the MAC addresses on the MAC address table, and enter your Laptop's network card MAC address. With MAC Filtering On, do not forget to enter the MAC addresses of all you wireless devices on to its table.
    • Wireless key settings. Disable the wireless key settings and configure it to meet your requirements.



  • A Laptop to Laptop connection, please make sure the wireless settings on both laptops are the same.
  • Inconsistent wireless Keys. The key on the laptop has to match the one configured on the router.
  • Drivers out of date, update your wireless adapter drivers or your router firmware by checking the manufacturer web site.
  • Wireless not enable on the router. If wireless is not enable on the router, there is no Wi-Fi signal at all. some Router would have wireless turned off by default, and it is the administrator decision to use it or not.
  • DHCP Server misconfiguration. Make sure the DHCP (Dynamic Hosts Configuration) server is properly configured:
    • Enough IP address lease for your network devices
    • The server itself is not down

  • Some simple troubleshooting methods are:
    • Repair the connection. On Windows, click start - Control panel and then Network connections; chose the right connection icon, right then select repair. Windows will, temporarily, disable and re-enable your network adapter to attempt a connection.
    • Reset the IP stack. Click start then Run. At the command prompt type "command" or cmd for short, you are then presented with the command prompt window. Type "netsh int ip reset resetlog", and then restart your Laptop. This applies to desktop computers as well.
    • Reset the router to its factory default. Most routers we use at home are fitted with a reset button, by pressing and hold it for few seconds will bring the router to its factory default. This method solves a lot of the issues mentioned earlier, in one go.

    from another computer, go to the routers configuration screen and make sure the status shows that it is connected to the internet. Also the routers internal LanIP address must be 192.168.1.1 for the netbook to work.

    Need network key for wireless network connection


    This is your password on the router. Do you know it? Are other computers on this router? If not you can hold the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds and it will reset to factory default. No network key needed, then log in to your router and set a new network key.

    Desktop works (direct to router), laptops cannot connect


    first of all make sure that the wireless settings of the router match the settings of your wireless computer.

    make sure also that there are no friewall or security programs running in your computer because they can interfere with the wireless connection as well.

    Changed router settings and now unable to access the network and internet


    Just reset the router (there should be a reset button somewhere on it) it will default to open system. Then go back in and select WEP with 64 or 128 bit security. Generate your KEY and next time it connects enter the KEY. You should be set to go!
