1394 LAN connection - no IP address

Hi . I just reinstalled windows XP home edition on to my Dell Dimension 8300 Desktop. The system was grinding to a halt. but its great now apart from the fact I can no longer connect to the internet. I have a Virgin Cable Broadband connection which works fine on my laptop (with Belkin wireless in the middle).

When I look at the 1394 LAN connection it shows no IP address. When I try to repair it, it comes back with 'Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot proceed'.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Desktop will not conntect to internet, but it says connected. My laptop works with the wireless network connection just fine, however, we cannot get the desktop to work. any suggestions? i have been on...


You didn't mention if your desktop is connected hardwired or wireless. Let's assume your desktop is connected hardwired via ethernet cable and your PC is saying that your are connected, then you need to check 2 things. First, TCP/IP settings, go to the network connections page of your PC and look for Local Area Connection. You need to right click on Local Area Connection and click on Properties. Then on the next page, look for Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) or Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) for Win Vista and Win 7 OS. You need to click on it to highlight it then click on Properties. On the next page, make sure that "Obtain an IP address automatically" and Obtain DNS Server address automatically" are both selected. Sorry if cannot give you a detailed walkthrough because you didn't mention the Operating System of your PC. Second, check Proxy Settings, open up Internet Explorer and click on Tools on the upper portion then click on Internet Options. On Internet Options page, click on the Connections Tab then click on the button for LAN settings. On the next page, make sure that the "Use Proxy Server for your LAN" is unchecked.

How do I find out my Hughes HN 9000 modem ip address?


http://www.viasatelital.com/manuales/Instalacion-HN9000.pdf

Accessing the System Control Center
To open the System Control Center on a web browser installed on a computer that is connected to the satellite modem,
double-click the System Control Center shortcut on your computer desktop, or follow these steps:
1. Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape.
2. In the browser address bar, type www.systemcontrolcenter.com or 192.168.0.1 and press Enter.
Note: To use 192.168.0.1, the satellite modem must be configured for a private address, and DHCP must be
enabled on the computer.
The System Control Center home page appears as shown in Figure 8: System Control Center home page on page
9.
If you are unable to access the System Control Center, refer to Cannot Access the System Control Center on page
34.
Creating a shortcut to the System Control Center
You can create a Windows shortcut on your computer desktop for easy access to the System Control Center home page.
Note: As part of the installation process, the person who installed your satellite modem creates a shortcut to the
System Control Center, so there should already be a shortcut on your desktop—unless it has been deleted.
1. Open a web browser.
Note: The method described here works for Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator. It may work with other
browsers.
2. Type www.systemcontrolcenter.com or 192.168.0.1 in the browser address bar and press Enter.
Note: To use 192.168.0.1, the satellite modem must be configured for a private IP address, and DHCP must
be enabled on the computer.
The System Control Center home page appears.
3. Drag the icon that appears in front of the address displayed in the browser to the computer desktop.

I was using bsnl provided nokia modem. i had to reload windows xp since my pc was not working.but now i am not able to connect to net. ''error 169. desitnation not reacheable''. plez solve this


r u using lan connection or usb..need to know..??
assuming that u r using lan connection, u know the primary n secondary dns provided by bsnl (if so), & hv knowledge abt PPPoE connection..if not u gotta clarify more....!!

however, see if ur lan settings are ok n there is no conflict..open Control Panel->Network Connection->right click on Local Area Connection->click Properties->choose Internet Protocol TCP/IP from item menu->click on the Properties submit button therein->manually configure it by clicking on the radio button as 'Use the following IP address'->IP Address:192.168.1.2; Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0; Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1->put the DNS if u hv->nw press OK->OK..
make a through system scan with ur licensed, 'updated' antivirus (i prefer AVG/Kaspersy) and Microsoft Malicious Software removal Tool..
..always better to hv ur System Admin/Vendors supervision....

IP Address


Your ADSL port IP address will be set by your ISP and will be displayed on router status page. Your LAN port IP address is likely to be http://192.168.1.254

Wireless connection 2 says its not connected


Yep. Plug the ethernet cable into the computer. Reset the modem AFTER you plug in the ethernet cable. If it still cannot come online then go to your control panel, network connections (xp) and right click on Local Area Connection (LAN). Go to properties, then Internet Protocol, highlight and click on properties below that. It should be obtaining an IP and DNS automatically unless you know you have a static IP (most dont). Close those two windows and right click on the LAN again. Disable. right click again and enable. It should do it. Vista... Control Panel, network and sharing center, manage network connection, then do the LAN the same way you do in XP

I just reinstalled windows xp on my other computer and I can't get on the internet now. I downloaded my modem's driver onto a flashdrive, but I'm not sure how to install and set it up


Hi,
You should install your LAN driver. Once you reinstall xp it does not automatically install LAN driver since this is a motherboard issue. The LAN driver is located on your motherboards set-up cd or on your recovery discs. If not available, the LAN driver can be downloaded from your manufacturers website...DELL, HP...etc, or if it's a homemade system then your motherboard's mfg website.

(LAN driver sometimes called ethernet driver)

Is the laptop an xp machine? If so:

In order to access shared files on a Windows XP computer (or any computer running Samba) from a Mac, the Mac will need to "connect" to the Windows XP computer and "mount" the shared files.

Instructions:

Start at the "Go" drop down menu at the top of your screen, then "Connect to server".
If the computer you wish to connect to is listed, just select it from the list.
If the computer is not listed, type into the "Server Address" field 'smb://' followed by the computer name or IP address of the computer to which you want to connect.
Click the "Connect" button in the bottom right corner of the window. See more at the link below:

Router


Hi,

The setup page for a LinkSys Router is normally accessed using a browser addressed to 192.168.1.1. If for some reason "Page can not be displayed or Connection has timed out" shows up, perhaps the reason is that the PC is not on the same network as that of the router.

A couple of things you can try:
1. Run the PC to the router using LAN cable and not WiFi;
2. In your Network Connections (Control Panel), right click on your Local Area Connection, click on Properties, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on the Properties button.
3. In the next pop-up window, tick "Use the following IP address". IP address - 192.168.1.2, Subnet mask - 255.255.255.0 and Default gateway - 192.168.1.1, OK, OK.
4. Make sure to check "Show icon notification..."
5. In the Networking icon in the System Tray, right click and click on Repair.
6. Try your browser now on 192.168.1.1.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, possibilities are:
i. your PC's LAN card is at fault (hardware or drivers);
ii. the LAN cable would require replacement;
iii. the LinkSys router is at fault.

A sure way to verify network connectivity between router and LAN card/PC is when properly connected, the router's led display for that particular Ethernet port will light up and/or blink.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
