Trouble connecting new laptop to the internet

Hi, i have a wireless network set up at home using a belkin 54g router. At the moment i have two desktop pc's which i can connect to the internet with. However i have just bought a new laptop which is wireless enabled and am having trouble with connecting to the internet. It detects my wireless network and says its connected with excellent signal strength but when i open the internet it says "cannot display webpage as you are not connected to the internet". Can anyone help me out as i'm a bit of an idiot when it comes to things like this. the laptop is using windows vista if that helps. Many thanks

I had this problem exactly - go to the microsoft websit for errors and trouble shooting - had to do with anti virus scanning - It has something to do with files found in a system folder that should not be there - Microsoft s solution was to delete the files (yes this made me nervous too) so I copied everything to a folder then deleted the files - closed everything up -did a quick restart and rebooting of modem and router and opened up a new connection and no poblems

When you put the mouse over the network icon in your taskbar, it will say access: Local & Internet or local only.

if Local & internet you have a connection to the internet, if local only then open internet explorer, tools, internet options, connections and check that there is no default connection, it should be never dial a conection thats ticked or greyed out.

Hi - I recently set the security on my router but am having trouble connecting to wireless on my home laptop. All other devices seem to be ok (2 work laptops, IPad, Ipod) and I get a message saying that...


This error message usually occurs in windows vista & win7 if the settings saved on the computer doesnt matches with the settings in the router...
You can get rid of this message by deleting the list of preferred networks from your computer...
To delete the preferred networks, follow the method given below...
Open control panel > open Network & Internet(double click) > open Network & Sharing center(double click)
On the far hand side left you will have an option called "Manage wireless networks" If you click that, you will see the list of preferred networks that are already saved in your computer... Now select your network, make a right click and select "Remove network" Select "ok" for all the warnings...
Thats it..! you are done..! Now search for the list of available wireless networks in range, you must be able to see your network name without any error mesages... Select your network and click connect, it will ask for the network key(if you have setup one)... Enter the key and get connected...! You must be able to go online now..!

Just had a new wireless card fitted and I am trying to connect to my router


I recently purchased a new wireless card for my desktop, it was a Linksys 54g with speedbooster but after the switch the networks I was connecting to (Free wireless from my apartments) will no longer connect. The old card that I had was just an offbrand card which used the microsoft zero connection tool to configure, this new card attemps to use the software included and ive tried to switch between the two different connection configuration tools both can detect the routers but when trying to connect it does not even get to the aquiring access key stage. the router is not passworded so I guess I was just wondering can this new card not connect to the router maybe due to brands? possibly the router is belkin or something of that sort and this linksys card cannot connect? I had before gotten it to connect at the very good 54kbps or whatever the number is but it would not let me access internet and then said limited/no connectivity. I also tried to change the settings on my wireless card and set them to 802.11b only, 54g auto, 54g LRS or Performance but all had the same result, I switched the default channel to match that of the router as well still nothing.

How do I put security on my Belkin 54g router


You set your security by enabling WEP.

When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.

Belkin 54g Wireless connection problem.


This is more of an explanation then a solution, but to best explain what to do I have to first explain why this is happening. When you add security to a wireless router or ap you add extra envelopes to the packets of info being transferred, adding encryption to that makes it much slower because the ap has to encode all packets coming to you and un-encode all packets being sent to the Internet. In our time this happens very quickly, but in computer time I just described a lifetime. In addition if your signal is not 100% you might have packet loss "more slow down". Now the answer, in your ap setup pages you can setup wireless security, set this to Mac address authenication and add the mac addresses of all the network cards that have access to this ap. This is by far the fastest methiod of secure data transfer.

Hope this was some help...
