Question about Computers & Internet
I cannot browse the web if i set the TCP/IP to obtain IP address automatically or use the default IP of the router.
When i used the IP/subnet mask and the default gateway provided by my ISP and connect the ADSL modem cable to the WAN port of the router still i cannot browse the web, however if i connect the ADSL cable modem to the LAN port of the router i can browse the web...

Let's start with Internet Options. If you have Windows XP
Click Start/Control Panel/Internet Options. If you have Windows Vista or
Windows 7 click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Internet Options.
When the Internet Options window opens on the General Tab make sure you have a valid web address as the Home Page. If not, create a simple Home Page by typing: http://www.google.com You don't have to click OK now because if you do the Internet Options window will close.
Click the Security Tab and under where it says "select a zone to view or change settings" Click on the one that says Internet, then scroll down to near the bottom right and make sure that DEFAULT is grayed out (whereas you cannot click on it). You can Click on Default just to be sure. Next click the Intranet so that it is highlighted and make sure DEFAULT is grayed out so that you cannot click on it. Do the same thing for the other two zones (Trusted Sites and Restricted Sites). After all zones under the Security Tab are set to Default click the next Tab which is the Privacy tab.
On the Privacy Tab you want to make sure that DEFAULT is grayed out, if not click on it. When in doubt just click the Default tab.
Next skip over the Content tab and proceed to click the Connections Tab. On the Connections Tab make sure that the Never Dial A Connection is checked if you have something in the white box above it in for Dialup and Virtual Private Networks settings. Look down on the right near the bottom and Click the LAN SETTINGS button. When Lan Settings open up the only box that should be checked is the very first box that says: Automatically Detect Settings. If any other box is checked remove the check from it or you will never be able to connect. Click OK to close the LAN SETTINGS tab.
Next skip over the Programs tab and click the Advanced tab. When it opens slide the blue bar on the right all the way down until you get to the bottom of the window. You want to be able to make sure that if you see something like (Use SSL 2.0, Use SSL 3.0, Use TSL 1.0) that you put a check in the box to the left of each one of them. Afterwards you can click OK to close the Internet Options Window.
Check your Network Settings for TCP/IP (you might have TCP/IPv4 and TCPIP/V6 if so check both of them).
For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window open click the Networking tab. Find the Protocol (TCP/IP) in the drop down window that says "This Connection Uses The Following Items" and Double Click on it to open it. You should make sure that you select Obtain IP Address Automatically and Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically. Click OK.
For Windows Vista below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left of the open window and click Manage Network Connections. Right Click on the Wireless Network then select Properties. Find the Protocol (TCP/IPv4, TCP/IPv6) in the drop down window that says "This Connection Uses The Following Items" and Double Click on it to open it. You should make sure that you select Obtain IP Address Automatically and Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically. Click OK.
For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left and select Manage Network Connections. Right Click on the Wireless Network then select Properties. Find the Protocol (TCP/IPv4, TCP/IPv6) in the drop down window that says "This Connection Uses The Following Items" and Double Click on it to open it. You should make sure that you select Obtain IP Address Automatically and Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically. Click OK.
