You posted this problem to me again

ping.com is not a program and therefore doesn't work!

use ping.exe and then put the address here
example

ping.exe www.google.com

    Here you can see that the ping.com is not there but ping.exe or ping works fine.

Cant Connect to router


make sure that the network card gains an IP address from your router
, it should be configuerd for automatic IP then try this:
use ping command to check connectivity with router let us say the ip of your router is 192.168.1.1
the from command prompt use the command : ping 192.168.1.1
the router shoud reply , if so then make sure that configuration on your router is correct and no filtering roules enabled that puts your IP or MAC address in block mode.

I have a new reformat pc from hp compaq d530. We I can't connect to the internet may be because there is no local area connection. What should I do?


first make sure that you have installed your lan driver and ethernet cable is connected from both end and there is power in your router. Now at command prompt type ipconfig and look for your ip address assinged manually or automatic.....

If you see any ip address try to ping the ip itself and then try to ping gateway..

at command prompt type
ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -t (your ip add)

similarly ping the gateway

if you get reply from ip and gateway then it should work.......do reply

I am connected to the internet and on msn but when i try to go on a web page it says internet explorer cannot display the webpage.


This could be only one of two things:

1) Your internet is OK, but the page you are trying to access
is bad

2) Your internet is not connected, but Internet Explorer is loading
MSN from an old cache on your hard drive.

If a single page is bad but you Internet is connection is OK,
then you should be able to get most other pages.
Try:
www.google.com
www.wikipedia.org
www.yahoo.com
www.ebay.com
www.microsoft.com
etc...

If, on the other hand you get nothing but MSN,
you have no internet connection !

===============================

To test it out:

Go to the DOS(like) command prompt, by clicking:

START => All Programs => Accessories => Command Prompt.

At the command prompt type: ipconfig /all

Look at the report, find the network adapter you are using
(if you have more than one, e.g. LAN and wireless)

and look for the value of the "IP Address"

This should reflect the address assigned by your Internet
provider, or the address of you personal router if you have
one:

=============================================
A typical router address = 192.168.1.1, for example
A direct connection could be = 24. 153.14.1 or any other #

BUT

if the IP address is all zeros = 0.0.0.0

then you have no connection to the Internet.
=====================================
If you have no connection (0.0.0.0) then type:

ipconfig / release
ipconfig / renew
ip config / all

If this does not fix the problem, i.e. return a non-zero
IP address,

Run the network setup wizard from the control panel to
repair your network settings.

Also reset your external router (turn it on and off)
if you are using one, and check with your IP provider
to make sure that your account is still valid.
(They will disconnect you if you owe them money
or if they have made a clerical error)

====
If you do have a non-zero IP address, but your
WEB browser still does not connect,

type at the command prompt:

1) Ping www.google.com
2) Ping 72.14.205.104

Compare the results.

If the first PING does not work, but the second one does,
then your address for the DNS (domain name server)
is not setup correctly. You can reach Google directly,
but you have a problem resolving the GOOGLE name to
its binary address, which is what a DNS does, but you
are not reaching the DNS server.

At this point you may want to contact your IP service
provider (tech support line) and he will walk you through
repairing your Internet connection, or send out a tech
in the case of a hardware problem.

Hope this helps,
please rate my answers,

Martin

Jim84 win32 application


so the ping is working as its supposed to. ping.com shouldn't even be there.

the cmd file may be missing or corrupt replaceing the file would most likely fix the problem. I can send you a copy of my cmd.exe file from my windows xp professional

was that the problem or is there something else?

Voyager A210 Laptop shows when connected to wifi "Limited or no connectivity"although others are connected on same router at the time. I have removed wifi program and reinstalled No difference


This is just a try. Find out the Default Gateway on the other computers. If they are using a static IP then you need to get on. At someone else's computer click Start and Run and enter Cmd and click OK.

Now type in ipconfig /all. Look for IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers. Write it all down. Then find an available IP address by using the Ping command.

In the same Window, type in ping and the IP Address of the computer you are at. That's just to show you what it looks like when you find an IP already taken. You'll see "reply from..." with the address you just pinged. Now ping again but change the last octal in the IP (the last number) in the IP address to something under 256. And ping again. Do this until you get a message "request timed out". You've just found an available IP.
