First, try uninstalling the wireless drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the wireless and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this is a driver glitch, this will clear it. If it still doesn't work, then take the laptop somewhere that has free wifi, if you can connect through their service, then the problem is with your internet provider. If you still cannot connect, then it may be a failed wireless card, or a dirty or corroded card slot or antennae lead. Try these, get back to me with the results, and we'll go from there.

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

This is worked for me on Vista:
1. Goto Network and Sharing Center.
2. Click on your Wireless Connection "View Status".
3. Click on Propertes.
4. Uncheck the option that says "Internet Protocol Version 6"

When I did this, my wireless began working again.

I can't get internet connection even though it says my connection strength is "excellent."


The netbook is working fine. The WiFi connection or SPID may require you to login as in it is a protected signal. The "Excellent" means that you are receiving an excellent signal from the router. What you want is internet access which is upstream of that. Try a different SPID or connection.

What sort of modem/router are you using. I had a problem with a DLink which required an updated bios to stop it from turning off the wireless connection even though all the settings said it was to be always on.
