Laptop Only Connects To Internet When Router Reset?

Dec 31, 2012

my laptop only connects to the internet when the router is off, then switched on. If the router is on when I turn my laptop on it won't connect, but it always connects when I do it the other way around. Other devices (like phones) connect to the internet via the same router flawlessly, it's just the laptop that, for some reason, needs to be on first.

Laptop Connects To Router But Not Internet?

Nov 24, 2012

My older Inspiron XP laptop will not connect to internet but connects to router. Local business tech said it was probably the hard drive & wanted to install new hard drive ($260). I feel perhaps I need to update driver for wireless modem, etc. But since I cannot connect to internet, I have no way of updating (I'm using my newer Windows 7 laptop currently which does connect thru the router). Can I download a driver onto a flash drive & install that way? Also, is there a way I can test the XP computer by connecting directly to the router with a cable & if so what kind of cable do I use to check if it will connect? I'm trying to research any possibility of fixing this XP computer because it's too expensive to fix hard drive. Also, everything else works on XP laptop, except Norton which needs to update & cannot without connection.

Laptop Connects To Wireless Router But No Internet Access

Aug 18, 2012

After a couple of hours using the internet, the connection stopped. The wireless router still had an 'Excellent' signal, but it also said I had no internet access. All of the other wireless devices in my house connect to the internet perfectly, including when right next to the laptop.I've tried disabling the firewall and resetting the computer a few times, but nothing seems to pick up the internet access. The troubleshooting guide tells me that it is a problem with the wireless modem, but quite obviously that isn't true.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 V1 - Laptop Connects But Showing No Internet Access

Apr 8, 2012

I am experiencing connectivity issues with the wireless part for several weeks.  The laptop connects to it, but it shows me that it does not have internet access.I also have a belkin router that I also use. So, when I have the connectivity issues, I connect to the other router.    When I use the Cisco Connect application, it goes on for a couple of minutes and then gives the message "If you are not connected to my router SSID name you can't update your router settings".

Laptop Not Connects To The Internet

Jul 11, 2012

Its actually owned by the charity that i volunteer for and is connected to their private network and the internet ,When the user logs on in the morning, the laptop will not connect to the internet, it will also not connect to the shared network drive, so i can assume theres a local connection issue too,the user has to restart the laptop several times before the laptop will connect.

Laptop Connects But PC Won't To Internet

Aug 9, 2011

I have a wireless router with my sky broadband account.My computer crashed and when I repaired it without losing files etc, it wiped the system clean.I had to go from Vista to XP as the pc never had a recovery disc with it.I have also recently upgraded to Windows 7 extreme, however the problem remains the same in that, the pc will not detect the wireless router. However, my dads laptop which I am using now, DOES connect to the internet.I have spoken with Sky support and after going through all the usual checks and tests, they have decided it is a pc fault.

Oct 26, 2012

Recently my laptop has had problems connecting to any wireless routers.

Now and then it will connect but not for very long - 10-15 mins max, then connection will be lost even though the signal strength is strong. It sometimes connects after it has been asleep for a while or when it's been turned off.

Laptop Connects To Networks But Not The Internet?

Jun 7, 2011

About a week ago my laptop stopped connecting to the internet for no apparent reason as it had connected just fine the night before. It's a Toshiba and the wireless router I use is a belkin. Every other wireless device from my brother's laptop to my Ipod can connect to the internet just fine. Even the PC connected to the router via ethernet cable can get online. I've tried unplugging the modem, resetting my IP address, directly connecting with an ethernet cable to the router, and resetting my router. My internet browser, IE, used to freeze up but I had a friend look at and he only managed to have it unfreeze[CODE]

I have a compaq presario that will connect to my wireless network but when i open internet explorer or mozilla firefox the page will not load and says that the server cannot be found. i don't think the router is the problem since i have a separate computer that connects just fine wirelessly and a ps3 that connects to the internet just fine. the only way i have been able to access the internet with the compaq is plugging it into the modem with the ethernet cable but i want to connect wirelessly.

Internet Connection Crashes When Flatmate's Laptop Connects?

Dec 17, 2012

I've had some trouble with this and I post here, because I ran into this topic which is almost the same as my problem.Recently I started renting out one of my rooms to this guy with a Windows laptop. Everything I have is Apple:- iMac (with Windows in dualboot)- Macbook (with Windows in dualboot)- iPhone iPad- Airport Extreme (that is connected to the modem/router from the ISP by cable to create its own, more stable, wireless network)I never had any trouble with this network, not when my Macbook is running Windows or when classmates come over to work on a project (some have Windows), but as soon as this guy moved in, the internet started acting weird.Example: The internet is working fine, but when my flatmate comes home and opens his laptop, the internet crashes. Any process that was already connected, continues to work fine (e.g. a downloading torrent-file), but any new "assignment" for the internet just creates an error in Chrome ("the page does not exist" or "the server took too long to respond" for example). At those times, I can't even connect to my router through 192.168.1.1, but the WiFi still works (I can stream videos over the network from iMac to iPad without a problem). After about 2 minutes, the internet is up again, only to repeat the above after about 10 minutes.

I now have denied his MAC-address access from our router, because it was impossible to do schoolwork or just basic browsing, but I would like to just give him access of course! (it's in the contract)I'm going to call my ISP tomorrow and ask what they think is wrong, but I'm 99% certain it's my new renter's laptop. He claims his computer is completely clean, but I'm suspecting there is some kind of process running that just clogs all DNS-requests (or am I saying something weird now?

