The problem I had, I've fixed by adding a new network card, as the one
integrated in the motherboard was corrupt.

Most likley the network card is bad. Check if you get any lights on the network card. If there are no lights get a PCI network card for the system. If you get the link lights it could be just corruption on the system. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.

It may be the Laptop Wireless or wired adapter, reboot the laptop and the wireless device. I don't have all the info needed to supply a more percise solution.

First thing you can do is a ipconfig /release /renew on the laptop that isn't connecting.
to do that, go to:

Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt.
Once thats open, type in ipconfig /release
note, there should be a space between ipconfig and /release and renew
your ip address should come up with 0.0.0.0

Now type in ipconfig /renew
remember a space between ipconfig and /renew
You should see an ip address of 192.168.XXX.XXX or 10.10.XXX.XXX something like that, depending on your network settings.
if you do, you should be able to get on the internet.

If you see an address of 169.254.XXX.XXX
Then it would be best if you powered off the Modem and the Router.

First turn off the Router, Next the Modem.
Power back on in reverse order and see if it is able to connect then.

If all that fails, You can reset the router and see if it will connect then.
You should have a reset button on the back of the router.
Remember once the router is reset, you'll have to redo the security settings.

Hope this helps!

1. the command you are using is incorrect it is : ipconfig /release >>> then ipconfig /renew
at the DOS prompt.
2. to get to the DOS prompt you will need to type "cmd" in the search field the hit enter
this will bring you to the DOS screen.
3. unplug the Ethernet cord for 30 seconds then reconnect it
4. go into the router via a browser window / in the address locator enter 192.168.0.1 this
should bring you to the routers GUI ( graphical user interface) then from there go to the
router status page and use the "helps" to lease/ renew the IP address assigned by the
router.

Why does my computer say LAN is not connected but my ethernet cable is plugged in?


1. You possibly have lost the IP address from the ISP to your router and you will need to release/ renew the IP or you have a damaged Ethernet cord ( rare) but none the less could be damaged.
2. unplug the Ethernet cord from the connection at the wall for a few seconds and then plug it back in the wall connector.
Then try your connection. Call your ISP ( internet service Provider) and check the line to see if you have proper signal to the router.

Further instructions:
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop/desktop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Not able to connect to desktop with ethernet cord


What is the current IP address?

Can you ping the default gateway?

Did you also do:ipconfig /flushdns and
ipconfig /registerdns

Have you tried uninstalling / reinstalling the network card? (inside device manager)

Hope any of this helps.

Netgear WG602 wireless router, Connection Local only !


What I think is you unplgged them at the wrong times.

Do this:
(in this order)
  1. Turn off the router.
  2. Turn off the modem.
  3. take out all the Ethernet cords from the router, EXCEPT the one coming from the modem
  4. Now turn the modem on.
  5. Wait for the lights, then wait about another minute for it to settle.
  6. Turn on the router, make sure the Internet,Lan,Wlan,etc lights are on and functional if it doesn't display a light let me know.
  7. Now depending on what your wireless network (SSID) is called try to connect to it. Go to Start>Network>Click Network And Sharing Center at the top>on the left select Manage Wireless Networks>now click add, if your network is already on the list shown select it and click remove otherwise click "Add" click "add network in reange of this computer" select your network name and click connect.
Now tell me the errors, like if it says connection limited,etc...


Thanks,
Cam
