just last night after i was finished playing skyrim for the night, i saw on steam that i had no connection. so i looked towards the internet bars icon next to the clock and saw a yello triangle with a "!" in it. so i disconnected and reconnected but still the yellow "!". so i just decided i would try again tomorrow (today).when i woke up today it didn't have that error, so i decided to go to Internet on chrome, but it had that "webpage not available" (wouldn't work for ie either). i figured it would soon fix itself like it always had, so i tried playing mw3 on my xbox, but it wouldn't connect to live either o.o and when my mom wanted to watch netflix on the living room xbox, she couldn't connect either! then i figured out it was definatly my modem that was refusing to connect to anything.
Can anyone advise how I would go about fixing this. I am trying to connect to a network (I have a dell running on windows 7) and it keeps telling me that windows is unable to connect to the network-this is before I can even enter the security key. I know it is not a problem with the wireless because other people are able to connect to it fine.
I CAN connect to internet just fine using my wifi BUT I CAN NO LONGER connect to 188.8.131.52!!! Any idea how to solve this problem? I'm using a Dell Insprion 1545 and Win7 32-bit. I never had this issue before, jut popped up when I tried using ICS on a different laptop, an IBM thinkpad T42 also using Win7 and connected to the same network via wifi. Again I can connect to the internet just fine on all my laptops, but 192.168.1.1 (for my netgear router) returns "unable to connect" page!!! have verified (via ipconfig) that my gateway ip is 192.168.1.1. I have valid IPs on all the laptops, but cannot connect to router setup page.
For some weird reason, when I click on the IE9 Quick Launch Toolbar or the desktop icon, I get instantly kicked out of connecting the screen flashes for a nonasecond and the then back to square one.If I repeatedly try connecting via an explorer link in my INBOX, that will sometimes let me into IE9 and once there, everything works fine thereafter!I have tried to uninstall IE but I cannot even find it in the list of programs that would permit such, part of the OS I guess?Even when established onto IE(, it is quite common to have messages advising that a "website error occurred and unable to display page etc looking for solutions"..Alternatively I have tried to reinstall it from various sites but get the message that a "later version of IE9 is installed, please uninstall this first etc. etc." running round in circles all the time I am!Just as an offsider and to avoid another post, on this TSG site, my cursor won't work with the directional arrows any more????? I have to position the mouse curser where I want it and then start from that position to type.I have also noticed the same issue on non TSG sites, just wondering if it is my keyboard playing up or yet another problem to wrestle with.
im trying to connect my pc to my tv but i cant. i have like a 15 second video of what im trying to do. i am trying to use vga composite? the yellow wire with the sound (sorry im a noob with computers, correct me if im wrong with any of this) it shows that its connected. but i cant change the resolution of the 2nd.
When I open IE all I get is "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page." I know it is connecting to the internet because it downloaded the updates. I downloaded AVG, Adaware SE and Spybot Search and Destroy on another computer. I put these files on a cd. I tried to install AVG and Spybot but they wouldn't install because they couldn't connect to the internet to get the necessary files to install. I've had this problem on friends computer some time ago but can't remember exactly what I did to fix it
I changed my WPA password recently and have had no problem until tonight when I tried to connect for the first time on the windows 7 partition on my MacBook. It finds the network but when I try to connect it doesn't ask for the password, it just tries to connect and then comes up connection error and sends me to the useless troubleshooter. How do I tell it the password has changed?
There is a website I cannot connect to on my wifi connection, maybe it's my ip address? When I connect to my neighbors wifi I can connect to that site.I have tried start > run > cmd > ipconfig /flushdns.I have tried deleting all browsing data (cache cookies ect..)I have tried start > run > cmd > ipconfig /release and /renewAnd still nothing.Also I have tried unplugging my router for 5-10 mins to change my ip address and no luck there either.
I have a HP 620. And I cannot connect to the internet. The Wireless button on my HP is yellow, (I know regularly it's supposed to be white, but it's not.) When I click on the Wireless icon, it show's an ethernet cable and a computer with an X on it. It says " Not connected, No connections are available".
