So my fiance picked up a netbook and we can't get it to connect to my wireless network. It is an XP computer with Service Pack 3. It sees the wireless network, which other devices can connect to with no problem but when I try to connect it I get a limited or no connectivity error. I get the same thing when I try to plug the computer directly into the router. Occasionally it will just connect to the wireless, but it still won't connect to the router, let alone the the internet. Currently it is not connected to anything.
I have purchased the above for my daughter but I am unable to connect to the internet have tried our t-mobile dongle and also main connection from virginnet broadband, neither seem to work this netbook runs on windows ?
I tried my entire afternoon trying to figure this out but to no avail. Fortunately, I found this place out of my desperation for a solution. My netbook works very well in my home network but when I brought it to my workplace, I was unable to connect to the internet eventhough I could connect to the wireless network. Other computers and laptops were able to connect and use the internet well using the same router. I tried manually configuring my IP and default gateway based on what I read but nothing worked.

I have a netgear n300 WNR2000 v.2 router (which has the latest fireware as of today) and have connected to it both wirelessly and wired with my netbook. My netbook runs windows xp with sp3 and has all the lastest updates. My 2 pc's on the network are both wired and running windows 7 (both up to date with updates). I had no connectivity issues with any computers on any network ever until I got the pc's with windows 7. The 2 pc's see each other fine and they have zero issues as far as networking goes. Neither pc will interact with the xp netbook, and the netbook will not interact with either pc. I installed the LLTD on the netbook, which did allow the computers to "see" each other on the network maps. However, the computers still do not interact and say they are not on the network, even when trying to use the icon provided from the map to connect. In command prompts, all pc's and the netbook are able to ping each other with ip addresses. Only the windows 7 pcs are able to ping using net names though. When locating via "net view 192.168...", all the computers see each other and even display the appropriate names for the computers. However, using "net view pcname...", again nothing.I have selected netbios over tcp/ip, made sure the workgroup names match on all computers. The "net names" command showed no names saved in the cache.

I bought a 7" netbook with Windows CE Version 6.00 (build 3122). I can't figure out how to connect to the internet. The instruction manual says to click on the wireless icon, which brings up a window that, in the picture in the manual has three tabs, the third being "wireless information", but on my netbook that window only has two tabs. The "wireless information" tab isn't there and that's what I'm supposed to go to to connect to the internet. What do I do?
I have a lenovo netbook that used to connect to the internet seamlessly wherever I went. Now it doesn't even see any other networks in range. I tried to repair the wireless network connection - it could not complete because it could not connect to the netork. Wireless Zero Configuration service is started. I restarted the service - no difference.
Computer has windows 7 installed Windows Update.Now we can't connect to the internet.We get an error saying the computer cannot find the proxy server.We don't have a proxy server.We've never had a proxy.The settings are not set to look for a proxy server.But we still can't connect.The computer will connect to the wireless network, but we get no internet connection.
I haven't done anything on the computer yet (got to have internet to do that.). The home internet is in the wireless connections icon at the bottom right of the screen, but when I try to connect, it says it's unable to. Would installing 4 gb of ram have a problem?
my benQ joybook u105 cannot connect to wired internet. when i connect to modem, my netbook showed that the network is exist but no internet access. when i diagonas problems, it says the dns is not responding. But the modem is switched on already.
New wireless router was installed yesterday. I switched from Linksys WRT54G v. 5.0 to Medialink N. I hardwired to desk top first. Then I turned on my laptop and connected to the internet without problems. Next device = Acer Aspire netbook. The netbook receives a strong signal from the router but cannot connect to the internet.
i have Verizon network at home and office; at home i connect fine; at work it is connected but randomly goes from low to excellent but cant bring up the internet; all other laptops connect just fine except this one..
I cant connect to my sylvania netbook using WiFi. It says cant associate with it, entered network key code and nothing happens. It will say Native WiFiConfig started, associating with network, authenticating to network, failed to associate with network, repeats as it goes thru all the networks. What do I need to do to make it work? Do I need to add a new network?
I have a desktop computer using win 7 that works well with an hp c6100 series printer using a USB cable. I cannot connect wirelessly to this same printer from my netbook. both computers are using the same workgroup. When I tell the netbook to print it does not display anything, just doesn't connect to printer.
I have an existing wireless network, and wish to add a Netbook to it. The Netbook can detect the network, but will not join it. It says the signal is strong, but still will not join the network. The computers cannot detect the Netbook wirelessly either, although network discovery is turned on.
I bought 2 Sylvania netbooks for my kids. I was able to go wireless on my son's netbook since I found a small icon on the task manager, where I clicked and just followed the instructions. However, I can't find that icon on my daughters netbook, I've tried the control panel for internet connections but the "wireless" option is not there...
I have a Compag Netbook (running Windows XP Home Edition) which will not connect to the internet, however the wireless icon in the tray is telling me that the signal strength is good and that i am connected but i cannot access any webpage. I know it is probably not the modem as we have another netbook in the house which connects no problem, as does our laptop so i'm figuring its something to do with the Compaq netbook??
