It is still trying to connect via your modem, go to control panel>network connection, and you will see your modem dialup connection, right click and select dissable if required.

next open up internet explorer, go to tools>internet options, then click on connections tab, then half way down select 'never dial a connection'.

Click apply>ok, then close internet explorer, open it up again and wait a few seconds and it will connect via your router(asuming that it is correctly set up).

If no page appears then click refresh a few times.

Slow web pages could be the result of dns server timeouts. Your router is probably getting the dns servers from your Internet provider. (Logging on to the router should tell you the routers dns server IP address).
The PC's could be getting their dns server IP address either from your Server or the 2700HGV router. Disconnecting your server from the network and connecting a PC to the router should test this premise.
Take your server out of equation and see if Internet access and webpages speeds up. later test your speed here ScanmySpeed.com

My lynksis router can detect the signal of the broadband connection but it cannot access the internet. when u try to browse any website it always says 'Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): The server...


This sounds like the router does not have DNS settings.

Check the web configuration to make sure that the DNS settings are valid. If there are DNS servers in there, try changing them to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and see if you still get the same problem.

Hope this helps!

Cant connect to internet after factory reset


Connect to the router's built-in web-server, and access the 'WAN Setup' page. Ensure that your ISP has handed-out an IP-address (and names of DNS-servers) to your router. Try to get it to "renew" the WAN IP-address.

Cannot connect to internet


Is the DNS server internal or on the Internet? Try setting DNS manually to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 which are free Google DNS servers and try again.

Cant connect to the internet


It means that either your computer or router is not getting a DNS address from your Internet provider. DNS is essentially the 411 service for the internet. You type in www.hotmail.com and your computer ask the router for the number, if it doesn't know it asks a computer at you internet provider and so on.

If the settin for the address for dns is missing either on your laptop or on your router it will not be able to find the address and like trying to make a phone call without a number you'll never get through.

Easiest solution is to call your internet providr and tell them that exact error message, then tell them you want to manually input their DNS server address(s) into your computer.

They will need to know what version of windows you're on then they can tell you where to go and what address to punch in.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Cant get internet connection on my ps


first check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.

try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following:
- explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address
- purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 168.126.63.1 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp

Wireless router problems


your computer is only connected to the signal coming from the router that's why it's saying connected but it seems that your router is not properly configured to provide internet access since your dns server is the same as your default gaetway. it could be that the your router is not in sync with the modem.
- if it's working before, tyr to power cycle everything by turning all the devices off then turn on the modem first, wait for all the lights on the modem to turn on then power on the router and the computer.

- if the router is for initial setup, kindly provide me you ISP, brand and model of the modem and how you connect the modem to the router and tell me if how you access the internet directly from the modem.
