Connection show as good but internet wont come up


Could be a multitude of things, I would check your proxies first.
Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.

You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.

One other possability: When you say you can connect to the LAN or wireless connection fine, I must assume you are using a router with wireless capabilities.

Just becuase you can establish a connection to your router, does not mean that router has a gateway to the internet. The router is simply used to create a network for file, printer, and internet sharing. It is totally possible to use the router strictly for networking purposes and not for internet sharing.

That being said, I would ensure the cable/dsl modem is securely connected to the router. Also try power cycling both devices. Check the lights on the modem, typically they give a status. Mine has a POWER, ETHERNET, DSL, INTERNET, and ACTIVITY light. Green typically means status is functional, red means it is not.

When my ISP is down, the DSL light will be flashing red. It is time to call your ISPs tech support if that is the case. Check all your connections to be secure and power cycle everything first, your ISP will ask you to do this as soon as you call them, and it does resolve alot of problems quickly.

There is always the possibility of them having an outage.

General rule is always check the physical layer first, which is cabling and hardware. Make sure it's on and plugged in. Then try rebooting it all.


Hope this helps.

How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif
  1. Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
  2. On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
  3. Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
  4. In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"97ac799.jpg
  5. In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
  6. Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
  7. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
  12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
  13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
  14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
  15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
  16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
  17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
  18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
  19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server.

Have a great wireless signal but cantgetonthe internet. It says " page cannot be displayed, cannot find server or DNS error Internet Explorer"


I suggest doing a power cycle of your modem and router.
Unplug your modem and router.
Then plug your modem back in and wait for it to boot up.
Plug your router back in and then you should have a proper wireless connection for your netbook.

Whenever i pull up internet explorer it says 'internet explorer cannot display the webpage", my computer says i have excellent connection to my wireless router but my internet is not working


In Internet Explorer, click on 'tools' then 'internet options' then 'connections' then 'LAN settings'. If there is anything checked that has to do with a proxy server, uncheck it and make sure that 'automatically detect settings' is checked. Click 'apply'. Exit out of Internet Explorer. Reopen Internet Explorer and see if it pulls up like normal.

I have a broadband internet connection at home which had a modem and only one LAN cable. Now I have 2 laptop's one with Microsoft XP and other MS-Vista. Whenever I try to connect internet the one with XP...


if you had say one desktop and one laptop I would say to buy another LAN card for the desktop and enable internet connection sharing on it for the other computer but with two laptops that might not be possible and you will need a router.
But routers are pretty cheap nowadays and you can probably find a basic 4 port router on eBay for around $20 (you don’t really need to spend the extra money on a wireless one unless of course both laptops have wireless connections then you might find that a wireless router to be pretty useful.)
But to answer your question YES you need a router since a router will take your IP address and split it up into multiple internal IP addresses and allow more that one connection to the internet that will appear as one connection to your ISP

Wireless internet connection


Hi, A couple of things you should check: 1. Has the "wireless internet user" enabled his Internet Sharing? If yes, how has is this user sharing it with you, through an AP/Router? 2. If he is using an AP/Router, are there any security settings enabled such as WEP, WPA, or MAC Filter? If yes, you have to get the security key and enter it into your configuration. 3. Is the DHCP Server in the AP/Router enabled? 4. If yes to #3, have you made your networking "Obtain an IP Address Automatically? 5. If no, you have to get/set the allowed IP address that you can use, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers; 6. Can you ping the AP/Router or at least the "wireless internet" user IP Address. To ping, Start, Run, type "cmd", type "ping IP add of wireless internet user and/or AP/Router; 7. In your browser, enable Auto detect proxy settings for this connection; Pls post back with: a. How do you connect, a wifi card/USB or built-in? b. What AP/Router are you connecting to? c. What browser are you using, IE, Mozilla, Opera? Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
