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

Connected To Router, But Internet Wont Load

I am connected to my router, but the internet wont load. Answer:- turn the router and modem off for a minute, restart the router and modem, restart your computer. This should work. If not, make sure that your wi-fi wasn't accidentally turned off. To turn wi-fi on/off, push "fn" and the wi-fi button(f11 depending on your computer)

Screen Freezes When Load Browser Page With Flash Movie

When i load a browser page that has flash movie, or if i load up guild wars, then the computer will completely lockup, the screen freezes, mouse/keyboard dont work, hard drive light is one solid color, and it remains like that forever, until i turn it off and back on. The weird thing is when i hit the reset button it actually wont make the screen freeze go away i hear/see the cd drives doing the power reset, but the frozen image still remains on the screen!

But when i power off and power on, it boots up again. Sometimes it will freeze again right away, other times it will happen after say 10+ hours of use. Anyone know what could be causing this? Mem test reported 0 errors. Prime95 wasnt crashing either. I'm thinking maybe its the video card?

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? I get the network all setup and the status bar says that i'm connected but when i go to safari it either says that it's connecting but it never finalizes or it shows me some sort of error message. This doesn't make sense because it appears that i have a good connection.

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?

Laptop Says Connected To Internet But It Is Not

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.

I am not a computer whiz so answers simply. Maybe step by step instructions.

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?

Phone Ringing When Connected To Internet

My phone will not stop ringing every time i connect to the internet, how do i get it to stop? Every time i try and do anything with the internet the phone begins to ring, and it is only with my laptop. Any other laptop and nothing happens. It only just stated about an hour ago, and when i answer the phone nothing happens. I've checked my task manager for any unknown programs running and no other processes happen as soon as the phone starts to ring. It wouldn't be so bad if i didn't lose connection every time the phone rang.

Internet Speed Slows Down When Network Adapter Is Connected

Why does my internet speed slow down when my sister plugs her network adapter in her computer? I have a wireless-n linksys adapter and she has a wireless-g netgear adapter. When her adapter is not connected to her computer, my internet is super fast. When she plugs it in, my internet speed slows down way too much. Sometimes it doesn't even load up any webpages. Our main computer in the basement is connected to a wireless-n router and i connect to our network called "linksys". She connects to the same router but her connection is "ng_profile"? I don't get it, i just want my speeds to be normal.
