Default Internet problem

right, i'm not sure if this is in the right section but i assume the problem will be hardware.

anyway, i used to be able to access the internet fine then all of a sudden it stopped, all the other laptops/ computers in my house work fine. just my computer will not connect, my netgear says that it's connected etc but the icon on windows says it has no connectivity or limited!

i have no idea what the cause is, drivers need updating? if so which ones?

please help meeeee

Thanks

Aaron

Go to my network settings and click on view adapters and right click your adapter and do repair.

This could solve the problem

Default Re: Internet problem

I have one of the friend having the same issue since 2 weeks ago, she is using wireless router in her house and total 4 laptops are connected to the router and the router is using WEP security.

3 of the other laptops are still able to connect to the router except my friend one, she even borrow a USB wireless adapter from me and install it to the laptop and result still the same which is limited or no connectivity. But when she brought the laptop to my house and library , the laptop works fine. Is this the driver problems or what ?

Thanks and any help will be appreciated.

Aaron, I had this same issue with my comp, just reboot your wireless router and you should be good.

Default Re: Internet problem

While it could be a hardware problem, I want to say that you simply have too many wireless signals going around the house. What bandwidth is your router? 2.4GH? More than likely that's what it is. Besides all those computers, do you own a gaming console and/or cordless phones (not to be mistaken for cellphones)? These could all be causing interference. Take a cat5 (ethernet) cable and connect your laptop directly to the router. Does it connect to the internet now? Since other computers can connect fine, this is not a router issue. So it has to be either too much wireless signals around the house, or a problem with the software/hardware of the network adapter. A third, yet not likely, scenario is that 2 of your computers are sharing the same IP address. Do you have any static IP addresses set up? Can you log in to your router and confirm that all devices connected to it have different IP addresses?

okay that sounds alright, i will try it later when i get a chance, got alot of stuff going on.

i'm not sure how to access the router or what the logins are either.

i'll do what you've asked later and then repost the outcome.

Thanks

To login to the router, connect the ethernet cable so you know that you have a connection and then open an internet explorer and in the address field, type 192.168.0.1 and press enter. This will take you to the router homepage. The Admin passwords should be default, you can google your router type to get the appropriate router login. Try username admin and password admin.

Often the passwords and what have you, are found on the bottom of the router.
