You should first try to reinstall the router by connecting it with your computer, using the software CD that came with the router. Follow the instructions. If it does not work then check the IP address from your internet service provider. The IP address and proxy settings should be fed in your computer.

I have a 2wire router from AT&T and I cannot access the internet using my laptop. I am able to connect wirelessly but only locally. I recently added an adapter for my Direct TV to access movies on the...


I've never had any restrictions, I have an internal router, and several computers and devices access the internet through my AT&T account both wired and wireless. I don't know anything that would prohibit you using a machine to connect to the internet through one of their routers, and the fact that it can connect locally, if by locally, you mean you can access other devices connected to the router, then as a network analyst, computer guru, the only thing that I can think that 'might' interfere is your IP address on your computer; but, that would restrict the other devices from connecting to the internet too, or the laptop but not both. But, to me it sounds odd that you have such an issue, it has to be the way the network is configured on your laptop. If you know, you can check this through the DOS or Power Shell on your laptop. I presume it's windows, at the prompt, if windows, just type
ipconfig /all <return> = C:\ipconfig<sp>/all<return>
to check your network card IP and mask settings for all devices that could connect to the internet. Perhaps your laptop is IPv4 and the AT&T is set to IPv6 only, something like that.

M300 toshiba connecting to locally, not connect to internet


Dear Shifsa,

Considering the fact that you are trying to connect to a wifi connection which of course is unsecured,
here are some workarounds..

1. Uninstall the wireless card driver.
Go to device manager > click on the + sign beside network adapters > right click on the wireless adapter and select uninstall. Restart the computer it should get reinstalled automatically.

2. try disabling or uninstalling the antivirus or internet security software. you can later on again download the a free software from www.hippo.com

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Anup

Problem's with built in wireless card


A friend of mine had a similar problem for whole 6 months until i uninstalled Norton. So if you use Norton Antivirus use this tool to remove it:

Can't connect to internet with built in wireless


Do you have Windows XP, and did you install Service Pack 3? If so, you may need to go to the wireless card's manufacturer's site and download an updated driver (or if not available, reinstall the original driver). SP3 puts in a file that is incompatible with many wireless cards.

This would most likely happen if your router is not configured to connect to the modem correctly. You said that you can connect to the router locally that means there is already a connection. The problem would be the routers configuration to the internet.

My router will not connect to the internet


The laptop may not have the correct wireless settings same as the router.

What is the Operating system of your laptop and does it have a builtin card?
