Question about Computers & Internet

My wireless internet works in my hometown, but I go to college 2 hours away and plugged my Ethernet cord in. Everything says its connected, but the internet page will not load. I tried 2 of my friend's laptops and their internet works. I cannot get my internet to work. I think something is blocked because it works in my hometown 2 hours away. What can I do to fix this problem so I can get internet again?

    about 200 miles away. It's worker before when I went to school there last year. The router is in my apartment. Everything says it's connected but the page is not coming up.

  • trhfoxy Sep 01, 2008

    I never installed anything for the Ethernet cord. I've always just plugged it in and it used to work.

  • trhfoxy Sep 01, 2008

    I don't know what needs to be installed for the cord. I never had to install anything nor has my friends fro their laptops.

    YOUR PAGE WILL NOT LOAD ( this is because it is save the page from the last time you were on the Internet) it makes no difference if you are not hooked up to the NET it will always diplay this by DEFAULT. If you followed my insructions and this did not help I need to know what is the program that you use to connect on you WIRELESS.. I know that you are trying to connect with the cable.
    There is nothing to install! You just have to configure the settings>

Try doing a system restore. You may have to go back a few restore points, but I think a restore may fix it.

Check your device manager and make sure there is nothing with an exclamation point. So are you using a wireless internet card or are you using a wired ethernet? Can you locate any networks. If not you should be able to ask the administration what the SSID is for the network so you can log onto it with the wireless adapter.
Thanks,
Lee

First check if you have a valid IP address. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > Right-click Local Area Connections > Properties > Look for Internet Protocol TCP/IP > Properties

Select Obtain IP Address Automatically
and Select Obtain DNS Server Addresses Automatically

Click OK all the way out, then check if you're able to go online

    If you are connecting wirelessly, make sure the wireless connection has a valid IP address like 192.168.xx.xx or something like that. If the IP address starts with 169.254.xx.xx, that is an invalid IP address. You need to reconnect to the existing wireless network.

    Do the following steps:

    At the bottom right hand of your screen by the system clock,

    >Right-Click on the Wireless Network Connection icon > View Available Wireless Networks
    >Click on Change Advance Settings
    >Click on Wireless Networks tab
    >Remove all the listed names on the Preferred Networks box at the bottom. Click OK
    Then
    >Right-Click on the Wireless Network Connection icon > View Available Wireless Networks
    >Highlight your network on the listed available networks and Connect. When it asks for a network key type in the password for the wireless network, confirm it on the Confirm Network Key box and hit Connect.

    If it successfully connects, that's it. You can try to go online.

Uninstall your Ethernet adaptor. then re install the device.

If you have not entered your computer into their system (mac filtering),
you may have to go to the network administrator.
contact them and tell them that you need to have your computer allowed into the network.

Hey how ya doin, first of all is your wireless Satelite or Tower and secondly hours is irrelevant, distance in Miles or Kilometers or Metres is a factor, (2 HOURS by plane, car Train etc could put you anywhere from 200 to 2000miles away)need to be more specific. Definately contact your wireless provider or read your documentation on your providers coverage.

    Ronald Mueller Aug 30, 2008

    click on your net work connection. then find the availiable one that you have permission to use, meaning it's an unsecure access. if you only have secure networks availiable in the area you need a pass code in order to use that network.

  • Ronald Mueller
    Ronald Mueller Sep 01, 2008

    if it is secure network in that area you have to have a key code to gain access. if it's not then go to your network connections tab click it, then click advance tab, check your proxy settings, they should match your friends. then go back to network connections and click the repair tab this should renew your IP address and allow access. please rate this

Having problems with 2wire router that keeps dropping the internet. All light are on except ethernet, does this mean the router is no good. Recently replaced the power cord which helped for awhile.


how do you connect to your router? If there's no ethernet cable plug in on the router, the Ethernet light on your router is suppose to be off. Also try to move your router 2-3 ft. away from any electrical devices like wireless phone, printer etc. because of electromagnetic interference. It may help your wireless connection to be stable and faster.

How to connect to the internet


You should have a home modem from and ISP (Internet Service Provider) Also If you have a router you need to plug the Ethernet Cord (the cord that looks like a Giant phone line) into the internet port of the router, Now if the router is a wireless router and you want to use the internet wirelessly you need to open your wireless connections and you will see your router in the list. Simply double click the connection and it will automatically connect for you. If you do not have a wireless router and you want to connect more than one computer to the internet,Simply keep the ethernet cord plugged into the internet port on the router and you should have 4 other ports next to each other. Plug another ethernet cord into port 1 and plug into the back or side of computer. That's it. I hope this helped have a good day

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.
