Wifi Shows Connected To Internet But Browser Won't Load Websites

My wifi shows i'm connected to the internet but the browser won't load any websites? I'm trying to connect my laptop to public locations such as schools and libraries so i know that i don't need a router since i won't be using my lap top at home. I can easily connect my wifi but every time i try to load a web page it refuses to load - instead it just says "done" in the bottom left hand corner. I've tried looking up my ip address by using run

Access Type - No Internet Access

I have a sony viao laptop, it works fine with my wireless network at home but when i take it to work & try and connect to that network it won't connect, i have windows 7, it finds the network no problem, i click connect, it says connected, but i can't get on the internet, in the connections window thing it says access type - no internet access, in the diagnosis thing it says there is a problem with the router but there can't be as every 1 else gets on the internet no problem, this also happened to me in a hotel network, its seems i can only connect to my own home wireless network.

Answer:-

1.control panel
2.network connections
3. Right click on your "active" wireless connection
4. Properties
5. Left click on "internet protocol tcp/ip"
6. Properties (which is under)
7. Look if you are using a stable ip or a static ip
. Stable ip= obtain an ip address automatically (and dns)
Static ip= use the following ip (and dns server)

If you are using a "static ip" change it for a "stable ip" (same for dns server), if you are not, then this will not work.

Cannot Access Printer Connected To Network Computer

Why can i not access a printer connected to another networked computer, even though i can access its documents? I have a desktop that has two printers connected to it via usb. The desktop is configured for network access, and is accessible by every computer in the house. I have three laptops with a wireless connection. All three can successfully connect to the desktop and see it's documents and connected printers. Only two of these three laptops can access the printer and print on it. The two laptops that can print have windows 7 and vista. The third laptop that cannot print has vista. It can see the desktop, it can connect to the desktop, it can see files, read files, and create files on the desktop. However, when i try to add the printer from the desktop to the list of printers on the laptop, it says access denied - however the other two laptops added the printer fine and can print without any trouble. Again, this one laptop that can't print seems to have full access to the desktops files. Any idea how to get this third laptop to add and send print jobs to the printer connected to the desktop "hub" computer? Because "add a new printer" button isn't working and continues to give me errors.

Netgear Router Connected With Limited Access

Laptop will not connect to wireless router but computer and phone are connected. I am using vista on my laptop and the wireless internet icon at the bottom right is showing that its not connected. However when i click on it to 'connect or disconnect' it says that i am connected to my netgear router with limited access. This is only happening to my laptop and it isn't anything to do with my internet provider as the wireless is connected to the main family computer and also my blackberry phone. Im thinking that some settings might have been changed on my laptop and this is why it is not working?

I have tried restarting my laptop, disconnecting and connecting again, removing the network connection and then starting from scratch adding it and entering in the pass code. Am i going to have to reboot my whole laptop and wipe everything and start from the very beginning?

How To Know Which Sp You Are Connected To Using Public Wifi ?

When you connect public wifi how can you tell which sp you're connected to? How can you tell which service provider (isp i mean) you're connected to when you do public wifi? For instance, i know starbucks & mcdonalds in the us use at&t. But how about when you're at some other location? Short of asking the workers who the isp is. They probably wouldn't know anyway.

Using Printer Connected By Wifi

How do you use your printer connected by wifi? I have just recently connected my printer to my wifi connection but i don't get how to use it now?

Answer:- my printer is wireless as well. What you do is load the disk into your laptop, or whatever your device is, then follow the instructions on there. Mine has me connect with a usb cable. After that, it'll instruct you to connect wirelessly with the network you use. I always have a problem with when i change my network. It has to stay with the same network or else it won't print.

Itouch Error When Connected To Wifi

Why does my itouch show an invalid error when i am connected to the wifi?

This doesn't make sense because it appears that i have a good connection.

Modem Access Internet On Its Own When Idle

I'm still using a (cough) 56k modem to access the internet, but recently it seems to have a mind of its own. My browsing/downloading speed is not affected, but when the computer is idle, it sends and recieves large amounts of data on its own. For example, when i just connected, i left it idle for 10 minutes. In that time, it recieved over 6mb of data and sent 2. 5mb. My initial thoughts were spyware or something similar, but i don't know how to investigate that further. Any ideas?

Unidentified Network No Internet Access

I left the laptop on my desk and went to eat. When i got back i had the yellow triangle on my wireless internet connection saying "unidentified network, no internet access. " I spent a lot of my time trying to google the problem and nothing has worked yet. I even tried system restoring back to a few earlier dates and i still got the same problem. I've restarted my internet card, tried doing router delete 0. 0. 0. 0 on command prompt, tried changing it from public to home, but nothing. One thing i noticed was when i did a diagnose it told me this problem. (By the way i use windows 7, it sucks so bad i've been having so many problems with this program)
Here is what is says, "issue found" "wireless network connection2" doesn't have a valid ip configuration. It also said something about my "internet protocol version 4 and 6 (tcp/ipv4 and 6) i think it said no internet access to both of them can't exactly remember but it sounds like its linked to the first issue. If you have any idea how to fix the problem?

