Are you sure that you need WINS? WINS is typically only used on a corporate network and is not used very often anymore. Whether you are using static IP's or dynamic (DHCP) you can still manually add the WINS server IP address in the TCP/IP settings of the adapter in question. If you're using DHCP, are other systems on the network getting WINS? Perhaps ths DHCP server is not set up (or not capable) to pass out the WINS server address.

Can't connect to router interface 192.168.1.1


Took another look by fixing word wrapping in notepad.

It's missing DNS Servers. Check your NIC settings and make sure you don't have a DNS server manually set to another IP. Plus, you might try resetting the router to default in case there is a DNS modification there.

I'm not sure if this is the cause, but I couldn't hurt. It's part of trouble shooting.

Good Luck!

To release and renew IP address, go to Start > Run. Type in CMD and press Enter. At the prompt, type in ipconfig and press Enter. This will display the adapter information such as IP address, Subnet mask, and default gateway.

To view additional information such as Mac address, DNS servers, etc, type in ipconfig /all.

To release IP address, type ipconfig /release.

To renew IP address, type ipconfig /renew.

If you are not able to get an IP address try setting one statically:

Windows 2000

Step 1 Right-click on My Network Places and select Properties.

Step 2 Right-click on the Local Area Connection which represents your network card and select Properties.

Step 3 Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. Enter your IP information for your network.

If connecting to a router, make sure the default gateway and a DNS server is the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

Windows XP

Step 4 Click on Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network connections.

Step 5 See Step 2 for Windows 2000 and continue from there.

My laptop cannot automatically pick up an IP address


Don't send it away.
To automatically get an IP addressed assign you must have the network adapter set to "Obtain an IP address automatically"
Check it from a command prompt
click on start | run| type in cmd to open a command window
type ipconfig /all in the command window and see if Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes is in the list of information, if not follow the guide below to change it.

DNS service and DHCP service are not normally run on a person's computer, these are services that run on remote internet servers, local network servers or router/wireless access points, to name a few examples.
You need to verify that your network adapter's TCP/IP settings are set to automatically obtain an IP address.
Go to network connections and open the window.
Find your network adapter and right click once on it and select "PROPERTIES" at the bottom of the context menu list that appears.
Usually this will be labeled something like Local Area Connection.
Right click on it and select properties.
In the window that open you'll see several items with checkboxes, find the one labeled
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click once on it to select it and then click on the button "PROPERTIES"
Look and see if the bullet choice "obtain an IP address automatically is bulleted, if not click in the circle to enable the bullet.
While in that properties sheet, make sure that the item Obtain DNS server address automatically is also bulleted (selected)
Click OK, OK
click on START | RUN and type in the box cmd to open a command window
in the black command window type the command
ipconfig /all
you should see an IP address, subnet mask and default gateway along with lots of other IP info
see if you've got an IP address in the list. If not type the following in the command window

ipconfig /release
this will force the IP to release any address it is holding
then type
ipconfig /renew

this will force a renew of the address

Reinsalled windows xp on toshiba notebook -- now wireless won't work.


Hi Matt,

When you try to connect wirelessly to your network did get any pop up message like asking you for a network key WPA/WEP? if your wireless network is security enabled then you need to enter the security settings again on the computer since you re-installed XP the security settings that was saved previously was also wiped out.
May I know the exact model number of wireless router/access point that your trying to connect your laptop so that I can provide you with instructions on how to retrieve the security key.

2wire 1800hg random no internet/random access, repair/wait fixes


It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."
