Sweetmissysu -

There could be any number of issues causing the loss of connectivity - NIC drivers not properly installed/configured, modem/router settings incorrect, etc. I need to get more information from you...

WHen you reinstalled everything, how did you go about doing that? Did you erase/format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, or did you use a Dell recovery CD?

Also, after reinstalling, did you install the network adapter's drivers?

It would be a great help if you could send me a list of problematic system devices. To do this, on your computer:
1. Click Start.
2. Click Run.
3. In the Run dialog, type in "Control Panel" with quotes removed, and click OK.
4. In the Control Panel, open System.
5. At the top of the System Properties screen, you'll see a tab labeled Hardware. Click it.
6. Click the button labeled Device Manager.
7. You should see a list of system devices. In that list, I'll need you to write down and send me all of the devices listed under Other Devices. Also, if you see a category entitled Network Adapters, please send me the names of devices listed in that category.

You can post the list(s) in a response to this thread, and this should give me an idea of what needs to be done on your system.

How to find a IP address for my emachines laptop


go to start -- run and type in CMD
hit enter to open a black command prompt window

type in "ipconfig" without the quotes and hit enter. This will give you your IP address.

If you need the IP address from your provider that you are using out on the public internet, just go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and it will tell you what your external public IP address is.

I have a emachine laptop i cant get online everything else works tried everything keeps saying im connected but my ip address is wrong tried to manually fix it but it wont take wht do i do?


Networks can be a little complicated and very picky.
Much of it depends on how the network is set up. Many will allow you to use DHCP, which means you set the device to accept whatever IP configuration that the network assigns. Some require a set IP address, subnet make, gateway and DNS numbers.

You must know the IP address for the Gateway ( which is usually the main network connection device that connects the network to the internet) and DNS, which is often the same as the gateway, and the subnet ( which will often fill in when you tab from the IP address for the device), in order to manually fill in IP configuration on your laptop.
You need to speak to the person who set up your network so you can see how your device needs to be configured.

I hope you find this information helpful and informative. If you found it helpful, please leave postivie feedback for me.

Thank You,

Brian

Cannot get on the internet ,network adaptor is not working


First you want to make sure that you network adapter is truly not working and if not what part of it isn’t working.

First we need to check some settings. Open the start menu and then network connections, then show all connections. Some computers have been configured with out this option set, so to get to the open the “My Network Places” the on the right hand panel click “View Network Connections”. Insure that the network adapter that you use to connect to the Internet is enabled. If it is then we will move on, if not then double click the icon and it should enable the adapter (check to see if you can connect to the Internet).

Moving on, open the start menu and click the run button. In the box, type cmd.exe and hit enter. At the command prompt we will enter some commands to find out where the problem is. First type “ipconfig” and hit enter. If your IP address (the first IP address listed) is ok (anything not starting with 69) then that part is working on and we will have to move on. Next type “ping 127.0.0.1” and hit enter. This tests your operating system to see if it’s working. If you get a response then the problem isn’t your OS. If you get an error then we will need to trouble shoot that later. Now type “ping” then your IP address; this tests your network card to see if it’s working correctly. If you don’t get an error then you network card is working. The last command will test your network, type “ping” then your default gateways IP address. If you don’t get any errors then your problem might be with the network configurations in your router or you ISP.

If your IP address starts with 69 the there is something wrong with the way your computer is getting its IP address from your network. One easy way to fix that is to force it to accept a different on. In the “view my network connection” box, right click on the network adapter icon the properties. In the center box, scroll down to the internet protocol (TCP/IP) and highlight it the click the properties button. In the following box select the “use the following IP address” button. In the IP address area type “192.168.0.1” then hit tab and enter “255.255.255.0” the click ok. Now go back to the previous box and click the “obtain an IP address automatically” and click ok. Now try to connect and see what happens.

If you received an error from your ping test (127.0.0.1) then you need to reinstall the TCP/IP stack. To do that, all you need to do is highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click uninstall. Then click the install button, locate the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click install. Try to connect and see what happens.

If you received an error from your ping test (your IP address) then you can assume that your network card is bad and should buy a new Network Interface Card (NIC) at your local computer store. To install it, turn off your computer and you remove the screws (or push a button on the back of the computer depending on you computer). If you’re looking at the back panel it should be on the left side. The card should snap into place and install automatically. You should install any drivers that came with the hardware to make sure it operates properly.

If you got an error from your ping test to the “default gateway” then you network hardware is having problems. Try unplugging everything plug it back in. You need to make sure that you plug the modem in first and insure that all the lights turn green before you plug your router back in. If that doesn’t work you will need to replace your network hardware.

The last thing that it could be is your firewall. For that you may need to contact the manufacture to get proper configuration information.

If you’re still having problems, post a comment.

Good luck,