Laptop Computer Connects To Network (seemingly) But Not Internet?

Dec 30, 2011

We have a fairly new (about two weeks) wirless network set up in our home consisting of a Netgear modem (with wifi, which I have disabled) connected to a Belkin N wireless router. Our ISP is Optus.

My laptop (which is running Windows Vista service Pack 2) was connecting fine since we set it up until about 2 nights ago. Since then, it has had trouble connecting to the network (windows tells me it's taking longer than usual) and when it finally does, I have limited or no connectivity.The internet works fine when the laptop is connected directly to the modem, and if I unplug the wire, it stays connected to the network wirelessly for several minutes before it drops the signal.

At first I thought it was because I was using the laptop at the back of the house (with the modem and router being at the front), perhaps the signal experiencing interference, but no matter where in the house I try to connect, it has problems.I also tried updating the drivers and uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers for the adapter in the laptop, with no luck.

P.S.
Xirrus pictures =

1. taken from the back of the house (not connected to the network) where the laptop is used a majority of the time. Although the strength isn't the best, there didn't seem to be any problems in the two weeks prior to this.

2. taken from the same room as the modem and router, connected to the network, but with "limited/no connectivity"

Laptop Connects To Wireless Network Kills Internet?

Apr 22, 2012

Title basically sums it up. Whenever my laptop connects to the wireless network in my house, it becomes unusable since nothing can no longer load. I have done a full virus scan and all, found no viruses, adware, spamware, etc. I also downloaded a program to check what programs are using bandwidth but nothing seemed out of the ordinary or enough to completely stop the Internet

Laptop Connects To Internet Through Ethernet Cable But Not Wirelessly?

Sep 19, 2012

I have just arrived at a friends house to stay for a while and my laptop does not connect to the internet properly through the wireless yet works perfectly when plugged into the router directly through ethernet cable. it is not the actual router's wireless that is broken because there are three other laptops that connect and work just fine.I have done several virus scans using AVG and Spybot Search and Destroy and other than incredibar nothing has been found so i dont think it is a virus. I thought it might have been the 6to4 adapter so i disabled to no avail.The problem is not connecting to the network as that works fine and every now and again i can get 10 minutes of internet use before it stops working. most of the time still saying i am connected to the internet for an extra 5 minutes then saying i have a local only connection[CODE]

D-Link DIR-655 :: Windows 7 Laptop Connects To Network But Not Internet?

May 24, 2011

I have a wireless network set up in our small office.  I just bought the DIR-655 and installed it (did have a very old Netgear router).  I currently have two wireless printers, a MAC and a couple of iPhones that can connect to the network and internet.  My desktop is plugged in and also connects fine.The BOSS just came in with his fairly new Win7 laptop and I connected it to the network, however, no matter what I try, it won't connnect to the internet.  I can see his laptop in the network, it can see my computer and it says that it is connected to the network.  It also says that it is not connected to the internet.  I ran the troubleshooting (by clicking on the "X" between the network and the internet in the Network and Sharing Center) and it said it couldn't find the problem.  The Win7 laptop has no problems connecting to the old network, nor any others that it encounters.

Acer Aspire 5741 Laptop No Longer Connects To Internet?

Aug 25, 2012

One of my laptops (Acer Aspire 5741) won't connect to the internet, it stopped connecting last night at around 9pm UK time. It shows an ! in a triangle over my Internet Access bars. When I troubleshoot the message is 'Your broadband modem is experiencing connectivity issues'. My Compaq mini netbook is not experiencing any problems though. I have tried resetting the router, removing and readding the home network and checking the security key is correct -I do also have a VPN from my university which has been installed since April without any problems. Both the laptop and notebook use windows 7 and Firefox.

Protocols :: New Router - 1 Laptop Connects But Other Won't

Dec 25, 2011

It says unidentified connection when we connect to the network, and when we go to the "connect to" and connect to the network i setup it will sometimes say "with limited access"!?I have used the diagnose tools on his computer. I have restarted his computer, the modem and the router. We have disconnected and reconnected several times to the network for the new router but nothing works, the only way he can get on the internet with this router is if plugged directly to it with an ethernet cable. We have put the old router back up but I really don't want to keep using it, it is so old and I don't remember the password for it.

I have wireless internet at home through a Belkin router.It used to work fine but one computer wouldnt connect. I tried checking the security password on my laptop and ever since it won't connect.

I've searched forums and can't find an answer to this.The laptop still connects to the wireless internet in my office so the wireless capability obviously still works.

DLink DI 524 - 802.11g Router / Work Laptop Connects Intermittently Only At Home?

Apr 22, 2011

I have an issue with my work laptop connecting to my home network. It will connect to the internet but only briefly and then the connection is dropped. I reset or repair the connection and I can get it to re-connect but then it drops again after only a minute or two. I tried to connect it to the router directly with a cable (turned wireless off) and had the same issue. This laptop has no issues connecting wirelessly at work or to other wi-fi networks I have tried. I have another laptop in the house that has no issues connecting to the home network & internet. The issue seems only to be with this laptop at home. The laptop is a Dell using 64 bit Vista. The router is a D-link DI-524, 802.11g router and I have a DSL connection.
