For this try the following.
First of all, make sure that the connection you have got is internet connection or LAN connection. If its LAN connection you have to make sure that one of the networked computer should be dialled or connected.
If its internet connection, then goto Control Pannel, double click Network connections
Find out your connection from the list there.
Right click the connection and select properties
In the property dailog box, click on the Security Tab and there
in the security options click on Typical and in the 'Validate my identity as follows' combo box select 'Select unsecured password' Finally click OK and try to explore.

Also from the control pannel double click the Internet Options and in the Internet Options dialog box select 'Connections' Tab
and make sure that there appears your dial-up connection name in the Dial-up and Virtual Private Network Settings.
Make it the default connection
If its not there you will have to a Add a dial-up connection
Hope this will solve your problem

Cant get wifi on my computer got belkin54g router but cant get it working keep saying i dont have wifi on my computer


Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

Subject: Unknown computer trying to connect to a Belkin 54g and to the Internet.
Solutions: Straight Connection, Windows Connecter and Microsoft Fixit

Discussion: I'm going to provide you with three solutions and between them you should get online. However, you should be advised that in order to fully analyze and correct any difficulties you're having, we should be chatting or on a telephone connection. All I really know at this point is that you can't connect to the Internet through your Belkin 54g router.

I'm going to give you three FREE general fixes and let's hope that one of them will work for you. If not, then we have to chat.

Let's see if I can help you.

The first solution I'm suggesting works in my business (LAN installations) about 95% of the time. I trust that it will work for you.


Begin by turning on your computer and your router

? Make sure your service provider has activated your account and services on the subscribed line. Please check with your service provider to confirm this.
? Make sure that you are using the latest drivers. You can download the latest driver from Driver Downloads Database.
? Make sure that you have entered the right username and password (case-sensitive) as given by your service provider. For example, in Australia: user@bigpond; in NZ: user.name.xadsl@xtra.co.nz.
? Open Internet Explorer;
? Click on 'Tools';
? Click on 'Internet Options';
? Click on 'Connections';
? Click on 'Setup'
? Click on 'I want to set up my Internet connections manually . . .';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'I connect through a local area network (LAN);
? Clock on 'Next'
? Click on 'Next' [This is not an error];
? Click on 'No';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'To connect to the Internet immediately . . .; and,
? Click on 'Finish'.

That should have you online.

However, if the first solution doesn't get you connected, do the following:
• Click on tools again.
• Click on 'Diagnose Connection Problems'
• and follow the instructions.


The second suggested solution is to use the Setup Wizard. It seldom works for me but you might have more luck than poor me. Here are the instructions:

The Connect to the Internet wizard will guide you through the steps of setting up an Internet connection.

Open the Connect to the Internet wizard by:

• Clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button
• Click on Control Panel.
• In the search box, type network,
• Click "Network and Sharing Center"
• Click Set up a new connection or network
• Then double-click "Connect to the Internet".

The third solution requires an Internet connection. I'm going to pass on to you a FREE and hard to believe program from Microsoft called Microsoft Fixit! I have no idea why this little program hasn't been advertised but then I don't own their stock.

Just click on the following link and your problem should be solved: Download Microsoft's Fixit

You'll see the following areas in which Microsoft Fixit can solve software , hardware and just about every other problem you may incur. They are:

Top Solutions Windows Internet Explorer Windows Media Player

Entertainment Office Other


I suggest that you try top solutions before exploring the other titles.

If it works, be a hero and fix your friends' computers; just don't tell them how you did it! That will be our little secret.

All the best

if it worked before, it can be your internet connection. check and make sure you have internet connectivity, then try to delete browsing history. Click the Safety menu at upper-right portion of Internet Explorer, then click Delete Browsing History. Then close and re-open Internet Explorer and try a simple site like www.google.com to test if it works. If not, click Tools on Internet Explorer, click Internet Options. Go to its Advanced tab and click Reset button, restart your browser and test it again. Hope this would be helpful in your situation. cheers!

Have you upgraded to IE8 = internet explorer 8? When you comnnect to the internet watch your DSL modem and see if your modemis timing out when you try to connect. this means that the interent light will go out while you are trying to connect to yahoo. Other than that I don't know why it is doing it without being where you are to see it. There are a few othe things to try. Clear out your cookie folder and run your virus checker to see if it is a virus problem and last but it seems like you lost your yahoo drivers or cookies and that's why you are not getting a connection to Yahoo. Is yahoo your main connection page? if so it might be that your home page got hijacked and running a virus checker/spam checker should find it.

Yahoo Browser connects to internet, but Explorer&AVG update wont


Yahoo Connects but IE and AVG wont
1. Try opening AVG and adjusting the connection settings.
2. Go to Start/ Network connections/ Local area connection/ General tab/ Scroll down to TCP/IP/ highlight it and click properties. Make sure "obtain IP address automatically" is checked. Under the advanced setting there, DHCP should be enabled.
3. Verify setting in Internet Explorer under: Tools/Options/ Connections/ Lan Settings/ select "automatically detect settings"

You might also check your AVG program for a firewall conflict or block there.

Let me know if this helps
