Restored Computer To Factory Settings And Cannot Connect To The Internet

Oct 10, 2012

I just restored my computer (Windows XP) to factory settings and it won't connect to the internet. I'm running an ethernet connection. I tried to look up a solution online but nothing has worked. Also, Im sure its not an issue with the modem, because all the other computers in the office are connecting to the internet just fine. It's only this one computer?

Acer Tablet Cannot Reconnect To (Wifi) After System Restored To Default

May 17, 2012

I have been using my ACER tablet with my Netgear router for several months with no problems at all. Then last night I decided to restore my tablet to its default settings, meaning that all my programs, apps, files, etc., were erased. Then I rebooted my tablet and started from scratch, entering the requested information. Everything appeared to be going just fine until I turned on Wi-Fi and attempted to connect to my network (Secured with WPA2), which was available and showed Good signal strength. I clicked on it, then attempted to enter my password. As soon as I entered the first digit of my password, the option to Connect to the Internet immediately disappeared, becoming greyed-out. Repeated attempts to connect failed for the same reason.

I called ACER Level 2 Support and tried a couple of procedures which didn't solve the problem. One was pushing the Reset Button twice. The technician told me that I may have a problem with my router settings. He suggested that I go to a local fast food outlet and see if I could connect there. I went to McDonald's and was able to get on the Net without using a password. I returned home and tried again to connect, but still was unable to enter my password.

Would it make sense for me to completely disconnect my router from everything, then reconnect and go through that set-up process all over again? I guess I would have to change my User Name & Password, or whatever is required. Also, if I go this route, should I change my security setting from WPA2 to a different option -- WEP, for example? I just don't want to foul things up to the point where my laptop wouldn't work. I doubt that would happen. I recently received the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade which has been working satisfactorily; however, it does mean that I'm now attempting to start over from scratch with a different operating system.

I've bought the EA4500 and configured it to connect to internet. it works fine.however, one day after it, it can't connect to the internet anymore.†I go to the router setup page and try to manually connect it to the internet, but it keeps "connecting."

Can't Connect To The Internet After Downgraded To A DSL System?

Nov 5, 2012

I am using Win XP and am hardwired to a router (NETGEAR N600 WIRELESS DUAL BAND ROUTER WNDR3400). This was connected hardwire to a cable modem and I had no problems. I recently downgraded to a DSL system and now have problems connecting to the internet. I was asked to disconnect my router and the problem seems to go away. After reconnecting my router it may be fine for a day or two and then the problems start again. Internet drops off while using it or I get a message saying "web page not available because DNS lookup failed. If I bypass my router at this time I can connect. Both my laptop (wireless) and my desktop (Ethernet) are having this problem.Norton Connect Safe is also in use which assigns its own DNS addresses.

Cannot Connect To Internet After Virus / System Restore?

Apr 23, 2012

I have Windows Vista. So I had a virus that was making it impossible for me to open a web browser without it starting a fake security scan and spamming my screen with multiple browsers. I had no other choice but to do a system restore since I had this problem in the past and a system restore fixed my computer. But, after the system restore, I can connect to the network using a wireless, but when I try to open any browser(firefox/internet explorer) it says internet explorer cannot display the webpage or server not found on firefox. I've tried resetting my internet settings, but no luck. I also don't have an internet security anymore since I was trying to install Kaspersky, but kept having trouble installing it properly.

HP 735n Desk PC - Can't Connect To Internet After System Restore

Mar 4, 2011

I have an HP 735n Desk PC running Win XP Home with SP 2. It reached a point of only starting under "Safe Start" so out of final desperation, I used (F10) System Recovery. The computer is starting AOK now and I have recaptured a lot of data by uninstall/install of programs where I'm told "Your Data Has Not Been Affected". However, when I reached the point of needing to reconnect to the internet VIA a wireless home LAN utilizing a D-Link DIR-615 (ver 3.21) Router with (1) computer connected thru a USB Adapter WUA-2340 (all working fine) I reinstalled a USB Adapter DWA-125 (ver A1) {Which had been working OK} and I get message "No Internet Connection Available" altho' all other indicators are "GO" The Device is working properly and net work indicators are all showing the D-Link USB Adapters on both my Compaq (with Win 7) and the HP (with XP) are working. I have worked on computers for years and never needed to do a System Recovery before and I have NEVER had any trouble getting on a network nor the internet before. REMEMBER, the HP W/XP CANNOT BE USED TO DOWN LOAD. It won't go on line! I can use my Compaq if we can make CD's, DVD's, or Flash Drive copies of anything needed for transport to the HP.