I've had a look at some of the other queries regarding this on the site and note that you recommend 'ipconfig /all' results so you can gain a better understanding of what the problem might be, so here it is below
Windows IP Configuration Host Name: Compaq-38184c6a Primary DNS Suffix: Node Type: Unknown
We purchased our son a Netbook for Christmas - all of our other laptops will connect to our MiFi (Verizon) device but NOT the Netbook?? It states Excellent Strength but after attempting to connect states Failed to associate with the unit.
The netbook was working fine on wireless network; didnt use it for a couple of days - now I cannot conenct wired or wireless; cannot see the wired or wireless modem , only MSN dial up. But the wireless modem light is blinking steadily. Otherwise the netbook is working OK - it even seems to boot up quicker than it used to)(I would reinstall the OS but it didnt come with OS DVD or a DVD drive ; so I didnt create a backup when I bought it. I have since purchased a USB DVD drive; this is one of two identical netbooks I purchased on black Friday - other one works perfectly?
So I purchased a Linksys E4200 a couple weeks ago from Best Buy (got the $149 price) and finally got around to setting it up last Thursday. Before I get to my problem, I am happy to say that I have not experienced the "blinking light" syndrome that seems to plauge a number of other owners. In fact, the E4200 is everything I hoped it would be ... except for one problem. I cannot get my sister's Acer Aspire One netbook to connect to it.
It's really strange actually; the netbook picks up the 2.4GHz SSID fine (it's set to mixed mode) and upon selecting it and I input the WPA2-Personal password no problem. Then, it takes forever to finally aquire a network address, like at least 3 full minutes (usually this process takes a few seconds). After that, it tells me it is connected to the network with excellent signal strength. Except, despite it saying it's connected, the Internet does not work at all. If I got into the details of the wireless adapter, it tells me that the router/network failed to give the adapter a network address.
Router is configured for manual setup, Wireless-G only, IP addresses start from 2, (range from 2 to 201).
I have a Gigabyte M912 netbook that used to connect to Internet over wireless through my old D-Link and had no problems with that.
With WL160NL it connects to the wireless all right, but it does not go anywhere from there. It gets an IP address, connects successfully, but no internet sites can be accessed. Pinging gateway (192.168.1.1) gives 4 request timeouts. Other devices (Acer A500 tablet, sever smartphones, even a blasted Wowwee Rovio) have no similar problems< connecting and seeing each other and connecting to the Internet.
1. I have no idea why that happens.
2. Restarting the netbook, switching the wifi module on and off, removing remembered network settings and inputting them anew etc. does nothing.
3. Manually configuring the netbook to use a predefined static IP address instead of DHCP did not work.
I have a netbook (ASPIRE ONE) with windows XP SP3. When I am at the office the internet connection fails frequently. The internet connection icon disappears after few seconds. But the rest of the computers that are in the office work OK with the internet. But at home, my computer work well, even the internet icon appears and remains. At office, there is a belkin300N router. At home, I have the same model but old version.there are computers with Windows Vista or Windows XP either at office or at home.
As of last night, I cannot connect to any of the wireless networks I use every day (my personal home network or my school's WPA2).
The signal strength is very good, but it says "Limited Access" next to the network name. Apparently "Limited" means "No" because I am not connected. Here's what happened:Lavasoft Ad-Aware was blocking a site that I needed to access. I haven't used Ad-Aware in months, and it did not even appear to be running. So uninstalled it with Add/Remove programs in the control panel. BUT, mid-way through the uninstallation, I got a blue screen and my computer restarted. When my computer booted back up, I could no longer connect to my home's wireless. I'm at school now and I cannot connect here either. Ad-aware is gone from the add/remove programs list, but there is still an Ad-Aware folder in Program Files. The folder still has a bunch of stuff in it, including adaware.exe. I dont see an uninstaller (but i havent really investigated that yet). so now i can't connect to any network. Here's What I've TriedRan troubleshooter. Useless. Turned off my netbook's wireless. turned it back on. Device manager says my Network Adapters are working fine. No yellow or red icons next to them. also tried resetting stuff with the command prompt. something about winsock and netsh. I don't know what I was doing though. just following instructions from other people on yahoo answers when i googled the problem.
Few days ago I started to get the following error message while trying to connect to the internet using Chrome and IE:"Unable to connect to the proxy server..."I don't have a proxy server configured - nothing is checked in the LAN settings page.In Firefox I don't have that problem - it seems it gets the proxy configuration from elsewhere.
In my device I am able to browse through & connect to my HOME wifi network ; But after connecting it says 'No Internet Access'.I tried connecting with my SONY Bluray , iphone , ipad , laptops -- everywhere same story.I am able to plug in the ethernet cable directly from modem & able to connect to network.I am not able to open the http://192.168.0.1 -- ( When I am plugged in the modem directly)
Following are my router details