I am fixing my mom's cousin's laptop Dell Inspiron 1750, which is unable to access the internet. This system runs Windows 7 and can't connect to any router wirelessly. The ethernet port on the laptop also has some bent pins in it, so it can't connect through wire either. The first thing I did when I looked at this computer was connect it to my wireless router and I got the limited connectivity symbol in the taskbar. So I tried to ping and did ipconfig /release and /renew in cmd and that didn't work. I also did a /flushdns and that didn't work. So I went into the internet options and checked if the DNS setting were set to acquire automatically and they are. I have also uninstalled the dell wireless utility as I find it bloatware and unnecessary. I uninstalled the WLAN driver and reinstalled it and that didn't do anything. I then went into safe mode with networking and discovered that I was able to connect wirelessly there. So i figured it could have been the antiviruses (McAfee) firewall or malware of some kind. I downloaded malwarebytes and scanned and found nothing so I uninstalled malwarebytes and so I figured it was McAfee.
Most of the time, whenever I open a browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Chrome) it takes 5-10 seconds before it will connect to any websites. The tabs just show the 'connecting' symbol spinning. This happens even if I'm only trying to open a single tab. It's not because the computer is going slow or anything, because I can still access other programs or do other things within the browser like open new tabs, view options, etc. It's not a problem with my internet connection, because while the browser refuses to load a site I can use the command prompt to ping the same site and I get a response immediately. This has only started happening recently, like in the past two weeks.
I have a home network with 7 or 8 XP machines. All are on the same workgroup. All share EVERYTHING. All have passwords. All are logged in with an ADMINISTRATOR account. All can see each other on the network. They all talk to each other just fine. All the GUEST accounts are turned ON.I loaded Windows 7 on a machine, and turned on sharing for drive C: I gave everyone ALL permissions. I also went into the Network and Sharing Center. I had no idea what a "HomeGroup" was, so I went a few more menus deep and found the Workgroup setting. I set that up with the name of my workgroup.From the Windows 7 machine, I can see all the XP machines on the network, and they can see the Windows 7 machine. But when I try to view anything (drive C: , for example), I get the "you might not have permission to view this network resource....". I get the same thing when I try to log on to the Windows 7 machine from the XP machines.Since I can't log on to my XP machines, I also can't connect to, and use the printers attached to them.I basically want a big, open, flat network. No security at all between machines. What do I need to do?
1. i have 1 router with 2 computers.. i both checked their IP's using the whatismyip.com .. turned out they have both same IP.
2. then i went to Download Angry Birds to download the demo version of angrybirds.
3. my first computer could not download it, it says "unable to connect" , but my second computer can download perfectly..
4. so now, i bought the angry birds game from rovio, i used my 1st computer to activate the game, guess what, activation cannot connect, so i cannot activate my game in 1st computer, but can activate in my 2nd computer..
5. what can be the problem with my 1st computer? they have both same IP's?
Today, my house got new internet. Now, my desktop, which is plugged directly into the modem, can't connect to the DNS server. I have internet connection, since Skype and Steam both work, but any web browser only works about 15% of the time. Neither of the three wireless-connected laptops in the house are having any problems. I've tried a few things, but nothing seems to work.
Here is my ipconfig /all.

how do I find out my network password? or is there some other way to connect?I have been able to connect two PC's before with my friends Vista laptop and we usually just match up ip addresses and he puts in the network password and it works.I did the same thing with the windows 7 laptop and i can get to the network password stage, at which I do not know the password. All I know is that it isn't my log in password, my laptop's log in password, or my friends laptop password.
my PC is randomly having trouble connecting to the internet. It is showing a yellow triangle over my web activity icon. I am getting an error that says "Windows could not automatically detect this networks proxy settings." I'm posting on a laptop that is using the same internet connection.
My notebook is an ASUS G53SX - A1 with an Atheros AR9002WB-1NG wireless card. I was able to connect with a cable.
When i try to connect wireless i can see the network and even it's strength but when i try to connect i get the message "windows was unable to connect to xxxxxx network". the driver are up to date and i can connect with other laptops to the same network.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1. I'm on an Asus G51Jx laptop.I'm currently at my grandparents house, and naturally they have no idea what their wireless password is. In order to avoid changing it (and possible having some awkward confrontations with my uncle) I'm trying to connect to their internet using WPS (on a 2wire router, if that's any help).Now, I was able to use my blackberry to connect with WPS, but I haven't had the same success with my laptop. According to the Windows help site, I should be getting a window that looks like this, but all I'm getting is this window.
My laptop used to connect to the internet thru my wireless router,I've reset the wireless router, restored my computer to the last time it connected to the internet.I now get the message after troubleshooting that I do not have a default gateway.what should I do next?