Computer Will Not Connect To Internet

Aug 3, 2011

I am setting up two identical workstations at the company I work for. They are both brand new HP computers running Windows 7 64 bit. I set up one computer fine and added it to our domain. I tried connected the second computer and I can add it to the domain but for some reason it says "No Internet Access". I can ping our server and anything else on the network, but any website I try won't come up.

Most of the related issues I've searched for were all viruses but since this is brand new and has never been online that is not the case...unless an HP tech decided to play a cruel joke of course!

Could it be the network card? I didn't think so since it connects locally but who knows. I also disabled and enabled, took our sonicwall down and tried to obtain settings automatically, nothing works!

Computer Won't Connect To The Internet

Apr 22, 2011

My computer will not connect to the internet, it was working fine then all of the sudden disconnected, I have tried all the basic things like restarting the modem and using a different Ethernet, but none of those worked, so I am convinced that the problem is with the computer itself. I have it set up so that my netbook(which I am using right now) is wirelessly connected to the internet, and I have a ethernet cable going from the netbook to my desktop, giving the desktop internet(until it had this connection problem). I am using windows xp professional, and I have spent a lot of time browsing to try and fix the problem, but so far it is to no avail. First I'll start by saying when i try to repair the connection it comes up with the message " the following steps of the repair operation failed: renewing the IP address" I tried using ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew, but when I do this it says "an error occured while renewing interface local area connection: unable to contact you DHCP server. request has timed out" when I type in "ipcofig" it says my IP address is, after researching more i found out that this is bad, but when i try to renew to get rid of it it gives me the "unable to contact DHCP" message. I even tried reformatting with a different windows disc but the connection problem still persists.

1 Computer Can Connect To Internet And Another Cannot

Recently I have had to forward some ports in my router settings for a game... but now my mothers computer (running windows xp) cannot connect to the internet. My computer however can connect to the internet.

My main concern is why all of a sudden the computer doesn't connect automatically to the internet?

Computer Can't Connect To The Internet?

Aug 10, 2011

And I have tried everything I can to fix it in the last 3 days. It has always worked on my home network as a home network, and one day it seems to decide it's a public network. My computer has some limitations even with it being with administrator rights because it works from a school domain. And it happens to be that one of the few things that are limited is the ability to change a network status from public to home/work. Other Windows 7 computers like the one I'm using now can change its options, so why not mine? I have tried everything I can to fix the problem.

I started from the basics, resetting router, wireless, and all. Also, I tried a local area connection directly, of course this made no difference. I then went through every possible thing I could in the troubleshooter, still nothing.I then went straight for manually making my own static IP by finding the IP and DNS through the cmd and all, it made no difference. I even went to changing the option of "unidentified networks" to be recognized as private, but that didn't work either.I did this combofix utility process, but nothing came out of that either.

Wireless Computer Cannot Connect To Internet?

Aug 11, 2011

I have a HP pavilion p6736f-b. It has wireless capability. It has wireless lan 802.11b/g/n. I know personal it can connect to the internet because I have done it before. Now when i try to connect to the internet it shows that no networks are available. This problems goes away when I use my wireless adapter and it can find my network name fine and I can connect to the internet. I want to be able to use my computer wireless without any usbs since it goes faster and I also use plenty of usb so I dont have the ability to always use a usb for my wireless adapter. I think the problem might be connected to me connecting my xbox 360 manually setting the ip address default gateway etc.

Computer Can't Connect To Internet Under Any Circumstances

Aug 31, 2012

I'm trying to connect to the internet through a Netgear wireless N-300 WNR3100 USB adaptor, but whenever I try to connect to the network, it says "The connection was unsuccessful. This computer currently has limited connectivity to MyNetwork." I have absolutely confirmed that it is not an issue with the device itself, because I went through an all-steps process with a Netgear representative trying to fix the issue, and once we tried to install and use it on my laptop it worked without a hiccup. But wait, there's more. My computer ALSO refuses to connect through a Netgear Wireless N WN111v2 adaptor, so it's very clearly not an issue with the adaptor. And I've saved the best for last: The computer won't even connect to the internet when plugged in directly to the LAN through an ethernet cable.

I've confirmed that the port and cable both work by trying to connect my laptop to them, and it works just fine. So the only option left is there's an issue with the ports on my desktop. They apparently only have problems connecting to the internet however; plugging in any other USB device has them work just fine, and even when the adaptors are plugged in, they have at least some connectivity capabilities, since the network shows up and allows me to attempt to connect to it.
