Default Unable to connect to Internet via wireless inspite wireless indicating connected


I spent couple of hours in past few days trying to find out what's wrong with the wireless connection on one one of our computers. We have three laptops at home and two of theme can connect wirelesly with no problem, the third one says connected and signal indicator indictaes full strength but I can't access internet. I tried different things but untill now no luck. I can ping the wireless router but nothing beyound it. If I check ipconfig /all, the IP addresses seem to be valid. Cable connection works with no problem.
I checked the threads on this web but withou any luck. Does anybody have an idea how to solve this problem?

The laptop is Dell Precission M90 with Intel wireless card.
The access point is Buffalo AirStation WHR-HP-G54

Sounds like a tough one...

Open a command prompt and type ipconfig /renew all

see if that responds correctly... you should get a 192.168.xx.xx type address.

let me know

Check the IP, netmask and gateway on the other labtops that working fine, then shut down those labtops, and manually set these network information (IP, netmask, gateway) on the problem labtop and then test, see whether it works.

Here are some links which I think you can have a look if you wish:

Good luck...

Thanks for the advice,
I tried some of the things that you suggested but without any succes. I compared the settings of my network connection by using ipconfing /all on two laptops and it looks ok. I use DHCP for IP adresses and when checked, IPs are in the valid range. The strange thing is also that when I connect by cable, everything works fine. So for now I'm forced to use the cable

Default Suggestion:

Hi I had the exact same problem.

I have 2 laptops and an apple G5 all connected via a Belkin wireless router. The internet was working fine, then it just stopped working. I reset the router and my laptops were saying they were disconnected when the internet was working, but then cut out after a few minutes.

After many days of messing about with settings, this seemed to work for me:

- I went into control panel/ network connections and went into the properties for wireless connection. Under the wireless network tab I saw the name of my network under the preferred network section - Belkin54g(Manual)

- The thing that seemed to work for me was to change the setting from Belkin54g(Manual) to (Automatic)

- I clicked on the properties button and clicked on the connection Tab, the box (connect when this network is in range) was already ticked. I unchecked the box and selected ok.

- I then selected the advanced tap and ticked the 'Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection' box.

- I went back to the wireless network tab, clicked on properties,and selected the connection tab and ticked the box again and pressed ok.

- After this my connection turned to automatic and I was able to connect properly.

I really am no expert on networks, and don't really know if all of the above is necessary, but it worked, so hopefully it will work for you.

Let me know of any joy

Default Unable to connect to internet via wireless

I had similar problem with the ability to connect to the internet through a wired connection but not through wireless(dispite connection to network being indicated with good signal strength). XP 32bit operating system on a Dell Inspiron mini. Very frustrating. I tried many of the suggestions above without success. Finally, when I checked the Internet Protocol TCP/IP properties, clicking advanced, and then under the WINS tab, I disabled NetBios over TCP/IP protocol. Once I did this I was able to connect. Hope this works for others.