Connect New Laptop To Current Internet Access

How do i connect a new laptop to my current internet access? I currently have a desktop computer with internet access through charter. I'm looking to buy a new laptop (with built in wifi), and i want to make sure i'll be able to connect to the internet on it at home and when traveling. What is the easiest way to do this? Do i need to set up a "home network" through charter, or purchase an additional data plan? This seems like it should be simple, but i can't seem to find a straight answer anywhere.

Dell Latitude D600 Can't Access Internet

I have a dell latitude d600 btw. So anyhow, i have a wireless router and the same internet works on my computer when it's connected on the lan thing but when i try to access the internet it says my ip is 0. 0. 0. 0 and it won't let me and the 'connection' thing says it is connected to my network and the signal is excellent. My dad and i tried contacting our isp but they said there's nothing they can do about it since it works on our computer. I told them it's because we have an invalid ip for some reason and they hung up. I even went to the store where we bought our laptop and they didn't know what to do either. And if you know what i'm supposed to do please explain it in a simple way because i'm still pretty much a n00b.

How To Connect To Internet With Desktop That Has No Wifi ?

How would i connect to the internet with an older desktop that has no wifi? I fixed my dimension 4600, it's older and as far as i know, does not have wifi capability. I would like to connect this computer to the internet but all i have is a wireless network in my house. Is there some sort of part i can buy that can make that happen? Because nowadays you can't do all that much on a computer without internet. Answer:-
You are correct. Your dimension 4600 doesn't have wifi capabilities. Does it not have an ethernet connection? A place to insert an ethernet cable? You could plug an ethernet cable into your computer and connect the other end to your wireless router. You state, "all i have is a wireless network"; usually wireless access points have ports in the rear where you can plug ethernet cables. If not, or if no ethernet in the computer. Buy a wireless network adapter that is compatible with the operating system you are using. If there are ports in the rear of the wireless access point, you could also install in your computer a network card with an ethernet connection. Either way, those are your two options. The reason i emphasized the statement about your operating system, is that if you are running windows 2000, it may be a little more difficult to find a network adapter; after all, it's all about xp, vista, and win 7 now-a-days. One last thought, and i'm mentioning this since you state your desktop is older. You can get network adapters that are usb; be sure if you decide to use usb that your computer has usb 2. 0. If it has 1. 0 or 1. 1, check that the usb adapter you are going to purchase will work with it.

Internet Is Connected, But Not Working

Internet is connected, but not working. How do i fix this? Okay so my computer had a virus that pretended to be an anti-virus program by saying that i had tonnes of viruses and prompting me to buy and download something to get rid of it. Whenever i used internet explorer or mozilla to access a site it would not let me and on the page it would say that it was unsafe to do unless i bought and downloaded their program. I found out that if i went to my mozilla browser and selected 'no proxy' in the internet settings that i could browse without being redirected to their fake block website that told me i had to buy their program to be safe and browse. So then i was able to download a program to remove the virus, which worked and i no longer had the virus. The next day or so i was able to browse as per normal without any interruptions just like i was before. However, the next day i used my computer again. Still no sign of the virus but even though i was connected to the internet i could not access anything apart from mozilla again. When i used internet explorer or google chrome it would just say could not be displayed and msn messenger wouldn't connect either. So basically i'm connected to the internet, but nothing is actually working apart from mozilla. I'm not sure if mozilla being the only program working is related to selecting 'no proxy' on internet settings when i had the virus. Note that the virus is gone, and i was able to use msn and such after this but now i cannot again apart from mozilla. Does anyone have an idea of what could have happened and how to fix this?

My laptop says connecetd to the internet but it is not. Right now i am on my brothers mac, and it has a perfect internet connection. My laptop is right beside me and it won't connect to the internet.

Computer Reboots When Connected To Internet

So, my brother has had several computer issues in the past, and all of them have been fixed by reinstalling windows and wiping his computer, great. Its getting a little old now though. His current issue now is that his computer will reboot the second it logs in to his user account, i let it run and reboot and just happened to catch it while it was working, went to the internet to download some stuff that might help fix the issue and it began rebooting again. I took out his wireless antenna and its working now but he needs internet, what could be the problem with it and how can i fix it?

I'm running avg, disc clean-up and disc defragger right now, just for the heck of it, not sure if it will help, and i've gone in and looked for weird processes and downloads and files, but that's about all i know how to do and it all looks normal, and avg hasn't found anything malicious.

Hack Into Computer That Is Not Connected To Internet

Is it possible to hack into a computer that is not connected to the internet? The reason i'm asking is because my best friend is going back to college in a few days and is dorming with one other guy. He's in the journalism program and is a bit paranoid that his roommate (who is in the same level in the program) might steal his documents and whatnot. There's wi-fi internet connection available in the dorm, but my friend does not utilize it; he says he 'only' uses his computer for typing up articles. I don't know how true that is, but whatever. So is it possible for the roommate to "hack" into my friend's computer (via another computer) even if my friend's not connected to the internet?
